What are you looking for?
There is a great deal of things that are trending today, and some of us just can’t keep up with today’s trends. You can do a simple Google search and find the top 10, 50, or 100 trending things that are happening.
You can search for top trending fashion accessories, or top 50 songs, and these searches are almost instant.
The question still remains what are you looking for? Do you think you’ll find the answer from a simple search, probably not going to be that easy?
These days’ people are led by the masses to what is hip, and they will spend their money in that way. So, if you are looking to help your online business you will certainly want to pay attention to the current trends on whatever you are trying to promote on your website.
Find your niche with trends.
Now perhaps you have an idea you want to build a website around for your consumers, and you have targeted the trending item(s) that you want to promote.
Finding the right niche for you can be tedious because maybe you don’t feel passionate about a great many things, or the stuff you are passionate about is already very popular.
Take your time when deciding on a niche, because you don’t want write about things that you have no interest in, as it will likely show in your writing.
Good, I’m glad you have found what you are looking for and are ready to jump ahead to getting started on promoting, but you may be thinking how do I get my website ranked in Google, Bing, or Yahoo?
It’s not as difficult as it sounds, first you will want to do a keyword search to find the best set of keywords to name your website, and the appropriate set of keywords to use for your article on whatever you have chosen.
It really is quite simple once you get used to the process of prepping to promote your desired trend, and you already know if it’s trending than there are customers out there looking for your product.
Great you have started developing.
By now, hopefully you have found your trend, and began building your site and relevant content to get going. Of course you want to monetize your site to get the full potential from the site.
Have you possibly found affiliate companies that you can work with to get your product out there? If you haven’t than you can do searches for the product you want to promote, and find companies that offer the affiliate opportunities.
Perhaps this is a product you want to sell yourself, and if that is the case than you may want to find either wholesalers, or drop ship companies that you can work with to get the product to your consumers.
Hoping you are getting all the information that you need from these companies to better promote their (your) product. Some of these companies you may have to apply to become an affiliate with them, but others don’t require that.
Getting your store set up.
There are many platforms that will help you set up your online store, and most of them will offer you a system that is very easy to use.
Applications for your website are usually easy to find as well for your online store. Finding proper web hosting is one large part of it, and there are many companies out there that offer hosting and web page building platforms as part of your subscription.
There are even a few companies that will allow you to build a website for free, but be mindful it will likely be a sub domain if it’s free, and you will have a very difficult time getting it ranked by search engines.
You want to be ranked, because if you are ranked by the search engines than you have a chance of your website coming up early in the search results on Google, Yahoo, and Bing.
This ranking will also add natural traffic to your website as opposed to paying for advertisement on any of the aforementioned or the social media titans.
Free advertisement is always a good thing, unless it’s negative of course.
There are also applications offered through many of the web building platforms that help you with SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and often offer tools to help you get set up to be ranked in the various search engines.
Need help? Get help!
If you find yourself getting stuck there are a good number of tools and websites out there that offer help and training if you need it.
Already familiar with building websites, but you aren’t sure how to find the right niche? It can be difficult, but I would like to refer you to Wealthy Affiliate (WA).
They offer a large amount of resources that can help you find your way. I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and if you would like to read a bit more about them you can click the link to read my blog review on them.
There are other companies out there that can help educate you on these things, but a great many of them want a credit card just to get started with some basic information. Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t require a credit card to get started, and they offer 2 free websites with the free membership.
There are likely some other companies out there that offer some resources, but I find WA to be the best for a free membership.
Wrapping things up.
Your continued effort toward completing what you have set out to do is paramount, and if you don’t push yourself, than you may find yourself regretting not jumping on that trend.
If you find the right niche for you, and you locate the right company to work with as far as hosting. You are already miles ahead of some of your competition; don’t be afraid of the competition!
You are in the drivers seat, and how fast or slow you go is up to you.
If you have read this far than perhaps this sounds like the type of business that you want to get into.
Internet marketing isn’t for everyone, and not everyone can do it. Some people are too afraid to try to build that first website, because they think it will be too difficult for them to code a site.
That’s simply not the case anymore, if you can use a word processing program than you can build a website. Adding in the flashy art and links on your website that can be a little difficult, but you will get the hang of it in no time.
Don’t forget to brand your website, and make it yours! You don’t want to put out another cookie cutter style website, those are a dime a dozen.
Make the site yours! As always if you have any input to add about my blog posts feel free to comment below, or send me an email.
