Internet Marketers are spiritual in the new-age sense. They are examples of the new enlightened humans. Is that so hard to believe? Do you think they are just after money? I see a different side.
When I say Internet Marketers, what I mean is the huge industry of marketers who sell information products to other marketers who are learning how to market on the Internet. Whoa! That’s a mouthful. Marketing on the Internet is now done by virtually all companies no matter what their product or service. I am speaking of the sector of people who are selling systems and tools to make you successful at earning an income from the net. They are often called IMers and that’s what I will call them for this article.
IMers are not only selling their own products but most are also affiliate marketers. Affiliate marketing is like commission sales in the offline world. Companies pay a percentage of the sale to people who promote their products and services. The affiliate marketer commonly has a web site to promote from. When I speak of IMers, this includes affiliate marketers and usually are each others best customers.
I have written many articles and posts about how humanity is entering the next phase of human evolution. How we will completely change our behaviors and beliefs. I love to read newspapers and watch the Internet for signs that humans are awakening. I believe I have found in IMers, an example of the change of which I refer to.
About 18 months ago, with lots of time on my hands, I had the thought of using the Internet to communicate my feelings about where humanity is headed and at the same time possibly add to my already abundant life. I Googled “make an income on the Internet.” Explosion. There was pages and pages of sites that came up on how to do that. I had no idea that affiliate marketing or Internet marketing in general was this hugely popular topic. It was like another world that I did not know existed. The humanity of it fascinated me and still does.
I carried my new age beliefs and powers of discernment with me and waded in, keeping my credit card close to the vest. I was amazed at, first of all, the language of this sector and secondly, the personalities.
I was immediately hit by the words “guru” and “creating abundance” and “the law of attraction” and on and on. So many similarities to the concepts that encompass new age talk. I stood back and looked at the whole idea of what people were doing and saw that what was really happening was that people were examining their lives and rearranging priorities. Escaping the rat race of going to work everyday, creating income for their employers and not having enough time to be with their families and to do what it is they truly enjoyed doing. Creating income while at home seems to satisfy the desires resulting from that self examination. It takes courage and trust in one’s self to quit the security of a “job” to venture out into the unknown territory of self employment, yet it is happening in droves. From my perspective it is all part of the shift.
This is all stuff that I have said in previous writings as describing attributes of the new human. The concepts of self-empowerment and following your self and trusting that the universe will provide. It doesn’t matter how we get there or what path we take as long as we all arrive into the new consciousness.
IMers are doing what I enjoy doing. Attempting to enlighten and help people arrive at where their hearts are taking them by offering them perspectives, experiences and systems to do that.
Well maybe not all of them.
Some may be just in it for the money. As if have said before. If someone does something with the sole intention of making money then usually the experience they have will be short lived and unsatisfying. The person that is doing something that they love and are passionate about will have the power of the universe to help them achieve whatever they desire. This concept is repeated constantly by many IMers.
If I presented this comparison to the “gurus” of Internet marketing it would probably be met with derision and laughter as sometimes people don’t want to be labeled as new age or Oprah style religion. I would understand that reaction. I see a different picture. I will cheer on anyone or any sector of society who’s intention it is to truly help people empower themselves. I see that in the Internet marketing community.
Who are some of these gurus? Here is some that I see as fitting my view of enlightened beings.
John Reese is the first that comes to mind. When I read his ebook on The Rebirth of Internet Marketing, I heard a human that was sincere about helping people achieve their independence from the 9 to 5 world. I cheered when he wrote a blog post about no longer using affiliate links in his communications. You may say that he was already wealthy enough and didn’t have to make affiliate income but I looked at it as showing his true intentions.
John is just one example that I have singled out but I see many, many IMers that show me what they are made of. Whether it be a video I watch, an article or post I read or an action of them going out of their way to help another, I see humanity helping humanity evolve.
There are people like Ed Dale who just oozes passion for what he does. Watching one of Ed’s videos, it is easy to feel that his intention is to pass on what he has learned to help others. Ed’s enthusiasm is contagious and it shows by the huge number of people that listen to him. It is that passion for what someone is doing that is the key to creating what we desire. Putting in blah returns blah. Making money is merely the byproduct of being true to yourself by doing something you are passionate about. All of which are new age messages.
My B.S. radar is very acute and there is lots of it thrown around in this sector but I also see real people with pure intentions making a difference in the lives of others.
I was listening to a pod cast with Fran Kern and Eban Pagan (how’s that for a biblical name) and they spent a lot of time talking about how what we think and believe will manifest in our reality. Sounds like something I’d say. Frank made me laugh, which he usually does, because he kept saying “now I don’t want to get all new-agey on you.” Well I say “Go for it Frank.” This is what the shift is all about. Self empowerment. Following your self. The power to create your reality lies within. The universal law of attraction, which has been discussed in Internet marketing products exhaustively since The Secret.
I also resonate with anyone who I think says what they truly feel without concern for political correctness. Rick Butts is a prime example of a person who practices, what I call, speaking from the heart. With the new human there will be no more secrets. Openness and transparency are attributes of human behavior in the new age.
I don’t know any of these people personally. I could be out to lunch about them. I look at things from a wide perspective so getting too specific with guessing about each of these named IMers’ intentions is probably not valid, but I have great confidence in my ability to feel another’s energy. I feel and watch actions much more than listen to words. Actions are truer. What I see are many individuals who are awake and aware even though they may not look at it as I do.
The point of this article is not to single out any individual but to look at the overview of how Internet marketing is being used as a path to enlightenment. The gurus of IM are playing their roles.
I don’t care how this information is spread, just that it is spreading. Whatever form it takes doesn’t matter. We are examining our lives. Our priorities. Bravely stepping out of our comfort zones and having a complete overhaul of our daily lives. This is the stuff I watch for and love to see it happening right now.
Are people gravitating to the Internet because of the money? I see it as a step toward the change that I know is here for all of us. Using the Internet to create income is, as John says in The Rebirth, one of the fastest growing sectors for employment today.
I say, “Way to go guys!” to anyone who is making wholesale changes in their perspective of what this human lifetime is all about. Following themselves instead of the leader. Trusting in their abilities. Taking their power back to where it truly lays. Following their hearts instead of their heads. These are key factors in evolving humanity. It might be presented from a different angle, but it is all the same stuff.
You may not want to be called new age spiritually enlightened humans, but that’s how I see it.
