Everything You Need to Start An Online Business

Here at the Internet Business School, we’re always looking for new ways to assist inspired entrepreneurs to start an online business. That’s why we create courses and tutorials to make every stage of creating an online business as easy as possible. We’ve helped hundreds of entrepreneurs discover there is nothing like the freedom of owning your own business. Running an online business gives you the freedom and flexibility to work when and where you want to, allowing you to make money around your personal lifestyle. Once you setup your online payment systems you can make money even whilst you sleep. So what do you need to start up a business? Well let’s start with the basics.

 

It goes without saying that you need a product. Once that product is selected, you should create a framework around it from which to structure your business. This includes registering the right URL for your business’ website. 

To create content for your website, you’ll need to research what keywords and phrases will be best for advertising your product. This can be done through simply brainstorming what you think people will search for when they want your product. 

Or you could use Google Adwords to see the most popular searches related to what you want to sell.  

You’ll need to install WordPress to create your website and decide how you’re going to host it. Without a fully functioning website, you’re not going to get anywhere online!

On WordPress you’ll need to select a theme and install all the plugins you’ll need for all the functionality on your website. From SEO plugins to get your site higher up on relevant Google search rankings, to linking your website to any social media you create for your business, you need to set your site up with everything your business needs. You’ll need to create the all important sales page and payment gateway to start selling. A contact form to capture customer details is essential. Make sure to test all the site’s functionality.

Social media is essential for promoting businesses in this fast digital age. If you want your customers to see your business, it needs to be on social media. Create your business a Facebook page, Twitter account, even perhaps a Youtube and Instagram account so you can get creative with your advertising. Millions of people use social media every day. Promoting your business on social media enables you to reach this vast and ever-growing audience.

Once you’ve set everything up, you need your business to grow for increasing successes. Attract new customers and keep your existing customers returning by offering free downloads and following up purchases with emails. Using opt-in forms will help you capture customer information which you can then use to increase your sales further. After collecting enough customer data you can monetise it, sending out sales emails, producing sales funnels and bringing back customers again and again.

Does this seem like a lot of work? Worried that you might be overwhelmed? There’s no need to worry! You can complete all this in one day with our Rapid Implementation  Workshops. Also called “Go Live in a Day” you can arrive at this workshop and leave with a fully assembled business. 

Our expert coaches will guide you from start to finish, making this the easiest way to start your own business. This is an opportunity you’ll rarely find anywhere else. Most entrepreneurs have to go it alone, learning on the job and perhaps wasting precious time and money doing so. However you can start a cut above the rest with this workshop.
