What does it take to start an online business? When starting your online journey everyone has this question. There are a lot of correct answers and a lot of bad answers here’s what I found. The first thing is, there will always be a cost. When you see someone online talking about earning $500.00 a day for free, that’s either misleading or false. What you should ask yourself is what are you willing to pay to start making money online. So the two primary payments in starting a online business is time capital and financial capital. Your personal position in life will determine which you will have to invest the most. Both are required when starting but both aren’t equal. Most of us don’t have large amounts of money if any to start invest money at the beginning. Investing the time to learn how to generate traffic using free methods is fundamental. pick one maybe two platforms tops and learn how to effectively build those before expanding to others. All social media platforms have there pros and cons you will learn this as part of your training. Taking the time to build theses ecosystems for your success will pay off. The faster you can build a platform and start making money the fast you can reinvest your earnings and start scaling. The end game should be you spending a portion of what you earn to maintain or grow, this will allow you to work on furthering your education and reaching you goals faster.
