Are you one of the millions of people who would like to start a free internet business? If you are then you have come to the right place. Today we will outline the steps to getting your free internet business off the ground.
Step 1 – The Website
If you have ever visited some of the free web hosting services I am sure you were completely unimpressed. They are a great place for some things but their limited bandwidth, lack of control panel, and lack of storage are not the place to start your free internet business.
To start your free internet business you need to go to one of the free blogging sites. Yes they have some of the limitations of the free web hosts but this will only be temporary. One your free internet business takes off and you are making some real cash you can switch to a paid web host and move your blog there under its own domain name. There are a great many sites on the net that you could use but the big ones are WordPress and Blogger.
Before you set up your blog you need to have a firm niche in mind and gear the blog to that niche. After all if your niche is about pet care I am sure not many people would be interested in your John Deere tractor. Keep it to the point of the blog. If you want to talk about other things then start a new blog for them.
Step 2 – The Product(s)
You do not need your own product to start a free internet business. You can get all the products that you will ever need by joining an affiliate network such as ClickBank, Pay Dot Com, or Commission Junction.
Step 3 – Advertising
Your free internet business has a blog and products, now it needs to be promoted through advertising. Since we are doing this on a zero dollar budget we will avoid paid advertising all together. The easiest and most cost effective way to promote your free internet business is through article marketing. It is simple, easy, and very effective. All you have to do is write at least three short 300 – 350 word articles per day about your niche and submit them to EzineArticles. EzineArticles is the biggest and best free article directory on the internet.
Make sure that you read their policy on what can and cannot be done. For instance you cannot directly link to an affiliate product website. You do not have to worry about that since you will be directing your readers to your blog. Make sure that you create a compelling Author’s Resource Box to direct your readers to your blog and thus your product line.
Step 4 – Putting It All Together
Your free internet business is ready to rock all you have to do is put the pieces together. This is how it works. Your advertising sends traffic to your blog which in turn entertains them with posts about the niche you are working in. In these posts you place links to the affiliate products that you have chosen. The reader visits the affiliate link and if they purchase you are paid a commission through the affiliate network you have chosen.
Honestly gang, it really is that simple. If you are not excited about the prospect of starting a free internet business then it’s not for you. If you are excited quit reading now and get out there and get started.
