Today having a website is an absolute thing if you want to be successful in the world of online business.
In this digital age there is no such thing as luck you have to work hard and smart to be able to ‘win’ in this era that full of competition.

Fill your website with interesting content in addition to promote and tell peoples about your products.

Because today people will hesitate to buy a product or use your services if your profile looks not convincing.
The increasing number of online fraud, scam and so on, that happen in the online world is causes peoples will not easily believe to do business or buy products through social media.
Having a professional website is one of the solutions to make your prospective customers become convinced that you are truly a professional.
And on the website /blog is also the best place to “execute”
If you do not have your own blog or website, I recommend to getting start it.
You can read tutorials about how to start a blog here How to Start Blog With WordPress
Or alternatively you can create a free website by Google on Google My Business
Basically social media is just as a bridge in the world of marketing, the best final execution is blog /website.
In social media, it’s better avoid doing direct sell and ‘Hard selling’ also avoid to post stuff merely offering your product or services only.
Also be consider that not all of your followers are the ones who like to buy a product from you, and also not the fans myth that the more follower then your sales will be more in demand.
Online business is no different from a business that is done ‘offline’ both equally require patience and perseverance. Success does not happen overnight.
