Why So Many People Fail Online
If you want to be successful in anything you do, it takes time.
It takes time to learn the fundamentals of tennis strokes, playing a violin or driving a car and it takes time to learn the fundamentals of earning money online.
This can take you from a few weeks to many months, depending on:
1. Your source of information:
– is it accurate,
– does it guide you with a step by step process
– does it offer simple tools to get you started
– are you disciplined enough to follow through
– are you distracted by hundreds of other offers promising you $3,000 in 30 days with 15 minutes of work per day
– how much time do you spend learning and using the knowledge
And of course many other factors. (Feel free to add them in the comments below!)
After you learn the basic principles how this works, you are now able to play. 😉
Do you know how well a tennis beginner plays after he has been practicing for 6 months?
He can keep the ball in play, but still years away from playing good tennis.
Do you know how well a beginner violin musician plays after 6 months?
You don’t want to hear it. 😉
Do you know how much money you’ll be making after 6 months working on your website?
You don’t want to know about it. 😉
In most cases between 0 and a few cents per day.
Here is how my earnings have grown in since I started my first website:
I earned my first dollars online with my first ebook: The Mental Manual For Tennis Winners which still sells today for $19.
That was 9 months after my first try attempt to build a website and earn some money.
You can see that I broke the $1000 per month in the 20th month.
By the way, when I started, my goal wasn’t to earn money, it was to share my knowledge. I later realized the potential of internet, mostly through Site Build It.
But the obvious thing is this: it takes a long time to learn, understand and apply the knowledge to your websites, but then things move much faster.
You don’t spend some much time learning, instead, you spend more time working.
You also refine your methods, learn from mistakes and slowly but surely become an expert in this field.
If I could somehow represent with numbers how a tennis player or a violin musician becomes better, the graph would be very similar.
But in our fast paced society where you can call anyone at any time, get anything from the nearest mall and just want more and more as fast as possible, people expect the online business to work the same.
And that’s why so many people fail.
In most cases, this is not true.
And that’s why YOU have a great chance to become financially free. With so many people failing, there isn’t much competition. 😉
With so many people looking for shortcuts, you will eventually come on top in the long term, if you do things the right way.
A website that earns me more than $6000 per month was built on one of the Niche Blueprints by Andy Williams.
100 of blueprints were sold and there are none of the competitors even close to the rankings I hold in Google for that niche.
100 people had the same information, same keywords and same instructions from a very good internet marketer.
My website dominates the niche because I understand the “tortoise process” as Ken Evoy calls it and invested a lot of time and effort in the website.
Most of my competitors were looking for a quick Adsense buck and slapped together a MFA site that no one wants to link to.
Hopefully this helps you get a better perspective on how to succeed online and how this process works.
I’d love to see how your earnings grew from the time you first went online until today and what are your thoughts on this topic.
