Today I hope to give you everything you need to set you up for your future online business so let’s get right into it
1. A resource you will need
Content- Yes Content is one of the most important marketing tools. If you don’t write great content, you will not get ranked by Google, Yahoo or Bing and to be successful, you really want to get as high as you can possibly get with the major search engines and content is your key to doing this.
When I say content, I do not mean a couple of words, I mean 1000, 1500- 2500 words that create engagement for your readers. Content that is honest and very informative and most of all with no errors.
I use Grammarly to check my work and it is the best platform I have used as a resource for having well-written content as it checks, spelling, grammar, sentence structure, in fact, everything you need so I suggest you get this resource to help you out.
I am a pretty good writer and I use it all the time as when your mind is working hard telling you what to write, you can often miss out important words, drop words, spell words incorrectly and this doesn’t look professional.
You will need an excellent Keyword research tool. Why do you need this?
Before you write an article, you need to choose your title and if you write any old title, it may have been overused and Google will not even look at your work, so a Keyword research tool is very important.
I use Jaaxy for all my keyword research and fortunately, it is built into the platform I use for all my website needs. I will tell you more about the platform I use shortly.
When you are choosing a keyword/title you need to look for a keyword that has a QSR of less than 100 as this is going to help you get seen by Google. Anything over 100 and once again, it has been overused and Google won’t take a look which you don’t want
Here is a screenshot of what Jaaxy Keyword search looks like
As you can see. I typed what I might like for a title and Jaaxy came up with my QSR, my average visitors and my SEO so if I was going to choose a title from this search, I would go with Best Basketball Shoes for Men as this looks really good. So this is what my next article would be about.
No. 3 Affiliate marketing
If you want to make income from your website, you choose to join some Affiliate Marketing Programs relating to your niche/ idea you have chosen to write about.
You can simply type your search into Google and it will look like this as an example for Affiliate Programs for Basketball Shoes and as you can see there are over 30,000,000 results for this question so you are not going to be short of Affiliate Programs for this niche
You should never have to pay to join this type of program so please remember this
4. The resource you will need
You are going to need a platform that offers you these things
- WordPress as a writing platform as it is really awesome

5. What platform do I choose?
Ok, I promised you earlier I would tell you about this great platform that has everything you need to build your online future.
Before I do, I want to say this. If you are truly serious about building an awesome online business to create the future income you need to think about what a business like this might cost to set up.
It could cost 1000’s of dollars to get just the right website and a lot of companies charge anything up to $5,000 for this service and also ongoing charges for updates, maintenance as they call it and other upsells.
A while back I found this platform to build my websites and create something I am really proud of so here you go.
