top tips for starting a businessI am well aware of how much goes into starting a business today. However, you can make it easier on yourself if you utilize the Internet in as many ways as possible. In this article let’s take a look at my 4 top tips for starting a business online.

1. Product is important. Many people struggle with what product they want to sell in their business.

This is why so many Internet marketers today have turned to niche marketing. Included in that is using affiliate products in as many ways as possible.

When you do this you are able to focus on a specific niche as opposed to a broad theme. One idea is to find something you’re interested in or maybe a product that you currently have purchased, that you could base your business around. 

You are obviously looking for something you can make money with. If you do go into affiliate marketing look for products that pay high commissions so you are well compensated for your time.

2. Spend time on Internet marketing education. It is important that you learn how to market an internet business.  The time you spend initially can save you a lot of time in the future. It can also save you a lot of money that you may waste trying things that will not work.

Discussion forums such as the Warrior Forum are a good place to learn about Internet marketing. Paid membership site such as the Affiliate Power Group are a good way to get personal attention from full-time Internet marketers.

Of course you can purchase a training course and there are plenty of those available online. You might even want to hire a business coach and view the money it will cost you as though you were going to college to become educated on Internet marketing.

3. Get your own domain name and host your own site. This is an important point when you are first starting out because you can grow your business however you want in the future.

Control is an important issue for building a successful business online. If you use replicated websites that come from certain business models such as affiliate marketing or network marketing, you are not able to customize those sites.

4. 90/10 rule. 90% of your time should be spent on promoting your new business. 10% of your time should be spent on making changes to your site, finding new products to sell, and so on.

If you are not spending the majority of your time getting website traffic you stand a good chance of failing in your business. Of all the top tips for starting a business online this may be the most important.
