Anyone who considers starting an online business will likely have a zillion questions. It’s important to find the answers, satisfy your curiosity or skepticism and move forward. And as you progress there may be even more questions, trust me when I tell you there will be questions.
Regardless of whether your question concerns affiliate marketing, niche websites, domain selection, web hosting, Search engine optimization, social media platforms or paid traffic, you will find the answers within this community.
Below I have already answered a series of questions that I most frequently receive at Niche Website Newbie. I hope you find these answers useful, but if you have a question that you do not fine here, simply submit a comment below with you question and I will answer it promptly.
Can someone with no experience start an online business?
Niche Website Newbie is the perfect place for a complete novice to start their journey. Within the pages of this website you will learn the necessary steps to complete every task necessary to start and grow your online business. If you choose, I will become your personal coach to get you started, guide you toward success and motivate when you struggle.
There are a few requirements for making a concerted effort to succeed. The first is an internet connection and I would like to say a desktop computer or laptop, but I know of a few folks who got started on a cell (Can you imagine that?). Anyway, I recommend a computer of some type. Lastly, you will need a true desire to succeed, this journey is a challenge and I will not sugar coat that fact. But with a real interest in learning and the motivation to change your life, you will do fine.
How much money does it take to start and online business?
This is one of the true beautiful realities regarding starting an Affiliate Marketing online business. The start up costs are very low in comparison to starting any other type of business. However, just like anything else, some investment of capital will expedite the learning curve and help you reach your dream quicker.
To cut through the BS and get straight to the answer, I would advise you to expect a first year investment of about $500. I believe, I personally invested closer to $1000 in my first year, but I was not hesitant to spend money when I thought I would see a return on that investment.
Many people who are looking to supplement their income or replace a full time income with an online venture will want to start affordably and re-invest any earnings for a period of time. While this is entirely possible, I would never look to start an online business as your sole means of income. The process does not lend to making money quickly and is by no means a get rich quick opportunity.
How much time does it take to start an online business?
Here again, let’s not hesitate to get straight to the point, in most cases it will take about 6 months to 1 year of commitment to start earning an income online. The light at the end of that tunnel though is the exponential growth and scaling potential that occurs beyond meeting the initial challenges.
With respect to an actual hourly commitment, I would recommend giving your business as much time as you can spare. There will certainly be some organization required and time management is very helpful when getting started. Essentially you can expect to be writing 2 -3 articles every week and depending how proficient you become at generating content you should be willing to spend 4 to 8 hours a week on your business.
I would also like to say that although our goal is to create a passive income, you will want to continue a full time effort even beyond leaving the traditional 9 – 5 grind. One thing you will learn as you progress through the training, is that this is a business and as such should be treated as any other business. Developing a business plan, committing to the resources needed to achieve that plan (time and effort) and persistently working toward achieving that plan is the only recipe for success.

What skills are helpful when starting an online buisnes?
None, that is what we are here for and I really mean that from the bottom of my heart. Don’t get me wrong, it helps tremendously if you have a firm grasp of the English language and some grammar and writing skills, but short of that, we will teach you the rest.
If you are someone who possesses technical skills, you may find the programming stuff a bit easier. And if you are a business person or marketing professional, you may consider the logistical details to be second nature. In any event, the training that you will receive helps to round off the sharp edges and give you every tool you will need to be successful.
