    what I found very necessary while my first steps, was to understand first, that the real money comes from sales. You can offer services, products, affiliate offers anything you like, but nail it to your brain: no sale -> no money.
    Second is, learn how to generate traffic. Driving customers to your site is the most mandatory thing, every marketer has to master: no customers -> no sale -> no money…

    Then I would recommend your find a good niche(means a good base of customers to which you can sell a variety of products, while having less competition), find a product to sell, set up a site and start it.

    If you need to ask this question, then you are not yet ready to start an online business. Do some more reading and research and you should be able to answer that question for yourself.

    What works for me is to create a site to sell services. Than promote this site mainly by SEO. Build good backlinks. Than outsource the services. Therefore I do not need to work so much but earn decent money month by month.

    Start with figuring out what your "online business" should look like, before you start wasting all your time on SEO and whatnot.
    What will you sell ? Will your product need to offer support for your customers ? How big is your competition and how will you stand out from the rest ? Do you have the proper marketing knowledge to create the campaigns that fit your product and will catch your prospects full attention ? How much time and effort are you willing to put in ?

    Internet marketing is NOT an online business. The marketing part is a HUGE chapter inside your online business...
    SEO is just a TINY part of it and doesn't have much to do with the actual marketing at all...

    Don't underestimate it and please....don't buy some "Push a few buttons and BOOM your Wealthy" nonsense product.

    There are many kinds of business in online business industry and all online business need domain registration, hosting and a website. According to my business research eCommerce business is very profitable but it depends on you that which niche business category you are going to choose .

    Find the offer/product you want to sell. Figure out monteization/traffic method; organic seo, ppc, display, aff, ecom, etc... Build site and content. Put traffic plan into motion (ppc - built campaigns in adwords or display network sites; seo - backlink). Collect checks.
