10 Internet Marketing Mistakes to Avoid

During Affiliate Summit in New York, I had to pleasure of meeting first year attendee Eric Solomo.

Eric was doing what all first time affiliates should be doing at a show like Affiliate Summit. He was asking seasoned affiliates questions and videoing their responds. Not only does Eric get answers to his questions, but the videos makes for great content to share with readers!

The video below features ten veteran affiliate marketers. They explain the top Internet marketing mistakes to avoid. Hopefully, you’re not making any of these mistakes.

        LOL! Even me I have no idea about what to answer. Respect John!

        This made me laugh audibly. You, sir, are an awesome person.

    2. You can always google and read review from bloggers or join the internet marketing forum community

      Hey Rudy, the problem with that question is that you will probably find at least one review and most likely several reviews on every affiliate program/MLM out there that says it’s a scam. The bad reviews are sometimes right on, but too often are made by people that don’t really know the program they are reviewing, They are merely reviewing based on their opinion and not on actually implementing that program. So my advice is you probably have to test them out yourself.

    Hello Sir,
    Thanks for sharing this informative post. Getting rich quickly mentality is one of the major problem for most of the people in my country. And this is also a big reason to fail in online business.

    Hi John! Thanks for sharing such a nice piece of information. I personally believe that a man should find a right mentor who doesn’t talk on success but always talks on how to avoid the mistake and can move on from the failures. Its good to read about avoiding the online marketing mistakes. A big help. Great job. Cheers.

  5. I like the second one mistakes – get quick rich mentality. Everyone want to be rich.

    But not everyone know that there is no way to make money fast. And I know, even John Chow take a time to get what he get now.

    By the way, this is a good thing to know John. Really appriciate it! 🙂

    Really nice to see some really famous faces in videos. I really like the advice of affiliate marketing that really we should first teach about the product and then go for selling it. I think this is the best video I watched today which made my day and learned new things from it.

    The video reminded me that it’s so important to have “WHY” in business.

  12. Jim says:

    Hey John you missed one “not having the right mindset”.

  13. Swapan says:

    Hi Chow, thanks for the innovative points of internet marketing mistakes. I think #9 is a very popular mistake an affiliate used to do might be replaced by “Help Fist, Sell Later”. Looking forward to your next magnetic contents.

  14. James says:

    Great video. some great points raised. Unfortuantely I learnt these the hard way over time. This post would have been great a while ago

  15. John

    Thank you for sharing this information. It was illuminating. The mistakes mentioned here can be irreparable and can be the cause of failure. For those who wish to do business in internet marketing I recommend them to watch this video. Learning and understanding these mistakes will definitely increase the chance of avoiding them.
    Thank you again John.


  16. Wonderful tips! Learning from own mistakes is important; but learning from others mistakes is vital. It reduces your chances of making the same mistakes that others have already warned you about. It makes a lot of sense to keep yourself updated in the field of blogging.

    Great video John. It made me sick with newsletter these days they always sent promotion or selling stuff to my email. I decided to unsubscribe half of them but I still keeping your email because you deliver high value to me.

    Best Regards,

  18. The greatest Mistake in Life is lack of Empathy…we rub people off!

    Hi John,

    Thanks for sharing this video.

    The biggest takeaways for me personally at this stage in my business are :

    #1 – Analysis Paralysis : I must admit that I fall victim to this sometimes too! 🙁

    #4 – Not tracking analytics properly – it’s true that it is SO VITAL to do this, but most people don’t do this.

    #9 – Selling Without solving – this is also vital, cause when you focus yourself on solving other people’s problems, you’ll sell automatically later in the process in a lot of cases.

    Looking forward to your next posts!

  24. Hi John;

    These are all good, except i would add for point 11 Talk to your leads. Creates a connection…shows you care…hear their concerns..solve their problem with a working solution. People want out of the rat race believe me…show them the way out! Get a conversation going.
