Are you investing time or money?
If you have plans for any level of success in this business you are going to have to invest either your time or your money into making it happen.
Really you need a fair amount of both, but you can make it with a strong dose of either one:
If you have more time on your hands than you have money to invest, be prepared for this process to take a lot longer than you're probably planning.
If you have money to invest in getting your site running, but don't have much free time, then you will need to focus your efforts on finding the best places to spend that money.
All too often I get emails that basically say: "I'm working 12-14 hours a day at my full-time job just trying to make ends meet, so I don't have much free time and I sure don't have any money...but I want to create a website so I can make a lot of money and quit my job."
Now, I'm not trying to hurt anyone's feelings if this is your situation, but what I want to do is set a few things straight and hopefully help you make some changes in the way you approach this business.
1. If you don't have much money to invest in the services
and materials you need for an Internet business, then
you are going to have to spend a LOT of time learning
the ropes through the various free and low-cost re-
sources out there.
It won't happen overnight, and you should expect to
burn a quite a bit of midnight oil trying to figure
out what really works and what doesn't.
2. With money but little time, you will need to invest
in quality training materials, quality hosting, and
a toolbox of various utilities and essentials to
help you get established quickly.
On top of these basics, you'll need to be prepared
to spend money on advertising to help duplicate
your efforts and get the most out of the time you
are able to spend working on your business.
I know there are still a quite a few people out there that feel that you just say you're going to build a website and you are instantly on the road to riches.
Unfortunately this couldn't be any further from the truth.
Sit down and determine which one of the above you have to invest in your business, and then focus your efforts on getting the most out of that investment.
