5 Ways to Stay Marketable When You're Out of Work

Brattleboro, VT (PressExposure) October 02, 2009 -- Being out of work is tough, and there are millions of people in this situation. But if you're one of them and you have a computer, it may not be as bad as you think. The Internet is a source of income for many thousands of people, and with a little study and skill, you can be one of them and completely turn your life around.

1. Find a mentor

In the beginning, this will be quite difficult. You need a way to sort the wheat from the chaff, and there are many charlatans out there just waiting to grab your meager cash for a promise. Yet, they have no idea about what they're doing, and the promise will fade just as quickly as your savings account. Spend some time online evaluating the players. Find a mentor that you can trust and follow and then, stick to that person's system. Just do it. If it's been proven to work before, it will work again for you.

2. Find support

For every online guru there are hundreds of thousands of people trying to learn how to make money online. Find a forum of supportive people. The ideal system to follow will have this type of peer-driven support built in. Just be wary of negativity, and don't allow that to sway you from following the system you have chosen. Some people just don't want to do the work, and will complain rather than take action.

3. Focus on Lead Generation

The most important asset that any online business has is its list. Lead generation allows you to ethically gather names and email addresses from a list of people who are interested in what you decide to sell. This is the most important skill to learn, one that you should concentrate on right away and continue to pursue as your business grows.

4. Pick Any Niche

Not all niches are good ones. Yet, in the beginning, it's probably a good idea to pick anything that you're passionate about, any niche that can sustain your interest and keep you moving forward. You probably won't make a lot of money while you're learning the ropes, anyway. Once you're more sophisticated, you'll be able to pick a niche that not only has lots of interest, but a niche that sells.

5. Attend Live Conferences in Your Niche

Meeting people face to face makes a huge difference in how they will interact with you. Online business is pretty impersonal, so meeting other people in your niche will help you to bond with the like-minded. It will also help you to make joint ventures in the future.

Of all of the above ways in starting an online business, lead generation is the core imperative. If you don't start lead generation right off, it will definitely take you longer to achieve income, and when you're out of work, that's not something you can afford.
