Home Based Business Systems – Are You Throwing Money Down The Drain?

By Terrence Duff

Are some home based business services better and more effective than others? YES…and, in fact, some are not only not good but are just a complete waste of money.

Most people when they look for home based business services, end up spending their money for business card services, vehicle magnets and related things. So the very first thing I want you to do, is to stop throwing your money away by constantly putting your money into things which, from a long-term perspective, aren’t going to benefit you or your business.

Although these types of techniques can build a business, the process is painstakingly slow and full of constant rejection. Think about the numbers associated with utilizing these techniques and this type of home based business services.

Think about it with some numbers. You can only approach so many people a day when you are approaching people one at a time. So even if you really hustle, you are probably lucky to put 7-8 people a month into your downline. You will need to put an asterisk next to that number, though, because when you twist arms as a means to recruit people, you will have serious retention issues (and will be constantly playing “catch up” trying to replace the people dropping off).

That “dropping off” retention rate issue is the other side of using these home based business services about which you are rarely told by your upline or your company. Do you see why this will be a constant uphill battle for you?

You need to understand how to take advantage of much larger marketing platforms than these home based business services can create for you, so that you can expose your business to a much, MUCH larger pool of prospects. This is best done using the Internet.

You will need a couple things to make the Internet work for you effectively. The first thing is an effective squeeze page. An effective squeeze page is designed to get the lead – and that’s it. All that should be on that page apart from a place to gather prospects’ information is a headline and maybe a few bullets which position you as the expert who has a solution to an issue they’re having.

The second thing you will need to do is to drive targeted visitors (i.e., people who already have an interest in what you are offering) to that page. There are two home based business systems that will help you do this.

Pick up a GoDaddy or Hostgator account. Either one of these options will be fine, and the only fees you will be looking at incurring are ~$12.00 a year for the hosting package and ~$15.00 a month to host an unlimited number of websites. The other service that is really essential to get the process moving is an autoresponder. Good ones to check out are GetResponse and AWeber. Both run about $20.00 a month.

The takeaway from this should be that you need to stop spending your money on things that are not benefiting you and your business now and will not benefit you and your business over the long-term.
