The Anatomy of Your Online Business
We get hundreds of easy to become millionaire schemes regularly on email. Poor Bill Gates, Warren Buffet’s and the likes; they missed these schemes and made their millions the hard way.
Whoever is offering these schemes are not lying. They are 100% correct.
With these schemes, people become a millionaire or at least become very rich.
But the only people who become millionaires are the people who are selling these schemes. Not the ones who buy these!
Now the question is, can you really make money online?
Yes. It is possible.
Most of you reading this article are having a “Normal Job”. Every day you get up in the morning, rush to the office, come back home and repeat the process throughout the month.
End of the month you collect the paycheck.
And you go through this process for a decade or more and experience your financial situation rises a little.
But so is the cost of living, your expenses, and the inflation…
But how is online business different?
The online business model is different and unique!
Strictly speaking, you can start your online business with just $ 15.00 a year for a domain and run 100% by yourself in your free time. And once it is up and running and starts to generate income, then even if you do not come to your site for a few days, it will still make the same amount of money.
And usually what you earn from your online business stays with you; you don’t spend it for rent, salaries, or any other monthly fixed costs.
So with your online business, what you have is a type of business that is low cost, easy to manage, and with a huge income potential.
Now let us look at a brick and mortar business.
Usually, for your brick and mortar business, you need good investment; maybe a few hundred thousand dollars as a start-up; hiring the staff and dealing with all required permits for the business etc.
Then there are the monthly overheads; rent, salaries and so on.
For whatever reason, if you don’t open your business for a few days, then your earnings for those days could be $0.00.
It means, your brick and mortar business needs your constant attention.
How do you make money online and how easy it is?
There are many ways to earn money online.
Maybe you have already tried a few and failed. This is because the people who give you the solution conveniently hide the most important ingredient to make your online business a success.
And that is attracting potential customers to your business.
Most often the schemes people offer to make money come up with ways of attracting people to your site with some easy to do, sneaky SEO and Backlinks and stuff like that.
But always remember one thing. Google and other search engines are too smart for ordinary people like us. If you try some fancy cheats to go to the top of the search results, within no time the search engines will know it and will penalize you.
How to attract potential customer to your online business?
You do this by providing valuable information to your visitors. That’s all you need to do!
Don’t you believe it?
I will show you this is possible.
You do a search for a topic on Google. Any rarely used words like “philanthropy, rendezvous, subliminal” or common words like “coffee, water, food” or whatever that comes to you will do.
Check the results page and see if you are seeing any similarity in the search results? See if any particular website is appearing in all the searches?
99.99% You will see one particular site appears in the first page of Google.
And that’s Wikipedia!
Check who is promoting Wikipedia?
No one is promoting Wikipedia. Yet it appears on the front page on almost every search.
This is because Google and other search engines know that Wikipedia is all about information. They love it. And they bring Wikipedia to the first page of their search results.
And being on the first page, Wikipedia has millions of visitors daily.
And despite Google’s many changes in the search algorithm, Wikipedia ranking never affected.
We will Learn from Wikipedia. We will provide valuable information to attract visitors to your online business!
You are never going to get the same amount of traffic that Wikipedia is getting. But you will get enough traffic for your site to generate an income from your site.
So, Concentrate on providing valuable information on your blog and your site will definitely come to the top and attract tons of visitors.
This does not mean that you totally ignore Keywords. You must definitely come up with good keywords.
But, for that, don’t spend any of your hard-earned money to buy any keyword or backlink promotion tools.
So the question is, without these tools, how you will find good keywords for your articles?
There are many free and easy ways to check for popular keywords. See this free video here for an understanding.
How to create a blog for your online business?
The structure of your online business blog will be as follows:
Find a “niche” that you are passionate about. Then….
- You build a blog. You will be updating the blog with new articles on a weekly basis.
- This blog is going to be an “authority” in the niche you selected. This means you are going to develop your blog into a highly valuable resource for information about the selected niche.
- This blog is not going to list or sell any products.
- By posting unique and valuable information on your blog, you will be able to bring potential customers to your site. In other words, you will generate “traffic” to your site for free via search engines.
- Some articles on your blog will contain links to other websites selling products. By partnering up or affiliating yourselves with these websites or companies and directing traffic to their site, you will earn commission for each product sold. (How to find companies to partner with will be discussed in future posts.)
You will not force your visitors to make a purchase. Instead, you will provide them valuable information and help them make a more informed buying decision by himself.
Does the whole process of running your online business sound easy?
It is both Yes and No!
You can compare your start-up business with a plane on the runway.
For a plane to take off from the runway, it must burn the most fuel to generate the necessary thrust. Without which the plane will stay on the runway forever.
But once airborne, then the plane will cruise burning less fuel.
The same goes with your online business. In its starting phase, it needs all your care and attention for it to take off and start generating income. Without which your business will always remain where you started.
But once your business start generating income, then it will almost always run on autopilot.
Why this comparison of an airplane take off?
Because we all live in a “Culture of Now”. Many so-called Internet Guru’s will try to sell you plans that will generate instant four digit income from day one.
Don’t fall for these. The money will come, but you must do your part first to take your business off the ground.
And once your online business start to generate income, you will forget all the trouble you took to reach this point. You will start to enjoy the pure joy of making an income all the time, even while you sleep.
