How to Build a Profitable Niche Website

Training Module 4 from The Coach’s Corner In this training I’m going to show you how to build a profitable niche website for creating a money-making online business. You can also use this information to set up online marketing for your brick and mortar business. As you follow along with me you’ll discover that building a website isn’t as hard to do as it once was. Years ago you had to learn a software code. Today all you need is a good hosting platform and a WordPress theme and you can launch a website with a few clicks. Along with the relative ease of launching a niche website is the added benefit of being low cost. Years ago because I didn’t know website building code, I paid anywhere from $500 to $1,500 to have a website designer build my websites. Then I had to pay them an hourly fee to add content to my site because I did not know how simple is was to build and add content to a website. With the hosting platform I recommend for novice website builders, your costs to launch a website can be as little as $11.00 for registering your domain name and a few dollars a month to host your website files. If you use a shared hosting platform on a domain owned by Wealthy Affiliates, “SiteRubix.com” your cost to build your website will be zero. Okay, I’m not a rocket scientist but it seems like FREE is a smart way to go when you’re just starting out and don’t know everything you need about how to succeed in a new...

Starting Online Business? Watch Out

Are you interested in starting online business? Years ago when I lost my business and home in a painful divorce and couldn’t get a high enough paying job I determined starting online business was the way I would learn to make money from home. As so many others have, I got stung a few times with internet marketing scams. Ouch! In this article, I show you what to watch out for. How to Tell If You Are About To Be Scammed I’ve been making a good living with affiliate marketing and an online business at home since 2009.  But it wasn’t always that way.  In fact, when I was first starting online business, I lost money on a few internet marketing scams. It was money I could not afford to lose but I figured it was all part of my learning what to do to achieve online marketing success and mostly, what not to do. You’ve probably seen some of the same marketing schemes or been flooded in your email inbox with giant ads and annoying videos promising you the moon and the stars if only you sign up for their one-click wonder program. Most of them make it look as though you don’t have to do any work and you could be the next internet millionaire.  They promise mansions and endless vacations and all the expensive toys you’ve ever wanted. Here’s an actual screen shot I made for you of yet another internet marketing scam. Let me break this down for you so you can learn how to avoid internet scams. I want to help you do that...

6 Steps to Earn Passive Income Online

Once people hear that I make my living with online marketing, the question most often asked about is “how I make money online”. “Do I trade time for dollars or do I earn passive income online?” The answer is, I have a six-step model to earn passive income online that I will outline for you in this article. There are dozens of ways to make money online and just as many ways to earn passive income online. All you need is a computer and a laptop connection. Some ways people make money online requires full-time effort in a direct trade off of time for money. Other ways are purely passive meaning you put in a good deal of work upfront to build your business structure and then you get paid multiple times for the work you’ve done to create your work product. Online Marketing Until 2010, most of my adult life was tied into trading time for dollars. I tried a few online virtual companies but they fulfilled neither my purpose nor the passion I have for helping women make money by starting their own online business at home. There is no right or wrong about that way of making money but I always found myself feeling overworked, under compensated and unsatisfied. I have worked at a number of jobs but none brought me the kind of fulfillment or income that I enjoy today. You can read the details of my story, but in a few words, I was tied to my brick and mortar business trading time for dollars until a few years ago when I lost everything...

Build Your Own Online Business-Create Your Website

Learning how to create your website is step two in my series of “Build Your Online Business”.  If you’ve been following this series, you’ll know I told you there are four basic steps to building a successful online business from home.  Choosing your market and niche is step one.  Create Your Website is step two. Many people are confounded when it comes to how to create a website from scratch. It’s no wonder since creating a website requires specialized software.  Creating a website used to require complicated knowledge of how to code website software.  Years ago novice website builders had no choice but to rely on website designers to build their sites. I’ve been coaching business owners for ten years.  Until a few years ago, I fell short when it came time to helping a business owner take their business online because I thought building a website was complicated and expensive. It seemed like one gigantic puzzle that I had neither the brain power nor the skills to figure it out. Fast forward to today and I can confidently say, I am fearless when it comes to building a website and you can be too.  In fact, not only have I created AskCoachRebecca.com, I have created over a dozen money making websites. “I am fearless when it comes to creating my own money-making website.  With my “No-Fail” system you can be too.” You’ll find  more detail about each of these steps in my Getting Started Guide.  This post is intended to be a simple overview.

Build Your Own Online Business-Choose Your Niche

“How to Choose Your Niche” is Step 1 in my series about how to build your own online business from scratch. In my last blog, “Build Your Own Online Business-The Big Picture”, I told you there are four big picture steps to building a successful online business. Here’s the simple business success formula I showed you in the last post: What I want to help you understand a little better today is Step 1 of the process: Choose Your Niche This may be a stupid question, but I’m going to ask you anyway; Do you like to shop? Most people do. People shop in different ways.  Some are window shoppers.  They like to look but they’re not ready to buy anything.  Others are mission shoppers.  They know exactly what they want. Mission shoppers go directly to the stores that have the merchandise they want.  They examine the product, compare the price and ask the sales clerk a few questions.  Then, if they like the product and believe they are getting a good deal, they pull out their credit card and make a purchase. Mission shoppers might buy snowsuits for their toddler, acne cream for their teenager, backpacks, tennis shoes or games for their twelve year old. Mission shoppers buy electronic gadgets, cosmetics, hair products, shaving products, jewelry, and housewares.  They buy automotive products, camping gear, sporting equipment and whatever else you can think of. They make investments, start businesses and buy success products. Millions of mission shoppers need your help.  Everyone wants to look good, feel good, have better relationships, more success and more money in their life.  That...
