Building an internet marketing online business is easier than you might think.
There is a lot of data and knowledge that already exists that you can utilize in order to transform a hobby, passion, or idea into a profitable business in any industry.
In this post I’ll discuss some how to build an internet marketing business online and turn that idea of yours into a profitable business, from scratch.
It Starts With a Website
There was a time when you didn’t need your own website to succeed online, and while that may still be true for a select few, all in all those days are long gone.
The good news is that setting up your own website is now way easier than it used to be, and you can get started with a new site in just a few clicks.
While a targeted domain can help you rank in search engines a little more quickly, creating a brandable name (in my opinion) is just as important as having a keyword relevant name. So don’t worry if “perfectdomainname.com” isn’t available. Pick a name you like and you think you can brand into a business, and you’re good to go.
Refine Your Idea
Once you have an initial website setup, you need to site down and iron out some of the kinks in your business idea.
If you don’t know how to find good keywords, now is the time to learn. You’re going to need a good keyword research tool to be able to quickly and easily evaluate your competition and choose the best areas to focus on.
To pick the right sub-niche to start out, you’e going to want to look at the ratio of search volume to competition. Picking keywords with that ratio will help you slide into decent search rankings as quickly as possible.
Find a Revenue Stream
You might find it counterintuitive that I’m listing this step 3rd and not 1st.
The reality is that when you’re first starting out, it’s ok if your revenue options are a little unclear. That’s because there’s almost always an opportunity to earn money from a targeted, traffic generating website.
In fact, you can even leverage your initial user data to help guide you on what products they might be looking for. By watching your user behavior (Google Analytics provides this data), you’ll be able to have them steer you directly into what they want to buy. Then all you have to do is offer it to them!

To scale your affiliate business, you can rinse and repeat the processes listed above, or you can find other related concepts to address on your site and turn it into an authority business.
