Most people I talk to are at least a little curious (and sometimes equally skeptical) about the idea of starting an online business. But they don’t know where to go from there.
For the longest time, I avoided this whole world, because it sounded sketchy (and a lot of it was). But when I launched my own business, what I found out about making money online surprised me. Here’s what I learned:
- You don’t have to over-crowd your website with ugly pop-up ads that attack the user.
- You don’t have to turn into a used car salesman with slicked-back, greasy hair, hawking useless products at people who don’t want them.
- You don’t have to spam people to death and sell your soul to the Devil just to make a buck (promise).
- You don’t have to be a tech genius, anyone that uses a computer can do it.
- You don’t need crazy amounts of money to get started (Almost nothing)
Does this sound like you?
I have a lot of friends that are still living paycheck to paycheck just to survive. They are trading their time for money, and making their boss rich in the process.
My sister is just getting out of College, and having trouble entering a crowded, and competitive market that is in the process of downsizing. She feels stuck.
A couple I know of mine just had a baby, and they are trying to find ways to make some extra income online. But they aren’t exactly sure where they are going to get all that cash.
And of course, I know a TON of people who have been laid off, who are struggling to find work. And they are just waiting around till something happens and hoping someone finances their dreams…some day. In the meantime, they are growing more and more frustrated.
What are all these people suppose to do? Start an online business.
Why an online business?
Three reasons: It’s cheap, it’s simple, and it’s profitable.
Look, I’m not going to tell you starting a business is easy — it’s not. But it’s easier than it’s EVER been.
In the old days, if you wanted to be an entrepreneur (which literally means “risk-taker”), you had to take a lot of risks (duh). You’d have to buy or rent office space, raise some capital (i.e. go into debt), hire a bunch of staff, and hope for the best.
In those days, I never would’ve wanted to start a business. I never would’ve been able. But the reality is now you can start a business for around $25 (Contact me to get started)
What it really costs
If you want to start an online business, here’s normally what it will cost you:
- $5 year to buy a domain name (e.g. justlats.com)
- $5/month for hosting
- $0 to download (website-building software)
- $0 to install a free design theme for your blog/website
- $5/month for an online shopping cart (to sell stuff)
- $0 to accept purchases through Paypal
If my math is correct, that’s around $120 — for the year. Most traditional businesses, even a hole-in-the-wall restaurant with dirt-cheap rent, pay over 20 times that (it’s not as much as it sounds).
Yes, as you grow your business, the expenses can rack up but so will the revenue. The point is that it’s VERY cheap to start. And that’s the hardest part of anything: getting going in the first place.
So basically, all you have to do to succeed is make your first hundred bucks (to make back your investment), and the rest is profit. No investors, no debt, no problem. All it takes is time and energy.
“But I’m an artist…”
Right. You’re an artist. Like da Vinci. Like thousands who have come before you… and starved. Unless they had a patron. Someone who would pay their bills so they could create their art.
But here’s the thing: There are no more patrons. Not really. No one’s going to give you a heap of money for your genius. No publisher is going to buy your manuscript for a million dollars. It’s not going to happen.
That patron? It’s going to have to be you. The best part is we live in an age when this has never been easier.
Yes, easy. Compared to what you must do to start a traditional business, it’s easy to finance your own calling. You just have to have some guts.
Of course, starting a business will take work and time, but it is possible (and quite cheap). Which is what make this whole thing remarkable: Anyone who wants to do it, can do it.
It get’s even better though…
If you are still reading this, you must have some interest in making extra money, or starting an online business of your own.
The truth is, you can literally start an online business for 25$ TODAY and begin to earn while you learn. You just have to know where to look
I have decided to help 10 people start an online business, and you’ll only need $25 to get started, which will cover EVERYTHING you need to get your business off the ground.
If you are seriously interested, send me an Email with a short explanation of your “WHY”.
I want to know exactly what is going on in your life right now, that has you interested in starting an online business, and then we can go over your goals, and exactly how to make them a reality.
I hope this inspires some of you to take action, and make some big changes in your life!
Too your success,
