One of the Most Common Questions People Ask Before Starting an Online Business
By Suzanne Manziek
One of the most common questions usually asked before people embark upon the sometimes very confusing, manipulating and competitive world of internet marketing and online business is, how Long does it take to actually start making money? I am writing based on my own experience in online business opportunities.
This is such a loaded question because it can be answered in so many ambiguous ways. Some will claim that it can happen overnight, others will tell you only a week or a month. The truth of the matter is that it usually depends entirely upon the individual running the business. No one can actually and truthfully answer this question for you, but I can give you some suggestions on how to figure it out for yourself.
I realize that this is not what you want to hear but if you understand how most of these online businesses work then you will understand why no one can truthfully and factually answer this question. Becoming an online entrepreneur entails three things; the product, the marketing to sell the product and the customers to buy the product. The product is determined by which business you choose to invest in and in most cases the marketing and the customers are created by you the online entrepreneur. How can anyone predict for you, how well you will do this job? Therefore the answer lies within you.
My suggestion would be to look very hard at the product, the company offering it, the compensation plan and the technical support you will receive to reach the goals set before you and then you can answer this question for yourself.
Most online businesses are based upon filling a lead funnel and marketing to that lead funnel for sales. There are many ways to build your list and unless you already have knowledge about how to do this you must have technical support to make it work. I can promise you this; if you choose the right opportunity and if you work it some everyday you can create an extra income stream. How large of an income stream is going to be based on the compensation plan and the effectiveness of the system you choose.
