Where To Begin Online

Are you ready to begin your online business? Perhaps you have been scammed before and are reluctant to try again.

I have spend several years and many many hours learning from the very best in the business of online marketing. You can read more how I got started with my own online business on my About Suzette page.  It is my passion and desire to become your guide/adviser so you can begin to make money online the honest and legitimate way.

Here at Small Business Online Marketing Guide, I will share with you many things that I have personally utilized and which has made a huge impact on my own online business. Many, if not all products and services I will recommend will be free or at the very least, free to try.

I like to test drive and try on

Many of us would not think of buying a pair of shoes without trying them on first. You want to make sure that they are the correct fit and comfortable right? Would you buy a car without test driving it first? At the very least, I would sit in it making sure I could see over the steering wheel, my feet touched the pedals and  the seats were comfortable for those long rides we take.

When I began looking for ways to work online from home, I was looking for something that I could “test drive” before investing any money or too much of my time into. I don’t have a problem investing in my business IF I am seeing revenue coming in as a result. I will share this information with you in just a few minutes. Be sure to keep reading.

Three major things that people who work online have in common

  • At some point and time, we all need help. I started off not knowing a single thing about online marketing so I needed, and still do, a lot of help and encouragement. It is an awful feeling to begin a new journey in life with the feeling of going it on your own. It is also discouraging when you don’t have a support group to back you up in times of  doubt and confusion.
  • Most successful online marketers have their own websites. Sure you can work online without one, but you noticed I said successful online marketers. If your gonna do it, do it right! Don’t begin by setting yourself up for failure at the very get go.
  • Continued education is another biggy. If you are taking those first steps into the cyber workforce, you are going to need to gain some knowledge. For me, it required a lot. When I first began my journey, I didn’t even know what a blog was! As the world continues to spin, so does the internet. Continuing you education and keeping up with the ever changing times is not only important, it is a necessity.

  1. Thank you Las Vegas SEO. I appreciate that. I will continue to provide information that is helpful, transparent, and honest for all my visitors. I will also continue to be supportive and encouraging to all who seek to begin or maintain an online business presence. This is not my business, it is my passion!

  2. Online marketing is a must if you want to be on top of search engine. Reading this information will help you a lot. I think its a good idea to take note of it.

  3. Hi Andre, I have to agree and disagree with you on your comments. I agree that the training and overall platform at Wealthy Affiliate is mind-blowing good. Best in the world.

    I have to disagree with you about the membership details. Let me explain. Once you upgrade to the premium membership, you stay a premium member.

    Here is a quote from Carson on this subject “When folks leave WA they can always come back by simply resubscribing. To do so they just need to login to their cancelled account and follow the upgrade instructions. We always keep people’s accounts available to resubscribe so that they can come back and pick up where they left off.

    Their WA rank would most certainly drop as they would not be active while they were away, but blog posts, progress in training, and settings will all be available when they return.”

    The websites that you have created here at Wealthy Affiliate will remain live after you cancel your premium membership as long as you transfer to a different host.The guys at WA generously gives you 30 days after you cancel to find new hosting.

    The ONLY way someones time and websites would be wasted is if they themselves allowed this to happen.

    As far as the two free websites that you get when you first start your free membership, You can transfer the content to your own computer, (you own your own content – WA owns the sub-domains)or to another host such as GoDaddy or Hostgator.

    I hope this clear things up for you. It sounds to me like you may have gotten incorrect information in the past.

  4. Hello, Suzette.

    Having worked in computing for almost 40 years supporting sales teams, developing software and web databases, etc, etc, I joined WA and, because their training is mind-blowingly good.

    I like WA, genuinely I do, but they have a major problem!

    If you upgrade then cannot afford to keep paying WA $50.00 every month – you’re out – no access to anything, not even the free account or sites promised FOREVER when you join.

    This is a let down that thousands have now suffered and all their time setting up websites via WA or SiteRubix free sites are now wasted.

    It’s a shame people aren’t told that before joining. Perhaps Kyle & Carson need a rethink on some of their stuff because they say they pay-it-forward but this isn’t.

    May I ask your opinions? Thanks – Andre

  5. Good point my friend. We learn from our parents. We learn from our teachers. We learn from our employers. We learn from clergy. We learn from our mentors. The list goes on. My latest and continuing learning experience is from the training I have received from Wealthy Affiliate all the wonderful friendships I have made there.

    You know Barry, sometimes it is the hardest things we learn that make us stronger! What better way to learn than from the very best Wealthy Affiliate, and with those (the community within) to support us!

  6. Hi Suzette,

    When you think about it if it weren’t for help from other people there wouldn’t be much we would be able to do.

    I was taught to crawl, then walk and how to read. I was taught to be a fitness trainer, an insurance agent (forgive me) and a retail manager.

    The last thing I learned was affiliate marketing which is a work in progress. The hardest part for me when learning is not knowing if what I am doing is the right thing to do at the right time.

    It’s great to learn from people that are already doing what you want to do. If making money online is what you want to do get the training you need and listen to Suzette.

  8. Hi Suzette,,
    Thanks for the link and the chance to look at your website. I like your site, it is very neat and to the point on every page. I have learned a lot and will stay in contact with you.
    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

  9. Thank you for stopping by Mike and leaving your response. Knowing where to begin online can be frustrating and discouraging for many who are looking for a platform to help them begin making money online. Many may share our passion but for what ever reason, never move forward to fulfill their dreams.

    Some people just need a little guidance and encouragement which is why I choose to start this website. For me, it’s
    hearing the words “Oh you will never be able to do such a thing” that makes me more determined than ever to fulfill my dreams. It is the people like you who find what I do to be helpful that encourages me to move forward and never give up.

  10. Hi Suzette,
    A very nice start and I look forward to following your progress.
    I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to learn, and the whole giant community is so helpful and supportive. It sure makes learning easier when you can ask a question of so many people who have been where you are and they help you figured it out !
    The training is also incredible and I can’t imagine a better way to learn.
    Thank you for your work here and hope it continues to be so helpful.
    Regatds !
