Furniture, clothes, books, even fruit and vegetables: the online market is booming! Never before has it been so easy to take the first steps into self-employment. But if you want to get on the road to success with your Internet business, you need a good concept, a little perseverance and, above all, a good name.Take off powerfully without financial risk! It's no wonder that more and more people are opting for full-time or part-time self-employment on the Internet. An online shop of one's own involves far fewer financial risks than opening a shop and can, at least in the early days, be run comfortably alongside one's main job. Young mothers in particular are often drawn to part-time self-employment, because those who stay below a monthly additional income of currently 445 euros can remain in the family insurance together with their husband and children.Before starting online: consider legal aspects! If you are thinking about becoming self-employed on a part-time or full-time basis, you need to pay attention to a few things during the planning phase. For example, if you want to be self-employed, you need a trade licence, which can be applied for at the city for little money.
The tax office and the IHK are then automatically informed about the new trader, and depending on the monthly income, taxes and an annual IHK fee have to be paid. Once you have completed all the legally required steps, it is of course finally time to take care of building a professional web presence.The own web shop: On your own or as a booked complete solution? If you have good Internet and design skills, you can buy space from a web hosting company and create your own e-shop entirely on your own. However, usually young entrepreneurs are not knowledgeable enough or prefer to focus on their actual business from the beginning. For these cases, e-commerce platforms have practical all-in-one solutions ready, which can be booked for a monthly or annual fee. Often, an own domain is part of the package, along with web space and an easy-to-use shop solution.
Choosingyour own domain name is the be-all and end-all of a new online shop. The internet shop can be found by search engines via this name and it is exactly this term that should be permanently imprinted in the customer's mind. The domain name must therefore be unique, establish a connection to the company and be easy to remember. Therefore, it is worthwhile to think carefully about the right term before choosing a domain name.Secure the right domain immediately! Once you have found an expressive name, you should not hesitate for long and buy the domain directly. This directly ensures that the name can no longer be assigned elsewhere.
Before buying a domain, it is of course checked whether the desired name is currently still available. Should the tragic case occur that this is no longer the case, a professional domain search engine directly presents numerous exciting name alternatives. If the name is still available, it can be purchased directly including installation and configuration, fortunately no technical knowledge of the buyer is necessary.
