Struggling with roller-coaster sales?
Your sales and profits should NOT be a guessing game…
If you don’t know from day-to-day or month-to-month where your income is going to come from, it’s going to be very stressful and demoralizing to run your business. Having a struggling business is just as bad as having a poorly paying job.
Marketing failure can lead to business failure. You can end up FAILING even if you have great products or services. If you don’t have a reliable way of getting more sales and profits, your business is doomed to failure…
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (2020), here’s the failure rate of small businesses:
- 21.9% fail within the first year
- 31.8% fail within the 2 years
- 50.0% fail within the first 5 years
- 65.7% fail within 10 years
Why is the failure rate so high for small businesses?
According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2018-2019 Global Report, the most common reason given for business failure is lack of profitability.
Cash flow problems lead to 82% of business failure, according to a U.S. Bank study. Cash flow is the lifeblood of your business. Growth requires working capital. It’s critical for buying inventory and equipment as well as hiring and paying employees.
It’s hard to build your business when you’re barely making ends meet…
Lack of profitability and cash flow problems are usually due to poor and inconsistent marketing. They’re symptoms of marketing failure…
Marketing failure is usually due to entrepreneurs making common mistakes. These mistakes lead to insufficient sales and profits. In turn, they lead to cash flow problems…
The majority of businesses are struggling to survive…
Most entrepreneurs are living a financial nightmare. They’re surviving on credit cards and loans. Some depend on a 9-5 job or a side-hustle to make ends meet.
According to Michael Michalowicz, author of Profit First, many entrepreneurs don’t take any salary from their companies… but, they’re one bad month away from bankruptcy.
Eventually, they end up running out of money and failing.
This is tragic…
Most entrepreneurs work really hard to build their businesses. So, what’s the problem?
They’re working really hard, but they’re doing the WRONG things…
Picking the right strategies for marketing is extremely important for becoming successful.
Making the wrong choices can set you back months or years. It can even kill your chances of building a profitable business.
If you’re making any of these marketing mistakes, you need to STOP immediately.
Marketing Failure Can Lead to Business Failure: Most Entrepreneurs Are Making Common Marketing Mistakes. So, They’re Doomed to Failure…
Repeated mistakes can be costly. It’s not just your time, money and energy that will get wasted. Marketing mistakes can keep you from having a profitable business for months or even years!
If you don’t learn to fix and avoid common marketing mistakes, they can keep blocking your progress. They can even kill your business.
Do not let that happen to you!
You need to stop using marketing strategies that FAIL to deliver results.
Instead, you need to focus only on reliable, predictable and scalable marketing strategies that can generate sales and profits every day.
For most entrepreneurs this is easier said than done. They usually hang in there… even with little to no payoff.
Most entrepreneurs take pride in working very hard. It’s considered a badge of honor to double-down and work even harder… especially if something is not working.
These business-killing mistakes are based on common marketing misconceptions. Unless you get rid of mistaken beliefs, they will keep blocking your path to profitability and success.
Did you know?
Effective marketing pays you. It’s not about working harder… longer… better. It’s about working smarter.
First, we’ll discuss common marketing mistakes… and how they can keep you from getting more sales and profits. Next we’re going to shift our focus on strategies that can speed-up your results…
We’re also going to discuss how you can MAXIMIZE your sales and profits…
Mistake #1: Juggling too many INEFFECTIVE marketing strategies… and struggling to get more sales.
Stop wasting your time juggling too many INEFFECTIVE marketing strategies. Instead, you need to start marketing smarter. So, you can get more sales and profits… WITHOUT working all the time.
Most entrepreneurs are overworked… but, they’re usually underpaid.
They’re using popular but INEFFECTIVE marketing strategies… and they’re failing to get results.
The problem is that there are hundreds of ways to market your products and services… and no one can effectively market his/her business in a hundred different ways.
It’s just not sustainable…
Just like millions of entrepreneurs marketing their own businesses, you’re probably constantly bombarded with an overwhelming amount of information about marketing. It can be very confusing to figure out which strategies can really help your business succeed.
It’s really tempting to use many strategies… but, that can actually hurt your business.
When you have too much to do… when you feel too overwhelmed… it’s hard to do effective marketing consistently.
If you can’t consistently get more sales and profits, you won’t have enough cash flow to grow your business. Eventually, your business will die…
Marketing failure can lead to business failure…
Yes, it’s really unfair… but, you can end up FAILING even if you have great products or services!
What can you do?
Instead of trying to use many ineffective marketing strategies and working so hard, you need to change your mindset. You need to focus on the MOST EFFECTIVE way to get MAXIMUM RESULTS.
Mistake #2: Working really hard, but focusing on the WRONG marketing strategies.
Instead of focusing on effective marketing that can generate sales and profits quickly… millions of entrepreneurs are spending most of their days creating content for their blogs and sites.
This can involve spending hundreds or thousands of hours blogging, writing articles, creating videos and other content…
They’re hoping that creating lots of content will eventually lead to lots of free traffic from Google and other search engines. They’re hoping that their hard work will someday lead to lots of traffic… and hopefully, lots of sales.
The SEO strategy is mostly based on “hope marketing” for many entrepreneurs. So, why is it so popular?
SEO is the most common traffic-generation advice newbies get from marketing gurus…
But, hope is a poor marketing strategy….
Depending too much on SEO to hopefully get free organic traffic from Google can create lots of problems for you.
There’s a lot of competition for getting top ranking on Google and other search engines…
There are at least 4.83 billion web pages online as of June 22, 2021, according to World Wide Web Size. There are 1.2 billion websites worldwide as of January 2021 (Siteefy.com).
The number of websites and pages competing for search engine ranking just keeps on growing…
The harsh reality is that most entrepreneurs will fail to get top ranking for their blogs and sites on Google and other search engines… When traffic never comes, their sales and profits never come. Without any income coming in, they end up giving up… disillusioned and demoralized.
Don’t let that happen to you!
You need to stop wasting your time, trying and hoping to get free SEO traffic. Creating lots of content is so time-consuming. It’s like a full-time job in itself. You end up with never having time for anything else.
It’s just not sustainable….
The long hours and hard work – especially with little or no payoff – can lead to burnout and despair. You need to avoid marketing methods that fail to deliver results… because they keep you overworked and under-paid.

Since Pareto’s time, other studies have also shown that in other areas of life, 80% of results are generated by 20% of activities. The 80/20 Rule also applies to business marketing.
