In this article I will share a lot of links with you that I found helpful because for me findingrepparttar links and sorting through them isrepparttar 116890 most time consuming project in setting up an online business. The first step is setting up your website. If you are in Multi-Level-Marketing,a lot of companies provide you with an affiliate website. If this option is not available to you, you must find a website that that will sell you a domain name and host your domain. I recommend for very reasonable rates. When choosing your domain name pick something easy to remember that says a lot about what you do right away. Next you can find free templates for you site at and you can?t save more money than that! If you need help setting that up, I recommend my favorite webmaster, Linda, whom you can contact at or find your own through a search engine. So now you have a website. The next step is promoting your website so that people will know about it. You can use traditional methods to start with. Get business cards printed with your website on them and give everyone. You can do this for free at and choose from a color printed card selection and only pay for shipping and handling. Why not save money where you can? You can create flyers about your product and/or services and create tearoffs with your website on them. Of course, you can also call all of your friends and family and tell them to visit your website or better yet send or give them all cards. These traditional methods only get you so far. So now it is time to hop online and sort throughrepparttar 116891 vast sources of promoting your site overrepparttar 116892 internet. The bad news is that it can be time consuming. The good news is that I will help you sort through allrepparttar 116893 options. The really good news is how very rewarding it is when you get your online promotion running. So if you get on a search engine like and type in traffic or advertising you will be overflowed with links. First let me tell you what I avoid. To me allrepparttar 116894 promises of guaranteed traffic are a waste of time. A lot of those companies just use pop ups or other methods of gettingrepparttar 116895 visitors but since they are not really trying to reach your site, they probably won?t stay there. Also, email blasting is useless due torepparttar 116896 same principle.

You Want To Quit, Think Again

You Want To Quit, Think Again By: Michael Farley copyright: 2004

I hear about so many people that give up on so many things before it even had a chance. Why did they even start? Did they research to see how long it would take for their project to blossom? Most likely they did not.

Let me briefly tell you a story. After High School I went immediately intorepparttar U.S. Marines. Aroundrepparttar 116889 Fifth week at Parris Island during bootcamp I wanted to quit. I went to my Senior Drill Instructor and to his face I said I wanted to go home. What he said and did duringrepparttar 116890 next 5 minutes changed me, Wellrepparttar 116891 entire 3 months of bootcamp changed me, LOL. Seriously though, He told me that he was not giving up on me cause I had more potential than anyone he had seen and he was going to forget we had that conversation. He refused to let me quit. I thought afterwards why had I given up, no one else had given up on me.

I gave up because I was looking atrepparttar 116892 now (the pain, homesick), You know allrepparttar 116893 negative things. Had I quit I would have missed out on so much in life. I traveled to 7 different countries. My college was paid for. I get many benefits as a veteran now, etc.

The same applies to your Online Business. We look atrepparttar 116894 now and quit. You think that no one is paying attention to what you have done so you quit. The website is shutdown and thanrepparttar 116895 advertising you did,repparttar 116896 people you thought were not paying attention and many others come to your site for your services and you are gone. The money you could have made, you now will not make. The extra time you could have spent with your family and on vacations will not happen. The financial freedom, being your own boss (what I call true freedom) will never be. Why? Because you quit way too early.

You ask well I have not made any money in six months what am I suppose to do? The answer .. Before you started you should have researched to see what kind of demand was in for your business. Set a schedule up for your business and stick to it. (ex. follow a daily schedule and set aside 1 hour for emails, 2 hours for advertising, etc.) The Internet is full of easy tools for building websites and you can find people that will help you. You have got to continue to advertise, build up an opt-in list. These people will become your support, customers and some may become your business partners through Joint Ventures. If you have did everything possible and still are not getting any sells. I would say take a close look at what you got and see what is wrong. Then nothing may be wrong it could just be your market and you should try looking into something else.
