The Quickest Way I Know To Build Online Businesses That Make Money

Nowadays many people are looking for ways to build online businesses that make money, either as an alternative to a regular 9-5 type of job, or to supplement their ever-dwindling disposable income.

And still some are just DESPERATE to find some way to make money any way they can, and building online businesses that make money is becoming a more and more attractive option.

There are differing opinions as to how to build a business online, but let me introduce you here to the QUICKEST way I know to build online businesses that make money.

Building Online Businesses That Make Money - A Firm Foundation

While many say it's not necessary to have a web site to build a successful online business, I firmly believe having a web site is ESSENTIAL to building any kind of long-term online success.

However, I do agree that it's possible to make money online without a web site (there are plenty of people making money through eBay auctions or writing articles, for example, where a web site isn't necessary), it's much easier to succeed WITH a web site, and to see that success continue and grow.

Having a web site gives your online business a piece of virtual real estate and helps build recognition of your brand, much like having a brick and mortar building does in the offline world.

So, what type of web site should you have? Well, that depends on the type of business you plan to build. For a blog, WordPress provides the most powerful, FREE platform available and can be used for much more than just blogging. Set up your own e-commerce store with WordPress, using one of the many plugins available to provide your site with shopping cart software.

There are tools, some paid, some free, that allow you to build a powerful web site even if you can't spell HTML! Or, you can hire a contractor from Elance or Freelancer, or a web design company to build your site.

Whichever way you choose is up to you and your budget, but BUILD it, and, with the right tools and set up, the MONEY will come!

Building Online Businesses That Make Money - Building On The Foundation

With your web site built, the next step is to create content around the keywords relevant to the products or services you're offering via your site. The content needs to be original, informative and relevant to your visitors' needs, and should not be copied or plagiarized or your site may be penalized by the search engines and, thus, not found by the people who need it.

The quickest way to get good content written is to use the services of freelance writers from such online companies as oDesk and Elance, which provide excellent, skilled writers at very reasonable rates. Be careful, though, as many beginners use these companies to launch their careers, so look for ones with references and reviews from previous employers.

Building Online Businesses That Make Money - Putting It All Together

Your web site's in place with excellent content that is being found by an increasing number of visitors, but, to take your business to THE NEXT LEVEL in the shortest time possible, you need to set up an affiliate network to get your products and services promoted far and wide with little or no effort from you.

If you're offering digital products, set up an account and place them with companies such as Clickbank or Commission Junction, where affiliates can find them and set up campaigns to promote them.

Physical products can be offered through Amazon, which offers excellent affiliate programs, giving your products maximum exposure and leading to potentially massive increases in sales.

There are many ways to build a business online, but this is the quickest way I know to build online businesses that make money - and, with the right methods and strategies in place, the sky's the limit.
