5 Reasons Why You Should Choose An Internet Home Based Business

By: Joel Teo

Many people are overworked in their traditional jobs and try to get into a normal mlm program over the weekend and spend their time working real hard. However one reason why some of them fail in their offline mlm business is because they do not have enough time to followup with their prospects offline or they have no skill in promoting if offline.

Contrast this with an internet mlm program, with the right system, all you need really to do is to promote your internet home business and the system will do the followup for you. This article therefore will list five good reasons why you should start an internet home based business today.

Online lead generation

People start an internet home based business for a reason, to get more free time. If you look at a traditional home based business you spent a lot of time calling people and once you stop, your income starts drying up. Now contrast this with an internet home business. If you have spent some time and effort promoting your home based business website with articles and link exchanges, your leads will continue to pour into your business even if you went for a holiday.

Not only that but because these leads were generated online, this means that your target audience is internet savvy. This means that you can followup with them via email and internet messenging. Many people do not really recognise the significance of this. Let me explain, with email you can followup with people at all times of the day and you can choose the time and place to build your business. This boosts a lot more freedom over the offline systems.

Build trust online

Many offline mlm gurus have one thing to gripe about online systems, they say there is no chance for you to build trust and rapport with your downlines. Enter online autoresponder systems. If used properly, you can send a person welcome to every downline that signups with you and train and teach them about your business. You would want to spend some time writing a bit about yourself and explain to them how you can help them help themselves. The more trust they have in you after reading your emails, the better your upgrade ratio will be.

Presentation online

Many people love to bring friends to their houses and give them an offline presentation. How about if I told you, with the same effort that I would take to present a business opportunity to 1 person, I could do it with many more people at once? This can be seen in internet mlm programs today which have excellent flash presentations and allow your autoresponders to followup with them with emails telling them about the benefits of your internet business. So you have not only made an impressive presentation which is independent of your own presentation skills but have their contact details and can therefore followup with them.

Resources online

In any offline mlm program you see people buying all kinds of training materials. I went to one such presentation recently and saw people recording the training sessions on tape. Once again I want to enlighten you about the power of the internet. Since our target audience and market is online, we can access all our training resources online. Many internet mlm programs for instance have pre written ads that people can make use in their online advertising programs.

Real time tracking

If you read direct marketing campaigns some people run offline, they add a fake name on the mailer next to the number to call so that the marketing staff that take the call know which advertisements are working just by receiving calls. Contrast that with the internet advertising that internet mlm business owners can do. With proper clickthrough tracking facilities online, it is possible for instance to find out what time, what day and from which website your sales referral come from. This when combined with a fully automated sales system will enable you to ramp up your advertising campaign once you figure out what sales copy works the best to promote your internet home based business.

In addition, pay per click advertising offline is represents very targeted advertising. Your potential internet home based business signup is looking for exactly what you are advertising for so you have a perfect match. The closer the lead that you generate to what your product is, the better the higher the chances of the sale. Offline that is why you see many unit trust companies giving supposed "Free financial seminars" which are actually thinly veiled promotion attempts.

In conclusion, we have covered five compelling reasons why you should embark on an internet home based business. Take massive action today and spend lots of time planning your next 30 days into your internet business and start on the road to achieve financial mastery.

Hi Serena,

One of the things that you will need to be aware is that the internet business is a real business which will requires you to put in the time, effort and money to grow the business. If you are looking for a model that will enables you to get rich quickly, I will have to tell you that this model is not for you.

Before I explain to you the simple system which you can use, you must always be aware of the Time vs Money rule. If you are not going to have a lot of money to invest into your business, you will have to invest your time into the business. It will still be possible to start a profitable online business but it will takes more time if you are on budget.

Here is the simple system which will only requires you to invest US$50 monthly to build your own business. You will have to do some steps first before you even start to build your website. Please do follow the system below:

1) Find a profitable market that you want to base your business in

This is important as you will want to decide on the market that you want to base your business in. You will want to be in a market where people are willing to spend money.


2) Find a profitable affiliate product

If you are just starting out and you do not have your own product, you can start to promote other people's product first. You will earn a certain percentage of the sales whenever a customer purchased through your affiliate link.


3) Build your own website which will be a squeeze page.

This is the step where you will be spending the US$50. Below are average cost and the tools that you need.

-> Domain name: This will cost you around US$10 yearly

-> Hosting account: This will cost you around US$10 monthly

-> Autoresponder Account: This will cost you around US$20 monthly

This will enable you to build your own website and you can also start to build your own list of subscribers. Building your own list is very important as it will ensure that you will be able to follow up with your customers if they do not purchase the product when they see it for the first time.


4) Start writing and submitting articles daily

Once you have your website, the next thing that you will have to do is to let people know your website so that you can promote the product to them. You will want to write articles that are related to the market that you have chosen. You will submit the articles to the top article directories which will drive you traffic. This method is call article marketing.

One of the thing that you need to know is that the traffic from article marketing will be gradual in nature. You will have to write and submit articles consistently so that you will get a constant flow of traffic coming to your website. As you are on a budget, you will have to invest your time to get the traffic to your website.


5) Add more email message to your autoresponder to promote 2nd or more product.

You will want to promote the 2nd or more products to your subscribers who have already join your list. This will ensure that you will be able to leverage on your list and earn more from them. This will be the main reason why you put putting in effort to build a list and build a good relationship with them.


This is the simple method which you can use. But you must know that as this is a real business, you will have to be patience and give it some time to grow.

Funny you ask that questions, I was just reading about this this morning. Check below from Fox New, hope this helps:)
Census: Fastest Growing U.S. Cities Are in Suburbs
Wednesday, June 21, 2006

STORIES
?College Grads Chase Jobs, Culture to Big U.S. Cities?Census: Americans Moving to Rural Areas
WASHINGTON ? Elk Grove, Calif., wasn't even incorporated six years ago, and now it's the fastest-growing city in America.

Bigger, older cities are losing ground.

The Sacramento suburb grew by 11.6 percent last year, to 112,000 people, typifying the nation's appetite for open spaces, affordable homes and suburban living. Once a rural farming community, Elk Grove has given way to sprawling development, fueled by a short commute to Sacramento and local employers such as Apple Computer.

"Ten to 15 years ago is when the housing started coming in. That was followed by the businesses," says Janet Toppenberg, president and CEO of the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce.

Americans have been moving west and south for decades, and last year was no different. All but three of the 50 fastest-growing cities from 2004 to 2005 were in those regions of the country, with many in California and Florida, according to Census Bureau estimates Wednesday. The estimates were for cities with populations of 100,000 or more.

Click here to read more on the report from the Census Bureau.

Elk Grove was followed in the top five by North Las Vegas, Nev.; Port St. Lucie, Fla.; Gilbert, Ariz., and Cape Coral, Fla.

All five are suburban, and all have fewer than 200,000 residents.

"We have a pattern that is consistent across the country," said Hans Johnson, a research fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California. "Families choose to move to areas where they can buy more housing for less money and often with better schools."

Americans also are moving away from many of the nation's biggest cities, though the reasons vary with the cities.

People are following jobs out of struggling Midwestern cities. Others are leaving expensive Northeastern and Western cities in search of more affordable homes. And people are fleeing big cities everywhere in search of better schools.

New York remained the nation's largest city, with 8.1 million people. The city has added 135,000 people since 2000, but it lost 21,500 from 2004 to 2005, more than any other city.

Detroit, with its struggling economy, has lost 65,000 people since 2000, the most of any city. Philadelphia, which has lost about 50,000 manufacturing jobs since 2000, has lost 54,000 people during the same period.

San Francisco, with the highest real estate prices in the country, has lost 37,000 people since 2000, according to the Census Bureau.

The bureau issues annual population estimates based on building permits, housing units and other changes since its 2000 headcount.

States sometimes dispute those estimates based on their own calculations. For example, California officials estimate that San Francisco has grown by 22,000 people since 2000, rather than shrinking. But even if the city did add people, it did so at a much slower rate than cities in the center of the state, said John Malson, a research manager for the state Department of Finance.

"The housing market out here has gone nuts, especially in the coastal areas," Malson said.

"The Central Valley is still more affordable than the coast," he added. "A lot of people are moving out from the Bay area."

Most of the big cities that gained population were in the South, according to the Census Bureau.

In overall numbers, Phoenix added the most people ? 44,400 ? from 2004 to 2005, giving it a population of nearly 1.5 million.

New Orleans, an exception in the South, had already lost population before Hurricane Katrina. The city lost about 30,000 people from 2000 to 2005, setting its population at 455,000, the Census Bureau said in an estimate made before the hurricane scattered hundreds of thousands of people.

Local officials estimate that New Orleans has rebounded to about 221,000 people since the storm.

I need help finding a home based internet business where I work as many hours as i want. ? I am looking for Legit businesses to work for from home through the internet. Please yahoo family no scam sites. I really need to start working and suplement my income. I truly Thank you in advance for your help.

PS: I wanted to pass along a website that can help in researching legit home base businesses. It is http://www.ripoffreport.com

tybanks2008

Admin 26.08.2008. 20:44

There are a lot of businesses out there that you can work as many hours as you want. You just need to find something that interests you most and one that you feel you could have a good business with.

As far as your detailed message as for places to help research legit home based businesses, you can't beleive advertisements or blogs and reports from places such as "ripoff.com or watchdog or any other blogs where people go and post negative things.
Don't go to blogs because they don't distinguish if a business is legit, real or not. Especially "ripoffreport". These are places that negative people go to only to vent their flustrations on something that did not work for them. Usually these people are the ones who did not do what was needed to succeed in business because they didn't put the time or effort needed to succeed, or do what other's who "have" succeeded in that particular industry had advised them to do. They didn't follow the advice thoughrly. These blogs people go and post all these negative things that are usually 80 percent false accusations. They can't fess up to the fact of the real reason why they failed in business. Instead of standing up and admitting to what they really did or did not do, they try and pass the buck onto someone or something else to try and justify their failure. Basically to make them feel better and luer people away from what could of been a big time opportunity for them to do something with their lives. That's what blogs are basically about. So when searching for a business for yourself, look for yourself, not anyone else's. Talk to the people who are involved in the company "now" not then. The ones involved then and not now are failures that are only going to give you negative feed back and take it away from you. You need to be a leader not a follower. If your a follower of negative impact, your going to fail! That's not what you want to do. Businesses take time to build. The average time to build a business is anywhere from 2 to 5 years. Depending on how much work and effort you put into it. Most people quit under 3, because they gave up on what they could of had because the income wasn't what they wanted it to be. Instead of working their business and acheive what they wanted in whatever time frame it took, they throw there hands up in the air and quit, or get too much negative feed back from others just out to destroy their dream, then they quit and turn around and go along with what everyone else says and call it a scam or a fake or whatever. Don't let these people pull you into their lifestyle. They're unhappy people who didn't have what it took to succeed, not did they take the time and real effort into "building" a business. Same thing with going to blogs from the same places for purchasing an item or a service. Consumers do the same thing. Usually on these so called "reports" and things are usually from ex employees, or ex Independent representatives trying to "slaunder" a business because they failed or were fired from their own wrong doing. People do it all the time. Other "types" of consumers want pretty much everything for free, which doesn't happen. Or they want things that a company just can't do, or they were not communicating incorrectly to a company and didn't get what they wanted. So they turn around in anger and call things a scam or fraud or whatever to try and "slaunder" a company because they didn't get what they wanted. You need to look at the company and see if what you can do with it, not with what someone else did or didn't do. Every business is different and every business owner is going to make a different amount of money. Your income will not be the same as other business owners in the industry you choose.

Online Money making does work
When I evaluate a company, I look for these key points. Keep in mind, when I join a company, my #1 goal is to make money and to do it legitimately. I do not want to hurt anyone or rip anyone off. This is what I?ve learned and these guidelines will help you determine what company is right for you.

1. If you are not making at least 75% of the upfront commission when you make a sale, forget it. This means that you are doing all the work and the company and/or the person above you is making all the money.

2. If you have to have 1000, 10,000 or 20,000 people in your organization before you make any real money. DO NOT Join. Most people will NEVER get there.

3. If they teach you to hold home parties and invite all your friends. Run away fast.

4. If they have a sales pitch 2-3 times a day and only 2-3 training classes per week.

This means that the company is more interested in selling you than training you how to make money long term

5. If you can?t break even or get into profit with 3 sales, forget it.

6. If you can?t speak with the owners or the corporate office via phone or webinar,

Forget it. I like to know who I am doing business with before I will do business with them.

7. If it is a start up or in pre launch, forget. The chances of these companies becoming the next Amway is about as good as winning the lottery. At least with the lottery, you have a chance to win once or twice a week. You might as well go to Vegas and blow your money on a good time. At least you?ll have some great memories, see a great show and have a great meal.



These are not all the rules for success on the internet, but this is a great guideline to follow when evaluating an internet company. Use these guidelines to help you narrow down your choices for choosing a company that best fits yours goals.

After months and months of research, there is one company that stands out as the #1 Home Based Business on the Internet. The Top Rated Internet Company for Making Money is EDC Gold. EDC Gold gets a Gold Star for several reasons. It is the only company that gives you a real chance to make big money on internet. They pay out 100% commission. The owners work the business with you to ensure your success. The training at EDC Gold is worth the price of admission alone. The Marketing System at EDC Gold is the best. They have a marketing system that flat out works.

Is there any type of investment that I can start with as little as $50 to $100? Array

rasta baby

Admin 22.01.2009. 20:38

Hello,

To be honest, with $100, you cannot go too far in terms of investment. BUT there is something that you should know about ... It is called FOREX trading robots.

If you have not heard of a FOREX trading robot yet, then try looking for some on the Internet because these things may be the solution to your financial problems. The FOREX market is a financial market that deals with currency exchanges all over the world. Based on the strength of a particular currency, these values go up and down and fluctuate according to elements in the market, such as political, business, and economic factors. The FOREX trading robot is an application hat you need to install onto your computer that will do trading with this currencies right from your home.

All you need to start with this is a computer and an Internet connection. After you have selected and purchased a trading robot of your choice, you just need to pop in the installation CD and follow the simple instructions on the screen to get you ready for making those extra dollars.

What you need to do once you have installed the software is to choose a certain currency pair, such as the United States Dollar (USD) against the Japanese Yen (JPY). The robot will then analyze all the financial trends that happen between these two currencies. You do not even need to worry about how this is done because the software will do it all for you. A lot of expert traders have been skeptical about this at first, but after trying it, they have learned to trust it and just let everything go.

Where else can you get easy money and are free to go about wherever you want?

So, go online now and start using a FOREX trading robot to earn those extra dollars.
Forex Auto Pilot Turbo is an automated expert advisor for the Metetrader4 platform that can automatically trade on your behalf. This robot was developed by 3 IT programmers.
It's the only software of its kind that shows ongoing trade results from two live trading accounts (and not just backtesting results!) and updates them every 15 minutes.

There are many reasons why Forex Auto Pilot Turbo has hit the Forex market by storm:

? It's a true plug & play system. The only thing you need to do is set it up and let it run on autopilot.
? You are given the option to host it on a remote server, so that you don't have to keep your computer turned on all the time.
? It has been tested with real live trading accounts, not just demo accounts.
? It has very good video tutorials that can help you install the system.
? This program is restless. It can work 24 hours a day, 5 days a week analyzing the market trends.
? You don't have to be an experienced trader, you just need to follow simple setup instructions.
? They offer excellent customer service. Their team responds very quickly to any question.
? It has tighter risk controls and is designed to find more profit opportunities than any other software out there.
? There is a 60-day money back guarantee, which gives you the opportunity to buy the software, test it on a demo account for a month and return it if you don't like the results.
? This robot requires a very small investment, you can trade with as little as $50 (but you should have more than $50 to invest though)
? Its winning rate is 95.9% and its drawdown is 0.35%, when most systems have a 10%-20% drawdown.
? It uses 2 strategies to maximize profits: the scalping strategy (short-term) and the advanced strategy (long-term).
? Its risk controls and its ability to find profit opportunities are higher than any other robot out there.

To sum it up: Forex Auto Pilot Turbo will generate profit with very little risk. You take a look at it and get started with a demo account first before go live trading. If it does not work, you have 60 days to get your money back. More than likely, it will do wonders for you ?

Those credits will then be spent on showing your web site to other people who are running the screensaver. For each minute your screensaver or someone in your downline's screensaver is running, you earn 1/10 of a credit (more on why 1/10 is better than any other number in a bit).

(Need Published Authors) On hiring an editor? I am eight weeks from finishing my first novel of 75K words. And I am going to have it professionally edited. However, I was curious as to this: Is it appropriate to hire an individual to help make your novel better, or suggest changes in vocabulary, story and or plot outcome or change versions of the story? This being outside the norm of editing work as I understand of the usually grammatical or syntextual errors; Is this part of a good editing process, and if so, who would I contact for such work and how much is appropriate as far as pay?

Jeff

Admin 13.07.2008. 20:18

Yes what you are talking about IS within the norm of the editing process. In fact it is the most important part of the editing process. It is called margin notes and it is the reason you leave one inch margins all around - so the editor can write there. They will suggest deletions, additions, places to give more detail, places to trim down, places to speed up, places to slow down, places to change the order of passages, etc. But they will only suggest. It is still up to you to make the final decisions.

The best place to find competent editors is in Literary Marketplace. It is a very expensive book and can be found in libraries in the reference section. Bring a notebook because you won't be able to take it home.

When speaking to editors, you want to ask several questions. Who have they edited before? What experience do they have working in publishing houses? What is their turn around time? Have they edited your genre before? How do you send it to them - by file or by hard copy? While talking to them, you want to really get a good feel for their personality and their enthusiasm for your project. You want to choose someone you are comfortable with.

Most editors will offer to edit a few pages for free just to show you how they work. Ask about that.

As for fees - an editor can run between 5 and 15 dollars per page based on 250 words per page. Your budget makes a lot of difference obviously. You have to discuss payment. How much up front, how much halfway through, how much at the end. This will all be in contract form.

Make sure you check anyone you choose out vigorously on the internet. We are writers. We have Writers Beware sites. If someone has acted unprofessionally or is a fraud, you will find a trail easily through those sites. You have to advocate for yourself and do the legwork on that one.

Lastly, you say you are still 8 weeks from completion. Never give an editor a first draft. Put the book away and take a 1 - 2 month break. Then go back in and do your second draft. Editing comes after that. Some authors do many more drafts before they edit. But you want to be as professional as possible and sending a first draft is never a good idea.

You are making a smart decision to have it professionally edited before you shop it around. Once you sell it and sign a Standard Writers Contract, the publisher owns the rights and will edit it as they see fit. It is always best to do the bulk of the editing while you still maintain control of your work. A publisher will not even consult you regarding changes. You sold the book to them.

Lastly - never trust friends to do this work for you. Friends are friends and business is business. You will end up losing a good friend. Let the professionals do their job.

Hope that explains the process to you. Pax-C

Hi katylady77,

One of the thing that you will need to be aware is that the internet business is a real business which will requires you to put in the time, effort and money to grow the business.

Before I explain to you the simple system which you can use, you must always be aware of the Time vs Money rule. If you are not going to have a lot of money to invest into your business, you will have to invest your time into the business. It will still be possible to start a profitable online business but it will takes more time if you are on budget.

Here is the simple system which will only requires you to invest US$50 monthly to build your own business. You will have to do some steps first before you even start to build your website. Please do follow the system below:

1) Find a profitable market that you want to base your business in

This is important as you will want to decide on the market that you want to base your business in. You will want to be in a market where people are willing to spend money.


2) Find a profitable affiliate product

If you are just starting out and you do not have your own product, you can start to promote other people's product first. You will earn a certain percentage of the sales whenever a customer purchased through your affiliate link.


3) Build your own website which will be a squeeze page.

This is the step where you will be spending the US$50. Below are average cost and the tools that you need.

-> Domain name: This will cost you around US$10 yearly

-> Hosting account: This will cost you around US$10 monthly

-> Autoresponder Account: This will cost you around US$20 monthly

This will enable you to build your own website and you can also start to build your own list of subscribers. Building your own list is very important as it will ensure that you will be able to follow up with your customers if they do not purchase the product when they see it for the first time.


4) Start writing and submitting articles daily

Once you have your website, the next thing that you will have to do is to let people know your website so that you can promote the product to them. You will want to write articles that are related to the market that you have chosen. You will submit the articles to the top article directories which will drive you traffic. This method is call article marketing.

One of the thing that you need to know is that the traffic from article marketing will be gradual in nature. You will have to write and submit articles consistently so that you will get a constant flow of traffic coming to your website. As you are on a budget, you will have to invest your time to get the traffic to your website.

5) Add more email message to your autoresponder to promote 2nd or more product.

You will want to promote the 2nd or more products to your subscribers who have already join your list. This will ensure that you will be able to leverage on your list and earn more from them. This will be the main reason why you put putting in effort to build a list and build a good relationship with them.


This is the simple method which you can use. But you must know that as this is a real business, you will have to be patience and give it some time to grow.

I hope this will be helpful to you :)

Starting a business in Tulare? Hey all,
So this has been on the back burner for at least 5 years now. I've been wanting to start up a business in Tulare, CA. for quite some time, but have been unable to for scholastic reasons (college). What I've been planning to do is open up a media based business in that town. I'm a computer scientist and animator and have been wanting to combine those two skills together to create a small but viable business in game design or 3D animation. The reason why I chose tulare was because of cheaper property over Los Angeles and it's also my home town.

The business will consist of two parts. The studio/offices where the programing and animation work occurs and then the sales side. This side will consist of selling goods and services to people. On this side of the building I was thinking of having an internet bar, people pay $8 for 24 hours of internet, also we will be selling software games, cameras and computer parts. In the center I was planning to have some sort of bar that has a soda fountain people could buy custom virgin drinks to have while they kick back and surf the web or buy goods.

Now, my question is, is to fill the holes...
I want a business that I can work with, mostly in my animtion and computer science fields, but we would in theory be so far out from major businesses like LA or silicon valley (we're RIGHT in the middle) how would one go about being competitive in a vice like that?

Also, how would a business like the one I just mentioned (split, cooperate and sales) function, I thought it would be a great idea to bring in money from the sales side to help with the cooperate side. Is that a good idea.

Also who do I talk to in order to break ground to build.
Also, who do I talk to to get a LOAN to start building.

As you can see I still have many unanswered questions on how to execute this business so all you business folk out there, if you could lend a helping hand on this and give some suggestions, I'll take anything you have!

If you want to be successful, start either business not both. The businesses may seem similiar on the surface but really they aren't. No one is going to take you seriously as a developer, nor would you get anything done if you are, if you are busy selling soda for $1.50.

I would think the development side would be a ultimately a lot more profitable and less hassle. For this kind of work, you don't have to be local. Advertise on craigslist throughout CA and you should be able to find work.
