Starting and operating an Internet business is surprisingly similar to operating any other business.  Good business practices, like building the confidence of customers through truthful advertising, providing products and services at a fair price, and developing long-term business relationships, are as applicable to Internet businesses as they are to any other businesses.

The Idea and Start-up Plans

This is the most important step of all!  Without a good concept, a good product, good services or good content, anything else you do is a waste of time.  So what should you look for here?

If you already have a business off the Internet (in the “real world”), this is the logical place to start.  However, we do not recommend that you stop there.  So many businesses launching websites view the Internet as just another place they need to advertise.

Their websites tend to be little more than what are known in cyberspace as “Brochure Websites.”  They simply replicate print advertisements and brochures.  While these sites are not totally worthless, they fail to take advantage of the unparalleled opportunities afforded by the new technologies online.

The Internet is fast becoming the busiest business district the world has ever known. However, having a web site should be more than reproducing existing advertising. It should mean taking full advantage of the Internet’s capability of interactive shopping and globally convenient access. Your web site can be the perfect showcase for people to obtain information about your company and products, an efficient way of communicating with your present clients, potential customers and an international marketplace to sell your products and services.

If you do not have an existing business, you should still look for ideas first in areas where you already have some expertise.  If your current expertise does not seem to lend itself to an online business opportunity, your next plan should be to spend some significant time learning about the businesses already operating online.  Once you have an understanding of what is available, look for ways to do the same things in a better way or look for a market niche that has not been serviced well.  Keep in mind that there are almost always ways to improve upon existing services and products.
