|"7 Advantages of Starting Your Own Legal INTERNET BUSINESS&Making Money Online" by legalwealth(m): 12:17pm On Aug 19, 2012|
Now that you are here friend, I presume you are planning to start an Internet
business, or you already own one.
But just in case you are still undecided on starting one, let me give you 7
‘Excellent’ reasons why you should start one TODAY!
SEVEN Advantages Of Making Money Online
1) Global market.
The Internet knows no boundaries, be it cultural or territorial. More and more
people are getting to the Internet for a variety of reasons from sourcing for
information to shopping online. This is indeed one of the fastest growing
markets in the world today.
As long as you have an Internet connection, you can operate your business
anywhere, and I mean ANYWHERE. Be it your bedroom, toilet, Australia to
Hawaii. It doesn’t matter.
Nobody cares if you wake up in the middle of the night to work and sleep late
the next day, or you might want to take a week off from work and go on a
vacation. You CAN do that.
4) Low capital.
I’m not saying NO capital. Most, if not all Internet businesses will need some
kind of initial investment or expenses, but compared to an offline business, this
5) Leverage on technology.
In MLMs or network marketing, the concept is to leverage on people, but in the
Internet world, you can leverage on technology. There is a lot of software that
will help you to automate a lot of tasks which otherwise would have taken much
of your own time to do.
6) Minimal overhead cos ts.
Other than your Internet connection fees, hosting fees and a couple of other
miscellaneous fees, you practically do not have anything else like an offline
business do, like rental, salaries for employees, etc.
You are the BOSS. How much you make and what you do is entirely your
decision. Your destiny is in YOUR hand! Nobody dictates how many days in a
year you can take off and when you can take off. The best part is nobody tells
you what time to wake up on a Monday morning (I sure love this.).
Now that we have dealt with the reasons why you SHOULD have an Internet
business, we can proceed to the second part of my introduction, which is the
purpose of this book. What it hopes to achieve.
THIS IS NOT ABOUT INTERNET MARKETING!
You read that right. I’m not here to teach you Internet marketing know-how. I’ll
leave that to the marketing gurus.
But I’ll show you 9 Internet business models that you can copy from.
When I say copy, I don’t mean literally COPYING the whole website (i.e. known
as STEALING). I actually meant modeling after them. After all, the fastest way
to success is to find a mentor and model after him or her. Don’t do it the hard
way and reinvent the wheel.
“If you want to be successful, find someone who has achieved the results
you want and copy what they do, and you’ll achieve the same results”
This report serves to explain 9 different types of Internet business models so
that you are aware of what kinds of businesses are available to you. I’ll explain
how each of them works, what do you need in order to start (at least the
basics), the different ways you can make money with those business models,
the pros and cons. Where possible, I’ve been generous enough to include a
couple of interviews from my membership site. If you like what you read, do
If you already own an Internet business, you might want to create an additional
stream of income by starting business number two, three or even nine for that
BUT, why show you different models of Internet businesses instead of just
telling you that this business is the best and that business is the best? Good
question actually. If you scour the Internet for business opportunities, you will
be flooded with hundreds, if not thousands of them. Each one claiming to be
the best. But exactly which is the BEST?
Actually none of them. Each business model is unique and different. And each
of them has their own pros and cons. The BEST business model would be the
one that you suit you.
But in order to come to that conclusion, you’ll need the necessary information
about all of those businesses. If you choose the wrong business, you would not
persist or strive for it. You won’t enjoy it. And worse of all, it’s likely you will not
If you have noticed, there are a lot of proponents on making money from
information products. I do agree that selling information products is an
excellent way to make money online. But does that mean you will need to sell
information products in order to be successful?
NO! There are plenty of other businesses that can make you money. Selling
information products is NOT the only way. When you read the interview stories
with people who are making money with their Internet business, you’ll notice
that not all of them are in the information product business or the Internet
In the course of your online business, you will have to spend quite a lot of time
searching for certain tools and services like web hosting, auto responders,
mailing software, web designing, forums, and so on.
BACK TO BASICS
There are certain basic components that you need when starting your online
business. Of course not all business models will require each of them. But I’ll
explain the few basic components that MOST will need.
1) Domain Name
Depending on what you want out of your domain name, this will determine how
you choose it.
If you are looking for a short, catchy and easily remembered domain name,
then go for something short and unique.
But if you want your domain name to have good rapport with the search
engines, then go for keyword rich domain names. (This is the general
understanding. Whether it really HELPS in the Search Engines or not cannot
2) Web hosting
You need to find a good web hosting company. There are many in the market
out there. Check out which one will suit your business needs.
Generally, you’ll need secure server capabilities. As is the common practice
now, they should be offering you cgi capabilities and ftp accesses.
One thing to take note, do not be tempted by FREE hosting. Nothing is FREE
in this world. The risk of your site having downtime and lousy support far
outweighs whatever you can save by not having a proper hosting company.
But if you are just testing out some mini-sites, then it’s okay to go for free
hosting. But be forewarned, you get what you pay for.
3) Order processing
If you are selling something that needs to accept payment, then you will need
to be able to accept credit card payment online. If you don’t, you are missing
out on 90% of your potential sales.
It’s quite simple to set-up a third party merchant account with one of those
companies that provide this facility, i.e. accepting online payments.
Got it? Good, let’s ROCK ‘n ROLL!
COPYCAT BUSINESS #1 - DIRECT RESPONSE
This is one of the most common business models you will see on the Internet.
Why? Because it’s one of the simplest website to create. A typical direct sales
website will have one sales letter (typically a rather long one) ‘persuading’ you
to buy the product it is offering. And if the visitor likes the product, they proceed
to the order page to purchase.
If they do not wish to buy at that point in time, they leave. But are they let off
that easily? Not really. The experienced marketer will find a way to get hold of
the visitor’s email address so that they can keep in touch with the visitor again.
The reason is simple. Majority of your visitors will not buy on their first visit or
first contact. Studies have shown that it takes on average of 7 contacts before
a sales is concluded (for your information, this applies to both online and offline
In order to have the optimum results for converting visitors into customers, you
need to contact them on average, 7 times.
By capturing their email address, you can email them with some useful
information and at the same time pr omoting your product again, thus
increasing your chances of conversion.
Nuts ‘n Bolts
Your OWN product.
This does not necessarily means a product you create on your own. It can be
something you created, you bought a resale rights to or even something that
others created for you. But the bottom line is you have to have CONTROL over
Whether you like it or not, visuals do appeal to the eyes, one of the human
sensors. Visuals alone will not define your success, but it will assist you in
converting MORE sales.
This will make or break your business. Whether your visitor decides to buy or
not will depends on how persuasive your letter is. There are lots of resources
on how to write persuasive and compelling sales letter. If you are a Warrior
member, you can download lots of excellent Payment processor
You NEED to accept online orders. I’m sure you have heard that.
If you want to capture your visitors email address, this feature (whether you like
it or not) will increase your sign-up rate by more than 200% as compared to
just using a sign-up form at your site.
Prepare a series of messages to be sent out at certain intervals (example
everyday or every two days) to those who opt to sign-up to your mailing list.
Remember, do not just send out blatant sales messages. Before you even
reach the 7
series, they would have already unsubscribe.
Instead, offer something useful and informative relating to your product, and
subtlely recommends that they need your product.
This model can be extremely profitable, especially if your product is an
intangible one like downloadable e-Books, software, audios and so on. Your
product and delivery cost is practically zero.
After having built a successful website on your product, you can automate a lot
of the tasks involved. This will free up your time to launch another website.
After selling your product, there are opportunities to profit from recommending
related back-end products to your customers.
resources for FREE.
You need to have a product. To some people, this can be quite a challenge.
The next thing you need is writing your sales copy. Depending on your
command of the English language, this can be easy or challenging. I suggest
getting some resources to learn how to write compelling sales copy.
The next tough part is driving traffic to your website. Please do not have the
impression that visitors will ‘automatically’ visit your website just because you
are selling something which you ‘think’ they need. Tough luck!
Tips, tips and tips
Internet marketing plays an important role in this type of website. There are lots
of Internet marketing books and courses that you can learn from. Of course,
there has not been a manual that is the Bible of Internet marketing. Simply
because marketing is dynamic and unique to each business, you need to tailor
what you learn specifically to your website.
