Ready To Start An Internet Business

By Brian Tubbs

Just like a brick and mortar off line business, an online businesses main goal is to sell a product or service and make a profit. The best thing is that you don't have to pay a fortune to advertise with radio, tv or newspapers. The truth is you can get free traffic online.
Is it hard to start an internet business? To be truthful, once you have all the information you need, starting your internet business is easy.
Despite what you may believe, or what you have been told my so called marketing guru's, if you want to succeed online you need to have your own website. Without your own site you won't make nearly as much money.
So what's the next step? Once you have your own website you need to figure out what you are going to sell. You can sell other people's products for a commission, or you can create and sell your own products from your own site.
Now all you have to do is to start driving traffic to your new site. This is a little more work than the first two steps, and this is also the most important part about your new online business.
One great way to get traffic is from the search engines. In the next few paragraphs I am going to show you how to get search engine traffic.
In order to start getting search engine traffic you need to make sure the search engines know that you have a site online. This means submitting your site to all the search engines every month. You could also use a service like "Flight Search Engine Submission Service" to submit your site for you every month.
Now that the search engines know your site exists, it is time to start your link building. Links are necessary for two reasons. Search engines use links as votes for your website. The more links you have pointing to your site, the higher the search engines will place your site in there results. You will also get traffic from the links themselves.
The fastest way to start building links is to start commenting on blogs. Every time you leave a comment on a blog you will be able to leave a link back to your website. The best way to do this is when you leave a comment, you are asked for your website url. Make sure you enter your url starting with http:// do not put another link in your comment. Then when your comment is posted your name will link back to your site.
Now that you have blog commenting under control, you can also start posting comments in forums. You simply add a signature to your forum profile, and when you leave a comment your signature is added, giving you a free backlink. So you should join as many forums as you can and post comments or questions on them every day.
That pretty sums it up. You have your own website and you know how to start getting traffic to it, so it is now up to you. The more effort you put into your internet business, the more you will get out of it.
