Probably The Most Common Mistake That Everybody Makes?

Hey folks,

how are you doing today?

What´s in your opinion the most common
mistake that everybody makes in the
Internet Marketing industry?

After doing a lot of observation, (not only
from other online marketers, but also from
what I did in the past).. I realized the following
mistake that occured over and over again..

Doing too many tasks at once, and doing to many
different things that actually contribute very little
till pretty much nothing to their income..

Spending countless our socializing on networking sites,
actually focusing on too many things at once..

If you´re not investing at least 70% of your day with
working leads, closing, promoting products, you will
not grow and develop as you could..

Spending countless hours on FB, might be nice from a a
social perspective, but does this really add value into your
life, and increase the likelihood of you making a full time
income and moving towards your goals?

Probably not.

And trying to become excellent in 5 or 8 different aspects
at once will lead you to accomplishing absolutely nothing..

I´ve experienced that by myself, and seeing most of the entire
industry busting and not succeeding because of a lack of focus..

This message is definitely focused on helping you out with this
issues and fixing this leak, or at least reducing it from now on.

I´d really love to hear your thoughts and personal experiences about
this topic, and I´m very passionate about hearing the truth from
you folks!

Let´s be honest to see where we are at!

Keep going,

Gerald

    Hi,

    Its easy for me. When I first started it was going from one business model to another.....then focus becomes important...results then follow..

    Take care

    The problem with sweeping generalisations like this is that they're simply not true.

    There are a million ways to make a million bucks.

    Cheers,

    Yes I agree jumping all over the place is probably the biggest problem for beginner Internet Marketers.

    Because there is a million ways to make a million bucks on the Internet beginners don't know all the routes available and when they are presented with an infamous amount of them they don't know what to chose.

    It is not a clear cut path. Everything is a piece to the vast puzzle. Even when people offer step by step for this and that. There are so many other pieces to that puzzle that a beginner needs to know. They get frustrated and hop on another train.

    I know when I first started I heard the word FTP time and time again and thought it was something that just naturally floated around on the Internet somewhere.

    I often see people getting started out of desperation. They make posts asking how to make $X in X days. Then when they do, they spend the money on whatever they needed it for and are back to square one.

    If you're ready to spend your entire life feeling desperate, then by all means, keep doing what I just described. Most people want to build a business, though. You can't build a business without setting a foundation and a foundation needs a plan.

    If times are tough and you need money now, then get a job. Mow some lawns or shovel some snow if you have to. Just don't be like the jokers that throw together some words and sell them as a $7 WSO hoping to earn a couple of hundred to pay their light bill.

    Once you've shoveled enough snow, set some money aside and put together a solid foundation for an online business.

        Not understanding the fact that there is another human being at the other end to whome you are going to sell your product/service.

        You must give value and make good relationship before you can sell anything.

        Considering Internet Marketing as a way to easily make some money is absolutely foolishness.

    The biggest mistake? Maybe its jumping from one formula to another. People certainly want instant results, and certain ebooks promise them that when internet marketing dont. Most of us fall into this trap and we tend to implement something new again even when we dont fully exerted our effort on our first method.
