Why Do You Suck At Internet Marketing?

I know for a fact that at least 95% of the people who read this post are trying to make money online as an "internet marketer" but are failing miserably. Even if you are making some money, it's not nearly enough to quit your job or buy that dream house you've always wanted.

So, why do you suck at internet marketing?

Do you not have any internet marketing skills? Do you lack the resources to succeed at internet marketing? Have you just not found that perfect opportunity to make money online? Are you just plain stupid?

I will tell you right now that it's NONE of those!

The reason you suck at internet marketing and are not making any money is because you have been lied to. You have believed all the hype. You are listening to the wrong advice.

It's not your fault!

Although some of the blame does fall on you because you let yourself get suckered into thinking that all you had to do was start an MMO blog, or build a website, or sign up for some home business opportunity, or buy some product created by an internet marketing "guru" -- and you would be making money the next day, and filthy rich in a couple months.

Well, as you have obviously figured out... that doesn't happen!

Let me tell you right now that there is no big secret to internet marketing that you don't know about. Stop buying every internet marketing ebook, report, course, and tool that you find! Sure there are some tools, resources and information that are worth buying because they will help you with your internet marketing business but you really don't need every new product that comes out. Most of everything you need to become a successful internet marketer is free (or close to it).

The more stuff you buy that is supposed to be making you money, the less money you will make! All you are doing is spending your money and making some other internet marketer rich by doing this. And that is a pretty sucky way to go about internet marketing!

How do you succeed at internet marketing and make money online?

Simple... You need to find one or two good mentors and follow what they do. Find an internet marketer that really is making money online, knows what they are talking about, and are willing to freely share their strategies and knowledge. But most importantly you need to take action on the information you learn. All the internet marketing knowledge in the world won't do you any good if you don't put it to use.

I know that sounds too easy but that really is how you make money online! In the grand scheme of things internet marketing is not hard. It's actually quite simple. A little knowledge and a LOT of action will take you a long way.

Not sure where to find a good internet marketing mentor?

Here are a few that I recommend (other than myself, of course):

Grizzly Brears
Vic Franqui
Courtney Tuttle

All three of them are ranked in the top ten on Google for either Make Money Online or Internet Marketing, so you can be sure they know what they are talking about. And all of them are willing to share what they know. Take action on the information you learn from them and you will make money online. That's a promise!

Oh and in case you are wondering about me, I am ranked in the top ten of Google for Home Based Business and numerous other related keyword phrases. I will also happily share my knowledge with anyone willing to listen.

There now you have four mentors to follow and a little information about what not to do if you want to succeed at making money online. You should no longer suck at internet marketing!

Hi Trent,

Sadly you just hit the nail on the head. It's not that the knowledge isn't given and shared freely it's that the vast majority of would be marketers never get past the "taking it all in" stage. It's easier to keep buying new products than it is to sit down and actually do something. That ugly word "work" crops up and people start looking for another "get rich quick" book so that they can get rich tomorrow and avoid having to work for it. Or at least that is what it looks like to me. Between you and a dozen other great marketers I know there is no shortage of info available for free. Stuff that actually works. And yet none of them have the readership of John Chow who shovels out useless crap by the truckload. Go figure. At least the field isn't overcrowded for those that do know what they are doing.

Thanks for letting me rant! lol.

Hope all is well Trent - good job as usual.

I know why I suck at internet marketing. It's because I don't know what I'm doing. Try as I may I don't understand the techy side of it. It took me all day to try and figure out how to get links live,lol. I work hard, keep researching, studying and reading and hope that a light bulb will come on. You write good posts and they're helpful. Keep it up.
