The word is out. People from all walks of life are throwing their name in the hat vying for a spot in the internet marketing game. Some people are focusing on social media some are selling affiliate products some are trying adsense. The one common denominator 99.9% will have is you will fail. The question is will you continue. The sad point is that very few people are able to continue. Here’s how the progression works:
- Most people will fail because they don’t have a plan to begin with. So they are out of the game really before they start.
- The second big wave will quit once things don’t work out exactly as they expect. Like Mike Tyson says everyone has a plan until you get hit in the mouth. Your site crashes or Google search makes a change and now your not getting traffic, etc.
- The last group will be successful as long as they continue to improve. You can’t get what you don’t have unless you do what you have not done. In order to improve you have to first accept a change in SOMETHING you are doing.
Here’s three ways to expedite your failure at online marketing:
>You start off in the “Make money online” genre.
Yeah we need to hear another how to get rich quick story from another internet marketer. What are you going to tell us about? Wordpress, awesome. Listen we need another website selling this stuff like we need another hole in our head. Stop it man, listen you have a unique talent or experience of accomplishment that no one else in the world has. This is your niche. Not get rich online books, unless in fact you got rich online quickly. Then you’d have a real compelling story that people would want to hear more about. Don’t be a clown, be yourself and fly in the clouds.
> You try MLM.
Please stop it. This is directed to all my family members and friends and everyone I know who spontaneously tries this at one point or another. Noni juice, Mont-vie, the vitamin stuff, whatever. Its crazy folks. I don’t understand why you can’t see the point of these businesses schemes is to sign up people like YOU to sell their stuff. The customer is not the public its YOU. Listen, if the product was so good it would be on the shelf at WAL-MART for half the price your selling it for 100% guaranteed. Not to mention half of the MLM companies go out of business after some time, its stupid, stop wasting money and time and believe in yourself for a change. Build your own brand.
> You under estimate your competition.
When money is involved “playing around” is not. Understand what you are trying to figure out there are plenty of people who know how to do this so well they have been earning a living off of it for years. An easy way to save yourself some time and grief is to find out who’s the best of the best, first. The #IBCT International Blogger Championship Tournament is all about helping people learn from the best. Get familiar with the stars so you can know how you need to shine.
Its also important to know that there are risks you should avoid and pitfalls that could hurt your reputation. Its true you can only make a first impression once. So you need a plan.

I built this plan in part by what I learned evaluating the top 64 blogs in the world in the #IBCT.
