Business Start Up Ideas – Do it Right the First Time
Business start up ideas that you can do online can be a number of things. You can be a writer, a freelance entrepreneur, designer, artist, eBay power seller, blogger, programmer, SEO specialist, webmaster, virtual assistant, etc. But there are only a few few who can really say that they're calling a reasonable amount of income doing it full time.
The rest, we say are just running around in circles trying to find that magic woman and the next big thing that will catapult them to super star status. If you're one of those, I'd like to share a few personal tips that can take you out of the rut.
Entrepreneur home businesses have flourished these past couple of years due to the fact that it is very easy to set up one in your own home or garage. All you need is a pc or mac, an internet connection, a nominal startup capital, purchase a few e-books or CDs that teach you about internet marketing and you're good to go.
However, not all information you get is exactly accurate. Doing it right the first time can greatly influence your chances for success or failure. So before embarking on that dream online job journey, here are some factors you might need to consider before plunging in head on.
First, know your market and competition. Find the right keyword (s) to use in targeting your niche market (a hungry crowd) for your product or service. Also make sure that there only a few competitors do the same.
If you do this right, you can then proceed to the next factor; otherwise you'll end up wondering why you're not making anything at all. There are several places you can do keyword research online but try starting with Google's AdWord external keyword tool.
Second is Traffic. After choosing the right keywords to use, sending traffic to your site would be your next objective. You can beg, borrow or pay for traffic.
You can beg other high ranking sites in your niche and ask to post an original article that you made and have it published to their site with a link back to yours. Just ask the site owner nicely and have an original and worthy article ready.
Use Web 2.0 like Squidoo or HubPages to help you borrow quality back links to your site like. And to the more tech savvy, use PPC (pay per click) to send traffic to your site. While we're on the subject of traffic, learning and applying SEO to your site can greatly enhance organic search from Google.
Last is conversion. What's the use of finding a niche market, sending traffic but not getting enough conversion that translates into profit? Learn to use the right copy that will lead your visitors to click on your product or service. This is your last chance to make a difference between getting a sale or not. It's best to know a thing or two about writing good copy.
Profitable ideas that are close to your passion are just the essentials of starting a business online. Executing the right strategies the first time when implementing your ideas into profit can spell the difference between success and failure.
