Starting An Online Business From Scratch

Posted on in Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle, websites "how to"

Starting An Online Business From Scratch is not as hard as it seems….

 

 

Let’s create a NEW starting an online business experiment.

Over the next few weeks me and you will be starting an online business based on advertising alone.

This is a FREE training to replicate the same business model use by……


 

Television

Radio

Magazines

 

All three rely on advertisers paying to put their ads in front of millions of people.

Why can’t we copy their model?

 

Can you get the attention of 1,000 people?

How about 10,000 people? 

How about 100,000?

 

Because the Internet has billions upon billions  ( cue in Carl Sagan ) of users, all you need is 1,000 of them to visit your site every week. ( Thats 142.85 visitors per day, I used a calculator )

 

By the end of this experiment we will try to replicate the same model that all the media channels use. we will be starting an online business from scratch. 

 

The end game is to give value to at least 1,000 people a week so they keep coming back to your Website and while they are there you can sell advertising space on your website.

 

Kinda like a billboard on the side of the road.

In this blog post I will create my website and choose a domain name.

The site must do 2 things.

 

1 – Provide some sort of value to the visitors….

2 – Keep them coming back for more….

 

Are you ready?

Are you excited?

I sure am!  Lets Begin!

Ok, to show you how simple the process is, I will buy my domain name from my iPhone lol

yeah….it really is that simple.

Go to google and search for  Godaddy.com

 

If you actually do a search you will get a domain name for…… .99 cents lol 

This is a ONE TIME offer so if you have already purchase a domain name from them, you don’t qualify…boo hoo

 

Butt (I’m a child) seriously  ….ONE DOLLAR for a domain name, you can probably count

on one hand the amount of things that you can get for a dollar.

Lets Continue…
