Getting Started Online

Getting started online is fairly simple but if you are fairly new to the internet and are unfamiliar with many technologies there may be a slight learning curve.

Here are some things you should know about before getting started online:

  • You should know what a domain name is. If not, it's the name of a website that usually consists of a keyword domain name related to what it is that is being provided on the site. Sometimes domains never provide details as to what is being sold on the site, or what information is provided on the site. If this is the case it takes some hard selling to get the name out there. For example www.Amazon.com. The name doesn't tell you that it's books. But with some heavy advertising, Amazon.com has grown to one of the biggest selling internet sites online.
  • Practice Using the Technology - The best way to practice is getting online. Sign up for your own free email account. Go to Yahoo.com or MSN.com or both and sign up for their free email service. This will get you familiar with computers, downloading files links etc., and using different email providers. The best way to embrace technology is to use it.
  • Set Up Your Own Blog - Create a blog site just for fun so that you can learn some of the common words of the web. When you build a blog you are writing content, adding keywords, and links to your site. You may even want to add photos or even monetize by adding advertising like Google Adsense. Why not set up a blog about your most recent vacation? It's a great way to familiarize yourself with the technology but still have fun doing it. Learn how to upload pictures and content. Once you're familiar with setting up a blog it will be a good prep course to building your own website. You can bold, underline add hyperlinks etc. You'll be joining the online world, learning to lingo and providing an enjoyable service to those who want to know more about you and the places you have visited!You'll realize how simple it is and get more courage to set up your own website on a particular topic.
  • Sell Your Favorite Products! - Promote other people's products through affiliate programs to see how easy it is to sell e-books and other downloadable material and see how easy it is to make money. This is great because once you set it up once you never have to touch it again. It's now on autopilot. When someone makes a purchase from your site, you get paid!

  • Sell E-books - Selling downloadable products makes you see the potential of the online world but also boosts your confidence to see the endless possibilities that abound.

Continue to read and study. Lifelong learning is the best way to keep current in a changing world and the internet is no exception
