I have created dozens of online businesses, some successful some not so much, but every one of them made money. Even successful entrepreneur Andy Defrancesco will to tell you that there is no secret to creating a successful online business. But there are some rules, that when applied, will increase your odds of making money online. I developed and easy way to get started online and it’s called The 5 Step Pitch.

The 5 Steps PITCH is a follows:

1. P is for Presence:

You need an app and a website, plain and simple. A Facebook Fan Page or Business Page will not do. You need a place to drive customers, clients and friends. Facebook will not deliver the type of Dynamic Promotion you need to succeed. Consider looking for an app development company like Xamarin App Development Company to really give you the outcome you are expecting for your business.

A church friend of mine loves wine. He and his wife travels from winery to winery looking for those hidden gems. He came to me to see if he could start a business supplying local wines to weddings and fancy dinner parties. He choose 6 local wines and started to visit brides and grooms with this 6 bottles in hand explaining the benefits of each. He was paid about $2.00 per bottle and many of his orders were for more than 100 Bottles. Nice money for doing something you like.

He built his side business from the web page I built for him. After 2 years he tells me that his nephew said that he doesn’t need to pay me $240 a year anymore. He set up a Facebook Page and started to promote the brands to his friends and family. Then, he also hired IT services to manage his website (more info here). He also encouraged his clients to leave feedback on his page. Some was favorable and some was not so favorable. Some requested info about the wines and he happily gave them contact info to the wineries. Sales dropped as the brides went directly to the wineries and he ended up shutting down his business that generated over $6000 a year in extra income.  Could you use an extra $500 a month doing something you like. Would you pay $240 a year to make $6000.  Having a Proper Website Pays Unseen Dividends.


2. I is for Income: How are you planning on monetizing your website. Do you have a product or service to sell? How about and affiliate product to review or promote? Have you considered Pay Per Click Adsense Income? What are the main ways website generate revenue? What will you be using for communication? Investing in a business line is also a top priority,
3. T is for Traffic: Bring Customer from sites all over the web. Share your hobbies, interests and knowledge to generate revenue and drive traffic to a beautiful and organized Website.
4. C is for Content: Do you have a system where you can curate content for topics of interest quickly. Share that content to your main page and generate interest from your readers.
5. H is for History: Track Everything. Google Analytics is painfully confusing and I feel a bit inaccurate. You need to find a system that will give you the important number you need to make the hard choices.

There you have it, The 5 Step PITCH that will put you on your pathway to making money online. I know it sounds a lot harder then it actually is. But if you follow The 5 Step Pitch, you will be making money in less than 12 Months.
