Generally there are two types of people who sabotage themselves when dealing with online business. Firstly there are those who get the wrong impression that they don’t need to lift a finger to make money from the Internet. These are the people who have the mindset of get rich quick mentality. There also those who treat their online business as a hobby instead of a full fledge real serious business.

It is easy to start an Internet business but not that simple nor easy to earn a comfortable living with it. As a matter of fact, over 90% of Internet and online business flop or barely break even.

As the saying goes, it is not how the race begins that matters, it is how the race ends that matters. Many people dive into Internet Marketing and online business with the belief that they will achieve financial independence and retire early in life. There are those who just simply want to become their own boss and run their own business without knowing what it takes to become successful online.

The sad truth though is many of these people end up working longer hours, earning less pay or even become disillusioned with Internet Marketing after awhile, give up and go back to look for the 8 to 5 job.

Making money online is not difficult. The bigger question though is how much you want to make and what it takes for you to achieve your online business goals. Many people fail in making money online because they treat it as a hobby rather than a real business.

Here’s a good report by John Thornhill on why you will never succeed online. Most people look for Internet Marketing success formula instead of trying to figure out what actions or inactions if any leads to online business failure. Digest it, learn from it and take action to avoid those costly mistakes.

At first glance, it seems pretty easy to jump start any online business. Cash tight and no money to invest in online business? No problem, you don’t need much capital anyway (with the exception of the computer and Internet online access).

Don’t know how to design a website? No problem either, there are many software Internet Marketing tools that offload the technical aspect of web site design and implementation for you. You can sign up and make use of some of the automated software tools, mostly completely free of charge.

One of the best free web site building tools is BlinkWeb . Just sign up for an account and you are good to go. It is a very user friendly system and you could easily get a good website created up and running in minutes.

There are many other online free website building tools apart from BlinkWeb. The important thing to take note is that you need to find one which do not contain advertisements and banners on the website you created using free account or free membership. Sign up for one which provide options for you to seamlessly upgrade all your websites created using free account into paid services and accounts should the need arise.

If you are new to blogging and interested to give it a try, one of the best blogging platform to use is WordPress. Another blogging platform that you may wish to consider is Google sponsored blogger hosted platform.

If you are a newbie and beginner to online business, you may be curious as for a start which blogging platform should you use namely WordPress or Blogger. The various blogging platforms has its own advantages and merits and which platform you should go for depends pretty much on your blogging objective.

In my personal opinion and experience, Blogger would be a better choice in terms of flexibility to quickly setup and to incorporate Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliates into the blog. Google Adsense and Amazon affiliate marketing are two online marketing business models which you can quickly implement to earn some money.

Blogger platform comes ready with Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliate widgets installation support. You just need to follow the instructions and steps along the way to apply for Google Adsense or Amazon Affiliate account. Once the accounts are approved, you can proceed quickly to install the widget , usually with just a few mouse clicks.

You may also wish to consider other free blogging platforms such as B2Evolution, typepad and last but not least movabletype to name a few.

If you intend to monetize your blogs on a long term basis, it is strongly recommended that apart from hosted free blog platforms such as Blogger or WordPress.org you should apply for a domain URL and subscribe to a paid web hosting service company such as HostSo to host your websites and blogs.

Please refer to my previous posting on why you should not focus all your entire efforts on hosted free blogging platform services such as Google sponsored blogger platform. There are many limitations to using free hosted website or free hosted blog platform services.

Some of these limitations and restrictive terms renders free hosting services completely unsuitable for normal operation of online business. For instance, limitation in terms of disk space, databases, email addresses, FTP accounts and other host of services which is critical to the success of online business.

Free hosted blog platform such as Google blogger can be use as early staging for your online business campaigns. One of the better free hosting services that you could sign up with is freehost.

This free hosting service provides you with ample disk space of 1500MB, SQL databases, web mail, auto installer scripts and many more. You could use this hosting service to learn more about WordPress installation, themes, widgets, plug-ins and etc.
