The ups and downs of starting a Digital Business.

There is quite a lot of hype surrounding the massive potential of starting a digital business. Many people have been extremely successful by doing this and you can see by my website I am very much trying to encourage people to consider this option for themselves.

I don’t want you to be fooled into the concept that this is a get rich quick scheme that requires no effort or dedication to achieve your goals.

This is one of the reasons that I suggest the training and education platforms that I do within this website. There will be obstacles and challenges along the way, however, having access to experts and extensive educational videos will help enormously. Not only this but having a community that you can be involved with to help you along the way. People who can encourage, inspire and answer questions is very important.

As starting any business there will be hurdles along the way which you need to overcome. It can be extremely rewarding however many people forget that it takes time and hard work to start a new business. This is true with an offline business as much as an online business.

It is true to say however that if you stay focused on your goal that there is so much you can achieve with digital business. With all the distractions you can encounter, however, while starting out an online business it is very easy to lose focus on what you are trying to achieve.

This is often referred to as “shiny object syndrome”. Chasing the next potential opportunity that presents itself rather than staying focused on your initial goal or strategy. It is very possible to create multiple streams of income within the digital economy however when you are starting out it is very important to keep a good focus on one outcome rather than to spread yourself too thin and a jump from one thing to another and never achieve any success.

Expect that it will take some time to reach a level of expertise but if you have a good idea of what you are trying to achieve, have some patience and make a consistent and dedicated effort you can achieve amazing things.

There are many people within the community that I have mentioned here on my website that are living proof of this. I am very much appreciative of the knowledge and insight that is offered within the SFM platform and it’s a community helping me achieve my goal of having a successful digital business.

So, in conclusion, I would like to encourage to consider the option and potential of creating a digital business, however, as with anything in life, it won’t come without its ups and downs. You really can be the ruler of your own destiny by learning the skills and knowledge and putting in the time and effort to start an online business.

Getting Started – What you need to know – Is a Digital Business right for everyone?

There is a lot of hype about the potential of the digital economy. Within other posts, I have discussed the vast potential of creating a digital business.

In this article, I will focus on not only the potential but also discuss some of the challenges associated with creating a digital business. Some of the pitfalls or putting things into a realistic perspective.

Creating an online income has lots of potentials. There is a fantastic amount of opportunities that exist.

It may not be for everyone, however. It does require a lot of hard work, dedication, commitment and knowledge to become successful.

On the other hand, if you are willing to put in the yards and learn the ropes it most definitely is very lucrative.

We need to be realistic when starting. It is very possible to have big goals which are achievable as long as you are willing to put in the effort.

Although many people make large amounts of money via affiliate marketing or e-commerce or a niche business, it does take time to build a business.

Initially, it does require a commitment of time and money. The overheads of a digital business are relatively low compared to that of a traditional business, however, there is always some cost involved.

We need to be realistic about the time it will take to get from point A to point B with growing our business.

Please don’t let this deter you from achieving your outcome.  But understand it is only possible with the right attitude, knowledge and approach.

Building a solid foundation and taking step by step actions. The concept is simple but that doesn’t mean it is easy. It also doesn’t mean it isn’t achievable.

I am hoping that I can assist others to take on this journey and succeed.

This website has some useful tools to assist with educating yourself regarding the online world and digital business.

Are you still with me? Let’s keep going. Be determined!!

Before I go too far ahead. I will remind you that I can highly recommend finding a mentor or someone experiences to learn as much as you can from the wealth of knowledge they have.

I have some excellent recommendations on this website. I can’t include every training and mentor that exists, however, what I can do is offer a few outstanding options for you to consider. I will continue to provide information so feel free to bookmark my site for easy access.

What I recommend are platforms I have used that are extremely good. They consist of much more than just knowledge. Step by step guidance along with much more information and tools that will speed up the process and make it so much easier.

The concept of digital business is simple. Put something (a product) in front of the people who need it (solution or outcome) at the right time and in the right manner.

Very simple!! The audience within the internet is massive, we all know that. But knowing where to start can be overwhelming.

This is very much why I suggest the training that I have. I have found it extremely useful. I know many others also who credit their success very much to the mentors and training I have suggested.

Putting all the pieces together – an honest perspective.

One of the common mistakes people make is thinking that it is straightforward to succeed with a digital business.

Many people think that making a considerable income will be comfortable and happen overnight or at least very quickly.

Yes, it is very accurate that you can earn a significant income. This is one of the appealing aspects of creating a digital business.

It is possible to earn a six-figure income and more if you get it right. But don’t be fooled into thinking that it won’t be challenging and require a significant effort.

Again, I don’t want to deter you from your dreams. Anything is possible regarding the digital economy and digital business.

But be realistic about the commitment it will require to achieve this success.

It will very much be determined with your dedication to learning and taking action to grow every aspect of your business.

If you stick things out and overcome all the challenges involved the “sky is the limit”.

Go for it!! but don’t expect overnight success. Build your business from a solid foundation and expect there to be challenges along the way.

It won’t be all plain sailing. Even with proper training and mentorship. Ultimately you will determine your results.

I just wanted to add this as I think it is imperative to understand.

I want to succeed and I want you to succeed.

So, this is why I am writing this article. I would like to believe that I can help someone on the journey of creating a digital business.

What I don’t want to do is misinform you about how easy it is to achieve everything you desire. It is vital that people understand that having a digital business can be very lucrative but is not a get rich scheme or some scam to make money.

You need to create a business out of integrity and trust and offer an excellent service or product as you would with a traditional business.

They don’t always need to be your products or services. They can be affiliate products or a mixture as discussed in other posts on this website.

But having a plan and structure and building a business on solid foundations is the key to long-term success and profit.

Please don’t feel overwhelmed – you can do it!!

With all of this, I could scare you off achieving what you would like to achieve with a digital business.

If you do get involved with any of the training and education I have suggested.

You will be amazed, I indeed was!

Potentially this can change your life. One of the things I haven’t discussed is how inspiring some of these mentors can be. They are successful and know what it takes to achieve this and able to teach and inspire you.

Even such things as Mindset, and creating confidence and belief in yourself is part of all the process that is not overlooked.

Getting out of your comfort zone and a hunger to learn new skills is very much part of being successful in life and business.

Wrapping things up – some topics that will be included within digital business training and also some areas I intend to focus on in upcoming articles and blog posts.

  • creating your niche (this is an important starting point that you can already start considering)
  • overview of making money online. (Affiliate Marketing and e-commerce, or you may have a specific skill such as training or coaching that you would create a business around)
  • staying focused. It is easy to be distracted on the internet. Become an expert in one area or niche.
  • skills and knowledge. Building websites, landing pages, links and tracking, SEO etc.
  • Mindset. Law of Attraction. Believing in yourself.
  • Marketing. Knowing your target market and how to reach them. Tools and methods including Google, Social Media, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter. (you don’t need to be an expert in all of them. Learn to master one and you are on the road to success)
  • Scaling your business. The hardest stage is getting to a point where you understand what is working and not working within your business. Once you reach this point you can scale your business to increase your profit.
  • Sticking things out. Taking action on the steps required to set up your business. Overcoming challenges and obstacles. (persistence and avoiding procrastination)
  • Understanding your WHY? The purpose you started in the first place is a great assistance to keep you motivated.
  • Benefits of a digital business. Creating freedom and flexibility are entirely possible with a digital business. Being in control and not having to work to achieve someone else’s goals rather than your own.
  • Being accountable. You are in control of your destiny with a digital business. It is up to you to create the outcome you desire.

Where to start – creating an online income.

This article is here to assist people to start the journey towards creating an online business and income.

 The digital economy is booming and there is a massive amount of potential and opportunity within this space to create a profitable digital business

Before I go too far, let me suggest that I am still in the process of creating a digital business myself. I am not someone who has had 10-15 years of experience earning money online. Someone who has all the answers and strategies. That said, I have put a fair bit of time over the last few months researching and learning about how this is possible and the fantastic opportunity and potential in this area.

I am learning a lot and would like to share my story with other’s and help them decide if this is also a good option for them to pursue.

A quick overview of why I have decided to pursue this path.

As a person who has worked for a big company for 12 years, I was feeling that I had gone as far as I could with the type of employment I was pursuing. There was limited opportunity for promotion and I was becoming bored with the repetition.

Although it was a secure income, I felt stuck.  I needed a new challenge and was looking to find new ways of creating an income that inspired me.

I felt like I was just working for someone else and not really pursuing my own path and dreams.

As I was living in a small country town, I wasn’t quite sure what to do. There wasn’t heaps of opportunity with employment nearby.

At this stage, I was keen to create an online income but wasn’t really sure where to start. I looked around on the internet as to the possibilities out there. This may be exactly where you are now. If it is you are probably aware of how frustrating and confusing this process can be.

There is so much hyped up stuff,  get rich quick schemes, scams, and quite frankly BS out there on the internet. Possibly you can relate to this if you are on the same journey as me trying to learn how to create an online income.

Eventually, I started to get a few ideas as to the possibilities. I was just trying to create a passive income initially. I could see the potential and although there was some helpful advice on YouTube etc. there was nothing that seemed to put together all the pieces.

Eventually, I discovered some excellent training and support programs to assist beginners and the many people out there with the exact desire as myself.

This is when I  started to be able to take steps toward creating an online business. The training showed me step by step the process and things I needed to do to achieve this. This website is probably the first stage of this process.  It would not exist without the information that I was able to learn.

Learning from the experts and people who had been successful in this area has been the key me feeling like I am starting to get somewhere rather than banging my head against a brick wall.

 

 

So here are a few reasons that I believe the training I have undertaken has been so helpful.

  • helped me understand how I am going to create an online income.
  • what is my niche and area of focus?
  • teaching me the knowledge and skills required.
  • explained the dedication and commitment required to get an online business started.
  • given me a support network to assist with problems along the way.
  • platforms which have the tools to make the process easier.

 

 

 

 

 

The information I will give in regards training platforms can be helpful if;

  • you have an existing business and are looking to expand online.
  • you have no idea where to start however have an interest in developing an online income.
  • you wish to pursue either e-commerce or affiliate marketing.
  • you just want to improve your digital skills and create more opportunity in your life.
  • you are willing to take action.
  • you have a hobby or interest you would like to turn into a business.

If you are serious about creating an online income realise it will take some time. Take a long-term approach as there is definitely an excellent potential to earn an excellent income online if you learn the skills and knowledge required and have a goal.

Here is a bit of information about the training platform which has made all this possible for me. I share this with you as you can also be involved if you would like to learn how to have a digital business of your own.

 

SFM – Six Figure Mentors

This Training and Education was where I really started to understand what creating an online business was all about and where a large amount of my learning has come from.

SFM is an extremely professional learning platform from beginner to expert.  I have only touched the surface in regards to my own learning and what is offered by SFM. This is the top level of training there is in the market of Digital Business Education.

This is for people who are motivated and committed to succeed.

There is so much I could explain in regards how much this training and education platform offers.

Rather than go into too much detail about the training and everything the Six Figure Mentors provide I will give you a chance to watch a FREE 7 Day Video Series that will explain things far better than I can do.

I am very confident that you will find the information within this video series extremely eye-opening and inspiring.
The training and community are all about transforming your life through Digital Business.

Potential of Affiliate Marketing

Many people these days have of heard of Affiliate Marketing, but are not 100% sure what it means.

Here’s a quick explanation.

Affiliate Marketing is a performance-based business model that rewards clients for driving consumer traffic to a particular product or service; in essence, the affiliate marketer earns revenue by driving consumer traffic to a specific product and/or service.

For example if you have a gardening website that has has blog or content relating to gardening.  You may be able to link users to products/books/information/videos etc. that relate to your website. If users purchase any of these you make a commission (These do not have to be your own products)

There are products in almost every niche from pets, weight loss, personal development, technology, sport, travel and almost any area you can imagine. These may include physical products, e-books, how to videos or basically anything that can be sold on the internet.

There are hundreds of thousands of things which have an affiliate program associated with them.

This is where the potential with Affiliate Marketing exists, especially considering the massive amount of people using the internet. Also the wide variety of products and services that can be purchased over the internet is always increasing

There are some people who have made a very large income out of affiliate marketing, and others who have tried but not been able to make a cent. The earning potential as an affiliate marketer can vary from person to person.

One of the biggest misconceptions made about being an affiliate marketer is that it is “easy” money. The mistake many people  go into affiliate marketing is treating like a “get rich quick scheme” rather than a business.

If you have read any of my previous posts I encourage people to undertake in training and education in affiliate marketing to develop the skills and knowledge to SUCCEED. Learn from the experts. Many  have set up programs to assist and teach others.

Like any field your success with be reflective of your competence, strategy, knowledge and work ethic. Refer to some of my other post within this website to get more information regarding this topic.

What most people don’t realise is that you do not have to be a computer expert to get into the field of affiliate marketing. There is a certain level of computer skills you need to learn, but it is not as complex as many people imagine.

There is no question a large POTENTIAL with Affiliate Marketing if you are willing to approach it in the right manner and with a good business sense.

Now that we have a fundamental understanding of what being an affiliate marketer involves let’s look into the pro’s and con’s in a bit more depth.

Benefits of Affiliate Marketing.

  • Anyone can become involved with affiliate marketing
  • Individuals are not required to create the product or service, only drive consumer traffic.
  • The potential of earning an excellent online income, provided you’re willing to put in the effort.
  • You do not have to warehouse any inventory or ship products to consumers.
  • Work from home or anywhere you have internet connection.
  • High volume of traffic and potential customers using the internet.
  • Create more freedom in your work  life.
  • Ability to earn on auto pilot.

Obstacles with Affiliate Marketing.

  • It can take a time to generate enough traffic to make a sizeable online income.
  • Certain affiliate programs may be overly competitive, making it that much harder to turn a profit.
  • Need access to computer and internet.
  • No guarantee’s with income.
  • Cost’s of setting up a business.

BECOMING A SUCCESSFUL AFFILIATE MARKETER

Being an affiliate marketer has proven to be very lucrative for many people, and you could be next, provided you’re willing to learn as much as you can and make a concerted effort to generate revenue for not only yourself but also your merchants. Here are a few tips that will hopefully aid you in your journey towards becoming a successful affiliate marketer:

Choose quality affiliate products that you, yourself can stand by; after all, if a product/service that you promote is of poor quality or efficient, it can be a reflection on you.

  • Research the terms and agreements for prospective merchants as this will ensure that their program aligns with your goals as an affiliate marketer.
  • If you have a blog or a website, consider working with merchants whose products/services complement your brand.
  • It is always a good practice to be completely transparent; inform prospective consumers of your affiliate relationship with the merchant.
  • Leverage the power of SEO and social media to drive consumer traffic; after all, this is very much a numbers game, and the more sales made from your links/promotions, the more online income you can earn in this digital business.

Affiliate Marketing is still in it’s infancy and provides a lot of potential in the future. The skills of creating a digital business can set you up very well. Not only as an excellent income source, however the skills and knowledge will continue to be sought after by many companies and business trying to improve in the area of technology, marketing and promotion.

As more products become available on the internet the demand for digital marketers increases.

Learn Affiliate Marketing

Learning how to generate an income through Affiliate Marketing can be very rewarding and also very lucrative.

The internet creates a massive audience and therefor the potential to earn a great income is very high. There a many thousands of products which have affiliate programs. Therefor there is opportunity within almost any niche you desire to generate commissions on the products you wish to promote.

Although the concept of affiliate marketing is very simple, the process of earning an income is not quite as easy as it initially seems.

Like  going into any career it is important have the right  skills and knowledge.

Many people fall for the trap of thinking that it is very easy to make heaps of quick east money through affiliate marketing without having much idea of what they are doing.

There is a bit more to it than that. It is a business and having the right focus, putting in the effort, having goals and direction along with a good strategy all very important in regards your success.

For this reason patience, perseverance and commitment  are also very important  to succeed at affiliate marketing. You are actually creating a business and as I’m sure you know that creating a business requires a large effort, hard work and dedication.

But in the long run your persistence will pay off, especially with a digital business, as a lot of the hardest work  is in the initial stage of setting things up.

Fortunately there is a lot of information out there these days to help you learn the ropes of Affiliate Marketing.

Many of the people who have been very successful in this area have developed training and education programs to assist others to be successful generating an online income through affiliate marketing.

There are many excellent training programs out there. There is free material along with very professional education and training which walks you through all aspects of getting a Digital Marketing business off the ground.

Which one of these programs which suit you the best may vary depending on a number of reasons.

  • how serious you are about creating an Affiliate Marketing business.
  • your goals – are you trying to create a full-time or part time income.
  • how much time you have to dedicate towards creating  a digital business.
  • how much are you willing to spend on learning the skills and knowledge required.
  • what you already know about affiliate marketing.

 

Whatever your situation, I can highly recommend getting involved with a mentor or training program to help you  learn what you need to know and how to go about setting up your marketing strategies.

 

 

I have a couple of suggestions for things you may be interested in if you are looking to learn more about the potential of Affiliate Marketing, how it works and the skills and knowledge you need.

These guy’s have been very successful in the area of Affiliate Marketing and have developed an exceptional training program.

This is where I started my journey into Affiliate Marketing and setting up a Digital Business.

  • Note – there are many excellent training platforms out there. I am involved with a few of them. One, because I want to learn as much as I can, but also I would like to be able to recommend which ones I believe people can benefit from.

What I have included here is a few free places to start your education. There are many others also which I have not mentioned here. If you are interested in finding out more, please read other posts where I will offer insight into other training & education programs which I can recommend.

Being involved with a training organisation will help you tie all the information together. There is a lot to LEARN.
