Making an investment is a very important thing to do if you are into the home based business industry. Some people see the value in investing while others think is a waste of time. Now the funny thing is that neither opinion is wrong because you will encounter certain promotional methods that will give you good results while you will come across others that don’t produce anything at all. This article will further instruct you on the best way to determined whether your investment was a good one or not.

The best way to determine if your small business investment was a good one or not is simply to follow the ROI formula. Now you are probably wondering what those that fancy word mean, well it is quite a simple term that stands for your Return On Investment. To understand what this is you must understand a little about business math, so here is a quick example lesson.

Lets pretend that the promotional method that you chose to use cost you 50 dollars for the month of promotion and in that month because of that promotional method you were able to make 200 dollars in your business. Now in order to get the ROI of this example you take your initial investment from the total amount you gain from that promotional method. In this case is 200 dollars minus 50 dollars, which equals to 150 dollars. Now the 150 dollars is your profit and your investment was 50 dollars. So if the promotional method follows the same pattern for every 50 dollars invested your ROI will be 200 dollars, which means 150 dollars profit.

Once you get the hang of this formula you will be able to tell if the investment is a good one or not by just calculating the ROI and the profit that you make from it.
