Building wealth in a new green industry
With the emergence of the medical marijuana industry dominated by big business and controlled by government legislature, how can a budding cannapreneur get in on a piece of the action?
I'm sure a lot of folks are asking that same question.
Simple solution: build an online presence - now.
Sounds simple, right? But how? Not everybody knows how to build a website, let alone a high ranking SEO website. Even professional web developers are constantly learning as the Internet landscape evolves.
Internet properties (domains) are a hot commodity, especially in the medical marijuana industry where exponential growth is anticipated and growth opportunities abound.
First step: find a great domain. After all, it all starts with a good name.
With the virtual landscape ever evolving at mind-blowing speed, coupled with an industry that is about to explode - having the ability to keep pace is critical. Anyone can do it, and if we’re going to grow with an industry, cannapreneurs need to be equipped with information, product and support.
Fortunately, there’s Wealthy Affiliate:
