Why Most people don’t make any money online.

are-you-still-struggling-to-make-money-online1

If you’re like most of us, you came across an advertisement that says learn how you can make x amount of dollars per month. You probably thought it was a scam but you went ahead and took a look at it. You read some testimonials of people who were getting great results but were not sure if you could get them. Maybe those folks are the lucky ones you thought. They probably have a “hook up” you pondered.

While it is normal to have some skepticism, it is abnormal to  be completely close minded especially without doing any objective research. I want to talk about why people don’t make any money online and hopefully shed some light on the matter. I will also talk about the solution to making money online.

Okay, so here’s why most people don’t make any money online:

  1. They think everything is a scam– yes there are a lot of scams online. However, it is YOUR responsibility to do your own due diligence to find out which ones are scams are which ones are not. There are many wonderful opportunities that will allow you to realize your dreams and goals. But you have to examine the company, track record and owners of the company. In doing this often, you will be able to discern better.
  2. Push button mindset– This mindset probably affects about 90% of the marketers online. Sure it would be nice to push a button and get all the sales we want and become millionaires. Unfortunately, that’s not how it works. It seems as if people brought their job mentality to free enterprise and expect to make it big overnight. If they didn’t make it big overnight at their jobs, what makes them think they’re gonna make it big overnight in their own business? Go figure. Furthermore, when they don’t make it big guess what they say? I knew it was a scam.
  3. Don’t want to invest any money in their business- It amazes me that people want to charge top dollar for their products and services but what all the training etc without any investment for free. Only broke people think like that. Real successful people know that they have to invest in themselves and their business. They know that there’s no such thing as everything for nothing in return. While there are good resources that you can get for free, the best resources will cost you. One of the most important assets you have is time. Free will cost you time, paid will save you time. So invest in your business, this is not the lottery.
  4. Don’t want to work with a mentor-I think there was a song by Frank Sinatra titled ” I did it my way”. That’s exactly what most marketers agree to. They want to do it their way instead of working with someone who did it and got results with it. Entrepreneurs work with people who are better entrepreneurs than they are. They are called mentors. We all need mentors who can help us to become better. This is because we don’t know everything and require guidance especially in business. Most of us were taught to become employees by employees not entrepreneurs. In order to go from an employee to an entrepreneur, you need to taught by entrepreneurs.

In conclusion, These are the reasons why most people don’t make any money online. Making money online requires a plan and action consistently. Just like you went to school to consistently to get the degree for the profession you’re hopefully in, the same applies for the entrepreneur. You have to learn before you can earn. However, most people want to earn before they learn and that’s insane.If you seriously want to make money online and are willing to invest in yourself and business click here.

It’s not really about your product or service. It’s about the dream.

When people initially start a business, they base the product or service as the determining factor. While it is normal to base your decision on the product or service, it’s really not about your product or service. The majority of network marketing  companies are very good with exceptional products and services. As long as there is a market, you will have a profitable product and service.

When I first got started, I thought it was all about the product. I focused solely on getting people on the product hoping that they would become business partners after seeing how great my product made them feel. Don’t get me wrong, that technique still works. However, I quickly realized that no matter how “great” my product was, not everyone had an interest in it. Not to get off subject, but some people are very skeptical. The last thing you want to do is prove to a skeptic that your business works. They will prove to you that it doesn’t work by doing nothing.

As a marketer, I believe it’s important to not focus so much on the product or service but   focus on the dream.  It’s the dream that people want. They want to travel more and be home with their families. In addition, they want to spend their time without having a boss over their back(no offense to bosses). Network marketing gives you back your life so to speak. Most people don’t like their jobs nor do they like getting up early to go to them. It explains why so many people are grouchy in the morning.

In conclusion, it’s not so much about your product or your service. It’s about the dream. What would life be like if you were living your dream? What would it look like? Think about that for a moment. Make it as vivid as possible. When you assist other people to live their dream, you will live yours.

Brand Yourself

Branding yourself is important if you are seeking to establish yourself as a leader. This is especially true online. Nowadays, it is not enough just to promote a product. You must promote yourself. There is a difference between marketing and branding. Marketing is about getting exposure and expanding it for a particular product or service. Branding involves establishing your credibility and authority in the marketplace. In essence, you are stating that you are the leader that people are looking for. It is important to understand that the people who make the most money in business, branded themselves first.

If you look in many of the Facebook groups, people are spamming their opportunity. Spamming clearly doesn’t work. If you and I are in the same company, promoting the same product, what separates you from me? Nothing! However, if I brand myself, that will make all the difference. This is what you want to do. If a company goes bankrupt, you can start another organization and continue to do well because you branded yourself. Mr. Donald Trump went bankrupt several times yet, he’s a billionaire. That’s because he first branded himself through knowledge. He knows how to make money and does it. Banks will still loan him money because he doesn’t need it. Did you catch that? Brand yourself. Everyone who is successful branded themselves. That’s why having a blog is important. You may be saying to yourself, “everyone has a blog!”. True, but not all bloggers are unique.

In closing, brand yourself. You inc is what counts. Have you ever heard of ITL? It stands for Invest, Learn, Teach. This is what successful brands do. Create some form of content that can be shared. As you consistently share value, which is what many people don’t do, you will attract more people to your brand.

Stop Begging Prospects To Look At Your MLM Opportunity

stop begging images

When we first get started in MLM, we want everyone we know to look at our business. We know we have a goldmine because our sponsor said so. So we hunt people down to the point that even our friends don’t want to be bothered anymore. This is because the light bill is due and the gas bill too. We are behind on the mortgage, and bill collectors are calling. Nevertheless, we beg and beg until someone says, “ok! I will look at your stinking business!”.

Where did this begging mentality come from? It came from desperation. MLM is the light at the end of the tunnel. It is a ticket to personal and financial freedom. In network marketing, you can do things that you could never do with a job. Yet, we continue to beg prospects to see our presentation. Network marketing requires you to handle yourself from a position of power. You don’t want everyone in your business. You only want people who are committed to the process of practicing a few disciplines consistently.

Stop begging prospects to look at your business. You have the goose that lays the golden eggs. When you beg potential business partners to look at your business program, you are coming from a needy position. When people sense that, do you know what they say? They say NO!! Instead of you disqualifying them, they disqualify you.

In conclusion, stop begging prospects to look at your MLM opportunity. If you convince them to join you, you will convince them not to quit. Begging makes you look like an amateur salesman, not a professional net worker.

Much Success,

Do’s And Don’ts Of Network Marketing

do's and don't images

There are do’s and don’ts of network marketing. Most people are doing network marketing the wrong way. Because of this, prospects are treating network marketers like suspects. We all want financial and time freedom. We want to leave a legacy for our families to emulate. However, there is a certain way to go about achieving this. Network marketing is a people business. There is a protocol to connecting with people. So let’s get into the do’s and don’ts of network marketing.

1. Do respect the business of network marketing.

This is a business that can give you the quality of life that most people wish they had. When you respect this business, you will position yourself to prosper unlike any job could ever offer.

2. Do get as many eyeballs on your business as you can.

Network marketing requires you to get as much exposure as possible. Use offline and online strategies to do this. This business is a numbers game. So you will have to go through the numbers in order to get results. Period.

3. Do consider getting a blog.

A blog gives your visitors a chance to get to know who you are and what you do. Do you need a blog to make money? No. The reason why I recommend having a blog is because a blog allows you to brand yourself on the internet. People all the world can have the opportunity to connect with you while you are sitting at home! In addition, blogging lets you offer independent tips and training.

4. Do get a lead magnet or capture page to collect leads on your blog.

The reason why I say this is because you will have an additional way to collect leads. More importantly, the leads are already familiar with you and your offer.

This concludes the Do’s of network marketing. Now, I will cover the don’ts of network marketing.

1.Don’t spam your opportunity.

One thing people hate is spam. There must be something magical that we believe happens when we spam others with our opportunity. Maybe we believe prospects will get started with us if we send them an unsolicited link. The truth of the matter is you must build a relationship with your prospects BEFORE you send them some information. Never spam someone who didn’t request your link. Spamming makes people think your business is a scam. Furthermore, it makes you look unprofessional.

2. Don’t ignore offering value on social media.

If you look at many of the groups on Face book, you will notice that many of the net workers are posting their business. Everyone and their mother has a business. You must uniquely offer something of value that will make people think. Posting pictures of your pet and food is nice, but they don’t give people value. When you offer value online, you will attract prospects to you.

3. Don’t argue with people.

If someone says I quit, let them. They didn’t quit on you, they quit on themselves and their families. I find it amazing that we get started for selfish reasons and quit for selfish reasons. Don’t convince people to stay on board. If you convince them today, you will convince them tomorrow.

4. Don’t post pictures of money, or make income statements.

If you notice in many of the Face book groups, affiliate marketers post pictures of themselves holding large sums of money. They are indicating that you can make money fast. You and I both know that making money online with any business is not that easy. If you have a quality offer, it will take some time. When you make income statements, you contribute to the stigma that network marketing is shady.

In conclusion, these are the Do’s and Don’ts of network marketing. There are others to be mentioned though everyone’s experience will differ. Network marketing is about learning, doing and sharing. As we focus on the do’s, we will eliminate the don’ts.

Much Success,
