Mar 21, 2008
Did you know that it is easy to become better than 95% of those involved in any type of business venture? Well, this is true according to Norman Vincent Peale. This is true for you as well in your online home business.

There is a statistic that claims that 95% of those who start an online business will not be very successful, but the reason for this is that they don't succeed because they aren't willing to put in the time or work that is necessary to make it a success. There are so many who think that they should start seeing results within a couple of weeks, and when they don't, they quit.

You need to change your mindset if you want to be a success. Your business is not race, but a marathon. You will find that by developing a doable work schedule that you can adhere to over a long term. Write out your plan, how many hours will you spend writing articles, and how many will you write a day and per week? How much time needs to be spent on research, web building, etc?

When you begin to treat your business as a business, going to work every day, putting in your hours, accomplishing your tasks and goals, you will not only reach that 95%, but you will exceed it.

Here are a list of things you can do to run your online business successfully.

1. Choose a niche that you are interested in, one that you already know something about. If you aren't sure what that is, then write a list of things that interest you. Even if you don't know anything about the area you choose, really doesn't matter, as long as the interest is there. If you at least have an interest in your niche you will very quickly learn all the information you will need. Once you have your list, you break it down from there to one.

2. Next you want to determine if the niche you chose will be profitable. You will need to do a search relating to your niche, look to see if these products are being sold. Go to Clickbank and do a search amongst their affiliates to see how many related products are available and how well they sell. If products are being sold in your niche that usually means there is a demand.

3. Choose a good catchy name and buy a domain all related to your niche. Once you have your domain, you will be ready to run your business.

4. Next register with an auto responder site and then start building a list. If you have a good list, you may make approximately $1.00 for every subscriber, so plan your time for making this very important list. After all, the money is in the list.

5. Time to get your name, your brand and your articles out there. You are going to focus on marketing your site and product. Write several articles a day, make a signature file that will promote your niche. Visit forums that are related to your products making at least 8 posts on each forum, leaving signature in every post. This works very well for bringing traffic to your site.

6. Take step 5 and repeat it for every site you have. You want to get your name known and trusted. You are becoming an expert in your niche.

These great tips will assure your success in your online marketing business. Remember, this is not a get rich quick scheme, this is a business that will bring you ever increasing residual income for years to come.
