I know myself very well the constraints of having a home based business. There are many issues at hand including the costs, family, time, dedication, the negative influence of others close to you, and the list can go on forever. No matter what you are doing in the home based business world the one thing that will make the difference is none other than you! You have to be prepared emotionally for all that is listed above and more. Having a website is an essential tool to getting the work out there, let's face it hoe often are you distracted during the day by something like Facebook, Twitter, or Google+? Very few of us can deny this happens. What your missing here is the perfect way to harness your distractions and turn them into a positive result for your business. In a website you can incorporate a blog auto feed this to your social networks and write about your passion (Your Business) and at the same time build an amazing web around your home business. You also need to treat your business like a business. Dedicate a time to start and a time to end, wake up and get dressed (Dress for success) you never know if today is the day you might meet that one connection that will break down that wall and be the driving force you need to leave everyone and everything that hindered you in the dust. A website should be one of the first things you develop for your business. You can always direct potential clients to a website and they can send referrals there as well. If you go off business cards eventually that trail will end. You can have someone out there talking about you but not have your business card then what? The trail ends cold. You will want to also do some research because a lot of times your business name is not always what you want for your domain name. You want something that your clients will be searching on the internet and come across your website. Your company name is something you should be proud of but needs to be used correctly, such as in the header to your website and on your other marketing materials. Keep this in mind. A good company will not be trying to up-sell you every step of the way they will be giving you tips on how to land on your feet and boost your business using the tools you may not even realize you already have.
