How To Start an Internet Business
"That Is Found"

A person looking for Start an Internet Business begins their search by looking for the instant mashed potato route: (1) Quick...build a websitre in an hour and (2) Easy...complete these easy 5 steps and you're in business!

This is not a road for sure fire success.

I’ll tell you why they do it, why this method seldom, if ever, works and one proper way to make sure your time and dollar effort pays off.

You’ll see why starting an online business is more easy than starting a brick and mortar type store in a strip shopping center.

Based on more than 40-years of starting and growing both online and offline businesses I’ll share my and 100’s of other entrepreneur experiences.

This will be a frank discussion.

Please take the time to read further.


Why the Search for Quick and Easy?

We are all so busy and want answers now, I understand. I do too!

No, I truly believe it’s not because folks are lazy, they lack motivation or think they too can make millions of dollars using the Internet easily.

No, I believe it’s because they actually do go on the Web and run across thousands of craftily worded websites promoting and promising all kinds of $$$ rewards, if the visitor to their website would only purchase their product.

In brief, the pitches resemble these:

  1. Have your website up and running in less than an hour, a day, a week, etc., we’ll show you how.
  2. Buy our product and get free hosting.
  3. We host your website for $10 (or whatever) a month.
  4. We’ll even make a website for you so you can start attracting visitors from all over the world.

Gosh, if only any of the above showed even the tiniest possibility of your making money, then the population of the whole world would know how to start an Internet business the easy way…and they would!!

But, success in life is not like that. Success in business is not like that.

I could bore you with 10-pages written about each of the above 4 pitches and why they absolutely don’t work. But I’ll spare you.

Why these Instant Mashed Potatoes Pitches Fail?

Here are 3 solid FACTS why Failure is Always Guaranteed if you follow any of the 4 pitches listed above:

  1. Search on Google for, “How to Start an Internet Business.” Up pops page 1 of 659,000,000 results pages in 0.25 seconds.  What are the odds of your website being found closer to page 659,000,000 than page 1? ANSWER: 100%
  2. When was the last time you went to page 3, page 4 or pages 5 through 659,000,000? That’s why 99% of ALL websites fail to attract any traffic except by the relatives of the Webmaster!
  3. When was the FIRST TIME any pitch you found online about how to start an Internet business showed you absolute PROOF that you (not them) could make more than hobby money using their product? Well, I only found ONE!! 

How to Start an Internet Business Successfully

With the above background, as a demonstration of how not to do it, we now turn to a way that is highly successful and has demonstrated proof that it works!

NOTE: Before selecting any "Hosting" or "Website Building Program"...for you to build an online business that will earn you more than pocket change YOU MUST, let me say this again, YOU MUST "make sure" they can show you PROOF that the system works.

This is "Absolutly" the "KEY" to you having any degree of success!


  1. Have an Idea.
  2. Look for an Internet Business Builder who will guide you step-by-step in every detail as you build a “business” website.
  3. Look for a company that will show you exactly how to position your online business idea in the best sales niche possible in the marketplace that will earn you the most income.                                                                                        
  4. The best keywords to use on every page of your Site in terms of your competition and profitability.
  5. The $$ value of each keyword you consider using the “Google Adwords” prospective so you maximize your income potential.
  6. How to set up your online business social media accounts with a couple of clicks of your mouse.
  7. How to “Mobilize” your Site for all mobile devices in less than 15 minutes (even if you’re a novice).
  8. Positive PROOF that their “business” website building methodology has worked for the last 20-years or so, that thousands of entrepreneurs are real fans of it and that their "how to start an Internet business course" is taught in over 30 Colleges and Universities
  9. You may contact hundreds of these entrepreneurs, “prior” to making a purchase, to obtain an unscripted opinion of it (Who else encourages you to do that? ).
  10. Finally, look for a how to start an Internet business company that handles all the ever changing technical behind-the-scenes stuff without you having to spend your valuable time doing it (and having to keep up with all the changes coming from the search engines)
  11. Make sure this company offers a world-class Forum where thousands of folks volunteer their time to help other entrepreneurs be successful. All for free.
  12. Look for all this (and lots more) for less than $30 a month including hosting

My life has changed forever once I found that PROOF.

As a result I invested my time and a small amount of $$$ to build this Website.

My life is far better because of it!
