Despite up to 95% of online businesses failing and mothers not having a lot of "spare time", setting up and running a Home Based Internet Business doesn't have to be complex nor expensive nor time consuming.
And if you've done it right, even failing doesn't need to cost much in both time and money. Learn from it, get over it and move on.
You only really fail when you give up!
So are benefits of Internet Marketing.
The ability to at least set yourself up to be able to sell to a global audience for next to nothing in next to no time from your own home gives modern mothers tremendous business leverage both in time and money.
However cyberspace is vast and if you try to get your head around whole Internet galaxy you'll need several years.
I'm assuming you don't have this timeframe so I've listed 2 key steps mothers should consider, to make a B line for extra online profits in comfort of your own home.
Like every marketer online, you'll need something to sell. Don't worry if right now you've got absolutely no idea what to sell. It may take several months to hone in on a product.
Now good marketing practices dictate that you first find a target market then present them with products you believe they'd want.
If you can follow this principle, that's wonderful but if not, i.e. you might already have a product and not sure who to market it to, then don't worry.
An example of this might be that you currently make smocking items or craft items etc on a regular basis. Perhaps you'd rather try and sell your (and other's) items instead of letting them build up in cupboard.
Once you have a product and hopefully a target market you need to:
1. Set up your sales system on payapl, ebay, and/or Yahoo and get your own website.
Once you've found a product and have a good photo and description, advertise it on ebay and/or Yahoo auctions to test demand. This will cost you next to nothing so long as you have a credit card to open a paypal, ebay and/or Yahoo auction account.
