Hello, I want to share a few tools with you that's made a lot of difference in my business. this is free software that teaches you how to use twitter to make money.
this website teaches you how to build you list first before selling a
product online so you will always have a market to sell too. this is an
auto responder that I'm learning to rely on heavily to help monitor your
list of clients here's how facebook works, how to build business credit

I also meant to tell you that Ebay may not be as cheap as you think it is. Fees to get a store and advertise may cost you monthly what your own store would cost.

If you know you have money to do Ebay then you have some thought a small bit about your overhead but you still dont have a clear picture yet.

And don't get it twisted, your budget or what you decide to put into it financially will not be the ONLY factor while attempting to secure success.

Lets say you have $300, you should think, how much bang can I get for my $300. My company teaches start ups how to do this once they decide to become clients. The goal is to stock and open the store. Immediately you should think where does my stock come from? Is it wholesale, do you resell, do you make it? All of those choices come with different overhead. Can they be combined?

Determine the value of your time and what's its worth. How much time can you afford to waste.

No business fashion, jewelry or otherwise has a guarantee of success. But if you start with a solid foundation the strength to stand a little longer will endure.

Yes I own the design of the website and I own the company itself.

There could be various reasons why an online business may fail, however researching the business is a great idea. But some of the daily things you must asses is how much leg work do you want to do with your business. How will carry your inventory, and what will that cost? Website alone cost money, how much of a website do you need? What will be your monthly overhead?What major company that is selling what you want to sell is working? Model that company. You will have to market your business, how will you do that? These are only some of things you want to consider prior to moving forward.

No one can promise what you will or wont make in your business. But a business plan and a marketing plan will give you the road map you need to get going. These things wont necessarily promise you riches but it will prevent you from being redundant in your efforts to succeed.

Do you shop online? What type of experience do you have when you shop from your favorite website? Thats exactly how you want your customers to shop from you.

Hi Lauren,

No need to be confused. Fashion has nothing to do with the web design industry other than the fact the web designer can customize your online presence for that fashion business. I own a web design firm and a online clothing store. And as a web designer I cater to ALL industries not just the fashion industry. Just as they have two different domain names, two different websites, they are two different businesses. There was no need to mention the fact that I own Cinnamon Motif on this profile because CM has its own profile. Girl Power!

It would be a good idea for you to read a few of the above articles about starting an online business. This will help you access a budget for you. Determine the type of online business you wish to start and do your research.

You know better than anyone what you can afford, so keep it real and you will do fine.

Hello Lauren,

Please accept my invitation to add me as a friend and connect with 26,500+ black professionals that are supporting each other's businesses (churches are welcomed). It is a powerful group with lots of benefits and opportunity to connect with other powerful black professionals and their families all around the world. We officially launched the BBN in Atlanta, GA, August 29th. It was truly a historical event and the kick-off of our worldwide movement toward economic empowerment. "Marcus Garvey began this mission in the early 1900s when he united millions of Black people all over the world, and got everyone being, buying and building Black. With the great reach and power of the Internet, we aim to further his accomplishment."

This is one of the hottest, new websites on the Internet, called Black people are uniting to network and support black businesses. It's really great. If you’re ready to be a part of a movement that will create wealth in our communities (that means you) I encourage you to click on the link, JOIN and list yourself (for FREE) for exposure and reach for your products and/or services. If you don’t have a business, you can come in as a consumer and be able to find and buy black products/services from our black businesses (join for FREE). Visit the site and check out the businesses where brothers and sistas are part of this GROWING movement to “Buy Black”. Please share this with other positive brothers and sistas.

Be blessed,

Barb B, MBA
