Tips for setting up an online business
Setting up an online business can be quick and easy to do. But it’s easy to make mistakes and do it the wrong way. Here are our top tips for setting your online business up the right way.
Tip 1: Check the web domain name you want is available
If you can’t get the domain name you want for your online business, you may need to rethink your business name. You can check online if the domain name you want is available via a hosting service like GoDaddy.
Tip 2: Check your business name is available
If your domain name is available, check that the business name you want is available as well. You can do that online via the Australian Securities and Investments Commission website. If your business name isn’t available, you’ll have to think of another one that is (and you’ll need to go back and check that your web domain name is available as well).
Tip 3: Register your domain name and business name
If both your domain and business names are available, register them so that no one else can claim them.
Tip 4: Get your website professionally designed
When you’re an online business, your website is your shopfront. Make sure it’s as professional looking and as easy to navigate as possible.
