How to Start an Online Business from Zero in 2020.
Join me and 360,000 monthly readers to shift from an employee to the business owner, scale your website(s) like a startup, and make $10,000 in 90 days – all while working full-time.
I can sum up everything I’ve ever learned about starting and running online businesses in one sentence:
Work Like a Startup, Not a Hobby.
If you want to learn how to start an online business to make life-changing money, you need to stop writing and start developing systems to scale your website like a business, not a hobby.
I manage content teams in high-growth online business environments. And what did I learn?
You need to scale.
Since 2005, I have added over 10000+ content pieces (aka articles or blog posts) to multiple websites and have published over many 80 high Domain Authority guest (or sponsored) posts. In 2019 alone I estimate publishing about 550k words of written content so far, or about 8-10 novels worth of content.
The only way to do this is to scale.
By treating my and my customers’ websites like real businesses from day one, I stopped being a passionate hobbyist and became the CEO.
Interested to learn how? We’ll get there.
First, let’s face it – most online and passive business advice is outdated.
You’re sold the dream of passive income, all while 95% of online businesses are still failing, and the same “experts” from 2010 are making money online.
These “expert” online business owners tell you to write about your passions, stay consistent, form good writing habits, and create fantastic content. Then, a few years from now, you’ll finally have enough traffic to monetize your website with affiliate links, ads, online courses, merchandize, or other digital products. However.
To grow your online business (website) in 2020, you need to scale.
If you genuinely want to scale your online business (website) like a startup, you need to remove writing almost entirely from your process. This isn’t to say you shouldn’t do keyword research, create outlines, or update your content for SEO – that’s what you need to master. But you can’t accelerate growth writing every first draft yourself.
The entire reason I created this website was to abandon this old advice and update your online business tactics for 2020.
The truth is that not many people know the advanced digital tactics to make it work.
We won’t be talking about income in two years – just 3 – 6 months of hard work and some startup growth tactics, including:
1. Learning how to correctly choose your niche based on market analysis, product demand, and how to sell to businesses (not individuals) to 100x your revenue potential.
2. Thinking like a CEO to focus less on writing and more on scaling. This includes outsourcing specific components of your website so you can spend 100% of your time on what’s most meaningful.
3. Leveraging the correct forms of monetization based on your website’s age and traffic. Plus, how you can make thousands of dollars/month when you’re just starting and have no audience.
There are three primary components to this process:
1. Launch your Website (Online Business)
2. Scale its Growth (Adding Content)
3. Monetize Faster (MVP and Agile)
Step 1: Launch Your Online Business
I’ve launched hundreds of websites (online businesses) and will help you discover your unique niche and value proposition, expertly plan your content strategy, choose the best web hosting, email marketing software, ecommerce software and even a podcast hosting to get started with your online business.
We’ll start out of the gate with an SEO-optimized, fast, responsive informational website built to drive revenue quickly. This won’t be a hobby blog or website where you’re writing about your passions, but an informational website that has 7-figure potential.
Step 2: Scale Your Growth
I work hands-on with high-growth startups, small to medium businesses, large corporates, influencers, content marketers, and bloggers to generate content at scale and grow their audiences.
I’ll help you build your Domain Authority (DA) quickly, write and pitch sponsored or guest posts, participate in link building with influencers, and build credibility in your niche at scale.
Step 3: Monetize Faster
By leveraging certain forms of monetization when you’re just starting out, you can funnel that money into your content machine – accelerating your timeline to passive income.
This passive income isn’t just ads, affiliate programs, online courses, or digital products. These strategies also include real-world consulting you can start from day one.
Finally, I want to stop and say I’m glad you’re here. I deeply value every single person I’ve met through this website.
And above all, it’s my personal mission to help you succeed.
As long as you’re willing to put in the effort, I’ll do whatever it takes to help get you there.
