HOW TO START AN ONLINE BUSINESS ~ Four-Step Strategy for a quick results!

It goes without saying that anyone with a computer, can make a lot of money,
working from home or anywhere! Just do a simple Internet search for “online business,
or “work from home business opportunity,” and you’ll be almost overwhelmed
with the search-results! 


A major fact to consider when choosing a marketing niche,
is that shopping is exclusively relaxing and therapeutic because of its
satisfaction-factor.

That’s why I choose the retail shopping niche! You can start your own business with ease. 


First, I spent one day setting everything up, 
Next, I read and learned marketing strategies.
Third step, I made connections, 
And Finally, I started seeing the cash! 


I’m retired, and work full-time. So, your success depends on You, your work ethic,
and the time you have to invest in building your business. But either way, you are
the CEO of your own business, and once you actually get started, it can only get easier,
continue to grow and get better. Right?


So, let’s get started!
STEP 1: Choose a marketing platform. I use Shopify.
This software platform has a free ‘school’, called the Shopify Academy,
that teaches you everything you need to know, from setting up your store,
to choosing products and adding copy for your ads, to marketing your business,
SEO Optimization, to networking via a community forum. But there are many such
platforms. Do your research... Etsy, Amazon, Ebay, Salesforce, the list goes on and on. 


Whatever you choose to use, be sure you are provided adequate,
regular, personal access to support & help. That will
save you both time and aggravation! 


STEP 2: Learn your marketing software.
Take a day, or 2, or even a week or 2, to just click on every, single button
in your software dashboard, or main home page.
This is essential, and will save you tons of time in future-use of the software,
when adding products, updating information, and processing orders. Basically,
getting familiar with “your office” gets you paid a lot faster in the long-run.
This is why I suggest doing this step before anything else!


STEP 3:  Set up & “stock” your store,  Add products.
Use descriptions that help potential buyers know the value of purchasing your product,
instead of buying it elsewhere. What makes your product different or better?
How will it improve or change the potential-buyers’ life?
Use enticing, exciting, easy-to-understand, most important -- accurate words! (Never use misleading or inaccurate descriptions in your ads.)


Make sure your photos are professional-looking.
The platform software should provide your best help for this step.
Shopify provides users with “Apps” that automatically connect to your store’s software,
helping you choose quality products, share with partner-sites, and
help with email-marketing and even promotion of  your products.


STEP 4: Tell the world you’re open for business! Advertise. Advertise. Advertise. Advertise. Advertise.
You get the picture!

^The important thing is to GET STARTED.
As you read and learn, begin to implement the strategies as you go.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes...that’s how to learn!
And don’t be shy about talking about your business to others.
For family and friends, you simply want them to be aware of your endeavor.

For strangers, you want to offer them assistance or help that will improve their lives
or give them something they want...health, wealth, good-feelings are usually on the top
of the list. But do your research. Search the latest and hottest trends,

and follow the “bread crumbs!”
