    Really sorry to hear about that. Here's my advise.

    If you have some savings right now to go about next 2 months and focus in building your business then go ahead starting your online business.

    If you donot have that savings I would advise you to take projects at freelancer.com, elance.com, etc and you will start making instant income. The best projects you can take are article writing projects which should make you atleast $3 per article.

    You can even check out warriors for hire section, there too you can get some projects.

    If you wish to learn how to write quality articles PM me and I will give you one of my ebooks for free that will train you how to write good articles.

    Now once you are making some instant income you can go about building your ebusiness.

    There are certain steps you need to take, here how it goes...

    1. Select a niche.
    2. Build a list in your niche.
    3. Ask your prospects what are their problems.
    4. Create a product based on their problems and promote them the product.
    5. You can even use affiliate marketing to promote the products to solve their problems.
    6. Drive traffic using article marketing, forum posting and some paid advertising.
    7. Build a huge product line and a sales funnel to increase your income per subscriber.

    YOU have to master these 7 steps to start an online business, there are no shortcuts, hope this helps...

      This is such a nonsense... and I just can't understand why this misconception persists on WF? Do you?
      (except offering your product)

      I can teach anybody to set up a website using WordPress - in a day. Or two, if you are slow. Because it's just mechanical steps you need to follow.

      However, nobody can teach you to write good relevant content... if you missed the grammar lessons during all your school years; if your thoughts are incoherent; if you have no sign of minimal talent for it and so on.
      And if anybody writes in this way - it will be just garbage.

      I am not saying the OP, eventually, wouldn't be able to write. I don't know him. His first post wouldn't make to think to suggest writing as a "solution". Sorry.

      So, no, writing is not for everybody. Is this that difficult to understand?

    Sorry John about your current situation,
    I am not sure but if you are good at writing, I would recommend you check out londonbrokers. You can start writing for them. It will make you much more than your bottom line indicated in your post.

    If you are not good at writing, you might want to consider affiliate marketing and CPA marketing. Search for threads on these areas here on the WF for ideas.

    I wish you well.
    All the best.

  • Hi john. I am really sorry of your story.
    If you can writing articles you can easily find out people searching for article writers on the forums, even here.
    Or you can find people looking for backlinks for their sites.
    But if you want to have your own business, there are a lot of great tutorials in SEO and IM that helps you.
    You just need to register a domain, buy hosting (there are also free web hosting services, but I am afraid they aren't safe) and select your niche. Try to choose that is closer to you, as you'll have to write down articles. Then you can put Google Adnsense on your site or work on affiliate programs. While selecting your niche you must make a keyword research: does this keyword has high number of searches, how much is competition on this keyword. In this case you should use Google Keywords tool.
    Wish you success in your business. Good Luck!

    Hello John and welcome to the forums. As someone who also suffers from a "bad ticker" I understand how hard the situation can be, but rest assured we as a community will do our best to assist you as best we can.

    If I may I'd like take the lesser traveled path in recommendations as you are a pure beginner and I am sure our tech-like talk would probably confuse you a bit. It's all a process and it will take some time but I am sure you are more than willing to take the time to learn.

    My first recommendation would be to gather a list of things that you are most passionate and knowledgeable about. It could be a hobby, sport, political issue, etc. Once you have this list we can help you get started on the road to a healthier income but without the stress.

    It may seem like a very simple start and in all honest it is, but it is also the most effective in my experiences. Best of luck to you Sir.

    Hi there. Sorry to see that you are a Manchester United supporter. Doesn't this mean that you don't have a heart anyway ;-). I am UK based, have health problems and yet make several thousand pounds a month online. So it is possible. The best place to start in my humble opinion is the Challenge. This costs absolutely nothing. The Challenge

    There are lots of us Warriors based in the UK. You can find my address very easily if you google Pearson Brown.

    Hello John
    I am sorry to hear about your problem and I am here to help I will not only show you the best way to work but effectively within 2-3 weeks and you may start to earn a passive income
    I don't know what other warriors are saying but that's not an easy neither way fast to earn money.

    First step
    Is to buy products with Private label rights Price= 9$ to 20$ (Buy the one with salesletter)
    To Buy Products with PLR rights goto Private Label Rights Products including PLR articles, ebook, templates, software and other PLR products
    Step 2
    Create a website and paste the sales letter that you got with the product
    Buy from godaddy or any other.
    Step 3
    Get your payment processor account for getting automatic sales done and getting credit for the sales done
    There are Many some require fees while some are free but with some charges on your sales.
    Paid payment processor like e.g. Clickbank
    Free payment processor like e.g. Plimus
    Step 4
    Let's sum up now you have is a product,a website,payment processors so what is missing
    What you don't have is traffic without traffic there will be no revenue even if you have the most brilliant product in the world.
    So now in this step we will discuss about getting traffic with the lowest investment i.e.CPA(Cost per Action) it is that method in which you only pay when sale is done and not that kind of advertisements where you pay the advertizing company for each click and hoping to get sales done

    CPA are of many types
    :
    It is used for getting lead
    It is used for getting sales
    It is used for getting subscribers

    In all these methods you only pay when a particular action is occurred
    When joining a CPA company go with the most trusted one.
    I don't know any but what I have heard is Clickbooth is the most reputed company.
    That's it now you have a control on your advertisement with CPA system
    But still if you want to earn money by the time you get this running you can work online at Elance.(You can work as an article writer,editor and get paid)

    And one more thing Good Luck and I hope inshallah you will get cured soon.

      Hi John

      Another Brit with a dicky ticker here (3 strikes so far).

      You've come to the right place for help and guidance. There are a lot of genuinely caring individuals in the WF, and I'm sure you'll start to find a direction pretty quickly. You will often find links in the signature files offering pots of good, and often free information, but don't get snowed under with too much 'stuff'.

      One of the easiest ways to start building a new income would be to try Affiliate Marketing. You don't need your own products, and you can set it up pretty quickly, perhaps using a Wordpress blog or site as your 'base'.

      This is not a get rich quick business, and you will need to focus on ONE subject only, avoiding distractions. There will, however be a certain amount of learning and work required, and by sticking to one subject, you will be gaining the skills to expand and grow later.

      Many aspects of IM are "rinse and repeat", but until you have that first project showing you return, there's nothing to repeat!

      I was working online for almost 6 months before I made my first dollar (well $7.00 actually), but it was my motivation to continue. (my second sale was $60.00).

      If you decide to take the Affiliate Marketing route, you will need a few necessary tools:
      • Website or Blog (Wordpress)
      • Domain Name (Paid or Free)
      • Web Hosting
      • An Autoresponder Service (Paid or Free)
      • A Clickbank Account (Free)
      • At least one webmail account (GMail etc.)
      • A Paypal Account, and obviously
      • A Good Broadband Connection

      You can start Affiliate Marketing for a very low cost, or even free, once you have all the necessary tools/resources in place.

      It's a great benefit if you're a good written communicator, but even if you're not, you can rewrite good articles and posts to make them your own.

      I wish you every success, and hope I can offer help along the way. Simply ask a question in the Forum, and I'm sure you will find help.

      Cheers
      Alan

      PS Perhaps a little later, you may consider joining the War Room. There are some great offers there which can save you a lot of money in many ways.

          Be sure to add this to the top of your list of niches to fully explore.

          What you will want to pay attention to is if there is money to be made online in home improvement - but more importantly how it is being made. There are a lot of ways to make money, but some are better than others.

          Adsense, affiliate, product creation, just to name a few. It's not a good idea to do all of this on one site typically. Scoping out the competition and seeing how they are doing it will give you a lot of clues.

    Sorry to hear about your situation John.
    You will learn more about the IM business here in the forum, just hang in here for a while and warriors here will surely share their ideas with you. If I may suggest, if you are into writing John, you might want to offer your services as a freelance writer, tutor and blogger. With your knowledge about home improvement industry, you could give some advises and tips to people who aren't really familiar with the industry.
    For writing articles to clients who are into home improvement, you might want to check Odesk or Elance, there are clients signed in there who are looking for someone who will write them articles or blogs about the topic or niche that they want writers to do.

    Hi John!

    Lots of great advice here... the main thing I would say is FOCUS.

    Find your passion, set a goal and focus on what needs done daily to achieve it.

    ...that means sticking to a schedule, something us entrepreneurs with "shiny object syndrome" tend to not be the best at

    Who did you sell carports to? Will people buy them online without seeing one? What's the markup like? It may work better to give away a free report or instructions on how to build one... then an option to call/buy from you if they don't want to do it themselves.

    You'd start by using the "google keyword tool" to learn the words people are typing in when searching for that item. Such as "manchester carport dealer," "carport instructions" or "how to build a carport."

    Then you type that into a google search and see how much competition there is (results, i.e. 1-10 of 5,005,769 websites). You want a few hundred thousand competing sites, not a few million because you can get to page 1 easier.

    Choose the one with the least competition, buy a url to match that (1and1.com has a .99 sale) and setup a wordpress blog on it to make your site.

    Hope this helps some!

        We had a carport growing up. My dad built it. We even had some chicken wire built into the top and used to dry some garden stuff up there during the winter. They are very effective as a garage.

        You could build a website for free - something like Weebly or Blogger - but you are really going to want to have your own domain name. And hosting too.

        I realize you are feeling a financial crunch possibly with your situation - but building on your own domain for branding yourself is going to take you much further in the long run. See if you can find 100 bucks (it can be done for less too) to set things up properly.

        I hate to peg people into any specific thing - but in your case I would agree with some of the above who recommend the challenge.

        It will give you some people to learn from, and there are some solid foundations presented there to getting a site up and going - and it is free. I think Ed Dale tosses in some things he is selling - but you won't need to buy or invest in those to get going. You will however need to do some additional research on your own to learn how to manually do some of the automated things (those things which cost something).

        You might want to consider using some keywords which target your immediate local market. This might move things a bit quicker for you. IE: carportsinuk.com or something even more local to where you are living.

        Your website should cover the benefits of having a carport. The options available, and what you are offering and why you offer what you do and why I want to get supplies from you.

        See if the company you can sell for can toss you some marketing materials - like specifics of the materials and what people will be looking for.

      Yup. I'll go along with that. By taking The Challenge you will learn a lot of techniques which will save you time and money, and The Challenge itself is constructed in such a way that you need to dedicate some focussed time to it to get results. This can help instill some disipline to your way of working. If you do take The Challenge, don't be distracted. Concentrate ALL your efforts with it and you will see results, while learning a lot along the way.

    Hello John sorry to hear about your situation. You were born to succeed. Do not give up on anything that you have chosen for yourself! Realize that your thoughts will ultimately affect your actions. Have faith in yourself. Start writing you can put up a blog or a website of your own. Put them up on the numerous search engines. It could be the major and also the lesser known search engines, for instance, Google, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, Web Crawler, Bing etc. These will help to sustain a stable stream of capable visitors. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a sure shot method to get traffic for your website. Get the website programmed in the organic results of popular search engines. Another simple way would be to join the social networking sites which are media websites such as Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Plaxo and LinkedIn wherein a direct connection can be made with people thus promoting your website. You can build an audience which will share the same interest; you can contribute content as per your pieces of writings, your articles and at the same time interact with people.
