“Websites promote you 24/7: No employee will do that.”
Morning!! It is a very good idea of summarizing all of my web development tools and other online resources to provide an entire one stop solution for mounting our business and especially for start-ups.
I realized most people have a hard time when trying to start their own online make money business journey, you don’t know how to start, what tools will you use to help you get started, how much time you will invest in this doubting business model, how do you make money? I hope my own experience and writing here could help you get started and understand the overall concept of the online marketing business.
Learning Curve: if you decided to do the most development work by yourself alone, there will be a significant learning curve time involved in it, you might want to first spend some time to learn the needed knowledge for this business journey. Or you have to hire an experienced web developer to help you along the way, this is indeed a better way for you. Check the learning resources at the bottom of the article.
Most important tip: always find proper tools or a good web developer to help you get the work done efficiently. In my past experience, almost anything your do, there is a proper tool to help you get the job done faster. If not, hire a good developer to help you get started. Don’t do anything by yourself, you will end up spending lots of time and still getting a bad design, bug code etc.
Note: All below tools are based on my own past real usage experiences, I only choose the right and efficient tools to help me get the word done faster and better.
I. Initial Planning Scope:
Couple Questions to ask yourself before the business?
1. How much time you have?
Time plays an important role in the success of anything, if you don’t have enough time to devote to it, it is hard to succeed!
2. Is your personality fit to this doubting business journey?
There will be up and down of your emotion in this struggling business journey, you will need the power of persistence and high stamina to prove that you can stay in the game.
3. Are you a business mind oriented person?
Business requires strong entrepreneurship, mindset, and skills, you should be confirmed that you have this quality of making things happen.
4. What is your expertise and how do you use it to make money online?
You will succeed if you do things you really enjoy and keep working hard on it, so knowing what is your passion and how will this passion help others will push your limit further.
5. Do your market research
You should know what you really going to do and understand your niche audience really well, those people that really need your content to solve their problems, improve their well-being, or save their time on work. They should be willing to pay for the services you provide, if your business is not there to make money at first, it is hard for you to survive later on.
6. How do you define your niche market?
For example: if you are selling women lingerie, there are many competitions in the market, you have to find a way narrow down your business model to find a specific smaller niche audience to escape away from the massive competitions in the market.
Women lingerie -> plus size women lingerie -> lace lingerie -> hight quality -> tailor to business class, etc.
Keep narrow down your market segmentation to find the sweet spot where still has the demand for it is the key when conducting the market research.
7. Where do you get the funding?
Let’s face it, if you want to grow your business, hire a good developer and a designer, you need to get some fund in your pocket to keep the business going for a while before you even thinking about making money.
Ways of funding ideas:
1) Find a partner to split the risk of investment
2) Getting bank loan, this is a bad idea since the interest rate is high.
3) Ask your relatives or family to support you, tell them a good story for potential ROE in the future.
4) Crowdfunding if you have a good product to sell
5) If your service is for nonprofit, you might want a nonprofit organization to support you. It is also good for tax benefit.
6) Think big? look for venture capital funding for your business, you have to meet their high threshold!
7) Find a sponsorship when you have some decent traffic and user base.
8) Find an advertiser who wants to spend some money on your site
8. Choose your business model on how to make money?
Most people make the big mistake here, they start up on free services of whatever they bring to the table, but without knowing how to monetize the service or content at first, so they would end up struggling to make money later on. Eventually, if a business is hard to make money, you will lose your passion and the business will be dead soon.
So think about how to make money before even start an online business is a key to your success. Below are 11 ways that most businesses normally makes money online.
1) Membership Subscription: If you have great content, tools that people really want to pay for, then you can build some front end pages to showcase it, and then build a backend register login payment system to make money out your registered users. You should find a web developer to develop a complete website for this business model. This method also applies to sell your business later on, because you have much traffic and registered users as an asset.
2) Information product: You can sell information products to your niche audience, create an eye-catching graphic and persuasive writing script to boost your sales.
3) Selling Tool scripts: If you know some of the coding skill, you can develop your own tools to sell on your site.
4) Affiliate Marketing: You can sign up Amazon, Shareasale.com, and CJ.com for their affiliate links and promote their products on your site or from the social media channels. Even some of the paid advertising strategies.
Note: if you don’t have enough traffic, you may not make much money in doing this type of monetized method.
5) Advertising Revenue: most influential bloggers with lots of traffic use this simple method to make stable passive income online, they apply the AD from Google Adsense network, embed the code in their pages, when users click on the ad link, they got paid a small portion of the advertising fee called PPC(pay per click). There are many advertising platforms online, you can find other advertising integration services too.
Note: if you don’t have enough traffic, you may not make much money in doing this type of monetized method.
BuySellAds builds advertising solutions for publishers and marketers. Sell ads with powerful advertising technology, or buy ads that reach audiences at scale.
6) CPA – Cost Per Action (I personally love this monetizing method): You have to apply to the network, after approval, you can advertise their offers to your marketing channels. CPA means when user taking an action on your ad lead, you will get paid a small fraction of it. Normally, this method paid more than PPC and doesn’t require sales too.
Note: you need the quality content for this method to work for you, the content should be matched to your niche audience and ask them to take an action to your AD.
More Info: backlinko.com/cpa-marketing
7) Lead Generation: your website will be designed as a lead generation tool when users come to your site, they will see the information designed to tailor their mental desires, if they like to get further information, they have to fill out the information to receive your follow up phone call consultation.
More Info: https://www.marketo.com/lead-generation/
8) Business Partnership: talk to your potential business partners about opportunities and referrals to make money together.
9) Referral: Your online presence acting as a piece of trusted resource to attract some customers that are willing to pay you for the services you offered them. Your sales focus is to satisfy their business need and ask for referrals to grow your business.
10) Consultation: If people trust your expertise in their field, they will pay you to consult their businesses and help them grow. You have to show the proof data and experience first.
11) Sell your business: This is my favorite method. If you build some useful tools that most businesses want to use, you have good amount of register users who already paying for your service, your daily unique traffic is decent, many social media mentions, then you can sell your business to the company who really need your services and tools to help them grow their revenue and keep their users retention base, you might end up at selling a good price with a decent profit.

II. Web development process (second part)
11) Web development technical skill analysis
If you want to develop a site other than using the WordPress CMS, then you have to know some coding languages Or find a good web developer to help you get the job done.
Warning: Writing the code from scratch is a bad idea, you will end up fixing the broken code all the time. So always trying to find a stable code of framework that proven to be reliable in the time of history, this will save you lots of time and give you some freedom of breathing room. For example, if you are developing a site using PHP, then you have to choose the stable PHP framework like Laravel, Symfony, etc. I saw most inexperienced developers make these type of stupid mistakes and they end up keep fixing the code which is totally waste of time.
Some of the web languages design guide:
1. HTML, you have to learn this web page language to write text to your browser and give a standard semantic for web browsers like Chrome to translate the content.
2. CSS, this is for your web page design language, after you learn this language, you will know how to design your pages that look fancy and improve the usability. You will also have to learn the CSS mobile responsive framework like Bootstrap to design a better site. If not, you are going to have problems to fix your site mobile responsive issues.

You can learn all those above languages in the W3schools.com
12) Web development tools analysis
“Don’t reinvent the wheel, people already have done it before you“. The fact is that if you want to build something, people already have done it before, so all you have to do is to study what kind of development tools or frameworks they have used, then you just need to implement what they have used in your web development processes to get the job done.

“Brainstorming is a nexus of ideas”
1. “Content is the king” keep writing good content that your users love to read and share it for a reason. Content is like the real estate that keeps giving you the quality search traffic and backlinks. A useful content will always be read and shared by thousands of users. There are plenty of content available online for the same topic, but only a few rocks that stayed in many hearts. Research and write your own ideas which could be helpful in many ways. “Do not make the marketing content, but just wait for the traffic! The aim can be marketing but the information should not sense like that.”
Content marketing steps to follow:
• Take one of your service or product
• Research and find a best popular similar topic using Buzzsumo

• Register with your real name and fill all the fields
• Give an Intro
• Do not be with the intention of marketing your product/service in the first shot

Understand the Information hierarchy: My thoughts on how to read a better book?
1. Investment books
If you are not making money while you are sleeping, then you are doomed to work and sweat all your life. To understand how money and market work is so critical to appreciate your asset value other than the inflation eat off. The stock market is like a sea that river, lake water gathered if you understand how price fluctuates and interest rate work, you might profit from the market likelihood. I strongly recommend any books from Warren Buffet, George Soros and Ray Dalio, don’t read those professor books, but people that have practical experiences and really make a chunk of the money in the market in the past.
Traditionally in most countries, parents rely on their children to take care of them when they are getting old, it is deeply rooted in their cultures which they think it is OK to follow a life style like that. But it actually creates a huge berden on the young people’s liablity and life style, not to mentioned if the economy not doing good, pay check not increase and the inflation rate is quite high today, no wonder most young people today feel huge burder of the suvival and not able to enjoy their life. If everyone start to learn about the investment and doing it when we are young, then we can rely on the market profit leverage to help us when we are retired, then our children can be free of the responsibility and enjoy the life better, I think this is a better society for all of us.
2. Philosophy books
The reasoning, source of intelligent are developed from the ancient Greek philosophy ideas, so if you understand what the philosophy really is and how to think like a philosopher that apply to your real life, you can understand the world in an effective way that helps you achieved things greatly without keep puzzling in your brain.
3. Mathematics books
Most people learn languages as words meaning that taught you how to read, but when you encounter the advance problems like engineering, space science, physics or computer science, you will suffer the understanding difficulties if you just know how to read the words. The math is another abstract language understanding of the most advanced knowledge in the world that you need to master in order to achieve the great things. After all, if you understand the advanced math, you will find yourself adapt to any type of knowledge easily and learn things on your own without teachers in most cases.
4. Religion books
People’s life and culture are deeply shaped or rooted by their religion faiths, so if you understand the world religions better, then you master a universal language to understand how different people think, live by their fundamental faiths, you learned how to think in their behalf and put on their shoes to feel their heart. The world will be a much peaceful place if people understand each other better, they will stop fighting for their beliefs and learned how to love each other, isn’t it better?
5. Psychology books
It magically grants you the ability of how to read people’s mind, you can use to predict the market price, human behaviors, healing depressed people, improve a relationship and study many social issues that will benefit our life.
