It has happened again! People are complaining about the amount of money that they are making on the Internet.

I know this for a fact because I read it every day in Internet marketing forums all around the world. To that I say it is time for some of you to wake up and smell the Internet marketing coffee so to speak.

How long you have had your Internet business is really irrelevant. For someone to say I have been working at building my Internet business now for one year and I am not making money doesn't tell me one thing about their business.

For example, I have no idea what they have been doing for the last year. Some people think logging in surfing around looking at websites is building their business.

Others think that hanging out in discussion forums and having a good time is building their business too! It just doesn't work that way.

The only way you are going to make any money on the Internet is to get meaningful traffic. You really don't even know if the traffic you are getting is meaningful until you start getting any kind of traffic at all.

Once you get traffic then you can start monitoring what your traffic is doing. What pages are they coming to your site on, how long are they staying on your site, are you getting any positive responses, and so on!

You can work on changing the message on your site after you get the traffic and see how it is converting. If you don't think it is converting then change the message that you are giving to your visitors.

If you feel like you have a good message then your products may not be right and you need to take a look at what you are promoting. This is the reason why promoting affiliate products you personally believe in works so well.

You don't have to worry about whether the product is good if you already own it and believe in it yourself. You just get that message across to visitors and then play the numbers.

For somebody to complain that they are not making any money after one year and yet they are getting less than 500 visitors a day to their website is a joke. This is pretty harsh language, but it's the reality of Internet marketing today.

In actuality it is the reality of internet marketing since the beginning of time. If you are not getting traffic, capturing names for follow up, doing email marketing, and repeating this process over and over, you just are not going to make any money.

That is the bottom line. It is time to wake up and smell the Internet marketing coffee and determine whether you are going to start making money or quit pretending like it and go do something else.

I hope you stick with it and do what it takes from here on out.
