One of the most important things when starting up your own home based business is getting the right help from the start, but don’t think it will be easy, you will need plenty of dedication, a medium to large amount of internet and PC knowledge or you could be sunk from the start.
One of the good things about starting up an online home based business is the fact that is is much cheaper, compared to starting one up where you need premises, staff, equipment etc, you just need to add the determination and entrepreneurialism .
When setting off decide first if you are going to provide a service or buy resale rights to a product or products or even become an affiliate, being an affiliate it usually the easier way to get started as the product and advertising materials are already there for you to use, one of the most renowned on the internet is Clickbank, they have a ultra large choice of hundreds off ready to sell products, it’s maybe worth checking them out first to help you decide which niche to get involved in.
Once you have decided which item you have decided to sell, you will then need to get people to look at it, no traffic, no business, no money, a good place to start would be to get it listed with the search engines, there are only really a few main ones you should bother with for the bulk of the traffic and you should manually submit to those, like Yahoo, Google, Lycos, Alta Vista.
Even though are literally thousands of search engines, you would be crazy to manually submit to all of them, so that’s where maybe an auto submitter would come in handy, here’s a free one to get you started at freewebsubmission.com.
Another good way to get targeted traffic to your site is by using PPC, or pay per click, it basically means what it says, you pay for everyone who clicks on your ad, you have to be careful with this type of advertising and choose your keywords carefully as it can become costly, but you do receive very targeted traffic, just make sure you write a good ad to attract those clicks.
So there are a few basics to get you started on your road to riches, you just have to remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day and initially you will have little traffic, unless you use ppc with good keywords, you just have to not give in and don’t let outside influences effect your judgement, remember what the mind can perceive, the mind can achieve, if you struggle in this area of motivation and personal development it’s maybe worth a look at Success University, I’m sure it will change your way of thinking forever.
