Hi and welcome to Grow a Biz Online.
I’m Vicki the Founder of Grow a Biz Online and in this blog, I am going to share what I consider the 5 Best Strategies to build a successful online business and I hope it helps you see what I did it as I have 4 online businesses and all of them are very successful.
If you are starting out, great, you will have ideas running through your mind and you most likely have your business idea so you have already to move to step 2.
If you are new to the online world, I wish you success and fun building your online business and hope by reading this article, you will learn some of the key strategies to building an online business
No1. Firstly I want you to write a list of all the things you enjoy, things that could help people with their buying decisions, or a new skill you could teach or a sports product you have used and could recommend and so much more when you choose what type of business you want to build
Website and Domain name
No 2. When choosing a domain name please take your time as you really want to choose a name relative to your business and not only that, you will also be best to buy a dot-com domain name as all the search engines prefer dot com and of course dot net is more for an organization so if this is what you want to build then dot net is a great move.
Research Google for any words relative to the type of business you are going to build for example
Your niche is Basketball Shoes and Basketball Shoes dot – com will already be taken so Google Basketball shoes and check out the results as this help you when you are choosing a great name.
Also try to not to have hyphens in between each word as the search engines prefer this as well as it looks better without hyphens 🙂
Building your website is easy if you are in a platform that is state of the art and has everything you need so please join me inside Wealthy Affiliate where you can get a website build for under 60 seconds.
You have now got your domain name and a website. Now you are going to need a theme that suits what your business represents
In the platform I use Wealthy Affiliate, there are over 3000 themes to choose from so if you are starting an eCommerce store online there is a theme for this with all the plugins and extras you need to get moving.
Word press themes are great to use and they update automatically as well within the platform.
No 3. There is also a special features button so you can tick the boxes you want in your theme and click search and you will have some themes suitable to choose from – I love this about WordPress.
Training in all Areas
OK, You have your Domain name, your theme and you have built your website so now what?
If you are an advanced website builder you may or may not need this but for anyone new to this subject then you will want to get some training to learn how to get indexed, how to build your site up with content and how to do all the things you need to build a solid foundation for your new business so I hope you consider joining Wealthy Affiliate for free so you can have a look inside to see what I’m talking about.

This is where the tricky technical strategy comes in and this is the last strategy out of the 5 you need for a successful online Business and I hope I have shared enough for you to make a really great decision to do it the right way and become closer to success online by using these strategies I have shared with you
Back to the techy stuff- I love the fact that Wealthy Affiliate does it all for me as when I decided to build my business I had no idea about all the technical jargon or how to do this and now I do.
Google analytics, how to do Social Media correctly to get noticed, how to write awesome content, keywords and how using these correctly will get you indexed and ranking in the search engines and not just floating in cyberspace which is essential for success online and so much more.
You will get all this 🙂
