Moving Overseas - why & how ?
If you've read our Moving Overseas About Us page, you'll know that I moved abroad early in 2006. On this page we tell you the story behind why & how this guide was created & how you too could create a site like ours about a subject that you are passionate about.
Whilst searching the internet for information about different countries, visas, work permits, property & even learning languages, I realised how huge the task was. Despite finding lots of useful stuff, it was taking hour after hour of sifting through search engine results pages & the often questionably relevant pages they directed me to, to find good, useful information.
I figured there must be a better way than this & that surely there must be web sites out there that covered the whole subject of moving abroad. However much I searched, although I found lots of useful sites on the subject, I struggled to find one great site that brought it all together in one place. My list of bookmarks became longer & longer so I starting organising them into relevant folders & sub folders, started making notes to summarise the main points I was looking for & where I could find the information about each subject.
After months of sometimes painful research, occasional delightful discovery of a gem of a web site or resource and a couple of trips abroad, it finally dawned upon me that maybe I could create my own Moving Overseas Guide, to bring together all the information I had found. It just seemed such a waste to have compiled this huge list of categorised web sites, notes & pictures from our trips, when perhaps I could make them available to people like us who were planning on moving overseas.
Well, while I was looking for information on starting a business overseas, I found a company which seemed to have the solution. This company who's owner participates daily in the support forums, provides a complete set of guides, books, tools & support to enable almost anyone to create their own highly ranked web site & turn it into a profitable business.
Imagine making a living from something you are passionate about & imagine the freedom you could have if you worked from home.
Well, now you can have an online business of your own. You can set your own hours & work at your own pace.
Your site could be about anything from Arts & Crafts, Gardening, Pets to Z-Cars. The choice is yours.
No, I'm not kidding you - if you are interested in a subject, it is highly likely others will be too and it is possible, with the right guidance & tools, to create your own web site & make money from it ! I built my site about "moving overseas" & it's working for me !
In my opinion this "system" I found, can be used by virtually anyone, including:
Find YOUR Small Business (or Idea).
This is just a very small part of the information & tools provided by this "system" which enables the non-technical to build a web site & indeed a business. You need nothing else. No other software, no other reading materials. It is ALL included. On second thoughts, thats not exactly true. You also need to be prepared to put in the time & effort. There is no such thing as a "get rich quick" scheme that actually works, so if thats what you want, then this is not for you!
Like most small business sites, you have little free traffic. So what should you do if you are otherwise satisfied with that site? Funnel thousands of free, warm and targeted visitors to it every day.
What if you do not like your site? What if you have parked domain(s)? Can you transfer over to Site Build It! and do it right this time? Absolutely! SBI! will show you if/when/how to do it.
Whilst doing research & writing pages for Moving Overseas Guide, I don't even consider it to be work because I enjoy it so much as I'm both excited & passionate about moving overseas as well as about this "system" which has enabled me to publish this site.
The key ? - choose a topic which you are passionate about, because if its something you love, then it's not work !
