What do I need to do to start a home based marketing agency, or consultation service from home? Do I need to be an online marketing “guru” or master of web design? Do I need to understand how all of the blogging technology works, or how to do complex and esoteric programming tricks? Or, can I just spend hours and hours learning all of the guru “tricks” and techniques, and get good enough to offer them on my own?
In this article I’m going to share with you what I truly believe is the BEST online marketing opportunity for 2013, and why if you’ve struggled to earn a full time living online, you MUST consider this an option before giving up and throwing in the towel.
