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.
Supplies must not be missed out in the checklist, as their importance should not be considered trivial. It is better to buy pates, napkins, spoons, cups, and saucers in huge number so that the host will avoid eleventh hour purchases. Preparing extra food is necessary as it is nearly impossible to be able to arrive at an exact estimate. If one wants to make the guests elated with surprise gifts, he may have to do some research which should also be included in the checklist. Tables, chairs and other equipment that should be rented should also be mentioned accordingly in the checklist. In order to satisfy every guest\'s party spirit, checklist becomes an essential requirement for the hosts. Hosts have different ways in coming up with a checklist but the execution and implementation are similar. If one wants to see things happening orderly, organized and efficient, the checklist is the powerful weapon.
