A website is lifeline of internet home business. In order to succeed you must have a website that that meets the general criteria of accepted standards. Flavor of each site varies according to the intended business and choice of the owner. But there are guidelines which should be kept in mind while you work to develop your own e-shop.
First of all is the domain name. It is the address to your website. So it should be kept simple and easy to remember. Try as for as possible to include letters only in your website name. Numbers are most easily forgotten. So are the hyphens and underscores. They take time to get registered and fade quickly. Domain names should be themed around your business. Try to keep it short and sweet.
Focus on your customer. Always keep your customers first. Remember! Everybody is busy and so are your customers. Nobody will have the time to search for your products if you do not guide them well. With this in mind a website should be developed for maximum benefit. There are other things which appear small and obvious but together they add up to quite a difference to your home business.

Great thread,

This certainly makes a good point. Business is growing daily on the internet. If you want to sell your products or services online you must learn some basics of online business building.

All you need to do is look around and see what people in a particular niche are buying, and then get your offer in front of some targeted traffic.

There are literally thousands of niche markets and thousands of solutions being offered. I would suggest trying to focus on an area that you have a good working knowledge of... something you can speak of with some expertise. This will make your marketing experience seem more like a hobby than a second job.

Here are just a few pointers:

Fast download time...
...regularly updated, original and well-focussed, keyword-savvy content...
...a lot of back up material on other easily navigable pages (so the visitor feels you really are an expert on the subject!)...
...something to encourage visitor participation (survey, questionnaire with a freebie for filling it in)...
...a form for the visitor to sign up to your newsletter (you do have a newsletter, don't you???)...

It will also benefit from:

...a unique selling proposition...
...a personal touch...
...contact details...
...an about me page...
...credible testimonials...

That's a great list Bobchrist!

That kind of list tends to go viral whether the list writer intended it or not - there was another "50 ways-to-get-traffic-to-your-site" list that I saw on another forum, and then started seeing it pop up elsewhere too... People love lists, so another great way to attract traffic is to write one yourself and then invite people to copy it (with your link included) and use it on their sites, blogs, etc.

===

Another way to get your site exposed free is to sign up to Creative Commons (creativecommons.org) and allow other people to COPY your original content... check out the site if you think that sounds nuts - it makes far more sense to give away your original content in exchange for LINKS back to your site than to get "a..l retentive" about your copyright...
:D

You should get a good domain name that is easily brand-able, and recognizable. You can make it short and sweet. Stay away from keyword domains and aim for branding and name recognition. Keywords in a domain name hold more value now to search engines than ever before.
Make your site design simple. Textual content needs to always out weight the html and also the visual content make sure you check that your pages are valid and usable in everything from Lynx to the most obscure of browsers.

To start a home business it is better to have your own website. There are many web-based services available on the internet will allows you to build your own site and they charge a small amount on monthly basis. After building your own web site, see that you keep your site up to date of all your offers and services. Your main job is to draw the traffic by giving some attractive offers.

Every business has to have a model of what the owner wants to accomplish. Most of these home business models start you off talking to your friends and family, spending hours promoting and even calling people you don't even know.

It really is that easy to start your journey. Imagine operating a business that takes practically no time and returns enough money so you are able to enjoy the travel discounts you will receive. What are you waiting for? Get over to the site and get the details before everyone else does!

A lot of people don't want to talk to their friends and family about their Internet business because "people hate being sold to" and will start to avoid you because they don't want to be INTERRUPTED by your sales pitch!

Instead, think about ways to build your business around PERMISSION marketing. Give people an incentive to let you have their email address or telephone number etc. and then start a dialogue with them that benefits them before it benefits you. Do that enough times and you will get yourself a customer who trusts you and is willing to return to you again and again.

These are all great tips.

I'm in the midst of designing a future business with Web site and all, and I've had a couple of questions come up as of late. I hope it's okay if I ask them here.

First of all, my desired domain_name.com is already taken and I will have to wait a year to see if the owner does not renew her registration. I was under the impression that owning all the variations of your domain name is key to beating out the competition (like having .net, .info, etc.). What do you all think about this? And has anyone had direct experience with this issue?

Secondly, I'm not exactly clear on how an online business is different is different from a traditional off-line one. For those of you already successful online, did you have to register for a business license still?

I think these are good tips. I'm at the creating content-richness stage. It's challenging to balance that out with what you actually sell. For instance, I'm finishing up a book and want to promote it on my site. At the same time I want the site to be worth reading and to keep a regular blog to keep visitors interested. But I don't want to give out information that makes it so that my book is not worth buying, because all the content is scattered elsewhere for free. This has been my biggest lesson so far, tracking what information goes where and in what form. I think that's key to a great business, being able to manage all that you have in a strategic way.
