The Best Advice About Starting an Online Home Based Business

You can search it into google “get rich quick”, and you will find a list of sites. Sign up at the site. You will need to pay the membership fee if applicable and then follow the instructions to the letter. Soon you’ll be rich and starting an online business.

This was just for fun. 🙂 To get you thinking, not all advice is created equal.

What is the best piece of advice I can offer you? Is there one thing that will give you the best start to starting a profitable online business?

Get a Good Mentor

This is some great advice. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Find someone who has been there, done that, and you will be fine.

Friendliness and patience that allow you to ask stupid questions without rolling your eyes is a bonus. 🙂

Great Content

Although web surfers may not be the smartest people around, I am willing to wager that they can sense bad content from a mile away. There are millions of sites they can choose from so anything less than excellent content will not cut it.

The money is on the list

Any home-based business can benefit from a mailing list of targeted prospects. It’s like having your cake and eating it too. You can send an email to everyone who has ever created or found a new product and they will be waiting in line to purchase it.

It isn’t as easy as it seems. It will likely take a lot of time to build and maintain the list. A good list can be likened to money in the bank when it is done right.


What is the most valuable advice I can offer you? Okay. listen up. Here’s my best advice:

“Don’t listen” to me or anyone else.

Let me explain. You will find “counter” advice for every piece of advice you find about home-based businesses.

Article marketing, for example, is the best way to get exposure for your company, according to many people. You will see someone else recommending SEO.

Many people will argue that the list may have the most value, but the time, effort, and expense involved in maintaining it are huge. It’s more productive to invest your time, money, and effort in building niche websites and attracting organic visitors to them. Traffic will continue to flow for many years and it is just as valuable as a list.

I could go on.

You will get generic, common-place advice. It’s probably cost somebody some considerable money. It is up to you to decide if it is right for your site.

Consider article marketing. Write at least one article per day. The usual advice is to write just one article an hour. You can then submit the articles to article directories. You will start to get traffic and make good money after publishing a few hundred articles.

Although the person who gave you the advice will say that anyone can do it, I disagree. It is unlikely that anyone can write enough articles per day to attract web surfers to the site.

You may also receive advice on how to build relationships with other webmasters or technical stuff or how to write as much content and… the list goes on.

All advice should be viewed in light of your business, skills, interests, and passion. You don’t have to make a lot of money selling trinkets via eBay just because someone has.

Your online business from home is all about you, your site, and your business. Listen to all advice you receive. It is only advice at the end. It is up to you to decide how to make it all work for your business.
