4 Ways To Kickstart A Profitable Online Business… Even If You’re Not An Expert Yet
Written by Chris Odinkemelu
Do you really have to be an expert to make money online? Every single day, I see this question asked by a lot of newbies, and it’s a valid question in my opinion.
In life, if you want to earn a living in a particular field, you have to be knowledgeable in that field.
The field could be engineering, computer science, medicine, architecture or anything else really.
And unless you know what you are doing, you can’t succeed in it.
So why should making money online be any different?
But there is a difference.
Let me explain:
When I came online 6 years back, I had NO CLUE what I was doing.
I had no prior experience selling anything on the internet.
Yet I went on to create 5 different multi-million dollar business and have clients pay me up to $100,000 for my services.
How did that happen?
How can a newbie go on to achieve that much?
The answer lies in a fundamental concept which if you truly grasp, can make you succeed really fast….
You don’t have to be an expert to make money online. You just need to learn something that others want to learn and help them with your newfound knowledge.
You don’t have to be a Frank Kern or Ryan Deiss or Andre Chaperon to start raking big money.
Just learn a skill that others want to master.
Once you do that, you can provide value to others and start making sales.
With time, you can develop your skill sets which will help you provide more value and make more money.
That’s how I went from being a complete newbie to becoming the youngest & highest paid entrepreneur in the home business industry.
You see, the Internet has given us a HUGE ADVANTAGE.
In the past, if you had to make a living in any field, you had to COMPLETELY MASTER it before you can do so.
But with internet, that’s not necessary at all.
You can choose a small niche subject to master and make a full time living by helping people with that.
If you were to become a doctor, you have to finish medical school and get a license to practice.
On the internet, that doesn’t matter.
If you know of a good way to get rid of acne on face (let’s say home remedies), you can create a full blown website around that topic, give people lots of information regarding it, promote your product as a solution to their problems and start making sales.
How awesome is that.
When you focus on a niche subject and become knowledgeable at it, you will be looked upon as an expert by your audience.
Why? Because you are helping them SOLVE their problems.
The same concept applies for building a business in the internet marketing & home business niche.
Master a skill and start using it to kickstart your business.
Here are a few ways you can do that:
1. Learn How To Use A Particular Traffic Strategy
There are so many traffic strategies out there which you can master – Solo Ads, Facebook Ads, Youtube Ads, Banner Ads, etc.
When you get good at any particular traffic strategy:
You can simply use it to drive traffic to various affiliate offers. There are many programs out there with well developed funnels. You can become an affiliate for those programs, send traffic and let the system make the sales.
You can help others learn more about the traffic strategy that you have mastered. You can write articles, blog posts and emails to give value to people. When you do so, people will look at you as an expert and take your recommendations seriously. You can make relevant offers to your audience and make commissions.
You can create a quick information product using your knowledge, hire out a copywriter to write a great sales letter to sell that product and start promoting it. You can make lots of sales this way.
You can offer coaching programs to people who want personal one-on-one help in getting traffic from a particular course. There are lots of newbies out there who would be glad if someone could take their hand and show them how to setup a traffic campaign properly. You can be that person.
You can offer done for you programs where you setup the traffic campaigns for your clients and get paid for your efforts.
As you can see, when you master ONE thing, you open up a lot of avenues to build a profitable online business.
2. Learn How To Setup Funnels & Blogs (Tech Stuff)
Marketers need to have their own funnels to make sales more effectively.
The problem with most marketers is that they are too overwhelmed and scared to build their own funnels and blogs.
This is where you can come into the picture.
If you know something as simple as putting together a good lead capture page…
Or setting up a Wordpress blog on a domain
Or making a full fledged funnel using point and click programs like Leadpages. Clickfunnels…
You can help people set that up (through coaching or done for you services) and get paid nicely for your services.
In fact, there is an incredible amount of free training available online how to setup funnels and blogs.
If you don’t mind a bit of elbow grease, you can master this skill and start providing your services (you can find people on social media who need your help or you can pay someone to run Facebook Ads for you to get clients).
When you get good at it, you can even outsource the work and start scaling your business.
3. Learn How To Write Content (Blog posts, Emails, etc)
No online business can succeed without creating quality content.
Marketers need to create either blog posts or emails to educate their audience and turn them into customers.
When you master this skill, you can offer your services (done for you, coaching) and get paid for it.
You can even create your own info product and make sales with it.
4. Learn How To Use Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
Social media is a very powerful tool to connect and network with like-minded people.
When done correctly, you can use that to promote products with ZERO advertising costs.
Most marketers have no clue as to how to use social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter or Instagram properly. Instead of connecting with people and providing value, they resort to spamming their links which produce little to no results.
Now if you invest in the right courses and master the art of social media marketing, you can use that to teach other marketers how to do the same and charge good money for it.
A lot of people would LOVE to take up your offer.
As you can see from all the above examples, you don’t really need to be a complete expert to make money online.
You just need to be good at something which is valuable to others so that you can use your knowledge and skills to help them out.
If you are promoting an affiliate product or services, it’s not necessary that you need to have results to make sales.
You can piggyback on the success stories of the product you are promoting to market it effectively.
At the end of the day, what people TRULY care about is how they get to benefit from something.
Give them what they need and you will do well.
So get good at something and build a business around it.
When you start making sales, you can use your existing success to build up your credibility and get more future customers & clients.
And before you know it, you will be having a thriving business that is growing every single day.
