The Number One Reason Why You Are Not Making Money Online

Mar 24, 2008
If you have run an internet business online for any length of time you are probably already familiar with it. Maybe you have taken steps to correct the problem. However if you are still quite new to internet marketing online, the chances are you are caught up in it or about to be.

It is a given that you want your internet based business to thrive and you want to learn from different sources that have already risen to the top of the success ladder. But one of the main obstacles you will face is right in your own email box.

Once you start down the internet marketing online road the chances are you will be flooded with information. Let us face it; the world we now live in bombards us twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. It is literally possible to receive more information in one week than some of the previous generations received in a whole lifetime.

This can of course be a blessing and a curse and when it comes to internet marketing it can also be a major deterrent to online success.

Which Way Do You Go?

You check your email box and come across one in particular that catches your eye. A complete system for making money online that gives you step by step assistance on how to do it. You do a little more investigating. It looks legitimate so you go for it. That is until you check your email a couple of days later and see two more offers that look better than the first one. Now you are a little bit confused so you try to continue with the first program while incorporating the other two. You think you have a handle on it until the next time you check your email. This time it has a super duper program that pulls you in a completely different direction than the other three. Result? Information overloads which in many cases lead to shutdown i.e. not taking any action what so ever.

You are not alone the constant bombardment of information that can pull you in a hundred directions at once has affected many would be marketers; some to the point that they give up altogether. Your best bet is to know beforehand which direction you want to take your business, decide on the method and then stick to it. If another offer is pushing you further in the direction you have already decided to take than see if you can incorporate it into your internet marketing plan. If not then throw it out or at least set it aside until your initial plan is hopefully making you money and running on autopilot.

In fact you may want to do yourself a favor and set up an email filter to cut down on some of those "latest is the greatest" new offers. Also stay away from getting on too many mailing lists. You can easily find out the latest buzz by becoming a member of a forum in your niche that contains a large membership base and lively discussions.

Having access to more information is a good thing. Too much information is not. It can paralyze you into not doing anything. That is why it is important to have a plan of action before you start. Decide on that first and then see if there is anything in your email box that corresponds to it. When you find the pieces you need, work your plan and say goodbye to everything else.
