3 golden rules of hosting and internet marketing strategy as you work from home.
These decisions serve as the bedrock on which you build your web site, the funneling of traffic and how well and quickly you get indexed by the search engines. The quality of your hosting determines how easily you can grow your business and the reliability of your presence online.
Golden rule #1: Don’t put your eggs all in one basket. Hosting can be done with anybody, but make sure you know all your costs up front. A favorite tactic of many cheap hosting places is to nickel and dime you once you have set up shop. You don’t want to be three months into your site building only to find out that something you desperately need is either a very expensive add-on to your “cheap” site or not available at all.
Your internet marketing strategy should be one of growth, not just driving traffic to a sales page like cattle to the slaughter house.
Golden Rule #2: Whoever you host with, make sure they have plenty of good training tutorials to help you through the start up phase. Few things are more irritating when you work from home than fighting with software you don’t understand using information that is poorly written and incomplete.
Golden Rule #3: Set goals for yourself, but be kind. You will succeed if you keep at it. Goals and deadlines are great as you work from home and strive to achieve them on schedule, but allow for delays and the “fatigue factor”
You didn’t set up your hosting and internet marketing strategy to beat yourself up. The internet gives you access to the largest market that has ever existed. Take a little time to shop around, plan thoroughly and work diligently.
