Are You Making This Crucial Mistake In Your Online Business?

Would you like to know why most online home businesses just don’t work?

Its funny seeing all these landing pages promising the end to your worries, these insane income posts people spam on Facebook & all this absolute nonsense.

It really doesn’t take a genius to figure out they are full of shit.

Its easy to go and photoshop an image or make a quick video with some quick sales pitch. Or find some deal that promises they will be given money everyday by just being there – do the bloody math people! Money isnt just given away for shits & giggles.

This may work for the really really low hanging fruit out there, the super easy pickings, but a good sustainable income is not made by these methods.


Now don’t get me wrong, there are some insane results all over the internet, but as a general rule these guys that are making the good coin don’t go spamming all over the place and big noting themselves. They do things different……

They have worked it out.

And it has something to do with this little piece of gold I read the other day.

Now as a part of my everyday activities I have a habit of reading (I suggest you do that as well, but thats for another article one day….)

I like to read books of personal development & growth & overall how to better myself

I read for at least 30 minutes a day.

I just finished reading “7 habits of Highly Effective People” by Steven Covey

I don’t know if you’ve ever read that book, however I highly recomend that you read this book, and read it again, and again….

– You can even get you hands on a copy by clicking this link here and getting it from Amazon

Anyway, I was reading a revised edition or something like that where Steven Covey was interviewed and they have the interview at the end of the book.

One of the question he was asked is:

How is technology going to change business in the future?

Part of his answer was this:

“High tech without high touch does not work, and the more influential technology becomes, the more important the human factor which controls the technology becomes.”

Steven Covey hits the nail on the head right there…

Having an internet business thinking that you won’t have to be part of it at all just doesn’t work.

You can’t just post stuff out there, spam all over the place and go into hiding, not being able to be contactable, never answering phone calls or messages or emails.

People need to know that they are doing business with a real person.

You still need to engage with people.

Look, the internet is great. Its  the best tool we have currently for reaching out to the masses.

But think about social media.

Think about why Facebook is so popular, its because you can connect with real people.

And it seems the more real you are, the more people love you.

I think that’s why Periscope is starting to be a real hot social platform – its because its 100% live and you can interact with people directly.  Check out my article I wrote on 5 Reasons to use Periscope to Build Your Business also make sure you follow me on Periscope @alexbender1980

Don’t get worried about being blasted all day over the phone, I’ll tell you a secret – people aren’t going to go out of their way to call up a stranger just to annoy the hell out of you (well, most of the time….).  The people that will take the time to actually connect with you are the people you want to do business with & they are seeing if they want to do business with you.

When I get a new lead, my first email they get is saying please reach out to me on Facebook, or Skype, reply to me with Email or a phone call.

I often get phone calls from people giving me a quick email or phone call, just to make sure I’m a real person before they decide to join my team or do business with me.

Now it all depends on my situation is, whether I’m in transit, or whatever country I am in at the time as to how I can be contacted however you can be sure that I will reply to you.

That being said, I challenge you to test me on this……

As far as I’m concerned, that’s what its all about, making sure someone is there.

  • BOOM!! I totally Feel You on this!! Its So important to really develop ourselves so We don’t fall for the trap of attempting to Market in that way! People Join People Noy Products. Authenticity is So Important!

    • Alex Bender

      Exactly Tara, be 100% authentic.
      I actually got a message on LinkedIn today saying “..always refreshing to read well written/truthful articles that are not just spat out from a book but from someone’s personal view”
      I had a great week this week, but this message really finished the weekend on a great note!.

      • Indeed! I think most people Just forget People. You know. we gotta remember People 🙂

  • So true! Thank you for sharing! Join the awesome family!

    • Alex Bender

      Ha Ha great to be part of this awesome family we are in Keri. Thanks for dropping by.

  • Thanks for the book tip, I put it in my wish list so I won’t forget. I’ll also check out your blog post about Periscope. I just recently discovered it.
    And as to your questions if those big money images work on Facebook? Probably, otherwise they wouldn’t do it. There are always people who fall for the easy way out. Pay a lot of money to only find out they have to learn eventually the ropes 🙂

    • Alex Bender

      Yeah i spose Xarah that it may work, but like i said in the post it picks up the super low hanging fruit

  • Hey Alex awesome I agree with you, the more high tech technology becomes the more important it is the human touch. Yeah it’s all about connecting with people and providing real value. Thanks for sharing!

    • Alex Bender

      Hey Vitaliy, Well my friend I know you are the king at connecting with people, you actually were part of the inspiration for this post.
      Thanks for stopping by my friend.

  • Alex you are so spot on no that’s something I found out me off, people who flash money and claim to be making a killing with nothing else to back it up. See success levels clues, one doesn’t have to shout it out loud, it’s self showing. And being present as a human being is important in getting people to come to you. I do the same and it’s amazing how many people actually call…very few. See people are scared of the phone whether to call or be called… I am not and thats why results come to those that are bold

    • Alex Bender

      Well Julie you are a prime example of not bignoting yourself & just getting on with your business – I know you’re successful but hardly ever do I see an income claim or anything, you just meake me want to go on holidays with you by posting pis of yourself all over the world.

  • Hi Alex, Good post: i like that quote from Steven Covey. I remember reading his book many years ago, but not since then. Yes, this authenticity thing is so important. We like to know we are just dealing with automatons. Thanks.

    • Alex Bender

      I suggest you read it again…. and again… its a cracker of a book

  • thanks alex, so many people will benefit from this

  • Periscope is brilliant when it comes to building your own audience for free…Great post!

  • BAMM! I love your direct approach. People do have to wake up and realize that there is no magic button on the keyboard that fills up the keyboard. Business is built on work and you do the work up front before you get to reap the rewards. Thanks for sharing.

    • Alex Bender

      Glad you liked it David. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your thoughts

  • This is a really interesting and cool post Alex. I like the approach you put out here. The author makes an excellent point — in essence — the more we become “technologized,” the more personal and human we need to be. So true. Great post — thank you.
