Living life is an expensive hobby and no matter what job you work as, you will never have enough money.
Everyone needs an extra income but not everyone has the time to work or money to spend on investments which leaves you with only one choice of earning income… The Internet!
Why Should You Make Money From The Internet?
Okay this is a pretty boring and straightforward question but you’d be amazed at these facts.
Believe it or not, the internet has grown so powerful and useful today that you can find and do almost anything just from a click of a button.
Here are some cool benefits that will blow you away:
- Flexible timing – You will have more time to yourself.
- NO experience or interviews needed – You are your own boss!
- Save money – You can literally start earning online for free!
- No dress codes – You can work at home in your pajamas for all I care! Or shall I say, for all YOU care!
- You decide your own salary – How much you earn depends on how much effort you want to put in.
- Long-term income – Especially when you’re doing an online business, your money will never stop pouring in!
What is the Best Way to Start Making Money Online?
By having your own online business of course!
Sure there are many ways to earn money online but those methods are not as rewarding as having your own online business.
You can do freelance work online at eLance or Fiverr, or you could even do surveys and get money but those methods do not have potential growth.
Meaning that if you stop doing those, you WON’T get any income.
However if you do your own online business, it will continue to grow and make money in the long run, even when you do not have to care of it any longer.
Steps to Starting Your Own Online Business
Building your own online business may be a bit troublesome to start with as you may need to spend some time preparing but as Abraham Lincoln would say, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
I hope you’re hyped up because here’s 5 steps to take when starting your own online business:
1) Choose a niche, any niche
Like any other business, ask yourself the same question, what business are you planning to do?
We are going to make a website and make money from it so you don’t need to think deep and hard, just the thought of it is enough.
Here’s a tip – Pick something of your interest.
Do you like to cook? Or exercise? How about cooking food to help you exercise?
Regardless, any niche is okay because the internet has endless amounts of users which will be your potential customers.
Have a niche already?
Great! Now you’re ready to…
2) Choose a domain of your liking
A domain is just a fancy name for a website name.
Since we are going to build a website, we need a website name don’t we?
Here’s a tip, DON’T use very long names because you want people to remember your website easier.
Another thing to bear in mind is to NOT use dash symbols.
Here’s an example…
- Cooking-With-Me – NO
- Cookingwithme – YES
Now that you have a website in your head, we are going to try use SiteRubix to see if that name is taken or not.
Type it in here…
If you’re wondering, there are various free website platforms like Weebly and Webs but I recommend Site Rubix because I find it better in terms of performance.
They have a team which monitors your website’s speed and health which is something you will need in the long run.
3) Fill up your website
Have a domain name chosen, we’re almost there!
Building a website is easy, the hard part is filling it up with content.

4) Set up a way to monetize
You have a website, great!
But have you ever thought of how your website is going to make money?
There are many ways on how to monetize those site and some of the easiest way, is by scamming people by cheating them of money which is something I will NEVER teach on my site.
I despise scammers not only because that practice in unethical, but because I too was scammed when I first wanted to learn how to make money online.
In fact, I even took up the initiative and wrote reviews on those products after I successfully set up my website (Click here to see my list of scam reviews).
So what is the most legitimate way to monetize your site then?
By offering something that your website visitors will like such as an ebook!
Here’s a video on how to add ClickBank to your website…
ClickBank is like a marketplace for affiliates to sell a product on their websites.
Of course that product is made by someone else but you get a sweet commission for every sale you get and why I recommend using ClickBank is because it has the highest rating for commission pay which is around 50%-75%!
So browse around ClickBank, find an eBook of your liking that will match what your website is doing, and voilà!
You’re all set to monetize!
5) Bring Traffic to Your Website
Now you have a fully functional website that is able to make money when someone buys a product off it, great!
But have you thought of how you want to attract traffic (Fancy name of website visitors) in the first place?
Simple, by writing more content!
The more content you write about on your website, the more visible your website will be in Google search and that is when you will keep bringing in more traffic.
You can write blog posts regarding your website niche such as “How-To” tutorials and tips because people are attracted to helpful information such as that.
So now you can tell people that you are an Online Entrepreneur!
