INTERNET BASED MONEY-MAKING BUSINESS

With any internet-based money-making business, there is often a sense among beginners that it is pointless to even try it, because they have no special knowledge and cannot expect to develop it in time for it to be effective.

The fact of the matter is, though, that many of the systems in place are so designed to be user-friendly that you don’t actually need that high a level of knowledge in the first place.

You just need to follow some simple instructions and you’re pretty much on your way.START A BUSINESS NOW

Adsense is a system that has grown up among people who run their own websites, and allows them to monetize their sites without really doing very much.

It is a simple matter of signing up to use Adsense on your site and allowing Google to have access to your site for the placing of ads that are relevant to your content.

Adsense will do the rest itself and give you the tools to make money from the searches and clicks of people who visit your site.

This all sounds very straightforward and there is no doubt that many people will be looking for the “catch”.

A web site is a crucial ingredient of your marketing strategy because it can widen your target market to include anyone who has access to a computer and the internet. Almost 60% of Canadians had access to the internet at home in 2003, and around 8 million had regular access to the internet from somewhere, either at home, at work or at school.

And that’s just in Canada. Ecommerce sales from Canada were $7.2 billion, and we only captured 4% of the global ecommerce market! So, how can you reach some of those internet surfers, and how can you capture some of that $7.2 billion spent in ecommerce?BUILDING RETIREMENT WEALTH

First, you build it

The first step is designing your website. If your company already has business cards and letterhead, it’s best to design your website around them. A matching corporate identity and website helps with branding.STARTING A BUSINESS

I like uncomplicated websites, with a simple layout and easy navigation. A nice, simple layout, with good graphics, balanced look and good color combinations is my #1 goal when designing a small business web site.

Remember to use graphics sparingly and to optimize them for your website because internet surfers are impatient. If your page loads too slowly, they’ll leave.

Navigation should be easy to find and to use, and it should be consistent from page to page. I’ve left more than one site frustrated because I couldn’t easily find their navigation. Continue reading “YOUR SMALL BUSINESS WEB SITE”

15 Easy Steps to Starting Your Small Business BY EVE JACKSON — 2006

When I was first starting up my business, I searched for a good article on startup, and couldn’t find any, so I decided to write this short guide.

Yeah, sure it’s easy, and of course, that title is a little tongue in cheek. It takes a lot of hard work to get a business off the ground. But, it’s worth every hour I’ve spent getting to where I am now.

When I decided to start my communication and image consulting business, I tried hard to find a good startup guide. I couldn’t find any that had all the steps. So, I decided to write one. So far, it’s mostly just the bare-bones outline (which is long enough as it is) you see in this article.

I’ll be adding to it every week or two, and writing more detailed articles on all the steps, so try to stop by and check it out from time to time. Let me know how I’m doing. Shoot off an email to me if I’ve forgotten something or you have questions.

Before you spend so much as a dollar, talk to a few experts. Go to the library or get on the internet and research, research, research. Take a little time to make sure entrepreneurship is right for you.PASSIVE AND RESIDUAL PART TIME INCOME

Make a pro and con list of business ownership, and evaluate yourself honestly. How many characteristics do you have in common with successful entrepreneurs? Is your financial position strong enough? Do you have the necessary technical and management skills?

You’re not going to be the perfect entrepreneur. Nobody is. But in order to make yourself the best entrepreneur you can be, consider ways to compensate for any weaknesses you might have.

I’m from Canada, so the government agencies I’ve mentioned in this guide are Canadian, but really, it can be used by anyone. All you have to do, if you’re from somewhere other than Canada, is find out where you need to find some of the things I’ll talk about.

Some of the steps might be slightly different, and you may not have to worry about things like GST for example, but I’m sure you’ll find this discussion helpful all the same. Continue reading “15 STEPS TO STARTING YOUR SMALL BUSINESS”
