The Mountain Highs & The Valley Lows When Starting A Home Based Business

Written by Kirk Bannerman

Continued from page 1

Highs and lows were something that I began to notice when I first started a home based business. I have many years of top level management experience in “traditional” corporations and have experienced lots of business cycles (corporate “ups and downs”), butrepparttar natural “ups and downs” that occur in a home business (particularly inrepparttar 117235 early stages) can be emotionally brutal if you don’t prepare yourself in advance forrepparttar 117236 fact that it is a basic law of nature…it will be a rocky road until you have spent enough time and effort to build your business to a level that sort of smoothes outrepparttar 117237 peaks and valleys.

The impact ofrepparttar 117238 high and lows you will probably experience in developing your home based business is amplified byrepparttar 117239 fact that you are now in business on your own You arerepparttar 117240 boss and get to make allrepparttar 117241 decisions, but you are also on your own in dealing withrepparttar 117242 frustrations that will occur alongrepparttar 117243 way while you are developing your business.

The next problem will be e-mail. I won't go intorepparttar benefits of automating your business fromrepparttar 117234 start right now, but believe me this isrepparttar 117235 only way to go if you don't want to spend all day answering and sending e-mail.

Devote a certain amount of time in your day to deal with e-mail chores.

You should be spending most of your time promoting and advertising your business inrepparttar 117236 early stages and e-mail will intrude on that very quickly. So plan a certain time of each day to deal with e-mail and try to stick to it unless it's urgent.

If you receive your e-mail through an alias at your website and you haverepparttar 117237 option of sending an autoresponse to each e-mail you receive, then I suggest you set one up to say something like:

_____________________________________________________ Thanks for your e-mail. Your request has been received and you will receive a response within 48 hours.

Best wishes,

Your Name or Customer Support ______________________________________________________

Including an autoresponse likerepparttar 117238 one above will buy you some time so that you can deal with your e-mail chores at your pace, without irrate customers and prospects asking why you haven't sent an immediate response.

You would be amazed atrepparttar 117239 number of e-mails I get asking why a customer or prospect hasn't received a response torepparttar 117240 e-mail they sent two minutes ago.

So automation is vital. I use a combination of autoresponders and a PC based software that I have found to be priceless.

Once you get e-mail and time management under control, you will soon find your business running smoother and you will have more time to relax and enjoy being a successful business owner.
