Insanity! The Harsh Truth About Why People Fail Online


Definition of Insanity:

“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!”

Are you doing “nothing” on a daily basis.. expecting cash to magically fall in your bank account?

Let me ask that another way:

What are you doing TODAY and everyday to put bucks in your pocket and build your business online?

If you can’t answer that, then you have 2 choices:

1. Stop making “excuses”, start getting serious and start DOING
2. Give up, unsubscribe from everyone and be content in your current situation!

If you’re afraid of “work” or believe that the “easy button” actually exists.. and/or you’re not willing to put in some “elbow grease” or effort to build a business, then option #2 is for you.

The absolute WORST excuse for a refund came to me this past week, and that was..

“it’s just too hard”

Huh?  That’s why this person asked for a refund?  You’ve got to be kidding me!

That’s not a reason.  That’s purely an “excuse”. There’s a HUGE difference.

People who make excuses never, ever see success in life and/or business.  Sorry to be harsh, but that’s the cold hard truth.

Ok, so you’re thinking:

Ok, Dave.  Great point.  I get it, but what do you recommend I DO today?!

And my answer is..

Start learning how to generate Traffic!

If you want to instantly eliminate info overload and have a clear direction of how to make money online, then that’s the answer.

The #1 skill and task (and I REPEAT), the number ONE task that will make you cash on the Internet is.. the ability to generate Traffic! (Period; end of story)

Not willing to understand and DO that?

Then quit; give up. This business is not for you. Otherwise..

If you’re ready to accept reality and you understand that there’s no “easy” button, and that there’s actual work involved and that “Yes!” everything’s going to seem “too hard” when you’re first getting started, and/or you’re tired of being like everyone else, making little to no bucks online, and renewing your subscription to the “get around to it” club, then find a traffic generation course and start DOING what it teaches.

If you don’t have one, the training I personally recommend is Traffic Dashboard

Where do you send traffic?

1. Go to Clickbank.com/marketplace
2. Search products by niche, then by gravity.
3. The products with the highest gravity are proven to convert to sales.
4. Start generating traffic through your unique affiliate link, provided by Clickbank, for the product you’ve chosen.

There, you have it. An “info overload” busting simple way to make bucks online.

All you need are 3 things to make money online:

1. An offer
2. Traffic, and
3. Conversions.

That’s it.

The ‘offer’ and ‘conversions’ part is easy (I just told you where to find both in one place).

The “traffic” part?

That’s easy too. I just pointed you to a resource that gives you more training for your dollar than any other on the market!

And the better news is..

You can drive a lot of traffic without spending a penny for it if you know the “little known” but very effective methods as seen here…

*It’s extremely affordable for everyone and you get much more than you paid for, and it’s NOT the same ole, same ole that everyone else is putting out. It’s fresh and loaded with “a-ha” moments for generating traffic regardless of your experience.

The only thing left to do is choose not to be a member of the “do nothing and be like everyone else, who’s doing nothing” club, and take some real accountable action.

No more excuses!

Just do it!


P.S. If you already have traffic training, go back to it NOW and pick ONE method and put it into action today.  Otherwise, here’s where to get started on the right foot…

    Can’t argue with you Dave!
    Some people need to make the mistakes – including the one that believeing there’s a button – before they finally ‘get it’.
    The truth is, that some people do find what some of us find easy, very hard.
    If they simply give up now, without making the errors that teach them – and I’ll bet you’ve had your fair share, they might never discover a way out of what for them could be a nightmare.
    So, just like the “easy button” folks, don’t try to over-simplify a complex problem.

    Hi Mike

    All fair comments with a valid point of view. Thanks for sharing.

    Dave has reminded me I should post my comments here, for others to read, and has already responded nicely to the following:

    Thanks for this (in my case, preaching to the choir) and I’m sorry you had a frustrating potential client, but for my part, (wanting to enable people to create their own work from their passions,) it’s interesting to see that the same types pass before IM marketers as us.

    The second thing–(is it okay to mention this?)– I just unsubscribed from someone yesterday who got mad and made a preachy angry video and shot it out to his entire list. Actually it was just one (difficult) person’s attitude that was getting to him. I had to take his age into account, however I feel part of being a good business person is taking such people in stride (they’re everywhere) and not using them as an excuse to preach to their list. (Which gets “holier-than-thou” sounding.)

    The ones who stay on the list ARE THE CHOIR! The rest don’t matter. Working with integrity is key. It’s about who you are, not the behaviour of a few. (This thing doesn’t like British spelling!) I know you know that, and you’re worth hanging in with.

    Whatever is responsible, we live in a world where it’s just too hard for some people (particularly people who don’t have huge health, wealth, family, or country-of-birth challenges to overcome) to take charge of their own lives and do something. It’s hard to live near them, work around them, have to be on a committee with them, and, obviously, to sell them on the idea they have to work to bring change into their lives.

    I could cry when I see it in my own friends, and am miserable when forced to endure their excuse-making. But I’m their friend, first and foremost. My life will be over one day. What the impact of it will be on these people depends on my daily choices–rant and tell them off, or quietly live my message and love the nuts in spite of themselves.

    The trick for us “take action people”is to calmly work with the ones who sincerely desire to change, with whatever gift God has given us, and be who we are. We are meant to influence the world in a positive way.

    And, I know you know your stuff. Thanks for it.

    Hi Hannah

    Guess I sounded a little “preachy”, but my intention was to make a point that so many people “do nothing” without realizing it, because they “feel” like they are doing “something” after hours of reading emails and distractions that leave them dead tired at the end of the day, and so forth. The refunder was just a side note. My goal with the post was to “shock” people into looking at what’s really happening day to day; to serve as a reality check. And of course, to invoke responses like yours from a different point of view.

    Thank you for posting your view. All very good points!
