Have you ever wanted to start your own online business? As you navigate throughout this website, you will have noticed a little image on the right hand side saying “This little square can change your life today”.
What is the square about?
If you haven’t clicked on it already, you should! It really can change your life if you are at a crossroad in your working life.
Start your own online business
We have all, at one time or another, thought of starting a business.
And with the boom of dot com businesses in the 90’s, we have often wondered if we too can get in on the action.
And then everything went bust!
But the problem with the 90’s is that online businesses then were built on ideas.
And we all know that ideas come and go. Some are practical. Others are just too out of this world to be implemented.
Today, we say build your business on passion … and global buying needs.
Turn your passion into a thriving business
The process, in actuality, is quite simple.
Do you have a passion? A hobby? A habit? Are there any products that you have to purchase to feed that passion?
I like rugby union. I bore my family and friends to death talking about the game. I would save up to attend an event on the other side of the world whenever I can.
So instead of boring just my family and friends, I find me a bigger audience to rave to: the world!
So here I am with this website. I blog on it about any topic that takes my fancy relating to my passion, rugby union.
I love reading the biographies of coaches and players. I love to share the YouTube videos of inspired games that still thrills me years after the players themselves have retired.
And for each webpage I create to share my passion, there is ad space. The ads are run by an affiliate network that reads my content and then tries to serve up ads related to that content.
(This does not always bode well, however, because one of the positions in rugby union is called hooker. And when I blog on it, you can imagine the types of ads Google sometimes serve up as a result. Good thing my passion is not cockfighting.)
But Of course I earn a little from these ads. They are part of what is funding my need to rave about my passion to the world.
I write snippets and full reviews on books. And anyone who buys from those links earns me a little commission.
You see the travel ads down the bottom of this page (Booking.com, Tripadvisor and JustYou.co.uk)? I get a share of the bookings made from those as well.
You see this article on Rent out your holiday home?:
That’s another revenue stream for my online business.
You see that little square on the right hand side?
That little square made all this happen.
And yes, I make a little from that little square as well. It is a link to the Wealthy Affiliate program. A program that gives you the tools and the know-how to start your own online business. But more than this, it gives you the opportunity to pick the brains of those who have succeeded in starting their own business online.
How to start an online business?
It takes time. It takes commitment. But first, it takes ACTION.
To start your own online business, think of all the interests you have.
Then think of what you would call your website if you were to create a website business.
I came up with “forward and back” because they are rugby union positions and they can also be a play on words in looking at the future of the game and the learning thrills of the past. I also used to play in the forward position.
Once you have identified a name for your business, you are ready to start your own website business. Just enter your new business name here:
When I first came across this, I did not have a business name in mind. But I wanted to check it out nonetheless. So I just entered in “what business is that of yours?“. Before I knew it, it took me to a page to start building my website. There was a free option. So I chose that.
Fast forward to today, I now have a proper website: forwardandback.com.
But I also have a rather ghostly website out there called “what business is that of yours?“. I got a shock one day when Wealthy Affiliate sent me a congratulations email saying my “what business is that of yours” website has been indexed by Google. I’ve got to do something about that at some point.
But here you have it. An online business started. An online business growing.
