I know you want to succeed in your Online Business, but do you have the basics in place yet? In this article I am going to give you the 7 basics that all online businesses must have for a sure success.
Now I could get all fancy and technical from here on if I wanted, but when it’s all said and done, those who live the lifestyle they used to dream about, and spend all day with their families, have their online businesses fully automated.
Everyone else just pretends like it.
Question is… how do you automate, then?
Well, there are 7 basic requirements you need to be able to fully automate your online business:
1. A web domain
This is where you want you will direct people through your ads and other content online. You need to choose a domain that relates to your brand, and that is easy to read and spell. You can check to see if a certain domain name is available at www.godaddy.com
2. A website
This is a squeeze page.
This is a blog.
This is an info-site.
This can be whatever you want it to be, but one thing that it must be is highly engaging, and highly converting. You do not want people to land on your website and then lose interest and immediately go somewhere else.
3. A product
If you don’t have a product to sell, then what do you have?
What online business doesn’t have a product?
You don’t want a website that is just simply attractive and has informative and valuable content on it. You want your content to sell something.
Your product could be something that you have created yourself.
Your product could be from another company that you are promoting as an affiliate.
You product could be your MLM network marketing business opportunity.
Whatever the case, you want to make sure that you have a good solid product for sale.
4. A marketing plan
If you think that by simply “winging” it and getting some content out there in cyberspace that you are going to discover the lifestyle of your dreams…you are wrong.
A marketing plan is essential for online business success.
If you don’t have one, get a mentor or marketing coach, and work out a plan that will enable you to dominate your niche.
5. A way to get paid
There are various ways to accomplish this.
You could sign up as an affiliate through some affiliate center such as ClickBank.com.
You could become a rep for a network marketing opportunity.
You could set up your own membership site, and have people buy a membership through PayPal.
Whatever you do, make sure that you have a way to get paid.
6. An automation schedule
What this means is that people will click on your ad, go to your website, engage with your content, want what you have to offer, and then give you money to purchase your product.
All of this will be happening automatically, whether you are online or not. Whether you are “at work” or not.
Get your business automated.
Most people who get started in an online business do not see it through to success.
Do you know why?
It’s because they lack real desire.
Yes, of course they think that they have desire and that they are going to dominate the web, but when it comes down to fighting the flesh day in and day out, they give up.
Do you really, really want it?
Are you willing to pay the price to get it?
If so, and if you have the first 6 things firmly in place, then I am confident that you will succeed.
That's all you really need.
Most people try to make it more complicated than that, but there's
no need to — this is it, the whole “ball of wax.”
And even take off for 6 months and come back to find your online business
doing better than it was before you left.
Not many online businesses have these 7 basics, therefore not many online businesses are succeeding.
Go back through these seven points and put them in place, and a year from now see what happened.
But you don’t have to take my word for it…
