Starting an online business is a great hedge against inflation and a poor economy. Working from home, or from wherever you happen to be, can be beneficial to your family as well as your bank account.
It took me a full year to figure out how to do this, but now I am on my way. You can do the exact same thing to create a business that will build over time.
Choose a niche that you are interested in, have some experience with, and one that has people who are willing to purchase information on, and you will then be in business.
People search on Google, and the other search engines, for ways to solve their problems, so think of yourself as a problem solver. Provide information that they can use right away.
Start a blog on this topic, and post to it regularly.
I posted every day to my blog for the first two months or so, and that made me very visible in a short amount of time. Use your keywords in the title of your posts and tell people how to begin solving their problem.
Write articles based on these blog posts.
This is called repurposing and can be used to save time, and get your information out to a wider audience. When you give solid information in your articles, readers are more likely to visit your blog afterwards. Make sure you have a way for them to leave their name and email address so they will be added to your mailing list.
Hold a weekly teleseminar on the same topic you have been writing articles about, and posting to your blog.
When people hear you discussing the topic they become more involved with what you are doing. This engages them and makes them more likely to want to purchase more information from you.
Start a show on internet radio.
This is free, and one of most underutilized methods I know of. Your internet radio show can include the same information that you give during your teleseminars, but will potentially reach a much wider audience.
Become active in the social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.
These sites give you instant access to hundreds of thousands of people from around the world. Some of them will be interested in your exact topic, so invite them to read your articles, comment on your blog, attend your teleseminars, and listen to your radio shows.
Stay focused, and never give up.
So many people become discouraged when they don’t make money within a few months. Instead, just keep writing and speaking on your topic, and soon you will have a loyal audience of people that will follow what you are telling them about how to solve their problem.
