New Internet marketers aspire to earn the big money like some of the best-known marketers out there, such as Yanik Silver and Bryan Kumar. However, most of these new marketers have only the smallest ideas on where to start, and a lot of them are not willing or able to invest a startup capital in their online business.
However, it is almost impossible to start an Internet business without spending some money on a simple infrastructure such as web hosting, domain names and so on. Therefore, here is a rough guide on how to build an Internet business starting with $0.The first and most important step to do is to list out all your skills. What skills do you have? You could have picked up these skills through daily life (for example languages), through your job (hands-on knowledge on a specific niche) or from your hobbies (for example fishing). It is most imperative to list down skills or knowledge that you have and might be in demand elsewhere. For example, you love fly-fishing and you do it every day after work. You may build your Internet business upon this: writing an instructional guide on fly-fishing, showing people how to do it, etc. Best of all, you do not need to spend money to acquire this knowledge: you already have it.So, the very first option, if you have nothing to start off your online business, is to earn some money using your pre-existing skills or knowledge. You can give tuition to students on your favorite subject in college, you can teach stuff about your hobby to people who are interested, you can create guides on knowledge or skills you picked up through familiarity and cannot be found in theoretical books.Okay, let's say if you just can't think of any skills or knowledge that people might be interested in. Then, it's most important that you find a practical business model and focus on that only. You can obtain almost everything you need through bartering, web hosting, domain name or credit card processing, to name a few in exchange for your product (if you own one) or services like copywriting, ghostwriting and website designs. There is always some lackluster job that people don't want to do, and you can do that for those people in exchange for things you need. You just need to ask for it.
