Proof that working online makes money:1. Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook is the sixth richest person in the world.

Let's get back to the business. Before you start any type of online business, you will require a MasterCard to store your earning.
Payoneer is the best alternative for MasterCard.
Why Payoneer MasterCard?
1. To verify Paypal
2. Available in 200+ countries and 150+ currencies
3. Best alternative in countries (like Nepal, Bhutan, etc.) where MasterCard is hardly available
4. Completely free to order
5. Free shipping (i.e. no delivery charges applied)
6. Saves extra commission (taxes) from banks charged to own a MasterCard.

We are almost there. These were the basic things. It is time to learn furthermore.
You will need to create a blog first
Many new users and learners who are unknown about this topic have frequently asked me question:
What is a blog?
A blog is a truncation or abbreviation or short form or whatever you call it, of word "weblog" which means a collection of data and entries published on the internet. People mostly refer a weblog as a blog or website , simply known as "site". The data and entries stored on a blog are known as "posts".

Reasons why you should build your own website
Creating a blog is quite easy. But you have to pick one right choice among these two options which I've described clearly on this post.
The two popular platforms to create a blog are:
Blogger is free platform to create a blog and easy to use for newbies.
No hosting is required. You can easily pick a theme, use a free domain (or custom) and start your blog.
The defect is that it is SEO unfriendly if you don't have professional skills. Also, you cannot remove or edit the numbers from permalink on your posts.
It is simple and easy to use. That is why most learners use Blogspot to create a blog.
WordPress is divided into two types:
Wordpress.com is the best method than Blogger because Wordpress sites are SEO optimized by default. We can edit the permalink here. There are plenty (thousands) of themes in Wordpress for our blog design and it is completely free to use. But we cannot edit our template, add plugins or upload our custom theme on it.
It is the best platform for blogging than any other. We can create hosted and non-hosted websites. It is SEO friendly as well. We can also edit the permalinks and upload our custom template. But we have to pay money for buying a domain name and hosting in order to create a site on wordpress.org .
It is your choice which one of these platforms you will choose to blog. Depending upon your ability and talent, you can always choose a best platform that fits you.
Things to remember before chapter one ends:
1. What is hosting?
Hosting is a virtual (digital) web space or hard disk that stores images, videos, links, CSS, HTML, flash, etc. uploaded in our blog.
To buy hosting means to buy a digital hard disk on internet so that the data uploaded on our blog can be stored.
In a non hosted site (also known as free website) , our files are stored on our blogging servers such as Blogspot. No need to buy web space.
In a hosted site, weblogs and files are stored in our own servers. We can use our computer hard disks or buy hosting online from a company to store entries of our blog.
2. What is "SEO Unfriendly"?
It is a term used for a website to indicate that it is not visible to search engines (Bing, Google, Yahoo).
The full form of SEO is "Search Engine Optimization".

3. What is permalink?
Permalink is URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of a site or blog post. Like:
" mayaprakash.com.np/this-is-permalink "
