Don’t Rush Your Internet Marketing Business

It’s pretty important to follow the directions with most things. One example is if you were baking a cake and the recipe called for “bake at 350 for 1 hour”. It would be a real mess if you decided 30 minutes was long enough. Nothing like what you would expect the cake to look like. It would likely be gooey and flat or at least lopsided.

watch it!

The same principle should be applied to starting a home business online. No matter which strategies you employ it’s going to take time. This is the case even if you have ‘autopilot’ or automation. Whether or not you use paid advertising, it will take some time.

If you have foolishly gambled with your rent money or otherwise over-extended yourself financially, it is understandable you would now be in a rush to recover. If you are paying membership fees and have other monthly costs then you are anxious to see a return on your investment. This is one element that causes people to rush. Understandable but still not right.

It is still going to take as much time as it takes to start seeing tangible results. Nobody can say when it will start to produce income. Of course income is very much dependent on how much time and effort you are willing to invest regardless of spending money to promote your business or not.

Other factors that we do not control are also relevant, such as the economy, world affairs and even the weather. The employment picture is also relevant and this one can manifest itself either way; when people fear that they may be losing their job or have already lost one, some will feel compelled to save every last dime; others will start to build something on their own using whatever money they have.

Another factor is what people will do when they see your ads or emails. Most will do nothing except read. So you need more time to reach those that are interested enough to take action when they see your opportunity. There are many existing online businesses looking to expand their earnings potential with new programs.

There are always many new start-ups and people exploring the possibilities to make money online. So you are not alone. The point is that only a small percentage of the world population is serious about starting a business on the Internet. It is like finding the ‘needle in the haystack’ to find interested people. So remember this if you feel discouraged if you send 100s of emails and leads and other ads with no response. This does not mean stop.. It means keep trying.

The other really disastrous bad idea for a business start-up is to sit back and wait for the response you are expecting. Never just put out a bunch of ads and then kick back and wait for the money. You need to keep trying aggressively all the time. This is how you build and sustain momentum. Do not become complacent or ever feel you have done enough to promote your business and deserve a rest. You will never have done enough unless you are raking in millions.

Start-up Strategy for a Home Business: Diversify

Earning income online from home can have many options. Many people believe that ‘residual income’ is one of the smartest ways to go. This belief is based on the fact that when you make the sale once, it can represent a monthly income as well. Affiliate programs are a prime example. You are paid a commission when someone joins a program using your affiliate ID. (in your downline). Then each month when your downline pays their monthly fees, you get a percentage of that fee as a commission from the affiliate program. This is what they mean by ‘residual income’.

go with the flow

Another type of income you can add to the mix is OTO or ‘one time only’ income. This is where you would be selling a product one-time only. You earn your commission on that initial sale only. You can offer special deals for additional products at the point of sale. For example if you sold an electronic devices like a smart phone you could also offer a leather case for the phone. This is a convenience for the customer in that it is a ‘one stop shop’ and also increases your income for the sale.

‘Multiple streams of income’ describes a business that has more than one source of income. This could have a format where you might have one thing from each of the product types described above. Or you may wish to have a collection of affiliate programs, creating an opportunity for ‘multiple streams of income’ that way.

This concept is very smart in the event that one program or product is not doing so well. It’s okay because another one might be doing well and will cover the shortage in income from the slow program. Some programs base things on volume – the commissions may be small, but if you have volume, it won’t matter. For instance, while $5 is not much of a commission, if you can make 10 sales you have $50. If you are doing things right it is just as easy to make the sale 10 times as once.

It can take a while before you have time to do sufficient advertising that will generate substantial income. This may be discouraging in the beginning. You may be spending money on various services and are not realizing any return on your investment YET. You could structure your business in a way that you have some free programs and you can also discover ways to advertise them for free or extremely low cost. The object is to make a little money to cover expenses while you are building your home business online.

Programs like Clickbank and Amazon are two that are free to join and include most of what you need to start a business selling tangible items. There are a lot more details to consider than with an affiliate program. However something needs to give if you are going to make this work. You have to start somewhere. Don’t be afraid to make sacrifices in order to get started or maintain your business.
