The desire to start a new business is inside every entrepreneur.
But one of the problems that early entrepreneurs have is to decide what should I start.
An entrepreneur has the ability to detect opportunities to serve the market, and what it defines them as entrepreneur is to move from idea to action.
But sometimes the fear, indecision and doubts surround the entrepreneur at early stages, and the entrepreneurial mindset is what will push up the person to leave out the comfort zone and start to do the steps towards his or her goals.
Following up we share some ideas for entrepreneurs to know where they could start in order to build up an online business.
One important skill that digital entrepreneurs most develop is the ability to learn how to do proper research.
There are already plenty of online research tools that will help entrepreneurs to spot opportunities.
Doing the research doesn’t have to be just in a certain given topic, a digital entrepreneur can do a research of plenty of topics to see and analyze which could be areas where there are plenty of people looking for products or services.
From clothing products to more specific ideas like movies products.
You can do research of interesting topics for yourself such looking at a Page of Harry Potter, of Marvel, or any other interest that you might have, and see if in your region or country is a website that is offering related products.
You can start to analyze your market, run interviews if they are interested in Marvel or do tests of Harry Potter fans to learn if there is a good number of people who might be looking for some sort of product related to it.
Or you can check out what other trend is coming up and analyze what could be some neccesary products or services that the market will need.
Entrepreneurs must have an eye on the market and have the capacity for have a vision of what would be needed based on the their research.
Entrepreneurs can start to do their keyword research with tools such as Google Keyword Planner, Ubersuggest, Ahrefs or Writerzen.
Using such tools is easy to check out how many people are searching for a given term and then they can have an overall idea of how big could be the market.
When an entrepreneur wants to build up an online business there are some technical stuff he or she must learn first.
Domain names, hosting, digital marketing, website traffic, content creation, and more, are important areas to be learned.
Of course, the entrepreneur can get some help of an expert but is highly recommended that he or she can know the basics so that they can start managing the team and know exactly what they want to build up.

Action is what will build up the idea.
Action is what builds up the online business.
Digital entrepreneurs must prepare the required tools and start developing.
If they want to build up courses about how to write books like Harry Potter or create comics like Marvel, then they have to start developing the course, divide it into sections and start building up.
If there is no action, there will be no business and the idea will just be that, an idea.
Motivation to take action comes from within, and only the entrepreneur is the responsible to take action.
The everyday action will be the one that make the online business grow.
Entrepreneurs must be patient with the results that they want to obtain.
Entrepreneurs must play the long run game, and start taking action day by day in a consistent way so that the business builds up.
Consisteny will bring the results over time for entrepreneurs.
But what happens when the entrepreneur doesn’t have seen results after investing time and money?
It is not exactly about the project itself, is about in what the entrepreneur has become.
If a first project didn’t worked out, what makes an entrepreneur a succesful entrepreneur is the ability to do the tweaks, do the changes or turn when it is needed to adapt his project into a renovated one that is more likely to serve the market.
Entrepreneurship is about a journey, about a marathon, and the small victories along the way will be the ones that will add to the success of the entrepreneur.
There are more stories of entrepreneurs that have succeed after several attempts, than those stories where entrepreneurs have success on their first idea.
