I Have No Experience. Is Starting An Internet Business Easy? Is starting an internet business easy? That depends on many factors. Can you start your own internet business with no previous experience? Now that is another question entirely. Internet business ventures are being started up every single day by ordinary people just like you. People from all kinds of different walks of life are doing their research, or due diligence, on how they might be able to start generating alternative income streams. The amount of experience that they have varies widely, both in terms of previous business experience and any experience they may or may not have in using the internet. Your desire to want to replace the income from your current employment or offline business has obviously led you to start investigating this in more detail. So what skills or experience do you need in order to qualify yourself as having the ability to be able to build a long-term income from the internet? Basic computer skills are something that the majority of people have these days. If you can browse the internet, log in to an email account and send mail, type something on Microsoft Word and save it to your hard drive, then you already have a basic foundation from which you can get started. If you have already been doing some research, you may well have already realised that there is a huge amount of information on the internet about starting an internet business. Depending on how much time you have devoted to this, you may have also noticed the amount of differences in the advice that you have come across. There is a simple reason for this. At the risk of upsetting a few people (maybe more than a few, actually), a lot of information on how to start your own home internet business is being given out by people who don’t know what they are really talking about! It’s not really their fault though. They have most likely joined an online business opportunity in the hope of making money and the only training that they have received is “Promote the business opportunity and get other people to join.” The 2 most important factors in starting an internet business and being successful at it, are having a burning desire to succeed and finding someone who you can learn from who has a proven track record of making money online and teaching others to do the same (other than simply trying to promote a business opportunity). So, depending on the quality of your own research before you invest, starting an internet business can be as easy or difficult as you make it. Having no previous experience in either business or the internet will not stop you from succeeding. However, neglecting to find someone with a proven track record and working with them to learn the skills of succeeding with a home internet business, most probably will.
