This is something I’ve been thinking about for some time. What do you actually need to do to make you Home Business Successful?

Treat your Business like a Business

If you play at it, it’ll never happen. Only by treating your business as a real entity, will you be able to more forward with it. Will it take time and effort? Yes, but you’re building up something here to provide for your future, so treat it like it should be treated.

Don’t be Shy

You can afford a huge marketing business, so how will people know you’re there and ready to help them? For “alternative” ideas, have a look at Guerrilla Marketing by Jay Conrad Levinson

Ask for Referrals

If your customers like your products (and they should, they bought them, and you followed up with your great customer service), ask them to tell their friends. After all, a personal recommendation is worth FAR more then an impersonal ad in a paper to a prospective customer.

Avoid Unnecessary Expenses

Manage Cash Flow

Stay on top of any money owed, and at least attempt to project your income over a few weeks. Cash is going out as well as in, and taking careful note of both is essential.
