Article Body: Have you ever thought about starting your own internet business? The
internet is growing at an amazing rate, and with more and more people feeling confident
about making cash purchases online, having your own internet business can become a
reality.

One of the first things to consider when starting an internet business is what your goals
are. You need to have a clear goal set as to how much money you want to make, so you
will keep focused during the initial start up. Do you want to replace your current income?
Maybe you just want to make some extra money to pay off your mortgage, or go on an
exclusive vacation. Whatever your goal is, determine a definite dollar amount, and write
it down.

Many people avoid this first step, and start their online business with no idea of how
much profit they want. Then they become frustrated because they aren't making enough
money from their business. How will you know if you are making enough money if you
don't determine the amount first? So make it your first priority to identify a dollar amount
that you want to earn from your own internet business business.

The next step is to decide if you have all the skills you need to start an online business.
Can you build a web page? Do you understand the various methods of getting traffic to
your website? Have you decided how you will handle cash transactions online, and do
you understand how they work? These are the basic skills you will need. Many people
outsource the majority of set up work, but you still need to understand how it all fits
together. There can be a steep learning curve to become fluent in the technology of doing
business online. Allowing yourself the time to learn the basics of internet business will
save you from a lot of frustration.

Now that that is out of the way, the next thing you want to do is find a profitable business
model that you can follow. There are many different programs that offer online business
information. A word of caution, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Use
common sense when you are looking at these different types of online businesses. Many
programs cater to people with advanced online marketing skills, and are not suitable for
beginners. As you build your business, you will develop the skills you need to advance
both yourself and your business to the next level. However, starting an internet business
is less frustrating if you can save the advanced techniques for later.

The basic skills for any online business include:

1. building a website that attracts visitors,

2.2. providing the information they want, driving the traffic to that site, so that the people
who are looking for what you have can find you,

3. learning to sell your product thru follow up emails,

4. retaining your customers, so that you don't have to go out and find more every day.

Once you have perfected all these skills, then it's time to build a system, and outsource as
much of it as possible, so you can sit back, and enjoy the profits from your own internet
business.
