Hello everybody. My name is Carl and in my younger days, (pre internet), I tried many home based plans with very little success. I was a bit naive and an easy target. For the past couple of years I've been looking at online business ideas and the first thing I noticed, which I sort of expected, is just how much rubbish is out there. So I thought I'd share a few of my ideas. I may be stating the obvious but hopefully they may be of some help. Firstly take time to do your research. Most plans look good at first sight so it is important to delve as deep as you can to fully understand everything about the business to decide whether or not it can actually make you money. If you are a newcomer to online marketing it is vital that you find a business that offers complete support and mentoring. Help should never be more than a phone call or email away. The industry is very competitive. Go in the wrong direction and and all you will succeed in doing is losing money. Get things right and the rewards, without question, can be very high. It is therefore an absolute must that you have somebody proven in the field leading you in the right direction. A lot of plans claim that you will be able to sit back and watch the ??????s fly into your bank account. How nice this would be. But the truth is that in order to succeed you must be prepared to put the time and effort in. This doesn't have to mean high expenses. Most people are looking for instant overnight success. Put the effort in and work at the business and you're already one step ahead of the majority. There are good businesses out there. Do your research and you will find what you're looking for.
