What's your single biggest challenge in starting or growing your online business?

by NEXTGENPRO 26 replies
I was wondering if I could get your advice on something...

I'm putting together a series on how to start make more money with your part time business than from your full time job.

I was wondering when it comes to starting or growing your online business, what's your single biggest challenge or frustration right now that keeps you up at night?

I would really like to know your thoughts!

Thanks Warriors!

    My biggest frustration on IM is Google Algorithms
    I've tried to rank my site with many efforts, money and time, but Google Algorithms always changes from time to time.

      What kind of business model do you have? Do you specialize in CPA offers for example, or do you sell digital products?

    Its I think, actually, the challenge of breaking the "old way" of marketing to get through to your target market.

    By that what I mean, when one approaches the market with the old "winning formulas" to attract market, it no more works!

      What would you consider "old ways" as opposed to "new ways" of marketing?

        For me, its finding and investing new funds and time into my new media business (not new indeed I have been working on it since 2010). I'm shortage of both right now. It seems I have to burn through some $400K by November-December 2017. Its very hard, and I'm fighting.

        Coming to U.S this year is another challenge. I have to talk and attract new investors, including Gary Vaynerchuk. So basically, I'm quite nervous.

          Finding the courage and time to meeting and building rapport with real, successful people outside of the virtual world is the main problem, I think, most aspiring IMers face.

    The biggest challenge to start up and flourish a new business is to develop, engage and convince the community of target buyers. Branding is a great challenge but your prompt response on social media comments help to win the confidence of potential buyers.

    There are different challenges and I think getting enough traffic and promoting products properly are the biggest challenges in online business.

    • Profile picture of the author NEXTGENPRO
      yes I could understand that. What specific challenges are you having while promoting products? Also are you saying that you are exhausting your traffic sources, or are you looking for ways to scale?

    The number one challenge for any business, especially a newer business, is being successful.

    Successful longevity is scarce in the world of startups.

    And, even if you're successful now, the future is unknown and therefore never a guarantee!

    I think the ideal thing to tackle first when growing a business is by starting to promote it with online sources.

    Staying focused is the biggest challenge for many people when trying to build an online business. I know for sure it's one of my biggest problems. When working to build an online business, you'll be faced lots of distractions. The hardest part is choosing one thing and sticking with it until it works.

    The temptation when starting online is to try every single method to make some money. The challenge is learning how to stay focused and accomplish your goals. I'm pretty sure if you surveyed most people trying to get started online you'd find this to be one of the most significant challenges they face.

    Getting distracted by retirement and all the toys that have rightfully be afforded to me through my Intent Marketing endevours.
    I mean come onfolks trying to decide if I want to drive the Lambo or Bentley to my office can cause major distractions. Im sure you guys can commiserate

    Seriously, I think as you get older distractions include embracing the things that mean the most to you like family, passionate hobbies, church etc.. and they can sometimes get in the way of things but in a very good way

    Biggest challenge? How to make a great looking design that will be easy for users visiting the website. But for this I would actually turn to pros at design and website building, even found a company from which I just love their work.
    Other than that, I guess proper SEO will be also some work to do.

    Consistency.

    It doesn't matter how great your site is, if you're not consistent with it, don't waste your time.
