Each and every one of us that start off trying to build an online business, look for the knowledge and any information we can muster to learn how to run a successful online business.
In my experience, there are 10 points to consider to run a successful online business.
Basically, any Niche you choose can be turned into a profitable Online Business but coming up with a topic that you have a passion for will make your early life as an entrepreneur a lot easier.
Choosing a Domain Name becomes a little bit tricky if you are going for a .com extension. Most of the best names will already be taken. So think about a Brandable Domain Name, one that tells the world what you do. For example…makemoneywithgordon .com. Just make sure it is relevant to your niche and makes sense.
You need a Hosting Company to look after all your files and media on your website. You need a Hosting Company that delivers your site to surfers fast and most importantly, you need a Hosting Company that gives you instant 24/7 support in the event that something goes wrong.
First impressions count, so choosing a website builder that incorporates a host of attractive free “Themes” is going to be an enormous bonus.
Keywords are the essential element for getting your articles found within the search engines. Seeking out low competition keywords will enhance your chances of ranking well in SERPS and converting surfers into leads and ultimately into $$$
I really can’t impress upon you enough how important Writing Original Quality Content is. This is going to be the key element of your success within the online world. All search engines and Google, in particular, are in the business of providing the most up to date information that a surfer wants. So you have to come up with original content that is readable and interesting.
Adding Imagery And Graphics For A Better UX
A page full of text and little white space is boring and will get skimmed over quicker than a bat out of hell. Remember, you are writing for your fellow human beings not the search engine robots. Yes, word count should be taken into consideration but so should the user experience.
Your content should be broken up with 2/3 relevant images and white space. A splash of colour is attractive.
Search engine optimisation is so important in getting your work ranked. Google has over 200 algorithms in it’s ranking criteria and, to be honest nobody, apart from Google themselves know every single one.
But there are some important ones that can’t be ignored. Which include Alt Text on all images, the use of H1, H2, H3 etc Title Headings, Keyword placement, Meta Title and Meta Description, Website trust.
The biggest asset for getting online presence apart from original quality content is Social Media.
Social media will not only get your message out there it will bring in traffic to your site and increase ranking, which is everyone’s goal.
With the ever increasing scamming and phishing antics going on, Google has set security as a priority ranking algorithm.
Making your site secure with SSL certification is going to be a must.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypts all personal details from your customers including most importantly their financial details.
In 2017 any site that isn’t seen as secure will be downgraded in the ranking ladder.
You can find information on any one of these points throughout the internet.
Searching for the different headings and then seeking out the best sites to visit in order to get the information you want.
Most times having to pay for that privilege and that is fine. No problem, although I am not sure why you would want to spend an enormous amount of your precious time in trying to find all that spiel.
Maybe you could tell me in the comment box below.
