Where Do I Start With My Online Business?
There are a few essential steps and they are easy to do but they need to be done.
The first step is to decide what it is you are going to sell.
You need to find a product that has a market.
There is no point trying to sell ice to Eskimos.
You can find popular subjects on Google.
You can find popular items on Clickbank, EBay or Amazon.
If you go to your newsagents or bookstores, you can find many popular interest categories.
When you find a popular topic that interests you, check it for popularity with affiliates.
If it is popular, you have a good chance of finding a market.
The next step is to do your keyword research.
This is important because the sales page and your web page will be set up based around your keywords.
Once you have a good list of keywords you need to search out a list of affiliate programs related to your keywords.
You will not be just selling one item so you need to know you have many things you can sell.
You are planning for the future of your whole business, not just a single website.
It is also a good idea to get into the head of your potential customers.
To whom are you selling? Why do they need your product? What benefit has it for them? How old are they? How much money do they earn? Find your target audience because you need to develop your business around their needs.
I find it helpful to build a profile on the average customer.
List all the details you can about all their likes, dislikes, habits and beliefs.
You might as well get to know them because you will be writing to them as friends.
