10 Ways To Prove You're A Legitimate Online Based Business by importexpert(m): 3:25am On Dec 05, 2015
Good day Nairalanders. the last time i created a thread about my experiences so far in internet marketing a lot of nairalanders are motivated to go into business. i have prepare this to help soothen the path for them and all other Nairalanders that will love to go into internet marketing in the future..

When you've got a web based business your website is the only connection your potential customers have with you. They don't know if you can be trusted or even if you know what you're talking about. So how to prove that you're a legitimate business so that people will buy from you?


1. Supply Quality Information


When a visitor visits your website and sees that you supply high quality written content that is helpful to them they will be more likely to stay on your website for a longer period. They may also be encouraged to sign up to your email list to receive more information from you. take successdigestonline as a case study. i love spending time their because of the quality of the information they post.


2. Uncomplicated Website Navigation


If a website is complicated to navigate, your visitors will leave quickly. On the other hand, if your website is well structured and focused on the visitor's experience, then your prospects will see that you've put their needs first. take the simplicity of nairaland in to consideration. you have everything in front of you as soon as you visit the site and no hidden buttons cheesy

3. Offer A Guarantee

People will obviously be careful about buying a product or service from web based business that they know nothing about. But if you offer a full money back guarantee you get rid of any risk that the customer may have about purchasing from you. i know you are thinking that my Nigerian brothers will tend to abuse the money back guarantee but brother that is part of business. it adds to your credibility.


4. Provide Customer Feedback


Customer feedback goes a long way toward persuading prospects that you are a genuine web based business. Have a page on your website devoted to customer testimonials and feedback. one thing i know i am deeply in love with is feedback either +/- because aside persuading prospects it improves your business.


5. Be Honest


As you build your web based business present your successes and your problems. Don't think that you can't make mistakes and share those difficulties. When you're completely transparent and up-front about your business, you generate trustworthiness.

6. Have a FAQ Page

A FAQ (frequently asked questions) page makes it straightforward for visitors to find the answers to their questions. It gives peace of mind to your customers that you understand their problems and how you can help them.

7. Be Accessible

Let your website visitors know that they can get in touch with you and how they can do it. Don't hide behind your website. Ensure that your website has a 'contact me' section.


8. Have An 'About Me' Page


Your 'About Me' page, can often be of the most read page on your website. Tell people who you are, why you've created your online business and how it can help them.

9. Quick Loading Website

On average, a website user will give your page about 7 seconds to load and after that, they're gone to one of your competitors. Make sure your website is hosted on server that guarantees fast load times. always consider how fast Nairaland loads. in most cases, the first site i visit once am connected to the Net is nairaland and i end up spending some time and in the other hand, Linda has quality information on her blog but the sole reason why i spend months without visiting the blog is that it takes forever to load. embarassed

10. Start A Blog

When you start a blog it boosts your personal authority. A blog keeps you connected with your customers helps to keep your website recognized by the search engines as they have a preference for websites that are regularly updated.

the truth is that when your level of understanding differs it must not make sense to them before you do it. just take for an example when Hertz told his friends that he has discovered how he can transfer voice through a long distance without using wire connection. they seeked for psychiatric attention but today such discovery lead to our GSM. provided you know what you are doing ride on bro smiley

If you are a new student in university , 100level or predigree in any nigerian university ,congratulations! To those still striving , we pray u make it one day AMEN.
i know you must do physics as one of pure science subject.
What you see in undergraduate physics course is different from your 0-level physics.
Back to when i was a @ my 100level in university , i found physics extremely difficult, ranging from few lectures, no materials to read to no one to put me through.
I decided to put up a project, physics tutorials online, titled derivations of physics equations, relations and formulars for undergraduate studies.
As a physicist graduates i know the challenges ahead and i decided to put down this tutorials for free.
You can see it @ http://sasuwaphysics.
if you have children, friends or colleaques as university freshers, you can send them to the above website .
Your comment are welcome as this will show your interest and encourage me to continue.

Can you tell that to our supposed webmasters? undecided

You own a website, your traffic no reach 1000 but users have to either sign up or log in before viewing the countenance err I mean content of your website, you be Facebook? undecided


You go wait taya.

...and for the record, online based business isn't all about owning a blog or website, there's more to it.
