Welcome to BusinessBolts.com. It’s a website for entrepreneurs, business owners, and people planning to start their own business. But more than that, it’s a place where you can learn how to make a positive impact with your online business.
Traditionally, so many methods for getting traffic online revolve around finding loopholes. But if you make a positive impact by providing value to your ideal visitors, you can get more traffic than you ever dreamed possible.
Why did I start this site?
Lisa Parmley started BusinessBolts.com in July of 2012. I started running a business in 2001. In that time I’ve created products, worked with a lot of advertising (both buying and offering it on websites), and earned from affiliate programs. So I’ve entered a lot of business models.
I love the freedom having my own business has given me. After gaining a Master’s Degree I worked as a Research Scientist and although I really liked my career, I wanted to do my own thing. Not sure how I was going to make it a go with a science-related business, I started up a training company helping people pass an exam. I competed with large companies and did very well. I grew my business from nothing, out of my home which at the time was a small apartment.
I’ve moved into providing training materials for others who want to start an online business.
I’ve also transitioned away from creating products and I’ve earned a lot of money from Adsense and affiliate/CPA offers. That’s always been my main love. Being able to provide people with free and high quality information, distribute it on a website and monetize it.
So it’s only a natural evolution that now I’m building a website to help small business owners and people starting their own business. I love the publishing business model. I love being able to reach a large audience and get involved with the communities I create. I love the idea of giving content away for free and monetizing it with relevant ads. So that’s what I’m doing here.
I fully believe that your business success is determined in most part by how much you help people. The more you help others then the greater rewards you will receive.
When starting your business and even just analyzing it, you need to ask yourself questions like these:
Who am I helping (or influencing)?
How many people do I help?
How much do I help them?
How effective is the help I’m providing?
So that’s my challenge, to help as many people as possible realize the freedoms that come from owning their own business. To create something from nothing. To fund your life’s ambitions. To break free from working for someone else (if you want that). To help others by creating more jobs.
These are big things. And it’s my mission to help you get that for yourself.
So that’s what this site is about.
I know there are lots of sites out there on making money online. This isn’t one of them. I’m not going to talk about how you can turn your computer into an ATM machine or work from the beach. Starting a business takes effort and dedication. I won’t kid you about that.
I’m also not going to corporatize this site like many of the larger magazines do. Most larger magazines have too much content that really isn’t relevant for the small business owner.
This site will stand apart from both the blog model and the corporate-run business magazines. It’s for people like you who want to start, grow and take off with their own business. Who want to outlast the statistics. Who want to either ‘retire’ from a job or just earn extra money. If that’s you then this site will have the type of content on it that will mean something to you.
Between myself and my team we’ll do our best to uncover the topics and content that will help you grow and even start a business. We’ll also try to uncover real-life stories from people who’ve grown a business from scratch.
It’s my goal to help a whole lot of people with this site. Please help me accomplish that by spreading the word about it, providing me with feedback, and stay up-to-date about BusinessBolts.com with our free newsletter.
