7 Steps To Starting a Small Business Online ๐Ÿ“Š

There is a proven sequence of steps you can follow to guarantee your success when you're starting a small business online. There are hundreds of people who start and grow successful businesses by doing the following:

1: Fill A Need
Most people who are just starting out make the mistake of looking for a product 1st& a market second.

To boost your chances of success, start with a market. Trick is to find a group of people who are searching for a solution to a problem, but not finding results.
2. Write Copy That Sells
Throughout your copy, you need to focus on how your product or service is uniquely able to solve people's problems or make their lives better. Think like a customer and ask "What's in it for me?"
3: Design& Build Your Website.
Once you've got your market& product, and you've nailed down your selling process, now you're ready for your web design. Remember to keep it simple. You have fewer than 5 secs to grab someone's attention -- otherwise, they're gone, never to be seen.
4: Use Search Engines To Drive Targeted Buyers To Your Site.
Pay-per-click advertising is the easiest way to get traffic to a brand-new site. It has two advantages over waiting for the traffic to come to you organically. First, PPC ads show up on the search pages immediately, and
second, PPC ads allow you to test different keywords, as well as headlines, prices, and selling approaches. Not only do you get immediate traffic, but you can also use PPC ads to discover your best, highest-converting keywords. Then you can distribute the keywords...
throughout your site in your copy which will help your rankings in the organic search results.
5: Establish An Expert Reputation For Yourself.
People use the internet to find information. Provide that information for free to other sites& you'll see more traffic& better search engine rankings. The secret is 2 always include a link 2 your site with each tidbit of information
6: Use the power of email marketing to turn visitors into buyers.
When you build an opt-in list, you're creating one of the most valuable assets of your online business. Your customers and subscribers have given you permission to send them an email. That means ...
anyone who visits your site and opts in to your list is a very hot lead. And there's no better tool than email for following up with those leads.
7: Increase your income through back-end sales and upselling.
One of the most important internet marketing strategies is to develop every customer's lifetime value. At least 36 percent of people who have purchased from you once will buy from you again if you follow up with them.
Closing that first sale is by far the most difficult part -- not to mention the most expensive. So use back-end selling and upselling to get them to buy again.
If you're just starting a small business online, stick to this sequence. If you've been online awhile, do a quick review and see if there's a step you're neglecting, or never got around to doing in the first place. You can't go wrong with the basics.

1. Have a solid business plan

Planning plays a crucial role in any business's success. A business plan is a good place to start โ€“ defining your skills and weaknesses, what you offer, how itโ€™s unique, and how you ...
plan on growing your offering. Whatโ€™s more, try to prepare yourself mentally& practically for anything that could go wrong and how you would deal with it. For example, what happens if you get injured? What if clients pay you a month late? What if a weather disaster affects you?
2. Prepare for financial challenges

Most small businesses say that cash flow is by far their biggest challenge. Deal with cash flow blows by saving for a monthโ€™s worth of expenses or by getting creative with how you lower your overheads.
