Copyright 2009 © Cynthia Minnaar
With many people starting an internet based business while working a 9-5 job, they find working at it part-time is a real challenge. To effectively manage your time in order to achieve your goals here are a few tips for you.
Initially, understanding the concept of leveraging your time is important. Whilst you might sleep the internet never does.
Being a part-time internet based business owner the key to optimizing your time is to generate different types of targeted traffic that have long lasting effects. You can achieve this by focusing on the internet marketing methods that build backlinks to your website, such as article marketing, blogging, online directory submissions, off-site search engine optimization, social networking, forum posting and others.
The second tip is to stay focused on what you want to achieve and do not allow your computer or the internet to distract you from your daily tasks. If you just aimlessly surf the net or chat to friends online time can pass by very quickly. It wont be long before so much time will have elapsed and you will have achieved nothing.
The third tip is to realize that due to the many distractions of family and visitors it takes self-discipline to work at home. To avoid the distractions it is important that you set up a dedicated area where you can work on your internet based business in peace and let those around you know that when you are in your office you do not want to be disturbed as you are actually working.
The fourth tip concerns how extremely motivating it can be when you see your hard work paying off and your internet business start to grow. By creating daily, weekly and monthly to-do lists you can accelerate this to ensure you complete the tasks on schedule. You will experience a great feeling of accomplishment ticking off those tasks on the to-do lists on a regular basis.
The last tip is to analyze your internet business on a monthly basis. Take a moment to congratulate yourself on what you have achieved so far. It is then worth spending time to look into the areas where you have not succeeded. To ensure that next month the failures are not repeated work at setting new strategies. If necessary, this is the time to adjust your existing goals and to set new ones to help you achieve more.
These few tips on how to run an internet based business part-time will help you too if your goal is to create a full-time internet business from home.
