Start a Home Biz – Wake Up and Smell the Coffee!

Yep. It is time to stop living your life as if you are in a vacuum. What exactly might that mean to you? It might mean you are letting your life go down the tubes. Sure you have a wonderful nuclear and extended family, some good friends, and a job that lets you afford to live in a decent environment.Things could be worse.
wake up!

Of course you want to make some time to enjoy yourself and do the things that you enjoy and which are relaxing and fulfilling to you. A little couch-potato time is also definitely deserved and needed from time to time. Just don’t get to where that is always the first and last part of your day as a rule. If so maybe you need vitamins or more exercise if this is always your preference for what to do with the next hour.

So beyond all that living you are doing, did you ever just as an experiment analyze how much time you waste? Really look at and even document times where you know you could be accomplishing something but you aren’t. Why not in the spirit of a hobby, start a business online? It’s easy and could mean you have extra money to do more eventually.

Just as you might someday count all the change in your piggy bank and be amazed at how much you have saved, it might work out the same if you manage to carve out an hour or two a week to develop a home business online. It may be fun to socialize on the various social networks, but really, what does it buy you? Friendship and sociability have their value, so do a little of that to be ‘well-rounded’.

However, if you spend literally all your online time chattering and surfing you are wasting what could represent valuable time where you could actually be accomplishing something to improve your bottom line. Do it but do it with an eye on discovering something exciting and productive. Then someday put it all together and do something with it.

Build a Business Online

Just like everything else in real life, we usually have to start things by taking the first step. If we can never quite get there we usually will just forget about it. In other cases, though it will remain somewhere in our mind, and someday we may actually take action.
now or whenever

The thing is in the case of starting a business that you are literally wasting time where you could be earning extra money. You would maybe be surprised how simple that would be to do with just a little bit of effort. We do not have to immediately be tied-down but can just take the preliminary steps and then whenever we can we can make some progress.

Your business can be as simple as joining an affiliate program or two and investing just a little time to promote it in a casual way; for example to discuss the program in a blog post and include the affiliate link. Try to do that periodically. At the very least if you do this frequently enough the search engines may notice and index your site. This can result in ranking even with your smallest effort.

By the time you decide to get serious and do other things to promote your affiliate program, people may be able to find your link when they query your keywords. No telling if you could actually make sales at this level although it usually takes a bit more effort on your part.

Your business can also be something other than just having an affiliate program. However that may require a domain name, hosting account (both extremely inexpensive – lunch), and a product or service which can be whatever you want it to be. It can also be something you represent for someone else such as a product or service they have and would pay you for referrals (such as for instance health and beauty products).

There is very little investment if any beyond the technical things you need to have a website of your own. If you are planning on developing your own product or service someday, you can develop and/or change your website as many times as you change your mind on what you really want to do. Obviously it will take a more advanced skill set to invent something of your own.

Critical Home Business Issues : Be There or be Square

Staying in touch with your downline and prospects are probably a few of the most important parts of your ‘job’ as a home business owner. That is if you want to be a success over the long-term. There are different elements to this and each is important.

Reach Out

There is ‘touch base’ – what is up with you? Are there any issues you are having you would like to discuss? This is usually an obvious autoresponder message; although that may not please everyone, just ask them to write to 100s of people individually and see from their own expression how ludicrous (and impossible) that would be. The point here is if there is a problem, respond to it. Don’t and you got a big joke that may actually become angry.

Then there are always ads and new opportunities that may be sent periodically to let people know there are new tools and resources if they are interested in adding something to their arsenal or they wish to try something new because they are disenchanted with their results right now.

However the most critical of all is to be contacted by one of your people and not respond at all or fail to keep your appointment. This is particularly insulting if you have said you ‘will get back to them’ or that you have set up an actual appointment and you don’t show; with no explanation – a real slap in the face.

This is the height of arrogance and there is no telling what you may deserve as a result if this is the ‘regular’ way you run your shop. Did you ever just in general read how always making people wait says that their time is not important to you? If it is more than occasional or unavoidable, again it is a slap in face insult.

Why do you treat people who believe in you, follow and support you this way? As a matter of fact they are paying your rent. What if they all quit and went away to find a sponsor who will actually work with them? You really need to think about this from every perspective and figure why you feel entitled to treat people this way and knock it off before you need to find a job.
