Is there actually a decent program that can get a noob up and running online with a decent business?
I have looked at alot 1 of them being commision domination ect.....
Is there a highly rated software that will actually get a noob up and running with just 1 program?

Thanks for you time guys . sorry for such a noob question but wouldnt it be cool to have a program that can get a real business going easily?
Thanks again

    In short? No.

    Stop looking for a program until you have a better understanding of the different types of things out there.

    Decide on a niche first, and then look for the best way to monetize it. Then you can find a program to learn from that compliments what you want to sell.

    I've been there, but unfortunately there's no fixed formula into how to succeed in online business. Marketers promote excellent systems for you to use, and it IS profitable. But the systems require a bit of time to get used to and some tinkering.

    If you're looking for an easy online startup, sorry, I personally don't think it exists. Still the same old school of hard knocks of experimenting, finding the right mentor, and sticking with it, while modifying your approach to suit yourself and your market, till success. I doubt ANY of our outstanding marketers had an 'easy online startup'. But what we can tap on is their vast experience...

    So maybe if you're looking for a shorter startup time, look for marketers who have the experience and will be willing to help you out. I can name some like (hopefully i dun get kicked for recommending) John Thornhill, or Chris Farrell.

      I believe that there isn't going to be one solution that is going to make you the money. You have to do that. What I mean by that is there are many of different systems that in theory and in application work. I would even say that MOST of them do work. The problem is there are many different factors that go along with whether a specific thing will work for us the same way that it worked for someone else at another point in time.

      What needs to happen is you have to find one course, system or program that you make the decision to follow to the letter all the way through and then evaluate your results. If you don't follow something to the letter all the way through then you don't have the right to inject what you think will make it better or take away what you feel isn't right until you have results that tell you different.

      Focus on something enough to get your own feedback about whether it works or not. Then you will be in a better position to make tweaks or educated changes or have the right to say it doesn't work.

      Can't you tell that I've done this myself once or twice?

    What you are asking for is a "decent" (profitable?) business plan. Nobody just hands these things out. In fact, even those who have enough cash to "buy" a business plan usually fall flat on their face.

    And here's why. Running a business is HARD. It's fun when you make a sale and its all the more stressful when you don't. If it was EASY everyone would be doing it. Now that said, if you are ready to learn the ropes than there is no reason why you can't be a success.

    Whether your a product creator, an online retailer, an affiliate marketer, a service provider or any other of the hundreds of online business models you need to understand one thing--how to find and market to an audience.

    You need to create a tool box for yourself. Learn techniques, or tools, that can further along your business goals. Then when you hit a snag you simply go back to what you learned in your toolbox and apply, apply, apply.

    In my humble opinion, if your asking about a "business-in-a-box" than you're NOT ready to run your own business.

    Surprisingly many of the responses have been indicating that there is not a one-size fits all program out there. And although that often seems to be the case I believe I have a program (even if you don't want to pay anything you can still learn some stuff for free on this site) check it out Free Video - Watch Exactly As I...

    there could be softwares which can help you run a descent business but it will be temporary and wont help you for a long run.

    Just learned the basic... No shortcut method. The basics will serve as your foundation. Build it strong... After that, you can try some softwares afterwards (if there is available).

    I think you ask a valid question, especially in light of the evidence you see in all the amazing offers available to you in your email. The plethora of great deals of what seems to be an easier way to build and grow a business are distorting the reality of doing it.

    Looking back at all the many diet plans and different ways to lose weight or get into shape that have come and gone leaving a million broken dreams you will see what is going on in online business offers. They always "look" good and "seem" simple enough, but once inside often you find that it requires much more time and money than first look indicated.

    So we get this impression that building a business online must be fairly easy because it looks like so many people are doing it and making lots of money. Truth is there are some people making some money and there are some people making quite a bit of money. But there are many people who are not making any money and end up leaving the possibilities on the table, walking away disappointed and telling their friends that this internet marketing thing just doesn't work.

    Earning income or building a business online will take a diligent and focused effort. It is not easy and it doesn't happen over night. There are skills that need to be developed and education acquired. One thing I'm learning is that there is a lot of writing of new and relevant content along with other SEO techniques to get your site found on page one of the search engines. But it can be done and if you are willing to pay the price you can do it.

    That's one of the blessing of something like this forum, the Warriors Forum. There is a lot of wisdom and experience here and you have come to the place to tap into it. I wish you well as you move forward to what can become a great adventure for you.

    Dang you don't need to invest in this interweb meekatting thang to start from scratch, as a noob there's nothing easier than setting up a blog, talking about what you are interested in and providing your visitors with something they want.

    For small moneys, use adsense code
    For intermediate moneys promote affiliate products
    For advanced moneys promote your own products
    For expert moneys promote your membership site
    For supercharged moneys use a combination of the bottom three

    Seriously, you can start IM with nothing but a connection.

    In any market - value of things/products/programs keep changing..
    it is always dynamic..
    so what worked 2 years ago may or may not work now or it may start working again tomorrow..
    unfortunately we need to constantly keep ourselves updated with whats valuable in todays market and potentially in the future market

      Honestly, I don't think there is a one size fits all solution either. We as people are all different and learn differently. What works for one may not work for another.

      My best advice is to begin by looking within yourself. Your habits, your follow-through, your budget, your interests, your existing skills etc etc. Start with yourself and to be blunt, if you can't be honest with yourself you might as well forget internet marketing.

      Write down what you think you would be good at. You write well? You enjoy creating graphics? You obsessed with fishing? lol, seriously a big part of getting started is identifying what you got to go on. If you identify a passion of your own and look into a niche market that has to do with it, you have a better chance of keeping at it through the ass kicking period of time most people quit.

      What you need to know depends entirely on your skills and what you are capable of. If you have no chance of building at least a semi attractive website then you need to seek out someone you can pay to do it. If you have no chance of being able to write even semi compelling content then you will need to budget in some funds to pay someone to do that too. If you are clueless about creating some graphics, your chances may be thinning out. If you can't research products and niches related to your passions to get started....well... then I doubt you can do this.

      Essentially, internet marketing is just simply selling something online. You need to position yourself in front of people who will buy from you. There is no easy button and there are tons upon tons of free and readily available sources of information available to all of us.

      What it takes is desire, follow-through, a never say die attitude and enough of an attention span to READ and LEARN then IMPLEMENT.
