Starting your Internet Home Business
by Rebecca Gilbert
Starting your Internet Home Business isnít hard, but it isnít easy either. (Arenít you glad I cleared that up?)
What I mean to say is that if you have a product or opportunity that the public is interested in, it isnít hard to start an internet business and get your product or opportunity noticed.
First of all you will need to build a website. Although, you will go through your headaches with your website building adventure, itís fairly easy, ultra cheap, and these days you can even build a website without any knowledge of html.
After your website is built, you will have to work on getting traffic to your website. Without traffic you will not make any sales and your internet business is sure to fail. It would be like your website sitting in a dark closet, because no one knows itís there.
So, you go through the long hard task of linking to other webmasters, submitting your site to the search engines and directories, because this process of getting links to your website is what drives traffic to your site, both from your link partners and a vast number of link partners is what moves your website to the top of the search engines.
This isnít a hard process, it just takes time and that is the hardest thing about starting your own Internet Business. It takes time, but in the end itís worth every hour that you have invested. A top listing on any search engine or directory is sure to bring any website enough traffic to sustain a business.
When I built my first website, I exchanged links with other webmasters and spent long hours submitting to directories, writing articles and all the things that you do to create traffic, and after about 16 weeks of doing nothing else and starting to have doubts on whether this was ever going to happen for meÖit happened. My website got listed on the first two pages of the major search engines for a few low traffic keywords.
Little by little, I was able to procure links from some very popular websites because my website was becoming more popular. Directories were starting to pick up my website, and I was slowly moving to the top of the search engines for various high traffic keywords.
So as you can see, starting an Internet Business is not hard, it does take an incredible amount of time and patience, and that is a hard thing for most people. Most people who fail on the internet may give it a try for a couple of weeks or even a month. When they donít see any benefits from their work, they will give up.
Itís sad really, little did they know they were within months of creating a successful Internet business that would have provided for their family and loved ones beyond their wildest dreams.
If your just starting out with your own internet business. Be sure that you donít set your expectation too high. It will take at least six months of hard work before you start to see a dime for your time invested.
ďWe reap what we sow, but the harvest is never in the same season as the planting! Today you are planting...and will be at least for the next few months. Your harvest will come in time. Be persistent. Be patientĒ Gary Carson SFI"
