Fact is there is a vast multitude of people that spend or lose money online every day. Not me you say, but think about it, do you have a internet connection? Most likely yes. You already have an investment! There are a large percentage of people that use the internet for fun and entertainment, I understand that. Still they are spending, or for this articles sake, losing money online. So at the minimum the cheapest paid internet connection is $9.99. From there the price goes up, I pay about 69.99 ( or my wife does actually!) to be online for fun, entertainment or for business purposes.Unless you are patched in on the side(it happens!) you are spending something to be here.
The next one is really my focus. A vast multitude of web surfers that buy the latest system, download it and look for another! THERE IS NO INSTANT FIX!
Spending money on every cool, instant get rich, get traffic, get popular system is the basis of losing money online. Most do not work or every one would be rich that had a internet connection.
If you spend money to be online and just enjoy it no problem, it is your money. In fact you could just click on out of here and blip a song (thats a blast by the way!)
I have decided last year I would invest! Invest time, talent and yes money online to build a bigger future for my family and my enjoyment!
If your intent was to spend or “lose ” money online no problem but if your intent was to make money then read closely the points I am about to make, listen a little closer and join us who are making money online!
If you have been losing money online, trying to make some STOP! The get rich quick schemes that I have seen do not work! If you have one that is making you over $10,000 a month then email me now! Fact is they do not work. Stop being compelled to buy the latest “be a millionaire in two days” systems. The huge marketers know that a percentage will buy and make a ton of money that way. Just quit!
Real business takes an investment, real world businesses spend money to make money right? The unique thing about internet business is that you can start with a minimal initial investment. You can start with very little money, invest a lot of time and have a profitable recession proof online business very quickly! The more money you can invest the less of your time you will have to invest.
Here are the five basic steps to build a real profitable internet business.
- Build- You have to stop chasing the dollar for a while, focus on a genuine business, niche, or product and build! Two choices here, invest time or money into that chosen business, niche or product. Which you have the most of will determine what you will have to invest. Build a website, build your brand and start a real business!
- Attract- Make no mistake in the order here! Most new fired up wanna be, or going to be marketers get this backwards. The natural is to chase the dollar and sell. Again I say STOP! Attract new friends, new ones, to your business. There hundreds of ways to do this. This will not be a complete list by far. Talk to people have genuine interest in them, people love to talk about themselves and are attracted to someone who will listen. Use the plethora of social networking sites to build friendships. But focus on quality here. It doesn’t take much to form a little tiny bond with someone, and when they ask about that link on your profile, mine is http://www.squidoo.com/Making-Money-Online-1, then it is time for step four.
- Market- You can market a thousand different ways but the saying “build it and they will come” was not about internet business. It is true and a essential that a site with great SEO will get free traffic. That is a topic for another day, I have a short post on that also at http://recessionbusters.biz/wordpress/?p=123 . You will have to send your pitch though and market, talk to your group of friends, post links, share your business with them. Write articles and post them at all the article sites you can. I ask for help on the social media sites I live on, people respond big when you are genuine, offering a genuine product with value. Add your website info in your signature for the emails you send. You have to get the word out, be creative and even make new ways to market your new business!
- Sell- There comes a time to ask for the sale. You can develop your site to do this for you. Some people will just have to be asked and will jump on board. When the time is right, the iron is hot ask for the sale! Thats why we did the first steps all that hard work or money invested, sell!
- Repeat- Yes as you grow in your knowledge and experience some success pour that back in to your business and watch it grow! This grows exponentially as your business grows. It can happen very fast depending on your initial investment. Keep repeating these steps until you want to quit, sell or move on. Never, never forget the people that helped out in your beginning though. Be grateful and above all be real!
It is time for a change, a new breed of internet marketers that add great value to their community. This is just a small list of ways you can STOP losing money online and start making money online in a real recession proof business. There are many pitfalls and bunny trails along the way, I hope you focus and succeed this next year! I will do what I can to help as I am still committed to your success!
