How Not to Earn or Make Online Money

The world of the Internet is a great place for you to meet people and network. People credit having met their future significant others through a popular chat room or forum, or a social networking or even dating site! The World Wide Web is also a good place for you to express yourself, to talk about your opinions openly, and to freely show how you like blue M&Ms, want to mow your lawn but don’t have the energy to do so, and even vote for an independent candidate because your conventional Democrat or Republican just won’t cut it. And yes, the Internet is also a great marketplace where you can sell things or buy them, and where you can earn money if you know how.

There are, however, many ways that you can go wrong with making online money, and you will need to exercise a lot of common sense in order to know how to maneuver your way through a now increasingly crowded Internet arena. But just how common is common sense? Here is a list of things that you should not do when starting out with your business online.

Go it alone. There are many online services offered by experts, and sometimes for low fees, that will allow you to understand the ins and outs of the Internet. In fact, these services come in many different packages to suit your lifestyle. You can earn your degree and go back to school through online means, or you can order packets of advice and introductory materials to allow you to understand how to go about putting up your business online. You will need a lot of help in setting things up and getting the word out on your website, products, and services, so don’t think that you can do everything on your own. In fact, by micromanaging, you increase your chances of your business getting ruined entirely even before it finds its way online.

Forget about social networking sites. The formula for success in marketing is networking, and you should use the online version of your walk-the-conference-floor-and-hand-out-your-calling-card. Of course, you should still walk your conference floor whenever you get a chance to do so, and you should have those calling cards made but there are also social networking sites where you can sign up for free and advertise your products or services. A social networking site, once well used, can serve you well: it can allow you to expand your network by making use of a viral networking scheme. If word gets out on your website, product, or service, chances are, word will spread through the social network within minutes. Talk about fast track marketing!

Concentrate on marketing entirely. Develop your website and make sure that it has all the good qualities that a website should have: good design, excellent and constantly updated content, and easy navigation. You need something that people will keep on coming back to. Develop and do research on your products and services. You will want satisfied customers who will keep on buying from you, and who will recommend you to their friends. It makes no sense to concentrate on marketing and getting word out on a low-quality website, product, or service. You may end up turning away customers and overhauling viral marketing to work against you. That is, within minutes, you could lose prospective members of your market.

Plunge into the lions den. Look before you leap. Many people have made the mistake of venturing into an Internet business without knowing anything about it, and thinking that they can make a lot of money with no investment or knowledge. Do as much research as you can on marketing, product development, service development, and website design. What is your market? What are its interests? How can you reach out to it without annoying it? There are many ways that you can reach out to your market online, but if you engage in hard selling techniques, your work will become all the more obvious in the World Wide Web. If hard selling techniques make people groan in the brick-and-mortar world, they really turn people away, and make them run away screaming on the Internet.

These are only a few things that you should not do when starting off with your online business. You can make money online if you know your market well, and if you communicate with it constantly. You can keep on making money online if you have good products and services, and even perhaps a good website. Making money online will allow you to rest comfortably, and will give you a chance to get the things that you want. All you need to do is do it right and do it honestly.

Stress and fatigue is something that many people experience at some stage in their lives. This is common to those who are starting a new career, business, marriage and promotion because there is lot to learn while expecting high productivity.
In the short term, most people cope well by using strategies that help to maintain a life balance.
Sharing your concerns with someone you trust, get opinions from forums, team leaders and mentors.
Asking for help when you need it,accept support and opportunities when offered to you.
Acknowledge your own failure and emulate those who have succeeded in life or business.

However, if you continue to drain your mental and physical resources as a result of poor sales, you then expose yourself to possible Stress or Fatigue, resulting in reduced ability to cope with the demands of Life or Business.

It is what we feel when we think we have lost control of our emotional Balance or it is the inability to cope with events in our lives.
Stress can come from any situation or a thought that makes you feel frustrated,angry,nervous or even anxious. This is common when you are not getting the leads that your business needs to convert subscribers to become buyers.
There are times when you put your Business in Over-drive but no income is coming through. You feel your energy is completely drained.
The best thing is seek help or start all over again by mapping out new strategies tom resuscitate your Business. I had a similar situation when I started my Network Business. Computer was new to me and the network language was too difficult to comprehend. I almost gave up. Thankfully, i had to consult with my up-line and mentors who encouraged and gave me the strength to continue.

Here are some of the remedies to help you recover from stressful demands…
1Rest and sleep- useful if you have an auto responder service otherwise your business will go to sleep as well.
2.Eat a balanced diet
3.Have time for relaxation
4.Exercise for example, Golf, morning runs,mount biking and any sport that you enjoy.
5.Visit friends and relatives.

7.Go out for a holiday.

This is when you have been carrying out activities which drain your mental and physical reserves and feeling weak or tired. Basically the body is telling you that you need to rest or sleep. So do not ignore these signs and symptoms. They are devastating to your body leading to a condition called Occupational Overuse Syndrome.
You will start experiencing discomforts or pain in your muscles,tendons and other soft tissues, with or without physical signs.
