In everything I read the internet gurus kept telling me that I needed money to make money. Let me tell you that you do need a small amount of money but not much. For under $40 I have built a very successful online business and my website is ranked No 1 on Google for psychic jobs and business and, No 3 for psychic business development. All my others sites are in the top 20 and Im working on getting them to the first page. They are all making me a healthy living. Not bad for a newbie!
Although my business is focused on the psychic industry the principles apply to any business idea and I have proved that by working with family, friends and now some of you to set up online businesses in a range of areas.
I did all of this using mainly free resources after I had learnt about the basics niche markets, websites and webpage design, creating my own products and online marketing. I knew nothing about the internet and even less about building websites and web-pages.
I ha a good idea what business area I wanted to focus on psychic and spiritual matters. I also knew that the psychic business industry was booming. From earlier research I also knew that there was a lack of good quality information for those seeking psychic answers. The next question then was where do I start to build an online psychic business?
Where do you start? Well that answer is easy – let me tell you in brief the 5 steps I took.
Step 1 – Determine what you want to sell or promote is there a market for what you want to offer? Are people buying things and what are they buying? How much competition is there? If there are more that 1million businesses listed you will need to learn a lot more before you move into this market. Refine your search. For example, psychic is too wide a term so being more specific I drilled down to psychic development and psychic ability.
I started to develop my own psychic online business focusing on the more specific terms and then I started to look at what was offered by others in the market. I found there were lots of gaps and the quality of what was on offer wasnt very good. I reviewed a whole range of psychic products and services in order to get to this point.
Step 2 It struck me if there were some good products out there how could I compete with them. Then I found affiliate marketing. I could sell the good products I had found and they would pay me to do it. So I turned my reviews into sales pitches only promoting products I was happy with.
Step 3 Websites and webpages were a mystery to me and then I learnt about them. I thought I would need to know web language in order to build an online business but soon realised that I didnt need to and there are lots of free and effective ways of building website and web pages. Once I got the bug I built a whole range of website and web-pages and now I can do this in less than 3 hours.
Making my site interesting for visitors I thought was going to be a challenge and then I found my Google treasures. I found all sorts of fun, interesting and informative things to build up my sites and as I searched I found more and more.
Step 4- Encouraging people to my site was always going to be a challenge- nobody was aware of me and I had a fair amount of competition. I need to learn how to get onto the first 2 pages of Google and I did. The proof is there for you to see. I found the formula after reading and trying different methods. I use article marketing, links, blogs and social marketing to get me there.
Step 5 I had always wanted to write my own book and never ever thought it would happen but they say knowledge is power and now I know how I have been developing my own products and they have been selling fast. I made my first sale within 7 hours of my site going live.
Ive made it work with my 5 step process and used mainly free online resources to get me here. I found that there was free information, free site content and free ways to generate traffic to my site and I have used them very successfully. I also found very cheap ways of doing things where I had no choice but to pay.
You can build a successful online business with some knowledge and a small amount of investment.
