I'm sorry, but I had to write this article. Because what I've seen is the huge internet marketers out there getting rich (quite wisely) off of you, and it bugs me. Well, it doesn't really bug me, it just seems like everybody out there doesn't see this. And I want you to see this!

Even though I have nothing against their methods and strategies (because they are genuinely doing something that helps people), I don't think that you are getting the all-important information. I want you to be the next Sam Brannan. Let me explain.


Many horrible things can be said of Sam Brannan, but one thing you cannot say is that he wasn't smart. He was the first millionaire in California, and the first millionaire from the aspects of the gold rush. You may think that he struck gold, began a mining company, and retired in the mountains of California as a rich young dude. But that's not the story. He actually became rich off the backs of other gold miners. He didn't get rich in an illegal or otherwise shady way. He simply opened up a local store that sold shovels, picks, and pans. When the rush of folks deciding to get rich by striking gold came, they needed these supplies, thus giving him all of their money in hopes of creating wealth for themselves.


Now what do you think these internet marketers are doing? They are selling you Market Samurai, TKA memberships, Blog Blueprint, The Best Spinner, and tons more software programs that will "help" you succeed in this niche site building market. I mean, seriously, you are most likely (currently) spending more money per month trying to dig for gold, then the amount of gold coming in. Am I right?

It's literally a gold rush with the emergence of the internet and massive information intake. With the amount of affiliates out there, you can drown in knowledge, and at the same time drain your bank account while trying to make your niche site happen. Think again my friend. What I want to tell you is that, not only could you build a niche site without all of this help, but you're able to succeed without spending a dime. It's possible! People are doing it!


Look, I don't want you to sit there and think that these programs are bad. Or even that these internet marketers are breaking your back to get rich. That's not true. They are normal people, making a living by being smart. If you'd like to be like them, create a storefront for helping people create niche sites. Become a Sam Brannan.

I'm only writing this because you need to know that:

  1. It's possible to create a passive income without spending a dime (write for InfoBarrel, HubPages, or InfoPirate for example).
  2. You can create your own software to sell to others (this is another way to create wealth).
  3. You don't have to create a niche site to obtain a residual income.
  4. The top internet marketers own the stores, while you're out digging for gold.


These are just thoughts that I had to get out. I'm very content with creating niche sites and writing articles. I have no desire to build software or anything like that. I truly enjoy digging for gold! So I'm not trying to be a hypocrite. I just honestly haven't seen this truth being said, so somebody had to say it. Take it how you want to take it and I sincerely hope you are successful in whatever endeavor you decide to choose. Good luck to you!
