A great idea will only take you so far...you have to also execute well in order to grow and sustain your business for long-term success.
Here are 4 tips for running a successful online business:
1. Be yourself when trying to sell…creating a personal connection with your customers is the best approach so write your product descriptions with your own voice and tell your story to connect on a personal level.
2. Create a to-do list that you can accomplish…crossing off the tasks each day will actually make you more productive, plus it just feels great!
3. Respond to your customers in a timely fashion when they have questions or complaints so they know they're being take care of and be transparent so you build a personal connection with them.
4. When a good idea comes to mind, make sure you either act on it immediately or write it down so you can act on it later. Just because you launched your business with one good idea doesn't mean you can't grow it with several others so listen to your customers and keep the creative juices flowing!
