Must Do Things To Make Money With Your Home Business

For people looking for the best home business ideas, there are many training courses and books that have been written on how to make money online. In this article I want to highglight two things to keep in mind that you must do when it comes to making money on the Internet.

1. The first point I want to make is that the majority of the time that you spend online every day should be marketing your home business. I'll even go one step further and say that you should spend a good portion of your time every day blogging.

Search engines love blogs with fresh content and so do readers. There are many resources available online that can teach you how to blog successfully. For example ProBlogger.Net is one of the best websites online for teaching people how to blog.

You can learn everything you need to make money on the Internet as a blogger just by following other successful bloggers who hang out at this site. I would call this an authority site because of the amount of content available to you, and the quality is outstanding.

Blogging allows you to make money in a niche writing about things you enjoy. It also allows you to generate a tremendous amount of free traffic over a long period of time. Therefore having a quality blog with high traffic is an excellent way to sell products, sell advertising, and make money.

2. Be cautious about the advice that you accept when it comes to home business ideas and how to make money on the internet. It is very easy for a person to call themselves an expert and take money from others who do not know any better.
You see this happen all the time! Someone makes a couple of sales and then decides that the market they are going to target is the 'how to make money' market.

There certainly is nothing wrong with being in this market if you know what you're talking about. However as an Internet marketing newbie yourself you need to be cautious about accepting advice from someone who does not have the credentials to back it up.

If you are unsure about someone's credentials go to various Internet marketing forums and ask about them. For example you can go to the Warrior Forum and quickly find out whether someone is legitimate or not.

With social networking you can also make friends and see for yourself who is a good person to follow the advice of. One place to do this is with where you can build up a list of followers and watch their updates.

In summary, these are two things you must do to make money online. Watch out who you accept advice from, learn how to blog, and become an expert at it.

Thanks for the reminder that we should not blindly accept advice from people who are supposedly experts. They certainly can lead us astray...on the way to us making money for them :)

We really have to do our due diligence on who really are the real experts and who possess proofs of their successes to back it up.

Hi Mal

There a few points you discuss here that are really important if you want to build a successful internet business and one of the most important is spending the majority of your time online marketing your business. Unfortunately it is very easy to get sidetracked and too much time gets wasted on reading emails or surfing the net.

Hi Mal,

A great reminder about who we accept advice from. Many times the person that is an expert is more interested in making the sale than delivering the complete truth.
I'll have to agree with Michelle about time spent marketing your business. It is too easy to become side tracked and spend your time reading email or surfing.
Thanks for the reminders Mal.

Hi Mal,
Thanks for the pointing out that we should not just accept advice from people who claim to be gurus.
As Michelle mentioned marketing your business is the most important aspect of a Internet home business and spending time doing that rather then reading the advice of others will lead to success.
