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.

Why talking to most friends and family about network marketing doesn’t work

oh no not you again image

When you first get started in network marketing, you get excited about your company. You think you hit the lottery. You probably met some sponsor who promised you the moon. You were then told to make a list of customers and team builders. This list is comprised of family, friends and associates. The list is also known as your warm market. I have mentioned the following reasons why talking to most friends and family, about network marketing doesn’t work.

Your sponsor told you to ask them “the questions”, give them samples and get them to a meeting. All of which work depending on the kind of influence you have. The problem is that most people have no influence and/or affluence. Which partly explains why people quit so soon. A lack of influence is one of the reasons why talking to friends and family about network marketing doesn’t work. When you have influence, people will listen more to what you say. So if you lack influence, talking to friends and family about your network marketing business probably won’t work. You must build in influence by branding yourself and getting exposure.

Another reason why talking to most friends and family doesn’t work is because they “tried one of those things and it didn’t work”. Network marketing is a business that requires work. When you join an MLM, you have to work your business consistently. Nothing magically happens overnight. Your results will always depend on what you are doing.

A third reason is because they do not understand the concept of MLM. Network marketing is an organization of people who use and retail high quality products offered through their company. In addition, they get paid for building an organization of people who do the same. This is the basic concept of MLM. No overhead, low expenses and exponential potential to create wealth.

A fourth reason is due to a negative frame of reference. Sadly, some of the most negative people are the ones in your household. While you are seeking change, they want to remain the same. Most family and friends have the crabs in the barrel mentality. As you try to climb your way up out of the barrel, another crab tries to pull you down. They make such statement such as “you can’t do that” and “go get a real job”. These are very discouraging words to hear from someone you love. Nevertheless, we move forward regardless.

In conclusion, these are some of the reasons why talking to most friends and family about network marketing doesn’t work. Obviously, there are net workers who sponsor their loved ones into their business with no problem. I believe you should prospect your immediate people. Usually, siblings and companions will join when you start making money. I feel that the core of the problem is their unbelief. Relatives do not believe that success is possible with MLM. The ole saying goes: some will, some won’t, so what, someone else is waiting. Keep building.

Much Success
