Overtime, I have heard and seen people say, “how can I start online business?”
A number of youths today are looking for a new product or service that no one is selling or doing, so they can now use that as their businesses.
Chances are, you will never find.
Below,. I highlighted simple steps you can follow to be successful online.
- Find a need and fill it.
Everyday, people are looking for a solution to a problem; skill or products. By visiting forums, like here on Nairaland, you can find what people are looking for most and provide it.
- Write copy that sells.
After discovering what people are looking for and making yourself the solution (service) or providing the solution (products), next thing is to create an awareness.
Create a compelling or catchy headline and show very nice designs of stuffs you sell or service you provide. If possible add testimonials of your “Happy Clients.”
You will need logo and flyers for this.
