Yes, you really can get your own Internet business
started in just a few weeks. It's a lot simpler than you might think.
Before I go any further, I want to make it clear
that I am not talking about shady "get rich quick" schemes or
questionable biz-opps or low-paying "work at home" plans. I'm
also not talking about selling other people's products through
drop-shipping or affiliate programs.
I'm talking about you selling your own products,
that you create. I'm talking about a real business, with real products
that you can be proud of. And a real potential for significant long-term
I can't say. I don't know you personally. The real
question to ask yourself is, how much do you want, and how badly do
you want it?
I have friends who only put in a few hours and
make a few hundred extra each month. They see it as a fun and easy way
to add to their retirement investments. I know people who make thousands
a month. And I know other people who make tens of thousands a
None of them are what you'd call a genius, or
gifted in any way. It seems to me that the more 'normal' you are, the
more money you can make.
All of it online. And almost without exception,
every single person I've ever met who made a serious income online
started with one of the ideas you're about to learn.
What you make personally depends on you, your
goals and your willingness to do a little creative thinking. I can tell
you that the amount of work involved is probably a lot less than you
think right now.
I'm not going to give you fairy stories here,
though. Some people will try this and fail. It happens. They don't
listen, or they get stuck on one idea and refuse to try something else
when it's clear the first one won't work.
Worse, they try to create something that no-one
else in the whole world cares about. Instead of adjusting their approach
and giving people what they already want, these folks try and
"educate the market."
Be warned: Even the most experienced and
well-funded marketers won't touch that sort of thing. People want what
they want, and they don't want someone telling them what they should want. Especially when that someone just happens to be selling it...
Other than just not trying, the single biggest
cause of failure in online business is trying to sell something no-one
If you can keep that one thing in mind, your odds
of making a lot of money online just went way up.
If It's Such A Simple Thing,
Why Don't More People Do It?
The majority don't do it because they don't try.
They don't try because they think it's too
complicated, or it will take too long, or it will be too expensive to
get started or they don't know enough about business or or or...
But is any of that true? Surely it takes a big
investment to get started?
Assuming you already have an Internet connection,
you can start an online business with no cash expense outside of a
domain ($8.88 at namecheap.com) and a very basic web host ($39 at
Less than $50 a year for everything you need to
And that's assuming you don't just sell on eBay
and skip the whole website thing entirely...
What about software? Isn't that expensive?
Some is, sure. But you can get everything you need
to create very high-quality products for free. Everything from powerful
graphics software to a professional-level office package and all the
It's got to be complicated!
Can you type? I don't mean fast, just... can you
It can be more complicated than that, but it
doesn't have to be.
I know people who worked at a business 12 hours
a day for years and never made any money. I can't afford that kind of
That's not a business. That's a job.
Let's say you decide you want to write a small
manual on how to do something. Say, 30 pages. You can type that up in a
week, working an hour or two each evening.
Then you type up a page telling people what
they'll get from your manual and how much it costs. That's your sales
You now have the first product for your business.
But what about getting paid and getting the
product to my customers?
Here's how that works. You create a web page for
your sales letter. Something like the one you're reading right now. You
put in a link to PayPal or whoever you're using to handle the money.
You can get the software to make those web pages
When people decide to buy, they click the link and
give PayPal the money. PayPal sends them to another page that you've set
up where they can download your product without you ever having to
handle it. PayPal takes their cut and puts the rest of the money in your
You are now in business.
It really can be that simple.
What If I
Don't Want To Write A Book?
You can do a lot of different things to make money
online. You can:
- Sell how-to books
- Teach people using recorded audio
- Create and sell art or poetry
- Run an editorial "blog"
- Develop your own software
- Market products other people create for you
- Use free teleconference lines to do
- Publish a newsletter
- Run a local entertainment site
- Become a music publisher
... and a lot more. There are tools
and systems available to fit every preference. The Internet gives you
access to people of every professional and personal interest you can
think of. That makes it almost certain that anyone can make a living
online, if they'll just find out what some group wants and offer it to
