Easy Steps To Starting A Small Business On The Internet

Jul 31, 2008
There are several steps to starting a small business but the hardest one is simply starting. Once you are started you will gain momentum and you are well on your way. Advantages of building a business online include you can quite easily sell someone else's product, service or business opportunity and do extremely well.

If you promote a product or service that you love and are passionate about you will enjoy much long term success. If you follow the links at the end of this article you will be taken to my website where you will find many ideas for online businesses but make sure it is something you are passionate about.

Next, you will need to register a domain name. Godaddy.com is as good as any. Try to choose a dot com as your customers are more familiar with them. Try to have the name of your business in your domain if possible. For example if you want to sell mason jar candles then try to find a domain name like.masonjarcandles.com or ilikemasonjarcandles.com or masonjarcandlesforyou.com. You may have to enter different domain names until you find one you like that is not taken.

Next you need to create a website. Like me you may have never created a website so naturally you do not think you can. Well you can quite easily with the right tools. At the bottom of this page are some links to my website that I created for free in a few hours using a program by Yahoo. You can access it at web.com. Creating a website is key for online success. I tried to avoid doing it but now that it is done I wish I had done it at the very beginning.

You are well on your way to becoming the next internet millionaire so what is missing? Ah...traffic. You could have the cure for cancer and it would do you little good if you do not have people coming to your website to find out about it. The best way to generate traffic that I am aware of is writing articles. It is free and they will pay dividends for years to come as they move through cyber space. You can also use these same articles to add pages to your website which is very important as your customers like content.

The next step is to get your articles out on the internet and the best way to do this is to use a service I have found called Unique Article Wizard. You can find their link on my website. I cannot say enough about how this will drive traffic to your site. With this service you can submit unlimited articles each month to up to 9,000 different article directories and websites. Let me just tell you that this will create thousands of one way links back to your website which will quickly move you up in the search engine rankings.

The last step I cannot stress enough is to write and submit an article two or three time a week. If you are consistent you will have long term success.

In conclusion, the steps to starting a small business online are to first decide what you are going to do. Next you need to register a domain name and then build a website. After this you need to market this website and the best way I know of is through writing articles and then submitting them using Unique Article Wizard.
