5 Reasons You Aren’t Making Money Online

Why you aren’t making money online

 
Every year more and more people are coming online to become the next internet millionaire. They have high expectations and think they will be making money in no time. Well, if you are one of those people, I am going to give you 5 reasons why you aren’t making money online so you can save yourself a lot of time and embarrassment.

1) No Ambition

You are trying to find a way to do nothing all day and still make money. Good luck with that! It’s not going to happen. If it was really that easy then everyone would do it and we would all be rich. Yes, there is such a thing as passive residual income, but it takes a lot of time and hard work before you can reap the rewards of that.

2) You Have a Lot to Learn

You might have graduated from Harvard at the top of your class but that doesn’t mean you know anything about making money online. Learning about all the various ways to make money online in addition to the many internet marketing strategies, and everything else involved with running an online business isn’t going to happen overnight. There’s a steep learning curve involved before you can become successful.

3) You Need a Mentor (or a better one)You either don’t have anyone successful to mentor you, or you are currently listening to the wrong person. There are several internet marketing gurus and A-list bloggers that beginners always seem to find somehow. The only problem is the majority of them don’t actually teach you anything useful about how to make money online. And if they do they expect you to pay astronomical amounts of money for a small amount of their time, or buy their new products that they come out with
constantly.

If you really want to learn how to make money online you must follow people that will give you useful information without trying to sell you a new product every week. Find someone who truly wants to help you and see you succeed. Yes, you might have to pay them for their time. They need to make a living too, but you shouldn’t have to pay insane amounts of money for very little in return. There are also plenty of internet marketers who give out all the information you need for free on their
blogs.

4) You Aren’t Listening

When you are actually given quality useful information by someone who truly knows internet marketing, you don’t listen to them for whatever reason. In order to be successful at making money online, you need to listen when other successful people give you useful advice. Don’t just shrug it off because it can be the difference between success and failure.

5) You Have No Patience

You’re trying to get rich quick and that is a losing battle. There are a few ways to make money online fast but most of them are unsustainable and only bring in small amounts at a time. Certainly not the amount of money you can make a living from. You need to realize right away that earning a living on the internet is an uphill marathon, not a downhill dash. There are very few rare exceptions to this rule so chances of you being the one are slim to none. If you don’t have a lot of patience you will get frustrated and quit.

Don’t take this article personally. The point of it is to explain some top reasons why many people are unable make money online even though they come into it with the best of intentions. Avoid getting sucked into these pitfalls and you will have a much better chance at becoming one of the success stories who are able to make their living online!

3 Secrets to Succeeding Online with Your Business

admin Posted in Doing Business Online No Comments »

Succeeding online is easy, right? Just throw up a sales page, drop in some "buy now" links and sit back and watch your bank account grow.

Well, if you’ve been in business any length of time, you already know it doesn’t work like that. (No matter what "promises" or "hype" you might have seen.) It’s never that easy. But there’s no question it IS possible. (My client list is proof of that.)

 
So how DO you succeed online? Well let me share 3 secrets to get you started.

1. Know what you’re highest payoff activities are. The successful entrepreneurs I’ve worked with know exactly what they should be focusing on each day. They know what they’re strengths are and what’s going to bring in the most money. That’s what I mean by highest pay-off activities. They know what’s going to bring them the biggest bang for the least amount of time.

So how do you figure out what your highest pay-off activities are? Start by making a list of your strengths and weaknesses.

Now look at your strengths. Out of those skills, what brings you the most money in the shortest amount of time possible? What you might want to do is make a list of activities and evaluate how much money you make versus time spent, then you’ll have a better idea what bring you the biggest bang for the least amount of time.

2. They DO their highest pay-off activities. Ah, yes. It’s not enough to actually know them, you need to actually DO them. And, better yet, you should organize your day around your highest-payoff activities. That way, you know you’re spending as much time as possible on your highest pay-off activities.

3. They delegate out or delete their weaknesses. Without a doubt, the successful entrepreneurs I know spend little to no time trying to "strengthen weaknesses." What they typically spend their time doing is strengthening their strengths and outsourcing (or just plain dumping) their weaknesses.

Why do they do that? Because they make more money when they spend most of their time doing their highest pay-off activities. And they can’t spend their time doing their highest pay-off activities if they’re busy strengthening their weakness or doing low pay-off activities. We all only have 24 hours a day, so you need to know how best to use that time so you can become the biggest success possible.

Now, you may have noticed these aren’t specific for the Internet, these are general success strategies. I did that on purpose — if you master success habits that work online, you’ll master success habits that will work in pretty much any other situation. Next time I’ll share specific tips you can use online to be successful.

Back to the “Basic” Basics for Bloggers

admin Posted in Doing Business Online 3 Comments »

remember the blogging basics

Blogging Basics

There are oodles of articles out on the net on what to do and what not to do when you have a blog. But most don’t deal with the basic of basics.  One of our sites –
TheMomBlogs.com – is a directory of more than 8000 mom bloggers. Every day we receive up to 15 new mom blogs that have been submitted by the blog owner for us to approve.  And, every day we run across the same mistakes that we see bloggers making over and over again.

Here are three basic tips for those of you who have a blog, and especially those who are new to blogging and doing business online.  They are simple tips, but many times forgotten.

 


1. Type your email and blog url correctly. Make sure that when you are submitting or providing your email address AND blog url (website address) to a website, directory or even friends and family, that you are typing it in correctly.  We see many instances of someone typing in ".com"  when it is actually ".org"  or ".info".  We also see many bloggers mistyping their blog address and email address.   By having a blog, you are hoping to get people to your blog, and will defeat the purpose by mistyping your blog address.  Instead of needing to type out your blog address all the time, we suggest that you type all your information in a short notepad/wordpad document that you can open up and simply copy and paste from.  And, if you are supplying your email address to anyone, or any website, people have no way of being able to reply back to you if you have typos in what you submitted. 


2. Don’t put too many buttons and widget graphics on your page.  One of the things we see in almost 50% of the blogs that are submitted to our blog directory is that they are overflowing with buttons & widgets.  We have seen some blogs with as many as 20 or more button graphics in their side bar.  While it is great to exchange links with other bloggers and join a variety of directories and communities, you should NOT put them all in your sidebars.  This will slow down the loading of your blog and will cause people to leave before they have been able to even view your blog.  We suggest that you have up to 12 key buttons/widget buttons in your sidebar.  Any other buttons, create a new page for them.  If you have several buttons for blog directories, you could create a page for all those links/buttons.  If you have several people you have exchanged buttons with, create a separate page for those buttons or better yet, exchange text links that you could include on that page or in your blog directory.  Don’t give people a reason to leave your blog before discovering what your blog is all about because you have loaded it down with too many graphics, or simply just cluttered your page making it hard for anyone to find what you have actually written about.

3. Don’t submit your blog to directories or promote it until it is ready.  Starting a blog is exciting and you will want to share it with everyone, BUT… you need to wait until you have it all set up with both the theme and look you want, AND including having written several blog posts.  Be patient, spend the time to get all your ducks in a row with your layout and widgets, but more importantly spend time to spend a few weeks or so blogging and getting the hang of what it is you want to be blogging about.  Take the time to let your blog take on a personality of its own. The world will still be there for you and your blog, and people will actually pay attention to your blog after it has gained some life and has some real content to it. 

Blogging is a great way to have a presence and voice online.  But if you want your voice to been seen out here, you need to remember the “basic” basics.
