Building Your Online Business From Scratch

Too often I hear people talk about not having enough time or money to get started in this industry. The real reason would be that these people are afraid to start their business. You can't have it in your head that it's not the right time or you don't have enough money or you want to see how it goes, etc. If you're serious about the Direct Sales industry and building an Online Business, the time is always right and the time is NOW. As far as not having enough money, that's the exact reason why you need to take action right NOW!!! So, I've put together a few tips about how to Build Your Online Business From Scratch. I know, that's how I did it!

1) Content: I mention this so much I'm starting to get tired of hearing myself say it, I can only imagine what you must be thinking. However, it's the truth. You can never give too much content, and it's free to do. You can get your content out in multiple different ways. You can do articles, videos, press releases, blogs and even online classified ads. Do a Google search on distribution sites for articles and press releases. Youtube is a great place to start uploading your videos and a blog is the most simple tool you can get. The more content you can give the bigger following you will become. The best part about this is that it doesn't, nor should it be, company specific. This means you can have these followers and fans with you regardless of the company you're affiliated with. So start giving.

2) Reinvest: If you are Building Your Online Business From Scratch, you are going to have to reinvest your earnings back in to your business. I know this is business 101 and should be done regardless, but especially in the beginning. Remember, if you're building your business this way, that means you have little to no money. So, when your income starts flowing in, you need to start to upgrade. Maybe you begin to dabble in PPC or other types of paid advertising. I guess what I'm really trying to say is Don't go Spend that money on new shoes or a new iphone!! I know, this is not a popular mentality, but it is a must. Trust me, if you just hold out and continue to reinvest in yourself and your business, you'll be able to buy anything you want very shortly. In the beginning, you must remain focused and humble.

3) Training: This is for both you and your team. Most people think it is up to their upline or their sponsor to do all of the training. This is not the case. It is never too early for you to start training your team. The faster you can begin to implement this the faster you will begin to see bigger results. Not only that, but it will make you a better leader and a better Marketer. You will begin to understand what people truly need and where the void is that you need to fill. You also need to continue to train yourself. You will never stop this process. The minute you say something like, "I already know this," is the minute you stop growing and you have just limited yourself. NEVER stop growing!

Building Your Online Business From Scratch actually puts you at an advantage. Everyone else will not have the same sense of urgency and importance as you do. You MUST do things often and well or your business dwindles. Take the reigns and drive this thing all the way to the top. As your business begins to grow you'll notice people begin to thank you for your leadership and you won't even realize your doing it. Don't make excuses, make money and build your business. Let other people be nervous and timid, you need to be the leader and continue to climb. I hope this helps you on your Journey. Until next time, Happy Marketing!
