How Can I Make Money Online and End up with A Business?

The way to end up with an ongoing business is to nurture it as a young biz and keep that up, with continuous corrections, until it is a functioning business. And that doesn''t mean you leave it alone at that point.
Just before we go on let me tell you what I and other folks who have had real businesses for over 30 years think a "real" business is.
A ''real" business is one that knows it''s customers, and it''s customers know it! It also knows how to reach them, and has provided a level of service that insures a positive picture in the customers mind.
So that, when you reach them, they are in positive territory regarding another purchase.
In other words, they trust you. They also recognize that you provide value. They feel like you underpromise and overdeliver, a very positive mindset for you.
I live in the woods, in Oregon.
It''s a nice fall day here in the Pacific Northwest. I''m in a nice mission style recliner with a cold drink on the broad flat wooden arms. Yes, there''s a coaster under that drink.
I''m typing this article in my home in the forest. There is a raft of turkeys queuing up outside. I usually throw them some food. I like having them around.
I just got back from a long walk around the mountain. Fall is definitely on its way. I was thinking how good it is to have an online business that I can run from most places.
Actually I don''t have a website per se like we all used to have. I now have a blog. I aggregate all my information there (All Original) and have links out to mini sites that present one offer and simply at that. One offer per site.
Recently I installed a Clearwire wireless internet system in my van and spent some of this summer parked in the shade down by the river, casually taking care of business. I am amazed at how fast things download in my van. That''s really too cool because now I can go to the deli, get a sandwich and a drink and head on out to the park.
I got one of those little laptop tables that comes up by my leg and tilts just right. Sometimes I watch a video while eating my lunch. Life is good. If you make it that way. That''s point I''m making here.
Yes you can make money online. That''s if you learn the skills and apply those skills by actually doing something. Doing something is the key. Not just anything, but the right thing at the moment. That''s when you move your business forward.
People want into this because of various reasons but one of the biggest has to be to get out of the job they are currently in. It is a nice lifestyle.
There are a lot of people selling E books and such on how to get into Internet Marketing and they will go so far as to say it''s easy.
It''s not either. It''s work. It will get easier as you go along because you will get familiar with the myriad tasks and also find some shortcuts. To build an online business that reflects your personality and benefits from that same personality requires a self starter type that also has a lot of perseverance and guts.
Business has risks. But if you have the qualities I just mentioned you''ll probably prevail. Here''s the short version of what to do.
1. Find a market. (A group of people who buy something, like bald men and hair products))
2. Find a product they are buying that you can make money on.
3. Sell it to them.
4. Get their e-mail addresses and names.
5. Send them free stuff that they like on a regular basis.
6. Find something that they are likely to buy that you can make some money on.
7. Offer it to them.
Get one of these businesses nailed down and running.
Imagine what it will be like when you have thousands on your list! You can send out a special offer now and then, maybe once a month, and have a really big day.
And the rest of the time your list should be looking at your website to find something new you thought they might be interested in! Sounds easy, doesn''t it. It is once you have everything in place and the operation up and running.
I still have to go over and over my links to make sure they are all up and running.
There''s the work part. Getting everything in place and up and running. Do whatever you have to . Get it done! Then it will get easier and you''ll be making some money, too.
About that time, consider some outsourcing. (Hired help)
