Home Based Business
Web Site

Home Based Business Web Site is a must have for any home business today! It shows that you are serious about your business and it can provide your customers with valuable information.

Why Have a Web Site

A home based business web site will perform several valuable functions for your business.

  • Presell your customers - In the prior to the home computer age, consumers relied upon the local Yellow Pages for finding a business that provided the product or service that they wanted. Today's computer savvy generation turns to the Internet instead. Your web site should tell them why they should do business with you.

  • Inexpensive advertising - Unlike a costly Yellow Page or newspaper ad, you can provide more and timely information to the consumer.

  • Provide easy contact - Email has become the preferred method of communications for many people. It is fast, easy and free.

  • Build a customer list - With the building of an email list from your customers you have a fast, easy, low cost method of communicating with your customers. The list can even be broken down into smaller segments for targeted marketing.

  • Build another income stream - If your home based business is focused on the local market, the Internet gives you the means of marketing to wider range of people by either targeted marketing or even selling to the world!

What It Takes

Depending on your needs, a home based business web site does not have to be an elaborate or expensive undertaking. The main requirements are that you have a domain name and a web hosting site where you would build your web site.

MarketingYour Business with Your Web Site

Your marketing strategy will vary according to the needs of your home based business. At the very least, you should have a web site that tells about your business and what products or services that you have to offer. Next, you want to make sure that your web site name is displayed where ever your business name is displayed.

It is highly recommended that you begin building a list. You do this by having an opt-in form on your web site. This gives you a list of people who are telling you that they are interested in doing business with you and want you to send them information about your business from time to time.

The use of social network sites like facebook, MySpace and Twitter is an exciting new way to extend your marketing, giving you another way to reach potential customers that you might not otherwise be able to reach, be it local or international. The social sites will help bring more customers to your business site.

Your home based business web site is one of the most important marketing tools that you can have today. Don't delay in getting it set up and letting people know it is there!
