Online Success On A Shoestring Budget

Online Success On A Shoestring Budget

shoestring chucks-476644_960_720Online Success On A Shoestring Budget : Probably one of the most popular phrases you will see – “shoestring budget” that is.  The truth is that any online business is just that A BUSINESS and requires tools and resources to run that business.  That being said it’s one of the most economical ways to start a business and new business owners should not try to start one without some of the very basics for online success.

It’s one of the reasons we love the affiliate marketing business model because it does keep cost to a minimum because the owner of the product or service does all the heavy lifting for you.  Things such as :-

You don’t need to write or produce any unique content

You don’t need to create any products to sell

You don’t need to write up any sales letters

You don’t need to provide any customer service or follow up support

You don’t even need to learn about internet marketing!

But instead, just focus on ONE simple task and you can create a passive income on the internet?

Here are what we consider some of the basic tools and resources for online success even if you are starting on a shoestring budget

Autoresponder Service

Aweber is our #1 favourite for both newcomers and seasoned entrepreneurs.  It’s simple to use, is reasonably priced and their support and training is first class.  Free Trial Offered

Lead Capture Software

Lead Pages is our preference over ClickFunnels for newbies and we believe easier to use.  It’s really a matter of personal choice but don’t spend more than you have to when starting out.  Both offer solutions that grow as you grow.  Free Trials Offered On Both

Tracking Software

There are many different services on offer but ClickMagick will grow with you and has great training and support

Domains & Hosting

We use GoDaddy for our domains and TSO Hosting for hosting our websites.  There’s also a new service we are looking with a great deal right now 3ForOne

The ONE Simple Task mentioned above is of course TRAFFIC

29713.1.6676899c912cee49f6421f9eeea8b30bTraffic

There are many different types of traffic and strategies but basically broken down into traffic you generate yourself or traffic you pay for provided by someone else.

Starting out it’s good to get some traction and have traffic from someone else but someone who is trustworthy and has a good reputation and who cares about your success. Therefore we only recommend Igor Kheifets Solo Ad Traffic to get you started

We highly recommend you learn more about traffic from our friend and mentor Charlie Page at the Directory of Ezines He’s been in the industry for a very long time and he’ll give you common sense training.

Essential Book For Online Entrepreneurs

DotComSecrets is one book you absolutely must have as so much of what you see and hear about is covered inside.  It’s free but you will have to pay shipping costs.  You will find this hugely valuable as you progress in your online business education.

How To Change Your Life

How To Change Your Life

How To Change Your LifeHow To Change Your Life:  You’ve heard us say it many times if you are a regular reader of our posts “there’s no real “secret” to success” .  If you’re not getting the results you want or desire then the odds are you’re going to have to make some changes in your life.

 

In truth, we’ll admit that making changes is easier said than done, especially when it comes to breaking the habits you already have.

Today, we want to share with you a video from our friend Jeff Walker (you’ve probably seen his videos here before because we’ve learned a lot from him).  He talks about how to change you life by taking advice on what he noticed made all the difference in his life…

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE

So, how do you change your life?

“Let’s face it almost everyone wants something different in their life. It could be getting in better shape. It could be having a better relationship or a new relationship. It could be having more money. Or it could be having a great business. And of course that’s what we mostly talk about on our articles – building a great business and a great life…”

Habits and behaviour change is hard. It’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. But the reality is to get something different out of your life, you’ve got to change some of the habits and behaviours in your life wouldn’t you agree?

We had to make some changes in our life when we decided the online entrepreneurship route because quite frankly some people really didn’t understand or even approve of what we were doing (especially family).

The other thing that Jeff Walker talks about and we totally understand too is that one of the worst things about becomeing an entrepreneur or going it alone in any endeavour is being alonejust you in front of a computer.  Now we’re lucky in that respect because there are two of us but our advice is make sure you are part of a community so that you get the encouragement and accountability partnerships that will help you push forwards. It’s why we only work with programs that have a community like that because we believe it’s paramount in your long term success!

The other important point Jeff Walker makes is to learn from people with experience – read books – not just any old books but books from people who have experience of what you are trying to achieve.

These things will help you to drive good habits and behaviours one step at a time.  It won’t all happen overnight because like anything momentum is caused through continuous tiny steps over time… but it will happen if you persist in your desire for success.
