What we are going to recommend here is a methodology for those who plan to establish their online business with a limited budget.

One of the most important factors for being successful in online business, or any business for that matter, is budget control regardless of how big or small your budget is.

First we need to define what the meaning of limited budget is. First, you need to believe in your heart that it is impossible to start and run an online business for free. Do not believe anybody who tells you otherwise.

The second rule is you need to budget at least $200 for marketing and administrative costs. To give you an idea of what these costs might be here are few examples:

1-    Administrative Cost Items:

a.    Internet Connection
b.    Hosting Service for your website (If you have one)
c.    Phone Bill.
d.    Electricity
e.    Credit Card Charges
f.    Post and Courier (If applicable)

2-    Marketing Costs (Depending on your general Strategy)

a.    Software Programs
b.    Traffic Generation Services
c.    Offline Advertising
d.    Pay Per Click
e.    Leads
f.    Autoresponder Service
g.    Any other Paid advertising Tactic

Now you can add on top of the above mentioned $200 any direct costs related to your business. Mainly this includes one or both of the following:

1-    What you have to pay to stay in business including a monthly subscription if applicable.

2-    Inventory of Products that you have to buy.

To be able to spend your budget wisely we recommend following these steps:

1-    Do not start your online marketing activity by choosing paid options. In a previous article we detailed what are your free online marketing strategy tools. We will just list them here:

a.    Submit your link(s) to directories and search engines.
b.    Write and Submit articles to article directories
c.    Reciprocal linking
d.    Posting in active forums
e.    Make your website content rich and dynamic
f.    Blog and Ping.
g.    Traffic Exchange Services

2-    Buy software programs that will help you automate the processes of the above free online marketing options. Try not to opt for subscription based services. Make sure to have software programs that have a one time payment option.

3-    After few months you will realize that you have a free amount in your budget that now you can use for paid online or offline marketing options.

Our final and sincere recommendation to you is not to get involved in any online business if you cannot spend a total of $300 - $500 per month.

Summary:
Step right up, folks. Here’s your internet success story. Here’s the cheap web host, “Cheapie.” Here’s the Get Rich Quick promo, the “GRQ”. And here’s the optimization guru, “Guru”. Let me shift them around like so. Choose one for your internet success.

Cheapie? That’s only $4.95 a month that you can lose. Plus hundreds of hours and months and months of your time figuring out how to set up a web site and make it successful. No thank you.

Step right up, folks. Here’s your internet success story. Here’s the cheap web host, “Cheapie.” Here’s the Get Rich Quick promo, the “GRQ”. And here’s the optimization guru, “Guru”. Let me shift them around like so. Choose one for your internet success.

Cheapie? That’s only $4.95 a month that you can lose. Plus hundreds of hours and months and months of your time figuring out how to set up a web site and make it successful. No thank you.

GRQ? It’s a great idea. But ask for a list of 100 or more verifiable success stories, preferably before you sign up. Oops – there are none? Surprise, surprise. The GRQ promo is particularly depressing because it appeals to the unsophisticated internet user via massive advertising campaigns.

So Guru must know something. “Divide your text by 8.63, add a factor of keywords equivalent to the density of Mars in the first quadrant, and voila!” Failure, total failure.

How do I know? I’ve tried them all. I’ve spent more money on the internet shell game than I would admit to anyone. None of them work.

Like you, I would like a really super easy, super cheap, super quick way of making my millions on the internet.

Well, it just doesn’t happen like that.

Developing a successful web site business is a lot of work. You will need to

(1) Identify a profitable, interesting topic (It has to be interesting because you’re going to spend a lot of time with it);

(2) Line up 50-100 strong keywords;

(3) Write several dozen search-engine friendly pages;

And the real zinger:

(4) Promote it effectively.

Along the way you will need to analyze competitors’ sites, track down visual content, study key word lists, learn about links, prepare for blogs and e-zines, become a site designer and a prolific writer.

It’s just not “easy”. Anyone who tells you differently is lying.

But is IS exciting, rewarding and fun. There is an immense sense of satisfaction watching your site climb in the rankings to reach the top 1% of all websites. I know – I’ve been there, too.

I don’t have an “allie-ka-zam” to make your website be successful, or even to appear. But I have the next best thing: a free ebook and free search program that will track down valuable information very quickly, no matter what your topic.

Do you need to know what keywords your competitors use? It’s covered.

How about the back links to your site, or to your competitors’ sites? It’s covered.

How about finding free and inexpensive photos and graphics. It’s covered.

So are statistical sources, tools for searching across all major search engines at once, foreign language searches, meta data searches, web site names, keyword popularity tools, and a lot more. Over 100 searches in all. Pick and choose which ones you want to use, and use them again and again. All free.

Why do I offer this? Because your success is good for my business. When your business is successful, you will come back wanting a business plan to raise financing, and that makes my site very successful. (This is one of the ways I got to the top 1% of all web sites: I give away information.)

There’s room on the internet for all of us. May we all be hugely successful!
