Getting Your Online Business Off The Ground With A Strong Team!

Ok you’ve got a great idea for an online business; you know it will be a huge smash.  You have been working on this product for as long as you can remember.  You finally got the last detail of it worked out in your head.  So you sit down and start to put pen to paper and you realize you don’t have a clue about setting up an online presence.  You have no idea where to start.

Well don’t let that discourage you; there is an easy solution to this stumbling block.  Here is the good news; you don’t have to be an expert in everything to make this work for you.  You can use experts that specialize in what you need.  It is no different than building a house; you would use a framer, electrician, plumber… (You get the point).

Let’s look at the areas you might need help in.  Some of these will be simple enough for some to do on their own.  When you will need to decide is how much time will it take you verses how much will it cost you to get it done for you?

Buy a Domain Name – There are hundreds, maybe thousands of companies out there that you can buy a domain name from.  This is your website name.  For the most part you will want to get the .com and .net extensions for your site.  You may choose others based on what it is that you are going to be doing.  If the .com is not available then consider another domain name.  You can have a web designer help you with this if you are not sure how to do it.

Create a Website – This one is a little trickier for most.  Hiring a web designer will be the choice of most people.  Interview them before taking them on as a partner in your business.  It is critical that you realize that this person will be an important part of your success so take your time with this one.  Many hosting companies also have website builders; you may want to choose this option.  A good web designer is worth their weight in gold but you don’t need to pay them all of yours.  Some designers are charging five to fifteen thousand dollars (plus) to create a website.  There are many companies out there that are much more reasonable in their pricing so do your research.

Manage Your Website – Once the website is set up there will be regular maintenance to run it.  Keep in mind a website should not sit stagnant unless it is just a business card or you.  If you want to have good rankings with the search engines then constant updates will be needed.  Having a blog on your site is a good way to have fresh content to update the data on the site.  You may choose to do the site maintenance yourself but hiring a web master might be a wise decision for your business.

So there you have it take your idea and build a strong team to help take that idea to the next level.

Strategy Based Profits TIP: – Consider using experts in their field to help you in areas that you are not strong in.  You don’t need to go it alone.
