Whenever you start out on a quest to make money online, it seems like there is a ton of distractions. You get lead down the wrong path and brainwashed by these Internet gurus. These gurus, will fill your head full of empty promises. Things like you are going to get filthy rich overnight, and that you can have money coming in on autopilot.
The reality of having an online business is quite the opposite and you WON”T see any money at all right away.
You will need to work hard to build your business:
- This includes setting up your foundation(Having the right training)
- Knowing what your customers are searching for (Doing proper keyword research beforehand)
- Getting it ready for your customers (Writing content)
- Getting ready to do business (Getting ranked)
- Opening your doors for business(Getting traffic)
- Taking care of your customers (Engaging with your visitors)
- Making a profit (Turning traffic into sales)
I am going to share the top five mistakes people make when getting started online. I would love to hear what mistakes you have made when you first got started. (Leave them in the comments below)
Here are the top five mistakes made in online marketing
Number Five- Starting up multiple niches People think they can run multiple websites and keep them running. The only thing this is going to do is cause you to get burned out and you will eventually quit. I suggest that you start out with one niche and focus all your time and attention to it.
Once you are in a position where it’s making a consistent amount of sales daily, you could start up another project if you wanted too.
Number Four-Jumping from one program to the next They are never satisfied, and they are always looking for the next best thing. There are product launches all the time and like I mentioned above people get sucked into these low quality products all the time. These gurus know this and they make a killing off these people.
Once the hype dies down they are searching for another one that they think will live up to their specifications. Not only is this a waste of your hard earned money but you are wasting your time.
I would suggest that you find a legitimate training center and get down to business.
Number Three-Focusing on the money instead of helping people out Lots of people come into this business with only one thing on their mind. I know we are here to make money but you need to understand that online marketing is based on helping your visitors out by solving their initial search query.
There’s a reason why they landed on your website and it’s because they are searching for an answer to something. If you can solve their problem by helping them out with what they are looking for, trust me the money will follow.
You just need to be patient and be willing to put forth lots of effort.
Number Two-They always want to know how much money other people are making I see this question asked at least 5 or 6 times a day over at Wealthy Affiliate the online business training center that I am a member of.This is mostly due to, once again these internet gurus.
They spend more time showing you how much money they have in their PayPal account then they do on showing you the proper way to get an online business started. People get used to that kind of behavior and when they find a real opportunity they expect the same kind of treatment.
Not only is this very rude but it’s none of their business. It’s like going out on the street and asking someone how much money they make.
Number One-Believing that there’s a shortcut to making money online This has got to be the No1 mistake that I have seen people make when they are first starting out. With all the scams out there in this industry, I can see why. You are lead to believe that if you buy their product you will somehow become a millionaire overnight. You can live out your lifelong dreams of sitting on your very own island sipping margaritas.
This couldn’t be further from the truth! Having an online business can offer you this kind of lifestyle, but it’s NOT going to happen overnight. It’s going to take lots of hard work to get your business to this place.
