THINGS NEEDED TO START AN ONLINE BUSINESS

Welcome to lesson # 4, If you’re still reading them I’m assuming that you really want to start an online business or perhaps you’re already running one. So today let’s talk about what you need to have in order to start an online business.

Is it just about having an internet connection and the desire to succeed? Well starting an online business is one of the most affordable business model you’ll ever come across, however there are a few thing that you’ll need to have. I created a list of those things bellow.

1/ YOU NEED A COMPUTER
A computer is a fundamental component, and I guess you already knew that. The computer doesn’t have to be the latest model on the market nor does it need to be ridiculously powerful. the task of an internet marketer only require simple things like checking emails, using spread shits, editing web pages, browsing the internet, creating document and more things of that nature. So if you currently own a computer at home then you’re ready to go on that one.

2/ YOU NEED A RELIABLE INTERNET CONNECTION
If you’re going to run your business online the you obviously need a connection to the internet. A high speed connection is must. Yes it’s a little more expensive that dial-up but it’ll save you enormous frustrations when trying to get simple things done like viewing or downloading a video.

3/ YOU NEED AN ANTI VIRUS AND MALWARE PROTECTOR FOR YOUR COMPUTER
I recommend ones you can directly download from the merchant rather than wait 7 to 10 business days for a CDrom to be mailed to you for download. Whether you’re doing business or not a protected computer is a must.

4/YOU NEED AT LEAST 2 EMAIL ACCOUNTS
The first one personal and the other one business. I personally have 10 email account to run my online business and that’s because I do multiple things. 2, 3 should be enough to run a business online and the best place to go for such accounts is https://accounts.google.com/SignUp

5/ YOU NEED START UP CAPITAL
I’m not going to insult you’re intelligence by saying that you’ll make a boat load of money without spending a dime. Businesses have expenses and an online business is no different, however the low start up capital needed consider the income potential the internet has to offer makes it a minimal risk business model. Having $500 available right away to get started is more than enough and the rest is then basically scaled up to a full time type of income from there.

6/YOU NEED A BANK CARD, CREDIT CARD OR A PREPAID CARD
One of the card mentioned above is necessary so you can actually conduct business from one party to another and grow. So many web based services these days only accept card…the time you could just mail a check for many of the services are gone.

7/ YOU NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT
You could do business online without it, but you’d be in a great disadvantage. As a merchant you’ll need to accept payment from third parties and Paypal is the most widely used payment processor on the internet.

8/ YOU NEED A WEBSITE OR BLOG
