One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to get your business online free is through a blog. WordPress offers a free service that you can use to get your business online with a blog. However you will need to register a domain name and hosting. Goddady.com charges only $9.99 to register one. Visit WordPress.org on Google. Follow the easy steps, set up a blog for your business and place it online.
A blog can look and feel exactly like a normal website and, hence, it is not necessary to initially spend a large sum of money for a professionally designed website. The biggest difference between a blog and a website is that blogs have regular articles. Make your blog (that looks and feels like a normal website) interesting with free articles that are related to your products. If, for example, you’re selling a weight-loss product, simply type in “royalty free articles weight loss” into Google and you’ll find hundreds of articles.
If you want to join the online platform, WordPress has made things easier for small business owners, by providing a free business tool to promote their products online. Currently there’re more than 500 million blogs about anything you may think of. If you don’t have a clue how to create one, you can visit Amazon.com, search for Amazon Kindle Books, you will find more than 20 topics about blog creation.
However, if you need an advanced tutorial how to create a blog, I suggest you join membership site. Site members all have developed their own 2 or more blog sites. They will teach you how to develop and maintain a fully search engine optimized one. But that comes with a price.
Membership sites charge monthly membership fee. To become a member you will need to complete a subscription form and provide your credit card in order for them to process your membership fee. These sites are investment of some kind, because not only they provide site creation training but they also teach you how to build online business and range of other training tutorials. You don’t need to operate online business on your own, you also need support of some sort.
Without online support, you will fall prey of all sorts of internet scammers, people who will offer you outrageous promises. They always search online for newbies like you, who doesn’t have skills to run business online. In a nutshell, you don’t have to be scared to build a blog of your own. It’s easy you can build it through WordPress. org.
Since you want to run your business online freely, I want to give you some free tips on how to go about creating it. Firstly most small business owners believe that once they have a platform to communicate with online community, it’s the end of the game. Everyone will gladly visit and engage with it. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. There are two most important aspects that will kill or grow your blog audience
- Who are your customers (target audience)
- What problem do you want to solve in your blog.
Not everyone is interested in your blog content. People ask themselves what is in there for them. Who are your potential customers with problems? Does your blog provides solutions to them. These are the basic questions people ask before spending their precious time visiting your blog. Nonetheless you can run your business free online with it.
