You want to start an online business, work from home, gain some freedom? What does it really take to become an online entrepreneur ? Having recently gone through the process myself. I feel am in the right spot here to share my experience with others who are considering this option. One thing I will say is that if you haven’t considered it you really should. Things are changing rapidly and soon a lot of the traditional ways of working and doing the jobs we do will change. AI (artificial intelligence) along with computers and robots will soon be replacing a lot of jobs we humans do in a traditional way.

This video  – Humans Need Not Apply – is a glimpse into the kind of jobs robots will be doing in the very near future. But it’s not all about robots and doom and gloom. It’s about you having control of your life and living it the way you want to!

So what does it take to become an online entrepreneur ? Well let’s take a look at it from a reverse angle. What doesn’t it take to get started.

Technical Skills?

No! These days everything you need is out there in the world you want to get into. There are many places to learn and many, many people who are willing to teach. You may even find a company that will teach you the skills you need for free if you are willing to sell their products. Alternatively there are websites like fiverr.com  where you can pay from as little as $5 for just about anything you need from, logos to copywriting to websites. It’s all there for you. Or you could self teach, youtube is abundant with free videos of people teaching just about anything you need, or want, to learn. 

Products?

No! There are people out there who have made millions from just selling other people’s products. This is affiliate marketing (see below) and this just means you are the middle man. You get paid commission to market and sell other people’s products. These products can be physical products,  or,  what I prefer and do, digital products. My product of choice is online marketing training, all delivered digitally. Buy now, receive now ! If you really want to you can create your own digital products or even import your own products. You just don’t need to if you don’t want too. Clickbank is a website with thousands of suppliers with products ready and waiting for you to sell online. It is possible to get started today!

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.

Money?

No! If you go down the affiliate marketing route you can sell others peoples products and advertise for free by blogging and using social media. So you can get started with no money. However, this is a long and slow process and it is time consuming. Time being the most valuable commodity of all. In reality it is better if you do have some budget. It doesn’t have to be much. I started from scratch with around £2500 ($3150) and got a full of the shelf package with training, back up, products and ongoing support and development, and a load of new friends. You can start to explore the system I use today by registering for a free video training series. Click here  – Yes! Send Me The Videos.

So what does it take to become on online entrepreneur? Well one thing, ACTION thats all, you literally have it all at your fingertips you just need to get out there are start looking and doing. I can guarantee you won’t become an online entrepreneur if you sit on your ass and do nothing! I wasn’t born into the digital age. Had no tech skills even less marketing skills. I started to take action about a year ago. Here I am today with my own online business loving life. You have the power to do that too.

Have a great day
