4-Surprising Ways to Get Your First Few Sales Online
I’m going to give you some advice I wish someone had given me when starting out, about making your first few sales online.
The first and very most important thing for any startup business is to focus ALL your energy on getting your first few sales, because those first sales will start bringing in cash. You need that cash flow as soon as possible.
Here’s why you should go after the money first: Most people focus on all the wrong things when they’re getting started. When they start running out of money, they panic and a few months later, they usually just quit the whole business.
For example, a friend of mine started an online business. He started writing on his blog every day, but one day I noticed it had been a few months since I had seen his blog, so I asked him what happened.
Without fully realizing it, he was spending all his time creating a fancy logo. He was getting all the latest plug-ins. He was busy, so it felt like he was getting something done.
A week went by, then a month went by, and after three months he had not made a single dollar. After a while of continuing to have nothing coming in, while you’re spending all this time doing all of these things, that really starts to almost get depressing.
You know, a lot of people they go through this same exact situation. After half a year they’ve spent all this time doing all of this stuff they thought would bring them money, but no cash is actually showed up in their bank account.
