Website design business

Looking at how to start an online business involves some thought. First you want to look at a particular field, or Niche as we call it, which you are interested in. See whether or not there is a great deal of competition out there because this could affect your decision to get into that particular niche. Google your niche using keywords that are very relavent to your interest. Remember to use keywords that you yourself would use if you were using Google to look up areas of your niche. And keywords can also be more than one word. Even if you type 4 words into your search box, it is still called a keyword, or also known as a keyword phrase.

Another key when you are looking at how to start an online business, is to make sure that you are continually testing and retesting your website. Once you design your website (discussed later, it is easy), you cannot sit back and wait for the sales to come in. You want to test and retest the difference ways in which you have your pages and website built to make sure that you are taking advantage of the traffic coming into your website. Also, keep tabs on the keywords you are using in your web page content. If you do this, you will not be leaving money on the table. Just a note, you may want to Google “free keyword tool.” These keyword tools will help you identify the most effective keywords for your website. Google offers one at their site.

The final key when looking at how to start an online business is how you decide to market your website. The way to build natural search engine traffic is through good quality content and developing back links. Back links are links from other websites that link back to yours so that when search engine search bots are indexing web pages, they will find the links to your web site and index your pages.

Have you always wanted to know how to create your own website? Well you will may be surprised to hear that it is not very difficult. There are, however a few things you need to be aware of. Firstly, the most important part of your Online Website Business is the Website itself. Makes sense you say. You would be shocked at the number of people who don’t realize this. Most online failures are due to this lack of understanding.

Once you have settled on a niche that you want to build an online business for, then you need a couple of things

First Things To Do:

1. Get Your Domain Name

Remember that a Domain Name will not get you online or a website, but it will give your eventual site an address on the web. There are plenty to choose from. Try to find a Domain Name that closely reflects your intended business niche. They usually run about $9 a year. Godaddy is my choice, but there Are other great Domain companies out there.

2. Choose a Web Host

Also known as a hosting company is a company that connects your website to the World Wide Web. Every website has a hosting company. You DO NOT have to buy from same company you bought your domain from. You should not be expecting to pay more than $10 to $15 per month, and really I only pay $9. A hosting account is simple to set up. I prefer Hostgator personally.

3. Get a website editor

Don’t let the name scare you. Basically they all do essentially the same thing, and that is to allow you to build and design your web pages. There are a lot of great ones out there, and some at no charge and they are very easy to use.
