Amazon is a prime example of an e-commerce website.
You browse products in the Amazon store, order the ones you want, pay by credit card and they get delivered. You have confidence in the process.
But Amazon makes no product and they sell through an army of affiliates. Some products they stock (FBA - Fulfilled by Amazon) and the rest is drop shipped by their suppliers. With drop shipping, you don't have to store any inventory. You advertise product, your customer orders and pays for it and you order it from the supplier, who ships it to your customer.
It all works smoothly for Amazon because they have software and systems in place to handle it all. Well, guess what? You can do the same. You can create an e-commerce website. This is how.
Here's the thing about online business.
It's two words.
Most information about creating an online business focuses on the Online part.
The worst of them totally ignore the concept of building a business.
They try to tempt you with impossible dreams.
No website, no mailing list, no nasty SEO, just buy this $27 product, click an the magic button and watch the money roll in.
It's all bullshit. To succeed with internet marketing, you have to build a business.
As in many things, the hardest part to starting your own inline business is exactly that - getting started.
There are 4 things you need to do:
If you're just starting out and you don't have an IT background, this can sound very difficult. Almost impossible.
Don't despair, it's not really.
You just need to follow a step-by-step blueprint, one step at a time.
For a set of guides to do exactly that, you should take a look at
Anyone, from student to retired baby boomer, can start a profitable internet marketing home business.
"All" you need is the knowledge of how to go about it and a blueprint of how to get there.
While it's not trivial, it's not rocket science either.
Though it can seem like it when you're starting from scratch.
That's why it seems so much easier to buy into one of those products that assure you that you don't need a website and you don't need a domain name, hosting, product or an audience. You just need the product they are flogging and "everything is done for you".
The problem is that they DO have a website, a domain name, hosting, a product and an audience (you).
That's what you need too.
Your idea is the subject matter or theme that your business is going to be all about. It is a decision that you should give careful consideration to. It’s the first important decision that you have to make in the long process of developing an online business.
Your entire website or blog should be based on something that is both appealing to yourself and to the visitors that you want to attract to your site and make sales to.
Unlike the bricks and mortar world, it costs very little to start an online business so the chances are that you will eventually own several.
This of course has the advantage that each one only needs to earn a small amount for it to all add up to a decent income. And if just one of them takes off, you can do very well indeed.
But it also means don't hesitate too much.
Avoid "paralyses by analysis" and jump right in, even if it's just for the learning experience.
There is no better model for making money while you sleep than internet marketing.
This is because
One of the best investments you can make is in your own education.
Do you want to make money from home?
Do you want to make $10,000 a month?
Then learn from someone who's already doing it.
Don't try to reinvent the wheel. Don't waste time failing over and over again. Just follow the blueprint laid down for you.
The internet has opened up a world of knowledge, information and practical how-to guides to anyone with a computer or smart phone and an internet connection. And the twin marvels of electronic payment and fulfilment has made it all incredibly affordable. All that's missing is your time and commitment to success.
The $10,000 Foolproof method is just one of twelve internet marketing books that I've made available for you from Amazon. Check them all out here:
I've been an enthusiastic user of Thrive Themes and Plugins for nearly three years and wouldn't be without them.
I believe that they are the best WordPress themes available and are the first, and frequently the only set of business themes and plugins I install on a new WordPress site.
The 10 WordPress business website themes that you have access to as soon as you install Thrive are the best conversion optimized WordPress themes available.
This article will take a quick look at each of them.
Here's the truth about creating a new website:
1. It's easier than it used to be. And that's because of WordPress.
2. That doesn't mean it's easy. The majority of people who start by themselves either give it up or produce something seriously awful looking.
3. With more and more attractive, attention-grabbing websites costing thousands of dollars each appearing on the internet every day, it's getting harder and harder to get noticed.
Which makes my offer to create a new website free for you at no cost for my time or expertise a truly amazing opportunity.
There are certain words that you use with your audience that are going to stick out in their mind. These are called trigger words.
Trigger words will get your audience to take action. They make people stop and decide that they’re going to read what you have to say. They spark an emotion, and they get people to think. They make your ads stand out from the other ads.
