Online Training. Business Educational Concept.Have you ever wondered if you could start your own business…and succeed! Have you considered taking your motivation online and wanted to know how to start a website business?

There are many great resources online: from free to paid, or even a combination of the two (ideal). But how do you know which one is right for you? Simple: search for online training companies that lets you start for free.

Tip: if they don’t offer free training…move on…there’s plenty more websites that do.

What Should You Look For From Online Training?

Whether you’re a beginner or expert and you’re looking for training on starting and building out your own website then you deserve to have the chance to check it out free, whether that’s for a trial period or indefinitely.

Too many training websites want money first and then will “open their vaults of secrets”. You don’t need that; there’s just too much information available online nowadays to have to pay first. There are no secrets. You are going to succeed through your own hard work and perseverance.

What you want is some time to be allowed to check out the training yourself, involving yourself with their community (if they have one), even creating your own site. One thing you shouldn’t be doing is buying into the hype that “we will build it for you”. Who’s site is it then?

Don’t Look For The Money First

Don’t put the cart before the horse. Don’t go looking for a golden egg when you don’t even have the nest built yet. Scammers are screaming from the rooftops to “sign up here”, “make money on autopilot”, or “how I made a thousand dollars a minute”…OK, that last one was a little exaggerated but you get the picture.

  • A successful business, whether online or storefront, must start with a foundation.
  • And that foundation starts with knowledge.
  • And that knowledge comes from learning

With the right training and the right support community you can make this work. Just make sure that you walk before you run, especially anyone new to online marketing.

  1. Great post Rick. Especially the “Don’t Look For The Money First” quote. That was one mistake I made when I first started.

    • I think a lot of us saw dollar signs before we realized how bogus the charlatans were. Hopefully we get out early enough to not spend our last dollar on false hopes.

  2. Great post, Rick. You were thoroughly honest in your description of Wealthy Affiliate and you know your stuff! I hope your readers will take you up on your free website offer and try it for a week at least at the free level. If they ever get into the training lessons, they’ll know that this is something far more valuable than the scammers’ get rich quick schemes.


  3. Great article rick. I have started my IM business a couple of minths ago and i am just starting to make some money.

    • Hey, that’s great news. As we continue to build our sites and make money we just need to continue to rinse and repeat. Congrats to you.
