Why Do People Fail At Internet Marketing?

There are many success stories in the Internet Marketing world but at the same time there are also failures. Internet Marketing is a REAL Business. It is as real as opening a company offering products and services.  A lot of people may start Internet Marketing as a “part-time job” to earn extra income to supplement the income from their full-time jobs. But many fail to realize that Internet Marketing is a real business.

This brings me to the number one reason why people fail at internet marketing. Mindset. If you are going to treat internet marketing as a part time job, then you will only receive part time income.  Fair enough? Even though you may be starting this part-time, always remember that this is a real business. Internet Marketing can improve and change your life forever. Why do you want to only treat this like a “hobby”.  Even if you may be operating in a niche that you are passionate in, but if you are looking for a substantial income from Internet Marketing, you need to switch your mindset to understand that this is a REAL business. This is not an overnight get-rich-quick scheme.

Next, since you are doing business on the internet, there are tons of information available and many proven profitable systems. We understand that trying to stay focus is very difficult as there may be  an “easier” system available. Hence, we hopped from products to products, programs to programs. Most of the time, these products and programs can truly help you to succeed in Internet Marketing; however, not focusing on the training and not following through can easily leads to failure.  Many may complain about information overload which happens to almost everyone when starting out but learn to filter off what is necessary and what is unnecessary.

Once you are able to focus on one proven system, the next step is taking actions. Taking wrong actions is as bad as not taking any action. A lot of the people have access to very good training material that they can apply to start their internet marketing journey. However, most of the time, many will not take any action to actually implement or follow through the training. Some will implement the training method in their own ways instead of what is taught.  When the result is not what they expected, they blamed the product.  The key is taking massive correct actions and following instructions.

Some have taken actions in creating and promoting their websites but did not see any result immediately and claimed that they had failed. Let’s go back to the first point. Are you treating this like a real business? Do you open a restaurant and tried once or twice to get customers and give up after one or two times? This is an issue with many of the newbies which is giving up too early and too easily.

So, don’t fall into these pitfalls. Be focus and start taking massive correct actions and treat this like a REAL Business!


  1. This is a truly awesome post and I totally agree with you.

    Any success starts with a right mindset. If you treat your business as a hobby, it will pay you like a hobby. (Do you usually earn a lot from your hobbies?) Treat it like a serious full time business, it will pay you full time income eventually.

    Quitting too early and claiming that it was a scam or failure is also something very common. Every business takes time to grows. Internet marketing is no different. Why do some people expect that much when they didn’t put in the necessary efforts?

    Anyway, there’s one point that I don’t agree with you. That is “Taking wrong actions is as bad as not taking actions”. Although wrong actions may cause you to lose money and time, those mistakes are valuable learning points. So it’s definitely not as bad as not taking action. Not taking actions is the worst. You are not moving forward after all.

    Thanks for this awesome post:)

  3. I totally agree with you. Only by treating website as a real business, magic can happen. Like any brick and mortar business, building online business requires even more patience, persistence and hard work to succeed. It is about competing globally but not locally. I foresee competition will be tougher with more work and strategies need to be put in place. To many, your advice might not sounds good, but this is indeed facts that all who wanted to venture online must acknowledge!
