Are we really that Greedy? – RANTPosted by William
I just need to let off a little steam here. I am an opportunistic person. I seek out opportunities, take advantage of them and then charge like a bull. I love Internet Marketing because it allows you to really take advantage of so many opportunities, its almost impossible to not be allured by it.
But then things happen and it just frustrates me to no end. The last week or so has been a time where the world has stopped and reflected on the passing of possibly one of the greatest performers ever to live and quite possibly, who will ever live. I’m of course talking about Michael Jackson, the undisputed King of Pop (you can tell I’m a bit of a fan, I’ll admit that).
I understand its human nature. I understand people will seek out opportunities. I understand there is a level of greed in what we do as entrepreneurs as well as Internet Marketers. However death is where I draw the line. I have been on countless forums over the past week with people celebrating their purchase of a cool domain name with talk of how much money they are going to make by ‘flipping it’. Yeh well I got news for you… be prepared to be disappointed.
www.michaeljacksonhasdied.com is not going to make you money. All it does is show you how far you will go to make a buck. To be honest, you are the people who fail. You are the people who give up. You are a weasel. What does this tell me? It tells me you put money on some kind of crazy pedestal and are so obsessed with it that you have no focus or drive. You are looking for the quick fix and the magic touch which will give you your break through. I’ll tell you now, its not coming.
I guarantee you none of the top marketers and entrepreneurs have gone out and purchased a ride on the back of the MJ bandwagon. They have better things to do, like grow their businesses and create fantastic value. In return for this they will be reimbused handsomely. All the while you try and claw back the $8 spent on your golden domain.
