Getting Started online can be daunting at times because there is always something new whether good or bad that pops up here and there promising great fortune. A little advise that always works is stick to the basics and get your framework solidified first before moving on to the next.
Many people will say it is easy to start an online business but is it really? You ask them how and they will say you must have a website first and that is true because just like in an offline world, you would need a brick and mortar for your business.
Here Is A Simple Formula To Get Started Online That Can Be Expanded In Details:

#1. Find A Topic That Interest You
It is simple right? yes and it is not even a topic that you have to be passionate about although it would be a plus if you are because you can write/blog about it without even feeling like a chore. Don’t worry if you feel like you are not qualified for the topic you chose just as long as you are determined and persistent in learning all about it you will be okay.
People are searching for good information, helpful information, and information that can solve their problems. They don’t usually look at your qualification but that is not to say that you sell yourself short. If you have done your research on the topic and presented it in a professional manner then that is who you are, a professional presenter.
#2. Do Your Research About The Topic You Picked And Make Sure It Is Scalable
Now that you have the topic in mind, start the research process. By topic I mean it could be anything from Accumulating Tin Cans and other Recyclables to help the Environment to Zooming Lenses for Digital Photography Cameras. I just made that up to highlight the letter A to Z which means you can really think of any topic of any kind. It is also important that it is scalable which means don’t pick a topic that nearly no one reads such as “How To Climb Mount Everest With High Heels”. Scalable means you never run out of ideas to write about on that topic.
Don’t go too broad either because it would be harder to succeed. Examples of too broad topics are travel sites or hotels. Leave those to companies like Expedia.Com, Tripadvisor.Com and Trivago.Com because competing with them is something you won’t stand a chance! One other main thing to keep in mind is that your topic should have a product tie in. This means that there should be something that you can sell to your respective audience and visitors. After all, Your main goal is to earn money online.
#3. Join A Reputable Web Hosting Company to host your website.
It could be anything from Godaddy, Bluehost or WP Engine. Mine happens to be hosted by Wealthy Affiliate and I’ll tell you why. Not only that they have a reasonably priced amount comparing to others, I realized they are the best fit for my online journey and it could be for you too because of the help and be helped community they have established over the years and it is constantly growing rapidly. Last time I checked, there are more that 1.4 Million Members in the Platform and you would also have access to the vast online marketing resources they have in the Member’s Area.
Once you have your website up and running, then you are ready to write your compelling, helpful, solution finding articles for your readers. Constant practice makes perfect and if you keep doing what works, it will yield the same result every time. You will develop your skills building online business little by little focusing on what works and it will snowball into one that is profitable. Consistent Action Over A Sustained Period Of Time is the Key!
