4 Reasons YOU are Failing to Make an Online Income

In these times of recession, job losses/redundancies, huge debts etc. Many people are turning to the internet to look for another possible source of income. However, most of these people, no matter how hard they try, never seem to make anything close to what they want to achieve online. In this article I am going to outline 4 reasons why this is happening.

Firstly, many of these people want to earn money for doing next to nothing. They see all these internet millionaires who only seem to have to send an email to make tens of thousands of dollars and believe that they should be able to do the same.

What they fail to realize is that these millionaires have been online for 5, 10 maybe 15 or more years. Working hard day in day out to build their business to a level where they don’t have to work hard anymore. For those of you out there who believe you can make millions online, overnight, with next to zero work, you are sadly mistaken.

Secondly, there are people out there who are scared of failing. They believe that they must do everything correct on the first try or they will be laughed at or shunned by the marketers who have already got a successful business running. I will let you in to a little secret you may not have thought about. Most of these marketers were in your shoes when they first started, the only difference is they were not as afraid of making those few failures before they tasted success.

As they have been in your shoes, most marketers will be only to glad to help with minor tasks or things you simply don’t understand. There are forums all over the internet where there are accomplished marketers only too willing to help those newbie marketers out with takes they once struggled with. Do not be scared of failure and do not be scared to ask for help.

On the other hand, there are those newbie marketers out there who are quite accomplished with the technical side of internet marketing. These marketers can build blogs, websites, products etc without any problem. However, some of them still fail in the long term, they make a few sales here and there with their first product but this sales slowly stop and their second product will be lucky to make one sale. The reason this is happening? They aren’t building a list!

I am sure no matter how long you have been online you will have heard someone say ‘the money is in the list’ or ‘success lies within your list’ and if you haven’t, you have now. This is possibly the greatest piece of advice you could ever be given online. Think about it, with a list you can sell to people on demand, whenever you need to, by sending an email and promoting either your own product or someone else’s. In the beginning you may only get 1-2 subscribers a week, but this number will grow as your online business grows and before you know what has happened you have a list of 1000s.

Finally, many newer marketers out there need a mentor. Someone who can teach them what to do and what not to do. Someone to walk them step-by-step down the right path, avoiding mistakes and giving them tips. Someone you can depend on and turn to in those moments when you are well and truly stumped.

The reason a mentor can be the difference between success and failure for a newer marketer is one I have already briefly mentioned. They have been in your shoes, they have taken those first steps before, they have made the same mistakes and been stuck with the same simple things. This experience makes them an invaluable asset to have when you are starting an online business and an asset which can take your business past beginner and to the level you always dreamed off.
