      Did they misspell originally and then fix it? Night grader, that's funny.

      Well, to answer the question, I think to not give up and make sure to follow a plan that has been proven to have success are the right things to do to prevent failure. Most "failure" I am sure happens because people quit before they can succeed.

    A few reasons so many fail is because:

    - They listen to the wrong people
    - Too high expectations that cause them to quit when they don't make a gazillion in the first few months or so. Know that it usually takes longer than that.
    - Lack of knowledge, they don't know how they will make money online.

    but in all honesty, folks just aren't persistent. I mean really:
    All the info you need to succeed can be found right now for free.
    All the tools you need can be acquired for as little as 7 dollars a month.
    This is an arena where it pays to be stubborn and unrelenting.

    And that's the ingredient that most won't swallow.

    Same reason why ppl cant stick to diets, exercise routines, etc....

      People fail for a variety of reasons but the main one's are:

      1. They're too dumb to learn.

      2. They're incapable of learning.

      3. They're in over their head.

      4. They shouldn't have left the day job.

      Anyone can listen to the spiel of how easy it is. Not anyone can do it.

    they see all the shiny new things on the internet from advertisements and the like and think this is the magic bullet that will solve all their problems. they don't realize while you might be able to get a hundred dollars in a week if you start that most likely you won't and you'll have to wait a bit to see some growth provided you're doing it right.

    Failure is high because most folks treat their business like a hobby instead of doing the work. And it's not just online... Most people that open up bars and nightclubs fail (I used to tend bar) because they think it would be fun to own a bar so they can get drunk and show off to their friends.

    Treat it like a business and take action to create your own results because no one will do it for you.

    Please Post Comments! I would really like to know everyone's opinion!!
    95% of people fail online because...
    • They keep buying incomplete courses that leave out crucial details...
    • They keep joining email lists that keep offering these incomplete courses...
    • They keep searching for the best/easiest ways to make money but never apply anything...
    In the end, they all just end up chasing their own tails. Stuck in a viscous never ending cycle of "ALWAYS LEARNING & NEVER EARNING"

    If YOU wanna beat the odds...
    Find a method that has been proven to work, and stick to it! When that method starts working for you, stick to it like stink on a monkey. Keep your head down and utilize just that 1 method. Unsubscribe from all the lists your on & STOP LOOKING FOR AN EASIER WAY!

    Well that is a very good question.

    1: There are not many people who have the desire to be the leaders or to be the creative one.

    2: We can divid people into 3 groups. That being the charged life, the caged life and the comfortable life.

    So when we are trying to make money online we have a hard time finding the solution that fits in with our goal. Then again you have to know how much you want and need as making money is just a process.

    Not many take action and would not know if a guy could help or not even if he could!

    Finding the solution for one and get some experience takes time. In the end it is all about having a website and drive traffic to it. Many people do not realize that and do not focus on just 1 website then drive traffic. It does not matter if its MLM or IM as when it is setup the proper way that is the very basics of most internet businesses.

    1 website which captures emails, make money and most importantly ad value and about 25 different ways to master traffic! That is all!

    Then we have the mindset which is where everything begins. Our thoughts controls us and doubts, worries and fears keep us from growing and going towards the goal. It always come back to that when someone quit.

    Lastly where do that number come from? How true is it?

    WORK ETHIC - Every day I come home from my 8-5 day job only to make a small meal, and work on MY work for another 4-5 hours. Its really paying off, but most people (my generation especially) are all about instant gratification. Even on this forum you will find ads for programs that will "Make You 3,000/month in 10 days." Its hilarious that people actually spend money on these things, believing them to be true.

    It boils down to simple numbers:

    95% of people are looking for shortcuts
    4% of people are providing the the first 95% with the "shortcuts"
    1% of people are working their asses off and thriving

    Doesn't get much simpler than that.

    Failure rate percentage is a made up statistic. Nobody really knows how many people fail online, and the definition of what failure is varies. However, in my opinion, you will not be able to succeed online long term if you are not growing your own businesses. Most people fail online because they chase fast money, and the reality is that growing a profitable business usually takes time. If you are selling your own products and services, you will have the opportunity to grow and sustain. This will give you a higher chance of becoming a successful internet marketer.

    To beat the 95% failure rate, attempt at least 20 times to succeed. You already have a 5% success rate built in, so keep trying and your success will happen. Change up or make what ever adjustments are needed as you learn from the failures, and things will turn around sooner than later.

    People fail because they aren't willing to pay for quality advice. If you want to succeed, you have to invest in yourself. Everyone wants something for nothing and those people come-up short. You have to be willing to educate yourself and learn what it takes to succeed. There is no overnight success, but there are plenty of overnight failures.

      You just proved a perfect point. Too much of the gurus selling garbage products with nothing but fluff and hype that NEVER get to the point on how to properly make profit, conversions etc.

      And as far as teachers and coaches? All the ones I've dealt with never lived up to their promises. I have yet to meet one I can trust.

    Many people that have those big dreams about making money on the internet and becoming rich one day tend to give up on their dreams before they even get started online...

    They find a system that has a fee, they buy the system, get confused, get mad, give up and go back to working their regular day job...

    That is all there is to it...

    I have been trying to make money online for the past 12 months now and haven't had success until the last 2 months. I tried different systems, poured out all my money into these get rich quick schemes, and never got anywhere. Then I came accross Instant Payday Network and everything came together.

    I started making money from home instantly and have had success with the system ever since the first day I started and the best part was that it was free, but that is besides the point...

    The point is that I never gave up and now I am living that dream and making money everyday from home!

    So just stick with it and never give up!

    1 of 2 reasons...

    1. They are driven by either greed or impatience. They want a lot of money and they want it fast, all while doing little to no work.

    2. They are willing to work and have patience, but do not know how to go about doing it.

    People are sucked in by the easy push button shiny new method to achieve millions overnight, then when it doesn't work, they start to think that internet marketing doesn't work, and give up.

    Obviously the problem was the push button shiny new method - and the question that should be being asked is, why didn't it work, and can I make it work, or is this just rubbish?

    By the way if it looks shiny of requires one push of a button, it highly unlikely it will result in ultimate success. The quicker people realise that the business involve hard work, and there aren't that many shortcuts, the easier it will become for them. But a lot of people don't want to work, so are disappointed with the whole business.

    I didn't read all the other guys posts but I'm betting there were some good replies.
    You have probably just read at least one hundred reasons why there is a 95% failure rate and I could list a hundred more, I'm sure.

    That is the reason, because there are so many variables.

    My solution get serious and get a coach with a proven track record to lead you through the minefield. Once you've got a coach make sure you keep your end of the bargain and put your back into whatever your are doing - this will reduce your chances of being one of the 95% but is still not fool proof so it won't guarantee it but will reduce the odds significantly.

    Three main reasons, I think.

    (i) People who are "new" lack (more or less by definition) the experience and judgment to distinguish between information and misinformation; given that the failure-rate for all forms of attempted self-employment has always been high, most of the opinions expressed about internet marketing are (more or less by definition) propagated by people on their way to failing, themselves - thus, the majority of consensus is ill-informed and misguided, and the failure it generates readily becomes self-perpetuating;

    (ii) Most people get a significant proportion of their guidance from others who have either a financial (albeit often concealed) or an emotional incentive for others to believe what they're saying (and/or to believe it themselves), regardless of the fact that much of it may be utter nonsense;

    (iii) Dishonesty and inaccuracy travel far more quickly online than anywhere else: the voices of prejudice, ignorance, vested interests and self-justification are always louder and more prominent than the voice of reason - as Mark Twain said: "A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its Gucci sandals."

    People believe that working online is going to make them millionaires using little time or resources, they believe all the lies that they're told and often they don't want to do the hard work!

    We all know it's possible to become a millionaire in this industry but the people that have achieved this have worked hard for it - this is a real job, not some quick fix!

    I would say reasons people fail is:

    * Time and just go back to normal habits
    * Give up to quickly as dont make millions straight away
    * The wrong mentors so listen to the wrong people
    * Knowledge is power and when you dont have it can be to hard and give up

    No Joke but can seriously come out of that 95% by actually reading.

    For example how often do you buy ebooks and then not even read them, let alone implement what is in them!!!

    Secondly I set up some safe swaps this morning and some of them accepted in under 3 minutes so they hadn't even checked to see if my product was good enough for their list.

        Hi,

        in your opening line you (the OP) mention the alarming failure rate of 95%. I know that figure is commonly used, but I sure don't know who calculated this or where the figures came from. However, I can imagine that, regardless of the actual number, as in most things the vast majority fail.

        The point I'm making is that as a failure rate, it's probably just average - give or take a bit.

        Perhaps if we were to take a look at the number of people who set out trying to play guitar or piano, or become really good at some other game or hobby, - the number of people who make the grade would be similar.


        I think that most people don't realize how much work is involved when they start out on something new. Whatever the fascination is, it often doesn't last long enough for people to see any substantial results.


        This is what separates the winners from the pack. It's why people pay good money to watch Elton John or The Rolling Stones perform, and not me. He had the stamina to get good at it, and the rest of us didn't



        There are probably all sorts of reasons that we attribute to our failure to progress in our momentary fascination. But if you're not devoted enough to pursue it endlessly, you'll just never get there well enough to make it pay big for you. Perhaps you'll find something else that you are able to put the necessary effort into, - and ultimately do very well at.

        Just my 2c. I hope it makes sense

    But why is there such an alarming failure rate?


    The number one reason that newbies fail is that fail to take a sufficient amount of appropriate actions.

    They give up WAY too early. And they don't really try. Oh, they say they do.

    FACT: There are thousands of people making adequate amounts of money online in order to pay for all of their basic living expenses (plus some).

    And since this is a fact, the only way to join the 95% failure rate is to STOP TAKING ACTION.

    If you take action, you will succeed. It may take a week, a month, or even 5 years. But it will happen.

    If you don't take action, you will fail. You won't ever make any income. And you will join the miserable 95% who complain that making money online isn't possible.

    Take action and you will be a 5 percenter. No doubt about it.

    The failure rate is due to people thinking they are going to find some magic solution in a product, an easy button to "get rich" but in reality that just doesn't work.

    To succeed online you have to create a real business, and that's hard work. Treat your online business like a real business and you will have a MUCH higher chance of success. Ultimately it comes down to what you are willing to do.

    I believe that the real reasons why most people fail are:

    • Ignorance - Internet marketing is complicated. You must learn many details before you will be able to understand how the internet works and how to make money online.

    • Laziness - You have to work really hard if you want to see positive results.

    • Opportunism - Many people take advantage of any opportunity to make money, without caring if they are helping others or simply misleading them because they want to make money no matter what.

    • Competition - There is a fierce competition online in all fields. You must be able to drive a lot of traffic to your pages if you want to make money, but getting traffic is expensive. It costs a lot of money and/or time.
