No Online Success -- Just More Failures by Marc Charles

3:22 PM

Greetings:

I've enclosed a thread I found on Warrior Forum the other day.

There are very few sites that compare to Warrior Forum when it comes to Internet Marketing and web based businesses.

If you follow sites that are better -- in terms of traffic, participation, and a great blend of newbies and seasoned professionals.......please send them my way.

Its been thousands of dollars I've burned through for
the past 8 years and haven't made a profit. I spend countless money
promoting this or that and get no returns at all. I truly feel helpless now.
I create a squeeze page I buy domain names, I do everything the gurus tell me...
Yet I don't make a single profit.

This month alone I spent $800 on advertising and haven't made
a single profit... I buy traffic from Facebook or another "top teir" traffic source
only to be left on the short end of the stick... again.

There has to be something I'm doing wrong, after 8 years and not turning a single profit
there has to be something I'm doing wrong or am I just having bad luck in life ?

Over the 8 years in IM I probably spent close to $4000 in buying training courses,
ebooks and the next best thing, also jumping into MLM but, failed at everyone. It annoys
me because everyone else on the internet makes it seem so real and easy. Please I seek help, I'm 24 years old and running out of options.

AzoogleAds = $950.00 (They shutdown due to crazy voodoo)
CJ = $300 8 Years Later
Various Affiliate Sites = $200 8 Years Later
Clickbank = $0.00 8 Years Later

Thanks,

Ya, something is wrong if you haven't done well in 8 years.

But, there are so many reasons, your not being very specific. You buy traffic and send it to a squeeze page. What is the conversion on the squeeze page? Do you have a sales funnel in place? How well is that converting?

How big is your list(s)? how often do you mail them? What do you mail them? What is your open rate? What is your CTR?

It can all be tracked and should be tracked, then you can pin point what is not working.

Could be so many thing. You gotta give more info.

I would recommend that you get yourself a mentor.

I have been struggling for a few years myself without making any money, but after I got myself a mentor I started seeing money coming in.

That is what I would recommend you to do.

top Spending Money.

Listen, I began in the business 20 years ago. This was a time when no one really had a clue. You had no moneymaking guides. Blogs didn't exist. And if someone had suggested paying for private access to a forum, people would have pointed and giggled.

Investment is a key ingredient to a successful business. BUT . . . you need to know how to invest first. No offense, but you don't. Stop spending until you do.

Now, instead of writing the typical 20,000 word dissertation you often see in this vicinity, a wordy novel with literally zero worth, I'm going to give you some pointed advice. It won't be perfect because I don't know you well enough, and it won't be all you need, because I don't have the time.

1. In case I haven't made myself clear already: Stop spending money.
2. Learn how to setup a squeeze page and a sales funnel.
3. Learn how to send FREE TRAFFIC from Youtube, FB, G+, and Twitter.
4. Grow your list.

If you don't already have hosting and something like aWeber, and I really hope you do after blowing 8K, you can get them cheap. It costs nothing, if done correctly, getting traffic on those social networks.

You take my advice and in 3 to 6 months, you'll have a real business. Carry on doing what you're doing and you'll just be another guy who blew a ton of cash and failed.

This is your wake-up call, buddy. Time to make some money.
