I'm bringing a concept from the US to Nepal. FrugalTravelsNepal 1 7 daysFrugalTravelsNepal (97): I escaped western life 9 years ago and have lived in Nepal for the past 8 years. I ended up getting a 14 room guest house about 5 years ago, just one year before the disastrous earthquakes of 2014. The guesthouse business was so good everyone who had to rebuild their home decided to make a guesthouse. So, rather than compete with the local people I've decided to do something different. I'm taking the furniture from our rooms and renting them...

Where Do I Invest 1st in Online Business? morningstar 16 2 yearsSusanDay (2023): @morningstar I am in a similar position as you. I have invested in hiring someone to do small tasks but it hasn't always worked out. @Belew is right, if you generate great content it will be online forever. It will bring visitors to your site, then you design your sales funnel. At the moment, I am re-designing a site which has over 800 blog posts. The content is already there attracting new visitors, now I have to take the next step and...

What to post on LinkedIn teddy 10 2 yearsteddy (37): I was told the same thing by my lecturers, that blogging is probably the most important for a student and I read @Rev's advice in the forum - that for online presence first a need blog and then building followers.

Should I jump in? stevew407 4 2 yearsstevew407 (4): Do not recall ever seeing the email alerts or replies. Just came back on something else. So here is a quickie to just get started.

Newbie Question #2: Day 1 content quantity weaverjs 8 3 yearsweaverjs (16): @jaylperry Thank you, I have read other sites for more info on this same topic and your response is spot on.

Starting Online After Early Retirement cpw1959 5 3 yearsRev (5413): @cpw1959 Yes. Seeds. It's always best to start with something you know and build from there. It doesn't mean you will end up doing that, but it is a good place to start. Whatever you do, if you are going to build something online, you want a solid foundation and you want it as early as possible. - domain name. It is better to choose wrong than not to choose at all. - hosting. You want good hosting that lets YOU build YOUR business YOUR...

How Do You Decide Who You Can Coach jycmba 4 3 yearsBelew (11716): @jycmba Money speaks to commitment also. I once asked a student to write me a check for $1000. I told her I would give her a reasonable assignment and instructions on how to complete it. If she did what I told her I'd give her the money back She did and I did. Is the mentee willing to have skin in the came, demonstrate commitment in a tangible way? This is important. How do you decide?
Kirsten - The Realms Publishing Ktucker 4 4 yearsKtucker (7): @bdaoust Strangely enough, many clients that I have had want SEO and keyword rich content. They have a huge misunderstanding of what Google SE and other SE are now looking at when ranking web sites, webpages and businesses. Furthermore the problem with page ranking, traffic and therefore conversions, was also directly linked to how optimized the webpage is itself at the html level, if it is mobile ready, backlinks, Social Media engagement, AND...
Content Marketer's Chinese Niche - Students Belew 3 4 yearsBelew (11716): @Rev I know the issues they face. I taught EL in Asia, mostly Japan, buy not exclusively. My last trip to Shanghai.... I taught content marketing... but my students were low level English speakers.

I have had experience teaching business in English to students who were using English as a second language. They...
If You Recommended One Business Book.. jycmba 24 4 yearsjycmba (2653): @Belew - "When the student is ready, the teacher appears.." Sometimes it's not just our content or the audience, the stars may not have aligned yet, and they're simply not ready for it - and sometimes may never be for whatever reason.. For the longest time I had no interest in the Mad Men series but lately I wanted to peer into the mindset of that era. That, of course, inspired this LinkedIn post which highlights what's different...

getting paid from blog qualify as a busines? labellecleo 7 4 yearsrcayeras (439): Regarding local rules, check out the city business license as well. Filing for DBA without a business license is not recommended - the related city will find out and demand the license fee plus many penalties. And resale permits (free permit, always file, whether or not you sold anything taxable) , should selling products become part of your business.
