What would be the most important advice you could give a newbie in the industry? Mine would be to choose just one business and nurture it to the place that you want it to be. So many people that are new to internet marketing jump from one program to another without ever giving one the attention needed to grow.

Blessings,

I agree with your advice to stick with one business and let it grow. I did several in the past but now am going to focus on the new one as it seems more promising for me!

You gave great advice.

Thanks
Teresa

I think this is not such a great idea and I think further that the concentration on 'a business' or 'a product' or 'a great idea' is not really the way to think about business from a business owner point of view.

The better idea, IMHO, would be to concentrate on developing a superior system that runs itself, then duplicate it across several businesses. The last thing I want to do is to 'be owned by my job' as a business owner as much as I own the business.

Sure, nurture a new business in the beginning, growth phase, but as much as you grow the business, you also want to grow the management both as a system and as a human resource factor with the goal of handing it over to those who can manage much better than the typical owner can.

My experience shows that the very qualities that can make a great business owner successful are the very qualities that get in the way of the successful management of a company and which often stunts its growth.

Start it. Hand it over. Move on to start new things. That's what we're good at.

Being a specialist will not help today where you need to know more and more about more and more things.

You surely need to be specialisy at the time of starting a business but you surely need to diversify into other businesses to survive as copy cats starts to catch-up with you.

I'd agree that start, handover and move on to a new business.

My advice for a newbie would be to try as hard as he/she can to make their hobby a business. First find what fills you with passion and then try to make it a business!

My advice for a newbie would be similar to what you have already seen posted here but with an additional bit of advice.

Find a niche that is being under-served that you are passionate enough about to keep working on until it succeeds.

However, before you even get started, do your keyword research so that you can estimate roughly what the demand is for your niche business.

Focus on building traffic FIRST and foremost since this is the lifeblood of any business.

Too many newbies make the mistake of focusing on site design or providing informative web pages or the products they want to sell without ever asking, "How will people find my business on-line?"

That is the most important thing and the one that makes any on-line business worthwhile.

A useful free tool for keyword research is Good Keywords:

A better one is Niche Inspector which is a commercial program at $120 US but well worth the money in my opinion.

It allows you to do excellent keyword research PLUS it gives you the supply and demand stats to accurately guage how much competition there is for your target niche.

Why is that important? The more competitive or tougher a market you're in, the harder it will be for you as a newbie to capture an audience.

Your best bet is to work on areas that have little or no competition so that you can draw traffic to web pages that are optimized to rank high in natural search.

I use both of these programs. Good Keywords for fast lookups and if results look good then I run the keyword
through Niche Inspector for more detailed analysis.

There are other tools of course, but those are the ones I use.

My advise would be to watch out for everyone
who wants you to spend your money on their
system. I would tell them to check out every
thing before spending your money. There are a lot of people going broke chasing there dreams.
