Is a Website Essential for an Internet Business

Starting an online business begins with an idea. But, this is just the tip of the iceberg. A lot of time and effort goes into being ready to take that idea live to the public.

Even though this article is about the essentials of a Website or Blog for an Internet Business it’s important to note that a business plan is always the first step in starting any business.

The basics of a business plan center around what we hope to accomplish with the business and how we plan to do so. The business plan also states how you plan to make money. By listing what services will be offered, how often they will be offered, the plan is clearly stated as to the basis of the business venture.

Will you use a website to enhance your business? Many small businesses are Internet based. This “location” cuts down on overhead and staff. Any business that needs delegating can be outsourced to contractors who are responsible for their own taxes and benefits.

Websites have many advantages. First, your products and services take on global appeal. Local advertising corners that area of the market. On the Internet, the market is much larger. Your target audience may be the same abut you are reaching more of them.

The Internet has been the downfall of many businesses. Remember the dot com era? Growing by leaps and bounds overnight is not the best thing always. The production couldn’t keep up with the demand so they went out of business because of too much business.

Understanding the potential of the Internet allows a business owner to plan for contingencies to avoid failure. Start off slowly with an online store. Sell products on eBay where you can control the flow and manage interest. When you are ready, open the floodgates and see what happens.

Website design is not something that many people are versed in. Start with a blog such as WordPress that is easy to set up and manage. You can even have free blogging sites such as Blogger and When you are ready convert to a website of your own you can register your own domain name and hire a designer to handle the technical aspects.

Much of what you will need to manage the day to day operations can be learned as you go along like on the job training. Leave the harder stuff to the professionals. It will be money well spent.
