+ 2: Find A Demand In The Market To Fill
1 lecture 01:10

As with any business, the first step is to find a demand in the market to fill. In this lecture I explain how this can be done easily - so that you'll have a good idea as to what you can start selling via your online store.

+ 3: Decide On Your Platforms
1 lecture 02:11

Depending on the type of product or service you've chosen to sell, you can either start an eCommerce website (such as Shopify) or maybe an eBay or Amazon store would be best if you've picked a product. You should research your competitors to see where the demand is highest and go from there!

+ 4: Plan Your Marketing Strategy
1 lecture 02:44

Having an online business is great, however without any marketing you won't see any profits from your customers until you spread the word about your products or services. The type of areas to think about in this section should be your marketing budget, the social media channels you plan to use and factors such as the timescales and content that you're going to publish on a regular basis for your audience.

+ 5: Choose Your Business Name
1 lecture 01:21

So you've found a product or a service to sell. You've decided how you're going to market your business - the next step is to choose a business name. Ideally, this should be simple and catchy. It should make it obvious to any potential customer as to what you sell, however this isn't essential. The most important factor should be that it's memorable so that you receive repeat customers when they remember your store's name!

+ 6: Build Your Online Store
1 lecture 01:21

This is the point where you can build your actual store. This requires a domain name (should be the same as your business name) and web hosting. Both of these can be bought online from web hosting companies very easily.

You'll then need a professional logo for your store as well as accurate descriptions for the products or services that you sell.

+ 7: Market Your Business
1 lecture 02:22

Put your marketing strategy to action, but be consistent over time as it may take a while for your effects to be noticeable within your business. This may take several weeks or months of experimentation before you see big profits from your store.

+ 8: Build Your Audience
1 lecture 02:02

Very important! Sales are great, but when you have the email addresses and a following from all of your previous customers, this give you an amazing opportunity to let them know about any new products or services that you have to offer. Repeat customers are great when it comes to online business!

+ 9: Adjust And Experiment
1 lecture 02:20

As with any type of business and marketing, experimentation is key. Have an idea? Give it a go! However it's best to do tests which are unlikely to have a negative effect on any products which are already selling well. Experiment on areas of your business which aren't doing well and then you have less to lose if anything goes wrong!
