2 years ago I left my job as a sales manager to start a home
based Internet business. I had already bought a lot of books
promising substantial incomes within days or at least a month.
Nothing could stop me now – I had several project up and
running in no time.
First mistake to avoid is rushing into a home-based business
that program that you know little or nothing about. Many
on the Internet want to make money from selling you the
home based business. In many cases they haven’t even tested
Second mistake to avoid is thinking you can go from zero to a
successful Internet business in 30 days or less. I am not
saying it is impossible, but most end up with a giant
information overflow and no money in the pocket. You must plan
for a modest income the first 3-5 months.
Produce a list of alternatives and try to identify the
success factors and skills needed. Be realistic – you have to
have some of the key skills needed it you are going to
Third mistake is quitting a program to soon. What I did and
should not repeat is thinking that it is something wrong with
the program when the money doesn’t start pouring in. Often it
is a question of making minor changes, measuring the effects
the changes and wait for things to start happen.
Forth mistake is starting cheating when you get desperate and
low on self-esteem There are a lot of scrupulous people out
there making money from guys like you who has been knocked in
the first round
A lot of communities is exchanging clicks for Google AdSense.
Did you really think you could get away with it? You end up
getting banned from the program and excluded from one of the
best home based Internet businesses you can find. Again be
patient – you will succeed if you really try.
Fifth mistake to avoid is not learning the basic stuff. The
basic skills for succeeding with a home-based business is to
create content, attract visitors and make money from you
visitors. You can buy some product and services that helps you
on the way, but you must understand and be able to handle the
basic stuff if you want to establish your home business and
Starting a home based Internet business is like a boxing
Be patient – work hard and smart and you will become the champ
of home-based Internet marketing.
