Online marketing is not unlike the real world of business where, in order to make money, you either need to have a store in a prime location with products people want to buy or you need to provide a service that people are willing to pay for. It’s that simple.
The store can be a “brick-and-mortar” facility with a street address and hours of operation or it can be a virtual unit with a website (URL address) and automated “clerks” with unlimited open hours. This site will prepare you for the latter, so if you are looking for the “brick-and-mortar” business, you have come to the wrong place and you might as well leave now. Don’t let the door hit you in the backside on your way out!

Okay. For those who are still here, let’s get started.
Underway, shift colors . . .
I’m excited to see you’re still with me. I want to help you get started on your voyage to opening an online internet business.
What are the building blocks?
There are only three things you’ll need to get started: a website (with a toolbox), know how (training and education, the ‘how to’) and a support group (for when you get stuck in the ‘mud’). Let’s take a look at each of these, one at a time.
1. Website. Back in the day, when I first started to pursue online income, building my own corner of the web was an imposing task indeed. Everything had to be done, one agonizing step at a time. Nowadays, it is much simpler to develop an online presence and we’ve come a long way down the road toward streamlining the process. It’s not nearly as scarey as it once was!
But what is it, anyway?
You’re website is your “brick-and-mortar” facility and it comes with a specific address on main street. It has URL that you can tell your friends about and get it listed on internet search engines. Sort of like the local hardware store placing an ad in the yellow pages or local community rag sheet (newspaper).
The websites I’m going to help you build come complete with a full toolbox that has every tool you need for success, and probably a few extras that you’ll never use. No extra charge!
The main tools include a premier website builder, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Keyword Search tools, and Anti-spam tools. Did I miss anything important? It’s probably in there someplace.
This toolbox will help your website get noticed – by the search engines. It’s kind of like putting up a big neon sign, or a “moving” billboard along the highway, that says “Hey, look over here, I’ve got something you need to see!” After all is said and done, you can build the slickest website in the world, but if you don’t get noticed, what good is it?
2. Training/Education. Again, I have to say that it was not always this easy to get good internet marketing training and guidance on what it takes to be successful online. You still need to exercise caution to ensure that you don’t bet the farm on a less than honorable program (otherwise known as a “scam”). If anything, they’re more pervasive than ever before. But I’m here to tell you that this program is not “one of those things.”
Once you’ve signed in, you’ll find training classes that range from basic ‘how to’ video/written tutorials to advanced ‘hands-on’ seminars. Some are organized into multiple session classes that will provide a pathway to success and guide you through the steps required to get your website up and running. All you have to do is read the tutorials, watch the videos, do the exercises and chart your progress.
And you can do this all at your own pace. There are no time-clocks here and no-one is looking over your shoulder (unless you’ve invited them to). If you can only spare one hour a day, it’s OK. If you’ve got an extra twenty hours a day to learn, study and build your own empire online, well, go for it! It’s your choice.
3. Support Group. This is an area that throughout my early expeditions into online marketing left a lot to be desired. I remember leaving messages or eMails for my sponsor/mentor in some of the stuff I’ve tried, and it’s like they fell into some bottomless pit somewhere.
No answer. Not now. Not ever.
Well, this program is not like that!
The support group here is centered around a very active “blog-post” forum. It’s like being in a room that houses all the members of the group at the same time. And they’re all willing to share their lessons learned so as to short-cut your own learning curve.
If you get stuck in the mud, someone will hand you a shovel and someone else will get behind your wagon and help push! And someone else will bring in a tow truck, or a tractor, or a team of Oxen.
You have only to ask!
4. Traffic begets $uccess. In my humble opinion, like I said earlier, you can build the slickest website in the world, but if you don’t get noticed (if you don’t get traffic and you don’t get click-thrus), what good is it? So getting traffic is the name of the game, isn’t it?
As near as I can tell, getting traffic is a subtle art. You can’t manufacture it. You can’t force it. You cannot drive it to your website.
All you can do is lure, coax, cajole or persuade it to your website by writing quality and quantity content and hope for the best results on click-thrus (or direct sales of your own products and services). Content is king of the hill.
Wahlah! You’re a $uccess – you’re in the money!
(I know, I told you there were three building blocks and now I’ve gone and told you about four! Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself. I’m a straight-shooter, I call ‘em as I see ‘em and I am sometimes brutally candid.)
Training + Support + Website w/Tools = $uccess
Everything you need is here.
This is the complete do-it-yourself package!
Bottom line, this is easy – but it takes a great deal of work!
No-one is going to do it for you, but we’ll help you if you get stuck!
I know if I can do this, you can, too!
OK, wiseguy, what’s this gonna cost?
You can get started for FREE! How simple is that. You can enroll today, or tomorrow, or next week, and it will cost you the same amount – FREE! But one thing is for sure, you can’t sign up yesterday because that opportunity is gone forever. Know this, however, it was FREE then, too.

Moored, shift colors . . .
