Getting Started With Your Own Online Business
Hi, I’m Alex, the owner and founder of Extra Paycheck. This page was created specifically for people who are new to online marketing, blogging and making money online. If that’s you than this page is where you need to start. Here I’ll share the information that will help you get started with your own online business.
What Is It All About?
In this short video I explain exactly what I’m doing to make a living online. My 5 day free email course will reveal all the juicy details you need to know in order to start your own successful business, without investing a single dime of your hard earned cash.
Reality of Making Money Online.
There are a few myths about internet marketing and I need to expose them so you don’t get the wrong idea.
1. Success Doesn’t Happen Overnight
Many gurus and internet marketers will try to persuade you that you can make $2,857 per day starting tomorrow. Unfortunately this is simply impossible. We are all human and we want everything YESTERDAY. Marketers know this and they play on our emotions, they try to sell hype and false hopes to us. The truth is that making money takes time, especially at the beginning. It took me about 4-5 months to start earning $2,000-$3,000 per month. For some people it’ll take a year to get to that point; there are just so many variables which makes this time frame hard to predict. However, one thing’s for sure: You won’t start making a bunch of money tomorrow.
2. Starting an Online Business is NOT Easy
Just like selling “success overnight” promises, many scammers do a great job selling “Done For You Systems”. When I was just starting my internet marketing journey I was very naive and easily impressed. I must admit that I have wasted a fare share of money on such products as:
- “It Only Takes 3 Mouse Clicks And You’ll Have a Business Making 7 Figures Per Year” – yours for only $97
- “Underachiever Reveals Secret Google Formula That’ll Earn Millions Without You Doing a Single Thing” – for one easy payment of $199.99!
- “Simply Answer Short Surveys And Earn Up To $200 Per Hour”
… if it was that easy we’d all be rich by now. Starting and building a successful online business takes time as I already told you but it also takes a lot of effort and even more action taking. The Internet is full of information on how to do all of that but you’ll need to apply yourself. Once again, the secret “Get Rich Quick” shortcut to millions simply does not exist.
3. Making Money Online is Possible
In late 2007 I quit my office job. In early 2008 my online earnings have surpassed my “ex” paycheck. Throughout the years I’ve met a lot of people that were doing the same thing as me. I’ve met a few guys who are earning 6 figures per month and although I am far from that level of income I know that it’s possible to make a lot of money with an online business. So yes, you can make an honest income online. Once again, it won’t happen overnight and you’ll have to invest time and efforts but you can certainly do it!
What You Need to Get Started.
Setting up an online business is rather simple and can be done with very low to zero investment which makes it a lot more attractive than starting a “regular business”, like opening a shop in your town. Here is what you’ll need:
- Traffic (website visitors)
- Content that converts visitors into customers
- Products to promote on your site
More importantly you need proper training and support to help you out with the steps above. You see when I was first starting I didn’t know how to build a website. I didn’t know how to get traffic to the website. I didn’t know how to choose good products to sell and I had no idea how to produce good content. It took me quite a while to put all the pieces together and understand how everything works.

When I started making money I’ve had a lot of friends asking me to explain what exactly I was doing.

Remember that in my email course I’ll explain where to get free websites, how to get traffic (for free) and how to start earning money from your website.
