Decide on a Business Model
Just like a normal business you have to figure out "what" and "how" to do i.e. always make full plan of your business before you start, DON'T start until then . . . . . This will help you create a business idea and a plan and consider what other online business are doing for successful operations. Some of the options include: sell products and services, information, become a reseller, advertisement selling and extend your existing business online.
Decide on a good name
Online business is pretty much the same when compared to the offline business. The name that you decide should reflect your business in some way or the other. Your domain name is how your customers recognize you. Customers need to remember it, spell it and type it correctly in the web browsers. Good domain names that are short, easy and those that reflect your business purpose are memorable.
Effective Online store
Building an online store like an offline store is something that will attract your customer to your website. Make your own online store that has the same qualities as an offline store. The store should be easy to navigate and have a good search function. The design should reflect the image that you are searching for.
Advertising your online business
Advertising your online business in the form of advertising in newspapers and other public places also helps. To improve traffic to your webpage, you can do marketing online through various ways like submitting it to search engines, search engine marketing, email marketing to your clients but not spams, develop a promotion strategy, PR techniques etc.
Provision to swipe cards
If you are dealing with product sale then you ought to have provisions to accept credit cards and process orders like a real business. Also it needs to be secured as your customers will feel safe to do online business in your website.
Good customer relation
Making your customer happy should be your main goal. An online store can make their customers happy by offering a lot of information online, answer questions promptly and ship it as quick as possible.
Choosing the right web host for your website is more like choosing a landlord for renting your office as in real business. A good web host can handle a lot of traffic and responds to your questions quickly and offers other services quickly.
Scope for improvement
You got to have a constant check on the quality of services that you offer and also try new approaches. Try and make your website more interactive and have a lot of images. Make it more creative and colorful for the customers to be very attracted to your webpage. Also advertise your website and make sure you test the advertisements and measure their effectiveness.
