Starting a Home Business Online


Having a home business online is easier than ever before.  User-friendly software programs, designer templates and other tools have made it that way.  The tax credits alone make it worthwhile.


In the early days of the internet, setting up a website was something that only computer programmers could do.  The first webmasters were schooled in computer science and graphic arts.


Some of those early designers realized there would be a need for website-creation software as more and more businesses started to take advantage of the internet.  They worked for individual companies, designing their websites for them and many still do.  


They also created affordable do-it-yourself programs for businesses just starting out with low budgets.  The programs are often referred to as WYSIWYG; what you see is what you get.  The programs take what you type in and turn that into coding a computer can understand.   


Today, there are a number of different WYSIWYG programs.  They vary in quality and price.  It’s always a good idea to do a little comparative shopping or get some recommendations before you buy and download the software.


Most programs include designer templates.  Some of them are specifically geared towards having a home business online that specializes in selling products.  Others are geared towards the affiliate marketer.


Affiliate marketing is one of the popular ways to earn a living on the internet.  Many companies have an affiliate marketing program.  The set-up varies.  In general, you will receive a cut anytime someone uses your link to visit another company’s website. 


Some companies provide useful tools for tracking internet traffic and figuring click-thru rates.  Some of the better tools are available free from Google AdSense.  When you sign up for the Google AdSense program, the tools are yours to use.  The program can be used instead of an e-commerce home business online or to increase the earnings received from an e-commerce website.


E-commerce is simply a term used to describe internet businesses that operate electronically.   It’s like “e” mail.


The idea behind including Google ads on an e-commerce site is to try and reap every penny you can from each of your website visitors.  Attracting visitors to a website can be difficult.  It is smart to optimize your earnings in every way possible.


So, you have profits, commissions and payment for advertisements.  On top of all that, you have tax credits. 


Whenever you have a home business online, a portion of your home’s expenses can be deducted as a business expense.   As long as you have the time, there is no reason not to start one up.
