Make Money Online - Should You Take Weekends Off?

Look, it's no secret to experienced site owners that there comes a sharp drop in website traffic from late Friday evening to sometime Monday morning. Sure, sure... you're off spending time with your loved ones; or, perhaps, you are deep in prayer all weekend, meditating on gratitude and world peace. Maybe you take a limo to the Poconos, or fly your private jet to Macau for some high stakes poker... or maybe you take your million dollar yacht to Belize.


It's more likely that you stay in, walk around in your underwear scratching your nether regions and eating pints of Ben & Jerry ice cream. Maybe you mow the lawn, or take the kids to the mall, or lie out on the porch after a night of sucking down 30 margaritas. Whatever... just fill in the blank.

But what's clear, is that a HUGE majority of you don't surf the web, or visit your favorite informative websites or blogs and that leads me to believe that you're not serious about making money online. Notice I didn't say, "that leads me to believe you don't THINK you're serious about making money online" for, obviously, you believe you are.

Ok, if your religion orders you to take a weekend day off each week, fine, but both? And, just how long does it take to check on your favorite sites? How long does it take to quickly peruse sites/blogs that have been most helpful to you? What if you logged on Saturday morning for 30 minutes and read your favorite blogs? You'd have the rest of Saturday and Sunday for your mind to consider the new possibilities of any good advice given you?

Do you understand? Just because you are given a day off doesn't mean you have to take it. But it doesn't mean you have to bust your tail that whole day either. Seeing as no site exists in a vacuum, we know that most of the time we sit down to surf the web, a simple 30 minute excursion can easily turn into a 3-5 hour journey so, naturally, many of us would be hesitant to do any surfing on weekends.... even if it were just to take 30-45 minutes to skim through our favorite blogs.

Monkey See, Monkey Do, Monkey Do, Monkey See...


So, you set yourself into a pattern whereby you are missing some golden nuggets of information just because you grew up in a society that takes a weekend vacation. And if you continue to BE like the masses, you will continue to LIVE like the masses, always thinking it is "something else" that is keeping you from living your dreams.

Or, if you're just oh-so-brilliant and think you're really on top of the game, perhaps you'll excuse your weekends-off by explaining how you have things set up so neatly that you definitely make sure you'll receive all the excellent weekend nuggets on Monday.... AS IF there's absolutely no cost, or downside, to cramming 3 days worth of information into 1 day's worth of attention.

Look closely, even though I KNOW the vast majority of the work-at-home-wannabe masses don't show up on weekends, I still posted on both weekend days anyways. Why? For one, because the masses don't. For two, because there ARE some people who don't see weekends as a time to completely turn their brains off. And for three, because it keeps me in shape.

So, What About You?

What do you do with your weekends? How much of your weekend is still devoted to your ongoing financial/online marketing/blogging education and how much do you give to the devil?

I may not work all day on the weekend, but I do check into my site several times. Answering customer support questions in a timely way gets and keeps more business than anything else I have done.

I'm with dentist london - Take care of your customers all the time and that's important. Weekend or not.

P.S. The photo at the end of your post - Really disgusting.

If working on the web for yourself is all you do all week, then I don't think taking the weekend off is a problem. However, this is my goal, so I do work on the weekends.

At some point time needs to be taken for yourself as well though or a person can go mad.

And get this - they are refusing to cease and desist using the name Vermonster on their beer even after poor huge Billion dollar energy drink conglomerate Hansen Beverage Co asked them to stop because while Hansen doesn't make a Beer but does make Monster Energy Drinks they are concerned that they won't be able to make a Monster Beer in future because Vermonster will confuse consumers.

No Passion. You have an idea to start a business because you have spotted a gap in a niche market. The trouble is, even though you have had the idea and spotted the gap, you are just not interested in it. It has no appeal for you. This sort of approach is bound to fail. Even if someone can manage to stay interested for a month or two, after that, it will be a chore just to sit down and do something about it. Find something that excites you so much you can’t wait to leap out of bed every morning.

If you put up your case well with google, then there is a good chance that you might succeed in reinstating your Google Adsense Account. So, celebrate your success! It will take Google up to 48 hours to start displaying ads again, so be patient. You might lose a week of earnings, but that’s nothing in the long run.

Its really a nice idea to take weekends off. We can work on weekend if there is emergency.

Internet Marketing Coach said...

I never work weekends even though it's tempting at times. Taking time off means I'm much more efficient when I get back to work on Mondays. It's way too easy to have internet marketing take over your life.
