Start Your Money Making Machine Today

Oct 23rd 2010 at 4:36 PM

There are a lot of different ways to structure your online business machine. Your challenge is to choose a system you feel comfortable with, and then stick to it! I know, having spent several months reading all the excellent material available. My problem is that there is too much information, and I only have so much time. So, let me share with you my own system, and how I FINALLY got started on the least amount of money!

First, a disclaimer: I cannot guarantee anything. I don't know you or your situation, your skills or your talents. What might work for me might or might not work for you. I also assume that you do not know a lot about the technology. The way I learn new technology is to keep reading about it. Eventually the terms become familiar. So hang in there!

The core of my business plan:

I have a blog-based website, which stores opt in data to an email list. My autoresponder service sends emails to my email lists. The emails contain links to buy information products from my web site, where my merchant account collects and stores the money. I must decide how to spend all this money <grin>!

Stay with me! I will explain…

Notice the heading of this says "Start" today. Get some momentum going right now and just do it! Here we go.

Blog-based website. I use WMT Hosting for my website, unlimited disk space, storage, bandwidth, and domains USD per month. Want your own host? Make sure your host has cPanel. This is important, ask them. cPanel makes creating a WordPress blog easy!  I use to register my domain names, about $10/year per name. is an example of a domain name.

Opt in data. This is the box where you are asked to enter your name and email address. When you click the button, your information goes through an Autoresponder service, mine is WMT Hosting.  Your autoresponder captures and stores your visitor's information in an Email list. Program your autoresponder when to send emails to your list, and it works for you 24X7. In your autoresponder email, be sure to have a link leading to a sales page on your web site.

Merchant account. When your customer buys your product, PayPal is a pretty good service to start out with. As you grow, you will want to get a merchant account which charges less per transaction. That means more money in your pocket.

Call to Action

All the courses I have seen so far start you out with identifying your niche, get your product set up, and on and on. But none of that makes any difference if you don't know how to tell people what you got, does it? When I stopped reading all the strategy and preparation, and got my hands dirty, well this stuff is not that hard!! To read about it is intimidating to say the least. So come on, just do someting, right now. Then tell me what you think on my blog.

"...information goes through an autoresponder service, mine is WMT Hosting..." How much do you pay monthly for hosting and the autoresponder? Is a product of your hosting service or did you pay a fee to transfer your domain to the hosting? "PayPal is a pretty good service to start out with." PayPal has (or used to have) an affiliate program that pays you for new signups.
