Why Internet Marketers Fail

Why do good, intelligent people who have been successful in other walks of life often have trouble when they come online?

It’s an important question.

The most common pat answer given by gurus is they didn’t ‘take action.’

But that answer just doesn’t fit.

Taking action obviously isn’t enough.

There’s more.

When I first came online, I was broke. I had a dead end pizza delivery job. And I had creditors driving me crazy with neverending calls.

I had failed at door-to-door sales, network marketing, and direct mail.

In my mind, Internet was my only hope.

If this didn’t work, it was over.

I was desperate.

That caused me to study everything I could get my hands on about direct marketing, sales, product development, etc.

I was willing to do whatever it took to succeed.

If that meant long hours, fine. If that meant breaking out of my comfort zone, I had to go for it.

There wasn’t any comfort zone left for me at the time.

The worst place to be is in a comfortable rut where it’s not painful enough to move yet.

That’s where it ‘seems like a good idea’ to build an online business.

It’s easy to mentally agree having a home business will give you more freedom that working that 9-to-5 job.

Yes, being your own boss would be fun.

But how bad do you want it?

What are you willing to do, invest, or give up to make it happen?

Because you will be tested.

Perhaps your first project fails and you wonder why you decided to do this at all?

Or you do a product launch…and your web host picks that exact day to upgrade all their servers.

Or maybe the first time you work up the courage to run a paid ad, and it loses money.

We do people a disservice talking about how easy internet marketing is.

Although personally I feel my worst day online was still better than my best day delivering pizzas.

There has never been a day I wished to go back to delivering pizzas in an Indiana blizzard.

I was desperate for a change.

How many people around you talk about wanting more out of life?

Most of them, right?

But how many of them continue doing the same things day-after-day?

If they really wanted to make a change…if it was that important to them…they’d do whatever it takes to change.

The rut they’re in simply hasn’t gotten uncomfortable enough yet.

They’re not fed up enough with the day-to-day situation.

The place you’re in has to become more painful than the fear of the unknown.

Because that’s what it really comes down to.

Change is downright scary.

Almost every big breakthrough I’ve seen a client make in his or her business required them to step out of their comfort zone.

It may have been releasing a higher ticket product they were afraid nobody would buy.

Or running a new type of advertising they never tried before.

Or even getting on the phone and speaking to some customers directly.

If you want something you’ve never had…you have to do something you’ve never done.

But the most common change that leads clients to breakthroughs is changing how they do emails.

It’s safe and secure to send ‘content’ or even ‘pitches.’

But sharing your own personal stories and opinions puts you out there.

Someone may not like you.

In fact, you can rest assured someone won’t like you…and they may even tell you about it.

But once you get over this ‘fear,’ that’s when your online results change.

And now I’ve made it easy with Autoresponder Alchemy.
