Starting Online Business Article

UPDATE: I have consolidated all my articles from several of my blogs into one blog at sixtyplustips.blogspot.com

For this article please visit at the new address: https://sixtyplustips.blogspot.com/2016/06/how-to-start-online-business-for-free.html

My apologies for this inconvenience as in Blogger there is no simple way to redirect post from Blog to be redirected to another Blog. If you know how, please let me know. 

Thank You


  1. I really like your website. It has very good information about how to start a business online, and it is very down to earth and not to complicated which makes it easy for the reader.
    My question is if I purchase a domain, can I carry that domain over to my own program or do I have to stay with WA? Thank you for the information.

  2. I think one of the biggest roadblocks for newbies in the online business scene is the thought of needing a website. They think this step is extremely difficult, when in reality, it's actually fairly easy. With website building tools like WordPress, anyone can have the framework of their website created in just a matter of minutes. Of course it takes time to fill the site in with content, but the framework of your their website is there ready to get rankings and engagement.

    I'm new to the whole wordpress, well I knew about it before but never used it because I have always enjoyed programming my own sites and having absolute control over the visuals in my website due to be a graphic designer.

    I never knew there was a wordpress dot org and wordpress dot com. I also did not know the difference until I read this blog post...

    While on this post I clicked on the smash fund because I was curious to find anyone else that felt the same way about it. I have no confidence that it isn't a scam and I know it was offering free membership till July but I didn't learn about it till the beginning of this month. The membership fee after June is outrages and I am not willing to pay it. It would be different if a program didn't charge you until you start making money and the system is proven.

    Anyway great post!

  4. Hi, Joe. Wealthy Affiliate is essentially an online training course to help people succeed online. In addition, they give two free websites and free hosting (for starter membership). But if you decide to buy your own domain, you have a choice of staying (or hosted) at WA (which is FREE) or have it hosted at your own selected hosting provider (which you have to pay).
    Hope this helps clarify the matter. Thanks Joe for dropping by. Cheers.

  5. Hi Salvatore. Not many people are aware of the dot org and dot com and as you can see from the table, they are different.Yes, SmashFund sounds interesting BUT also smells scammy. They have been updating the site with more features now but could just be window dressing. If you read my review, the guy behind SmashFund was also involved in another scheme that was alleged to be a pyramid scheme.Thanks for dropping by Salvatore.

  6. Hi, Matthew. Yes, I do agree with you when in reality building a website is a fairly straightforward process. That's why I noticed many people start on Google Blogger instead of WordPress 'cos it is basic and simple.

  7. Great break down of Pro's and Con's! When starting an online business, website or blog, it is important to get as much education and training as possible to get started. The "technical jargon" can be overwhelming, so proper knowledge on the subject will definitely help grow your business.
    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and making it easier to take that first step!

  8. A great article on starting and online business.

    It is great that there are so many free tools available to us know to get a start online. I do agree with you though that if you are building a website that owning the domain (i.e. paying for it) is the best step. The free domains are actually sub-domains and remain the property of the provider.

    A major advantage to owning your domain is that you build the content and traffic that will create value in your site, then you can choose how to make money from that site.

    I see Wealthy Affiliate offer 2 free sub-domains, but of you go premium you can have 25 websites hosted included in the cost of membership as well as have access to all the step by step training.
    It is the best value from the options I have researched for hosting websites, and training for building an online business, and I see you mention this site here too. Nice

    It is great to see you getting this information out there.

  9. Hi, Wade. thanks for sharing these important points. As you had mentioned, owning our own domain has its advantages. It is like owning our own house and not renting (as in free domain). But as a start, some people may not have the extra cash for this, so the free domain is fine. Once you are ready, you can move your free domain and all its contents to the paid domain. At Wealthy Affiliate, you can do these seamlessly.

  10. Yes, Tiffany. Education and knowledge of the business are important if we want to make it work and be successful online. The safest place to learn this is at Wealthy Affiliate, especially if you are new to all of these and have not build a website before.Thanks for chipping in and have a great day.

  11. This is a must-read article for anyone who would want to start a business online. This has provided a lot of information that one should take the time to read. The most basic and important thing here is to put an action to your ideas. If you wouldn't, then you will never know whether it can give you the success that you want or not. There is no other way to find out but to try.

    Your article has a lot of information that a beginner can definitely make use of. The steps that yo have here are legit enough and this is how one can truly have an impressive business on the internet.


  12. Hi, Chanan. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for dropping by. Yes, until you give it a try, you wouldn't know what you are missing. This reminds me of that famous quotes by Roy Bennett - “Never stop dreaming, never stop believing, never give up, never stop trying, and never stop learning.”So learn and try new things.

  13. I heard that websites hosted on Blogger can only run ads from Google. Is that true? That will limit many avenues of advertising income.

    For Amazon Affiliates, do you still think it's a viable partner as seriously, the commission rate is too low as compared to private affiliate programs. For new marketers, we normally experience low traffic and we want to make the most out of it.

  14. Yes, Kenny. Blogger site belongs to Google and hence will run only ads from Google. But it is also easier to get approved for Adsense account. So if you have wordpress site that has problem in getting Adsense approved, try to open a blog site. Then use this site to add your wordpress site into the account. Have it verified, get the Adsense code then inserted it onto the site.If you sign up for Rakuten, Clickbank, CJ Affiliate etc. you can also use the text link to take you to the affiliate sites. This way, you have more channel to earn some income.

  18. Hello Mazlan,

    Thanks a lot for sharing with me these valuable information on your website. I have been looking for a legitimate way to make money online. However, as you rightly said, I knew that the best way to do this is to have my own business website. But I just didn't know how to go about doing that.

    So I'm glad I found your site today. You mentioned the various ways I can set up my own website, you even mentioned about doing blogging. I never knew there is a way I can use my Gmail account to blog on Google.

    I have heard about WordPress, but I never knew that there is a difference between WordPress org and a WordPress com. Thanks a lot for explaining things clearly to me.

    I will like to consider using WordPress org - since it has more advantages over the WordPress com, so that I can register with Affiliate programs and put their products on my website. I will also consider Wealthy Affiliate as you recommended.


  19. Hi, Stephen.Yes, that's a good start and I also recommend you look out for the free plugin called Elementor. They also have the paid version but the free version is good enough for almost any type of blogging.  With Elementor, you can create professional looking website with WordPress, with ease.
