Before we get into this I just want to tell you that the information that I’m about to give you is going to make a lot of internet marketers upset for leaking this type of information. But at the end of the day who cares, you need it so I’ll supply it.If you’ve been doing your research and actually making an attempt then you’ve probably come across e-books sell for like $100-$1000. You feel like the only way to start an online business is to buy one of these e-books because it has everything you need.The honest truth is you don’t need to buy those expensive e-books (unless you want to) in order to start and run an online business.Here are some tips to help you start your online business for free or on a small budget:Tip 1 – The first thing that you need is a website. You do not need to go to a web designer to have a high traffic website there are a lot of free software products like NVU that can help you create a high converting capture page in no time. The only thing that you do need to pay for is hosting unless you decide to start a blog which is free with blogger and WordPress.Tip 2 – The key to online success is an autoresponder that actually works. An autoresponder is an emailing system that distributes your emails to your list. For example, say you have 100 people under your mailing list and you want to inform them about a new product. What you can do is write one email and send that one email to those one hundred people with a single click. I highly recommend Aweber, so check that out when you get the chance.Tip 3- In order to have a successful business you are going to need traffic and the best way to generate and large amount of targeted leads for free is by writing and submitting articles. All you do is write a bunch of articles and submit them to article directories such as EzineArticles.That’s pretty much it, and by the way if you sum up the total cost for this, it’s about $25-$30 per month. So apply these simple tips to your online business and watch it grow like tall grass.
