Hey there, Clark here, and a big welcome to BecomeWealthyWithMe.com. Today let me introduce to you some home based business ideas in Australia, which you can also manage from anywhere else in the world with just a laptop and a reasonable speed Internet connection.
I’m talking about, of course, Internet marketing, and there are many ideas that you can come up with based on this.
The Explosion of Internet Marketing
The Internet has shifted many things, and one of them is the way people acquire products and services. Nowadays billions of dollars are being spent online daily, and digital products are one lucrative category that has become possible due to the Internet. And despite the term “marketing”, you can choose whether or not to promote/sell products and services in order to make money with your online business.
You may have heard of affiliate marketing, which is where you, the affiliate, help other people (merchants) to promote their products on your website (site). You don’t have to create a product yourself. Another very popular way to make money, and that which does not involve any selling, is placing advertisements (ads) on your site and each time someone clicks on one of your ads you earn a bit of money.
The first step when starting an online business is always choosing your “topic” or niche. This is going to be the direction of your business. It is what you’re going to be writing about on your website. Over time you can build multiple online businesses catering to many niches. A niche can be any topic that you love or enjoy – for instance health food, pets, weight loss, fitness, musical instruments, personal development, travel, etc. With 3.5-plus BILLION people online, any topic you select is big enough to be profitable.
Nowadays, due to the fact that the technical aspects of website building and hosting can be ALL taken care of behind the scenes, it is very easy to get started with Internet marketing. Your involvement can be just deciding on your website name and theme (design), and by clicking a few buttons you can have a fully operational website ready for making money.
Creating a website is equivalent to building a “retail store” on the Internet. It is where you’re going to publish quality content that will help your website visitors get what they need, and that allows you to quickly build trust and authority with the search engines. Thus, when a search is made in Google, Bing or Yahoo, the relevant post on your website will likely show up on the first page of its search results, and will likely be read by the person who made the search.
That is your main job, to build trust with the search engines (and therefore getting lots of visitors to your site) by publishing high-quality content that helps your readers. Another visitor means another opportunity to earn some money, but you need to help them first. You don’t have to be an amazing writer to be successful, just communicate via your website like you speak to your family and friends. That is more than enough.
If possible, spend a few hours daily creating + publishing new content, working on the layout of your website, etc., at least during the initial phase of your business. Doing that, you could potentially earn $2,000-$3,000 a month within, say, 3-6 months of building a new website. It is also possible to scale your business to make tens of thousands of dollars a month, say in 5 years’ time.
A Recommendation for Getting Started
There are many online scams, and an EASY way to avoid all of them is to start somewhere for free, and test things out before deciding whether to proceed any further. The free training alone at Wealthy Affiliate is enough to guide you in selecting a niche to building a free website and making money. You can of course choose to invest some money later on to scale your business, but that’s totally up to you (you can stay a free member forever). Read my Wealthy Affiliate review.
