95% of people fail online – FACT
No hype, no bull, just fact. 95% of people reading this Blog post will fail online. Scary right? We all dream, or in fact get “fooled” by the dream of working online and making easy money with push button software. Right? I know I certainly did any ways.
We are sold the dream of working in our PJs or making money while we sip cocktails by the pool or the edge of the beach. Of course in a few short months we will also move out of our 1 bedroom apartment, leave our beat up car and move into a 20,000 square foot mansion, with parking for 10 sports cars……
Lol it’s the unfortunate dream that is sold to us. I’m here to set the record straight….
What’s the reality?
The reality is that for some, a very small, select, hard working few, this is the reality. They can live a life like this. However the real reality, is that for 95% of people they will probably spend more money online than they will ever make. Yup, we hear about making your first dollar online. So people will make that first dollar and then make nothing more.
Why does this happen?
Good question but I think I have some of the answer….
Firstly people get online and have no plan. They have heard there is money to be made online but don’t know how or what they need to do. So they do a google search for “make money online” and see a fancy presentation video, with a good looking guy or gal, promising that this is the “opportunity” they have been seeking. That they too can change their life around etc etc.
Of course we have all bought into this, jumped in without looking into it and then failed.
Then there’s the no business idea. Similar to the no plan people are the no business people. They decide to set up a business online but have no idea what their business is. They decide to buy 1000 PLR ebooks and sell them. But they have no business plan. They are what I also like to refer to as the car boot sales people. They simply sell stuff. They don’t actually have a consistent product line.
Of course don’t forget the shiny object crowd. Shhhh I have been there myself. The SO people are those who start something, then see a new shiny object and think this is what I need, this will change my life, this is the magic button. And off they go, distracted, on a different path and ready to be disappointed.
I’ve been there
I have been at every point in the above and more. I have spent thousands on ideas, products, services, businesses, only to be disappointed. Until I finally realised one thing. To make money on the internet you need to have a business. Without a proper business you are nothing.
You need to plan out
- what you are selling
- who you are selling to
- how you will market to these people
- how they will find you
- how you can continue to make money
Too many people jump right in and don’t know what their product is, who their market is or anything in between. This just does not work.
