What is the Most Important Part of Starting an Online Home Business?

I get asked all the time what the most important part of starting an online home business is and it's very hard to answer that question because there are quite a few important parts to starting a home business. Picking just one is a disservice to the people who truly want to succeed with their own online business. However, if I absolutely have to answer that question with just one thing, I'd have to say that the most important part of starting an online home business is coming up with a good plan. In this article, I will explain to you why that is my answer...

Most people who struggle to build a successful online home business do so because they don't have any direction to where they want to go and how to get there. They just dive in without ever really thinking it through. Maybe they will decide they want to be an affiliate marketer so they go to Clickbank or another affiliate marketplace, pick out a product to promote, maybe put up a blog with some content or write a few articles and hope that they make some sales. That's not an online business... it's just a blind shot at making some money. Basically they're just rolling the dice in the hopes of finding something that works. Definitely not the best way to go about it!

Creating a business plan is really quite simple. All you have to do is sit down and decide what you want your business to be and how to go about building it. The easiest way to do this is to make a list of your interests and skills. By going through these, you are bound to find something with a demand that you can build your online home business around. For example, if you can play the drums, you may find through your research that there are a number of people online who are interested in learning how to play the drums. Maybe you have a great system for teaching people how to play the drums and could easily create a course to do just that. That is what you call a business plan, or at least a good start to one.

Obviously, a complete home business plan is much more complex than that but you get the idea. Yes, it does take some work to make a real business plan. It's not the easiest thing you will ever do but it's not all that difficult either. But without one you stand a very good chance of running circles in the dark not getting anywhere at all with your online home business.

So, if I had to pick the single most important part of starting an online home business, I'd put creating a business plan at the top of the list. By making one, you give yourself some direction and a solid foundation to build on. That alone can be the difference between making a little extra money online and earning a six figure yearly online income.

Remember the old saying, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail"
