A Plan For Your Internet Marketing Success Part 3 – Develop Productive Work Habits

Most of us who have been employees have been told what to do and have not acquired the necessary discipline and skills to keep our businesses going long enough to succeed. In the third installment of this series I will outline some of the success factors needed to build a very lucrative internet business.1. Treat your business like a business.
If your intent is to build a business then you must treat your enterprise like a business. If your intent is to simply further a hobby then you need not follow these suggestions.
Consider investigating and creating a legal entity for your business. You can get substantial tax benefits from setting up a corporation or partnership that fits your circumstances.
Select your team – lawyer, bookkeeper, accountant, financial adviser, banker, copywriter, website designer and/or other backup you need. Follow their advice!
Make a budget and stay within its guidelines. It is all too easy to get caught up in the hype and purchase programs, seminars, mentoring programs that may be excellent, but if they don’t fit into the immediate structure of your business pass them by. The same resources will be there when you need them. They may be more expensive later, but you will save money in the long run because you will have made a calculated decision, the material will be current for you, and you will not have a bunch of unused notebooks, tapes, etc. collecting dust on your bookshelves.
Keep all receipts, invoices, bank deposits, records of phone calls with clients and comments about the call, income tax returns and any other papers suggested by your team. 2. Schedule your work.
Since you are at home it is all too easy to let the daily activities surrounding you get in the way of your productivity. You should plan to spend an uninterrupted 1-2 hours or more a day on your business plan. Put a do not disturb sign on your closed door.
If you intend to make money then focus only on money making tasks. i.e. writing content for your website or blog. Don’t spend time checking your email account, and answering phone calls that are not business related. Set aside time for these activities outside of your scheduled work time.
Get into a routine of working at a set time each and every day. 3. Create a productive work place.
Create a quiet place and eliminate all distractions — turn off the TV, phone, music sources, barking dogs, and screaming kids (right!).
Organize your resource materials and make them readily available.
Keep a ready cache of needed office supplies.
Have or purchase a filing cabinet or system.
Keep the piles under control – throw out the trash, keep up with filing, put resource materials away when not in use, return office supplies to their storage area.
Purchase sufficient lighting for each work surface you will be using.
Make sure the air quality and temperature are conducive to working comfortably. 4. Stay Focused.
“Plan your work and work your plan.” Know where you are going and why. Write out your business plan. This can be as simply or as complicated as you wish, but have a written plan.
At least weekly go over your plan to see if you are still on track — what might need to be tweaked, added or deleted and edit it accordingly.
Make a master-to-do list from your goals and plan. After evaluating your plan alter your master-to-do list as needed.
Know how you will spend your time the next day before you leave your “office” for the day.
Choose 3 tasks to work on each day that further the goals you have set for yourself. Don’t get caught up in the minutia of the moment. Stay tuned for the next article, Choose Big Ticket Products, on your way to building a business for instant income.
