Online Business Set up Made Easy

If you are interested, you can set up an online business and make money doing it. All it takes is a little bit of guidance and some hard work. But once it is set up, you can really do well. One of my favorite ways is to sell “one off products.” I use the information in my head about a topic. I’m very familiar with, host a webinar, or a teleseminar, record it, and then sell it over and over again.

presentation (article 83) You can do this, too. Just follow these six simple steps:

1.)  Pick a familiar subject. It should be something you can talk about for at least one hour, and I am convinced that everyone has a topic like that, whether it is pie making, photography, or automobile repair. No matter the topic, keep it simple because your goal is to quickly put out some good, helpful content that will generate cash flow.

2.) Create an outline. Let me give you a simple way to do this. Get out a sheet of paper, and write your topic in the middle of it. Then brainstorm some subtopics for your main topic. Write these down and see if you can come up with two good details about each one of these subtopics. You need maybe eight to ten subtopics with two details for each one. Once you have those, you have an outline for sixty-minute presentation. How easy is that?

3.) Sign up for a free teleseminar service. You can find one that is free to use, and you can get up to 250 callers on the line. That is different from when I started out; usually you could only get up to 100 callers at a time. The cool thing is you can record your teleseminar and download it when you are done.

4.) Tell people about your teleseminar. But who exactly do you invite? Your website, blogs, and email lists are a great place to start. I would just go nuts with this stuff and tell everybody I know that I am having this wonderful teleseminar.

5.) Sell tickets to your teleseminar. I gotta credit Jim Bob Howard for sharing this with me. There is a great sight called Event Bright, and it is free to use. Your customers pay Event Bright, and then Event Bright pays you. But the beauty is you do not pay any money until you start making money by selling tickets. They save you a lot of hassle.

6.) Make a recording of your seminar. If you do this, you will be able to use your recording over and over again. For example, you can market the recording as an audio CD or have it transcribed for an ebook. You can even combine some of your “one off products” and make them into a home study course. The options are infinite.

So what are you waiting for? Why not set up an online business today?
