Be Skeptical of Internet Marketers

If you’ve been in the online marketing world for any length of time, you’ve probably wasted money on a poor course or a bad piece of software.

You may have even wasted a pretty penny on some coaching or a mastermind.

In general, you’ve likely seen outrageous claims and promises of BIG results, with little work.

For all these reasons (and more), you’re likely skeptical of internet marketing in general.

Over time, some things just naturally make us skeptical.

It’s like a car salesman telling you, “This is the lowest price we can offer — we never go this low.”

Or your buddy who got a hole in one, yet miraculously it was the one day he was golfing alone…

But believe it or not, I WANT you to be skeptical of internet marketing!

Here’s why…

Over the years, I’ve worked very hard to separate myself from lots of the BS that’s prevalent in the online marketing world.

And because of that, you’ve noticed.

You open my emails, you read my content, you watch my videos — and you actually look forward to it.

Because you know when you open an email, it’s not going to be a pitch for the newest course that just hit the market…

Or a pitch for the latest “must have” software.

There’s gonna be something in it worthwhile for you — some days more than others.

So your skepticism actually gives me an edge!

Because when I DO tell you about my coaching and programs, guess what?

You might be interested!


I want you to take a look at the screenshot below.

I’m really proud of this, because this is someone who joined my Shopify Coaching program with no eCom experience, and very little FB ads experience.

And when she discussed the program with us, she was SKEPTICAL.

But despite that, she joined.

And when things didn’t go perfect from Day 1, her skepticism returned.

“Will this really work?”

But something funny happened…

As she followed our process and got support, her skepticism slowly began to fade away.

Each day she saw better and better results…

Until today, when she posted this message in our community for everyone to see.



Besides the skepticism she discusses, I really want you to pay attention to her last two statements.

First, she references how RARELY you come across a business that turns profitable in a YEAR, yet we helped her start a profitable business in a MONTH.


And then my favorite line…

“Lots of courses claim to be able to teach you how to do this, but this is probably the first I’ve seen succeed.”

That’s unfortunate to see, but makes me very proud at the same time.

We work hard to make that happen for as many people as possible.

Do you ever find yourself so skeptical that it prevents you from taking action?
