I’ve decided to start a series of articles describing the different Niches in Internet and Business Online.
There are many businesses online that you can start with little capital. Do your research and you will find 100’s of ideas of online businesses that you can start with very little capital.
1) Find a product
This can be a product you made or is made locally or something that you can purchase for lower than the price you can sell it for. It can be clothes, computers, software, paintings, and flowers, basically anything that can be shipped easily or freighted anywhere the buyer wants.
2) Create a website
You can purchase a website for less than $10; you then will need hosting to put your pages on line. You can purchase the hosting monthly, yearly and even two yearly. You can do both things at my favourite Hosting Company: D9 Hosting
3) Create the WebPages
You can create this yourself in MS Word for example or free web pages creators online.
You can download online templates and if you so wish you could have your website professionally created.
When creating the WebPages you want to create information that the user will like to read about your product and other information that will draw people to your website. Links to articles, newsletters and even forums will attract readers. Make them easy to read and attractive.
4) Consider which payment processor to use for your on-line sales
PayPal is widely used and known but it is not the only one. Do your research, think how you paid for your purchases online in the past.
5) Drive traffic to your website
Consider auction sites such as eBay as a method of driving traffic to your website. Social networking sites such as Facebook. Amazon is another site where you can set up a shop and by selling via its facility you are getting exposure to your business.
The above points were just a summary of the different techniques used to start trading online. I will expand on the above in future posts. The purpose of this summary was to get you thinking about the steps necessary to start your own business online.
Hasta la vista….
