Okay, so you want to make money online so you decide you want to set up your own home business. Now you find out that there are several ways you can do this. You can set up your own business with your own products or services and earn 100% of the money. Or you can promote other peoples products and services through what’s known as affiliate sites and earn a percentage, known as a commission for the sales you make. Either way, you can earn good money from home. Now, it doesn’t matter which way you go, either building your own business or building your business using affiliate sites. In order to succeed in making money online you need to take your Business Seriously.
One of the best ways of making money online is using affiliate sites. Why? Because you can let someone else have the headache of dealing with the everyday tasks of running the business. Granted you will only earn a percentage of what you sell, but with the right affiliate program you can be making 1,000’s a month from home.
Now remember, this will become your own home business, so you will need to take a serious look at what is out there, and what you want to accomplish with your home business. Naturally, you will want to make enough money to hopefully replace your current income from your so called JOB. You will also want to be able to enjoy more time with your family and friends and doing the things in life you always wanted to do.
So, you search the web and you find a company that is offering you a great opportunity to make money from home promoting their products or services. You decide to sign up and you are given a website to promote their products or services and a members area where you can get banners and marketing materials to promote your new business. Now, I know that there are a lot of great programs out there, some are free to join and stay free at all times, some are free to join for a limited-time trial period and some require you to pay up front.
The best ones to join are the ones that allow you to sign up for a free trial period, and then after a short trial period, start paying a monthly fee. Why? Because this allows you to see if this business is right for you without paying out any money up front and losing it, if you decide this business is not what you are looking for. This type of business is also good because by paying a monthly fee, your new members that you bring in will be paying you a percentage of their monthly fee as your commission, earning you a residual income that will continue to grow each and every month.
Now you are probably thinking, require you to pay a small monthly fee? That’s right, you heard me, pay a small monthly fee. If you thought you were going to run a home business without spending any money your wrong. Remember, I said you need to be Serious about your home business. If you are not willing to pay for your home business, then stay where you are in your JOB, and forget about running your own home business. It takes money to make money and that’s how it is.
So you now have you own home business online, and you find out that in order to make money with it you need to promote it. So you go to your members area and you get some of the pre-made ads they offer and you start to promote your business. You continue to do this for several weeks and you see that nothing is happening. WHY?
You are doing everything they tell you to do, but nothings working. But are you doing everything?
Let’s look at what most people overlook. Let’s look at the time you are putting in.
Your typical day starts out going to work at your real JOB, you come home, have dinner, watch a little TV, or go to the mall, or visit some friends and then figure just before turning in, you will go online for an hour or two and do some advertising. On the weekend you have family commitments, such as cutting the grass, food shopping, working on the house, fixing the car, taking the kids to various sporting events if they are into that, family outings, such as birthdays, anniversaries, or whatever.
Where was your business in all that? You put in an hour or two at night, that’s 7 to 14 hours a week that you are devoting to your own business, and that’s if you do some work on it every night. Now I know some people will put in more time than that, but if you are not willing to put in all your free time, and more, especially in the beginning, then you will have a hard time at making any real money online.
What bugs me is this, I always hear that people don’t have the time or knowledge to market, (promote) their online business because they are too busy doing other things. If you don’t have the knowledge, then you need to take the time to learn how to market your business, in order to be able to be successful.
I know there is more to life other than sitting in front of a computer for 8+ hours a day, but after you get the business up and running (1 to 2 years tops), you’ll be able to cut down on your time at the computer, and start spending more quality time with your family, friends, and doing the things you want to do when you want to do them. Once you have your business set up, you need to learn how to promote your website in order to get people to see your website. Without visitors to your website, it doesn’t matter what you offer or sell you won’t make any money.
As I said in the beginning, you need to take your Business Seriously. You have in the palm of your hands with whatever business you decided to join, a real home business that has all the tax advantages as any other home business.
There are no employees to worry about.
No boss telling you what to do.
There is no product to inventory, package and ship out.
There is no need to call people to sell your business, which means you don’t need to be a salesperson. You can set your own hours, no one will care. You can take a day or two off, no one will care, your business will still be running 24/7. You see, you have a real business that is now YOURS, for only $xx.xx a month and you can generate $1,000.00 – $2,000.00 – $5,000.00 – $10,000.00 or more.
Where else can you have a business of your own for $xx.xx a month that can generate that kind of income for you?
You can’t. Try doing that in the off-line world.
So, here is my question to you.
If you were given a real home business that would cost you $xx.xx a month, and it was your own business, that with a little work over a period of 1 to 2 years that could generate $5,000 to $10,000 or more a month and would continue to grow even after you stop working it, would you be interested in learning everything you can to make it work, even if it meant sacrificing some of your time over the next year or two to do it?
Your answer hopefully would be YES.
So let’s take your home business, Seriously. We all get just one life to live, and the internet has opened new doors that will enable us to do what our parents could not do.
Take the time now to build your online business, so you can enjoy the fruits of your labors in just a few short years. Your online business has the potential of earning you 1000’s of dollars a month in less time, then you can imagine. Your parents had to work 20 years or more at a JOB that was not theirs just to earn a pension, if they were lucky enough to get one. Others worked until their last days and never really made enough to enjoy life.
If you are working a JOB now that pays you for your time, but the real income goes to someone else, then you are in the same position as your parents. Working to make someone else rich. Is that what you want? Take some time and think about what you want in life. If you want a better life and the time and money to enjoy it, now is the time. The internet has opened the doors for you to be able to do it, so grab the bull by the horns, tell your family and friends that you need to sacrifice some time for the next year or two to build your business, and just do it. If you really believe in your business and in yourself to be able to build and run your home business successfully, then family members and friends must be made aware that this is your life and your business and that they need to respect you for what you are doing.
The internet is still new to a lot of people and the thought of working from home with a computer is still uncommon. What you may need to do is to tell your friends and family members is that once your business is up and running, (if you are still in the process of building your business), is that you will be able to have more time and money than they will ever have with them working their JOB.
Be prepared though if you do this that some may laugh at you and think your crazy. If that is the case, brush it off and get to work to prove to them that they are wrong. You know you can do it, so get going and build your business and future the way you want.
