Getting Started on the Internet

Most small Business owners have trouble getting started on the Internet.

They feel that they would be wasting their time and money building a website because most of their customers prefer face to face or telephone contact. 

This used to be the case, however times are changing.

Many are now finding that a website helps them increase their cash flow and profits by tapping into the power of the Internet when they combine their off-line promotional activities with online lead generation.

Once they do get started and use the internet as a tool for finding new customers, educating them on what products and services they offer and explaining why they should do Business with them, as well as keeping in touch with existing and potential customers and following up with additional offers regularly, they realise a website is hands down the best form of leverage you can have.

But where do you start?

Let me ask you a couple of questions...

  • Do you have a constant supply of new, targeted leads coming to you daily looking for your products or services?

  • Would you like to make unlimited amounts of money without ever physically seeing your customer or the product they purchased?

  • What if you could make money overnight and on weekends when your store was closed without having to lift a finger?

  • Do you have an automated follow up mechanism in place that keeps in contact with your customers if they don't buy the first time they come into your store, and keeps offering them products or services until they do?

This is the power the Internet can give you if you set it up right.

Below are a selection of articles that will guide you through the process of building and managing your own profitable, more like your own Web Business

With your own website you will have complete control of just how many visitors come to your store or office - not enough customers, simply pay a few cents each for them and more will come to your online store (you'll read more on this in the articles below) - many whom you never meet will leave money in your bank account as they pass through. 

Others will live close by and will come into your premises and shop with you personally.

Either way, your sales and profits should increase.

In the future, you may decide that the online portion of your Business is where you want to focus your time and attention because of the painless profits it generates for you compared with what you are doing now. 

If so, you will be in a position to do just that - and create multiple streams of income in the process.

So, let's begin on our journey towards owning a profitable web Business...

Incorporating a website into your Local Business

The first article introduces a product I have used extensively called Solo Build It! and explains in detail how your Local Business can use a website to increase your profits no matter what you sell...

Local Business owners have a massive advantage over big corporations on the Internet - they can adapt and change quickly, responding to changes in customer needs and desires. You can use a website to take advantage of this flexibility and reap the rewards.

Sure, you can go out and spend thousands of dollars on a razzle dazzle, techno filled, flash looking website, but guess what, if you don't follow the process of how the web actually works, you won't get any traffic or sales.

I have found each example offers some valuable insights into selling products and services on the Internet. This is a powerful example of how ordinary people can achieve sometimes massive success on the 'net. To read this article, Click Here.
