Setting Your Online Business Up For Success!Written by Charles
There is a common misconception that an "online business" requires no investment...that you can make money online without spending any. When we hear this from people who are desparately trying to build a successful online business it makes us angry! We believe misconception is primarily due to all of hype and false promises that arrive daily in our inboxes. Emails promising us that we can make millions of dollars with no financial output while we sit at home and do nothing. It's insane and it's not truth. The truth is that you must treat an online business just as you would a business in conventional world. You must plan on investing time, money and effort to ensure your success. The good news is that your investment in an online business will be MUCH, MUCH less than that of a business in conventional world. With an online business, there are essentials that you must have in order for your business to run smoothly and become successful. You can literally run an effective online business for $100-$200 a month. Later in this article, we will show you how you can access many of these essentials in one place for less that $10.00 a month! But first... Here are six essentials that you MUST have to run your online business. 1. Your Own Website This includes a domain name and web hosting for your site. You must have a central place to send your customers, even if you are selling multiple products or services. 2. A Professional Autoresponder An absolute MUST for any online business. If you're not using an autoresponder, you're losing money! That's bottom line. Your autoresponder should have ability to create subscriptions via email and web form and should be a professional one with no ads! Fr~e autoresponders look unprofessional and they are not reliable. 3. Ad Tracker This is probably most underused tool that we know of. Consider this - most people who are NOT making money on Net have never used an Ad Tracker. Yet, ALL of people that we know who ARE making money on Net - use one daily. It makes no sense to spend money and time on advertising if you're not going to be able to determine which ads are producing and which ones are not. An Ad Tracker will solve this problem and save you time and money in long run.
