The ABC's of Online Success

by Team Antoine Campbell Enterprise

Are you thinking about starting an online home based business from scratch but don't really know how to get going? Well, then this article is for you! I have outlined seven steps to get your online home based business up and running in a matter of days, or even hours.


Here you go!


1. Should you sell a service?


Unless you have a well-developed skill such as, web design, graphics design, writing or some other creative or artistic flair, you'll have to concentrate on finding or creating a product. In selling your services, you must first determine whether a paying market actually exists for your services. Initially, you'll need to do some research and look at similar services being offered. A good indicator is usually when there are numerous similar services available. This would suggest a buoyant market, but it's not always the case. A friendly yet inquisitive email sent to a few established service providers in the business you're considering, should give you an insight. Take a good look at the existing competition. Look at the quality of their work. Could you do it better? What prices are they charging? Could you do it cheaper? If you can effectively do either of these you're on your way to building online wealth.


2. Domain Name

Since you are starting an online home based business it is obviously very important that you create an online presence for yourself and your business. So a website is an absolute must have. The first thing you need to do before you start building your website is to register a domain name.


One of the best places for doing this is https://www.namecheap.com


So what should your domain name be? Well, I can't entirely answer that for you but I can tell you that you want to make sure that your domain name reflects what your business is. Too many people use their names, some "cute" name, or some other irrelevant domain do not do that unless it actually is reflective of your home based business!



3. Choosing a Web Host

If you don't have a way to host your domain/website, you won't be able to proceed with your online home based business. Yes, this is a very important step!

4. Building Your Site

This will most likely be an ongoing task for as long as you have your home based business. However, just to get something up and going at first here are some pointers:


  • Keep your text relevant to what you are offering.
  • Do not stuff keywords into your text.
  • Do not put banners on your home page.
  • Always have a catchy headline.
  • Keep the site clean looking and easy to read.
  • Dark text on a light background is always best.
  • Let your visitors know what you can do for them.
  • Make navigation very simple for visitors.


There are many more rules of website design but those are some of the basic ones that you need to worry about for now. This step is something you will always be keeping up on. Make sure you continue to learn, tweak, test, and build your site.



5. Uploading files to your site

So you have built a few pages for your new site, now what do you do? Well, you have to upload them to your web host. Typically this will be done using "FTP''. Now you are probably thinking, "What the heck is that?" Well, don't worry about all the technical stuff. In simple terms it is a way to get the files, or pages, that you just built onto your website and "live" to the world. You can just ask your web host for your FTP information or do some searching around the frequently asked questions in your control panel and you should be able to find this out fairly easily. Once you do it is simply a matter of putting in the information into an FTP client and watching it upload to your website.


Or if you have ProspectVault, you would not need to do this at all! https://www.prospectvault.io


6. Putting your business on autopilot

This is a big step in creating a successful online home based business because it keeps you from being completely consumed by it and actually allows you to enjoy your new found freedom. One of the recipes to creating a successful online home based business is to automate as many things as possible. This will save yourself time to do things you do best and actually enjoy your business.


One of the best ways to do this is with an autoresponder. An autoresponder pretty much defines itself. It will automatically send out your emails at intervals that you set.


A great way to utilize autoresponders is to write up an e-course and/or a weekly newsletter, and then copy/paste those messages into your autoresponder, set the days you want your prospects to receive them, and voila it's on autopilot.


You will want to have a form on your website for your visitors to subscribe to it. They will put in their name and email address and you will have a prospect to email to over and over again.


I have used many different autoresponders since I started my home based business and I can tell you without a doubt that my favorite is ProspectVault’s workflow automation. I use them to this day and highly recommend them. You can find them at: https://www.prospectvault.io



7. Automating the sales process

The last thing you need to do to get your online home based business up and going is to setup your ordering process, so visitors to your website can buy whatever product you are selling. The very first, and most common way people sell digital products, like e-books and software, from their sites, which you can do within ProspectVault. You can find them at: https://www.prospectvault.io


Also create a stripe account as your payment processor which you can do here: https://stripe.com/ Setting up an account with them is pretty darn easy to do. Just follow their instructions. They are well known and respected so you should feel safe with them.


Alrighty, that's all there is to it. Seven steps to getting your new online home based business set up and going strong. I will admit that for the complete beginner it may not be as easy as it sounds but it is not rocket science either. You could honestly have all this done in just a day or two.


Do some reading, learning, a little bit of guessing, and jump right in. Your online home based business will be up and running before you know it.
