What Is Your Biggest Struggle Online?

26 replies
Obviously there are a couple biggies here when it
comes to building a business on the internet.

Generating Traffic
Generating Opt-Ins
Convertsion

But on the other side, what are the little things that
are holding you back from where you want to be in your business.

Thanks,

Jeff

    Personally I think conversions is the biggest challenge. Once you get your conversions down it's all about getting targeted traffic!!

    I have been researching and gaining knowledge in the internet marketing industry for over 4 years now. For me my biggest problems is procrastination. After that it would be having more time and getting more targeted traffic to my offer..

    No doubt, my biggest challenge in IM will be programming, java etc...

    I'm a nerd in those language.. almost like an alien language to me, I don't know whom I can trust to handle my programming issue.

    Consistency is the biggest struggle.

    It's easy to learn about the formulas and take action on them. But being consistent is the hardest thing to do.

    When you're already making some money, it makes you feel like you're already successful. You get trapped in a vacation mood.

  • Getting quantity and quality traffic is always a major struggle for most people starting out in this game. Traffic is probably the #1 factor for IM success.

      I would echo a couple of the points and throw in one of my own .Tinkering with different marketing techniques and ideas rather than sticking to just one.Oh and my other problem is the internet itself , checking the news or the sports watching one you tube video or another and then trying to tell yourself you have been working hard on your business for 5 hours straight , oh and the other favourite ....... checking the warrior forum

    I suck at programming and graphics. Thank God I can outsource those things to other people.

    And conversions will always be a continuous refining process. Once you are done with one offer, you're off to the next.

    I think two of my biggest struggles are procrastination and writing content. I am constantly switching back and forth between tabs. I'm trying to break the habit because I do feel more successful if I'm not switching my attention back and forth. I have a bit of a confidence issue with writing content so that is also something I need to work on. It's nice to be reassured that it isn't just me who has their strong and weak points in IM.

    A list of Performance indicators from which to benchmark my tweaking along with the formulas. Example: Click through rate, Conversion rate, ect. There seems to be no benchmarks from which to base things on that is available. I know it varies from site to site but there must be a mean average to base priorities upon. You know if it aint bust don't fix it approach. Then once base benchmarks are established further tweaking may then improve upon the base figures, . - I expect a free copy of this product! :-) Good luck.

      Getting the dimes out of my ears after my morning swim in the money bin out in the backyard.

      Kidding of course... It's more of a frustration than a struggle but not enough time in the day for all the ideas doing battle in my head often frustrates me. Someday I'll make a few internal hires to help me manage all those ideas and businesses properly.

      Being an "idea guy" and it being necessary to be well organized due to the nature of the business we're in is like throwing a cat and dog into the tub for a bath. Lately I've been much better at it though.
