The biggest factor that puts most people off starting up an online business is the risk. What if things go wrong?
What if they lose money? And what happens if their online business fails?
If you’ve had these worries yourself, it’s important to know that there are things you can do to reduce the risk.
To build any business online you need the tools of the trade.
A website , autoresponder , domain name , traffic generation etc.
Nearly all these tools can be found online for free but a few essential tools cost money,such as advertising.
Advertising costs money ,even though you can get a truck load for free, you still have to pay for some.
Smart Ways to Start an Online Business & Not Lose Your Shirt.
Keep to a monthly budget that you can afford. Create a marketing funnel——squeeze page, free gift, autoresponder etc.
Take it seriously: You should treat your online business as you would any other job and give it 100% effort.
Too many people start-up a business and fall at the first post because they fail to do this.
Don’t expect overnight success: Although some people do achieve great success within a relatively short time,
they are usually the exception to the rule. Understand that starting up an online business is no different to starting
any type of business – it takes time to grow.
Keep your day job: In the early days it is wise to keep your day job, unless you have at least six months of cash to live on.
That way you’re not putting yourself under pressure to pay your personal expenses from your business in the early days.
Choose a business that interests you: It’s amazing how many people launch an online business that doesn’t interest or
inspire them on any level, apart from its money-making potential. It’s much easier to motivate yourself if you’re doing something you love.
Don’t bet the farm: Keep your start-up expenses as low as possible. Don’t spend money on things that won’t help
you to produce your product or service, or sell more of it.
Get rid of your debts: It’s a smart idea to reduce your personal debts as much as possible before starting up an online business.
That way, when you do quit your job, you have fewer expenses to cover.
Is Starting Up An Online Business Right For You?
When you’re considering taking the leap, it’s easy to let fear get in the way and talk you out of starting up an online business.

If you want to escape the rat race, you’re self motivated, willing to learn and you’re passionate about your chosen business what have you got to lose? Starting up an online business may be the best thing that ever happened to you but you won’t know unless you try.
There is no secret to working and earning online. Sure everyone is telling you they know the secret, but if it is a secret why are they telling you.
No, the way to earn money online is the same as offline. You have a good product and you introduce others to it.
