Reasons People Fail to Make Money Online

Written by Elvis Michael on November 5, 2014

Managing a home business can potentially be more successful and lucrative than working a typical office job. For starters, startup costs are often minimal and the business can be indefinitely scalable, among many other benefits. Sadly, many startups still fail to make money from home due to certain patterns and mentalities that ultimately prevent owners from reaching their full potential.

Failure to Establish a Firm Idea

Making money online can be approached in virtually endless ways, thus making the very opportunity a double-edged sword. For example, while many of us focus on a passionate subject matter, we often fail to acknowledge its profitability in the long run. Passion can certainly help you maintain momentum and exceed within your niche, but ensuring that your market is in high demand will ultimately determine your level of success.

Failure to Network

Engagement is all the rage these days, and most home businesses largely depend on user outreach to maintain a successful online business. Not making a prominent social splash can eventually come back to haunt you; therefore, ensure that you build close relationships with your followers on all major social media platforms and establish relationships with other business owners in your field. Reciprocation can go a long way.

Quitting too Soon

This is perhaps the biggest reason people fail at making money online and running a business successfully. We have so many opportunities available that staying focused on one market is next to impossible if you are too desperate for success. Treat your home business as a marathon as opposed to a sprint, acknowledging that success will only come gradually after consistent effort and perseverance.

Whatever your goal is, tackle it professionally and give it your full, undivided attention. This could mean spending sleepless nights building your online business, reinvesting most of your earnings, and most importantly leaning through trial and error.

3 Crucial Steps to Perform After Publishing Your Blog Post

Written by Elvis Michael on November 5, 2014

You have just published your latest blog post with pride and joy, pleased that the world will happily absorb a piece of your knowledge. But what happens now? Whether your website is relatively new or already receives traffic, conducting these steps will result in additional viewers and higher engagement to your latest creation.

Send it to Email Subscribers

Your email subscribers signed up to your newsletter because they are hungry for your content – and yet, many bloggers neglect this step by sending only occasional tips and related offers. If you do not yet have an active newsletter, on the other hand, start building one by offering an enticing gift or a compelling reason for people to sign up – such as the convenience of receiving your latest blog posts straight to their inbox.

Share on Social Media

Social media means everything these days, as people spend countless hours absorbing and sharing content with friends and family through multiple channels. Luckily, each platform allows for specific blog types and different audiences, which means there’s no excuse to neglect sharing your latest content with the world. If you have a recipe blog, for example, how about posting pictures of your favorite dish on places like Pinterest? Analyze your blog post’s nature and take advantage of the most suitable network; after all, they are available and free for the taking.

Blogger Outreach

While reaching out to your readers provides additional traffic, connecting with other bloggers in your niche could make your content truly blow up. Networking with authoritative figures means building a long-lasting relationship with them; comment on their content, share it with your own audience and provide constructive feedback where necessary. They will acknowledge you, reciprocate and help you reach new heights through their own resources as a direct result.

There are many more ways to reach your target audience, of course, but these core strategies should be included each and every time you hit that ‘Publish’ button on your blog.

Online Publishers Can Face Criminal Charges, So Be Careful What You Write

Written by 9rules Blog on November 4, 2014

There’s such a thing as freedom of speech. You can publish anything you want online, right? You’re not bound to strict laws such as print media is.

There is such a thing as freedom of speech, but laws do apply to online publishers, and if you are not aware of them, you just might find yourself facing a lawsuit, or worse, criminal charges.

First things first. You have to know the laws in your country or state. If, for example, you are registered in California, then you have to familiarize yourself with the state laws. If you do find yourself in the unfortunate position of facing charges, the first thing to do then is to get in touch with a reputable Los Angeles criminal lawyer so that you are guided from the get-go.
