Are You Addicted To Buying Internet Marketing Products?

Are you addicted to buying Internet marketing products? In this article I am going to discuss why this is bad for you and your online success and what you can do about it.

There are many Internet marketing products on the market and new ones come out every day promising certain things such as more money, more traffic, more subscribers, etc. The sales letters have been written in such a way as to entice you to press the buy now button and buy into the promises that are made in the sales letter. However, many of these products are either the same as those before them, or they are new fads.

One thing we know about fads is that they never stick around for long, they are here one day and gone the next.

However, there is a huge amount of satisfaction from buying something that sounds really good and that everyone else is buying into and that feel good factor can cause many people to become addicted to buying Internet marketing products.

If you are one of those then think about the following.

What have you bought?

Have a look in your bank account or PayPal account and look back over the last six months or year to see how much money you have spent on Internet marketing products. You might be surprised at how much you are actually spending!

There is nothing wrong with purchasing training material that is going to train and teach you and to improve your knowledge and skills. However, if you are not increasing your online success and basically that comes down to making money, then are those products really worth it?

What have you made?

Now I want you to have a look at how much money you have actually made during that same time period. This might be a little bit more difficult for you and if it is then one thing you need to do straight away is to create a spreadsheet so that you actually monitor what money you are making.

Have a look at the two values. How much you have spent and how much you have made? Are you in profit at the end of the day?

What to do about it

Building an online business is about developing your own set of skills and becoming an expert in what you do. If the products that you purchase is not improving your self-development then are they going to be worth it in the long run?

There will always be times when we need to find out how to do something but if you don’t relate that back to your business and how to incorporate it so that you develop your business mindset then is that product worth it?

Next time you are presented with a sales page just think about what is being offered and whether it will actually develop your business or whether you will be buying into a fad. Also ask yourself, are you willing to put in the effort to implement what you learn because it doesn’t matter how great a product is, unless you actually take action you will never see success.
