How to Start Online Business without Breaking the Bank

by Remi Badozi on November 22, 2010

Online business does not necessarily have to cost you any money to build. I still remember when I was a newbie trying to find my way into the online business marketing world, I was so overwhelmed with all the inconsistent Online Business without Breaking the Bankinformation out there. The amount of information about ‘technique’ for success online was so vast; I had tough times deciding which of the methods to follow. I spent a lot of money buying online marketing guru product launches; some were good but most were just waste of money. Having spent quite a bit of money, I then found out about how to make it online with nil  investment! You can actually earn more money by starting a online business without any cash outlay!
If you are new to online marketing and don’t have any specific area of expertise, the easiest way to start a online business is by Affiliate Marketing. The main resaons I think marketing affiliate programs is the best way to start are because:
• you can create your online business on any topic you want, for example your hobbies.
• you don’t need to create your own products,
• you don’t have to deal with customer service very often
• it is easy to generate huge revenue with affiliate programs
So, before you go and make the same mistakes I made – spending a few hundred bucks on online marketing guru product launches, let me show you easy steps to follow that will surely help you to make your first income online – without investing even a penny! Now, put those credit cards away and let’s start on your journey to success online.

    Sign Up For Clickbank

If you don’t have an account with ClickBank already, you need to sign up for free as an affiliate first at ClickBank.
Clickbank is one of the easiest, fastest, and highest paying affiliate networks that is around today. Once you’ve signed up, you will notice that there are enormous numbers of affiliate products for you to pick from.
Pick a product to promote
Now, go to ClickBank Marketplace and find a product to promote. I am aware that choosing a product to promote can be daunting, to help you decide, you need to ask yourself….. Would you buy it yourself? Ultimately, you should aim for programs (about 5 to start with) you are interested in, topics you can at least tolerate and ideally are passionate about because you are going to have to create some content about your chosen subject – this can be anything, so don’t limit yourself in this stage of your online business
More importantly, you should look for products with a gravity of 25 or more as this is a good indicator that the product is actually selling and has a track record of success.

    Keyword Research

Now that you have selected your product from ClickBank, you need to make a list of keyword phrases that relate to your chosen product, so you can conduct keyword research. The best practice is to look for keyword phrases that have three or more keywords (usually referred to as “Long Tail Keywords”). For example, if you are promoting a product that helps stop snoring, one of your keywords could be ‘stop snoring solution’ etc.
Go to Google’s External Keyword Tool and from your list of keyword phrases, enter your target keyword phrase one at a time and do a keyword search. Preferably, you want to keep keywords that have a global monthly search result of 1,000 – 10,000 searches, you may want to discard keywords that are outside his range. Keep your list of ideal keywords and make note of your target keyword – your target keyword would be the keyword from your list that is the most relevant to your product and has the highest search.

    Build Your Website….or Not?

Quite a number of marketers will tell you that you do not need a website to be able to make money as an affiliate and they are right. You can send traffic directly to the merchant using pay per click, or some other marketing technique that doesn’t require a website. However, because this article is about making it as an affiliate marketer without spending a penny, then I suggest you get yourself a free Blogger blog using your target keyword as the title of your blog and also ensuring your target keyword is in the url of your blog. For example, with our stop snoring solution product, the blog title would be Stop Snoring Solution and the ideal url (if not already taken) would be ‘’ But since that is very likely to be already taken, you can either add: dashes like – ‘’ or add phrases, like – ‘’ or http://www.’

With your blog now set up, you need to write articles around the keyword phrases from your keyword list and insert your product affiliate link into these posts. Your post can include a review post talking about the positives and negatives of your product. To ensure you get paid, make sure to make your links very visible.
