I hear about so many people that give up on so many things before it even had a chance. Why did they even start? Did they research to see how long it would take for their project to blossom? Most likely they did not.
Let me briefly tell you a story. After High School I went immediately into the U. S. Marines. Around the Fifth week at Parris Island during bootcamp I wanted to quit. I went to my Senior Drill Instructor and to his face I said I wanted to go home. What he said and did during the next 5 minutes changed me, Well the entire 3 months of bootcamp changed me, LOL. Seriously though, He told me that he was not giving up on me cause I had more potential than anyone he had seen and he was going to forget we had that conversation. He refused to let me quit. I thought afterwards why had I given up, no one else had given up on me.
I gave up because I was looking at the now (the pain, homesick), You know all the negative things. Had I quit I would have missed out on so much in life. I traveled to 7 different countries. My college was paid for. I get many benefits as a veteran now, etc.
The same applies to your Online Business. We look at the now and quit. You think that no one is paying attention to what you have done so you quit. The website is shutdown and than the advertising you did, the people you thought were not paying attention and many others come to your site for your services and you are gone. The money you could have made, you now will not make. The extra time you could have spent with your family and on vacations will not happen. The financial freedom, being your own boss (what I call true freedom) will never be. Why? Because you quit way too early.
You ask well I have not made any money in six months what am I suppose to do? The answer . . Before you started you should have researched to see what kind of demand was in for your business. Set a schedule up for your business and stick to it. (ex. follow a daily schedule and set aside 1 hour for emails, 2 hours for advertising, etc. ) The Internet is full of easy tools for building websites and you can find people that will help you. You have got to continue to advertise, build up an opt-in list. These people will become your support, customers and some may become your business partners through Joint Ventures. If you have did everything possible and still are not getting any sells. I would say take a close look at what you got and see what is wrong. Then nothing may be wrong it could just be your market and you should try looking into something else.
If you do not quit, keep looking for your perfect niche than you will enjoy success on the internet and I challenge each of you to do this. The easiest way to find the perfect product and business is to just ask. . . . go to forums and ask people in your opt-in list. Ask them what do they want or need to help with their problem. Take the answer you get the most and find a solution or a business to cater to it. You will be successful this way majority of the time I guarantee it. Give it a try.
Most of the people that fail with their online business fail because they quit. You can join them or stick it out, achieve your goals and ultimately your dream of working full time from home. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity of working for yourself from your own home. I know that it can be aggravating sometimes especially when just starting out but remain positive and keep a positive outlook. Stay Motivated to do the work and dedicated to it. Most importantly it does require alot of work, so work hard at it. Remember. . . you get back what you put into it so dont cheat yourself. I know you can do it and I will not give up on you.
To your success,
