Are you a Sherson?
Ok Some of you will be saying what the h*** is a Sherson?
this is what Wikipedia has to say.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sheeple is a term of disparagement, a portmanteau created by combining the words "sheep" and "people."
It is often used to denote persons who acquiesce to authority, and thus undermine their own human individuality. The implication of sheeple is that as a collective, people believe whatever they are told, especially if told so by authority figures, without processing it to be sure that it is an accurate representation of the real world around them. The term is generally used in a political or religious sense. The singular form of the term is "sherson," however, the plural form is most often used.

Does the definition sound Familiar?
It should If you are one of the mass of people that still follow and hang on every word of the so called Internet "Guru's" and follow exactly what they are telling you to do to build your business!
Why do so many of you still insist on posting your program links in every nook and cranny that you can find on every site you are a member of, and even some you are not a member of? Just look at what happens in every forum, bulletin board, Social network site, that there is to find.
Even if posting is not allowed in some areas of those sites you STILL get those that will post anyway.
WHY? The answer is simple. The Guru's have brain washed you all and turned you into sheeple. You no longer have the power to think for yourselves. You no longer have the power to stop and ask yourself some very basic questions.
I am going to ask those questions for you and hopefully make you STOP blindly following, and START thinking for yourself.
Why do the "Guru's" tell you, you have to :-
join every social site there is?
join every forum you can find?
join every bulletin board you can find?
post your referral url at every opportunity you get?
Yes yes I know the Guru's say you need to get maximum exposure to get referrals!
But if everyone is doing that what do you end up with ?
Thousands of posts all for the same program and then what are the chances that someone will click on your referral link?
I can tell you your chances are about the same as a snowball in h***'s chance of not melting - ZERO
ASK yourself this question.
Have you seen those "Guru's" posting their referral links in all those places they tell you to do it?
The answer is NO you haven't, So WHY NOT? after all they keep telling you that is how to do it so why aren't they doing it?
The answer is they KNOW that by doing it the poster gets branded as a spammer!
They KNOW it does NOT enhance your public image.
They are prepared to let you get your hands dirty, and keep theirs clean.
They hope you will bring in a few sign ups to their program for them. But they don't care if you do or not.
They know some will bring in referrals and build their program for them and they just sit back like puppet masters pulling your strings.
And worst of all, you let them because you act like sheeple blindly following their every bidding.
Most of the sign ups in programs do not come from the thousands of spam ads they come from the personal mailing lists that people have built up over the years.
They come from people that write good articles and have built a trust relationship with the people that follow what they write.
When they do a casual recommendation for a program they will get people joining because those people have learned that the writer does not spam the crap out of them at every opportunity they get, instead they have spent more time helping their readers with things that have brought them no financial gain.
These people have earned the respect and trust of their readers and they did not do it by posting thousands of ads all over the place.
Its time to re evaluate how you work on the Internet.
Its time to cut those strings and start thinking for yourselves.
Its time to start earning the respect of other people.
Its time to use social Networking as it should be used.
First build relationships through communication on any and all subjects.
If some one asks a question on a subject and you know the answer then give the answer without expecting something in return.
Doing this is a process that takes time but the relationships you build will last and that should be your primary aim.
