I always get very excited when I meet new entrepreneurs because they are full of life, motivation and determination.

It brings back memories of when I first started out as an entrepreneur over two decades ago and I am pleased to say that I am still going strong.

The reason for that is because I sat down and planned things out right from the start and took action. Sadly I see many new entrepreneurs who don’t do this and the result is that after just a short space of time they get frustrated and ultimately give up on their dreams.

So in this post I am going to share with you 5 critical steps that you need to take to ensure that your new idea and business is a roaring success.

New Entrepreneurs – The Blueprint To Online Business Success

New Entrepreneurs – Set Clear Goals For Your Online Business

Your business starts with an idea but you need to be really specific and write down your objectives for your business.

So you need to determine clear goals and what you want to accomplish with your business. How far do your daily business activities move you towards achieving your goals? – what do you want to achieve each day, each week, each month, each year and how will you ensure you achieve them?

New Entrepreneurs – A Business Plan

You need to sit down and clearly plan out the structure of your business. This starts with the products and services that you will be offering so you will need to do some research to see if there is a demand and also who you will be your target market.

Also will the products and services be your own or will you look to sell affiliate products. If this is the case you will need to source them.

Then you will need to look at logistics, meaning how will you fulfil the products and services. Finally you will have to look at how much you are going to sell your products for. You have to be profitable but you also have to be competitive.

What is the legal entity? Build a list and a customer database, set up the marketing foundations and websites and ads, Register for VAT and with the Tax Office, get an accountant and business bank account and more. It all needs planning!

New Entrepreneurs – Take Massive Action

Now you have your goals set out and a business plan to work to you must then act on everything that you have laid out.

Unless you take massive action your business will remain on the drawing board and will never be more than a pipe dream.

New Entrepreneurs – Outsource Parts Of Your Business

At first you will try and do everything yourself because you think that you have to. In reality you will find that this is simply impossible due to time constraints and skills sets that you will not have.

Don’t try to be a jack of all trades and master of none. Look at what you are good at and take on those tasks. For other tasks that you find challenging you must look to outsource them to specialised people.

Yes this will incur a cost but it is well worth it because you will get tasks done to a far higher standard. There are many freelancing sites online where you can find highly talented people.

Also you need to look at automating your business as much as possible. There are many software applications and services that can automate many parts of your business.

 For example you can set up lead capture pages and link them to an auto-responder to collect email addresses. Then you can set up email sequences that go out everyday providing value and promoting your products and services for people to then purchase. You only need to set this up once and advertise your lead capture page.

So look at automating your business as much as possible.

New Entrepreneurs – Time Management

We only have 24 hours in a day and you simply can’t manufacture any more time so to make sure your business runs efficiently you need to get good at managing your time.

Look at how you spend your week. Things like watching television or pastimes, and see if you can take some of that time to run your business. Become good at managing people if you employ freelancers and definitely look at automation as previously mentioned.


If you are going to join the new breed of new entrepreneurs then you must implement the steps that I have shared with you to give your new business the best chance to succeed.

I wish you every success for the future.
