Your Online Business – Don’t Know Where to Start?

So you want to start an online business, but don’t know where to start?

There’s no reason for me to re-invent the wheel here.  I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend one book – The Silent Sales Machine by Jim Cockrum.

Jim lost his “real job” back in 2002 when his wife was 8 months pregnant. He had been selling items on Ebay in his spare time and in confidence told his friend (also his boss) that he was having difficulty staying motivated in his job and was thinking about trying to go full time with his Ebay business in a few months. His friend then told the company Vice President and in 30 seconds they decided to let Jim go. What was horrible news to him and his wife at the time, became one of the best things that ever happened to him.

Since then, Jim has built a thriving internet business with over 35 different streams of income while teaching thousands of others how to get started in their own business. In addition, he was named the #1 most trusted Internet Marketing Expert by and it’s 40,000+ voting members. That’s quite an honor!

His book, The Silent Sales Machine, is a great place to start for anyone that wants their own online business no matter what your business model.  Jim goes into detail about some very foundational ideas that should be a part of any online business like email marketing and creating quality content.

Once you have started your business another great resource also by Jim is his brand new book Free Marketing: 101 Low and No-Cost Ways to Grow Your Business, Online and Off

Everyone thinks that traffic is the key to having a successful online business. Although traffic is important, Jim challenges his readers in this book to first find your audience. It’s filled with so many great ideas that one of the testimonials on the back cover says “my head is spinning with the ideas it has generated.” And that was from another very successful internet marketer.

You can order this book for only $14.71 from

In any endeavor it’s good to learn from someone that has “been there and done that.” I highly recommend Jim as someone to look up to in your pursuit of starting and building your own online business.
