Run Your Home Based Business Like A Real Business

Home based business something you have been thinking about starting? There are a lot of things to consider when you work from home. If you need help getting through the do’s and don’ts of a business you run out of your home, then this article will give you the help you need, so that you understand how to make it successful.

Home based businesses are a subject of which there is a lot of bad information. Make sure you do research on any opportunity you are considering pursuing. You want to make sure you see reviews that are written by independent people, not those who are getting a cut every time the program is sold.

If you plan to operate your home based business while remaining employed by a larger company, you should ensure that you are not actively competing with your employer. Not only is this bad business and borderline unethical, but it can also have severe legal repercussions further down the road. When in doubt, take the safest route.

Before you begin a home based business, you need to develop a business plan that maps out the course of your business, including your financial expectations. You should be willing to spend some time writing this out because if you need investment partners, they will expect you to have adequately researched your business and have the ability to present your ideas well.

Consult with your accountant to find out about the tax deductions that are available to you when you run a home based business. You can usually claim a dedicated room in your house as your office and take deductions for supplies, equipment and gas mileage that are related to your home based business.

A home based businesses is special in that you make your own schedule and are your own boss. However, a good tip to consider is to employ a close friend as an adviser. Often times you can be seduced to be far too leisurely with it because it is from your own home. Having that friend as an adviser will help keep you honest about the business.

Testimonials can be a powerful marketing aid for your home based business. You should ask for endorsements from the users of your products or services at every opportunity. Concentrate especially on those who receive free samples of your wares. Sample recipients are not only inclined to be more positive, they feel generally more obligated to provide testimonials.

Choose a name for your home based business that has meaning for you. Having an interesting name can make customers curious about your business, which means they may even ask you what it is and how you got the name. Make sure it has an interesting story behind it and you may soon find yourself with loyal customers.

Give incentives to your customers for referring their friends to your business. Word of mouth is the most powerful way of advertising because the recommendation of a friend is always more reliable than any flyer that you can send. Incentives also encourage your existing customers to remain loyal to you and your home based business.

Manage your time and priorities to allow the main operations to be completed efficiently and properly. This may sound to be obvious, but there are many that fail to realize time and priority management as such an essential practice. Managing time and priorities ensures that you give your main operations the best focus and most efficient care possible.

You can write off the cost of new furniture, electronics and other expensive items for your office, on your tax returns. Having an up-to-date computer and a comfortable work-space, can help your efficiency greatly. However, to avoid trouble with audits, make sure that anything you write off is being used mostly or exclusively for your business.

When making the decision of starting a home based business, it is important for you to pick a subject that you are familiar with. Remember, you own the business, so you do not want to have the responsibility of having to deal with customers’ problems and not knowing what to do about these problems.

As was stated at the beginning of this article, having a home based business requires a lot of work and follow up in many different areas. The tips and suggestions here should help anyone who already has or is hoping to start a home based business make it more successful.

Fantastic article from INC magazine.

Great to see such success.

Shark Tank’s Accidental Entrepreneur: Robert Herjavec

This CEO sold his last company to Nokia for $225 million. Now he’s aiming for a billion-dollar business. Here’s how Robert Herjavec went from penniless Canadian immigrant to Ferrari-racing celebrity.

If you recognize this man, it’s likely from the TV show Shark Tank, on which he analyzes and invests in companies alongside real-estate agency entrepreneur Barbara Corcoran, HDNet owner Mark Cuban, and branding expert Daymond John. But Robert Herjavec isn’t just an on-air personality; he’s also a serial entrepreneur who founded and runs the fastest-growing technology company in Canada. Herjavec—whose family arrived in Halifax after escaping the former Yugoslavia when he was 8—is a master of exits. He sold his first venture to AT&T; his second was purchased by Nokia for $225 million. And to think: He didn’t even want to be an entrepreneur. Inc.’s Christine Lagorio spoke with Herjavec about his unique entrepreneurial path, his investment strategy, and his recent cameo on a celebrity gossip show.

My review of ViralURL…

So you have finally stepped into the world of making money online. You too, like the others, have decided to start with the affiliate programs. Also, you must have heard that it’s not a big deal to make good money with affiliate marketing, provided you choose the right programs and do some strategic planning while promoting your affiliate products. So far so good.

Whether you are promoting other people’s products or promoting your own products – that doesn’t matter because after all it is nothing but your own business and your means to earn good money. So whichever be your case, I am sure you would not want to leave money on the table and invite others to steal your share of profit.

Even though the industry of affiliate marketing is pretty competitive but if you are cautious and are strategic in your marketing techniques then, it could be very profitable for you.

Take a close look at the industry, you will see that not every one who gets into affiliate marketing is successful. People who are doing well leave no room for failure and take all security measures and understand its importance.

Yes! Security is one of the key factors in affiliate marketing. If you do not adopt proper security measures, then your business will be at high risk. One of the most important way to restore security is to protect your affiliate links. Do not take them for granted. A bit of carelessness on your part in regards to affiliate links may cost you a lot of dollars.

Do you know the long complicated links that you send to your prospective customers not only look convoluted but they can create a lot of problems too! If you send such an affiliate link to your customers, then the smart ones will definitely figure out that you are promoting someone else’s product and they would rather visit the parent company. Also, if your link does not function then your customers have to type a really long URL into the browser, which will definitely put him or her off.

You could be a victim of even a worse situation. What if some devious Internet pirates steal your affiliate links and replace them with theirs. If they do that, then you get no commission at all.

Did I scare you off with all of the above possibilities? Well, that certainly wasn’t my intention. I just wanted to open your eyes and state facts that actually happen in the world of Internet. It happened with me until I came across ViralURL , that brought a revolution to my online ventures.

Key Traits of Successful People

Great article in Huffington Post about the  common traits of successful people.

Definitely worth a read and consideration.

Which character traits do you need to have if you want to work effectively and get ahead? The answer depends, to some extent, on the kind of work you do — but there’s one trait that everyone needs to have if they want to succeed, and that’s trustworthiness. Technically, it’s not so much being trustworthy, but being perceived as trustworthy, that matters. You can be as honest, fair, and reliable as the day is long, but if nobody else sees you that way, it won’t help you.

When your boss doesn’t trust you, you don’t get key assignments, promotions or the latitude to do things your own way and take risks. When your colleagues and employees don’t trust you, you don’t get their best effort, or all the information you need from them to make good decisions.

If you want other people to believe that you are trustworthy, you should be aware that you may be seriously undermining that belief if you appear to lack self-control. New research shows that people just won’t trust you when you seem like you might have a willpower problem. If you think about it, this makes a lot of intuitive sense. We trust people because we know that when things get hard, or when it might be tempting for them to put their own interests first, they’ll resist temptation and do what’s right.

Studies show that when you engage in behaviors that are indicative of low self-control, your trustworthiness is diminished. In other words, all those things you know you shouldn’t do — smoking, overeating, impulsive spending, being lazy, late, disorganized, excessively emotional or having a quick temper — may be even worse for you than you ever realized, because of the collateral damage they are doing to your reputation.

So if you want to be trusted, you’re going to have to conquer these trust saboteurs. To do that, you’ll need to understand how willpower really works, and how you can get your hands on some more of it.
