No Black Hat For Me…

I firmly believe in maintaining the principle “no black hat for me. Thanks but no thanks!” If you’ve looked at your inbox lately there are numerous offers from people who can’t see the difference between “then” and “than” in their headlines, but want to make you believe THEY have recipes for online successes amounting to hundreds of dollars a day using their specific brand of black hat techniques.

In case you’re wondering, I am a very optimistic guy with a lot of creative ideas, but it truly p*sses me off that some people will use long-term thinking – and do unethical work (black hat) – to achieve a living when long-term AND high-quality content will earn you a far better income. Long-term is KNOWING you are building your business whereas beginning in the black hat market is the avalanche way OUT of this business. Online income is for those who BUILD BUSINESSES and who are determined to deliver high quality to their audiences.

Never Compromise

That is the reason why I never compromise. I won’t have anything to do with it. Regardless of whatever network these people may have harvested my e-mail from, I won’t stay on such lists, ever. My guarantee to you – as a valued reader of this blog – is that I never compromise.

If ever you compromise you lose your online credibility, and I won’t ever recommend doing so – either, today or tomorrow or any other time.

Have a nice sunday. Carpe diem. 🙂


Please do let me apologize for being short in this article. I can’t sit next to my normal seat, but need rest for a bad knee that happened as a result of falling when walking the dog. So, unfortunately, I am a bit less online than I normally am, but – no worries – I will be reading e-books while having the leg up, so I will be back stronger than ever.

    Let them, Henrik. Don’t be p*ssed off. You cannot change them. Time will prove what method is the better.

    I agree in one sense, Britt. But in another, I have seen many articles and reviews which have focused on black hat methods when others have wanted to show what the industry is all about.

    Fact remains that a serious sales letter with no fluff – just facts – will sell badly online whereas it would have been viewed as credible and worth investing in in offline scenarios.

    What happens is that some of the bad methods get far too much publicity, and all the good long-term stuff is overlooked by many.

    But I agree. Long-term things will speak for themselves. Those of us who will be around in 5 years from today will be testimonial to what worked. I fully agree… 🙂
