Are you researching the best way how to build an online business? Perhaps you thought it takes magic or luck to be successful online? There’s nothing mystical about it.

Simply follow a proven, results-generating process…

Content arrow Traffic arrow PREsell arrow Monetize

It starts with your “pre-customer,” the hundreds of millions of people who surf the Web every day…

People use the Web as a searching tool. They search for credible high-value information or solutions, anything that can fulfill a wish that they hold dearly or solve a troublesome problem that they’re experiencing.

A Theme-Based Content Site contains information based on a main subject—the information that those people are searching for. Each page focuses on a single topic that’s related to that theme. The sum of all the information on all your pages forms the Content of your site.

Your pages rank well with the Search Engines, since what the engines are looking for is quality content that they can send their users to. Your pages’ high rankings at the engines attract lots of targeted Traffic. The high-value content “warms up” (i.e., PREsells) visitors by OVERdelivering what they came for… relevant information.

Visitors start to like and trust you, based on what you write about on your site. Your content-rich site builds trust and credibility… “PREselling!” You become a knowledgeable expert in the eyes of your visitors, who quickly become repeat visitors.

This credibility creates an open-to-buy or open-to-hire mindset. You are now a mere click away from Monetizing (converting PREsold traffic into dollars)…

  • merchant-partner sites that you represent as an affiliate
  • an order page on your site where a prospect can buy your own products (hard or digital goods)
  • a contact form which visitors can use to follow-up with you for more details about your professional services or Network marketing business opportunity
  • your own online store
  • a site that sells a related, non-competitive service or product, in return for a referral fee
  • your established sales site (become your own best affiliate!)
  • an ad from Google’s Adsense program
  • any combination of the above or others!

This proven, results-generating process…

… works.

Always keep in mind that you’re in the “Content Delivery Business.” Build up a solid site that OVERdelivers quality content. Find some inbound links. Then monetize. Follow that plan and you’ll succeed!

    Thanks for you article.I find that most successful people online are problem seekers. They look for problems people face, find a solution and present that solution to them.
    The big issue for most people trying to start online is that they do not have this mindset of trying to solve other peoples problems but rather trying to sell or push their own product.
    You are right.Success is a “proven, results-generating process”

    One of the biggest mistakes that I made was not putting my blinders on. I discovered an internet forum, all of which I thought was better than what SBI had to offer. After spending 18 months of wasting time and chasing the next big thing, I am back at square 1. Still no site and no further along in the process.
    This weekend I dumped all of those WordPress blogs and started reading the Affiliates Masters course. That felt great because I finally understood it.
    I don’t regret going off track because I learned a lot about what does not work but I do get somewhat upset as not being able to get the time back.
    I am going to be 37 in 2011 and I’ll not let 37 arrive without having started on the right path.
    I will say I finally understand the message behind SBI and the huge potential it offers. I just need to sit down and start researching my site theme.
    I am glad I came “came back home”.
