Anticipation Of My First Sale
What’s the a biggest motivational tool out there when you start an internet home-based business? Well for me it was the anticipation of making my first sale.
When I started my internet home-based business I quickly learned that nothing comes for free and you have to work at it to become successful. I thought that I could make lots of money in a short period of time; well I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Yes, I got into the get-rich-quick scams, to begin with, searching on the internet for ways to make money fast. First, there was the “get paid for doing surveys” scheme. Then I thought that I could sell things on e-bay to make a quick buck. While there are lots of people doing this it’s not a way to get rich quickly. Next was the pyramid scheme. As time went on the money kept going out and nothing was coming in.
I could have quite there but I was determined. I changed my way of thinking and started to search for legitimate ways to make money online. That’s when I found my first no “B.S” internet home-based business. I learned everything there was to learn about it, applied the strategies and then reread it all to see if there was anything I missed. Doing those simple things can make all the difference.
While working my new business online I soon learned that one business wasn’t going to be enough to sustain me working at home. So I decided to take on four more legit home-based businesses so that I could obtain multiple streams of income. If I could get each of them making $500.00/month that would be enough to allow me to stay at home. I dedicated myself to learning everything about them as well and all the while I kept repeating the things I had learned. Repetition and Duplication are the keys to making any home-based business work.
Things started to happen after a month and a half had gone by. My site was indexed from the search engines and I got a few signups to my affiliate programs. This in itself was enough to keep me plugging along, but still no sales. I was more determined than ever now, spending countless hours at my desk.
And then it happened. I got my first sale. I couldn’t tell you how happy I was.
Things have been picking up more steadily each and every month. The more I apply the things I’ve learned the more successful I become. The more I repeat things I’ve learned the more successful I become and the more I track and duplicate things I’ve learned….well you get the point.
