Build my online business

Whether you are wanting to know how to build a successful online business or looking for ideas to take your current business to the next level, these five steps will provide you with the core elements every online business must have in place to be genuinely successful. See, the secret to online business success is more than just the tools you use, the platform you put your content on, how often you publish content, and how much and where you place your digital ad spend.

No tool or tactic will matter if each of the following foundational steps in this blueprint are not firing on all cylinders. Once you decide that creating an online business is the right move for you, you can join the successful online entrepreneurs who have implemented these five steps.

If you'd prefer to listen to this content from the video above, play it or download it from the podcast episode below. This is where you have to start before you get all wound up on a bunch of ideas and thoughts in your head.

Maybe you want to fire your boss, retire your alarm clock, spend more time with the kids, make as much as you can and as much as you want to…. Travel in style and not as a backpacker bouncing from one cheap hostel to another. Stay in four- or five-star resorts in Thailand, Bali, New Zealand. Or maybe all you want is to actually enjoy life and experience it instead of living from paycheck to paycheck, spinning your wheels too fast to the point of exhaustion and desperation.

So answer this most important question before you proceed to think about starting an online business because you need this WHY to motivate you and keep you going when times get tough. So you start with a goal. What is it that you want to achieve? List your goals down on a piece of paper and put it up somewhere that you can see easily each day.

Stick it on your wall or your bedside table or your home office desk. Step number one is determining what service you will provide and who you will be providing it to. The two factors go hand in hand. If you already know which service you want to provide or what your business will be, you can skim a little here. If not, answering the following questions will help you decide on a healthy business you can get behind and grow.

Were you once a professional lawyer? Have you been playing video games for the past ten years? Or maybe repairing small engines?

Or building go-karts? Your past experiences make you more qualified than the average person in that particular field and therefore more capable of providing service to your audience. Figure out what specialized knowledge you possess, and then decide if you can use that experience to serve others. When building a successful online business, consistency and a pursuit to be the best is imperative. When you create a website, authority site, membership program, or a profitable affiliate marketing site , you are essentially telling a group of people that you possess a significant amount of knowledge in that niche and that you are going to share that experience with them.

One of your goals is to save your audience time and energy by providing them with the information they truly desire. To determine what your successful online business will be, you need to answer one or both of these questions first:. What am I experienced in that I want to teach? OR What am I most excited about to learn and share with others? Answering the above questions will quickly help you figure out who your audience is.

Choosing your audience is crucial since everything you do for your online business will revolve around that audience. Who are you trying to reach when you write an ad? Who are you talking to when you make a video, blog post, or email? Your end goal is to attract the right kind of people.

Deciding which medium you will use to communicate with your audience is the second step to build a successful online business. There are three primary methods used to communicate with your audience online: videos, the written word, and podcasting. Do you communicate most freely in a conversation? Do you thrive on a stage or in front of an audience?

Or do you spill out content fluidly in a journal? Trial and error will reveal to you reasonably quickly which method is right for you. Test what works for you and what does not. Think back to high school or middle school. How did you naturally communicate with others before you grew up and peers and adulthood stifled your natural self? And then you have the whole social media world available to you as well. The demographics listed in this link will help you decide the best venue to use to reach your particular audience.

After trying and failing at my blog for six years, I found that videos on YouTube were where I needed to be. Then about ten months after that, I branched out and added my blog back into my strategy along with my YouTube postings. But I would have crashed hard again in a different way if I had tried to be on all of those platforms from day one.

Creating content is the most difficult part to start, the most vulnerable, and will consume the majority of your time, but… Building a successful business online cannot be done without creating content. Do you get into the flow of content creation better first thing in the morning, or do you work best in the evening before bed?

Experiment with different days and different times of the day. Also, experiment with batching out content — taking half a day or more to create multiple pieces of content instead of working for one hour or so each day. Test, adapt, analyze and continue to try different ways until you find what time is the absolute best for you. Resistance is the internal and external factors that inhibit us from accomplishing a task, goal or a dream.

Internal resistance comes from battles within your head, procrastination, putting time into what feels like work but is not actually what you get paid for, etc. An easy, helpful place to start defeating external resistance to your content creation strategy is unsubscribing from email lists, unfollowing a bunch of social media pages and channels, and turning off the electronic income reducer also known as TV.

No, in all sincerity, if my YouTube channel or my emails distract you from creating your content, cut me off too! You have to take control and eliminate all distractions keeping you away from your goals. Eliminate distractions by staying out of your email inbox and off of social media when you have allocated that time for creating content.

Email and social media are great communication tools that you will probably utilize in your own business, but they also sneakily place priorities on you that you need to avoid if you are committed to producing content.

Another external resistance you need to be aware of is the urgent matters of others inhibiting your priority of creating content. You may need to communicate with the people you live with and the people at your job or set up boundaries in your business organization.

Express your content creation schedule and help them help you by not allowing them to make what is urgent to them become urgent to you during that time.

A considerable part of the resistance and willpower battle is knowing what your number one priority is and making sure you accomplish that priority.

When you have this willpower and resistance battle won, there is no limit to what you can accomplish. The most effective way to quick start triumph in the willpower and resistance battle is to commit to a day challenge.

A day challenge, or something similar, will turn you from content creator amateur to content creator pro. You will develop the discipline and habit of creating content consistently, and your content creation skills will dramatically improve. Another benefit we are finding in our day challenge group is it is showing a lot of participants that they do not like what niche they have chosen to serve.

Do what you need to do to clear space in your head, your heart, and your hands for meaningful and fresh content creation. The second is the paid way through ads. Explaining the differences in these two methods was the first piece that I shared at the Abundant Circle Mastermind. It might help to explain more clearly the two available paths for you. My preferred method is the long-term game of being discovered by search engine optimization and social touch points.

This technique creates higher value long-term customers. But it is not a fast way to make money from online business opportunities from home. Conversely, you can make money very quickly by building a sales funnel and selling a product, but you have to keep spending money and maintaining that funnel, which is more hands on. Additionally, with this method, you have to keep selling your email list over and over again because the people on your list were not actively looking for you when you met.

You interrupted them with an ad to draw them in, and you need to interrupt them again to get them to buy from you. Which way is better for you? Do you need money quickly or are you trying to grow into a retirement lifestyle? These are the two paths you can create content for, and both are extremely powerful.

You just have to decide which content path is best for you. A concern many have in becoming a content creator is that they think their content must be perfect before they can start. Buying into this wrong thinking will stifle the opportunity you have to create a successful online business. You too will get better and better as you produce content.

Becoming consistent is phase one. Optimizing your content is for a later day. Your first article on your blog will likely not be a star post. Your first podcast or video will not be even close to perfect. Once you learn the platform you are most comfortable with, work within that platform until it is second nature.

Only later start to improve and optimize it for better and better results, and then you will be on your way to a successful business online. Soon you will find yourself 16 months down the road going full bore with an inbound marketing strategy. My st video, what this post started from, is one of the ones that I am most excited about to date. How good will your st podcast be? A little better than your first?

Without a doubt!

So use back-end selling and upselling to get them to buy here. Start Your Own Etsy Business. Shipping restrictions, zoning laws, and trademark build. More than online other effort. First, PPC ads show up on the search pages immediately, and second, PPC ads allow you to test different keywords, as well business headlines, prices and selling approaches.
