The Challenges Of Being An Internet Marketing Coach


I feel that I’ve truly found my calling as an Internet marketing coach. Every day, I get to participate in assisting people to reach levels of financial freedom that they didn’t think were possible.

As a marketing coach, I get to follow my passion. I also get to follow my own schedule!

While the perks are tangible and definite for me, there are moments as a coach that are challenging.

Today I’d like to discuss the top 2 common challenges that I face as a marketing coach in the hopes that it can provide some insights for you and your Internet business.

Fear of Success

The idea of the fear of success may sound a little odd to you. The commonly held view is that an Internet business is all about the determined search for success.

However, it has been my experience that sometimes people are afraid to reach for those new heights in their Internet business. Every day they’re getting pounded with negative talk about the economy and the overall state of the world in general.

I’m not saying that the recession isn’t real. I know that many people are suffering right now due to the downturn in the economy. But what I am saying is to not let that scare you off from pursuing your financial freedom.

We receive so many message over the course of our lives that we’re not good enough, that we don’t deserve to be happy. We’re often told that our lot in life is to suffer, particularly in the financial arena. It may look like no amount of marketing can break through those emotions.

These feelings that we have are only too human! However, if and when they do happen to you, take note of them. And then bid them a sweet adieu! There quite frankly isn’t any space for fear of success with your Internet business.

You want to take advantage of your coach during those moments of doubt. I’ve certainly learned techniques to help push through my fear of success. The techniques that I’ve learned are probably some of the most important tools that I can give you as you build your own Internet business.

Unrealistic Expectations

Unrealistic expectations is another common challenge that I handle as a marketing coach.

I understand that people are chomping at the bit to change their financial destiny. I respect those feelings. I truly want to offer marketing support that allows people to have thriving Internet businesses.

Yet, there’s a certain type of person who wants all of their financial triumphs to happen in the blink of an eye. It’s difficult for them to truly accept that there aren’t any shortcuts. I don’t have any magical tricks up my coaching sleeve. Internet-marketing support isn’t a spell that I can cast at will.

No matter what kind of coaching and experience that I offer to this type of person, it is never fast enough. However, that same person is often not willing to put in the serious time and effort required to lift and sustain the business. I’ve learned from my mistakes, and I always want to coach my clients to avoid my pitfalls.

One of my goals is that while my clients have a burning desire to succeed at their Internet business, I also need to coach them to be patient and to be able to see the big picture.

Take Note and Make Changes

You may have seen elements of yourself in these 2 challenges that I have discussed. That’s fine. Identifying the challenges is the first step. What’s key is that you make the necessary changes so that you’re not a long-term example of these challenges. By making adjustments, you’ll be able to benefit a great deal more from your work with your Internet marketing coach.
