by Guest Author on · 0 comments

Online business has incredibly become a mainstream nowadays. The fact that you can have your own business in a step by step process, who wouldn’t want to have one? Besides, it is cheap and every single one of us want to have a business of his/her own. Instead of spending long hours of office work with only two days off and few vacation days in a year, why not take the chance to have your very own online business?

Of course, it is easier said than done. You can’t just create your own website, sell products and wait for the money to come in. While that’s what we all aim to achieve in online business, it does not go exactly as that.

Why? Because you are not alone in this world.

Before you can think of online business, someone else is already making a lot of income from it. But this does not mean you will give up and lose hope already.

There are still a lot of ways to succeed in online business. You just need to know where to start, what to do and how you do it. In this article, I’ll share the most important practices that everyone else has done to succeed make their online business succeed.

Build your foundation

 Foundation is very crucial. You need to have a very good representation of your online business. A good example of this is a website, business logo, website content and credibility of your website. Everything needs to appear professional in every single detail of it because they add value to impress your visitors.

If you don’t have what it takes to develop your own website, you can take sometime studying and practicing the process. If you are willing to invest a lot, you can just hire someone else to do the job for you. Either way, the result should look professional and should benefit you so your online entity won’t look hilarious

Make friends with everyone else

 No man is an Island. A phrase that never gets old and always applicable to everyone. You can’t run an online business from scratch all by yourself. You should make friends to people who have already succeeded in the field so you can ask some tips and advice from their experiences. Since they are miles ahead of you, they can already tell you what to do and what not to do.

While not everyone is willing to share their secrets, you can still get some tips from the experts. After all, it is them who have the experience online, not you.

Where to find people with the same mindset as you:

  • Go to com and join local gatherings in your area.
  • Find Facebook groups in your industry and join their
  • Follow high influential people in your industry and stalk their online for your benefit ie what they read, what they share

Do not limit yourself as to who you will talk to. For instance, your business is about selling online products, don’t keep away yourself from people offering online services. Every now and then, you’ll pick up crucial information you can use for your own benefit.

Live, breath and move online

 Successful people don’t have a social life. Especially the ones who make a living online. Their world circulate in the internet every single day. They didn’t become successful because they just always sit and wait to make the magic happen. They study, read, apply, practice, analyze and observe everything. In short, they spent a large amount of time aiming for their online business to have a break.

While you have control over your time in your own business, you need to spend a lot of time, effort and dedication to make it work.

  • You need to find opportunities where your business can have strong visibility in your
  • You need to find opportunities for your business to get
  • You need to find people to bring to your website as referral In short, you need to be everywhere where your audience are.

Create your own alliances

 Alliance is important in online business. In fact, it is important in our personal life. You need like-minded people to help you promote, support and back you up whenever you introduce something to your audience.

For instance, you are sponsoring and organizing a competition in your industry with prizes coming from your business itself, these so-called alliances can help you spread the word out. They can write a blog post about it, talk about it over social media or even send an email newsletter to their own audience to bring in more people to participate.

Gather loyal followers

 Going back to our second tip, no man is an Island. Your followers, readers, subscribers will make your business succeed. If you only just rely on daily website traffic from organic, paid or social channels, there are times you will see poor performance of your business.

By having loyal followers can help you keep your business alive. Since they can most likely share the word out to their connections, chances that you can increase your website traffic can be extremely high. Compare to having one or two sources of website traffic.


Having an online business is fun. You have control over your life. You have no fear of financial breakdown. But before you can earn a lot, you must dedicate your life to it. Once you succeed, all you need to do is maintain it’s performance, manage the needs of your business to keep it working.
