On 09-09-09, some Internet marketers sold “get rich” info products and services using the date as some magical force to be reckoned with…they even tied it in to the “Law” of Attraction and “Good Karma.”
But less than three months later, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) started cracking down on fake income claims.
Today, the same sites where gurus promised wealth if you paid lots of moolah now make vague references to the money earned using their products and services.
But in the spirit of hocus pocus and numerology lotteryitis, I’m jumping to the front of the line to announce the 12-12-12 launch of “Mayan Heavenly Mansions.”* When you invest your life savings and transfer all your domain names to me, I’ll reserve you spacious living quarters in Paradise when you pass away any time after the end of the Mayan calendar (ergo, end of the world) in December 2012.
Ridiculous? No more so than believing that the particular date you buy a “get rich” product will make a difference in your online success. Don’t be fooled as 10-10-10, 11-11-11, and yes, even 12-12-12 rolls around. Timing a product launch based on “lucky numbers” is designed to manipulate your emotions to make a sale…not improve your Internet business.
To your online success!
