    Most people that just joined the world of internet marketing most times fail and bounce back why,

    Because they come into the game without enough preparations thinking that they can just make it that way on their own, due to the way they have heard about it before coming to join it...

    Most of them don't have specific target of what to work on, If it is blogging, Affiliate, SEO, etc please if you're new to this business please calm down and read about the field you want to specialize on before jumping into it ,

    Don't fall a victim of those thread that says make $1000 a day as a newbie, please work hard on your own, you will make it here its a sweet business but not a fast way of making money business, so thank you...

    Please you can share more mistakes that you seem most newbies make on IM

    The 2 mistakes that I see so many new internet marketers make are sort of tied together.

    1. They think that internet marketing is very easy and you work a few hours a week and get rich. That is not how it happens but they see things around the internet and they believe all the hype.

    2. They are lazy and not willing to put the hard work in to be successful and reach the top. They want to work a couple hours a week and have the money fall into their pockets. Internet marketing is a lot harder than new internet marketers think and they don't realize that you have to work hard to make big bucks and that is even more true when you start.

    That's a great point and too often new internet marketers fall for these kinds of things. They see a good looking post, thread, landing page or something else that makes promises of big money and they believe in what they see without looking deeper into it.

    The old saying of "If it looks to good to be true, then it probably isn't true" is something they should keep in mind.

    Before buying or otherwise jumping into something that you see online that offers easy money you should always investigate it to try to get some verification of it's validity.

    Sure @Dean that's a very big problem that they find themselves into and after that they will end it up saying that the internet is filled with scammers, which sometimes affects me when I want to sell a product they will be like, that I want to scam them, i will just let them to be without any quarrels and that's all I can do, most times I will be angry but I don't have any body to blame,

    With this, it is showing that those people that are afraid of buying some services online have been scammed before by those make $1000 a day contents, is that not greed? how can you expect to make such money as a newbie in one day, well that's all I have to say..

    Thanks dean for your review and reply

    As @Gifthoy noted, they could possibly fall for various scams. For instance, they might buy ineffective pop-under traffic etc.. Anyway, I cannot really blame people who fall for that stuff - mainly because the prices are highly affordable compared to AdWords, Facebook, etc..

    many people step into internet marketing thinking it is an easy job and you can make lots of money. They look at the people like Mark Zuckerberg and think if he can make money why can't I. What they don't know is whether they have ideas to make money, skills to make money and patience to make money. There is money to be made in the internet world, however, it is not easy because it is very likely that you will be scammed. There are too many scammers out there.
    People like Zuckerbergs are exception because very vew people are making millions on the internet, however, there are multitudes of people making a living from the internet.

    So true! I started blogging because of one of those "Get rich fast! It's easy!" sites. While I have learned a lot from it the reality is that it takes lots of hard work and studying to start earning your fair share. I'm still grinding because I know one day it will eventually come to it!

    Many people get started that way. Some of them give up when they find out that the money doesn't come as easily as they were lead to believe and some stick to it until they finally make it big.

    It's great that you are sticking to it and grinding away. That kind of dedication is one of the big factors in achieving success.

    I figured as much yes. the problem with most people is that they want it easy. They want money but they don't want to work hard for it. Like life owned them something. Once you understand that life doesn't owe you a thing and that you have to work hard because nobody will hand you out anything on a silver platter then you start to get a feel of what real life really is.

    One mistake that I made and I am sure that many other people have made is to at least somewhat believe that internet marketing is easy. It is easy to do but it does require a lot of time and dedication if you want to make a lot of money from your marketing.

    I figured out that when some people start out internet marketing, start free online advertising of their website, they think it’s a business with no costs at all; which is not true, all businesses have costs!!

    That's awesome Pedro. I wish more people understood and thought that way. So many people out there think they deserve something for nothing. In this world most of us have to work for everything we want and need.

    Truth! I wish I had known this earlier in my life. If I had started to work from an early age my life would definitely be better now. Work teaches us how hard it is to battle for the things that we want. If you have no work then your life is mostly pointless. Sad but true.

    You seem to have a good outlook on things Pedro. I have tried to get some family members and friends to understand this myself same thing without any luck.

    Oh, I face the same problem in my home. My father and mother were taught that studying should be a priority and work comes later. Unfortunately, one thing does not necessarily exclude the other and the sooner you start working the sooner you'll gather experience and be able to move to better jobs. Parents just don't seem to understand that the world has changed (And a lot) since they had our age.

    One mistake that some people I know have made is to be lazy and not work hard enough to get good success. I have had some people I know that are just lazy and post up a blog post once in a while and never take time to get traffic to their blog. They then complain that internet marketing does not work. You have to work hard and not be lazy to have good success.

    My parents were the same way. :)

    I have even been told that doing work online is not a real job because you are not leaving your house and going to work somewhere. Even though I make more than people who say these things.

    One big mistake that I see many new internet marketers do is to give up way too easily. Many stop trying if they don't make it big in the first few weeks of trying and just quit.

    Internet marketing success takes time and will not usually happen so fast but over time. Never give up untill you have gave it your best effort for 6 months to a year I think.

    I know just how you feel! I am working online for some small money. It's not what I dreamed of doing but still, it's what is available to me at the moment (Country going through some major economic crisis) Still nobody here seems to believe me. "Oh, yoy think you'll earn money online? That's just not true" Some people can't understand how the world has evolved.
