6 Tips to a Successful Online Business


Whether you’re trying to make it as a professional blogger or affiliate marketer try following these six tips to get the most out of your online business.

1. Offer Value – This has to be the most important factor in any online business, not only do you have to offer your guests something of value whether it be information, a tool, or advice it has to be better and different from what they can get elsewhere.

2. Build Relationships – If you’re serious about working online this is a must. Building relationships with your visitors is crucial to building trust which is the basis for any potential sales. Try offering something for free to your guests, but make sure it’s a solid product and not just another 2 dollar eBook.

3. Find Information – Always be on the lookout for new developments and technologies that can improve your business. Online traffic is the building block of success, thus you should always be striving to increase it. Although be wary of the latest and greatest, focus on building a site with tons of original content instead.

4. Perform Testing/Tracking – Once you begin to see an increase in traffic and sales it’s vital to start tracking everything. You want to track, where your sales are coming from, which advertisements are converting, and most importantly what’s not working. You may be hesitant about paying a monthly fee for a tracking service but take my word for it; they pay for themselves. Once you start launching more efficient campaigns you’ll immediately see the difference in your profit margins. I use Aweber as an Autoresponder and for tracking.

5. Use Repetition – This is a no-brainer, and the reason why tracking is so important. Once you see what’s working do it over and over again. If you find that one keyword is showing significant sales spend time on keyword research and try to find a similar one. This will also help you narrow down where you should be focusing your energy.

6. Use Time Management – The irony is that the most appealing aspect of a work at home business is also your worst enemy. There are a plethora of distractions at home that can have you waste away entire days. To avoid these pitfalls try a couple things. Develop a work week schedule that you and family members will respect. Have a plan of action for each day; this will keep you focused and productive the entire day. Finally, limit distractions such as television or unnecessary web browsing.

    Very helpful information. Thank you. I was looking for employment on Craigslist and found formgo.com, which claimed in its listing that one could make $750 a week. I googled it and your website popped up. After reading through your information for 30 minutes or so, I concluded survey work online is fruitless. I am better off looking into starting my own online business.

    Thank you for all the info.

    I appears to be sound advice, but just like anything online you shouldn’t have to pay someone to be able to work. Once you start paying someone then you become the costumer and not employee. I can see paying for a traking service after you start showing an income and even better if it not connected with the company that you are working with.

    If you follow step by step what they say, you will get similar results to theirs when they were starting. but better because now your are building on their experience. But if you are going to do it “your way”, then you will get your own results, I can bet my car that your results will not be better than if you had done what you were supposed to. They are like a franchise where every thing has been systemitizes, proven, designed. It’s different from the “gurus” because they are not gurus. They are true educators and I say it because I’m a Proffesor and Lecturer and can tell the difference between good education and blah blah blah. Their education
    Is worth every penny.

    wondering if anyone knows of a legit honest online business opportunity, or even simply a legit way to make an income online. Anything I have ever read leads me to believe that internet marketing may be the best way to make a income online, problem is I dont really want to develop my own webpage and or products/information to sell.

    Thanks to all for any information.

    Hello Zack~ I have been working from home with a Company called Helios Media, and very happy. You can work part time, or full time. It’s all incoming calls offering a no-cost service to people wanting to further their education. You simply find schools, either campus or online, in the Helios data base, and submit the information to the school. You are helping people go back to school, and no pressure. They pay twice a month by direct deposit. And, training is Paid! I would highly recommend them!

    First off non of this advice help me learn from the start. How do you start to make money online usingthe
    the system advertised by a tv star named andrew morrison. He offered his book and cd training on tv Sunday night November 25, 2012. He was on tv late nite and live used a formula to make 200,000/mo. That is how much he is making on ads just on facebook.

    Im looking for his phone number. Please email to me how I may be able to make money online thru Sndrew Morrison’s book at cost of only 12.95 one time fee. teresa

    Michael is right,

    Dont waste your money on these internet marketing schemes and scams – they work for 1% of the people who actually purchase these things. With any legitimate business, you are not going to make 100’s of thousands of dollars by buying SOMEONE elses product to make them thousands of dollars. I dont know how to stress that enough. To build your OWN online business you need time, patience, and your OWN capital – or investors close to you to commit to it. No one ever got rich by making someone else rich… thats just another form of being a laborer – you do NOT work for yourself. I have 100% funded and operated my own business, Im not rich – but I have my own financial freedoms as I chose and work based on my home schedule. This advice is FREE and very true – someone is NOT going to tell you how to make money. The best tool you have is research research research – read reviews from real ppl who actually used the products. People are so quick to throw money at something thinking they are going to get buku bucks because the website looks “enticing”. Hard work and dedication are the only things that pay off when you are running an online business – not someone elses hard work and dedication that you have to pay for.

    Andrew Morisson is the brother of Anthony Morisson; if you don’t purchase their $3000.00 plus system (which they claim works)you certainly will not make any money with any of their books.

    My advice; Don’t spend money on internet marketing guru’s and build your own site with reputable affiliate links. Blogg as much as posible to build your business.

    Good Luck!

    Well said, but success online has one important aspect people do neglect and I believe it should always be included in a list like this. It is the issue of mentorship and protege. Without a mentor, coming to start online business can be very frustrating and fruitless. Worst still, if you have a mentor that mislead you, then you are finish. So, mentorship is key.

    so far what I have read in Reviewopedia makes more sense & is far more believable & usefull than everything that I have been able to find that keeps costing you more than your ever likely to get back from it. Great site, keep up the good work. I will post again after I have put some of this info into practice

    Right on. Whether running an offline, home based, or online business the advice in the six tips is excellent. I was raised in a home attached to a family business and ran my own business for several years. Tracking sales and trends is vital.

    I have been retired for over ten years but what my Mother, who ran the family business used to say still applies. “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

    I am on the Reviewopedia site checking some things because I truly
    dislike retirement. I know an online business is just what I need
    to fill that ‘lonesome for business’ gap. Besides, I really like
    people and a challenge.

    MammaMia says:

    It looks like SupplyFloor.com pertains to Ebay sales. To offer products on eBay you need to OWN them. Obviously this supplyfloor.com somehow will require from you either to buy stuff or to leave a sizable $$ deposit to respond for the merchandise you are selling on eBay or so. If this is the case, then it may involve a scam. If this appreciation is not correct, then someone explain to me how this works without cash expenses. Thanks.
