When starting up an online business or website to earn money and make a profit you should be prepared to wait up to 5 years or sometimes more to start getting a profit.

It's the same with offline business. It takes time to start seeing a profit once you have recouped all your startup expenses.

Making money online either from an online store or from a website running Adsense or other ads takes time. And you should be prepared to stick with your website and work long hours without any or little pay for at least 5 years.

But after the 5 years then the payoff can be big.

It is already profitable. I like making some lapel pins with the service from and then I sell them online on eBay and Etsy. I know it is a very small home business but anyway :)

Great story. I can advise you on what I have tried on personal experience and what has rapidly grown my small business. This is the use of the services of an outsourcing company Honestly, I was surprised that in a short time I could increase sales so rapidly. A professional team knows exactly how to approach clients. Try it, you won't regret it.
