I am sure you have heard tales of people earning thousands of dollars through Internet Marketing. So are those true? YES, they are!

My internet marketing journey started around 4 years ago when I saw one of my online buddies earning around 5000–10000 dollars per month through Internet Marketing. I was shocked. Not by the amount he was earning, but by the method he was using. I am no Internet Marketing Guru, neither do I want to become one. I am still learning, each and every day but in my 4 years of experience, I have learned a few things that I would like to share today.

So here are 3 reasons why most people fail at Internet Marketing.

1. Lack of Patience

Patience is the most important quality one needs to have in order to be a successful Internet Marketer. I have seen so many people fail at Internet Marketing just because they are not patient enough and they just don’t stick to one particular method. They might try out something for 10–15 days and then eventually give up. Why? Because they expect those huge numbers to roll in even before understanding what they are doing clearly. Let me burst that bubble for you. You won’t see those huge numbers unless you have patience and you keep on trying. Even if you are getting a really small amount of return, do not stop. Tweak your method, read more about how you can improve your content and eventually you will start seeing the results!

“If it was easy, everybody would do it.”

2. Do not simply copy what others are doing. Innovate!

Now this is something that even I am guilty of. I used to blindly copy what others did and expect results. You have to innovate. Sit down, take a paper and jot down what you can provide which people would like to share/purchase. You will be surprised by the amount of amazing ideas hidden in your brain!

3. Investing your time and money

You won’t start seeing that traffic roll in automatically. You have to work for it. Get ready to invest a small portion of your time in reading and implementing various methods. You have to spend your time in order to acquire various skills.I believe luck does play a roll in Internet Marketing but you cannot expect everything to magically workout. Moreover, I have seen people hesitate in investing their money into their Internet Marketing ventures. I am not talking about those crappy e-books about “How to earn 10k$ per day”. Invest wisely and only where required.
