Welcome to the IM4U website. So, you want to start an online business do you? Anyone can start an online business - but not everyone can start a SUCCESSFUL online business.
This website is for people who either are starting from the very beginning or are struggling to get going having already progressed so far that they realise they just need a bit of a push to get them going. Whilst there are numerous types of business on the internet, the types of questions asked on how to get started are fairly common, and typically are along the lines of:
- How do you start an online business from scratch?
- How do you decide on a niche market to sell/provide a service to?
- How do you generate sales?
- How do you build a Facebook page?
- What is a Facebook page?
- How do I find a niche market?
Questions, questions.... Here at IM4U, we'll be breaking down the doors and the barriers that temporarily stop you from progressing.
You know there's a whole new world out there waiting for you to benefit from - you just want someone to point you in the right direction and get you started. Well, you're in the right place, and here's why: we're going through the same scenario ourselves, only we are probably a few steps down the line from where you are at the moment.
So, if you hit a hurdle on your online business journey, then there's always someone, somewhere who has had the same or similar issue to overcome. You're not in this alone, that's why we've called this business Online Marketing For Us.
"Us" being the operative word - we're all in this together. We've designed the website to be as user-friendly as possible.
We'd like you to tell us what burning issues you'd like to see answered on the following pages, so we can play some small or big part in getting your online business up and running successfully.
Now, you've probably heard or seen how other people have improved their lifestyles by having a business on the internet, and for whatever reason you've probably said to yourself something along the lines of: "I can do that!", or "I wish I knew how to do that!" You may have already got started getting to grips with this internet lark and got bogged down in all the conflicting information bombarding your mind, or become disillusioned with how long the simplest of tasks seems to take.
And if you've a family to look after whilst holding down a full-time (and stressful) job, then time is always going to be an issue. Do not fear - this is all part of the learning process, or the journey, if you like.
Well, you'd be surprised to learn that if you've come this far on your online journey, even if you're in what we call the research or due diligence phase, you're ahead of the game. That's because most people start reading reports and articles on the internet after they've typed into the Google search bar something like: "How to start an online business".
Then, having read those various articles for, say, 15 minutes or so, you'll wonder how anyone actually gets a business idea off the ground. That is why it is important for you to download the FREE report "You Must Treat These Recommendations With A Pinch Of Salt" above, where we set out the real stuff you need to learn - and it is a lot easier setting up a business than you're led to believe.
There appears to be so much stuff that you have to absorb and deal with before you even try to make your first sale, most people give up at this stage. And that's a shame, because most of the so-called advice that's written by so-called experts is irrelevant, out-of-date and, sometimes, just downright crap.
Those reports by the so-called "experts" only go to serve their own narrow-minded and greedy purpose. Now that's the first major hurdle out of the way.
You now know you can move on to the next stage, so we'll now take this opportunity to explain what this web-site contains.
- The About Us Page is a brief introduction to the team;
- The Blog Page is where we share with you our own experiences as we build our online business, sharing useful tips on issues that will both enhance your own journey, whilst also steering you away from the pitfalls. We also invite you to share your own experiences so that other members of the IM4U community can learn from;
- The Resources Page provides information and reviews of the most commonly used and recommended tools i.e. software, that will enable you to get your online business up and running and growing; and
- The Contact Us Page shows where you can connect with the IM4U community on Facebook and soon-to-be added other social media platforms (don't worry what this last bit means - you'll learn about it all in good time).
Now, our apologies for not mentioning this before, but there are certain terms of phrase, that will, quite frankly, seem like gobbledygook to most people. Don't worry, because this is all part of learning a whole new set of skills for you.
That just about covers everything for now. Feel free to browse the rest of the site. New information, blog posts and articles will be added on a regular basis.
In the meantime, we wish you all the best with your online business endeavours. And don't forget - if there's any particular aspect of starting an on-line business you want to see covered in our posts, please let us know, and we'll be happy to post an article as soon as possible.
