Your Home Business – Keep on Keeping On

Did you ever hear the saying ‘when the going gets tough, the tough get going’? That really says a lot. Whereas when things get tough, the less determined will hang back and allow discouragement to overcome their efforts to stay motivated. So instead of trying harder or trying something different when they don’t see any results, they will just stop trying.

hang in there!

It’s very hard to come back from this place, but it can happen. It may take a different set of circumstances to become motivated again. It may be a different time – a week or month or even a year from now. It may take a big change in your life such as the loss of a job, or even a change of heart – maybe you just see things a little differently for some reason. If you are really serious about your home business someday, some way you will revisit the idea.

Another saying comes to mind with regard to this, and that is ‘don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater’. So in this context it could mean that even though whatever you tried to sell, or however you tried to sell it didn’t work, instead of throwing the whole idea out as ludicrous, try to see it in a different way. You may be amazed at how just a few ‘nips and tucks’ to your plan can make all the difference in the world.

It may just be that you chose a product that you personally liked and as it turned out you were not able to find enough people that agreed with you. That is why it is best to do a little research to find out what people are after. What are they buying? You may be able to find out in different ways but the simplest one is to run queries in the search engines online to gain different perspectives.

For example ask ‘most searched words on google’ and you will find ‘Trends’ and links to sites like http://www.searchenginewatch.com which right now is discussing how mobile advertising is all the balm – so that’s a real clue about how you might want to do things differently. This site has a whole bunch of interesting articles that will help you to say informed about Internet marketing and other things relevant to online home business.

If you apply these methods you can also be more direct with a phrase like “what are people buying online” – you will find several interesting sites that give demographics, etc. One of the very wisest things that was ever said was “Don’t choose a product and then look for a market to sell it to (uphill battle) – Instead find out what the market is looking for and give it to them” (much less resistance).

Developing an Online Home Business Start-Up Plan

Be open to all possibilities, and/or keep an open mind while you are formulating a plan on how you will set-up your online home business. Don’t get stuck in a box, at least until you can really try on a few perspectives as to what kind of a business you will have. Then you can determine what that would involve to facilitate as part of a viable home business plan. See what develops. One thing for sure is that there are multiple facets to most really dynamic businesses – whether online or offline. There are many things to consider as you will realize over time, if you are really serious about building your own online business. It can be much more than you can see right now.

get started!

There was once a song that had lyrics that included something like “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you get what you need”. So you may have a vision or an idea of what you think your home business will be, and along the way you may discover additional as well as possible alternative techniques and strategies that you would also want to consider including. In time, maybe even a long time from now, you may change course as to which is the best way for you to go forward. At any given juncture in your business development plan you could discover another facet for your business structure and thereby develop an additional stream of income. ‘One brick at a time’.

It is always important to sit down and make a list of your interests and skills, as well as your specific work experience. Really think about what you did at each job you had. What did you do well; what did you like the best. Think of that in terms of the big picture as far as what your actions directly contributed to as part of the business process in that company. This is important so that you know what assets you have to work with. Another resource to consider is the amount of time you have to invest in learning how to and then implementing your business operations procedures; and of course going forward consider how much time you can commit to being engaged in running the business on a day-to-day basis, as well as factoring in time for technical and maintenance functions.

You have to decide how you will handle everything and determine whether you can afford to get any help in the way of online admin/support services, website design, marketing and advertising, search engine optimization (SEO), traffic and list building services, sales and tax accounting. To tell you the truth it is best if you know how to do things for yourself if possible. So even if you can pay someone to do it for you, now or later, you should take control of your own business by knowing how to do everything yourself, not to mention doing it free if you can. In most cases that would be a pre-requisite because it seems most people try to start-up a home business when they have few resources in the way of money and sometimes even little time. So either way, you should definitely understand what is going on and what needs to be done so that you are in control.

To be honest starting up a successful online home business is not about how much money you have to invest, so much as it is about how serious, determined and focused you are in starting a real business that will pay you an income in the future. Remember starting-up is just square one. Many people are all fired up and ready to ‘byte the bullet’ (do whatever it takes to start a business); but then they don’t do anything else beyond set it up. They expect it to run itself and not cost them a single dime to operate.

Sometimes people expect everything for free yet they expect to make big money fast. They will be the first to pronounce the program a scam if they don’t see anything in a couple weeks or months. They will never acknowledge that they didn’t really take action and that is why nothing happened. They believe they really tried but what actually happened was a ‘half-hearted’ attempt and quit too soon because the only concern was that they were spending a few dollars on membership fees.

So the first thing you should determine before you waste any time or money, is if you are really serious; and then to be sure you would be willing to make sacrifices in making your online home business one of your top priorities over the long-term. Do you have what it takes to stay motivated on your own and to focus on your business without being managed (self-supervision)? These are important considerations. There is nothing to feel guilty about if you don’t, as not everybody is an entrepreneur, and it is just best if you know what you really will or won’t do to get what you want.
