start-upHave you ever thought of making and developing an on line business? What steps would this entail? We are going to take a quick look at this and see if it is a viable start up.

First, you need an idea of what product will sell and it must be something the public wants or needs. This requires time and skill. Then you will need a domain and it must be registered in your name, next design and build your website and use search engines to drive targeted buyers to the site.

Now while this sounds easy it does not guarantee that it will work, however it has worked for lots of people and some have done quite well.

One site that is just in the budding stage is rollawaybed.net – this website was started about one year ago and has grown slowly over the past several months. The website not only covers the roll away bed with informative and in depth articles, but also reviews the most popular beds as well.

Now you may wonder how they make their money. Well when a person goes to their website to read an article they can, if they choose, click on a link to Amazon or any other affiliated site where the beds are sold. If they buy a product from Amazon you make a commission on the amount of the purchase.

So a lot depends on how good your website is and the need for your product. While this particular site is still in progress another site that was just a budding project that went on to become a multi billion dollar site is Amazon.com

Amazon was founded by a technology entrepreneur named Jeffery Preston Bezos. Jeffery started out with 20 initial ideas and narrowed it down to one – books.

He thought books were the best idea as they are not only reasonably priced but there’s a universal demand. His parents supplied the start up money and he began selling the books on line from his garage.

Within two months Amazons sales were rising and the company expanded and continued to expand and is now the largest internet based retailer in the world.

While this is definitely a great success story not everyone will achieve such a successful venture. It takes hard work, perseverance, an excellent idea and some initial start up money to aid in making a dream come true.
