Below I have created a short list to make your on line business succeed.

1) Find a niche market

First you need to find a subject where you can build your whole business -be it a web site or newsletter- around.

If you know a lot about car insurances or hiking, create a web site around it and find an affiliate program that will pay you out a good commission.

Of course it's better to sell your own product, like an information product -or E-book. Information products sell great on line, and will certainly bring you good money.

How To Get What You're Worth Online

Written by Dale Armin Miller

I have a guideline that, if something produces one sale per year and costs less than my profit for that sale, then it may well be worth doing. In fact, that's part of my formula for marketing success: try everything you've learned about and that you can make up. I promote in many different ways; there's no one major method that most of my hits come from. And I'm always experimenting. (Good thing, because things keep changing online.)

But I have another guideline:

Ofrepparttar methods that are worth doing, do those that producerepparttar 117987 most amount of net profit usingrepparttar 117988 least amount of my time. (Just too brilliant for words, isn't it?)

And that's why you should hire a maid.


Success And Your Hourly Worth

Two questions:

What isrepparttar 117989 least amount of money you *want* to make, or make per week, or make whenever?

What isrepparttar 117990 largest number of hours per week or whenever you are willing to devote to earning that?

Divide your answer torepparttar 117991 first question by your answer torepparttar 117992 second question.

(Do it. Really. I'm not busy -- I'll wait.)

That gives you what I'll call "your hourly worth."

Now, chances are you want to treat that number, instead, as what you wish to make. That is known not as hourly worth but as a "wish." Here's how to make that wish into a reality:

Step One

Don't treat it as a wish.

Treat it as your hourly worth. Say "This is what that hour is worth to me." Not just once, but always, for everything on which you spend time. It's should be your answer even --especially!-- when someone asks what you charge.

If you do that consistently enough, and refuse any and all alternatives and naysayers, eventuallyrepparttar 117993 world will have no choice but to agree with you.

For example, I just bought a new computer. Do I have enough money to pay for it? Perhaps strangely, I think that question is irrelevant!
