First off, you should know that Jill is a very spontaneous person; \"plan\" just isn\'t a word that has ever entered her vocabulary. She has sisters that are much more suited to planning this type of a party, but it really doesn\'t matter. No matter how unorganized you think you are, planning a successful party is as easy as creating a party planning checklist. I took all of the Post_Its, and with Jill\'s help, we organized them into a puzzle of sorts. This puzzle was the start of her checklist. I could see that she had written down names of places, dates and times, menu ideas, theme ideas, and people\'s names. Everything we need for a good checklist seemed to be on the notes.
Checklist 1: Proper Planning Lays the Foundation The first item in starting an online business checklist is to determine what kind of internet business you want to start. Do you want to start an e_commerce store to sell your own products? Do you want an information website that will make money though advertising or a membership website? The next thing is to identify your target market and study it to determine their unmet needs. Study your competition to get an idea of the needs of your target market not met by the existing businesses. This will help you decide the kind of services to offer your target market and in selecting your site\'s domain name. After you determine the viability of your idea, write a business plan for your online business.
