In some industries, you can launch a business and cater to customers directly without having to rely on your competitors to help further your financial success. But often, in the Internet marketing world, relationships can mean the difference between a $2,000 product launch and a $200,000 product launch.

You can't isolate yourself from others because of the possibility to create powerful Joint Venture partnerships where you each bring something to the table and increase the profit potential of your offer. If you plan on becoming a wellknown marketer, or someone who may not need the spotlight but wants the same kind of financial success as the so-called "gurus," then you need to maintain your integrity.

Without integrity, your business will wither and die. Once you land a bad reputation – whether it be with others in the 'net marketing field or directly with customers seeking your products in your niche – you won't have the option of choosing whether or not to isolate yourself because others will make that decision for you. In order to boost your integrity in the business world, you want to be honest about who you are and deliver what you say you'll deliver.

If you present yourself to a buying public as an authority on how to make money online, then you need to deliver real ways to make your audience believe in you. If you fail to deliver or misrepresent yourself by saying you're an overnight millionaire when you're really living paycheck to paycheck, then you've drained your reputation of any integrity you may have had.

People want to work with people who have an abundance of integrity. It's more important than the level of financial success you've had. You may make $10 million, but you did it by being sneaky and scamming people. Others would respect someone who had made a mere $10,000 – but did it through an honest approach and quality means.

Try to maintain your integrity in everything you do – both in an out of the business world. As your strengths shine through, your success will rise and you'll overpower many other marketers who are operating in unethical ways just to make a quick buck.
