Don't Get Guru Distracted
Jump in & get started.
Building an online business is not easy as it sounds and there can be a big learning curve. It takes time, passion and focus. You will have to overcome self-limiting beliefs, learn to ignore the haters, and accept doubts and miss-comprehensions from family and friends who will advise you to “get a proper job”.
Everywhere you look a new “guru” or “expert” is offering their Cheat-sheet or course on how they made “seven-figures” in one year and your social media accounts can be overwhelming with all the over-hyped ads.
You don’t need the gurus to start a business that will free you to make money on your terms. The easiest way to get started is to choose a niche and jump right in.
It’s hard work in the early stages, but the true freedom it creates is priceless, and if you stick at it and persevere you will achieve your dream lifestyle 🙂

Expect to work your business consistently for two to three years before seeing a really substantial income, this is primarily as a training period, you can still earn as you learn however just don’t expect life changing figures until you’ve educated yourself.

Join groups and forums in your niche and sign up for training programs, it will keep you motivated and you will have more fun sharing ideas and learning from like minded people.
Focus means figuring out who you want to serve and how you will deliver value to that group.
Who do you want your reader to be? Your content should be structured around your readership, you’re not looking to attract a wide audience, you’re looking for a small piece of a very huge pie.
Concentrate on a specific niche and you will find it much easier to bring value and fun to you’re audience, don’t try to be all things to everyone, this is where many businesses miss the mark.
Choose something that you’re interested in, that way you won’t get bored or tempted to give up when the going gets tough and you will find that in turn you’re audience relate to and trust in YOU.
Create a profile on your favourite social media channel specifically for your business and immerse yourself in it.

You can pay for ads if you have the budget but it’s also a way to build your audience for free.
There’s lots of free training around that will help you to make the most of social media for your business.

This means you will be advertising products or services from vendors that will pay you a commission when someone buys from one of your links. It may sound complicated but it’s an easy process to learn.

You’ve probably heard the phrase and it’s absolutely true.
Email marketing is a great way to generate an income from your audience, so you need to be collecting contacts as soon as possible.
The best way to do this is to sign up for an auto-responder service such as GetResponse, Awebber and MailChimp, however it’s worth noting that MailChimp are not affiliate marketing friendly so you will want to choose one of the others if you intend marketing vendors to your list. You can sign up for free and upgrade as you’re contact list grows.
They have some great features and templates to get you started including a signup form for you’re Facebook Page, so if you don’t have a website you can still grow your list, they also have loads of tutorials and webinars if you need any help.
WordPress have plugins that will add your signup forms to your website for you so you can send contacts to your list on auto-pilot.
