Home Based Internet Business Resources – Email
This is the second in a series of articles regarding legitimate home based internet business.
Incoming Email Filter – With Benefits
Email management skills are a necessity for successful home based internet businesses. I’m stating the obvious you say. Maybe. Maybe not. I do know that I had to change the way I thought about my email preferences settings when I started my home based internet business. Deciding which ones to allow through and which ones to actually take the time to read is more subjective than you might think. How do you find legitimate opportunities without weeding through tons of spam? Is there a system?
There is no online business that doesn’t employ some sort of email campaign. If you want to become a successful home based internet business owner, you must use email marketing, period. Email marketing is one of the first tools that you can use to drive visitors to your site. Every effective email campaign uses autoresponders to keep the ball rolling. The point is this: There are legitimate opportunities being sent to thousands of individuals’ inboxes everyday. The sad news is the majority get deleted without a second thought. Yet individuals still yearn to be self-employed, working from home, enjoying life more and feeling a greater sense of accomplishment.
Get Off The Bench
If you want to begin to gather information about becoming a home based internet business owner there’s more information available to you than ever before. It’s FREE. Don’t believe me? You must have your head in the sand. All it takes to get to know how it’s done is your time. You decide if you want to participate. You decide when you want to participate. But you must decide and good decisions are always made from a solid knowledge base. If you don’t know about something, you learn about it. Get off of the bench, get in the game and play.
Find A Niche
One of the biggest mistakes I made when I first started this business was getting too much information from too many different sources. My business started to grow when I quit going after the latest deal and actually spent some time implementing a program of my own. Again, it takes time to build a business. Search the internet for home based internet business, see what’s out there. Find a program that you’d like to try and begin by receiving their free newsletter. I see more good ideas for free ten to one over ones I pay for.
The longer you wait, the longer it will take for you to reach your goals. Whether you are interested in making an extra few bucks each month or making a real living from home, nothing happens until you get your feet wet. I played baseball in college and for a short time in the minor leagues and we had a saying around the batting cage, “Nothing happens ’til you swing.” Get the bat off of your shoulder, pick a pitch you like and swing away. Nothing happens until you do.
