So, you want to work from home, earn a good income and maybe give up the day job to do it full time?
Many people work from home either part time, full time or do it whilst holding down their day job.
Today’s blog post is to help you face some reality and encourage you to keep your feet on the ground when considering what you are going to do.
Key things To Consider if You Want To Work From Home
It is important not to believe everything you see or read on the internet.
Everyone is trying to plug their business to you, putting out lots of hype about how you can quickly a earn 6 figure income.
Don’t, get me wrong, some people truly do. In fact, many of my friends do.
For the vast majority this isn’t the case and the last webinar I attended it was stated that nearly 95% of people who work from home online, fail and quit very quickly.
Buying the flavour of the week. It promises you grandeur and looks good.
Everything you see looks great and you think – “I have to do this, everyone else is. This is the answer for me”
You dip your toes but not fully into something
Pitching – You lack confidence so you pitch constantly about your opportunity to people you don’t know
You have too many sources of traffic with zero leads
98% of money going out but none coming in
You provide no value in exchange for information
The list can go on.
Can you relate to any of it?
I could add a lot more things to this list that can contribute to failure when working online from home.
Running a business,carrying out work from home has to be seen as a serious enterprise. It is not a hobby and must be treated like any other business venture.
Firstly, you have to have a plan – a Strategic Plan which includes your vision, mission, values, goals and objectives and an action plan.
Vision – Where are you going – What do you want ie Freedom, be your own boss, more money etc.
Mission – What is your purpose? Who are your going to serve and how?
Values – What do you stand for? Who are you?
Goals – What does success look like for you?
Objectives– What do you have to do to accomplish the goals you have set
Action Plan -Have a plan to enable you to achieve your objectives.
You have to choose what company you want to be involved with and decide what it is you want to do.
Do you want to be involved in Direct Sales/Network Marketing?
Or maybe you prefer Affiliate Marketing.?
You might want to sell your own products at some point as well.
It is vital that you choose something you believe in wholeheartedly.
Be yourself and create your own brand basing your efforts on Attraction Marketing – i.e. getting people to come to you as opposed to the other way around.
Attraction Marketing is a longer term, passive approach, however, it is something you should be working on constantly whilst at the same time, actively prospecting people for your business.
Remember, prospecting and marketing are two different things.
Ignore the spam fest that goes on across all the Social Media sites and truly research who you want to work with and why.
Be realistic and don’t believe all the hype that for just $7 you are going to make it big.
Working from home can be easy – it can be hard too.
Treat your work from home seriously, learn as much as you can and you will succeed.
