4 Steps To Creating An Online Business
The video above briefly explains 4 fundamentals to keep in mind when learning how to create an online business. The 4 steps covered in this video are:
1.) Building A Niche Website
Every successful business needs a foundation to build upon and for an online business, that means having your own website. A well built website works for you around the clock and it can provide you with a steady source of income month after month, year after year.

2.) Creating Helpful, Relevant Content
Creating content for a site is where many new webmasters panic. They believe that they need to be great writers. Creating great content on your site is not about how well you write, it’s about how well you communicate ideas. Think about it this way; how would you communicate an idea to friend sitting across the table from you?
People do not like to be sold to, or spoken down to. They prefer simple explanations in a friendly, conversational style. That’s really all it takes to create great content that your visitors will appreciate.
3.) Get Rankings & Traffic
As you add more and more content to your website, search engines will begin to notice you and you will start being ranked for various keywords. The more pages that rank on the first page of Google (and other search engines), the more FREE traffic you site will receive.
The trick to getting lots of free traffic that converts into buyers is learning to effectivly find and use great keyword phrases. (The free account I mentioned above will give you 30 free searches with a very effective keyword tool) Having a lot of great, keyword focused content will lead to natural search engine rankings and visitors.
Once your site begins to receive daily traffic, you’ve got a business on your hands and it’s time to start making some money!
4.) Make Money
People who visit niche websites are often looking for products or services to make their lives easier or to find new ways to enjoy that niche. As an owner of a niche website, you have an opportunity to lead your visitors to these products or services and earn a commission in the process.
Once you learn how to analyse the traffic traffic coming to your site, you’ll be able to refine or add to your affiliate offers. There are many ways to monetize traffic coming to your site.
