You will often see advertisements for home based business opportunities that refer to automated home businesses. They are often worded as though you can just pay for the business opportunity and then sit back, do nothing and collect the money. This is all done via their “Automated System”.
Don’t get me wrong; some degree of automation is needed in a business. For example, the effective use of an Autosponder is far better than sending emails out manually. But contrary to what these ‘automated business opportunities’ indicate in their advertisements, I don’t believe there is any such thing as a fully automated home based business.
At some point, the business owner has to take some action on marketing, budgeting, and so forth. No business that I know of can be completely automated. Before you fall for that ‘fully automated home based business’ remember that the only home based businesses that thrive are those where the business owner puts his or her full effort into actively managing, planning, and running the business.
