Is starting a Online Business difficult? Not really. With a computer and high speed Internet access, the potential for anyone to make money online is virtually limitless. In fact it depends on what type of income you really want to generate. There are many who are just looking for some extra income and while others would like to make it a full time employment from the comfort of their home. What makes it difficult for someone to take that step forward and start? Here are some questions people have asked me and these should not put you down from starting a home based business.
1. Do I have to be a salesperson?
No not at all. The time has changed and on the internet sales pitch work very rarely now-a-days. The business on the internet has taken a different turn now. People will buy from you if they KNOW, LIKE and TRUST you. This follows a principle of attraction marketing. People are attracted towards you because you provide them value and they start liking and trusting you. You prove yourself to be a leader in your field and that is what in the long run generates a potential residual income for you. You have to think of your business as a long term investment.
2. What value can I provide or?
Well, I presume you do possess some qualities. Look into yourself. I am sure you have achieved professional experience, you must have some hobbies that you can share and communicate to your readers. There is a vast variety of opportunities on the internet and things that you can promote or sell. For example, you love gardening, don’t you think you could position yourself as a leader in the field of gardening and give them your valuable knowledge in gardening. There are a lot of products you can get from places like clickbank, paydotcom which you can be an affiliate and earn money from it.
There are many network marketing companies who provide valuable products to sell. Do some research on the internet and you may find the product which is of your taste and for which you will be able to bring value to your customers.
3. How do I promote?
That question is tricky but not hard to achieve. There are hundreds of ways of promoting your products or your website and attract visitors and make tons of money online. Some apply free traffic generations techniques like article marketing, social marketing, forum marketing…, which is a bit slower but very effective if you apply consistently while others use paid traffic generation techniques which can bring you rapid results. But if you are new to the internet then free methods can bring you good results and I would advice you to avoid the paid techniques as a mistake could be very costly for you.
4. How much time do I have to spend to earn money?
Honestly, it depends totally on your time availability. You have to find time for your online business. You could spend 2 hours a day and earn a decent income on the internet but to do that you need to follow a system and be consistent on a daily basis. Think of your business as a business and not as a hobby. Don’t fall into the get rich quick scams. I am a believer in the slow and steady wins the race and if you keep trying I am sure you can succeed.
5. I am not Internet Savvy?
Everybody is a beginner. It is not hard there are many companies out there who teach you how to market and brand yourself on the internet. If you want to really succeed on the internet, then you need to have some fundamental training and for that you have to spend some money. Personal development is very important. Imagine how many years would a doctor, an engineer or an accountant, have to study before they can practice their profession. Online business is the same, you don’t have to spend years but you do need some basic training to get yourself up and running.
If you’re new to being an entrepreneur, you probably need training. Look for a company that offers the tools and training you need in order to succeed. The type of training you receive can encompass everything from weekly conference calls or webinars (Internet-based seminars), to one-on-one coaching from your upline, to training manuals and other written materials.
