Each and every day a large number of new members come to ewebicon.com to learn online business. Actually is it too difficult to start online business, whatever blogging or affiliate marketing or even own business, if someone has not enough knowledge or skill in internet marketing. I am trying to give you a little guideline, how to start. This post is only for newbies.In this post I am not going to show you, how to earn 100$/day using blogging or affiliate marketing. Just try to show you how to start.
(I am not associated or affiliate with any of the sites mentioned in this thread.)
The niche chooses
To start an online business, Niche choose is the key part of IM. If you have own product or service, then its ok but if you want to start blogging or affiliate marketing, then successful niche choice is the key part. If you are a newbie, try to find out a niche that are popular as well low competitive. To start a successful online business this part is the main difficult task.
For this purpose, you need to have few digital marketing skills
1. Keyword analysis
2. Competitive analysis (Check Competitor PR, Domain Authority, Page Authority,
Backlink profile, Social media activity)
Again, think twice before select niche for online business. Again, this is the key to your success.
Registering a Domain
After successfully selecting a niche and keyword, your next part of the work is Registering Domain name.Always keep in mind, a domain name has played a vital role in your SEO.
When registering a domain name, there are few things you must need to consider.
1. Short and easy domain name. A short domain name always easy to remember. 2. Try to buy a keyword rich domain name. 3. Try to buy at .com or.Net or. Org TLD domain. 4. Try to buy a domain name which is easy to remember.
Here is a list of the top domain registrars.
The prices are different for different domain extensions.
Searching for a Web-Host
After buying a domain, you need to find out a good quality hosting which is giving you 99% uptime. Keep in mind, don’t fall in greed to see various lovely hosting offers. Most of the newbie always mistakenly chooses low quality hosting. Keep in mind your online success depends on high quality hosting. If your website is going offline over and over, your online reputation will be
falling down as well your sale will be reduced.
So when you choose a hosting company, you should consider a few things
1. Server uptime 2. Hosting Space (Lot of hosting company offers unlimited, but need to understand nothing is unlimited) 3. Hosting Bandwidth (Lot of hosting company offers unlimited, but need to understand nothing is unlimited) 4. Customer support.
In bellow I mention few world class and the top rated hosting company. You can check their offers too.
After buying a domain and hosting, now another important part is website setup. You must have skill to setup your website. If you don’t know how to do it, then you can outsource it.
Here is my personally recommended outsource company I personally use.
1. Ewebicon.com 2.oDesk.com 3.Elance.com
For CMS using I always recommend WordPress. Because WordPress always user friendly. After WP setup with the good quality theme try to use following plugin
Google XML Sitemaps

WP Auto Tagger

SEO (Search Engine Optimization): A few Online Marketing method to promote your website
SEO is right now more and more difficult task. To stop spammer, Google Update their algorithm several times. Almost Every backlink method is right now outdated. Only high quality content can bring you traffic and leads. Though all backlink method is outdated, but few methods are still working if you can do it without spamming.
Blog Commenting – Blog commenting is one of the oldest and most popular back link building methods. Right now backlink from blog commenting is almost dead. Google always like your website if you create backlinks from your niche related website and blog commenting can be one of the best niches related backlink source.
Forum Profiles – Almost outdated method, though a lot of spammers still use this method and ranked their website. In my opinion is please don’t use this method for your backlink source.
Web Directories – Another dead method. Only niche related web directory can give you a few good backlinks. If you have a local business, you can use it for co-citation building.
Press Release – Over and Over spamming in Press Release website, right now google count this type of link as a spamming. So try to use it as a backlink method. If you want to publish a Press Release, then use non contractual link with no follow tag. That will make you safe from spamming.
Guest Blogging – Though Google announce this method as a spamming, but this method still works perfectly if you are able to use perfectly. For you guest blogging method, try to use only high quality niche related website. Low quality website cannot give you a high quality backlink and you are not profitable.
Article Directories – Another dead method, though once upon a time this is one of the best backlink as well traffic source. Please always avoid this method as your backlink source.
Yahoo Answers – A great source of traffic. Doesn’t do anything spammy. Only use this as your traffic method. In yahoo Answer people post various question. Participate those discussions as like forum and divert them into your website.
Social Media – Social Media like Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, Facebook, painters is a great source of targeted traffic. Use this site technically as like Yahoo answer.
Web 2.0 Profiles and Blogs– Right now only one method is working perfectly as per I know. Though nothing is good if you do heavy spamming.
