Ever wonder why so many internet marketers struggle in their businesses for the majority of the first 2-3 years they are online?
Well it’s no big surprise as most businesses do not see a profit in the first few years of operation.
However I think it’s a little bit different for someone running an online business who should be focusing on things like attracting and keeping people on their website in order to convert traffic to leads, and ultimately into sales.
It’s particularly hard for internet marketers because along with spending your leisure time on the internet you are also spending your business time on the internet.
Often times it’s hard to distinguish leisure time and time for business. Mixing and matching these situations can be fatal for your business.
If you’re treating your business like a hobby then it will pay you like a hobby. One of the misconceptions of an internet marketing is you will make money by simply purchasing some gizmo or gadget when that is far from the case.
For most, it usually starts off with long days and long nights to simply learn the craft. However with consistency, and tracking your goals and objectives, you can quickly begin to turn a profit.
#1 Tip for any internet business success…
Come up with a daily action plan that you will 100% commit to no matter what! This is the only way to gauge how you are performing online. With that gauge you can start see which activities are producing you results.
These results can be higher engagement with your content, leads generated, email clicks, and of course income produced.
One of the beauties of internet marketing are the tools and automation you can use once you know what you are doing, but until then you must show up and do 8 hour+ days to learn what produces results. If you take your business serious enough this will not be an issue.
It’s discipline and sacrifice to make your business work. Either that or get paid as if your business was a hobby.
