ASK THE HOMEPROFITCOACH INC LLC The 5 Basics for Building an Online Business That Actually Makes Money

 

Hello, My name is Howard Martell, AKA HOMEPROFITCOACH IN LLC Consultant and Business Coach.

I want to share some important information with you today in reference on how to properly leverage the correct tools online for maximize traffic exposure.

A little about myself been marketing for over 24 years online, and wasn’t until left my first career serving The Great Republic in the US Navy for 20 years as Cyber security professional that really realized what being a professional marketer and coach entailed.

My story is short and sweet hard working eager online marketer who needed assistance with how to properly build a list of solid clients globally and capture resultant sales.

In 2009 December one of my good marketing friends kept telling me about Worldprofit, and eventually signed in as a free associate and that same day joined as Silver Member.

 

Some of the tips I will provide can be utilized in any business:

 

With the boom of the Internet and social media has arisen a new category of entrepreneurship. Successful entrepreneurs such as Mark Cuban, Elon Musk, and Peter Thiel got their start with online businesses. An online business offers an unparalleled opportunity to run a business worldwide with only a laptop and Internet connection.

Starting and growing an online business, however, is easier said than done. Today, 2.5 billion people log onto the Internet. This is good in the sense of the opportunity for income, but negative in the sense that an online business has become a modern day gold rush.

Everywhere you look a new “guru” or “expert” who offers their cheat sheet or course on how they made “seven-figures” in one year. Logging into your Facebook account can be downright depressing with all the over-hyped ads. Choosing whom to learn from can be just as hard as starting an online business.

Here are five simple steps to making money from a dream or an idea you have and enjoy. You don’t need the gurus to start or grow a business that will free you to make money on your terms.

1. Focus.

When I say focus, the first thought that comes to your mind is probably “niche.” While figuring out a profitable niche is important, it’s not the end all be all. Focus means figuring out who you want to serve and how you will deliver value to that group.

It means you stop following the gurus and focus on what will help you where you are. There is an abundance of free information online, almost too much. Many entrepreneurs fall victim to information overload. I’m guessing that if you applied 10 percent of the knowledge you currently have, you would make progress building your business. Turn off the constant learning and focus on 20 percent strategies. Use a service like Unroll.me to unsubscribe from unnecessary emails lists that take all your time.

2. Build an audience.

This is where many businesses miss the mark. You put together a beautiful website with all the right plugins, widgets and opt-in boxes. You follow all the steps, but the money doesn’t come because you have no audience.

There are many ways to build an audience and quickly:

  • Be a guest on a podcast. Every morning, Radio Guest Listwill deliver to your inbox a list of shows looking for your expertise.
  • Guest post on blogs. There are blogs that get millions of visitors each month. In 2012, I guest posted on 50 blogs that brought half a million visitors to my website.
  • Get exposure from large author sites. If you can be interviewed or write for sites likeEntrepreneur or the Huffington Post, you get exposure to millions of potential leads and customers. Writing for these websites builds authority, grows your social media presence and leads to sales. Here is a podcast episode that walks you through how to do this.

3. Develop a monetization plan.

After you’ve started to get exposure, it’s time to implement your plan to generate income.  Your website/blog needs a content strategy that aligns with a promotion schedule. It shocks me how many coaching clients come to me without an organized plan to generate revenue. Plan what products and services you will be offering your customers. Use your exposure and content plan to sell premium offerings and build your business.

4. Test and refine.

Once you have a plan and have implemented it, study what works and what doesn’t. There is a lot of advice online, but nothing beats good old fashion testing. Try different offers, bundle various products and services, run sales from time-to-time. Once you have an offering that takes off, run it every 30 days. Refine your process and improve the parts of your plan that aren’t working.

5. Launch and scale.

By this point, you will have built “1,000 true fans” and a business that’s ripe for growth. Always launch with a bang when your promotions hit at the end of each month or quarter. This means you have affiliate partners, joint partnerships through webinars and launch bonuses. Each launch should produce serious revenue and momentum for your business. From that point, it’s a matter of reinvesting and scaling.

Starting and growing an online business is not easy. There is a lot of competition talking about the same topics as you. It takes time and tremendous focus. It takes beating self-limiting beliefs and the haters. It’s hard, but the lifestyle of true freedom it creates is priceless.

Some of the tips I will provide can be utilized in any business:

STEP 1: Obtain licenses.

STEP 3: Make sure the look of your website is captivating, efficient, and that everything works.

 

STEP 4: Establish an online presence with social media and marketing sites. 

 

STEP 5: Ensure there is meaningful, well-worded information on your website. 

 

STEP 6: Establish business e-mail account list.

STEP 13: Start making money, pay your taxes in time and Enjoy your life!

 

 

 

 

Word of Advise: Try to avoid Internet scams if you are getting started with a internet based business. Many work-from-home opportunities advertised over the internet are scams and will try to charge you fees. Do not purchase expensive kits, books, or systems designed to make money. If they feature videos of people with expensive homes, cars, and images of “real checks” by the owner, do not buy into the scam.

 

That said, there a few reputable companies online that will pay you, although generally not in very high wages. Better to start your own business and create your own opportunities!

 

 

 


Tips On What To Avoid With Your Internet Business

 

  • Since a feeling of isolation can come from working online, make certain to take breaks and get out of the house often.
  • Keep your working hours within reasonable limits. If your business grows to big too handle by yourself, hire an employee.
  • Allowing interruptions is not wise. Inform everyone in the family of your working hours and do not allow interruptions to invade those hours.
  • Establish a clear and organized work space. No matter how small your home is, there must be an established area for work space. Do not mix your home stuff with your work stuff. Keep it organized for success.
  • Not creating a schedule is like driving without directions to your intended destination. A schedule is a necessary component of successful online businesses
