Sup Warriors,

I'm curious as to what most newbie marketers today find the most troublesome when getting started to make money online.

For instance is it lack of knowledge on setting up
1. Wordpress website
2. Starting an Email list
3. Promoting affiliate offers
4. Squeeze Pages
5. You name it

Stuff like that. Even if it's that you really don't know what to do next. lol
(I was there when I first started)

With that said share your story or problems and let it all out. Who knows what will turn up.

    I'm learning as I go along, which is fine except it's cost me $$....but it is what it is. Choose the right people to follow and be ready to make some mistakes.

    It was so long ago... I was struggling with time management, been working 24/7 as I been over exited with the success I was getting. Then I finally got in to my bed and been sleeping for 26 hours... Crazy, isn't it... 18 years past but I still can't stop sometimes. I so much enjoy my business, so it is so hard to stop. Not it is past 3 o'clock at night and I am still finishing my new article. Got new idea, lol, have to share it with the world. And in the morning kids will not ask when I went to bed, they will need breakfast. any way... Good Night every one!

  • For me, it's not getting too overwhelmed, frustrated or close to giving up. I am constantly worried people are trying to scam me, lie to me, etc. I also have money as an obstacle. I'm interested in IM because I need money but you need to invest some, to make some. I mean, you could invest no money and maybe make a tiny bit... But you understand what I'm getting at. So that's a barrier. The stress and mistrust and difficulty and money are all big contributors.

    Good luck to you!

    I think most newbies struggling stick with one thing and implement it.

    What's funny I was talking to a woman today that is very motivated to succeed online, but she has had too much information thrown at her. What you need as a newbie is very basic principles to apply and work at it for at least a few weeks to a month. Many people give up after a few days, but time and dedication will get you there.

    The biggest struggle for most people is getting traffic, then once they conquer that one. It is getting people to buy an item, finally it is making a profit as most sell the item real cheap to get sales and finally it is trimming expenses.

    Without a lot of traffic you make zero money.

    TRAFFIC ► SALES ► PROFIT

    The trouble that most people have is not having a direction to get to actually making money.
    They know you have to have
    1. Website
    2. Starting an Email list
    3. Promoting affiliate offers
    4. Squeeze Pages

    Anyone can learn how to do those things. But doing all these things in a way that will actually make money is the hard part.

    The biggest problem on a personal level was to stop chasing all the shiny new products and promises and to focus on how to deliver value and help. Also sorting through all the information and training and deciding what is the best route for you.

    Most important is to get enough traffic to your site/s and build that list and following.

    I'm a newbie just around 3 years in IM..and never hit $10,000/month yet..

    I'm a part time IMer so I got only 3-4 hours per day to run my online business...

    Currently I'm doing what I'm so passionate about which is SEO and linkbuilding...you can watch how I did it in my signature below...

    Feel free to give me an advice or an idea how can I make more money with 3-4 hours of work/day..

    Thanks

    Zul

    I always lost focus with to many different products to buy and try and figure out. So I ended up trying to offer to much and was always distracted. Those were the good old days

    Nowadays, above instances are easy to grasp for anyone to learn.. The next step that's hard will be the Application of the learned Knowledge so that it will be called "wisdom", The next big step is to make your own website, put all your specific services/products to sell that solves people problems.

    Buy any of the WSO that gives specific step by step business system, with a guarantee that will help you earn for 30 days after your implementation, other wise they will refund your money if you have not earned the stated amount.

    When buying and following such WSO, just focused on it and ACT., just as simple as that, but as other says, simple does not mean no work... simple here mean, follow the Tested and Guaranteed system that works already,, like when you Franchise a well known Food Chain Company

    I myself is doing what I'm talking above points. After I learn making website using common CMS Software like WordPress, Joomla, Weebly, etc.. I offer this service to my Local Market here in Dubai. My Freelance Dubai Web Design Services. with my Real Contact Information on the website itself, for my customers to inquire about what I'm offering.
