Late night television really needs to be banned. Websites that promote “Get Rich Quick” schemes to help people build a successful online business OVERNIGHT need to be wiped from the face of the Internet. Why? Because there’s more to building a successful online business than hopping on the latest bandwagon and hoping you can ride along. It takes hard work, perseverance, patience and, of course, a great set of tools!
Optimize your site for older versions of Internet Explorer (IE7 and IE8). Everyone loves to hate Internet Explorer, but the sad fact is that a large minority of internet users still use these old versions of IE. They don’t render many elements in compliance with web standards, so workarounds are required. Specifically, read about the “box model bug” that plagued IE for years.
Since websites give you the power that is perfect for your business, organization and personal use, for sure you want one so you can keep in touch with your network of contacts, post high-quality photos, share files, maintain a 24/7 online presence and so much more.
You will be happy to know that many churches own and operate website hosting services and they are open to doing business with other churches as well. However, their drawback is that they are quite expensive as compared to regular website hosts. Plus, they are not as professional as the regular web hosts. The big advantage is that they know what a church wants and they already have a library of interactive tools and content that can be very helpful. Choose such providers if your church has the budget.
Your website, of course, needs an identity. This is where a domain name comes in. Start by brainstorming what to call your website based on its category. You need to have multiple options though, since it is possible that a particular domain you’ve thought of is already taken. By then, you can now register it.
4) A good mailing list. Of course, squeeze pages were created for a reason. A good mailing list is an essential component of any business, helping you to grow your customer base and encourage repeat visitors. Put your link to sign up for your mailing list someplace it is easily noticeable, but AFTER people have had a chance to see what you have to offer. You’ll generate more positive leads this way (you know, people that might actually buy something) and keep your customers right where they belong-with you!
You will be your own Boss! As much as this is super fantastic and you can’t wait to be the boss, there are also average tasks as well. You are the only person that can answer to customer complaints and any issues that come up when running the business. It would be great to become part of a network or forum for weekly support. As a single person boss, you also have to start to know everything about anything; from taxes to sales, marketing to design, from dealing with stores and selling online. You have to be able to master and wear many hats that in my opinion can be quite challenging but also exciting.
