Topic: How to write a script for a play. easy
July 21, 2019 / By Blessing Question:
I am looking to start an online business. I've already got the idea of what i'm going to be selling and have even found distributors and looked over the products. How do I go about purchasing a domain and finding a web host? How much do these usually cost? How do I register my business? And, how do I go about accepting payments? Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Planning a budget is good, but not all you need to do. You should have a business plan.
Have you covered all of these items? Do you have all the permits (city, county, state and federal) that will be required of this type of business. Do you have your state and federal taxpayer id numbers. If you will be handling sales tax, do you have your account set up with the state. If you have employees, are you set up for handling the federal and state employment taxes. What bank do you plan to use as your depository for the federal payroll taxes. Have you checked to make certain that particular bank does perform that service. Do you have your account set up with your state unemployment department. Have you obtained your business liability insurance with sufficient coverage to protect you against the risks. Have you obtained your workman's comp. insurance. Will you be operating as a business entity, such as a corporation or limited liability company. to give you some limit to your financial exposure. If not, are you certain you do not need that protection. If you have set up an entity, is it all in order. You will be relying on this to protect your personal assets from business creditors; it must be in proper order. If it is a do it yourself or an on-line job, it may be worth less than you paid for when it comes time to protect you. Given your projected budget, do you have adequate capital resources available to carry the business for a period of months. Have you fully analyzed the projected receivables turn and are confident you have enough working capital to start with to carry the business. Have you done your research on viable forms of marketing or advertising. What sort of contingency plans do you have in case the first few months do not go as you expected. Without that, you could find yourself out of business before you really get a good start. Do you have your accounting system in place.
Just a few things that pop to mind, not intended as a complete well thought out list.
You have the right idea here. The only answer in the current climate is an online business where you don't have all the expenses of an offline business and basically you do it from home. You already have a computer and internet access so why not make money from them?
You will need some training to make your website SELL. This is quite an art form and also getting visitors to it is yet another art form.
This training is available in one place here:
This guy will teach you EVERYTHING you will need to know about websites, domain names, traffic to your site etc AND NOT ONLY THAT he'll show you how you can make some great money in the meantime.
Read ALL the page and watch the videos on it. You may be surprised at what's possible.

Hi there, I read a book a while ago by (Michael E. Gerber) called the E-Myth: Why Most Small Businesses Don't Work and What to Do About It . You might find this a useful read before starting and it's only a small book too. Cheers

I would like to suggest following webhosting which I use, they are excellent.
They offer hosting of "unlimited domains" and you will get massive webspace of 1500000 MB (1500 GB ). They only charge $5.95/month and they offer "a free Domain Name" and installing service called "Fantastico". By using Fantastico, you could create own forum, photo gallery, shopping cart (e-commerce),your own auction site and your own blogs within few seconds. They also offer "Free Website Builder" as well.

Well you should think of a name for the company and then register the name so no one steals it and to make sure no one else already has it. I think it costs around $100 to do that. Then you will want to start a bank account. You will probably need your parents for this. After that you should start a paypal account. Your going to need some capital (money to start the business). It all depends on what you plan to sell. Like what type of clothes. Are you going to make it or are you going to buy t-shirts and screen print them? Things like that. You should use free sites to start the advertising. Some good sites are:
Merchnow.com (not sure if it is free)
But you get the idea...you can start advertising in your school and by having your friends wear your stuff to get it out there.
Hopw I helped =].
