5 questions to ask yourself, before starting an internet marketing business…
There are many factors that go into building a successful internet marketing business, not the least of which is readiness. Unfortunately, many people get started building their business before they’re actually ready to. The result is generally a lackluster business. That’s not what you want, right?
You want a business that helps you reach your financial and lifestyle dreams and goals. Let’s take a look at five questions that help you decide if you’re truly ready to start an internet marketing business.
1. Do You Have A Business Idea That You’re Excited About?
If you’re not excited about your business idea, rest assured your motivation will fade quickly. You’ll be left with a business that you just don’t want, and that means a lot of wasted time, energy, and money. Make sure you have a business idea that you are excited about now and can imagine being excited about for years to come.
2. Do You Have A Little Bit Of Free Time Each Week?
You don’t need to spend forty hours a week on your business. You can, but you certainly don’t have to. However, you do need to be able to spend some time each week on your business. At the very least you need to be able to plan your business and hire the right people to carry out the tasks you need accomplished.
3. Are You Good At Setting Goals for Yourself?
A great business idea is a dream. When you set deadlines, get specific, and establish a way to measure success then you’re taking that dream and making it a goal. Now, there’s a knack to setting a good goal. It needs to be specific. For example, “I want to start a business” isn’t a good goal. “My internet marketing business about saving money for college will launch in three months” is a better goal. It’s more specific and it has a deadline. Of course, you’ll want to set smaller goals to support this single large goal.
4. Are You Comfortable Being A Beginner?
If you’ve never started an internet marketing business then you’re a beginner and you know what… that’s okay. It means you’re starting with a clean slate, and with the right guidance and motivation you can get off to a quick start. However, you have to be comfortable being a beginner. If you’re a perfectionist who has to know everything before they’re willing to try something new, then a mindset shift is required.
5. Are You Motivated And Ready To Start Today?
There are a million excuses why you shouldn’t start your internet marketing business today. You probably have used a few of them yourself. However, at the end of the day if you’re excited and motivated to start then let all of those excuses fade away. The only thing that matters is your desire to get started.
So what’s the verdict? Are you ready to start an online business today? Go back and work through these questions. Answer them honestly. When you can answer yes to all five then it’s time to move forward and take positive action.
