What Is Internet Farming?

I was busy doing some real farming this weekend, as opposed to internet farming. I was doing some comparisons in my mind, and came to the realization that all types of farming are pretty darn similar. Now before we go any further I had better clarify that there are some basic differences. You don’t need gumboots or a tractor for internet farming, and you can expect to make a lot more money for your efforts online than you will with regular farming. Internet farming isn’t dependent on rain or dodging hailstorms and a straw hat is completely optional.

How Is Internet Farming Just Like Real Farming?

farmingBoth kinds of farming require planting, or the growing of your business and a product. In the case of animal farming, just think of births as plantings and you can follow along. In internet farming just as in real farming, planting is the easy part. The initial contact that you make with a prospective client is just like planting. It doesn’t take a lot of energy or time, but the manner in which it is done has long term ramifications for the entire growing season. In real planting the seeds that you plant have to be watered and fertilized and cared for. You have to make sure that they don’t get too cold or get too much wind or too much sun.

Internet farming is similar in many ways if you are willing to stretch your imagination just a bit. Your new prospect has to be protected from well meaning but misinformed nattering nabobs of negativity who want to tear down everyone and anything. They also can’t be overwatered (too much information) or given too much fertilizer (hype and hyperbola), and they have to be protected from weeds (deal makers with bad intentions).

They have to be planted in good soil (positive responses to superior quality products), and cared for  on a regular basis (not abandoned to fend for themselves once they have opted in). Just as in real farming, nothing beats personal care and attention. Auto responders and email campaigns are great, but they are not the relationship builders you will create by spending one on one time with your prospect. internet farmingJust as in real farming, sustainable growth takes time, and rushing or trying to force growth just doesn’t work well. Temporary rapid growth is often weak and subject to injury and decay. Growth on a real farm and in internet farming is more sustainable when it is gradual and continuous.

And just like on a real farm, when things are going sideways and the current crop is in jeopardy, remember, there is always next year :)

Till Next Time

    It’s funny that you wrote this wonderful article. I’ve been doing a little farming myself – offline. My business is seeing positive results with sales and staff. The shop is getting busier and I have had to add people to deal with the new business. Plus I am learning a great deal about the art of business.

    I know some of the crop will die if you do not water or weed out the bad ones. Just like in real farming. It needs constant attention and personal touch.

    You are so right Dagmar. Even the most passive forms of passive income will eventually wither and die without care and attention.
