Day 3 - Figuring Out The Best Home Based Business Ideas
Here we go, this is where things start to get real and the basis of all your home based business ideas boil down to your final site concept. This is where we work towards building topics which have the highest profitability and probability of success. This is just like any other business concept as we are looking at the supply and demand of the keywords that you will be using for your sites content and topics.
The supply refers to the amount of other webmasters who are using the phrase and the demand refers to the amount of people searching for the topic. There are a couple ways to figure this out. Some create software which you must pay for and some use the older method for creating home based business ideas , which is this...
