Hello and welcome to my blog.
My name is Jeff Whenman, I am a grandfather of 4 and I live just outside Bury St Edmunds in the UK. I have spent around 20 of the past 30 years working from home, self employed as my own boss.
I have sold and marketed products from dish washer soap to solar panels, from nail clippers to investment bonds. I don’t say this to impress you, just to impress upon you that you can make a profit selling almost anything from home, working online.
You can find a group of unique products, you can build a customer base and you can do this from anywhere in the world. Making money online is not difficult, the difficulty is in understanding what works and what does not.
Anybody of average intelligence can build a business online, part time, without interfering with their current employment. The reason most people fail, is that they give up before they have fully understood the mechanisms that create success online. Many people become overwhelmed by the vast quantities of advice online and give up.
People often start a business based on an interest or a hobby which they would like to monetize, this group of people have the highest failure rate not only on the web but also on the High St.
In my local town people often re mortgage their home, start a small business in one of the side street shops, usually a business built around an interest of theirs, six months later they have run out of money and have to close.
Starting a business based on a hobby or interest rarely works on or offline.
The way to approach making money online is to look for what is already working and then copy the formula.
Keep your hobby as a hobby and don’t ruin it by turning it into a failing business.
A number of business models already exist that you can copy, a number of product types sell well online, many simple business building activities are easy to learn and not time consuming to implement.
My advice would be that you do not start building a business just yet. I have spent over 18 years generating customers online, I have seen all of the crooks and charlatans and their schemes to reel people in with the promise of a fast buck.
I would join a community of people already having success online, learn from that community what is working and what is not, then make a decision about how you would like to proceed and with which products or services.
I have looked at most of the online business communities out there, many revolve around affilliate marketing, drop shipping, crowd funding, online shops etc, the failure rate in these communities is often 95% or more.
The community I find that breaks making money online into simple, inexpensive, actionable steps is the Global Home Based Business Academy. Operating in over 180 countries, with thousands of successful students already helped over the last 10 years, I find their methods easy to understand and their instructions easy to follow.
