Before spending lots of money on tools and courses on how to make money online for beginners, read this article first.
It will save you lots of time and from unnecessary spending.
Start by creating content in the form of articles, also called posts. You can create them in a gDoc worksheet or even in a .txt file.
Write on anything on your mind. You may ask yourself questions naturally as you begin writing. These questions will force you to do research and as you further align with the premise of your article in your mind, you can add the answers to the questions in the content of your article.
Once you have a proofread article, go into Canva and make an image for free, that supports your content.
Now add your text and image in a WordPress.com website. It’s easy to create a site there, and it costs nothing except a little time to setup.
Eventually you will want to transfer your post to your own WordPress self hosted site, but don’t worry about that part yet.
Just worry about producing great content. Starting step by step without getting overwhelmed is the key. And lets be honest, most people can’t create good content. If they can it’s not on a consistent basis. I’m talking about at least two posts per week of questions people are searching in your niche topic.
So that’s your first test to see if building an online business is going to work for you.
If you find yourself posting at least twice per week on your free wordress.com (not the same as a self hosted wordpress.org site) then you should go ahead with your online business.
Here is a bonus tip. Start a YouTube channel on the same topic as your blog. Some people can’t write on a consistent basis but making great videos are easy for them. By having both a free blog and free YouTube channel, you will find which works best for you. Better yet if you can manage to produce content on each platform at least twice per week you will succeed with creating an online business.
Another thing to consider is how you can use what you know about writing and creating online to help others. You can help individuals or businesses and they are willing to pay you for your tutoring and help.
