How to Fail In An OnLine Marketing Business

You have read the stories of tremendous successes and insane income people have earned in a few short days on the internet. The reality is a few people do generate very good incomes on the internet marketing products.

The truth is most people fail in this business. The steps to failure are easy. That is the bad news. The good news is that in knowing how to fail will give you direction and guidance in knowing then, what you must do to succeed.

Failure in 7 easy steps:

1. No experience. Internet marketing is a profession and just as any other profession, it is learned through experience and education. Think about your medical Doctor, the election who wired your home, the professor at the local university, all of these are professionals who have been educated in their vocation. Successful marketing on the internet is learned through observation, classes or by a mentor who has a proven system.

2. No testing or research. Is there a screaming demand for your product or service? Successful marketers are continually testing through multiple articles and ads to see if there is a hungry crowd looking for your product. Will your product or service market best through direct advertising or through articles in ezines or by videos on youtube? Have you tested various methods to find the starving crowd?

3. Lack of funds to start a home-based business. Do you have the funds and resources available to see you through to success? A sure fire way to failure is to cut off your primary source of income and leave your job without adequate reserve of funds available to you.

4. No System. Marketing on the internet requires following and using a proven marketing system. Successful marketers use a formula, a system that is tried and proven to achieve success. Without a proven system, failure is certain.

5. No Leadership or personal coach. Just as Michael Phelps had a coach that guided him to win 8 gold medals, Success in marketing requires a personal mentor who is committed to your success. This is very important, not just for you, but as you help those who will follow in your footsteps. You must have a coach/mentor who has walked the path before you. Those following you will ask, ‘how do I succeed?”

6. No detailed plan of action leads to failure. You must be held accountable to your coach and follow a specific daily plan of action. Imagine this. You have the funds and now want to have someone build you dream home. You hire a builder. You have the dream home pictured in your mind. However, without detailed drawings, plans, the builder cannot produce what is in your mind. Your business will succeed when you follow a daily action plan.

7. Not learning the skills along the way. Attending seminars and workshops of successful people and learning the skills of marketing is critical to your success. Can you write an article that will be published and read? Can you produce a video that thousands will watch on youtube? Can you write a creative ad that will draw a swarm of people to your website to purchase your product or service?

Failure is not an option. You will not fail when you find a Mentor who seriously has your best interest at heart. A mentor who will provide coaching and resources without selling you items which will benefit him/her financially. A good mentor will teach you the skills you need for success in an online business.

Restoring An Antique is like building a home-based business.

Building a home based business is like restoring an antique car that has
not been driven for 65 years.

Wayne found a 1926 Star Coupe in a garage. Because this car had not
been driven for 65 years, it had deteriorated immensely. It took
20 years searching for replacement original parts, replacing rotten
out wood frame work with new hard wood, carved and shaped for the
roof structure.

Many hours of work has paid off, the 1926 car runs like it did 82
years ago when it was new! I know it takes time to build a
home-based business. However, I also know it will not take 20 years
to make a very good profit when you have the right tools. When you
have the right system to follow.

The production of the Star automobile only lasted two years. Like
many other car manufacturers of that era, it ceased to be. Why did
this car manufacturer fail when Ford prospered? Ford used and
followed a system. Like Ford your home business will only prosper
when you follow a proven system.

Zoomica is a system to a life of prosperity and abundance.

Now you too can enjoy life as much as Wayne and Sheila enjoy their
1926 Antique Car, a 1926 Star Coupe.

A Distraction Is A Distraction

Did you read that? A Distraction is a Distraction!

I don't know about you - but my story could be this.

I get up early, 5 am before most of the world gets
turned on. Before God turns the lights on, outside!
I have plans, I have a project scheduled to do
before the world wakens.

Coffee is perking, I turn my computer on, my
project to work on is on my desk also giving a yawn
and waking up to the smell of coffee.


My computer tells me there is an important
email from a colleague. Read it now. I do.
He has given me a link to another website
I really need to review - now. I do.


It is now 9 am, time for another cup of coffee.
And to make my wife her breakfast cup of tea.
She loves her cup of tea while doing the bathroom
getting ready for the day stuff a wife does.


It is now 9:45 am - must finish up the project
that my colleague directed me to before he
calls me about 11 am to review.

My personal to do project is patiently
sitting on my desk taking another stretch
and smiling knowing that sooner or much
later I will get to "her".


An hour with my colleague on his project
well, that was not the plan for today.
However, it was important.


Noon and I always eat lunch right at 12 noon.
Never a minute late either.

This day is going by quickly and really so far
all I have accomplished were the Distractions.

A Distraction is always a distraction.

My success following a system and
being focused on "this one thing I do".

The moral of the story - stay focused.


This one thing I do.
