Online Business Guide

 

Greetings, everyone!

This website section is dedicated to all the people who want to learn how to create their own Online Business.

My name is Andrei and I am the founder of this website. Before going further, make sure to check the About Me page.

I have a question for you before we begin: "Are you a sheep or are you a wolf?"

Let's face it. Most of you are struggling with your 9-5 office job. You are constantly working your a** off for someone that doesn't appreciate you enough. And what do you get in exchange?  $1000 a month? $2000? $4000? $8000? 

This might sound great to you because this is exactly what the big corporations want us to believe. However, once you pay your rent, bills, car expenses etc., how much money do you still have in your account? More than $2000? 

I bet that most of you don't have this kind of money left at the end of each month. This is completely normal because this is how it is supposed to happen. 

The big corporations exploit you as much as they can. They don't pay you enough on purpose, in order for you to not afford to not work anymore.

This is what they call "Modern Slavery"

For you to work your a** off, helping others to achieve their dreams, while they are paying you enough money to help you survive from month to month. They will never pay you more money in order for you to follow your dream.

If you would do that, then who would work for their dreams?!

Still don't believe me? Then I raise you the following question: "How could people in 20s and 30s afford to buy a car, a house, have 3 children with only one wage and even live happily?"  

In today's society, both parents need to have a full time job and sadly most of them couldn't afford to take a decent holiday trip in the last few years.

We are basically supposed to go to college (In order to get a "better" job), get thousands of dollars/euros/pounds etc. in debt, to spend 50-60 years working to pay that debt and to simply die. 

So, what can you do to escape this vicious cycle?

The simple answer is to build your own business. The main problem? A real world business requires a large investment of both time and money.  In present, I don't how is like in your country, but in mine all the taxes are increasing.

Therefore, without any investment is very hard to start a real world business. However,  a greater alternative is an Online Business and my mission here is to take you step by step and help you create your online business.

  You can put your card aside because you won't need any investment in order to start!

 Are you ready to turn your life around?

By the end of this section you will learn

  • How does an Online Business work;
  • How to choose the right business;
  • How to build a website;
  • How to create quality content;
  • What is SEO and how to index your website;
  • What is Affiliate Marketing;
  • Other methods to monetize your website
  • and
  • Importance of Social Media

 

As I said before, all those will cost you exactly 0$!!

 

Let's begin!

 

 

More reasons why you should consider in having your own business.

First of all, your own business should be seen as more than just a business. For me it is a back up plan in case that I will get fired from a job or it just represents an extra source of money in case an emergency appears.

It is true and you probably know that if you work at a corporation during it's consolidation phase your position, as well as other people's positions is on the line.

Therefore why don't you want a back-up plan? Why won't you have an online business that requires little to no investment to support your back in the transition time when you are searching for another job?

Second of all, having your own business has its own privilege. Imagine that you work hard for yourself, you don't have annoying work colleagues and you also don't have to kiss your boss's a** to get promoted.

You will also be able to choose what your business will be about (further information will be discussed in the following lessons) and one of the main advantages is that you can start your empire as a moonlight business.

Furthermore, you will be able to build a business around your hobbies and you will also earn money from it. Moreover, the most important aspect of having your business is that, with time passing, you will be able to spend valuable time near your loved ones and you will be able to live "on your own terms".

So, if that tempts you, then I suggest you to continue reading this lessons.

How does an Online Business actually work

Having an online business is not as complicated as it sounds.

I believe that the most simple way to explain the process is to compare it to a company in the real world.

In the real world you will need 3 main components in order to have a business

 Location, Products or services and Customers.

An Online Business follows the same 3 fundamental criteria.
  • The location of our online company will be on our own website.

I will show you how you can create your own website in less than 30 seconds for free. Yes it sounds like a regular scam but I assure you that it's not.

This is one of the highest advantages of having an online business than a business in the real world. Having a business in the city, you would need to have it in a crowd zone such that more people will notice you. Usually the rent for those exclusive locations is very high and you will get access to what? 500 people a month? 1000? 5000?

With an online business you will have access to all the internet users. That is over 3 billion. Sure, it depends only on you to manage to get them to visit your website. But I am here to help you, remember that.

  • Products and services

There are many ways to monetize your website and to earn from it.

You can generate a passive income from Google Adwords, Affiliate Marketing, selling your products and many other ways that will  be discussed later in this free guide.

  • Customers

As I said on before, on the internet, there are currently over 3 billion users.

So this is how it all work

The first thing you have to do is to choose what your business is going to be about.

After that you have to attract visitors to your website through website content development. You have to start creating posts/pages/articles around your topic in order to attract the target audience.

After you have a large audience, you can start monetizing your website.

Keep in mind that the most important thing is to grow your website's traffic through content creation and social media.
 THIS IS YOUR MAIN GOAL.
More traffic = More Income.

Don't waste time  monetizing your website until you don't have a large audience!!!!!!!

 

Overall

Benefits of a Business.

  • A business represents a solution to escape from your 9-5 work routine;
  • A business can help you do what you truly desire;
  • A business will help you achieve your personal goals on your own terms;
  • While working hard, you will definitely create an everlasting business that you can leave as a legacy for your children.

Benefits of an Online Business

  • It requires little to no investment. Therefore, you won't need to beg and make loans at the bank in order to start it. You won't need to sell shares of your company. You can start from FREE and I will show you how.
  • It diminishes your losses. If you start an online business in a domain and you don't see results, you can easily start another business in another domain without wasting any money.
  • It provides you access to a much larger audience that is over 3 billion people.
  • You will have a flexible schedule. You will be able to work from home at any time, any amounts of hours.
  • You can spend more time with your loved ones.
  • It is a great source of "passive income". Of course, only after you spend some time working on it.
  • You will be able to finally travel the world and live on your own terms.

So how much can you earn?

It is impossible for me to give you an exact value. The outcome of your income will depend only on how much time you spend working on it and on your sole imagination.

An income of $2000 or $5000 is nothing. There are a lot of people that earn over $100,000 a month. However, they spent a lot of time working on their business and this is why they have succeeded. 

PS: I know that it can be challenging to process all the information that I will provide you, but remember that I'm here to help you! Whenever you have problems understanding something just ask me in the comment section. Don't even think about the fact that your question might sound silly. There is no such thing of silly questions. 

So, what are you waiting for?

  5. This is great so far. I totally forgot about creating a Google+ account- thanks for the reminder! Can’t wait to keep reading.

    1. Hello Brianna!

      Thank you for your positive thoughts! Unfortunately, I experience some difficulties from an overloaded schedule this month and I do not know how much content will I be able to create. Hopefully, starting from the next month, I will resume my activity and I will create lots of interesting content. You can ask me about anything and I will write a special post in order to explain it better for you!

      Thank you for stopping by!

  6. Andrei,

    I really like that you have set us up for future posts of how to build the business. I want to read more and that is great. Nice work,

    Marc

    1. Hi Marc!!

      Thank you for your appreciation. It’s really great to see that you and other visitors enjoy my articles! This week, I’m struggling a little with my schedule due to the fact that I will visit England again, but I will try to write one or two articles.

      Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a great day!

  7. hey Andrei, I have tried following your link end up at WA creating a free SiteRubix website. Though I do see my website indexed by google however it does not rank well. Any tips for me?

    1. Hi William!

      Google doesn’t trust very much the new websites. As I saw and read a few blogs, both on WA and on other forums, your website needs to have around 5-6 months before Google starts to trust it and decides to give it a proper rank. Until then make sure to write as much new content as you can. Try not to spam your websites with duplicate content or with affiliate links and if you would like to have better chances at getting an income until then, I suggest you promote your website on social media networks. With months passing, you will be able to see that you will get more organic traffic. If you have any other questions make sure to ask me!

      Wish you best of luck!

  8. Very good advice. I think a lot of people thinks that you put a site in action and it just becomes a success because it is there. Traffic as you pointed out, is very important. Thanks for spreading light on the matter.

    1. Hi Ronnie!

      Indeed, a lot of people seem to be obsessed and to focus only on methods of how you can monetize your website. It’s not entirely wrong, but if you’re constantly hustling your visitors in order for them to converse into income, that will might scare them. It is good, especially for the first 5-6 months to focus more on content development! Thank you for stopping by!

      Kind regards,

      Andrei.

  9. Hi Andrei,

    Great article!
    I found it really easy to read and very helpful.
    I’ve recently joined WA myself, but I’m a bit overwhelmed by the social networking aspect. Is there a way of using Facebook and Twitter without having to use your personal account?

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    1. Hi Sarah!!

      As far as I know, Twitter allows you in having multiple accounts. Facebook, on the other hand, forbids you in having multiple accounts, but you can always create a new page. It’s a simple procedure that will only take you less than 5 minutes on average. Don’t worry, your FB friends won’t be aware of your new page unless you decide to share it on your profile.

  10. Great level of information and guidance here. I am so fed up with all the scams and honestly feel overwhelmed sometimes.

    Reading your article has give me a new perspective on this. the road is a bit clearer now. i think you are correct, you need a system and a certain method to follow.
    Thanks for the great insight.

    1. Hello James!

      I’m sorry to hear that you stumbled across scams on the web. Unfortunately, a lot amount of people fall for a scam in their lifetime. I will try to create soon more content about how you can recognise a scam and save both your time and money.

      Building your own business is the safest way to earn a passive income on the internet in today’s society.

      Don’t get misled by my article. It is possible to achieve success while following your own path, but with time you will see that it will take more time for you than for the people who chose an already explored path. If you follow someone’s else path and you experience difficulties, you can quickly overlook what did the other person in order to overwhelm the dead end.

  11. Hi Andrei, very simple and informative. Love this post so much because the site has creative design.
    I looked for ways to make money online since last a few years ago, but I didn’t know where to start. I found the scammers were endless and there was a big mine field in online. Every time I only lose money.
    Can you tell me where to stay safe and start an online business?
    Thanks

    1. Hello Maun!

      I tend to believe, as far as I know, that they safest place out there is Wealthy Affiliate. The most important thing is that they offer you a free membership, they don’t request any card details that other websites might do and they also provide you two websites with free hosting. I advise you not to rush in and first allow yourself time to read more about it on my Number #1 recommendation.

  12. Great info here. I recently started to get into affiliate marketing. I’m constantly looking for tips and advice so your article is helpful to me. I love that this article breaks down the important points of starting an online business without any extra b.S. to read. Thanks for the info. – Bill

    1. Hi Bill!

      Welcome to Affiliate Marketing!

      You selected the right path. Don’t worry, I will never have “miraculous secrets” for which you have to pay on the website. However, in the future, I believe that I would add some important tutorials of business expansion and strategy that will cost money, but I will try to keep the price as low as possible, 5$ probably, just to be able to pay for website domain and hosting. Please take a look on the whole website and whenever you sense bs make sure to write in the comments and I will rewrite the whole article! 😀

  13. I love your step by step, this is what you do next format. When you’re starting out and have absolutely no idea what to do, your tips and layout are perfect. Wealthy affiliate seems like a great place to get the support (which is so important) when you are building your own website with content.

    1. Greetings Linda!

      When I started all of this I never found any clear structure for free anywhere on the web. Therefore, I decided to create myself a structure that the new start-ups could follow in order to build and expand their online business. I’m glad that you enjoyed my layout. Wealthy Affiliate is indeed a good source of help with lots of information from marketing to website coding to choosing plugins and website support. However, they don’t provide you with a clear structure on how you should develop your website and that’s what I’m trying to do here :D.

      Thanks for stopping by,

      Andrei.

  14. Hey Andrei –

    Good looking post you have here, you laid everything out clearly. I can’t think of any basic information you missed out on, so good job! Keep it coming.

  15. Hi Andrei,

    I really like your post here. It is very much to the point and you do include all of the basics someone needs to start an online business. It’s all about growing the traffic to your website! Good work! 🙂

    1. Hi Denis!

      Thank you for your comment, I truly appreciate it!

      Indeed, I believe that for the first 4-5 months, people should focus more on writing content based on specific keywords that are selected with a keyword tool. However, getting traffic to your website should not be your main concern. The main concern that a website owner should have is to provide the visitor quality content. It will be useless to have 2,000 visitors a day if they will leave your website in less than a minute. Provide them useful information and they will stay on your website and maybe they would even share your website with their friends and acquaintances.

  16. Interesting and informative post. Wouldn’t mind coming back to check out your other posts. I’ve bookmarked the site now. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hello Bosola!

      Thank you for your interest. I’m glad to hear that you decided to bookmark my website and I hope that when you’ll visit again, it will kindly surprise you.

      Kind regards,

      Andrei.

  17. Andrei,

    What social media platforms should I start to grow my online business with? I have Twitter and Instagram. Should I be using anything else?

    1. Welcome back, Kurtis!!

      Twitter I think is alright. I don’t use Instagram. It depends very much on what type of business you have. If you have one like mine to promote methods of making online money, then I recommend you to give it a try to Google + and Linkedin and of course facebook. If your online business is about food or anything else then I suggest you make an account on Pinterest, Google+ and Facebook! 😀

  18. I completely agree with you. A online business is the best way to go. Very little costs vs. a brick and mortar company. One of the best parts is being your own boss, making your own hours, writing about what YOU want to. The perks are endless. You just have to stick in there and dont give up. There are days when you may want to quit but don’t. The end result is what is going to be the worth every hour spent behind your computer.

    Great Article! Thank you for posting.

    1. Hi, Justin!

      I am glad that you agree with me! Well yes, many young entrepreneurs that haven’t tasted results yet may want to quit. It is completely normal to want to quit since you got stuck and you don’t see results. However, for those people, I have created a special section at the end of the guide to keep them motivated. You can find it at this address.
