7 steps to start an online business

How I started Blogging Online

  1. choose a topic you are passionate about – this will propel the bob marleysuccess of your business especially on those days when you don’t feel like working. I chose Rastafari and Jamaican culture because I know a lot about them, and I love talking about and blogging about Jamaican and Rastafari Culture.
  2. start a free blog about it –  start a blog on wordpress.com and never leave it. WordPress.com blogs get a heap of traffic. I had a free blog on Rastafari before, but I got rid of it. I now have another blog called “jamaican love blog” on wordpress .com, It gets good traffic and I am really proud of it.
  3. start a paid blog – this is where you go to wordpress.org and set up a paid blog. wordpress.org has all the stuff a newbie needs to set up a professional self hosted blog. (More info on the next step how to do it)
  4. buy some hosting for your paid blog – I use bluehost. bluehost.com are the Rastafarian_woman_puruleaders in inexpensive quality webhosting for beginners. You can reach them 24/7. To answer all your questions about tech support and creating your first self hosted blog. Through bluehost you will set up and create your self hosted blog with your own domain name…like jamaicanlove.org or jamaicanrastafarianlove.com Go to wordpress.com and buy your domain name…then you will be all set to get a self hosted blog where you can start selling ebooks, handmade earrings, knitted scarfs, picture frames, recipes whatever you like.
  5. start driving traffic from your free blog to your paid blog – Your paid blog is where you will sell your products, eBooks, whatever you want to sell to make money because we are not allowed to sell stuff, on the WordPress.com free blog. Just their rules. So just drive the traffic there for buying.
  6. build even more traffic! – advertising (newspapers) YouTube, more blogging are some great options for getting more traffic to your paid blog. It really depends what you are blogging about, and what you are selling. Some subjects (like Rastafari ) are pretty much web only. Whereas other topics (subconscious mind training) are pretty much anywhere and everywhere. You will have to decide.
  7. 51v1uTgZojL._SX310_BO1,204,203,200_Keep blogging – With time you will be known among  the community your blog is in. People will expect you to produce “new works. ” Which is great because they will already be your customers. I now have more than 3 blogs, jamaicanrastafarianlove.com jamaicanlove.org and jamaicanloveblog.wordpress.com those are my main ones for Caribbean culture. You can also check out my work in progress subconscious-mind-training.com

If you want to write and sell books like I do. I recommend starting your blog and starting to write your first book all at the same time. That’s what I did. Then everything just snowballed on its own. Remember, choose the topic you are most passionate about, but think about all the monetization options before you begin so that you don’t get stuck and are aware of types of products you will be creating for you customers starting now.
