Starting an Online Business Following a Plan!
The Sound Structure of Online Business...
An online business is not just a website!
It's an important point that I forcefully stress because if you think that it is, you'll be misunderstanding its
entire nature... and you'll be doomed for failure even before you start.
An online business is a real business... just like any other in all respects.
It's got processes that must be measured and controlled, performance targets that must be met, operating
functions that must be managed, and a phase of setup that must necessarily be undertaken.
It's here, when you're starting an online business that you'll put everything in place according to your plan to
create customer value as well as a sustaining profitability!
But don't let yourself be overwhelmed with the technical and details.
Just try building a simple business that delivers where it counts the most...
In building customer value!
Using Keywords to Execute Your Value Strategy.
Creating and delivering value starts at keyword level. They're the most important inputs to the most fundamental
aspects of online business like assessing supply and demand, optimization, traffic generation, etc...
And, if you're to execute your business's value strategy exactly as you've planned it, it's essential that you
understand how choosing the right keywords and keyphrases and using them properly will help you guide potential
customers to a certain perception of quality and value...
So effectively approaching
internet keyword selection to execute your value strategy is an essential part in developing your
Building Your Online Business's Presence...

That's what builds a sustainable presence on the web.

navigation, in your conversion process, and in content quality, depth, detail, and delivery.
Options for Monetizing Your Online Business.
What are the revenue-generating options and alternatives that make sense to you and your internet business?
Which ones should you include in your mix?
Do they help you drive value or provide new and unique experiences for customers?
When you're exploring
monetization and website revenue streams it's important to consider value and profitability for both you and

Linking Search, Traffic Generation, and Value.
Linking search and traffic generation is easy... what one has to do with the other is obvious...
This relationship between search and traffic is what usually gets the most attention and the one that is written
about the most.
Some bring value into the mix, but they're few and far between...
Where exactly does creating and delivering value fit in all this? Well... the role it plays is vital. That's the
way I see it, and I hope you'd agree to that too!
Building a stream of traffic that grows over time is the strict result of quality and value, not only marketing
savvy or technical prowess.
This is the way you build traffic naturally...
In a steady increase, not only in recurring short-lived spikes.
Search and value are vital issues in getting more
website traffic and are important concepts that you must understand for the continuous health and benefit of
your internet business.
Mapping Out the Total Conversion Process.
There's certainly a right way to guide customers from their initial landing on your websites to their first
purchase, which can lead to a second, third, and perhaps many others down the line...
