The online business community is the fastest growing market in the entire world. The number of websites out there is more than 70 million and every day more are created. Never in our history has it been so easy for an entrepreneur to open a business and make money.

Many of us have been raised in an environment where small business owners work day and night to keep their business afloat. Competing with big companies was simply not possible. Those first couple of years were tough for an entrepreneur and there certainly wasn’t any expectation of taking home a paycheck. There was a great deal of worry and stress, and entrepreneurs were tired and overworked but that was the cost of opening your own business.

Then came along the modern online business. Now you can work smarter not harder. Almost all tasks can be automated, and as long as you have an internet connection you have endless flexibility. That’s not to say successful online business entrepreneurs don’t work hard too, but today what used to take hours to accomplish can be done in minutes. Let’s look at how you can make your online business less time consuming and less stressful.

§  First you’ll need to decide on the keywords you are going to target

§  Then try to find a domain name that includes one or more of those keywords. Domains cost as little as $8 and need to be renewed annually.

§  Once you’ve purchased your domain you need to build your website. This in itself can send a person running – after all HTML, PHP, CSS… well it all sounds a little too difficult to learn. You do not need to know how to program. There are all kinds of what- you- see –is- what- you- get web building software programs, or you can hire a web site designer for a very affordable price. Content Management Software like WordPress allows you to build webpages from easily customizable themes.

§  Now it’s time to start adding content to your site, and products. Keep your pages easy to read, make the navigation on your site easy to follow, and when describing products be sure to include product pictures and details such as size, material, weight, etc.

§  You will need to search engine optimize your site. Online business success is often measured by how you place in the search engines. After all if you aren’t in the first few pages it’s a bit like having your traditional business in a rural area – few people will come find you. That’s the same with the search engines.  Put some time and effort into coming up higher on searches and it will be well worth the effort.
