==== ==== You are just clicks away from your solution http://tinyurl.com/6o7py8t ==== ==== What is your goal? To make money online? Well it just depends on how much you want to make. Whether it is a small income to just get by or whether you are going to run an online business turning a large income to replace your present job or to retire and spend time with your family or take vacation or whatever suits your fancy., How successful you are depends upon a number of factors: The purpose of your business: expected turnover and income: whether you are going to build your own online business from scratch or work with an already established business; and how to sort out the good online business partners from the bad. If you aim is to make just a small income selling relatively low value items such as DVDS, Books and small electrical items then eBay is possibly the best place to start. The site is fully integrated with PayPal which means that you can ensure that you are paid before you send your goods to a customer via the post. eBay is a good place to start small but the growth potential is there though this may take a long time. If the purpose of your business is to earn you a living, maybe, replace your current job you need to consider two important things! Do I go it alone? 2. Do I work with an existing business?
Going solo can reap huge rewards but only if you know what you are doing. You need to ask yourself, do I have the technical skills to set-up my own online business, my own website, update it, maintain it, run it, operate servers, understand viral protocols, operate merchant accounts, deal with customer issues and what will you do when your beautiful online business crashes? Aside from all that you have to know who your potential customers are and how to market your business to them. Do you have these skills? You may well have all these skills but you must also consider whether you have the time and money to invest in getting this business off the ground and have the funds to keep the business running until it turns a profit. Don't be surprised if you spend 20 - 100k in your first year setting up and running your new online venture. Contrary to popular belief you cannot setup an online business for free! If you are really serious about making money online then it may be wise to partner with a company that is already making a success of it. Beware, there are many companies out there trying to get you to part with your money and give you nothing in return.
How to spot a bogus online opportunity:
1.Big income claims - you will not make 1000k in your first month
2.Fully automated - you should be able to talk to a representative of the company on the phone, by e-mail or face-to-face
3.Contact details - have they listed their contact details on their webpage. Have you called the number and checked that it is genuine?
4.Testimonials - What have other business partner said about working with that company. No testimonial no company.
5.What do you get for your money? - If you sign up to partner in a business opportunity what tangible (real) product or service is that business offering?
Real online business opportunities will offer you some or all of the following:
1.Income statements - These should be able to be verified. How do you earn money with this company?
2.Investment - there should be a number of levels at which you can invest in the online business opportunity
3.People - Do you have a company representative who you can talk to? Someone who is there to give guidance, set your expectations, help you define your business and personal goals. The company should assist you not sell to you.
4.The Company Online System: This should be a fully integrated and personalized online marketing and customer management system that allows for detailed traffic, lead and sales tracking capabilities. The system should be supported by a professional call center to assist in closing member product sales.
5.You should be offered Training - This may take the form of comprehensive video training library. Explaining about marketing plans for variable budgets and levels of experience and as your experience grows you should be offered Master Marketing Programs that teaches a combination of traditional and contemporary Internet marketing techniques. Ideally this should be supported by weekly educational webinars and tele-seminars coupled with daily entrepreneurial and mindset training. You should also be offered to meet other members of the business at events such as Live Master Marketing Events and if you are a success the be further developed with business leadership programs
6.Online Business Support - Your online business partner should offer you email, phone and live chat support as well as professional outsourcing and virtual assistant services and personal marketing mentors to help drive your business and achieve those all important sales Excerpts from Ezine Articles ==== ==== You are just clicks away from your solution http://tinyurl.com/6o7py8t ==== ====
