As you all know I recently surveyed my list. Well, finally here are the results and my take on them.
Q1. Do you already have an online business generating more than $3000 or more per month?
- Yes = 0%
No surprises here, but doesn’t mean there aren’t people earning something, just not more than $3000 per month.
Q2. Based only on your business results so far, do you feel it’s likely that your business will generate $ 3,000 per month in the next six months?
- Yes= 30%
Well, based on the previous question it’s nice to see some optimistic people. You need to think big! It is very possible to make $3000 or more from a standing start in 6 months. I can understand people saying no, because that’s based on previous experience. With the right teaching it really is possible.
Q3. Which of the following do you think has been stopping you achieving the results you desire?
- Lack of direction/ Information overload = 20%
- Lack of funds to put into business = 20%
- Lack of technical experience = 30%
- Lack of time = 10%
- Fear of launching your own product = 10%
- Lack of motivation = 0%
- Lack of support from family or partner = 10%
I’m a bit surprised at the answer to this one. Why? because anything technical can either be learnt or outsourced to other people. If that’s all your problems are, then you could easily get your business off the ground!
Q4. What type of business are you currently working on at the present time?
We had a variety of answers for this ranging from nothing to affiliate product creation. Some people didn’t seem to understand the question and were telling me about their day jobs!! I actually think it was my fault for not making the question clearer.
Q5. What is the main thing you think would help to move your business forward?
Once again we had quite a few variations on this which means people are at different stages in their business. Such as:
Encouragement, membership site, personal mentoring, traffic driving methods, affiliate training etc.
Q6. What have you had the most success with online?
- Affiliate Marketing = 50%
- Own Products = 0%
- Authority Site = 0%
- Niche Monetised (adsense, clickbank,amazon)
- Other = 30% (i.e nothing)
A bit surprised at this answer again. Affiliate Marketing is actually quite difficult to get off the ground unless you know the procedures. So this is suggesting that certain people probably know more than they think they do. That’s promising!!
Q7. If there was any training / support I could provide for you , what would it be?
Lots of variations again here. From:
Simple explanation of the fundamentals to traffic blueprint to books to something that gets real results. OK , I can help here too.
Q8. How long have you been trying to start a business online.
- 1-2 years = 10%
- 2-3 years = 20%
- 3-5 years = 10%
- 6 months to 1 year = 10%
- under 6 months = 20%
There’s no shame whatsoever in admitting you’ve been trying for years with no results. I did too. I’m not exactly raking it in yet, but I’m starting to see results and am building a steady, sustainable online income. I’m being mentored by a millionaire whom I paid $ 5000 for his personal attention. I can pass that on to you, without the pricetag!! I hope you’re excited now?
Q9. If you were to purchase a $37 product on a particular subject, what would it be?
- Affiliate Marketing = 60%
- Email Marketing = 0%
- Pay per Click = 10%
- Facebook = 10%
- Twitter = 0%
OK, judging by the previous answers, no surprise this time.
Q10. If you could call down the internet marketing fairy and ask for just one thing that would make the biggest change to yourself, what would it be?
Strange question, I know but we had some great answers.
- How to spent a certain amount of time getting going on one product at a time
- Creative advice
- Knowing where to start
- getting visitors to site
- a true over the shoulder view of making a business a success
- be clever at this business.
As you can see, they look like different answers, but in fact are THE SAME answer. It can be confusing, but if you follow a proven system then it can work for you too .
How about following me as I make a success of my business. Every time I learn something, I’ll pass it on to you.
