Earning a living online, using anaZana
Earning a living online using anaZana is entirely possible. I know, I am in transition from working for others, to working for myself online. Here's how I do it, and how you can too.
Ninety percent of anaZana users do not make their own site. Even though anaZana is more powerful that other platforms, it takes a small learning curve to master. So 10% percent of our users actually make their own site. They have the time. They like creativity. They like the process. This 10% percent can actually benefit from this post. They have most of the skills needed already.
Therefore, one target market of anaZana is people that have some creative website skills (photoshop, basic html, and general multimedia skills), and they want to make money using these skills creating websites for the 90% that hires someone to make their site.
Anyone can develop the skills needed to make websites for others using the anaZana platform, it is far easier to use than website creation software. For instance, I was horrible using Dreamweaver or FrontPage to create a site, yet could easily do so using anaZana.

Step 2) Marketing skillsWhat you need are some basic online marketing skills. Finding customers is your first step. Do not worry, anyone can learn how to market online. James Hickey has some great videos for this on YouTube. This is a new skill-set that few possess.
My solution is to hire a professional marketer, because I like to make websites, but do not like to market. I split the profits with my marketer, even though I do a lot more work than he does. He goes from business to business in person to market, so this is one more option for you too. Although I am working on an automated marketing solution online... it is the best way to work.
Agree with them on a solution. A basic info site in San Diego, is currently sold for $300 dollars. Once you get good at using anaZana, this will take you a few hours to make, $25 to $100 dollars an hour for your work is typical. A basic eCommerce site in San Diego is $600. The same incomes apply, as an eCommerce site generally takes more time to put together: products or services must be placed and uploaded. Although this is easy to do, using the anaZana platform. It was built around the concept of eCommerce. Most of the sites you make will be eCommerce sites. I collect 25 to 50% up front to start a website project. NEVER start a project without a deposit. Lots of people will have you working for them, and never pay you a cent over time. Big waste.
Create the site. Present it to your client for feedback. Make the changes. Finalize the agreement and collect the final payment.
You will no doubt get orders for sites that are too difficult for your skill-set. This is not a problem. For instance, you get an order for a site that requires a bit of programming, or special design work. Simply contact our support team and ask how much the specific requirements will cost. Add that amount to the final cost of the website. Easy. So anyone at any level of website development competence can make any size or complexity of eCommerce site with teamwork. And you thought you did not have a website development team?
