Six Months Is Not Enough To Make Home Business Start To Work

Aug 17, 2007
A home business start is not a speed race. It is not a race at all. It is a process to educate yourself on how to run the business. In six months a new entrepreneur can learn only the basics.

I warn you. Be careful in your home business start. Most people are too excited and will spend the money into promotions they do not understand anything about. And even worse, they will loose the motivation. And the motivation is the most valuable feature of every home business starter.

If a starter will run promotions only when some overpromising ad says so, the potential to loose money is close to 100 %. Internet has tons of total scam programs and advices from unfair and unprofessional people.

When planning the home business start, the key is to select a long term and stable marketing company, with at least five years experience online.

Another feature must be the growth. Only growing businesses are good businesses. The growth comes from new people joining the program, which means good sales forecast for a starter.

Make sure that the selected program has wide sortiment of tools to generate leads. Customized web site, banners, text ads, emails, autoresponder for automatic follow up etc. To be effective in home business start from 3 to 4 different ways to generate leads is needed.

It is good to run promotions in many online niches, the more the better. However entrepreneur´s time and skills will set the limits.

Every new business will need a marketing plan. Remember that you are the one and only tool for the business.

So plan what you have experiences of and what you have learnt about home business.
Every action must be fully understood. Do not run anything only because somebody says so.

My experience is that a home business starter cannot accomplish anything in just six months. Most of the time must be spent into educating yourself on online marketing and the program selected. Normally it will take from two to three years to make a home business start successful.

Online business is a severe business, like studying in a high school. There is no shortcut. You just have to learn the business. Period. So I would say instead of six months, it will take sixty months to make home business start really work.

Pick a home business company, which really can support you with rapid and professional online support, training and discussion forum.

Set the goals, which keep you motivated. The goals cannot be like how much money you should earn. In the home business start the question is not of the income but about learning. This means that the goals must be what to learn in this month, for instance.

The most important goal is to learn to make a marketing plan. That requires that you will understand the big picture and also the details. The long term actions and short term ones.

The plans can be finetuned when more experiences are in hands. Then the plan will be more and more taylor made for you and your skills.

And when the day comes when the web site will get enough visitors and buying customers, you will thank yourself about studying and making the plan properly.
