GOING TO START AN ONLINE BUSINESS?
LET ME HELP YOU TO TAKE YOUR FIRST STEP
Every online entrepreneur has to start from zero. Definitely, it should start by learning the strategies from a successful business person or business model that will work for you.
If you are looking to start your own online business and eager to say GOODBYE to your 9 to 5 job- you have come to the right place. Let me walk you through the mist of online venture.
Online business is not as easy as you have heard. It’s not like getting 1000$ overnight just by buying a software or program from the web. It needs hard labor and cool tactics of marketing.
And, it is not as hard as you will not be able to manage from your home. If you play by the rules- there is nothing that can stop you to become a successful online celebrity.
Kinds of Business
There are lot’s of business to do online. To get to the short form I am listing some of them for you.
- Becoming a freelancer (many categories are in here)
- Selling Books and other digital products
- Becoming a writer
- Affiliate marketing
- Consultancy … … … and so on.
So, choosing the right business is a vital thing. Let’s say- you want to be a blogger or sell a service online you will need an online blog/site to represent yourself. You can connect with the clients and progressive buyer from the online frontier.
Affiliate marketing is by far the most interesting and safe online business, where you can refer people to the affiliate’s website to earn commissions.
Blogging is a favorite pastime of many people and some are earning a SIX FIGURE income with it.
WHATEVER OTHER PEOPLE SAY- YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR OWN SITE/BLOG TO EARN AS AN ONLINE AFFILIATE.
Buy a Domain
The first thing you’ll need to start an online business is to buy a top TLD domains like .com. This is needed to start a good-looking website or blog. I will recommend you to use Namecheap to register your domain. They are the best in the market. Don’t forget to buy your domain related to your business.
Choose the Right Hosting
Next, you’ll need a decent hosting to host your website. One thing to remember that- if you look for a cheap hosting you may ruin your business. You need to up and run your website/blog nicely without any shortage of bandwidth or server problem. I am listing the best 3 hosting that I have used and verified myself for my own business.
01. HOSTGATOR: By far the best web-hosting I ever used. My sites are always up and the server speed is good. The support and problem solving capacity is also better than anywhere I have been. You can get a nice discount for the first payment for yearly subscription. Use: “delwarjahan” as the coupon and you’ll get a 25% discount
02. BLUEHOST: Reliable and affordable hosting for most people to start his own blog/site. Search the web for some discount coupon if you like. I am recommending to get a yearly plan
03. JUST HOST: They are my third choice for business hosting. I have used their shared hosting and it’s comparable to any other hosting company. You might get quite a good discount (HALF PRICE!) if you can use the coupon code ‘50OFF’ in the registering process.
What Software or Backbone to Use?
I use WordPress to create the blog sites I am earning from. WordPress is the best backbone an affiliate marketer or blogger should use. The software is free and can be downloaded from wordpress.org.
There are lot of themes available on the web. Some of them are free and some are paid. You can choose any nice themes for your design need. Just install new theme and you’ll have a new outlook for your blog. For the affiliate marketer my recommendation is to use the thesis theme. Thesis theme is
- SEO friendly
- Loads faster
- Can be modified easily
- The conversion is better for it’s simple outlook.
If you can’t handle the WordPress and the theme installation- you can always hire someone to do that for you. Try someone on oDesk or ELance. Even you can send me a mail to do this for you.
I will charge you $49 for configuring a workable site for your business.
WHAT TO DO NEXT?
Now you have your own online frontier. Depending on the business model you choose- you can convert your blog/site into an affiliate site and review products, make a portfolio site for your services or you can blog on the niche you are interested.
