How To Start An Internet Business

Are you struggling to get started with your internet business?

The challenge for a lot of people stepping into the internet marketing space is where to begin.

There is so much opportunity it can be a bit overwhelming.

What systems, tools, resources and strategies do you follow?

The internet marketing business can feel like a maze where there is no way out once you enter.

You start subscribing to a bunch of emails and the next thing you know you are inundated with emails trying to sell you endless products and services.

What do you need, who do you trust and the big question, how will you put this all together to be successful?

Every business offline or online starts with an idea.

One of the great challenges working in an internet business is to keep it simple and to stay focused.

Select your niche that you want to work in and identify your target market.

Internet marketing strategy to get you going

You select a wordpress theme for your blog and make sure you pick one that is mobile responsive.

55% of all searches online today are with mobile devices and that will increase substantially over the next few years.

I highly recommend that you position yourself as an authority in your niche.

I know that you might be feeling that your not an authority but you can be if you work at it.

People like to buy from people they know, like and trust and that is often an authority.

I recommend that you use videos in your internet marketing strategy because you can set up a Youtube account for free.

You then shoot a short video introducing yourself on the home page and then right beside you have an optin box to collect names and emails.

Here is a short video to explain how to shoot a video.

Building a blogging business 101

Here are 3 common reasons why you won’t blog:

  1. Technology -maybe you are not technical and you feel overwhelmed
  2. What do you talk about?
  3. Why would someone listen to you?

These are all excuses because you can have a blog set up for less than a $1,000.00.

Try setting up a franchise or a typical brick and mortar business for a $1,000.00.

A blog can be a very successful internet business if you follow the right blueprint.

Your blog is a source to generate leads if you apply the right internet marketing strategy.

Find a mentor and get the right internet marketing training

Let me make something perfectly clear now.

You are not going to start a blog or any internet business where you will become successful overnight.

If anyone is selling you a get rich quick scheme turn and run because every successful business takes hard work, dedication, persistence and commitment.

There are a lot of people who sell you on the idea that they are a guru making tons of cash and living the dream doing practically nothing.

These are not the people you can trust.

Ask any successful internet business person and they will tell you their business changed when they found a mentor who showed them the blueprint.

The right mentor will offer the right internet marketing training which is a blueprint of exactly what they are doing.

One of the major pitfalls of beginners in the internet marketing space

I have seen so many many people fail both in offline and online businesses because they tried to figure everything out on their own.

I had over 20 years of traditional business experience when I started to merge online.

I figured with my business knowledge and experience I would be able to make an easy transition to be successful faster.

Was I ever wrong about that.

I’m not a technical person by nature and the learning curve was huge because I did not grow up with the internet.

My internet business changed for me when I clearly recognized that I needed help.

Since I did not know anyone online who had experienced success I had to do trial and error to find the right mentor.

Most internet marketers are selling incomplete puzzles and last years solutions.

Trust is the pillar of the foundation to any long term relationship.

My internet business shifted dramatically when I found the right mentors.

I went from struggling and making $00.00 for the first three years to making a little bit but then things changed.

I love waking up every morning to emails that say, “you have made another sale.”
