Things to keep in mind when to make money
online







Ever heard the phrase : build and they will
come?

On the web, it's more like,build it, promote it consistently,
distinguish yourself in some way, and maybe they will come. There are millions
upon millions of websites. It's simply not possible to slap together a website,
dump it online, and wait for the money to come rolling in. Making money online
can be done, but all of the people who did, have worked hard to achieve what
they have.

If you be honest to yourself you know you will have to do
something to make money online. Are you also tired of all those programs that
promise you big money without any investment of time, money or work? It is no
breaking news if I tell you those programs don't work. let's be honest! If you
could make big money by doing nothing. Why aren't we all millionaires then? Why
are they still advertising and working their program? I think you can
guess.

They Tell you that you can be rich very quickly. This
should put you on high alert! If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
While we would all like to be able to make $ 500 a day, starting from our first
day and continuing into infinity, it isn't very likely.

You're told
that you don't need to do any work-they do it all for you.
You cannot be
successful without putting in a lot of hard work

You're told that
anyone can make money.
Again, not true. If that were true, we'd all be rich.
The internet is a goldmine of opportunity, no doubt about that.....but it's like
any other opportunity: some people will do well, other's won't. The internet
only gives you the home based work opportunity; you have to shape that
opportunity. Being told that anyone can get rich off their program is
misleading.

You'll have to be comfortable with your computer You
will do everything with your computer. You will have an Email program. Online
Business reports. With a good program an online training program. etc etc. You
don't have to be a wizzkid. You will get coaching and training to learn. But you
must feel comfortable with your computer and ready to learn some
tricks.

You must be willing to make a time commitment Without
doing any work you make $2500 the first month! Do you really believe this?
Again, we would all be millionaires. The internet is like the real world; you'll
have to work to make money online. Don't be fooled into thinking that home based
business opportunities are an easy way to make money online. It is true 99% of
the work is done by the company. As an affiliate you'll do 1% of the work. But
you're doing the hardest part of the work. Sure, your only job is to advertise-
but that requires a great deal of learning and effort. It's not as simple as
throwing a banner on your website. You have to put forth a effort in order to
make money online; if you're not motivated to make your home based business
opportunity work, you won't do well.

You'll have to spend a little
money to invest
Did you ever hear of building a business without investing
any money? On the other hand we don't want to spend much, so better spend it
wisely.

Computer system - You don't need a top-of-the-line
machine. Get a good computer that will serve your current and your projected
short-term future needs well. Be sure to get anti virus software and a firewall
as well.

Reference books - I do think investing in a few good
reference manuals are well worth the time, effort, and money they save you. And
they do save you money in the long run-you can learn from other people's
experiences and avoid making same mistakes.

Email software - Most
computer systems come installed with Email software.

HTML editor -
You don't need an HTML editor; you can create your web pages using Notepad if
you like. Beginners often like WYSIWYG editors. WYSIWYG stand for : What you see
is what you get. All this means is that you'll be able to drag and drop items
using this editor so that you can immediately see what your web page looks like.
In other words, you don't need to know HTML.

Domain name
registration.


Website hosting

Internet access
fees


Mailing list
management


Advertising

SE/index reviews. You can
get a great deal of targeted traffic to your website from the major search
engines and indexes.



To get anywhere in life you"ll have to work
hard. Here are a few tips to help you work on your business:

Drop the
negativity - for example, instead of moaning about how you still haven't made
any money, focus instead on how great it will be to make your first sale.
Believe me, that first sale is an incredible feeling! It will energizes you in a
way that's hard to describe.

Take it one small step a time - There's no
point in setting a lofty goal, only to fail at achieving it. A bunch of small
steps will eventually lead to the achievement of a larger
goal.

Re-prioritize - There is no way that anyone can do everything. Let
small things go while you concentrate on your business.

Be willing to
make a few smart investments - While we would all prefer to spend nothing and
make millions, it's simply not realistic.it takes money to make
money.

Force yourself to do a little most days - sometimes it is hard.
You will have to drag yourself to the computer every single day to do 5 small
tasks-and not having seen a single sale. But in the end it will pay off; there
will be a point where you quit your job and make money online.

Stay 100%
focused on what you want - Keep your final destination firmly in mind: do you
want to be able to spend more time with the kids? Do you simply want to leave
the stress of the corporate world? Do you simply want the independence and sense
of achievement that comes from running your own business? Imagine what it will
be like once you achieve it. Focus on why you want the business in the first
place; it will help to keep you motivated.

Only you can change the course
of your live. So what are you waiting for? Get going!
