Best Home Based Businesses: Fourth Soul Searching Step to Creating an Internet Home Based Business Step Four: Research Your Business Ideas

Are you ready to create one of the best home based businesses? What products or services could you sell on the internet to make a successful living while working at home?

This article is number four in a four-part series that is designed to assist you in creating your ideal internet home based business. To view Parts 1, 2, and 3 please do an Author search on Go Articles for Chrystal Chantel.

In the previous articles I asked to you to discover what you love to do, and identify the problems that people who also enjoy your activities experience. Then I asked you to brainstorm potential solutions to those problems, and assess your ideas: think of how you could turn your solutions into an information product or service that you could sell on the internet.

So let’s explore the final phase in this process: Research Your Business Ideas. In this phase you will research the feasibility of successfully selling your product or service over the internet. You will need to look at the following points:

*How much demand is there for your product or service?
*Are similar products already available on the internet?
*If yes, how much competition is there?
*What are their strengths and weaknesses of your competition?
*Could you sell your product at a competitive price and still make money?
*What will it cost you to turn your idea into reality?
*How long will it take you to develop your product or service?

Extensive research at this step is critical to the success of your business. Owners of the best home based businesses have thoroughly researched their idea before they launched their business. The more thorough research you do now, the more likely you will be successful when you actually start selling your product online.

Here are some useful internet tools I recommend that can assist you in this research. Keep in mind that when people search for information on the internet they usually type keywords or keyword phrases into search engines. For example, they may search for “Hawaii vacation package” or “model cars”. Start thinking of the keywords potential buyers may use to find your product. Research the demand and competition for your potential

internet home based business idea by using tools such as the following:

*Wordtracker Free Trial http://www.wordtracker.com/
*Overture: http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com/rc/srch/ Click on Visit the Resource Center, then click on Keyword Selector Tool.

These tools are great resources for discovering which search terms people are using and how much competition is already established on the internet. You will likely find people are searching with keywords that you had not yet thought of.

Wordtracker is a particularly valuable tool. In fact, I’d say it’s a goldmine. Check it out and you’ll see what I mean. Use the free trial to identify the keywords you are interested in. Then you may wish to purchase the service for a day or a week in order to do detailed research. This research will help you to come up with a long list of the very best keywords for your business idea.

Do your research thoroughly. Then begin to write a plan of how you could turn your ideas into your own unique internet products. I invite you to find out more on how to be successful with your online business by visiting Build Your Dream Business. I would love to help you turn your passions into one of the best home based businesses. Good luck!
