The Sweet Sound of Rain

No matter what business you are in, or what your product niche is, getting to a level of making a profit takes some time and energy.  It’s just a fact of life.  If someone promises you that you will be a millionaire overnight by running a business, it’s sorry to say that the promise may be broken.  If you want to make long-term profits, you have to work for it.  You have to have a business plan and you have to develop a marketing strategy in order to generate sales.  If you aren’t taking those steps, your business may not even get off the ground.

But if you have put in the effort you will start to see some profits trickle in, much like a sprinkle before a rain.  If you are looking at your financial horizon, you should be able to see those clouds floating closer that let you hear the sweet sound of rain.  Profits, that is.  When you continue in your marketing efforts, changing what you need to, and finding new ways to increase your sales, you can develop your own “rain” of sales.  But think that you can simply sit back and little to patter of profits raining down on you.

You still have to get your feet wet in that downpour in order to make the most of it.  That rain will help your financial garden grow but only if you cultivate it right, so you still have to put in the work.  Get the “weeds” out of your websites, and plant some things that are actually useful to you as well as your customers.  Planting an occasional “flower” on your sites is not a bad idea, either.  Make sure that your sites are entertaining as well as informative, with easy navigation and an easy way to make purchases.  Then let it rain.

Tell us your stories of the rain here, and share in the fun of having your own internet business.  We would all love to share your experiences.
