|The 2 Great Myths Concerning Your Best Home Based Business!|
- Mark Williams (c)
Is there really a legitimate best home based business that can free you of your financial burden and provide you the lifestyle you only dreamed about?
Have you ever wondered if all of these marketing gurus are telling you the truth? Can they really teach you how to create a home based business that will place you on the path of financial security?
The answers to these questions are yes and no! First, let me say that many of these self-proclaimed marketing gurus are bogus and not to be trusted. There are, however, some real-proven online marketers that can teach you how to build your own home based business. There are too many of them to list in this article but you can visit my site at http://www.straighttalkonbiz.com and get more information on some of the top online marketers. The reason there is a no in the answer to the question is that it doesn't matter how good the course is if you do not apply the methods, then you can not expect to succeed.
I know that some people are not going to like that answer but sometimes the truth hurts! I have had people tell me that this did not work or that did not work. After I quizzed them some more the facts began to surface. It became evident that they did not apply the tactics right or worse, they didn't apply them at all. The marketing guru can give you the best information on the planet but if you are not willing to work then do not expect to succeed.
That leads me to what I consider to be the 2 biggest myths about online marketing.
BUILD IT AND THEY WILL COME!
The first myth on the internet is that you can throw up a web site and in a couple of months be rich. Magically, customers will start showing up at your site and buying your products by the thousands. Part of this problem is caused by all of the bogus scams and schemes that some shady online marketers use to try and convince you that you can make $30,000 in one month by implementing their business opportunity.
I can attest to you that there are people making $30,000/month on the internet, but it has taken them several years to get to that level. They have dedicated themselves to the business of online marketing and been persistent in their efforts.
START YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS AT NO COST!
The second myth is that you can build a profitable online business for no investment. Has there ever been a successful business built, that makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, for free? I think most of us would answer no to that question. You can not expect to be successful if you are not willing to make an investment in your business.
An internet based business is not any different then an offline business from the stand point of having some costs. I will grant you that most internet based businesses can be operated on a much smaller budget than most traditional brick and mortar businesses. However, there are still costs involved with an online business.
The most misunderstood concept "newbies" have with an online business is that they think just having a web site is enough! They are not willing to put in money into promotion. Without promotion, the chances of someone finding your site out, of the billions on the web are extremely low.
Remember that it takes some investment and time to create a successful business and it doesn't matter if it is online or offline. In order to succeed you must be willing to make an investment, learn the industry, and treat it like a business. One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they treat their online business like a hobby. If you do then I can assure you that you will never be completely satisfied with the results.
Make no mistake about it an internet business can be the best home based business you have ever had. It can provide you the lifestyle that you have only dreamed about and create your financial freedom. For that to be realized you must not buy into the 2 great myths of the internet. Lastly, remember to treat your online business like a real business and be willing to invest in it. I can guarantee you that if you do it will pay huge dividends in the long run.
Forget the "get rich quick" philosophy and plan for the long haul; you will be happy that you did.
