Two reasons why I took too long to make my first sale online

It took a long time before making my first money online, it took me more than a year to make my first sale online and it took me more than four years to make my first $100 a day online.

There are many reasons that contributed to the condition but for me, two stood out more, first not taking action and second taking the wrong action.

Two reasons why I took too long to make my first sale online


Not Taking Action

This was my biggest problem, I joined a lot of programs in my first year online and I really never took action in any of them, it is actually embarrassing, because sometimes I try to join a program and it seems that I was a member of it four years ago and I don’t remember anything.

I had many excuses for that, I was not feeling well; I had to go to University, I had to watch football, I did not like the person who presented the course etc.

I did this for a long time and as a result, I made zero money in almost a year.

Taking the wrong action

The second reason that it took me a long time to make my first sale online was that I was taking the wrong action.

They were some days when I will say, I am done with this today  I am going to make this work, I was doing some stuff like reading gurus blogs, reading emails, watching training videos, not building a list. Yes, this time I was taking actions but most of those actions were not going to make me any money.

For me, those two were the main reasons that it took me a long time to have any kind of success online, in order to change this I did two things.

Things I did to change the situation.

The first thing I did was to change my mindset, you know I grew up in a non-entrepreneur family, the success formula for me was going to school, get good grade to find a job, I did those and always I had someone to tell me what to do, as a was a kid, my parents did that, when I was at school, my teachers did that and when I had a job my boss did that.

Starting an online business and not having anyone to tell me what and when to do things was a new thing to me and it was very difficult for me to take action.

I started reading business and motivational books, watching videos in personal development and with time, my attitude changed and started taking some action.

The second thing I did was to find a solid plan to follow, I was very lucky I joined a program called Dotcomsecrets by Rusell Brunson, the guy is a marketing genius,the program was a 90 days programs but the challenge was to make your first sale in the first 30 days, guess what I made my first sale in my 21 day.

I still use the same formula since and it helped me to start making a solid income online.

The bad news is that he discontinued the program but the good news is that he made a book and that teaches everything that was in that program. You can get the book here for free, you just need to pay for shipping.
