Are you serious about success of your online business? Do you want to know how to make REAL money on Internet? Then you need to know how to successfully start and grow your online business.
Thousands of people start an online business each year, but most of them fail. If you follow these steps you won't be one of them.
STEP 1: Do What You Love
When you do what you love, everything feels like fun. You never get tired because there's an unlimited power inside you: power of love.
Your articles, books and sales letters are full of excitement because you're talking about your passion. You enjoy every minute you spend growing your business and result is one thing: success!
If you're in business just to make money or going to sell a product just because you think it will make you a lot of money, quit right now. Move on and start doing something you do love. It's extremely important.
Do what you love and money will come!
STEP 2: Find an Easy-to-Target Market
Who do you want to sell your products to? Your target market, of course! But if you don't know where to find them, how are you going to sell to them?
Let's say I've developed a pill that cures common cold. If I take my pill to pharmaceutical companies and market it offline, I'm going to be a billionaire. But if I try to sell it online, it will be a failure.
Why? Well, let's think about it.
Where do people with colds hang out? Do they go to "Cough and Sneeze" chatrooms? Do they hang out at "You & Your Cold" forums? Do they look for "common cold pills" in search engines? No! Targeting this market online will be extremely difficult, because they can be anyone, anywhere.
However, if gardeners were my target market, it would be easy to find them online. There are many gardening forums, newsgroups, websites, chatrooms, etc.
Make sure your business has a targetable market on Internet. Search for websites, discussion boards and chatrooms where your target market hangs out. You should be able to find them easily. If you can't, you will fail.
STEP 3: Create a Product that Solves Your Prospects' Problems
Now that you know where to find your target market, it's time to find their problems. Discover what they want, then create a product that gives it to them and solves their problems.
Let's suppose say you're a writer and have decided to target college students ready to graduate. You see that one of their biggest concerns is finding a job after graduation. So you write a book full of tips and tricks to help them get job they want.
Soon you make a lot of sales, even more than you expected. That's because you've helped them get what they want.
STEP 4: Be Unique!
It's a competitive world out there. To rise above rest you need to be unique. I can't emphasize this step enough! Without a brand, without a unique product, without an offer that they can't find anywhere else, you won't make it.
