What was the biggest hurdle you encountered when starting IM

61 replies
The hardest thing for me when I got started was information overload and shiny object syndrome. There were so many products promising me untold riches...tomorrow, that I tended to ditch a method when it got difficult for something easier with a better sales page. So I ended up with lots of half finished projects and never saw a return on any of them.
I was thinking about this today and thought it might make an interesting thread.

    Like you have said, my main problem is also information overload. I believe this happens to every internet marketer in the beginning, even the highly successful ones. But after a while, I know how to differentiate between good and not so good info and focus on one method or two and the results start to show. But like all things, the best idea is worthless if without implementation. Many people are too caught up with ideas...they shunned the work which is action.

    Info overload is a common problem I guess, but in my case the bigger problem was sticking to my methods not knowing whether or not I'd succeed. But, perseverance did pay off finally.

    Changing my mindset from the IM/MMO/Weight loss/etc niches were the most likely niches to make money online.

    My biggest hurdle was to spend money (I was always a saver, not a spender) on domains, hosting, ads, products, etc.

    I was nervous to spend $10 here, $60 there, etc. But, it's all paying off now.

    It was a huge mindset change for me. Keep living my crappy "no spend" David life and save save save, or take risks and go after the big wins. Win or lose.

    That was my biggest hurdle.

    Very interesting as I'm right there, at the start, right now. My main problem has been focussing on one method. I bought 3 programmes, all of which are well-rated but I've only recently got round to working through one of them at a time. My plan is to 'finish' that one - it's a video course - implement it as I go along and rinse and repeat where I find success. The other 2 methods will be experimented with in the same way, but only once I've finished and implemented the first. Otherwise I'll just be buying shiny new offers 'til the end of my days with naff all to show for it....

    I've been online for years and based upon my knowledge... EVERYONE struggles.

    You might be *shocked* to learn that many of the "Big name gurus" still struggle.

    But here's the thing...

    Business isn't a game. And if you want to make money?

    You have to treat it like a business.

    Know your numbers. And have a plan. Always be working on your plan. Otherwise, you're just wasting time. (If your plan works? Great. Improve it. If your plan DOES NOT WORK, abandon it).

    Just my two cents. Maybe the gurus could correct anything I've said?

      Biggest hurdle was where to start and who to listen to.

      At the time, getting a coach solved both of those problems immediately.

      Unfortunately, I wasted 6 months before that happened (DOH!)

        What was the method you took to get a coach? I have seen a lot of people recommend that route, but I have also seen quite a few posts where people have gotton taken advantage of.
        It does seem like the obvious answer..When you get a new job you have someone who has done the job train you, when you go skydiving you have someone who is experienced show you what you have to do to not die . Any advice for people looking to get a mentor?

          Look at the reputation of the person that you are thinking of hiring. Anyone can claim to be a coach. Ask for referrals from some of their students. And look here and on other forums to see what people are saying about them. If they are good you will hear about it and if they are bad, you will see even more posts about it.

      I do this alot! Taking hours and hours to do something that someone who is experienced can do in 10 mins. I think that most of the stuff you should try and do at least once just so you know what is involved and what you want from the person you are hiring, but you are totally right...Your time has value!

    Have to agree with you Jedhadlin to many ways to make money online that look simple to implement and too much jumping around looking at different products. Best to find one and stick with it then just find out how to work it all out. Over time you will find out the skills and knowledge that you need to learn. Your income should then increase and you will be able to see ahead of where you are going. So follow a good system/plan and take action and no jumping around to any new shiny object!

    Indecision. I was motivated enough to venture into IM, but getting things moving took quite some time. Dealing with that has taught me a lot in life. To move on, you have to take that bold step, o'wise you'll stick in the same position you are at, and that's what they call mediocrity!

      Shifting my mindset that I could make more than $80 in a single day (that was the max i would earn in my day job in a cafeteria).

      Swallowing and digesting the idea that i could create something today that could make me money over and over and over was a problem as well. It just didn't seem real to me until it started happening. Like getting an A in a class that feels impossibly hard, yet you somehow manage it.

      The initial work load, no matter how big, is often worth the effort online though. I learned that the long and arduous way by thinking wrongly that minimum effort creates the most impact IN ALL cases.

      Minimum effort creates the most effort once you have very strong systems in place to make it happen. Like preselling an email subscriber list to buy a product so that you can schedule a single email to make you $1000's in a singe day.

      Magic like that happens after well strategized work comes together. And though it can be rough, tedious, hard and nerve wrecking (it can feel like you've been to hell and back, honestly) for me it was entirely worth every bit of effort put forth.

      I wouldn't have it any other way =)

    My biggest hurdle was keeping focus, taking action and following through to the end. For me, I bought any courses. I would start off with much enthusiasm, but I did not continue to the end. Everytime I see a new course, I would check it out (a.k.a buy it) and then forgot about the current one that I am taking.

    Wow I am loving all the quotes in this section. Info overload, Shiny Objects, and fear of failure are all big struggles in the industry. One that I feel was a big one and will be for a lot of people is

    "Who Can You Trust?

    That is something that I truly struggled with for a long time. I hated the fact that I was not making money but I also got burned early on to where it was hard for me to trust the next marketer that came along promising me that their program would solve all my problems.

    So bottom line Trust was probably my biggest hurdle.

    So what anyone reading this should take away from it is that the only person you can truly trust to get you to the level where you want to be is.....

    Yourself

    Also always do your research on companies.

      For me the hardest thing was the investment! I have been interested in IM since I was a student. Then I couldnt invest my time and I had no money to invest. Not even money for a $7 WSO back then! How things have changed...
      {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9131622].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author IanGreenwood
    Probably...

    1. Not having a proper plan. Most people think that the latest report / eBook / course is a plan. It's not! If you're starting an online business you need a proper plan of action. (and I don't mean a traditional "business plan" that your bank would like to see for a loan!)

    2. Definitely lack of follow through with my ideas.

    3. Wasting time, energy, and skills following pointless "tactics" when I should've been concentrating on my strategy! (Back to the plan again - and sticking to it!)

    4. Expecting to do great things with a poor skill level and only a little knowledge. When I attended to my education - and by this I don't mean reading more pointless ebooks and reports - my productivity and profitability increased significantly.

    5. Thinking I could do it all with free tools and services. Investing in your business is a must.

    6. Embarrassed to say, expecting to copy a "guru" and get the same results - how naive can you get! You need your own voice and your own personality for your own business.

    I would say it's my mindset. Things like "waiting for my 1st dollar to come", "not enough traffic", "poor conversion", "don't know what to promote" etc are parts and parcels in this journey. There're so many solutions to the problems. The only thing that stops me was my mindset to move on. hence like what many have shared in this thread, having a mentor to guide you is very important=)

    I'm a little shame to admit, but to me it was self-motivation. I started it while being employed and I looked at it as to something I just wanted to try. Since it wasn't for a client, but for myself, I didn't feel the pressure to work hard on it every day. Whenever I felt tired or just bored, I was thinking I can do it tomorrow.
    When I got a new, crazy boss that made me want to leave my job, I suddenly got very motivated to push hard every day. And when money started to come in, I became unstoppable

    Too many choices. It was only once I settled on one idea that I started to make serious money. I not only wrote down what I was to focus on, but also kept a journal that I would contribute to every single day (I still use it years later).

    If you have a strong work ethic, and most internet marketers do, I would advise you to simply focus on one clear plan of action, which is hopefully based on the successes of others. You don't have to innovate, just do what works and stick to it. The chances of failing are pretty low if you stick to the basics and just work at it.

    Yes, in the beginning there was definitely a feeling of being overwhelmed. It took a while to narrow down the niche that I wanted to be in and which types of promotion that I wanted to learn first. Then it was a matter of learning how to keep focused long enough to make money with one before learning the next.

      This right here!!!

      All of you saying "shiny object syndrome" is your problem are dead wrong.

      The problem is your lack of self-discipline.

      The problem lies within. Quit blaming things without, and start taking some personal responsibility for your success.

      But then again I grew from it and became that much stronger

        My two biggest hurdles were 1) time management and 2) getting distracted by the latest and greatest noise in the IM world.

        One lesson had to learn was that if something sounds too good to be true, then it is. Once I decided this once and for all and decided to focus on creating my own experiments and experiences, then it all turned around. I had to turn off everything else and find authority figures to follow and learn from. Then I had to figure out how to be efficient with time and properly manage my investments. You have to the learn the ROI of your time and what you should be hiring others to do.

        You can find a lot of people offering their coaching services around here. It won't be cheap but most will offer a free first session to see if it is a good fit. You should also read their reviews and in your first free session, be clear on your expectations and goals and make sure you understand how they can help. Ask them which areas they've been most successful in, and if that is something you would like to mirror then it might be what you're looking for.

    I was told that i could sell a $397 product using PPC (overture back then), and i invested thousands on traffic straight to the sales letter page. No sales. Tried again with an email list... no sales. I couldn't sell the $397 product, so i thought it was impossible to sell anything online! Then i quit, then tried again, then quit, and etc.

    And now i listen to myself. Been quite profitable since *I* took over.

    There's been a few big hurdles for me, but it's hard to point out which was the toughest, as they were all hard to deal with in different ways. I'll just make a list of the things I found to be the hardest.

    1. My family thinking I was insane. What I saw as an opportunity to make our lives and our futures better, they all saw as an incredible pipe dream I was chasing. To them, I was spending my money like a gambler, and since it didn't pay off immediately, it sounded scammy to them. I finally stopped bringing it up until I started seeing the returns.

    2. Discovering my strengths and weaknesses. A lot of people will insist that half of the products out there on IM are pure garbage. I concur that some them are awful products, such as a costly report that purports to teach you something amazing and new only to discover that it's actually a compilation of free information on the Internet and you got suckered into buying it.

    However, I think the problem is that we get taken in by a sales page that offers a good product, but once we buy it, it turns out that the skill set needed to put it into action is something we aren't confident in. Discovering what I can do and what I suck at was a huge obstacle for me. Overcoming it made me more confident all around, however.

    My biggest hurdle was lack of funds. A few years ago, I was crying poor mouth. Then, I started offering writing services here and elsewhere. In the process, I learned how Internet marketing works and how to market my services effectively. Now, with my income, I'm able to set aside some amount to fund my Internet marketing ventures.

      Discipline to work on it everyday. If that's your hurdle put your action plan in writing to track. If it's still a hurdle, get a coach to help monitor your progress and keep you on point.

      You can work on MANY projects, just do them one after another and use your experience to hand off to an outsourcer.

    My biggest hurdle was when my Adwords Account was suspended. I've just started to earn over £10K a month profits and my account was suspended. In the next few months I was trying so many things to get back, but without any success. However finally I was able to have my name whitelisted and was allowed to use Adwords again, which continues to be my main traffic source till date.

    The hardest thing I have simply has been focus. I have found two things to assist in this.

    1. Write a short list of what I want to accomplish in next few hours. Keep list simple and short. If the list gets too long you will lose focus

    2. Dragon naturally speaking software. Yes really. I close my eyes, take a deep breath and talk about what I want to right. Know basic commands, don't get too involved with minutiae of software. Just talk and let it record your words. Then go back and edit.

    This has made big difference for me.

      I am just starting and all I can see are big shiny things and lots of emails with links arriving in my inbox.

      I'm not even sure where to start if I'm honest, I have been dumb enough to join the Secret Money System › Log In after an email from Juan (I know), I have an account with Peerfly, an account with ClickBank, a web domain, I forget the address - I am an IM's dream.

      Any and all advice would be welcome
