It is a new week and another opportunity to optimise your process or pick yourself up and try again, if it did not go well in the past. In this post, we would be adding spice to our previous post on how to start an online business.
As you cross the hurdle of starting something new like an online business, there are certain processes one should be aware of so that you can have a near smooth ride to fulfilling your set goals.
It is brings us to the topic of discourse which is all about why an online business would fail…
I don’t think it’s any one thing that causes people to fail but it’s a combination of things. Here are some things people do wrong that hastens their failure…
They get “info overkill!” It is a bad habit that is very common. People will buy everything new that comes out and they will do NOTHING with it. They become “professional buyers” and become inactive. A lot of them will buy ebooks they never read. You don’t have to know everything, you just have to know how to start. Take action and do something.
They have the wrong attitude. If you THINK you can’t succeed, you won’t! I am a firm believer that your mind believes what you continually tell it. If you think you are a failure, you will be a failure. If you think you can’t write an ebook, you won’t write an ebook. GIGO – Garbage In Garbage Out!
One word, “traffic!” You have to spend some time learning how to get traffic to your site. The only reason most people can’t learn “traffic generation” is laziness! Yes, laziness! There are SO many resources out there that there is no excuse for lack of knowledge.
Desperation! Some people are just too desperate and want to make money too fast. Online success is not something that lends itself to desperate people. It takes time to become an online success. It takes at least SOME money to become an online success. If you are desperate, the internet is not the place to try to make quick money. Get a job and work on the internet part-time.
You CAN make money online. You CAN become a successful internet entrepreneur. The main thing is that it takes patience and that is not something a lot of us have.
