Getting started online can be frustrating, unless you take the time to learn everything possible about making money from your home computer. You will want to choose a niche that is right for you, start a blog to establish yourself as someone knowledgeable on your topic, and learn how to market effectively in order to reach as many prospects as possible. All of this will help to ensure that you get off to a running start and never lose momentum. I have a new course, the Perpetual Motion Money Machine, that makes this a simple process.
Choosing a niche involves taking a closer look at what you are passionate about, where your life experience is, and where there are people who are willing and able to spend money on the products you will create, promote, and recommend. I am passionate about helping people learn how to use computers, and would be willing to do that even if I were not being paid. Make a list of the things you love to do, and see what comes up for you. I am also passionate about Yorkshire terriers and other small dogs. The idea is to turn your passions into profits.
Your WordPress blog is the hub of operations for your online business. I describe a blog as being your ‘home on the Internet’. You want to post as often as possible to let people know exactly who you are and what you have to share with them in terms of your knowledge. Our job online is to serve our prospects and clients, so provide them with valuable content and resources to show them you care about their success.
Have fun with the marketing piece of this puzzle. The idea here is to get the word out in as many ways as possible about how your information can be of benefit to others. I like to make a list of my favorite marketing strategies and implement them. It all starts with a post to my blog, followed by an article that can be submitted to the article directories. Then I will use audio, video, press releases, social media, and more to continue to announce what I am doing to the world.
Decide if you will be creating your own products or promoting and recommending others through your affiliate link. If you are just getting started I believe that affiliate marketing is the best, but that is completely up to you. Once you get started you will be unstoppable, so make the decision to get started today.
