Getting started online with a profitable business will require that you get some training. I have found the step by step approach to be best, so that I know exactly where to begin and what to do next. Working on the Internet is unlike anything we have ever done in the past, no matter what type of job or career you were working with before deciding to come online.
Starting a blog based on your niche is the first step, once you have chosen a niche to work in. I recommend choosing something that you have an interest in so that it will be more interesting. Think about the areas you are knowledgeable about and have an interest in, and then search for information on this topic to see if there are already products for sale. You will want at least some competition so that there will be a market for whatever you decide to sell.
Setting up an optin page and a mini-site will come next. No one uses a full website any more, so that will save you both time and money. Now you must learn how to be a successful marketer, and how to stay organized as you continue to build your business.
Before you take the time to create your own product, try learning how this all works by using affiliate marketing as your business model. As an affiliate you will be recommending the products and services you have used and benefited from yourself, so your personal recommendation will make a huge difference to those you are helping online.
