For anybody who is planning to, or going about, starting a home-based-business, there are some basic provisos and warnings that come as fine print, and regarding which nothing much is ever said by the prospective recruiters. But it is imperative that you give due heed to these basic truths.
The number one reason many fail in their online business ventures is they under-estimate the amount of time an effort needed to succeed.... sometimes this can be because they are mislead by the less honest internet marketers out there who promise riches beyond your wildest dreams, take your and deliver some worthless program, system or ebook that flat our does not (these individuals who market like this are in it for the short term money - to make a fast buck and they may make money once but they will need have repeat customers and never have a real long term business that can provide income if they tsp peddling their worthless rubbish.) You need to plan for the long term. The second reason many fail is because they FAIL TO TAKE ACTION !
It makes sense.. no action = no result,
small action = small result,
Take massive action with conviction and determination and get massive results !
There are two things which you need to remember:
I read a post on Apsense website recently that made me smile to self for a moment but then made me feel sorry for the person who wrote it because they had been so mislead into thinking that they would become a millionaire over night online, that when it didn't work out they lost all faith in online marketing completely....and sadly will likely never make a penny online as a result.
They said "no body is making 10K per month or more online it is impossible".
WRONG ! it is completely possible and the more seasoned marketers are able to make this and more, and it is being done by hundreds of people who understand the basic rules you need to follow. There no reason why YOU can not build your self a business that makes thousands of dollars per month, just don't expect it to happen overnight.
The Secret To Financial Freedom Is Effort, Determination.....
& Multiple Streams Of Residual Income !
Having multiple streams of income means your income comes from several sources... so you have more than one flow of money coming in. Residual income means you have more than enough income to cover your outgoing bills etc PLUS you get paid again and again after you did the work once.
Here are some tips which will help you towards your goal of financial freedom....
Firstly, remember that you will always have to make some sacrifices. You will be required to expend money, time and energy to get any business off the ground. Most recruiters misrepresent the opportunity when they harp on the fact that anyone can do it, without mentioning the high fallout rate.
This means that you would have to sacrifice some or much of the time that you would otherwise spend doing the things you enjoy or in the company of friends and family. This will certainly produce stress and resentment and you need to be prepared in advance to handle the consequences.
You will moreover need the extra energy, over and above your normal quota given over to your regular job, family and household, to do the things necessary for your business. So you need to tap into your extra reserves: develop your drive to succeed and keep yourself motivated by telling yourself that all this will be worth your while in the long run.
As for the financial sacrifices, there are means to gradually absorb the burden or even remove it completely, but upfront, you have to allocate some money to set things moving.
The strategy is to be able to see these sacrifices as something positive and productive. So you need to be optimistic and consider these as investments for your future and your independence. Consider the advantages of prudence and fortitude: don’t be disheartened by initial failures but learn from them. You can make your sacrifices and your failures the steeping stones to your success.
Your success is the one that you make and give to yourself. You can think of it as your reward, as something which has already been made out in your name, but your bit is to deserve it, to make it your own. So go out there and seek out your success that is waiting for you to grab it. There shall be times when you will be sorely tested, but you will have to grit your teeth, clench your fists and grind it out. At times like these, simply shut your mind to all the negative input, and press on keeping you goal and your vision in mind. All this is much easier said than done, but it also the long and difficult road all must travel to success.
The Internet Marketing world has come a long way. To start an online business and compete in a pool of sharks requires wit, technical advantages and the ability to create and innovate.

Origins of PLR
Picture this scenario – Ever wonder how did all the big chain supermarkets in the world all have their own line of cereal, washing detergent, soap etc.?
Well the fact is, most of them get theirs from a big main supplier. Once they get their hands on the goods, they then modify the products by adding perfume, coloring, labels and packaging and voila!

A lot of businesses that sell a product (or service) mistake its "features" for "advantages" (the nature of the product) again and again. How come? Because they design features into the product. They don't, nevertheless, experience the advantages... Buyers do.
And the buyers want the advantages, not the features. So you have to deliver advantages, not features. Don't mix up the two on your sales page or presentation about the nature of your product.
Your product intent is your product's most potent advantage, combined with a substantial, unique aspect of your business. It answers that hardest question. Why should likely buyers purchase your product, from your company?
Here's how to develop this...
What is it that you are selling? Put down what your product is and does.
You ought to know and comprehend each feature and benefit the product might have. Writing styles ought to always vary depending upon the desired audience. You ought to research who uses and buys the product to establish the tone and style of your audience and produce a unique voice for your product.
What is the advantage to your buyer? What trouble does it cure, or what gain does it supply?
It's frequently not adequate to simply list the features of a product as your audience might not always comprehend them. Utilize descriptive language to communicate how any one characteristic will benefit the customer and how buying the item will make their life simpler. Potential customers wish to know what the product will do for them.
What is unique about your product? About you? What makes you stick out from the competition?
Continue working on this till you are able to distinctly separate yourself from the field. There has to be a convincing reason for doing business with you, rather than your competitor. It’s crucial when composing product descriptions to be concise. Utilize common language and words that are simple to understand. Clearly describe the product without becoming too technical or ho-hum so the reader remains engaged.
Summarize the above into one tight, mighty; motivating phrase that you can use again and again that will persuade your buyer to do business with you, to trade their cash for the advantages delivered by your product.
The best product descriptions always invite a sale. Be originative and encourage the likely purchaser to buy your product by telling them precisely how to do it. As you begin to work through the above steps, you might discover this to be a lot more difficult than it appears. Don't quit!...
You must show the nature of the product. If it was simple, everybody would be making a fortune! Muster up a tight, sharp product intention that sells your likely buyer.
There's a 2nd advantage to this exercise. It will clear up your own vision of this monetization process! Write your product intention down. Keep it unwaveringly fixed in your mind.
Match your product intention to your ideal buyer’s most potent motivator, either "hurting" or "something to gain".
Hurting -- individuals feel deprived, nearly all in either wealthiness, wellness, love, or happiness. Show individuals how you assist in the area that they're disadvantaged in. Make it clear that you empathize with your visitor's trouble and that you have the remedy for her hurting or fear of loss.
Something to gain -- emphasize the single most crucial favorable advantage that you offer to your buyer, in language that she will value.
If your product intention answers the "What's in it for me?" inquiry, you're midway to the sale.
Mobile marketing refers to advertising through a mobile device. In many cases, mobile marketing does not involve the internet and so it is not necessarily an online money making method. It capitalizes on the fact that people constantly use their mobile devices. Thus, there is a greater chance of ensuring that one’s advertisement is seen with a mobile device than there would be through email or traditional print journalism.
There are a few different mobile marketing methods that are popular, including SMS (Short Message Service), MMS (Multimedia Message Service), in-game mobile marketing, and mobile web marketing. These different methods target the different ways in which people use their mobile devices.
SMS marketing involves marketing via a cell phones short message service, such as text messaging. It has been shown to be a highly effective method for making money because there is a strong probability that the message will be read. Cell phones typically do not have the spam filter that email has, and so a company has a good chance of reaching their potential customer. SMS remains a safe advertising method because the cell phone carriers are comprehensive in policing the network. However, there is still a stigma that remains with SMS marketing, as many people view it disparagingly as another form of spam advertising.
There are a number of different methods for SMS marketing. One is for companies to send text messages to an email address, although this does not ensure that it will reach someone’s mobile device. The most popular method involves short codes, which are five or six digit numbers that are assigned by the mobile operator and programmed to send messages at a predetermined rate. This method is popular because it is safe, reliable, and ensures that people will receive the message. However, at a price of $500-$1000 a month, it is prohibitively expensive for many companies. Nevertheless, SMS marketing is remarkably effective and has the greatest possibility for being read, as the majority of messages are read within several minutes of being sent.
Multimedia Message Service (MMS) is less popular than SMS marketing but still a viable option for those looking to make money through mobile marketing. MMS involves a timed slideshow of images, text messages, or other electronic material. The slideshows can be alluring as they are more image-based than the text messages characterizing SMS marketing. However, the slideshows are also greater in scope and can be an irritant to potential customers.
PPC adverts are also served on mobile phones by such networks as adbrite and other, actually PPC campaigns on mobile can cost very little, Click Here to watch a video on how you can past as little as 1 cent per click and reach millions of mobile users in any niche. PPC on mobile still remains a relatively untapped market particularly for IM.
Another method for mobile marketing is in-game mobile marketing, which capitalizes on the large amount of people who use their mobile device for playing games. There are many different types of games that are played using mobile devices, including social networking games and more casual games, both of which are quite popular. Many companies have begun to realize the immense potential for advertising through these games and choose either to promote their product via the game or sponsor the game.
Mobile web marketing is characterized by advertising on websites that are intended for use in mobile devices. It is not drastically different from advertising through a computer, except that the web sites that are targeted usually involve those that people visit on their cell phone rather than their computer. This includes advertising through search engines, and there are also a number of mobile advertisers as well.
Each of the mobile marketing methods is useful and reflects the many different ways in which people interact with their mobile devices. In many ways, the mobile device has supplanted the computer with regard to how people consume information and communicate with one another. Mobile marketing capitalizes on the growing popularity of mobile devices as instruments of information acquisition and communication.
