10 Internet Marketing Mistakes to Avoid

10 Internet Marketing Mistakes to Avoid

Lets take a look at some of the internet marketing mistakes that many newbies make.

How often as newbies did we jump into internet marketing with no idea of what we were doing and what it took to succeed?

Many people who have tried internet marketing don’t succeed because they don’t believe that it will work. Many people  acted on a whim expecting to get everything for free, or that they don’t have to work. In many ways I blame the gurus for this thinking as they keep talking about how they made so much money in a short time and that it was so e-a-s-y. The fact is that these gurus were also newbies at one time and they also made their share of internet marketing mistakes.
Personally, I would have a lot more respect for these gurus if they were upfront about the mistakes they  made and what they learned.

By the way ( while I am on a bit of a rant)  there is another type of newbie who will make the biggest mistake of all, do you want to know who they are? This particular newbie is a person who has this dream of working online full time, looking for that “proven system”. This particular newbie believes that when they find that proven system they will be rolling in the money with little to no work. To prove that point these people will spend all their money ( not to mention their time) buying product after product. These people will get themselves in debt as they max out their credit cards.  Sooner or later they will give up and say that internet marketing is a fraud. I find that sad..don’t you?

I feel that we can agree that internet marketing is serious business and there is a lot to learn. Here are 10 common mistakes that internet marketers make. These mistakes are ones that many newbies and experienced people have made time after time.  When you read each of these mistakes, write down how you will or would solve these problems.

The best way to learn is understanding that you will make mistakes, the trick is to learn from them and then pass on what you have learned to others.
Remember – You are not alone! ( unless you choose to be 🙂 )

  • “How to Make a Million Bucks in a Minute!” Yes, the number one mistake I have observed over the years is this very thing: People expect to get rich over night with no effort and no work, and when they don’t, yes… they then pompously declare it all to be a scam. Well, by the same token, so is the local hardware store…

  • It is true enough that affiliate marketing is financially rewarding. People who have gone through everything to be able to succeed in this business are reaping the seeds that they untiringly sowed. Many of them enjoy the kind of existence that was not possible for them to have had under ordinary circumstances. Having gone through the A-Z of affiliate marketing, however, these people are the ones who know that while such business is lucrative, there is absolutely no easy money in it.

  • Oh, “Get rich quick” how many times have we heard that? Its no wonder newbies fall for this trap over and over again. There is no “get rich quick” scheme that works in the long term. Most people fail because they never get started, in fact, 99.9% of people in internet marketing never get started.

    List building is one the most potent methods to get successful online. Based on personal observation, many people especially when they start, don’t get started with list building because they don’t have their own product (hint: you don’t need your own product!) Instead they end up falling for other traps, its sad. But the money is in the list!

    Great infographic by the way. I love it! 😀

  • Hi Diane

    Indeed a great post about internet marketing mistakes.

    I am glad that you have covered the major internet marketing mistakes which almost every internet marketers do.

    Internet marketing is the best way of making money online and the best part about it is, It allow internet marketers to earn with few but potential visitors. We don’t need huge amount of traffic to earn. We only need 10 targeted visitors who can purchase the product.

    The most common mistake which internet marketers make is, they promote so many products at once without having any experience with them.

    To earn more, internet marketers pick every high paying product and start promoting them but don’t get any sales from them because they don’t focus on each product correctly that’s why they are unable to makes sales.

    Every successful internet marketer suggest to promote only those products which you have personally used.

    I would like to thank you for sharing such a great piece of content. 😀
