Want to start an online business, but are not sure what to do. What would you do, sell or do that would be your customer base?
The first thing is find out what you enjoy doing, not you, the kid on the block. What’s good? Are you an expert fly fisherman who ties his own flies? Are you good with animals? Are you rebuild the bikes? What are your hobbies, interests and abilities?
Say you’re a civil war re-enactor who has done all his own equipment historically accurate. You have teamed up to other members of his group as well and everyone loves it. This is the business you should be: one who knows inside and out and most importantly, you love to do.
Your customers will be people like you who have the same interests, who enjoy the same things you do and the need to things that you can provide. Your customers are looking for the type of goods and services it can offer and the information they need to advance their interests and lives in the next level. You know what they want and need because you’re doing just that for yourself.
The next thing is to go online and see there are many other websites that are doing something similar. You will find websites on all topics of the conspiracy for adoption, as there are literally billions of web users. Do not worry too much if there are plenty of sites for the topic. The thing is that if there are thousands of sites ‘Civil War’ will not have as many things as “military uniform accessories of 1800 playing” or “hand-made buttons for the uniforms of the Union” or whatever your product may be. You must reduce your niche so your customer can be found more easily.
Once your site is configured and ready to go, you have to use things like social media websites to let people know where you are. Make business cards and leave them wherever you go. Find local Web sites of recreation groups and clubs and participate in their forums. Call your webmaster and ask if they would do a review of your website and products. Publish articles about your services to the various e-zines on the web. You can even have a friend help you make a video and send it to YouTube, showing how to create something unique from your website or demonstrate a skill, like fire from her period.
The most important thing to remember about doing business on the web is that no matter what you do, make sure it is something you enjoy doing. No matter what, there will be others that I like. These are your customers and stakeholders. These are people who will choose their products and give their opinion, allowing your business to be even better. And he will have acquired a business that I love you.
