In that quest for the best home based business, what kind of criteria are you using to make your decision? Obviously you want to avoid the home business scams, but what else are you looking to avoid? You might be looking for a good home based business that doesn’t cost much to start or run. And there are plenty of those. For example, this cell phone business can be started for less than $100 and cost less than $50 per month to run (including website).
But low fixed costs like these are only part of the things you should look at. You should also look at other aspects of the business. The fixed costs are one thing, but what about marketing costs? I will go so far to say that it’s impossible to grow your home business without some marketing efforts. Marketing might include things like calling leads, running local ads, starting a website, or doing press releases. All of those activities will cost something; time, money or both.
These are the kinds of things that you must plan for. Looking for a home based business isn’t like shopping for bargains at the store. It should be something that you can be serious about. Above all, you should make sure it’s a business that is marketable and is something you will like doing.
