We all have our own particular behaviors and habits and these are what lead us to do things in a certain way. Some of these habits will help to move us closer to our online income goals while others will hold us back or work against us actually ever achieving what we set out to do, not only in business but also in health and relationships.                                                                                                   

Time Management

Most of these behaviors have become so ingrained in us so that most of the time we are not even aware of the fact that we are doing them, but we are rational beings and as such, are able to make a conscious effort to learn how to change the habits that are no longer serving us and are preventing us from reaching our goals into ones that will help us to reach our desired results and improve our lives.

Here are some tips on ways that you can break the bad habits and replace them with ones that will improve your opportunities and your life generally.

1. To begin with you need to identify which habits are detrimental to your online income success and are blocking your path, not only in business but in your life in general.

2. Once you can identify them the best method of breaking these habits is to catch them whenever you find yourself falling into one of these bad patterns. As soon as you become aware of it attach an enormous amount of pain to the situation. You can do this by thinking about all the horrible difficulties that are being caused for you by allowing this particular habit to persist.

3. Start replacing this bad habit with one that will serve you better and think of all the good things that will start happening for you once you learn to follow the better habit.

Remember that you cannot just get rid of a habit that you have had for many years, you will need to replace it with a new habit. Unless you fill the void that is left by getting rid of some that is no good for you, with something that can benefit you that old habit will just come back and fill the empty void again.

4. You cannot just do this once and expect the bad habit to disappear, you will need to be vigilant and practice it on a daily basis for a minimum of 21 days before the old habit dies and gets replaced by the new one.

To summarize; you must identify the bad habit. For example you tend to procrastinate on tasks that are important to the success of your online income opportunities and then you have to rush like crazy under enormous pressure to complete the task. If you are one of those people who perform better under pressure and you don’t mind working that way then great, but if you hate this kind of situation then you would consider this a bad habit.
Once you have identified this as a bad habit then every time it happens think about the amount of stress you put yourself under and how miserable you feel and you are tired out from lack of sleep, make it as painful as you possibly can.

Once you have successfully made it as painful as possible then you must substitute this pain with pleasure by visualizing yourself getting down to doing the task at hand immediately, getting it finished in time all in an orderly manner and then having time to spare. Think about the satisfaction and joy this will give you and see the money rolling in and your online income growing exponentially. Do this every day consistently for a minimum of 21 days and I promise you that your life will become happier and more relaxed and your online business will thrive.

5 Ways to Make Money with Online Income Opportunities

Here is an article by my friend and guest writer Alan Mater.                       

 

If you are one of those who are finding it difficult to balance their home as well as work life, then perhaps you need to consider online income opportunities. And this is not difficult at all today. After all, the Internet has opened up a vast plethora of options for us.

I’m sure there is something you can get into that you would enjoy doing while making money at the same time. While not every income opportunity will be right for you, consider these 5 ways that you can make money online from home.

1. Freelance Writing

One of the most common online income opportunities today includes being a freelance writer. The creativity in you gets unleashed this way. You can write when you want and on any subject matter that you want. You can even have your own blog if you choose. Once your writing becomes compelling and worth sharing to the masses, you can use this skill to make a living on the internet. Begin with banner advertising, selling advertising space, and even add affiliate marketing into the mix where you promote other people’s products or services that are related to your own.

If a blog isn’t your style, other online income opportunities includes becoming a ghostwriter. This means that you will be writing for others and meeting specific criteria they specify. Even if you are not getting the credit for the writing, you can still add your creativeness to the writings and earn money at the same time.

2. Online Trading

If writing isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there are so many other options available. You could opt for online trading, if you like to follow stocks or think the odds add up in your favor. Even so, many average people are trying their hand at online trading. And who can blame them, when there are many tools and software available today to assist them.

I’ll warn you now that online trading can be tricky, and great care should be taken when buying and selling stocks. I recommend doing your research or hiring a brokerage firm to assist and guide you in the buying and selling process.

3. E-Commerce

Other online income opportunities include setting up your own e-commerce website. You could even sell second-hand goods if you prefer. You have the option to market just one kind of item or a complete range of items. The choice is completely up to you, since it is your site, after all. You can sell pens, cars, houses, electronic gadgets, houses, and even fashion accessories or apparel.

Some things to take note of when setting up your e-commerce site is that you properly secure the site using the latest technology so that customers will feel safe buying from you. This is a must. Also make sure that you comply with all the legal requirements of the State in which you live.

Here’s a tip. If at all possible, try to buy directly from the manufacture, cutting out the middleman. This will keep your prices low and competitive but still allow room to make a profit. A source to look into is Alibaba.com if you’re serious about starting your own e-commerce website.

4. Virtual Assistant

Another online income opportunity includes being a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant is quite similar to being a personal assistant, but the difference is that you would be working out of your home. By using just your computer and internet connection, you can assist small business owners and entrepreneurs in everyday tasks that they don’t have the time to do. It’s quite possible that you may never actually come face-to-face with your boss.

The type of work you do will depend on what all is required by the person who hired you. It could be responding to emails, data entry, setting up appointments, scheduling, filing or making reports. In the offline world, this position would probably be called an office assistant. Since you’re working at home, your whole house is your office, or whichever part of the house you prefer to conduct business.

The best part about being a virtual assistant is that you are your own boss. You can work when you want, play when you want, and take your family on vacation whenever you want!

5. Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is always a popular online income opportunity, due to the fact that it costs very little to get started. What a lot of people do, and what I recommend you do as well, is to start a blog. If you have a hobby or passions that you’re knowledgeable about, this can be a great starting point for your new blog.

WordPress is a great platform and content management system that most bloggers, including myself, use to manage their blogs. Go to WordPress.org and follow the simple steps to install it to your server. Speaking of servers, you’ll need a domain name and web hosting to run your new blog. Both cost as little as $100 a year, so as you can see there’s very little start-up cost involved.

Once your blog is underway, start marketing it and learning about SEO and social media to get people to your blog. Once traffic picks up, use affiliate marketing to monetize on that traffic. Google Adsense, products on Clickbank and PayDotCom are just a few ways you can find relevant products and ads to promote. Affiliate marketing training will definitely help advance your blog and have it start generating income more quickly.

The amount of money you can make with online income opportunities will depend entirely on your capability and the amount of time that you are willing and capable to put in to work. Choose the opportunity that best suits your taste and that is of interest to you and that you will enjoy doing. If you have passion for what you do, the money will come.

When first starting out with an online business website it is more than likely that you will have a limited budget, and spending money on advertising can seem like an impossible dream. You know that you need to set up a campaign to promote your online income opportunities or services if you want to succeed but how are you going to do this without the money to invest?     

Earn Extra Income

Don’t despair there is a way to generate targeted traffic for free:

Because of the global economy there are many people turning to the internet as a way to earn extra income. Apart from having to take salary cuts there are also many retrenchments and an online income seems like an opportunity to supplement whatever they are earning from their regular jobs. This has made the competition online really tough, so it is simple good sense to maximize the methods you are using to promote your online income opportunities business.

Traffic is essential for any online business. Without constant visitors to your website there is little chance of you making any sales, you cannot build a website and just wait; it takes time and effort to begin generating the targeted traffic that your business success depends upon.

Here are some tips that will help you enjoy a significant amount of targeted traffic without having to break the bank.

1.  Write and submit articles to free directories. Provided you can make the time this is a method that will cost you nothing. By starting to write articles right away and submitting as soon as they are completed, you can expect to get traffic within a few days, after your articles have been approved by the directory administrators’. Just make sure that the articles you write add value and give good information. Remember to submit to as many directories as you possibly can if you want your article to bring visitors to your site.

2.  Participate on social networking sites and let everyone know what you are offering, so long as the content is good, you will find followers.

3.  Create a video and post it on to free video sharing sites. This may take a few hours, but if it is especially relevant you will be assured of generating targeted traffic almost immediately. When posting your video don’t forget to add a link back to your website both at the beginning and the end of the video.

These are just a few tips to get you started, but with a little imagination you will probably be able to find others. Just keep in mind that the traffic will not happen overnight, it takes time and dedicated effort, but keep at it and the targeted traffic will come and your online business will start to profit.
