Misguided glossary of internet newbie entrepreneurs -
by an experienced (if a bit jaded) marketer


Advertising:
I spent two whole hours placing free ads and nobody bought anything at all.

Advice:
Stuff the "oldies" tell me. Just because they are successful, they think they can tell
me what to do.

Banners:
Something you put everywhere you can....don't know why....you just do.

Business Plan:
I want to do this MY way....now tell me how to do it....fast

Commission:
When do I get paid? What day is the check sent? How much is it for?

Enrollment:
I signed up....now when do I get paid?

Focus:
I plan to follow advice and focus totally on my new business opportunity....except....
I saw a plan where "they" will do the work for you...and of a special tool to use with
a different business....and why don't I also work on this other product while I'm at it.....

Goals:
To be rich....soon

Investment:
Money I have no intention of spending on my business

Long Term:
About two weeks.

Marketing:
I told all my friends....now what?

Multiple Streams of Income:
What i want....lots of money coming in....and I want it NOW.

Patience:
I am a very patient person....but if something doesn't happen soon, I'm going to lose it!

Persistence:
I tried it twice....what more could anyone expect?

Question:
What I will ask again and again until you give an answer I like

Work:
You mean I have to DO something?

-------------------------
This is, of course, just for smiles....but sounds familiar, doesn't it? Feel free (newbies, too) to add your own "terms".

....Audubon birders are now tramping the Mississippi coast with binoculars and journals in hand, hoping to catch a glimpse of the ever-elusive "jaded marketer"...
