Internet Business Coaching

By Pat Smith

Internet business refers to any type of business model that offers products or services for sale online. Business owners who own brick-and-mortar stores often use websites to generate sales from outside their local community. Others use a website to provide information to generate sales leads. Some use a website as their sole means of conducting business, while others use it as a platform to sell other people's products through affiliate marketing.

The type of Internet business developed depends on many factors. Many people are led to believe that if they build a website visitors from around the globe will arrive. Nothing could be further from the truth. Operating a successful web-based business requires considerably more time than the marketing gurus want you to believe.

Designing a website is a crucial element of any Internet business. First you'll need to decide if you will build it yourself or hire a web designer. Then you'll need to decide if you will use a web-building software package such as Microsoft's Expression Studio or Adobe's Dream Weaver, or if you prefer using a Content Management System (CMS) like Wordpress premade or customized templates.

Building a website requires a developing a solid plan. Considerations include color schemes, font sizes, hyper linking strategies, anchor text linking strategies, graphics, shopping carts, electronic mailing lists, and how to deliver information.

Next, you'll need to decide on a hosting service. The biggest mistake any online marketer can make is to use a free hosting service. People often underestimate how detrimental this can be. When visitors arrive at a free hosted Internet business the first thing they think is, if this company is too cheap to pay for hosting, how can I trust their product or service?

Most people want to further monetize their Internet business through online advertising. Some people use Google ads, while others elect to sell online advertising space. There are multiple ways to advertise online. In addition to text ads, Internet business owners can engage in video marketing strategies, audio marketing, or podcast marketing.

Business owners who combine a website with a brick-and-mortar store will want to incorporate local listings to ensure their business is found when potential customers perform an online search.

In order to achieve success, Internet markers must incorporate a variety of online marketing strategies in order to drive sufficient traffic. In addition to the aforementioned strategies, Internet marketers should be prepared to engage in article marketing to capitalize on their most predominate keyword phrases.
