What you need to get started online as a beginner
You should by now have the idea or trend you want to capitalize online with. What you will need is a website.
Websites are not very complicated. In fact, I built this website with no prior knowledge of websites, HTML, or coding.
I can show you where to get a free website. Click here for instructions on setting up a free website.
Think of your website as a “storefront.” This is where your customers are going to be visiting in order for you to make money. You might be thinking okay but I don’t have anything to sell. Don’t worry I will cover all of that further down in this post.
Your website should be built around your idea. Topics, posts, and pages all related to your idea. The more data you add to your website the more people will visit and the longer they will stay.
You need to have 3 things to your website
- Simple but professional design
- Easy to navigate
- Rapid load speed
If you have those 3 things, your views will love your website and trust you.
Getting people to your “storefront”
This is the most challenging part of building a business online but if you have your idea that you are passionate about and a website, then this is possible to do if you are determined.
Most people are going to find your website from search engines. This is known as search engine optimization (SEO).
Creating pages, posts, pictures, and videos will help your website rank #1 in the search engine results.
Ranking in search engines is done by using keywords. You will need to do a keyword search to understand exactly what people are searching for and then you can help them find your website with a post or page that is related to that given keyword.
Example keyword search “best fitness trackers”
When someone searches this example into Google, you will want to have a post that answers that question. You can create a post that is directly related to that question and answer it.
This is also how you will make money. let me show you how to make money from your idea.
Turn your idea into a profit
The best way for a beginner to start and profit from a business online is with affiliate marketing. You can scale a business upwards after you are making a hefty monthly income. But, getting started with affiliate marketing is a great way to go because it is 100% free to join affiliate programs and you do not need to own the products/services you market.
Amazon has the largest affiliate program online. All you have to do is sign up and with your website, you can market any product sold on Amazon to the viewers of your website. When someone clicks the product on your website and is redirected to Amazon and buys the product, you will receive a commission!
There are a lot of affiliate programs online you can join, so no matter what your interest/passion/hobby is, you can be making money in that niche.
The goal is to get as many visitors to your website as possible.
The more traffic to your website = more opportunity to make a profit.
The more content you add to your website is going to directly affect how much traffic you have coming to your website. More content means more visitors.
