    Not, why do people fail? But, why do people succeed?

    It is important to avoid the things that would cause you, and your associates, to fail at internet marketing. However, I think it is even more important to learn and implement the things that are responsible for people's success.
     
    I get one answer every time someone, who I would consider successful, is asked to give advice; provide value.
     
    In every aspect of every business, online or offline, the main founding business principle that is responsible for every marketers success is to provide value.
     
    People do not go to your website, blog, tele-seminar, webinar, forum, etc., because you, as a marketer, might benefit from them being there. They engage in these activities because they, as a visitor, customer, affiliate, etc., might benefit from being there.
     
    If the visitor does not benefit in the way they expected, they will go elsewhere. It's just the way it is. So, why not make sure it is an absolute no-brainer for your visitor to benefit in the way they expected, with absolutely no regard for what is in it for you, as a marketer?
     
    Not only is it necessary to provide value upon meeting a visitor, it is absolutely vital to the life of your business to continue to provide value in every aspect, and every stage of your business. From the first visit to your website, blog, etc., to long after your visitor has already bought your product and/or service, and at all times in between.
     
    The very small percentage of marketers who succeed in this business promote their products and/or services as if they have nothing to gain from a person buying that particular product or service.
     
    If, while marketing your product and/or service, you are thinking about how it will benefit you, as a marketer, if someone buys your products and/or services, it is very unlikely that you will succeed.
     
    Promote your products and/or services with one thought in mind; how will this product and/or service benefit other people? Perhaps in the same way it has benefited you, yourself, as a consumer of that particular product and/or service.
     
    It is very necessary to learn the skills it takes to succeed in your business. If someone asked me to fix an airplane, I would look at them like a deer in headlights. I would have to learn a whole lot of new skills in order to be able to fix an airplane on my own, or even help someone else fix an airplane.
     
    Many people take the time and effort to learn these new skills, however learning these new skills will do you absolutely no good, unless you actually take action, and implement these skills into your own business.
     
    Practice what you have learned. Otherwise, all of the time, money, and effort you put into starting your own business will be for not.
     
    I hope this post made a light bulb come on for atleast one person. If that is the case, it was well worth writing.
     
    Good luck.

    Provide value is good advice. What I have to add to differentiate between marketing and sales. Marketing is generating interest in the product/service. Whereas, sales is converting the interest and closing the deal. In the end we have to sell and marketing is only a means to that end.

    Thank you for your input bogart.

    I'm sorry you weren't impressed Aziz.

    I don't know about you, but I have seen more people than not get into internet marketing thinking, "How much money can I make, and how fast can I make it?"

    As opposed to, "How much value can I provide, and how much help can I be to how many people?"

    I read alot of helpful posts about something I already subcontiously do, most of the time. After reading the post, I make an effort to contiously do whatever I got out of the post, every time.

    Like I said, if this post helped atleast one person, it was worth writing.

    Good luck.

    You learn about the Marketing Mix aka the 4 Ps (product, price, placement, promotion) in Marketing 101. Today, the marketing manager is taking a new approach called SIVA Marketing Mix (solution,information,value,access) which emphasizes customer-centric marketing.

    The SIVA approach is what the internet marketer should be thinking.

    This is how the Marketing Mix changes from the 4 Ps approach to SIVA.

    Product ==> Solution
    Promotion ==> Information
    Price ==> Value
    Placement ==> Access

    I'm glad to see that traditional marketing is evolving into something a bit better.

    “Fail” is a 4-letter word – the ultimate “F” word, you might even say. In this article, I’ve identified the Top 5 reasons people fail at achieving their goals. You may find that one, two, or even all five of these relate to your life and experience with goal setting. If that’s the case, don’t despair. Following each reason are some questions you can use to turn them around. You’ll start to experience real progress – not just movement that seems to go nowhere. As you read these, be honest with yourself – but not harsh. Take the time to answer the questions and think about alternate ways of doing things so that 2010 will be a year of massive goal ACHIEVEMENT for you!

    fail is normal, no one (very few) will success with one time trial, most important is understand why you fail and try again

    People fail in Internet Marketing because of lot of reasons. Some would not know about what people need and some would not work hard to achieve the success and some will expect the result sooner for their work. People will become successful in online only when they are consistent in what they are doing, working hard, maintaining time discipline in work, should try to know about what people are in need. Just shared what i know with my experience.
