Many people have become millionaires pursuing business ventures on the internet.
But many more have failed. And not only have they failed, they have lost a lot of money and
time in the process. In fact, more than 90 percent of all web based business ventures fail
within the first year.
It appears that most fail because they do not fully understand that running a business is, in
the end, all about marketing. As with any business, successful or unsuccessful use of products or systems will widely vary
among our users depending on many factors, including but not limited to, the users' skill set,
creativity, motivation, level of effort, individual expertise, capacity and talents, business
experience, cost structure, the market in which the user competes and extensive market
research with the end result of the creation of an effective marketing plan that is diligently
implemented.
Your purchase and/or use of any information, products and services that you find in or through
this book, or anywhere for that matter, should be based upon your own due diligence and
judgment on how best to use those products. You are also advised to get third party advice
from an experienced business adviser.
We will not be responsible for any success or failure of your venture. We only provide
information in this book that you can use to try to earn an income. If you are going to go forward on any business venture, be sure to do your market research
thoroughly and prepare your business and marketing plans first.
We do not mean to discourage you. We just want you fully informed Compensation Disclosure

How To Make A Drop Shipping Site The Easy Way
The Micro-Business Strategy
The micro-business strategy is one of the simplest approaches to making money on the web.
Many people who would otherwise be stuck in boring lifestyles, have, starting with limited
budgets, built enviable incomes.
Used extensively by the web marketing community, the micro-business strategy makes it
possible for every day folk to compete with online mega businesses.
As you study this book you will learn how incredibly inexpensive it is to start up a micro-
business using drop shipping.
And you will further see that you do not have to join drop shipping programs, pay consultants,
by systems and software to get yourself up an online.
Because of these remarkably low expenses, a micro-business is particularly appropriate for
someone who is considering an internet business and just wants to try his hand had a
business startup to see what it's like. And it is also particularly appropriate for someone who
is unemployed or underemployed and does not have cash to waste but has, perhaps, extra
time that can be used to start up a micro-business.
The concept of the micro-business is quite straightforward. The micro-business can be
defined as an economic activity, set up with minimal investment of cash, pursued to generate
a regular stream of income.
In general, it is a sweat equity activity that relies on the determination of its owner for survival.
For the most part it is characterized by single or small family ownership.
In an off-line environment, a micro-business owner most often does all the work. As such the
owner may be limited to a single stream of income due to the limited time that that individual
has.
Page 7

The Micro Business Strategy
Copyright Gary C. Granai – All Rights Reserved
Online, however, where the sales and delivery process can be automated by using drop
shipping for order fulfillment, a micro-business owner can choose to build one or two streams
of income or a network of many independent streams of income that, if properly managed,
can drive significant income levels. The micro-business owner is typically a mover and shaker with a lot of heart and desire but
with few resources. That person possesses a willingness to learn and apply himself, to try,
one who after he falls flat on his face gets right back up and back in the race. Though he has
limited or no business experience, he is not willing to accept the status quo or life as it was
dumped upon him. He is one who changes rather than asks for change. He is a shepherd
who is willing to fight the wolves rather than to ask for protection by shepherds.
The typical online micro-business model uses a micro-websites, also known as micro-sites,
that are inexpensive, simple and tightly focused on a single keyword or product. And if goods
are sold, drop shipping for order fulfillment is used because it automates time wasting tasks
and the requirement to own inventory.
Micro-sites consist of as few as five to ten pages of descriptive content and are based on
WordPress content management systems or other disarmingly simple templates. The startup
costs for an income stream using one of these systems are generally less than $10 plus the
owners work. Technical knowledge is not necessary much beyond that of cutting and pasting
ability.
People who use micro-websites have an advantage over most beginners because beginners,
very often on the advice of some web guru, who makes more money selling a big site than a
micro-site, or in an effort to offset their lack of knowledge of marketing, tend to build larger,
more complex, multi-product websites. They justify excessive costs by incorrectly assuming
that a large complex website will sell for them despite of their lack of marketing ability.
But, when it comes to search engine position and buyer response, these unfocused websites
cannot compete with the micro-site that is tightly focused on a particular keyword.
The reason is simple. When people go to the Web to search for a product or information, they
have very specific goals in mind and they want instant, relevant information. For example, if
someone searches for a “super camera can”, he wants to be taken to a site that focuses on
“super camera cans” and not some mega site filled with many other offers.
Page 8

The Micro Business Strategy
Copyright Gary C. Granai – All Rights Reserved
And the search engines recognize this. To keep people returning to their search engines,
they design their search engine algorithms to move the focused websites to the top positions
so that search engine users get relevant information. And because the focused website is at the top it gets more visitors and the owner should
make more money.
So it is a savvy marketer that builds the focused micro-site. Such marketers also rely on drop shipping so that they do not have to be involved in any way
in the order fulfillment process.
This results in essentially an automatic system and frees the marketer to go forward with
another micro-site selling a different product or providing different information. The final result
is a second stream of income.
One must caution someone who is intent on running a micro-business on the internet and
using micro-sites that even though the term micro is use, macro planning is very necessary.
And planning can almost be more important because of the tightly focused sites that a micro-
business uses. As an aside, let me make the comment that most of the publications and assistance that you
find available are for small, offline businesses. If you look at the definitions of small
businesses used by governments and lenders, you will find a small businesses are
businesses with up to 500 employees and millions of dollars in income. The publications
printed related to the small businesses are really beyond what the micro-business
entrepreneur needs.
So even if you have some of these publications and business planning guides such as those
that you can get from the US government Small Business Administration, the material in this
book is significantly different because it ignores the off-line business and focuses strictly on
running an internet business.
The difference is very important. You have to focus on internet planning and systems rather
than inventory, cash registers and employees.

What You Will Be Doing
You will follow the basic micro business strategy and make a tightly focused micro-site.
This is a low cost, low effort, do it yourself way to make money using Amazon.com
as your
drop ship supplier and by using WordPress as your content management system. By taking the do-it-yourself approach that we guide you through, on a step-by-step basis ,you
get on-the-job training that teaches you how to set up your own micro-business and micro-
sites. You will create our niche by targeting specific products. Targeting specific products makes it
easier for you to get high in the search engines. And that makes it easier for you to make
money.
Your approach with this method is to pick a product line and then write reviews that you post
in your site. And writing and posting is easy because you use WordPress. This is but one approach to using drop shipping. There are many others. They are discussed
in a supplement that is attached to this business plan.
How You Will Make Money
Following this strategy, you will make money in at least two ways. The first is by adding Google AdSense advertising to your site. You will get paid for each time
someone clicks on an advertisement.
Then you will add your chosen products and you will get paid by Amazon.com
for any
products that you sell as an affiliate.

What Are Your Chances Of Making Money
Many people make a lot of money with sites that use Amazon.com
as a product supplier. But
your success depends on you. At the end of the day it is all about how well you construct
your site and market it.
I set my expectations at $5 per day and use a micro-business network of sites to create
multiple sources of income that add up to a comfortable monthly income. Even though I set
my expectations at $5 per day, I work hard to make sure that I make more.
Executing Your Plan Is Key
I emphasize that even though the sites are small you still have to complete your sales funnel,
do product research, choose products to avoid the competition, find a reliable drop ship
supplier, choose the proper selling platform or content management system and then, of
course, do the marketing.
It is not the purpose of this particular book to cover in detail these processes. They are
covered in one of our other publications, the Drop Ship Guide
.
The Drop Ship Guide
takes you through the planning process necessary to merchandise your
products. In other words its show you what you have to do to create your sales funnel, how to
do your product research and choose products that allow you to avoid the competition rather
than hitting it straight on, how to find a reliable drop ship supplier for the product that you have
chosen, how to choose from the many selling platforms. But for now, going through the process in the book is a good first step to getting online and
making money.
How Much Will A Micro-Site Cost You
You will need a web site host and a domain name. If you already have a website host that
allows for hosting unlimited domains, you will have to buy another domain and that should
cost you about $10.
If you do not have a web site host, you will need one and a domain. If you choose well, you
Page 11
of 27
The Micro Business Strategy
Copyright Gary C. Granai – All Rights Reserved
can get a web site host that will give you your one free domain. If you choose well you will
pass less than $10 per month for the hosting service. In this tutorial we use LUNAR and
recommend them highly. And here is a list of others. I recommend you take a look at Lunar
Now.
Everything else you need to make an Amazon.com
store like the one at About Elliptical
Trainer Machines and to get on line and start making money is free.
So again. The cost will be somewhat less than $10 per month for a web hosting service and
about $10 for extra domains if you set up more than one micro-business.
You Do Not Have To Hire Consultants And You Do Not Know How To Use HTML
You will use the WordPress system and use their templates and systems. It is pretty much a
fill in the blanks process.
Look at my site at About Elliptical Trainer Machines I used a template for the site design. I
filled in blanks to make the site work. I used the free visual editor that is inside WordPress for
the posts and made them look nice just using that editor. WordPress has easy picture addition and linking features. And a lot more.
You will, however, have to know how to use an FTP program. It is easy. If you do not, here is
a link to a video tutorial. How to FTP
. And in this tutorial, there are links to a complete set of step by step instructional videos that
will show you exactly what to do. More about that later.
Now let's start gathering resources and get ourselves ready to go on-line.

Making Your Website
What Is In The Making Your Website Section
In this section you will be taken step by step through the set up of a micro-site. Once you go
through this process, you will have a micro-site template. But more importantly, you will be
able to modify that template to sell whatever product or information you wish.
Load This Tutorial Onto Your Computer
Because when making your website you will work at your computer, you will find it convenient
to have the tutorial on your computer. To put it on your computer, go to The Micro-Business

The Importance Of Marketing
After following these steps you will have a site ready to make money.
But it will not make money without active marketing. Read about that at Micro-Business
Marketing. Step By Step Guide
Follow the steps below to get started. If you have questions, or need help, go to Micro-
Business-Help
Pick A Product
Do that by going to Amazon.com
and find something that you know a bit about. For example
you might go into the music category and find folk music. Page 13

You will note that in my video tutorials on how to set up WordPress, I chose elliptical trainer
machines because I know something about them.
In the beginning, you will be writing short reviews of the products you are selling. So it is best
to pick something you know about. Later, as you start bringing in money, you can outsource
the writing and spend your time making more sites and more money. Fix Your Niche On The Web
You should have already decided on a niche. Now what you want to do is find a keyword that
you can use for your domain name associated with that niche so that you can try to dominate
that niche on the web.
You start by picking a keyword that is related to the product you want to sell or the subject
about which you want to provide information. See Keyword-Search
and W
ho Is
Pick A Domain Name.
Having decided on your product, you will have to fix your place on the web with your domain
name.
Pick a domain name that is related to your product. Fill it, as much as possible, with product
related key words (words people use to search for that product) as possible.
An easy way to start is to look at Google Suggest
and see what they suggest when you type
in key words related to your product.
You can also do a free keyword search at Keyword Tool
Note that there are two tools to use
in that page.
As you work, you will have to check if the domain name that you want is available. The
easiest way to check is to use the tool at Who Is Use that just to check availability. Do not
register it yet. Page 14
of 27
The Micro Business Strategy
Copyright Gary C. Granai – All Rights Reserved
Don't waste time and money by registering there. Register it with your web host. And your
web host might give it to you free anyway.
In my example for this series, I chose the domain name about-elliptical-trainer-machines.com
. aboutellipticaltrainermachines.com about-ellipticaltraners.com all-about-elliptical-
trainers.com were some of the other choices for me. There are many more even today.
Complete your Website Business Plan. The first step in putting up any website is to complete your website business plan. See
Website-Business-Plan
As you go through this the first time, you will find that the process is somewhat circular.
If you have completed your business plan you will have already chosen your keyword,
domain name and done other research that you are asked to do in this process.
On the other side of the coin, you almost have to go through this process to understand how
to complete your website business plan.
So put your website business plan worksheet on the desk alongside you as you go through
this process and work through both of them at the same time.
Choose A web host At this point you must have a web host. There are good web hosts all over the place. And they are all good. Just ask them.

This video gives you some tips on what to think about when choosing one. See Choosing-A-
Web-Host
I use this one LUNAR PAGES
throughout this video series. You can use whatever host you
want. But for this recipe you need one that supports Simple Scripts
. That is explained below.
Important Note About WordPress Installation
The some of the following steps, namely the installation of WordPress, can be done for you
for $5. It might be worth it just in terms of the value of your time. Information about the
process can be found at Micro Business Website
Use Simple Scripts To Install WordPress
By using the free Simple Scripts service you can install WordPress in a couple steps.
When you get to Simple Scripts you will see that you can do a lot more. WordPress installation is free. Some other services are paid. We will use the WordPress
installation function in Simple Scripts See installing-WordPress-Simplescripts
You Now Have A Website
You are online and your website is set up using the default WordPress theme. It is a nice
theme as far as standard themes go. But the design is not particularly effective in converting
sales. So now we have to dress the site up and make it ready to make money.
To to that we will change its look by changing themes and add some tools so that you can use
WordPress to your best advantage.
Page 16

Install AdSense Ready Themes
AdSense is one of those tools that almost all marketers use to make money. Some marketers
make what are known as “made for AdSense” sites – even though Google does not
particularly like that.
We will be making a drop shipping site that includes AdSense Advertising. And we want to have the site designed to maximize income. That means that we should use a theme that is designed both for AdSense and for converting
visitors into money in your bank account.
See Google-Heat-Map
and AdSense-Ready-Themes
This video shows you how to do it. C

. Download And Install A WordPress Advertising Plugin
You are now ready to start adding advertising. This video will show you how to use a plugin to
add AdSense ads. In the process you will learn how to add other forms of advertisements.
And you will learn how to add other plugins. See WordPress-Advertising-Plugin-Installation
Create a Google AdSense Account If you don't have a Google AdSense account, get one here. It is free.
http://www.AdSense.com
Set Up Your AdSense Account For WordPress
Page 17

You will use an AdSense tower, an AdSense leaderboard, an AdSense block, and AdSense
in-line ads.
This video will show you what you have to do to set up the various advertising blocks.
See Google-AdSense/
Install Google Advertisements
In an earlier step you set up your AdSense account and copied the code for the various ad
formats. In this step you will add that code by using the Advertising Plugin and Widgets.
This video shows you how to do add the code and in the process you learn what widgets are
and how they work so that you can customize your site to your own sense of what looks best.
See WordPress-Google-Advertising-Installation
Add Other Plugins There are other plugins that you should consider. I will list a couple that I use here. You may
find that you want to use others.
One Click Plugin Updater
Article Templates
After The Deadline
Broken Link Checker
Outbound Link Manager
SEO Ultimate
To add these plugins, go to your dashboard, and click on plugins. Then go to add new. Enter
the name of the plugin you want to review and/or add. Click the search button and you will
see a menu of plugins. To install the one you want, just click on install and it will be done for
you automatically.

An Important Tweek
And here is one change that you should make so that your web page addresses make sense
to people and so that the search engines treat you better in the results.
In your administration panel, go to Settings , Permalinks. Select Custom Structure and add /%category%/%postname%/ All your posts will now have the address yourblog/category/post title Important Note
If some of this seems complex for you, some of the above steps can be done for you for $5.
It might be worth it just in terms of the value of your time. Information about the process can
be found at Micro Business Website
Look At Everything In The Dashboard
Now take the time to go through the administration panel and see what it there.
Go ahead and make changes if you wish. Nothing is permanent. If you don't like them, just go
back to the original.
I will say, that for now, however, don't stray too far off what you have right now. It may confuse
things as we finish up.
But do learn the dashboard.

And in the process look at the WordPress forums. They are a great place to get help and
answers.
Make Some Categories
Make some categories to help organize your posts. You might consider categorizing by price
range, or just use the categories that you see in Amazon.com
. However you do it, make them to help visitors narrow their search and keep them in the site
by giving them what they want as fast as you can.
Example About Elliptical Trainer Machines - Categories was renamed Elliptical Trainer
Reviews for the search engines. It is a keyword I am targeting so I want it used wherever I
can.
Consider adding categories for news, articles, and commentary about your topic. Add Some Pages
You have to have some basic information about the product which information and will make
your site stronger in the search engines.
Use the keyword list that you developed originally plus words that are related to the one that
you put into your domain. Then take write that describes the various products that you are
putting into your site and that describe products that people buy when they buy a product like
the one you're promoting from Amazon.com
.
Add 5 to 10 pages using keywords from Google suggest or other keywords you are targeting.
You add these using the page function in your WordPress Admin.
See WordPress-Pages
You can write them yourself, an Article Spinner
or outsource. See Profits In Outsourcing
.

If you are going to write them yourself, I recommend that you use the same techniques that
you will use when you promote your site using article marketing. You can read about article marketing all over the web. To save time and to give you a more
focused approach, here are links to two books on the subject. Article Marketing Domination
.
Wordtracker
Add Some Products Posts In Draft
Now add products to you site. Pick at least 10 products. Be sure you have 2 or 3 per category.
You will add the reviews later. By making the drafts you stay in a groove and it is faster for you
to pick, copy and paste.
To make it easy for you, there is text with a video that shows how we do it. You can do it as
we do it or you can use it for developing your own way of doing things. It is in the section
Make Money With Blogs
Tip To Make Posting Easier
Here is a tip to make your job easier. We recommend that when working with your site, you
use the latest edition of internet Explorer and add these two links to the favorites bar. Doing
that will save you a lot of time.
Sign into the Amazon.com
Affiliate page and then go to the Product Links page. Add that
page to your favorites (or, in other words, bookmark it). When you click on that link you will
be automatically signed in if you are not already, and it makes it so much easier to find
Page 21
of 27
The Micro Business Strategy

products.
Also, add to your bar favorites the link to the New Post page
Review The Products
Now search the web for the exact products that you picked. If they are Amazon.com
products
you are likely to find reviews in many places.
Read the reviews and make your own review summary. On the other hand, you might know a lot about your topic and be able to write your own
reviews. Suppose you know a particular book author's works. You can write your own reviews
of his books.
Each product listing along with the review should be no less than 250 words. Try not to
exceed 500.

Final Notes
The website that you have just completed can be used as a template for additional websites
selling different products.
You can, of course, continue with Amazon.com
and continue making sites to sell specific
products that you find in Amazon.com
Many people do that and they do it quite successfully.
You can also use other products from other companies. To add other products, it should be
quite simple for you to just modify this recipe at a couple points.
Note that you should look very strongly at the eBay affiliate program and as soon as you can
to satisfy the eBay requirements to become an affiliate, add the eBay affiliate system to your
site.
The site that you have built is ready to make money. Now go forward following your
marketing and advertising plan.
