How to start a Home BusinessWritten by Carolyn B Smith
Let me first tell you why I started my home business. Retiring after 30 years of service with post office, my income was reduced by 50%. I needed to supplement my income. I knew that I did not want to go back to a forty hour per week job in order to do this, so I decided to start a home based business.
Just like me, I am sure that your first obstacle is what am I going to do and how can I do it? Do I want an online store or residual income? After about two weeks of searching for a suitable business, I discovered that with right resources, one can do both. After initial setup, you will be able to work 15 to 20 hours per week. The whole key to whether business sinks or swims is traffic. If you donít get people to site, there is no sell. The same thing does not work all time; therefore, you must test and retest. To generate traffic you must work, build e-mail list, write articles to name a few but do something each day.
There are many home business companies on internet who, will be there with you to support you on your path to making thousands of dollars. In choosing your business, you will see many which require a small investment; however donít expect to make millions without making an investment. There are some freebies but not a lot. You must research each opportunity and choose what is best suitable

One of tactics I love to employ in landing of new clients is something I call an "Info Storm."
Here's basic idea. You meet a new prospect, go over solutions you have for and then jointly decide on some next steps involved in them hiring you. Now, most people go away promising to send a proposal or follow-up in some manner. But, what also happens it that 3 other people slip in later that day and make a fine proposal for that same piece of business. So, what do you do to keep your name on top of stack as decision process unfolds?
Most people just do what they said they would do or worse. Others pick-up phone and "check-in." Here's what I suggest you do.
Don't beg for business, make yourself obvious choice.
* By end of week, find a way to refer a prospect or necessary contact to your lead
