Starting an Online Business While Broke or With Little/NO Money

Are You Broke? Here Is How You Can Still Start An Online Business…

You may think that you need to have a lot of money to start an online business.

This is not true at all, in fact, you can be broke and still start an online business just as easily as if you did have a lot of money.

Starting a Business When You Are Broke Is Better Than Starting a Business When You Have Money

There are a lot of free resources you can use if you do not have any money.

These resources tend to be more effective than the resources you invest in if you do have money.

You also tend to be more creative when you have no money.

So when you start earning cash, you don’t only begin to become less creative, but you become more lazy and less motivated.

In the beginning, you do not have the money to spend on outsources, so you do everything yourself.

You try different creative methods and see what is the best method for you.

When you have money, you tend to outsource all of your work.

You are not as involved as you would have been if you did not have any money.

You begin to spend more money and less time on your business.

When you pay for an outsourcer to do the work for you, you should not expect high quality work that exceeds your expectations.

If this is what you are looking for, you are better off doing the work yourself.

It is especially important to have high quality work when you are just starting your business.

As your business gains success, you may then start to outsource your work as the quality is still important, but not as essential. images

Think About The Quality, Not The Money

When most people begin to start a business, all they see is money.

They are constantly revolving their business around money.

If this means adding a lot of ads and products to your website instead of quality, you can be less successful.

Most people that start out with less money tend to be more focused on creating value in their website.

When people already start a business with money, they are just looking to earn even more money.

This is not always the case, but often times it is.

You Gain More Experience With Less Money

When you have very little money, you spend the time figuring out how to do things for yourself, since you do not have the money to pay someone else to do it.

When you experience the different ways to be successful, this knowledge will eventually help when you want to start another business, or if you want to continue to grow your business.

As your business begins to grow, you learn to stay involved with your company, but hire some people to help you.

If you started out with money, you may never learn to stay involved.

Instead, you may just hand out all of the work to people who will do it for money.

Gaining experience is essential in developing a successful business.

You need to experience trial and error for yourself or you may keep making the same mistakes over and over without even realizing it.

Your best asset is your knowledge, experience, and creativity.

If you do not know how to do things correctly, how do you expect your employees to know?

Being Broke Can Be an Advantage

  • You get to gain more experience
  • Learn more
  • Keep your creativity and your ambition
  • Save Money
  • Grow your business to be very successful  download (1)

Pick The Right Business

What business can you be successful with if you do not have any money?

There are quite a few.

While starting a business is an investment, this does not mean that you have to invest the money.

Instead, you can invest the time.

When you begin to earn enough income, you can start investing money as well.

Affiliate marketing is a great business to start out with if you do not have any money.

You can use a lot of free resources to help you get started.

The best part is that you will not have to spend a lot of money putting together an affiliate market, if you do the work yourself.

As long as you provide a lot of useful and free resources on your website and attract traffic to your website through organic ways, such as social media, social bookmarking, and high quality content, this can give your website a great start for free.

Organic Search Engine Optimization For Dummies

Here Is Everything You Need To Know About Search Engine Optimization..

The idea of SEO, or search engine optimization, is pretty simple.

To start off, we will talk about a few things you should do.

  • Use relevant keywords that you are trying to rank for within your niche- put these keywords in the title tag of your website and the headlines on each page of your content.
  • Utilize the h1, h2, h3, and h4 headlines within your content- this will help outline your keywords as well as your content.
  • Underline, bold, or italicize your keywords that are being used in your content.
  • Create your content with your readers in mind- they should be able to understand the points you are trying to make.
  • Do not stuff your content with keywords- this can make your content look unorganized. Try to keep your keyword density from 1 to 1.5 percent. Limit your keyword usage to about 10 times throughout your page of content.

Despite what many may think using too many keywords will not benefit the website and cause them to rank higher in Google.

Instead, it will make your website look like spam and it will probably not rank well at all for those keywords.

Keep your keyword usage in mind, but do not write your content for these keywords.

Write your content for your readers, as this will benefit you the most.

SEO Methods

There are several aspects that go into search engine optimization.

These include

  • Keyword usage
  • Social Bookmarking
  • Creative Headlines
  • Unique Titles
  • Take advantage of social media

Some of these can be quite simple and take little to no time at all.

With keywords, you need to be careful about how much you use these keywords and what they are.

With necessary research, you can do this effectively.

When it comes to social bookmarking, you can hire someone to do this process for you.

If you want, you can also do this manually, although it may take a little bit of time, doing so will be well worth it.

Over time, you will begin to see the results.

Creating creative headlines will draw more attention to your article.

When someone searches for something, they may look through the titles to see what article may apply to them the most.

Chances are if you have a creative headline or one that is straight to the point, they will choose to read your article.

Keep all of your titles unique, this includes your website’s url.

Make sure your url is relevant to what your website is about.

Make the url something that people will remember.

Another great factor in search engine optimization is to utilize social media.

Social media is a huge factor for many website’s traffic.

Not only will this help attract more people to your website, but this will also create a community.

A community becomes beneficial in the long run. best-seo-techniques-2016

Create Backlinks

Backlinks are very important when it comes to search engine optimization.

Most websites do really well in Google because of the amount and quality of their backlinks.

When focusing on backlinks, make sure to do this step manually.

Although you can pay for someone to do it for you, you will benefit greatly from doing this step by yourself.

In order to do this, you need to have a bit of understanding on how to successfully create backlinks.

Do not purchase a lot of automated backlinks.

Many people make this mistake and Google does not like this.

Not only can this flood your website, but it also makes your website seem like spam.

Try to create a few backlinks at a time and do it slowly over time.

Over the span of a few months, you should create a few backlinks here and there.

Doing so will cause your website to rank really well within Google.

Take Your Time With SEO

Many people that are just starting to use their website tend to try and rank for certain keywords right away.

Do not do this.

Focus on the quality you are putting into your website.

Add a few necessary keywords throughout your website and the content on your website.

When you have created an article, then focus on doing a few social bookmarks, as well as backlinks.

Then go back to that article later on and do this process again.

Do not fill your website will a bunch of search engine optimization techniques all at once.

Pace yourself, take your time, and do it correctly.

These results will pay off in no time.

SEO is very important for every website and if done correctly, it can bring a lot of benefits in the growth and expansion of your website.

 

 

 

Is Affiliate Marketing a Pyramid Scheme?

Let Me Explain How Affiliate Marketing Is A Pyramid Scheme…

Is Affiliate marketing a pyramid scheme?

Yes.

This answer may have not been what you expected but..

Let me explain myself.

How Is Affiliate Marketing A Pyramid Scheme?

Affiliate marketing is indeed a pyramid scheme, but not in the way you may be thinking.

Take a corporation, for example.

  • First you have a CEO at the very top- this person is making the most money
    • Next, you have the managers- they make a little bit less money than the CEO, but they still make good money.
      • At the bottom are of course, the entry level employees- they make the least amount of money.

Now how does this apply to being an affiliate marketer?

Well think of where you might be within the list above.

Let’s use the Amazon affiliate for example.

Are you the CEO of the affiliate? No.

How about the manager? No.

Are you at the bottom? Yes.

Although you may not feel like it, you are technically the entry level employee.

Now the people above you are the product creators.

The products that you are trying to sell, these people own.

You are helping them with sales and traffic, so you are supporting them and working for them by promoting their products.

At the very top is Amazon.

  • Amazon- they make the most money
    • Product creators- they make a lot of money, but much less than Amazon
      • The affiliate marketer- this person makes the least amount of money

So as you can see, Amazon is at the top, but the product creators support Amazon by giving them a cut of the money they make from the products they sell through Amazon.

While the affiliate marketers support the product creators by promoting their products and encouraging their products to sell. download

Being an Affiliate Marketer in The Pyramid Scheme

As you can see, affiliate marketers are at the bottom of the pyramid.

This does not mean that they do not make any money at all.

In fact, affiliate marketers can make a lot of money from promoting the product creator’s products.

The more money the affiliate marketer’s make through affiliate product sales, the more money the product creators will make.

The more money the product creators make, the more money Amazon makes.

So in the end, everyone is making money.

Affiliate marketers do have to put a lot of work into making their money.

With that being said, if you put in the hard work first, you can start making money without having to work as hard.

For some, this may take longer than it might for others.

With plenty of knowledge and patience, you can begin making a full time income within a few months of hard work.

Being an affiliate marketer can potentially bring you a lot of money.

As opposed to the corporate pyramid scheme, the affiliate marketer scheme works a little bit differently.

Although affiliate marketers are at the bottom of the pyramid, they still make a lot of money.

They can easily live off of their income with no trouble at all.

For other entry level workers, they may never be able to comfortably live off of their income.

Affiliate marketers can also choose how much they want to make.

The more products they promote and sell, the more money then end up making.

For entry level workers, they can work for several years and still only make minimum wage.

So, being an affiliate marketer does not mean that you are at the very bottom.

You can be just as successful as being a manager in the corporate pyramid scheme. Affiliate-Marketing-Vs-Multi-Level-Marketing

Work Your Way Up

Here are a few tips for beginners to use when trying to work their way up.

  1. Find a niche and make it yours- make many websites about this niche
  2. Cross promote your website with other similar websites- find a website that does not compete with you, but instead complements you
  3. Avoid working with your competitors- do not work with anyone within the exact same sub niche as you. You can have a website about dog collars and work with a website about dog toys. Do not work with another website about dog collars.
  4. Start promoting other products before creating your own.
  5. Pace yourself and be patient

When it comes to being an affiliate, you are not stuck in one spot.

You will have a lot of space to grow and work your way up.

In the beginning you will have to work hard because you are at the bottom.

Once you have earned your spot within your niche, you can begin to grow and expand your website.

 

 

 

 

 

How to Get Out of the Sandbox (In 2016)

Do You Want To Get Out Of The Google Sandbox? Well Here’s How…

For those of you that do not know what the Google sandbox is, here is how it works.

When you first begin to develop your website, such as add content, use search engine optimization, ect., you may find that everything is going smoothly.

You begin to see traffic flow into your website and you really start to think that you are off to a great start and your website is improving.

You may even start to make sales from your website.

Then one day, you check your website and notice that everything has gone downhill.

Google completely just shuts you off.

Your hopes were up and you were beginning to get excited about your future as an affiliate marketer.

And now

You are at a complete loss, you no longer see any traffic coming in and you may have gone from making some money to making no money at all.

If this sounds like a situation you may currently be in, congratulations, Google has officially put you in the back of the bus.

You are now hidden in the 50th page of Google and it will now take you up to 6 months to get out of this mess.

Now when this happens

  • Do not panic
  • Do not become very stressed
  • Do not give up

Too many people decide to completely give up when this happens.

They suddenly give up hope for their website and their future as an affiliate marketer.

Do not do this.

There is a way out.

What You Should Do If You Are In This Situation

I listed a few things that you should not do.

Now what should you do?

You should keep going.

Keep creating high quality content often.

Also keep using search engine optimization to improve your website’s rank in Google.

You also need to keep looking for different ways to drive traffic to your website.

Try using social media as this will not only create a community of people for your website, but it will also give you another source of traffic to your website. local30-REVcopy

These platforms are essential in making your mark within your niche, as well as developing more traffic.

The more successful you are on social media, the more successful your website will be.

This is not the only factor that goes into driving traffic to your website, but this is a great opportunity that way too many people miss out on.

You can also share your post on these websites and have your followers share the post as well.

Social media is a great way to spread the word of your website. Seo-Ranking

How To Get Out Of The Google Sandbox

As mentioned before, you should keep working on your website to increase the value and quality of what you are providing.

This will also increase your rank in Google depending on your search engine optimization, such as your use of keywords and social bookmarking.

You should also use social media to leverage your success and drive more traffic to your website.

This will also be useful in the future when it becomes essential to have a community of interested users.

They can help spread the word and promote your website even more.

Remember to be patient because this process could take up to a year to get your website ranked high in the search engines.

So here are the essential tips to get out the Google sandbox:

  • Keep providing useful, high quality content
  • Continue to use search engine optimization on your website
  • Branch out in other ways to drive traffic to your website
  • Be patient and wait until you are back at the top again

The last step is possibly the most important step.

Without patience and ambition you will not continue to improve your website.

You cannot keep going if you want to give up.

Over time, you will be back at the top of Google search.

When you are back at the top as long as you continue to improve your website and provide quality, you will not have to encounter this hurdle ever again.

You should be able to enjoy being at the top, gaining traffic, and making a lot of money.

This typically only occurs when a website is still new.

You will be at the top for about a month and suddenly you will fall behind.

Do not be surprised if this happens, stay calm, and keep trying to rank high again.
