Why Your Internet Business is Like the Stock MarketWritten by Patty Gale
As savvy stock market investors know, chasing after one "hot stock" with possibility of bringing instant riches is not a wise idea. You know old saying, "Don't put your eggs in one basket". This type of thinking carries a high risk. If your stock goes up and you are smart enough to sell, then you've made money. However, if your stock falls, you just don't know when (or if) it will ever make a comeback.
With this idea of chasing after "hot stock of day", you might as well buy a lottery ticket. Diversifying your investment portfolio for long-term growth and stability is wiser of strategy. You invest your money over any number of stocks in different industries, thereby spreading your risk across group.
The same principle should be applied to your internet business. Many of us first arrived online with notion of building a really great website to reach masses in hopes of making a lot of money. We later found out that "build it and they will come" theory is just that, a theory. Oh sure, there are a few who have managed to create a nice income from just one or perhaps two websites, but even Amazon didn't turn a profit until 2001.
Unfortunately, most of us do not have unlimited financial resources. Many have given up, only to go back to either a corporate job or some other type of work in order to support their family. What they did not realize is that their internet business really should be treated like their investment portfolio.
