The reason I'm making a Blog called “How To Start a Business Online With No Money MYTH” is because I get asked this question all the time. I feel like I'm living in a ground hog day scenario. So many people see that there is a future in using the internet as a resource for starting a business. They would be right. I have utilized the web for growing a business and I've done it with five simple strategies. I will share that with you now.
Find a Mentor
I have mentioned this before and it's worth saying again because it's so strange to me how someone will decide that they can start a business online and they use the same logic as if they run an off line business. What do I mean. Well this is a typical scenario and one that I've heard all the time.
They try to get a website and then put loads of products on it from Amazon or Clickbank then they go to a company and ask them to send thousands of people to their website. Then they sit back and wait for the money to pour in. Does that sound like what you should do? If it does then you making one of the biggest mistakes in online business. I'm not saying that a website or web traffic isn't right. I'm just saying. It doesn't really work that way. It may have work when the Internet was new but people are a lot more skeptical now and most people just go to Amazon or ebay directly.
This pert of the reason you need a Mentor. They have been in your shoes and they know the mistakes. It's far better to follow a person who has done this before instead of reinventing the wheel.
Spend Time on Your Business
If you want to build a business, weather it be off line or online, you need to put time into it. I'm not talking about an hour here and an hour there. I'm talking real time. When I got started with online work I spent countless time figuring out the online gig. I do mean like at least 4 hours a day. Even while I was working Full Time. Even 2 hours a day is fine. As long as you are 100% consistent. The key is to keep working at it. This is a MUST. There are no short cuts to making a business work online.
Invest Money In Your Business.
For some reason every time I mention this to people I get resistance. Heaven only know why.. If a person was to open a shop in a mall. Would they be shocked if they were changed rent. Off course not. Why because you running a business. So even before you've made a profit you need to cover rent. Sometimes I get a little upset at Online Marketers that give the impression that you can start earning money on the net for nothing. This is simply a lie. You always pay. You need a computer – that costs money. You need Internet – that cost money. You need a website/Blog – that costs money. You need an Auto-Responder – that costs money. You need Training – that costs money. STOP thinking that it's FREE. It's definitely cheaper. But it's NOT free.
Also, if you think it's a quick money making gig. Think again. You need to understand the mechanics of Marketing first and that may take a few months, then you need to build up content. All this takes time. Do not for one moment think it's easy. It CAN be done but it needs work like anything worth while in this world.
You Need To Be Part of a Community
If I had what I have now. A huge community of people who all want the same thing. Learning how to grow our business' online. I would would have become financially Independent for easier. The problem with most people starting out is that their “community” and we all have one. We just sometimes have a very unhelpful one. Like our co-workers or family members who constantly berate you or tell you to get a real job.
This causes problems for people like us who want to become a an Online Business Owner.That's why it is supe important to get into a Mastermind of people who's sol purpose is to help, encourage,teach and have an environment that is conducive to entrepreneurs. This is why I started a Workshop Warriors Institute. We meet every Saturday at 8 pm EST for hours to help each other out.
Use Systems That Work
If you want to be a body builder you need to get the right things. Go to a Gym, become a member, Have a schedule, Sleep, take the right amount of calories, burn fat, enter contests. There are things you need to have. Now you could try and figure this all out yourself but by the time you do, you will have aged and become very disheartened. You could bunch the wrong weights, eat wrong and really mess up you routine.
This is why you need the right Systems in place so you can get the work done properly. In Marketing online you need the right tools, the right training and the right mindset to become successful. This is fundamentally important to a beginner or even a person who has been dabbling in this industry. Having the right Website/Blog and the right type of Auto-Responder is just a small part of getting the right tools. There are so many other systems you need. When I talk about systems I mean programs that have been tested and tried to work. This includes the right type of training to getting a great Capture Page. This is part of the reason we need Mentors
