Anyone who tells you that you can log onto the internet for the first time and start making money in a very short time has not told you the truth. The fact is, as with any venture in life, you must pass through a learning curve to be able to succeed in the internet business world.

The question then is: how do you become the master of your learning curve?

Study the lives of the internet business “gurus”. You will discover that your own experience is not much different from theirs at the beginning. Nearly all the successful internet entrepreneurs passed through a learning curve just like you are doing.

For you to shorten your own learning curve, you will need to act a little differently than most of the “gurus” did. You need to become the master of your learning curve.

You can only shorten your curve by planning to succeed. How?

A lot of people start their internet business by getting a free website and including a few affiliate programs to their site. Almost immediately they start heading for the finish line without having a plan of action.

After a little while it becomes clear to them that the journey they have begun is going to be long and hard. They check their stats daily for a couple of weeks and discover that getting visitors to their free website is going to be more difficult than they thought.

Then they start to explore the world of advertising. They search for months to find free advertising sites to run their ads. Some may even spend a lot of their hard earned money to run paid advertisement with their new and untested ads.

Such people learn the facts of life the hard way. Eventually, they may understand how to advertise effectively but most of them will not make much money from their affiliate website.

When they reach this stage in their learning curve, a lot of people give up and abandon their dreams in complete frustration. But instead of giving up, such struggling internet entrepreneurs should have understood that they were simply following the wrong way.

Firstly, planning to succeed entails you studying about the tricks of online marketing. Research everything you can on this topic, including the opinions of people who have tried out the various techniques you read about. Learn from their successes and failures. Read everything you can get your hands on.

While you do your research, you need to make up your mind about the kind of program you want to begin. Would you like to start with a pre-built program that is designed to speed up your success or would you prefer to start a completely new program on your own?

If you choose to start with a pre-built internet business program then you need to choose one that is right for you. There are a number of such programs online and when you select one you like you simply plug-in and you can start making money online.

But if you prefer to start your own program, then you’ll have to put in the necessary work to research, plan and prepare the program, if you are to succeed.

When you make a choice of which option you prefer, the next thing is to think about how your program will make money for you.

Many experienced internet business entrepreneurs will tell you about dozens of big company domains that once existed but who had no real business plan to carry on their online business. A lot of these corporations failed during the 2000 dot bomb catastrophe.

You must not stubbornly stick to your plan. Study other people online who have tried similar internet business models as yours and see their results. Research your competitors thoroughly to discover how they succeed or fail. You can do this by checking the progressions of their websites with this tool: http://web.archive.org

As soon as you have figured out your money plan, the next thing is to develop a business plan and marketing plan. You can hire professional help if you have to. At this point you should decide which domain name would be most suitable for your business and register it together with a hosting account.

After your business and marketing plans have been revised a number of times and fine tuned, it is then time for you to buy your domain name and build your website. You can hire a site designer to develop a website for you. While your website is being developed you can also hire a copywriter to write a sales copy for your internet business.

When your website is ready, you must carry out several tests to ensure that the site is working well. This is crucial because it is much harder to correct problems on the site after it becomes operational.

After testing, you should input your sales copy and then launch your website. Since you already have a marketing plan, all you need at this point is to follow the program accordingly.

Now your internet business is ready to start pulling in cash for you. It is important to be willing to invest some money to ensure your business succeeds. Money can help speed up your success and save you a lot more work for similar results.
