If you have ever dreamed about owning and operating your own online business, you may very well have asked two basic questions:
1. What is the process in building your own internet based home business?
2. Is there a simple “step by step” method for those who know very little about building a home business online?
Before I answer these questions and others, I would like to clarify one thing. Even if you have already started your online journey to fulfilling your “work at home dream”, and even if you are far from calling yourself a beginner in online marketing, new software and tools are being developed every day to help existing home based business owners grow their already established websites.
The answer to both of these questions is of course “yes”. But where does a person turn to ensure they are getting the online business guidance they need, without a lot of investment in cold hard cash. Let’s first of all agree that there will definitely be an investment in time and effort. That said, there are online business programs that are available for a reasonable start up cost.
The process in building your own internet based home business begins with finding a niche area that lines up with your own interests, and moves to everything from selecting a business domain name, doing keyword research, to building online content that gets results in the search engines… AND there are many steps in between that a person needs to take. (not to mention the basics of where to host your website and the technical aspects involved).
These are the things I want to discuss at Work at Home Dreams. And just like your own online business, they will be explored in depth over time.
As for the second question: “What is the step by step method for beginners and for those who need to tweak their existing internet based home business?” Well, short of hiring a personal consultant for a few thousand dollars, there is a program I discovered a few years ago that has been continually updated to ensure steady growth of your online presence. It’s call SiteSell and the use of their program Site Build It. More about that later, but first I want to leave you with this advise.
A work at home dream is fueled by the big picture. Financial independence. Freedom to enjoy life without financial stress. Even the possibility to quit your day job so you can stay home with your family. Travel more, help friends and family.
As you start on this road to online success, don’t forget what fuels your dream – the “big picture”… but also realize it won’t happen overnight. You can’t do it in a week. Not even a month. But if you commit to the steps needed, day by day, week by week, you will get there. The time commitment is not overwhelming if you commit to building you internet based home business a little each day.
For a moment, I want to return to this issue of finding something you love. This is important because on the road to building a real work from home internet business, you need to stay in it for the long haul. Ask yourself this question. If you don’t make a cent or the first 6 month, will you regret your accomplishments? Or will you feel proud about how much content on a particular subject you’ve been able to provide to your readers? Hopefully the latter will be true. Legitimate home based businesses are built over time. Once your home business starts to generate incoming working from home, you will need to continue to build on it and fresh new content on the subject. This can only be achieved if you enjoy the subject on which your home business is based upon.
