You Can Start a Home Business Without Much Money

The Internet is easily accessible to everyone and actually much of it is completely free. Therefore it makes it much easier than you might imagine to start a home business with very little money. Actually anyone with a computer and Internet connection right there has the foundation for many businesses that could become profitable with a little determination.

a little money is all you need

Some people may already have a potential idea and the skills or expertise to bring it. The vast majority of us do not. We may have ‘big ideas’ but most are ‘pipe dreams’ that are not feasible unless we already had money and considerable technical skill to develop something on our own. That should in no way deter us from seeing what we CAN DO.

So assuming you are like the majority and have only a desire to create a home business either part-time or full-time, there are many ideas you can find and develop online. If you have just basic computer skills that you may have acquired in your career or even by trial and error on your own, you really do have the building blocks to start something online that can earn you some money in the future.

You may need to begin with a ‘starter’ program just so that you can get your bearings and find out what you need to do to promote a business online. Any business needs to be promoted by advertising and marketing in order to attract paying customers. It is an art but it is not ‘rocket science’ and you could learn easily. Some people learn best by just doing something.

If you were to join for example an affiliate marketing program, they would provide a web page so that you could potentially start earning while you are learning. They also usually have some level of training as far as promoting the program. This information would be applicable to ANY online business.

You can earn money by referrals to the business opportunity as well as by selling their products or services. It doesn’t have to be your life’s dream. It just has to help you get acclimated and get a little experience. There is no commitment beyond month-to-month and usually low monthly membership fees so you are free to stay or go.

In the near future you will have gotten ‘your feet wet’ and feel some level of comfort. At some point you may have determined that you like the Internet marketing industry and are now able to better formulate your ideas and create a plan. At this point you can either expand your portfolio and join more affiliate programs, to give yourself more capacity to earn more money, or you can decide to take a fork in the road.

There are other similar business models to affiliate marketing such as being an ‘independent distributor’ and selling tangible products. This should not mean you need to buy an inventory and you should run from a company that requires you to make a monthly purchase in order to be a distributor. There are lots of very famous companies that you can hook up with free that will provide help for you to get started. You can arrange ‘drop-shipping’ straight from their warehouse to your customer.

Those are just two simple suggestions that are highly doable by today. You will of course have your own ideas when the time comes for you to take action to start a home business!

The Free eBook Bonus

Giving away free information in exchange for an email address is a very good strategy used by many successful Internet marketers. Using an eBook format is usually a lot more professional than say a ‘Report’ that is just a few typed pages or an email. However whichever way you are able to provide the information it will have to suffice to create an opportunity to promote your business to people discreetly.

As a doubly valuable mechanism to promote your business or product, the eBook could have your direct links. Prospects would have a permanent record of your contact and/or purchase information. Since people do not always respond immediately, it is fairly useful to have a way for them to keep the contact information handy. Of course to be able to just ‘double-click’ a link is the most convenient and efficient way to create a sales transaction.

So while the information can really be about anything and your only opportunity to promote your business is in your biography box or signature, again, it is twice as advantageous if you can work your way into being part of the report. However, not to worry, since you now have their email address which they gave you in order to obtain your free gift, you will have plenty of time and opportunity to approach them about joining a program or buying a product from you in the near future.

The concept of providing important information for free is a good one not only because you are able to help people find what they need to know, but because you are building a relationship of trust with others. These may or may not turn out to be potential customers. That is the chance you take and is no more risky than paying for advertising that may or may not generate any response.

You can write your eBook about a number of topics that would relate to starting a home business; for example, how to do any number of things like joining an affiliate marketing program, using various Internet marketing tools, staying motivated, succeeding through challenges undaunted. Depending on your creative writing abilities, you can take your eBook in any direction that you want to within your niche or multiple niches.

Letting people in on ‘secrets’ from successful marketers is another example of something very powerful that is on the same level of attraction with ‘How to’ do something. It is the kind of thing that people may have wondered but did not know how to access, and there it is! Your offer to give them a free report so that they can learn what they need to know!

Anyone can create an eBook easily without much expense. We now have open source software available as well as something as simple as ‘Save As’ where you see you can save any Word document in ‘PDF’ format. It should be pretty easy to add an ‘image’ to the first page or throughout the report to make it really dynamic – but since it is the information that is what is important, you could do without the bells and whistles.
