So, you’ve heard of people making money hand over fist on the internet and you know it can’t be that hard, but you don’t have a clue how to get it done. I know these feelings first hand. I remember back in the day when the internet was first becoming a household word. My niece told me that she had received a virus through an email. I was appalled! ‘My God,’ I thought. ‘How in the world could she contact a cold through a machine?’ I didn’t even know how to email, let alone what a computer virus was.
The internet was a mystic illusion. I knew that somehow these websites would pop up when you typed in some words, but had no clue how they got there. When I found out a good friend of mine was a “webmaster” it put me in the mood of deep reverence. I thought she had somehow gotten a masters degree in her spare time on weaving webs (you know, like spider webs?).
When I finally entered the community of the World Wide Web I was awestruck by the technology of a chat room (good grief!). In that chat room I found out people were making a living with businesses on the web. I learned what it meant to be a webmaster and because I had always owned my own successful businesses I was sure I could somehow create a business online. I mean, how hard could it be? I found a web building system and built a web page. I mistakenly thought that once you had a page built you just left your computer on and it would magically go up on the search engine Yahoo and everyone would be beating the doors down to get to the site. Domains? Hosting? Never heard of them. Marketing? I knew all about that in the brick and mortar world, but I didn’t translate that knowledge to the web. Let’s just say I didn’t know the FIRST step of success online and therefore my first attempt at an online business was a complete and utter failure.
Of course I was massively disappointed. I had always been able to create success in business, what was I missing? All these other people had thriving businesses online and mine had flopped in a major way. How was this possible? It wasn’t until several years later that I learned what I had done to create failure. And oh boy was I embarrassed. I look back now and can’t believe I thought I could create success without the proper education, without ANY education!
It IS true that anyone can generate a successful business online. It’s NOT true that you don’t need the education and tools to get it done. The steps of success for business online follow the same rules as brick and mortar business and the first rule to success is proper education. There is a learning curve and if you are serious about making a living at home you will cut the time it takes for success drastically if you educate yourself in the art and science of business online before you open the doors to your establishment.
There are many ways to get this done:
1. Most universities have courses today for online business (highest cost)
2. There are online courses (medium to high cost)
3. Video/audio/written and recorded courses (low to medium cost)
4. Books and eBooks (low to medium cost)
