Make Millions While You Sleep – Beware!

New product offerings, or new "shinny objects" as they are often referred to can be one of the most damaging and distracting events in the daily life of a new aspiring online marketer.

The reason is that they:

* Confuse the new marketer because he is given a new direction with more promises of quick success.

* Consume an enormous amount of time

Of all the shinny objects out there, few are worse than the automated money-making systems and software.

The software option is not new, but in 2010 and 2011, there was a growth spurt of epidemic proportions in "new" software that absolutely automated the road to a fortune. A lot of these scams would offer you bait at a very affordable price.

If you declined the offer, you would be taken to another page with the same wonderful product at a discount. It's not uncommon that a third discounted offer would be presented at a price that the excited new marketer just couldn't pass up. So he finally bought into the offer.

When he tried to download his bargain miracle software he found himself congratulated as he faced another sales page, telling him how his new miracle software would only produce to its full potential with the purchase of several additional components. But of course he could keep his discounted purchase and it would produce some results, but nothing like the full package at several times the price of the original purchase.

Enough said about these distasteful sales tactics. It's quite likely that many people reading this had the unhappy experience of going through something like this at least once.

So, why are people attracted to these automated products?

It's because people try other strategies like affiliate marketing, SEO, article marketing and find that they are a lot of work, they seem complicated and worse yet, they are slow to produce results. Everyone is telling them that they can get results quickly, so much so that the new software packages can get results over night with no work at all!

The automated systems and software make so much more sense. Anyway, they are supposed to be the only thing that works after all the changes to the search engines. SEO is dead, so you have to move on to the latest software solution.

The automated software will eliminate all the time and effort that were previously required to generate traffic, sales and follow up with potential buyers and customers.

And it makes sense!

After all big businesses and corporations have been automating every function you can think of, and they keep looking for more ways to automate. So, why shouldn't an online marketer take advantage of the latest technology to automate this industry too?

Isn't it a fact that all this repetitious internet marketing work should be automated?

Many functions can, and have been automated, but human judgment is needed all along the way to produce results. You can't just push a button, go to bed and get up to a full bank account by morning. May be some day that will happen, but we are still a long way away from it.

Unfortunately, this shows that these automated software packages are a scam. The only people making money from them are the promoters.

While there are tools that help with some of the tasks needed in SEO, they are usually confined to automating the installation and operation of blogging systems. However, there still needs to be human intervention and decisions all along the way.

Automated article generation is a case in point. You usually end up with articles that don't make any sense, and sentences that contain many meaningless words. Google and Social Networks such as Facebook and Twitter have developed their own smart systems to identify machine generated content.

Therefore, you should know, and accept the fact that you need to learn to market online. There are a number of different approaches that work, but you have to learn what they are and how to implement them.

Writing and submitting articles to the article directories for SEO purposes is just one of the alternative online marketing avenues open to you. A few Google searches will reveal many other choices.
