As you can see there are numerous ways to market your home business. Start by checking out a few of these marketing strategies at a time and test their effectiveness. One very important aspect of home based business marketing is to track and monitor the results of each type. You want to be sure you are getting the best bang for your advertising dollars.

For each dollar you spend within these marketing strategies they must be recouped. Keep in mind how many sales will be needed in order to recoup the initial up front cost of your home based business marketing campaign. Then track sales to make sure that you are making the profit you expected.

I have found that when I started one of my companies I didn’t track how effective my marketing strategies were. I was selling a lot of products but it wasn't until my accountant had me look over a month of marketing costs did I see that I wasn't making the profit I expected. The advertising was costing me more then I was making in profit! I didn’t take the time to closely monitor this situation and I lost thousands of dollars by not checking the actual cost of my business advertising.

Bottom Line: Test and monitor your home based business marketing strategies. Track the sales of each marketing strategy and the costs associated with them. Be sure that you are making the profit you expect. If you are an internet business this article for internet marketing strategies will give you more ideas.
