I get asked this question a lot, “Do I need a website to run an internet business? The answer is YES! Just like any grocery store needs a building, you need a website. It is your property to build your foundation. Anyone that tells you can run an internet business without one is most likely trying to scam you. You will need a computer, laptop, pad, or cell phone and an internet connection.
Where to Start?
#1-Pick a niche
Pick a good niche that is important to you. This is something, including myself, get stuck on. The more interested you are in your niche, the easier it will be for you to create content for it.
#2-Build a website
Your website is the foundation of your business. Just like a house or skyscraper, you want to have a solid foundation before you start building your business.
Make your content valuable to your reader. Teach something. Share pertinent information relevant to helping your target audience. Make sure you stay consistent with your content. You don’t want to stray from your original target audience. Content can be an array of things, from text to comments/dialogue within your content, to video and audio.
There are 100’s of ways you can make money from a site that has traffic. Here are just a few of the ways to give you some ideas.
- Selling Advertising (to other website owners)
- Selling Affiliate Products
- Selling Amazon Products
- Selling Products that You Own
- Selling the Actual Website
- Google Adsense (putting ads on your site)
- Pay Per Click
There are a ton more different ways to add to this list, out there.
#5-Do not Attempt Alone! (don’t reinvent the wheel)
Knowing how to start will only take you so far. You don’t have to try and figure it out on your own. There are so many scams out there, that it’s ridiculous. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it can be like riding through the wild west without a rifle or pistol-moving target.
