My last blog post was about setting up an online business, expressing your passion, and making the decision to make money online. Just about every type of industry you can think of that might interest you is represented by some type of sales opportunity.
Here’s the problem as I see it. You need money. You have been downsized, laid off, fired, or unemployed. Maybe you just need extra money each month to pay the bills and keep a roof over your head… and oh, yeah, eat. Then someone approaches you with the idea that you ought to try an online business.

If you have an outgoing personality, or if you are willing to develop one ;), then this online marketing idea is for you!
I am the kind of person that I usually have to figure things out for myself. Depending on the project, that can take quite some time. I always do a great deal of research and tests to come to my own conclusions. You can’t make an informed decision, if you aren’t informed! So, you have to research, ask questions, think about things, and then I pray for guidance!
I started noticing a powerful marketing trend. It was about “Tribes.” Here’s a free e-book by Seth Godin. This e-book will give you a very clear idea about why today’s marketing style is revolving around Tribes. For those that prefer a visual aid:
