One of the significant benefits of an online business is that you don't have to allocate a lot of capital to start it. Although each business is different, there are a lot of business models that allow you to start with nothing but a computer and Internet connection.
For business owners who are just starting out and don't have a lot of budget to burn, perhaps hiring others to write articles and submit them to article directories is not yet an option. Call me names, but when I started I couldn't just burn a few hundreds of dollars to get my articles written.
As with any business, it is a choice between money and time. If you can invest time to work on your business, you don't have to spend money. However, if you can hire others to do that, you can save a lot of time for other activities.
When you start seeing the revenue from your business, I recommend that you hire people to do tasks that you don't enjoy. Maybe it is article writing or something else.
However, in the beginning, consider writing those articles by yourself. Don't believe that you can't write. It simply is not true. If you feel that you can't write an article, try dictating your thoughts into voice recorder device.
Transcribe the recording and make a few editing, and you should have your first draft.
Another trick is to use article templates. Writing is hard for most people because they can't keep the flow long enough to finish the article. With article templates, you can make a skeleton and expound upon each point without the need to pay attention to the flow.
I've taught my customers how to overcome their inner believe that kept them from writing articles. I helped them get over it and start writing. Most often, they only need a bit of work to break self-sabotage and follow through.
You'll be surprised that the solution is often doing what is takes to finish it anyway. Keeping the momentum is the key to getting unstuck.
