Realize Your Dream – Start Your Own Business Online

It would be nice if we could merely imagine or dream something and it would come true. While there is a remote possibility, it would usually require you to take action to make it happen. Some dreams start when we are children as far as what we want to be when we grow up. For most people this will change many times as we mature, and quite possibly we will end up in a career that we never imagined. Of course there are those few that are just ‘born to be’ whatever it is and throughout their life they progress along the path to develop the idea, but they are the exception.

When it comes to starting your own business online, it is hard to say which direction the idea will come to mind from. You may decide to start a business and then start planning what that business will be. Or you may know exactly what you want to do to create a business. In either case it will take some brain-storming and determining what all will be involved from the inception to the launch.

One of the wisest things ever said and that you should keep in mind in this regard is it is much easier to find the market than it is to find a product. To explain, finding the market is learning what it is that people want – what they are buying, and then get that and provide it to them; versus getting attached to a product that you like and then trying to convince others to buy it. Can you see the difference in the dynamic here? It’s about them seeking you out because you have what they are looking for, as opposed to you chasing people down. It’s much better to be in the position of power whenever possible.

So if it turns out that what you want to sell and what the market wants are the same thing, that is a plus. Now however you must consider your competition and while you may agree it is completely tacky to copy somebody, it would help if you did some research on what they are doing to promote the product. Note the way they present it both visually and textually, their prices, any special deals, etc. It would also be very helpful to read any reviews you can find.

You might want to consider including something in your strategy that will make you stand out from them. This can be your own special deals and bonuses. You might find for example that their graphics are not very exciting and determine to use brighter colors; you might find their site difficult to navigate, and therefore create a site map or menu system that will help people use your site. Whatever you do it will help you to ‘stand out from the pack’ by always being creative in your approach.

Are You Sure You Really Want an Internet Marketing Home Business?

It’s so weird how some people look at Internet home business as so one-dimensional. They may put out a little effort to join something, and go through a half-hearted motion to show a little interest; but that only goes just that far. No matter how much they receive to help them build a business, the whole ‘journey falls off right there where the help ends.

There may not be any further progress that would be considered a serious attempt to succeed in business beyond that juncture. You see they may have lost interest just by the mere mention of the concept of ‘w-o-r-k’! With the Internet it should be instant. It should be magical. The ‘money grows on trees’ don’t you know? Or another possibility is that they just do not relate to working on their own. That is they need to be supervised.

There are however with all due respect many who really do try – even if only for a while, they give it the ‘old college try’. But then they roundly reject the whole idea and assume there is some problem with the business or service if they do not see evidence within a set time-period where usually the main consideration beyond the necessary work is that they just don’t want to pay the monthly fee again.

Some drop in and kick the tires, then quit; and then drop back in and quit again – and it is ok to quit as long as you try again. It’s really a true statement, ‘you can’t fail unless you quit’. You can’t fail as long as you keep trying – as long as you do not ‘accept defeat’.

It is no sin that not everyone can do two main things that seem contrary to the usual working class mindset. #1 Work without being paid, even if working for themselves; #2 Continue to work without evidence of any progress (i.e., walking in faith = believing in the unseen). You have to determine early on if you might not be able to do that.

Otherwise it may be best just to get a second job or part-time job or some way to make money that doesn’t involve working for yourself (and not getting paid right away or even for sure). The perfect time to start a business is while you are working at least part-time or have some way to support yourself while you develop your business.

Besides that all being a real challenge for most people, people really do need to make money and that is why they are starting a business. When they see that it will take time, effort and likely at least some money, they often balk. They really can’t afford this scenario and maybe they didn’t realize that until they saw what would be involved in developing a real business.

People need to really have self-confidence for many reasons but particularly in business, because for one thing, they will have to constantly justify what they are doing on the Internet hour after day. They will even ask themselves at times, as well as to need to answer to their significant others’ objections. It would be much better if they had support particularly at a time like this.

However, it’s not hard to understand how someone might really believe you are spinning your wheels and being played for a fool if they can only relate to having a job and working a specific period of time for a specific amount of money – no more and no less. If they see work and no guaranteed return on investment, then it doesn’t ‘compute’ to them.

Not everyone has the ‘entrepreneurial’ spirit – and they should probably not try to start a business at least on the usual ‘shoestring’ budget. No crime in that either.

Are you Being Realistic about Starting an Online Business?

So many people think they want to start a business and then change their mind when they find out that a real, legitimate business requires much learning, working and allowing enough time for things to develop after they implement them. You know, logic.

work to win

There is really no magic here or instant riches for anybody. When advertisements appear to say otherwise, people really need to get real and read between the lines. It is not that the ‘hype’ is necessarily a lie – It is just telling us that it is POSSIBLE to earn money “quickly”.

Perhaps there are proven examples of people who have ‘made a killing’; and others who are just enjoying a nice supplemental income. Someday they may actually build the business up to the point where they can quit their day job and just work from home.

So let’s qualify the word ‘quickly’. It is subjective what ‘quickly’ means to different people – but in this context quickly when compared to starting a business offline is absolutely true – Just like everything else on the Internet, it’s a lot faster than offline to deliver messages, find information, process transactions, etc.

You really can be in business in 24-hours by joining an affiliate program. For example, where everything is done for you and all you need to do is start advertising and marketing the product or service using the resources the program provides to you. They will handle your sales transactions and even service for your customers. Then they will pay you a commission.

However although it is still POSSIBLE it is not likely you will be earning money within 24-hours. So you see they didn’t lie but if you just stop and think about it, if it was possible to be a millionaire within 24-hours then why wouldn’t we all be millionaires? What it actually means is within 24-hours you can START the process.

It’s funny because some people liken starting an Internet home business to the lottery rather than to a job or business – That is the only way to make money instantly is to win the lottery – It’s a fantasy and we won’t mention the very tiny chance of winning there. Your chance of winning the lottery on a single ticket is one in 175 million. That seems tiny, and it is.

It is actually incredible how many people think that the results of an Internet business should be IMMEDIATE! Or else it must be bogus! We are done! No magic here (either), let’s move along now and find the next shiny object! Guess what? They usually pronounce the whole Internet a sham and don’t trust anybody or anything they see. All because they don’t really want to work and don’t realize that everything is a gamble. However you will hedge your bets if you are willing to actually work at developing your business seriously.
