Taking the Right Action: Shortcuts For Online Business Success, Part I

If you are going to succeed in your online business, you must take action. Massive action. Consistent action. Action fueled by your burning desire.

But, when you first start an online business, or if you have been struggling to earn money from home, you might sit in front of your computer, really wanting to take action, and having no idea what to do. Not because you lack information on what to do. Much more likely, you have WAY too much information on what to do.

Information overload is the number one reason people don’t take action. You are overwhelmed. You have two hours a night to work on your online business. Yet it will take 200 hours just to get through all of the “how-to” information you have. And still another 200 hours to implement it. That is if you have the knowledge and ability to implement it at all.

So, realistically, how can you achieve success when you start an online business? I mean success now. Not twenty years from now.

I can tell you absolutely that the way to earn money from home is NOT to sit at home and spend money. And the opportunities to spend money abound. Part of your work when you start an online business is to subscribe to the internet marketing experts’ lists. And you should do this. You will get a lot of good free information and tips about how to find online business success.

But you will also get a lot of product offers. All of them have well written sales letters. All of them claim that making money from home is easy. Most of them promise to be the new system that’s going to change it all for you. Most of them guarantee that even a newbie can do it. But, the fact is, with most of them you are not going to earn money online.

Why? Not because the product creators are scam artists. This is rarely true. So if you are trying to take action but still not finding online business success, what’s wrong? What’s wrong with all of those $97 products you’re buying. Maybe you’ve even tried the $397 product, the $997 product, or more. I’ve got them all.

Here’s where most of them go wrong. Either the product isn’t what someone just trying to start an online business should be buying. Or, the product doesn’t provide you with a complete system. And, without a complete system, it’s hard to earn money online unless you have the time and knowledge to set up a complete system. Most people have neither.

Part of the problem is that the people who are marketing these products to you aren’t marketing them to you. They are marketing them to their list of thousands of people. And the product may only be the “right” product for a few hundred of those people.

But, the marketer doesn’t know you. Doesn’t know who you are. Doesn’t know what you need. Doesn’t know if you are making money from home or just trying to get started. And, unfortunately, usually they don’t care. They are promoting a product for a friend. Usually one of their fellow expert marketers. Or they are trying to win a JV contest and just want to sell as many of the product as they can.

So what is the answer? Not buy any products? No. Not unless you are looking to take the long road. I’ll reveal the shortcut to online business success next time.
