The Truth About Online Business
Online Business is not a difficult thing to do, and really anybody can
do it, but if you don't know how, then regardless of the nature of the
business, it will be hard for you to achieve your goals even if you
have the magical product or service. I am sure that many try to answer
the "how" question by bombarding you with many e-mail messages telling
you all different sorts of ways to market or advertise online, and each
way is said to be the best way that can generate traffic, sales,
But talking about "how" to promote or market your online business means
that we are jumping too many steps ahead. Before the "how," there is a
"what" that we need to answer. You need to assess yourself first and
not the idea or opportunity. So before venturing into the ins and outs
of internet marketing, you should first venture into knowing "what" are
your own beliefs and expectations.
If you are interested and serious about establishing a home based
business and to enable you to proceed on solid grounds we need to erase
some false perceptions and agree about few others regarding the nature
of home based business or online business. The points that we need to
clear out are as follows:
is no such thing called a get rich quick program. The concept simply
does not exist. When you read "Start earning now," it really means that
you can start your business now, but the money will not come in "NOW."
is no program that will give us $5000 a month within six months of
starting the business. Some people might be able to achieve that, but
that is not a general rule that we can depend on.
is no business that does not require effort. At least in the building
stage. There is a lot to learn, read and research.
is no business that does not require time. You should be prepared to
spare at least 2-3 hours a day for your business, and with these 2-3
hours don't expect miracles. This means that you are really taking your
time and the business will see results any time soon. Still you will
need to know that with this amount of time you will be establishing
yourself as an internet marketer but at a slow pace.
is no business that does not require money. Seriously speaking, online
business and home based business in general is by nature a low
investment industry. Still low investment does not mean for free. You
will need to budget $300 - $500 a month to be able to work in this
industry, and do not believe anybody who tells you otherwise.
The initial investment might be $100 or even less, but what about all
the marketing activities and the advertising that you will need to do.
This requires money, and only if you were able to budget for the above
amounts you will be able to get your business off the ground.
Even if you are not going to use paid advertising and you will only use
free methods – which are very effective by the way
– you will need to buy software programs that will enable you
to use your limited 2-3 hours efficiently and effectively.
will need to expect to spend the above amounts for several months
before expecting any kind of revenue. Don't forget that you will have
to walk through the learning curve first before any revenue is expected
let alone profit.
My genuine advice to you would be not to enter into any online business
idea or venture if you are not able to meet the above requirements and
