Starting an Online Business All-in-One For Dummies, (5th Edition)

File Size: 9.45 Mb

Much has changed since we wrote the first edition of this book in 2006, but much has stayed the same. Our number-one goal for the book — to cover the many ways you can start or expand a business by using the Internet — is still the same. Likewise, many of the basic principles for starting your online business are still tried-and-true methods. For this fifth edition, we took great care to update all the key information that has remained valid in the past few years. Our second goal for the book is to expose you, the reader, to new trends and tools that can be utilized by all types of businesses from nonprofit organizations to traditional retailers. We searched out many of the new opportunities that have recently evolved. For example, the rapidly growing use of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, has forever changed the way businesses must operate online.

It’s hard to believe that the first iPhone debuted in 2007, and mobile traffic was less than 1 percent of all Internet traffic. By contrast, in 2017, mobile traffic accounts for nearly 75 percent of all traffic! Mobility has affected almost every area of online businesses, from site design principles and shopping cart features to downloading mobile applications and making mobile payments. Mobile has also provided new ways to make money online, including mobile apps, which we delve into in this edition of the book.
