Create an Online Business for Free—Making Money on Line

Can you make money online

Maybe you are like me who wondered if it was ever possible for you to own your own profitable online business, well let me tell you that the answer is a positive yes.

There are many things that you can do online some of which I have mentioned in a previous post. With some, it is possible to earn a good passive income.

Joining A MLM? be Careful

I know some of us to think that joining an MLM company and selling things and getting people to join with you seem easy and a good way to earn some money, but as research has shown, this is not so.

It may be possible but it is unlikely it has been found that 97% of all people who joined an MLM company has lost money in other words out of 1,000 persons who became a part of an MLM team only 3 will ever earn any money

This method of earning is simple enough that anyone can do it, but it has also shown that only 1 in 333 persons will be successful, It is very difficult to see a profit in this kind of business.

I was a member of Herbalife and Melaleuca for a number of years and I never made 1 cent I kept buying the products for myself because I liked them especially Melaleuca but I could not make a success of it   

Melaleuca Products

With Melaleuca The products are  made from all-natural ingredients which I loved but they were so expensive

Melaleuca describe their compensation plan as an ‘opportunity for the average person to start a business with virtually no risk and unlimited upside potential’.

 They then say that it’s a system where people with no financial investment’, can improve their finances.  All they have to do is refer customers to Melaleuca.

When joining Melaleuca you are signed up as a customer, not as a distributor like other MLM you then have the opportunity to refer others and build a business

.  In Melaleuca there is no difference between customers and members the plan says that you’ll never have to sell products because ‘all products are sold directly by Melaleuca’. this is correct only to a point

.While It is true that customers will place orders directly with Melaleuca. and there is no need for you to process orders or deliver products. But you still have to find people to sign up as customers and buy the products.

Cost to remain Active

To remain active in Melaleuca you have to order a total of 29  product points each product and try as I may I could not get 29 points to value less than  $60-$70.00so every month I had to be spending at least $60.00

It is noted that 66% of customers earned $0.00 in 2016 it is said the customers only joined because they liked the products and not because they wanted a business

We I joined because I wanted a business I liked the products too but my main reason for joining was to start a business

It is very difficult to get people to join because the price of the goods are very high compared to other brands that is sold in the store and  is they can order just what they want without having to order to meet the 29 points

You can start your own online business without the risk of losing any money there is a tried and true way first Combine one of your ideas/hobbies/skills to find something that you care about and figure out how that can be used to solve another person’s problem.

Here’s what to do: Create a simple website You don’t need any web or tech skills to make this happen.

Affiliate Marketing

Wealthy Affiliate will assist you in this for free and will also walk you through the steps of using social media to advertise your blog

With Wealthy Affiliate, training is provided on how to identify your niche or the topic you will build your website around. And they also offer the tools techniques and information to assist you in developing your idea.

After you have decided on your niche,  then it is now time to build your website,  Your website will be the foundation of your business.

This is a very important step everything you do, all your content, traffic rankings, and your revenue will be generated through your website.   

And do not think you have to be an expert in any subject because what you will find is as you start doing research of the subject of your niche you will gain knowledge and you yourself will become an expert in the subject you have chosen.

At Wealthy Affiliate you will be taught how o draw traffic to your website this is a very important step because traffic is what will make your website a success. And please remember like any other business it will take time.

Monetize Your Website

Then you will be taught how to monetize your website to make money. You will be introduce to different affiliate programs like amazon, share a sales ppc etc

I am not suggesting youwill make money over night but in time you will be able to generate a passive income and as I mentioned before you can join Wealthy Affiliate for free there is no time limit as  to how long you can enjoy your free membership but I would suest that you upgrade to premium.

With a premium membership comes a lot more information and tools, maybe you can do what I did.  Joined for free for about a month I created my website looked around for a bit liked what I saw then upgraded to premium . I am enjoying the learning process.

I knew nothing about online marketing, but I am learning I have been a member dince april of 2018. I have not reached my goals as yet but I am on my way as I said this is not a get rich quick scheme it takes work dilligent and effort.
