How To Start A Small Business Online

Focus on the market, not the product.


To escalate your chances of success from the onset, the trick is to focus on a particular market, find a problem that people have within that market, and sell the solution, rather than choosing a product to sell that doesn’t meet the people’s needs and wants.

People buy a certain product / service for one of two reasons:

  1. That product / service is going to solve a problem that they currently have. For example, as time passes, people are finding it more difficult to go to shopping malls /stores etc because of how busy their lives are. This motivated companies like Amazon to be created to solve this problem and provide us with an easy way to do the same shopping from the comfort of our homes or work etc
  2. Based on their feelings and emotions at the time, people will buy a certain product. Take a scenario in junior sport for example, have you seen when a team wins a big game and the coach or one of the player’s parents take the entire team out for ice-cream or for a meal. the reason why the coach / parent took the team out foor a treat was because they were ecstatic about winning that game so the decided to reward the team.I’m pretty sure that there would have been no ice cream if the team had lost the game.

So my question is, what is easier, trying to solve a problem that a group of people have by selling a solution or hoping that someone’s parent is going to happy enough to treat their child’s entire team to your ice-cream? For me…option 1 sounds a lot easier because there are fewer variables involved in solving a problem and you have control over the solution, whereas with option 2,you are relying on someone else’s emotions to buy your product.

Don’t get me wrong, targeting someone’s emotions is not a bad business strategy, but solving a solution is a lot easier and more effective in my opinion.

Now, you may be asking yourself that in order to sell a solution I need to have a problem first, where / how do I find a problem that I can solve? Let’s take a look below:


Visit Online Forums


Visit online forums like Quora to see what questions people are asking and what problems they are trying to solve within your particular field of interest.

Make sure you read the questions carefully and hereafter choose one that interests you. Then type that same question into Google’s search engine to see if there are more people with the same problem but also to get an idea of what solutions people are providing for these problems and if there are any products / services that that can solve this problem.


Build Your Website in Under 30 Seconds!


Now that you have identified the problem you want to solve and have basic ideas on how to solve it, you need a website where you can share your ideas and solutions to the problem.

Many people think that building a website takes time and effort and also requires a lot of coding….Well…that’s incorrect because you now have access to a platform where you can literally build a website in under 30 seconds!

Try it out for yourself below.All you need to do is to insert the domain name of your intended website and click ‘build’.

Note: a Domain name is basically the address where Internet users can go to access your website. This is usually the name of your company / brand .


Setting Up Your Website


With your free website built and ready to go, there are a few simple yet crucial tasks to complete in order to set your website up and make it ready to be populated with your amazing content.

The entire process can literally be done in less than 2 hours and is further explained in another post of mine.

Learn From the Competition


Your website should now be up and running, but before you start writing your content, you need to visit potential competitor’s websites, observe the methods they are making use of to solve the problem and take notes on your observation.

The trick is to try to identify a loophole in their solution. Then conduct research, fill the gap and do a better job of their work. Some things to look out for when doing this research is to take note of what questions appear in your mind when reading their responses and then trying to provide enough information in your own post that will answer those particular questions as well as providing all the other relevant information.

By answering the questions that appeared in your mind, you have potentially answered the questions of many other readers, which will attract more web traffic to your website and help your site to gain popularity.


Do Keyword Research


After visiting online forums and checking out the competition, do something called keyword Research. Keyword research is used for search engine optimization and is basically finding out how many times a month a particular phrase is searched on Google and how much of competition you will have if you decide to use that particular phrase as the title of your post. Doing keyword research is simple but effective and while it may take more than a few minutes to do, it is worth the time.

The best tool to use for keyword research, in my opinion is Jaaxy Research. This is a simple tool that helps you to identify all that I have mentioned above.

Below is a screenshot of an example of how Jaaxy Research works.

The most important information in the picture is “Avg” which is the average times a word is searched for in a month, and “QSR” which is basically the amount of competition your keyword phrase has. Note:for SEO(search engine optimization) purposes, it is important to chose a keyword that makes grammatical sense and also one that has a low QSR (under 100 is ideal when starting off. But the lower, the better)


Make Your Words Work For You.


Always remember that your website is your 24/7 sales representative and hence it needs to be structured in a way that is going to sell your product to the customers. The important thing to never forget is that as an online marketer, your aim is to genuinely provide value to someone’s life while selling them a product or service that will solve their problems. So be honest, open and persuasive. Here are more in depth points to follow:

Arouse the reader’s interest with a compelling headline.

Your headline sets the tone for your post and if your headline is boring or unimaginative, you automatically lose the interest of the reader and no matter how precise and comprehensive your body copy is, it will not have an effect on the reader.

Describe the problem your product solves

Don’t just tell your potential customer that your product solves a particular problem. Show them how it is used and more importantly show them how it can solve THEIR problem. Try to personalize your copy and make it seem as if you are having a one-on-one conversation with the customer. This extremely important.

Write as if you are conversing…

There is no need to write your content out like facts. Actually people tend to get bored and lose interest very fast when reading text that is written in this way. The simple way to do it is to write the way you would talk to the individual in person. Address them personally and don’t be afraid to interact with them using your text. For example, ask questions to make them feel include and to help them engage with the text.

Establish your credibility as a problem solver

People will close a deal with no hesitation based on trust. I know this can be hard when starting out because obviously there aren’t many people that have utilized your product/ service and therefore your brand trust is very minimal.

The solution to this problem is that when you are describing your product or service, research well-known people in your niche and find out what methods they used to solve the same / similar problem, But don’t steal their idea. Rather, include a snippet of their method into your description and give them credit for this.

For example :If you were to base your content around teaching people how to learn a certain skill in soccer.Then try to find a famous soccer player that used that method or a similar method and include it in your article. This automatically brings about trust between you and the reader because the fact that you researched and found that that particular method works (the proof being that a famous soccer player uses it) ,the reader will then start to gain trust and believe that you actually did your homework and your methods are legitimate.

Add testimonials from people who have used your product.

Show your reader proof that your methods work by including testimonials from other clients that have successfully solved their problem with your product/service.The more people that vouch for your content, the more people that are going to start trusting you, the more sales you are going to generate.

Talk about the product and how it benefits the user

try to talk less about yourself or people in general and talk more about the reader personally, so include words like “you” and “your” and fewer words like “I”, “me”,”they” and “them”. Remember that you are trying to make the reader feel that this product /service is solving THEIR problem, not anyone else’s problem. A great tip is to try to think like a customer and ask yourself, “What’s in it for me?” This will help you to create content around this question and provide a comprehensive solution.

Make an offer…

After you have given the reader a comprehensive breakdown on how your product / service is going to solve their problem, make them an offer. Tell them that to solve their problem, your product only costs $___

Offer a strong guarantee

People may be hesitant about paying for the product/service and that’s where the guarantee comes in.To push them over the edge and make the purchase,you need to assure them that they will not be wasting / losing  their hard-earned money. So include bonuses like money back guarantees or a free trial (you need to obviously keep to your word and do what your guarantee promises).This puts the reader at easy and creates the feeling of being at low to no risk when entering into the transaction.

Create an urgency to opt in

After making them feel at low risk, create an urgency like “this offer is valid for the 1 hour !” or something of that sort that will call them to action as quick as possible.

Ask for the sale

This is where you ask the person to fill in their details, pay and grant them their amazing product.


Drive traffic to your website


When starting a small business online, it is important to drive as much web traffic as you can to you website. Why? Simply because the more people that visit your website, the more sales you will potentially make.

You will naturally gain more web traffic as your website gains authority online and you start to rank higher on the various search engines, but here are some ways to increase your inflow of traffic without having to wait that long:

PPC (pay-per-click)  Advertising

Have you noticed that when you search for something in Google’s search engine, there is usually a small icon on the top left of the first couple results that say “Ad”. This is basically PPC advertising.

What advertisers do (and you could potentially do this too) is that they will use websites like Google Adwords and pay them to display their ad high up on the list of the search results for a specific keyword.

This is a great method of driving useful traffic to your site. The reason I emphasized useful is that when using PPC ads, you are not just throwing your ad out there for anyone and everyone to see. Rather, you are paying for your ad to appear high up on the search results for a specific keyword phrase, so only when someone searches that specific keyword phrase will they see your ad. This eliminates a ton of unwanted / useless traffic and helps you to target those people are actually interested in your type of content.

The price of PPC ads vary drastically depending on what content you are promoting / what product you are trying to sell, but as mentioned in the name, you only pay when someone actually clicks on the ad and not for the time that the ad is listed.(which is very cost effective in my opinion)

leverage Social Media

Social media is another powerful tool to drive traffic your website. Think about it, how many times have you found something that caught your eye while scrolling through social media and clicked it which then took you to a particular website?

Well that’s exactly what you’re aiming to do. You can use platforms like Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and create content that is relevant to a post on your website,but don’t give everything away, give enough information to add value and capture the reader’s attention and then add a link from your social media post to your website post to allow for the reader to click and find out more.This will increase your web traffic.

You could create a completely new social media account and try to build a following or you could use your current account and just try to grow it.

My guess is that you are already creating content on personal your social media accounts,so you can increase the traffic to your website by doing what you have already been doing before, but with a purpose…

Leveraging Online forums

You should now revisit those same online forums like Quora etc.The difference now is that you will be answering the questions pertainig to your niche.So you need to set up an account,research the questions that relate to your niche,and simply answer them

The trick here is to always include a link back to one of your posts where the reader can find out more, and once you have provided value and caught their attention with your answer, they should click the link to find out more about what you have to say on your website post.

This method can also be used on the various social media platforms.


Build Your Own Audience


one of the most effective methods of converting readers into buyers is by building your own opt-in list of followers and targeting them specifically. What this does is that it allows you to target the people that are interested in your content specifically.

Now, an email list doesn’t build itself overnight, it takes a lot of time to actually build a substantial list of subscribers.

the best way to do this is by adding a pop-up whenever someone visits your page, asking them to enter their email address which will allow them to receive emails when you release a new post.

Many people however don’t like to just subscribe and receive notifications, so another way to approach this is by giving away a ‘bonus’ when they sign up, so when the reader enters their email address, you provide them with some sort of bonus that will add value to their lives.So you have provided them with value and  you now have them as a subscriber and can send them emails about your product…

The good thing about email marketing is that you are building relationships with your audience (by addressing them directly in your emails) which then builds trust and ultimately leads to higher conversion rate.


Don’t Lose Your Customer After The First sale


Think about this from a brick and mortar business’s point of view. If a customer makes an initial purchase from your store, would you say,”thank you” and let them go away forever, or would you try to provide them with great customer service, maybe even give them a pamphlet on their way out so that they can have something to remember your business by and return in the future.

Even if you don’t give them a pamphlet or some sort of advert, wouldn’t you at least try and sell them one or two other items that might compliment the item they are already buying? Well I for one would.

You see, the hardest part is getting the customer to make the initial purchase and it is proven that almost 40% of customers that bought from you once will buy from you again, so don’t let another potential sale slip out of your hands.

After the customer has decided to make the initial purchase, on your check out page,make them an offer for products that will compliment the product they are buying or give them some sort of loyalty points that they can use when they shop again with you in the future.

This is also another great place to ask if the customer would like to subscribe to your email list if they have not already.


Wrapping up


Starting a small business online isn’t as hard as it may seem, although it does take time and effort. Also,the internet world is evolving much faster than the physical world so the potential to grow online is huge!

My advice would be to get the right training first before trying to brave uncharted territories alone, and for this I am going to offer you access to the training that I did myself when I first started out.

How To Become An Affiliate Marketer Online

Affiliate Marketing is quickly becoming one of the best ways to make an income online, simply because once up and running, it offers you the opportunity to generate an income at your own pace and you could potentially even make it a form of passive income.

Now although affiliate marketing is not a get rich scheme and requires time and effort, it is a very profitable industry that pays in the long term.


A Quick Intro To Affiliate Marketing


Affiliate marketing is basically when you promote other company’s/individual”s products or services and earn a commission from every sale made through your affiliate link.

For those that are still a bit confused about what exactly affiliate marketing is and how it works, this article will help to catch you up to speed and hopefully put things into perspective for you.


Choose Your Niche


You may have noticed that choosing a niche (interest) is the base too almost anything related to affiliate marketing. This is because your niche is your foundation, and without a foundation, you will be building without direction (basically making very little to no progress).

As an affiliate marketer, your niche determains what direction your website will be heading in, who you will be targeting and most importantly, what products you will be able to advertise.

A big mistake that a lot of people tend to make is that they try to target a very broad niche, for example : football/soccer(in general) , because they feel that they will be able to reach a larger audience and generate more sales.

This is incorrect because all you are doing is throwing yourself into a sea of competition.

Think about it, if we were to break the ‘football/soccer’ niche down into smaller niches, we would get :

  • Soccer boots
  • Soccer gloves
  • Soccer balls
  • Soccer drills and training
  • and the list goes on….

The thing is that even the above niches are still a bit broad, for example :you could break ‘soccer boots’ down into something more specific like “Nike soccer boots” or “Adidas Soccer boots.”

Now think about how much less competition you will have online if you chose “Adidas soccer boots” rather than just “soccer/football”.

However, you may be asking yourself,”What is online competition and how does it affect my sales?”

Let me break it down like this, if you were to search the term “Adidas football boots” in Google’s search engine, which sites would you be most likely to click on? the first few sites or maybe the ones on the first page, right? Online competition is basically when you and other websites compete to get your post ranked on the first page when someone searches for your product or something related to your product

In my opinion, the more specific and targeted your niche is the better chance you will have of gaining success in affiliate marketing

…oh and don’t worry about your niche being too specific, there are about 4 billion people that use the internet these days, so there should be a good number of people who are interested in your specific niche.


Learn From The Experienced


when starting out, it is crucial that you get the right training to help you actually progress and become profitable. Many courses on the market are advertised to help you to ‘start your own online business’ and in reality when you join the course, it seems like the instructor is speaking gibberish. This does 2 things to you:

  1. It demotivates you and makes you feel like you are just not cut out for the online industry (which in my opinion is about 95% of the time not true)
  2. It makes you feel like quitting on your dreams there and then and continuing with your previous life

All because of what? All because the instructor did not break down certain abbreviations or explain how certain systems work. I can relate, it’s pretty intimidating when you hear things like ‘SEO’ or even ‘web host’ for the first time

To be honest, I was bowled over by these term early on. While I didn’t take may courses, I watched a lot of YouTube videos and would have to randomly stop the video and search what a certain term meant (which eventually became very annoying as it would take terribly long for me to finish a single video)

the great thing is that once I found Wealthy Affiliate, I was amazed by how simple their course is and Kyle, the co-owner, simplifies the tutorials for beginners, which for me was big plus!

Check out my Wealthy Affiliate review to learn more about the company and why I recommend it for starter affiliates


Research Affiliate Products and Programmes


what you now need to do is see which companies within your niche have affiliate programmes.

A quick way to do this is to search phrases that apply to your niche on Google (so for example,”what are the best soccer boots to wears as a defender”) and then visit a few websites to see what products they are promoting. This will give you an idea of which companies have affiliate programmes and what are the best products to promote.

Alternatively, you can simply search a specific company to see if they have an affiliate programme, but I would suggest going with the first option because you could potentially come across products that you weren’t previously aware of which broadens your spectrum of products to promote.

When starting out, it is always good to associate yourself with affiliate networks. These are basically websites that host affiliate programs and you as an affiliate can promote the products directly from the affiliate network. Here are some advantages of signing up to affiliate networks :

  • You only need to sign up once– you will only need too sign up to the network itself and not each individual programme that is on the network. This saves a lot of time and effort.
  • Discovering new products– the affiliate network will potentially host many programmes under your niche, giving you the opportunity to find new products to promote.

Here are some key tips when choosing an affiliate network to join:

  • See what type of affiliates use the network– It is always good to use a network that similar affiliates are using as this shows that that network is proving to be lucrative for your specific niche.
  • Check how much of commission you will receive– (for a break down of how much of commissions you can potentially earn with affiliate marketing, check out this post.).I would however recommend higher paying networks (for obvious reasons).

It is Important to note that you should always promote products that you can stand behind or have majority positive reviews because customers are going to be making a decision based on the information that you feed them. If you feed them false information and they end up being unhappy with the product after buying it, they will lose trust in you and go to your competitors.

That’s why in my opinion it is better to promote fewer products of greater quality than more products of lesser quality!


Build Your Sales Rep…


The best sales representative to have online is your very own website. Now if you took my advice earlier and signed up to Wealthy Affiliate, you will be able to do this with ease and in a matter of a single afternoon or less.

Here’s a simple breakdown of how to build and set up your website in a matter of and hour or two:

  • choose a domain name, type it into the allocated space, click ‘build my website’ and watch as your website gets created in under 30 seconds…try it out below for free!
  • follow the step-by-step tutorials on how to set up and get your website ready to be populated by your amazing content. Check out this article to find out more about how to build your own website in a few simple steps…


Create Your Content


Let’s start with the cliche but true saying,”content is king”.

You see, as I’ve mentioned earlier, your website is your sales rep that never stops selling and the content you write is your sales rep’s tool to close potential clients. This means that you always need to produce high quality content in order to continuously convert your potential customer into buyers.

Another perk of constantly producing high quality content is that it will help you to gain authority within your specific niche. This means that you will be considered ‘knowledgeable’ within your niche and not some fly-by-night character trying to scam people. It makes reader’s trust your content which in turn leads to generating more sales.

So what’s the best content to produce?

let’s take a look at these 2 types of posts below:

Product reviews- In my opinion, product reviews are just about the most powerful way to produce high quality content while being able to sell you product upfront. What I mean by this is that you will provide value to someone’s life by giving them your honest opinion about a certain product, its pros and cons, and whether you recommend the product or not.

This builds trust between you and the reader which is imperative when trying to convert and make them buy the product.

For product reviews, you may want to try to buy the product / service first in order to provide the most value for your readers.

Blog Posts- Blog posts involve your typical articles that explain to people how to use the product or just general information about the product. The trick here is not to directly try to sell your product (people don’t like being sold),so what you need to try to do is pinpoint a scenario in which your product becomes a need and educate your reader’s on that.

Let’s take baking for this example. Now lets say that you are trying to promote a baking machine. What you will want to do is write a blog post on how to bake a cake, and within the blog post, mention that it is necessary to have this specific baking machine to get the right consistency of the dough etc.(you get the point).


Promote Your Product


After you have created you captivating content, you want to add your affiliate links within the content.

For those that are still a little confused about what an affiliate link is, it’s basically the link that the company gives you upon signing up for their affiliate program. It is used to track the people that buy through your content so that you can be accurately paid.

(Without an affiliate link, you are basically writing for charitable purposes)

As I’ve mentioned before, don’t try to directly sell your product, so with regard to affiliate links, you should never paste them all over the post, for 2 reasons:

  1. Your customer will lose trust in your review/post because they will realize that you are only trying to sell them the product and don’t care about adding value
  2. This messes with your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) rankings as Google will think that you are only out there to sell the product and will give you a low ranking. Note, Google has algorithm that can detect whether your post is actually of high value or whether you are just writing to make money….and they obviously rank better content higher

Side Note : SEO is basically a tool that helps you to get ranked on the various search engines an is further explained here

One or two affiliate links in strategic positions within the post should be enough to make your customer click and buy the product. The trick is to embed your link in the correct positions.

Personally, when writing a review, I would embed my link somewhere in the main body copy of the content and then also make an offer and embed the link in my conclusion.

Note:when embedding you link within the body copy of your post, try to use in-text links. These are normal words that have links attached to them and when you click on them, they redirect you to another page.

Another way of adding your affiliate link to your content is by using banner ads. Your affiliate program generally comes with banner ads that you can use. They also generally have your link pre-attached within the code of the banner. Otherwise, they should give you the option to paste your link into a search bar that will generate a new code with your link in it.

Banner ads are images that look something like this.(quick note, hover your cursor over the ad and you will see that you have the option to click it, indicating that it’s a banner ad)

Another place to add your link is within your email offers. Write an email, tell a story and then paste your link in between. The key is to build trust first before throwing your link around.

Lastly, when the company is doing a promotion on the product, this is a great opportunity to edit your post and offer them the product at the discounted price. People are more inclined to buy if the product is on sale so use this opportunity wisely. Add value, Build trust, and when you feel that the reader has been satisfied with your content, insert your discounted offer.


Build Your List of Followers


Over time, with constantly providing quality content, your list of followers will increase naturally. What these does is that it allows you to target a more specific group of people that you know for sure are interested in your content and will have a higher chance of buying the product.

Here is a list of marketing strategies you can use to increase your follower’s list:

leverage Social Media-This is a great way to build a brand and create trust between you and your target market. You can use platforms like Facebook, Instagram or  Twitter

In my opinion, what you should do is create content that is relevant to one of your recent posts on your website, and then within your social media content, link back to your web post. This generates more traffic to your website by leveraging your social media.

You could create a completely new account and build a following or you could use your current account and just try to grow it.

Although there are certain things to learn, Leveraging social media is not that complicated, and my guess is that you are already creating personal content on your social media accounts, so now, do what you have been doing before, but with a purpose…

Use SEO techniques to increase organic traffic to your site– Basically, what you want to try to do in order to rank higher on Google is to target low ‘QSR’ keyword phrases when writing content

…what these means is that you need to target and write content on keyword phrases that have low competition (Don’t stress too much about it right now, as it’s explained in depth in the step by step course at Wealthy Affiliate )

Build an email list-This will take time to develop but once you have your email list up and running, you will again be targeting a specific group of people that actually have an interest in your product/service.

So how does it work?

Have you ever noticed that when you visit some websites, before / while viewing the content, a pop-up will appear and it will ask you to enter your best email address to receive either a special offer or a notification every time that website posts new content?

Well that’s exactly how it works. When people visit your site, you ask them to enter their email address. If they are interested in your content they will enter their address and over time you build and email list of all the people that have subscribed.

Now, once they are subscribed, you can send them regular content informing them of your product or service. Again, it is best not to try to ‘sell’ your product directly as this will create disinterest in the product. Tell them a story (a personal experience is even better) and describe how the product helped you in that scenario.

After you provide value and create a need for your product through story telling, then you make the offer.

Note : don’t flood your subscribers with emails…people will get tired of seeing your email pop up every day when they wake up and they might unsubscribe

make use of paid advertising-while paid advertising takes many forms, I would recommend that you start to use it only when you have gained a proper understanding of affiliate marketing and had some solid experience in the field…why do I say this? It’s simple (and I speak from experience),when you are starting out, we are so eager to get our content out there and try to generate sales that we will pay the wrong people to advertise our content for us….and yes, I have personally done this, so take it from me and establish yourself first, then worry about paid advertising.

However, here’s an idea of what 2 forms of paid advertising looks like :

  1. Social media promotions – Basically paying certain social media influencers to receive a shout out on their social media accounts.
  2. Google AdWords (Google Ads) – this is basically where Google gives you the opportunity to pay for your advert to appear as part of the search results when someone types in a specific keyword phrase (so you pay for your ad to appear under a specific keyword phrase, which gives your advert more exposure and should generate more traffic too your site)

    My Advice


Shew!, that ended up being a bit longer than anticipated but that’s my complete take on how to become an affiliate marketer online.

That being said, you now have the theory behind becoming an affiliate marketer, and the hard part awaits you…actually converting the theory into action

Many people will read this article and not take action on it just because affiliate marketing requires some time and effort to set up and get running. If that’s you, it already indicates that you don’t want to become financially free.

Think about it this way, if you really crave for one specific snack but you don’t have it at home, you will make the effort to go out and get it, right? So if you really want to make a better financial future for yourself, then you will put the hours in and work hard now, so that you can relax later.

As an affiliate marketer, you will be constantly writing content, providing value and marketing yourself on social media…its a continuous cycle that requires hard work and dedication, but the reward of potentially making money while you sleep is worth the time and effort(in my opinion.)

As always, If you have any questions or queries, you can simply scroll down, type your comment/question in the text box and I will get back to you ASAP.

Step 4:Promote your website….


Again, it’s as simple as following steps , copying and pasting links. Alternatively, if you already have a product, you can write your content in a way that promotes your product and generate revenue in that way.

But again, don’t stop there, if you have your own product /service,leverage your website by making use of PPC ads (pay per click advertising)  or even promote other products (through affiliate links )that compliment your product

How to do this?

it”s simple…

  • Search on Google for products in your particular niche that have an affiliate program (nearly all major brands have affiliate programmes)
  • sign up
  • copy   the link they give you and paste it somewhere that fits in  your content(usually it’s towards the end , somewhere in your conclusion)
  • advertise you post on social media to start getting traffic to your website.Note: promote you post on social media , not your product.Let your post sell your product.Your goal on social media is to get traffic to your website,not  make a sale right away.
  • start earning commissions with every sale

So there’s my personal 4 step process to create, set up and promote your products in under 1 day.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a get-rich-quick method.this is a simple method to start your SUSTAINABLE, LONG-TERM business online.
