Do you have what it takes to be successful on the Internet?
And, do you have a desire to pick yourself up, after countless failures of Internet success, and try again?
Before we even begin the first question you need to ask of yourself, are you capable of making decisions, and then see the decisions carried out with determination and commitment? Then monitoring and assessment will determine the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the endeavour, and determine the necessity for change or re-enforcement of the relevant techniques for the success of the enterprise.
Not every person is capable of working independent of management structures, which distinctly benefit from a secure position in a successful team, and the knowledge of a salary every month, all fringe benefits of working for successful company and carrying out authoritative instructions. Some people enjoy the daily commute to work each and every working day, and the social interactions on the journey and throughout the working day with colleagues and clientele.
The true fact is, being capable of developing an Internet business from ground zero; a home based business is not a straight forward task. It calls for ingenuity and initiative and more importantly, acceptance of failure must be a commitment and determination to try something different, or even to research and develop a more realistic approach to advertising, promotion and marketing the business product or service. There is no Boss around who can take the blame for failure, or adversely, a more knowledgeable colleague who can show a different direction.
More realistically, there are people who are concerned about the risks involved in starting a business in the depths of the credit downturn; they are not necessarily convinced if its a sound investment in time and money. They are scared in reality, of the responsibility that is apparent with running their own business, and the financial implications associated with failure. They may be convinced there is another way to escape the rat race, which will entail less risky financial endeavours.
Fortunately there is a better way to start a successful Internet business and keeping the financial risks to a minimum. There are millions of different ways that successful entrepreneurs having made their fortunes on the Internet, if you believe their stories. I dare to say that most is in fact true, but what is not readily told, is the hard fact that it took maybe one year, or two years, or even more truthfully, even three years to have a successful Internet business. To make $20,000 per month or more as some claim, involves mastering a multitude of skills which must be understood and practiced, before even a possibility of earning profits from an Internet business.
All successful Internet entrepreneurs who learned how to make money on the Internet, by first learning the basics of website development, search engine optimization (SEO), then crucially the most important technique of all, website advertising, promoting and marketing. Without a thorough understanding of the relevant basic skills, the chances of making an Internet business profitable are nil.
Once the Internet entrepreneur masters the relevant skills, they then applied the basic skills to building one successful internet business. Then experiment by trial and error, making the Internet business more profitable, with success they then have an opportunity to building a second successful Internet business, which can easily double the profits, with very little risk of failure.
The most successful entrepreneurs, will in actual fact own multitude of successful created Internet businesses and benefit from the wealth which each individual Internet business provides. The fact remains the successful entrepreneur will not risk all their wealth in one successful business, they will reduce the risks of absolute loss, by dividing their wealth into a multitude of successful Internet businesses, which reduce the chances of failure if one or two of the successful business fails.
Combined with the many years of research of how does the successful Internet entrepreneurs make wealth on the Internet, as an offshoot of the research, an amazing discovery was why so many potential entrepreneurs fail at the first hurdle. They all tried to master the relevant basic skills, website development, search engine optimization, advertising, promotion and marketing, required for a successful Internet business too soon.
By trying to create the Internet business too early, without mastering the relevant basic skills, the chances of success in any Internet business is significantly reduced tremendously. In every case without exception, they were just overwhelmed by the extra workload of learning the basic skills in all the essential techniques, without the basic understanding of what works, and why not, if its unworkable and what to alter to secure success.
The majority of potential entrepreneurs follow the traditional approach to making money on the Internet. Find a product which they believe is needed by the Internet masses; Followed by building a downloadable website to show and sell the product; then expect the prospects to know where to look to buy their product; and finally, learn how to sell the product to the potential visitors, so there will be thousands of sales each week.
Although this technique for Internet success is the traditional method to selling any items, it will not work for many who attempt to start an online business. Why, well thats simply because the potential entrepreneur must master untraditional skills, which is unique to the Internet, and then use these unique skills masterly, to develop the website.
To perfect the skills to entice the major search engines, to list the nearly created website on the first page or page two of search results search engine optimization (SEO will only be expected at this stage to index the website, and not high ranking), then possibly the most important skill to master is successful website advertising, promotion and marketing of the unique website. Yet, all these skills must be successfully completed before expecting to earn a single dollar.
Remember, its not
