Build a Successful Online Business: 5 Must-Know Steps
As an author / writer, you sell your books and/or services. This means you are in business.
You may not think of yourself as a business person or solopreneur, but you are.
So, now that you realize you are in business, how do you make your online business successful?
Below are the top 5 steps to building a successful online business.
1. You’ve got to plan your way there. And, you’ve got to have vision.
2. I’ve been talking about this one for years now. You’ve got to have a website.
3. You’ve got to build authority. People need to believe you’re the ‘go to’ person for information or engagement.
4. You’ve got to build social proof. Show others that other people see your value.
5. You need to be involved in social media.
6. Bonus Tip: Focus is key.
