It is recommended that you have access to an Internet capable computer
and have an Internet access account
you to surf the net.
As soon as possible register your
business website name (domain name).
Setup the website Host account.
(This is an account with a company, which provides computer space and
traffic support when someone accesses your website.)
Compile your marketing material. You
need someone to guide your through the maze of terms and concepts needed
to set up the initial site. Lets be honest you need someone to design
a website for you - do not even think of doing it yourself.
Now your are up and running and open for business, you wait eager, but
only an occasional trickle comes your way. Web site owners seem to be
under the mistaken belief that once they have their web site up and
running they are set - who needs to worry about advertising, customers
are sure to stumble across you at some stage, this might work if your
web site is your hobby and you aren't interested in making money, but
you definitely wouldn't be acting this way if you have a actual store,
so why think it will would work on the Net. You need to market
- and you need to learn to adapt your marketing to the web, with its
banner advertising, links on sites and search engines.
