The reason many people fail at online marketing...
« on: October 31, 2013, 05:14:27 AM »
One of the major reasons why folks fail to make any dough online is because they run around in circles hunting down the newest shiny object rather than focusing on just 1 or 2 things and then becoming very skilled at them.

There are loads of methods to make money on the net, such as running a blog, Search engine optimization, email marketing, article marketing etc and they all work. Although they all require work. Some beginners might go and create a couple articles, submit them to a couple of directories, make no sales and then go around declaring that online marketing does not work.

The trick is to settle on one topic of Internet marketing which excites you the most and then get great at it because the more you enjoy something, the much more likely you are to study more and get mastery over that area.

This is what has worked for myself. What do you guys think?

I think you are quite right. Focus, effort and in depth learning are required.

Depends on one's goals. Taking into account how fast IM changes these days, it may be not worthwhile dedicating much time to learning a limited scope of method only to find out they stopped working a month later.
I'd say, if you want quick gains and are willing to risk and start over as many times as is required, then you may as well chase a few new shiny objects and see if they pay off. Being an early adopter and a pioneer isn't always bad.
But if you're looking for long-term gains, it'll probably take you a while to organize your work in such a way that you proceed slowly yet surely, becoming skilled at the methods you use.

For success in online marketing a lot of endurance is required. First one should train himself about SEO and online marketing. One should must know how to make a product viral,then he can earn from online business.

I agree completely, you have to focus on one thing, get good at it. Info overload is a big problem in IM, and all the over hyped sales of the latest and greatest thing don't help matters.
