There are thousands of people who want to start their online business and make a profit from it to have an additional source of income alongside their job or as their sole source of income. However, many people don't know how to start an online business properly. That's why I decided to provide you with the most important steps necessary to start a successful online business in this article.

The first step is to build a fan base that will help you develop your business and increase your profits

You will begin to put the content online

You have to create distinctive content and publish it on several sites such as Instagram, YouTube, blogger and any part of the content will give it value, but you shouldn't expect anything in return, this step is simply to attract the audience and give value to build a fan base for your business, it is just to build trust between you and the crowd

In the second step and after creating an audience, you need to identify what that audience is interested in and start learning a monetizable skill

For example let me say that your target audience are Email marketers so you have to learn email validation and how to manage your funnel and how to use ads and other email marketing skills that you can learn at the beginning and sell them later to your audience so you should choose a skill you can monetize

In the third step, you have to provide your service for free to people, not for free in the literal sense, but what you have to do is to send your service via an email to many people, and therefore when these people see your work and see that all these wonderful things that you do that you provide for free, they can contact you again so you can work with them and so on

That will help you gain other clients for free and then you start building your reputation and start getting some reviews and testimonials

In the fourth step, you should create a business gallery that contains all your work that you provide, customer reviews, and others so that you gain credibility and authority for yourself and your business, which allows you to communicate with another person and start selling your service

The fifth step is to convert your free offer into a paid service and you switch to the independent websites and start offering your service as a paid service

In the sixth step, even though you have built a fan base, and even though you have your own business gallery, you won't only sit and wait for customers, no, but you will have to start promoting your services again to new audiences and clients so you can use email, you can also make paid Advertisements If you have the budget to do so, but I think communication mails and private messages are the best way to romote services

The seventh step is simply to transform your service into a product. This way you can expand your business and develop the way you work and thus evolve from an independent agent who sells and provides services to an integrated business

For example, you can build a digital marketing agency and help manage Google ads and social media packages and sell the package completely, you can also create a training course related to the service that you provide and sell online, and therefore in this step you are converting your service into a real product and selling it

In the eighth step, you make your business completely automatic. After you expand your business, you hire people to do the work for you, so you focus on more research about expansion and doing other things


Building an online business is a goal for everyone who want to work online so in this article I gave you some steps that will help you to be successful in your work and to achieve your goals
