Right after I wrote Tuesday’s post about sleazy self-help gurus, I remembered something I saw a year ago. Last September I was at my ex-girlfriend’s place when I came across an infomercial advertising the “Shortcut to Internet Millions” system:
Now if you don’t have time to watch this clip, it goes like this…
The video features two girls (Tina and Kelly) in a low-cut top describing how easy it is to earn money from the Internet. In fact, they claim all it takes is “three clicks” and you’ll have an Internet business ready to make millions of dollars.
What’s Wrong with That?
There are many things that piss me off about this video.
First off, you gotta love how the creator (Jeff Paul) found two girls with large breasts and put them into a low cut shirt. I know sex sells and all. But in my opinion, Tina and Kelly come across as moronic “valley girls” who think you’re dumb enough to believe what they’re saying. In a way, the creators are trying to suggest that if you buy this program you’ll get money and women.
My next issue is Tina and Kelly use the word “magically” way too much. They’re basically telling you that all you have to do is order the ‘Shortcut to Millions’ system and the cash will automatically fly into your bank account. I don’t know which is worse: That Jeff Paul thinks people are this stupid OR that they’re really are suckers who fall for this crap.
Finally, of course we have the man himself – Jeff Paul. Like many “gurus,” there’s shots of him and his wonderful life that he lives…all because of his online business. He wants you to drink the Kool-Aid and buy his line about being an expert wealth builder. I’m sure he does make money. But all of his income is probably due to duping and conning people who don’t know any better.
A Shortcut to Internet Failure
Like the title suggests, I feel buying any system like this is a direct route to failure. Now I don’t believe there are too many hucksters of this caliber. However you should know there’ll always be someone, promising an easy path to Internet success.
Sure, there are times when you can relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor (like how I’m able to travel right now). But without fail, these periods of enjoyment are due to good old fashioned hard work. Well, I’ve ranted enough for one week. Just remember if anything seems too good to be true; it probably is!Take Action. Get Results.
