Plenty of people want to make money online. You need the proper mindset and a willingness to stay the course. Do not fall for advertising touting scams of earning money for doing nothing or getting rich in 30 days or any other thing that sounds too good to be true. Success is not easy. Once you have decided to venture out into the Internet world for business, these three keys to online success will help.


Build an Online Presence

 
You must be willing to invest in yourself and your future business. Building an online presence is as simple as setting up a web page or a blog. First you need to purchase a domain name. Then I suggest setting up a WordPress blog using your actual name as the domain name. If your name is already in use, you can use a hyphen between your first and last name or use something like YourNameOnline.com or YourNameMarketing.com. Take time to come up with what you want to communicate as your business or your niche, because you will probably not be able to change it.

 
Create a Product for Sale Online

 

You may be wondering how you can create a product, especially if you are just thinking about starting a business online. Do you have something that you are truly good at and love doing? Do you have a hobby? Is there a subject that you know a lot about? If so, you have a good beginning point.

 

You can write an ebook detailing how to implement what you do or make short step-by-step videos demonstrating the process. You can blog about your expertise and put it into book form at a later date.

 

Drive Traffic to Your Product

 

Once you have your product you can sell it through your site. Join some safelists and traffic exchanges so you will have places to advertise. You will need a LCP (lead capture page) to get peoples’ name and email to start building a list. These will be filtered through a funnel via an autoresponder. As you are building your list, you are posting valuable content on your blog at least once a week. Less often will get you nowhere as far as an online presence is concerned.

 

You must be prepared to be “in” for the long haul, as things usually do not happen quickly. It takes patience, persistence, and perseverance as with any business. If you have money to invest, your progress can happen faster, but you can also lose a lot of money, especially if you are a newcomer to online business. There is a learning curve, so do not be too hasty. Check things out before diving in.

 

Setting up an online presence, creating a product to sell, and driving prospects to that product are the basics for making money online. If you are willing to do the work and stay the course, following these three keys to online success will help.
