1. Identify your Niche and Target Market
The first and probably the most important step in starting a UK online business is to identify your niche. The niche is basically the business or activity which you are best suited for and which you would like to pursue as the means of making money online.
This should be followed by mapping out a target market. This is the specific group of potential consumers that your products or services should reach.
In time you will need to develop a business plan which essentially details your business goals, the feasibility of your business, and the strategies and steps you intend to take to reach your goals.
2. Register your Business
In many countries, it’s necessary to formally register a business, usually for taxation reasons. Depending on your product and size of your business, you may decide to start as a self-employed business, or perhaps as a limited company. A good accountant will be able to offer you advice on which is the best option for you as you develop your business.
