Top Mistakes Newbies Make

By Mohnish On December 4, 2008 Under Guides and Tuts

Here are some of the biggest mistakes newbies make. If you are a newbie and making any of these mistake, its time to take your lesson.

This post is for people who are just planning to enter into an online business and want to make money online. With the economy going south and the more and more job losses everyday, this post can be helpful for those people.

So, have a look:

  1. Not believing that money can be made online.
  2. Assuming that making money online is very easy.
  3. Giving up too early (actually, at a time when you are just going to make it).
  4. Starting a “how to make money online blog.”
  5. Buying all those “make quick money” ebooks for $10 to $100 each on digital point forum.
  6. Starting many things together and loosing enthusiasm in completing them.
  7. Creating an e-commerce site (based on BANS etc.) of hundreds of pages and assuming sales will come.
  8. Entering into a niche which they know nothing about. Just entered because it is a profitable niche.
  9. Targeting very generic niches and not giving much attention to long tail keywords.
  10. Not having anybody for their help (its not their mistake, but still).
  11. Not willing to spend any money or actually spending too much money (without know that it will produce results or not).
  12. Assuming that they are clever than search engines/advertisers and breaking their TOS.
  13. Using those link farms to get easy links.
  14. Spamming social networking sites and then getting banned.

These are the few which are coming to my mind right now. Do you know some more and would like to add here, please add them.

    Great post and something that all newbie go through at one time or another. It’s a big learning curve and it takes time to make money online. I think it’s a great experience though as long as you don’t get discouraged.
    Thanks for the post

    Very good post and all great points. I will add that another mistake newbies make is not geting the education and skills that they need. Learning is the key and it never stops

    I found this post via Digg. Great writeup and very encouraging. I, too, am an oldie, but I must admit I have been tempted to give up early. You give very good advice — pick one thing, one thing you know well, and stay with it!

    Good points. I believe the #1 mistake people make is giving up too early. 98% of the time, it takes TIME. Thanks for the info.
