Internet Adventures

Who knew starting an online business would be so strenuous, but not at the same time? A friend of mine approached me with the idea of helping him start an online business to sell car audio equipment. I’ve been doing a little bit of research and it’s easier than I thought to get all of the paper work to start the business. The hard part is going to be organizing the website, which I would be putting together and advertising. Does anyone have any advice?

  1. It is tough, make sure your site is clean, not cluttered, and attractive looking. Keep in mind your target audience and keep an easy navigation scheme, If you have any further questions just message me on AIM or myspace, or i think this gives you my email.

    Oh and keep in mind with the advertising that you may want to use local venders as advertisers on your site. If you are looking for ways to advertise google, offers the AdWords program, which all you need is a google account and a daily spending limit.

    The cheapest form of advertising is “Word of Mouth”, basically passing it around to friends and family. Also a great tool to take advantage of is MySpace and Facebook. Currently a project I started with my room mates is a site for Musical Artists. Set-lists.com and we have used facebook and myspace to get a hold of a number of our artists and reach not only our target audience but potential advertisers and networking agents as well.

    Enjoy!

  2. Andrew, thank you so much for your advice! I had no clue about the Google AdWords program, which I am sure will come in very useful.

    Good luck with your endeavors.

  3. no problem, there are other useful tools that google has as well, best thing to do is go to google.com and then on the bottom of the page it says “Business Solutions” it will give you a list of the other services it has as well, like i mentioned I have used AdWords and the Analytics, and they proved to be useful.

    anyfurther questions you know where to find me 🙂

    – Take care, goodluck end of semester coming and finals!
