|Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? The Beginners Guide To Online Selling
As a 40 year old high school teacher, I make an adequate salary and of course have my summers off! However, I continually watch every dollar I spend and worry about my retirement years.
Like most others, I have always dreamed of being wealthy and on my last birthday decided to finally take action. I would become an internet marketer!
Needless to say, starting a home business on the web was more difficult than I imagined. A few of the myths that I had to overcome:
Itís free to do business online!
While it is much cheaper than a brick and mortar business, there are still expenses such as web sites, hosting, advertising, and continuing education costs.
Internet marketing is easy!
After working in a tire factory for two weeks, I can attest that every other job I have done IS easy. However, I quickly discovered that although not manual labor, many bleary eyed hours were spent in front of my computer screen.It takes TIME and EFFORT.
You can get rich quick on the net.
There are literally millions of scams floating around that haul in big bucks-----for the SCAMMER. The truth is: there are no get rich quick answers to your problems unless you want to rob a bank.
So how did I build my
fledgling business? Here are a few of my strategies.
First, be honest. Donít sell products that you have not tried yourself. When someone asks a question, donít tell them what they want to hearótell them the TRUTH.
Second, only pick products to sell that interest you. The sad truth is most people donít like their job. Why then, would you start an internet business with a product you donít like or care about? You must have a passion for what you are doing or you will never be successful.
Third, donít quit! I canít tell you how many times quitting crossed my mind when I was struggling in the beginning. Perseverance ALWAYS pays off. Stick with it when your business is struggling, good times are ahead. Remember, knowledge is power. Study, study, and study some more until you are an expert in your field.
