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.
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:
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.
You can earn an ethical and satisfying income from affiliate marketing. But is it for beginners? In this article, I am going to show you how to get started.
It's a bit like learning to walk.
Really, really difficult at first. You have some stumbles and falls. But you pick yourself up, learn from your mistakes and try again.
But then suddenly everything falls into place and you never look back.
But it sure helps to have someone there, guiding and encouraging you every step of the way. In the case of walking, it's someone to show you how to do it, to hold your hand as you take your first stumbling steps and to help you back on to your feet when you stumble and fall. And to help you keep that goal firmly in mind.
Anyone who has ever raised a child knows how important each of those factors is.
It's the same with affiliate marketing for beginners.
Your success as an affiliate marketer depends on many factors.
Having a fast, attractive website is one. Posting great content is another. You need to understand keyword research so that your great content is seen by the people who will benefit from it when they enter a search term into Google, Bing or Yahoo. And you need backlinks from other sites operating in the same or similar niches.
But all of that is aimed at just two things. One, getting traffic to your website and two, making it very attractive for your visitors to click on your links.
But what happens when a visitor clicks on one of your links?
They say you need to fail at something many times before you succeed.
I tried to join the success stories of other internet affiliate marketers many times over the past few years. And failed many times.
I had no plan. I set no goals and I didn't have a to-do list.
But I bought lots of stuff that promised to make me successful. Build a site using this magic software. Get traffic by pushing this magic button. Get the internet marketing secrets of this guru, who's revealing them for the first time ever and become an internet marketing millionaire just like them.
It was all nonsense, but I fell for it.
Do you need extra cash?
Or is that a silly question?
Perhaps a better question is would you like your extra cash to come from an active or a passive income stream.
Do you understand the difference?
You can easily make extra cash from an active income stream.
If you have a suitable motor vehicle, you can sign up with a rideshare company like Uber or Lyft. Depending on where you live, this can be expensive. You will probably require some or all of a special driver's authorization, a permit for your car, a medical examination, a police check, annual vehicle inspections and increases to your registration, third party insurance and comprehensive insurance costs. In fact, you'll probably need special, much more expensive rideshare insurance.
But once you've got past all that, uploaded photos and installed the Uber and Lyft apps on your smartphone, you're ready to go.
Your income is then entirely dependent on how many hours you can spend driving. That makes it an active income stream.
