The basic goal is to build relationships by connecting with like-minded individuals, sharing and engaging with
2. Get Visible on Video
Another major social media giant is youtube with billions of users and the second most searched site online, this is a platform that you will want to get visible on. Furthermore, time and time again, it's been proven that video creates a greater connection between you and your viewers and therefore better engagement and results.

3. Build Online Business by Tapping Into Free Training
Running an online business requires knowledge and skill. You can find a great deal of free information on the Internet that can help you learn, yet it can be overwhelming and confusing. What I recommend is finding one mentor and sticking with them. When I started building my online business, I signed up for cheap and value packed training I saw online that you can now get free and extremely grateful to my mentors.
4. Start Blogging!
In today's world, people aren't looking to be sold to, they are looking for answers. So step up to the plate, and create content that provides answers, insights, and value in the market you serve. This will help to increase your authority and attract those clients that would benefit from your services or products. I'll be doing a series shortly on smart blogging for business so be sure to register for my blog updates. In the meantime, check out a past blog I did on an integrated platform I use to host my WordPress blog sites and much more.
5. Earn commissions from other people's products.
A simple way to add an additional income stream to your online business is becoming an affiliate for products or services complementary to what you offer. This just means that you refer your customers and or visitors through ads, content and or email offers to these products and are paid a commission for every purchase that they make. You avoid holding inventory, there is no product to develop and maintain and you often can start for free. For example, becoming an affiliate for Amazon.
So those are your five free things, you can do right now to build your online business.
