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.

Affiliate Marketing – No Program Works Unless We Make it Work

There is no program that does magic tricks or makes people wealthy unless THEY seriously work at it. When you see words used like ‘easy’ or ‘fast’ you must be logical about these because both are subjective – What you think is easy others may think is hard – or what you call fast others may think is slow.

it only works if you do

Affiliate marketing programs do a lot to help you get started and most provide several different kinds of resources toward that end. However nobody has the responsibility to make it work for you except YOU! Whether or not the program ‘works’ for you depends on how much effort over time you are willing to invest. Nobody can guarantee your success. Success is about what YOU do with everything over time to develop your business!

If you have some money you can pay for services to help you with the work in building an affiliate marketing business from home online. If not then you need to do your own marketing and advertising. You will generally find that using the Internet is 10 times cheaper, faster and easier than anything you can do offline – for example you don’t need supplies or equipment like paper, ink, postage, or printers to send sales advertising messages to your prospects.

In either case you would however, need a mechanism to capture leads online to send your messages to and/or you can pay for list building services. In general a combination of both usually works best as capturing leads can take a long time, although they are typically more interested than those on a purchased list of ‘leads’. The list of course is much faster and easier if you have some money to invest.

Although working from home online is a great deal more enjoyable just in that you make your own rules about what time you work, how long you work and even how you do things, it is still, none the less, work. Not sure really how people get the impression that they can become wealthy by osmosis or just by joining a program that somebody else earned substantial income from. Certainly that points to the possibility existing, in that someone more or less just like you succeeded – and so it follows that you can do the same! (That is if you work as much and as long as they did).

There are usually no excuses to fail – It is really pretty simple – If you want to earn money, you need to do the work and spend the time. In fact you have to remain very engaged in your business at all times. If you slack off in your efforts or sit back resting on your laurels and wait, you may wait a very long time for nothing to ever happen. You and you alone are responsible for either your own success or your own failure. Just like real life!

Your Home Business – Work Smarter

It is a real good idea to become an affiliate of the programs that you use for advertising and marketing. No matter what your main business might be, it is always wise to add multiple streams of income. Selling the programs you are using is a natural. It is direct and not only financially but psychologically you will like the idea of paying for your own services straight from the commissions.Your Home Business – Work Smarter

work smarter not harder

If you devote some time and energy to promoting these services to your downline in your main programs, then it is doubly good as there is your ready-made market. It is all a neatly tied package that ends up with less money seemingly going out of your pocket to run your business. Further it is a natural to sell services or products to people who you know need them for their business. It is always good to make natural connections as things flow more gracefully.

Building relationships is important and helping people is a wonderful thing. If you can offer advice and information to your prospects and customers that will assist them in building their own businesses, it can be ‘clear sailing’ for you down the line. You can speak with confidence about the services as you have actually used them yourself, know how they work and recommend them. There is nothing forced or artificial about what you are saying.

Hopefully you can be the type of sponsor who guides and coaches your customers both before and after the primary sale; and again it is very natural for you to advise them on what you know will help them to achieve their goals. There is nothing that speaks louder than direct experience. However if you are also new to the business, it may take you a while to reach a place where you can actually say you have seen the results.

This is okay and there are always ways you can be perfectly honest about this if you use actual reviews and information from the site, quoting people, studies or research and actual statistics. You could actually say that you are using the product or service yourself and detail the reasons that compelled you to try it, without saying you know for sure it works from first-hand experience.

Again, if you are building a relationship of trust they will appreciate the advice of a friend, and may be willing to take a chance because you are and they respect you. In any case people always appreciate well-meaning advice and just the fact that you would take the time to try to help them along the way. Certainly they are more likely to follow your recommendations than a total stranger that sends them an offer out of nowhere.
