Start Work At Home Business
Is it really possible these days to get it right?

Start work at home business - It's easier than ever before!

If you are interested in using the Internet when starting a home business, then making your own website will be the most important foundation of your business.

People use the web as a searching tool, searching for highly specific information or answers.  How many times has someone said, "Google it!" in your presence? You probably even say it as well.

When you change roles from a searcher of information to a provider of information, that's when you can become an online business owner.

The best home business opportunity online for the average person, in my opinion, is to create a theme based content website.  

A theme based content site offers information based upon a main theme or subject.

Each page or article on that site focuses upon a single topic that is related to that overall theme.

The net sum of all the information on all of your pages forms the content of your website.  To accomplish this goal, you have to find a "Site Concept" that suits you to build your business successfully.

What is a Site Concept? 
Start Work At Home Business - Pillar #1

To get more specific, a site concept is the central theme, or the niche, upon which you will create your website content once you make the commitment to start work at home business.

It's basically a keyword or phrase you will use to write the information or the content of your home page.

In addition, you will create more and more pages all related to your main Site Concept.

Let me give you one example:

The first website I created was  "Chocolate candy" is a site concept, or the most important website keyword.  It's the central theme and the keyword phrase assigned to the home page.

But there are also hundreds of other pages on the site, each one a Keyword-Focused-Content-Page targeting keywords related to chocolate, fudge, candy molds, party favors, and other sub-categories related to the main site concept, "Chocolate Candy." It was a perfect choice because I LOVE chocolate! :)

Maybe you are a passionate dog lover. You could have a site concept about a specific dog breed, like Labradors. You can then expand to write about dog kennels, dog collars, training techniques and more - since the same base of visitors who look for information about "Labradors" are naturally interested in those other topics as well.

When you start work at home business, before settling on your Site Concept, ask yourself a few important questions:

  • Is my site concept topic "big enough" that I can comfortably spread out and write a whole lot of pages?
  • Is anyone actually looking for the information that I want to write about?
  • How much time can I spend on my website? If it is just a few hours a week - go with a narrower niche - it's easier to rise in the search results and win traffic.

    If you are determined that this will be a big part of your retirement or even something that will give you the possibility of leaving your 9-to-5 job, then go with a broad enough topic that can expand and grow with you over time.

When pursuing this home business opportunity online, there's a pretty simple pattern to follow:

  • Choose a good niche topic.
  • Plan your monetization.
  • Think through your site concept and voice, how you plan to position yourself in your niche to present your own unique angle.
  • Pick your domain.
  • Write your content. Original material. Information that matters to you and that your prospective visitors want.
  • Get links. From a variety of sources.
  • Keep it real.
  • Grow your targeted search traffic.
  • Monetize.

As my husband always says, "It sounds easy when you say it fast!" :) Believe it or not, when starting a business from home, it really is easier than you think when you have the right tools, the right instructions, and the right plan to follow.
