How To Make A Sure Profit From The Internet In Your First Month – For Those Just Starting Out & Working On A Shoestring BudgetWritten by Tukshad Engineer
Online Profits In 30 Days - Your Blueprint - A lot of people want to start earning an income online but have no idea how to get started. The following is a one month blueprint that you can follow to make an actual profit by end of your first month. This plan is designed to help you create both an immediate cashflow as well as building a powerful revenue stream that will keep on paying you months and even years down line.
Starting Out - Get Into The Right Frame Of Mind
Day 1 What you're considering will involve a lot of work and thought. Before even thinking about what business to start take some time to think about why you're doing this. What is your motivation for success? What will keep you going when things aren't going exactly as planned? Take a walk at a local park for a stroll and think of what you want out of your part/full time business. Is it purely financial? Is it so that you have a second income? Are you fed up with your job and want to be your own boss? More time with family? Write down your goals clearly and be as specific as possible. Include as much detail as you possibly can - try and evoke your emotions so that when you look back on it (at least once a week) it will act to motivate you. Remember that there will be times when you feel fear, frustration, hopelessness - that's ok - important thing is to keep focusing and working hard. If you do this you will discover success in end.
Wherever you wish to do this, find a nice quiet place and write down what you wish to achieve from your business and how much time you feel you can dedicate to it. Be realistic - if you have only 2 hours a day perhaps all you're looking for is an extra $500 or so a month. If you have much more time you can expect to earn something close to a good living from your efforts.
When you're all set buy a special business notepad and keep it with you always - you'll discover that often ideas will come at you in most unlikely of places - in shower, on train, at work, playing football....anywhere. It's important to jot down your ideas as and when you get them for later review - you may think you'll remember it later but chances are you'll lose them forever unless you write them down.
Brainstorming Ideas –
Day 2 Now here's where you're going to decide exactly how you're going to earn a living online. I am going to show you what has worked for me - which isn't to say it's only thing that can work - it's just proven for me. For me there are 2 ways that I have used to make money online - first is Digital Product Creation. The internet has created millionaires out of people who simply wrote a good information product which filled a demand. Not a writer? You really don't have to be. You simply need to be able to get your ideas and knowledge over in an easy to understand and informative way. If you're convinced that making your own products isn't your thing then second method is for you - Reselling Existing Digital Products For Commissions. This is lazy mans way of making cash online. It's not easy but it does mean you do not have to spend time creating a product/website/adverts - it's all done for you and tested. The only thing you need to focus on is getting in customers and there are some very powerful ways of doing this online. Lets look at product creation first. We will then look at selling resale rights products in future days.
Info Product Creation
So what should you create an info product on? You need to do some research to find something to create your info product on. To help you decide consider following: Is there any subject that simply thrills you? You can't stop talking about it and you find yourself reading about it constantly. When there's a TV show on it you simply lap it up. It could be a hobby or something you have just developed over years. Perhaps knowledge of something that has been handed down to you from your father. Simply put, anything you know a great deal about. If answer is yes, chances are there are other people who feel equally strong about this topic as you do - and who will be prepared to pay to tap into your knowledge on this subject. I always feel it's important to do something you would enjoy but it's also vital that a market really does exist for your chosen subject. For example "football" is a very popular subject and is an excellent potential market. However if your passion is studying nesting habits of pigeons, you would be hard pressed to find enough interest to make creating an info product worthwhile. Think about what right product is for you - everyone has in depth knowledge about a specific topic - what is this for you? Cooking? Films? Music? Golf? There are endless potential products for each of these topics and endless others.
Dealing with BackordersWritten by Chris Malta
"Dealing with Backorders" It's going to happen. If you're selling on Internet, there are going to be backorders. As I write this, I have just finished dealing with a backorder situation, and steam is still rising from my ears. By now, I should be used to it. I shouldn't let little things get to me. It's not supplier that I'm upset with. It's customer. Let's start from beginning. A couple of weeks ago, I handled an order for a Conair Digital Blood Pressure Monitor. As usual, I emailed order off to Conair supplier with several others. Later that day, I received a phone call from Conair supplier. The BP monitor was out of stock, but was expected within 10 days. Did I want to place product on backorder, or cancel order altogether? Also as usual, I told supplier I would get back in touch with them after checking with customer. Since customer was located in Orlando, it was a local call. I called his house. I identified myself, told him that I had received his order, and that I was very sorry, but product had just run out of stock, and was expected to be available again in 10 days. I told him I had not yet charged his credit card, and would cancel order if he preferred to go somewhere else. You would have thought I had just told him that I was planning to strangle his cat. He got upset, and I could just hear his face turning purple. Small wonder man needed a blood pressure monitor. I'll spare you details. It came down to this: he thought that I should give him free shipping for his inconvenience. I stuck to my guns, and politely told him that I was not willing to do that. He had placed order only hours before, and I had not yet charged him. He finally agreed to wait for product, but said he would be watching calendar. I knew I had a "trouble customer" on my hands. (Imagine "Twilight Zone" theme music playing at this point). A week later, when I got another call from Conair distributor saying that factory shipment had been delayed further, I braced for impact, and contacted customer. I'll spare you details of that exchange as well. There may be small children present. I managed to keep calm, although I was boiling at this point. Again I offered to cancel order. He refused, saying that he had waited this long; he might as well wait it out. The BP Monitor showed up at distributor two days ago. They were considerate enough to ship it to customer by FedEx 2 Day Air at no extra charge. (My Conair distributor is great!). It will arrive at customer's house today. I was quite happy. Then I checked my email. Another blistering tirade from our over-pressured friend. I wrote back, calmly and politely, and told him he could expect his order in a matter of hours, and I was sorry that he was unsatisfied. I haven't heard back from him, and probably won't.
