How is your venture going so far? Are there days when you just get fed up and want to forget all about it? Is it taking more time than you thought it would or should? Do you spend your weekends working on articles or the layout and content of your website? Does your spouse question you as to what you are doing? Most importantly, are you making money yet? Can’t find enough time in the day to get all the things you planned done?
I know how frustrating it can all be, with so much data to go through. And then you have to figure out what to include and what to omit. There is only so much free time that you will be prepared to dedicate to your on-line business, otherwise you will be better off going and getting a part time job with a regular income.
If you need that guaranteed pay, I would probably recommend you go and get that part time job on the side, but you will still be in the same position that you are in presently. The position might carry the same pitfalls as your full time employment, such as:
- Difficulty getting on with your employer
- No pat on the back or words of thanks when you deliver on time and on budget
However, there is definitely a way forward! It is just a matter of persevering with what you have already started online. There really are great business opportunities (part-time of full time) such as top paying affiliate programs, franchise opportunities and other profitable home based businesses which cannot be ignored. If you follow the tips on this website, you will start to get Googled, Yahoo’d or Binged, resulting in regular organic traffic. Some examples of the tips are:
- ways to be more efficient with your time
- how to choose the best marketing tools
- ideas on creating valuable and original content
- advice on tapping into niche markets
On the other hand if you take a weekend job flipping burgers, perhaps you can make manager someday at Fast Food Charlie’s? Question is; do you want to be the manager at Fast Food Charlie’s? Well, personally I don’t want to work at any fast food place. Unless you like to perform repetitive tasks and do not a have a single creative bone in your body, I would say revise your household budget and find a way to make your home based business ideas work.
If you can afford a few dollars here and there, get some content written for you. You can get this done for a very reasonable price. If you have a few more dollars, and need a helping hand with some SEO, the link I have provided has a surplus of these people listed too. If money is an object and you cannot spend a dime on it, you can do this all yourself for free. Spend some time looking for a suitable keyword research tool. I can recommend Market Samurai (though it does more than keyword research) or you could try Wordtracker. Having said all that, I’m hiring a helping hand in that department and will keep you posted on how that goes.
The goal is to work for ourselves, do something that we enjoy and to get a sense of accomplishment from the tasks that we have performed. We all want to bring about more points of happiness into our lives, and working at our own online based businesses is one of the surefire ways that we can do it.
The frustrating days will pass, there will be mornings that you awaken with splendid ideas on the next move; take note of new ideas, jot them down so that you don’t forget, work at developing the ideas that will be beneficial to your online based business. You will find different sources of motivation to keep on going, remember what motivated you to start your online business and always keep it in plain sight.
