Step One: Build a home on the Web
If you are decided on building a business online, you need to start thinking about building a home on the Web. Having a Web address that people can find is how you establish a foothold on the Internet. You can start with a blog, or you can procure a website and have your very own domain name. Either way, you need to create a base of operations. Developing a following and building your target audience are time-tested strategies of online brand awareness, promotion, and marketing. These may be basic strategies but they work wonders, especially for beginners. Before employing more complicated (and more expensive) approaches, it is wise to focus all efforts at substantiating that your business is authentic. This is how you start building trust and gaining loyal followers.
The Internet may be a haven of money-making schemes, but it is also the target of scammers and schemers. Remember to always exercise caution when browsing the Web for possible opportunities to earn.
