Problem #1: Not working hard
More people than you think are just not putting in the amount of time and money that it takes to become successful online.
If you are looking for an easy way around the hard work, you are in trouble. There is no such thing as something for nothing.
Problem #2: Learning too much
Learning too much and not applying anything is a very common disease that a lot of online marketers suffer from.
While gaining knowledge is the key in your online business, you have to be practical or you will never see the results.
Problem #3: Believing in hype
Have you seen products that claim to make $5000 within 24 hours without even moving your butt?
While it might be very possible that the person earns that amount a day, it will most likely take you a very long time to reach a similar income level. You need to learn a lot and develop before you can reap the rewards.
Problem #4: Unwillingness to learn
That is a problem of people who believe to be perfect before they even get started online. If you have a closed mind, your odds of success decrease very fast.
Your best choice is always to have an open mind for learning, developing and growing yourself as well as your business.
Problem #5: Not building relationships
Some people say that they cannot do something because it´s outside their comfort zone. Well, your best bet is to simple look for more and more tasks that are pulling you out of your comfort zone because that´s where you make the REAL money.
If you prefer writing over talking, that´s ok but you still need to build relationships with people. Have a positive self image and start to talk with people over the phone or Skype.
Problem #6: Not providing sufficient value
That is a very common problem online. Most people will never write a decent forum thread, sales page, or read a book, not even after being online for 2 years.
The only way you get better is by putting your knowledge into practice, but certainly not by waiting for something magical to happen.
If you want to make massive money online, you have to love writing. Period.
Problem #7: Not upgrading your skills
That´s actually the same problem as not being willing to learn anything new. Your skills are your biggest assets and you can only reach higher revenues by gaining higher skills.
Skills are not developed by reading Ebooks or watching video training courses. No way! The only way you develop high quality skills like writing sales pages is by doing it.
Don´t try to find an easy way around the hard work, but actually be happy to work on tasks that are hard.
Problem #8: Not running split tests
Marketing experiments and analyses are 2 major factors in determining how successful you will be in increasing your conversion rates.
There are a great many resources available that make tracking traffic, CTRs, and conversion rates really easy.
Becoming an expert tester and you will see how much money you will be able to generate!
Problem #9: Being deceptive
Being deceptive is something that a lot of marketers like to do in the hope to increase their conversion rates this way. If these people would just realize that deceptiveness actually leads to their downfall, they would put more attention and focus into marketing their correct value proposition.
Problem #10: Not creating products
If you are not creating products, you are losing a lot of money in the long term. Plus, you will never be able to really build a brand around products or niches.
The reason why you might not be creating products is because of a lack of self-esteem. The first product launch is in most cases not successful but that doesn´t mean that you won´t have success with your second or third launch.
Creating products should become a habit. If you can create 1 new product a month, you are already producing more than 99.8% of online marketers out there.
Problem #11: Not offering coaching
Not offering coaching is another common issue due to a lack of self-esteem and results. Yes, you have to have some sort of results before you should start to coach anyone.
People want to learn from someone who has done successfully what they want to do.
Whether it´s 1 on 1 or group coaching, it helps you to build your brand in your particular niche as well as make you ongoing income.
Problem #12: Not reinvesting into your business
You can only get your business to higher revenues by continually reinvesting into it. If you are serious about making a lot of money, you need to reinvest month by month.
Saving is good, but trying to save every penny you make won´t get you to the highest income levels.
