There are so many internet hosting companies out there. It makes it hard to decide who to host with. Some specialize in higher-end clients, while others focus on the individual for their personal website needs. Any way you go, the price varies quite a bit, as well as the service. How do you choose?
START YOUR OWN
Yes, start your own hosting business. It seems like a idea that requires high technical knowledge of hosting servers and computer coding. Nope. You use the servers of an existing company as well as use their customer service to handle all issues. Of course, if you like, you have the flexibility to handle your own customer service.
You have complete control over the products that you offer, as well as promotional pricing, so that you can target the customers in your niche. If you stick with the products that you use, you will be very successful by understanding the needs of your customers.
On top of the great profits, you can even purchase your own products at cost, instead of the the marked up price that you pay anywhere else. Speaking of profits, it is reaccuring income. Most products have a monthly cost (such as hosting) and you get profits each month from it.
To get started, open an reseller account and design a home page showcasing your products that you offer. Begin your marketing campaign, sit back, and enjoy the monthly income.
Searching the Internet, you find a ton of websites that “give you the answers” to making money online. You’ve heard the joke, “it was on the Internet, so it must be true.” Obviously, it is hard to weed through all the garbage to find truthful answers. So where do we go for true answers. Forums.
I have found that there is a lot of good, honest information in forums. There is still bogus information there, but it is much easier to pick out. Posters will usually debunk any myths that are placed there.
I have had numerous problems with my computers (as we all have). After trying to search for solutions in the on disk help and vendor websites, I often come up empty. I usually find the solution that fixes my problem on a forum somewhere.
I have found an excellent Internet marketing forum. http://tinyurl.com/qcmhdm. It is well known as an authoritative resource. I recently joined and have found answers to a number of questions. Many of them have been opinions on various programs available online.
It is definitely worth a look. Check it out today. http://tinyurl.com/qcmhdm.
First of all, never expect that you will become a millionaire overnight with the push of some magic button. It just won’t happen. There are a million programs, ebooks, seminars, etc. that promise they have the solution to your problem. It may be true that you can earn a very comfortable living with those programs, but it takes time. You may see the claim that one person made $10,000 in 30 days. But what they don’t tell you is, it took 3 years until they started making that kind of money.
You need to be patient in your marketing efforts. I spent the first year not making a dime. Of course, I had no real idea how to market my products. After that first year, I gave up. My products lay dormant for another two years. Then one day, my eye caught one of my traffic exchanges in my bookmarks folder. I realized that it been two years since I logged in. So I logged in and started surfing and really paying attention to the sites that I was viewing. I made notes of key terms and the different types of programs that were available. I then started to get an idea how they all were being marketed. I opened up a new browser to do research on these terms and concepts. I found a lot of information that really showed me the different ways that were successful in bringing the product to the viewers.
Many of these methods of marketing are free. You can get pretty good results by using these free resources. I would recommend staying away from the paid resources until your business starts to become successful.
Make a daily schedule and stick to it. I have found myself spending all day online working and not really accomplishing anything. Spending every five minutes checking your stats and email doesn’t get you anywhere. Check it first thing in the morning and the last thing at the end of the day. Spend a little time doing research each day. In the beginning, that will probably be a big part of your day. Once you have your research done, you can focus on promoting.
In the beginning, start with one or two programs to start promoting. It gets overwhelming quickly when you start subscribing to nearly every program you see that has an attractive offer. Start small and gradually build on it by adding another program or two when you get going on the previous ones. As you go, it will be easy to manage all of your programs.
In summary, here are the first rules of a home business:
- Be patient, it will take work and time to start earning
- Don’t pay for programs and marketing right away
- Manage your time
- Take on only one or two programs at a time.
As with any available ebooks online, you will get a vast amount of opinions on how to write articles to market products and services. But, you need to figure out what works best for you. Even my favorite ebook has some techniques that I don’t use. If you pay $497 for a product, please use it to the letter. If you get it for free, use what you think is best for your business.
