Summary

Online Business Startup isn't just a how-to guide in online marketing or SEO.... It contains everything an experienced entrepreneur wished he had known when he started in business. We are flooded with so much information in the digital world that it distracts us from the fundamentals of starting up and running a lean business. This book is ultimately an answer to the question "how can we quickly implement proven strategies for my online business and avoid all the noise?"

Online Business Startup will teach you:

  • Everything you need to start an online business without the wasted time, money, and effort
  • How to find a trustworthy, reliable digital agency and guarantee a return on your investment
  • The seven best tools for auditing and improving your website
  • How to plan and implement a successful social media strategy

Outdated info regarding technology

I am a Software Engineer for the past 6 years and found bits of this book bit outdated, regarding technical advices.

The author provides many example based on he’s company. But too obvious on my point of view.

Helpful

It’s very helpful if you don’t have a mentor and are figuring this out yourself. There’s so many tips on where to look and how to research, they’re really incredible. If this book was updated to a newer version it would be gold!

Excellent guide to taking your business online

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Starting and building a business is a messy process.
This book does an excellent job of tidying things up so you are aware of each and every step as well as the best order in which to do things so you can successfully launch and grow your business online.
The book goes into great depth on the things you need to think about when setting up a business website. It provides great detail on what you need to consider if you are building the site yourself and also outlines what you will need to communicate with and expect from your web-developer to ensure your online business works for you effectively.
On top of this, the book explains which social media channels you need to plug in to to boost traffic and get found by your customers and introduces online tools and a strategy for creating and sharing content across all channels with minimal effort from you the business owner. In other words, how to get all the benefits with minimal time cost to you.
For someone thinking about starting a new business, this book is essential reading to help you figure out what needs to be done and when. It will bring clarity to what can be a very confusing process.
If you are already in business, this book is something that you will wish you’d read when you were getting started. No matter where you are in your business development, reading the book will allow you to identify the missing gaps that need plugging as well as providing you with tips, tricks and tools for improving your systems, your thinking and ultimately your profits.
In summary, this is a useful map against which you can compare where you are in your business with where you’d like to be and then follow the clear steps outlined to get you there.
The narrator is very clear and even when listened to at triple speed you can hear every word.
I will listen again and take notes so I can start implementing some of these strategies in my businesses.

Not for the existing online business owner

Any additional comments?

This is not for people who are actively engaged in online business as you are likely doing all the things mentioned in this book. This is for the absolute novice beginner looking to enter the online business world.

Really solid introduction to online business

Prior to reading this book, I was intending and starting my new site and working with it. Now, I'm scheduling to re-read this book again and take notes before I do so. Full of really great information and practical steps, I feel like I've learned some great insights that wouldn't have occurred to me otherwise. throughly recommend other small business owners to read through this before launching/re-launching a website. Craig Beck's narration is solid too.
