Your Own Internet Business





The advantage of having your own internet business is that you can do it part time and from anywhere until you get on your feet. Most people have an hour a day to build contacts or post to a blog. Through the years you will build on static and dynamic content as well as professoinal relationships. The internet is a residual place where automated advertiser sign up or ad companies like google adsense give people the ability to make money even when not working which is the whole point of the online business. Personal branding and social media are also huge. Bring yourself to the table and sell your services, because everyone else is doing it. And finally the ability for you to promote your stuff in a residual way will make life much easier. So why do almost all internet businesses fail within the first hour? They do not work because people do not use all of these wonderful resources as tools. They are a means to the end and not an ends to the means. The hypertext is you friend and a valuable skill in the promotional funnel. Markets and trends are always where the money is. So you want to start a blog? Write about your favorite type of cars or ice cream. Those are really profitable topics. If you want to sell stuff take you skills to sites like ebay and have at it. Promote your passions, talents or whatever. Use your mind and always be on the lookout for new secret money making strategies.

Do You Have Business Class Internet ?





If you are in online business it is important to have multiple sources of Internet in case any one goes down for extended periods of time. It may be especially crucial to have cards to get the net off of satellites, live in a place with free Internet, have Internet on mobile devices like the iPhone, and any other conceivable way including having the net in house. The speed and effectiveness of connectivity are extremely crucial in what you can do with refined videos for instance and leave you competition in the dust. The bigger band width, faster, more powerful Internet is the key to business success. If your Internet sucks get something better.

Profitable Internet Business





There are many paths to online prosperity, but your success depends largely on your mind and how bad you want it. Lets look at some profitable online business models.

1. Social media site owner. In this model a person who can build websites and construct software and programs creates the next Twitter. The site gets buzz and traffic. In the case of My space and Face book the sites are powered by advertisements, charging for internal economy rights like app privileges and pretty much any way the market dictates. Twitter on the other hand arguably the most influential social media property on the net, is still looking for ways to build quality into the monetization. Basically the owner realizes that more good will come his way even if the site eventually goes down, because of his free contribution to the community. (This is the result of an actual market force.) This benefits Twitter in multiple ways, namely that it can choose its own biases. Twitter as a result is free from fickle advertisers and businesses that try to mold the Twitter brand.

2. Social media and blog site user. This model reflects programming your life into the matrix of the web. Sites like the Huffington Post, Perez, Mashable, Tech Crunch fall into this category. Basically they position themselves in the online media and communication frenzy, earn their stripes and rise to the top.


3. The secret marketer. These people exploit the systems with their cash flow secrets. They work behind the scenes, teach people stuff, and even help the big sites do better on the net. They focus on what is hot.

4. Auction expert. These people get and sell products online through sites, stores, and auctions. Doing this requires customer service, and communication skills, but pays well. Reputation is everything here.

5. Entertainers. These are people with YouTube shows or creating entertaining sites like the fail blog or lol cats. This is one of the most profitable online niche.

There are many more paths. Which path are you taking to build your own online prosperity? Do you have any ideas, tricks, tactics, or strategies that I did not mention?

Internet Business Fraud





The FBI has a really good page on Internet business fraud. It outlines the most common causes of fraud and how they happen. Auction credit card issues, fake governmental programs and non delivery of items top the list. Basically you need to be absolutely sure what you are dealing with is reputable. Google is a good place to start typing in the name and putting things like fraud, scam, or sucks after the word. I believe we must spread the word person to person about the scams so we all do not keep falling for the same things. What do you think?

Own Internet Business





Having your own brand and product is everything these days. We all know it is fun to make money with ads. Some people make six or seven figures a month. But in reality imagine if you have a product and other people are out busy promoting you. When you wake up you make a higher percentage than if you did the promotion. Also you do not have to compete in a saturated market as is common in affiliate and online product marketing. Secondly blogs make the most money sell their own line of wares. This has something to do with targeting, trust building, interest building, and sourcing. Thirdly if you have your own business you can focus your energy on development, marketing, and branding. If you are promoting something you are subject to restrictions, copy right, and many other issues from multiple parties. What are you doing to fly your own ship in online business?

New Internet Business





"If I do not push myself than someone else is going to push me"

Most people begin a new internet business with that in mind. Basically it is far easier to work for one self, than for other people given the fact that one knows how to build a home based buisness economy. Unfortunately most home based internet businesses fail because the people do not have a clue and never educate themselves in the countless online resourses and forums. The other reason the businesses fail is that people spend so much time distracted reading fake make money online sites and listening to music that they never just do what it takes. If you sit back and wait to learn without getting your hands wet you will never make it. Keep in mind that your first blogs, ebay shops, video channels or whatever will fail miserably. This is normal. It is important to always ask 'where is the money?' My best adsense niche site for cash made money on the first post. A successful piece of the puzzle works like that. It will create residual and continual results. I can then build on that site into other niches. Some successful and some not. The only stat that I pay attention to is the bottom line in adsense, nothing else matters. The average person may hate the ugly blog, its content, and laugh at its lack of traffic. But if I showed the roi value of the adsense ads they would really start to love the idea. In a similar way people hate my youtube videos but would love them when I showed them my now defunct site that got into the top 100,000 for traffic from it. I am not a genious just into marketing and business. See that is what it is always about. Just picking a thing that you are into then doing the things to make it successful rather than just doing things and camping out until the results will come say 10 years later. Anyone who is online long enough will become moderately successful. The question is do you want to be successful based on other's action or even more successful based on your own action, tactics and business plan. I choose the latter. What do you think?

My Internet Business Is...





Building a business online does take a lot of knowlege. Be it on Ebay or youtube the people who do it best have some way of what I would like to call tricking the system. Afterall just a content site with adsense, or just a few videos will almost never cut it. It takes something more like a business, tech, marketing, and branding savvy person to develop the systems of online business success. The principles evolve with the technology. Please tell us about your internet business.

Do You Have A Successful Internet Home Business ?





If the answer is no than here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Build up contacts, and friends get to know people.

2. Take info from people who readily hand it over to you. If they do not than study marketing to get this to happen.

3. Link up your web properties to increase traffic across them. Then link up to a sales funnel where your properties are the outside of the funnel into the conversion zone be it some product you get a percentage for or whatever.

4. Turn your passions and talents into money. Make a video or 2 million of what you do best. This can get you the much needed eyes, traffic and clicks.

5. Learn about ways to monetize your sites through advertisers, advertisements, and any other way.

6. Constantly self promote yourself and your links across the web. If you want to get famous in a funny YouTube video you made, make ten thousand more videos that hyper link back to this one video in the description. This will build up hits on the one video. You can do the same with blogs or anything else on the web. Use the tools for traffic.

7. Learn how to make things like lead generating and advertising more effective. If most people just passively do these things without the necessary skill they will fail generally because these things on their own are never enough.

8. Personal and niche branding are a very important piece of the pie.

9. Taking the time to always learn and try new things. This means checking out every social media site at least occasionally and spreading out a bit beyond Twitter.

10. Just realizing that most Internet home based businesses fail because most people lack the drive or the knowledge that it is important to do more with the tools than just post a few videos, or blog a bit than quit.

To conclude the tools are out there and are completely free for you to be successful from home. It is just a matter of making sense of it all. Learn from people who are more successful than you. Then learn some more.

Business Checking Internet





Many businesses are checking out the Internet wondering what it is all about. They use Digg, upload a video on YouTube, and have a Face Book profile. But what are they missing? What should they be checking out? The answer is their statistics, analytics, serp, earnings versus expenditure, what others are saying in search engines, their email and the list goes on. Obviously prioritizing is extremely important in online business. There are things that must get done and then there are things that are extra credit. Unfortunately things that impact the customer are no longer extra credit like customer service, after all social media and blogging evolved from forums about products. So by their nature if a product is not good people will vocalize it. Word will quickly spread then the business goes from a boom to a bust really quickly. What do you think is important to prioritize in Internet business?

Internet Business Banking





If you want to keep running the rat race here are the things to do:

1. Stick your cash into a bank

2. Rent at exorbant costs

3. Never try to create a business that has a personal account

So basically if you want to be successful online you need to create accounts for your properties. You will need to somehow remove your money from banks. And you must only rent if necessary and in a way that is very useful to you and your goals. In order to break the chains of society it is necessary to do different things with your money than what everyone else is doing. Then you will really have more bank. That is what they say.

The Most Important Part Of Any Sales Funnel





There are a bunch of ways to call for conversions from suggestions, to basically a terminal landing page sent in the mail box. Both have benefits and draw backs. Both are also diminishing in their overall value. Why? Because the act of selling stuff destroys your brand. Why not give people something for free. Then have them spread word about how trust worthy you are. That way when you publish your book or develop your product, you will have people there to promote you and spread the word rather than criticize you for trying to sell people stuff. Just a thought.

Internet Cafe Business Plan





If you want to generate leads through social media than you have better read this post. The single most important thing that you can do with people is to contact with them and get their email information. Not only do they need to give it to you but also tell you what they want specifically and when they want it. This way you do not risk your reputation putting things out in front of people.

Secondly you need to have traffic for the sake of traffic. Marketing goals are important but often looks better with heavy social traffic. This is the widest part of the sales funnel and the general capture stage.

Once you have done the previous two things of grabbing traffic and getting emails the next step is active bi weekly communication. Basically send out a news letter every 3 weeks or so that has a clear beginning and an end. Basically you can do the news but also have a second opt in news letter that is informational. Finally after about half a year you will send out the automated letter than requests the 3rd opt in. Then you will market to people with basically good or services that adhere to their needs and expressed desires. At best your suggestions are just that.

But it may be more important to just communicate even at the bottle neck of the sales funnel. What do you think?

Where Is Blogging Going





The rise of social media has put blogging in jeopardy. But for the people who need to say more than the Twitter space allows will continue posting their digital foot prints in blogs. Blogs will continue to be a vehicle for brand building, and obtaining from contacts. The pro bloggers will continue to be spawned from people who actually stick with it and learn the game. Marketers will continue to milk search traffic to drive sales. People with businesses will continue to use blogs to get traffic into their site. There will be a resurgence of personal, artistic, and other niche type of blogs to launch careers. If you want to succeed start a blog. Stick with it.
