Want to start an online business but have no cash? I often see in forums internet marketers who have a deep desire to make the big bucks and be successful like Joe Vitale, Terry Dean and the other top names in the web marketing business.

But being new to the game, many don’t know how to start an online business, or have studied but just don’t have the cash they feel is need to build one.

To run any business online you of course will cost a little money for web hosting and a domain name. But hosting can be found free with ads and domain names cost around $5. I will show you some things here to help you build your own product and market it for $0.

You will want to switch to paid hosting, which is usually about $20 a month (to get rid of the ads) to be more professional to your customers as soon as you start making some advertising money you can invest some back into your business.

One of the most important things you should do in your business plan first, is write out a list of the skills you have. You may have skills you have picked up through the years without even realizing what they are. Maybe you have learned more than one language.

You may have detail knowledge about a subject you learned at work. Even your hobbies such as golfing.

Then go down your list of skills or knowledge and look for ones that you know that would be in demand for others to learn. For example, you love playing golf so much you try to get to the course every day possible.

You could easily turn this into an ebook or course you could sell on the internet teaching others tips you have learned. The best part is you already own this knowledge, you do not have to pay a cent to get it.

Take for instance how I came about writing my latest ebook #1 on Google in 2 Days.

I have been marketing online for 5 years so I feel I have a lot of expertise in this area. I ran an experiment with an article that beat out all competition quickly on Google. So, I wrote an ebook showing people step-by-step how I did it to give away free to help build my newsletter list.

The best part is it cost me nada, except for using my Adobe and Snag-it programs. You can find programs that do about the same for free with a few searches on the web. If not, maybe a friend has the programs you could use to create your product.

Even if you have very little money to start an online business, one of your first options could be to raise some money using the existing knowledge you have in a particular field. You can teach things learned at work, or through your hobbies, or anywhere you can think of. You have probably picked up many tips not found in textbooks.

Share them and profit by them.
