Have you ever seen this image? It’s the eBook of The Rich Jerk. Yes, that annoying, over confident cartoon man, that is telling you how stupid you really are working for a boss in a nine to five job. He is rich, and you’re not!
From his “official” website:
Let’s get something straight. I’m a jerk. I’m obnoxious. And I’m lazy.
And I don’t care, because I’m FILTHY RICH.
I’m much too important to even be sitting here writing this right now. So I’ll keep it short.
I make several million dollars every year on the internet, doing almost nothing. You can see some proof here but please keep the drooling to a minimum.
Have you seen proof like that anywhere else? Didn’t think so.
Do you make that much money? Didn’t think so.
Overall, it’s quite amusing to see that a guy like this is able to make a good living from this business. Because there wouldn’t be so many sites like The Rich Jerk, if it wasn’t paying off. Plenty of suckers buying into this smooth talk, looking for a way out of their ordinary, boring lives.
You might think, how the hell does anybody comes up with this stuff? Simple, copy from people who did it.
The above ad is from 1950, where you can sign up to be trained to make it in the radio or television business. Through a proven system, you can learn how to make it in American’s greatest opportunity field, radio or television. The similarities are striking between the two;
- Testimonials of previous buyers of the program
- Free equipment, in the form of a radio transmitter vs. a website
- You will not need any previous experience to succeed in the program
- Using these programs will make you rich?!?
In the Nineteen fifties the radio & television industry was booming. Man power was in short supply, especially trained specialist.
You could get rich fast, and start immediately after a training, which could be finalized at home.
Now in the age of the Internets, everybody can start a website. Its super easy to buy some traffic, and start monetizing with an affiliate program through reviewing products. But what is easier than to sell a ‘proven’ system on how to get rich quick. Everybody would like that! The booming internet industry has created many new opportunities for people who want to work from home. And with webmaster welfare, it’s so easy to start collecting an extra pay check.
Let’s be real, the only people who will make money from these programs, are the people running the program. Over the years more and more ‘get-rich-quick programs have come onto the Internets. The price of The Rich Jerk program has come down from $199, to $49, and is now heavily discounted at $9.95!!! Which essentially means,
The Rich Jerk is desperate to get new clients. Will we see the rich jerk at the well fair office when he blew all his money?
Damn, I whished I was a Rich Jerk!
