Here some tips I have learned over the years on what is needed to run a business from home…
First you must know what your goal is and what you want to accomplish. If you want to help people make money then you need to know how to get the product that shows them how to make money and delivered to them with finesse.
Here are some of the fundamentals of a business from home with your own product:
- Do a market research for your business.
- Build a product or use one you already have.
- Have a website and/or blog.
- Have an email autoresponder service like Aweber.
- Have Capture Pages or Squeeze Pages to funnel your subcribers.
- Have a Merchant Account ( Paypal, InfusionSoft, Google Network, etc… )
- Build an email swipe file to send to your subscribers.
- Get Traffic to your website.
Here are the fundamentals of a business from home without a product:
- Do market research for the product keywords.
- Build a website and/or blog ( Not Necessary But Recommended )
- Get an email autoresponder service like Aweber.
- Join Affiliate Networks to sell anyone else’s product like Clickbank, Linkshare, CJ.com, Amazon Affiliate Program and many others if you do a Google search.
- Get traffic to the affiliate products.
Option # 3 – Join a complete done for you system like Elite Marketing Pro that is practically automated for you, has great training and shows you how to run your business from home and ready for you to get traffic to the system.
The differences on the surface are you don’t need a product if you decide to go with the Affiliate Marketing method.
Capture pages are sometimes available and if not you need to build some. Why? You need to get your visitors and prospects at minimum their email information. Without this you will never make it in a home business…Fact!
However, if you decide to go with your own product than it is very rewarding but be ready for many challenges and possibly a costly undertaking. Before you take on this kind of project on you must do a very thorough market research and have an answer to your, Why?
Other key and important things to run a business from home is Time Management. You need a checklist that keeps you focused on productive tasks.

Making money online is just as simple as you might think but unfortunately most people over-complicate the whole darn process.
This is why their is always a huge market for entrepreneurs like me who help others seeking to build a Real business online.
