Internet Home Business Ideas

Previously, I highlighted the three main product categories used by most online marketers: Products, Services and Content (information products). Now, how about some product types from within those categories? Today, I’ll give you a few specific Internet home business ideas.

Internet Marketing has certainly evolved since its inception not so many years ago. But the basic principle of marketing has remained the same: find a need and fill it.

However, the competition among home business marketers has heated up and along with finding a need and filling it, you must also work at building your image as a trusted and preferred supplier for whatever you choose to promote. Keep that thought in mind as you consider potential products. Starting your business with a narrow product focus and then expanding the line as you become more experienced is one way to approach it. … Read the rest of this entry

Real Home Business Opportunities

I have been interested in real home business opportunities for a number of years. One thing that I learned long ago was that there are legitimate ways to earn income from home and there are questionable ways. In this post, I’ll give you some tips on identifying the legitimate ones.

I first started my research into home-based businesses way back last century, back in the ‘70s. Magazine ads like “Make Money From Home” and “Earn Part-time Income” caught my eye and I began sending away for books and reports that promised to educate me. Much of the material was enlightening and, in fact, I still have the first such book that I bought: Plan For Mail Order Profits, by David G. Baron, published in 1975.

Today, Internet Marketing is the preferred way to build a home business. In this post, I will highlight the three primary product categories that most home business marketers use to build their businesses. … Read the rest of this entry

Affiliate Power: Inside the Affiliate Mind

Finally, somebody is thinking about Affiliate Marketers; about what we need from affiliate companies to help us be more successful at selling their products. If they want to maximize their affiliate power, they have to get inside the affiliate mind!

Linc Wonham, associate editor with Website Magazine, has an article in the February edition of the publication titled, Inside the Affiliate Mind. In this article, Wonham highlights the fact that companies typically train, support and reward their paid employees, but often overlook giving the same consideration to their affiliates.

Worse yet, some of these affiliate companies point the finger at affiliate marketers when the company’s sales are down! Wonham notes that while there are some companies that do look after their affiliates, there are those that leave a lot to be desired when it comes to affiliate relations.

“The most successful online business owners learn how to get inside the minds of their often misunderstood (affiliate) partners,” says Wonham. There is value in regularly acknowledging the efforts of affiliates and in supporting them any way possible. “The important point is that the more you can do for your affiliates, the more they will do for you.” … Read the rest of this entry
