Why Quit Your Internet Business After Just 90 Days?

What a strange title for an article. I thought I needed to write this short article for the people who believe that they can not build a business online. I am here to tell you that is the farthest thing from the truth. What you need is just to take a deep breath, sit down in a quite area and think. Think about the reason you wanted to go into business. What was your why? Meaning what drove you to take the time, search the internet, looking at all those different business offers that said they could make you a six figure earner, pay your money and end up here at this point?

Now it is 90 days later, you have not made a dime and you want to throw away that investment. Are you crazy or have you just lost your mind? There are 25 year old kids on the internet that have become millionaires. If they can do it, so can you. So let us take a moment to analyze this situation. What is the difference between you and them? What made them successful and you want to quit after 90 days?

Could it be that your why, meaning your reason for getting into business was not large enough to keep you through the hard times? Possible no one told you that your why has to be big enough that you would die for it. For some people their why is the dream of putting their kids through college, so they can have a better life than they had. Some want to buy there single mother, who struggle to raise them, a house. You got the picture? Now maybe you need to sit down get that pen and paper and start over.

So you have your Why. This becomes your Dream or vision for the future. You need to put a date and time on it. Meaning in five years I want to accumulate $100,000 dollars. Now that you established that, you have to break down into small goals, one year, even to one month. Do not worry, the how will come if this is your true goal that you wish to achieve.

Next step after getting your goals set is to go over what made you chose the business that you chose. Was it the product, the commission plan or the fact that you have seen what the top earners in the company are making annually? Well you cam do the same thing. Start by calling them and asking them how they did. Most top earners are secure in what they have accomplished and have no problem with sharing how they did it because there success came from them modeling another successful person.

Most important is to establish your marketing plan. It is suggested that you set up a blog. This is your home on the internet and gives you a great opportunity to brand yourself. After setting it up you need to find ways of getting traffic to it. This could come in the form of Video marketing, Article marketing, solo ads, Viral marketing, etc. There is away of exploding your business on the internet: http://millionairesinaction.info

How I Ran a Home Business After I Lost My Job

I was told I would not be able to keep up a home business after I lost my job and no longer had the money needed to support my home business.

This was a painful truth as I crunched my dollars and I had to give up:

1. My webhosted WordPress blog

2. My AWeber email autoresponder account

3. My primary business because I could not afford the monthly autoship

What I did to Keep My Home Business

It was obvious that I had to switch gears. Having a multi-level marketing (MLM) business was out of the question I was not in a place where I could have another bill. All cash flow was needed to keep the family home, pay bills and food. So I did some research and this is how I ran a home business and made money and eventually was able to join a MLM company that had a product I used, liked and an autoship fee I could afford.

1. I started a free blog at Blogspot. This is not the best way to present that you are a professional in my industry but it was better than nothing. I consulted with some six figure earners in the network marketing business and was encouraged to, “do what you got to do.”

2. I signed up for every free webinar I could attend to pick up any golden nuggets that were given related to networking on and offline, traffic generating strategies, blogging and prospecting. All of the webinars had a product to sell and I knew I could not buy but each gave me some tidbit to work with.

3. I was introduced to a free marketing system. I still use it today. The system automatically syndicates for you any and all content you place on the system i.e. comments, blogging, advertising. I built a network of associates and have joint ventured on projects that still bring results today. Whether money for marketing is an issue for your home business or not I recommend you check IBO Toolbox.

4. I was worried because “your money is in your list.” I had to drop AWeber which I have since set up an account again. I encourage you to do the same as soon as you can. However when I did not have the money for an autoresponder I used the free version of Icontact. You can go to Icontact.com. I do not use Icontact as my primary autoresponder today because I like the features in AWeber better and I think the price is moreaffordable. It was important to have an autoresponder and set up an opt in box on my blog.

5. I set up a few business email addresses using Gmail.com

6. I made one investment I bought an eBook that helped me bring it all together.

Now I was Ready for Business

I set up affiliate accounts with several networks and advertised their products and services online using free ad sites which I searched in Google and using Craigslist. Here are a few networks and techniques I used.

1. ClickBank

2. Shareasale

3. Commission Junction

4. Paid attention to announcements on Facebook about Prelaunches and signed up if it looked legitimate and of interest to my list

5. Also learned about prelaunches via emails I received having signed up for different webinars and conference call trainings.

There are many more you just have to search in Google affiliate networks, or affiliate programs for example. My favorite is ClickBank been around a long time and is a trusted marketplace.

This is how I managed a home business. It was not the fastest way to build my list partly I believe is the stigma that exist about using a free blog, and the learning curve regarding traffic generation. I stuck with it and followed to the best of my ability what the winners were doing. If you are anywhere near the situation I was in you realize I had no choice but to be determined.

Where I am Today!

1. I have a WordPress blog hosted by HostGator

2. I continue to sell other peoples products/services

3. Using my favorite autoresponder system AWeber

4. Joined my primary business and love it.

5. Believe in the power of keeping myself trained and having a safe community of like-minded people to learn from.

Take Away!

A slow process but it all worked out. I learned a lot, I contribute to my household again feeling proud. As I started earning with my business I slowly added to the business the systems and tools I needed to help me earn more and to perform task easily and freeing up time to spend with family. I hope you can see this for yourself.

Starting A Business After Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy can be a challenging and testing time for many people that go through the process. It can test everything from your patience to strength, but many people believe it has made them stronger on the other end. The fact of the matter is that bankruptcy is not the end of the road. In fact, many people would argue it is the beginning to a hopeful future filled with promise and success.

There is a common myth that people who have been through bankruptcy are not able to start a business in the future, but this is simply not true. If you are looking to start a business after going through bankruptcy, know that it is possible. But while it is feasible and practical, it is important to understand and prepare for the obstacles and challenges you will face.

Be Realistic About Your Situation

The biggest piece of advice would be to stay realistic. It is almost guaranteed that you will face problems when looking for credit and financing. The best thing to do is to think about it from the other side. If you were the lender, what would make you willing to give credit to someone who has a history of bankruptcy? If you can put yourself in this mindset, you are much more likely to be able to convince a lender that you are able to run a profitable and successful business.

Some practical things you could do to improve your chances of receiving credit from a lender could be finding private investors to fund some of the venture, developing a detailed business plan, and partnering up with people who have a history of good credit. All of these things show a lender that you are set up for success.

Separate Yourself From Your Business

In order to take your idea and turn it into a functioning business, it will be important for you to separate yourself from the business and your history of bankruptcy. If you were a sole proprietor or partner, it is quite possible that you were forced to file for bankruptcy because of business debts you incurred. In the future, it could be a good idea to set up a corporation or limited liability company (LLC) to separate your personal responsibility from the business.

A second thing to note is that you will need to apply for and obtain a new tax identification number in order to setup your new business (That is, if your previous business was a sole proprietorship and was liquidated under a personal chapter 7 bankruptcy).

Be Smart and Have a Plan

There is much more to starting a new business after bankruptcy, but remember these two things: have a realistic plan and separate yourself from your past. If you can learn how to do these things, you stand a much better chance at starting that new business you are looking to get off the ground.
