To boost your success opportunities, start with a market. The trick is to find a group of people who are searching for a solution to a problem, but not finding many results. The internet makes this kind of market research easy:

Visit credible online forums to see what questions people ask and what types of problems they are trying to solve

Do keyword research to find keywords that a lot of people are searching, but don't have a ton of competition with other sites.

Check out your potential competitors by visiting their sites and taking note of what they're doing to fill your business demand. Then you can use what learnt and create a product for a market that already exists or innovate a new product that meet the needs of the market

Step 2: Make it Legal & Register Your Business!

There are a few steps you’ll have to take to make sure your business is legal. While generally speaking, the same rules apply to online businesses as brick-and-mortar businesses, there are a few subtle differences.

Read up on online business regulations

The most important distinction when it comes to doing business online versus in person is online business law. These laws regard the distribution of your customer’s personal information, as well as other privacy and intellectual property regulations. 

Register your business

Decide how you want to set up your company’s legal structure. Lots of businesses opt to form an LLC, but do your research to figure out which is best for you.

Learn about tax obligations for running an online business

Do you operate your business from your home? If you run an online business, it’s likely. As such, you may be eligible for certain tax deductions. You’ll additionally be required to pay income tax, so before setting up your online business, it may be a good idea to consult with a lawyer and make sure that you’re all covered going forward.

Once you have gotten your market and products, and you have generally  nailed down your selling process, now you're ready for your small-business web design. 

Remember to keep it simple. You have fewer than five seconds to grab someone's attention -- otherwise, they're gone, never to be seen again. 

Outsourcing web development is one of possible solutions while building a website or web application. Whether you can’t afford hiring your own team or don’t want to do it yet, it gives you an access to experienced developers.

Outsourcing may be beneficial to you regardless of your business’ size. Whether you are a solo founder, a small business owner or a CEO of a large company, the main advantages of outsourcing are almost the same.

The internet changes so fast that one year online equals about five years in the real world. But the principles of how to start and grow a successful online business haven't changed at all. If you're just starting a small business online, stick to this sequence. If you've been online awhile, do a quick review and see if there's a step you're neglecting, or never got around to doing in the first place. You can't go wrong with the basics.
