Following The Path To Online Business Success - Articles Surfing

You may be asking yourself, "Why have all my attempts to make money Online failed miserably?" You need to then step back and ask yourself, "What methods have I tried?" and "Did I follow through with them before moving on to the next big thing?" An example would be, if you made a content website about Dog Training. You had some decent content there, wrote a few articles, and submitted them to a number of Ezines and article directories; however, you did not get any affiliate sales, and barely anyone clicked on the ads on your site so you give up. A new ebook rolls around and tells how Average Joe made $25k in a month and you begin using his methods instead of the ones you have already set out to do. Who knows? Maybe all it took for you to feel like you have "succeeded" was a little bit more fresh content, or maybe a few more submitted articles ... But you'll never know because you strayed away from that path, because in plain view another path looked better before your business really had a chance to kick off.

Now, don't get me wrong. Its okay to experiment with new ideas to increase the effectiveness of your business, but try to tackle one thing at a time. Here's an analogy that will hopefully put my points into perspective:

Imagine you had to work for 364 days out of the year, and you had ONE day off to yourself. Would you want to make the out of it? Or would you want to spend the entire deciding on what to do? Say, on that one day off, you decided to go to a theme park. On your way, you see a billboard advertising a good movie that is now playing, so you decide to turn back and head to towards the theater. Well, on your way to the theater you realize you can't go through an entire movie because you're hungry so you make another turn and begin heading to your favorite restaurant. On your way to the restaurant, you remember you were had a big dinner waiting on you at home so you turn back and head home because by then everything is closed and the day is over.

Your Online income is like that ONE day. You've been waiting for it, and it almost seems to good to be true, so when the opportunity arises, you spend all of your effort deciding what you're going to do until you exhaust yourself to the point where all your time has got you nowhere. Because you kept chasing other offers instead of sticking to your original plan when the next thing seemed so much better. In the end, you wonder why your Online business has made no money.

My advice to you: Stick to one plan, before moving onto the next. If you decided to build a content site and earn revenue from Adsense and promoting affiliate products, stick to that and make sure that business is running steady before you decide to give up and start that eBay business Joe Schmoe got rich from.

In conclusion, the best thing you can do for yourself and your Online business is to write out a clear "vision" or set of goals. Do your best to stick to them before switching to a new plan. Make sure they are clearly defined, and don't add more than you can handle.
