The How And What Of Starting An Online Business

When Starting Out'At The Starting Line'

It struck me the other day that there can be so much DISTANCE between online entrepreneurs from the budding kind with no experience and just starting out, to the SEASONED kind with more time and experience under their belts. One kind is just starting out and the other has already accomplished. The HOW AND WHAT of starting an online business can be a long arduous road when it needn’t be.

Sheer Volume Of Information

While the desire to forge ahead with an idea can be found in both types of entrepreneurs, would-be entrepreneurs just starting out may be daunted and even put off from sheer lack of knowing where to start, or by the sheer volume of information. But it NEEDN’T be this way at all when you know where to look.

A Revolutionary Start

The other kind of online entrepreneur however, the ones that are already EARNING an income from their online ventures, have already discovered how to do it PROPERLY and therefore, SUCCESSFULLY. Although some may have had to discover everything themselves from scratch, similar to what’s described above, the modern day online entrepreneur has discovered the REVOLUTIONARY way to get started.

A Few Clicks Away

'A Click Away'

So many hours were spent researching the best TOOLS, the best hosting platforms, the best online TRAINING and searching the internet high and low for this, that and the other. Then more hours putting it together hoping and praying that it all comes together. Sometimes years were spent doing this before you could get anything off the ground, let alone earning an income. Now it’s literally DONE with a few CLICKS.

Top Class Training And Support

Like everything, things get better with time. Thank goodness for that. Some PLATFORMS such as WEALTHY AFFILIATE are so sophisticated that truly anyone who can take instruction can start an online business today. The technology is so advanced that you can be earning in just a few weeks, as is the case for many. But it should also come with great TRAINING & SUPPORT.

Go Directly To The Source

However, anyone who has spent any time researching for the internet to find answers to your questions will agree that for a lot of the time, it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack… a very big haystack. What’s useful and what’s not. What’s legit and what’s not. What’s a scam and what’s not. But when you can’t even distinguish between these things,… then what? What are you suppose to do? It’s simple. Go directly to the source.

Be Shown Exactly How It Is Done

It’s another thing to figure out what will be useful for you and what will just eat up your time for NO-GOOD-REASON. I’m here to tell you that you will get nowhere fast. You might even lose a lot of money in the process. Forget the drudgery of trying to go it alone. There are literary hundreds of thousands of web-based business owners, very successful in the field of online business, who are available RIGHT NOW to show you how it is all done.

Long And Slow OR Quick And Easy?

Long and Slow. Well usually, you start trying things out for a while perhaps buying this and that along the way. More time spent working out what works and what doesn’t. The result for MOST is information overload… head spinning… mind mashing mush. Usually leaving the entrepreneur stunned and even wounded, not knowing which way to run, OR WORSE, giving up. Quick and Easy is the only way.

Everything At Your Fingertips

It takes an enormous amount of energy to collate information one gathers from the internet, and then try to organize it in a way that makes sense and helps you to figure out how you are going to tackle it. At this stage, you probably will still not have any idea if your plan is going to work or not. What you need is everything at your fingertips.

Leave The Wilderness Behind

The good news is that it is not necessary to carry on IN THE WILDERNESS like this anymore. Join a PLATFORM that will train you, STEP-BY-STEP, give you all the ins-and-outs on how to build an online business from scratch. Giving you all that you need all in the one place, and lets you learn at your own pace and is available 24/7. These are the good ones anyway. There are those that APPEAR to provide everything you need, who promise you all and deliver nothing. Be CAREFUL of these ones.

No More Wild Goose Chase'Lost Plane'

If you are still looking to see how it is all done, and have been on a WILD-GOOSE-CHASE for months or years, and still not any closer to achieving your online dreams then STOP for a moment and take a breath. Think about the best way to do this. GET HELP from those that have already done it.

Read Reviews Before Choosing A Platform

READ PLENTY OF REVIEWS before starting out. Get started at the top of this page. Not all things are equal and therefore read lots of product reviews. Don’t just go for the first thing, even if it turns out that this is the one that will give you the MOST success. The most effective and efficient way to get going is to be shown the PROPER WAY to do it.

Avoid Paying Anything Upfront

Check out all of the PLATFORM REVIEWS and ask loads of questions. READ at least five reviews if not more before you finally decide on the one for you. Be WARY of the ones that ask you up front for money. It is not necessary to pay before you get started.

Be Prepared To Put The Work In

When you do decide what platform will give you the MOST VALUE for what they have to offer, then dedicate at least 2 hours a day to start with, training, learning and building out your online business.

  1. Great post, i myself have been with wealthy affiliate for almost a year now, at first i was hesitant because i didnt have the slightest idea of what it takes to build an online business, but the training here is in depth with videos that you can watch at your own pace how ever many times that you want so that you can fully grasp how online business works. Not only that, the community of people here are always helping each other. So if you ever run into a problem, just reach out and someone will help provide you with a solution.

    • Thank you Bryan for stopping in. Your comments are encouraging especially for those who might be hesitant to get started because they might feel they have’nt the support. But in a community like Wealthy Affiliate there is help at hand 24/7 as you say. You don’t even have to know anything about online business or even the technology behind it all! This is what I loved about it when I first set out almost 2 years ago. 

      So, I am sure that when you are open to learning the proper way and you commit a few hours a week to building out your business, there is no doubt you will be successful.

      Regards 🙂

  2. Excellent post, and what you say is true. You can start out and look at seasoned marketers pulling in thousands per month and get discouraged, but what it’s important to realise is that they started where you are now, and it very probably took them months if not years of hard work to get where they are. You won’t replicate this without the same long period of hard work and dedication, and this is where many people balk at the idea of putting so much work in. I believe it’s entirely possible to make good money online but it’s no walk in the park, it requires hard work.

    • Thank you Jack for the great advice! It is as you say! Luckily, all the hard work will be rewarded. For some, it might take a few weeks to make your first sale which is entirely possible, but then things can really ramp up especially when you are shown how properly. Anyone can reach the earning heights of the seasoned marketers when they are shown how and are willing to put the work in.

      Regards 🙂

  3. Great Informative Post,
    Wealthy Affiliate helps break down a number of the barriers that many see as reasons why they don’t get started.
    The training is easy to follow with easy step-by-step guides that help anyone start an online business. It always helps that there are plenty of people out there to help you within the community too.
    Thanks for the post

    • Hiya John!

      It makes the journey doable when barriers are broken down as you say. People from all walks of life,  backgrounds and experience are having great success in Wealthy Affiliate. Feedback from it’s members is a testament to that.  

      Thanks John for taking the time to call by.

      Regards 🙂

  4. I really enjoyed reading your post. You’re right! Wealthy Affiliate is a program like no other. I have been at Wealthy Affiliate since March 21, 2018 and I must say it has been a wonderful experience on up until now. I thought it was amazing to finally come across a platform that helps affiliate marketers both newbies and experienced marketers earn real money alongside attending some really amazing training. Affordable as well.

    • Hi Courtney, thanks for stopping by. Great to hear that you are enjoying your Wealthy Affiliate experience. There seem to be a lot of people like you who have positive comments about their experiences there. 

      But lets be sure that the proof is in generating revenue from an online business and if this is where the training is leading you too then that’s the ultimate, isn’t it.

      Wishing you continued success Courtney.

      Regards 🙂 

  5. Hi Thank you for a very informative Post. I have been with WA now for just on three month and must admit that there is a lot of valuable information to get you started at wealthy Affiliate whis is great. I have been searching for a platform such as this for three years the only thing though you you could spend so much time going through all the training and not enough time actually doing what you are learning and when you come down to the doing part you have forgotten what you learned in the beginning of the training and have to go back to the beginning thankfully you can due to all the great videos inplace on Wealthy Affiliate and the fact that you can ask questions there is always someone to answer you. This is a great post thank you.

    • Hiya Elizabeth!

      So you are new to Wealthy Affiliate, that’s great! There is indeed all the training you need in WA and it can be overwhelming to anyone just starting out. I would advise you to just take one step at a time and not to rush ahead until you have completed each task. Take it from me, it will stop alot of back-tracking. Just take your time, because missing a step could costs you time later on…you know…like having to repeat watch the training videos.

      The recorded training videos are essential and are there for that reason though, and are an essential resource.

      Well, I wish you all the best with your web-based business ventures in WA, and you will definately achieve what you set out to do.

      Regards 🙂

  6. I wish I had come come across your article sooner Rina, 

    being prepared to put in the work is easily the most important thing every beginner should know in my opinion. When I first started, I was scammed by those internet gurus. They told me that making money is as easy as pushing a button so if it’s hard, it’s not a business. I believed it and I was scammed for life because I thought that online businesses are supposed to be easy and there’s always a shortcut to it. I was wrong and wasted 2 years of my life living in denial.

    • Hi Riaz

      It can happen to the best of us unfortunately. Some scammers are harder to detect wasting you lots of time and money as you say. It’s easy to be scarred for life as a result, but there is hope and plenty of people have gone on to build a successful business online when they are shown the proper way. Have you read who my ‘top reviews’ yet? Click the TOP REVIEWS tab on the menu bar at the top of this page.

      Wishing you every success Riaz

      Regards 🙂

  7. What a great post about Wealthy Affiliate.  I am a member and love everything about it.  I don’t make a lot of money yet but I haven’t worked at it hard enough yet either.  It is so cool to be able to talk to other members who are making an online living.  Thank you for taking the time to put all this information together.  I wish you all the best in Wealthy Affiliate.

  8. Hi Rina. A fantastic article. Well constructed and written. 

    I have been with Wealth Affiliate for 3 months now. I Joined because of information I had read just like this. 

    What I have found is the community is very special. They all want to help you succeed. 

    The training is fantastic too.  If you follow it you will be going in the right direction towards where you want to go in your life.

    I recommend this to all wanting to try a new way apart from the 9 to 5 daily grind.  

    Good luck


  9. Hi Rina I have recently signed up to Wealthy Affiliate and in six weeks I have my first website up and running and have 5 posts indexed on google and I’m at the point now where I am learning how to incorporate Affiliate links. The training and library of learning and training here is phenomenal. I signed up to the premium membership within a week as the training alone is worth every penny. Everything you have stated here about the wealthy Affiliate is accurate and if I wasn’t already signed up I would be doing it right now.

    Thanks Emma

    • Hi Emma, it’s great to see you hear and awesome to have your comments! There are few places that come close to matching the value in Wealthy Affiliate in terms of training resources and support. That is why I have ranked it as my number one, and I’m not saying this because I am a WA member, but because it is at the top of its game. People are looking to be successful with a platform that works in terms of the training resources and support from those who know the ropes. They also don’t want to pay the earth for it and this is why Wealthy Affilliate shines, this is not an opinion but a fact!

      So Emma, you are bang on and you are in the right place to have the success you expect…and beyond.

      Great stuff Emma!

      Regards 🙂

  10. Hi and great article. You have covered a really important point in regards to the sheer volume of information that you are hit with when wanting to start your business online. I think anyone who is seriously considering earning money online should read this article as it has some great tips and advice on the best features of a really great platform. Thanks for creating this. Kenny

  11. Hi Rina, great article. I too, have been with WA for a while now and I know how frustrating it can be to see the seasoned affiliate marketers talking about their success when you are just starting out.  But as you say, what you put in is what you reap. Having access to the tools and training in WA has been the key for me personally. Everything you need in one spot. All the best 


    • Hi James!

      It’s always great to get positive comments from a Wealthy Affiliate member. Continue to be consistent with the task based training, and be inspired with the success people are having in WA. They all started by taking one step at a time.

      I wish you every success with your WA journey and if you remain consistent with your time and the training, you will absolutely have success there.

      Regards 🙂
