Online Success On A Shoestring Budget
Online 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
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
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
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.
