Looking For A Home Based Business Opportunity? K.I.S.S.!
Ray Croc, the founder of the most successful and most recognized restaurant chain in the world, once coined the fraise, "Keep It Simple Stupid" or K.I.S.S. for short. He recognized very early on that simple is good that simple is the most productive way to run a business. This simple concept is what has driven the McDonalds franchise into the monster it is today.
If you are looking to be successful in a home based business of your own then why not stick with a concept that works, simplicity? How can we find such a business opportunity? E-A-S-Y! Affiliate Programs!
Ask yourself this, what home based business do I know of where I don't need to concern myself with inventory, storage, packing, shipping, complaints, returns, phone calls, emails, checks and credit cards, etc.? When your only concern running your home based business is generating traffic to your affiliate links, your life is immensely less complicated and less stressed then it would be running your home based business in the traditional sense!
Generating traffic to your affiliate links is accomplished the same way as you would generate traffic to any internet business. You will want to have your own website. Yahoo makes it very simple to set up your own website using their free SiteBuilder application and they will host your site as well for extremely reasonable prices. Your website dose not have to be fancy. It's only job is to display your affiliate links. Once people click on your affiliate links, then they will be taken to a fancy website. At the top of your website put a brief description about what your site is about. With each of your affiliate programs put a brief description of what is being offered along with your affiliate link at the end. Do not divulge too much information about your affiliate product or service because then people will "think" they know what it's all about and loose interest. Just enough of a description to stimulate their curiosity is enough. Let your affiliate website do all the selling!
Make sure to put Cost-Per-Click(CPC) advertising on your website such as Google AdSense. Google makes it very simple to put their AdSense on your website and it's free! The ads displayed will be relevant to the content of your website and you will be paid a commission every time someone clicks on one of the ads. Doing business online is a numbers game. Most people who will go to your website will not buy from you, they will look around and leave. Think about it, if someone is going to leave your website, with or without buying, wouldn't you rather they left through a link that will pay you every time someone clicks on it? A very substantial part of your income will come from Cost-Per-Click advertising.
Once your website is up and running there are a number of ways to drive traffic to it. Here are two of the best. They are also free!
Start your own Blog. This is a great way to drive free traffic to your website! Google will even give you your own Blog site for free at Blogger.com and it's simple to set up. Having your own Blog and making daily posts will with time establish you as an authority figure in peoples minds on whatever topic your Blog is about. With time people will come to trust and believe in you, and people will buy much more readily from people they know and trust. As peoples confidence in you grow some of them will want to see what you have to offer them by checking out your website.
Writing articles and submitting them to article submission sites is a great way to drive lots of free traffic to your website. Just remember to put your bio along with a link to your website at the bottom of each article you submit. The search engines will spider your articles word for word, and when people search online for information using keywords or phrases that are in your articles, they will turn up on the search results along with a link to your website so be sure to include highly searched for keywords and phrases!
