For most internet marketers who are just starting out failure can seem like a bad thing. However, I beg to differ and I am going to explain exactly why it isn’t the case and why failure in internet marketing is practically required in order to be successful.
When we first attempt to set up our auto responder follow up series or to “pimp” our Twitter profile page, we most definitely will hit some kind of a challenge. When we face these kind of challenges, we know that are capable of overcoming them, because let’s face it, it’s not that big of a deal.
However, when it comes to something bigger, like Internet Marketing Success, we tend to get upset very quickly because we have to overcome a lot of challenges to get where want to be. Often, newbie marketers get so much upset that they consider themselves failures just because they didn’t generate the 40,000 in their first 3 month on the internet like the “Ebook Guy” did.
Not being able to overcome challenges like crafting a quality lead capture page or writing a compelling copy, can get an internet marketing new comer so frustrated that he can and in most cases probably will quit the whole thing.
However, we must understand and embrace the fact that failure is necessary for internet marketing success. Moreover, it is the inevitable outcome of action. When we take action, we are destined to fail. Fail and Learn from our mistakes. This is in fact the fastest way to learn – take action and fail.
If I were you, I would dream to fail as miserably as I only can within the first couple of weeks of starting out my internet marketing business. That way I would be so much smarter and would have an amazing advantage over every single competitor within my niche.
Embracing the fact that failure leads to growth and expansion will not only push you forward in the moment of despair but will make you realize that life would be just plain boring without it.
