Learn How & Where To Start Your eBusiness
Selling online is big business - and it is getting bigger every year. The internet and ecommerce are both still in their relative infancy as new technology and there is much potential for new information, products and services online now and in the future.





Starting A Successful Online Business

There is no better time than right now to start your own new Canadian ebusiness and start to develop your online income stream. You could spend hundreds or even thousands of hours searching through information on the internet - not to mention a fair bit of trial and error - just to learn where to start!

If finding specific information on how to develop a successful online business is your primary goal then you absolutely must learn the critical mistake that will sink your new ebusiness before it even starts.



The Critical Mistake That Will Sink A New eBusiness

To understand what this mistake is and more importantly how you can avoid falling victim to it - you must first understand the context of the situation. Selling online requires a unique approach to all conventional forms of business such as the storefront, traffic, marketing, sales strategy and product fulfilment.

You need to understand how each area of ecommerce operates, and how to fit your business into a constantly evolving and changing marketplace. Selling online is not an exact science, but it does require a formula for success.



The First Step You Take Online Can Be Your Last

If you decide to try to establish an online business presence it is fair to say that there is much that you will need to learn in order to be successful at your new business. The simple truth is that selling online is an industry where a little advanced knowledge and planning can go a long way towards propelling your business forward. You don't necessarily need to be an online business guru to make a substantial income online - you just need to follow a few proven strategies.



The number one mistake that can cripple your new ebusiness before it even starts is to purchase a domain name for your website (www.domainname.com) without first understanding exactly how search engine optimisation works and why the domain name that you choose can be the single most important decision that you can make for your new ebusiness. The reason that most start up businesses make a mistake when purchasing their domain name is simple:

  • Buying a domain name is the first step many people take when starting a new ebusiness.


  • Studying why search engine optimization is so important might be number 47 on your list of things to do.
The relevance of this is that the domain name itself happens to be of great importance for your keyword relevance for organic search engine placement. The domain name that you end up using for your online project will be one substantiated by hard data and market research. Without knowing how to conduct the proper research, or by relying on personal taste or lack of knowledge you could very easily make the mistake of choosing the wrong domain name for your new ebusiness. It is these catch 22 situations that can severely damage your efforts towards a successful and efficient start up online business - and Canadians will face more than a few of these along the way.



Protect Your Business Against The Biggest Time Waster

Before you start your business you absolutely must understand how selling online works, how to successfully market your website and a world of technical knowledge not easy to do since the only way to learn this information is to experience it first hand and through your own trial and error process. This vast majority of time spent developing a new online business can be lost in the trial and error of software applications in search of a functional and manageable interface that meets your cosmetic requirements as well as your technical skill level.

Jump start your new ebusiness with everything you need to know to join millions of people buying and selling online - without costly mistakes that ruin ANY CHANCE OF PROFIT before the doors to your business are open.



How To Guarantee A Successful eBusiness

The single most reliable way to ensure that your new business maximizes every ounce of its potential is to understand the total picture of what your ebusiness needs to accomplish and the most direct route to achieve this success.

Broken down into its basic elements the fundamental building blocks to a full ecommerce business solution are:
