Step 1. Find your interest
First you need a business idea, you must find your niche, which will be the basis of your business. Choose something you like to do, your hobby, a passion, something that you would do without that you get paid for it. Let’s say you like sport, football for example, following it for quite time, you have a lots of information about various world championships, clubs, players etc. Why not make this theme around which you can build your business? You can earn money online from absolutely every single niche because there are billions of people out there searching every day. Wondering how to start online business? Lets go on next step.
Step 2. Create your own website or blog
Your next step is going to be to build your website. It can be done in just a few minutes. If it looks like very complicated thing right now and maybe you already want to give up at this step – please don’t. It’s very simple, believe me. And it will not cost you anything because todays there are FREE opportunities for making a websites/blogs.

Your online business should not feel like a day job. Earning money online should be fun, and it is fun.
Step 3. Attract visitors to your web site – web traffic
Now you have your own website and you need to tell the world that you exist on the internet. Potential visitors and readers must find out about you and your site which means – you need to advertise, to promote. Ask yourself, when you want to know information about something, what do you do? You type that term in Google search engine, and Google will expel all information which existing on the internet about that subject. When your potential visitors trying to find what Google says about football information on the internet, it would be very nice if the name of your web site will appeared, right? For that, you need to put some extra effort, you need to write quality posts, edit your pages according to SEO rules, perhaps even to invest a little money to create traffic for your site (Facebook Ads, Google AdWords etc.) or invest in internet marketing services like Growtraffic.com which will send visitors to your site according to your wishes. Anyway, you will not achieve all of that overnight and you don’t need to bother with this in the beginning. Just write and enjoy.
Step 4. Earn commission
Last step and some would say the most important one – earning money. However, do not think that this is the most important step. Success is not all about money and it shouldn’t be your only motivation. Money and earnings will take care of itself if everything is done properly and what is the most important in this story is that you are doing what you love and enjoy in it. If you feel a passion about your blog, if you enjoyed it, and you will not be only focused on profit, then you have already succeed. Earnings will come with time as a result of that passion and this success. Your positive feelings about everything you have just launched will simply attract money. Now, you are probably wondering how will your website attract money? Simply, on your site you will advertise products and services from, for example, web store Amazon.com. Of course, as your blog is about sport, you will advertise some sports equipment or clothings, something that your visitors are interesting about. Here is one example of such an ad (click on the image below). All we need to buy something and sometimes, so why would not buy on your site? This may not be the Amazon store, it can be Ebay, AlliExpress etc. Earnings are realized on the basis of affiliate marketing program. Most of this big online stores have affiliate program incorporated in their system. Basically, affiliate marketing is the process of creating a website that reviews products or services via writing content. This content would have links to an online store (such as Amazon or Ebay) where readers would then purchase the products and you earn commissions.
Of course, you can sell also your own products if you have them, even better. What is important is to bring visitors to your site, if they will be interesting to your articles and content, they will stay on your pages and more likely will click on some of the Ads and buy something.
