Why Get Started Now
Before I answer that question. I wanna start by saying that there are 3 different types of people who come online to make money.
Here’s the 3 types of people that come online:
- one who just wants to make some extra cash (a hobbyist)
- one who wants to get rich quick (make money fast)
- one who builds a real business (takes things seriously)
Which type are you?
I can honestly say that I was the first one. All I wanted to do was make some extra cash so I can go out, have some fun with my wife and kids. That’s it.
Not for one second did I think or believe that I would be in the position that I’m at today.
- working from home
- taking very nice family vacations
- doing whatever we want, whenever we want
- earning full time pay from a laptop
It wasn’t until one day, on my way to the bank to deposit some internet money checks and my full time job check, that I notice I was making twice as much online than from my 9 to 5 job.
That’s when I realized that this thing really does work. So I went from being a hobbyist to a person who wanted to build a real business. I began to take things very serious.

So back to the question. Why get started now?
Well only you can really answer that question for yourself. I don’t know what kind of situation you’re in or what your goals are. Just know that what ever you’re doing now, whatever type of person you are, whatever situation you’re in, that YOU can make money online.
Money CAN be made easy and fast. But, and a BIG BUT, you need to start with the basics. You need to go through the learning curve before you can start making that easy, fast cash.
It does not happen overnight. You have to put some kind of work and effort into this. In order to live the “easy life” you must put the sweat and tears into it from the beginning. You do that, and you can’t fail.
This is why this getting started section is important for you to begin with. You want to make some kind of internet money right? So you need some kind of internet property, (site, blog, etc).
The most important thing you need to start with is a website for people to come visit. I recommend starting with a simple blog. Reason I say this is because these days, you can use a blog for just about anything.
Things you can do:
- create squeeze pages
- create sales pages
- build niche sites
- build a list
- build a loyal following
The possibilities are endless.
In the next section I’m going to show you how you can create a simple blog in less than 2 minutes.
So let’s begin shall we ;-)
Getting Started – Domain & Hosting
Before we can get to creating your blog, you have two decisions to make.
- Choose a domain
- Choose whether to go free or self hosted website
To choose the right domain, it all depends what you’re targeting. For example. If you’re building niche sites, then you want to get a domain that’s keyword rich. Let’s say you’re targeting the “Lose 5 Pounds by your Wedding Day” niche.
You’ll want a domain like “www.lose5poundsbyyourweddingday.com”. Now this is just a brief example, you’ll of course have to do a little more research to find the right domain for your niche site.
Another example is a branding site. This is a brand that you build for you. My brand is “Income Press” so my domain is IncomePress.com. A great way to build your brand, especially if you’re going to be the face of it, is to get a domain with your name in it.
Now for the free or self hosting. I highly recommend you going self hosted vs free.
Let me explain why:
- With FREE hosted site, you run into annoying banner ads you can’t get rid of, can’t really get a good keyword rich domain, you end up with a domain like “www.incomepress.blogger.com instead of www.incomepress.com. Not sexy and way to long.
- You have little to no control on what to do over your sites. For example, I like to use fully customized themes, some of those free sites limit what you can do and what themes you can use.
For this alone is why I highly recommend you going self hosted. You’ll have complete control over your sites and you can literally build and create whatever you want.
For a good quality hosting company, I recommend using BlueHost. It’s what I use for this very blog you’re on now. They’re great, reliable, and their support is awesome. Anytime I need something, they are there 100%. They even got Live chat support which I love and use when I need help.
Here’s a video I made walking you through the exact steps to setting up your blog with bluehost. It’s not hard at all and you can actually get it up and running in under 2 minutes.
