Starting in Online Business can be daunting. I mean, what do you do first? How long will it take? How much will it cost? Will you Succeed?
Let me help you out here…
Step 1 – Forget all your questions (because they never end…)
Step 2 – TAKE ACTION!
Okay, so there is a bit more to it than that, but you get the idea. I will attempt to answer any questions you may have about Starting in Online Business in this post. But I can assure you the questions never end, they just mature as you learn more.
So, what is the first thing you need for an Online Business?
It really depends what kind of business you are setting up (or already have setup).
Are you going to be an eBayer or perhaps Amazon Seller?
Are you selling a Digital product? (eBook or training course)
Do you want to make money by referring Sales to other companies? (Affiliate marketing).
Do you have a bricks and mortar business and wondered how to drive more business using the internet?
Whatever your position, there is one thing you need when Starting in Online Business:
How do you build a website if you have no technical knowledge? You can either:
Pay somebody else to do it for you,
Learn for yourself.
Do yourself a solid and Learn for Yourself. I mean, if you pay somebody to do it for you, what if you need changes made? You have to pay usually. And it doesn’t come cheap. Plus if you learn for yourself, you can pat yourself on the back – because you just learned a very valuable skill indeed 🙂
Where is the best place to Learn?
You can scour Google and end up visiting hundreds of blogs about the subject – with no guarantee any of the information is valid or applicable to your goal.
What I did was just that. I scoured Google. I always do. We all do it. It’s what you just did to end up here, right? That’s why having an Online Business is such an attracting prospect. So many people are searching the Search Engines at any one time!
But like I said, there is no guarantee any of the information is true or not – you only have your own perceptions on this, and if you are new to OnlineBusiness, those perceptions are young, and invalid.
During my Googling,I came across something which changed my life – a community of Online Marketers, Affiliate Masters, Online Business experts and Veterans of the trade.
That thing was Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy Affiliate has been around for over 10 years. It was founded by 2 young Canadians called Carson and Kyle.
It actually started out as a membership site offering databases of high search keywords. Due to their success, they decided to turn it into something much, much more.
Wealthy Affiliate changed all my perceptions about Online Business. Kyle and Carson genuinely care about helping others succeed online. They have a structured Learning Course which guides you in baby steps and get’s you up and running with a website in no time. After that, they teach Success. Which means, they teach how to drive people to your site, and how to turn that Traffic into an income.
I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for almost 2 years now, and I have no intention of quitting.
