Internet Business Free Resources
Create an Internet Business Using Only Free Resources
By Donovan Baldwin
There's an old saying, "It takes money to make money." While this is still true in many respects, on the internet, it is possible to start and grow an online business using free resources.
You don't even need a computer! In many parts of the world, it is possible to get free computer access at a public library or other facility. However, it is also possible to become involved in some systems that can be promoted entirely offline by word-of-mouth, and signing up could be done at one of the free computers I mentioned or be done by a friend.
Don't get me wrong. I don't want to imply that it is easier or faster to completely use free resources; I am just making the point that it is possible to create an internet business with little or no money.
How do I know this?
Other than the purchase of the computer itself, I never bought my first domain name until I had been online for a couple of years and was making several hundred dollars a month from my internet business. All of my websites were hosted on free hosting services, and all my "advertising" was done through free classified ads, traffic exchanges, and by linking.
However, despite all of this, and a magnificent case of ignorance, I eventually DID begin making hundreds of dollars a month. I then used THAT income to get my own domain name, in fact many domain names today, and to purchase effective advertising. But, as you can see, it is possible to start without any money at all.
In fact, I would recommend starting for free even if you have the money to invest, just to learn the ropes. I can't begin to tell you how much money I have lost on things that didn't work, and how much I paid to get the internet marketing education I now have. On the other hand, if I had to start all over today, knowing the things I know now, I would borrow the money if I had to, buy domain names, hire website designers, and pay for advertising. But you want to know how to do it for free.
So, how would someone go about creating an internet business using only free resources?
Before I begin listing some points, please understand that this is just one way in which an online business can begin. Due to all the variables involved, what topic you pick, how much time you can devote to it, and so on, there is no way to guarantee that this will work for you. However, it is a method that HAS worked for others, and it is a place to start.
