How To Start Your Own Business.

Let me ask some questions. What is your favorite hobby? What do you do for fun and relaxation? How involved are you? I mean, do you partake of your hobby every day or is it something you do only a few times a year? Are there a lot of people (in your area) that share the same hobby? How much money have you spent on your hobby? Think about that one, think carefully… Do you have all the equipment and materials? Do you have the books and brochures? Do you have the t-shirt and bumper sticker, the fridge magnet? When you think about it, it doesn’t matter what your hobby, there is a lot of stuff you could purchase to get the most enjoyment out of it.

Every body has a diversion that they do to unwind, re-group or simply enjoy doing at the end of a long hard week. It doesn’t matter how obscure, your hobby, there are others that share in its enjoyment. Now with the simply outrageous numbers of people using the internet, it is easy to connect with those people. Or, to introduce new people to the activity that you enjoy. Whether you are Joe Super (insert your hobby here), or just partake on the odd weekend, you are in a position to take that hobby to the next level and make money from it. Remember how much money you have spent and think about getting a chunk of that from others entering or getting more involved in your hobby.

Take Your Hobby To The Next Level.

It doesn’t matter if you are the master (of your hobby) with all the bells and whistles and bumper stickers or if you are just getting started. You have something that you can share with others. A lot of others! This is where the ‘business’ comes in. You have a hobby, something you do that brings you pleasure and relaxation. Look online, it doesn’t matter how obscure your hobby is, there are others doing the same thing. Some are more into it than you, some less. The point is that you have an opportunity to present your hobby in front of four billion people. How can this be a business?

When you enjoy something it is (relatively) easy to talk about it. It’s fun to relate what you did on the weekend to co-workers or friends. If you are passionate about it, your friends feel that and quite often start to become more and more interested in your hobby. Now there is a way to relate your experiences to more than just your co-workers or friends. You can excite millions and millions people from all over the world to get interested in your hobby. Now, remember how much money you have spent on equipment and materials? You are going to offer these people the same equipment and materials.


Affiliate Marketing.

Before you tell me that you do not manufacture hobby equipment, let me quickly tell you about affiliate marketing. Almost every manufacturer and retailer has an affiliate program. This is simply a program where you would get somebody to purchase something from (lets say store X) then store X would pay you for referring a customer. This is just a simple interpretation but you can learn exactly about affiliate marketing here. Maybe you have an extremely flamboyant personality and you’re able to talk face to face with thousands of people (about your hobby). Maybe (like me), you’re a bit shy and have a hard time with that… It doesn’t matter, you can hide behind the protection of a real cool website that does all the hard work for you. Websites are no longer scary by the way, you can have a professional looking site up and running in minutes for free. You can learn about how to build a free website here.

Once you get your website up and running all you have to do is have fun and write about your experiences and your hobby. Depending on your passion and effort you could build a large following very quickly. And don’t tell me that you can’t write because there is (free) software available that can make any grade three graduate sound like Hemingway (maybe not quite) I can explain more about that here. As you start to build a following, your readers will inevitably start to trust you. They will have shared some of the same experiences and that special hobby equipment that you are using will become interesting to them. They will ask you where they can get it and you send them (through your affiliate link) to the manufacturer. If they purchase it, the manufacturer will send you compensation.

Four Billion People.

It is estimated that there will be four billion people using the internet this year. Out of those 4,000,000,000 I am sure that you will be able to get your website in front of enough of them to make a fairly decent income. It will not happen overnight, affiliate marketing is not a get-rich-quick scam, it is a legitimate business. Like all legitimate businesses it requires time and effort and yes, capital. Unlike a conventional type of business, its less, a lot less. Imagine that (within the first year) you would be able to get your website in front of only 1 percent of the people online. Maybe, only one percent of those would show any interest. Now, if you could get only one percent of those to purchase items from you totaling ten dollars each you would earn $40,000. your first year. As you build trust with your site and become more respected, the numbers of visits will increase and the numbers of conversions with it. As you go from 1% to 10% your income will grow exponentially!

Most of us still need a full time job (just to make ends meet), we don’t have a lot of time for our hobbies and even less time to share our experiences online. That doesn’t matter… It only takes a few hours a week to do everything that you need to do to start your own business. Of course the more time you can commit to your business (especially in the beginning) the faster you will be able to grow.

  1. You are spot on 100% with this article. I started my online business 2 and a half years ago and thought I was going to fail at it. But you are so right, you just have to talk like you’re talking with a friend as you write your content and you can’t go wrong because that’s what Google loves; readable content! Because of this I am now doing this full-time, it is my job and I love everything about it. Creating an online business was the best thing I ever did. I’m happy to see that you’re inspiring others to do the same 🙂

    • Thanks Brandon…   That’s awesome that you have created a full time income in only a few short years, especially after thinking it wouldn’t work. I love to hear about success stories and I’m doing my best to help others succeed too. The platform at Wealthy Affiliate is absolutely incredible and the training and support amazing.

  2. Hi Robb, this is a great article and 4 billion is an absolutely insane number.  In marketing just to have a small sliver of that 4 billion would make many people very rich.

    I do have my online business and I do still have a full time job.  As for time I have made a commitment to do something on my business at least once every day.  Even if once in a while it is only five minutes.  Once I started doing this I quickly started to see a lot more happening with my website and with my business.

    Thank you for a great article.  How many websites do you think a person really can handle especially on a full or part time business.


    • Thanks Dale…  I think in the beginning, at least for the first six months or so just a single website is good. We don’t want to get caught up in the shiny object syndrome.  Once you have learned the basics and your site is starting to build momentum there really is no limit (other than time) to how many sites or niches you could promote. As long as you can maintain good content go nuts!   Let’s all have fun and make money!!!

  3. Hi Rob, what a great way to demonstrate how easy it is to make money online by highlighting one’s hobby or interest, why not make money from that! I love that you’re referring to Wealthy Affiliate in such low key manner, yet at the same time you’re sharing lots of helpful information discussing how to make money online through affiliate marketing. It’s so true that affiliate marketing can be and is a very real way of making money online. Yes it takes time and effort, but if your site is about what you’re already interested in, it’s much easier to spend your precious time on it. I love how you’ve written this post. Thanks for sharing. 

    • Thanks Kat…  It easy to get passionate about your hobbies, what is sales other than being passionate about what you have?

  4. Hello Robb,

    Your post is commendable. I am in business, and as long as I remember, I have always been is business. However my dream has always been to find a way to do business with less physical involvement. Your post contains a wealth of information. 

    I am learning about affiliate business because it is a new concept to me. Since I connected to Wealthy Affiliate, I met a ton of information that I digesting. Gradually, I am gaining knowledge and, hopefully, I will start making money soon. I agree with you, choosing the right niche and the right product defines success or failure in this endeavor.


    • Hi Antoinette…  Thank you for the comment.  Yes product is important but I don’t think that there are a lot of ‘bad’ products. The trick is to find the people who would be interested in those products.  An obscure product may be an easier sale than something that is main stream. There is an abundance of suppliers for mainstream products and competition is fierce. If you are the only one selling an obscure product(s) its just a matter of finding the (few) people interested in that product and letting them know you have it. Success may take a while but stick to it, don’t give up and you will succeed. With the training and support available at Wealthy Affiliate you will learn everything needed to start and maintain a successful on line business.  Good luck.  I know you will reach your goals.

  5. Thanks Robb for this post. You make starting a business real. Everyone reading this post will understand that they can start an online business doing what they already love to do. And it’s more interesting to know that 4 billion potential customers are already waiting. All we need do is get the product in front of them! 

    • That is the trick…  getting your product in front of people. Having so many people online right now though, the only way to fail is not to try. 

  6. affiliate marketing is a brilliant market to start an online business in and with 4 billion people using the internet there is always customers who will by in every niche. 

    It’s a very exciting industry as if you have a hobby as you say then it’s a perfect way to break into affiliate marketing. 

    • It really is an exciting time. never before have we had access to this kind of traffic and its growing daily. It doesn’t matter how obscure your hobby is, there are enough people online that you will be able to profit from it.  The Wealthy Affiliate platform can give you everything you need to start and maintain a successful business!

    • This is a good question William. There is so much crap on the internet about making a million dollars a day without spending a penny or doing any work. We all know this is simply not possible. Affiliate marketing is a legitimate business and as such requires time, effort and capitol to make it work. There are ways of keeping the amount of capitol low, very low. (I have a student who does not own a computer and does two hour sessions on the free computers at the library). There are also people who realize the opportunity right away and jump in spending cash like crazy.
      I am pretty frugal and started out using a crappy tablet, I have since purchased a real nice HP laptop (it is a treat for achieving a goal). I signed up for the free membership at Wealthy Affiliate and took the free website from them too. The training is nothing short of brilliant! It wasn’t long before I opted into the premium membership (I think the first month was $19).
      Nothing is free but it is really inexpensive to get started affiliate marketing. You could realistically get things happening for less than $65 a month.

  7. It is so enlightening to see such success with what wealthy affiliate can bring to optimistic hard working people. This article is great and extremely motivational. You really do explain how easy it is to get started and what will follow with some dedication. Thank you!

    • Thank you Amanda… Nothing is ‘easy’ but when you enjoy the actual doing it becomes quite simple. Put your head down and stick to it, the way to fail is to not do it.
