I have a feeling I will fail again, should I even try?

Been trying so many times that I am disheartened. This time round, I'm using swipe files on the email, opt in form and using facebook for advertising.

I can't stop but feel that I will fail yet again.... I'm feeling stuck. What now?

    hey there don't get disheartened!! This making money online stuff is not easy at all. Just keep persisting you will get there. The more the do this the more your learn...and hopefully this is side income until your able to quit your day job? or you maybe have a different reason but whatever it is persistence is key.


    ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME....has the brain power to do this!!!!

      Feeling so stuck doing it. Feeling the fear that I will fail again.

      Can't even hold a job for long, not even sure what's gonna happen.

      All this is making me panic and I just want to get some money out of it...... Really desperate.

      Which one do you really want? In 10 years you'll probably have the money to quit working and do whatever you want - WHEN you want. Feel me?
      No, i'm not "feeling" you Randall... That is just Boo Hickey...

    Look at everything around you that moves or can be used and then think again would they had said that what you are thinking, yes it is hard and worst part about society today in the MMO niche is that " If I build it they will come mentality".
    There is no silver bullet or magic button and you make $$$.

    Before we used to think how but now we do search so you have lost you ability to think of an answer, to come on here and winge because it is all too hard suggest you get a job ( just on broke) because MMO will chew up most times and yes you fail

    But hey the bloke who invented the light bulb wonder how many times he did it till it worked?? and you think he wanted to fail!

    Of course you should try again, but this time, try to do everything a little bit different. Try new strategies that you have not tried before and I am sure, you will succeed this time! Good luck!

      Very true. Failure solely exists for the purpose of learning and making progress. Yes, I said it. Making mistakes is making progress, if you learn something from it.

    "Failure is merely a way to define your determination!" - Yours Truly

    Definition of; 'determination'...

    1.) firmness of purpose; resoluteness.

    2.) the process of establishing something exactly, typically by calculation or research.


    Seriously, I've failed at almost everything you can imagine...

    School - dropped out 7th grade, overdosed at age 15, blew a full 'paid' scholarship to Ft. Lauderdale Art Institute, Lost $750,000 in assets and belongings by age 35, and that's just the tip of the iceberg!

    Put on your big boy panties, and get ready... Life has a way of teaching you 'exactly' what you need to know... in preparation for SUCCESS!!!

    Some of us just learn the hard way is all.

    Stick it out, test your ads, track your opt-ins, and conversions, and remember; "cultivate your list" - many of your first attempts will only strengthen your long-term results.

    If you believe you already 'failed again' - I'm guessing your throwing patties at the wall, just to see if the sh!t will stick?

    You get out... What you put in!

    Takes time, I failed consecutively for years, and in those failures, I learned 'exactly' what NOT to do... Which in any light, got me to do things right! (like the bloke; Edison, lol)

    Tough it out. You'll survive. What's the worse that can happen; "you'll end up homeless?"

    Yep, been there too!

    We at our core are a resilent breed, sometimes we need reminded.

    Thank-you for reminding me where I've been, as it gives me more reason to look forward!

    Don't give up! Stick with it, just keep tweaking your method until you start seeing results. I for one can say that social media needs a bit of trial and error before you get your marketing strategy right to start turning over results.

    This is not a good sign. These kind of feel will led to uncertainty in all aspect. Soon it could turn into depression. Then the chances of your success will decrease rapidly.
    Hope lets people to live and look forward. Don't loose your hope.

    The constant in everything you do, is you. It doesn't really matter what strategy you do, if you feel like you're gonna fail before you actually do, nothing else you learn will matter.

    What is your reason for doing this?

    Persistent is one of the MAJOR key.

    Stick with it, find tune.

    As long as you don't quit, you're on your way to success.

    Hope it helps.

    In all fairness you are probably correct.

    If you are doing what everyone else is doing it'll probably be a struggle then die.

    If you have no USP you are doomed to failure

    If it can be copied you'll fail.

    You are being fed B*S* along the way.

    Build a real business that you have a U.S.P./ cannot be easily copied/cloned....focus on that and that alone.

    Good luck. In fairness most people are not built to create/run a business. If that's you get a job and enjoy life instead of butting your head against the wall.

      If you think you are beaten, you are.
      If you think you dare not, you don't.
      If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
      It's almost certain you won't.
      If you think you'll lose, you've lost.
      For out of the world we find
      Success begins with a fellows will.
      It's all in the state of mind.
      If you think you're outclassed, you are.
      You've got to think high to rise.
      You've got to be sure of yourself before
      You can ever win a prize.
      Life's battles don't always go
      To the stronger or faster person.
      But sooner or later the person who wins
      Is the one who thinks they can.

    Your anxiety is normal.

    What is it you are trying to do? How does this align with your personal strengths?

    In other words, why on earth should anyone want to do business with you? If you can answer that honestly and with conviction, then you have a foundation to build on.

    If, on the other hand, you are just trying "the formula" with the same crap everyone else is trying to sell, then you are no match for the established players and you will undoubtedly fail.

    You don't have to tell us what you are doing and how you are doing it, but I sure hope you understand it and believe in it. If you don't, good luck getting anyone else to.

      Jack, in all due respect not so sure. Of course Anxiety is normal and actually healthy in some respects. But when I see words like "desperate" and phrases like "cannot hold a job" it just puts up a red flag to me.

      But like I said I'm no expert. I do I think stuff like this should be evaluated by a professional if it continues.

    You'll only get stuck if you limit yourself to that activity.

    IM isn't all about digital products and emails.

    You can consider any kind of business. IM by its definition, just means that you use the Internet to promote it.

    There is no success without failure. What you do with your failure is what matters. So find out what you are doing wrong and find a way to make it right. Life itself is a test. We fall and we rise back up again. Is what makes us strong.

    A swipe file isn't going to make you successful. You already know it's not going to help so do something else.

    It's ok to test new things but you need to know when to step away & move on. Social traffic is tough because a lot of times it's window shoppers that don't really care about the niche.

    So... in this case it could be as simple as forgetting about Facebook & target a niche forum traffic source, people that are already dedicated to a niche. I have no idea what you're selling but try another traffic source where you help other people where in turn they help you make money.

    Sometimes you have to give in order to get.
