Getting Started

How Can I Start My Own Online Business?

You are here because you’re looking for a genuine online business.

Maybe you are a beginner. Well done for finding the right starting point!

Or maybe you’ve been around the block a few times, tried different programmes, become disillusioned and are close to giving up. Yet you’re still looking… just in case you’re missing out on something.

We all know that it must be possible to make money through using the internet. After all, huge numbers of people are out there, connected to the internet, spending money. Clearly these consumers are making some people money.


Some are making money online to subsidise their offline income. Some have replaced their old jobs with their online money making methods. Others are making loads of money online.

How are they doing it?

Sleight of HandSadly, there are people who make money online by swindling others: these people peddle scams. We will look at some of these a little later

Then there are ‘systems’. They may look good but often end up as worse than useless – usually because of poor or non-existent support and training. All that happens is that you lose money.


Scams make promises that are just that little bit too good to be true. Typically, they claim that you can make thousands of dollars/pounds per day or week with no experience and/or minimal effort. Or assure you that if you sign up to this course or that some guy will turn you into a millionaire in a very short space of time. These people play on desperation and gullibility – or they may just be very persuasive.

Here’s the truth.

There are no get-rich-quick schemes. People don’t make fortunes overnight – unless they win the National Lottery and the odds on that happening are becoming increasingly small.

Here’s the best way to make money online:

  1. Set up a website
  2. Discover your niche
  3. Learn how to market it.

The first two are easy but the third is trickier but here is where Wealthy Affiliate really comes up trumps. The training is amazing.

What you get for starters:

  1. Two free websites
  2. Free training on website construction
  3. Niche exploration
  4. Free ongoing training on Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

  1. Thanks Trevor, I am taking next week off work so I can delve into this when I am not going to be distracted by work. Was it difficult to come up with a niche? I am not sure about that part of it at all.

    • I am working on a niche related to the work I have been doing for the last 30 years. If you have an interest that is the best entry to find your niche. Keep it narrow i.e. don’t choose bikes generally focus on a specific model. Be the expert in a very defined area. If you can’t think of one ( and there is a lot of tuition/guidance available) you can promote W A. There is a program for this it’s called ” the Bootcamp”
      I am currently working on two sites. This one and my special niche about low back pain. Not Pain not Back Pain but specifically “Low Back Pain”
      I hope this is useful.
