questions about internet marketingAlthough some people have made a fortune from Internet Marketing, this business, like any other business, requires that you be suited to do it. If you have the right home environment, like studying technical subjects, and enjoy interacting with customers and marketing, then this business has the potential to make you financially independent.

Today’s economic climate is turbulent. Despite media reports about an economic recovery, job layoffs still continue. It is also still difficult to get a job for those who need to start over. However, according to Entrepreneur.com, now may be one of the best times to decide on creating an online business.

A home based business will immediately stop you worrying if you suspect that layoffs are imminent in the company you currently work for. And, if you are looking for work, you can immediately quit trying to get a job and settle down to begin making money.

Ultimately, an internet marketing business, once it takes off, will probably earn you much more income than your fixed income on a job, and it will also resolve a number of other problems associated with a regular job like getting bossed around, always having to be somewhere on time, commuting hassles, office politics, doing work that you don’t enjoy, and making less money than you think you deserve.

Although creating a home-based business appears to be a completely winning proposition, there are three questions you have to ask yourself to decide if you’re cut out for the entrepreneurial lifestyle.

Question 1: Do you have the time, space, and equipment to start working from home?

You will need to dedicate 20 or more hours a week to starting a home business, a place to work from where you will not be disturbed, and, of course, a telephone, a computer, and an Internet connection.

Question 2: Do you have the discipline to study technical information?

If you are an extroverted person, it may be difficult to spend a prolonged amount of time sitting in front of a computer. If you hate technology, then you will simply not be willing to put in the time to learn numerous technical skills. While it’s possible to outsource much of the work, you need to know what to ask for when hiring someone.

Question 3: Do you have a strong interest in interacting with customers and marketing?

While you may be proficient in learning new programs, you may not like to interact with customers to resolve customer service problems and you may not enjoy planning and implementing marketing campaigns.
