A long time ago in a far away galaxy , I decided to be an entrepreneur. Many businesses later, after years in asia importing gifts and advertising novelties , I wondered what I could market without a great investment in monies. Well after seeing a top ten list of wealthy individuals and how they made money ( candy, real estate, newspapers), I realized that information of a sort was a perfect vehicle as I knew nothing about candy except eating it, or real estate a I didnt have millions already, or printing presses.
What I did have was a decent marketing knowledge, sales ability and the understanding of hiring freelancers to help me build my dream.
Over the years I had hired artists, photographers, printers , writers , sales people and understood motivations, web designers etc.
So here are a few rules I developed.
don't sign anything your not forced to
don't give upfront money if you can help it.
be precise in your description of work needed.
don't change things midstream
don't be afraid to change things !!!
don't hire family. ( sorry bro ! )
do it on the cheap -
don't borrow from a credit card.
pay sales people fairly and give big commissions
I'll think of more tomorrow.....
How its made
Programs that are very helpful - tips and other stuff.
First, if you get started on a website - it never will end. Google loves to see new content. I had grand ideas for a simple 5 page site and its approaching 30 - 40 pages due to content of cartoons 240 + and counting. I wanted to do print on demand of t shirts and coffee mugs but had the idea for years to sell the cartoons for website , blog, email and newsletter content first. Its at least 40 hours to do a good basic website. Not so much the design as most good web builders do it for you . I use Mozello.com , a European company that gives you 12 months free to play around ! Others that I recommend that are easy are wix.com and for real simple sites try pagexl.com - a great single page builder free to try and starting at only 2 euros a month!
Wix is semi automatic to build a site using artificial intelligence ( really ) but has limits. Mozello - is extremely easy to se and very fast loading , especially if you learn to use a "CDN" cloudflare.com. I suggest optimizing images to make them small using Shortpixel.com and of course my favorite program to add watermarks on your photos of your products = Visualwatermark.com. Ivan the developer answers support questions quikly and has helped me tremendously . His program is fast and efficient. It even adds metadata to your photos.
And an honorable mention to my webhost IONOS.com - great support - fast .
Fiverr.com is great for inexpensive help but remember most freelancers have poor reading comprehension.
Remember alot of time is doing the small details - add keywords everywhere allowed and meta titles and meta descriptions for SEO. Backlinks take a lot of time - whats important is good content and good backlinks - not quantity.
