Many people think that starting an Internet home business is hard. In fact, there is no business in the world that is faster or easier to launch. If you have 15 minutes and a connection to the Internet, I’ll show you how to launch your own Internet business right away.
Before you launch your first Internet home business, you need to understand the basics. The first step of having a business on the Internet is having your own website. This is the major stumbling block for most people. They think getting a website is expensive or difficult. It’s neither of those things. Actually, it’s free and it’s easy. In fact, let’s go ahead and get your first website setup right now.
To do this I recommend using a free tool called Blogger. Blogger is used for creating blogs on the fly, but a blog is nothing more than a fancy name for a website. To set up your blog website now visit: http://www.Blogger.com
Once you arrive, click the “Create Your Blog Now” button on the page. On the next page enter a user name, password, display name and email address. Then click “Continue”. On the next page enter a blog title and blog address. These can be anything you want. Then enter the word verification code and click “Continue”. On the next page choose a template for your blog (this is what your website will look like) and click “Continue”. Voila… Your blog/website has been created!
Next, click the “Start Posting” button. A new page will appear giving you the option to add content to your new website. Write a title for your page in the “Title” field and then write whatever you want that page of your website to be about in the larger data entry field below the “Title” field on that page. You can use the tools on that page to change your fonts, make links, format your text, add pictures, etc. When you’re happy with what you’ve entered into the page, click the “Publish Post” button. You just created a new page on your website! On the next page displayed, you’ll see a link that says: “View Blog”. Click that link and you’ll see your website live on the Internet. Pretty easy, right?! Now you can wash, rinse, repeat and create as many new pages on your website as you want.
But let’s turn your website into a business first. After all, websites are a lot more fun once they are making money for you.
Get back into your Blogger account and click the “Template” tab. Then click the “AdSense” link near the top of the page. AdSense is a simple but powerful program that allows you to earn advertising revenue from your website. Follow the easy instructions on that page to launch your AdSense account instantly. On the next page click the “Save” button to save AdSense into your website. Then on the next page click the “Republish” button. Your website will instantly be rebuilt now showing a Google AdSense ad at the top of each page on your website. Every time someone visits your website and clicks one of those ads, you earn money from AdSense. You now have a money-making business setup on the Internet. How long did that take? 15 minutes!
The only thing you need to do now to start the cash flowing in is get people to visit your new website. One way to do this would be to tell your friends and family about your site. Here are two more easy things you can do to drive an unstoppable flow of traffic to your new website:
Traffic Strategy 1: Tell all the major blog directories about your new blog/website. To do this, visit http://www.PingoMatic.com and enter your blog name, blog URL (that’s the link to your website generated by Blogger), check all the boxes on that page and click the “Send Pings” button. This will tell all the blog directories about your new blog/website and you’ll start getting some traffic from interested visitors to those directories. Do this each time you add a new page to your blog.
Traffic Strategy 2: Go back to your blog URL/home page and click the “Next Blog” button at the top of the page. This will take you to another blog of another Blogger user. Read through a post or two on that person’s blog and look for a link that says “Comments” and click it. On the next page you’ll be able to type your comments and a link back to your blog inside a form. Once you’ve added your comments, click the “Login and Publish” button; and a link to your site along with your comments will be added to that blog. Repeat this process as many times as you want with other blog websites. This will “link you in” to a network of sites all over the Internet helping you drive a steady stream of traffic to your blog.
Blogger is a great tool to launch your Internet home business, but it’s not the only tool you should be using. To build a solid Internet home business that you can rely on, you need to register your own domain name and website hosting account. A domain name is your unique home on the web that you own and control. Example: domain names are yahoo.com, ebay.com, google.com, etc.
You could either register your own name as a domain or a keyword of something related to the topic of your business. Either way, if you are going to have a legitimate long-term home business on the Internet, a domain name and website hosting account are required. When choosing a domain name and hosting account, it’s important to select a company that has a track record for success. The company I host all my websites with is at: http://www.PlugInProfitHost.com
This top-rated website hosting company also provides several turn-key Internet home businesses called “Plug-In Profit Sites” such as the one described at: http://www.PlugInProfitSite.biz which is a very popular and easy way to start earning multiple streams of income on the Internet. In fact, in addition to the blog you launched a few moments ago, you can get a Plug-In Profit Site setup in the next 24 hours for less than $80 and add another 5 fast and easy streams of income to your Internet home business.
I hope you can now see that starting an Internet home business is actually a very fast and easy thing to do. Now that you know this, there should be nothing stopping you from earning a little extra income on the Internet. Persevere and you can make it your living just like myself and countless others have done.
