Making Extra Money
Posted by Tollfreenumber.ORG at December 5th, 2013
We are constantly talking to people starting up new businesses, especially around the end and beginning of the year. Everyone wants to know how to make their business not only survive, but THRIVE! If you’re reading this blog post you’re probably like most people wanting to start a business, meaning that you want to start off slow, likely keeping your day job at first until you can build your own business up to where you’re making enough to get by without your current job.
- Many people decide to start a website because there’s a low overhead – and if you’re not familiar with the biz lingo, try and get used to it. As you grow, you’ll need to know the ins and out of having your own business, or at least be able to afford to hire someone that knows! Having a storefront can be nice but expensive so starting out of your home office or a small outside the home office works well.
- Next up, figure out what you’re best at and what you love. Don’t overshoot thinking that you would love cooking but usually don’t do it – that’s a recipe for disaster! Pun intended! Decide what you’re good at. What skills have you taken from other jobs, projects, or even what you helped your parents out with at one time or another that just stuck with you.
- Find your niche. Is there a demand for what you want to offer? As well, how can you improve against your competition? Have you even checked out your competition yet? We’ll wait while you go do that now…
- Okay, now that you know your competition, make sure you’re ready for a long road in front of you. Nothing takes off overnight and you may have a few years where you feel like you’re working for free or less than you should. Don’t let this get you down! As long as you stay persistent, you will succeed!
Which reminds us! Have you ever searched for something on Google and found an article you wanted to read at a particular blog site? (Well, you did just now but besides that?) And then you notice the date of the article was a few years past and that, since then, it seems as though the blog has been abandoned by it’s owner? They stopped updating at some point and you think to yourself, “Huh, I’m here now, years after the post. If they would have kept it up, they’d have a ton more articles and their site would be that much more popular!” You’d be correct in your thinking.
So, take your interests, take your talent, and put them to good use! The first steps are the most difficult, we promise!
