Online Entrepreneur Basics

Today more and more often we hear about the overnight riches being made online. However when attempting to locate opportunities you can find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer number of sites offering you the chance to make incredible profits without ever leaving your home. Let’s face the facts, anyone who would not be intrigued by these offers, in my humble opinion are either not being honest or just don’t understand the incredible potential an internet business can offer.

What can be most discouraging is the number of “offer in your face” type advertising that we see a lot of in the work at home category. This is in no way a new concept, just take a look at your local newspaper in the automotive section, every dealer within 200 miles is stating a better deal than the next just to get you in the door. The same holds true on the internet, however if you take your time and research the type of business that most interests you, there is no doubt that your odds for success will greatly improve.

You see, the whole point here is that many of the offers found on the internet do consist of quality information that can get a small home based business up and running in no time. Those individuals who offer such opportunities basically have no choice but to advertise there maximum profit potential just to get a shot at the sale and stand out in the crowd. I'm not saying that all of the work at home programs sold online today are right for you. The fact is what works for you might not work for someone else and vice versa. I myself bought several online work at home courses, it was a matter of learning everything I could and putting it all together in to something that was right for me.

I would like to share with you the 5 basic steps I found to be helpful when I started out…

1) Get organized, dedicate a place in your home that will become your working environment. A spare bedroom works great, but if this is not an option just dedicate a section of your apartment or home, away from distractions. Remember Rome wasn’t built in a day, make the best of what you have, improvements can be made later.

2) Dedicate yourself to your new business. Remember this is your business it’s up to you to stay focused and on track. It might sound a little silly but I use to pretend I still had a boss and would ask myself what would happen if he or she walked in right now. It did keep me on track and got me in to the right mindset.

3) Let others know your work schedule and that you are not to be bothered during these times. Letting in distraction can be the start of bad habits, as you gain experience and confidence with your business your freedom will grow.

4) Set goals for your business. Following a business plan will help you track the progress you are making and where improvement is needed.
Example: select a realistic date on a calendar and hold yourself to it; completion of a certain task or your company’s first profit, it’s up to you.

5) “Stay Positive”. This is in my opinion the most important and sometimes most difficult. All I can say is try to find the positive in whatever is happening. I would get excited when I saw that I had made X amount of dollars online only to realize my advertising costs were double that. I would try to keep motivated by telling myself I had learned how to make sales, now I just have to fine tune the advertising. This is all part of the up’s and down’s of getting your business off the ground. Once you succeed, it’s one of life’s most rewarding experiences. I hope you found this information useful, good luck with all your future endeavors.

 


Entrepreneur mindset

I would like to begin the task of breaking down the barriers that hinder our own success. We have all been through the basics of life and what it takes to succeed in the world. Unfortunately for most of us that meant this basic mentality: we grow up , we acquire our first job and focus on moving up within that company and or changing employers to better our income along the way, using and applying the skills we have learned. This is what I consider to be the first barrier, one must overcome this as well as other instinctive (first response) barriers in order to achieve the success they desire.

This mentality is not necessarily a bad thing, for some are quite happy to go through life being an employee. For others they follow the same path but are not as satisfied with the outcome. These are the individuals that always dreamed of something more but never acted on their true feelings. This also spans back to the first barrier mentioned in the beginning of the article. To achieve independent success one must travel outside their individual comfort zone and break free of some instinctive barriers we learn growing up. We all have a bad habit of becoming complacent when it comes to employment, we get too comfortable, we get use to that regular pay check and the thought of change also brings out the fear of failure. This is the comfort zone that is difficult to break free of.

Along the way we don’t stop to consider the possibilities we can create for ourselves. Today the cost of opening a small home based business is extremely modest in comparison to years past. The financial risks have also been decreased significantly. The cost of a franchise for instance in most cases is a make or break situation for the average person. Let’s face it who has that kind of money to risk and frankly I never liked the idea of having all my eggs in one basket. The internet has revolutionized the entire work at home industry, it commands a global reach to its users. Global reach means global sales opportunities for anyone willing to learn and put fourth the effort. Owning an internet business is really no different than a brick & mortar business except when it comes to the area in which it can service. There are millions of internet users world wide (if you’re reading this your one of them) it makes you no different than me or your neighbor down the street or the men or women in the next state or country. The fact is that the potential is absolutely huge and will only continue to increase as the next generation grows up never knowing a world without the internet.


When I first started out I was not by any means a computer genius nor do I make that claim now, all I had was a dream to work at home, gain financial independence and spend that ever so precious quality time with my family. Prior to my first child I was caught where many of you are now. I was working a 70-80 hour work week as a manager of an automotive dealership. The money was good and a sparkling new car in the driveway was nothing to complain about. I struggled with the idea of letting it all go to try making it on my own. I quit my job and walked out with only a dream and a willingness to learn. In retrospect I would highly recommend getting your business off the ground prior to leaving your current job. I did experience the good the bad and the ugly when I first started out, but what business owner wouldn’t have a story or two to tell. There is certainly plenty of quality information and courses available on the internet today, the trick is finding something that interests you. Always remember if you enjoy what you do you will never work a day in your life. I hope, if nothing else this article will encourage you to re-evaluate your current situation and help you start down the path of unlocking your true potential. The best of luck with all your future endeavors.


Starting an internet business

Many people who have thought about starting their own internet business don’t pursue it, this is due to the fact that many people believe that that the opportunity to open a successful internet business has already passed them by. This could not be further from the truth, always remember that www stands for world wide web, what does this mean to you, it means that the global reach the internet provides is almost difficult to comprehend.

It’s estimated that by the year 2010 sales generated on the net will surpass 300 billion does that sound like a market that’s ship has already sailed, I think not! The tools that are available to anyone with an internet connection are truly outstanding. They can take a complete novice and completely change how they view the internet, taking it from a source of entertainment to a source of income most of us have never dreamed of.

When you surf the net do you come across a lot of ads for various products or services? Even if you’re not the type of person who frequently makes purchases from the web keep in mind that these ads would not exist if someone wasn’t making money. So why not you? Did you know that you can get your own website up and running in just a few short days at a cost of less then $50 imagine having an overhead like that to get your business started not as risky as one might think.

The number of products available for one to sell is almost limitless you don’t even need your own products you can make a great living just collecting commission for selling someone else’s products. Your web site will be running 24 hours a day 7 days a week earning you money even while your asleep.

I wrote this article in hope of inspiring anyone who reads it that has considered opening an online business to stop second guessing themselves and start making there goal of having an online business a reality.A few basics you should consider, Rome wasn’t built in a day any new business takes time and effort, make sure you will be able to balance your financial situation while your business is growing. A good plan and goal setting makes all the difference. In most cases you will be able to get your business off the ground well before you have to make any decision about leaving your current job (another huge advantage of online business)

The time to act is now the internet has really only been mainstream now for roughly 10 years and it’s opportunities will continue to grow, it’s up to you whether you will be on the ship or not but I can assure you it hasn’t sailed yet! To all your success with all future endeavors.


8 Secrets To Successfully Work At home

What I'm about to reveal to you are 8 proven secret strategies, that will help you accomplish positive results with the time you spend on your home business.

Ready?

1. Imagine yourself as the CEO of a major corporation.

This technique will put you in the proper frame of mind, to envision yourself as your own boss, and that you are in complete control of your business. As the CEO of your corporation, it is very crucial that you project where your business will spiral towards in the next 5 years. Remember A DREAM written down with a date becomes a GOAL. A goal broken down becomes a PLAN.. A plan backed by ACTION makes your dream come true.. From The Millionaire Mentor by Greg S. Reid

Therefore, you need to...

2. Set Specific Goals "Goals are like train tracks." They keep you moving forward in the direction you want to go. -Vicky Smith. When setting proper goals you need to exercise 2 simple strategies: First and foremost, *Set Your Long Term Goals* (a.k.a. Dreams) The bottom line is this, if you want to head in the right direction, than you must know where you want to be in 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, even 5 years from now. This technique is amazingly effective when you type your goals down, and print them out. (Be sure you do it, I'll tell you why later.) Secondly, you must always set and accomplish daily goals, so that you will achieve your long term dreams (goals). When you know where you want to be and where you are headed, than you will know exactly what you need to do to get there. This will definitely get the ball rolling for you to set your daily goals.

3. Set up a *daily* To-Do Lists

Now that you have distinguished your daily goals, the easiest way to accomplish them is by working on a priority basis always working on the most important task first. Design your daily to-do list at the end of your work day, so you know exactly what you need to do when you wake up in the morning. Make your daily tasks realistic, and be sure that they are accomplished. Think of each task you accomplish as a stepping stone towards your dreams. The key here is for you to go to bed at night without having any regrets, and knowing that you have achieved everything you could that day. Here's a neat trick: Use Microsoft Outlook's task manager to prioritize your daily To-Do list. Outlook will let you manage your tasks on a per hour basis. It is very crucial to avoid procrastination if you plan on getting where you want to be in 5 years. Here's the best part: Outlook will keep reminding you, if your tasks have not been accomplished. This gives you absolutely no excuses not to work. Which brings me to my next point…

4. Devote a *specific amount* of hours each and every day...

..to work on your business. To avoid getting side tracked, DO NOT surf the net, close your instant messenger conversations during this period of time. The more side tracked you become, the further away you will be from your dreams.

5. Develop a positive routine

Research proves that eating breakfast every morning, will help you to think better, and even work more efficiently on your business. Always take 15 - 30 minute breaks during the day to avoid straining your eyes. Have a good night's sleep, (6 to 8 hours is recommended.) Most importantly, try exercising daily because this will help fuel energy through out your body

6. Stay organized, and focused

Tape your goals list on the wall by your work area, so that you will be reminded of what you are striving towards, each and everyday. This important step alone will help guide you towards your ultimate goal, and keep you focused on what you should be doing. If you ever feel that you don't have the energy to work on your business, simply take a look at your long term goals list, and let it remind you of your dreams. Use this power to help you move forward in the direction you want to go.

7. Check your email ONCE every hour

Some of us love the idea of receiving email daily, and in most cases would likely check it every few minutes. This can be a very devastating routine that you will become accustomed to, be sure you eliminate it before it becomes routine. The real secret to running a successful home based business, is to spend your time wisely and efficiently, by developing a positive daily routine.

8. Have fun

This may be the most important step of all. Make sure that you enjoy every minute you spend working on your business. If you can't stand the idea of getting up in the morning to work, than you might as well look forward to going back to that J.O.B. (Just Over Broke) you dread. You must enjoy what you do, in order to fully succeed and accomplish your long term goals.
I have given you these 8 powerful strategies, the only way that they will work for you is if you apply them right now. I wish you the best of luck with your home business, and I hope that you have a prosperous year

How to Avoid Work at Home Scams

Many people are looking for a new career where they can work at home and still make money. Search the Internet for work at home jobs, and you will be overwhelmed with the number of websites. However, there are several work at home scams floating around on the Internet that you need to watch out for. Here are few things to avoid as you look for a legitimate work at home job.

First, beware of jobs that promise you can get rich quickly. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Beware of ads that ask you to send money to receive information about the job or ask you to buy something to begin the program. Most legitimate job advertisements do not require an investment. Watch out for exaggerated claims of product effectiveness. These advertisements ask you to invest in a new miracle product, which you either don’t receive or is much harder to sell than advertised. You might also be liable if you are asked to sell a fraudulent program to others.

Common work at home schemes including stuffing envelopes, work at home assembly, chain letters and processing medial insurance claims. These scams usually involve money upfront for training or for products which never materialize. The work at home assembly programs often leave people with products they assemble and don’t get paid for.

Work at home scams will never offer you a regular salary for a specific job. They might use personal testimonials about the success of their program without identifying specific names. Work at home schemes usually require no experience, yet guarantee that you will make huge profits. Avoid work at home job advertisements with typing errors or advertisements typed in all capital letters. This is a good indication that the organization is not very professional. Look for contact information in the job advertisement. No contact information usually means it is not a legitimate ad. Vague job descriptions are also indicative of a scam.

If you become a victim to a work at home scam, ask the company for a refund. Notify law enforcement officials, your local Better Business Bureau and your state’s Attorney General office if they refuse to send you a refund. Document all your involvement with the company such as phone calls and keep all your paperwork.

There are many genuine work at home jobs available. Protect yourself by avoiding the common pitfalls of work at home scams.

10 Home-Based Business Ideas for Work at Home Moms

Work at home moms make up a significant portion of home-based business owners and work at home freelance professionals. While there are a lot of perks that come with working at home, the appeal for mothers is often that they’ll be able to spend more time with their children. Keeping that in mind, here is a list of ten home-based business or freelance job ideas that will allow for a flexible schedule that can be worked around family time.

Freelance Writing – Work at home moms can find numerous opportunities for freelance writers, both online and off. Because writing can generally be done at any time, it would be ideal for work at home moms who might only have time to work during occasions where their children are in school or napping. A good resource for moms interested in finding freelance writing clients is www.WritersMarket.com.

Blogging – Similar to other writing fields, blogging can be done at almost any time of day. Most blog networks that hire freelancers have posting requirements on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule, but the time of day that you post is completely adaptable to your own schedule.

eBay – Starting an eBay business is a great option for work at home moms, because most products will sell on a 24-hour basis online without too much supervision. To make an eBay business even more ideal, drop shipping would remove the necessity of storing and managing inventory and making regular post office runs when you would rather spend time with your family.

Child Care – Work at home moms would be ideal for the child care field. If there’s a need in your community, some options would be setting up a home-based day care center or even an after school program for older kids. Depending on where you live, you might need special certifications or licenses, but you would have the added perk of having other children around for your own to play with and socialize with.

Graphic or Web Design – Most design work can be run as an online-only business, meaning you wouldn’t always have to run out to a client’s location for meetings. As long as you regularly answer your email throughout the day, you can concentrate your actual design work during quiet times when the kids are otherwise occupied, or even handle the design work during the evenings.

Tutoring or Lessons – Having students come to your home for tutoring sessions with their schoolwork, or even music lessons, can be easily adapted to fit your family’s typical schedule, such as your child’s nap time, or on weekends when someone else might be around to look after your kids.

Arts and Crafts – If you have any artistic ability, an arts or crafts-related business can be ideal for a work at home mom. You can design jewelry, paint, make candles, or just about any craft you can think of. There is definite potential as you can work on your craft during quiet times or in the evenings, and sell your crafts or art at shows on the weekends. Or, you can sell your products anytime with an online store that will work for you 24-7.

e-Consulting – Similarly to how you can do design work almost entirely online, you can do the same for various forms of consulting if you have the proper training. For instance, you can consult on Web content, do marketing or SEO consulting for website owners, or adapt any kind of expertise into your very own e-consulting firm. Research – Individuals and companies in just about every field have a need for someone to conduct research for them. You can do anything from genealogy research to market research by conducting surveys right from the Web.

Selling Information – Information is still a hot commodity, and these days almost anyone can set up a website. If you create a basic site, you can sell anything from ebooks to podcasts to databases of industry contacts or job listings. The possibilities are endless.

Make Money With A Website Without Selling
Using a website to make money online has become one of the most popular ways nowadays. There are several ways you can make money with a website:


a) Sell your own products and services.
b) Sell other people’s stuff (affiliate program).
c) Place Google ads on your website and earn whenever someone clicks a Google ad.


The first and second ways take a lot of time and require experience and knowledge of Internet marketing. The third option is much easier and quicker to make money online. To place Google ads on your website you need to first join Google AdSense program. You don’t need a professional look or fantastic site to sign up with Google AdSense program. A clean and simple site will be good enough.


The content of your website can be any topic as long as it does not violate Google policies. You can read more about Google policies at https://www.google.com/adsense/policies. You can write a topic or subject that is related to your experience, area of expertise, interest or background. If you are an expert at something you can make your content valuable and useful to others by providing advice and educational resources. If your interest and hobby are sport cars, you may introduce the latest models of sport cars and discuss some of the best tools for building the sports cars.


If you have no idea of what topic to write or have no interest at all in writing something, you still can own a money making AdSense site. Your solution is create a website solely to publish articles written by different authors. Just choose one topic or more and put several relevant articles for each topic and place your Google ads on each article page.


Build an AdSense site with minimum cost.


Hiring a professional to build a site is expensive. Finding a freelancer to create a website will be much cheaper. However employing a freelancer is still not the most effective way to minimize your cost. The best way to minimize cost is use free website builder to create a website. There are several free website builders that allow users to build website without experience and technical knowledge. You can find these easy site builders by performing a search from the major search engines like Google and Yahoo. With site builders you can have a website or more absolutely free. You only pay for the domain name and website hosting.


Once you get your website launched. You’ll need to figure out how to drive visitors to your website. Your website will not generate income if no one visits your site. There are several ways to get targeted visitors/traffic to your site fast.


Pay-per-click (PPC) programs.


Pay-per-click (PPC) programs allow you to bid for top-ranking positions on the keywords you have selected. When a visitor searches the keyword(s) you bid on and then click through to your site, you pay the amount you bid. The two most popular PPC programs are Google Adwords and Yahoo Search Marketing. However it is costly to advertise on these two PPC search engines and probably you will face the problem of your AdSense earning not covering the advertising cost. Fortunately, there are other alternatives such as Bidvertiser.com, Adbrite.com, Findology.com and so on. I recommend you advertise with Bidvertiser.com and Adbrite.com at the beginning as they are much cheaper to advertise with compare to Google Adwords and Yahoo Search Marketing. Bidvertiser.com and Adbrite.com are not search engines. When you sign up to advertise with them, they will distribute your contextual ads to the categories and websites within their network of your choice. You have no doubt your site will advertise on those categories and high traffic sites related to your website. You should also consider selecting those unrelated categories as well because these categories could send you targeted visitors and increase your AdSense revenue. Don’t set your bid too high. Just anywhere from 6 cents to 9 cents should be good enough to drive hundreds of targeted visitors to your site within few days. As long as the daily AdSense earning is greater than the daily advertising cost, you can continue your ad campaigns.


RSS advertising.

RSS advertising is a free away to gain more exposure for your website. By creating an RSS file and submitting it to those RSS directories and search engines, the links to the content in your website will appear in front of those who read information using RSS readers or news aggregators and as a result driving targeted visitors to your website. Need more explanations? You can go to Google and enter the search term ‘make an RSS feed’. You will find detailed explanations of RSS and step-by step instructions on how to create an RSS file to increase your website traffic. Be patient, it will take you several days to learn and understand RSS. Some RSS sites also show an easy option to make RSS file without knowledge of HTML code by using free software tools.


Give away free content.


Another free way to increase your website traffic is write articles and submit them to free content websites. Your articles can drive thousands of visitors to your site within weeks if your content is impressive.

There are other effective ways to increase traffic for your website. You can find a ton of free information and resources about website marketing and promotion from search engines. The more traffic you can drive to your website the higher your AdSense earning will be.


Home Business Or Job At Home


A lot of people would wonder what the difference is. Are we splitting hairs? Isn't it the same thing regardless of what you call it? Actually, no. There is a very big difference between working at home or building a home based business. In some areas there is overlap, but for the most part there is a big distinction between the two.


A work at home is just that, a job. This is where you get paid a certain amount of money, either hourly or salary for doing a particular job from your home. This is often referred to as telecommuting. Common telecommuting jobs would be data entry, typing, Internet research and web design


For example. Let's say you head on over to Monster.com and find a telecommuting job for web designers. You send in your resume and they hire you. They will then contact you with an assignment. XYZ company wants to have a web site designed for high school students. They send you the specs and tell you when they expect the job to be completed by. They will also tell you what you will be paid, whether for the assignment itself or for how many hours it took you. If hourly, they'll make you fill out a time card and send it to them.


That is an example of a work at home job. There is no overhead, no advertising expenses, you're paid for the work you do and most likely you'll get a 1099 at the end of the year so that you can report all the money that you made. The only difference between what was described above and an office job of the same type is the location from where you're working.


A home business is something quite different. For starters and this is the most important difference, you're not paid for the work you do. Yes, you may ultimately make some money and hopefully a lot of money, but there is no guarantee of payment. You're putting in the work you do in the hopes of being able to make some kind of income from it. You may ultimately decide to start your own web design business and do the same kind of work that you did at the job but here is where the two are quite different.


In starting your own web design business, nobody is going to give you an assignment. You have to advertise your business and let people know that you are available to do custom web design. You'll put up a web site, do some advertising on the Internet at a number of places and then sit back and hope you get a few emails with requests for work. You will then have to tell your customers what your rates are, how long the job will take and then finally get the specs for the design itself. You are in charge of and responsible for everything.


There is of course a plus side to running your own home business as opposed to working a job at home. With a job at home, there is only so much you're going to earn. With your own business, while you may make absolutely nothing, there is a very good chance if you promote regularly and work hard that you can turn your business into a very lucrative income.
