Why Do Most Online Small Businesses Fail?
Search Engines account for almost 90% of all web traffic!
In the Offline world its all about "location, location, location."
Put your business were people crowd around and your set. Have your products ready and benefit the rewards.
Online, small businesses fail to act on the fact that the fundamental reality of how people use the Web is totally different. No one "passes by".
People are searching for information that you know.
To build an Online Business, give them the answere...
Yes, Start where they start...Build Content. Turn your knowledge into revenue.
The biggest mistake people make in life is not making a living at doing what they most enjoy - Malcolm S. Forbes (1919 - 1990)
Traffic is the most important next step that makes or breaks your online business. Keyword - focused content attracts targeted Traffic by Search Engines.
The next step is to Presell interested visitors. Interested visitors become warm, willing-to-buy prospective customers because you overdeliver what they seek...information and solutions.
After the content, traffic and presell you must monetize, only after you achieve these three.
This process, logical, natural, powerful, and based upon the fundamental reality of the way people use the Web, is the foundation no matter what kind of small business you are (or want to start).
So to summarize:
-Create In-Demand Content
-Attract targeted traffic
-Presell those visitors
-Then Monetize presold traffic
Provide information about something you know. Just build content. From that point on everything flows until...resold traffic generates profits. Guaranteed. Yes, this process guarantees success, while most small online businesses fail miserably.
It's so simple. Not 'easy' (real business takes some work)...it's simple.
