Starting a business online is not as easy as it sounds. The most basic thing for an online business is having an internet connection and a laptop (Highly recommended) – as you can’t do everything with a smartphone, it isn’t as smart as it ought to be.
With such a high rate of unemployment, it’s often best to start something of your own. I am a firm believer in growing something from the ground up and really give it all you can. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it will get close and closer to perfection as you climb up a ladder.
Making money online sounds great, you do all the hard work behind the scenes – and publish the work for potential clients, readers, etc.
If you don’t have money to start a blog, you can use a free service from (www.blogger.com), you don’t have to pay any fees, even though it comes with all these terms and conditions, it’s not a bad start – However, it is, and I do too, recommend having your own domain.

Once you have about enough content on your blog, you can apply for Google Advertising Network (Google AdSense) – Millions of bloggers around the world use Google AdSense and it pays well. It is a pay-per-click service that pays you a few cents or more per clicked ad.
You can apply for AdSense on www.adsense.com, your blog will be reviewed for a couple of days or so and once accepted – you will be able to place ad codes on your blog. 90% of the ads are related to your blog niche.
Besides AdSense, there are a lot of other blog advertising networks such as MGID, Taboola, all of which work the same way – you just have to place the ad codes whenever you want the ad to show. Some may have conditions in terms of Traffic, however, with Google AdSense, once approved; ads will start showing right away.
You can choose to promote a product from Amazon, as an example, and if they have an affiliate program, you can include the affiliate link for your users to use to purchase the product, which is fair.

You don’t have to post 100s of articles a day – you can post one article a day, but really maintain your schedule. But the first impression lasts.
Be real. I am human, you are human – we need useful information, making money shouldn’t be a priority as a blogger, but if you have original and useful content you will make money, either way, so what I am saying is – don’t put your focus on making money – focus on content and the rest will follow.
