InternetMarketingBlog101.com 2 Well it is not. You guessed right. It is easier said than done. I'm not going to argue with you about it. But let me tell you this; once you start making money using nothing but the internet - your life will never be the same. It will change your entire life forever. How bad do you want to make it happen now?.... If you know that making money online will literally change AND improve your entire life, then why not go all the way with it? Working on building an online business is just like working on building any other offline business. You are building your business from scratch so be aware that you might not get paid at the beginning. Take this process as an internship. It is even cheaper to start up a business on the online than off-line. You already knew this right?.... Most new people online quit very fast because they don't see a paycheck very fast. You cannot build a business with this mindset. And I hope you are not one of these people, especially not anymore after reading this. You cannot allow firing yourself when your goal is to build an online business. Get it in your head from the beginning that this works and ANYONE can make it happen. Period. If you are a complete newbie to internet marketing and making money online, don't worry, you can still use and follow this information to build a solid online business from home. In this article you will learn how you can build an online business you can manage from home - or anywhere you have an internet connection. With today's technology you can now build an entire business online straight from your iPhone or Smart Phone. You can literally create a monthly residual income from the internet using nothing else but your smart phone or your tablet. Amazing uh!!! As you should already know, this post will teach you how to build a home based business from scratch using the internet. The internet is the main tool you will need to get started. This is what you will need to start up your online business: A good internet connection. A computer, tablet, a very smart phone or any latest device that lets you access the internet. Some writing skills. A budget to invest and play with. ($1,000+ or more if you can - the more the better) Time to get the work done every day. At least 2 hours a day. Again, the more the better here too but only temporarily. :) A bank account and a debit card. So you can pay and get paid. </li> <li> 3. InternetMarketingBlog101.com 3 A quiet and peaceful space where you can work. An office. A notebook where you will write your goals plans and everything you learn. A fan to stay cool. A burning desire to make this happen no matter what! Are you ready to learn what to do next? You have to be willing to do all of the work though. There is no point on "trying" this and just giving it a small try. NO! I have seen people quit very fast because they want to get results very fast and sometimes the work is "too much" for them. But what they do not realize is that they would work even harder and even more on an average job, getting paid a tiny portion of the money made there and being bossed around by a "boss". Why not spend the same amount of time and effort to build something that will pay you over and over again in the long term? I understand that you would want a fast cash flow and of course that can happen once you build the business. But previous to that you will have to suck it up and just be okay with working without getting paid for a while. Here are the things you will need to learn once you are ready to build your online business: Free Internet Marketing Strategies. Paid Internet Marketing Strategies. How to create your own product/services or how to sell someone else's products or services as an affiliate. How to build a website from scratch. How to brand your name online. How to capture leads and follow up with them (email marketing) How to monetize your revenue. How to re-invest at least 20% of the money you earned online. How to outsource most of the work. How to live the way YOU want to live. Period. By now you should have a better idea of how you are going to build your own online business from scratch. Hopefully the way I put this information here will be easy for you to understand, I know how it is to try to learn from a complicated article. I'm going to keep the information as simple as possible but very valuable at the same time. The main key to success here though, will be CONSISTENCY and MASSIVE ACTION. </li> <li> 4. InternetMarketingBlog101.com 4 Get ready to be best friends with both. You will need to follow and do the necessary process to get traffic, capture leads, follow up with them and eventually make sales. There is no other way around it. Get it straight from the get-go. The way you get traffic will depend on you and on the size of your budget. If you a good amount of money to start up then you might want to learn about Paid Internet Marketing Strategies. You can either pay for traffic or pay for the tools to get free organic traffic. Now, if you are low in money, you can still get results with the free internet marketing strategies but be aware that you will have to work a lot more here. You can get free organic traffic with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for example but the process will take time, patience and effort. Now......lets dive into the whole process you need to take to build an online business. How to build a home based business from scratch? 1 - Pick a Niche What are you passionate about?...... painting, art, cars, movies, sports, boxing, product reviewing.... ? </li> <li> 5. InternetMarketingBlog101.com 5 You need to find your niche. If you don't know what a Niche is.... ...here is the online definition: a comfortable or suitable position in life or employment. noun: one's niche; plural noun: one's niches "he is now a partner at a leading law firm and feels he has found his niche" synonyms: ideal position, place, function, vocation, calling, mtier, job More "he found his niche in life" a specialized but profitable corner of the market. "important new niche markets" Find what you are really passionate about so you can build an online business around it. That way you will love what you do for a living and it will make it much easier to work on it. The more comfortable you are with the work you do the easier it will be to accomplish your business goals. Let's say you like "drawing and art". And you would like to write about drawing and art. You probably would want to share your drawing techniques and share the art you love. If you want to do that and make money at the same time you probably would want to share your thoughts and knowledge through a blog site. A blog is what will make you the money in your online business. Your blog site will be the heart of your online business. It will basically be the store that represents what you have for sale related to the topic you keep talking about. Hope this helps you pick your niche. 2 - Do a Keyword Research Once you know what you want to work with (your niche) - it's time to learn how to do a keyword research so you can buy a domain name, build a blog site and start sharing search engine optimized content so you can get free organic traffic. Before you buy a domain name - I highly recommend you to do a good keyword research on your niche. Try to get a keyword as a domain name for your blog. Pick something short and sweet. </li> <li> 6. InternetMarketingBlog101.com 6 If your blog site is going to be about drawing and arts then your domain name should be something like: www.drawingtutorialsonline.com. Now take a look at how many people search for the keyword; "drawing tutorials online" in the search engines. Getting a domain like that will help people find your site in the search engines. It will also be much targeted traffic since the people is actually looking for that information. This is the best free targeted traffic you can get. Of course you would do all of this if you are building a niche blog. If you want to just build a blog with your name as the domain name for an instance..... ....you can do that too and you can still make money with that blog site. You will need to do a lot of keyword research related to the things you are going to be talking about on your blog site. If you are going to be blogging about drawing techniques then you should gather a bunch of long-tail-keywords with good monthly traffic and low competition so you can write your content with them. Once you have your keywords you will have to optimize your blog posts with them. This is called search engine optimization and it is very simple to learn and follow.

If you have no idea how to build a website - don't worry, it's not complicated to get done and you could also pay someone else to do it for you. It is up to you. You can use a website called Fiverr.com to find people that will help you with almost anything for $5 bucks. Here is what I personally do every time I want to get a new website: 1. I go to Godaddy.com to find the domain name I want. 2. I do a search and try to find the domain name I want. 3. Once I bought the domain name I go to Hostgator.com (I'm already a customer) and set up the hosting for that domain. 4. I use the application called Fantastico Deluxe to install WordPress on the root domain name. (WordPress is a blogging platform) 5. I either pick a free blog site theme or I try to buy a cheap one. Up to you. Free themes works fine. 6. I create a sub-domain for a capture page and a sales page (sales funnel). I usually design the squeeze pages myself but you can also outsource this part and pay someone to do it for you. Here is an example of sub-domains: www.yourcapturepage.drawingtutorialsonline.com and www.yoursalesfunnel.drawingtutorialsonline.com. 7. I set all of the sites up and I use internet marketing strategies to generate traffic to all of these sites. Here is a quick video on how you can install WordPress on your Domain Name once you bought it and set up the Hosting with Hostgator.com: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpEba_xpknc Whatever you decide here, just know that you need a website to start up your online business. You might not need one in order to make money online but I highly recommend you to be the owner of a successful website. 4 - Monetize your Website This is where you decide how much you want to get paid. This is where you organize your online store (your website) with banners and affiliate links. If you are selling your own products then you should already have banners and text ads around your site. If you don't want to create your own product and go through all of that - you can still a lot of </li> <li> 8. InternetMarketingBlog101.com 8 money selling other products as an affiliate. Affiliate marketing is a very profitable business. Today most big and popular retails stores also have an affiliate program. Take Walmart.com for example - they have an affiliate program where you can get paid a percentage every time you refer someone to their site and they end up purchasing something. You will be amazed at how many stores today have an affiliate program where you can get paid for passing the word around. There is no excuse now why you wouldn't be able to make a sell online. You can sell almost anything online and get paid for it. You can also monetize your site with PPC ads (pay per click) - this is where you get paid by advertisers every time someone clicks on their ad from your site. The most popular advertising program today is Google AdSense. There are many ways to monetize your website's revenue - you can also try being creative with this. There are no rules when it comes to monetizing your site. As long as you do everything ethical and with good intentions - you're good. You will need to work on the conversions of your site though. You will have to keep moving your banners and affiliate links around, tweaking, testing and analyzing them to get the most clicks out of the traffic you are getting. 5 - Become an Affiliate As I already talked above, you want to become an affiliate of different products so you can have different income streams. You can become an affiliate of most of the tools you personally use for your internet marketing strategies. If you are using tools for your backlinks in SEO for example - you can become an affiliate of those products and recommend them to people. Since you are a customer as well, your reviews will have more value. Let's say you are using a good source for paid traffic - you can also see if they offer an affiliate program so you can make money by helping people buy good traffic. You will know better than anyone else because you are using it - right? Just give in order to receive! lol ;) There are also great affiliate programs where you get 100% commissions. As you should already know most affiliate programs offer you a max of 80% commissions sometimes, which is fine but if you can earn more why not. 6 - Drive Traffic to Your Website This is where your will power is tested. I would say that "generating website traffic" is what people struggle with the most online. I know </li>...</ul>
