5 Secrets to Jump Starting a Beginners Business
How do Beginners Really Get Started?
When I first started, I did exactly the same thing that hundreds of newbies I've spoken to are still doing … they buy this program, then buy another, and another, and another, and NOTHING ever shares in any money.
What's really sad, most of these newbies tell me how they have carefully thought out their plans (for about 12 to 18 months), to build their first site. Stop thinking. Stop planning. It is better to have Tried and fail … than to have done NOTHING! Take the first step right now!
Visit WordPress.com and get started on your first blog.
-Jump in by purchasing a license for a good, quality, low cost product.
-Check out all the freebies and pick one you can use as a give-a-way to the sign ups for your newly created Aweber.com list.
-become an affiliate of a program you really believe in and market it professionally.
-Consider starting out with a small budget of $ 5 a day and run an ad on AdWords (remember, keep it low until you learn).
We all fear what we do not understand, so, Whatever you do, do not be fearful of mistakes, you're going to make some, so learn from them. Mistakes are even made by marketers with years of experience. The secret is to keep the losses small and learn from them. Once you find a winner that works, you start really going for it.
I recently interviewed Mr.Lee McIntyre, because he decided to take that first step to go online and was quickly successful in 2 different niches.
Mr. McIntyre, a teacher, had no business background and he had never before produced a product nor composed an ad. Yet, just a few weeks back he celebrated his first year of having a very successful online business.
As a result of the interview I produced both, a product called "Beginners Only: ABC 30 Day Success Secrets, as well as a 15-page guide showing you how to jump start your new business.
Here are 5 of Lee McIntyre's Jump Start Tips:
1. Do Not Keep Thinking and Wondering Day After Day What Your Niche Should Be.
Rather than spending weeks or months considering what his niche should be. He jumped right into a new market by smartly utilizing his years of teaching experience and skills. Although I usually suggest beginners research their specific market, most of them go way overboard with their research. Your fist choice of market is not necessarily going to be a long lasting one. It's merely your first stepping stone to learn from.
2.Start and Be Half Done
He did his research and quickly found a couple of others who had success in the market, so he started. He began testing to determine what did and did not work. So I advise you to stop thinking and planning so much. Just Start! Anything started is half done! Personally, I use small one page business plans which I adjust according to changing results.
3. Concentrate on One Traffic Generating Program
He did not know much about articles, blogs or AdWords. So he just jumped in and started using the one way he knew would generate some traffic. Later on he found other methods to add to his marketing skills. So do not try to learn everything before you start. Just learn and know enough to get started. That's when the real learning begins.
4. Begin with Inexpensive Products
He started the easy way, with affordable, short reports, which could easily be created over a weekend. Today, he now offers much larger, higher priced programs which require much more time and work, and longer, better ad copy to help sell those higher ticket reports.
5.Give Added-Value to Your Customers List
As he sold products he built an e-mail list. Instead of bombarding his customers with constant product offers, he follows up with lots of informative content to grow his relationship and continues to build trust by over-delivering. He then promotes his products with even more success.
