Are you looking for ways to do business online and want to get additional income besides your main job? Or, are you also looking for a business opportunity that can be done via the internet?

Relax, you are in the right place, and you are not alone. Many people out there are doing the same thing.

Including me.

The internet, which is currently creating a virtual world, has been able to encourage us to build businesses faster and can be used as the main source of income.

Well, here I will share experiences about how registering a new business in the UK with them, plus the steps needed when starting an online business, namely the core things that are important to do so your business can be run immediately.

For those of you who are just starting out, before we discuss further, it’s a good idea to try to define what online business is.

In my opinion, any business that is run using internet media can be said to be ONLINE BUSINESS. So the meaning of BUSINESS ONLINE itself can indeed be very broad.

If we already have a business that is run offline, such as opening a clothing store, food store, toy store, or whatever, then we also open it on the internet, it can be an online business.
Likewise when we want to focus on building a website to be developed into an online portal that allows many people to visit, then we pass the ad slot to earn income, it can also be called an online business.
Online Business Ways for Beginners
Here are some steps on how to start an online business that can be applied to beginners, including:

  • Align your intentions, have the right business mindset.
  • Decide what you want to sell.
  • Create a selling website or online store.
  • Promote your online sales booth.

This initial stage tends to be a lot related to how to sell via the internet, the description is as follows, keep listening.

# 1 – Have the Right Business Mindset

This message you may have heard often.
But remember, what you want to do is build a BUSINESS. So having the right business mindset and positive mental attitude, is IMPORTANT.
We also have to think about building assets, where the assets will later work for us.
Do not get to when we have succeeded in building a business until it is difficult, but ultimately sacrificing other things just because we are busy taking care of business.
You of course also want to have time with family, loved ones, or do other useful things right?

# 2 – Start with Selling

The second step is to decide what you want to sell.
Before actually undergoing a business cycle, you must practice selling through the internet first.
Here are some tips on how to find products to sell:
1. Look for what is needed by the community, look for what is needed by the people around you.
2. You are a problem solver, you are the solution provider of people’s problems.
3. Exchange the benefits that you can provide, into a form of mutually beneficial transaction.
Most people misstep at this stage. They focus too much on the product first, not on the needs of people. So that even a lot of people fell before reaching the first sale.

# 3 – Create a Selling Website or Online Store

The third stage is to create a sales website or online store. Or we can also call it online stalls.
Later we use it as an online selling place or promote on the internet.
If we flashback to the previous step, we must decide what products we want to sell. Easy language, what we want to offer to customers.

# 4 – Online Promotion

After the website is finished, you can fill it with information about the products/services you have. Fill out the website with convincing content.
Don’t just copy paste.
Use words that are appropriate for you to display on the website because this will be a means of promotion and your online office.
For web content material, display the simple ones first, and as much as possible contain the following information:

  • Business profile.
  • Gallery of product/service images and their information.
  • Complete business address by contacting you.
  • How to order and order form.
  • Business/business logo.

Regarding the logo, in my opinion, it should not be considered trivial. Because it can have a tremendous impact on your business entity and business. Namely the recognition and trust/trust of potential customers and customers.
If you feel the tips on how this online business is useful, please share it with friends, relatives, and even your spouse, and especially for people who are in need of additional income so they can take action for a better life change.
Thank you, goodness always is with you all.
