1: Have an Idea

Yes ideations are the key but not everything, when you have an idea but LACK ACTIONS, such an idea no matter how beautiful and great it is will surely becomes nothing, so have an idea and match it with action for action is everything

Yes having an idea is a place to start, your idea may not be clear at first, come to talk of it Facebook was not clear at first to Mark, but he was able to put his idea into action

Have an Idea

His main idea at first was to create a social forum for his course mate back then in the college, but check out what he now has, The Facebook and have also been able to buy up other people ideas and inventory such as Instagram, WhatsApp, and many other extensions that makes Facebook great today

 

What am saying is simple, when you have an idea, don’t wait for perfection to start, find a way and start, even if it means you starting poorly, that is not a cause for worry

What matters is after you have started, are you progressing, that is what matters, so while putting your ideas into action make room to always check your progress

 

Take off things that do not bring in good results, and work more on things that bring on good results. hope the ‘6 Things You Need To START Professional Online Business’ tips one being IDEATION is well understood? so let proceed

 

2: Take Action

I don’t know if you have ever remembered things you never did and the time comes, maybe months later, or even years later you find yourself regretting not taking action on such

For example. When I was in school during my first degree IN THE University, I have the idea to develop an eCom just like Jumia

 

First, I have the knowledge, the programming skill to develop the ecom web and mobile app then, I have marketing skills, but I don’t have the needed finance to run a nationwide ecom project like Jumia.

 

Back them eCom Jumia, Konga has not taken over the market, in fact, we are even the first people that grow Jumia to what it is today, with our importation business course and internet marketing skill we were working for Jumia directly

So back to my story, then to start an ecom, you need to define your box offices, at least you will need to have offices in all the geo-Political zoon in Nigeria

You need to employ people to handle the affairs of these offices, you need delivery men or women, so you need bikes, etc. that was how it was so hard then not as easier it’s today 

 

As having a boss office and employing your company delivery system is no longer mandatory, you can use other people’s courier service and even box office today, but that was what keep me off from starting back then

Of cause, business ideas fade off if you fail to act, with time it failed off, and today each time I remember such I felt bad, but in all I still thank God

So you see, taking action is so important, action is what determines if your idea will have a successful result or a fail, but in case of a fail, there is always room to get up and try again

 

3: Have a business plan

I know you have come across the saying, if you fail to plan you have already plan to fail, that is it, you must plan, you must put your idea into plans, you action into execution with effective steps on things to do and things no to do 

 

So people believe that planning of business is for some few, not applicable into them, there also have this saying that planning for business is an outdated myth no longer needed

 

You see, the truth I tell you, having a business plan still work, still as important as you go into the high institution with a clear view of what you plan to achieve in four or five years of studies

Putting them down and working in line with your school lay down curriculums from your year one to your final years to achieve this common goal

So is needed, that you have a business plan from week one to months and even yearly plans, have a target where you will love to see your online business in the next two to five years

 

You most not necessary put up all the plans by yourself, if you have the money to hire others to do the planning for you, then be glad to make such a move

Hire Business consultantsAngel investors, and online business experts to attribute to your business by adding their professionalism

 

I can tell you for free that it is not and will never be a waste of time and investment on your part, as you will have one or two things more clearly understood, moreover you stand a better chance of learning new things

 

You must appreciate every business person, be it online or offline with years of experience, most importantly in your business field, that if you can, will also advise you consult them for advice

Having a business plan also opens up to you knowing your place to start, even if it means starting small, with time you have a clear view of what to add to your business and what to remove or best change, adjust if need be

 

4: Know your target market

Knowing your target market is the same as understanding your online business niche, have a clear idea of who your customers are, the things they love, where they hang out online such as the website they mostly spend time on, their network, and many others

Know your target market

The most important thing to every online business is having profits because when you fail on having profit your online business will easily fail out of business

And to have profit, you must define your market audience, you must take your online business product or service to where they are, you should be promoting to them, then engaging with them which will lead to sales and profits

 

value system is another, you need to go for people who need the value you are providing, your business should define its value system

Understand it and take it product or service to those that need such values, by so doing you will have a lot of people buying from you, patronizing your services as well.
