Set Up An Affordable Work From Home Business

Aug 27, 2008
You want to work from home because of how appealing the thoughts are of having no boss, wearing the clothes you choose, and making your own schedule each and every day. So what's stopping you then? I'm sure you have tons of excuses and one of the popular but not true reasons for not starting any of your great small business ideas is "it's too expensive". That excuse just doesn't cut it in this day and age so read on to find out how you can start up with not much financial commitment.

If you're thinking about starting one of the online business ideas that you have, there are a few crucial but cheap things you'll need to take care of. First off is registering a good domain name as well as choosing a host to keep your new website. Domain names are not expensive to register these days. For about 7 dollars a year you can register your new name for your home based business. Decent web hosting will probably run you about 10 dollars a month.

Remember that when you are choosing your new domain name make it something short, memorable, and easy to pronounce. Admittedly it is harder and harder to find good creative domain names that are not taken yet but if you brainstorm and try enough combinations you will definitely find something that works for your business from home.

Once you have sorted out your domain name and hosting issues you'll want to set up your small business's website. Don't be scared off and say "I'm not a designer and I also can't afford thousands of dollars to hire one". These days if you look into website creation software and also free blogging software like Word Press you should have no trouble setting up a decent looking website in no time with very little cost.

Lastly you'll want to print yourself up some decent looking business cards to give out to people. Lots of people think that because they have an online business they don't need business cards but that isn't true at all. For less then fifty dollars you can get some decent cards printed up that will serve as your promotional tool when you're out and about in the town or with friends and people ask you what you do.

So don't get caught in the mind state of not starting your great online business ideas just because you think it will be too expensive. The truth is that it's not expensive to try out your ideas and promote yourself if it's done properly.
