Home Based Internet Marketing Business – My True Story
Several years ago I was fortunate enough to come across a
home based internet marketing business. At that specific
time I was very stressed and had just been retrenched. I
was looking for another job and I knew I had to do
something about my future. I came across a website by the
late Corey Rudl. It was the popular Insider Secrets To
Marketing Your Business On The Internet course. I found it
to be a very good starting point and it was at that moment
that my life changed forever. Looking back now I would have
laughed if anyone told me that I would be running a
business from home.
Initially I was slow to get started. I finished the course
and just played around creating some web sites. At that
stage I was still under the illusion that you needed to run
a real business with a physical address to succeed. At that
stage the internet was recovering from the dot-com bubble
where many internet companies that did not have any sound
business models went bust. I was still under the illusion
that this would continue forever.
However, I still continued in my spare time to slowly build
an internet business. I used to spend several hours a week
part time and all of the sudden I had developed a full time
income. Looking back now there were some key ingredients
that made my business successful.
The very first was to choose a profitable niche market
where there was virtually no competition. I built a web
site on trucks and was earning a good income from
advertising. This is one of the most fundamental aspects
that you need to get right for your business. A lot of
people who are new to internet marketing choose markets
that are too competitive or do not have a sound business
The other very important factor that helped me to succeed
was when I started building a list. I had to also learn how
to market effectively to my subscribers and in this way
create a sustainable business.
The sooner you can master these two critical skills the
sooner you will be able to create a sustainable home based
internet marketing business.
