Here is your chance to learn a plan for starting your own online business in 6 steps. Lets’ get started!
Step #1: Ask yourself these questions, what am I passionate about? What do I like to do for fun? What do I know a lot about? This is the starting point for you creating your own business. The key is doing something that you like. People who do things that they like make the most money when it comes to starting your own business. Once you have answered these questions and decide which direction that you are ready to go in, then it is time to go to the next step.
Step #2: You need to research the area that you have chosen so that you can narrow it down to a market, a niche market that has lots of people who are interested in your passion. You now need to think of this as a problem and solution game. You are looking for people that have a problem within your given niche market and you are going to be the one that gives them a solution. You will need to use Google’s free keyword search tool to find these people. Take the main topic keywords and use the tool to narrow down your focus to a group of people that will be searching for your solution.
Step #3: Once you have found a niche market of people, you want to either use someone else’s product or you can create your own product. If you are looking to create your own product, one good way is to write an eBook or short report giving information about the solution to the problem that people are looking for. You can find a lot of free information on how to write short reports or ebooks if you look on YouTube.com. If you want to use someone else’s product then you can go to ClickBank.com to find a product to sell. They have thousands to choose from there. Just make sure that you choose a commission of 50% or more so you can make a good profit.
Step #4: In this step you want to create a brand for yourself, a website and a squeeze page. Depending on what direction you take for your product will determine if you will need 2 or 3 of these items. If you choose to sell someone else’s product, you will only need 2 of them. You will need a domain name and a squeeze page. If you create your own product, you will need a domain name, squeeze page, and website.
Step #5: You need to set up an autoresponder and create a series of messages to send to your prospects and buyers. In this set you will choose an autoresponder to collect names and email address. You can find some free services to use or choose a paid one. Go to Google.com and do a search for autoresponders to find a free or paid service to choose from. Next, you will want to create a series of emails that you will send out to your prospects and people that buy your product. You will build rapport with your prospects to gain a sale and promote other similar products to your buyers.
Step #6: This is a very important step. Here you will need to drive traffic to your squeeze page. One of the best ways to drive traffic to your website is to sit down and write articles to submit to article directories. This will help you build your brand and create one-way backlinks to your website. If you have money to spend, then you might want to consider PPC campaigns with Google.com to get instant traffic to your website. I will warn you that you can lose a lot of money fast if you don’t know what you are doing.
Now you have a plan of action that can set you free from your 9 to 5 job. You can finally get rid of that evil person that has been tormenting you every-day on the job that you hate.
