When it comes to internet marketing mistakes, I can almost always guarantee that there are three really common mistakes that people are making. The emails that I get coming in, the conversations that I have with people and the product support questions I deal with ALL have a very similar theme to them. Are you making these internet marketing mistakes?
1. Very Little Or No Traffic
This one is one of the most popular mistakes that I see. Not the mistake of not having traffic, but the little traffic that does arrive. Most people wouldn’t be able to tell you where it came from or how it arrived on your site, article, lens or blog!
Without knowing this, how on earth are you going to repeat the process that got them there in the first place?
2. Giving Up Too Soon
This is something that has always been one of my greatest bugbears yet I have been just as guilty as anyone for this! I guess that makes me a total hypocrite :0
It’s the cycle again, if you have been a reader here for a while you would have heard me banging on about this for a LONG time. We start off by being seduced by a sales page, we buy into it and most of the time read it. Then we place it neatly on a virtual pile of ‘to do’. We then go off in search of another sales page! If you are really good then you might spend a few days or weeks putting some of the guide into practice and then if you don’t see the results you move on.
If you never master something and or even look at the ‘why’ it went wrong you are never going to learn and move forward. Remember the old saying – If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got!
3. No Clear Plan Of Action
Again, this is something that I too am guilty of when I first started out. If you have no idea where you want to be or how you are going to get it, how on earth are you going to work towards something? I always have my plans down on paper and to hand. I know what I am going to be doing this week and I work to get them all done. I also have my goals for the next month, year and five years!
Each week I plan out what I need to do in order to reach my monthly goal, then at the end of the month I work out what I need to do to stay on target for my yearly goal and so on and so on.
Knowing what I need to do and when is key for me or I would just roam around all day wondering what to start on next! If you have no idea what you want to achieve how will you know what you need to do to get there?
Should you be stopping now in order to succeed?
