Because 90% of the time, they don’t want to do SEO. They heard or read a success story and understood that it made good money, so the first thing they do is read an article and claim to be an SEO professional.
Almost every day I get someone sending me a private message asking me if I need guest posts or if I can teach them.They focus on metrics that were popular three years ago, and their way of thinking is not “what is most important for my client, what is going to move the needle?
Their pitches are all about “me me me me,” “i i i i i i” but they don’t give a damn, because they do not enjoy what they are doing enough to spend every day working on their craft.When I first began I read and worked my ass off till 5 A.M to do the same thing at 10 A.M. I minimized sleep and things that distracted me, and I worked my ass off.
Most of these people wake up to send private messages spamming others with their “AMAZING” guest posts, that nobody with knowledge is going to buy.
Do you want to learn SEO? Okay, go, and learn SEO. Do you want to make money? Do something you love to do and not something you’ve read that makes a lot of money.Because SEO and anything in life only make a lot of money if you spend enough time in it to be good at it. Good enough to grow as a person.Sure you can make a quick buck when you get lucky and get a client, but how long is it going to last if you have no idea what you are doing?
