Starting an online business requires thorough planning and adequate research. Information about industries and niches is available online; however, accessible info usually offers little practical value, while concise information is subscription-based.
Hostcomp was founded in response to expensive educational programs and training courses, offering well-researched info based on personal experience of the brand’s founder, Patrick Heim, who stated:
“Online, you can find an overwhelming amount of know-how and facts. But the problem is these texts often contain only little useful information while the only purpose is to get web traffic. For me, it’s important to write articles in-depth and with helpful insights while providing valuable know-how.”
The easiest way to build a website is via WordPress (or similar drag & drop apps, plugins, and widgets). WP is intuitive and very easy to use in addition to being highly customizable with a large variety of plugins and themes. Hostcomp made a selection of the best WordPress Themes for beginners and professionals on the brand’s Website.
Well-designed sites do not archive popularity and attention by default – a solid marketing strategy is needed. Combining social media presence with non-intrusive ads, reaching a specific target audience while utilizing Google’s SEO (search-engine-optimization) are some of the most prominent elements of a good marketing strategy, all of which are discussed in Hostcomp’s Online Marketing section.
After gaining traction with the target audience, the business needs to deliver the final product/service. Selling digital products online, choosing the right pricing strategy, and integrating e-commerce shops into the brand’s site are the final steps of a successful entrepreneur/business.
Businesses can generate income in a variety of ways aside from selling their products and services. Contributing blog posts and using affiliate links are ideal methods for fresh businesses to increase their budget.
“Helping and motivating people is what a business should be about, not the profit it makes. It isn´t about the money I make but to solve a problem people are having in the online business world.”
