Self Evaluation Test For Starting an Online Business!

By Karen Cunneen
In my research to find the best online opportunities, I am approached by many people hoping for me to buy into their product or service. Despite the product they might be selling, I believe most are good, honest men and women, working to the best of their ability. It saddens me to see how many great people fail in this business and walk away feeling disillusioned and used. I am here to tell you, it is not entirely your fault! The cards were, and are, stacked against you.

My guess is you are shown Video's with girls in sports cars, the spreadsheets with 6 figure payouts and told that the Company will train you? Am I right! Then, when you go to the webinars you are told very basic information and repetitive old fashion marketing hype. Don't worry! We are all guilty of hearing what we want too hear, in the heat of a fervent "sales pitch". I also have fallen into this trap. There is a way however, to avoid the heartache and subjectively evaluate yourself for success. I call it the "Success Recipe!"

Using a holistic approach I identify the qualities shared by the most successful people in the business. If you are wondering if an online business is for you, please under-go the core skills test and see if an online business is a "fit" for you!

DESIRE: You should know from the beginning that if you want to make a career into network marketing part-time, quit now! For most people it will take hundreds of hours to master the skills required. Do not be put off by this. When I started, I literally spent 6 months just educating myself before I earned a dollar. I read every opportunity, studied and researched every article until I was confident with the nuts and bolts of the business. I find the most successful people in the industry have started when their backs were against the wall and they found there is no room for failure (they had to do it)! You might have recently become unemployed, or as in my case forced to be at home due to family reasons. Your desire and determination to succeed must be paramount! Also keep in mind, you must be passionate about your product or service and believe in it whole heartedly. If you invest in a business based purely on the compensation plan, your chances for survival are bleak!

NO FREE LUNCH: As previously mentioned, if you are the sort of person who knows how to Email, use "Word", and little else, then you are in for a big learning curve. Hard work is needed for any new business and having an online business is no different. Do not be disheartened by this because with time and confidence in your skills, the hours will reduce. It is then that you can enjoy your new found freedom! Once you have had some success in what works and what doesn't, you should set yourself a work schedule of things that are "must do's" daily! The hardest thing to overcome in any home business is time wasting. Treat it like a regular job. Wake up at the same time, have a good breakfast and then attack your work schedule. Do not be distracted watching business presentations, shuffling paperwork, doing housework, or anything else, to avoid what needs to be done. Constant repetition of the "must do's" on a daily basis, is what will make you a success.

WORK TO YOUR STRENGTHS: You may be thinking by now that I am sounding pretty negative. I hope not! My purpose is to give you a starting point. To clear away the misconceptions and to look at yourself subjectively. We all have innate gifts that we bring to the workplace. Knowing and using them to your advantage is what will set you apart from your competition. I will list the qualities most needed. You may be great at writing Articles, doing research or picking the right business fit. Use what your good at as 70% of the work ethic and practice on the other 20%. The skills you need are listed below. Look at yourself subjectively and recognize those strengths.


Use what your good at as 70% of the work ethic and practice on the other 20%. The skills you need are listed below. Look at yourself subjectively and recognize those strengths.

Mark each attribute between 1-10. One being the least unlikely quality you posses. If you rate yourself 45 or more, than you certainly owe it to yourself to consider this life choice.

Analytic: The analytic person will want to weigh up every opportunity before making a decision. They are generally facts and figures people. They like research and will want to study and learn everything before moving forward.

People Person: People persons breathe life into any business. They are the ones that don't avoid phoning "would be" associates. They tell everyone they meet that they have a genuine opportunity. They are usually members of groups and clubs. They care for people and are likely to take the time to train them for success.

Education: We all are natural Sales People. We sell ourselves and our ideas to friends and family every time we open our mouths. Some of us may even be educated with a marketing background. If you are currently a student then you will certainly know the latest marketing technologies including computer software. If you are a little older than you might have the basic marketing skills but lack the computer no-how! These skills can be learned. You definitely don't have to be an internet prodigy to be successful.

The written Word: As an online business it is essential to be able to write copy. What I mean by this is that you are conversing with your audience initially by your written word. You have to capture people's minds and hearts to first convince them you are someone worth listening to. Whether you are talking on Facebook, writing an Article (like this one), or chatting in a discussion forum. You are what you write. For people to listen to and follow you, you must convey you are a person of "Value"!

Persistent and Consistent: It is very desirable to be a determined person. Many great people have left this business because they didn't give it one last push. They may be doing almost everything right, but the thing they are not doing has caused them to fail. As I mentioned earlier, you must have a routine work schedule that you do each day. If it is not getting you the results, then add something to it.

Mental Strength: I can guarantee you will have days of self doubt. We all get them and it is a part of life. What will win through is your determination to succeed. You must have the ability to brush yourself off and focus on what has to be done to achieve your goal. It may be setting yourself the task of phoning 20 people per day or trying a different approach. The greatest obstacle will come from an unlikely source. Your own family and friends! You could be made to feel useless or stupid for starting an online business. Traditionally we are all indoctrinated with a 9-5 mentality. Remind yourself and them of people like Bill Gates, and Thomas Edison. Where would they be if they listened to the doubters around them? Remember this is your journey, not theirs! Follow your dreams!

SERVE OTHERS: Napoleon Hill was quoted as saying; when you help others to get what they want, then you will get what you want! In other words don't forget your downline. It is very easy to get absorbed in your own business and forget those that have got you there. Your downline will need your help to become successful and they look to you as leader. Make time to answer people's questions and concerns. When they possess the skills they in turn can help their downline. Your team will then follow you into other opportunities. Think of your business like a house to cards. If you fail to help and inspire your team and they drop out, your house of cards is bound to fall.

IDEA PERSON: The internet is the most powerful marketing tool in the world. You pay considerable sums each month for that resource and if you are only using it to collect your emails, you are literally throwing thousands of dollars away each year. Can you really afford to do that? There are countless programs you can purchase to help market your business, but successful marketing can boil to a simple idea that someone hasn't thought of. As you experience what is available, you will gather your own idea's. Don't be afraid to go outside the box and be individual.


About the Author:

Although I have always been essentially a Sales Person, the positions I have held, dictated a mind honed to analysis, and lateral thinking. As State Sales Manager to an International Company for many years I was required to attend many "Boards", where it was my job, to find solutions with positive outcomes. In those years, I was lucky enough to have tendered for, and won, some of our States Major Building Projects including the State Museum, Treasury Casino and Lands Building Hotel. I now have several online businesses. I enjoy a relaxed lifestyle, free of the corporate world.

I hope I have been of some help to those considering this lifestyle. If I can help you further, please don't hesitate to contact me through my website on http://sites.google.com/site/mymoneytreebusiness/

Common Technical Questions

I am running an ad for my website, but I am not getting many hits to my web site from the ad. Is there anything I can do to improve it?

There are always things you can do to improve your ad. The first is to check and test the URL (website address) you placed in the Ad to ensure there are no errors or typos. Then test the ad your self by clicking on the View button and then click on the ad header to see if it is going to your web site.

If everything is technically sound another suggestion would be to look at the ad itself, is it written so that it is enticing to the viewer? The Ad Heading is like a newspaper headline, they will read the story underneath if the headline grabs there attention. If the story under the heading is good they will click on the ad. This can take a few edits and rewrites to get the results you want.

The third suggestion is to set up an ad campaign, by offering a variety of different ads. Remember two viewers can be looking at the same ad, one may react to it and one may not, the one that did not react may click on another one of your ads as that ad appeals to them and for that reason there has to be variety.

Creating a minimum three different ads for your website, each ad with their own unique heading and ad body, but going to the same URL will broaden your viewing audience.  

If you have any questions regarding email notifications or if we can help in anyway please contact us.
