3 Steps To Online Success  -  The Processes Involved In Making Money Online

3 Steps To Online Success

The thing is "Making Money Online" really isn't that tough, once you know what you are doing. The reason 99% of people fail to make any money online is because they do not possess the necessary skills that are involved, and if you do not possess the right skills, whatever you try will be 10 times more difficult and in the end, when you haven't seen any results, you will just give up...

So, first lets simplify the process down to just 3 steps.

  • Step 1 - The Tools
  • Step 2 - The System
  • Step 3 - The Traffic

Okay, lets talk about these three steps in a bit more detail.

Step 1 - The Tools

To make money you either have to have something to promote or to sell, after all you can't really expect people to just give you money for nothing! What you have to remember is, every penny that you make online comes from someone else's pocket, it is not magiced out of thin air to your bank account, so unless you are providing something that someone needs or wants you can be sure they won't give you any money.

The main tools you will need to begin your online business are:

Tool 1 - A Website

Until you get your own website, you will not have much success with your marketing efforts. Don't let this scare you though, website platforms like WordPress make it very easy for beginners to create professional websites in just a few hours.

Tool 2 - An Autoresopnder

This is basically a service that allows you to email your customers legally on a scheduled or on demand basis. You can create a series of emails that start to send when you customer subscribes. It also allows you to 'Build A List', this is probably the most important thing you can do to grow your online business, if fact regardless to what you have heard, if you do not have a list, you do not have a business!

Tool 3 - A Product

"What" I hear you ask, "First he want's me to build a website and now I have got to create a product?"

When I first heard that I had to have a product to promote I thought the same thing, however, you do not have to create your own product. There are millions of products out there for you to promote, either physical goods or digital goods.

Step 2 - The System

Okay, when you have the necessary tools in place you need to set up a system, once you have your system in place you can start to build your LIST and build your business.

Often called a sales funnel, this is the process that your prospects will go through once they have arrived at your website. The purpose of the system is to turn prospects into leads, and leads into paying customers. (yes, you guessed it, more about this later).

Step 3 - The Traffic

This is without a doubt the most important part of the 3 steps. After all, you can have the most amazing website in the world, but if nobody sees it your business will fail!

The simple fact is, if you have done Step 1 and 2 correctly, the more you do step 3, the more leads you will generate, and the more sales you will make.

One of the most difficult things in starting up an online business is coming to terms with the concept of time, it takes years to build a successful business, online or offline you need to establish the foundations of the business and let it grow.

Believe me, there is some serious money to be made online, but you have to learn walk before you can run!

So, stop thinking about the concept of 'Making Quick Money', the money is the very end result, instead start thinking about the concept of 'Creating Value' for your customers and creating a business based on that Value, when that is in place the money will follow!
