Revealing Mistakes made by new Worldprofit Members that doom your online business success.

Every day we have the pleasure of welcoming new Members to Worldprofit’s earn at home training program.  People arrive with different levels of skills  and experience but all share the common goal of wanting to know how to earn money online.

In nearly 20 years of business, we have answered THOUSANDS of Support tickets from our Members.  We watch some people succeed while others do not.  Some get this business right away, others take longer. We feel our job in this training is to get you on the right path early and keep you there.  We want you to be Members for life, not for 30 days.  Our goal is to help you make money online and guide you to the tasks that will put you on the road to profit. 

These are the most common mistakes new members make that contribute to their lack of success.

You may want to print this information. It’s very easy to get distracted and lose focus, hopefully having this information at your finger tips will put you on the path to being one of our Top Sellers.

Common Mistakes made by New Members

1. Never starting the online training levels and never attending a LIVE Bootcamp Training Session.
We have 8 basic lessons to get you on track and 75+ more with advanced learning topics. The focus of each and every one of these lessons is to help YOU learn what to do to make money online.  To add to your learning opportunities, each week George Kosch provides LIVE training for nearly two hours. This live training allows you to ask questions, watch on screen as George shows the exact steps you need to generate leads, build traffic and make money.  We record this training so it can be watched when convenient for our Members, or re-watched for review purposes.    The Top Sellers in Worldprofit attend the training, if YOU want to be a top seller you must attend the training – then DO what it taught.

-To see the Summary of ALL the lessons in the Bootcamp Training, on left menu select HOME BUSINESS BOOTCAMP then select BOOTCAMP LEVEL SUMMARY.
-To know the date and time of the next LIVE Home Business Bootcamp Training, check the MESSAGE BOARD when you login, you will see this at the top of the page.

2. Fiddling with their site to make it "prettier and perfect". 
All Worldprofit Silver and Platinum VIP Members get a website included in the Membership. The site we provide is designed specifically to generate leads and is fine just as it is.  Yes, you do have the ability to change it, add code, affiliate programs, etc but don’t spend a huge amount of time on this.  You came into our program to make money. Please understand that it’s the TOOLS,  RESOURCES and ADVERTISING included in your Member area that is going to generate your traffic and your earnings.  For those of you who are taking the TRAINING mentioned in Mistake # 1 you should now  understand this.    When you first join Worldprofit, leave your site as it is for now. Make some money using the resources we offer and when you are a more experienced marketer THEN start modifying your site.

3. Promoting your website and NOT the Landing Pages.
If you have been following the training you would understand why you should NOT be promoting your website and SHOULD BE promoting the Landing Pages. You would know how to find the Landing Pages and you would know where to promote them.  If this is a surprise to you do this. Landing pages both generate leads AND build your email marketing list.
In your Member area, on the top menu, select TRAINING, then  watch the very first video posted there. It says: "BOOTCAMP MUST WATCH VIDEO FOR BEGINNERS."  Landing Pages have ONE purpose: to get you Associates and build your mailing list.  George explains this along with where to promote these Landing Pages so you get Associate sign ups and this leads to sales!

4. Not understanding how the Worldprofit System works.
OK, I know I sound like a broken record here, but this is so very important.  If you have been doing the Bootcamp Training Lessons you should understand how our system works. Here’s a summary in it’s most basic form.

As a Member, you use the tools and resources we provide to sign up free Associate Members into the Worldprofit Program.  When those Associates login they are greeted by our Monitors. The Monitors assist the Associates to watch a video overview of our program, then make them an offer to encourage them to upgrade from a free Associate Membership to a paid Silver Membership. If YOU referred that Associate and they upgrade YOU get the commission.    Are you starting to see how important YOUR promotion efforts are, and how very important the Monitors are to you?  DRIVE traffic – and let the system work for you.  Of course our system offers you much more than this including list building and other sources of income but this is the basic process that you need to understand when you are first getting started.

5. Not doing the Promotion.
So you have watched the Basic Training video right?  You have attended or watched a recording of George Kosch’s bootcamp training.  What does George say over and over and over again?  You MUST promote consistently to see results.   We provide you with the tools to promote, the places to promote and a way to track your promotion.  To see results you MUST promote consistently to trusted sites.  In your Member area under ADVERTISING/TRAFFIC section on the left menu you will find the Landing Pages, the Safelists, The Exchanges, and the Ad Tracker. We have lessons on each of these topics as well to assist with your understanding.   For people new to doing business online you are sometimes amazed at how much promotion you must do to get results. This is a reality of ANY business, you must constantly promote to reputable places to get traffic and see sales.  The good news is that you are not on your own. We provide you with a list of recommended places, advertising aids, and stats trackers to monitor your results. The rest is up to you, it’s your job to do the promotion, every day if possible.  Your sales success is 100% dependent on your promotional efforts.

6. Not asking for help when you need it.
I shake my head in disbelief  when a new Member says after a week in our program, "I want to quit, I am not getting any help." Worldprofit’s Support Team is here to help YOU, 7 days a week, 365 Days a Year.  We have a 24 hour Member access filled with videos, screen captures and step-by-step instructions. We have a LIVE weekly training session every week free to all Silver and Platinum VIP Members.  We have a 24 hour Monitor Network, real people ready ALL the time to help close your sales.  Sandi Hunter, George Kosch, Dr. Jeffrey Lant work alongside you every day to help you build your business.  Take responsibility for yourself. If you need help, submit a Support Form. We want to help you succeed and are happy to provide assistance.  Your Membership includes all kinds of support and training 365 days a year, so take advantage of this.

Review: Home Business Bootcamp LIVE training session May 17, 2013 with Marketing Expert George Kosch. Presented by the Home Business Experts at Worldprofit.com

Home Business Bootcamp Instructor, George Kosch welcomed participants to the online training program.

The best teachers are the ones who actually DO what they are teaching you.

A person who is DOING what he is showing and telling you to do. 

A person who is achieving success and showing you step by step how to do the same.

George Kosch tests and uses advertising sources, products, software strategies EVERY DAY to find out what works, what doesn’t work and help you understand what to do to achieve success.  

Would you learn how to juggle from someone who had not mastered the skill?

Would you learn how to skydive from someone who had never jumped out a plane?

What about learning to fly from anyone other than a certified pilot?

Of course not! If you want to learn a new skill and excel at that skill you need instruction from someone who has actually achieved that exceedingly level of competency and expertise themself.

When it comes to online marketing, George Kosch IS the expert. He’s been in the business for close to 20 years. He will save you time, money, headache and frustration by showing you what you need to do and NOT do. His military background gives him a unique, down to earn, no-fluff, brutally honest style of teaching.

Review: April 19, 2013 Home Business Bootcamp with Marketing Expert, George Kosch. Presented by Worldprofit Inc.

The April 19th, 2013 LIVE Home Business Bootcamp Training with marketing expert/instructor, George Kosch started at 10 CT. After a warm welcome to all Members, George dug right into the training materials for the session.

The bootcamp training started with an overview of the Worldprofit Earn at Home Program. Specifically discussing:

-What new Members first need to know
-What steps new Members need to take to get on track with the training and for making sales.
-How the Worldprofit  system works for you in the background with automated emailing, notifications, as well as the 24 Hour Monitor Network.
-What Members need to concentrate on to start generating income.

George Kosch then started an in-depth discussion about online marketing. Promotion:  Free versus paid advertising. Pros and cons. What to look for. The importance of consistent promotion using lead capture pages (landing pages) and advertising with trusted sources. George demonstrated on screen the landing pages, recommended advertising sources, how to access them, how to best use the resources included in the Worldprofit Member area.

George addressed the question we hear so often at Worldprofit: Does the Worldprofit system work for promoting my own business? George answered the question in detail expressing that the training, software, and resources offered to Worldprofit Members teaches how to market online – how to market any business, product, service or affiliate program. What the Worldprofit  system teaches is lead generation, traffic strategies, list building, promotion and sales techniques.  These are critical components to any online business.    We teach you a model that applies to Worldprofit so you have a starting point, a platform for understanding the fundamentals.  What you do with this and how you apply it to your own programs and opportunities is up to you.   Worldprofit Members consist of people who promote only Worldprofit products and services. Other Members promote their own program in combination with Worldprofit’s affiliate  programs.  While others, enjoy simply benefit from Worldprofit’s experience and training while  using  the exclusive Worldprofit Member benefits,  resources, products and services for personal growth and development.

The last portion of the training discussion was about "program jumpers" and how knowing about this this can be to your benefit.

Participants at today’s LIVE  home business bootcamp training were encouraged to ask questions and George Kosch answered as many questions as he could and provided demonstrations.

Review: George Kosch’s LIVE Home Business Bootcamp Training April 5, 2013.

Worldprofit’s Home Business Bootcamp Instructor George Kosch started welcomed participants to the April 5th training session.

The theme of today’s training was to address why some people are successful in building an online business and others aren’t.

George explained that after nearly 20 years in this industry, he hears people repeatedly asking the wrong question.

People ask  "How do I make money online?

George discussed why this is the WRONG question to ask.

The RIGHT question to ask is "How do I build a list?"

Specifically, the question can be expanded to, "How do I build a subscriber list? How do I get people at NO COST to join my Newsletter list?"
The more people you have on your subscriber list, the more potential buyers you have for whatever you are selling- advertising, affiliate programs, products, services or leverage for doing ad swaps, making offers and more.

The simple formula is this.   PROMOTION  +  SUBSCRIBERS =  SALES

To make sales online, to build a successful profitable online business you must have a growing mailing list.

Before the Internet this was known as mail order. On the web, it is known as a  email marketing list, or subscriber list, or optin list.
Today, you see TV programs, News Programs, Retailers, Book Sellers all trying to build their own list via FaceBook, Twitter, Blogging, Apps,  and Newsletters. These large companies know, and are doing what we are teaching you to do – build a list using online strategies.

Making money online is a result of building a list.

Now, it’s a simple thing to understand in concept, but in application it is not easy to do. If it was easy everyone would be making tons of money from online marketing. The people who ARE making money online by promoting products and services understand this concept of list building and actively build their list, then promote a variety of products and services to that list. The people who don’t understand this, and don’t do this, never ever fully gaps this connect and it’s importance for generating sales.

If you are one of the people who is trying to build your online business but not getting the results you want, do this. Study the successful online marketers, what are they doing that you aren’t? Are they promoting more than you? Where are they promoting? What are they promoting? Do they make offers? Follow up? Do they have a positive attitude? Find an example of what is working, then do it.

Developments and Demonstrations:

Traffic Multiplier System

George demonstrated the Traffic Multiplier System. This is a new list building tool available at no extra cost to all Silver and Platinum VIP Members.
The Traffic Multiplier works by taking any link for any website, and allows YOU to offer people credits for clicking on that link.   You can offer a BONUS to people for viewing your link – they get something in exchange for traffic.
We’ve recorded a video to help you understand how the Traffic Multiplier System benefits both you, and your responders. The system allows people to opt-in or opt-out  without obligation.

Worldprofit Social

Demonstration of soon to be released Worldprofit Social Network.

Questions were encouraged and answered throughout the training program.

Just one word can make you filthy rich in business. But you’re not using it and your dismal sales are the result.. What’s more, it’s your own fault.

Author’s program note. I got up and went to work at 3 a.m. today That’s not unusual for me. My company is online and live sales presentations and sales occur every minute of every day. However, what I saw absolutely horrified me and makes me wax wroth to this very minute.

Our representative was blowing a sale, absolutely tossing it away. How? By "going native", making the prospect’s case for NOT purchasing, instead of moving heaven and Earth to make that sale.

The prospect in question was from South Africa and was dishing out the usual litany of reasons why they couldn’t take action now; the Rand was weak (never mind that the Rand was always weak); the political situation was a basket-case; the whole darn shooting match was going to the devil, and that’s a fact.  Every time the prospect issued another in his lengthy list of "reasons" for his inability to act, the representative nodded his head in sage agreement; then floored me by accepting the customer’s logic… wishing him a good day as he tossed rose petals in his path and gave him milk and cookies, to enjoy throughout the live long day.

And what of the sale, the entire reason, the ONLY reason the representative was there, supposedly at the ready to improve the prospect’s life by doing EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to charm that product into the prospect’s (until now) unfulfilled and unsatisfied life? What had happened to that sale?  It was forgotten, lost within the "nicey- nice" of what passes for "business" at all too many businesses. In such circumstances the whole reason for that enterprise is forgotten… and the profit sheet stalls.

Now learn the secret so this never, ever happens to you. It’s the offer… and it’s the absolute key  to business success.

The music to soar by.

Let’s set the tone for the remainder of this article by giving you a song that’ll put you in the mood for va-va-va- voom! It’s Jackie Wilson’s 1967 "can’t keep a good person down" sparkler "Higher and Higher". No matter how low you feel when you start it, you’ll be dancing on the ceiling by the time it ends… Find it in any search engine now as we go "higher and higher" with offers that take you there.

Why offer extra?

Okay, we’re back to basics here, the real basics. You’ve got a product and like every product creator in history, you think it’s the best thing since that proverbial smart fellow sliced bread for the first time. Yeah, you’re so sure your product is the best you don’t bother to promote it; why should you, when the world needs it so and its merits are so abundantly clear, to you? Ok, so no one is buying… but that’s most assuredly a temporary phenomenon, right? Sadly, no. Nothing in the world sells itself, absolutely nothing. And until you learn this and craft offers that sell, you’ll kill your profits and make company growth not merely unlikely but down right impossible.

Creating the offer that hands you the universe.

Offers drive business because offers give people like you the necessary motivation, stimulation and desire to buy NOW, instead of deluding themselves into thinking they will come back and order later…. which is a notion certain to kill your enterprise. Tattoo this on your arm, "In marketing only one time exists: NOW, not yesterday and not tomorrow."

A good offer sells, a great offer sells more.

When do you want sales? You’re thinking, "When do I want sales? I want them now!" If this is your objective… then carefully create the offer that achieves it. Here are the steps that put you on the yellow brick road to your personal Emerald City.

1) Resolve to create the most motivating offer possible, the offer that makes the prospect buy NOW when he had absolutely no intention of buying today.

2) Put everything in that offer except the kitchen sink. No, hold that; add the kitchen sink, too.

3) Brainstorm several offers. Don’t just create one and bet the ranch. Create a half a dozen or more. See how they work.

4) Once a customer has purchased, always ask him why he decided to buy now; was there anything in particular that motivated him to act now?

5) Practice reading your offer aloud. Whenever possible offers should be read aloud to prospects. This means reading slowly, steadily, clearly. Always confirm that the customer understands the offer and make adjustments as necessary.

More tips about the offers that make you richer and richer.

6) Assign a dollar value to EVERY offer. Never leave the determination of value and worth to the prospect. That’s your job.

7) Every offer must be timed. How long is it good for? If you are presenting your offer online like we do at worldprofit.com you can be flexible depending on where the customer is located and her particular situation.

Thus if the customer has the funds available to purchase now, give them 10-15 minutes to purchase. I recommend having an additional bonus offer available for those willing and able to purchase so promptly and efficiently. These dream customers make you believe again in good people and humanity and if you can bestow a little something extra on them, do it. Such customers are pure gold! Having said this, never just give something for nothing. Successful offers are built on a simple, extraordinary formula:

To get this, do that. You can never go wrong  if you base all your offers on this proven formula.

It is a thrill telling you these sure-fire ways to use offers to get rich. Here are some more timely tips:

8) Always lead with your offer. Remember, when  your customer decides he wants the offer, he has bought the product. Thus, make your great offer for immediate action the very first thing he sees.

9) Improve your offer. Even the best offers age. That’s why you need to experiment with new offers, never forgetting to ask customers why they decided to buy today. Their answers always contain valuable clues to the kinds of offers you should be making.

10 Put a smile on your face, in your voice and in the offer itself. Remember, your offer is putting your excellent products in the hands of people who really need them, while at the same time increasing your bank account. What’s not to like?

And now, accompanied by Jackie Wilson, "Mr. Excitement" himself, let’s put it all together and turn the alchemy of offers into cash, more and more, higher and higher. And remember this above all, when you’ve fashioned the sizzling offer, embrace it, run with it, love it and be grateful for the right words in the right order that make you rich. For becoming richer and richer is and always will be a function of the offer. Stand behind it and deliver it accordingly.

An Invitation.

10 Marketing Mistakes Revealed!

By Sandi Hunter

I’ve been in the home business and online marketing industry for nearly 20 years. These are 10 of the most common marketing mistakes I hear or see most often from both Newbies but also from people who assure me they know what they are doing. Here’s the critical mistakes to avoid and what you should be doing instead to maximize your results.

Marketing Mistake #1

You send all your traffic to your primary website. Most people involved in online marketing or affiliate marketing,  are selling more than one product or service. By all means, list all your products and services on your site, but don’t rely on your website for lead generation.  Your website can be too busy and too big to funnel your buyers into the section or item they are looking for.  Fussy, large, poorly organized websites can cost you leads and sales.   

What you should do.

You should send all your traffic to landing pages NOT to your website. Ideally you should have one landing page for each product or service you offer.  This way you can target specific markets and cater your copy and offers to that population. Landing pages are clean lead-generating machines. Effective landing pages start with a compelling attention-getting headline, then drive home the benefits of what you offer, point by point. Landing pages that get results always have an OFFER to generate an action by the reader – in most cases this action is either to get a contact form completed, or an instant sale.   Every person who lands on your landing page (squeeze page) is a highly valued prospect.

 Marketing Mistake #2

You focus only on lead generation and not list building. Newcomers to online marketing, and even seasoned marketers often make the mistake of posting static information on a website or a landing page.  They fail to do the most important task of all. That task is to include an opt-in form on your landing page that encourages the prospect to sign up for your newsletter, or your email updates, or your special promotions email. 

What you should do.

Every landing page you create should include OPTIN boxes so respondents can check off interest in other services you offer including your newsletter, special promotions, or related products and services. Every successful marketer knows that the key to sales now, today, and the future is based on a solid mailing list.  The best way to generate your own email marketing list is to encourage people to agree  (opt-in) to receive your email.  This can be made easy for prospects by having check boxes on the lead form included on your landing page. They simply check off what they would like to receive additional information about.   Mail order companies have known the power of a good mailing list for years, now online marketers need to understand this too.   

 Marketing Mistake #3

You tell not sell.  You ramble on with details and jargon that bores your prospect to tears. You don’t offer the exciting benefits of what your product or service offers -  what it will do for them to make their life better, or solve or eliminate a problem. Prospects stop reading long before they get anywhere near becoming a lead or a buyer. 

What you should do.

Use sales-generating copy tells the prospect the BENEFITS of what you offer. Include a special offers that motivates a response!   Stop boring people by TELLING  the minutiae of what they are buying and start SELLING them on why they must get your incredible product TODAY.  Sell all the benefits of what you offer, make an offer to get it today, then limit that offer so they understand they will miss out if they don’t act now – right now!   Every statement in your copy should be moving towards the sale.  You get this, this and this too but you must act now! Punchy copy that is laden with value and excitement gets a response.  Your marketing copy must speak directly to the needs of the reader, they want to know what is in it for them. Your only need as the marketer is to get the point across that your offer is outstanding and must be responded to right now.

Marketing Mistake #4

You are trying to BUY success. Many inexperienced marketers will buy the services of an SEO company in an attempt to artificially force their website to the first page of Google and other search engine sites.   I hope you have a money tree because you are going to need one. You’ll be out of money before you know it with no sales to show for it.

What you should do.

Learn how to do Search Engine Optimization (SEO) yourself. If you don’t you will always find people with their hand out ready to take your money, and your return for this kind of service will be minimal. Here’s why. SEO is not that hard, you can easily learn how to do this yourself if you are willing to learn, give it time and are very patient.  There are TONS of free courses, free ebooks, low cost software and training programs that teach you how to increase your website ranking.  At least first give it a try yourself, save yourself a lot of money, learn for the sake of long term growth of your online business. See Marketing Mistake # 5 for more on this.

Marketing Mistake #5

You rely on automation or short cuts to fast-track your marketing. You’ve bought software or services that allow you to:  – Spin articles – Mass blast ads – Generate mass link submissions – Blast messages out to Twitter and other social media sites   – Mass product fake content pages

Guess what? The folks at Google and Bing are smart cookies.  Every day they tighten their algorithms a little bit more to decrease or eliminate the search returns generated by automated programs. The result: one day you are on the first page and the top 10 search returns, the next day your site is dropped for no reason and no recourse for the unfortunate site owner.  I don’t have to tell you that this can cost you a LOT of money.   The search engine sites don’t have to tell you why your listing disappeared, they change how they rank sites all the time. As soon as there is an obvious pattern, or sometimes just a hint of artificial attempts to jimmy your rankings from automated software, look out!

What you should do.

Forget about automation, it may work now, you may get away with it for the short term but in the long term, it won’t.  Google themselves will tell you the best way to get high ranking is with fresh, natural content posted frequently.    Yup. That takes time, sorry folks, no way around that but it is time well spent. Stop thinking you have to get rich over night, start thinking of your online business as a REAL business, not a hobby. A legitimate business takes time to build, consistent effort and some learning along the way.   Read, learn, download ebooks on the topic, take a Bootcamp training course such as the one offered at Worldprofit, and work on building your web footprint one day at a time.  Every had a tap dripping into your bathtub. It doesn’t take long till the tub fills then starts to overflow. Use the FREE and plentiful tools available on the web to learn and understand how to increase your ranking.  You can get started right now! Set time aside as you learn and do a little every day. Create social media profiles, create blogs, post an ad, build a WordPress site (the SEO is built in already), write an article, comment on an article, be a guest blogger, tweet, Facebook, LinkedIn.  

Marketing Mistake # 6

You don’t track your advertising results.  No clicks on your ads means no intelligence on which ads are working at which places.  You are marketing with a blindfold.

What you should do.

The beauty of online advertising is that when you post an ad you can check to see if you get hits. This is smart!  The only way of knowing if your ads are working, if your time was well spent, or your advertising dollars were well spent is to know if you get clicks on your ads.   Tracking your ads and the response allows you to tweak your ad copy, better your offer, identify both good and poor advertising sources.  Most online advertising sites provide you with a Member area where you can login to check your statistical data on your advertising response.

Marketing Mistake # 7

Buying ads on Google and Bing without knowing what you are doing. Newcomers to online marketing do this all the time. They put up a website then buy ads at Google. Google loves you for this but you won’t fall in love with the cost. 

What you should do.

Research key words in your industry so you know what people are using to find businesses, products or services that you offer. How do you do that? Easy. Google has a key words tools within their Webmaster Tools to help you with your ad campaigns. It’s free whether you advertise with them or not, and a great way to get started learning about key works so you can use this information in your marketing.

Marketing Mistake # 8

Not promoting consistently.  You are short on time, and short on money, so you post infrequently.  You don’t vary your offer, your products, your ad copy.

What you should do.

Successful marketers know that promotion is something you must do every day, and if not every day as often as you can.  People short on time make the grave error of buying large quantity mailings to massive amounts of people in one shot, instead of doing  small amounts of promotion to target markets on a continual consistent basis.  Do you ever notice that big companies NEVER stop marketing? They are always in your face.  What do they know that you don’t know? The consumer has a very short attention span and if you are not in their face they quickly forget about you.  My colleague Dr. Jeffrey Lant impressed on me the 7 time rule of marketing.  The idea of this is that people have to see an offer, or an ad as much as 7 times before they do anything.  Ever notice that when you watch the morning news while getting ready for work, that the same McDonald’s commercial plays over and over again! Why? They know you are watching the news getting ready for work and want you to stop in for a breakfast sandwich. Repetition in marketing is key and give the competition out there for various offers, it’s important that your message be seen.  Post your ads often. You are NEVER done promoting. As an online marketer your job is simple. Promote often, promote consistently.  This leads into our next critical mistake.  

Marketing Mistake # 9

Only advertising at a few places and not constantly looking for new advertising sources.

What you should do.

New marketers tend to find one or two places to advertise then only advertise there. The web is filled with great places to advertise. You must try to continually expand your reach, tap into new markets, target new customers.  Don’t put all your eggs in one basket and rely exclusively on single sources or you will be cutting off your profit potential.  Look into all kinds of different types of advertising including pay per click, login ads, banner ads, safelists, traffic exchanges, ad swaps, classified ads, joint ventures. Avoid vendors that sell extremely large lists or leads for a ridiculously low cost, chances are good they will be fake or computer generated.  

 Marketing Mistake # 10

Underestimating how much marketing focus is required to drive your business. 

What you should do.

Understand that marketing is and should be 90% of how you spend your time in building your online business.  This one thing alone dooms so many Newbies to failure, they don’t spend enough time on marketing in order to get results.  I hear people say ‘this product is so good it will sell itself". That has got to be one of the worst errors in thinking I have heard when it comes to making money.  You’ve got your products or services you want to sell, now focus on promotion. When, where, and how. Then stick to it.         I’ve had people tell me they are spending 12 hours a day promoting a product and not getting results. I tell each and everyone of them this. "If that’s actually true, you are doing something terribly wrong."  If this is you then go back and read over these common marketing mistakes. You are making one or more and this is sabotaging your own success. Sometimes you just need to step away, take a breather, and review what you are doing. You may think you are working hard but you aren’t focusing on what will get you results. Something is perhaps distracting you, something is eating up your time, something you are doing is not what you should be doing.  One person who told me they were spending dozens of hours a day with no result, was actually spending most of their time blogging and Facebooking. When they evaluated what they were actually doing they then saw that what felt like work was really just time wasted in front of a computer. The bottom line is this, reassess but never never give up.   

Summary: There is so much money to be made online it’s mind-boggling. It’s a type of money making that is not what most people are familiar, it’s a steep learning curve for many but it’s worth the time to learn.  There’s unlimited choices of products and services to sell.  You can build an online business for very little cost but treat it seriously. Be realistic about what you can earn  and put in the necessary time to learn and understand what you are doing.
