I hear the exasperated statement all of the time from mothers whether married or single who are overwhelmed from the daily grind of being wife, mother, homemaker, employee, church secretary, and this is just a small list of activities that consume at least 95% of time available to today’s mom. Herein are 5 crucial things to pay attention to for reducing business failure for work at home moms.

I have heard many women say “i wish i could become one of the work at home moms.” This statement is easy enough said but not so easy started and done successfully. The fact is that most home based business startups fail even from the onset, and the reasons can be numerous.

How to Reduce Business Failure For Work At Home Moms:

Below I have outlined the top 5 reasons why work at home moms fail and why many are even more susceptible to failure.

1. Failing to Plan Ahead

Most internet marketers have heard about the successful mom who just decided to start an internet based home business because she realized that she was feeding her children fish sticks most weeknights. Not having enough time to cook a decent meal for her family was the gasoline that ignited the fire burning in her heart to venture out on her own.

But I can venture to guess that if the business was successful, then it wasn’t something that was just done on a whim. There must be some well calculated planning that should be a part of the foundation for work at home moms. You will be surprised that most people moms who went into home based business do not really have any plan; they just see the picture of a good business in their head, and jump into it headlong.

This is why it is extremely crucial to have a well thought out plan that can help you from beginning to end. Most people, especially moms have a hard time even planning a plan. What I mean is that they are able to see the end but they do not know the best way or steps to arrive there.

When making plans for home based business as a work at home mom, here are a few simple tips that should be considered. You should know what service or product you are going to offer to your target audience that would benefit and enhance their life. You need to then figure out how to expose yourself to this audience via the internet, hence the term “Internet Marketing.”

In addition to your family obligations, you must of necessity decide how you are going to set up your work schedule such as: what tasks you will personally handle, and which ones will be delegated to an employee, family member or virtual assistant. I would suggest you only handle tasks that are going to bring in more business.

2. Putting your Hands to Something

There is a saying in the Bible that goes. “Whatever A Man Finds To Do With His Hands, He Must Do It With All Of His Might.” This means that even when you are not yet seeing results, you must still keep working towards your target. It takes a normal business at least a year to turn a profit but that profit cannot be made if there is no work to put in. This leads to the next one.

3. Lack Of Consistency

This is a must when carrying out specific duties for your internet home business. If you are not seeing any results, then figure out a way to track your progress. For example: if you are promoting an eBook and at the same time using guerrilla advertising tactics and you are not seeing at least one sale a week then try something new or a different approach.

4. Lack Of Patience

I know that there are thousands of internet marketing businesses that promise thousands of dollars in a two week time if you just follow their system to exact specifications. Well, sorry to kill your dream but 99% of the time this is not going to happen.

I am not saying this cannot happen, it can happen very well; but I would not want you to lean on this mindset when starting a serious home based business.

A more realistic time frame would be at least 6 months to a year before any real results are accomplished, so don’t quit your day job just yet unless you have some cushion to fall back on that would cover this time frame. You will be surprised at the success that can be achieved with just a little more patience.

5. Learn and Practice Repeatedly

Be aware that in the world of internet marketing, there is more than one way to skin a cat. From selling e-books, to affiliate marketing, to blogging, to Google ads and this list is just the tip of the iceberg. It is important that you learn the various ways to marketing or promoting your products or services.

Some may turn out to be your gold mine, while others may not work for you at as you expected, however, you won’t know any of this until you’ve tried it, this is what business marketing is all about, calculated risks.
