The best way to attract organic traffic, get leads, generate sales and make money online?

What is an Online business?

Online business is doing business by selling goods or products or services using a computer and internet connection working from the comfort of your home or office.

Laptop, iPhone or an iPad come handy to work on wherever and whenever you feel like if you frequently travel from places to places.

Most people are learning every day and picking up the latest skills on how to start an online business after social media has become important in every household. About 98% of the population around the world depend on online businesses looking for ways to earn a passive income irrespective of their regular income.


How is it useful for the common man?

To upkeep and balance unexpected financial expenses and to protect our respective families well being, it is always advisable to try for an extra income by working part-time from the comfort of our home after a 9 to 5 working hours come to an end for the day.

About 98% of the population work on a second income to make their dream ends meet, rather than depending on one job which may prove a threat to your financial income at any point in time.


What should I do to start an online business?

Ø First, you need to have a domain name and hosting to create your website or blog. Branding yourself is the key and to be visible online.

Ø A good lead capture page to collect leads.

Ø Product or services to sell

Ø Email Autoresponder.

Ø Unique content to post on your blog on a regular basis.

To book a domain and hosting for Indian business owners who are just starting up with their first blog or website, I recommend Union Host which offers domain and hosting at a much cheaper rate compared to others. It has customer service from 10 am to 7 pm only. I always book my domains with dot com here as the price that I pay is half compared to that of Go Daddy and other domain register providers, but I do not suggest for hosting services from Union host on a long term as their connectivity is slow and I often get to see my blog page load slowly.

Once if you have a good number of articles and images, I recommend shifting your hosting services to Blue Host, where most of the internet marketers are using it for its flawless speed and 24/7 customer care services.

Secondly, a Lead Capture Page is a page designed to attract subscribers to your product or services and who are willing to give their names and email address to get what products they are looking for to purchase from you. You can even design a lead capture page using your email autoresponder platform and connect it with your follow up email autoresponder messages.

Thirdly, in case if you do not have your own products to promote or sell, then you can be an affiliate marketer for many online businesses. To become an affiliate, you need to register as an affiliate for your niche for FREE and to promote a specific product which interests you so that you can easily promote by writing unique articles for your blog or by sending swipe emails offered by the product owner about that specific product that you can promote and earn commissions. An affiliate marketers’ job is to promote other peoples’ products to the people who are looking to purchase and earn a handsome commission offered by the product owner. An Affiliate marketer is like a business relationship manager between the owner of the product and the buyer.

Lastly, a must-have email autoresponder to send useful tips latest product updates to your subscribers on a daily basis to stay connected them and be in a good business relationship so as to retain them as valuable customers for the long term so that you can introduce your new products from time to time. Mailing them once or twice a week will build trust and belief in them to deal with you. Once they are convinced with your products or services, they might even recommend to their family and friends to be a part of your satisfied customer base which is a win-win situation for you to sell more and more of your goods or services.

When you maintain an email autoresponder, it necessarily does not mean that you have to keep writing them every time. You may write 3-4 weeks’ emails at a time and can even schedule all your ready-made emails at different dates as you wish so that it goes out accordingly as per your set scheduled date and timing.

I recommend the Getresponse autoresponder as it comes with instant chat help services. You can ask instant questions to solve your problems in case if you are stuck to move ahead in setting up your follow up messages in your autoresponder. No need to ask anyone, just their instant chat service is more than enough to help you out.

Last but not least a good content for your website is highly recommended to drive organic traffic this means that better the content more eyeballs on your written information and more sales for your products.

There are 3 ways of writing articles.

1. Get articles written for your blog or about your product by hiring a freelance article writer by paying him or her anywhere from 0.50 paisa to Rs.5.00 per word. The higher the price the better the quality of writing articles which comes with researched SEO and unique writing.

Here are 14 Websites to get freelance article writers for your reference.

  • Fiverr.com
  • Truelancer.com
  • HireWriters.com
  • Upwork
  • Iwriter
  • Flexjobs
  • People Per Hour
  • Blogging Pro

  • Craigslist
  • The Writer Finder

  • SmallSeoTools (Free Software)
  • ChimpRewriter

  • WordAi

Article spinning and rewriting is a good practice if you are not good at English vocabulary and grammar, and would advise you not to use it for long articles as it does not give you a simple, readable and understandable English to many. So there are chances many won’t even read your article till the end. What’s the use of rewriting the same original article again and again and are used by many? You may get a 100% unique article but most likely not readable in simple English so not much traffic to your site and finally no sales.

Writing your own articles is the worth a try…. Why?

  • Because you gain a lot of knowledge by doing research online.
  • You save a lot of money by paying huge money to freelancers.
  • You stay away from losing money to spammers and fraudulent writers.
  • Satisfaction guaranteed.
  • Yes, it’s a bit time consuming, but it’s worth your efforts in the long run.
  • 100% unique article writing.

Start Writing Your Own Articles

3. Even if you are not an expert in article writing, start to write small articles of 300-450 words on a daily basis and make it a habit by practicing every day. Keep in mind that we all write articles to make money online. You can either do this as part-time or full time writing articles for self and sharing valuable information about what people are looking or searching for online.

      Yes, Prantika Ji, I agree with you. Most marketers say that content is king. It's best to practice the original article writing whatever it takes to be. Initially, mistakes do happen for anyone. As you practice, it gets better day by day. Many successful people started from failures and never gave up on finding solutions to their mistakes which made them succeed in what they are today.

      Thank you for the wonderful comment, Mr. Prateek. Yes, due to the lack of article writing, I use to get freelancers from Fiverr to write articles from me. Due to the $5 as their basic rate, I used to get crap articles mostly rewritten on a software, which never gave perfect readable English. So now I have taken up a challenge to write my own articles and share the positive side of writing articles on our own which will give a boom in the long run.

      Online business is gaining popularity significantly. With the competition intensifying, original and high-quality articles will be more in demand. Content should be crisp and engaging and explain the business of an organization clearly. Articles should be concise and grammatically error free. This will help readers stay focused on the thoughts of the content rather than getting distracted by too many typos or grammatical errors. More reads will enable readers to understand and get connected to the central idea of the content. Online business via writing is an important revenue generation a avenue.

      Dear Mr Madhu, your article has given me a good idea of what is online business and why it is important for a common man like me. Your listing of many common tools and your comparisons show that you have done on it. It is a very helpful article for people like me, who has not done digging deep on the subject.

      Hi Madhu sir,your article is really very informative and the way you expressed information in arranged manner it simplifies the data and enhance reading experience. No doubt that you have shared very quality information in your article which not many of us aware of and it is very useful for each and every person who are looking for or some freelance workers to write for their website. Information about the article re writing is really effective because you clearly defined that article re writing is not any good choice and it will only lead to long term failure so as early as we can become aware of this thing at research and then defining in your language with unique idea is only Mantra that lead us for a bright future.
