It is said that you can either learn from your mistakes or you can learn from your mentors. People who start out in hopes of having a successful home business often fail because they have not learned from a mentor. They go into this business thinking that they can do it all by themselves or thinking that they can have a hands off, fully automated business. Listed below are some of the common mistakes that people make that causes them to either not be successful or just plain quit each thing that they start. Learn from the mentors with the list below!
# 1 Not Marketing Your Business…most people get information overwhelm. The reason is they buy program after program and they don’t implement anything. You must learn and do.
# 2 Not building an email list from your marketing. You need to collect emails for your list from your marketing.
For every 1000 people to hit your website you want 30 to 40% optin to your capture page.
# 3 Not talking to people – They are trying to make it 100% automated. The people who work personally with their teams are the ones are able to duplicate. Reach out to people on Facebook. People are turned off with someone who is not connected. Chat with people and answer their questions. Sometimes it’s just a few questions…if they don’t get answers from you they will go somewhere else.
#4 Not having a DMO – “Daily Method of Operation. “ Schedule your day!
You need to create some kind of content, blog post, video, facebook note, article or something of value.
You get paid for the value you provide to the marketplace – Jim Rohn
First, Content – Write a Blog Post – Do it first thing in the morning.
Second, Active Marketing – Facebook Chatting (ask them what are you doing to market your business), Skype, follow up with email responses.
Third, Passive Marketing (Video marketing, FB PPC, Youtube, Instagram)
Follow Up (Email to your list – daily)
Fourth, Health – Is equal to energy. Walking, drinking water, sleeping.
(Book for eating – Eat Right for your Blood Type – Grains are not good for some blood types – Google it and find out)
# 5 Not Investing in themselves (personal growth) Read good books like personal development books. This is the difference between making some money online and making massive money online. Align yourself with mentors and people who will bring you to the next level. Pay for mentor programs…it pays off. It works! Every doctor, lawyer and successful internet marketer does this!
# 6 Lack of Focus. This is self explanatory. The person who is not focused is trying everything and buys every new bright shiny object.
# 7 Not Having a Blog for their Business – The purpose of a blog is…A blog is your home on the internet. You have to have a place to store your content just like you have to have a place to store your furniture and personal items. It’s a website for you to post stuff to. From there you can email to your list, post to your FB, and other social media. You can guest post, generate leads and sales…the home that you come to is the blog. Every business should have a blog.
#8 No Vision – People follow someone with a vision. People want to join someone who is going somewhere and can take them with.
# 9 Not Unified with a group of people all working toward the same vision. A vision becomes successful when people work together for a cause. Have you noticed how successful many charities are when the people are all working together toward the same goal? It works the same way in Internet marketing!
Here is a Challenge for you: Start your own unified group…working toward the same goal.
I hope these tips have helped you in some way and that you will like and share with others.
