The 2018 Entrepreneur Symposium that I helped organize was such a massive hit in our state. I had no initial expectations about it because: 1) it was the first time I did it, and 2) not many people answered our invitations. So, you could imagine my delight when the entire auditorium that we booked was filled with people.
Men and women, young and old, came out to learn about entrepreneurship. I realized at that point how many individuals wanted to become bosses of their own. They did not want to remain as an employee for the rest of their lives.
The primary topic during the event was an online business. When the speakers ended their presentations, and we opened the floor for questions, everyone was eager to ask away. The most common question, though, was, “What kind of professionals do I need to hire for my first online business?”
The first person on your team should be a web developer. You need a website that not only works but is also easy on the eyes. Its functionality can make or break your business, too.
Once the site is in the works, you should get a content writer to fill the pages with texts. It is ideal to find someone with profound knowledge about search engine optimization (SEO). This way, you have a better chance of ranking high in search engines from the start.
Social Media Manager
When your website is already working, you need to start advertising it. The best course of action is to hire a social media manager who can post advertisements and build up your presence on various platforms.
Now, if you can take on all these roles yourself, that’s okay. However, we typically advise online business owners against it. That is especially true if you are no expert in web development, content writing, and social media management. You can quickly find the right people for specific jobs through friends or virtual job sites.
