Find Another Way if You Have to but Keep Moving

What can we do when things just seem to turn against us? It definitely isn’t lay down and die and accept that we are in ruination. If we are sick we go to the doctor and try to find a cure. If we are broke we try to find more income. Sometimes that takes a while and a bit of creativity.

In the meantime though, we can’t keep sinking deeper until things change. We have to take some kind of action. If there is nothing you can do at this moment, and want to keep your good credit rating and honor your contracts with vendors, you may try to reduce expenses.

They seriously are not as ‘hard-nosed’ as you probably imagine. They really want to keep your business and appreciate that you are not just kicking them to the curb. So ask for the Loyalty department or even ask for the department where you cancel and of course don’t, but just let them talk you out of it. It may represent only $5 to $25 here and there for a few months, but it all adds up at the end of the day.

Just saying – do you need the latest, greatest television programs on your cable if you don’t think you can pay your rent? Of course you don’t. Could you take a 500 MB reduction in speed on the Internet if it saved you a few dollars? Of course you could (*if it is decent in the first place).

There is a lot to be said about perception and feelings. You know it may be after you make a bunch of phone calls in desperation you only saved a total $50 a month. That doesn’t help much with the rent but you know what? You will feel better – you will feel like you are going to work it out and $50 might pay the utility bill or something necessary. They will still get their pound of flesh, but you will feel like you are a valued customer because someone negotiated with you and treated you kindly when you were feeling like dirt.

This of course brings us to a good reason to start an online home business right now. Make your computer pay you; make your utilities and your rent pay you back. If you have a business running at home you will see how they will pay you back a percentage of what you spend for them. Check out the US Government (IRS.gov) website on small businesses and see all the expenses you might deduct if you have a business in your home. This is not even to mention how you might have a little savings account generated by your home business to get you through tough times.

Can You Write Content for Business?

Let me ask you another question. Can you talk? Well then you can write. If you have the ability to carry on a conversation whether verbal or email, etc, then you can write. It is that simple. Yet you see blog after blog that is completely blank or that hasn’t been used in months. This is a huge waste of free marketing and advertising. Why?

write on!

Why? Lazy? Busy? If you are really serious about having your own online business then you have to overcome lazy and busy. If you do, there will be no so-called ‘writer’s block’. You see writer’s block is just not having any ideas about what to write about. But no excuse there either because this is about your business – your experience with learning the ropes of an online business, what you are learning, what you like or don’t like about any particular aspect of Internet marketing; what you would change.

Best of all this is a golden opportunity to introduce people to your product or service. A blog is a perfect place to explain all of the features and benefits of becoming a member or buying a product. You can go into any details you want to about it from basics to more technical. If you don’t have a track record yourself yet, then you can still honestly give a review based on what others have said and be sure to ‘quote’ whoever it is.

There are a million things to write about in the world – just about everything that happens is worth writing about. However again with having a specific subject like an online home business you can even make a list of keywords that you build over time and then you can use them in the topic or subject lines of your document as well as throughout the text or content.

That is the easiest way to get started writing even if you start out with 5 keywords and you build to 10 or 20 and of course don’t forget to create ‘long-tailed’ keyword phrases. An example of this would be if your root key word is ‘home business’ then you can add to that, ‘online home business’, ‘building a successful home business’, ‘making money from home business’ – you get it – phrases that use the root keyword in some meaningful way.

Once you start being aware of this you will be surprised how often you are dragging out your notepad to add another phrase that you can use to write something. They can actually be the subject or topic and you build your composition around them. It’s a very easy way to learn to write well for your business.

Online Home Business

Everything moves very fast on the Internet. We like that. It makes everything work better with an instant response. We can get a direct question answered from a live person, and at the same time we have the most recent up-to-date information available on just about any topic.

internet @ speed of light!

It would stand to reason that when we have a business online that it can and does often move right along at the ‘speed of light’. That is there are likely frequent changes. These changes may be in several areas that can impact your business. There can be new and improved techniques for marketing and advertising; there can be new and exciting opportunities we want to get in on at the inception, just to name a few possible changes.

The point is not to hang back but to be ready to change at any time to take full advantage. This doesn’t mean to be overly impetuous and make changes that you haven’t researched and thought out. It just means to keep an open mind and be ready to consider anything new that may have an impact on your bottom line – your profit.

If your business is brand new the profit may be in the future. You need to have the ability to see the details of what is going on today, as well as to see the ‘big picture’ – what you hope to accomplish. It is very important that you understand it is not likely to happen immediately. Most businesses require that they be developed over time.

With this said though being that on the Internet everything is so much faster, easier and more inexpensive than most other platforms, you don’t need to ‘look forward’ to the customary ‘5-years to profit’ statistic that is part of usual business theory. It can be MUCH faster than that online.

Part of the reason it takes so long to show a profit offline is because of the money going out of pocket for various things you don’t need online (such as office or store rent, insurance, staff, inventory, etc.) This is money spent when nothing is coming in and may be over a very long period so you can see how that would add up and be much harder to overcome to realize a profit.

It is much easier and faster to do business even online if you have a little money to spend to help you get the things done that are necessary to conduct your business. If you don’t even have a little bit of money then you can learn how to do many things yourself for free. Either way it will require some time and some effort to build your business. The point is that you have everything going for you as long as you keep an open mind and keep progressing.
