How to Make Money in Your Internet Business - eHow.com

Making money in an Internet business requires the same dedication and commitment you need to make money in any business. So stick with it, and you'll see profits in what seems like no time at all.
Steps:
1. Create and refine your business plan. An Internet business is no different from any other business, in that you need a plan to establish goals and strategies for success.
2. Design your Web site. Use eye-catching layouts and graphics, but keep it as simple as possible. Your primary concern when designing your site should be ease of use for your customers.
3. Make sure you're in compliance with local regulations and ordinances. Even if you're running your business from your home, you might still need to be licensed and insured to meet the requirements of your county or city.
4. Promote your business. Register with search engines, and exchange banner ads and links with businesses complementary to yours. Advertise online and offline.
5. Pay attention to the quality of your customer service. Do you offer varied methods of payment and a secure ordering process? Do you guarantee your products or services and provide a simple return procedure? Put the convenience of your customers first, and you'll quickly develop the customer loyalty that is a key to success.
6. Mind the details. Keep accurate financial, sales and inventory records so that you always know whether your business is turning a profit.
Tips:
Review your business plan periodically and revise it as necessary. Opportunities on the Internet abound, so you might find yourself going in various directions before you establish the long-term goal that's right for you.
Be wary of ads that, for a fee, promise to guide your Internet business to overnight success and riches. Building any business, online or offline, requires hard work and time. There's plenty of free information available on the Internet, so invest your money in your business rather than a get-rich-quick scheme.
When designing your Web site, consider consulting a professional. What seems like a large cash outlay for a professional service might seem like peanuts next to the income you'll never see if your Web site isn't inviting and customer-friendly.
Find out where your local and state governments stand on sales tax. You'll probably only have to collect sales tax when you provide goods or services to customers within your state, but check for yourself before you start doing business.
Warnings:
Local and state regulations might seem to be just a bureaucratic step you can skip, especially if you feel "untouchable" doing business from the relative isolation and security of your home. But the fines that can be levied against you for not doing business legitimately can put a serious dent in the profits you've worked so hard to accumulate.
