Helpful Hints For Getting An Online Business StartedWritten by Christine Evans
** Set specific goals, we all are in this to make money. How much money do you want to make by a certain date ... for example
** Set a reasonable time frame to accomplish your goal.
** Getting organized I use 3x5" index cards and an alpha filing system to know where I have been and notes such as:
*Name of Business Opportunity, Tool, etc.
*My ID number and Password for site if applicable *URL of my new affiliate website or website I want to check out later
*If it is a trial membership when it ends
*Any fees associated
*If it is a Business Opportunity I write on back of card any tools or special features. Initially I was putting everything in Favorites or Book marking it then when I went to organize I forgot what was so special about 15 sites there. *** I was on phone with one of my down line members and Gordon said 'wait a minute I'll find it' when I popped in with answer. He asked how I found it so fast to which I replied 'my little index cards'. You see Gordon had his own system he had been using for some time. Don't know if he has changed to index cards or not. (I kinda think he has).
** I purchased extra paper and an extra black ink cartridge for my printer. You will need to print out pages with information for future reference if you sign up for anything - even if it is fr.ee. To Print only in black ... go to "Start" - "Settings" "Printer" then to "Properties" "Advanced" area of your printer and have it print in "Grayscale" (no color only black ink is used). This will save you money. I also print in "draft" quality. ** I save those pages that are last page printed and have little or nothing on them so I can scribble on them. You will find that when you are reading some information an email address or url reference is made to something you want to check out later, well "scribble it down" or use an index card.
In Network Marketing, Do As The Romans Do!Written by Joe Featherston
Remember old saying, When in Rome, do as Romans do!. This is key for determining what affiliate program to sign-up with.
When I first started my business in Internet marketing, one of first things I noticed was quite a few affiliate programs do not last for every long. You put time and money into program, then all of a sudden company is not there anymore. That is why I initially signed up with Six Figure Income (SFI). They have a backing of 7 millions members, have been able to stay in business since 1985, and guest what! The top network marketers are members.
Look for clues!
When in network marketing, do as top network marketers do! This was case in point when I discovered Plug-In Profit Site. Stone Evans is one top network marketers and offers 5 top affiliates program. Not because he has too, but he has been in business long enough to know what programs are going to generate income. These programs are Six Figure Income (here they are again), MadisonDynamics, Internet Marketing Warriors, Push Button Publishing, and Internet Marketing Center.
