Coastal Vacations – www.closethesale.netfirms.com AmeriPlan USA – http://www.deliveringonthepromise.com/tjj33 List of Home Businesses - www.homebusiness.com The next step is to Develop a Business Name. The name you choose for your business will depend on what type of business you would like to open. Pick a name that describes your business and tells something about who you are. Your local government office can help you get your name registered in state you reside. Note: this step is not necessary if you decide to start a small home business. If you need additional help go here - www.sba.gov and www.familyhaven.com Now, once you have completed first two steps you are ready to start promoting your business. This process can be a bit tedious, but in end it is well worth it. Here are a list of sites that can help you promote your business via Search Engines, Directories, FFA Sites, Email Marketing and Classified Ads: www.google.com, www.addme.com, www.sendtronix.com/aff/999, www.adlandpro.com THIS STEP IS THE MOST IMPORTANT!!!! KEEP RECORDS OF ALL FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS RELATED TO YOUR HOME BASED BUSINESS. There are literally thousands of deductions you can take as a home based business. These deductions alone can add up to a substantial refund at end of each tax year. Accurate record keeping is essential. Every transaction you make in relation to your business could result in a large tax refund at end of year. Keep record of everything…advertising expenses, monthly membership expenses, travel expenses, electricity, heat, rent/mortgage expense, water, telephone, equipment purchased, repair and maintenance, etc. There are a number of applications available that can help you keep record (Quicken, Microsoft Money). Make sure you have this information available for your accountant or tax preparer each year. This will simplify process.

The art of backend sellingWritten by Doug Titchmarsh
Continued from page 1
Here is a story of a backend sale I once had which illustrates how it can work for you. I had a customer purchase a membership to a safelist I was running, but he then decided that it didn't work for him. He requested his money back, which I happily supplied, but added to end of email that he may like to try a different way of advertising, and I was an affiliate for a company which could offer him an alternative. I received an affiliate payment for 50% of a $60 sale, on back of returning $5 membership fee. Now that was good enough for me to realise value in backend sale.
Try it out for yourself, on your thank you page add a link to a complementary product your customer can purchase on his way off your site. Your bank manager will love you for it.
