There are a few questions that are worth asking yourself before you think about starting your own home business. If you don’t take the time to consider this, you may find that you end up doing something that you simply don’t enjoy and end up full of regret rather than excited about your business.

1) What would you enjoy doing each day, that could be profitable?
2) Will people pay for this service or the products you want to sell?
3) How much financial backing do you think you can get?
4) What resources can you gather to run a business?
5) How much time and effort can you put into a business without sacrificing other aspects of your life?

How to Make Money on Amazon Kindle

Making money on Amazon KindleToday I’m going to talk about how you can make money on Amazon Kindle. This is something I am relatively new to myself, but I’m about to publish my third book on Kindle. My first book has sold over 200 copies in the first two months, so I feel that writing a book for Kindle is something that is definitely worth considering as a way to build up a passive income or a way to add an additional income stream to your home business.

Here are a few reasons why I like publishing on Amazon Kindle and why I think you should consider it:

1) The Amazon site gets HUGE amounts of traffic. This means that your book will get seen pretty much straight away. Compare this to a website of your own, where it can take many weeks to start building up traffic.

2) Once you have written the book, it becomes a truly PASSIVE income stream. When I published my first book I spent a few hours doing some promotion, but since then I have done nothing to promote my book and thanks to Amazon I typically sell 2-4 copies per day.

Niche MarketingDiversity is one of the most important things when it comes to running an online business and at the moment my online income comes from over 40 different places. One of the things that I enjoy the most and find one of the most profitable is niche marketing.

If you are not familiar with the term “niche”, it is usually used to describe a subset of a market. For example the market of health can be split into smaller sub markets such as dieting, fitness, disease cure & prevention, alternative medicine and more.

Within each of these sub markets you have what is known as niches. Examples of niches in the alternative medicine market could be things like acupuncture, reflexology, kinesiology, hypnosis etc. In the fitness market you would have things like cardio training, weight lifting, pilates and so on.

You can even drill further down to get micro niches. The beauty of doing this is that your website becomes very specific and targeted. People are more likely to buy from you because you are providing exactly what they are looking for rather than just providing lots of very general high level information. Another great thing is that the competition in these niche markets is so much lower than it is in the more general markets.

What to Do if Someone Copies Your Website

what to do if someone copies your websiteI have to say, that one of my biggest pet peeves in internet marketing is when someone decides to copy my website. This has happened to me more than twenty times over the last 7 years for this website and is very annoying.

The more popular your website is, the more likely people are to copy it.

Sometimes it is completely innocent and is just a newbie who is trying to be successful and doesn’t realise that it is wrong. At other times it can be done by someone who should really know better. This post is part rant, but hopefully will be helpful too, as I’ve also listed some information about how to deal with this problem if it happens to you.

Here is why you should never copy any part of someone’s website without their permission:
