Your Online Business Needs Patience Not Haste!

Instant this! Instant that! Nobody wants delayed gratification. If it is not available now, you can forget it! Welcome to the info-jet age where an email can travel round the globe in less than 1 minute. Every new Online Entrepreneur desire to apply the same principle and make their Online Business Successful.

Alas, that is not the case. You can only have such instant success if your father owns CNN or you are as famous as Bill Gate (just kidding). If not, the earlier you sit down and learn the basics of starting and running a successful online business, the better for you. Running after Get Rich Quick Packages will get you nowhere. You will only end up falling victim to scammers. They promise to make you a millionaire overnight, but you need to part with the little you have first! They have a website well packaged to churn out thousands of dollars into your PayPal account while you do nothing (in your dreams!). They claim that the pages were professionally optimized for SEO, SERP, CPC ….blah, blah, blah. You know the rest of the story. It is all bunch of lies to get your money. Do not fall for it.

I have been working round the clock mopping up any knowledge that can help me achieve my goal for this blog. Was I in a haste to get the desired goal accomplish? Yes, I was? But now I know better. Yesterday, I came across a masterpiece article written by Yaro Starak for newbies like myself. It was quite instructive. It was an eye-opener. The article laid emphasis on the importance of patience in growing an online business. I encourage you to visit his site and download a copy of his masterpiece article “How to start an internet business… and make your first $1,000 online” Even though it is free (save for the time it takes to subscribe and download) you will get better result than that being provided by the fake Instant Cash-Cow Packages making rounds online.

After digesting the information provided in the article, I had to slow down and re-formulate my strategies. I do not want to have a burn-out as a result of being hasty. In less than two months, this blog has moved from a zero level to a level that some friends admire and commended, but I was not satisfied. I actually felt that the growth rate was too slow. I wanted 1,000 subscribers, 500daily visitors, 4PR from Google etc. I wanted it now, I mean yesterday! That meant overworking and putting my health at risk! Is the risk necessary for entrepreneurship success? You bet it is not. I was just being foolish and displaying the ignorance that is common with newbie Online Entreprenuers.

Stop the haste! Stop attempting to achieve unfeasible targets. If you do not know, get this straight, Internet Business is not as fast paced as you think (I wish I could shout this on the roof top to every Nigerian Entrepreneur online). It is the technology available that is fast paced. You can send 1,000 emails under 1minute and all the contacts will receive their copies almost immediately. But it takes effort and time to get those contact names on your subscription list. Patience is a vital ingredient for the Success of your online Business. So learn to allow time do justice to your persistent effort. If you exercise patience, the result will come. See you at the top! Cheers.

    SURULERE: Patience has its virtues. In 9ja we are generally in a hurry, like soldiers or “Molue” drivers. We have to be patient, very patient. Google has lots of cash now. reason is building gradually with their unique idea/algorithm. This blog will reach the top, believe me. I like it here. Your advice is very good and I support it strongly.
    I have studied the internet for 7 years. From good old dial-up days with Nitel in 1999/2000 in Ibadan to this day with high-speed in Yankee. Believe o, I know so much now and I can comfortably host a site, write HTML and some Javascript, CSS, install WP/edit templates/SEO my blog for high rankings and even render consultancy services. I did not have any formal education related to the internet, but it is patience. I hope people will do that more. Thanks for sharing this post with us, your loyal readers.

    Naijaecash, I could not agreed less with your observation on instant money making mentality, particularly on the internet. I can justify this from personal experience. I have been online since the year 2003 trying to establish online business without a single kobo, cent or penny to show for it,due to false online business plan sold to me and getting rich quick mentality i had about making money online then,but now i know better.

    This has affected all area of my life,particularly my offline business which has closed down,no thanks to my act of using the fund from offline to finance online biz with the aim of hitting it over night online.Now i am back in labor market searching endlessly for means of sustainment.

    However, i will never trade this experience for anything less but for success story in internet marketing,by the special grace of God.

    And let say here that i have been following your progress on naijaecash,and i observe that this best way of building online business.Your blogs and some other successful bloggers are my source of motivation now.

    Now, I am making new plan on paper to come back, particularly,i am gainfully employ. Thanks
