Happy Home Business VI: Marketing Plan

If you have read all the other previous posts about Happy
Home Business, you will recall that I wrote about a
"Business Plan", closely realated
is the "Marketing Plan".

'Let me ask you a question. Do You Have Marketing Plan?'

Interesting question because my own 'Marketing Plan'
is something that I am still in the process of developing
and perfecting myself :)

Marketing is the real back bone of your business. Don't
you think that it is important enough to need a plan,
completely separate from your basic business plan? After
all with out a plan how will you know where you are going.
Let's go over the basic information that your
marketing plan should include....,

(you can read more by clicking on the 'Read More'
link here below.)




First you need a marketing strategy and a budget. It is
a good idea to get the basics of your marketing plan
written down, so that you can see exactly what you are
aiming for. Start the process by making lists.

List of all the advertising you plan to do. Include
websites, newspapers, radio, flyers, the yellow pages ect.

You can think about both 'Online Advertising'
and 'Off line Advertising',

For example recently I wrote what is called 'Fillers'
for (off line) print media. A Filler is a piece of tekst
used to fill a blank space in a publication. It can give
the readers short tit-bits of information. It can break
the lenghier articles. Fillers can give a publication
variety. I frequently get ideas for fillers when I have
a look at the photo's I have made with my digigal camera.
The Fillers usually are some remark or ideas revolving
around my own (royalty free) photo's.

For each form of advertising you should assign an
estimated cost. Determine how many customers you expect
to reach. This will allow you to work out your cost of
per customer, which is how much of you budget you
need to spend on advertising to bring in one customer.

Next make a list all of the pricing policies you plan
to have, as well as any special offers that you think will
be good. Don't worry you can make price changes and
new offers later, The idea here is to have some
basic long term plans.

Another good idea is to have a list of other businesses
in your area that could be considered to be competitors.
You need to know who you are up against and a good plan
to differentiate yourself from them.

This is just a basic outline for starting your
businesses plan. Remember, when in doubt seek out help.
Do a quick search for sample marketing plans online
or visit your local library for more information.

An online business don’t need enough money to get started,
it simply require a PC to work from home, an internet
connection, a website and a proper step by step guideline
for starting your online business. You can start
your business with zero or very little investment.

Unlike 9 to 5 day jobs there is no time bound restriction;
you can work from any time and up to any time it’s totally
depend on you that how much time you want to devote for
some time for your business but when it has been established
you can work as little as you like.

You can work from comfort of your home; you don’t have
to travel some where else to start your work. Where you
put your computer is where you were working. You can
simultaneously run more than one online business.
Once your existing online business is automated,
you can spend your free time in improving existing
business or spend your time to start another
online business to generate more revenue.

But to achieve all the above mentioned which are only
few to write, you need to put your dream into action,
without action you can’t even think of getting enough
from your online business. Your dreams can only be achieved
with careful planning. As an entrepreneur, you will need
a plan to avoid pitfalls, to achieve your goals and
to build a profitable business.

Home based business opportunities are only as good as
your commitment. Learn the rules before you embark on
one of many home based business opportunities offered
online. Remember one thing that “You cannot be an expert
without the skills to pull it off and you'll only
make money when you understand how business
people become millionaires!”

A Music Business Inside Story

You probably have seen some of the Christmas Music presented
in the 'Video-Splash-Widged' you can find beneath
the 'Movie Trailers Video Widget' There you can find
a special selection of Great Atrists with
their Christmas CD's.

An other great artist that I want to talk about is
Trijntje Oosterhuis, some time ago
she performed at the 'Goois Jazz Festival!',
there she was the 'Mystery Guest'. (Somehow I must
have been enough 'Insider' to know that she would
be the 'Mystery Guest' that evening.) O.K.
now about the (Getting) Inside Story..,

Because I promised to listen to somebody performing in
one of the bands at the Jazz Festival, (In several
areas of the building, several bands where playing at
te same time)
I somehow almost managed to miss
the performance of Trijntje Oosterhuis!

The doors of the hall where already closed and nobody
could get in anymore. Fortunately there also was a side
door near the stage and maybe also because I was there
with a Musician we could get in that way probably as
being seen as one of the 'Music Guy's', having the best
spots possible, practically on stage ourselves! At the
same spot as Willem Duys, Known from Dutch Radio & TV
and known for being a big fan of 'Toots Thielemans'
the Musician that Trijntje performed with.

Trijntje is about to release a new CD with
Burt Bacharach Songs, in the Video here below you can find
a song with a Christmas thought titled: "That's
what Friends are For".

Tell a friend:






Here below you can find one of Trijntjes recent CD's

and the other CD on the Right titled: 'Who'll Speak for Love' has a song from Burt Bacherach especially written for Trijntje Oosterhuis!!

It will be released 25 December 2007.

Happy Home Business V : 'Proto-typing'

Try It Out First

If you’re starting a home business. Before you go any further and start investing your time and cash it's a good idea to test things out on a small scale.

Here are some things you can do,

(to read more you can click on the 'Read More'-link here below the 'Ridiculous Income Goals' Banner.)

Ridiculous Incomes! Click Here to Watch the Video!








No matter weather you plan to sell physical things, or your starting a website build a prototype. A prototype is a small version of your product that you build quickly to prove your idea is feasible. Show your prototype to a few people to see what they think. If you get a good response then you know you have a winner.

If you are providing a product or service why not test it out on a few customers. Give them a free try or a big discount to make sure that everything runs smoothly and the customers are satisfied and happy with your product.

Currently my little eBook titled:
"A VISION for a Happy, Healthy & Rich LifeStyle"
is selling for the ridiculously low price of only $2,50
(You can find it at the left side on this blog)
So if you want to take advantage of this 'Beta testing',
here is your chance to get it while the price is
still at this low price. And it's also your chance
to give me your feedback and let me know what YOU think.


An other important step is to do some kind of survey to find out exactly what your customer thinks of your product or service. You could hand it to the customer, include it with your product, or call them up and say that you are just calling to make sure everything is went well.

You can also offer for example a FREE Report to make it even more attractive for your customer to participate in the survey....,

Talking about 'Survey' I also have - for example - a little survey where your can tell me what you think about the site 'HP's Happy Blogspot', you can take a look at this survey by just clicking on the tekst here below:

  • Your opinion is important, Just take a little Survey and get an interesting 'Happy Lifestyle' FREE Report Just CLICK HERE (on the tekst you are reading right now) to tell us what you think
    about HP's Happy Blogspot by Simply answering 5 Easy Questions, Thanks in advance.



  • So what ever you are planning remember it's a good idea to test it out on a small scale before you hit the big time. Trying it out gives you the opportunity to build confidence in yourself and your business without making big costly mistakes.

    As you might have read in 'Happy Home Business (part I)',

    Alicia Keys

    While sitting with the sun comming in through the window with my little Notebook computer writing, hitting the 'Key's' on my 'Keyboard' I saw a video clip with Alicia Keys behind the 'Key's', In the video clip I saw images of some sort of 'Clockwork' like 'Mechanics' wondering if I could make the 'Mechanics' of HP's Happy Blogspot work better by offering her CD's on this blog.

    So I wondered if my affiliate Amazon offers her albums and yes they do so here below you can find a few of her albums. (and I finally figured out how I can put them - as the Key's on a piano - side by side in column's)
