    Why Most People Fail at Marketing Anything on the Internet
    by Dan Hamilton

    Dear Friend,

    Do you know why most people fail at marketing anything on
    the Internet? Even though the products or services they are
    trying to sell are awesome?

    Pause a minute, regardless of your present level of success,
    and try to find out the #1 reason for failure so you can
    avoid making the same marketing mistake most people make
    over and over. It is fairly simple: once they have caught
    someone's attention, most people will start shouting about
    how great their products or services are - "nothing that you
    will have ever seen..."

    Generally, when you own a "brick-and-mortar" business, you
    get to meet face-to-face with your potential customers at
    least once. That's how people get acquainted and how
    business relationships are established and eventually
    develop into long-lasting and mutually beneficial rapports.

    It's a fact, people are usually more enticed to do business
    with someone they feel they can trust. Believe me my friend,
    establishing trust on the Internet is the most difficult and
    challenging thing to accomplish. Why is that? There are at
    least two reasons:

    1. People don't get to see each other, to feel each other,
    to see each other's expressions and body language which
    helps to gauge the person that is in front of us and
    immediately determine whether we want to do business with
    that person or not. Don't we say we have 5 seconds to make
    a good or bad impression?

    2. There is so much hype and false promises. A lot of people
    have been led the garden path and are loosing confidence it
    is even safe to do business online.

    A few dishonest and unscrupulous people are making the
    majority of Internet marketers' life harder than ever. If
    you want to be successful online, your #1 goal is to
    establish a trustworthy relationship with your potential

    Instead of shouting about your products or services right
    off the bat, try to know their needs first!

    Do that everyday and experience the difference it makes to
    your business. As we know, a good reputation takes years to
    be built and only seconds to be ruined. Keep that in mind my
    friend and happy marketing!

    and shorten the journey leading to your success.

    All the best,
