I want to know what are the top five questions that people who want to start an online business ask. Can people in this forum tell me where is the best place online to find these people? Can you tell me what questions you had before getting started with internet marketing?

    My first question ? Can you really do it and make enough money while working 2 hours a day by your pool in Beverly Hills with the Lambo ready in the garage to go eat lunch at Mortons by noon

      No, you cannot. And that is because you're forgetting some key ingredients. Lamborghinis, by themselves, even if parked in the driveway of a 14-million dollar, 47,000 sq ft house, do not attract money. Put 2 half-naked hotties next to your Lamborghini, and you'll be a huge step closer. Get 1 of the hottie to lie on the Lamborghini's hood and the other one to caress it, and you're cooking!

    Maybe something like this . . .
    1. What is the fastest and easiest way to make money online in 2017?
    2. What is the very best niche that will make me a lot of money?
    3. What are your five best sources of free traffic?
    4. Where can I buy a high converting email list for cheap?
    5. How come I'm not getting any traffic or sales at my web site?
    Any of this sound familiar?

      Point number 5 is probably the most common question out of them all.

    1 ) Did you choose a profitable Niche and provide an unique solution?

    2) Did you set up a good freebie and a beautiful easy opt in page?

    3) Did you implement at least 20 days of follow up in your autoresponder before broadcasting mail?

    4) Did you diversify quality and quantity of traffic?

    5) Did you constantly prepare a good fresh content for your Leads and get in touch personally with them?

    To be honest we were all there once upon a time and what did we tend to ask will be similar in lines of ...

    1) What is the best method to make money online?

    2) How quickly can I see results ?

    3) How much time is required from my behalf ?

    4) Can I work alone or do I need a team ?

    5) How much money do I have to Invest ?

    I hope you see the picture. Etc.

      You're right TrafficOutlet. We were all there once. Some of the questions do seem similar. The thing is what ever questions we did have we somehow found the answers to. By us posting those questions here we can help other people just starting out see that all of their questions can be answered and what may seem to be obstacles can be overcome. Thanks for your help? If you think of anything else that you left out...give it up. ;-)

    "How to make money online with little to no effort?"

    The fact that Internet Marketing takes a certain amount of time and effort is a good thing. Why?
    Because it separates the People who are truly serious. (And ... Makes those People more appreciative/grateful/etc. of their success.)

    Personally I would rather work at something -- and spend a great deal taking action -- until I'm "Successful."

    That said I think anyone can be successful ... They just have to work for it.

      Can I really get free advertising?

      At the time I was running a mailorder business where there is no "free" traffic. I kept seeing people offering huge exposure online for free. Just post your ads on their site, "Seen by millions online."

      I had no idea what an FFA board was or email blast, but I quickly figured it out.

    Things to consider before starting an online business:
    - Did you create a business plan?
    - Do you need to incorporate or form an LLC?
    - What is the cost to get started? (This includes hard costs as well as personal cost - Opportunity cost.)
    - Will you make enough money to cover costs and sustain a comfortable way of life. (This answer is different for everyone)
    - Will you need to work another job to sustain yourself?
    - How much time are you giving yourself to claim success or defeat?
    - Have you discussed your business idea with at least 5 people you trust to validate your ideas. (Not family members who will say every idea is a good one!)
    - Can you get a domain that is harmonious with your business idea. (A good domain name goes a long way.)
    - Do competitive analysis.

    That is probably a pretty good start...

    I think you have plenty of answers to the top five most asked questions.

    As for place, asking here is probably going to be as good as anyplace else, you have a built in audience of hundreds of thousands of people (according to FL).

    The questions I asked were to SPECIFIC people, and one of those was Melvin Powers. So, I think who one asks is more important than the question.

    As another person pointed out, what good is 100 different answers from 100 unknown people? One problem with WF today, too many heeding advice from those in the same boat they are in.

    IF I'm in the rowboat, I'm going to ask the guy in the yacht (the real one, not one he's rented for an hour). So the question I asked Mel Powers, Jim Straw, Ben Suarez and many others was:

    If you lost everything today, what would you do tomorrow to build your business back up?

    In other words, learn from the mistakes success has already made and avoid making them. OR

    go ahead and listen to Warrior 2007Ibebroke and see what he tells you to do.

    Thanks GordonJ, your response makes a lot of sense and is well taken. What it boils down to is while the questions being asked are important, who you or where you get your answers from will make the difference in the results. I agree. I also know that there are those times however that the coach knows how to win at the game but never played it himself. You can definitely find the right answers in someone else s experience and pass it on to others.

    This thread could be a very useful leadership tool as well. Everyday, I receive a majority of the same questions from my downline. I'm a true leader thankful to have come across such great comments and responses in this thread!
