Understanding The Basics of Internet Business
I see a lot of confusion online about working from home and how to make money in this crazy internet world.
Instead of focusing on building a real business, people seem to get hung drawn and quartered by scammers promises overnight riches at the click of a mouse.
For many, spending hours filling out silly surveys for a couple of coupons is the best the internet has in way of sustainable income.
The whole idea of internet business has been marred by pyramid schemes and so-called make money online gurus.
So let me stop right now with what doesn't work and get to the good stuff.
[alert-note]“Starting such a business can be an exciting and relatively low-cost way to make extra money or launch a new career, whether you are providing services online or using a website to market your products or skills.
Despite the advantages, starting a home internet business is difficult, and most internet businesses fail. To make yours a success, you will need a clear plan, a polished website, and an effective marketing strategy.”
The Reality of Internet Business
Wouldn't it be great if I could find Google's best-kept secret and discover the ever so mysterious loophole to overnight riches?!
You and I both know that's not reality – just scammers taking advantage of people's emotions.
What I'm sharing with you here is a legitimate and honest way to start an internet business that works.
You can earn money online from the comfort of your own home. Earn.
Are you dedicated to improve your financial situation? Do you have a passion to improve your quality of your life? Do you want a job you can do from your home or anywhere in the world?
You will need to be committed driven to start any business, on or offline.
The good thing about an internet business though is that there are no shipping, rental or storage costs. (Oh and your potential is 3.2 billion daily internet users.) 🙂

Here's What You'll Be Learning At Wealthy Affiliate
1. You'll Choose A Topic For Your Website
Is a website really necessary for building an internet business? In a word, yes. But don't worry – Wealthy Affiliate makes it super easy even if you've never done it before.
Think of a website like your very own store front, except you'll be open 24/7.
Choosing the right website topic (niche) is a first important step.
Your website could be about absolutely anything. You'll want to start an internet business around something that interests you, that gets you motivated and excited to talk about.
If you're still stuck, it's okay, the training videos and Wealthy Affiliate community will clarify this in your mind too.
2. You'll Learn How To Create Your Site (Takes Less Than 3 Minutes)
In Lessons 4, 5 and 6 you'll be setting up your site and getting it ready for the search engines.
By this stage you'll be building your internet business by adding a few blog posts and pages.
Google loves content! Unique, fresh content in all it's forms (whether posts, videos or images) is what will get you ranked in Google.
Important note: This is really important – the success of your internet business is directly related to how helpful your content is.
When you're writing, forget about the money side of things. Weird I know – but you'll be a better writer if you do this. Focus on giving high value, good quality content to your readers and the money side will take care of itself. Offer solutions of problems, give answers to people's questions.
3. Getting Footfall For Your Internet Business
Imagine for a second you've got a shop on your local high street – you've got it kitted out with the bells and whistles, got great products you're sure will fly off the shelves…. there's just one problem.
Generating web traffic is one of the most important elements of starting a successful internet business. Once you've got your beautiful, professional website up live on the world wide web, you'll need to learn how to get lots of visitors (traffic) to your site.
Wealthy Affiliate teach dozens of traffic driving techniques but to begin with you'll be focusing on:
- Learning how to research keywords and get ranked on the first page of the search results of Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Companies like Amazon, eBay, Samsung, Nike, Walmart all have affiliate programs you sign up to. They give you a unique link you can use on your site.
If you promote a product or service relevant to your website niche and people click on it – you earn a commission – simple right?
So there you have it! A quick overview of how you can start an internet business from home, with no financial investment required.
