To get business started online, every company should identify the products that they can sell online for a particular country or for countries worldwide. If you are a freelancer, then you need to identify how you are going to sell your products online.

Generally Companies target the users who belong to a particular country. The first thing that a company needs is a website. For commercial usage, .com are the best sites. Some companies even prefer .in,.eu etc. Educational institutes select .edu and government organizations select .gov. Once they purchase the domain name from domain registrars, they start their business operations online.

Building business website

Once businesses have their website, the next thing that needs to be developed is the design of the website.

For freelancers who provide writing services, design services, programming services, they just need a blog where they can easily start sharing their skills and integrate with tools like paypal.
