Everyday countless people want to learn how to make money at home, the problem is most people do not know where to start or what to do to work online. There are so many people promising you the world telling you they can show you how to make a $ 100,000 a month online, unfortunately many of these get rich quick businesses are nothing more than scams, the only people making money are the people who sell you the information.
Unfortunately most people who start home based businesses fail, the percentages of work from home opportunities that fail are staggering at around 90%. The reasons for these failures are many but the main ones are:
Lack of guidance and experience –
most people who start a home based business online have no idea what's involved, you need to know how to market, how to build a website (if your promoting your own product) and what program to join. I always advise my clients to do their due diligence, research what they like and learn about the different opportunities out there before they make a decision.
Many people new to home based businesses do not give their new venture anywhere near enough time to become successful, most people once they start and run into the common struggle most of us face at the start just give up. The main reason for this is because most home based businesses you can start for under a thousand dollars (and most times much less), that is a tiny investment for your own business and because it's such a small investment people do not take it seriously and quit when the going gets tough. If you invested a half million dollars into a franchise would you quit if things did not go as planned off the bat? Of course not. you would work harder to make your franchise a success, most of us are not going to walk away from a half million dollar investment.
Lack of Money –
getting into any business whether it is a conventional business or a home based business has a certain investment required. You can make money at home for much less than a store front business because you do not have the inventory or expenses. But you still have to drive traffic to your website there are many forms of free advertising on the internet but the some of the best traffic usually comes with a cost. Google AdWords is one of the best ways to generate traffic to your site but you pay for everyone who clicks on your ad, these are the sponsored listings you see when you do a search. Some clicks you can pay .05 a click and some clicks can run into many dollars per click. There is a lot of free information on PPC (pay per click). Like any business before you begin your best bet is to research and learn.
The real secret to success and the easiest way to make money at home is to pick an opportunity where the investment is under a thousand dollars. The company gives you a replicated website so you do not have the expense of building your own and make sure there is plenty of guidance and training to help you succeed.
Today many opportunities do weekly or biweekly teleconferences and even online conferences to help train you and to help you bring new members onto your team. Also look for a company that offers a real pay out when you sell their products or services. I have been involved with too many low paying opportunities, you ca not market effectively if there is not enough money cover your cost of advertising, if you want to pay for a portion of your traffic.
Finally, contact the person you are thinking about going into business with make sure he is knowledgeable about the business and willing to help you succeed.
Be confident because you really can make money at home, it just takes the right opportunity and dedication to be successful. Treat your home based business like a big business, dress for success and keep a positive attitude. Tell yourself you are successful, visualize the goals as if you really possess those things you brain does not know the difference from what you see with your eyes opened and what you see when your eyes are shut and visualizing.
