The Action Guide is your road map to online business success. It guides you along a proven business-building process, known as...
Content Traffic PREsell Monetize
Learn some business basics before you begin. This information will prepare you for everything you do to create a profitable business.
Find the perfect niche (topic) for your business. You'll do this by researching and evaluating up to 3 ideas, then picking the niche that has the best set of keywords and meets other success factors.
Build your "Site Content Blueprint," an outline of what you will write about and how all the pages fit together to present your valuable information to site visitors.
Evaluate the monetization potential of the niche you selected. This evaluation includes how many different monetization options you can use, and gives you a sense of how much money your business can earn.
Ensure that your site's "personality" suits your target audience. Pick and register a domain name for your site. Your domain name will become part of your "brand," so it's important to find a particularly sharp name, one that's not only available as a domain name but also as a name for the major social channels. Register them all right away.
After you have published 10 content pages, add a new dimension to your presence — social media. Adding sharing buttons to your site enables visitors to engage with you through "passive social" media. Continue to grow your business with more published content, and learn about links.
Once you have passive social set up, and more content on your site, determine which of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. fit best with your niche and audience. This is a longer-term, "active social" media project that grows your reputation ("PREselling").
After you have published 10 content pages, attract and increase traffic to your site through the search engines and other sources.
Begin developing and nurturing relationships with your visitors. You'll do this naturally, as part of the "sharing economy" that connects people, ideas and products/services.
Begin examining the data that tells you who your visitors are. It's important to know who they are (male/female, location, age, etc.) so that you can target your content and your monetization options more closely to their needs and desires.
Start offering your first monetization option. Evaluate its success in meeting the income goal you set for it. Then add another way to earn revenue.
Once you have done all that, "rinse and repeat" steps 6-10, continually adding content to your site and your social media accounts, interacting with visitors and influencers in your niche, and earning an income from your visitors' loyalty.
