Building a home business takes several key factors in order to make it
work. One crucial factor is Internet marketing that works to drive
traffic to your site and customers to your virtual or brick and mortar
door. There are several types of Internet marketing that can help grow
your home business. These include affiliate marketing, advertising on
other sites and newsletters, search engine optimization and writing
articles for the Web. Your home business Internet marketing has to start
with a great Web site, however. Your home business Web site is the focal
point of all other Internet marketing you do. Without a Web site that
promotes your home business and perhaps is even e-commerce enabled to
take payments for and arrange delivery of your home business products all
the other Internet marketing you do is just about worthless.

The first thing you should focus on, then, as you start your home
business, is building a dynamic Web site. Let’s look at the basic
ingredients of a business Web site that works.

First you must have a business plan and that home business plan will be
the guide you’ll use for your Web site. The site must have a purpose and
that purpose should be to promote your home business. Without a home
business mission and business plan, therefore, you won’t have a Web site
that succeeds. You also must know if your Web site is driving your
business. More often than not new netpreneurs will set out with all the
right equipment and ingredients such as bookkeeper, business plan and
staff, but won’t take the time or install the software that lets them
track the progress their home business is making on the Web.

That’s always puzzling. Why go to the trouble of setting your home
business up, making all the right moves to get started including Internet
marketing and not put in place the programs and products that will let
you know what worked? Sure, you might look at the bottom line and see
that it’s gone from red to black and think you have no need to track
further. But think about all the time and money you’re spending. Would
you and should you not want to know if the affiliate marketing is paying
its way, or if the search engine optimization is the best place to put
your money?

Yes, tracking the results of your Internet marketing is crucial to your
marketing strategies and your expenses.

Your Web site design is crucial. You don’t have to have the snazziest
site on the Web – unless of course, your business is selling snazzy site
building services. But you do need a site that’s attractive to look at,
easy to navigate and offers a clear look at your products and service.
You must identify yourself and provide easy to find contact information
that includes physical address. Folks who come to your Web site from a
distance can’t come to your brick and mortar location to meet you. You
might not even have a brick and mortar location. You must ease their
trepidation about giving their money and personal information to
strangers by personalizing yourself as much as you can.

Once you have your clear, attractive and easy to use Web site in place
you can begin to promote through Internet marketing.
