"Six Essentials you MUST have in place for your online business"

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 believerepparttar misconception is primarily due to all ofrepparttar 122476 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 notrepparttar 122477 truth.

The truth is that you must treat an online business just as you would a business inrepparttar 122478 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 inrepparttar 122479 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'srepparttar 122480 bottom line. Your autoresponder should haverepparttar 122481 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 probablyrepparttar 122482 most underused tool that we know of. Consider this - most people who are NOT making money onrepparttar 122483 Net have never used an Ad Tracker. Yet, ALL ofrepparttar 122484 people that we know who ARE making money onrepparttar 122485 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 inrepparttar 122486 long run.

The Perfect Network Marketing System!

Written by Daegan Smith

Network marketing is hard. Do not even attempt a home based network marketing venture unless you either have or plan on putting into place a highly potent and highly duplicatable network marketing system geared for 2005 and beyond.

Before I tell you what a billion dollar network marketing system should look like letís talk about what doesnít work. As Iím sure you probably know, network marketing is notorious for having a 95% failure rate. Letís talk about why.

Have you ever heard of Occamís razor? Basically it states thatrepparttar simplest explanation for a phenomenon is usuallyrepparttar 122475 best. Weíll use this theory to explain why 95% of network marketers fail. Ready? Most network marketers fail becauserepparttar 122476 marketing methods that they are taught donít work 95% ofrepparttar 122477 time. Pretty simple right?

So weíre led to askrepparttar 122478 logical next question, what are most fledgling network marketers taught?

Well, I can only speak from my experience, but what I was taught was to buy and cold call leads. Now, Iím not going to say this doesnít work, but I will say is that after six months of cold calling leads for 3 hours a day with very little success this tactic doesnít work most ofrepparttar 122479 time. Donít get me wrong some people are very good at cold calling leads, but most people arenít. So what happens to most people after theyíve spend thousands of dollars on leads with very little success after six months? They give up.

Additionally, another factor contributing to why most network marketers fail isrepparttar 122480 leads they use. Why doesrepparttar 122481 type of leads make a difference?

Business opportunity leads are generic. The leads answer an ad that just asks them if they want to be financially free, or make money from home. Well, of course they do, but that doesnít mean they want anything to do with YOUR network marketing program. Whenrepparttar 122482 average network marketer calls these generic bizz opp leadsrepparttar 122483 leads donít know anything aboutrepparttar 122484 network marketerís business and forrepparttar 122485 most part really donít care. This leads torepparttar 122486 fledgling network marketer hearing a lot of NOís.

Hearing NO allrepparttar 122487 time leads to quite a bit of self doubt, both aboutrepparttar 122488 network marketers own ability andrepparttar 122489 validity of their association with their network marketing company. Negative feelings begin to harbor and as I said before eventuallyrepparttar 122490 network marketer gives up, usually with 3-6 months.

Thatís basically why 95% of network marketers fail if you asked me.

So how do we change this paradigm?

We build a Billion Dollar Network Marketing System! Now we get torepparttar 122491 good stuff! What does a perfect network marketing system look like?

Forrepparttar 122492 average home based network marketer to be successful certain thing MUST be in place. I will list them here:

ēLead capture page designed specifically for specific Network Marketing Company:

This page must contain strong sales copy that tellsrepparttar 122493 prospect why he wants to opt in for more information. The best way to do this is to offer a High Value Free Report in exchange for there contact information.

ēFree Report specifically designed for Network Marketing Companies Opportunity:

The free report must be highly informative. It must explain all ofrepparttar 122494 features and benefits of joiningrepparttar 122495 network marketing organization as an independent distributor and must focus onrepparttar 122496 support and resources available torepparttar 122497 new recruit should they choose to purchase a distributorship. The companyís products and compensation plan must be clearly explained here as well. If possible, testimonials should be used, as they are extremely powerful sales conversion tools in this portion ofrepparttar 122498 sale process as well.
