As you know i am pretty new here, I started by reading the forums but I really needed to 'learn' the ropes as you say.
So I bought a lot of WSO's.. with that i got a lot of information and advise about how to get started.
Granted, you do need some initial money + a domain hosting account a few websites are a must!
Once you have setup everything ure ready for the sale.
So I made first sale by building a website + selling SEO services (charged 200/each service)
Plus the owner complained about his computer backups and performance so charged him an extra 200 to set all that up. Plus the remaining amount in setting up a few software pieces.
Also got a 75/month maint contract and a once in a 3 month in office computer consultation for $450/day.
Not a bad deal as a first client.
Tips- don't give up, don't try to do stuff which you can't like for example, clickbank was for me.
Read lots of WSO's guru's are better then us for a reason. Pick up at least one good thing from them.
Apply what you read.
Reap the benefits.
My next move is to read a few good wso's on outsourcing.
After that........... sky is the limit.
