Did you ever wonder what it would be like to make extra money online? I'm sure most if not all of you have probably one time or another sat at your job and daydreamed about what it would be like to live a better life then what you currently are living. Don't worry your not alone I did it all the time.
In fact I did it so much it made me start trying to earn a living from working at home. The only thing I knew was I wanted to make money and A LOT of it really fast. I'm sure you say the same exact thing.
However that's why I only made $100 if that every month, because I was try so hard to make money I didn't look at the details. So what did I change? Well I took a step backwards and set new more realistic goals for myself.
That was my first mistake. I had set unrealistic goals such as how much money I wanted to make in my first month. Sure you can make large sums of money on the Internet, but it's going to take time, practice, and a lot of patients.
Here is what I did.
I asked myself how much money I would feel comfortable making, and by this I mean how much money would I need to live a better life then the one I'm living right now. So I came up with $4,000 a month. Not much I know, but its better then what I was making.
So next I asked myself what could I sell online to make this money. I did some research and found a market that I liked and joined a small program for $200, and for each sale I made I got paid $100.
Next I looked to see how many sales I would have to make in one month to reach my goal, which would be 40 sales. After I had that number in my head I then when on to see how many sales I would have to make each day to reach my goal, which comes out to a little more then 1 sale per day.
Looking at it this way allowed me to really get a good feel for what I had in store for me in the coming month. Now that I had the numbers all figured out I had to get that traffic. Now a lot of people go “traffic I have no idea how to get traffic to a website".
Well here are a few things that are must for any business you'll ever do.
- Lead capture page
- Auto responder
That's it, that's all you'll need to profit online.
After I had all of the things above setup I started to advertise, and let me be the first to say I knew nothing about how to get traffic to a website. I had to teach myself how to market online. Yes it wasn't easy, and it took a long time. My hard work did pay off though.
My first month I had hit my goal, and ever since then I never looked back. Here are a few important tips to really think about before you start a work at home business.
1. Are you really prepared for what your about to get into?
2. Do you have at least 2 - 4 hours per day to invest into your business?
3. Can you handle not making any money for 2 - 3 months?
4. Never listen to what family and friends say. Yes they mean good, but can you really take advice from someone who knows just as little if not less then you do about a program or system or product?
5. Do you have money to start up your business? Everything you try to start online will and does cost money.
Read those five things over and over a few times, and really let them sink in. Those are the hard facts of making money online. If you can deal with them you will find success.
