As one of my business mentors said: “The money is on the list! If you grow your list to 1.000 persons you get $1.000/ monthly, if you have 10.000 you will get $10.000/ monthly, and if you have 1.000.000 you will get $1,000.000/ monthly”.
However, The underlying SECRET to have success is:
To have a clear idea of how your product or service can help others!
So, what’s going to be? Are you willing to give yourself that opportunity?
If you read this up to this point, I know you are just one step away to take this simple (though a life-changing one) decision. YOU OWN YOURSELF THAT – AND YOU KNOW IT!
Do you want to know more details on how to implement each of the 7 steps and the secret behind each one?
1. FIND AN AREA (NICHE) WITH WICH YOU FEEL MORE FAMILIARIZED OR THAT YOU LIKE
As a first (1) step to Start, an Online Business with NO Money, you will need to make a list of things you like to do or that you have some “expertise”.
In your work (especially, if you like what you are doing) you have learned and probably found your own way to be more efficient at it
Are you using software or a particular device that helps to do better your work?
Do you have a hobby and buy “stuff” for it, for example, a photographic camera, surfboard, drones, video games, books, or even cars?
This area all areas where most of the companies and brands look for people to give reviews on their products or services and most of them will have an affiliate program or brand ambassador program.
3 Main markets or desires.
People look for solutions for their problem around those 3 areas:
You probably have found training clothes for a workout in the gym or a protein drink that you like.
You are using some kind of credit card that offers you better advantages (like give you back a percentage on any shopping, or offer vouchers).
Have read a book that has helped you find your “half” or has helped you with your children.
Do you think that any of those things could help others?
If so, that could be a good starting point to have a clear idea of what kind of niche you should start your online business.
2. FIND A PRODUCT OR SERVICE THAT YOU WANT TO LET OTHERS KNOW ABOUT
Even if you have already an idea about the product you want to promote, it is still very important to know how much people are interested in it.
You can find the trend on the demand for your product at www.google.trend and analyze it in a period of 1, 5,10 years.
You are looking for a trend that doesn’t drop or “crash”, and if your product is not on that downward trend, then it will be a good investment!
3. LOCATE THE WEBSITE OF THE COMPANY OR BRAND THAT SELLS THAT PRODUCT OR SERVICE
Now, you need to find the website of the Company or Brand with the product or service you decided to promote.
Find the affiliate program or brand ambassador program on the Top menu of the website.
If not, scroll down to the end of the website.
After finding the program, just follow the instructions to subscribe to the program that will end up with your URL (Unique Referral Link).
It’s important to read the rules of the company’s program, so you know any specific requirement to advertise.
Some of them have already Banners ( a headline or advertisement appearing on a web page, in the form of a bar, column, or box.) and successful texts that can help you to better promote it.
(Exceptions: there are others here the programs are not so visible and you will need to search it on the web by writing the name of the website, that you know, and add “affiliate program”).
An easy way is to join the affiliate programs of Amazon, E-Bay.
However, the commissions are lower than when you affiliate directly to the website of the product or brand, but surely you will find the product you want to promote over there.
If you affiliate with Amazon, it will be easier if you have your own website, Amazon (like most of the other programs, will investigate you and the way you promote, having a final word if they accept or not your application.
(Note: Be sure that is the website you looking for and not some “affiliate” website)
4. Join The Affiliate Program Of That Company Or Brand
This wil be a very simple process, as all you need to do is to click on the company affiliate link and go through the sign up process.
It will be very important to fill up the bank details where you want your commission to be sent to.
And really, it is that simple.
(Note: Some companies will have a requirement to accept your inscription, and that will be to have a Website where you go to promote their products or services. An easy platform to create a Website can be found in here – https://wordpress.com/ or www.wix.com)
