Best of Create an Awesome Home Business

Celebratory BalloonsOne of the problems with a blog is that the older an article becomes, the deeper it gets buried in the archives.

And that’s a shame because it means that some very good articles are often never seen by newer readers.

So I figured I’d do a ‘best of’ series. Once a month or so I’ll go back through the archives and pick out articles that got a lot of views, or a lot of comments, or simply have a message I think is good.

And I’ll post the links in a new article.

So here, then, is the first ‘Best of Create an Awesome Home Business’.

This one contains 5 steps for people new to working online to help you get through the ‘dip’ – that period after you start working online when you’re becoming disillusioned and ready to try something else:

Just Wait Till You Quit

In the same vein, here’s one that’s also designed to help you if you’re not yet seeing the success you thought you’d be seeing by now. What you’ve done and what you’ve learned in getting to where you are has given you some important skills:

Create an Additional Income Stream

This one’s quite recent but, for me, it holds a critically important message for anyone trying to make money from blogging. And it’s a message that a surprisingly large number of bloggers don’t get:

Sell Something

Twitter has been one of the longer-lasting success stories in the world of social networking. That said, I still see people working online who deride it.

Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, of course, but here’s how I use Twitter – and it’s brought me new business as well as exponentially growing the traffic to my sites. Be sure to read all the way to the bottom of the comments, because this one generated some interesting arguments:

Is Twitter the New List?

Although the title of this one is about marketing an MLM business, what it contains applies to any online business. Here, then, are some effective (and cost-effective) ways to promote your online business:

How to Market Your New Business

OK – that’s it. I’ll do another ‘best of’ in a month or so.

    Hi Martin
    Great idea… a best of post.
    Something that most of us could do in the future, once we have a best of. LOL

    In your Create an additional income stream post you say… “you would quite likely very soon find yourself looking at an opportunity to put up a website for them”

    This is something I have done for local businesses and it has worked fairly well.

    I’ll take a quick look at your other “best of.”

      Hi Keith,

      Yes – doing websites for people is actually a growing revenue stream for me, and one that I’d never have thought about when I started out.

      Glad it’s working for you as well 🙂
