Plus: How to Start Today
You can’t go far enough if you do not know what an online business is all about: keywords, keywords analysis, website building software, internet marketing techniques, SEO. You do not have to know all or any of this right now. Nor do you know have to know all the details of website building, WordPress blogs plug-ins. In fact, the less you know right now, the easier it will be for you to pick up good habits from the very beginning.
Education is paramount, but before you acquire it, you need the following:
a. being committed to learning and working
b. being coachable
c. having access to the internet
d. the best keyword tool (that gives access to extra benefits to save you money)
In fact, if you can open your email account and can understand English, you can build a GREAT home based business online still with zero “internet skills” right now as long as you fulfill the above mentioned conditions.
The condition that precedes points a,b,c,d is this: you need to like the idea of having the internet business.
Time frame to see the first financial results
2-6 weeks if you fulfill the conditions above.
Potential Initial Income within these 2-6 weeks
Roughly $0 – $800 ( depends on how good a listener and student you are; could be more)
Selling your own digital products that you do NOT need to create! Or, creating your own niche websites using website building tools easier than wordpress blogs! Or writing on topics of your interest and learning to get paid from advertising and more.
My Own Digital Products?
You can get them without creating them and then selling them on your website with 100% profit for yourself. There are companies that offer you just that:
• you can download a number of ebooks, ready-made articles to place on your multiple websites (with free hosting) along with the blueprint on how to sell them, generate free organic traffic for them in order to get 100% of profit from the sales and from advertising.
2. Knowing where to get this education
There are many companies online offering some online courses: not necessarily bad but rather mediocre. They do offer some products and services but, often, they are created to get a quick sale and then lose interest in you. They create something and move on to something else while collecting passive income from those who joined.
When you find an online company, make sure there is an atmosphere of genuine learning environment: they develop new software, create more programs, have a true wealth of training materials etc. not to mention great business support. Just saying that they will help you, without the above mentioned components, is like air on the Moon.
How can you know that? By testing the company environment yourself for free or a nominal fee when you join.
Keep in mind that great companies depend on the ever increasing number of customers ONLY because of the quality materials and services they offer. They are so confident you will like their products or services that they let you try them for a couple of bucks ( or free) and, usually, do not ask you to put up $99.00 upfront hoping you will forget the renewal time.
3. Applying IMMEDIATELY what you have just learned
Make sure that what you have learned you can apply right away. Resist the urge to try new things soon because what it means is that what you learned will soon have no value to you; that means two most valuable things will be wasted: time and money.
Great things do require some time; 2-4 weeks is the absolute reasonable minimum to start an online business. It may take longer, too! You will stick to it if you recognize a great value in what you are trying. This is rather easy to see and appreciate. It is best if you can try out the new software during the free ( or low priced) trial. Avoid dishing out $99.00 to try out a service.
Compare which is better:
Company A: cost $2.00 for a 2 week trial or
Company B: cost $99.00 upfront with the option to cancel before 4 weeks are over (if you remember)
Certainly there are exceptions to this rule, but it is something to bear in mind.
4. Overall Support For Your Own Business
Equally important, especially if you are new to the internet marketing, is the ability to address most, if not all, your educational and business needs in one place. A lot of people will study something in one place, something else in yet another one, buy a domain in another place, pay for hosting in a different place, learn marketing techniques somewhere and, after all this, have no business support because they do everything alone!
That is a lot of jumping from one place to another to save a few dollars but wasting a lot of time. In addition to this, there is little accountability on the part of the company where you only learned how to do business online because they may be teaching you things that may be done differently.
Thus, to me, it makes a lot more sense to be in the company where they not only teach you how to do business online, but also provide support and help you run your business the way they taught you. This way, you can always go back and ask them about things that do not work and get their help.
After trying out so many things alone, I learned it all in one company where they took me from A to Z ( both education and business support); thus I had more confidence about starting and running my business in one place only ( including domain purchase, free hosting benefits for an unlimited number of domains etc.). I realized later how much time and money I have saved doing it this way.
I think it is especially important if you are thinking of starting something new today, want to save money but, at the same time, you want to have a reliable business online that is producing the best of all incomes: residual income from multiple streams that you yourself, a real beginner, learn to create having the tools, education and support for your own online business at your fingertips.
If I told you that you could have the first profit in less than 2 weeks, you might not believe me, so I won’t say that. True, it may take longer for some people. But the fact is, you can be in charge of the speed of generating your own residual online income from more than one source. Could there be something better than that?
What you need first is to like the idea of having an internet based business where you are in charge of making it bigger and bigger. Once you like this idea, the rest will fall into place.
I learned it the hard way and owe it to one company that helped me get where I am. I hope this article will shed some light on how to go about doing it the efficient way. You can learn more on my website if you would like to visit.
