    Seven Steps to Starting Your Internet Business


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    There is no reason to be afraid of creating an online business. It is a very easy process if you take it one step at a time. Letís make the assumption you arenít going to quit your day job (not yet, anyway).So how do you get started working part-time only?

    Think of this as a step-by-step process.

    Step 1. Forget the website for now!

    Many people believe they have to start an online business with a website. This is wrong and a dangerous mistake. Why? Websites (particularly for a novice) can take a lot of time and money to create. Why start there when you arenít even certain you can make this work? Letís start easier.

    You ďthinkĒ you want an online business. Letís start by spending maybe $20. Sound ok?

    Go to your closet or garage. Find four or five things to sell and list them on eBay. Itís very easy to set up a seller account (and free) by following the eBay tutorials. The listing fees are very cheap compared to other methods of selling. It is an excellent place for a novice seller to start.

    Now, when you make that first sale, do you feel a rush? If you donít feel the exhilaration that comes with selling something, donít quit your day job. An online business is NOT for you. But what if you do feel that rush? Time for step 2.

    Step 2: Make the Business Legal

    To start a business requires at the very least a business license (probably city/county and state) as well as a resale license. These are very easy to obtain. Start by going to your local city or county office (determined by where you live). Tell them you want to form a home-based business and they will give you the paperwork necessary. Also ask them what state obligations you have. They will point you in the right direction.
