Yes, time for a little rant.
It amazes me every day, how many people want to build a business online, they want to make sacks full of money, yet, they shoot themselves in the foot at almost every turn. Not every one, but surprisingly quite a few.
They cheap out.
From using free hosting to trying to build their business on free web hosting services, facebook, wordpress free blog hosting and more.
Who’s in control of all your hard work when it’s on a free service? Not you, that’s for sure.
You spend hour on hour building your business and gee, wordpress deletes your blog. Surprise! Facebook deletes your fanpage. Surprise!
Don’t get me wrong, places like Facebook has their uses when it comes to marketing, BUT… they are NOT the place to completely build your business.
I’ll say it again. If you want to build an online business that stand the best chance of making you money, and for the long term, you have to invest in your business!
At the very least you proper paid hosting and your own domain names. No if, and’s or but’s about it.
Listen, I understand being on a budget and not having much to put into your business. I’ve been there, I’ve struggled for many years working jobs that paid less than crap. I know all too well.
Thing is, it costs so little to get start right online. Hosting is like $10 a month and domains cost about $15 a year. Frankly, if you can’t find that kind of money, your not serious enough. Any one that is totally committed to creating their own online empire will find the cash. They’s take a second job if they need to, go through the couch cushions, skip a fast food trip, ect, ect, ect, ect.
Did I say “ect”?
If your not willing to do what it takes, sorry to say Sparky, but you’ll be wasting your time. Notice I said “willing”, because I know every one is more than “able” if they want it bad enough.
I did it, so can you. So, no more excuses, invest in yourself and your business and you WILL reap the rewards.
Okay, rant mode off.
