Top 10 Online Businesses
Work from Home Online Business
Some of the top 10 online businesses are people who have created their own online home business with an online business website. Have you ever thought about working for yourself? Now Sitesell makes it really feasible to work from home using the internet.
When I first used the internet I hated it. Fifteen years on, Sitesell has meant I can't imagine how I ever lived without it. It's hard to believe now but I found it very confusing.
More recently I was a contract programmer/analyst working for a company doing something I barely understood and cared about even less. Then the contract ended and I thought, "Okay what now?"
I love being at home and doing stuff around the house, I've always wanted to work from home. The kitchen needed to be refurbished so I spent several months stripping out the old cabinets, build IKEA cabinets and installing them, along with the associated plumbing and electrical work.
Just as an aside I'd like to mention that IKEA were great. We had a problem with the granite counter top. After it was made and installed we realized the granite was not the colour we had chosen. After considerable discussion IKEA stepped up to the plate and refunded half the cost of the granite (almost $2,000) and took up the cudgels on our behalf with the sub-contractor who had installed the counter.
Then the bee season was upon us and I started getting calls from people who wanted swarms removed. I put up a website with the domain name SanDiegoBees.com and used Google Adwords to drive traffic to it. It never was one of the top 10 online businesses, but I was inundated with calls and kept busy the whole summer.
When the main swarm season came to an end I thought, "Phew! Breathing space." My first task was to smarten up my website ready for next year in the hope I could get more 'organic' traffic to save money on Google Adwords and push my site nearer to those top 10 online businesses.
I don't know now exactly how I came across Sitesell and SBI . I'm surprised I'd never heard of it before. I'm so glad I found it.
I try to describe Sitesell to people. It's web hosting, no it's more than that. It's a software package to help you create pages which will get a good search engine ranking, no, more than that. There's a forum where people give and receive advice, information and encouragement. Yes. It's an affiliate, yes that too. It's a way of making the site make money, SBI calls it the monetizing process.
Well it's all those things, but it's a whole concept which takes a sideways step and makes building a successful, profitable website possible, feasible and entirely do-able. Yours may never be in the top 10 online businesses, maybe the top 100?
The idea is really so simple, but brilliant! It's no 'get rich quick' idea. It's very very real. Don't take my word for it, take the tour. You've seen the result, and if you keep coming back you'll see more and more.
I'm about to start work on my next site, not about bees this time. I have to hurry, although it's December, I'm still getting bee calls and I know it'll only be another two months before the next bee season begins to start buzzing into the picture.
My purpose has changed! I'm working towards making my Sitesell websites produce enough income so I can change beekeeping back to being a hobby. I want a job which I can do entirely from home, wherever that may be. No more 9 to 5 for me, and I'm loving it..
