Home Based Business Overnight

What is a home based business? How can you make an additional income on your spare time, how can you leverage on your network of friends, family, and co-workers. I was looking for a new business idea that would be easy to set up, and would spread all over the internal as a viral video.

The first step was put together a quick business plan, get a product, test a product (in this project a screen saver using footage of my own aquarium), once the final product was completed was time to start the marketing process.

First I had to build a website that would receive the potential customers; they would be redirected to the website, once the trial version of the screensaver would expire. I used my existing account at PayPal to install “Buy Now” button on the website.

From this point on, I started sending emails to all my friends, family and co-workers, asking then to forward my email with the link to the screen saver website. I was impressed with the instant traffic I was able to get from the chain of emails alone, and I was happy I was able to leverage on my network of contacts.

All I am missing to have this totally running on auto-pilot, is to automate the delivery of the program activation code, currently when a customer makes a payment at PayPal, I receive an email with the customer information and have to manually send the registration code to the customer.

I wanted to share this experience with all entrepreneurs out there who are thinking about the first step to start they own business. Believe and you can (and will) achieve it.
