Have a killer idea for the next Facebook or YouTube?  Think you have what it takes to start your own online business with some spare pocket change?

 

Think again.

 

Lucrative opportunities in areas like online shopping are attracting entrepreneurs far and wide, and everyone wants a share of the limelight – they just don’t want to spend a dime getting there.

 

These days, whacking together a website is literally child’s play, however, creating a website that functions well and gets users to interact and ultimately buy; that’s a real skill.

 

And it’s a skill you better be willing to pay for.

 

 

 

“I’d like a fully functional e-commerce website – for $250”

 

As with all good stories, we need to start at the very beginning, and any good SEO project starts with the website design itself.

 

A strong web design serves several purposes:

  • It presents a professional and polished brand image.
  • It gets users to the information they need quickly, and without confusion.
  • It instils a sense of trust in potential customers, helping to eventually garner those glorious credit card details.
  • And, it provides a solid architecture for search engines to crawl you.

If you’re starry eyed with dreams of massive usership and huge profits, then you really should consider whether that outsourced website from overseas will stand the test of time.

 

And remember what your mother told you, “It’s not all about looks”.

 

A hugely successful site like online retailer Amazon.com isn’t overly flashy or visually stunning: what it is – is clean, functional, and trustworthy.

 

That sort of genius simplicity takes a lot of work.

 

 

“Can you get me to #1 on Google?  I’ll shout you a beer”

 

The SEO industry is home to many hard-working, highly skilled individuals who can deliver real results.

 

It’s also home to some dodgy characters that will promise you the world, and not leave you with so much as an atlas. And the first warning sign is often price.

 

Here’s a quick equation for the mathematically minded:

 

Cheap SEO = cheap tactics = bad results.

 

But it’s even more serious than simply not seeing results. You see, SEO is a little like dancing, and Google is a tough partner to please.

 

Step on their toes using dodgy link networks? Miss a spin by purchasing poorly written content? Lose the beat by over-optimizing?

 

I’m sorry to say, you’re going home alone tonight buddy – and you just might receive a penalty or get banned as well.

 

 

Never lose sight of the big picture

 

This is solid advice for any area of life, really – don’t be short sighted.

 

Cheap SEO and web design might look very attractive on the surface, but they are both equally rotten at the core; leading to a myriad of problems down the road, that will cost you money.

 

There are sensible ways to cut corners and save money in your business; 1 ply toilet paper and cheap SEO don’t qualify.
