Over the past six months, we have covered many of the aspects that, in our experience, you will need in order to be successful in setting up a business.

Let’s briefly remind ourselves of the major themes we have talked about:

1, Personal Development.  Time after time, we meet people who are struggling either in setting up a business or growing it or, in many cases, making sure their business survives.  We also meet many people who are not only running a successful thriving business but seem to be enjoying the experience.  We are not saying they never meet challenges, of course they do.  They seem able to overcome these problems and move forward.

Lesson #24 - Yes...Your Site Can Make Additional Money Too | Setting Up A Business

aff marketing for setting up a businessA fundamental part of setting up a business that can be super successful is to make sure you have multiple, associated income streams.

But what if one of these multiple, associated income streams, is able to make money for you while you are asleep?

Imagine how great it would be to be generating £500… £1,000… £5,000 ‘cash in the bank’ each and every month, for just a little upfront work.  That would be helpful while setting up a business, right…?

These days this is absolutely possible and, as well as building your income streams, it can also enhance ‘your brand value’ with your customers.  With a little careful planning, you can raise the profile of your business with your customers and be seen to be even more help, even more professional, even more valuable to them.  That has to be good… yes?

So…how do we do it and, how can you start doing it too?

Lesson #23 - Build Your Money List | Setting Up A Business

List Building Image for Setting Up A BusinessOne of the key aspects in growing or setting up a business is the building of your own, highly targeted, list of prospects and customers.

There’s a well known phrase that sums this up perfectly…

“The money is in the list…”

It’s time to become very familiar with this saying, if you are not already.

It’s completely true and yet, believe it or not, the vast majority of SME businesses today don’t have a complete data capture system in place.  Worst still, some businesses don’t have a data capture system at all!  It really is a fundamental part of setting up a business properly.

It always amazes me just how many businesses miss this vital growth step out all together.  If you are setting up a business or growing an existing business ‘your list’ is one of the keys to your success.

Boring Blogger Image for Setting Up A BusinessThe objective of writing this lesson is to give you some guidelines when you come to write your blogs.  Whether you are setting up a business or growing an existing business this advice is based on the fact that you have two customers.  The first one is, of course, Google’s SEO.

To satisfy this chap, you need to have several blog posts, several categories and as many links between them as possible.  We have mentioned the most effective way to achieve SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) in previous lessons, including using the Socrates theme on WordPress and using SEOPressor.

To keep Google happy, you also need to keep adding new, top quality, back-links to your blog (see Paul’s Back-links) and to keep both customers happy, you need to write fresh, interesting posts.
