Hi all. Hope everyone is well.
So the question is.. do you occasionally find yourself online and wonder – what am I actually getting out of this?
Are you – like many, jumping around social media sites trying to find the next hilarious video you can share with friends or posting pictures of last nights takeaway pizza?
When I first started in the self-employed world one of the first things I looked at was making my own website.
At the time I had seen advertisements for web building websites but I still thought it would be a tricky and time-consuming process.
What I soon learnt was that these days the whole process from start to finish is surprisingly straightforward and for me, I found it quite addictive and enjoyable working on my site.
Breaking Down The Jargon
As my motivation is to help people at the very early stages of their “working from home” journey I will attempt to cover a few areas that might help you to understand the process of building your own online business.
What Is Hosting?
Hosting is simply where your website will live. there are many hosting sites that offer you their space to store your website ready for the online world to benefit from.
What Is A Domain?
A domain is your brand, your business, your ideas and work. My current domain is www.educatedaction.com, however, I intend to have many more over time when I continue to build my online businesses.
When you eventually get to the part of your journey in choosing your domain there are many great sites which will sell you a full domain (website address), which are surprisingly affordable, straightforward to purchase, and use.
A blog or blogging is simply a journal of your own content. it quite literally can be about anything you want and is a fundamental part of a good website. Engaging your customer (like I’m trying to do now) and creating content around your brand is key to growing your brand and online business.
Have you also come across the term vlogging? this is essentially blogging but on video. If you haven’t already, check out my 1st ever vlog on my home page and this will give you an idea of what goes down in the vlogging world.
Let’s Just Stop There.
Even after writing those few paragraphs I can see straight away how off-putting starting a website, or any online venture can be to a person who has just learnt to use their Facebook account and set up an email address.
Now I would like you to imagine an online community (website) which has everything you need to get started on building your website with unlimited support and some pretty impressive tools.
I will address the elephant in the room, “YES” I am selling something to you. Isn’t that why we are all on this journey? to make money in the online world. May as well be honest.
I have scoured the internet for years looking for that perfect money making opportunity. In the early days, it was looking for a get rich quick scheme which didn’t exist and once I soon realised that, my mind was opened to the realistic options the online world has to offer.
As I’ve said before and will be sure to say again. becoming successful takes work and perseverance, however, that doesn’t mean there isn’t shortcuts and ways to accelerate your success.
Can you imagine being a member of a community which offers the following all in one place?
- Website Hosting (A safe home for your website and blogs)
- Website builder (all the tools you need to create your website from scratch)
- A community full of people on the same online journey (less drama than Facebook and all the support needed for success)
- More than 10 online courses educating you on how to make money online.
- Video tutorials
- Webinars (live online training events)
- Live chat (need some motivation or get stuck? drop in for a chat with members of the community)

hope we can talk soon.
