The next important section I want to talk about is your resources. How
much time do you have to devote? Do you need more? How much cash
do you have to put down? Do you need more? In this short introduction
section, just for examples purposes, I'm going to give you some insight

as to my own personal working time table and how much cash I spend
on what, so that you can see how similar products sometimes require
diverse panning and bring up very different situations.

Something that's very important to me here is that in light of the last
section on professionalism, you don't misunderstand what I'm showing
you as 'do everything a hundred times over and spend a week on every
little section until it's perfect'. Every single product and service that you
create, or decide to sell for someone else is going to bring it's own
revelations with regards to cost and the time out of your schedule that it
takes and this is something very important that should be taken into
account in the planning process, because lets face it, you don't want to
find yourself three quarters of the way through a product, just to find out
that you've run out of time or cash.

Here's an example of my personal schedule for you. Bear in mind that
my business is my job, and I don't do any outside work aside from
freelance affiliate promotion for others. For this reason, I don't expect
you to follow this, or ours to be the same. This is here for one reason
only, and that's to give you a heads up. Ok so, week one, I'll do general
admin work of the business and sites, keep on top of accounts, make a
few new contacts and generally talk to a lot to people and current
customers. Read feedback, make small adjustments and so on, less
than an hour a day if I can help it.

Week two; along comes one of the contacts I made last week who
suggests an idea for a new site. This is where things go crazy and I'll
spend pretty much the whole of the week and every spare hour

planning and crafting this product and it's sales material, the follow-up,
site graphics and preparing any scripts etc.

Week three comes the launch, and aside from spending a few hours a
day on admin duty and making sure everything is functioning correctly,
and arranging, preparing and getting the launch promotion drive going,
this is all that's going on.

Week four, with everything running smoothly again it's back to the
admin, meeting people and planning new products, and analysing and,
most importantly, improving the way things are at the moment. This
process of easy laid back work, onto major hard time consuming stuff,
then back to the slower pace seems to be a pretty regular pattern you
can rely on when creating your own sites.

Here's another example for you. The secondary affiliate promotion that I
do with other people, removing the need to create my own products
takes a big chunk out of that time. I may spend an hour or two a day in
total creating promotions for others, writing new ad material and general
business admin, but that's it.

When you consider not all websites that you create have a time limit,
which is especially apparent when creating sites with a partner we’ve
done with this one, and you can spread that work load out over the
course of a week, two weeks, a month or maybe more, the answers to
'How much time does it take?' is easy; as much time as you can spare.
What I want to show is that something that could seem too huge to
comprehend having the time for to start with can be spread out over
time. Creating your own products does take longer. However, I don't

want you to think that you're restricted to affiliate promotion just
because you have other real life engagements such as work. This is by
far not the case, and something that you have to pick up on right now if
you're going to be a success when we move onto the practical sections.

The same is true for the financial side of things. How much cash does it
take to start an online business? Well, to be honest, not a lot. You could
easily get going for maybe $50. Get a website, create a product and get

I want you to know though, that you're not gated from creating
something big, something profitable and a business to be proud of
because of small time constraints or budgetary concerns. A little of each
is good to start out with.
