How do I- start an online business Free.
HOW DO I – Start an online business.
Hello, my name is Martin and I live on the Costa Blanca in Spain, in Calpe on
a residencial village called the Colina Club and I am 63 years old.
I have attempted to start my own business online for a few years now but with
no success, I tried a bit of affiliate marketing but have never made a penny.
I live in a beautiful place and get by with part-time gardening and painting work.
This is pretty good and I enjoy doing it but I am thinking ahead to my older age
and would like to support myself with not so much physical work.
With this in mind I have been looking around the internet for something of some
interest and trying to find a way to earn some income.
I came across a free course which goes into a fantastic amount of detail and to be
honest it sounded just like the sort of thing that I was looking for.
O.K so this course consists of 100 lessons which I have started to listen to. Early
in the course there was a mention of blogging and the benefits of having your
own blog .
So here we are at this point--
I have started my own blog explaining some of the things that happen and things
that I learn along the way.
I invite you to come along for the ride and hopefully we can all get some very
useful information and make some money at the same time.
Some examples .-
How do I, market on ebay?
How do I, market physical products?
How do I, become an affiliate marketer?
How do I, work from home?
What is, adsense?
How does MLM work?
Social networking sites ?
Those are just some of the topics covered in the first 4 lessons.
There are 100 lessons.
In the previous lessons we talked about a bunch of different ways of making money online. If you go out looking for those money making opportunities, you’ll find that there are literally thousands of them.
The question now is… How do I separate the real opportunities from the scams? Because we all know that the internet is full of scams, right? So lets talk about it…
I believe that most business opportunities are not scams. But just because something isn’t illegal, that doesn’t mean its something you want to get into.
There ARE a lot of scammers out there though. There is no limit to how far a con artist will go to take your money. So you need to be on your guard.
If it sounds too good to be true, it often is.
Be an educated consumer. (here is a place to start: the FTC)
Don’t buy ANY business opportunities. (unless you honestly know what you’re doing)
1)If you ARE knowledgeable about scams, don’t let down your guard.
2) If you don’t know about the most common Internet scams, do some research and become an educated consumer
3) Put your wallet away
Soon it will be time to choose one business model and focus on it, but before we can do that, we need to talk about two different pathways… and only you can decide which one is best for you. We’ll talk about those two pathways in the next lesson.
Bye for now, Martin.
