Top 5 Internet Business Myths Debunked!

Many people have false expectations when they jump on the bandwagon to start their internet home business. When they are not able to attain those results, they throw in the towel, which is the main reason why 95% of internet home business owners never make it big. How can you improve the odds of your home business success? These debunked internet myths will help you set your feet on the right track:

Myth 1: Internet Business Is A Get Rich Quick Scheme

This is the undisputed no.1 myth associated with internet business. With the plethora of online advertisements promising fast bucks like “Earn $10K within your first month” and “Make $1K a day”, it is no wonder why internet home business has earned such reputation. Now, would you expect anyone to advertise in this manner: “This is a rough business, you have little chance to make it, but buy my product anyway for $47.00 even though the odds are against you?”

While it is not impossible to achieve phenomenal success in internet business, those who make it big in a short duration are an exception to the norm. They have all paid the price investing in time, experience, building customers’ trust and contacts, and who would have known the all the hard work and toil they have put in? Success looks glamorous, but they come with a price tag.

Myth 2: Internet Business Is Easier Than Offline Business

In any business, you cannot run away from the aspects of setting up the business and marketing it. Internet home business is just a different way of doing things. Whereas in traditional offline business, you need to rent a space for your business and market it using pamphlets and media(television, radio, etc), in online business, you need a domain and hosting plan and market your business using online social media.In short, with internet home business, you harness technology to do the hard work for you.

Please bear in mind that internet business is not a 9-5 job. In 9-5 job, some people can get away without doing anything (and they still earn their salary!). However, in internet home business, you reap what you sow. When you sow seeds of diligence and perseverance, success will come knocking. If you have always yearn to be your own boss and earning your potential while being there for your family, look no further than internet home business!

Myth 3: Starting An Internet Business Is Easy-Peasy

It is indeed easy to start an internet business, but to run a profitable business, one that pays off the bills, there is more than meets the eye. The greatest challenge would be to find the right information and to act on it. Many have been overwhelmed by the sheer information found online until they do not know where and how to start.

There are countless ways to make money online, but how do you know which ones will work for you? Who should you turn to for help when you find yourself running in circles? If there is one piece of advice I can offer, it is this: Develop a passion for learning, and you will never cease to grow. Learn from those who have attained internet business success, those who have been there, and done that. Learn from their experiences. After all, you don’t have all the time in the world to make the same mistakes.

Myth 4: I Don’t Have To Spend Any Money To Start My Internet Business

Please bear in mind that internet home business is a business, not a job. You are not guaranteed income at the end of the month. However, if you are willing to work like a horse for an employer, why not slog it off for your own business? After all, a business is an investment which will pay off handsomely–if you manage it well.

Any business requires start up costs, and the great thing about Internet home business is that the start-up costs are very minimal as compared to a brick and mortar store. No wonder wealth guru Robert Kiyosaki highly recommends network marketing home business as the best way for an individual to become a successful home business owner.

What a simple world! I can get all I needed from my bedroom. Anything under the sun can be sold and bought on the internet.

Advantages of Starting internet Business:

*Very low or Zero start up capitals.

Today’s government and schools are making it mandatory for all the staffs and students to be computer literate and internet compliant. These have forced the government and schools to provide computers and internet connectivity to major schools and offices. The majority of staffs and students are trained free on how to use the computer and the internet service. That is a great investment on you.

Apart from government, most home today are having PC for family use. Churches, mosque, and even shrines today are using computer with internet connection. That is to say PC is a common thing to get nowadays. We are in the era of having a computer, an internet service provider (ISP), an email address, and even having a Blog has become very essential as food, water, and air.

Option A:

If you happen to be among those having free computer and internet services in your office or school, start your internet business immediate. All you need do, is to get one or two training manuals on internet marketing and start from there. Well, some of the ebooks are junks’ but you can get a quality manual with mentorship at a very affordable fee.

Option B:

If it happens that you don’t have an office or school internet centre, you can go for the option B called cyber Cafe. All over the world today, we have cyber cafe everywhere even to villages. Depending on the area and the standard of the cyber cafe, to browse the internet for one hour is raging from 70naira to 150naira per hour in Nigeria or 0.46cents to $1 per hour in US Dollars. If you should have 4hours daily for your internet Business, it will cost you 280naira everyday or $1.85 every day on your business.

It is 8,400naira or $55.5 monthly investment on your online business. If you have the right Niche at hand, this 8,400naira or $55.5 can earn you 225,000naira or $1,500 monthly. If you count the cost and the margin of the internet and the offline business, you will know that internet business is the millennium revolution.

Option C:

If you want to be in total control of your internet business, option C should be your best option if and only if you can afford it. This option, you will need to buy your own PC or Laptop, and get your own internet service provider (ISP). At this point, you are in total control of your internet business.

You don’t have fear of after office hour where will you go. You don’t have fear of cafe not working some weekends. At this point, your office can be your bedroom, seating room, farm, even the beach. I started my internet business with option B as a cafe boy but to I browse from the comfort of my bedroom.

With 80,000naira i.e. $530 budget you can get your own brand new laptop and a Broadband MODEM here in Nigeria. The laptop will cost you 60,000naira or far less than that if you are going for the cheap ones. The MODEM will cost you 20,000naira or cheaper than that based your choice of network.

With the advent of telecommunication industries, GSM phones are making internet access easier every day. You can now use your phone as MODEM and your phone service provider as your ISP. Whatever the budget here, 80,000naira not pay rent of your storefront for one year but can set up your online business for life. Therefore, internet business is the cheapest business you can ever start.

*World Wide Access

The internet exposes you to the world. People can access your business from any part of the world. This is one of the advantage those ancient and orthodox business never hard. Today, 99% of business owners in united state are going online. You don’t need to travel to US, UK, Europe, Asia, and Africa before doing business with them.

You can sell or buy from any of these continents even if you are living in Sahara desert. All you may need is just to Register Domain Name and Hosting for one year which may not cost you more than 5,000naira i.e. $34.

What do you think if the 6 billion people in world will go online and you have a $10 product that 1billion people are desperately looking for? One day, you will wake up $10billion rich.

* Zero or little Business Discriminations

The internet has broken the ethnic barriers and racial discriminations in business. You don’t need to know who you are selling to or who buying from, all that matters on the internet is the quality of services rendered. It doesn’t matter either the man is black, white, yellow or red man. All that matters is the service needed and the service provided.

Some people may blacklist some country but that does not make everybody in that country fraudulent.

* Work from anywhere

Another powerful advantage of internet Business is the Work from Home, Work from Beach, Work from your hotel room, Work while traveling, even Work while you sleep if you are using autopilot system and software. No more working 9am to 5pm in that congested office space with a nagging boss looking from your shoulder. You are your own boss in internet business but if you lost focus, the internet will become your boss. Be focused and discipline.

Want to Start an Internet Business? Seven Basic Things to Consider

Billions of dollars are spent on the internet every year and the number is rising. If you are in business and have not considered the internet, why are you not marketing your products or services to this biggest marketplace? If you have not got a business, starting an internet business should be a good business venture. What should you consider if you want to start an internet business? Here are seven basic things you should consider:

Firstly, do you have any technical knowledge about the internet? This is not the day to day surfing of the internet, emailing and posting on social media sites. This is about domain registration, hosting, DNS setup, website design, html, ftp etc. Luckily today, these information are readily available and the knowledge can be easily learned. You need to assess the level of your technical knowledge so that you can find out what areas you need to beef up. This is important so you can define your requirements and evaluate the right books to buy or even courses or training programs to take.

Starting an internet business, as you may have heard, will cost you close to nothing. This is not entirely true. If you were to start a business without the necessary tools and knowledge, how far would you think you will go? Some degree of investment will be needed to acquire the necessary knowledge and tools relating to internet business. Try and leverage on the knowledge and experience of those who have made it. There are plenty of courses, training programs and ebooks regarding internet business out in the market, but which one should you invest in? Putting some thought on the amount of investment will give you a clearer picture when evaluating the training materials you intend to acquire. If you look for it hard enough, you will find a package that suits your requirements and budget.

Training course or program is the third thing you must consider. There are plenty of courses or ebooks relating to internet marketing business out there. Choosing one that meets your requirements is important. Your evaluation of your technical knowledge will come in handy in selecting a course, training materials or ebooks you need for your internet business. Besides technical knowledge, you should assess how much you know about the various key areas of internet marketing eg. email marketing, link building, copywriting, PPC marketing, niche market research, social media marketing or even video marketing. If you are starting the business from scratch with minimal knowledge and not very technically savvy, you may want to choose an internet business step-by-step start up training package that have also incorporated website design and hosting. The course or ebooks you choose should enhance the knowledge of the areas you are least familiar with. There are plenty of options and the investment consideration you made earlier will help you determine the type of packages you can invest in. There are packages which involve one off payment. There are also subscription based training programs or packages which will not drain your cashflow upfront.

What product should you consider selling? Evaluating, choosing or developing the right niche product for your internet business is very important to the success of your internet business. There are affiliate programs you can choose and join to start your internet business relatively quickly. The best money making approach is, of course, developing your own product, but this will take time. Remember always that you are creating a product that your customers want, not a product you feel strongly about that you want to sell. You will need to do some market research to find the niche product you are able to develop that will sell like hot cakes. Most good internet marketing courses will include this area and teach you how to do market research.

Once you have got a product to sell, you’ll need to create a website to sell the product by having an online internet presence. What sort of website do you need? You can have a website to market a single product which most internet marketing gurus recommend or you can have a content type website to market a range of related products and at the same time monetize your website with Google ads. You can also have a website created only for the purpose of list building.

After deciding on the type of website you’ll create, you must consider and plan the suitable method to drive traffic to your website. Traffic generation is the most important aspect of an online business. There are plenty of traffic generation ways or tips you can search up online and there are even software that you can use to generate traffic. Traffic generation methods or techniques should be a core part of any internet business course you consider to purchase.

The last thing but the most important thing to consider is time. How much time can you spent on the internet business? A lot of people start up an online business as a part time venture. Even when you are running the business part time, consistent time commitment is key to its success. I’m sure you have heard that internet business allows you to make money while you sleep. Isn’t it great to be able to make money while you sleep? But, the reality is making money while you sleep will not happen without commitment of time and effort. You will not even make any money while you are awake if you don’t commit any time and effort on the business! For those successful internet business owners, a lot of effort and time would have been spent on the business before they could see money coming in while they sleep.
