Hi, my name’s Mark – and this is my website. Welcome!
This site is intended to help give you information about setting up an online business. I’ll be recommending tools, training, and also trying to highlight the many scams that you’ll come across when looking for opportunities to “get online”.
Whether you want to make money from your online business, or simply just blog and have some fun – it’s all the same really. The one thing you need to do is attract visitors. To do that you have to create great content that gives them something they are looking for. It may be a simple piece of information eg. How to setup a WordPress Blog – or how to register a domain name. It could even be how to avoid scams online.
Just take that last point for a minute. If you are looking to make some money from the internet then you WILL be attracted by a lot of seemingly wonderful offers. Remember that old saying, “if it seems too good to be true…” well remember that always – it’ll save you a lot of money, pain and time.
There Are No Get Rich Quick Schemes
If that’s what you’re looking for – I’m sorry to disappoint you. To setup anything online takes work – but work can be fun.
If you’re truly an honest hard worker, you’ll know that nothing comes from nothing. If you want to see the rewards, you have to put in the effort, and work at it. I have 3 great boys, and I want to instil that ethic into them – after all, their generation will one day be making decisions on running the world, investing our resources, building our schools and so on. Your reasons may be different – but ultimately, you’ll have one (or maybe many) for wanting to get online.
Although I’ve been on the internet for years, I’ve built programs for people to use – I’ve not really looked at blogging or marketing before, so I started looking for training to help me. Taking into account all of the scams which I came across which I elude to above, I eventually found the Wealthy Affiliate University.
It’s filled with step by step guides and training videos and there’s a huge community of people supporting each other. I’ll be putting what I learn there into practice on this site. They also give you 2 free websites and show you videos of how exactly they did it!!
The training really gives you a clear “join the dots” path to building up your site or blog. There is a “members area” – but for 7 days you can access it all for free. I have never found another service like this that offers a completely free membership BEFORE you spend any money.
Please leave me a comment here, or on any page or post on this website – I’d love to hear from you and if I can help answer any of your questions, or just get to know you and your opinions, then that would be great.
All the best,
