Before we get into the tools listed below, please note, some of the links are for affiliate products and I will make a small commission if you decide to buy anything after following the link and purchasing anything on the vendor site.
All at no extra cost to you in any way. I do this in order to make this my full time job, to provide information of value to you. I would greatly appreciate any support you give.
It’s basically someone supplying something that someone else wants.
It could be something you have:
So, what you do, is you buy hosting, setup a website and load your product or service description to the website.
Then you need to create content to educate people. You do so by explaining the product, showing them how to use it and explain how others have benefited from using it.
Once the site is loaded with content, it’s your job to get the word out through marketing.
There’s a lot of different ways to market a website, but hopefully the tools supplied in this list will help you create everything you need to get started.
Lookout for educational books, posts on our blog and courses we intend to advertise throughout our site.
Before you begin working on your Website/Business, you want to be sure you do your research. Make sure your business will be profitable before you start building your web property. For this we use these tools.
There are quite a few keyword research tools available. We’d love to only use Google’s Free keyword tool, but we’ve come to realize that Google no longer provides accurate, in depth information. Their results are more like averages.
We can’t work with averages when we want detailed, accurate data to begin a marketing process, so we rely on exterior tools that give us the results we want.
We’ve got a structured process for the depth at which we do keyword research.
It all depends on the campaign and the objectives. We target keywords based on the customer avatars we’ve created and then build out content to attract leads to our web properties.
We’ve established we have a good business idea. There is demand for the product/service we want to provide.
We’ve done our keyword research and now want to get the business started.
The first step to get started, is deciding on a business name.
You can actually do a domain search, then see if you can use the domain name as your business name. It’s not necessary, but makes life simpler.
You can’t run a business until you’ve registered it. We’ve linked to places where you can do all of that and also where you can get legal documentation for your site and copyright protection for the content you place online.
There’s three options for you to choose from. It depends on your level of patience really. I say, use one platform, get everything you need setup and working in the least ammount of time.
I’m linking you to my best recommendation below.
If you’ve got your domain name in mind, then click through to one of our preferred partners below and get it registered.
As soon as it’s registered, install WordPress on it. (Normally as easy as 1-click to install). First Time installing WordPress? See this Blog post for step by step instructions.
Need help with your marketing campaigns? We’ve got the team and resources to run Ads, Create content, distribute and track everything.
You run your business, while we do all the time intensive stuff.
I trust you’re familiar with WordPress and installing it. If not, I suggest you go read my Blog Post, that shows you how.
Once you’ve got WordPress installed and ready to work, it’s time to get a theme installed.
I’m linking to my preferred resource for themes and plugins to start off with.
I’ve used multiple Theme Providers over the years. I only recommend the ones that you will get the most benefit from.
All, of these suppliers are great at supporting, and answering any questions you have about your theme.
Content creation is where a lot of people get stuck.
We understand that it can be hard to run your business, manage staff, inventory and who knows how much else.
The last thing you still want to do is spend hours creating content, which may not even work, let alone all the promotion that’s involved after the content is created.
Let us help in the process.
Creating content for your business is increasingly important if you want to attract leads to your business.
Inbound content creation is at the font of all SEO efforts.
PPC Campaigns bring in quick wins, but Inbound SEO efforts win more traffic and business over time.
To create your own content, you’re going to need a few “toys”. I suggest a decent camera, tripod and carrier bag to begin with.
You’ll also need editing tools and image manipulation software which I’ll link to below.
From laptops for editing to office for work, these are the essentials everyone needs.
From Hosting to Web Design, Content Creation, Distribution and Channel Messaging, we do it all.
We plan all Campaigns with you, then delegate projects to our teams who execute Marketing Strategies according to the Campaign Objectives.
This all really depends on the work to be performed. For things that are once off, like logo design or business card design, there are once off fees, but for Monthly services, obviously, there will be recurring fees.
Talk to us and tell us what you need, we’ll work something out from there.
We work on Paypal, Payoneer,
Paxum, and all major credit card payment systems. No work is released without full payment and recurring payments are paid up front.
We work on a trial basis. For three months, you get to test our services with a 30 day, cancel anytime policy. After the 3 month period, you can decide to go on annual contract or remain an month to month retainers. You can cancel at any time. All our staff are professionally qualified and work with you to ensure you get the service you require.
Yes, you can chop and change packages as you see fit. We suggest starting small, then add services as you get to know us and our standards.
We work with WordPress, Wix, Weebly, Shopify, Wooocommerce. So that includes standard Blogs, Websites, Social Media Platforms, Directories, Auction Sites, and eCommerce Websites.
Yes, we work with all types of integrations. It all depends on the API type you want to integrate and if there are current solutions. If we need to do our own coding to create an app to do the work, we will do it.
We work in sections called milestones. The first milestone requires three revisions before the development process begins. During development, there will be two further revisions. One at the halfway mark, then one before publishing. Any other revision requirements need to be added into the working contract.
No-one can guarantee high rankings. We do move your web properties up in the search engines, but all efforts are based upon prior knowledge of what works. We are at the mercy of the search engines, and constant algorithm changes make it increasingly difficult to guarantee any placements. Anyone telling you otherwise is selling you snake oil.
It goes without saying, that the more traffic (visitors) you bring to your website, the better your chances are of converting one or more of the visitors into sales.
