Reason Number One: System!
Most IMers will never spend their dedicated focus on a proven, simple, automated system/model for earning money. They will drift around from different things, different shiny objects, distraction, spinning their wheels, reacting, dabbling and blaming.
Most IMers will never have even the simplest system fully functional. They will dabble on the brink of a fully functional system, but never follow through all the way to the finish line.
The reasons are plentiful as to why they never focus on one proven system. What are these reasons? An entire book can be written why, and entire careers are built on helping people with these challenges.
Reason Number Two: Traffic!
You want to know why most IMers are terrible at traffic... and why MOST will never get traffic... and without traffic it's pretty hard to make money online... which equals failure. Want to know why?
It's in reason number one above. They never have a fully functional system to send that traffic to. They never get an automated system set up and funcational, to allow themselves the luxury of JUST focusing on traffic. Let's say 90% of their time could be spent on JUST driving traffic... and they'd make money... lots of it eventually... but that never happens because they are still reacting, bouncing around, distracting themselves and STILL (even 10 years later for many) dont have a system set up all the way.
I mean, if you have a half-ass system set up, that was just tossed up online, to see if it sticks against the wall, you're surely not going to focus your 90% on traffic. Let me put it this way, how on Earth could you fail if you spent most of your time and focus on traffic?
Actually, let me put it in an even different way... how could you fail if you focused all your focus on traffic for the next year? It would be better than bouncing around for the next 10 years never earning anything worthy of making a financial dent in your bank account.
Reason Number 3: Technical
This is not that big of a reason, but it is reason enough to include here. Most want money from the Internet but are not willing to either A) learn technical stuff or B) pay someone to do it for them. Therefore, well, this is an easy one and does not require much insight from me.
Reason Number 4: Conversions & Persuasion
The reason I put persuasion is because that's how I think about the art of crafting killer offers. Pound the word "offers" into your brain. Offers are what make the world go round, and offers are what sell. Sure, copywriting is important, but if you have a killer offer, copywriting is not as important. I could have the worst salesletter and webpage in the world, but if my offer is the best in the world, I'll make a bunch of money promoting it.
BUT --- most will never get that far... most will never know copywriting... or focus on increasing their conversions... because they are still not there yet in the steps! You see, if you have tried selling a "copywriting" product and it did not sell well, it's because most in the market are not that far yet. They are still not even to the traffic stage. However, if you focused 90% of your effort on traffic (from above), you better believe you'd start then focusing on conversions. Just trust me on that one.
What does the market want and need? Craft a killer offer for giving it to them. Holla'
Reason Number 5: This one might sting a little.
First, let me say that if you ignore this one, or discount it off as Personal Development mumbo jumbo, then I'm here to tell you that is a HUGE FREAKING MISTAKE.
Number five reason is the biggest one of all, and it should be listed as number one. I personally think it is the number one reason people fail. And, if you made it your mission to fix this problem, or master it, or change it within you, you'd make more than you ever dreamed possible. Seriously.
I've seen it enough in so many people now, that is it undeniably the main reason. It is self-confidence. Yep. You've heard about it, you've learned about it, but do you realize how self-confidence starves your dreams away?
Let me put it this way... if you have low self-confidence (even subconsiously without realizing it)... you will not:
set up a system
focus on conversions
ask for JV promos
ask for anything
and so on...
Plus, if self confidence is lacking, you WILL:
want it done for you
look for magic buttons
seek significance (ego) which cripples everything
and so on...
Everyone battles self-confidence. You are not the only one. But, every millionaire I know has built up their self-confidence to implement things fully... and that's why they do the things they do. They get blasted, but still keep on trucking along. For many newbies, one blast... or one hate email from a subscriber, and they are toast.
For me, I used my books, audios, videos, friends and mentors to cling to... and I mean CLING TO... to build and boost my self confidence. If I ever felt low in that area, I simply listened to Brain Tracy, Tony Robbins, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, etc etc etc.
You can quickly go over to youtube and get your fix of self confidence boost. But, to ignore this as PD mumbo jumbo is a bad idea. It's a costly idea. Boost your self-confidence, and the income will explode for you!
