Pay Attention to Details When Shopping for a New Income Stream

Details are actually very important. Many people look at the ‘big picture’ and that is all they seem to be concerned with. Certainly this a very important place as well as it may include your mid-range and long-term plans for the future.

pay attention

However a good example of why details are important might be given with computer instructions. Say you have a list of steps that you need to go through to get somewhere in a program. 99% of the time if you miss a step nothing will look as it is described. It can be as simple as hitting a [carriage return] as part of a step. The point is you are stuck and cannot go on.

This is no doubt frustrating and someone may be feeling (and actually is) completely lost. The only way out is to stop everything, and restart the process from the very beginning. Now you would try to follow along and don’t miss anything this time. Or you may just be able to back out using your [back] arrow button. Sometimes that works but many times it doesn’t for security reasons.

So now applying this to shopping for a possible new stream of income (program, product or service) to add to your ‘portfolio’. Wouldn’t it be awful to believe that the commission you will receive is $10 and then a month or two down the line when the first commission comes, it is actually $1? You might just throw your hands up and say ‘oh well’. However in reality the small commission may have influenced your decision to even get involved with the program. But you had overlooked that detail.

It is much better to know all the facts up in front and even to confirm them. You can start with the website or advertisement and thoroughly read it. If it has ‘FAQ’ (Frequently Asked Questions) do take the time to browse through it as you may learn something. If the website has other help documentation be sure to read anything you can there as well.

If you have any questions that are not answered, or that you don’t understand, don’t hesitate to contact their support or helpdesk. It is actually best to contact the company directly for any questions. The ‘sponsor’ is just the person whose ad you responded to and they may or may not respond to an email or even know the correct answer. So save yourself time and get the real story directly from the program itself.


Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained – Start a Home Business

Are you someone who is not really happy with the status quo but you are not quite sure how to get around it? It’s really very simple. It just takes some initiative and motivation. You have the motivation in that you are not happy with the way things are or at least wish they could be different. If you focus on that it will compel you to take action after a while.

nothing ventured nothing gained

You do need to build on this and as you progress you will think of more aspects to feel motivated about. For example maybe to begin with you just wish you had more money and felt more challenged in what you do for a living. Down the line you may be more specific in that for example you wish you had more money so you could have the down payment to buy a new car, or some other desire you may have had for a while.

As for the challenged part this is more intangible than money but it is still important to your mindset. If you really feel that you could be accomplishing more than you do – then you can make it happen. If you are not feeling challenged then you are likely bored and feel like you are in a rut. This can really lead to depression year after year and affect other aspects of your life.

It is not likely your employer has any interest in giving you more interesting and challenging work to do unless there is an actual promotion in position someday. Of course you would always hope for that and strive to shine so that you may be considered for that new situation should it arise. This however may or may not ever happen, and there are a lot of ifs, ands, or buts if it ever does. In the meantime you are getting more and more disenchanted with your lot.

So this is where the initiative comes in to play. You need to just simply take action. There is nothing and nobody stopping you from starting your own part-time home business. You will have fun and feel challenged if you don’t mind a little extra work. You will make your ‘spare’ time productive and have a feeling of gratification that you have accomplished something.

So next time you come home from the hamster wheel (j-o-b) boot your computer up and start researching ‘online businesses’, ‘home businesses’ and ‘work from home’. You will see thousands of suggestions and you should take some time for a few days to read things and visit sites so that you have some ideas about what you might do to start a business. Then DO IT!


Home Biz Start-Up – We Must Learn to Crawl Before We Can Walk

Although it can take some imagination, part of the beauty of starting your own business is that you get to create it in your vision. That is eventually. You do need to start out with learning the basics so that you build a solid foundation to begin with. However beyond that it is a ‘fluid’ thing where it can morph over time as many times as you need it to.

So don’t get too hung up on your ‘idea’. It is much more important to keep an open mind and to continue to learn as much as you can and to gain expertise in all the different facets of Internet marketing. You need the ‘experience’ to add to the strength of your foundation. Your ultimate dream may be something that is far beyond your grasp right now whether because of finances or skill.

This definitely doesn’t mean wait or give up. It means take ‘the path of least resistance’ – start with something you CAN DO right now – today if possible. For example an affiliate program will provide you with a sales web page that few people would know how to create off the top of their head. They may also provide some level of training in Internet marketing that would be applicable to any program or product you may want to promote in the future. You can ‘earn while you learn’.

Affiliate programs also have other structures in place that you can use for now. Again it may not be your idea or anywhere close to your dream to be an affiliate. You really want to be on your own, completely independent and only doing things that can be done your way. You want to have your own product or service and eventually build your own website and etc. This is a good long-range plan. How long is ‘long’ would only depend on your skill level and financial situation – and your motivation.

The cost of becoming an affiliate is very low especially when you realize how much they really do for you. This includes giving you the legal right to profit from their intellectual property. They give you permission to promote their product or service and will pay you a percentage of any sale or referral you make. They have spent considerable money to develop their program and to maintain it including the membership program itself. They provide customer service and process your sales transactions so you don’t have to be there. They provide a web page and other images/graphics for you to use to promote the program.

It’s well worth it to start crawling as an online affiliate marketer!
