Before anything else, it is highly important to be familiar with the basics. You need to understand how you’re making money and where your money comes from.

These are usually products that I use myself on a daily basis, and I will always provide a comprehensive product reviews to show you exactly what it is, what it does and how it will help you in starting a online business.

Now back to building your business. Even though starting an online business takes time and effort, working online comes with some quite amazing benefits, and here’s some that I’m sure you will find appealing:

The ground recipe for making money online

There are actually a lot of ways you can make an income online, and the work tasks and tools may vary based on the content and niche that you choose for your business to focus on.

Because this guide is an introduction to the industry and doesn’t focus on a specific type of business or niche, I will show you the ground recipe for building and monetizing your online business, without going into too specific details.

Step 1: Choose your business niche

One of the starting points in making money online is selecting a niche for your business. A niche is basically a specific business theme, or a group of people that you’re targeting with the products and/or services of your business.

For example, if you’ve invented a revolutionary new diet supplement you will try to target an audience in the healthy living niche, or if you have a brand of golf clubs that you’d like to sell, you would try to reach out to someone in the golf niche.

Your niche can be pretty much anything, and whatever you decide for your niche to be, if you produce high quality material and do your job thoroughly, you can make a pretty solid income on basically any niche.

Step 2: Build your business foundation

Imagine yourself that your business is like a skyscraper. The bigger you want your skyscraper to be, the stronger foundation you need, and the basic foundation of any successful online business is their website. Your website is the store window of your business, and the platform that will promote your business to your audience.

There’s so much competition out there that spamming the heck out of Facebook just isn’t enough to achieve success. You need a professional website to build a holding foundation for your online business, and I will teach you everything you need to know on how to build a professional website completely for free.

Step 3: Create high quality content

It speaks for itself that to get paid, you need someone to buy what you’re offering, and people will not buy just anything. To get people’s attention you need quality web page content. You must provide something that others need, and you must show them that you’re serious, and that you will provide them with quality services that’s worth paying for.

Your content can be basically anything, from text, like a blog or a review, to a service, or audio, video, images and so on. Whatever you do, build high quality content and the buyers will come eventually.

Step 4: Bring traffic to your website

You have your foundation, so now you want people to see it. You need traffic for your website. But how do you point people to your direction and make them visit your site? There’s numerous ways to do this, and if you got quality content then it’s actually fairly easy.

– 1. Create high quality content

– 2. Do keyword research and utilize SEO

– 3. Get Google-rankings (which you automatically get for content and SEO)

– 4. Advertise your content

– 5. (optional) Pay for traffic

This is where it starts to get complicated. This stuff might be highly difficult to learn and do on your own. But don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for. This is what I do every day and what makes me a consistent income online.

Just keep on reading and I will teach you everything you need to know, and also give you my “secret weapon” for success. But first, let’s continue and see how you can turn these 4 steps into actual profit.

Monetizing your online business

So you see, the principle is actually quite simple. Website + content + traffic = SUCCESS! 

But now the big question is, how do you turn this into money? There’s numerous ways you can turn your traffic into money, but the basic principle is through promotion and advertising. Online advertising is an insanely huge industry and companies spend more than a HUNDRED BILLION dollars every year on online advertising alone.

Have you ever watched a video on Youtube and got annoyed by the commercial video that pops up right before your video starts? If you click one of those, you will get redirected to that company’s website. Companies actually pay a lot of money for those ads, and the more people that click it, the more they pay. They pay for the traffic.

That way Traffic = Money.

So what is it that gives Youtube all it’s traffic?
Their content, the videos of course.
Every time you or others watch a video there, you increase their traffic.

So that way Content = Traffic. get it?

Content = Traffic = Money

Companies need website traffic to sell their products, and many companies will pay you a significant fee to redirect your traffic to them. This spares them for expensive advertising costs and you will earn yourself a nice commission for it. If your website is getting traffic, it’s fairly easy to redirect your traffic to someone that’ll pay good money for it.
