Why do over 95% of Internet Marketers Fail?

How many hours do we have in a day, I know, it’s a crazy question but I’m going to tell you the answer anyway, 24. Most of us have our time divided amongst our everyday responsibilities between work and family. When people join home based businesses most of them only see the caption saying, “I make $30,000 a month.” This is definitely possible but most people think they can sign up for an online business and the money will start rolling in without any effort. If you take two to three hours of your 24 hour day to stick with your commitment towards your online business, you would see a dramatic change in the amount of leads you have. When you generate more leads you ultimately generate more money for your bank account.

When you decide to commit to an online business you should treat it that way. An example that I’ve heard through my research in internet marketing is if you were to buy a franchise like McDonald’s would you quit after a week of not generating any money? Just like an actual franchise, you have to invest time and effort into your online business. Like I said earlier most people read the title of a capture page claiming that you can make $30,000 a month and expect that to happen like magic. When you see those opportunities you have two choices you can either run, not walk, in the other direction or realize that making that much money takes a lot of work and you have to be willing to take your business seriously.

It’s important to put in the necessary amount of work to be successful, but that’s not all you need to grow your business. It’s vital to have the right attitude when it comes to your business, you want to keep a positive attitude because if you don’t, you’ll end up quitting. This is the number one reason why people quit so early, they don’t see the results they’re promised, they get down on themselves and ultimately give up. When you get in situation where things aren’t moving take a deep breath, do some research on your marketing program, rethink your game plan and take action.

Having your 9-5 doesn’t mean that you can’t put two to three hours into your online business. If you can’t find the time to put three hours a day into your online business, that could be the difference between a growing or stale bank account. The more action you take, the more emails you write, videos you post, blogs you write and articles you write the more leads you have and your business will grow accordingly. This sounds easy and I know it can be frustrating but if you don’t put in the work I can guarantee you that your business will not grow.

Well there you have it, again I know it’s easier said than done because we all have things that we have to do. But if you want your business to grow you have to manage the 24 hours you start your day with. When you’re able to utilize your time by taking care of your other obligations and putting in at least two hours into your online business you’re going to see an increase in the areas that matter, leads and your bank account. If you think about it three hours isn’t much to ask for when it can potentially create freedom for you and your family, you just have to utilize your time the right way.
