Welcome to this weeks issue. Last week, we covered the fundamentals of internet business and thank God you know them now.
Now that you know the basics of Internet business, I am ready to teach you simple basics of starting your very own online business! So let’s get started:Setting your online business goals: The process of setting goals and objectives and then designing strategies for
attaining them is essential when starting an Internet Business. So, you end up with what is called a business plan.
To set specific goals for your new business, first ask yourself these question:
Why do I want to start an Internet Business? We already covered this in the early previous series, which is why you’re reading on!
Okay, next question:
What product or service can I offer to the people on the Internet?
Do I have a product or service that people are looking for on the Internet?
To save you some research work, I’ve included here the list of Top 15 Best-selling items
categories on the Internet below:
2. Toys and Video Games
4. Computer Hardware
5. VCDs / DVDs
7. Greeting Cards
8. Home Furnishing
13. Real Estate
14. Online Trading
When identifying a need, doing market research is part of your homework. One of your first steps should be to find out what it means to do business online and to determine the best ways for you to fit into the exploding field of e-commerce (electronic commerce). The more information you have on the following aspects of the Internet, the more likely you are to succeed in doing business online:
Competition: Familiarize yourself with other existing Internet Businesses that are already doing what you want to do.
Customers: Research the various kinds of customers who shop online and who might visit your site.
Environment: Explore the special language and style of online communication – in other words, know the culture of the Internet. If you are not yet familiar with the culture of the Internet, then the best way to learn is to subscribe to e-zines (electronic magazines) and newsletters for your reading.
Write all your ideas down on a piece of paper. Ask yourself, “What do I have that people are looking for on the Internet?” Take your time. This is not supposed to be an overnight activity. So, don’t be surprised if you take days. Taking your time and doing a thorough market research on the Internet beats jumping onto an opportunity at first sight.
What if you don’t have any products to sell?
I would like to take this chance to get a HUGE MYTH out of the way. If you think you NEED to have a product to sell to make money – then you’re dead wrong, really.
You’ll be glad that you’re wrong after I tell you this. You still CAN make money without having to create your own product. And there are several instances you DON’T NEED to HAVE a product to sell at all in order to make money!
Quite simply, you can either be a referral to earn a commission or sell advertising spaces on your website or newsletter. That, my friend, is just a speck of a dust. There are still many other ways you can make money on the Internet WITHOUT having to have your own product to sell.
Furthermore, you can either:
Buy Resell Rights to someone else’s product and start selling it on the internet. All you would need to do is buy resell rights to an info product, upload it to the internet and drive traffic to it via Google Adwords…and
there’s your 1 hour online business.
You could also…
Sign up as an affiliate and promote someone else’s product (this is even easier than the first business). All you’d need to do is sign up to an affiliate program and drive traffic to your affiliate link…Again, you can use Google
Adwords to drive traffic to the link. This is good news to those who are already sweating over the thought that of
needing to create or have their own product to sell to make money! However, the 10 Step approach to setting up your own Internet Business presented in this newsletter gears more towards “selling products or services” Internet Business Models.
Picking an online business model
Already decided what you have in store for your customers? Good!
The next thing to do on the list is to choose the right Internet Business Model.
Now this is crucial to your Internet Business success. The Internet Business Model has to be right for the type of product or service you’re offering to your customers. When choosing the right Internet Business Model, you will want to take the following factors into consideration:
•Profit Margin – the higher the profit margin, the better.
•Delivery – can be easily delivered to your customers via a system.
•Shipping Cost – as low as possible or even none.
•Marketing – different Internet Business Models have different marketing. Choose the model that has the best marketing strategy for your product or services.
