Are you a victim of corporate downsizing? Have you been fired? Have you been unsuccessful with your job search? On a brighter note, are you employed but looking for additional income? Or maybe even retired and just need something to do? Well all of these scenarios would warrant having your own business. Good idea right? I think so but a lot of people may not feel as I do or see things as I see them. Many people feel that in order to have your own business, you have to invest a lot of money. This is not necessarily true. A successful business will need more of your time than your money. Starting a business from the ground up or operating a franchise can be costly but if you can not afford it you can still have your own business for minimal costs by providing a service you are good at, joining a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company or starting a Home Internet Marketing Business.
Assuming the first two options are no-brainers, allow me to go into more detail about the Home Internet Marketing Business. For some reason, when people see or hear this term, they immediately think “Network Marketing”. It is, but it isn’t. Sure, networking is a fundamental part of the Home Internet Marketing Business but it involves other entities as well. The “Home…Business” part of the word implies working for yourself, at home, etc. “Internet Marketing”; the core part of the phrase is nothing more than marketing on the Internet. Okay, you’re probably saying “well what does that mean?” “How is that a business?”
Internet Marketing is about marketing something via the internet. That something could be anything. It could be your MLM products, your services, the opening of your restaurant, old clothes & shoes, etc. The list can go on and on. Eventually, if you are marketing the right way, it will lead to sales. And quite honestly, if you don’t have a product or are not a part of a MLM, you can offer your services to “Internet Market” someone else’s business/products or you can brand yourself and “Internet Market” the products you have created.
Notice, I mentioned earlier that there is a right way to market, implying that there is also a wrong way. If you didn’t know there are tons of ways to market on the internet but that’s not important because what you need to realize is that whatever strategy you use, you don’t want to abuse it. What I mean by “abuse” is gaining popularity by pitching your business but offering no value. This may not be a good analogy but to me that is just like someone approaching you at the mall about their business when you are there to shop. People like to pitch their business in the stores/malls because they figure that you are already in the mind frame to buy, so why not buy what they are selling. The same type of activity occurs on the Internet. People know that there are many shoppers and Internet Marketers on the internet just like themselves hoping to eventually make sales so everything they post is begging people to purchase their product. It’s annoying and people get turned off by it. This would be considered the wrong way to market. The right way is simply to offer valuable comments, gifts and advice all over the internet. You want to become established in the Internet Marketing industry as an expert and a leader; someone who others can trust and rely on. This approach will lead to sales and lasting relationships amongst your peers.
Now some of you are now saying “that sounds great and all but how much does it cost to get started?” Well, let me start of by saying that there are not too many businesses that you can start without investing any money. The main focus of any business is Return On Investment (ROI). You want to have some sort of idea going into any business what the chances are for getting a good ROI or just an ROI period. In other words, if you invested $500 into your business, you should want to make your $500 back (within reasonable amount of time) to at least break even or $500+ for profit and/or reinvestment. That’s why it is important that you research any business industry you are trying to be a part of. Reading is essential and talking to people in the industry is a plus.
Let’s get back to how much it would cost to start a Home Internet Marketing Business. As I stated there are tons of internet sites available that you can use to market yourself or your business and some of the well known ones are Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. These happen to be free sites that allow you to network and market. There are many more to choose from that can aid with the strategies you will choose. If you choose making videos as one of your strategies, YouTube is free however if you want to have your videos broadcast to other video sites all at the same time, there are internet sites that will allow you to do this for a FEE. If you choose to write articles as one of your strategies, you can write and submit your articles to one article site at a time or you can use an internet site that will allow you to submit your articles to many article sites at one time; for a FEE. Then in addition to this, Internet Marketers are highly encouraged to use specific types of tools in order to do well. Some of those tools consist of listbuilders, autoresponders, website domains, etc. These are considered essential. What Internet Marketer wouldn’t have these? For some of these tools, you can pay monthly or yearly. We’re talking like $20/month at the most for some of these tools. Tools such as article and video submitters may be more costly but depending on which service you choose, it is most likely unlimited usage for a year.
So unless you know what tools are required and what they are for, you will feel like you are spending too much money. But once again, you have to look at it like you are investing into YOUR business. Remember, I said earlier that you will invest more time than money. Imagine, spending minutes to hours writing articles, posting articles, making videos, posting videos, updating your blog, participating in forums, bookmarking, etc. I just named a few other strategies that are involved with Internet Marketing and that’s not even half of what you can do. Of course you do not have to use the same strategies everyday but even with rotation, it can be time consuming and honestly frustrating when you are just getting started. But you should not let this stop you from starting a Home Internet Marketing Business.
There are so many tools and resources available that would allow you to outsource for the things that you do not know how to do or want to do. You can pay to have someone build your website, write your articles, submit your videos, etc. When it comes to outsourcing, it is just like hiring a contractor; you take a few quotes and choose the best for the job based on their credentials and of course their fee may be a factor. Now would I recommend this? Well, to be quite honest, most successful Internet Marketers get to a point where they outsource but just starting off, I recommend picking a few strategies and use them manually (no automation, i.e. article submitters) and on your own (rather than outsourcing). Do this for a couple of months so that you can become familiar with certain websites and maybe if you set a solid work plan and get into a groove, you wouldn’t need either an automated service site or a contractor. This will help you to get your business up and running while saving some investment costs. If at some time after that you are able to afford the automation and/or contractors by all means, it will be well worth it.
The Casino Monte Carlo is built for and used by tourists only. In fact, citizens of Monaco are not allowed inside the gaming rooms of the facility. The royal family of Monaco can attend opera and ballet performances, but they do use an alternative entrance.
Other individuals must display a passport and pay the entrance fee before being allowed entrance to the building. Individuals wearing military uniforms are also prohibited from using the facilities of the casino. The casino is arguably the most famous of Monaco’s tourist draws.
The casino complex includes more than just the gambling facility. The Grand Théâtre de Monte Carlo is situated in the complex, as well as the opera and ballet house. The gardens behind the casino offer a glimpse of Bordighera in Italy.
The theater was not part of the original facility, but was added in 1910. The Ballets de Monte Carlo headquarters is also located in the complex. The entire facility is part of the Monte Carlo quarter.
The restaurant located at Casino Monte Carlo is famous in its own right. It is named Le Train Bleu after the first class railroad link that has done much to increase the fortunes of both Monte Carlo and the entire principality of Monaco. The train service is first class only and adds to the excitement and the mystique of Casino Monte Carlo. The Circuit de Monaco route of the Monaco Grand Prix borders the Casino.
Gambling in the principality was legalized by Prince Florestan I with the first casino established in a villa close to the harbor. Charles III initiated the plans for a new quarter in Monte Carlo prior to 1858. The plans drawn up for the new area in Monaco included the specifications for the new casino building.
The building was designed by architect Charles Garnier in a Baroque style. Garnier’s previous credits include the design of the Paris Opera. The building officially opened for business in 1863 with the fifty year concession rights granted to a private individual François Blanc.
However, beginning in 1898, the concession was taken over by the Société des Bains de Mer that has operated the facility since.
The Société des Bains de Mer is a private company, but the majority interest is held by the government of Monaco. The same company owns many of the major clubs and hotels in Monte Carlo that cater to the tourist trade.
The principal games that can be played at the casino include table games such as Roulette, Craps and Baccarat. The slot machines are available to those who prefer to try their luck there. Video poker captures the interest of many. Other players prefer the hands on type poker such as stud poker.
If you are very wealthy, you may be allowed into the special poker room only for those who can afford to play in the rarefied atmosphere of extreme wealth. Blackjack and Trente et Quarante round out the menu of games available to players. Annually, the European Poker Grand Final is played at the Casino Monte Carlo. This is arguably the most prestigious poker series in all of Europe, perhaps even globally.
?If you are just starting out on your first online business, it is understandable that you may not have enough capital to spend on paid techniques for driving website traffic to your site. Paid techniques like pay-per-click campaigns are surely effective at directing massive amounts of traffic stream to your website, but they do require you to shell out some cash for the trouble. At this very early point in your career as an online entrepreneur, you may not be able to afford using these paid techniques.
Do not despair, however; you can still drive an endless stream of website traffic to your site with the use of free techniques. They will not work as quickly as pay-per-click campaigns and other such paid techniques in bringing you the profits you expect from your business, but these free techniques will still get you the traffic that you want. The three most common free traffic stream techniques that you should totally take advantage of are listed below.
1. Submit articles to article directories. Getting articles published on article directories are excellent ways of attracting your target audience’s attention. Also, if the articles are good enough, they can get syndicated and reprinted elsewhere, giving your site more exposure and more backlinks. Your articles do not have to be long; 300 to 500 words are often enough. Just make sure that your articles are informative and useful. Limit the self-promotion to the resource box provided.
2. Submit press releases to free press release sites. Press releases announcing product launches, new developments and other events involving your business are great copy that will attract reader attention as well as generate backlinks to your site. When you write a press release, write it as if it is a news story rather than a typical article. You can talk about your business on your press release, but you should do your self-promotion at the end of the PR.
3. Take advantage of social networking. Getting “liked” on Facebook and tweeted on Twitter is a huge way of getting endless traffic stream to your website. Your website’s exposure can cascade like an avalanche on a really steep mountainside with social networking; this is the power of word-of-mouth advertising increased exponentially by the Internet. You must take advantage of social networking at all costs. You can start with opening Facebook and Twitter accounts, and then move on to other social networks, especially those in your niche.
You do not have to cough up cash that you do not have just to get some website traffic to your site. In fact, you can drive an endless traffic stream to your site for free with article marketing, submitting press releases and social networking. These are just three options available to you. You can start with these three and then explore others later on.
