10 Ways to Start a Small Business Online NZ

Would you like to know how to create your own online business?

 

Even better, what if I said you can do it virtually for free?

(This is the NZ version of this post)

These days, it seems almost everybody is either doing business online or knows of someone who is. Having your own online business is something many aspire to, but without the right information and advice few will turn it into reality.

The truth is, you can make money online.

There, I’ve said it!

The downside is that there is no such thing as a Free Lunch, so if you aspire to joining the ranks of those of us making a living (and sometimes a very good one) with just a computer and an internet connection, you’ll need to have a plan and be prepared to WORK at it! Ambition without action is just a dream, after all.

Yes, there are a million and one web pages out there that will promise you anything from Hundreds to Thousands of Dollars a week with very little effort (and just a small outlay, of course) but the only ones making a living from most of them would be the ones trying to get between you and your money.

What is bUnited, and Is This Legit, or Is It a Pyramid Scam?

I received the following message on my LinkedIn profile recently.

I just joined bUnited. You might also be interested.

Now if there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my time as an affiliate marketer and blogger, it’s summed up in one sentence. Believe Nothing, Trust No-one, Check Everything! (Actually, that’s three things, but you’ll get my drift) In fact, I even have a sign on the wall near my desk with the letters BTC in large, bold text.

Here’s the sign, I just snapped it with my iPad.

Having never heard of bUnited before, and being the skeptical soul I am, I assumed it was some sort of scam. Nevertheless, I thought I’d check it out.

Before using the link, I googled bUnited and quickly found their webpage. Here it is if you want to take a look.

Is BuilderAll worth the money, or is it just another scam?

 

Okay, let’s cut to the chase. BuilderAll is NOT a scam. BuilderAll is a product/system designed to help anyone with setting up an online business. It does have its limitations, however, and in this unbiased BuilderAll review I’ll attempt to sort the wheat from the chaff and give you an honest appraisal of the BuilderAll Platform.

Chances are that you’ve recently heard about the Legendary Marketer Club and you’re wanting to know whether Legendary Marketer is a genuine opportunity to make money online or another rip-off scam.

If this is the case, I don’t blame you for being a tad sceptical. I’ve looked into heaps of online money-making schemes and yes, it’s true, a huge number of them are nothing but scams designed to separate you from your hard-earned money. Some aim to do this as quickly as possible. Others will attempt to hook you into a slow drip, like the proverbial frog in hot water, until you feel you have invested so much already, you just have to keep going.

In this Legendary Marketer review, I’ll be attempting to cut through the hype and tell it like it is so you can make an informed decision about investing in David Sharpe’s newest offering. Read more

Can you Make Money Selling CBD With HempWorx?

 

I have several websites, and on one of them I promote the many benefits of Medicinal Cannabis. my daily choice hempworx - hempworx com

In particular, the main therapeutic ingredient; CBD.

I was recently contacted by another online CBD affiliate and invited to join the HempWorx program.

Now, I readily admit I hadn’t heard of HempWorx before, so I decided to do some research. After all, It’d be foolish of me to overlook another potential income stream.

So What is the HempWorx Program?

My Internet Journey

I first discovered the ‘net way back in 1994. In those days, it was all dial-up connections and pages that took up to several minutes to load. Boy, we were a patient lot back then!

I guess I always knew the internet was going to become big for business, but no-one, I’m sure, could forecast the internet as we see it today. I, and most people I know, never dreamed that it would become so easy (and, some say, so hard in many ways) for ordinary folk like you and me to become online entrepreneurs and be running our own internet businesses.

Keyword Research Tools Explained.

What is a Keyword Research Tool, and Why Do We Need One?

 

Keyword Research is the Cornerstone of Successful Internet Marketing.

 

Imagine this: You’ve spent hours building your website. You’ve written informative, engaging copy. You’ve added images and diagrams, internal and external links. In fact, you’ve built a web presence you can really be proud of.

You publish the site, promote it on social media, get indexed by the search engines, and you wait for visitors. And you wait… Nothing!  Six months later you’re still waiting.

So what went wrong?You Need a Traffic Strategy

In all probability, you failed to perform proper keyword research.

 


 

It’s one thing to know what items you wish to promote, and what sort of things internet users may be searching for. It’s another thing altogether to know precisely what they are entering into the search box and how to utilise that knowledge.

It’s also another thing to know just how many websites there are out there competing for the same search terms, or keywords.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

 

 learn to build your own online businessFor the uninitiated, affiliate marketing is a term used to describe the common practice of posting ads or links into a website in return for payment. This payment could be on a pay-per-click (PPC) or a commission basis or some other arrangement. The job of the affiliate marketer is to create and publish content that people will want to read.

When I say “content”, I could be referring to a travel blog, a writers’ website, a fishing site, whatever. You could publish articles that either answer a question or supply information that someone has searched the web for. It could be as simple as “What’s the best blender for home use” or “How to do crocheting” or “What’s the best fishing lure for Coral Trout”.

HREFLANG tags: Can They Help Your Rankings?

.

What are HREFLANG tags, and can they boost your SERP results?

What is a Good HREFLANG Tags Generator?

And more importantly…

Do We Need to Have HREFLANG Tags on our Websites?

In this post, I’ll answer these questions and more. Hreflang tags are something every webmaster needs to understand – even if you decide not to use them yourself.

Hreflang tags (pronounced aitch-ref-lang) are a Google initiative. They were developed in 2011, and intended to advise Google when websites have identical or similar articles aimed at visitors in alternate languages.

It makes sense then, that Google would want us to implement them whenever and wherever appropriate.

use a good hreflang tags generator
Hreflang tags will help show your website to the right audience. (Image courtesy of Pixabay)

If you write posts or page articles that are directed exclusively towards one audience, eg. en-us for English speakers living in the USA, then you needn’t bother with hreflang at all. This would also apply if your site wasn’t directed at any specific zone, and only written in one language. Search engines are perfectly capable of working out what language your website is written in.

(There’s a bit more information further on in this article dealing with Geographic Targeting using Google Search Console)

However, if your site has articles with similar content written in various languages or dialects, you should be using these indicators.
