Start A Business Online Free

start a business online free.

When you want to start a business online free, there will be some choices you’ll need to make to be successful.

A lot of people believe that when they get a website for free that all they need to do is use the website builder to create the site and Walla the money will start to pour in.

Well, that is not how it works!


Free Website Builders


First off, as great as website builders are when you sign up for a free membership, each provider that offers these free sites have limitations in place. These restrictions will vary from one provider to the next depending on who they are and what their entire business is all about.

For instance, some providers like SquareSpace, which by the way are a great company for what they offer will give you a trial period in this case 14-days. After your trial period, you’ll need to upgrade or start from scratch elsewhere.

So let’s just take SquareSpace of the table.

There are other providers like Wix and Weebly, which are also among two of the best, but the limitations they set after you use their website builders do not allow you to execute an online business properly on a free plan.

You see most of the providers out there, and we want to stay with the better ones, make their income from people setting up sites using their website builders to promote their products/services.

They will set up multiple plans so they can maximize their earning potential and offer you the user different payment plans according to your use, for size and type of site.

Their free programs are extremely limited, and you can end up having their advertising on your website for them to profit from your marketing efforts.

To truly start a business online for free, you need a provider that will allow you to use their website builder to create your site for business. You want no advertising or limitations on your site for them unless you want to be an affiliate and earn commissions from them.

I have the solution for you!


What you need is a provider that is more than just a site being hosted on a server for you. You need Wealthy Affiliate University!

what is a website builder offer

To read the full review then click on Free Website Building and Hosting! You’ll have the opportunity to get an explanation of what they have to offer.
So that you know, I left my previous provider just over a year ago to become a member of Wealthy Affiliate to use their services and wish I had done it years ago.

The reason these are the right provider for you is they offer everything that is needed for starting and working an online business. Where the other providers start with a website builder to help you create a site, Wealthy Affiliate will take you the rest of the way.

The other providers offer you one small piece of what you need where Wealthy Affiliate offers the whole package.

Because Wealthy Affiliate is more than just a website and hosting company they will give you two websites for free that you can use without all the limitations the other providers, enforce.

Depending on who you speak to, a lot of people recognize the company as Wealthy Affiliate University. Here is what they are all about:

Supply a Website Builder for the Site
Train you in Creating and Developing the Site
Teach you about proper SEO methods
Show you how to incorporate Social Media
Learn where and how to use Affiliate Programs

As a free member, you will get the website but only have full access to the community, and all that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.  Because WA offers so much more than the other providers, they will give you a better free package. They know most people that are serious about wanting a successful online business will want to go premium to speed their progress up and make their site earn money faster from all the ongoing training.

You can make the free package earn you an income from the internet but for most people building a business this way will take considerably more time for most.

Now depending on your circumstances, I can refer you to another post that may free up the money you’d need to have full access to the premium package. This idea would allow you to build your business faster and in return most likely start earning an online income much quicker. Check out How Can I Get A Free Website!

If the free package is all that you can start out with, then you can still build and start your free business, you’ll just need to teach yourself and learn from what’s available on the different sites for free.

It’s been done in the past, and people are doing it right now as you read this article but just be prepared to spend more time and work harder until you can pay for the critical things you’ll require. Businesses take time, money and energy to work. Online business is no different than an offline business when you look at the core features of what constitutes operating a business.

Never let somebody lead you to believe you can get rich doing basically nothing while your site operates on auto pilot. I’ve been on the Internet and running my business for just over 11-years now, and I can tell you that is not how it works. You can start a business online free, but sooner or later you will need to spend money somewhere if you expect to have no boss and make a serious income and keep everything legit.

For your journey to start a business online free, enter in a domain name!

Great article. I love the Wealthy Affiliate website builder, and it is the easiest and quickest way that I have come across to build a WordPress Site.

The hosting, of course, is also out of this world and I have learnt so much since being here. What is your best part about being a member of Wealthy Affiliate?


    July 15, 2016 at 10:28 am

    One of the best parts that I find is when you want to know the correct way to do something whether it is on improving your site or creating traffic for ranking you get answers that work and not sales pitches for somebody just trying to move products/services.

    The people in the community answer you to what they have had success with and how they do it to make it happen.

I have recently joined Wealthy Affiliate and it has been a great learning experience. The free course that they provide is very clear and simple to follow. Also while you learn you get the chance to build your own website. For me though I took the plunge and upgraded to the premium package. Sure I could’ve stayed with the free option but going premium I will get to my goals far sooner.

    Upgrading to premium will help you to meet your goals sooner. Even though you can build an online business with the free package where you do not have all the limitations as the other providers put on their free sites, and premium is faster.

    As a free member having to search around the Internet for all your essential resources takes time and then you have to decipher through the information to see what works and is up to date. As a premium member, everything is at your fingertips, and you can ask and get answers whenever you get stuck on something.

    Being Premium and having full access is the best way to go.

Hey Travis,

You’re right when you say that many folks think that soon after building up the website, money starts pouring in. Am a victim of this fallacy, and I’m now discouraged.

I can’t do any online stuff alone anymore.

I’ve gotten this fear and discouragement that it can’t happen because it’s more than 2 months now and I’ve not seen results.

Could you please give me personal help if I start all over again and use the site builder above to create a business for my passion?

    Hi Dave, and just so you know most people will take anywhere from 3-12 months to start making money online so do not despair for putting in two months with the work and no results. The biggest thing with building any site on the Internet these days is whether you are designing your site to have proper SEO techniques built into it and how you market the site.

    With the help of Wealthy Affiliates courses and training plus the community anyone can learn to make a site perform but it will still take some time. Using this platform will work for you, so I and many others in the community will be able to answer your questions and get you on the right track.

    It’s easy to sign up by clicking on my #1 Recommendation link or Wealthy Affiliate banner in the right column and see you inside to help get you on your way.

Hi Travis,

I agree, Wealthy Affiliate is simply the best hosting out there, and has the best website builder as well.

Before stumbling across Wealthy Affiliate, I did lots of research on different website builders and found WordPress[dot]org to be the best. So, when I joined WA, I was a bit skeptical about how good THEIR site builder was, until I found out it WAS WordPress! After finding that out, I felt so much more at ease.

Anyway, thanks for the great, detailed article. I enjoyed reading it. 🙂

    Like you I have discovered how great WordPress is for building sites. When I first started, you needed to use a software program that required you to know and understand code to create a site.

    Nowadays most of all the providers have a website builder for you to use, so you no longer require knowing how to code. Of all the different website builders to chose from WordPress has the most programmers and people using it as it is an open source program. Any of the other website builders as good as they may be will always have fewer developers or people on staff working on improving and fixing the problems they may have compared to what everyone is doing with WordPress.

    So far nobody offers a better free or paid package for the use of WordPress for building sites like Wealthy Affiliate.
