On paper, this whole checklist might seem like your business should run like clockwork. In reality, you will not get everything right the first time (no one ever does). You might be losing customers during checkout, your content might not be competitive enough to show up in search engines, your business value offering might be misdirected , and so on.
You must make your site as easy to use as possible. Potential customers won't waste their time trying to work out how to use your site. If it's not immediately obvious how they can get what they want, they won't do it. Not only should the UI (User Interface) be optimized, but the site itself should be designed to make it as easy as possible for visitors to convert to customers - i.e. it should be optimized for conversions.
Consumer Trends – Just because something is popular domestically doesn’t mean it will be internationally. Are they behind in a trend –– or does it just not apply for that market? If you don’t already have sales in a region, do consumer testing and surveys before you ever launch. Know that most businesses that expand internationally already have sales in a particular region before they launch specifically in that country.
1.  Contact an ARC water safety, STSC or lifeguard instructor to schedule the ARC STSC in-water skills session in a pool with the instructor. (This session will be an abbreviated review session for those with a current STSC certification or a full session for those without a current STSC certification.) Coaches can also request a ‘blended learning’ course to include Adult and Pediatric CPR/AED, thus fulfilling another USA Swimming requirement at the same time.

There’s no official, public list of Augusta members, but by cross-referencing published materials from this year’s Masters Tournament with a leaked list of members from 2002, exploring published records, conducting interviews with golf insiders and industry sources, and walking the grounds of the course (where members wear the club’s iconic green jackets) Bloomberg was able to compile a list of 118 of the club’s 300 members. Below, those members are indexed by name and profession.
IntelliCorp Records will conduct county searches in these counties for the name provided and one former last name. A search for an address in one of these counties is subject to an additional $65 fee per name for county criminal record searches. This is the actual fee charged for the search by New York. However, as a benefit to members, USA Swimming will subsidize this fee such that USA Swimming will pay $40 and members who are charged the additional fee(s) will pay only $25 per name that must be searched. This fee will be applied at the time the background check is ordered.

You should always look to repurpose your content, because it is a great way to catch your customer’s eye. Get your most popular content, and turn it into an eBook or into a webinar, and you have a great way to not only attract clients, but retain interest as well. It is one of the most effective lead generation strategies that is around today. Wordstream has an amazing blog on how to do this.
The first three points in this startup checklist basically require you to do adequate research into your market. You have to know what the value of your offering is to the people you are offering it to. For example, there's no point in pricing your premium content at $3 a posting when the exact same content is being given away at a larger, more established site.

You have all of this great, resourceful content...why not get more from it? Repurpose some of your most popular blog articles into an ebook, or turn an ebook into a webinar. This ensures you’re working more efficiently while also featuring more variety in your content. You can even package together an ebook, webinar, and whitepaper into a kit, offering even more value and more importantly, incentive for visitors to convert.
One of the big decisions you’ll need to make when it comes to your membership site is how much you’re going to charge. While it’s tempting to pluck a price out of thin air, that’s not a strategy that’s going to put the most profit in your pocket. Instead, use this checklist guide to determine the best and most profitable pricing strategy for your membership site!
Besides including products that are in a promotion, include products which are best sellers or even featured. You can even add a list of products which are suitable for your customer. This can be achieved in a number of ways; you can select products manually or automate the selection based on a different criteria (i.e. “customers also purchased…”).

✓ Grassroots marketing works in recruiting franchisees. For start-up and bootstrap franchisors with minimal recruitment budgets, it's the only way to grow. For mature franchisors targeting unsold local territories, it's the only way to complete their growth. It's the bread and butter of successful area developers and master franchisees. But it does require more planning, personal involvement, and time commitment. An aggressive franchisee and customer referral program can produce 30 percent or more new franchise owners.
In response, some people choose terribly cumbersome names. They find out that “Tshirt.com” is taken and then learn that “HockeyTshirt.com” is also taken. So they create an unworkable domain name like VeryCool-HockeyTshirt.com. Not only is it too long, it contains a hyphen, which should be avoided (some users forget to put them in, sending them to your competitor’s site.)
