Money- Some Want More and Some Need More!
Yesterday I did part one of, How to make money on the Internet Now, because I am working on a book that really helps people who want to make some extra money online, or even people who have no income now and want to explore some business opportunities.
There are so many ideas on the Internet that you could spend so much time doing research that you never start anything. As stated in Part I, if you are going to make money whether on the Internet or off the Internet you need the basics. The first thing you need is a product to sell or a service to offer, and secondly, you need to let people know about it. In other words you need to advertise or get the word out.
The best domain name or the best business name does not guarantee that you will make a dime. How many of you in the early days of the Internet were told that you can make money while you sleep? That is true because on the Internet you are open 24/7, however, if people can’t find your business or don’t need what you’re offering, you will make zero dollars and zero cents. Even if you have the best domain name ever, even if you purchase all the “dot coms,” “dot nets,” “dot biz” and all the other “dots,” to make money you must follow some fundamental principles, two of which I have already given you.
If we go deeper and examine those two things (have a product/service and advertise), we find out that we do not have to spend time reinventing the wheel. Here’s something to think about, If a wheel is available spend time figuring out how many ways you can use the wheel. That means, one way to get started is to start with products or services that already exists, that already have the credibility and name recognition, provide training, and have a small start up cost.
It is funny how people will throw thousands of dollars at what smells like a scam, and yet can’t pay $100 to start a legitimate business. The other side of that is that some people don’t want to invest anything to start their business. Be prepared to invest something.
I mentioned Mary Kay that is running a special promotion in April. You can start your business for half the regular price, which is less than the price of a full tank of gas in many areas. Go to the Mary Kay website and get the information for yourself, then get started today.
Then there is Avon. Nearly everybody has heard about Avon. My mother used to sell Avon. Again, you make a small investment to start your business (expect to invest something). That’s another company that already has the name recognition, the credibility, the advertising, and the products, and for what they say is “little more than the cost of a lipstick,” you can get started.
There is Tupperware, health/diet systems, jewelry, travel, or even franchises that are available.
The important place to start is with the business model that best suits you. That is critical because if the model does not suit you, you are not going to put the time in and you will most get the desired results. In Part III we will look at the other end of the spectrum. There is no “wheel” invented, and you have to invent your own wheel.
