6) No Commute. Actually, you might have a commute – from your bedroom to your home office (which may even be in your bedroom!).

You can find thousands of low cost key words by using the this keyword selector tool and typing in high cost key words such as: “work at home”, “home business”, “internet marketing”, “extra income”, etc. Type those and other similar key words into the keyword selector tool and then look down the list for key word combinations with a “Count” in the left-hand column of 1000 or less (that # is just an estimate). The lower the “Count”, the fewer people who search those key words and the lower price you will pay per click in google AdWords. By paying lower prices per click, you’ll get more visitors and sales for each dollar you spend in advertising.
