A Dollar In Your Pocket And A Dream
That?s the least you need to start your own online business. Well, that?s what I started with and it doesn?t have to be different with you.
In today?s Information Age, we are bless to have such wonderful opportunities right at our fingertips. A brick and mortar business can cost you thousands of dollars to get off the ground, where as an online business can cost you zero dollars to start.
There are many companies that you can sign up and sell their products and services for a commission. They provide marketing tools, tracking software and product links all free of cost to you. You can then market for free through classified ads, articles and forums.
At sometime you will realize that you will need to invest some money in your online business to help speed up it?s growth. As they say there is no free lunch, because all these stuff are available for free that does not means your success is also free. Your dollars will be well spent and will give you a more professional appearance.
For example, I know webmasters that purchase domain names just to market their affiliate products. I have seen people like Willie Crawford published an article with a web link embedded in it which redirects you to TheRichJerk.com. This is clearly an affiliate link presented in a professional format. And that domain may have cost Mr. Crawford just a few bucks.
Sorry if I have let any cat out of the bag but that?s the way these people are making things happen. Here in my homeland of Jamaica, many are bewildered when I show them how easy it can be for them to start their own online business.
They are even more startled when they learn that they can set up a free website through Geocities or a free blog with Blogger and create a source of income. They can place pay per click ads or affiliate links on them and make some mail box money.
With economies around the world so unstable, it is imperative that you seek to create a stable source or multiple sources of income. And in today?s world the easiest way to do so is with your own online business. All you need to start is a dollar in your pocket and a dream.
