The online business industry can be a great big maze of endless information that can drive a person mad if they don’t know what to do. Many people want to know how to make money online, but almost everyone, (especially in the very early stages of their endeavors) move from one thing to another without keeping track of anything. With that said there is one thing that you absolutely must do to keep your business alive.First let me say this. When I first began my online business, I didn’t know what to do. In fact half the stuff I did in that time frame I couldn’t even remember if my life depended on it. I jumped from place to place, trying this and trying that, and while that’s not a bad thing I had absolutely no structure at all. So what’s the most important thing on how to make money online? Track everything you do. It sounds so simple but it’s the one thing you must do, or your business will die.Look, without a record or log of what you’re doing, where leads are coming from, the money you’re bringing in and spending, and other things you do to grow your business, how do you know what to do more of or cut out? This is especially important when your internet business begins to really grow. It’s like putting on a blindfold and trying to figure out when to stop before you walk off a cliff. You may know how to make money in the online home based business world, but if you don’t track what you’re doing you’re business is doomed to fail, point – blank.Do yourself a favor and break out those spreadsheets, and journals and start keeping track of your every move now and you won’t be sorry later. It will also be beneficial to those on your team who need your expertise on how to make money the way you did it.
