“I Want A Business Idea”
Here’s a question, did you just search for the term “I want a business idea”? Yes? And you ended up here because this site was in the first page of results? Am I correct again? I’m no magician, read on…
Ask anyone that has ever created a website how difficult it is to have your website on the first page of Google, Bing, Yahoo! etc, it’s very competitive, unless of course you’re are willing to pay for the privilege by using ads.
In this article I am going to tell you about a business idea, one that you can do from any computer, anywhere in the world, that is connected to the Internet.
This is what you will need:
1) A laptop or desktop computer with an Internet connection
2) Willingness to learn
This is what you will not need:
1) Previous experience
Sound good? So what is the idea I hear you ask… Affiliate Marketing! In this article I will provide you with stepping stones needed for you be able to create a website from scratch, and turn it in to a cash cow.
A word of warning: this isn’t a get rich scheme. This will not turn you in to a millionaire overnight. It may however with the correct mindset, time, and patience turn you in to a millionaire in the next few years!
What is Affiliate Marketing?
You may or may not have already heard of affiliate marketing. If you have not (or even if you have) I recommend you take a look at another one of my articles on Affiliate Marketing. Here I walk you through the steps, how it works, and how you can earn money from it.
What Makes My Advice Better… Here’s The Secret
Back to my first paragraph, you found this website because it was listed on the first page of your search results. This is no easy task unless you have the right tools in your toolbox.
Take a look at this screenshot from Jaaxy:
Within the Jaaxy keyword search facility I was thinking of ideas for my next article. I randomly searched for “I want a” to see what would come up.
I listed them in ‘Avg‘ this is the average number of searches per month. Take a look at “i want a business idea“. 2926 searches per month, that’s roughly 100 per day!
The ‘Traffic‘ shows the likely number of visits to your site each day, and importantly the ‘QSR‘ shows the number of competing websites with the same keyword search – in this case just 15, very low.
I therefore decided to use this term as the competition was low, yet the number of searches was relatively high and would make a great article about Jaaxy itself.
How To Make The Money!
You’re possibly questioning why I would want to tell you the secrets to Affiliate Marketing if I make so much money myself? Here’s the thing, almost every service or product you buy on the Internet you can affiliate with and take a cut of the purchase.
In this case for me, and this article, it’s Wealthy Affiliate itself and Jaaxy. They both have their own affiliate scheme too.
Take a look at Wealthy Affiliate own affiliate scheme:
For every person who is reading this that chooses to sign-up to Wealthy Affiliate via my special offer link, and upgrades to Premium membership I will earn $23.50 for every month they are a member! Here’s a couple of potential examples:
If it can refer just 5 people per day, who stay an average of 4 months, I will earn $1458 per month. This is just from this single article remember. Look at the figures if I could refer 50 per day!
Now let’s look at Jaazy’s referral scheme:
Again with 5 referrals per day I could make a monthly income of $3,600!
Need Website Ideas?
Think of all the items you have bought over the past year. Games, a new laptop, insurance, items off eBay, books, household utilities etc. All of these you could affiliate with and earn commision from.
A recommendation is a product review. When a user is reading a review their intention is generally to purchase that item, they are already in the mindset to spend money. If you can produce a website, that is easy to find such as this one you’re reading right now, and link it to the outlet where the items are sold then you are likely to have a sale.
Where To Start
Don’t know where to start? My recommendation is to sign up to Wealthy Affiliate. Here you can join for free, to learn just about anything there is to know about Affiliate Marketing. There are easy to follow video guides, virtual classrooms, and a community of like-minded people who are available to help you 24/7.
When you sign up, your account is free of charge. However, should you wish to upgrade to the Premium Membership which you’re not obliged to do, you have 7 days to sign up at a heavily discounted rate. Here’s my advice though, work through the first phase of training within the 7 days, get a real feel for it, talk to other people. After 7 days, you may think it’s not for you, or you may wish to continue using the free package, or you may want to progress even further with the Premium Membership.
