A Home Internet Marketing Business- What Are The Pitfalls
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you looking for a home internet marketing business? Maybe you have been made redundant from your job or you’re a stay at home mum wanting to make some money from home whilst minding the kids. Or perhaps you are looking for a career change or just to earn some extra dollars to get ahead financially. Whatever the reason, you need think about what it takes to run a successful home internet marketing business.


Some internet businesses, like affiliate marketing can largely run on automatic once they are set up but you will still need to put in a consistent amount of time most days. There’s always tweaking to do and new campaigns to research if you really want to grow your income. Have you got a few hours each day to work?


If you start a marketing campaign you need to commit to seeing it through. Many an internet marketer has failed because they didn’t stay with it when no sales where coming in yet. They were probably so close. Like any other business, it takes time to get established.


Sometimes it takes a leap of faith to believe you will succeed at this, especially if you’re new to internet marketing. Persistence is the key. Keep doing. Keep learning. Once you have made your first sale, you will be inspired to multiply that success and feel confident that you are on the right track.

A Positive Attitude

You will probably find yourself being bombarded with negative comments from family and friends. A lot of people will tell you that you can’t make money on the internet and that internet marketing is a scam. That’s because they don’t really understand what it is. Sure, there are a lot of scams online and they’re the ones we all here about on TV. What we don’t hear about are the thousands of successful transactions that fulfil customer’s needs in many a home internet marketing business every day. So be prepared to be misunderstood and criticised for the amount of time you spend gazing at a computer screen. You need to keep a positive attitude.


This is a BiG one. Especially for me. You have to be disciplined to do the work. There will be days when you will fluff about, checking your emails, logging into Facebook, looking at shopping sites for bargains, anything but getting started on the day’s work. Sometimes you just won’t be in the mood. But just like if you were an employee, you still have to get on with the job whether you feel like it or not. You won’t make money by putting in a half hearted effort. One good thing about working from home is that you can work at a time of day that suits you.

I hope I haven’t squashed you desire to persue a home internet marketing business. I just want you to know what you are in for.

Don’t make the same mistakes I made starting up a home internet marketing business. I finally found a great source of honest, reliable training and support by those who actually do it. Check it out now at
