10 Challenges Of Online Business

"I had been running my shop for months. But still no sales! Hundreds of thousands of dollar had burned. What am I going to do?"

Above was from a friend of mine.

Yup, there are always challenges on business, no matter it is an online or offline business. However, if you are running an online affiliate business, you are lucky!

No business is risk-free! Including online affiliate business. However, you only lose a little if you fail compared to offline business which may cost you hundred of thousands or even millions of dollar.

Let have a quick check what are the possible losses for online affiliate business.

You work from home. This has saved a huge cost on office renovation, rental, utilites, and transportation!

You don't need to stockpile. Because you are promoting other people's products. You had saved another huge cost!

You hire yourself. No cost of employment. You have saved another huge cost that may cause a corporation to bankrupt!

So.... what are the challenges of online business do I have?

10 Common Challenges of Online Business:

1) Products are too common

Common product has a huge market. That also means there are tons of people is promoting it! Some of them are giant. You will kick out of the range if you are not fit to the game!

2) Products had no market value

When audient didn't find value in the product you promote, why do you think they want to buy? Same thing, do you buy useless stuff?

3) Confusing content

Visitors do not understand what are you trying to tell them. They will just move on to other website and will never come back again.

4) Weak and boring content

This is one of the biggest problems. Some website filled with content what you just don't feel engage because the content is not attractive.

5) Overdoing on sales push

Do you like to read advertisements? I bet you bet you don't. Same goes here in a website. If your website is too sales push, you will push your potential client away!

6) Low traffic

Low traffic is just like you have a shop, but very less visitor. In the real world, you got less visitor because you don't do enough marketing work. In the online world, it simply means you don't do enough online marketing work!

7) Visitors touch and go

This simply means your keywords and message are not match. Imagine if you search about apple, but the landing page was about a banana, you probably will leave the site without a second thought!

8) Visitors don't want to buy

Visitors want to know how you think about the product. If visitors read the same think like they had read in Amazon, they probably will go back to Amazon! Because, you have no reason for them to buy from you.

9) Products are lousy

Reputation is very important to any business. Same goes to online business. Selling a lousy product will ruin your website's reputation! When it broke, it is very hard to fix. Even you can fix it, there are still cracks remain. So, please do some research first before promote!

10) Too many competitors!

When the start up capital is low, it simply means a lot of people can afford to start their online business just like that. This also means you will compete will thousands or even millions of online affiliate marketer. You will find even harder when you compete with super affiliates!

It is not easy to overcome the 10 common challenges of online business listed above. Especially when you are working alone as an online affiliate marketer.

Internet world changes very fast. But the core of the internet marketing never change. The best way to minimizes the challenges of the online business is keep learning and keep up-to-date! I strongly suggest not to work alone because you will get yourself burn out. Join a great internet marketing learning platform with genuine internet marketer community will be helpful.
