 Week 1. How To Start Online Business with Netcetera.

Right guys, I’m sure we’ve all sat up and took note of how successful some of these new Online Businesses have become, Uber, Tinder, Eventbrite and many more. I’d love to have a go at starting an online business from scratch. Yep… that’s right, from idea, right the way through to attracting clients, sponsors and potentially advertising and turning the idea into something viable. To make it that little bit more challenging I’m not really a tech person which could be like doing the Tour de France on a BMX, not impossible, but not what you want to be really doing.  Pinterest Graphic – Tips Week3

I’ve had a few ideas and I’ve created a few businesses previously, and made some big mistakes. Some would say failures, but I call them lessons. We’ve heard it said plenty of times, but a fail is the first attempt in learning. 

I’ve set a business up from scratch in Ghana, developing a market, catching malaria (not recommended) and having to converse in Twi. Not easy but we never gave up and achieved what we wanted to do. I’ve sold water filters and glazing and I’ve built a park. Building an online business, well this will be a challenge.

I can’t give too much detail yet, partly because I’m not sure what it will be. I’ve looked at creating an auction site but that’s sort of been done. I thought about ordering takeaways online but that’s been done too. I also had this great idea for a shared ride scheme where people could offer lifts like a taxi, but low and behold someone is now doing this too. I’ve played with the idea of a dating app too but that one brought about suspicion from my wife so I’ll park that idea for now.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be looking at the following :   

Join in with the fun as we learn about all the tech stuff, searching out the online tools that make life easier and getting to grips with promoting a new business through all the social media platforms.

Sounds interesting ? I hope it’s going to be, because it’s me that has to do it. All you guys need to do is follow, share and comment as we set out on this journey to create the next Ebay. (ok maybe not Ebay)

Join Our Journey

If you’ve got a great business idea and you’re looking for some help to launch it to the next level why not get in touch to see how we can help you take the next step.
