Have you ever thought about making some money off the internet but the whole concept of how to start an online business puts you off and you don’t know where to start?
Well the answer is to proceed step by step.
In fact you can start your own online business in five easy steps!
STEP 1. Find your niche
Don’t be put off if you haven’t heard of a niche before.
A niche is simply a group of people with a common interest.
Do you have a hobby?
A special skill?
What are you good at?
What interests you?
Everybody has, or does something that interests them, that they have some knowledge of and passion for. That you can then teach to someone else and build an online business with.
STEP 2. Have a website
Having a website is your online storefront.
In days gone by it was extremely difficult to build your own website with all the code and technicalities.
These days it is so much easier. In fact you can have your own website up with a few simple clicks in a matter of minutes.

STEP 3. Create content
The next step is to start creating content for your site.
This can be done by writing blog posts and creating videos.
A lot of people get put off by this and think they have to be a writer. But just remember you have the interest and knowledge of your topic (or niche) and just communicate the information like you are having a conversation with a friend.
Creating content will then lead to traffic coming to your site from search engines such as google.
Step 4. Getting traffic and ranked in google
The goal is to get traffic to your site by getting ranked on the first page of google.
There are technical ways to do this such as having keywords mixed in with your content, but the main thing to focus on is creating quality content that gives good information and will help people.
Remember that getting traffic and becoming an authority in your niche takes time.
STEP 5. Show me the Money $$$
Once you start getting ranked in google and have traffic coming to your site you will need to sell them something to make some money.
The best way to do this is to be an affiliate marketer and sell something related to your niche.
It is a bit like being a commission salesman. Someone comes to your site, you give them good information, you recommend a product, make a sale and then you receive a slice of the action.
There are literally 10,000’s of affiliate programs with one of the biggest being Amazon as an example, and millions of products to sell!
It is totally possible to earn a full-time income online in any niche and you only need one website!
All you need is the right tools, training and support.
