With improving technology, including excellent online tools and lower costs, there has never been an easier time to put your business online.1. Get to Know Online BusinessFirstly, you have to be honest with yourself and recognise your experience with the internet. It is nothing to worry about as it is easy to learn, no matter what your education, age, background or technical ability. Take time to becoming familiar with the culture of the internet by subscribing to newsletters or blogs that explain in simple terms the various aspects that your online business will need.2. Register Your DomainYour domain is your website address on the Internet. It is your piece of intellectual property, just like a patent or a trademark. There are numerous registrars (companies that register domains) online where you can purchase your domain.3. Find a Website HostA website host is the company that essentially will “rent” you space on their servers to host your website on the internet. These companies usually offer domain registration and it’s often easier to have both with the same company but do check the pricing options first.4. Build Your WebsiteThis isn’t as difficult as it sounds. The cost of setting up website when you start an online business can vary considerably. There are now many programmes available that make it much easier for new online business owners to create their own web pages. If you do not want to build your own website, you can get a web designer to do it for you. Remember keep the design clean and simple and make it easy for visitors to find your products and services. You should update your website’s content frequently and have a contact form so that people can get in touch with you.5. Find a Product to SellThe easiest way to start an online business is with affiliate marketing. This is where you promote a vendor’s products on the internet and, when somebody buys the product, you get paid a commission by the vendor. You do not have to worry about creating products, holding any stock, dealing with the fulfilment or any client issues. There are so many diverse products which are easily available to promote. You can find a huge choice at Clickbank, a well-known online marketplace6. Get An AutoresponderYour autoresponder is the ‘salesman’ who works tirelessly for your online business every day of the year. Your website should have an opt-in form on the home page where you offer something of value for free, such as a report or video. To receive this free item, a website visitors has to insert their name and email on the opt-in form. Once you have the email address, your autoresponder will automatically supply new information that you have pre-written about your products and services via email. Remember, statistically, a prospect needs to see or hear your marketing message at least seven times before they take action and buy from you.7. Build Website TrafficEven if your website has the most cutting edge design and amazing products or services to sell, your online business will not succeed if nobody knows that it is out there. When you start an online business getting both paid and free visitors to your website is a skill set that you need to understand and learn. Keep in mind that no visitors means no business.8. Continuous EducationAs you can see from points above, there are several steps on how to start an online business and you can become stuck with certain elements. Continuous education and training allows you to learn as you earn and draw on the experience of others while you build your online business. And, even after a few weeks, you will be in a position to start helping other new people who have recently entered the existing world of online business.
Did you know that there lies a HUGE profit source in your internet business that you may have NEVER thought of before? It’s true. I even still wonder why I’m not using this strategy I my online business today. Now while I’m all busy with consulting and managing my paid newsletter, I still would love the chance to implement this one aspect of internet marketing into my business. It’s so profitable.So what strategy am I talking about? I’m talking about the “seminar” business. You can easily charge $1000 for a seminar, and host a 100 person seminar to attend. Do you see the math on this? If you were charging $1000 for a 100 person seminar, and it jut so happened that you were able to fill all the seats for a seminar… you would earn $100,000 from the seminar alone.This means that if you did nothing at all everyday in your online business (well maybe some light advertising)… you could earn $100,000 a year from using this technique alone. But to make your seminar a success, you have to plan ahead about where you want to host your seminar, and how you want to host it.Will you serve food and drinks at your seminar? Will you provide them with notebooks for them to take notes? Do you have a venue in mind that you will want to use? Will it be a 2-day seminar or a 3-day seminar? Figure out all of these things plus the cost of putting it all together. Once you’ve figured all of these things out, you will want to put your plan into action.Now you will have to plan and promote your seminar months in advance. You should mention it in your products, on your website, in the signature of your email newsletter, as Google AdWords ads, and other ways to promote your seminar on the internet. You can literally make this into a huge business that you conduct year after year after year.Another thing that you will want to do is to turn your seminar into a future product that you can sell – for people who didn’t attend. You could record your seminar on DVD’s, record the audios for it on CD’s, and even contain a manuscript of the entire seminar for those who would rather read the material. All of these things can be combined to become a product that you can sell for around $300 or $400.The seminar business is a big deal, and you will want to make sure that you include it as part of your internet marketing campaign. It’s just another way to make a ton of money in your business if you want to sit back and take things easier someday. It’s a great profit source, and it’s something that you should seriously consider – because you can make a lot of money from it… all within just 3 days.Like I said, promote your seminar everywhere. Promote it to your customers, past clients, prospects in your lead funnel, and all over your website. Plus when they meet you in person, they will be more than happy to see you finally, and to connect with you on a personal level. This is what a single seminar can do, and you will want to do some back of the room selling also.Use these seminar marketing tips and take them to earn more money in your online business today.Good luck with using seminars in your online business today.
