Why marketers fail...

9 replies
I've been sitting around recently, wondering why a huge number of marketers fails making any decent money, and there really seems to be just one answer for it...

...since getting things done online is so quick and easy, you can literally have a website up and going in 30 minutes if you know what you're doing, many people assume that making money on the internet should be quick and easy as well.

In reality, making money online is no different than making money in the "real" world. You still have to figure out what you want to sell, make sure there is demand for it, and then... you have to FIND your clients.

Very rarely will they just come to you. You have to look for them, and that takes TIME.

While making money online quickly is possible, it can ONLY be done if you already have the offer and the customers figured out.

Creating a product or a service for them is easy and fast, so if you know for a fact that what you have will sell, and you know exactly who you're going to be selling it to and how you're going to be contacting them, you could literally put something together today and be in business by next week, with money in hand.

(I've done it before and I've also seen it done by others. This is NOT the norm, though.)

The norm is this:

You have to go out there and GRIND.

Don't quit. Don't lose focus. Stick with it and adapt as you have to.

It'll take time, but you'll get there.

    Nice post, mate.
    Agree with you.
    I think the main reason why people don't suceed is because they give up to soon.
    Every person should know that you MUST fail before you succeed, there is no way around it.
    If you fail, it means you going on the right path.

    You can fail one time, you can fail two times, you can fail hundred times before you reach succees, just dont give up and keep going.

    It could be because their sites load so slowly as to be unusable...like the one in your sig.

      What do you mean? it ONLY took 28 seconds.. and only 8 seconds when doing a refresh 4 lines of text and a video.. AND then there is no way to pause... or go back.. all its missing is the red screaming pop up screen with the windows warning at this point.

      What year is it?

    One other thing I wanted to add to this.

    I get people who contact me all the time, wanting to get started doing email or sms or whatever, and they literally have budgets of $10-$20.

    When I see this, my first thoughts are this: Go and get a job and save some money so you actually have a chance of success. Businesses need money, time, passion, love, and dedication.

    Having money on hard to get the right tools you need is going to allow you a much greater change of being successful.

    Profit On!

      Yes. Exactly.

      An internet business is... a business. Would you open an offline business for $20-$30? lol

        I could share some business models that could be done just like that.. probably not even that much invested actually.. depending on what you have around the house.

        Its currently winter and that guy with a $20 snow shovel.. probably could make a killing depending on where they live. MY 10 yr old son so far this winter ( and it has been very mild here ) has made over $600 ( he didn't have to invest in a shovel tho )

        Spray painting house numbers on curbs... 2 cans of paint to start.. $12.00 $20.00 a crack 4 set of numbers per can ( if not more ) $160 in a day is probably not to far off the mark.

        After a storm with down trees.. if you happen to have a chain saw... could be a huge landfall and an entry into tree trimming etc full time.

        Collecting pallets at $10 to $20 a crack - this one depends where you live.

        would you like me to keep going?

        Failure has NOTHING to do with TIME other than HOW you spend that TIME.. Success is an ACT and NOT an idea!

    What I believe one of the biggest reason most marketers fail is they run out of cash before they found how the things actually work, how they need to do the business, What is working for them.

    so what a marketer should do he must be aware that how much cash flow he needs to find the winning stuff.

    Because if they can find the winning stuff before the run out of cash then they are not going to fail and they can simply replicate the winning stuff and can keep making money and money.

    Great post i think what also tricks people are the successful internet marketers who have figured out the game and they make it seem so easy. It feeds into people emotions and allot of greed and desire starts to kick in and you end up believing that it should easy for you also make money online. Not knowing that it It took them years to in order to master their skills
