First the term virtual business is somewhat misleading. An online business is a real business; I used the term virtual just to make a point.
You do not need a brick and mortar site to make money online. In fact, you do not really even need a product – at least not in the traditional sense.
If you have an actual product then great; if not, you can create your own. One great way to do that is by blogging. Your blog becomes your product and you use it to get readers and over time sell advertising or other products on your blog.
What are the obstacles in creating your virtual business?
- Deciding on your product. Unless you already have one. Remember your blog can be your product. I personally do not like using Private Label items as your product because there are a lot of people out there selling them and sometimes leaves your consumers feeling cheated unless they are really high quality for a good price. Remember you do not want to build a site full of one time purchasers. You want repeat business and a continued following of your site.
- Building your website. You do not need to pay someone hundreds of to build a site for you. You can easily do it yourself with some of today’s programs. CLICK HERE to LEARN to BUILD A WEBSITE IN 30 SECONDS.
- Marketing or promoting your site. I think this is the most difficult. Look around my site for ideas on how to do that. I can also recommend wealthy affiliate to help you learn to promote your site. They offer a FREE program to get you started. It might be all you need. If you decide on their premium service you get over 1000 training modules and access to their community. Plus website hosting.
If you want to blog for your product there are some ‘secrets’ to doing it correct. The program in #3 can help but if you want to turbo charge your blogging I recommend The Blog Writers Bootcamp at this Link.
