As recent as ten years ago starting a business, any business, cost a lot of money. Cash outlay was thousands of dollars and there was no way to get around that. The barrier to entry into the world of small business was set high enough that not everyone could jump in. Times have changed. Now, with just a couple hundred dollars you can start your own business online. I understand that it’s hard to get an email contact with A&R scouts. A simple Google search can reveal several of them. Don’t hesitate to email the label and ask for an A&R contact and/or permission to send your press kit. Once you establish contact with someone at the label (or magazine, newspaper, etc.), the person will most likely look for your press kit. Also, most major labels don’t even accept unsolicited press kits. This was the mindset I took into my affiliate Marketing business. If something didn’t work, I would consult with my mentor. He would recommend a certain thing to do and I was back working long hours on the computer. I don’t recommend that you do what I did. I cut off my friendships. When you work those kind of long hours all you can fit in is time to eat and sleep. Otherwise you will find your partner will want a divorce because you are spending no time with the family. My particular 800 number service has a feature that alerts me to the prospect’s incoming call, if I choose to. I am therefore “immediately” available to them, and they are not lost to the next real estate agent. The better the SEO on a website, the better it will rank for certain terms, which will increase organic (search engine traffic). If SEO is not factored in to a website, the site will receive little or no traffic. The assumption I’m making here is that you want to succeed. And with that, I’m assuming that you want your blog or web pages to get adequate traffic to meet your goals. You want a sufficient number of people to convert into subscribers and paying customers. You want to travel the world with a margarita in your hand, hardly working a day in your life and living like a jet-setting lifestyle without a care in the world. With me so far? So how do you do it? To quit your job: This is an easy home based business that you grow as you have time. Nobody needs the pressure of making an enterprise work because you had to quit your job to try it.
