    It looks like there are a lot of experienced entrepreneurs here, as well as people who are totally new to online marketing. What would you say your best tip would be for newbies who want to start on online business?
    Peace.

    Whatever you decided to do understand the marketing strategies to be successful and make sure you can apply them and/or learn them.

    It all comes down to marketing and driving traffic to websites. Use offline and online marketing tactics for home business success.

    Additionally, be about the business of creating monthly residual income. Commit to monthly residual so you can have monthly residual.

    You should pick a training program with an action plan that offers your structure and keeps you on track

    MOIS by Kimberely Hoffman is a good one

    I like Victoria's advice.

    Definitely try to do something every day, even if it's just reading some free info online. Nothing you do is wasted.

    I say stick with one thing until it is mastered and don't move on to anything else until that pays.

    Very good advice here.

    You are off to a good start because you are doing the one thing that I would advise - and that's asking people who have already been there!

    Keep in touch with forums like this, ask questions and watch what those who are successful are doing.

    All the advise is good.
    The best combination is LEARN , there is a lot to learn, and do NOT give up.
    The longer you work at it the easier it gets.

    Thank you Andy.

    I also would like to add one can run a scam check.
    I do suspect scams will be fewer with the FTC cracking down on marketers/advertisers.

    For the longest time, I would only look at promotions that were referred by friends or reputable online companies.
    There are still some absolute jewels out there by unknowns.

    Most can feel it in their guts, whether something it too good to be true or a genuine opportunity.

    I love this forum, because there is such a wide range of knowledge.


    Cheers!

    The best tip I can give you is....Persistence.

    Once you've chosen a direction, learned a marketing strategy and other essential information, create a daily plan for effort toward the goals you want to achieve, and stick to them for at least 90 days (takes that long to see any real results in anything online)

    Consistent effort towards the goals you set for yourself is the only way to achieve success.

    Good sound advise........

    Let me just add....learn and then learn......

    IM is very hard at first and gets easier as you "learn"....
    It takes some time........it is not get rich quick...


    Stick with it.....mistakes do not count...because no one will know...
    Seek help in the forums but, weigh the advise. Some is good, some is self serving..
    Best of luck to you.........

    Find a proven "system" that works and don't reinvent the wheel...repeat what works...Don't join a business and do nothing...mlm is a great industry but it will give you back what you put into it! Hope this helps

    I totally agree. In my opinion selling on ebay is a good start for newbies. Ebay is a big scam free company and you can easily start there.

    You are totally right. You should make the best out of one technique and its corresponding niche then you move on to another one if you have success with the first and duplicate for more earnings.

    James Peter: What would you say your best tip would be for newbies who want to start on online business?
    "Be sure of your purpose for wanting to start your business in the first place, and then make a commitment to use the business as a stepping stone to achieve that purpose."

    I believe that establishing the right mindset at the outset is critical to the experience and the outcome. You'll need passion, perspective and persistence to keep you on the path. There'll be obstacles, challenges and frustrations, but the right mindset will keep you motivated and on track.

    A lot of excellent advice & has been previously mentioned,
    It is very important to stick with your laid out action plan &
    not to move from it until you've completed all of the tasks.
