Quote From Wikipedia – [if someone can generate enough income to meet their needs from sources other than their primary occupation, they have achieved financial independence]
In these times economic upheaval and unemployment people are finding it increasingly difficult to get by or make ends meet with just one source of income. Therefore more and more of these people are looking into the possibilities of, and indeed, the idea of, starting their own extra-income businesses. Most of these part-time endeavors are started and operated from the comfort and privacy of these people’s homes.
A lot of these people are making the extra money they need. Some have actually built these extra income efforts into full-time, and very profitable businesses. Others are just keeping busy, having fun, and enjoying life as never before.
The important thing is that they are doing something other than wait for the government to give them a handout. They have improved their lot in life, and you can do it too!
The fields of online products and services (information products, eBooks etc) mail order selling, affiliate marketing, and in-home party sales have never been more popular. If any of these kinds of extra-income-producing ideas appeal to you, then you owe it to yourself to check them out.
Of course these aren’t the only fields of endeavor you can start and operate from home with little or no investment and learn as you go. An hour or so searching on Google will give you countless ideas.
Define Market Demand – Marketing For Home Business
The first thing you “must” do however, is some basic market research. Find out for yourself, particularly in your local area – people who are, or could be interested in your proposed product or service. More importantly, would be willing to pay money for it.
This is known as defining your market and pin-pointing your customers. If after checking around, talking about your idea with a whole lot of people over a period of time, you get the idea that these people would be paying customers, then your next effort should be directed toward the “detailing” of your business plan.
The more precise and detailed you write out such a plan – covering all the bases relating to how you’ll do everything that needs to be done, and when – the easier it’s going to be for you to attain success. Such a plan should show your start-up investment needs.
This will include your advertising plan, your production costs as well as procedures, your sales program, and how your time will be allocated.
To often, enthusiastic and ambitious entrepreneurs “jump in” on a project and suddenly find that the costs are beyond their abilities. The time requirements are also more than they can meet.
It pays to lay it all out on paper before you get involved. The more detailed you can “see” everything before you start, the better your chances of success.
Assuming you’ve got your market targeted. This means you know who your customers are going to be and how you’re going to reach them with your product or service offer. You have also got all your costs as well as time requirements itemized – the next thing is to set your plan in motion and start making money.
Business Plan Small Business
Here is the most important “secret” of all, relating to starting and building a profitable home-based business. Regardless of what kind of business you start, you must have the capital and the available time to sustain your business through the first six months of operation on the basis of not taking in any money.
Most importantly, you must not count on receiving of spending any money coming in from your business, on yourself or for your bills, during those first six months. Any and all the income from your business during those first six months should be reinvested in your business in order for it to grow and reach your planned first year potential for it.
One other thing you must decide on is a name for your business. Its always best to keep it short and sweet so that people wont have a hard time remembering it for when they search for it on the internet.
The last part of this article will deal with this very important aspect of starting up a home business. So…
How To Select A Name For Your Home Based Business
If you are launching a new business, you are probably brainstorming to find the perfect name for that business. This should also be your domain name of your business website, but what should it be? What catchy title is most likely to attract the attention of customers?
If you want to select a name for your home based business, start simply and don’t over think the process. Often times, the most obvious thing is that which we overlook because we are too busy searching for the perfect answer.
You can start to select a name for your home based business by taking out a notepad. Write down the type of business you have in mind onto a piece of paper.
What is it that you will be selling? Will it be a product or service? Next, think of ways to make the title unique and interesting.
If you are the sole proprietor of a business, perhaps you want to include your name in the business title. For example, if Mary is selling cup-cakes and other unique sweet treats, perhaps her business could be named “Mary’s Unique Party Treats.” This could also easily be the name of a catering business you run from home where the main line are sweet treats for parties.
Whatever the title, it should be indicative of the product or service that you are offering. A business name will draw more attention if it makes people smile so, if possible, try to add a little humor to the title. If people enjoy the name of your business, their interest will be peaked as to what else they could enjoy about the business itself.
Before making a final decision on a name for your home based business, make sure that you check that your title is unique and there isn’t another business with the same name. You don’t want to begin a new business venture with any problems over trademark infringement.
Take the time to do your research on other business names. Besides, your business is unique. It is all about you and the service or product that you provide, so you would want to give it a name that is equally unique.
When all is said and done, be sure that you select a name for your home based business that you will enjoy displaying on business cards and promoting both locally and nationally. The name of your business is the first thing that people will notice. Even before they surf your website, call you on the phone or send an order, they will already be aware of your business name.
Make them smile and they will be eager to do business with you.
