Operating a business online is just like operating a traditional business. You are going to need to put in long hours and be patient. Nothing comes easy, but it is worth it when it comes. Just don't give up!

I've been working on Internet Marketing for nearly two years now and I have only recently become successful! I didn't give up, though there were many many times that I wanted to.

I figured I will see results within 2 years, that is my goal. I keep smiling and am happy with my dream. :wink:



I agree with you. I am grateful for the time I can be with my kids, not wasting time driving to and from work especially with gas prices going back up and no daycare costs. I can see my kids play and have time with them. My family moved closer to my husband's working location and he is now home more with the kids too. It is great - I have only been a WAHM for about a full week and enjoying all aspects of it. I just need to network more to obtain more projects that I can do for others.

Wow Staci, only a week! You are much further along than I was at week one. I was still in a daze, trying to decide what to do and how. :oops:

I agree with everyone else, it takes time, hard work and a lot of dedication to build a successful business & income. When you have mentors helping you, it can be easier because you avoid some of the stumbling blocks, but even so, it still takes time to build your reputation, your lists, client base, etc.

I personally work much harder running my business than I ever did in an out-of-the-home job. I'm more mentally and physically exhausted at the end of each week. Who knew typing could be so exhausting! :lol: J/K - it's much more than that.

Thank you, I have had great mentors and great advice to help guide me where I am today! I just started my website the middle of May. I agree I am doing good but have a long ways to go to be successful.

I have been in business for almost 3 months and the only thing that has kept me going is the support group that is part of my business. I didn't know anything about optimizing my site for the search engines or keywords. The support group helped me out a lot and still are.
Do you think that sometimes we invest in a business after reading about how it made someone wealthy, but then realise it takes a lot of hard work to get your business noticed and therefore will take time to earn any money. I can see things slowly improving but know it will take a while.

Hey Linda,

A lot of us get suckered into the get-rich-quick deals. The old saying "if it looks too good to be true, it usually is," really is a good thing to keep in mind. ;)

Keep your chin up. It does get easier.

I have just started my business and have found most of the useful info on forums! When I first started I paid out for ads and everything else believing that the next product would be the one to make my business work! I then discovered keywords and SEO etc from forums and support groups and my business is slowly growing. I hope that in 6 months to a year I will be getting a decent income.

Although the internet accelerates results comapared to other marketing mediums, sometimes things can take a little while before they start paying dividends.

Make sure you tweak your copy sometimes to test reactions and remain focussed. The beauty of internet marketing is that it is infinitely measurable, old direct marketers would have been overjoyed with the quanitity and quality of information available on each campaign they ran.
