How to Get Your Home Based Business Online in 7 Days or Less, Part I
Copyright 2006 Monique Hawkins

Once a home based business owner has decided on a niche
they will target for their business, the next step is to
get it online as quickly as possible. The good news is,
this does not have to be a time consuming process. However,
before one starts, keep these few concepts in mind:

1. Don't worry about perfection. Testing and tweaking will
have to be done so that your marketing campaign is done
right. You want to make sure you test what works so that
the same mistakes aren't constantly made. Testing has to be
done if any online home-based business will see any kind of
profit.

2. Don't spend tons of money on advertising until things
start converting! Learn from small windfalls and use the
profits to fund marketing.

3. Don't create another job for yourself. You want to be
sure you get things set up correctly from the start in
order to create multiple streams of income. This will allow
you to leverage your time. Get things automated as much as
possible as this helps tremendously with the time factor.

4. Invest in education. Keep updated on current events in
the marketing world. Attend seminars, purchase ebooks, and
listen to teleseminars. You don't have to spend thousands
of dollars, but do allot some money for investing in your
mind.

5. Don't have the get rich quick mentality. For any
business, it takes time and effort to develop and be
successful. This won't happen overnight!

Now, we are ready to start getting your business online
quickly. Let's get going with Day 1.

Day 1: Register a domain name and get a hosting account.
Make sure you have made a list of the keywords you want to
target for your online home business. Remember to use tools
such as Wordtracker, Good Keywords, Google's Sandbox Tool,
or others to create a keyword list.

Once you have your list, it's time to register a domain
name. Godaddy is good because its inexpensive, makes domain
management easy, and offers free forwarding and domain
parking. Of course, there are others for you to check out
as well such as hostway.com and networksolutions.com. You
can also go to Google and type in "domain registration" and
many more options will come up. What you want to do is to
search for available domains using the most profitable
keywords.

After you have registered a domain name, you will need to
find a good hosting account. Be aware that hosting can go
from zero cost to hundreds of dollars per month. Here are a
few important things to remember when host searching:

1. Make sure it is reasonably priced. You don't need to pay
over $20 per month.

2. Make sure it allows you to have full FTP Access. This
means you are able to transfer files from your computer to
the server.

3. Make sure there is enough server space. This is the
amount of space your web sites take up on the server. Most
websites don't take up much and don't have more than a few
MB's of space.

4. Email Accounts: The hosting company should allow for at
least 5 POP email accounts. These are just a few things to
consider when host hunting.

Day 2 and 3: Website Design and Content

The important point to remember for day 2 and 3 is to keep
it simple! This is especially important if you are selling
an ebook. You will need a good headline that will grab
visitor's attention quickly. You will also need to connect
with them and show them you have the best answers to their
particular problem. It does not have to take pages and
pages for this. A few pages are really all that is needed.
If you feel writing sales copy is too overwhelming, you can
always outsource the project and post it on a site such as
elance.com.

Getting a niche home based business online does not have to
difficult or time consuming. It can be done quickly and
easily. Follow the above steps and get started today.
