Owning an Internet Home Business is meant to be work. If you are thinking of getting into business on the Internet, forget the ads that you see that say you are going to make thousands of dollars, and never have to work to get it, and on top of that, never have to work again. Those are scams and unfortunately, the Internet is infested with them. Here are some keys you need to know, if you hope to own a successful Internet Home Business.
Tip Number 1
Decide if you want a hobby or a business. 99% of the web sites out there are either hobby sites, or people who will never make any money. Either way, the results are the same; these people are never going to make any money. What you need to do is this, decide what your Internet Home Business is going to be, and then act accordingly.
Tip Number 2
Once you have made the decision, hobby or business, and then act on that decision. If it’s a hobby, that’s great, have fun, do your thing and you are going to have fun, whatever happens. If you decided on a business, then its time to start the process of setting up your site with a view to getting traffic and when that traffic arrives, converting that traffic to paying customers.
Tip Number 3
You need to start the activities that will drive traffic to your business, as soon as possible. The activities to get traffic take a long time to materialize so the sooner you start the better. You need to educate yourself, or have some expert advice on this topic. Either way, spend at least 80% of your time in the first 6 months on driving traffic to your site and 20% of your time on your actual Internet Home Business. Getting traffic to your site is a crucial element in whether you are going to make it or not. The sooner you get the facts on this, find out if you are able to commit to the process, the better for you.
Tip Number 4
Have a plan and work that plan. You need to focus in on a few key priorities; activities that you have decided will give you the greatest possible chance at success. You need to spend some quality time to decide where you are going to invest the time you have available to spend on your business. You have to focus and focus on a very small list of things you are going to work on. My advice: that list should be no more than 3 tasks long.
Tip Number 5
Set a deadline. If your Internet Home Business is really going to be a business, you need to set a deadline when you are going to decide if it is going to do what you want it to do: make you money, or if you need to pull the plug. This is a tough thing to do, we all start operating a business with the hope and dreams that we are all going to make a lot of money. The reality is this: less than 2% of the businesses on the Internet ever make any money. The percentage of those businesses that ever make what could be considered big money is.001%, maybe even less than that. The odds are stacked way against anyone of us making money on the Internet.
