Are you looking for a Business you can Work at Home? Did you know that a Work at Home Business is the dream of millions of Americans, and millions more world wide? It is estimated that over 68% of us will have some kind of Home Business to help supplement our income. Plus, numerous surveys show that a Business of your own is still the #1 way for the average person to achieve financial freedom and independence.
According to Meg Whitman, CEO of eBay, 400,000 people are making a living from eBay. And, recently eBay reported $14.87 billion in annual merchandise sales with over 100 million members. With numbers like these shouldn't you be looking at eBay as your Home Based Business?
As outlined in my book "eBay Marketing Wholesale SourcePak" eBay has some staggering statistics. A Corvette is sold every 3 hours! A Diamond Ring is sold every 6 minutes! A Digital Camera is sold every 90 seconds! An Article of clothing is sold every 3 seconds! That eBay is the 4th most visited website on the Internet, and at the time of this writing has auction sites in 26 countries world wide. Pretty impressive for what started off as a small site in 1995 for collectors of Pez Dispensers.
Since then eBay has flourished into an auction site that lends itself perfectly to the Home Based Business. Why? Mainly because you can sell just about anything on eBay. Plus, operating an eBay Auction Business does not require you to have any extensive business knowledge or any elaborate computer skills. Finding items to sell on your auctions is easy as well. You can start by selling all of those unwanted items you have just lying around the house. From there some people cruise flea markets, swap meets, and second hand stores for more items to sell on eBay. And even more use Dropshippers. Using Dropshippers is a smart way to get your eBay Home Business up and running because you don't have to invest in costly inventory, store the inventory, or package and ship that inventory. Your Dropship supplier will do all of that for you. It doesn't get any easier then that!
So if you're looking for a Home Based Business, have a look at eBay. It is the largest and most exciting auction service on the Internet enabling trades on a local, national and international bases. With more than 3 million auctions running at any given time, and many millions of users, if you have something to sell you'll probably find a buyer for it on eBay.
Make sure that grandma has her glasses on and her foot on the accelerator this time.

How To Market Your Home
Business On A Shoestring Budget
by A. M. Wilmot
There are a number ways you
can go about marketing your Home Business website, many of which are quite
inexpensive. Effectively marketing your website is vital to your ultimate
success. In fact, the key to growing a business, and particularly a new Home
Business, is marketing. Once you have a domain name (which can be bought for
as little as $7 these reasonable one), you can get going on promoting your
business on the Net. This can be done for free in some cases if you are
willing to spend the extra time on the project. If you are unwilling to do
this, you can pay someone to optimize your site and promote it for you,
which is generally cost effective. It is possible, however to promote your
business online with no marketing budget. The key is to market it
aggressively, guerilla marketing style. This means using every free
marketing resource at your disposal, such as free classifieds, newsgroups,
search engine promotion, niche directories, free-for-alls, blogs, e-mail
signature lines, message and bulletin boards and free mailing opt-in lists
and ezines, to name just a few. Just don't spam, whatever you do. There are
many free resources throughout the web covering these free methods. You can
sign up for their free newsletters or look for their websites using your
favorite search engine. Speaking of search engines, most of the traffic on
the internet still comes from the free engines such as Google, despite a
recent influx of pay per click or pay per performance search engines such as
Overture. Offline methods includes distributing newsletters with your
product or service and contact number listed inside, trade shows, brochures,
flyers, stationary, advertising in either local or regional newspapers
and/or "free shoppers", and passing out audio cassettes about your product
or business to others who might be interested. The potential marketing
techniques are almost limitless and it may be best to look to your "starter
kit" or starter guide as it will probably go into great detail about which
offline marketing methods have been proven to work best in that particular
product or line of business. The bottom line is, action always beats
inaction, as you gain experience and create a synergy that push your Home
Business to your goals.

One of my favorite things about being an Internet Entrepreneur is that I can literally wake up in the morning with an idea for a new product and have it become a reality by the afternoon. Or I can find new ways to promote an existing product. Or I can join a new affiliate program or pursue a joint venture. Every time I repeat this process I create a new stream of income to add to my existing revenue base. Read more;
