Following Up and Following Through

Why You Will Fail

You know why the majority of web publishers and bloggers fail to make money online? The answer is really simple – they fail to follow up and follow through with their goals. Ever since opening TTZ Media to the public, I’m been constantly reminded of this lack of follow up and follow through.

Nearly 200 sites have joined the TTZ Media Network since it went live. However, only about 20% have installed the ad codes. Why? People are lazy! They want the quick fix, the instant gratification, and they don’t want to do any work to get it. This is why get rich quick eBooks and schemes does so well. It’s a universal desire to want the better things in life for ourselves and our family. However, very few people are willing to take the steps necessary to make that dream a reality.

I Want To Do It But I Don’t Want To Do Any Work

Through my blog, I’ve talked to thousands of people who tell me they want to make money on the Internet and they’re going to start that blog. For most of them, I’m still waiting to see the blog. Then there are those have actually followed up and created the blog but then stop updating it after a week because they’re not seeing the expected results. They did the follow up, but they didn’t follow through. Based on these past experiences, I really shouldn’t be at all surprised that a bunch of people applied to TTZ Media but only a minority follow through and installed the ad codes.

I was talking to my Kontera rep and he tells me the hardest part of his job is actually getting the publishers to install the ad codes. To me, this kind of stuff just defies logic. They are approved, they have the ad codes, they can now make money online. Why are the codes not installed? How much work are we talking about here? If you don’t even have time to copy and paste an ad code, how will you ever find time to actually write a blog post?

The Root of The Problem

Have you ever attended motivational seminars? I’ve been to a few. The sequences of events are always the same. People come out all fired up and ready to take on the world and change their lives for the better. A week later they’re back doing the same old routine. The seminar operators know this and count on it. If everyone they teach became successful, they’re be out of business.

The root of the problem all comes back to following up and following through. It’s all well and good to say, “I’m going to do it! I’m going to succeed!” However, if you don’t follow up and follow through with your words, then your words are nothing more than a big fat lie.
