Purchase a domain name and web hosting

I personally am using Wealthy Affiliate for my web hosting and training, as it cost me nothing to get started. I have found this to be the easiest platform for me to work with, and amazing help and support, but there are many other options to choose from that may work for you instead.

 Start building your website
This is not as hard as it has been in the past. WordPress is my favorite as it is so easy to set up and use and Google likes it… what a bonus, especially if you are planning on your website being ranked.
Begin writing content and articles about your topic
Content is King! I don’t know how many times I have heard this, but it so true and constant reminders of this help keep me on track. Keep it informative, clear and on topic. Writing content need not be as hard as you think, especially if it is something that you are passionate about. You just need to let it flow naturally.
Make sure you monetize your website before you start promoting it.
You could promote an affiliate product related to your site’s topic, or you could use Google Adsense. Your goal is to get your site to make the most money possible, so if you have lots of ways to make money on your site, then you will most likely make lots of money.
Start promoting and advertising your website now that it has great content and money-making tools. Create social network sites online with your niche. Write keyword rich articles about your site and link them to them. Post flyers and create business cards. In simple words, just get your site out there and talk about it when out and about.
Watch the money start rolling in. Just be patient, there is no time frame, depending on the promoting and keywords you have used. It is important that you keep promoting your site and keep adding articles, to keep your readers interested enough to come back and buy.

To Summarize How to Earn an Online income.
