In this economy, with lay–offs, unemployment, or wanting to add more income to make ends meet, many people have turned to starting a business in Internet Marketing or Home Based Business to solve their cash flow problems.
Most of us begin by telling our family and friends about our new business. We listen to them for words of encouragement, excitement and enthusiasm; only to hear them say to you: “Have a backup plan”; or “Find a job in the meantime”, or “Don’t quit your job before you start making money.”
I was in the store the other day and I overheard this lady talking to someone on her cell phone. She told the person that she could not put all her hopes into one basket. As I was walking down the aisle, I thought: What a horrible thing to say! Why can’t you?
How Do You Choose An Internet Marketing Business?
On your search you will find that there are 1000’s upon 1000’s of Internet Marketing Opportunities available to you. Consider the following steps before making the decision to join an internet marketing business:
Make a list of things that you are interested in. Look for Internet Marketing Opportunities that spark your interest.
Decide if you want to market your business online, offline, or both.
Is the business opportunity for a product, service, or system?
How much is the investment that you have to make to get started and is there a monthly membership fee?
How do you get paid and what is the compensation plan?
What type of training is provided to you to attract leads to your business?
Advertising–determine how you will advertise your new online marketing business: Free, On a Budget, or Unlimited Resources.
Your Internet Marketing Business Plan
Even if you have not decided on an Internet Marketing Opportunity, making a business plan is important to accomplishing your goals.
Determine how many hours a day you have available to build your Internet Marketing Business.
Divide the time you have available per week into the following categories: training, advertising, social networking, maintaining a blog, research, writing articles, responding and training your leads, and email.
Set-up a calendar of 5 tasks or goals each day–but remain flexible and if any tasks are not completed, put them at the top of the list for the following day.
Above all, remain positive and remember to take “Me Time”: this is the time before, during, and after your work day.
Walk away from the computer and take the time to exercise, yoga, meditation, spending time with family and friends, or just relaxing.
How Can You Tell If The Internet Marketing Business Opportunity is Legitimate or a Scam?
The simple definition of Legitimate is something that is lawful, proper, and fitting. The flip side is Scam which is an attempt to defraud a person or group by gaining their confidence. Before I go any further, I want the readers of this article to remember: “You are the investor in the business. You have complete control to proceed or decline the offer to join any Internet Marketing Business.”
There may be scams out there, but I have not come across any scams. Many feel that they have been scammed because they have not made the profits as expected. Any internet marketing business that you choose can become successful with step–by–step training.
Many business opportunities begin by showing the profits of other successful entrepreneurs with 5, 6, or 7 figure incomes a month. When you view these entrepreneurs sharing their information, it only shows you that anyone can become successful by utilizing their training experiences.
Training is the single most important aspect of becoming successful in any internet marketing business.
