How to Start Your Online Business

A Step by Step Guide

Price is what you pay, Value is what you get

Price: is the amount of money expected, required, or given in payment for something

Value: is the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, worth, or usefulness of something

Price and value go by the wayside when it is something we want. We’re willing to spend up to $5.00 at Starbucks for a single cup of coffee, Price. We like the taste of that coffee, Value. 

That is lopsided so far to the price side, yet people go everyday and get their cup of Java. Its all a marketing plan that drives people to Starbucks or favorite coffee shop. 

If you really stop and think about it, there are very few people that will stop and weigh price and value when buying something. Some of the instances that we may put some thought into it is buying a new car, buying a house and a few other major purchases. 

When you have the money you will think about it less, but if your on a tight budget, you may collect coupons or drive a few extra miles to a store that offers more discounted prices on things you need.

What would you be willing to pay for:

  • A Netflix subscription per month? $10-20.00/mo?
  • some outdoor furniture (that looks good for 2-3 yrs)? $500.-$1,000.00/mo
  • lawn service per month? $25.-$50.00+/mo
  • Education on internet marketing? $2,500.00

What is the value we would receive? 

  • Get to sit and watch movies/shows
  • Sit in our yards, entertain
  • Not have to do the work ourselves
  • Create an online business producing money

I like to watch movies but I don’t like the fees for a subscription to a cable, dish or satellite system. But they have made it so we have to. No more antennas to get TV for free. They have found a way to charge us for everything, except air. I’m sure there trying to find a way of doing that too.

A table, 4 chairs and an umbrella for $500.00-$1,000.00 so I can sit outside 5-7 months out of the year when I have time is of no value to me. Sure I like the comfort, but I don’t have enough time. Plus when you think about how long it may last before the elements get to it, It’s a luxury, not a necessary.

To have my lawn cut and gardens all edged when I get home from work is nice to see. I like to do my own yard work. Its a good work out since I spend a lot of time sitting when I am working. It benefits my health and is therapeutic.

Some people would say they don’t have the time to do it, I say you don’t have the time because we are paying for all of this and therefore we have to work more to pay for it.

Education on internet marketing is hands down the best value! I can learn to build a website and within a year have it making me $2,500.-$10,000.+/mo. How is that not the best value? Then you can afford to pay someone to cut your lawn.

Now what if that internet marketing education would cost under $400.00? Would that be a good value? There is really no comparison of what you pay and all the value you get.

What would an extra $30,000 per year mean to you?
What about $50,000 or more per year?

Wouldn’t you rather invest in your future and your family’s future than buy that cup of expensive coffee that doesn’t benefit you in the least? Let’s look at some other comparisons so you can understand better.

If you went to a community college and took 1 course, 4 months, books and travel (gas), and we’ll guestimate here, (I hate to do that) but lets say it’s $1,000.00.  You learn how to build a website and learn internet marketing. Now you can go online, find a website host, buy a domain name, and build your online business.

What if you went to an online university and had all the training you needed to build your online business. Not only would you be getting schooled, but you would be building your site as you learn, as part of the class. By the time your done with your education on line, you would have a site that is producing a passive income. Where you take it from there is all up to you. 

What if this online university offered:

  • Live tutorials
  • 24/7 live chat with thousands of other members
  • 13 classrooms on all aspects of building an online business
  • Thousands of members eager to help you
  • Free keyword tool
  • 24/7/365 site support
  • thousands of archived video and written lessons
  • members willing to give feedback on your site  and more…

What is the value of this so far?

Is it worth the same as the community college of $1,000.00? More?

This is where value is so much greater than the price you pay. $359.00 a year. So for about .99 cents a day you could have all this education at your finger tips. You do not have to be to “class on time”. (one exception to that is the live video trainings) although they are recorded and you can access them at any time and as much as you want.

How about if I told you that you could try it for free? 
Before you decide if its worth it, before you spend a dime.

One of your training don’t make sense, jump into the live chat and ask for clarification. Want to know how your doing with your site? Post it and ask for a review and you’ll get 1 or 2 reviews within 30 minutes or less.

Do you know what website host I am talking about?

Before I tell you, let me make something perfectly clear. Building an online business does not happen overnight!!!!! It doesn’t happen in a week! It most likely won’t happen in a month! 90 days of building an online business and seeing no activity is common place. It is during this time that most people give up.

Time and patience is what you need to build a successful and income producing website. You must understand this before you start. 90 days of building and working on a website with no activity is very common. Its during this time that most people give up, and that’s why 90 % of all online business start-up’s fail. [Read More]

Do you need training?

If your new to internet marketing, your going to need information. Your going to need training. Your going to need others around to help at any moment if you get stuck or something doesn’t make sense to you.

Your going to want some feedback on your site as your building it to know if your going in the right direction. Your going to need step by step guidance to get your site set up, add plugins, add google analytics, add social media, add pages of content and your keywords.
