SBI withdraws teaser home loans and car loans - Finance - Loans

Barely a fortnight after Pratip Chaudhuri took charge as the chairman, State Bank of India (SBI) has decided to withdraw one of the most controversial, yet popular, products in the Indian banking sector in recent times.

Introduced by Chaudhuris predecessor, O P Bhatt, in early 2009, the teaser loan scheme will be withdrawn from May 1. The scheme charges a lower rate in the initial years. Teaser loans account for a third of SBIs home loan portfolio.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has been against such schemes as it fears higher defaults after the rates go up in later years.

The new management said even if a bank thinks a product is good, the regulator has the final word. One cannot be in a state of perpetual conflict with the regulator, Chaudhuri said.

In the new home loan scheme, the interest rate on loans up to Rs 30 lakh will be 9.5 per cent, while for loans between Rs 30 lakh and Rs 70 lakh the rate will be 9.75 per cent. The rate for home loans above Rs 75 lakh will be 10.25 per cent.

For car loans, the rate will be 10.75 per cent. The maximum tenure has been kept at seven years. Both housing and auto loan rates have been linked with the banks base rate, making them floating.

Though the effective rate will rise, SBI has offered a sweetener by waiving the pre-payment penalty.

Theres a feeling among customers that the pre-payment penalty is a hidden charge. We think if the customer is getting a better deal from other banks, we dont deserve to be there, Chaudhuri said.

To discourage banks, RBI had increased the provisioning requirement on teaser loans by five times to 2 per cent.

SBI is now in talks with RBI for a waiver. The regulator says we have to first withdraw the scheme, he said.

If RBI insists on higher provisioning, the bank has to do it in the fourth quarter itself. The additional provisioning of Rs 537 crore is nearly one-third of SBIs net profit in the fourth quarter of 2010-11. SBI has disbursed Rs 36,788 crore under the scheme to 400,000-500,000 borrowers.

The additional provisioning can be written back once rates are set higher, that is, after three years, Chaudhuri says.

Despite the withdrawal of the popular product, the management thinks the demand for home loans will continue and 20 per cent growth in the segment is achievable.

ICICI and HDFC are our principal competitors. Our pricing is quite competitive. Growth in this segment should not be affected, Chaudhuri said.

Asked if SBI was seeing delinquencies on home loans, Chaudhuri said the slippages were not there as of now. He added it was too early to say if non-performing assets would rise as the portfolio was yet to be seasoned.

User Review

Wow! This site rocks. I've been surfing the net trying to find information on an upcoming adventure I'm thinking about embarking on when I came across Sexmaps.net. Now, you don't know me and probably never will, but I've got to tell as many as I can about this place. First let me say a bit more about myself. I'm what you'd call a young professional. I'm 28 and work for a large company here in the States. I make pretty good money and I'm single with no attachments to any specific woman. Another thing I do have is a very healthy sex drive. I try to keep up with the latest trends and in doing so I heard several people at the local bar talking about sex vacations. Hmmm, a sex vacation. What a concept. This certainly peaked my interest.

I began surfing the net by trying to find information on the topic of sex vacations. When I Google the subject I came across lots of sites. But I was really turned off by most of them. The sites I found were either only for swingers, not my bag, or were poorly done. During my travels on the net I came across sexmaps.net. Boy was it just what I was looking for. A site that not only allowed me to pick a location anywhere in the world, but it also let me find what interested me by category. Whether you are looking for a bit of fun and want to find something locally, or if you want to travel to an exotic location in search of some naughty fun. Sexmaps.net is your resource!

Now I've always wanted to go to one of those exotic places we all hear about. A place where the sun never seems to set and the women a free and easy. A place like Rio. All I needed to do was go to sexmaps.net and there was everything I needed to explore my trip. The home page has a built in search engine where I entered Rio de Janeiro in the Search by Location box and the type of sex business I was looking for in the Search by Business box and away I went.

This very cool site offers almost every type of sex business imaginable. For example you can search under such activities as sex clubs, TV clubs, BDSM clubs, strip clubs, massages, fetishes, male and female escort services for both men and women to name just a few. In fact there were business that I didn't even know existed. One of the really neat things is that this site caters to specific communities such as the gay and lesbian, bi, straight, fetish, and other interests. And these are legitimate businesses, not some seedy fly-by-night rip-off joint.

The forum area was a hot. I hooked up with a couple of people who had the same sexual interest as me and was able to learn a whole lot more about places listed on the site. The reviews were helpful as well. Here I could get the lowdown, good and bad, on sexual services before I spent my hard earned cash.

Another really neat feature is the maps and the links to sex businesses. You can go anywhere in the world using the map system Sexmaps.net has. Or if you're like me I wanted to read about what services were offered under Strip Clubs (my fantasy). I entered Rio in the location box and Sex Clubs in the business box and presto, I was given information about all the sex clubs in Rio that were listed on the site. And the description for some of them made for really good reading. In addition, the good folks at Sexmaps.net added in links to many of the businesses.

I found the user reviews to be especially helpful and fun to read. Users are invited to add their own review of a business for others to see. It's really cool to read about real experiences written by real people. I'm sure to use a business that has a positive user review rather than depend on some paid slick writers "positive" report. Another nice feature is found under the tab marked Top Reviewers. Here you will find the best of the best reviews. I know that after reading the reviews I found this or that person written review to really stand out. The Top Reviewers tab lets me see all the reviews written by my favorite reviewer.

One of my favorite features, other than some very interesting videos and pictures (always a good thing) was something called Your Black Book. Once I became a member I could store all the information about places that tweaked my interest in one place so I could come back to them.

As I just mentioned in order to really get the most from the site you should become a member. Basic membership doesn't cost a thing. For those of us who take our sex seriously, Sexmaps.net does offer a premium membership. Premium membership brings you added stuff like raw, real video footage of sex workers in action, user generated content, amateur videos that people have filmed in their travels around the world sampling beautiful ladies, including prostitutes and related legal sex workers. After seeing what the premium offers you can be sure that's what I'm going to hook up with.

Did I leave anything out? In fact I did. When you visit the Sexmaps.net home page be sure to check out the right side of the page. There you'll find several interesting sponsored links. Just below those links is a nice idea: a featured business.

Sexmaps.net is as easy to use as any site I've found. A simple interface, clearly marked links and tabs, and an informative How it Works tab. Very intuitive. Because Sexmaps.net is continually being updated with new content, it's the kind of site that you keep going back to. Check it out, I think you'll be as surprised and pleased as I was.

Home Garden - Six Amazing Tips To Create A Beautiful Home Garden!

"Wow, what a beautiful garden!" How often have you expressed this view after observing the wonderful vista in front of you? Do you long to create the same magic in your own home garden so that you become the envy of your friends and neighbors? Well, here's how:

(1) The basic mistake made by self-gardeners is not finding out correct details about the plants they purchase for their home garden. By this, I do not mean going into the botanical details about each and every shrub or tree! What I mean is inquiring about their growing habits. How tall will they be when fully grown? How far can the roots spread?

(2) People with large home gardens tend to forget that plants are also living things and grow up into tall shrubs and trees! Without a thought, they tend to put trees too close to the house or plant shrubs just under the windows. Can you imagine what will follow?

(3) Like growing children, these small shrubs and trees also grow year by year. Being too close to the house and having no place to spread, the roots of large trees may damage water as well as sewage lines by penetrating the foundation of the house. Your gardening expenses therefore go up, what with having paid for the plants themselves plus having to spend on costly repairs. The ultimate disaster is when you have to cut down the entire tree, despite having had it for so many years!
It is the same story with shrubs. Though their roots cannot destroy foundations, still the plants grow tall enough to prevent sunlight from entering the windows. You yourself will not be able to view your garden from within the house!!

(4) Timing is equally important. Yes, there is a proper season for planting young shrubs and trees in your home garden - it is late fall, when the roots are able to grow strong and healthy. Summer is a definite no-no where planting of new trees is concerned!

(5) "God, I am dying of thirst!" Well, shrubs and trees are also living things which require a certain quantity of water daily for their survival. They should not be under-watered nor over-watered, especially when young. In fact, a garden which has received more than sufficient water in the spring and summer, thrives during freezing winters too; much better than plants which have received less water.

(6) Do you trim your nails when they grow too long? What about hair and beard? They also undergo regular trimming to give a neat appearance. Well, plants also tend to grow wildly unless kept under control. Fall is the season for pruning vines and shrubs. This not only ensures proper growth, but also makes sure that there is good airflow. The result is better-looking plants in springtime.

The tips mentioned above may give the feeling that it is all too much work for one person alone! I agree. Creating a home garden is indeed tough work! But remember, working with your hands goes a long way in ridding you of everyday stresses and burdens. Even therapists agree that it is a wonderful way to do both, relax as well as exercise. No more daily trips to the gym! And what a great sense of achievement at the end of it all!

For the increasing number of Americans utilizing "home gardens" as a pastime and hobby today, the visual treat produced is more than enough reward for all their efforts!

Organic Home Gardening - Getting Started with the Basics

Have you ever thought about gardening organically at home, but weren't sure where to start?

Many gardeners would love to garden without all the chemicals and sprays, but worry that organic home gardening is difficult and time consuming. Not so! It can be a straightforward and easy way to garden. And it's also cheaper as you no longer have all those chemicals and sprays to buy.

In this article we'll look at the basics of organic gardening - they keys to getting a good foundation so your plants have the best possible chance of success. We'll look at how to prepare your soil, and see how easy it actually is to understand and improve your soil from the outset. We'll also have a quick look at the bugs in your garden, and how you can protect your plants from the bad ones, and encourage the good ones.

Organic gardening may require a little more time and understanding from you as a gardener, however the rewards and satisfaction are huge. Read on to find out the basics you need to know.

The main things to know about organic gardening:

Soil:
Your soil is the lifeblood of your plants, and time spent now (boring as it is!) will really help you later. Firstly, you need to understand what type of soil you have. Most soils fall along a continuum from sandy to clay, and all can be improved by digging in rich organic matter. It also helps to know the acidity of your soil and the easiest way to find out is using a pH testing kit from your local garden center. These are very simply to use and will let you know if your soil is acid, alkaline, or just right. Ideally you want your soil to be just slightly acid - between 6.0 and 7.0 pH is ideal - and there are a number of organic ways we can achieve this. If you need to improve the pH of your soil then your garden center is your best place to start, as they will understand the soil types in your region.

Once you start gardening then feeding your soil twice a year with organic fertilizers and compost will help keep your soil in great condition.

Plants:
If growing from seed then you can find a huge range of organic seeds available these days. It's also best to try to find plants that are naturally disease resistant - they will often say so on the packet. Heritage seeds can be ideal, and also provide another point of interest in your garden. If you're growing vegetables, then only plant vegetables that you will eat! This will help to keep you interested in your garden and reduce waste.

Finally, work out a crop rotation plan to help maintain the health of your soil. A 4 year rotation plan is ideal.

Pest Control:
Pests are a constant menace in the garden and tend to worry organic gardeners in particular. However there are a range of pest control methods available. These can include companion planting, manually removing the bugs - either from the plant or the planet, depending on how annoyed you are with them - and there are also a range of homemade organic sprays and teas which can be very effective. A simple spray of dishwashing detergent (only a few drops), water and neem oil is great for aphids, whitefly and other pests.

But remember that your garden needs the good insects such as ladybugs and hoverflies, so be careful when you spray.

Fertilizers and soil conditioning:
Homemade fertilizers and compost are a great way to feed your soil and also reduce your household waste - all your green waste can go into your compost bin and worm farm. Generally, depending on your climate, homemade compost will be ready to use after 3 to 4 months. It will smell sweet and be crumbly in your hand.

Fertilizers can also be animal-based if you have a local friendly farmer with a ready supply of the main ingredient, however if you are using animal manure make sure it is completely rotted and decomposed before you add to your garden.

Equipment:
The only other equipment you may want to consider when gardening organically is a compost bin or worm farm. You can buy these from your garden centre or make one yourself. Just ensure that your bins are easy to reach from the house on a clean path, otherwise you are less likely to add your green waste.

And now you're ready to plant! I wish you happy, healthy and successful gardening.

Organic Home Gardening – The Sit Back and Relax Technique for Growing Organic Vegetables at Home

The organic home gardening technique that I've been using in recent months has been amazing. In fact, my garden can now grow organic vegetables more efficiently than ever before.

You know, I can sit back and relax for weeks or months and my garden still produces food in a very prolific way.

So how is this possible?

Okay, this is made possible through the use an ecological micro-eco system gardening technique known simply as ecological gardening.

I absolutely enjoy this form of organic home gardening because it's almost hands-free in terms of care and maintenance.

Simply put, if you adopt the ecological gardening technique, you can just sit back, relax and your organic garden will still be able to yield lots of fresh, healthy, tasty and juicy organic vegetables including pumpkins, tomatoes, carrots, lettuce and more.

Note: Full details and images regarding this method can b e viewed thru this blue underlined link.

As long as you apply the ecological gardening principles in the correct fashion, your garden will continue to produce high amount of organic foods with very little interference on your part.
So what is ecological gardening?

Well, it's basically a technique that enables your vegetable garden to behave exactly the same way as a natural habitat.

So why do we want our organic home garden to mimic natural habitat?

Okay, I want you to imagine a large rainforest tree falling to the ground after years of standing tall. Now imagine the empty niche space left by the tree.

It's a very large niche space. So will weeds spring out of this empty niche space? The answer is no. Instead hundreds, perhaps thousands of inactive seeds that were lying in the soil will spring to life.

They fill the niche space that was previously occupied by the fallen rainforest tree. Harmony is reestablished once the niche space is filled.

Now the same effect can be achieved for organic home gardening. This means that you can have a vegetable garden that doesn't require weeding, no pesticides application, no digging, no resting beds, no crop rotation etc.

So how do we set up a vegetable garden that follows the ecological gardening rules?

You can start by using a planting system that mimics a natural ecosystem. Basically, you plant a variety of edible plants in a very compact way - leave no empty niche space!

This kind of planting system also produces an array of highly protected micro-climates. So your plants will last much longer because of this.

Come hot spell, your green won't simply bolt to seed while those cold sensitive plants get much more protection.

And that's not all

This planting system also makes for a solid and natural form of pest management therefore the use of pesticides is completely unnecessary.

By the way, if you're interested in using ecological organic home gardening method to grow more vegetables with minimal work, just watch the complete video tutorials on how to set it up.

The download details for step-by-step video series can be found at http://www.growingorganicfood.info

Don't forget to print out the detailed manual and project plan that comes together with the videos. You should use them for quick reference.

Top 3 Tips For Ensuring Proper Drainage Of Your Yard

During the rainy season, many homeowners go down to their basement, only to discover that there is flooding. In fact, approximately 60% of homeowners deal with some kind of drainage problem in their yard. In order to prevent your basement from flooding and divert water away from your home, it's essential to ensure proper yard drainage. Fortunately, most yards can be drained effectively, and it's rare for water problems in a yard to be unsolvable. Here are the top 3 tips for achieving better yard drainage.

1. Make sure that the soil in your yard slopes away from your home, and identify the cause of the flooding. For example, you may find that there is a depression in the yard that causes the water to pool or that excess water from the roof is draining near the foundation of your home. Make sure that any gutters you install are properly installed and drain water away from the foundation of the home. All water should drain at a spot that is lower than your home.

2. Construct drain tile pipes in the ground to gather water during rainstorms. Drainpipes carry water away from the home and ideally discharge it near a sewer or retention pond. The drainpipes may have to cross under your driveway or a sidewalk. Map out a plan consisting of the underground channel where the drainpipe will go. Once you determine where the drainpipe will go, dig out a trench that's about a foot deep and lay down an inch or so of gravel before placing the drainpipe in the trench. The drainpipe should then be covered with gravel as well as a few inches of dirt and sod. It is important to first cover the drainpipe with gravel to prevent its holes from clogging.

3. Consider switching from natural grass to artificial turf. Artificial turf is designed so that water passes through its base, meaning that flooding is rarely a problem. However, if your yard is not relatively flat, some landscaping may be required before you lay down artificial turf. If you are dealing with yard drainage problems and there are muddy areas in your lawn, switching to artificial turf can be very beneficial because of its excellent drainage properties. If you decide to install artificial turf in your backyard, a specialist can examine your yard and determine an appropriate layout. Typically, artificial turf with sand and rubber infill is used in backyards because liquids drain right through it.

Preventing Water Damage

Most often no one thinks about the frustrations of water damage until it is too late. From unexpected weather to faulty plumbing it is nearly impossible to predict when disaster will strike. Damages from even small amounts of water can prove to bevery costly for homes and businesses. Take action now to prevent water damage before problems arise in the future. Prevention can take little time and save you upto hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

Steps to Water Damage Prevention

Check Pipes & Plumbing

Major damages can be avoided by simple checks on pipes and plumbing. What may appear to be small insignificant cracks or fractures in pipes can lead to major problems later on. Be proactive and prevent these unseen annoyances in your life by having someone exam your pipes and plumbing today.

Changes in Temperature

Changes in temperature can often result in destruction of pipes. Freezing water expands, increasing the size of small cracks, eventually pushing them apart until they are big enough for water to leak through and flood your home. Prevent this by having all unnecessary outdoor water pipes shut off before winter arrives. Before spring it is also important to have your pipes checked by a professional in order tocatch damaged pipes before they lead to more costly problems.

Damaged & Hazardous Walls

Faulty walls can often let water seep into your home during periods of high rainfall. Many homes old and new have cracks that can let water in basement flooding ground floors and basements. Flooding can result from cracks in walls as well as insignificant insulation within the walls. Professionals can come out and check the foundation of your home as well as your insulation to make sure that you do not get caught up in a flood when rain comes.

Insignificant Roofing

Water damage doesn't always come from below, often leaks can come from faulty roofing. If roofing is not put on properly or is old, leaks can often create annoying streams of water coming down from your ceiling. Have your roof checked for weaknesses before you have water invade your home. If you already have a small drip in your ceiling this is often the first sign of more significant leaks to come in thefuture. Be sure to take care of these problems before small drips turn into waterfalls pouring into your home.

Home Based Agents or Call Center For B2B Telemarketing Service

Lets take every characteristic of b2b lead generation services and do a side by side comparison between a call center and home based agents:

Technical

In terms of technology, call centers are able to create internet and power redundancy to prevent down time. In medium to large size call centers there is onsite IT personal to assist with timely resolution of all issues. Considering economies of scale, call centers can also purchase better software and have onsite hardware replacement to create efficiency.

Meanwhile, Home based agents will go experience down time for any of the above mentioned issues. As for Idea2Result services, clients are not responsible for payment for any hours agents have experienced down time. Technical issues are inevitable such as internet, power and desktop failures but expect only five to fifteen percent total in campaign time. Most outbound campaigns can accommodate down time, since there is no reliance on the agent. For inbound campaigns, we are able to create back up network between agents to ensure every call is answered.

Note: Continued improvements in technology are certainly shrinking the gap between call centers and telemarketing service. With hosted dialers, Voice Over IP (VoIP) calling and great improvements in hardware and software of personal computers, home based agents are narrowing the gap in technology.

Management

Call centers are clear and distinct organization with training and onsite management. With medium to large size call centers, there are layers of management from team lead to quality managers and of course relationship managers. The benefit of such structure is the ability to deliver consistent service across numbers of clients and large campaigns.

Home based agents in a telemarketing service offer a direct resource to the client. Motivation and communication happens directly and offers unprecedented flexibility. Home based model is not for inexperienced, in fact, 3 years is the absolute minimum mark. Idea2Result seeks agents with 5-8 years experience, trained and tested by US Fortune 500 call centers. Ownership of the work, direct accountability to the client are huge benefits of the home based environment.

Note: Call center management creates value but also demands additional costs. When working with agent directly, clients are able to pay more to have elite agents fully motivated to stay with the campaign long-term.

Clearly for a large airline or a major corporate to switch to home based agent model would be an undertaking. However, with 10 agent campaigns or less, clients are now able to receive most bang for the buck and build direct relationships with agents, KEY TO SUCCESS!

Health Problems That Mold Causes

With the intention of helping people remove mold from their homes, Bill Tyrrell founded his mold remediation company, Triage BioClean Services. Over the years, Tyrrell became one of the foremost experts of mold remediation in his area. Here, he sets the record straight on the health effects of mold contamination.

It is true that molds are everywhere. As a member of the same family as mushrooms and yeasts, molds have been citizens of our world for literally thousands of years. Like most living organisms, molds need moisture to live and reproduce. That's why you're likely to find mold in areas with leaks or high humidity. Molds are highly beneficial to humans. Penicillin is made from mold and was a breakthrough drug when discovered. And while mold can certainly be great, it can also be horrific, especially when it's in your house.

Potential Issues of Being Exposed to Mold

Mold can have a number of harmful health effects, including allergic reactions, irritation, and in rare cases, infection. On the other hand, people with allergies, asthma, weak immune system or chronic lung disease have a higher risk of being harmed by mold. These people are especially at risk of contracting lung infections from mold, which is why it is generally recommended for them to stay away from wooded areas, cut grass, and other places that are likely to contain pollen and allergens. However, for the most part, mold does not harm healthy people.

Irritation is often caused by volatile organic compounds that mold creates as a byproduct. The symptoms can range from the physical, such as sneezing and congestion and headaches, to mental, such as difficulty concentrating. Additional symptoms can include skin rash, eye irritation and dizziness. Often these symptoms are caused by mycotoxins, a toxic substance emitted by mold. The harmful effects of mycotoxins can be aggravated by other factors such as diet and genetics.

Most molds don't cause allergic reactions. But if you have chronic allergies that don't go away with the seasons, that's a high indicator that you may have a mold allergy. In addition, if you or your family members are allergic to pollen or dander, you're more likely to have an allergy to mold.

Disease is the least common health hazard associated with mold, but people who have weakened immune systems, whether because they have AIDS or are undergoing chemotherapy or transplant surgery, are at risk of contracting infections from mold that normally wouldn't harm a healthy person.

Safety Tips for Dealing With Mold

If you have a small patch of mold, you can take care of it on your own with a little unscented detergent. All molds release spores, some of which are harmful when inhaled, so wearing a dust mask is a good idea. Wear safety goggles and gloves as well to minimize contact. People with health and respiratory problems should never clean mold, and small children and pets should be kept away from a contaminated area.

Never paint over mold, as it will still be able to grow under the paint. Bathrooms are a prime target for mold and should be cleaned with mold-killing cleaning products. If any part of your home floods, dry the area and any absorbent materials such as rugs or carpets as soon as possible.

High humidity can create a friendly environment for mold. If your home has excessive humidity levels, you may have a problem with your heating system. If you live in a humid climate, a dehumidifier can help you prevent mold. If the mold is deeply embedded in an area of your home or occupies more than 10 square feet of space, contact a professional mold remediation expert. If you choose to tackle the problem on your own, wear a particle filter mask approved by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Starting An Internet Based Home Business - The Basics

An internet based home business allows you to earn money without leaving your home. You won't have to compromise your time with the family ever again just because you were caught in traffic traveling from one job to another. Here are a few tips that can help you get started without the hassle.

Although selling goods online is much cheaper than renting an actual store and paying for other people's services, you still need to put in as much effort when it comes to researching about your product. Firstly, to get an idea of how many people are selling your product you need to do is type its name into the search engines. Competition is always a two-sided game, and the more common your product is, the broader your marketing niche gets. Striking up a balance between your supply and the potential demand you are anticipating is the key.

An internet based home business that caters to a targeted market that is just big enough to keep the business running will be a success ful one. An an example, you can cater to techies in general, but you don't need to sell every new gadget that comes your way. You can think about music-loving techies and sell MP3 players, but then you would have to think about the purchasing power of these potential consumers as well. It is then safe to narrow down your product to mp3 players that are designed and packaged specifically for lower middle class consumers who are always on the go.

Although some people think it is unnecessary to think about these small things when you are running an internet based home business, it is actually very important to do so. Without researching, you would be blindly marketing products without knowing who they are meant for. You can package your website and your sales copy just right when you know exactly who your product attracts. The key to delivering effective messages is in knowing exactly who you are talking to.

It is actually safer to use auction forum-type websites li ke Ebay to test-run the demand for your products when you are just starting with your internet based home business. When it comes to writing the sales copy there, you can try out different approaches and you will also be exposed to your competition without spending too much money on a website initially.

If you find these forum-type sales pages too limited, and your product is gaining positive response from consumers, you can then set out to build your own website. There is no need for this to be a big investment immediately. Initially you can begin by using a free blog site first, and then just invest in a unique and catchy domain name. It is advisable to choose a domain name carries your brand and significant keywords which suggest what kind of products you are selling.

You should always optimize your text content whether you are making a more complicated site or a simple blog for your products. Hire someone who can compose informative and well-written SEO-frien dly articles if you are unable to write yourself. For example you can write product reviews, product descriptions or simple self-help articles related to the products you are selling.

Posting your goods on auction forums online has one advantage. You won't have to worry about providing secure payment databases for your customers. If you are running your internet based home business on your own website you will have to invest in encrypted pages on a regular website.

By doing thorough research into your product and target market will set you on the road to building a successful internet based home business.

To Succeed in Your Internet Based Home Business You Must Have These Principles in Place

If you have any interest in owning a legitimate home based internet business then you must also have heard that only 5% of all the newbies who set up an online business actually succeed and make any money.

To be one of the successes in the 5% group there are six principles that you will need to achieve as an aspiring newbie to the internet marketing world and we are going to talk about them here.

1. First and foremost you need to have a burning desire to succeed. If you are unable to visualize what you want that success to look like, you are unlikely to join the 5% of top internet marketing money makers. To get to that point you need to be able to live your desire, see and taste it, as this is what will drive you to get the kind of results you want.

2. The next thing to do is to plan and focus. Your goals and objectives are very important, but you also need to work out a plan of action. No business whether it is an internet based home business or a bricks and mortar business, will succeed without a specific plan on how it will work.

All of these points must be written down. Write down your long, medium and short term goals and how you are going to achieve them and read it everyday. In fact your goals should be rewritten at least once a month, even it there is no change in them. By doing this you will focus on what is necessary and keep working at it.

3. Discipline. When one runs an internet based business from home, it is very easy to get side-tracked and not do the work required to succeed. Even though you are your own boss and can decide which hours you choose to work, you do still need to put those hours in and do what you have to do in order to achieve the results you want. This is one of the reasons why planning is so important.

4. The ability to never give up. It is at this point that the majority of internet businesses tend to fail. The skills required to succeed online can be learned by anybody with enough desire to do so, but many people do not have the will power to stick it out until the tide starts to turn in their favour.

Every business has its failures and if you give up at the first failure your chances of ever succeeding are minimal. If you think about Edison who invented the light bulb, he had hundreds of failures before he eventually succeeded and most successful people will tell you the same thing, it is not the failures that are serious it is whether you fail to get up and try again.

5. Be passionate about what you do. If you do not totally love the idea of working from home on the internet, then don't do it. If you don't love the products that you sell or the work you are doing it will become a chore and make you unhappy, so be sure to choose something that you can be enthusiastic about. You need to look forward to getting up in the morning and pursuing your desire.

6. Learn everything you possible can about your business. This is a major key in becoming successful. Continuous study will keep your mind active and filled with new ideas and solutions and also keep you updated on the latest trends and developments in the internet marketing world.

These six principles for success if followed wholeheartedly will set you on the path to a successful and fulfilling future as an internet based home business marketer. Just commit yourself to the task, work at it persistently and follow the principles here for an exciting adventure amongst the top 5%.

A small but powerful group of people with inside information would say "now is the best time to start an internet based home business".

Why? Here's a little secret I'd like to share with you.

One and a half billion people (yes seriously) are online right now as you are reading this, as a potential market for your business on the internet.

1. Unemployment is at an all time high and rising. The United States is now 6% higher in unemployment than it was before the recession of 2001.

2. There is no recession on the internet. Technology is advancing so quickly that the dream of us ordinary folk working for ourselves is now a reality.

3. Two industries still shedding jobs are the Manufacturers with job losses of over 212,000 and the Financial Services industry with 79,000 in 2009 and these are the start!

So the proof is right there - there has never been a better time to pursue a home based business than now.

Here's another thing to bear in mind...

If you are still relying on a 'JOB' for your family's security - maybe it's time to re-think your life plan.
