The Secret to Creating a Successful Online Home Business
It has been a fact of my online business life since getting started online, that certain actions produce positive results.
That may not be the most profound statement ever made, but it seems to be a concept that is lost on many people.
After getting your site online(This should be your first step, by the way), you need to drive some traffic to that site. A site without traffic is like a bar with no beer – useless!
So, if you aren’t getting enough web traffic to your site then you need to discover ‘why not?’.
If you have installed Google Analytics on your site then you should have a good idea of where your traffic is coming from.
If you haven’t installed tracking on your site then you are missing a fundamental aspect of doing business online. Google Analytics won’t cost you a dime and is very simple to implement so get that on your main page(at least) today.
Once you discover where your traffic is originating then it’s likely you will know what action led to those results. For instance if you look in your tracking logs and find that an article you wrote has sent you 20 visitors this week, then you can mark this action down as a positive action. It isn’t rocket science, is it?
If after blogging for a couple of weeks you find that your traffic has increased by 20% then blogging can be chalked up as a working tactic that is going to bring you more traffic and sales.
POSITIVE ACTION IS THE KEY!
Continuing on a daily basis to take little steps to move your business forward, will eventually lead to a successful and profitable Internet business. You CAN do this! You just need to commit time to taking certain steps on a consistent basis.
Here are a few things you can do on a daily basis to grow your business over time:
1. Make a blog post.
2. Comment on other blogs in your niche.
3. Write and submit an article to the article databases.
4. Answer emails from prospects.
5. Write some ads for your Free traffic exchange surfing PLUS surf the exchanges to build up your credits.
The above list is just a few of many tasks that you can do daily to progress towards your eventual goal of earning a full-time income online.
Where most people fail online is that they don’t do enough of what works, for long enough. Or worse still they don’t ever discover what works and what doesn’t.
It’s amazing the amount of newcomers and even so called ‘pros’ that will pay money for an ad campaign and not track the results.
So, here’s my Internet marketing equation for today:
If Discovered Positive Action x 10 = 1 Sale – Then Discovered Positive Action x 100 = 10 Sales
Now get out there and get more work done. I think I’ll take some of my own advice and do some work – just a little – today too.
