Five things needed to build a successful online business

image

 

Many people have decided to work from home but online. Working online is by far the smartest decision you can make because it allows you the ability to leverage the internet. Over the last five years or so, the online business community has probably doubled in size. Before making a decision to build a business online, there are five things needed to start and grow a successful online business.

Belief

The first thing that is needed is Belief. You have to belief that you are able to become a successful entrepreneur. One of the reasons people quit on their dreams is because they do not belief in themselves. Furthermore, they do not believe in their products or services. If you do not believe in you how do you expect others to believe in you? By the way, no one should ever believe in you more than you believe in yourself. Your belief in yourself is detrimental to your success as an online entrepreneur, especially when there’s so much competition in the marketplace.

A good company

The second thing you need in order to build a successful online business is a good company. You need a company that has a proven track record of producing successful entrepreneurs. In addition, the company must be of good reputation with solid leadership. The success or failure of a company begins and ends with leadership. So make sure you have a good company.

Capture page

The third thing you need is a capture page. Since you are doing business online, you need a capture page to collect people names and email addresses in exchange for the information they requested. Hopefully, you want to collect their phone numbers so you can follow up with them via landline. There are many types of capture pages that you can customize if you prefer. You don’t need to be technical to create a page. Templates are already made so all you have to do is point and click.

Autoresponder

The fourth thing you will need in order to build a successful online business is an autoresponder. An autoresponder is a business tool that you use to follow up with prospective business partners and/or customers regarding your products and services. There are many autoresponders on the market however not all are created equal. If you are doing marketing online, you definitely need an autoresponder. If not, you are missing a vital part of building relationships with people who you could do business with.

Paid traffic

Last, but not least, you need paid traffic to build a successful business online. Many people, especially on Facebook, are trying to build their business using free strategies alone. That doesn’t work well if at all. This is because the market place is saturated with a variety of offers. Sadly, many marketers are promoting their websites in places that offer free promotion and guess what? Everyone else is doing the same thing. So what do you think the results are going to be? zero. If you are going to do a for free traffic strategy make sure you implement a paid traffic strategy. This is to support your free efforts until you no longer need paid efforts. Hope that makes sense. If you have no money to invest, you are going to have a difficult time and probably need to get a second job or something to pay for traffic.

Conclusion

These five things will assist you to have a successful online business. All five are essential and cannot be neglected. Success online requires a consistent work ethic. There are more people online than there were five years ago. You are competing for the attention of people who are already bombarded with a variety of offers. Be willing to stand out from the competition and do what it takes to succeed online.

Does Posting In Facebook Groups Really Work?

Does posting in Facebook groups really work? That must be the ten thousand dollar question. I believe there are two answers to that question and I will explain why. Yes, posting in Facebook groups work. However, it depends on what and where you’re posting. If you look on Facebook, you’ll notice people posting negativity along with their business opportunity. You can’t mix the sweet and the sour together because it sends the wrong message to your prospects.

What works on Facebook? Inspirational/motivational quotes. They are awesome for personal and business matters. You can get them online however, I do believe you should create your own as well. This is what separates the leaders from the followers although we all start off as followers. If you want to brand yourself on Facebook, you must post information that provides value. Many people look for posts to share on their timeline that promotes empowerment. As you share value, people will begin to comment and direct message you saying thanks for the inspiration!

image

What doesn’t work on Facebook? Spam. From time to time, someone will post an income program on my timeline. I consider it spam because I did not request it. Nor did I give permission for it to be posted on my page. I also learned that mesaging people who you are not friends with about your business opportunity is also spam. Please stop this. No matter how many times the following statement is preached, people still don’t get it: build relationships first BEFORE sending your link. If someone wants your link, they will ask for it. Just because someone accepts your friend request, does not mean you should send them your unsolicited link. There is nothing wrong with building rapport and asking first. Spamming in Facebook groups doesn’t work because everyone is doing the same thing. Most groups are nothing but spam fests. If a prospect visits these groups, he or she would be confused.

In conclusion, does posting in Facebook groups really work? Yes if you are providing value and no, if you’re not. It depends on what and where you’re posting. Unfortunately, some of these groups are useless. Around 80% of your content should be value based and 20% should be promotion. When you do this, you will be looked upon as a leader not a spammer.

Brand Yourself

Branding yourself is important if you are seeking to establish yourself as a leader. This is especially true online. Nowadays, it is not enough just to promote a product. You must promote yourself. There is a difference between marketing and branding. Marketing is about getting exposure and expanding it for a particular product or service. Branding involves establishing your credibility and authority in the marketplace. In essence, you are stating that you are the leader that people are looking for. It is important to understand that the people who make the most money in business, branded themselves first.

If you look in many of the Facebook groups, people are spamming their opportunity. Spamming clearly doesn’t work. If you and I are in the same company, promoting the same product, what separates you from me? Nothing! However, if I brand myself, that will make all the difference. This is what you want to do. If a company goes bankrupt, you can start another organization and continue to do well because you branded yourself. Mr. Donald Trump went bankrupt several times yet, he’s a billionaire. That’s because he first branded himself through knowledge. He knows how to make money and does it. Banks will still loan him money because he doesn’t need it. Did you catch that? Brand yourself. Everyone who is successful branded themselves. That’s why having a blog is important. You may be saying to yourself, “everyone has a blog!”. True, but not all bloggers are unique.

In closing, brand yourself. You inc is what counts. Have you ever heard of ITL? It stands for Invest, Learn, Teach. This is what successful brands do. Create some form of content that can be shared. As you consistently share value, which is what many people don’t do, you will attract more people to your brand.
