Demand is always an important part of any work at home self employment plan, without demand there is no business and here lies the reason that so many fail with their online business. Most will come up with what they think is a great business to start online but they have little to back it up, no matter how fantastic a idea may sound to an individual if there is no demand then the business fails. The way demand is looked at and researched for online businesses are through keywords, keywords show the searches that are being done for a business idea and those numbers are the demand that the business concept has.
Next comes the supply, because for any business demand is needed but if it is being met equally by supply then the profit is decreased. Supply is nothing more then the number of other sites which are based on the same business concept or theme. If a business idea is "punk music" and there are ten million other punk music sites and they are all using every punk music keyword then the supply is very high and much more difficult to turn into a profitable business.
