These are good to-the-point bullet statements. An attractive design and aesthetic-pleasing layout (for websites, business cards, page layouts, etc.) are key to luring in curious wanderers. Of course, I work in a law office so we go for very simple and plain layouts. However, when checking other websites, I am more attracted to modern and good looking sites. It’s sad to say, but many people judge books–and businesses–by their covers.
A very great post.

Nice post this shows how a business establishment can be done slowly and take care of it by using hardwork.Also a similarity is showed that hardwork is to be done in both service and in business.Thanks for sharing tips.

Hi Valentine, I really love your points about choosing a domain name. I think a lot of business owners will try to use their family name or pick something that is hard for most people to remember. It is really helpful when the name of the business can be related back to the product or service that is being offered. Great post and best wishes in the contest!

Patience and Hard work is needed in all the business and all kind of work. However today competition is large in every era and ever one has to do his best.
I also agreed with Valentine, with efforts atleast base of the online business i.e domain should be on brand name.

I can’t agree more with you on this one that hard work, risk, dedication and determination are required to build reputation and business. These are some great pointers that you have mentioned. We are running our small business from 4 years and it is working quite well. We have 3 websites and all are doing pretty good. Thanks for this informative share.

The thing that most turns me off about websites is ones that give several pop-up ads and are slow to load. I am out of those within seconds of arrival-you have indeed mentioned some valuable points here-ones that every website designer must conform to for small/medium as well as large businesses.

The reasons provided by you for the slow business are quite apt. When doing business online, it is imperative to make use of a good and informative website, but many small businesses completely forget about the quality website. In my opinion having a quality and impressive website is more important than having a website. If the website is boring and lack the necessary information, the web presence will always remain nil. Thanks for sharing such helpful tips.

I had an online store once but the sales wasn’t good…I think it was probably because of my poor sales pitch! I can do design and seo but I can’t do powerful copywriting that makes people want to buy my products! Will definitely take a look at the resources that you have shared…thanks!

I like how 3 of the problems have to do with design. Bad design can cause potential customers or clients to move away from your business just because the look is displeasing.

If you want to start a new business, you’d definitely want to create a business name that is not only catchy but is also unique from the competition.
After all, coming up with a unique and catchy business name will help you outshine the others. Making your business easily memorable will also work wonders for you.
Be creative and customers will more likely consider your business for getting the products or services they need.
Thank you so much for great sharing.
