Start A Work From Home Business
This is a new website “Work From Home” and will be about just that. We are seeking professionals to help develop the site as it grows. It looks like I may just have to do it myself. I am taking my 18 years of internet experience and use it to make a user friendly site for people working from home. I personally enjoy getting on the compute and making websites. Doing website for other people is not what I do. I tried making websites for other people back in the late 90’s. I found people are very picky when they are paying for a website. They would nit pick me to death. That came to a quick end and I went into just doing free websites for people when I wanted to do them. Here is an example of a friend that has a window cleaning business that runs from Baton Rouge t o Slidell LA. His business is on the first page of the search engines in almost all the cities in the area. The last city I am working on is window cleaning Baton Rouge. It is about time I turn the free service I provide into a money maker. This is something to think about when starting your work from home business. If you enjoy what you are doing now as a hobby then you may want to keep it just that.
Join some social sites with your work from home business name and logo and then learn how to use them. You probably all ready have a Facebook account. That is a good place to start. Just make sure you do not blast it all over Facebook because the friends you have there may unfriend or block your post. Instead start a Facebook page and/or group to use to market your business. Nobody wants to get bombarded by advertisement and this eliminates this issue. Many of us have made that mistake including myself. Facebook has other ways to market your business. That and many other things will be covered on this website in time.

If the website address is available, then you should purchase the address also known as domain name . Most people start with a domain name that is the same name as their business or the main thing you will be marketing or selling. In my case I started with a domain name close to the name of a popular product.
