Set Up Your Internet Business – And Make It Look Right

Tags: , , , , ,

You may think setting up an internet business is easy – and you are not wrong. It certainly beats having to rent and decorate physical space for doing business. But looks and functionality matter as much to a business with only a presence on the web – if not even more so.

You must have a website with great usability. This means that your customers should be able to find what they are looking for in a matter of seconds preferably. At least, they should be able to find the right product-category in that amount of time. You will probably have to restrain your design gene a bit (if you have one of those), so as not to drown the POTENTIAL customer in fancy animations, crazy fonts or otherwise dominating visual effects. If you are actually selling your services as a web-developer it might make sense to set up a site like that, but for everyone else – it won’t. Did you notice how I capitalized the word “potential” before? This is very important! You do not have a successful internet business – unless you have customers who click “buy” and actually complete the transaction. This means having to balance a classy look and feel of your website with absolutely unambiguous navigation toward the product you are looking to sell. This is not easy, but as a rule of thumb you should keep it simple.

If you manage to set up a nice, uncluttered site or webshop, your next job is to get some traffic to your site – but that is for another article. Just remember that there is really no cheaper way of getting started with your own business empire – than through internet business. Becoming financially independent from the comfort of your home sounds alright, doesn’t it? Thought so!

Internet Business Tactics โ€“ Master Your Time

Tags: , , ,

We all have the same amount of time but why are some people able to get way more done than others? There are a couple of things that you must master if you want to have a successful internet business and one of those things is your time. For most people, running an online business is something they need to do on top of having a full-time job. This will, of course, limit the amount of time you have. In order to make your online business work then, you will need to do a few things to make the best use of your limited amount of time.

The first thing you will need to do is to figure out what the most important tasks are when it comes to your online business. If the answer is to write articles, then you will need to spend almost all of your free time to write articles. This means that no time should be spend checking stats, earnings, emails, etc. Many people will claim to have worked for hours and hours each day but when you look at what they accomplished, you will find that they spent all of their time on the secondary things.

Once you figure out the main things that you need to spend most of your time on, you will want to create a schedule and stick to it. Let’s say you work from 9-5. You will want to find a chunk of time where you can be free to work such as from 8-10pm for example. During this time, you must force yourself to do nothing but the most important task for your business. Again, if it’s writing articles, then that is what you must do between those hours, no exceptions.

In order to create the type of residual income that you want, you will need to discipline yourself to spend the majority of your time on the few things that are the most critical to your business. From there, you need to allocate your time so that you make the most out of the limited amount of time that you have.
