I believe you can benefit by taking a shortcut in your Business Startup learning curve, using this platform if you are new to the world of building your business online (even if you have an offline business too)
(Full disclosure there are affiliate links in this post, link policy here)
This does not affect you in any way and you don't pay any more if you do decide to purchase a particular product or service.
You can be sure though I will only be bringing you the very best products I think will be of use to you on your small business ideas journey and to prove my point
If you are in a hurry to get to the offer, just click the link above and it will take you straight there.
My list of resources is going to be quite a small one because the first I am going to share with you is so comprehensive.
I currently don't have to look outside it for any other business building information or tools.
And I make no apologies for explaining it here in such detail
It is brilliant for beginners, but just as useful for more experienced users.
If you want less words and prefer a video explanation, click here and it will jump you down the page.
I know not everyone likes to read or they are in a hurry and just want the facts.
If you are a WordPress user you are catered for to, click here and it will jump you down the page and you can get straight to it, but do come back and read the rest of the page because it applies to you too.
This is relevant to both online business building or if you want to have an offline one instead.
A web presence of some sort is a must even if you are only selling your product or service in your local area.
You may not think you need to reach a global audience but when you learn more about starting a small business you will no doubt see the benefit as time goes on.
The world has become a very small place since the dawn of the internet.
The length and breadth of the online world knows absolutely no bounds now
Trust me when I say, I am was not tech savvy.
I knew nothing about building a web site, search engine optimisation, or the whole process of going online.
I approached it all with fear and trepidation and the perceived cost of starting and having to engage a professional really had me in a bit of a state.
So, I did a bit of research, tried quite a lot stuff on my own that didn't cost any money like blogger, wix, weebly and wordpress (the no cost version) but I soon realised, ridiculous as it may sound,
And the price is time looking for all the information you need, and money needed when you realise you cannot necessarily actually do it yourself.
I did even have a go with Typepad for a while, which I liked for ease of use, and it came with a bit of a varying technical help-desk because you had a varying cost model but no business building advice.
To cut a long story very short, after a lot of trial and error, I came across the product I am using now.
It is a full online business building package and I could build it all myself, so that really kept the cost of start up right down.
There is so much in it I don't have the room to write about it all, but if you click the link you will see the whole shebang.
But, please don't take my word for it.
I absolutely insist you to go and have try to get going online with one of the free programmes like blogger or the no cost version of WordPress and see how you get on.
There is no substitute at all for hands on experience.
The problem is...
I know because I have tried them all thinking I was saving money and being savvy.
I got a bit fed up in the end with people spouting, now just build a website in 20 minutes, its free to start with, because it wasn't working for me and I felt abject failure.
In fact, to be honest, I feel angry because I wasted so much valuable time I will never, ever get back!
All the well known names above, absolutely, can help you produce a website in some form, shape or fashion but, as a few examples, there are:
In fact, no business building education at all!
The programme I am using, offers you a 10 day process to follow with logical steps and a bible to follow or Action Guide as it is known.
Your How To Build A Business Manual
You go from zero to hero in 10 steps, without having to go anywhere else on the web for your information, and the forum help offered is absolutely world class.
And you may be surprised to learn you never pick your domain name until step 5, and the reasons are obvious once you start on your journey.
Social media training included, marketing advice, webinars, hosting, domain name and an awful lot more.
One of the most fun parts is the brainstormer tool to help you find your best business idea and your best positioning in your industry.
You find out just exactly what it is people are looking for and in detail, not what you think they are looking for online and with a broad brush.
You are not just building a website you are actually building a business here.
A crucial point to remember in the land of low cost/no cost!
All for the bargain price of about £25.00/$20.00 per month or less if you pay in one go, or close to that in your own currency.
So, if you think you might be interested, have a look here.
You get 90 days to trial it for free to see if you like it, if not just say so, and you don't have to pay anything at all.
Nowhere else on the internet offers a business building system system like this with this level of extensive help on tap 24/7.
No problem, I get it, a lot of people love it.
Well the good news is you can use SBI with Wordpress
WordPress lovers can get it even cheaper here, you purchase the widget to drop in your current site or the one you will start and away you go.
You get all the bells and whistles included so in less than 90 days you could be up and running your own successful online business.
Go on, give it a trial run, you have go nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Personally, I don't use Wordpress right now but I can speak from experience so I am not just saying it for effect:
So much more to it than just putting up a website in 20 minutes, believe me...
Here are 52 other people who want to share their experiences, have a look at what they achieved.
Click on the links to their sites and see what a diverse, cross section of small business ideas they have come up in pursuit of a new career for themselves.
If you have a small business idea, no matter how crazy you think it might be, you can start...
No problem, you can give this programme to the person who designs your websites and they can upload their own HTML.
Which means they can build your site from scratch if they so choose and you can still use Wordpress if you prefer.
So that issue is covered.
No problem, you can learn how to build your business using the action guide as document you can read, you can learn using the video version of it and there is also an audio version so you can learn, how you want, when you want using any method you want.
How does that sound? All bases covered there I think!
Here is the one minute explainer video, great if you are in a hurry
If you have a little more time to spare you can watch the full 30 minute video tour, that covers the whole process in depth about building your business and why you build more than a just website.
A fundamental point and absolutely worth your time to explore.
You can have a look at the heart of the Brainstorming Tool.
This video shows you how you can choose your topic/niche/business idea and investigate if there is demand for it, what competition you will be facing, and if you are likely to be successful on the search engines with it.
The test topic chosen is Social Media but you would use your own topic keywords, say Cake Decorating or Small Business Marketing or whatever your business is going to be about.
You can then, work through the process testing and refining until you come up with a complete blue print for your topic.
But at least you will begin your business knowing what to write about on your website because you know what everyone is searching for rather than guessing.
You won't get that if you use other proprietary platforms because that is just what they are.. just a platform.
This is why SBI is called a business builder.
As I said in the beginning, I won't recommend anything if I really don't believe in it, because I don't like falsehood, I have been subject to it myself online and I really hate it when people are not being true.
So, to show my confidence in this fantastic business builder
I am prepared to offer you a 1.5 hour coaching session session at no charge around your business idea if you purchase a subscription to SBI through my affiliate link.
I want you to be happy with your choice of business idea before you go ahead with Step 1 of the Action Guide so you don't waste precious time and you feel more confident during the brainstorming process .
These are the coaching offers I have and you can take advantage of them but
I won't be charging you anything at all
