this strategy is that it takes to long.

do you build a business that supports a lifestyle and not a ‘work style’?

increasing your income by working less. You cannot sacrifice the one for the

mortar business in today’s economic climate, you are probably trying to figure
out how to best get your product or service in front of your local customers.
So, you have gotten
your website ranked highly on search engines, but you still do not have that
noticeable increase in customers you were told you would. SEO, or search engine
optimization is only one part of using your internet presence to its maximum
benefit. Once people go to your site, you must create a reaction in your new
visitor that in essence is, “Wow, I think that doing business with this
company is a No Brainer”.
How do you do that? On
home page of your web site, the first thing you need to create is
“TRUST”. You can do this by listing any business organizations you
belong to, like the BBB, with a link to your rating. Use the textual content to
describe why your way of doing business is different and better that other
people in your local area doing the same thing. Have testimonials on your front
page, in a sidebar, so visitors see it without needing to scroll down the
page… What is the best type of testimonial? Video of your best customer
saying how happy they are with your product/service is the best way to capture
the interest of a new potential customer.

Starting a home-based
business was one of the best things that I ever did. It is the best decision
that I ever made. I couldn’t think of anything worse then spending hours each
day stuck in traffic, heading off to a cubicle with no natural light only to do
mindless tasks for someone else that don’t seem to mean anything. I realize
that I only have one life and don’t want to waste it working for petty people
who don’t appreciate me and the effort that I put in. I am a man of creativity
who likes to think outside of the square. You can’t do this working for someone
Here is why I love my
It is midnight and it
is okay- Because I work for myself I can set my own hours. This article was
planned and written late at night because that is when I decided that I wanted
to work. I do not have to fit in to the conventions of other people and their
9-5 mentality. My home-based business is flexible and I can fit it around other
things that I have in my life- friends, family and hobbies.
I can do whatever I
want- Being self-employed leaves me entirely flexible. I have the ability to
pick and choose the projects that I want to work on. I can say no to work or
projects that are of no interest to me. It is not like working for someone else
whereby you must do what projects are given to you. There may also be office
politics at play whereby your immediate superior gives you the worst projects
because he doesn’t like you. You wouldn’t have these problems with your own
I can work wherever I
want- All of … Read more
