Building Block #1

Keep in mind first and foremost that Internet businesses, like any other business, is sales and marketing based.   You have to have something to sell.   You need to market and advertise for buyers.

If marketing and selling are not in your blood, you need to move in that direction

Selling on the Internet is not a slam dunk.   Even if you have a good product, the competition is fairly stiff.   Just look at eBay and everyone trying to sell the same thing.

Recognize the need for something to sell as one of the most basic building blocks of starting an online business.   The “something” could be your product,  or it could be someone elses that you’ve paid rights for selling it.    It could be less tangible services such as website design, scrapbooking or consulting.    It could be information that you’re smart on from a hobby or personal experience.

Building Block #1 (continued)

Having said what I did in the first part of this building block, let’s cut to the chase. I know you’re probably chomping at the bit to get started and don’t want to read thru reams of advice.   I know from experience you’ll be coming back for more advice, but the important thing here is to get going, get your feet wet, appreciate what goes into this effort, and develop your discipline and patience.

The last two are going to be what it takes to take your idea and run with it  ie.  turn it into a website, that eventually makes money for you.

So, where to from here ?

Building Block 2 !

Building Block #2

This is as simple as it gets, and what may appeal to you even more, has no out of pocket cost.

Blogging thru Google.com

Like anything else, you will need to “get into it”, learn how it works, and how to do better.   But in one big step for mankind and yourself, you’ll be published and more importantly visible, with an opportunity for ads being put on your blog website.

Blogging will provide invaluable experience as you try different things and formats, with no worry about cost consequences or making a mistake.   You don’t have to get it totally right or perfect the first time.

(Don’t forget to bookmark or add this website to your favorites !   You’ll want to come back here for more good advice.)

Ready to go ?

Go to google.com and click on “Sign In”.    Once you do that, you will be prompted to create a Google account if you don’t have one.

Log into your new account, and click on “My Account”.   Listed under “My services” is “Blogger”, which is what you want to click on.

Right there in the middle of the next screen you should see “Create Your Own Blog Now”.   Click on that and you’re on your way.

Help and tutorial resources are at blogger.com which you can access directly, but it’s probably less confusing if you log into your google.com account first (Google bought blogger.com).

(If this is the first time you’ve opened a Google account, you’ll notice a whole new world will open up for you.   A free email account and other services.    Click “More >>” under “Try something new” on your “My Account” home page, and you will see what I’m talking about ! ! )

Your focus should be on blogging for now. <grin> Don’t get ahead of yourself, but do read “Adsense” under “Try something new”.   It will give you a sense of what you’re trying to achieve in the long run with a quality blog that attracts readers and advertising.

One last point before closing out this building block :  re-read building block #1 about your main goal of having your own product.    In developing your Google blog, focus on your own theme and content quality.    That has to come first and will serve you in the long run as you attract readers and advertising to your site.

Patience.  Discipline.   Hard work.   Success.

Building Block #3

Once you’ve gotten into the rhythm of blogging at Google, there several paths you can take towards your goal of building a money system.    Some people call that “monetizing” your blog or website.

If you’re not ready to branch out on your own with your own domain and hosting, you can move in that direction by signing up for Adsense thru your Google account.   That will engage Google to place related or non-related ads on your site for which you get paid when someone clicks on an ad while visiting your site.

Or if you need some no-cost hand holding, trying Wealthy Affiliates as a money system builder.

To this point, there’s no cost to you, other than your invested time.

Website fundamentals and the building of your money system(s) continue to be :

  • original quality content,
  • that is of interest to a niche market,
  • and that is optimized for search engines and visibility

The monetization can logically follow.
