How To Start An Online Business in 3 Easy Steps
It starts with an idea. Then it’s usually followed a few returns to the drawing board, many ups and downs on the entrepreneurial emotional roller-coaster. Until finally, you find yourself at the airport checking your email and seeing new orders for your products and services come through. That’s when you know you’re an online business owner.
So what are the steps necessary to getting your new online business off the ground?
- One of the first steps for how to start an online business is really to do a little research about the market for the business you want to start. That means finding an intersection of what you’re good at, and what the market is willing to buy. So if you enjoy eating cake, you might find it hard to be paid for that skill. On the other hand, if you have specific knowledge or an ability that people need help with, you’ve got a viable idea.
- Next you’ll want to establish a home base on the web. That means getting a website up and running. Here’s an article on choosing your new business’ name, because it might stump you more than you think it will. Once you have your name, you’ll want to get your site up and running. I have a fully detailed how-to training for that, and you’ll find the info on how to get it below.
- Once you have your site up, it’s time to hang your shingle. Ask people to hire you. That means putting up a “work with me” page that tells people how they can hire you.
Obviously, starting a new business is a bit more involved than my breakdown above. But those are the building blocks.
