Step by Step, Online Tip Basics for the Beginner.

A step by step journey
A step by step journey

You need a solid foundation.

You can save yourself despair, frustration and time. Start on the ground floor. Make sure your foundation is strong so it withstands the true test of time. I had a seed planted on my heart to start a home based business. I was oblivious and naive on where to start. I dug in fast. The majority of 'home' business or 'affiliate' sites promised wealth fast. I had more information in my sight then I could handle and none of it made any sense what so ever. I am shocked I am still here. The majority of on line job seekers walk away at this point. (CNN January 2009). I can relate. It can be overwhelming. Everyone wants to give you the best deal. Many swear this is the way to wealth, fast, My advice, run if you hear wealth, fast.

True wealth is an inside job. Riches will not get you there. They are temporary. Building a home is a process. It takes time and perseverance. I trusted others rather then trusting God. I was vulnerable. I was in fear about the declining income.Fear give room for the enemy to edge in with lies and decipt. I did not listen to the small still voice within.

It was but for the Grace of God I had little money to invest. He was keeping me from the wolves online. Wealth comes from one source. The Lord and Savior. When we trust in him he will provide, he will pave the way. I am humble and eternally grateful for the gifts I have been given on this chapter in my life. In all this I found that I have a passion to write. God had to get my attention so I would listen to his direction for me. In the falls he picked me up. He pointed me.. In the lies of get 'wealth fast' schemes I forgot what this was all about. It is about serving God. It is about helping others along the way.

Simple Tips for an Online Income.

If you do not have a simple E-MAIL address, get one . If you believe you are going to pursue a business you will want two email address's. Keep the names simple and if possible keep the business e mail relevant to your domain name. People remember duplication easier. Keep the name simple, but be clever. Do not be boring. Your name wants to stand out You want to be memorable but not overpowering. You will be typing the address allot. Google is by far the most generous with free resources and tools for the marketer of any level. You must have an e-mail address with them to use thier resources. Email address's are FREE. Go to your favorite search engine MSN, GOOGLE, OR YAHOO and sign up for e-mail. The majority of you know this but I do not want to miss anyone that is remotely thinking of marketing on line.

This is a BIG one. STAY FOCUSED . There were many hours I spent on line and I did not come close to completing the original task. Then I had more unfinished projects. Start one task, complete it. You can always go back and edit or change. Focus.

Do you know what you want to market? (YOUR NICHE) Health Food, marketing tools, e-books, travel. beauty products, clothes, music writing, dancing ? The sky is the limit. What is your heart telling you? What are you good at doing? Do you have a passion for something? Gardening, Hockey, Writing, Parenting, Health Food? You will save hours of time once you have an idea of what you would like to market. Do not jump on the band wagon for several items at once to market. Remember whatever you market you take you with you. Your personality and passion will bring others to you that have the same interest. You can always go back and add items to your business. Search your heart, mind and soul. This might be a good time to practice on the interne t. Do some research on your Niche. Look at a few websites or blogs. Feel around. Do not jump on the first offer. Think it through, go back if you can not resist.

Think of a Domain Name for a business you would like to see succeed. Keep it simple and memorable. You will type it many times over.Today I can laugh at my first domain name( a website or blog name) It was long and boring. I paid $79.99 for hosting for one year, so once I paid for hosting it was impossible to change the name. Think the domain name through. I could have deleted the site, but choose to keep it and reflect on the good news. I have come a long ways since that day.

If you do not understand a computer word (domain) look it up on Wikpedia. When you look up a word, then read the definition it sticks better. Read the definition a few times over.

Below is a free e-book you can download. If you would like to listen to the video the information is a valuable resource to have on hand. The book helps you avoid a few pitfalls and gives wonderful reference to online business building. Very Good. Many top money earners, lead generation companies - and even some MLM corporations - are terrified of this information getting into the hands of too many people (it's already been downloaded by well over 150,000 distributors) and have taken steps to have it banned --permanently. Grab your copy now before it's too late! ' 'The 7 great lies of network marketing", by Ann Seig.

A journey is a process. I thank God for his grace, knowledge and wisdom That my friend is something no one can sell or take from you. It is an inside job. God was molding me for his plan. I have a purpose, just as you do. I fell down and he picked me up. I went on my own knowledge and availed little. It was when I surrendered to him that the plan started to unfold.

When I was weak, he was strong. I am learning to listen to the small still voice. The best teacher. The journey moves along. I look forward to a wonderful future all for his Glory.

These are the most difficult and challenging of times we live in. Greed and sin took us there. Things will not fix us. The most important step is stepping out with God. He is the way,truth and life. He does not lie. So listen within and he will direct your path.

God Bless you on your journey, remember he is large and in charge. Hugs.

      Some good thoughts here. Yes, working and earning online is possible, but only with care for the scammers abound everywhere in cyberspace.

      If it is going to cost more than, say, $100 to start up your new business online (outside of a computer and internet access) walk slow and look hard. There are probably better ways.

      I like the line "the most important step is stepping out with God"...often when I try to look for information on the internet, God reminds me that the best intuitive information I can get from I have to remember to keep going back to the Source. Blessings
