Things to Do When Starting a Online Business Full-Time

Whether you’re about to dive in to your very first online business venture or whether you’re a seasoned Internet business owner, you’ll likely encounter several advantages and disadvantages along the way. Getting out of financial ruin or alleviating your financial stress is one way that having an online business can help you. Another great feature is that you can be home to work the hours you wish and have the freedom to take a day off if you choose to.

If you’re looking to be wildly successful, however, be prepared to spend many hours getting everything set up for success (many people give up before they see success). Another reason why some people fail at an online business venture is that the novelty of having their own “gig” wears off and they soon lose their motivation. Here are four situations you’re likely to be faced with if you own an online business.

Two Positive Results of Owning an Internet Business

If you have become the victim of downsizing and are no longer working, you’re not alone. The facts and figures show that, as of August 21, 2009, a whopping 16% of us are unemployed! Though many folks have applied for unemployment to help make the bills, they are finding that entering the job-seeking market once again is a brutal place to be. Owning an Internet business can shield you from being laid off for lack of work and can provide you with financial security once everything gets going.

Not having to punch a timecard or commute a distance to the office is another great reason to start an online business. You can be at home, working in your pajamas if you wish, and have the freedom to take a 2-hour lunch if you choose to. Awards assemblies for the kids and doctor’s appointments are no longer a challenge because you don’t have to report to an employer every day. The burden of driving in traffic for hours a day is sometimes the only reason why people break free from the corporate work structure and start something online!

Two Disadvantages of Owning an Online Business

In any business’ beginning stages, much work and effort is required. If you are opening your very first business and have a learning curve to overcome, be prepared for it to take slightly longer to get your business up and running. Learning valuable skills like search engine optimization, Internet marketing, social networking, article marketing, list building, and blogging are necessary skills to have under your belt before proceeding (or hire someone to do this for you).

Lack of motivation is your worst enemy! If you are very excited about getting started on your business and then quickly lose steam once you see how much work is involved, then you’ve completely sabotaged your business! Surround yourself with people who are in the same line of work as you are and feed off of their motivation and lack of procrastination. Successful people are those who do not let fear get in the way of their dreams and they get necessary tasks done thoroughly and in a timely manner!

5 Easy Tips For Twitter Newbies

Twitter is the hottest new tool in any internet marketers tool belt, but without the business plan, it's as good as worthless for creating traffic and online revenue. You see, Twitterers are a fussy bunch, and when you break Twitter etiquette, you'll certainly hear about it quickly. With so many rules to follow, so many followers to keep happy, and such a large dynamic community to move about in, you need to make sure that your Twitter usage is about making real value and building real connections, not building thin value and a weak marketing resource. These 5 rules will help you get on the right track and start building a Twitter marketing resource that's second to none.

#1 - Don't mass follow just for more followers.
Sure, a big follower count is a good thing, but it's worth nothing if it's balanced by a massive 'following' count. The best way to gauge someone's influence isn't to look at the sheer numbers, but to look at the relationship between the two. Sometimes, the most influential Twitterers won't have many people that they're following, but will have big follower counts. In turn, many people with big follower counts might not be as influential as they first appear.

#2 - Don't use your Twitter account as a link dump.
When you simply post link after link, your followers will get tired of hearing from you and end up looking elsewhere for people to follow. It's all about balancing promotion and value, and never mixing the two up. When you post a link (which shouldn't be too often) make sure it's valuable, unique, and worthwhile for your followers to click on.

#3 - Affiliate links are a big no-no, unless they're helpful.

There's a simple term for using your Twitter account for posting affiliate links without any reason: SPAM. While it's ok to post affiliate links, you need to make sure that they're used in the right context and at the right times. Don't just go posting links 24/7 -- think them through and only ever post them when you know that they'll create value for your followers. A good way to test whether they're worth it or not is to post just one affiliate link, and see if it effects your follower count. In nobody minds, slowly introduce them into your account.

#4 - Keep in contact with the influentials.
Want to become an influential Twitter user? Keep in touch with people that are bigger than you. It's the same philosophy that's guided mentorships for years -- you can always learn more from people that are above you. If you want to boost your value to followers, try to arrange interviews and communications with people that wield big influence online. A simple article with one big name can bring in more value for your followers, and more influence for you.

#5 - Break the rules.
That's right -- break the rules. When you think you need to, break them and see what happens. Great Twitter strategies are born out of broken rules, so make sure that you use them to your advantage. Be adventurous, and don't be afraid to take the occasional risk on Twitter.

Setting Up an Ebook Affiliate Program

When you begin marketing your ebook on the Internet, you can dramatically increase your sales with an affiliate program. An affiliate program will enable you to recruit an entire sales force to market your ebook for you. The great thing about having an affiliate program is that your affiliates work for you on a commission basis. They are paid a specified percentage for each sale they make. If they dont make any sales, they wont get paid.

The key to obtaining affiliates is to offer a nice commission for each sale. The higher the commissions, the more affiliates youll recruit.

There are thousands of affiliate programs on the Internet. In order to be successful, you must sell your affiliate program just like your product. In other words, your affiliate letter should be written like a sales letter. You must persuade your visitors to join your affiliate program by packing your affiliate sales letter with benefits. Tell them exactly what your affiliate program will do for them, how much commission they will receive and make the sign-up process simple.

Setting Up Your Affiliate Program

When youre ready to set up your affiliate program, there are basically two options. The first option is to purchase an affiliate software program. Affiliate software will track your affiliate sales and enable your affiliates to view their stats. This option requires that you run your affiliate program and you are responsible for accepting payment and sending out commission checks.

The second option is to use a third party affiliate tracking company to run your affiliate program for you. These companies will track your affiliate sales, enable your affiliates to check their stats and send out commission checks for you.

Increasing Affiliate Sales

The key to developing a successful affiliate team is to keep your affiliates motivated. Set up an opt-in list to enable them to subscribe and receive new promotional methods, sales letters and articles to assist them in making more sales. This will not only increase their sales, but it will also enable you to keep in contact with your affiliates and introduce new products.

Nobody knows more about your ebook than you do. Set up a page on your web site and provide your affiliates with all of the promotional information theyll need to market your ebook. This information might include all of the following:

- Banners - Sample ads - Articles - Reviews - Sales letters - Autoresponder courses

To further increase sales, create a sample or limited version of your ebook. This ebook should be used to intrigue and persuade your readers to purchase the full version. This can be accomplished by allowing your readers to only view a portion of your ebook. In order for them to gain full access to your ebook, they must purchase the password.

The key to using this technique successfully is to enable your affiliates to customize the sales links within the ebook with their affiliate information. This will provide your affiliates with a viral marketing tool that they can freely distribute and earn commissions for years to come.

Creating a Customizable Ebook

In order to create an ebook that can be customized by your affiliates, your ebook must be in HTML (EXE) format. In addition, you must have a special ebook compiler. This compiler will enable you to specify certain areas within your ebook that may be customized. When your affiliate downloads your ebook, they will also need to download an additional software that will be used to place their affiliate information within your ebook. There are very few compilers on the market that use this technology.

Here are two that I recommend:

Ebook Edit Pro

Activ E-book

Both of these compilers will enable you to create an ebook with customizable fields.

Developing your own affiliate program will not only enable you to increase your sales, but it will also drive targeted traffic to your web site. Even if your visitor decides not to purchase your ebook, they may be interested in some other products your web site offers.

Take your time and select the best affiliate option for your business. If youd rather not take the time to run your affiliate program, you may want to use one of the third party affiliate companies. This is the easiest route and will enable you to concentrate on more important things -- like making more sales and writing new ebooks.
