Not Making Money, could be one of these three things keeping you down...
I could easily say something tactical like:
-- they fail because they cannot get traffic
-- they fail because they cannot convert or write copy to save their lives
-- they cannot create an ebook and have zero skills or talents.
-- or whatever
But those are not the TRUE problems IMO. There are deeper reasons why people cannot drive traffic or convert, etc. Here are my big reasons and I TRULY believe that if one changes ONE or ALL of these, big things happen.... FAST!
Here they are:
1. The obvious one is activity/action/labor/work. Many in this market hold themselves back because they want a quick fix and the easy button. That's nothing new and it's well documented.
HOWEVER, I see it all day every day. I see people who even tell me that they cannot refrain from chasing the shiny objects. So, even though they know better, they do it anyway like a junkie.
But, to make money, one has to put in the work... the action... the labor... the effort... the production, to make money. One must put in the "cause" to get an "effect".
The true problem here is NEGLECT. Instead of working on a squeeze page and finishing it, most chase shiny objects or spend 90% of their time learning instead of doing. This will ultimately cause failure because nothing happens until one takes action and then gets a result.
We have to put good ideas and inspiration and ambition and our talents, skills, wisdom, experiences and smarts into.... labor/work/action/activity/production.... to get results... then to tweak, tweak those results and continue growing.
HOWEVER, most dont do any of that at all. They spend 90% of their time learning... or chasing the magic button... the shiny object... the quick, hit of hope! That's not action. That's not production. That's not labor. It will not work. You cannot buy or learn your way to income.
How much of your time do you spend learning or chasing some quick fix compared to the amount of time you spend..... SELLING!?? Just this one tweak alone can create substantial results very quickly. Try it.
The next thing that could be holding you down is:
2. Your Philosophies/Beliefs/Filters are wrong or off and that is keeping you from earning money online.
I've seen this a zillion times and it's easy for me to diagnose and probably quite easy for all of you to diagnose in others too, but for those who have "stinking thinking" they often do not realize they have it at all. They are blind to their own self-defeating problem (the way the filter the world).
For example, one can see "lack" everywhere and not even realize it. Many of us know this, that lack mentality can crush your dreams and that you should have abundant mindset, but most have lack.
I've heard people say things like:
-- Well, I have not made money online myself so how can I pick the "Internet Marketing" niche as my niche? I mean, I'm passionate about IM but I would be a liar to sell in this niche and I don't want to lie.
[the answer to this is to sell tools, be the messenger, interview those who have made money, etc etc... there's an answer to anything]
You see, that's having the wrong beliefs/philosophies/filters. Well, this can hold people back from making any money online. They are sabotaging their own success because of their own beliefs or lack mentalities, etc.
In a nutshell, if you are not succeeding it's either because you have the wrong mindset/beliefs/philosophies/filters.... or you are not putting in enough labor/activity/action/production (or both)
The next thing that might be holding you back is:
3. Attitude. Seems like common sense but I've seen hundreds of people up close and personal in this market who have terrible attitudes. I mean HORRIBLE attitudes. They want something for nothing... they are serial refunders and serial blamer's too. They takez zero responsibility and have entitlement attitudes. They spin stuff, blame stuff, twist words, and are just common trolls.
Bitter people, jaded, messed up, perplexed, unhappy, unambitious, lazy as heck, and they want something for nothing. I already said that didn't I? Well, having a bad attitude will close doors faster than anything there is.
Having a bad attitude drives success away. It repels success like Holy Water repels vampires. Success hates bad attitudes and gets as far away from those people as possible.
Most people point their fingers and say, "that's not me, that's them"... but the truth is on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being a perfect ambitious and self confident attitude, I'd rank most I've come across in this market around a 4.
I've worked hard on this and am still working on this. For example, I could easily get upset when I get ridiculed (which happens a lot)... and have had to change my attitude about that over the years. It cost me money. Lots.
An ego? Maybe, and it cost me money... LOTS. What about complacency? INDEED! What about "I"m too good to be doing thaaaattt.... someone else should be doing thhaaattt... not me, I'm the big bad stud marketer".
LOTS of money lost for that attitude my friend. Shall I go on?
Show me someone who is making six figures and I'll show you someone who has a great attitude about "something". AND, show me someone who has been failing for years and I'll show you someone who has problems with their attitudes.
Making money online is all about Traffic and Conversions, period. However, people screw that up because they are people (human beings with emotions, habits, beliefs, problems, attitudes, work ethics, etc)...
Money is just math. Marketing is just sales. However, people screw it up because of the main reasons above. Why is it people cannot get traffic? Maybe it's their attitude, or their lack of "action/labor" or they just believe traffic is too hard and too expensive!
Now, go into labor!
