Online Business Ideas For Women

Are you a woman who would like to stay at home and work, while taking care of your children? Then take a look at these two easy online business ideas for women. You can get started making money in no time.

Idea #1 – Make Money Shopping

If you’re shopping online, you already have an advantage you can use to make a living from. You only need the following ingredients:

a: An affiliate program (in a moment, you’ll know what that is).
b: A blog (and you’ll get instructions).
c: A bank account or an account with PayPal (it’s free to join).
d: Articles. You can write the articles yourself or pay others for doing it.

What Is An Affiliate Program?

If you’re not already familiar with the concept “affiliate program”, you’ll not get far online without learning about it.

Basically, it’s you sending potential customers to a product owner’s home page, and if the prospect makes a purchase, you’ll get paid.

You don’t have to take care of delivering the goods or take care of questions, service, etc.

A lot of people make a nice monthly income just by writing about the products they already bought themselves at stores who have an affiliate program.

When you get more experienced in writing product reviews, you can expand your business to contain products you don’t own yet. In that case, you should search for real consumer feedbacks and write like a journalist would do about the product.

How To Create A Free Blog

Let me be honest – the best is to have your own domain with a blog, hosted with a web host, but if you don’t know how to set it up technically, or if you just want something without charge, you can get started with a free blog. There are some good places to start such a blog on the internet.

Pick your product name as the title of your blog. It will be included in the URL as well, which is good, because it makes it easier for your blog post to be found.

Write articles about your product, and submit them to article directories. This is gratis, and you can get nice and targeted traffic from them.

Idea #2 – Make Money Writing About Your Hobby or Children

Now you know how to get a free blog and how to get traffic to it, just by writing and submitting articles. You can use this knowledge in another way than by selling products.

People use the Internet to find information about a lot of topics, including hobbies, children, pets, marriage, house cleaning, and more.

Pick one of the things you like to do, and write about it. Put all these posts up on your blog.

It’s possible to make a living with the income from writing articles alone. Imagine writing about what you already know and turn that into an income, while you can stay home and take care of your children. Wouldn’t that be nice?

There are plenty of other online business ideas for women – but these two are really easy to start with by acquiring the right knowledge in these areas. Find a very good source for the least expensive education and training materials.

Business Is Theater – How Entertaining Is Yours?

All business is theater. Recognize this truth and implement a way to deliver it. A very successful business man said this, adding: “To the degree you satisfy this aspect of your presentation, you will be very competitive and very profitable.”

Few small business owners think about their business in this context, and now must as the market has shrunk and the competition for the remaining discretionary spending is fierce. This requires paying close attention to successfully delivering the best presentation to the market that you can, gaining share and protecting what you have as profits are challenged by deep discounting and lower volume.

Here are a few examples of successful theater in a business scenario resulting in increased sales revenue, even in a down market:

1. A furniture store in Framingham, MA puts on a Disney World-caliber show with large props, moving lights, live theater, video, movie, music, pantomime, live presentation and interaction with the customers, creating a party atmosphere where children and families want to go. Yes, many will buy while there, more than if the entertainment was not provided. A competitor’s furniture store features a huge IMAX theater with state-of-the-art 3D movies shown on its huge screen. What’s next?

2. Many restaurants get this point and feature everything from stand-up comedy, table-side serenades, table-side cooking, live music and even, quite literally, theatrical productions. Of course, Hooters provides some of the best entertainment available–beautiful, scantily-clad women serving you beer! How can you compete with that?

3. A chocolate manufacturer with a strong brand name and distribution features Easter bunnies, Santa Claus, a Halloween haunted house, tours, tastings, and on Thursday evenings during the summer, old car rallies! Great crowd-pleasers, lots of fun and of course, sales revenues and profits greatly increase as the brand is tremendously enhanced.

4. Many manufacturers sponsor local demonstrations at stores on weekends with large circus-like events with hot dogs, etc. for children who will coerce their parents-who will shop-to bring them. Often these include radio personality appearances, athletes, celebrities, book signings, autographs, cooking lessons, lectures, trip raffles, tours… think about it. There are many forms entertainment and theater can take.

5. Office settings are rich with more subtle opportunities, such as ambiance created with comfortable furniture, rugs, fish tanks, music, art, plants, gratis refreshments, special lighting and generally treating visitors like kings or queens while visiting the place of business.

6. Many large sporting goods and outdoor gear stores, like L.L. Bean in Maine, have huge stuffed animal displays and other hunting and fishing scenes throughout their buildings, or simulated outdoor scenarios where you can test equipment. L.L. Bean even has a live trout pond in the middle of the store! It’s a great place to go just to see the stuffed animals and, of course, to buy a few things while you’re there. It works.

7. Even the Empire State Building, the tallest in Manhattan, has telescopes on the observation decks for tourists to view the city scape… pure entertainment.

The question is, how do you add theater, drama, entertainment to your business model? Anything can contribute to the theater, the entertainment value, if you understand the need and figure out how to deliver. Theater creates a competitive advantage, leading to greater revenue and higher profits, so figure out a way and deliver-it’s worth it.

5 Ways To Effectively Advertise A Top Christian Home Business Online

These days, Christians wishing to establish and market a faith-based business from home are especially fortunate. Consider the fact, for instance, that the Christian consumer market today is in excess of at least 8 billion dollars a year, and that about 1 out of every 3 Americans buy books at a Christian bookstore. Moreover, such purchases aren’t just confined to devotional fiction and nonfiction materials. People buy everything including music, home decor, accessories and clothing expressing the faith, gifts, as well using faith-related services. So, establishing and promoting a top Christian home businesses certainly within reach for those wishing to get involved. Here are at least 5 effective online marketing strategies which will help turn such a desire into reality.

Pay Attention to the Product or Service On Offer

Most web users, including Christians, tend to favor niche products and services, looking for information that’s not available at the local church or retail outlet. Again, this is where believers have a chance to capitalize on the expanding market involving faith-related goods like clothing and accessories, counseling services, and retreats. Of course, writing and selling relevant ebooks, and promoting video and audio materials on a website or blog are excellent means to reach into millions of homes across the globe.

Give Freely

Today’s major social networking sites that consistently draw millions of online users are built on giving away free tools, information, gifts, and gratis entry into competitions. Adopting such an attitude helps to establish one’s credibility and goodwill. In addition, and more importantly, it’s bound to generate a tremendous amount of traffic and business coming from search engines.

Use Multiple Marketing Strategies

Most profitable internet business promoters combine marketing strategies, using, for example, articles and audio/visual means to advertise a website and/or blog. Expertly written, fresh, short articles about various aspects of the faith, which include information about a product or service, are ideal as channels of information, and helping to answer relevant questions. Audio-visual promotional material also offers an immediate and personal avenue with which to stay in touch with consumers, providing content that’s popular and current.

Take Copywriting Seriously

When visitors arrive at a site’s homepage, the quality of the copywriting determines to a great extent whether someone is converted into a customer, or simply clicks elsewhere. In short, when the copywriting is poor, the conversion rate suffers. To be a top Christian home business necessitates employing skilled copywriters. These people’s expertise helps to distinguish one business from its competitors, and ultimately sells a service or product.

Take Customer Service Seriously

Even having all the search engine optimization know-how in place won’t be enough to turn visitors into active consumers, if the customer service is casual and neglectful. It’s vital to maintain a response time of 24 hours to enquiries from customers. One way to ensure that sales go out the window quickly is to take long in responding to the questions of visitors.

It’s important for any online business to integrate and streamline it’s marketing efforts with those taking place offline. Hence, ensure to display the website address at the physical business location, as well as on brochures, business cards, promotional materials, in newspaper ads, and in the yellow pages. Applying these 5 advertising strategies conscientiously will convince any believer that running a top Christian home business is not just possible, but can also be a source of fun and excitement.
