Did you know 97% of all people who start an
online business never make any money?
The real question to ask here is “So what are the 3% NOT doing?”. They include:
1. Just focusing on the things they “want”, instead of building a business. It’s all well and good to have your dreams, but have you actually created a business plan to show you how to get there?
2. Not treating it like a business. A hobby is something you do in your spare time. An online business requires work, determination and a specific attitude to become successful. Just like a bricks and mortar business.
3. Always chasing for the “best” business opportunity that will make them money overnight. On a daily basis, I see many people I coach switching from one thing to another. I gave this a name “Shiny Object Syndrome”. It’s the distractions that take you away from the income producing activities that actually make you money. Examples are reading emails and facebook.
4. Not focusing on 1 way to get traffic to the business they get involved in. Spreading yourself too thin is a huge problem. Without focus and actions you need to do every day, no wonder only 3% ever create a successful business.
5. Failing to create a personal brand that sets them apart from the competition. There is a sea of the internet out there, and millions of people are trying to get the attention of your potential customers. What sets you apart from the competition? YOUR PERSONAL BRAND. Without this, you are a fish out of water!
The truth is, most online business opportunities including Network marketing, Affiliate marketing and Internet Marketing will actually make you money online. You need to work at it and create a system that you follow religiously. By now you’re probably getting the sense about the type of person I am. I call things as they actually are, I don’t like hype, I take responsibility for my actions and I know what I need to do every day that gets me closer to my goals/dreams. This kind of mindset takes some time to create. What you need is a mentor, someone you can look up to and learn from.
