- Think of a product or service –what product or service that you are good at and you think people will buy? or maybe a need that you want to give the world a solution?
- Have a business name & create a business plan – after coming up with a product or service that you want to sell online, get your paper and start your business plan, it doesn’t need to be a formal and case study-type business plan, it can be a simple plan one page business plan with your vision, mission, pricing guide and sales plans. Start by having a business name, it will keep you moving and going to your business plan.
- Prepare your logo – I believe that one of the most important “must haves” in an online business is your branding, and it will all start with a professionally done company logo.
- Create your selling platform –ready your website, social media channels wherein you want to use to connect with your potential customers. You can start selling through a Facebook page then once you’ve tested the market, start your company website.
- Just Begin –just do it, as they say, you’ll never know unless you try. Sometimes, we need to take risk, jump to the unknown, make progress while we’re on our journey and most of all, pray about it if God gave you a stamp to go into that business. What makes you so afraid to try?
