    Realising that it wasn't my product that people wanted but what it did for their problem.

    i.e don't sell people a hammer, screws and a piece of wood - sell them a bookshelf.

    nothing to see here.

      You turned it into a bookshelf?

      I was told, people don't want a hammer, they want a hole.

      As Andy said, people are not interested in the product but what that product will do for them. That's what you should be selling. Sell the hole not the hammer. Sell the end result not the process.

        For the right niche, hammers do make very delightful holes.

      What I learned early on in my sales career is that people prefer to buy from those they like and trust. Establishing relationships with prospects is powerfully effective, particularly in the most competitive niches.

    I took action. I stopped watching other people make money and went out and figured out how to carve out my piece of the pie.

    Creating your own product. That would take care of
    mindset and a lot of other initial challenges.

    There are many marketers I know from the early
    days who concentrated on product creation and
    even though they were often criticized for their
    product quality, they are the net millionaires and
    "gurus" today.

    My business has achieved an exponential growth. The cause of it? I've learned how to improve my relationship with people (customers and employees).

    Most importantly, I have learned to love my customers that they will love me back.

    After I hired a mentor everything changed for me!! I joined Dean Holland's coaching program and I got light years away from where I was before! Before I was lost and almost gave up from internet marketing. Now, I am laser focused, self confident, highly motivated and I know where I am going! I highly recommend to all newbies and intermediate marketers to get a trainer who has reputation online. You will save your time and money and you will start your business in a right direction! It is completely different doing something alone and figuring out how to do things or be guided by somebody who is known and successful online. You won't regret it and it will change your business and life forever.

    Wish to all warriors all the best,

    Franko

    Mindset is very important. If you have a negative mind, it is going to be a lot harder to build your business online.

    Another thing that you need to do in order to build a successful internet business is to find a good mentor online and put your ego on the side.

    Trying to understand what customers want and trying to figure out the way to give it to them without considering me a spammer but also keeping a healthy personal relationship with them (individually greeting cards, using first name on emails etc)

    Same thing that changed all my businesses. The understanding that my idea is irrelevant if there isn't a market to buy it. There has to be a market first, I'm not Apple!

    Developing enough judgment to be able to distinguish between information and misinformation, and realizing that it was essential for me to follow the advice and guidance only of people who were genuinely making a good living from doing what I was trying to do, rather than "random people" just repeating "urban myths" as if they're "information".

    Wiping the slate clean and starting all over again with Google completely out of the picture. Selling high ticket products was a big eye opener for me also, but that only came about when I decided to ditch anything related to SEO.

      I couldn't get it through my thick skull that I should be building a list.

      Now, the first thing I do when I build a blog or website is place my optin code on that side bar with a free offer to download. No list. No money.

      You simply cannot depend on being on the front page of Google for your income. Creating positive relationships, offering valuable content, and building trust with your list is vital.

    Focusing on building a real business rather then just making a quick buck here and there with the latest trending gimmicks...

    Realizing that I could use the internet as a tool to make me money on a constant basis by creating online stores that compete with retail locations who have to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to open for business.
