Critical Factors for Starting an Online Business|
Copyright 2004, Alan Cheng
We all wish to have an extra stream of income to help ourselves
and family become financially independent - trying to get out
of the 9 till 5 office job.
Having an internet business doesn't mean you have to be a
programmer or a web designer to do it. So get that thought
out of your head first.
You do however, have to put some elbow grease in. A lot of
people think that they can just build an internet business and
then voila - the money will come rolling in. You can also get
that thought out of your skull.
There are so many myths about earning money online that it's
worthwhile to know what's the garbage and whatís the reality
To start things off, you can sign up for the exclusive report
at http://www.onlinemoneymachine.com/alen about the truth and
myths of making money online. The report should hit you straight
in the face with its straight forwardness which many people
donít want to believe.
The key to starting an online business is to know what you
only need to know that will help you. Don't listen to the hype
of profiting easily by doing very little. Read up on marketing
materials for your business but make sure the information is
reliable and that it is from a trusted source.
So what does the Beginner have to know to get started on their
path to online riches?
Here's my list in order of priority. Follow the steps and you
won't be far from achieving your dreams.
1. The right attitude.
Give your customers the best service you can. Understand that
this is your own business. Work hard at it. Acknowledge the
fact that the internet is no different to a normal business.
It still needs advertising, great customer support and a good
product so people will come back.
2. The product you're going to sell
If you don't know what you're going to sell, send an email to
mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org for my list of recommended
affiliate programs which you can recommend even to your close
3. Read up on marketing strategies.
Reading books on marketing is so essential to your business.
I hammer that thought to my customers every so often in my
training. Please learn how to market your business. Itís how
people know about you and buy from you.
4. Plan your marketing strategies.
OK. Youíve read the books and are full of information. Now plan
how youíre going to execute your marketing strategies. A plan
makes a person more committed to carrying out essential tasks.
5. Execute your strategies.
All the above is useless if you donít execute. Take action. Do
anything but donít do nothing.
6. Review your results and make modifications.
Make modifications to your website or marketing strategies.
Choose the strategy that has the best results. Continuously
try and improve the conversion rate of your website.
7. Repeat steps 1 to 7.
You have to understand that people are making money on the
internet as a living. With the proper coaching and information,
you can too.
The steps discussed above are guaranteed to make you succeed.
However, it takes time. Don't expect overnight success. Take
the first step now which is to begin. These are the reasons
why I created http://www.onlinemoneymachine.com .
