So, you want to start your own home online business. That’s great! The internet gives a level starting plain for anyone who has enough gumption to cast off and try their metal. If you have the drive along with patience and perseverance you can build a business online. You must be willing to add to those two qualities knowledge and endurance to be able to accomplish the goals that you desire.
We shall discuss a few things for you to consider and present a couple of the best opportunities for you to succeed in your own online business.
What do you need to start your online business?
You have made a good start because you are reading this article. You must have some knowledge of what is necessary to build your business. Without an underpinning of knowledge you find yourself open to be misled in your quest. From experience, I can tell you that there are plenty of scammers out there who will gladly take advantage of any lack of knowledge that you may have and will take your hard-earned money and in the end leave you with little or nothing. Because I experienced a couple of these, I do not want you to have the same experience. So correct knowledge is a must have when looking to start your online business.
One of the areas of knowledge that you must acquire is what types of programs or pitches to avoid. You can read my article on Online scams to Avoid, HERE.
Things you need and already have
There are some things that you must have to start your business online which you already have. First, you must have some type of computer: desktop, laptop, note pad, smartphone. To a computer device you must add access to the internet. Most laptops and smart devices have built in internet connecting devices. Even desktops have them these days.
Now that you have the computer that has the means to connect to the internet, you must acquire the service by which you connect to the internet. The best way to do that is by purchasing internet service through a cable or satellite service which are readily available. You choose the best for you. It is best, if at all possible, to avoid public WiFi’s for your online business. This will lessen the possibilities of your business being hacked.
Build your knowledge
Now that you have the basics, where can you find the knowledge? Of course, the internet is the best place to go. That is why you are here. You have probably typed “online business opportunities” or “how to start an online business” into Google or Bing and are beginning to learn what is necessary to build your business. You may or may not have considered what type of business you would like to build.
May I encourage you to choose a business type that will include things that you are passionate about. Why? You ask. There are going to be times and phases in your building of your online business that will become repetitive and even boring. If you do not have a real interest, and yes, passion, for the product or service it will become very easy to become discouraged. Therefore, choose something that you love to do or a product that is special to you.
If you choose something you really enjoy you will already have some knowledge, or maybe even great knowledge. Continue to add to that knowledge of your product or service.
Business building knowledge
If you are like I was, you may need additional knowledge in how to build a successful online business. I had been in the residential home building business for 30 years. There came a time to shut the business down and retire. After I retired from the hammer and nail business I found that I was really bored and needed something that was creative and would also bring in a little income. So, like you, I began to look online for business opportunities. The first knowledge I gained was the knowledge that I had very little understanding of how to build an online business. Because of that I got taken advantage of a couple of times. They were costly lessons. But I learned from them and I hope I can share my knowledge with you so that you do not get taken advantage of as I was.
To succeed in an online business you must understand how the business is built. If I were to try to lay out the knowledge that you would need to be successful, this site would be a continuing process. Fortunately, for you and for me, there is a site and a program which has already done and continues to do just that.
This program contains all the knowledge and more that you will need to build and succeed in an online business. It is not built upon ungrounded promises or quick success stories but is built on a bank of knowledge and tools and support that are made available to you through the program.
The best of its kind
The program that I present to you is the best of its kind. You will find a bank of knowledge that is seemingly inexhaustible. Many have been using the system for years to build successful online businesses and are still gaining knowledge through the tools provided through the program. It is a program and system that you cannot outgrow. Since knowledge and tools of the internet are always growing, so are the knowledge and lessons through this program.
Through the support and community of this program you can 24 hour access to answers to your questions or problems that you may encounter in building your online business. There are no guaranteed success scenarios but there is guaranteed support and tools that can help you achieve success if you are willing to apply them.
What is this product?
The product, or program, that I am speaking of is called Wealthy Affiliates. It is a program that was instituted 18 years ago by two friends who are still active in the program. They found the tools necessary to build their own businesses and decided to share those tools with as many people as they could. Today, there are thousands and thousands of people who are taking advantage of all that these friends have learned and shared.
The program is not without cost. Anything of value is worth paying for. This program is really priceless. But they have set a price on a monthly basis for only $49. That is $49 a month. But, just in case you are a little wary, and that is OK, you can try a “FREE” version that is actually free. You do not have to register a credit card. You do need an email address. Try the “FREE” version as long as you wish. You will get 10 free lessons on how to begin to build your online business. You will also receive 2 free websites hosted for free by Wealthy Affiliates. If you decide after the test run you decide to join the Premium Membership, you can then purchase a membership and gain access to limitless learning and possibilities. If you choose not to join the Premium Membership, that’s OK. But, keep your two free websites and do with them as you wish.
If you have read this far you are probably very interested. Let me leave you a chart and a link by which you can compare the Free Membership to the Premium Membership.
I wish you success as you begin to build your own online business.
God bless you and prosper you.
