How To Start Your Own Online Business


You should have your wordpress website now all set up and ready for business, if you do not get your butt to wordpress and do this before even considering what niche you wish to promote on your website. For those who have their website all set up for business and have decided on your niche this article is for YOU.




I know when I first started my own health business , I was very confused of all the awesome products available online to promote. I drove myself crazy thinking what is the best product to promote on my new website which is in great demand. I have experienced the best plan for choosing products are products which you yourself and  the people you know would purchase or have an interest in. For any niche no matter what it might be, there are more then enough other people interested in it just like you. When I consider a new product to promote, the first thing I consider is this something I would be interested in purchasing myself.

Services to promote I  use the same plan as for products, if the service your considering on purchasing is something you would possibly purchase yourself there are others also more likely who will be interested in this service as well. I chose products over services for my health business, my health business is helping others deal with their anxiety without medication. So I promote products I use or have used in the past, products I believe will benefit the people reading my articles  and experimenting with the information and products to learn to deal better with their own anxiety.

Physical Versus Digital Products


Physical products are products which the customer will receive through shipping from your affiliate program, digital products are products the customer will receive immediately through a download through their computer. Physical products has a much smaller commission on sales then digital products, I feel its really just what you prefer which is the best for you to choose. You can even promote both types of products if you desire to experiment, I choose physical products myself just because with my niche I feel the physical products are more of a benefit to my readers then the digital products I have found online.


Digital Services


Digital services of course are very popular today since the internet is in almost every home in the USA, digital services are instant delivery to the customer and often these could possibly impulse purchases rather then thought out purchases such as physical products might be.

Final Thoughts


Once you have your website set up for business and have chosen your niche, the next step is deciding if you prefer products or services or both. Digital or physical products or both, products or services or both. Most business’s usually specialize in promoting either products or services depending on their niche, I suggest you check out the available affiliate programs available online. There is no right or wrong decision in this, just go with your instincts and what is your personal preference. Next article I will share some ways to find affiliate programs to promote, until then if you wish to research on your own that will be fine.

    As an affiliate marketer, I like to review different kind of products and recommend the good ones for the other people. My “service” is to provide valuable information and the other companies give them the products.

    I am also planning to make my own products in the future, starting from the ebook. Selling other people’s products is easier but there can be a greater potential when making own products.

      Thank you Roope

      You have quite a lot planned for your affiliate business, sounds like you have much experience as well. Happy to hear from you today, thank you for the ideas to share with others through my website as well.

    I think promoting a product or service on your website that you believe in and would actually use is necessary in order to have a successful online affiliate business. I’ve seen too many websites that promote products that are high dollar amount but really don’t have that great of reviews and don’t receive any sales from them. Digital services are my favorite because if someone found your site online then they are more than likely going to be comfortable purchasing another product that is available online as well.

    • admin says:

      Thank You Nate

      I am thankful for your comment, I hope your comment encourages others to give digital products a try too. Maybe I will even give them a try in the future, you have interested me to check them out.


  • Eric says:

    As a fellow affiliate marketing business man, if you will, I enjoy how your site provides actual ‘tips and trick’ and real help on getting your site off the ground and the differences with pros and cons of physical vs digital products.
    One thing I would just like to ask is how did you get the share to Facebook and Twitter options on your site?
    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    • admin says:

      Thank You Eric

      I appreciate you sharing on my website today, I do hope what I share on my website helps others take short cuts to success with their business.

      I added the social sharing wordpress plugin to my website, if you have a wordpress website all you have to do is go to your dashboard and add plugins, type in social sharing plugins and you will be taken to the social sharing plugins available for your wordpress website. I would not use any other free website other then wordpress, they have so many useful plugins to make your website so much more technical.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a while now, and I really like it. It seems that you’re writing with passion and really want to help people!

    As a blogger myself, I can tell that you have to believe in what you write. You should never lie to your readers as well. It’s also important to choose an affiliate marketing program that suits your needs.

    • admin says:

      Thank You Julius

      I truly do appreciate you reading my articles, your are very right with your feelings I write from my passions and past experiences. I wish to steer people in the right direction with their online business, I struggled for years in the past and wish to help others avoid this experience.

      Shame so many scams online just to steal our money,


  • Wing says:

    I like the concept of being able to choose services or products. That definitely broadens your options as far as what you can offer to your audience. The same goes for digital and physical products as well. Although most people I’ve spoke to prefer digital, physical products work best for me personally.

    Even if it’s a book, there’s nothing like holding an actual book in your hands and reading it instead of on a screen.

    Great review!

    • admin says:

      Thank You Wing

      I appreciate your comment, I prefer physical products myself as well. Even as the consumer, I prefer to purchase physical products over digital.


  • Vinnie Prasad says:

    I really do think in the online world as an affiliate marketer you can do both. Sell digital products and physical. Whether it be through amazon or other affiliate programs. Jeff, out of curiosity have you ever thought about creating your own e-books and selling them to us. And if you did how would you go about this?

    • admin says:

      Thank You Viinnie Prasad,

      I appreciate your comment and I agree it is possible to promote both types of products but most people prefer to start their business with one or the other.

      I never thought about writing my own e-book, something I would have to consider for the future and research on.
