Top 7 Small Business Resources for 2005

If you want to start a business in 2005, and start making money almost immediately, the sites listed below are some of the best I have found. I've chosen each site because it is absolutely outstanding in providing the tools you need to get started, as well as taking you through the steps you need to get started immediately.

My1stBusiness.com - http://www.my1stbusiness.com - This site is owned by Ben Botes, who is currently working on a doctoral degree in business. Ben will take you through every phase of creating your business, and it doesn't matter how large or small it is. You'll find all of the information you need right here.

Teleclasses are currently free, and you'll find a wide variety of top notch business coaches to help you build your business.

This site is scheduled to go to a paid model soon, but it will definitely be worth the price tag. If you're looking for a one stop solution to constantly update your business knowledge, and stay ahead of your competition, this is it.

Ron Olinger - http://ronolinger.ws - Everyone needs a little motivation, and Ron is the guy to help you with that.

He offers a newsletter called "Winning Attitudes" that is absolutely dynamite. You'll find lots of quality tips and information. Definitely a must read if you are struggling to get started.

Not your run of the mill newsletter, it will help you achieve what you want to achieve in both your persona and professional life.

Ultimate Marketing Center - http://www.ultimatemarketingcenter.com - Hands down, this is the best web host on the Internet.

However, the reason I selected this site as a business site is this: it is a complete and total solution for starting your business.

You'll get a complete web hosting account with all of the bells and whistles, as well as 1000s of dollars in software and ebooks to teach you everything you need to know about building a business.

What makes this site better than any other online is that it's a complete solution. It includes affiliate program management software, unlimited autoresponders, custom made scripts the owner sells for $35 each on his other sites, unlimited email accounts, and a generous sized web hosting account.

There's nothing else like it on the Internet, and it's the only place where you can run your entire business for only $19.95 per month. The support is excellent.

Website.ws - http://www.website.ws - For the newcomer to the Internet, this is the site you need to start your business.

You'll get a domain name, a generous mult-tier affiliate program to help you build a backend income, and a website builder that is so easy to use, a child can build a web site.

There are also videos to teach you web site building, as well as a nice 20 page ebook to show you how to market this opportunity and make money from it.

It's the easiest solution I know of to starting a business on the Internet, and you don't need to know HTML. You can also use your web site account to build your primary business and generate another source of income.

Coachville.com - http://www.coachville.com - Thinking of starting a service business?

Even if you aren't interested in starting any type of coaching business, this site is definitely for you.

They offer a wide variety of free and paid courses, and you can even earn your certification as a coach. This site will cut your learning curve dramatically, and you'll be up and running in no time.

Alexa - http://www.alexa.com - When it comes to smoking the competition, this is the site you want to use.

You'll get detailed stats, contact information, site rankings, sites that are linked to a particular web site, and a whole lot more.

No other site will offer you more comprehensive information on what's hot and what's not on the Internet. They also offer a toolbar, and it's free to use the site.

Automate Internet Marketing - http://www.automateinternetmarketing.com/ - Internet marketer Patric Chan offers you a free marketing membership with plenty of excellent information. What blew my mind when I saw this is that Patric is giving it away.

If you're new to the Internet, and new to Internet marketing, start here. Patric knows how to explain marketing in a way that is easy to understand.

Whether you've started a business and want to increase your profits, or you want to start a business, now is the time. These seven resources are not to be overlooked.
