Before You Get Started In The Home Based Business Industry And Making Money Online – Here’s Some Tips!
Hello and thank you for checking back to my latest blog post on the home based business industry.
I provide advice and guidance on a wide range of subjects to my Six Figure Mentors team members. One of the topics we cover is blogging and what I call my four and one marketing system.
This has led to Andy Gelder producing a very helpful article on the home based business industry and making money online.
As I have found this to be helpful I can now share this with you today.
Here is what Andy Gelder says…
Home Based Business Tips – The Introduction
“My intention here is to guide you one step at a time into your online marketing career.
What I will be giving you is the path I have followed myself and indeed I am still on that journey to success.
I will be talking to you about the mistakes I have made along the way and how I learnt from them and how I turned them into successes.
My Internet Marketing career is still in its infancy stage but I have had lots of experience in businesses in the corporate world and in particular with the Network Marketing industry.
All too often people get started on the wrong foot. This applies to businesses of all types, in all different niches. It also happens in relationships too, whether it is a personal relationship or a business relationship.
You may be new to Internet Marketing or you may be a veteran who hasn’t attained the success they want yet. Either way this will serve you well.
Home Business – The Right Mindset!
We all have the ability to act. It is a power that is within all of us. You just have to decide to take action. It is important that you don’t listen to other peoples sometimes negative views on your new venture, so be prepared for that too.
Find a mentor to work closely with, maybe the person that introduced you to your new business and if they are not very supportive or unavailable then find someone who you can work with to help keep you focused.
Get some positive input from Personal Development Books too. All budding entrepreneurs should have a library of books to keep them on the right track at all times.
These are just some of the names that have written Classic after Classic. These names should be at the top of your list. There also many other great authors who have written best sellers so check out some sites where you can get books or maybe audio books to get some positive input to keep you on track.
The list is endless. There are some great online book stores where these will be available from, usually with next day delivery, which sometimes can even be free.
When I first got started I wish someone would have advised me “look, you’re going to focus on ONE thing at a time and master it before you move onto the next“. Focus isn’t just a word, it’s the ability to keep your eye on what you want to accomplish so any obstacles you see will be ignored. There will be many skills to learn in this industry, so learn one new skill, master it before moving on.
Be clear on what it is that you want to achieve and what your rewards will be as a result of your success..Yes GOALS! “Oh no not another goal setting freak”.
You must have clarity;”if you don’t know where you are going, how are you going to know when you get there” and try not to focus on too many material goals. Yes have some material items on your list but there is more to life than flash cars and bling.
What choices would you be able to make if money was no object and you had all the time in the world to make those choices. Think about that one for a moment.
The information available out there on the information highway is infinite but we can’t always see what it is we are looking for, even if it is right in front of our noses.
In your early days, as I still am to some extent, don’t be afraid to ask for help or advice from Marketers who have more knowledge than you. The genuine guys and girls will offer advice freely and willingly. There are some charlatans’ out there in the market place so choose wisely who you connect with and trust. Be cautious but trust your instincts at the same time.
Don’t be afraid to ask for references from people either, don’t learn the hard way.
There are some great forums where you can connect with people and also check out people’s blogs for the information that you are looking for.
Probably the best place to connect is an online community. I am an SFM member and we have an in house online community where sourcing the right answers to your questions is simple. We have “how to video’s” for almost everything and if there is not one available then you just have to ask and someone will be there to help.
So, don’t be afraid to ask. The only reason you don’t know the answer is because you don’t know the answer. Stay in the student frame of mind, it will serve you well.
Mediocrity Should Not Be Your Goal
The online marketplace is overflowing with average Joe’s providing services to people.
The vast majority of them are just looking for the next sale. If your objective is to only find ways to get your next sale then you are running on the wrong tracks. Those are the tracks of your mediocre average Joe.
Your sole aim should be to focus on providing value to your subscribers and nothing else. Don’t just give them what they want, give them options above and beyond that so that they have multiple choices. Free is a great place to start. A free eBook or a free report, there is lots of free stuff available online so look to see what you can give to your list for free. It will pay you dividends in the long run.
Remember you can’t please everybody all of the time, to try is folly. Stay true to yourself, throw your heart into your business, and stand firm in your beliefs and good things will happen to you.
If things don’t go to plan and it will happen from time to time, ranting about it will do no good at all. Learn from it, let it go and move on.
Automation And Software
Automation and software are the key to running a successful online business, but there is no such thing as a push button solution that will make you rich. Understand that you will need to invest some money into your new business to get it up and running.
So, it is time to go and get yourself an attitude, one that will serve you well and lead you in the right direction towards success.
Don’t delay, get your mindset right today.
