You’ve no doubt heard the saying ‘Haste makes waste’? It’s true sometimes and it is better to be ‘safe than sorry’. If we are not sufficiently logical in making our decision we could be wasting our time and money. There are junctures where you need to spend time to try to keep from making mistakes.
However once we get it rolling, we can’t be in a rush to see results. You need to do the time to develop your process and build momentum. If you are looking for results after putting out 1 ad or waiting 2 days, you are kidding yourself. You will need to keep advertising and doing the work even after you get that first sale. It takes preparation, maintenance, (effort) and patience (time)!
It is just plain silly for people to believe that somehow even if they have no previous experience in marketing and advertising online that they are going to be instantly successful. You must make a point of reading anything written by experienced Internet marketers that tells how they struggled to get off the ground and saw it through until they achieved the success they now enjoy.
Many people who are not realistic may make some attempt for a short-time to promote a business, but for some reason they can’t seem to understand it is not as easy as people can make it sound. This is only important so that you do not become discouraged right off and give up before you give yourself a chance.
Unless you have a list of existing customers and prospects, you will need to spend some time creating one as you go along. Don’t wait, start advertising as soon as you can. However understand that it is much easier to appeal to someone with whom you have at least name recognition.
Not everybody who sees an ad will respond. In fact only a few will. It is a lot like ‘finding a needle in a haystack’. You have to eliminate all the people who are not interested in home business and you need to find the few that will show an interest and respond at least for more information.
If you want to have a real online business that generates income, you can’t stop just because you make one sale. You must keep it up to find the second one and so forth. Your business may involve either one-time sales or if you are for example an affiliate marketer, residual income. While the latter lets you continue to earn income in the future from the initial sale, people may quit at some point,and you will need to find new sources of income. Don’t wait until you are fresh out. Be prepared for the inevitable to keep your business afloat.
