After most people investigate and realize how beneficial a residual income can be, they immediately jump into the thousands of opportunities that are available to them on the internet.

That can be a big mistake. You can end up losing a lot of money depending upon the opportunity or opportunities you choose to build a residual income. You should consider a few things before embarking on your quest.

1. You should only concentrate on 1 opportunity at a time. Just promoting one opportunity can be a drain on your capital reserves. You must advertise to build any type of residual income.

Joining, maintaining, and promoting your opportunity will in most cases cost you hundreds of dollars.......and you should not expext to make that money back for at least 6 months or a year.

2. Reason number 1 is why most people fail in building a residual income. They either run out of money or patience, not realizing it takes time to build any type of residual income that is secure enough to retire on.

3. It is my opinoin that everyone should consider how they will market their opportunity. The so called heavy hitters in the industry use a "funded proposal" as a means to build a residual income. In other words they use "INdirect Marketing", to fuel their empires. They will sell a low cost product on let's say, You don't have to Lose Money Building a Residual Income". Their goal is to break even or make a little money. They then "Backend" their opportunity to these prospects. This way it costs them nothing to promote their business, and they can maintain a steady growth of their business withOUT Losing any Money!

The methods by which we use to contact each other, especially in internet marketing activities continue to undergo dramatic transformation. In the not to distant past (only a couple of years ago!) we kept in touch with customers – existing or potential new ones, using the telephone, fax machines, direct mail marketing and even in-person meetings. Today, people expect more frequent updates, new information, and the latest of everything. So much so that it is literally impossible to keep up with this dizzying pace and certainly not on a continuing or ongoing basis with any consistency. Thankfully, blogging has come to the rescue. Setting up a blog on your web site - and having an associated RSS feed - means you can keep in constant touch with your clients and potential customers. Plus you don't have to email them and they can get your latest news without having to visit your web site.

So how does this all work? A blog is really a fancy name for a web page that gets updated regularly. It's nothing special. There are several methods of writing 'blogs', but they are nothing more than computer programs which allow you to easily update a web page. Far and away the easiest way to start a blog is with a popular blog website. One example is called

However, for keeping in touch with your customers, RSS is the key. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. What this means is that your blog can be automatically delivered to people who want to read it - you don't have to send it to them and neither do they have to come and collect it. All they need is the address of your RSS Feed and their RSS Newsreader can do the job for them. There are several RSS readers available and new web browsers incorporate the ability to read RSS feeds and keep them updated.

Whenever you add new content to your blog, the RSS Feed automatically gets updated in everyone's Reader program or web browser. That means you are guaranteed to be able to keep in touch with clients and prospects. You don't have to do anything other than produce the content. Equally, you don't face the problems of email filters and anti-spam programs blocking your email. Furthermore, people tend to read RSS Feeds because they have subscribed to them whereas they tend to ignore non urgent emails.

After a small amount of basic research and reading, you will quickly see, there are numerous advantages to Blogs and RSS Feeds. One of the biggest reasons is that search engines love them. This is because blogs provide fresh and new content - precisely the thing that searchers are looking for. Hence the search engines are actively pushing blogs higher up the search engine ranking. What this means to internet marketers is that if you don't have a blog for your business, you are potentially reducing your chances of a high search engine ranking. You need a blog nowadays to get noticed by the search engines.

For all the reasons mentioned above (and many, many more), blogging is essential. Not only does it improve your web presence, it also means you can keep in touch with clients and prospects more easily. All the marketing research you can find will tell you that regular contact with your customers is a vital component in retaining existing clients, as well as gaining new business. Don’t put it off any longer; it is time to get your blog going---today!

Make money at home and you will keep more of what you earn because you will not have a commute (except to the coffee pot), you will get to write-off part of your living expenses as business expenses (pay less in taxes) and it will be easier to plan your work around your life instead of the other way around. Make money at home now.

There is no real good reason to go into an office any more, the technology is more than ready to allow for an effective process of working at home. Of course you may need to leave the house from time to time to complete business related tasks, or for the occasional meeting, but now that travel time and travel cost (gas, car insurance, food) becomes a write-off too. There are legitimate home based businesses that offer great business opportunity.

If you choose to start a business, as opposed to working for someone else, you will make more money at home. The typical employee gets paid 1/3, or less of what they make for the company they work for (if the company is profitable that is), as the company has to provide an office, benefits and make a profit too. Think about this, you could effectively work 1/3 as hard and make the same money, or work just as hard and make three times the money, the choice is yours to make.

Regardless, decide to make money at home and you will be ahead in the process of making money and your life will be much more enjoyable too.

Because YOU can triple your income.
