If you are new to the internet market and putting your first step, you should proffer reading from here. If you already have your website and have existence on the internet, you can skip this step and move to the steps below.
First of all, you need to have a presence on the internet. In simple words, you must have a website to showcase your business, your work, your services, your products, your contact details, etc. .
For creating a website, you will require the following:
- Domain Name – A name which will be used to access your website, eg. example.com
- Hosting – Hosting account is used to host files of your website data. While purchasing a hosting account, you should not go for a cheaper one. Always opt for a good configuration. This will help your website in better load time, which will enhance your search engine listing.
- SSL – SSL is required to encrypt data you transfer from your end to your client’s end and vice versa. This adds another layer of security to your website, which will also be an add-on in your search engine listing. Many people suggest SSL as optional stuff. But I’ll suggest to take it as a mandatory one.
- Website Developer – Website developer will help you develop your website based on your requirements. You can take help from our team too.
Once you are done developing your website, it is suggested to move to different social websites. Creating business presence on different social networks enhances the reach ability of your business.
We recommend the presence on the following social platforms:
Once you are done with creating your bushiness’s social profile. You should now move on to the marketplace from where you can generate leads. This section comes in two parts, free and paid. Create your profile on lead generation websites based on the service or product you sell. Eg. If you are selling services related to event management, you should prefer setting up your account on eventpanda.in
We’ll suggest to setup at-least a free account on the below lead generation websites:
- Event Panda
- India Mart
- Google Business
- Yellow Pages
- Trade India
- Just Dial
Your social presence will create back-links for you, which will help your customers to reach back to your website where you have kept all your business details and products / services which you exactly want to sell / showcase.
You are don with your website development, your social media and search engine presence, now it’s time for your brand setup.
Generally, agencies dealing with your business marketing will help you setting up your brand. This is not too costly, and will help you generate your brand value in the global market.
You should start building your branding by setting up your professional / business email first. Eg. email@example.com. You should not be using a gmail or other common email address for your business emails.
There are freely available plans for emails with many good email service providers like Zoho. But take my words, you should not opt for a free email for your business, as it gives small attachment size, less number of email IDs and lot more limitations. While setting up stuffs for your business you should go for paid versions, as the come with lot of add-on features and higher availability.
Setting up your brand values include the best write-ups that describes your business, services, products, mission, vision, your terms & policies, etc.. You should setup proper documentation of your companies profile on your website and ensure that all the data is up to date with the version numbers of each updated document.
This helps build better brand value and faith between customers.
After building your brand value, it’s time to setup something for your manpower, your own organization’s working structure.
You can opt for setting up Corporate Resource Management (CRM) tools, Human Resource Management (HRM) tool, Accounting tools, etc., that will help you to manage the workforce and other tasks.
These tools are generally built with generic modules that will help your business to operate smoothly. But in some cases, your business can be different from others and require a different setup. For this, you can opt for getting custom software developed, which can help you manage your work as per your requirements and ease.
We know that all businesses are not the same, and may or may not require to go through all the above phases. There can be chances of different requirements and online shifting modules. So in this step we will talk about a few different modules, (and not limited to this), that a business may require.
- Online teaching / meeting / conferencing platform – There can be requirements of online video conferencing platforms for different purpose which may be required by different businesses.
- VPN Setup – Virtual Private Network setup may be a necessity of businesses who require an isolated network where the team can work together. Generally companies who build tools on intranet, (or can have different purpose), setup a virtual private network, which allows access to local network on internet through a very secure tunnel.
- RDP Setup – Remote Desktop Protocol is used to access remote desktop over internet. It is generally done when either the organization has provided dedicated systems to each employee and the employee needs access to the desktop from a remote location. Or in a scenario where a central server is used by team to work and access data.
There can be multiple other scenarios which can be involved to move your work online.
