Home Business Writing Made Simple

Written by Dan J. Fry

Have you ever written a letter to a friend? Ever written an outline for any project you were about to start? What about a shopping list? If you have, and I imagine most have, you then can write focused, brief, content articles for your online home business.

Why write? Well, of course you can spend lots of money to drive traffic to your site with absolutely no guarantee that you will obtain a single sale. Moreover, most ofrepparttar traffic, although targeted, may leave your site and forget it ever existed. Writing puts you personally, your site, and your products/services withinrepparttar 116885 same framework as a well-honed opt-in list of subscribers. People remember you, learn to trust you, eventually purchase from you, and most importantly return to purchase again and again, as long as you continue to offer what they need.

"So how can I simplify what seems to berepparttar 116886 arduous task of writing", you ask?

Try this:

(1) Take out pen and paper and go someplace quiet where you can triggerrepparttar 116887 creative side of your brain. (Yes, I said pen and paper. Don't sit in front ofrepparttar 116888 computer for this exercise.)

(2) Sit back and think for a moment about your online home business. What do you offer? What have you learned so far about building traffic? Have you noticed any patterns for certain promotion methods that work? What about anything that can be considered well needed advice to others just starting out?

(3) Now write downrepparttar 116889 first thoughts that come to your mind. Don't edit. Your not at that stage yet. Just writerepparttar 116890 ideas, and do this for several minutes, or until you have at least a single page filled up.

(4) Done? Good. Now go back torepparttar 116891 top ofrepparttar 116892 list. Slowly go through and honerepparttar 116893 ideas. Anything that pops out as particularly intriguing or immediately brings up related ideas mark off forrepparttar 116894 next step. These arerepparttar 116895 ones to develop further.

I'm Broke, How Can I Afford...

I’m still amazed every time someone comes to me complaining that they don’t have any money to put into their business and that they’re broke. I mean what have you been doing with your money man?!?

Plain Truth: If you don’t have any money you won’t make it my friend… it’s that simple. You have to at least have some money. Say $200-$500. I don’t care whatrepparttar 116889 self-styled slick gurus tell you. If you’re flat out of cash your dead inrepparttar 116890 water before you can even start.

Now let me tell you another thing…. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE BROKE! You’re a liar and a self deluded one at that if you think you are.

I mean how many Starbucks or soda do you drink a day? How many beers a week do you drink? How many cigarettes do you smoke? How much meat do you eat? How many new clothes have you bought inrepparttar 116891 last month? How many “gifts” have you just had to buy? How many magazines or newspapers have you bought this month? How many CD’s? How many snacks? How much candy do you eat a week? How many TV dinners? How much fast food have you been eating? How much did you spend onrepparttar 116892 lottery? How much did your TV cost you? How much money do you give to your church? How much are your monthly car payments?

So these are really essential to living are they?…. No they’re not, they’re self-indulgent habits! Nothing wrong with that if you can AFFORD them. But you tell me you’re broke! Wake up! Ding-dong!

I used to walkrepparttar 116893 streets with no-more than $3 bucks in my pocket to last merepparttar 116894 day. Yes I did that for months on end until something happened. I got mad, real mad. Not atrepparttar 116895 world but with myself.

You see I have always had a dream of being personally free, being self-reliant, totally in charge of my time and cash flow, beholden to no-one... not government, not masters, not gurus.

Now walking around with $3 bucks aient much fun. It hurts inrepparttar 116896 pit of your stomach. And when I only had $7 a day to feed my family (yup there were others my pathetic state was impacting) I can tell you, I felt at times of doing something pretty dumb to my body and mind… and occasionally did.

If you live inrepparttar 116897 Western world, you live inrepparttar 116898 richest part ofrepparttar 116899 planet withrepparttar 116900 most opportunitiesrepparttar 116901 world has ever seen at any point inrepparttar 116902 history ofrepparttar 116903 human race.

If you want to see poverty take a trip to India or any other developing country. I have, and what I saw made me realize my $3 a day “poverty-trap” was simply an ego-trip. Kids working from 5am to 10pm every day for crumbs of bread. Rags and bones. So please don’t tell me you’re broke and poor, you don’t knowrepparttar 116904 meaning ofrepparttar 116905 word.
