12 Free Tools For Starting a Home Business With No Money


Want to start your own home business but short on cash? These proven and expert 12 free tools can help you make the move from corporate life to calling the shots.

By Bruce Scher

Home business ownership is the best way to start any business especially with no money. With no money to put up, and no money to lose, it's a risk free proposition. Your expenses are already fixed. There are no additional costs for rent, telephone, utilities, or a second computer.

"Starting with a website for only $12 per month is actually how a majority of home businesses do it," says Matt Williams. He should know. Williams and his partner recently sold their home business start-up LiveBid.com for millions to Amazon.com.

Regardless of your background, age or present situation, anyone can start a home business. Even if you have no credit, no business background, no experience, or no education, these proven 12 free tools can be used for jump starting your home business idea into reality.

Jay Reiss, mail order consultant, said "I started my home business 20 years ago, because I had no money to spend on office rent. Now, my ads are responsible for millions of dollars in sales. It's certainly possible if you try, even Apple Computer started as a home business."

Building up Your Home Business Website Traffic

One of the fantastic free tools your home business will have at it's finger tips is email. Allowing you to communicate with new visitors as well as repeat customers, at no cost. Nothing for postage, envelopes, paper or printing, a perfect price for a home business.

To build up your home business, you will need to capture the email addresses of visitors when they come to your home business site. You will need to offer them something in exchange for giving you their email address. Go to your home business competitor's websites and see what they offer new visitors.

Another important feature of email is using the signature tag line at the bottom of your outgoing emails to communicate your slogan or something unique about your home business. Think of this as another free marketing opportunity to tell potential customers about your home business.
