How To Start An Online Business

Frustration Laptop OfficeIf you have been pondering the idea of starting an online business then you are probably tired of the rat race of a 9-5 JOB, or working more hours than you see your family. But you don’t know how to start an online business then this article will help you take that first step.
This article will be a short and simple outline of one of the easiest ways to start your own online business so you can work from home and spend more time with your family. It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3.

Let’s Get Started

First and foremost you will need to decide on which training platform you want to use. There are so many programs online that it can be very confusing and frustrating trying to find a legitimate training program that is proven to work and is also super affordable.

My first choice is Wealthy Affiliate. With the training I received here I have been able to generate a small stream of extra income in just a few months.

Even though it is just a small amount of extra income right now I know it will increase as my site grows and becomes more well-known and trusted in the search engines such as Google and Yahoo as time goes on.

Step One

Signing up for Wealthy Affiliate is super easy. All you need to do is click on the link to take you to the sign up page.

On the sign up page you will enter you name and email address. They will not ask you for any type of payment information. This is one of the best things about Wealthy Affiliate, you really get to try it before you buy it.

The Starter Membership is completely free. I don’t know about you but I like the sound of free. It gives you access to the first course (this includes all ten lessons in Course One) so you can see how the training is structured to make sure this is a right fit for you.

If you decide to stay and take advantage of the one time upgrade to a Premium Membership you will have access to all the training courses including the live training.

Step TwoGlobe Paper Idea

Picking your domain name and building your website are included in both the Free Membership and the Premium membership.

Your website is your virtual store front. This is your foundation, this is where your online business will be built. So really give your domain name some thought, try to find a name that can be associated with the niche you pick.

If you need more information on how to decide on a niche read my article “Picking Your Niche” it will give you some ideas to make this task a little easier.

Step Three

Write content. I’m sure you’ve been to websites where you have read articles or maybe watched videos. This is all referred to as content. Content, specifically unique content, is what your website is all about. This is where you will need to stand out among all the other internet sites.

By writing your own unique content the search engines will rank you so your site will appear in the first few pages when someone does an online search for specific “keywords” such as “best Pet Foods” or “Diabetic Diet” whatever keywords you have in your articles.

So those are the three basic steps to start an online business.

Training – The Crucial ElementTraining Laptop Charts

But I want to tell you more about the training because it really is the most important aspect, especially if you are brand new to building your online business.

The training you receive can make or break your business. If you are just dabbling into this as a hobby and you are not serious about building a business that will someday replace your 9-5 job then maybe you don’t think you need to put in so much time on getting the appropriate training.

But if you are serious and you truly have the desire to build a successful online business then the training is crucial.

I tried other training courses and I was scammed out of a few hundred dollars. Thankfully I came across Wealthy Affiliate before I invested thousands of dollars on that other course, I was actually in the process of trying to get loans to pay for the $10,000 tuition fees.

My first experience with Wealthy Affiliate was skepticism after already being scammed by the other guys. But the free membership got my attention so I went ahead and signed up.

I built my profile and found my way to the first course of training that was included in the free membership.

The training is step by step and includes videos that correlate with each lesson.

It did not take me long to decide that I was going to be here for a long time and on the second day I signed up for the Premium Membership.

Wealthy Affiliates platform covers everything that a new online marketer needs to know to build a successful business.

From picking the niche for you site, keyword research, writing and publishing content and basic marketing tools, it is all included in the premium membership.

One thing that someone new to internet marketing might not know is when you have a domain, that domain will have to be hosted somewhere. You will also have to have some sort of website security. There are usually additional fees for these services but at Wealthy Affiliate they are all included in the premium membership.

Wealthy Affiliate offers so many tools to help you be successful that if you follow the training there really is no way to fail.

  1. Hello Pam, nice post. I really felt like you were speaking to me directly and giving me the 411 on starting an online business.

    • Hi Harvey, Thank you for reading my article, I know when I first started my website I didn’t have any idea on what was involved in building an online business. I had bits and pieces of knowledge that I picked up here and there but didn’t know how it all fit together. One of the things I love about Wealthy Affiliate is that the training was all step by step so all the pieces fall together in the order they should. There wasn’t any guessing on what to do next.
      I hope you found my post helpful, if you are interested you can read my article Best Home Based Business if you would like further ideas on working from home.
      Best Regards, Pam

  2. Hi Pam. I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiment that if a person is truly both interested and motivated towards creating success for him/herself in running an online business, (and especially for the first time) that what Wealthy Affiliate has to offer would provide everything necessary in reaching the person’s financial goals.

    Wealthy Affiliate provides the blueprint as far as what is offered in the program – a 4-step process enabling one to slowly build up profits. WA makes it abundantly clear that building up a successful business is not something done in a matter of weeks or even a few months. It takes TIME as well as a full commitment coming from that individual.

    Other than that, nothing is more important than the person following the 4 steps outlined in your article, Pam. The most crucial step in building up a business once a grasp of the training available would have been learned is the need for adding relevant content to the person’s website. Even training on writing content and all that would be involved during the process is something that IS taught at WA.

    A very wonderfully written article, Pam that you took the time in writing. It spells out specifically what could be accomplished if a person decides to join WA in his/her efforts to build a business for him/herself!


    • Thank you Jeff, it means so much to me that you enjoyed my article. There are so many people that think they can start making money overnight and simply don’t realize the time and effort it can take to build a successful online business.

      I found the training at Wealthy Affiliate was just what I needed to succeed and I just want to spread the word about this fabulous training platform.

      I wish you much success


  3. This review is just all I need for getting started. What brings the most fear in people is the scammers online. But looking at this review, it is convincing that WA is a no scam zone. Nonetheless a lot of dedication is needed to make the said money. Building a website and knowing how to go about it is also very important., I think that is why the training is the first start up process to enlighten people on what and whatnots

    • I know too well about some of the scammers out there, I invested a few hundred dollars elsewhere before I found Wealthy Affiliate, they are by far the best training platform with the strongest community support system that I have found.

      Thank you for reading my article, I wish you success


  4. Hi, nice post. I liked it because it’s easy to read and to understand. I totally agree with you about Wealthy Affiliate. Me too, I was a bit skeptical at the beginning but not about this platform. I wasn’t sure I would understand how to start an online business because everything was completely new to me. I had a lot of questions about but fortunately the WA community is always ready to help you out.

    • Thank you for reading my post, everything was new to me when I started also, I didn’t know a single thing about building websites or having my own business. I also had already been scammed by another platform so I was afraid of being scammed again but joining Wealthy Affiliate has turned out to be the best decision I’ve made for a home based business.

      I have learned so much and am so thankful for all the community support.

      Wishing you success


  5. Hi
    Way back in 2009 I started blogging and then stopped because I did not find any good platform to learn. Again in 2017, I wanted to blog because it is my passion and was searching for a good platform.In six months of research, finally, I landed up in wealthy affiliate and since then there is no turning back. Now I own 2 websites and doing well with their training. I love WA. But the only thing is you have to devote time and put effort to be a success. It is not a quick rich system as scammers do.
    Thanks for your post explaining step by step about WA.

    • You are so welcome, thank you for reading my post. I’m glad you were finally able to stumble upon Wealthy Affiliate and make it your home for your websites. I stumbled onto also while I was researching the other platform that was going to cost me $1,000’s. I too am very thankful that I found WA. The training platform is just what anyone new to the industry needs or even a seasoned marketer looking for the best hosting platform, I really believe that WA is the best in the industry for building a home based business.

      I wish you success


  6. Hi Pam

    You make it sound so easy to start your own online business, I wish I could have found this article years ago. I wasted so much time searching the internet for legit ways to make money online and really regret that.

    I’m a member of WA already, but if I was not, I would’ve signed up immediately after reading this post. I believe you will help a lot of people making the right decision in choosing the best training platform.

    Thank you and take care!

    • Thank you so much for reading my article and for your kind words. I think Wealthy Afiliate is the best place to be for anyone who wants to work from home.
