Starting out from scratch.

I'm looking into making my own small online business but I would like to have some suggestions on how it should be done... I'm sadly completely new to this and the research I have done feels like it's not enough. I'm thinking about doing an online bakery service for bread at home like selling homemade loaves or more. Or should I do more than just bread like cookies. Where do I make a website and how (I so far recall wix does it)? Does Patreon also do business like this one? And with this pandemic how should this be done?

Sorry to ask these questions.

    It is always good to start a business which you likes the most. Otherwise it will be difficult for you to continue with that in future. So go with your passion.

    Hi Maica 

    It is pretty to make a website now. You can install popular CMS like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal with just a few clicks. Most web hosting providers provide softaculous (one-click installer).

    While it is difficult to tell you how to set up a website or operating an online store in this post. I suggest your google for free online course like "How to create your first website", "How to build a website", "how to sell online"...etc

    You can try popular platform like Udemy, I saw plenty of both paid and free courses for this topic. Sign up an account and learn the basics first.

    You could check out Shopify or MojoEngine website builder for a more managed/hands-off experience. You would still need to setup the store but at least you would be able to focus more on your cookie business.

    Starting your business from scratch can be exciting with lot of risks and less funding but if you think you can do it then trust your guts and go for it.
