What are the top trending online business one can invest in with low capital??
What do you need to do to start a business? You don't succeed in business just by completing a list of tasks. Nor will your business be a success just because you think it's a good idea. What will make or break your business? What determines if it will be a success? According to BusinessKnowHow;

1. Know yourself, your true motivational level, the amount of money you can risk, and what you're willing to do to be successful. Sure, we all want to make millions of
dollars. But what are you willing to give up to reach that goal? How many hours a week will you work on an ongoing basis? How far out of your comfort zone are you willing to stretch? How far will your family stretch
with you? To be successful, keep your business plans in line with your personal and family goals and resources.

2. Choose the right business for you. The old formula – find a need and fill it – still works. It will always work. The key to success is finding needs that you can fill,
that you want to fill, and that will produce enough income to build a profitable business.

3. Be sure there really is a market for what you want to sell. One of the biggest mistakes startups make is to assume a lot of people will want to buy a particular product or service, because the business owner likes the ideas or knows one or two people who want the product or service. To minimize your risk for loss, never assume
there is a market. Research the idea. Talk to real potential prospects (who aren't family and friends) to find out if what you want to sell is something they'd be interested in buying, and if so, what they'd pay for the
product or service.

4. Plan to succeed. If you're not seeking investors or putting a huge sum of money into your business, youm ay not need an elaborate business plan, but you still do
need a plan - one that specifies your goal – your destination – and then lays out at least a skeletal roadmap for how you'll get to where you want to go. The plan will change as you progress and learn more about
your customers and competition, but it will still help you stay focused and headed in the right directions. Use our business planning worksheet to help develop that basic plan.

5. Don't procrastinate. I've heard some people advise would-be business owners to not move ahead with their business until they have investigated every last detail
of the business they want to start, and are absolutely sure it's all going to work and be profitable. The problem with that approach is that it leads to procrastination. No one ever really has all the pieces in place – even after they've started their business. Yes,
you need to research the market, have a rudimentary plan in place and do things like get a tax id if needed, register with local officials, if required, etc. But if you try to make everything perfect before you launch, you may never get around to starting the business at all.

6. Start on a small scale before going all out. Some people believe that entrepreneurs are risk-takers. But for the most part, successful entrepreneurs don't like walking
blindfolded on a limb. Instead, they take controlled risks. They test an idea on a small scale, then build on what works well, tweak what shows promise and discard
the disasters.

7. Don't fixate on mistakes or get demoralized by them. The difference between successful people and everyone else is that the successful people learn from
their mistakes and move on. They don't dwell on failure, blame the economy, curse their bad luck, or blame other people for their fate. If the path to their goal is blocked, they look for an alternate path, or sometimes choose a different, more attainable goal.

8. Learn from others. Find mentors, join groups with like-minded people, learn everything you can about youri ndustry and what it takes to get from where you are to
where you want to be. Attend industry conferences. Take training courses when they are available. Buy courses
offered by experts. You'll save a tremendous amount of trial and error by learning from people who have been there before.

9. Think of what you do AS a business. Keep track of income and expenses, keep business money separate from personal funds, find out what regulations your business needs to abide by.

10. Understand the difference between working for yourself and building an ongoing business. If you want to build a
business, you need to develop systems and methods that allow you to hire other people to DO the work of the business while you plan it. You limit the potential for growth if you don't bring in other people to work for
you.

11. Get to know investors. If the business you are starting will need investors to grow, do what you can to find out what investors are looking for and where to find those
who might invest in your kind of business. Local angel and venture capital groups are a good place to start – attend meetings they hold or meetings that investors are speaking at.

12. Put yourself out there. Ask for what you want (in a polite way.) I started my online business by participating online on GE's GEnie online service. When I was ready
to send them a proposal to run a small business area, I could not only talk about my credentials in general, but point to places I was already contributing to their service. I became one of the early content providers to America Online because I picked up the phone and made a cold call. I wound up with a new consulting client after I struck up a conversation with a woman sitting next to
me on an airplane. Remember, people like to do business with people they know. Get the ball rolling, and keep it rolling by continually reaching out and introducingy ourself to new people.

13. Embrace Digital Marketing. Even if you’re running a local business, you need a comprehensive digital presence. At minimum you need a professional-looking
website, an email list that lets you communicate with customers and prospects on a regular basis, and presence on the social media channels that your
customers frequent. While you may get many of your customers by word of mouth, referrals or networking, you still need a strong digital presence. The reason:
prospective customers are likely to look you up on the web before they decide whether or not to contact you. Coupons, special offers, and practical information sent to your email list can encourage customers and prospects to buy from you or make repeat purchases.

14. Never stop learning and trying new things. What's profitable now, won't necessarily be profitable next year or 10 years from now. So, don't let yourself fall into the "this is the way I've always done things" rut. Keep your eyes and ears open for new things. Are there newer
or better ways to market your products and services? Are customers asking for something you're not offering? Is there a different type of customer you should be targeting? Get answers by reading everything you can about your industry and listening to your customers.

Now, guys what do you currently want? I want investments that will make me good money!

This was how I started as a freelancer and I did it offline!
Gaining quality clients offline is actually easier than you might think. Most times the clients come to you. When you do some quality job for someone, any other person interested in such a job will likely hire you after seeing the ones you did for his colleague. It's that simple. The quality of your job can speak for you. However, how do you get the first few clients? When I was freelancing as a web designer a few years back, it was indeed a challenge since not everyone was ready to consider the possibility of a larger market through the internet. Most times, I had to move from one establishment to another in search of clients.
