With this article you’ll begin working on your own home based business. What to do next, taking small steps toward building a success plan. It’s not as difficult as you may think so let’s get started with a few baby steps and begin putting your plans into motion.
First, let’s think about your interest, what particular field makes sense to you? Is there a ton of competition or maybe not? Have the big players saturated the field leaving very little room for you to cut out a piece of the “pie” or not?
Anyway, you can see that some things aren’t worth trying because of over-kill with too many competitors in the field vying for the same piece of business.
You want to have enough room to make a dent with effective marketing and hopefully be able to dominate the niche if possible. At least that’s our goal in the beginning to see if your new business has a good chance to succeed without breaking the bank.
We’re not into “fishing” but an old saying tells us that being the BIG FISH in a small pond is better than being a small fish in the big pond. You can make money in many different ways through your website and you’ll want to try advance research before you begin.
Some Internet Marketers have made lots of money using Google AdSense or you may want to find a reputable wholesale distributor with good quality products, then you may want to research selling through store fronts like Yahoo, eBay, or Amazon websites to mention a few.
You should make sure to validate, confirm, your decisions with testing each step. You can’t sit back and wait for a miracle. You want to make sure the traffic coming to your website is being served with products, software, services needed, not just passing through or wasting your time.
Our primary goal is to build a BUYERS list Vs attracting subscribers known as tire-kickers who never spend any money, just “looking” around. A profit center is the end game for your website and that’s where you want to focus all of your attention.
Where are you going to get your website traffic? A website is only the beginning, then we have to find interested prospects either by buying traffic through advertising on Google, Bing, and many other resources including FREE traffic through content marketing, developing back links to your website.
Advertising in Ezines, Newsletters, owned by other Internet Marketers is a great way to introduce your website services to like minded buyers. However, it’s important that you do your research about each ezine or you’ll end up wasting your money. Be sure there’s a related focus or you can end up throwing your money away and getting no response to your offers.
Every ezine Newsletter connects with an audience of like-minded people. You’d never advertise through or to the Corvette Clubs of America when you’re trying to reach RV enthusiasts or those who are walking the trails through the backwoods of Virginia. We’re looking for lots of fish in the pond who have the same interests as your own group.
Building your own business is exciting but it does take learning the nuances of the group you seek or time, money and energy, not to mention frustrations, will overwhelm you with disappointment rather than making your website a cash cow and a great experience. You can do it!
