Why the Internet is a home business dream IF you follow 3 key steps by Dr. Jeffrey Lant ----------------------------- To get more articles and talk to our LIVE staff in the member area sign up here: http://www.FastFunProfits.com -----------------------------
The advent and development of the Internet has set millions of people worldwide dreaming -- dreaming that they might be able to stay home and profit and thereby escape many of the drawbacks of today's business rat race. The problem is: these people are generally clueless on what it takes to achieve their objective. Hence this article, straight talk on what it takes to profit online, advice you can follow now to avoid online failure and maximize home-based business success.
Step 1: The Absolute Necessity For Your Own Domain It is 100% clear now who profits online: people with their own domains, that is people who understand that the 'net is a domain-driven environment. Look at the Internet companies that are household names: ebay.com amazon.com msn.com worldprofit.com What distinguishes these powerhouses? These companies ALL have domains. That is, they own a piece of Internet real estate that's identified and differentiated by their own URL, www.domainname.com The Internet is a domain-driven environment. To succeed you have to own your own piece of the 'net, and you must be committed to developing it to the maximum extent. Without a domain you own nothing online and have no place to develop for the long term. In other words, you're dead!
Step 2: Don't Think Small Every multi-billion company started small, with one product or at one location, often at home. What distinguishes the folks who became multi-millionaires from the also-rans is that the successful people were committed to growth, development and maximum profits. The Internet is perfect for this, tailor-made for those who want these benefits and still want to work at home. Say you develop a terrific product. By all means create a website to sell it. Then from Day 1 start brainstorming all the related products that people interested in what you're selling would also want. Contact the suppliers of these products; add what they've got to what you've got. Then brainstorm some more as you contact still other suppliers for the related products they can add to the mix. Soon you've got a website featuring hundreds of products, each a revenue stream, all being sold from your increasingly valuable domain. Take a look at every successful business person on earth. They either develop or acquire the rights to any given product, then grow their empires by developing or acquiring still more products. What's great about this system of endless growth is that there is NO reason you cannot do this at home, online. However, it's essential you have the vision that necessarily precedes this growth.
Step 3: Talk To Your Customers Take a look at the average website, and you see the reason why so many home-based and other entrepreneurs fail online: the site is nothing more than a one-dimensional 'bill board' presenting information, with visitors given nothing more helpful than a 'contact us' link for customer service. This is ridiculous and sends a bad message to customers, that you're less than interested in assisting them. Come and buy by all means, but don't expect us to assist you.' When you go into a regular offline retail store, you EXPECT customer service, and you punish those establishments which don't provide it. The same is true online. Businesses, home-based or otherwise, which are going to profit online are those which provide maximum customer service, including the ability for unlimited interactive communication between customers and visitors. This communication enables you to greet all visitors, find out what they're looking for, answer their queries, make special offers, close deals, etc. In other words, it enables you to simultaneously assist the customer and grow your business! Now take a look at your current website or any other sites you've visited lately. Are they simply posting information... or are they able to communicate with their customers and provide these crucial visitors with the same superb customer service they expect offline?
How you answer this question on your website will absolutely determine your online future.
