Identifying profits areas and work on it.
The most important criteria in making money: “profit area”. The market where profits floods in, when you are not working in such a market, its waste of time. No matter, how much effort you invest and when there are no opportunities to earn, you will definitely loose.
At the same time, when you are working with a profitable market, you could easily survey even going along with tough competitors. So the market matters here. The theory of “demand and supply” helps you to analyze the market. Learn to find profitable market.
In fact, this should be the first step before starting your business. When you are already into a business without doing a market research, you could go back anytime to do this analysis. At least, you could identify the profitable areas inside that market.
Secondly, the amount of effort that you invest really matters. As i said before, on a non-profit market, no matter how much effort you invest you could not make money. So put all your effort on profitable markets and also, put the right effort.
What is that right effort ? It is simple like: going in the right steps towards profits. Find out all the opportunities to earn in that market and make clear steps to achieve it. Important: Follow it.
For example, think, how you could offer a free service and charge the customer for an advanced service ? or create a valuable resource related to your market/business and sell it to people. This way, you are already working on profitable market and when are putting the right efforts to grow profits.
