Digital Strategies

You Fill a Need for Others

We here at Home Business Digital work hard to provide you with useful insights and resources. For example, in a recent blog article posted on January 12, 2021, there was an article featured that looked at a strategy to finding out ideas for creating products that fill a need of your audience:

Realize Your Dreams

“It is always about going back to the core idea of your business which is to solve a problem that your audience has. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by thinking about your own business challenges and get crystal clear on what your obstacles are. Next you come up with an innovative idea to move the challenges aside and let you begin to realize your dream.”

Your Ecommerce Activity

We get asked sometimes what is the best home business to start? The answer to this of course is the recommendation that it be in an industry for which you already have knowledge or the passion for and therefore the motivation to learn. But these days that is just the beginning. Sure, if you already have a storefront and are a mom-and-pop business, you can just sell your items online.

Digital Transformation

But, for some home businesses this is not easy to do, especially if you provide a service that must be done in-person with the customer or client. You might consider selling a variation drawn from your own industry that can be ordered online and then sent to the buyer.

Getting Help from a Fulfillment Company

But wonder if you do not want to have to deal with the hassle of taking orders and then packing and sending items? An alternative would be to find a business that will do the fulfillment for you. This means they will ship your items to your customers. In some cases, you will supply the fulfillment company with an inventory of your products and then as orders come in, you notify them, and they will send them out for you.

Print on Demand

There is yet another way you can work with a fulfillment business. If you sell things like t-shirts or hard copy books that you wrote, there are businesses that will not only send out your orders for you, but will custom create the items for you. In other words, they will do the printing on demand of your books, or t-shirts etc.

Digital Goods

But probably one of the easiest businesses to run online (once set up) is one that specializes in digital goods. Digital goods include things like eBooks, software, and videos. All these things just need to be made as digital files first. Then when your customer puts in an order on your website, they are instantly and automatically taken to an area where they can then download your digital product.

Benefits of Digital

The exciting thing about this is that once you have created your digital product as a file, it can be downloaded as many times as you want. This does away with the challenges required for sending out physical goods inventory. The digital goods strategy works best with “How To” nonfiction topics that have information regarding solutions to problems that your customers really need right away.

Freelancer Digital Fulfillment Team

You can also sell digital services online that when the orders come in you can then delegate the actual work to freelance online workers. This works for things like customized app creation and websites etc. You do a little interaction with the customer via email or video chat. If needed they can email or send your things like images and logos, that you then present to your freelancer digital fulfillment team worked with remotely.

Digital You Need for Your Home Business

Digital Tools are the Key to Your Success

You may think you know all the digital tools you need including a website and social media. These tools are just the tip of the iceberg of what is possible. Tools can also include things like free generator tools where you go online and do things like create a logo or create a book cover or even create a business idea. Finding these and other digital resources is as easy as doing a keyword search with your favorite search engine.

Realize Your Dream

It is always about going back to the core idea of your business which is to solve a problem that your audience has. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by thinking about your own business challenges and get crystal clear on what your obstacles are. Next you come up up with an innovative idea to move the challenges aside and let you begin to realize your dream.

Test Your Business Idea

Before you sink any of your money into a new business idea, test it first. One way you can do this is to go to a question board on which users ask questions regarding businesses they want to launch or have already launched and need help making them happen. If you register as an expert for such a site, you can then begin to help folks online with their business issues. Once you find out a question that gets asked again and again, chance are you have found the key to solving a problem many members of your audience has. Now you can start using digital tools to start your digital home business!

John Yianni Stamas Interview About the Importance of Digital Technologies

John Yianni Stamas of USA Make a Difference talks about the role that a positive outlook of hope combined with digital is the recipe for success for America.

HOME BUSINESS DIGITAL

What is your connection to USA Make a Difference and how are you using “digital” to work toward empowering our country?

JYS

Sometimes in science fiction movies, technology is portrayed as an evil force overtaking us as human beings as the lines blurr. I’m not saying that this eventually could not happen, but for the moment digital is our friend. You know that being that you are from Home Business Digital.

HOME BUSINESS DIGITAL

How is digital our friend?

JYS

Digital is just a tool, and like any tool, the tool can’t build the house. You need to gain the knowledge about using these tools. Sites like your can help disseminate information on how to empower your career, small business, startups or solopreneur venture with the conscious use of digital.

HOME BUSINESS DIGITAL

You seem to be involved with many organizations throughout the internet. Can you tell us more about that?

JYS
Yeah, I have a lot of interests so I find myself involved with many different organizations such as yours. This desire to create using many different tools can be a blessing or a curse. A curse when I over extend myself, but a blessing when the tools come together for a result.

What Now with the City?

A City with Kinks

People outside of “The City” ask me what is going on with New York. Mostly folks seem interested in whether or not Manhattan is on its way back to normal? The answer I usually give is that it is still the greatest city in the world but it definitely has some kinks.

Danger Danger

For example, I have a doctor’s appointment coming up but have to very carefully what means I should take to get there. What is the least dangerous? Taking a car service doesn’t make sense because it is al long drive and expensive. What about the subway? You have to be careful with stations. Some are dangerous.

Uber Changed New York

Then how about the bus? The regular bus, forget it. Aside from the fact it will take a very long time, buses are overcrowded, even in the Pandemic, and you can run into some surly characters spot you and follow you out of the bus. Then there is the express bus. It goes faster with fewer stops but is more expensive. You can still find yourselves in the cross hair of a person up to no good. You might notice I didn’t list cab. This is because they are few and far between these days. Uber and others have caused that.

A Solution Outside of the Box

So what then? I am going to find out if I can meet with the doctor remotely. Makes sense, right? This is after all Home Business DIGITAL!
