Build An Internet Business In One Day

building your internet business in a dayThe below is sound advice whether you’ve yet to start your online business or you’ve already started and just need a pick-me-up.  If you’re just starting out in Niche Blitzkrieg this post will be useful for you as well.

One of the little known facts about building a business online is that you can actually start and have your business up online in less than one afternoon.  That means after you read this post you can get started….

(Third times a charm….) Yes, what I am saying is that TODAY you could fully research a market that you want to get involved in and have your new website up and running.  Will you make money today?  Probably not, but you can start making money pretty fast.

So in this post I am going to show you how you can get started today and continue to have success by simply writing about what you love.

  1. Get Into A Niche Market That Has Competition

The first thing you need to do is select the market you want to be in.  If you select a smaller niche market it’ll be easier at first and you’ll have less competition.  However, it will plateau at a certain point if the market is too small.

Many people get scared to enter a market with competition; don’t be.  If a market has no competition it probably doesn’t have many buyers.

Consider Selecting A Broader Niche Market Instead

I.e. weight loss, bodybuilding, financial, gardening, etc.  You could even perhaps target a slightly narrower niche like weight loss for women, weight loss for men or something like organic gardening.  You’ll start slower but you’ll build up to a mega site fast that can bring in quite a bit more money than a smaller niche market.

The thing to remember is if the niche is too small you won’t have enough people searching for it.  If a niche is too large it will be hard to keep your focus on growing it.  It is because of those 2 reasons I recommend a targeted niche market on a popular topic.

Remember this isn’t a way to get rich fast (as I always say – they don’t exist); but to build a real business that you can turn into a spectacular money maker for the long haul.

One of the best things I can recommend is to get into a niche market that you love.  If you love knitting get into that niche, if you love rock climbing get into that one.  The reason I suggest this is because it will allow you to continuously write or talk about a niche about something you love.

When you love something you’ll be less likely to quit, give up or become completely bored.  Trust me if you are in a boring niche that you hate, all the money in the world won’t keep you interested.

  1. After selecting your niche you need to get a domain name.

The domain just needs to be something that can be branded or you could include the keywords in it. It’s not really 100% necessary anymore to contain your keywords (it also doesn’t hurt either). Make it short and snappy and make sure it makes sense in your niche.  I.e. you wanted to get into the Men’s style niche you could come up with something like www.fashionablemale.com or www.thestylishman.com.  If you were into cat supplies you could get the domain www.thehappycat.com.  Optionally you can include some of the keywords in your industry in the domain name as well but, again, it’s not as important in modern times.

The above are simply just examples of what you could do. 

Then get hosting – these are the only 2 expenses you’ll have. You’ll spend a total of about $10/month to run it.

If you have no clue how to do this, simply grab my free course UNLEASHING YOUR SUCCESS and follow my steps there (if you rather have step-by-step hand holding through it all – plus 24/7 help get Niche Blitzkrieg).

  1. Install WordPress In Minutes….

We build our websites using WordPress.  Why?  WordPress is free, simple to use and can allow you to make a beautiful website without knowing how to code anything.  It’s all point-and-click simple.

I know I’m going to sound like a broken record here but…..

…..If you have no clue how to do this, simply grab my free course UNLEASHING YOUR SUCCESS and follow my steps there (if you rather have step-by-step hand holding through it all – plus 24/7 help get Niche Blitzkrieg).

  1. After installing WordPress and it’s time to start writing about what you love to write about.

One of the best was to decide what to write about is to go find other websites who are in your very same market and find out what they are writing about!  Find out what they are missing or have yet to write about and make sure you cover that subject.

Quick exercise:  Go find 3 websites in the same niche market as you.   Identify 3 topics that all 3 have covered.  You now have 3 topics to write about immediately.  Just make sure you don’t steal their writing, write everything in your own words and make sure what you’re discussing is unique.  You only need to write one post for today.

A quick way to find these sites is to go into Google or Bing and type in your niche market into the search engine.  I.e. if the niche that you selected in body building for women then type that into the box.

I have some additional writing tips here.

  1. Next, get a Twitter account (free) and create a free Facebook Fanpage. 

Don’t worry about making them fancy just use them out-of-the-box for now.  Make them fancy after you’re making some good case.

Share every post you make on both of those accounts.  This will help get people to see your site and bring visitors to you.

Never setup a Facebook FanPage before?

Justin Lewis has a nice tutorial here… (takes less than 5 minutes)

And for additional details here is another post on using Facebook for traffic.

http://www.nicheoptimizer.com/how-to-create-a-facebook-page-that-goes-viral/

 

  1. Next, Join an affiliate network like www.linkshare.comwww.sharesale.comwww.cj.com or even www.google.com/adsense – They are free to join.

After joining, add some affiliate banners on your site that you can make money with.  You will make money when someone clicks your ads or buys something through you.

Try to put out at least 1 post every other day and continue to share with your community.  If you can put out one post per day that’s better.

Focus on HELPING your industry and you’ll get better results.  I.e. if you’re in the weight loss niche focus on helping someone lose weight.  The more you help, the more likely they are to come back to your site and the more likely they are to buy from you at some point. 

Make sure you stay current with news in your market. 

Anytime something new happens in your industry, report on it.  Even if it’s just a 200-300 word post to announce the news it’ll be helpful!

This will show your audience you’re up-to-date on current affairs and even if a visitor doesn’t buy from you when visiting your site over newsworthy events you’ll find that they could potentially buy from you the next time they visit your site.

Also share with your family and friends on the social networks as well.

Using this one tactic with Facebook and Twitter has brought over 31,000 visitors to just one of my brand new websites since July 1st.

fast visitors stats

In this experiment I only received about 10% of my traffic from the search engines.  The rest is social media only.  Not bad, eh?

I have over a dozen more traffic techniques for you inside www.nicheblitzkrieg.net but you can do well with this technique alone.

Again, if you have yet to start or need step-by-step video walk-throughs join either of the 2 below to start.

UNLEASHING YOUR SUCCESS OR (if you rather have step-by-step hand holding through it all – plus 24/7 help get Niche Blitzkrieg).  Your choice.

YOU CAN HAVE YOUR SITE BUILT – TODAY!

You can actually do this in a matter of hours.  Plus, you now have an asset that you can continue to grow.

It doesn’t matter what your age, skill set or experience is you can do this.  Recently I shared an ordeal that my family is currently going through here.  Numerous people logged on to share their own stories of what they are going through and how they are getting passed it to build their online businesses.

Just Do It!

The key is to JUST DO IT.  The longer you wait the less likely you are to build your own home based business.  The longer you wait, the longer you work for someone else and have less control of your future.

Even if the money starts coming in slowly it’s better than $0, right?  Plus, as you scale I up you can increase your sales. 

You have now built a business.  No, you're not Bill Gates yet, but you have it started.  Once you've started, tay with it and keep growing it.

You won't know everything about making money online at this point BUT you'll be able to grow and then learn more after you're making money.

Let me know if you’ve started or are rededicating some of your time back to building this business below…

Working steady and sure on it. Still all so new to me, I wish I wasn't so dense and could pick this all up quicker, but I am trying to understand how it all works. It is hard for someone like me who is a hands on type, hard to relate to conceptual and abstract ideas when you are more mechnically inclined. LOL

Thomas,

Shift your focus.  Get into one niche you love more than any other and just pound it.  Work mostly on content and sharing that content.   Get that one booming and making good money before even thinking of moving on.  This has helped a lot of people who were in the same boat, in the past.

Macena,

One thing that might help you is think about each post going up as a post that will potentially help your visitors in some way.  Somewhat like I just posted above; I am not worried about it making me money.  However, it will.  So if you think in those terms it might help you.  I also fully understand the hands on concept.  I like to see videos and turtorials of things and that was a huge reason I made Niche Bliztkrieg, simple, because there are many peopl like us.  🙂

Mike; I have been working on my site but I am getting tied up with the content on the post pages. I think I'm going to have them writen for me. sounds like a good idea but not sure who to trust. My friends can't believe I'm doing this. They say they could never understand it. It does seem daunting at first, but you learn by doing, right!? Thanks for the support.

That was kinda helpful for me. I want to get started quickly but I’m just too afraid because I’m a newbie. Right now I’m in trouble of deciding the keyword. Recently I’ve found a keyword with 4 word, 4000 monthly search & low competition. Is that good enough? I’m having a hard time here :D. Please help me!

Mike,

You can have them written at a place like Iwriter on-the-cheap.  I actually reviewed their service here: http://michaelsbrown.com/iwriter-review-how-good-is-it-really/

But, one thing you can do is attempt to do the writing yourself.  Trust me, you'll get better every single time.  I looked back at some of my originals articles and posts and almost cried they were so bad.  However, they still made me money 🙂  The key is just trying and growing.  Each time you do it it gets easier and easier.

Lo,

Even though I instruct new stuents to look at keyword competition (and quantity) it's a mere quideline.That's all.  You can get into any niche you want.  You don't need to rank the home page in the search engines it's all the other stuff that will matter more  Get into a niche you love, make sure there is competition in it and then keep posting out good content that will help your audience (sorta like the post above) 🙂

Michael Brown - November 1, 2012

Thomas,

Is the content helpful for your audience?  I.e. does it help them solve a problem or entertain them?  If not consider doing that first.  Then use the Facebook traffic technique I share above by building a Fanpage.

Hello Michael,
I obtained your NB and Review Site courses awhile ago and, while I understand the material, haven't been able to get going. My big hangup has been selecting niche(s) and good keywords – just seems so complicated for very little reward. This post (and comments) is real encouraging. You are basically saying don't worry so much about the domain name or keywords – pick something you are passionate about and go for it! Does this have anything to do with Google getting a lot tougher on "junky" sites?  This is a great article – thanks!

Phillip,

Not as much to do with Google’s updates as much as a trend I am starting to notice with people building smaller sites.  I have noticed a tilt in people wanting to build something substantially and have less to deal with at the same time.  The solution has been to build a niche that you’re going to love that way you stay with it.  The other thing I noticed is that anytime I’d say something like… “you can build a site that is only 10-15 pages if you wanted.”  People would always stop at 15 pages.  While it’s true you can build small sites like that, why would you?  It’s better to keep growing and adding more content instead.  This in itself will allow you to make more money.

Philip Malone - November 12, 2012

Thanks for the reply Michael – so I am right that the domain name and keywords are no longer so super – critical if you are doing something substantial?  For example, if good domains are taken, I might just use a hyphen in there or something. Just clarifying…  Thanks for the help!

Reply
Michael Brown - November 20, 2012

You can use a hyphen, yep.  I prefer to stay away from hyphens and brand more now but either way works.

Thanks again – I am thinking of a couple things – one is a site that may be super huge eventually – it is on an angle of health and fitness I am passionate about (as I have had great results myself).  Another is on a type of product that's a subset of the big one – a "review" site. I've been asking these follow up questions because all the EXACT domain names are taken (exact domain names with big hits) – so I am adding "info" to the name or making some other tweak. I am just hoping it doesn't impact my results – from what you've said it shouldn't too much as I have the freedom to add a lot of good content/keywords within the sites. Correct??  Thanks for listening.

Philip,

Nope it won’t affect the long tailed keywords you’ll rank the individual pages for.  So even if your main keywords were something like “workout” which would be hard to rank for the rest, would not be. Get a brand-able domain and just brand yourself.  I.e. have a nice logo created, create a Facebook fanpage early on, etc.

It’s good that you passionate about the niche as that will go a LONG way.

Keep going man you’re on the cusp of doing something fantastic here. 🙂

Hi Michael,
I'm just 4 videos into your free ''Unleashing Your Success'' course but I'm struck by the depth and amount of work put into it. You could have charged it for something like $50. I think this says a lot about you. So thank you. I'm considering purchasing the Niche Blitzkrieg as it comes with 24/7 support. 
I'm having trouble deciding my niche. Do I need to be knowledgeable about it? I'm thinking about gaming headsets. It has about 6,600 global monthly searches. Now, I haven't owned a gaming headset before and I don't know a great deal about it. But I'm definitely interested, which is why I asked you. Can I start doing research on them while at the same time learn about affiliate marketing? I have a few more ideas such as lucid dreaming, making money online,beds and sleep aids. I feel sleep aids isn't targeted enough; there are a huge variety of products that help induce sleep. For example, brainwave entrainment, self-hypnosis, sleep masks, ear plugs, sound machine, relaxaing music etc. So is lucid dreaming. Plus people who want to learn lucid dreaming are mostly looking for free ways to do it.  So,what do you think? In one of your posts, you mentioned toys as your first niche. Did you have to know a lot about toys to start off? If none of the ideas above are suitable, then I really have no clue which niche to choose.
Besides, English isn't my first language. Will this hinder my progress? Thanks for reading.

Hi Michael,
I wanted to edit my previous message, but I couldn't find a way to do that so sorry for posting twice. Out of all the possible niches mentioned above, sleep aid is perhaps the area I'm most interested(together with lucid dreaming) and knowledgeable in. I'm only concerned that it is too general(too many different types of products);in one of your posts, you said it was important to make our chosen niche more targeted(personalised dog bowls instead of just dog bowls). Also, does it matter whether or not the products you promote are cheap? Or do they have to be decently priced to make money? Many sleep aid products such as binaural beats, herbs, supplements do not cost much. Thank you for your time. I appreciate it.

Michael Brown - December 20, 2012

Thanks for the questions and kind words 🙂  You won’t need any knowledge when you first start researching a niche.  It helps to know something about it but I’ve gone into severl completely new niche markets before where I had no prior knowledge.  You’ll need to learn about your niche as you grow however…

As far as toys go, I had no clue back in the day 🙂  But was still able to make good money with it.  Your English won’t deter much from it.  Just keep as many typos as you can to a minimum.  I sometimes make grammatical misakes myself.  It’s life, we’re not journalists 🙂

Look forward to seeing you inside the program with us.

Hi Michael.
Thanks for replying. I just purchased the Niche Blitzkrieg programme. So, hope to keep in touch. I do have one question. I've submitted a support ticket via Michael Brown support. But since I'm replying now, I might as well ask you here(hope it's alright). The NBK I purchased was a special offer($47); I'm wondering if the free premium upgrade you mentioned in the video only applies to those in the web seminar. Is the offer valid for people purchasing outside the seminar, like me? Thank you.
By the way, I've chosen chocolate gift baskets as my first niche. What are your thoughts on this? It's global monthly searches is about 3,600. I've also ordered a book on chocolates on Amazon so I can expand my knowledge of it.
