95% Chances of Failure in Online Business, Why?

8 replies
Every day, more and more people look for a way out of the daily grind and find a better source of income. Working at home and setting up an online business definitely fits the bill. That is why a lot of people have made the switch with hopes of making it big someday.

On the other hand, there is a ninety percent chance of failure in online businesses. Unrealistic expectations play a huge part for this figure. A lot of people start out with little to no preparation at all. Most of them seem to concentrate only on the rewards without thinking about the responsibilities that go with it.

    the industry "SEEMS" to be easy, working from home on your laptop or computer, Heck that doesn't sound as hard as cleaning toilets or building a house... But when you get into this industry you realize there is a lot to learn and a lot of work to get your business up and running!

    Those who get in here and fail only fail because its harder than they thought. They want a lottery ticket they don't want to learn how to do it!

    I personally think most people fail because they don't take any action. They read and learn about any online money making methods as they can, but they fail to implement any of them.

    I should know, I was once one of those people. Picking one method, getting excited about it, reading and researching about it no stop for day. Then working on it a for few days. and of course since there were no results for a few days of work, I thought, "well, this method doesn't work, its juts another BS". So I would move on to another and another method.

    I kept doing this for a while. Jumping from one method to another. Needles to say, i didn't make a dime. That changed when I started my first real blog and I kept at it, I worked hard, I committed myself and applied what I learned and eventually I was able to make real money, enough to pay my bills and then some!

    So, yes, from personal experience, I would say, lots of people fail, because they dont implement what they learn. They think because its the internet, its easy and quick to make money. Sadly, thats far from the truth. Making money online is just as hard as making it offline in the real world, if not harder.

    And just like in our offline world, in order to make money online, you have to DO SOMETHING!

    People fail because...
    1. They don't take action they buy WSO after WSO but they never actually put the information into use.

    2. They give up after one or two failed campaigns failing is perfectly fine in business just as long as you learn from it and keep going.

    3. The biggest one is they fail to realise working online is still a business as such you need to treat it like a business. You need to work hard to grow the business then you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.

    95% peole only treat online business in a easy way. When they found some people really earn a lot of money on some niche.So they follow the ideas. But when they really do it. they found it is not easy any more to catch up with the one who win the first gold.when people found some business is profitable. It means it is down and down in future.That is why most of them would give up to make good effort to promote it.even they never know how to manage a better business.

    Niche doesn't money ,only skill is the most important to earn money.

    Here's the thing... everyone fails... and successful people have failed a ton more than unsuccessful people. The only difference is the successful people build upon each failure and use it as a learning tool....

    Like ramone_johnny said above, it's about learning a system. You may fail at each step of the process along the way, but as long as you improve each time it's hard not to make it...

    1. Market research... fail.... learn how it's done.
    2. Keyword research...fail... learn
    3. Product viability...fail...learn
    4. Pricing....fail...learn
    5. Driving traffic/SEO...fail...learn

    ....you get the point.
