A very relevant way to end this email course is understanding why most people fail online. It is not that they can’t seem to make money online, most people quit before they start to see results.
I remember when I first started, I wanted to see money coming in within the first week. Although it is very well possible, most times it will not happen.
Remember, quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit! I’m sure you don’t want to belong to the first category. You took this email course and that was for a reason.
Maybe you have to set goals to help you stay on track, in that case you can download free goal setting worksheets here.
Here are 5 reasons why people don’t succeed at making money online.
Reason #1: Giving Up Too Soon
Building a successful online business isn’t something that can be done overnight. It may not even happen your first month, or your second month, maybe not even your first year.
There are many things you have to learn. Just think of it this way; People go to college for 4 or more years and even then it can take up to 6 months to find a job.
Working on your website will give you the skills and experience you need to succeed. Many people start with an online business, expecting to see results, and money coming in, in the first month.
When it doesn’t happen, they get discouraged and give up. If you keep going on, you will see money coming in, and the more you do, the more money you can make.
The point here is that it can take months, probably a year, maybe even two years to build a profitable website. But it will happen if you continue to build out your website.
You should not give up at this point, the only ones who fail are the ones who decided to give up. Success is for those who do not quit but learn from their mistakes and keep going on.
If you don’t like your niche, or come up with another niche you feel more comfortable with, change it. Just keep going until you find something that interest you more, gives you more pleasure to work with.
Reason #2: Not Asking For Help
If you ever run into a problem, can’t figure out something, ask for help. With Wealthy Affiliate you have a whole community of like minded people who can help you out.
You can even expect to get help from the owners. With the live chat you can ask a question 24/7 and there will always be someone willing to help you out.
You can get personal help from me also, message me anytime you want. Don’t be embarrassed to ask something, I had to start from the beginning as a newbie also, learning everything.
The learning continues and sometimes I have to ask for help also. But I kept going and now I’m successful with affiliate marketing.
Reason #3: Too Many Online Scams
In the online world are many people who promise to help you making money online. They tell you they know the secret, and you can get it by paying a small amount of money.
When you do, they will gladly take your money and then they want you to pay more and more but you will never learn the secret, because it is all a scam.
I have seen many scams myself, and also lost some money, but now I know how to see if it is a legit product or a scam.
You can read more about scams and how to recognize them, on my website. Wealthy Affiliate is definitely not a scam, many people are successful with their training.
Reason #4: Too High Expectations
Some people have set their expectations too high, expecting to make at least $1000 in the first month. Even if they make money, it is not enough and they quit.
There is nothing wrong with setting high expectation, but as a beginner you have to think logical. There is a lot to learn before you start to earn some good money.
Internet marketing takes time and you have to put in that time, willing to work for it. Once you get better at it and see money coming in, it will be much more fun to do your work.
From there you will be on your way to a job that you like with a lot of freedom, making even more money.
Reason #5: They Think They Are Done When Their Website Is Online
Once you have the basics done, you have to put information like articles on your website on a regular basis. This is called content writing or article writing and is an important part of your work.
The more content you have on your website, the more exposure your site will get, the more visitors you can expect. And visitors is what you need to make sales, more visitors should lead to more sales.
You can do more than just writing content: making videos; sharing your content on social media; blogging; search engine optimization, just to name a few.
Even optimizing your pages (SEO=Search engine Optimization) can get your website higher in the search engine, with more visitors as a result.
By now you should have a better understanding of making money online; choosing a niche, buying and setting up a website, and using keywords to get traffic to your website.
The good part is that you are now a member of one of the most helpful online business communities in the world: Wealthy Affiliate.
