Top 5 Strategic Requirements You Need to Make It Online

Starting an online busi​​​​ness could be a daunting task yet its your best ticket to Freedom.

There are various ways to make money online and different strategies to implement. In this post, you’ll uncover the right way to quickly hit the spot and stop struggling to make money.

One of the main reason most people fail to make it online is the lack of knowing how online business really works before jumping the ship. I can understand the urge to take the risk and get started immediately.

But you need to understand the basics of running an online business and how it fit into your life. And that’s the whole point.

Starting an online business is all about the freedom and that special feeling of helping the world the best you can and not because you’re been forced to.

When both feelings comes together, then your income will explode while you serve your tribe.

I will be sharing with you the proven tips that will help you get started the right way and explode to stardom in the next coming weeks.

1. Platform

This is what I consider to be the basis of success in your online business journey.

You need the platform that gives you the flexibility of being an entrepreneur yet offers simplicity at the same time.

This will enable you to have access to proven strategies that is generating six figures for industry leaders. Strategies you can apply without facing the hassle of technical know-how.

It’s important as most newbies struggle to go beyond the technical required activities or waste too much time and resource trying to solve each conundrum that comes their way, that they lose momentum and fail miserably.

But when you have a system that offers technical flexibility and schedule based plan to grow your online business in your choosen time-frame then you can be assured of success.

You also need to be aware that work needs to be done and by going that extra miles will yield you proportional success.

However, with a platform for your online business, you’ll be solving the #1 problem most beginners encounter online, thereby accelerating your own success.

Though there are  many platforms out there that look a good fit for your business, I recommend wealthy affiliate and done-for-you system.

What to look for

The platform you want to use in building your own success should contain step-by-step training on how to setup your online business and start earning as fast as possible.

This platform should also offer premium support in assisting you every step of the way. You should be able to reach out to them either by mail or phone.

2. Mentor

“Find a mentor who has skills in the area you want to develop. That sounds so simple, but it’s the key to a successful relationship” – Erin Lynn quoted

He is right on point and his thought applies perfectly to starting your online business. What better way to guarantee a successful business before even starting.

When you have someone, who is already successful, to turn to for setting up a successful online business then you’ve taken a leap that 95% of beginners won’t take or don’t know of it’s importance.

I will be the first to admit, hiring a mentor for your online business can be out of reach due to their high charges but their is a way around it.

Though by getting access to a platform, you already have 80% of what your mentor will teach you but according to Marry Bui-Phan.

“Sometimes people just need to be able to meet with somebody and talk about things. That person just need a sounding board”.

And that sounding board is important to your online business. Although, having a mentor goes way beyond “just having a sounding board”.

Here is how you can get a mentor for your online business with limited fund.

Platform plus Mentor

Done-for-you system is the best example of a platform that includes coaches (mentor) that will guide you every step of the way.

You get a personal coach at no additional cost and they’re willing to help you start a successful business.

And the best way part is that if you’re not making money then they don’t make money also. So you can be assured of extra motivated coaches ready to boost your income.

By getting access to a platform that have mentors/coaches ready for you to roll in, you’ll be cutting off the cost of hiring a traditional mentor and guaranteeing success at the same time.

Asking your referrer

Another way of cutting off the cost of hiring a mentor is to directly ask the person that refers you onto the platform.

Though this can be a little bit challenging as the person that refers you might not be well-experienced to actually coach you.

Nevertheless, you can bypass this by getting access to the system through someone who is already successful using it.

An example will be getting access to the WA platform through Enstine and asking him to coach you.

You can both agree to a schedule time to reach out and move your business forward.

3. Marketing

While setting up your online business is of utmost importance, you can only earn money when you get others to buy the product you’re promoting.

Getting traffic to your website is the fundamental requirement of your online business and getting it right will go along way to running a successful campaign.

There are basically two ways to getting traffic to your website:

  • Free method
  • Paid method

Both methods are great and you can decide whether to use one or both.

How to promote your business should be included in your platform of choice and it should be able to cover every major traffic generation methods out there.

The platform should also be able to provide up-to-date practical step-by-step guide so that you won’t run into any sort of trouble.

Most platform out there still make use of trainings that are not up-to-date. This can cause issue for beginners as they have to guess through the process.

Since 90% of the promotion methods you’ll be using are social media base, it only make sense to keep up with the changes of these sites.

Before we move on, let see which method is best for you.

Free method

There are various ways to generate traffic to your site without paying a dime for it. Most of which are effective for long term success.

However, you need to know that you’ll have to invest quality to make it work. This doesn’t mean it takes forever but  you’ve to be prepared to make it work.

In fact, you can indulge yourself, 2-3 hours daily to make it work.

Is this for you?

If you’ve limited cash to fund your promotion campaign then you can use some of the free methods you’re provided on the platform.

Even if you’ve little cash to play around with, you should use the free method to get your feet wet before jumping into paid method.

Paid method

Paid campaign can generate instant return and help you establish your presence on the internet.

You can generate thousands of website traffic at the click of your mouse but only if you do it right.

And that’s why having a platform and mentor can play a huge role in your development business-wise while the platform will help you setup a successful campaign.

Is this for you?

If you’ve enough cash you can throw into a paid campaign and you’ve a mentor to guide you through, then you should go for paid campaign.

While paid campaign will definitely save you time, I will recommend using at least 1-2 free methods to compliment your paid campaign.

Everything can be tracked and you can know what’s working for you so that you can cut off your expenses.

There is nothing to fear, go all in.

4. Community

online business group

Finding an online business partner and a community to help you every step of the way is important.

When you get access to a platform then you’ll be granted access to a community of like minded entrepreneur.

This will help you avoid distractions and focus on your business.

You’ll be able to ask questions and also get the most recent information to grow your business.

You can also get a business partner from the community provided so that you can have a person who you can discuss business with.

This is important as it will become a source of motivation for you and your business.

5. Set Goals for your online business

Every requirement I have covered so far in this post is to set you up for success by removing all major trials and error in your way.

They help simplify the process but you need to set a goal to achieve valuable returns.

It is important to set a reasonable goals for your online business to stay motivated and measure your effort and outcome.

You want to look into how the platform is going to set you up for success before drafting in your plan.


Making money online is a process and following the right way will ensure your long time success.

Starting your online business can be challenging but following the process I laid out in this post will extremely reduce the challenges.

  1. Excellent tips, I loved each one of them Aderemi. Although I’ve been into online marketing for over a decade now and I still feel it takes a lot of hustle, consistent efforts and strategic plan to make money from a blog.

    The only thing you need to remember to build a profitable online business is how you’re going to help your target audience and how you’re going to distinguish yourself from your competition.

    It’s also important to find a mentor as you said as it’s the fastest way to try new things, fail and still succeed. Just make sure to find the right mentor who can lead you from front and forces you to think and achieve big.

    Although I’ve never took any assistance from other mentors but I really admire people like Ramit Sethi, Grant Cardone etc as they inspire me to think big and focus on results instead of finding excuses. That’s what separates successful people from the rest.

    SEO is another important thing you need to consider if you want to build a money making blog as search engines send you the most qualified visitors who are eager to buy stuff from you. So either learn it by yourself or hire someone to take care of your website’s SEO to jumpstart your results.

    Thanks for the great tips Aderemi, keep up the great work!

  2. Hey
    your post is really attractive and informative. I didn’t think so that i can make money online but after reading this post i think i can. I never thought such a kind of strategies. Thanks for sharing such an effective post.

  3. Hey Aderemi,

    I think a goal and a clear roadmap is required for any online business. I was reading a post about a niche website.
    The author explained it really well. He started by learning about the niche which didn’t have much competition.
    Later on, he did keyword research and found over 100+ low competition keywords.
    Later he developed a strategy to write the post around those long tail keywords.

    It is really important to have a clear goal in our mind. People with goals tend to get successful.

    Thanks for the amazing post.

    Keep up the good work

  4. Yes agree with you ,mentor is very necessary in blogging.I am also working on my own online business of clothing ,from last six 6 month I didn’t get much response ,so that I am looking for different technique to make it successful

    • Hi Jamie,

      Mentor is definitely important in going forward and running a successful blog. Wish you become successful and make it to the top.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  5. YOu are right enstine Muki, but SEO is no more a free way to get traffic and earn good amount of money….

    SEO was pretty simple and straight forward a few years back but as more and more people have been getting in online business. it has created an extra ordinary competition in online market. Thus making it hard to get top rankings

  6. Hi Aderemi & Enstine,

    It is obvious that a paid method will help you achieve success faster than a free method, because paid methods are more targeted. However, if used correctly, free methods work incredibly well. In terms of platform, being able to choose the right marketing platform is a game changer for any marketer. I like that your article is centered around WA university because it has every resources that will help you succeed online. I have been there,and even though I left over 3 years ago, I definitely will be back soon enough.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Moss,

    you so much!!!

  9. Hi Enstine,
    Interesting post. I’d never thought of these strategies as free vs. paid, etc.
    The post is timely for me. I am considering writing a post about how marketers can meet SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely.

  10. Hey Aderemi,

    This article is definitely amazing.As for finding platforms to join, I agree that Wealthy Affiliate University is the best.Mentors can help guide you along the way and give you honest criticism to help you become even better.
    You really do need to have mentors when you get started with your business and really for life!
    I really love the all point you’ve touched here. Thanks Alot

    • Hi Tankline,

      Glad you like this article.

      Wealthy Affiliate is a great platform and definitely the best in the industry. You need to set a goal and a plan before hiring a mentor.

      Though your mentor will help you with your goals, it is vital you set one that’s realistic.

      Thanks for stopping by, really appreciate your comment.

  11. Hi Aderemi,

    When going online, take every step with utmost care. It is necessary to choose a secure platform to launch your online business. Focus, strategies and investment pays in long run.

    Glad you shared these.

    • Hi Gaurav,

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping a comment.

      Of course choosing a secure platform is necessary and by following the steps I laid down above, you will be able to choose a secure and reliable platform.

      Thanks again.

  12. Hi Aderemi.

    I like your last point that you need to have goals in place because, if you don’t, how will you know when you’ve reached them? And just working for “progress” sake leads nowhere.

    You agree?

    As for finding platforms to join, I agree that Wealthy Affiliate University is the best. They have updated, newbie-friendly training, videos and tutorials; And Enstine is right to promote them.

    • Hi Nikola,

      Totally agree with you bro.

      We all need a goal in place to be able to measure our success, work-rate and expectation. Those who are successful expected it and doesn’t happen to them by accident.

      Creating a goal is the only way to expect and prepare for success.

      WA Platform is indeed the best in the industry.

      Thanks for stopping by, really glad with your contribution.

  13. Hello Dare,

    Enstine thanks for featuring Aderemi Dare to this community.

    I will say the points you highlighted in your post are exactly requirements to consider before you can Make Money Online.

    You mentioned community in your requirement, if you noticed above i also mentioned “to this community” which i refer to as Enstine’s Community to MENTORING and guide you with information’s required to start online business and MAKE MONEY ONLINE easily.

    Without Mentor to guide you in starting your online business journey you may face some ups and down, but having at least a mentor before going into any online business will reduce your trial and error period. For example, for years i was wasting time doing it on my own but after i mergered with a friend to buy a Video Tutorial for $100, within a month i made my first $200 online, so, see, if you want to cut the time it takes for you to succeed at something, find someone who has already succeeded at the thing you want to achieve and get them to coach you on how they did it, which may cost you money but it will save you a lot of time and bring you fastest results.

    To sum up, i totally agreed with your Strategic Requirements You Need to Make It Online.



    • Hi Korede,

      Thanks for dropping your comment.

      Community is definitely an important piece to running a successful online business. It helps motivate you and keep you on the right path especially if you can find one or two people to connect with on a personal level.

      Thanks again.
      Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

  14. HiAderemi,

    Firstly I would like to thank you for the mention. A coach is the most important thing a person can do in order to build a business. We can have our platform all set. Invest in what we need to to make it come together. (The Free way is not a good foundation when trying to build a business)

    Then comes the mentor who will take you step by step to the results you want to achieve. Indeed, it can be costly, but time costs money and doing things the free way will take much time.

    A good mentor will be able to walk into your shoes and help you dig down to what you “really” want to accomplish. Then take the necessary steps to teach you how to get there.


    • Hi Donna,

      Glad you mentioned the fact that Free way is not the best option. What most newbies doesn’t know is that there is always a catch with free ways and 9/10 it always result in more time.

      A mentor is the missing piece of the puzzle to have your business together and reach your goals.

      Thanks for dropping a comment.

  15. Hey Enstine and Aderemi,

    First of all, this article is definitely a great contribution.

    I really love the second point you’ve touched here.

    Many people think they really don’t need a mentor, maybe because they think they’re smart enough to figure things out in their own.

    Some others have never heard of the possibility of having a mentor to teach you things that otherwise you’d have to learn through your own experience and most likely, through making mistakes and learning from them.

    Simply think about it… Even the greatest men on the earth have mentors, and it doesn’t have to be someone who you talk to directly. You can be mentored by someone by reading their books, studying their work, etc.

    But, most definitely, everyone who wants to be successful in business, not only online, but any type of business, needs to find a mentor to follow.

    Once again, I loved the article! Great one!

    • Hi Ronald,

      Glad you mention that.

      Many newbies believes they don’t need a mentor due to one reason or the other. Actually most of them believes that by starting an online business means they will start making money instantly. While that is possible, it’s very uncommon.

      To start any type of business, you need to learn the trade and be willing to take necessary action. When most of them hit a roadblock, they immediately switch off, label online business a scam or believe the method can’t work for them.

      But getting a mentor and setting a realistic goal will help them avoid jumping into conclusion and build a successful business overtime.

  16. These listed requirements are really important, you have shared such great experienced insights on this like having a mentor might be a little bit expensive but it will help us track down things that we are doing right and wrong.

    And also you have mentioned Getting traffic to your website is the fundamental requirement of your online business and getting it right will go along way to running a successful campaign.

    The main thing is traffic but not just the traffic, we should get the right traffic to sell things and make out of it.

    That’s really required

    I’m desperately looking for some example based articles for driving the right traffic to a blog or an affiliate shop.

    Hoping to have some answers;


  17. Hi Einstein,

    Thanks for the great share. You mentioned all the main points that is much needed to prosper in an online business. Having a mentor at the right time is of utmost importance as this may lead you to the correct path you need to go. Normally, bloggers start without mentors and it takes a very long time to reach a level where they can be called as successful.

    Also, Wealthy Affiliate is one that I never tried so far. I would like to have a go at it soon. Another point you mentioned about setting a goal is also very important so that the planned actions will lead the way to a successful online business.

    Thanks once again for your great share.

    • Hi Reji,

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your opnion. Starting an online business is easy in theory but to succeed in the long term, you need to have a mentor and a plan to lead the way.

      A mentor can help you overcome the struggles involve in getting started and run a successful blog or other online business.

      Am glad you’re considering checking out WA platform. Its has one of the best community so far.

      Thanks again.

  18. Hi Aderemi and Enstine, great tips! You really do need to have mentors when you get started with your business and really for life! Mentors can help guide you along the way and give you honest criticism to help you become even better.
    I could not have continued with my blogging and business without a great community behind me. Having goals was key too and they have become clearer now that I’m full time with this.
    I’ve been looking at various coaches too and that is on my bucket list.
    Thanks for all the great suggestions here and have a wonderful day and new week Aderemi and Enstine.

    • Hi Lisa,

      As you point out, mentors are really important to not only keep running your business but also to keep motivated.

      Setting goals will help you stay on track and remind you of taking the necessary action that will benefit your business in the long run.

      It’s great that you’re also looking into getting a coach.
      Thanks for stopping by and dropping a comment.
