Working at home in a business on your own, and having responsibility for managing yourself and allrepparttar specialist functions ofrepparttar 148572 business, has been my theme forrepparttar 148573 last 3 articles in this series.

One ofrepparttar 148574 most important departments in any company isrepparttar 148575 marketing department. That particular “specialist” function is one that is critical to any business, small or large, online or offline. Now you are working alone in your own internet business, you arerepparttar 148576 one who has to know:

· what internet marketing options are open to you;

· how to select which ways to promote your business and website;

· how you will budget for your advertising and other internet promotions;

· how you will monitorrepparttar 148577 success of your different internet and advertising promotions once they get started.

· how to managerepparttar 148578 marketing of your business so that it is synchronized withrepparttar 148579 other key aspects ofrepparttar 148580 business, especially finance.

Internet marketing is a massive and ever changing subject, so I will make absolutely no attempt to cover it in detail here. There is a considerable amount of material available for free onrepparttar 148581 internet. All I can say is: absorb as much as you can and then try to take a down to earth view of it. That is what I have done inrepparttar 148582 past, and have not got my fingers burnt withrepparttar 148583 internet marketing ebooks I have paid for.

You are very likely to find that marketing is a major expense in your online business, whether it be on information, advertising, or time saving products and services. If you spend a lot of time online researching internet marketing, you will be exposed to a cascade of options. Some of those options will be a magnet for your wallet, others will just be a waste of your valuable time; some will be both. This is why you will benefit from viewing things as a manager would, especially when wearingrepparttar 148584 finance hat.

If you do not manage your new online business, it will mismanage you and your bank account. You cannot risk going withrepparttar 148585 flow, when you are totally unaware of whererepparttar 148586 flow is heading, and that is especially true of marketing. However, all marketing has an element of risk, as has starting your own business. Findingrepparttar 148587 right balance is not easy.
