Home Business Ideas - Extreme Ways to Launch Your Home Business Profits

May 17, 2008
Sending the profits for your home business on a "rocket launch" is not easy to do, but if you follow these ten easy steps, you will soon be reaping in the profits. Remember that each one is individually important; together they are phenomenal.

The first thing you must do is find advertising venues that are eye-catching. Ads must command the readers' attention and hold it long enough to interest them. Advertising that is dull and boring will not sell anything. Colors, animations (if online) and an easy to find link or direction are mandatory.

If you have an internet presence, use banners, advertisements, and pop-up windows to get your visitors attention. The bigger the better. You want your ad to jump off of the page and reel the customer in.

Educate yourself about the internet, copy advertising, search engines, traffic exchanges, and other methods of advertising. No one knows everything. We all have something to learn. Try reading books, listening to cd's and dvd's, and participating in training sessions. Do whatever it takes to learn to do this job effectively.

Track and study your current advertising. See where your money has been well spent and where it is being wasted. Decide if the ad is what is not working or if the problem is the placement of the ad. An ad may be very good and very effective, but if it is ran in the wrong paper or placed on the wrong website, it is useless.

When a new customer calls or visits your website, get some information from them. Put them on your mailing list, ask them to register with your website, get them to allow you to send occasional e-mails with specials in them. The more the customer sees your business name, the better chance you have of getting new customers and repeat business.

If you have an internet presence and your banner ads are not working, use straight-up, old-fashioned text links. For some reason, some people will ignore the big, pretty ad and focus in on the underlined text. It is almost as if they feel the text link will have more credibility.

Click exchanges, traffic exchanges, and banner exchanges are all efficient and effective ways to get traffic to your site. You do this by agreeing to place someone else's banner on your site if they will agree to place your banner on theirs. This generally does not cost either party anything. The key is to get your banner or link on another website that is related to the topic of your website. That way you know that the people already on the other site are interested in the topic of your site.

If you are marketing a product, the worst thing you can do is run out. After you have been in business for awhile, you should be able to look at your sales numbers and figure out what the trends are for each product. Knowing when to stock more or less of any one product will mean the difference between keeping a customer and losing them to someone with more stock than you.

Don't overload your site with "junk". Customers should be able to navigate through it easily. The attention span of the average internet surfer is very short. Easy to find and read tips, links, articles, and buttons will maximize the usefulness and effectiveness of your website.

Try adding a discussion board or live chat to your web site. Make it interesting and be sure to advertise it and drive visitors to it. Customers that post to a discussion board will generally return to it to see if there are any responses. Combine these with a registration requirement, and you have an instant mailing list as well.

The above are a list of 10 extreme ways to rocket launch your home business profits. Follow them, all of them, and your profits will soar.
