Running your own home based internet business is a piece of cake. Right? Well maybe, maybe not. It certainly can be. However, all too often the exact opposite is closer to the reality for many eager home based business owners.

You've probably heard how easy it is to rake in tens of thousands of dollars practically over night, and how you can have all kinds of "free time" and extra cash for traveling and shopping at your favorite store...

Just throw up a web site, add a few affiliate links, post to some forums and presto - you're in the money!

But the reality is this. If you want to succeed in your own home based internet business, whether it's affiliate marketing or selling your own products, you will have to work at making it successful. You have to make it your job to succeed. You must treat it as your job, not as your hobby. That means developing and maintaining committed to the task.

It's great to think that with just a few easy strokes you'll be running on auto-pilot, bringing in loads of cash and then on to the next venture. But without some simple planning and consistent effort you're setting yourself up for failure.

To aide you in this effort, here are a few tips to help you develop good habits for achieving your goals:

STAY ORGANIZED:

Set up folders in your email program:

You should set up a folder for each contact and keep important correspondence while deleting what you don't need. If you belong to membership sites that require passwords, keep the "welcome" letters where you can find them.

Set up folders on your desktop.

If you download a lot of software, ebooks or PDF books from specific individuals simply name a folder on your desktop after the author or site owner. Then when you download something you can place it in their folder.

Make your own HTML home page.

For quick and easy access to all your important sites make up an HTML page with hyperlinks to your most frequently used sites along with a brief explanation of each site. Keep it on your desktop for easy access.

While it is possible at some point to eventually catch up on being organized this way, starting out that way and keeping it organized will save you hours and hours of searching, frustration, and missed opportunities.

STAY FOCUSED:

Set aside a specific time for working on your internet activities.

It could be from 7pm-9pm every day or whatever time's good for you. During this time try everything possible to not get distracted from doing only what needs to be accomplished for your business. Try to use the same time slot every day so you get into a routine and get used to the working mindset. I have found that setting aside time this way is important not only for myself, but other members of the household (my wife, kids and the dog!) - all know that this is important "do not distrub time for me as well! Oh, and my the way, save the surfing for another time.

SET ASIDE A WORK SPACE:

Make sure that your have a clearly defined work area to put your work materials and important files into. It is important that your family know that this area is off limits.


Finish one task before starting another.

As the old saying goes, "Put one foot in front of the other." Don't start working on something new until the first task is completely finished.

BE CONSISTENT

Work the ideas that "work."

When you find something that works well for you work it hard and get as much out of it as possible. If you're submitting articles to a certain site and they're paying dividends, keep feeding the cycle.

LEARN FROM FAILURES:

Don't get discouraged. Each failure's just a learning process. Use any failure to your advantage by taking the lesson and applying it to your next venture.

Test, test, and more test.

Always test headlines and ad copy. A small change can reap huge rewards.

With these few simple steps you will stay organized, stay focused, be consistent in your efforts and build a solid foundation on which you can build your internet empire!

After all, you are the one who will ultimately determine the success or failure of your business!

Best of Luck with your internet ventures!

  18. Hi, nice blog and thx for the info.

    Working from home used to be something utopic for me just 2 years ago, as it probably is even today for 95% of all people. However, I found out that while you won’t get rich overnight on the Internet, you can generate some nice income. Now, I live in Romania, which is a rather poor Eastern European country, with an average wage of about $300 per month. You can imagine what a huge impact my discovery of online money making possibilities meant – especially since I am now earning constant 4-figure USD earnings each month, through various online activities (hosting ads on my websites, freelancing as a content writer and graphic designer).

    I tried to put all my knowledge to good use and summarize it in a new website, which I invite you to check out if you have the time - Web2earn.com – learn how to make money online
