What should I sell or promote?
What gets you excited, what are you passionate about? Knowing the answer to these two questions will help immensely when deciding what to do for your business.
When building a business based on something we already enjoy talking about and that excites us we are already well on our way to being an authority on the topic. The more that is known about something the more of an authority you will be for people to seek advice. You want to be that person who knows more than others.
A benefit to knowing more than the average person about a product when starting out will save a lot of time because already knowing helps to start earning money sooner. I want to share with you something I had made the mistake of doing when I first started online. We hear so much about people making millions of dollars online and we tend to lose focus as I did. Here is a little secret about earning money online, if everyone follows this rule of thumb there is no reason why everyone couldn’t make millions. Here it is Stop thinking about earning money online… When all focus is on the money we lose sight of the most important aspect of a business which is to provide a service or product someone else needs. Make a promise to me and most importantly to yourself, focus on helping others and when you do that I promise you will make a very good living with your online business.
To me being able to help others is the biggest reward and the money is just an added bonus. So please create for others and enjoy the bonuses after the fact.
What to Avoid When Starting An Online Business
First off I hope I can help the avoidance of experiencing some Wolves in Sheep’s clothing online. There are so many Guru’s and know it alls online that have made a living out of conning good people out of their money with promises of making tons of money online in just a few weeks or months if you pay them lots of money they will give you all the secrets to making millions online.
They will tell tales of riches they have made in just a short time and they will send links and emails to websites showing off fancy cars and big houses promising you could have the same result in just a few weeks.
I am here to inform you of my own experience and maybe you have your own story like this to tell, every one of these con artist’s is the same. They all lure us in with dreams of making it rich with little to know work. It’s not true, they are the only ones making money as soon as we pay for all their Hype.
I have learned from experience not to pay for anything without being able to test drive it first. Do you pay for a car before you test drive it? No! Never give anyone money who promises you the world. Any legit offer will let you try the product or service before you pay.
If you take anything away from my website today please try to avoid what they call the Shiny Object Syndrome “SOS” We have all fallen victim to it. It’s used in all types of marketing and it is very effective in getting your attention. You need to learn to avoid this, as you may have already experienced many types of SOS marketing tactics.
You will not find it here on my site and I have been involved in an online business community that teaches and helps teach others to avoid SOS and other fraudulent offers online.
Learning to look out for SOS and other fraudulent offers online will save you a lot of time and money. I am giving my honest word about this and I only know because I have been manipulated multiple times online trying to find an honest way to learn how to build an online business.
It took me a few years and who knows how much money to learn what to watch out for. I had found the right place to learn and it is a no Bullshit community.

Meat and Potatoes of Starting An Online Business

The following paragraphs will explain the answer to the burning question that brought you to my website today, How long does it take an online business to be successful?
Honestly, the answer to that question is up to how motivated you are to get going. I can tell you from my own experience, I jumped in both feet and put in a few hours every day and within 3 months of training, researching, and following step by step training courses that show how to build a website I had gained momentum and started to see steady traffic to my website along with conversions (clicks to affiliate product). What I want to emphasize is that I was working in most of my free time to learn as much as I could in a short time.
Before starting with my first online venture I absolutely had no knowledge of building a website or what it took to generate traffic and sales. By putting in the time I feel confident in my knowledge and it is Partly the reason I have developed this site so I can pass on the treasure trove of information for those who want to find answers about starting a successful online business.
Having the Right Resources, Training and Support
Having the right resources, training, and support will help when getting started. The most important things that successful online business owners all have in common are persistence work schedule, setting daily goals, and providing top quality products or services to their customers. I have been fortunate enough to find the right resource community that has helped me tremendously in the past 9 years to go from not knowing much of anything to being able to share with many who are looking for the answer about how to start an online business and what it takes to be successful at it.
To sum it up, it comes down to the effort. How long it takes to have a successful online business varies from person to person because not everyone has the same work ethics. If a person works only a couple of hour a week it will take them much longer than the person who works a few hours a day on their business. The real Go-Getters are the ones who see much more success for the simple reason that they put much more time and effort into their work.
The conclusion is How Bad do you want a successful online business
I have touched base on some of the key points of a successful online business, to bring this to a close I hope this has been of help explaining what is important and how long it should take for an online business to be successful. Go-Getters about 90 days give or take. Remember you will get out of your business the effort you put into it.
Ask yourself how bad do you want to have a successful online business so you can quit your day job and have to to spend with your family or traveling or whatever it may be that you want.
