To create your successful online income-creating business, you need to set up a system that will help you create and sell your own products in the long run. To begin, as you build your business with your online products to sell, you will search for established affiliate products to plug into your advertising and distribution system. When you have created your own products, you will slowly replace the affiliate items with your very own.

How can you achieve that? These are listed in the following steps:

1. Self evaluation. What are you looking for in life? Will internet business meet these criteria? You need to examine and evaluate these to ensure that this is really something you are looking for.

2. Perseverance. Then will you see success. There are highs and lows in all that we do, so there is no point in spending your time and money on something that you will call it quit the moment things get rough. This happens, so you must persevere or you might as well not get started.

3. Your interest and the market. Decide what you enjoy and would like to market and provide, that also has a reasonable market. For instance, if you like gardening, are there enough people out there online who share the same hobby as you, that you can meet some of their needs and generate profit at the same time?

4. Learn where you niche market congregates. How do they use the internet? How do they relate to others online, is it through forums, blogs, etc.

5. Know the needs of your chosen market. What do they need? What kind of questions do they ask that you might be able to answer?

6. Communicate with your chosen market. You must discover the needs and then learn how to meet those needs. Research and find out how you can become an expert in your chosen market.

7. Find out what is available on the web that already meet some of the needs. Obviously, the next step is to then find out what are the products your market is asking about that are not available yet. This is where you can begin to think about creating.

8. However, do not ignore those products that are already available on the web. You can also earn some income if there is affiliate programs associated with them. At the same time, you can develop your own product.

9. Build your own web site. You cannot maintain an online long term business by relying on someone else’s web site, because it is really their business, they are just paying you to promote it. Create a squeeze page on your web site so you can begin to enroll visitors to your web site in an email campaign. It is important to use email to keep in touch with the people you meet online, who might have an interest in either your new product or one of the affiliate products. You should also create a recommendations page which will have links to your affiliate products.

10. Get an auto responder. Next, write a series of articles relating to your chosen market. At the end of each email article, place a link back to the recommendations page of your web site.

11. Start spending more time online with your chosen market. Join every forum you can where people in your market get together. This is the place to find out what they are looking for, and what their questions are.

12. Find out the answers to the questions people asked in the forums. Provide your answers and in no time, people will start to look upon you as an expert!

13. Consolidate your answers to all the questions that people in forums have been asking, in an information product or FAQ (frequently Asked Questions) page.

14. What else do you need but a sales page that specifically markets your new product!

15. Create a series of emails that will introduce people to your new product.

16. Find joint venture partners that will help you distribute your new product.

17. Start advertising in ezines, and other marketers’ email lists.

18. Now, you can sit back and start collecting the profits.

19. You will repeat the process from step (1) and create another product. Meanwhile, continue to promote your product, as well as some related affiliate products, to your mailing list. Maintain and keep your relationship growing with those on your mailing list.
