Many Fail To Make Money Online – The Real Reason

There’s many stories of professionals who forsake their day jobs in order to start their own businesses. Sadly though, there are also many people who are unable to make their dreams a reality. Even though they may try hard, their efforts do not result in sufficient income even to cover their living expenses.

To avoid complete financial ruination, these folks must accept the fact that they have no choice at the moment but to put their dreams aside and find another job to support themselves. Don’t always assume that this is due to the fact that available opportunities are not profitable enough for any sustained success. This scenario is not the real reason people fail to make money online.

This problem usually starts with a failure to have a business plan. Online entrepreneurs know that there are many ways to promote product ideas on the Web. However, they do not have a clear picture of what products have a market and who that market is that they need to reach. Instead of going out on a limb, a solid, stable foundation should be created from these criteria before you begin.

An appropriate work schedule is also key. Although if you are self-employed you can work whatever hours you prefer, you still need to work consistently and more or less frequently. Home business workers are so relieved to be away from the rut of their day jobs, that they try to bypass creating any structured plans for themselves.

If you are investing in products or ideas that do not create adequate excitement, that is a common mistake as well. When a targeted market does not respond to what a company has to offer, whatever relevance these products had originally, just keep disintegrating.

Nearly all start-up costs will be considered as a loss initially. Money is going out of your pocket for development but so far nothing is coming back to you. This is one big reason to avoid becoming involved with a company that requires you to purchase inventory either for potential customers or yourself. This is how people wind up in debt after trying unsuccessfully to start a home business.

Trying to understanding the real reasons many people fail to generate income online will help you to be more successful in your own efforts. Creating a feasible business plan, adopting a dedicated work schedule and choosing the right products, services and information will make a big difference. If you target an active and interested market it is possible for people to accomplish their goals.

Home Business – Go Forth and Prosper

With your own home business, you can go forth and prosper no matter what happens on the surface. Unlike a day job where they may eliminate your position, you are not ‘up a creek without a paddle’. With your own business, especially if you have chosen to follow the ‘multiple streams of income’ strategy, you can just choose a new opportunity to replace one that has been lost.


keep going forth
Particularly with the ‘affiliate marketing ‘program model you do not need to miss a beat. Everything to get started is provided to you as part of the membership. It would be good though if you had done a little research previously so that you do have some information about your new opportunity.

There is certainly no rush that would make it necessary to go into something without knowing anything about the company, principals, reputation and product. So if you haven’t so far done this, you really should run a few queries at Google.com on possible business opportunities.

Because of the way things are always changing online you should be prepared and well-informed especially about the programs/products you already have and certainly before you take action to add another business opportunity.

There are some pretty strange situations that may arise and which may impact you. You need to ‘watch’ to see something coming down before it reaches crisis proportions (especially if you have money you need to recover if the company tanks).

Be sure to read the details – the real story and not just rumors and innuendos. In almost every case it is not the program or principal who has caused the trouble. Seriously, they are usually paying as agreed and both the program and the members are doing great.

Honestly in 99.9% of the problems it is a 3rd party that is the cause of the problem. It can even be the government or bank that confiscates the funds while they ‘investigate’ their accusations (and usually nobody ever sees their money as it is spent on legal fees, court costs, etc.)

Recently a very good company has imploded and then additionally been the victim of multiple scams to ‘straighten’ the issues out for them. Really sad what bottom-feeders will do even to people already being victimized (the company and members).

So the point is don’t rush to judgement, but do pay attention and try to get out with your assets if you can, ASAP. You are not the captain in this case, so no reason for members to go down with the ship although many times there is nothing anybody can do to avoid it.

Find Another Way if You Have to but Keep Moving

What can we do when things just seem to turn against us? It definitely isn’t lay down and die and accept that we are in ruination. If we are sick we go to the doctor and try to find a cure. If we are broke we try to find more income. Sometimes that takes a while and a bit of creativity.

In the meantime though, we can’t keep sinking deeper until things change. We have to take some kind of action. If there is nothing you can do at this moment, and want to keep your good credit rating and honor your contracts with vendors, you may try to reduce expenses.

They seriously are not as ‘hard-nosed’ as you probably imagine. They really want to keep your business and appreciate that you are not just kicking them to the curb. So ask for the Loyalty department or even ask for the department where you cancel and of course don’t, but just let them talk you out of it. It may represent only $5 to $25 here and there for a few months, but it all adds up at the end of the day.

Just saying – do you need the latest, greatest television programs on your cable if you don’t think you can pay your rent? Of course you don’t. Could you take a 500 MB reduction in speed on the Internet if it saved you a few dollars? Of course you could (*if it is decent in the first place).

There is a lot to be said about perception and feelings. You know it may be after you make a bunch of phone calls in desperation you only saved a total $50 a month. That doesn’t help much with the rent but you know what? You will feel better – you will feel like you are going to work it out and $50 might pay the utility bill or something necessary. They will still get their pound of flesh, but you will feel like you are a valued customer because someone negotiated with you and treated you kindly when you were feeling like dirt.

This of course brings us to a good reason to start an online home business right now. Make your computer pay you; make your utilities and your rent pay you back. If you have a business running at home you will see how they will pay you back a percentage of what you spend for them. Check out the US Government (IRS.gov) website on small businesses and see all the expenses you might deduct if you have a business in your home. This is not even to mention how you might have a little savings account generated by your home business to get you through tough times.
