Both Starting and efficiently operating a profitable Online Internet business can be astonishingly similar to operating any other offline brick & mortar business. Essential offline business practices are fundamentally critical online if succeeding is actually part of your online marketing plan. (You would be shocked to see how many people just neglect that point in their planning.)

Establishing trust and value with your prospective customers is what will help you development long term business relationships and revenue streams that will become primary assets which can help ensure profitability regardless of less than hoped for economic conditions.

This is the first part of our 15 part blog series geared to helping you start your first online business.

If you’ve always wanted to start a profitable online business but have no idea where to start, this series is definitely for you.

The Targeted Traffic Solutions team has seen hundreds of brilliant ideas for online properties and profitable businesses, but for one reason or another they were not able to get off the ground, we figured it was time to give a little back to the people..

If you fall into any of the categories below, you owe yourself this opportunity, all it’s going to take is your time, willingness to learn and ability to take action. We’re not charging anything for this incredible A-Z blueprint and powerful content, so let’s get started shall we…

Top XX Reason’s For Not Being Able To Get Your Idea On The Ground & Online Where it Belongs…

  • You have zero idea on how to run a business.
  • You have absolutely no idea how to create a website.
  • CSS, XHTMl, PHP, AJAX, JQUERY all sound like things your doctors say’s you need to eat.
  • Umm you don’t have a lot of money to invest
  • You just learned that computers can create graphics, designs and logo’s
  • You have no clue on what to create your website about
  • SalesCopy and Web Content Copy are two phrases that make you wonder why they just don’t call it “writing” like normal people…
  • You don’t know where or even how to start ?
  • You are sick of reading hyped up infomercial promises that you just know are scams and wont work.
  • You Still think Google is actually the Internet.

Truthfully this list could go on for pages, but those were the top things that popped into my head over the last thirty seconds or so…

Now that we’ve got the basics out of the way let me outline some important reasons that you absolutely need to start your business online…

Incredibly Low Start up Costs

In comparison to starting a traditional offline business or even worse a franchise of some kind ( I cringe at the thought ) You can literally have a fully functional (albeit basic) online property up, ready to take orders for as little as a few hundred dollars. An important distinction needs to be understood which is that you are creating a business and it’s will take time, work and effort if you are hoping to achieve anything…

Various Skills Required

The bottom-line is you are going to need to either learn, or have someone utilize the necessary technology to achieve your goals.

  • Niche Selection
  • Online Market Research and Discovery
  • Webdesign
  • Website Usability
  • Graphics and or Video Element Creation
  • Split Testing
  • Conversion Optimization
  • Email Marketing
  • Server Technology
  • Computer Language Programming
  • Secure Payment Integration
  • Traffic Generation
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Paid Search Marketing
  • Social Media Optimization
  • Product Testing and Development
  • and So on and So on….

Now before you through your hands up in the air and give up, you can still succeed quickly without knowing any of that if you have even a modest budget to invest… Even if your dead broke wondering if you could learn to stomach the taste of cat food, you can make this work, that is as long as you don’t actually try and eat cat food…

None of the above needs to be learned in a single day, in fact most successful online entrepreneurs have spent years learning, and still spend a lot of time learning new skills all the time…

If there were a few things that you really need to succeed without understanding any of the above they would be as follows:

A desire to succeed and provide a better life for you and those you care about…

An ability to commit yourself to spending even a few hours a week learning and putting the steps we give you into action…

Some basic time management skills, The more you can put into this the better and quicker the results will be…

Understanding that building a profitable online business if NOT some get rich quick scheme…

Even if you think this must be BullShi#, You allow yourself to “Suspend Your Disbelief” (Thanks Frank…) and give it a shot… I mean lets be honest all you have to lose is the opportunity to better yourself, the absolute worst case scenario is that 3 months from now you’ll be in the exact same chair doing the exact same thing your doing right now…

An International Audience with Endless Marketing Options and Possibilities…

Being able to laser target the online population and provide an offer that earns you serious money without ever having to actually meet, speak or talk to anyone is an incredible feeling… While it may seem impossible to you right now, actually checking your daily email to determine your online earrings and having the funds immediately forwarded to your bank is a pretty cool thing to be doing whether your at home stuck in a blizzard or the beaches of Belize sipping on something slushy…

I really could go on for pages, but I will save it for future posts, if you seriously ready to change your life once and for all you really need to do the following:
