Why Choose a Home Based Business?

Home businesses provide you the freedom to choose your hours, and create the income you choose

Having a home-based business can be very profitable if you choose the correct business to start with. As a word of warning, not all opportunities are the same. So I suggest you do your due diligence and search out the right one for you. Some use a churn and burn method. Their main focus is to get you to buy in, and then move onto the next person.

Always ensure the company has a good track record. Great training, contact phone numbers or physical contact for support, are also essential.

I find businesses that provide online training videos are among the best. This gives you the opportunity to learn at your own pace.

Remember this: “business is there for you to create freedom, not to become another job“. Weigh up all the pros and cons, and choose wisely on your home business venture.

A home-based business can involve direct selling services and products. It can also be an online venture such as affiliate marketing, or even take it up a notch, and you can buy into a business and become a licensee. As a licensee, you have greater rewards but it can be more costly upfront.

Some of the benefits of being a licensee include greater commissions and a bigger commitment. A bigger commitment meaning you tend to focus more. (Sometimes if the cost is small, so is the commitment.). The best part about buying a license is the competition for your products is usually less.

Making Money and Getting Paid
As a licensee, affiliate or representative of the business, you receive a commission from your sales. Most products that are sold via direct sales companies, are not usually available through your normal outlets. If you choose the internet way, The products are usually available through other websites, and it is up to you to bring visitors to your site, otherwise known as driving traffic to an offer.

If you are selling products make sure the products can be sold online. It may take a little longer for you to establish yourself, and your site, if you are not already familiar with the online world. But in the long run, your client base is much larger.

Online Skills
Learning online skills is a great way to increase your value in the marketplace. Once you’ve learned to drive traffic and convert your leads through a website, with one product, you will be able to replicate it with another.

When looking into a home business, here are some questions to ask

  • First make sure the products are well searched for and in demand.
  • How much is the product being sold for? High commission products mean you have to sell less, but possibly not as many.
  • Does the company have an up-sell, possibly a taster to pique your clients’ interest, and then a range of up-sells in a sequenced fashion? I find if you are able to run your clients through a system it is much easier.
  • Is the business system sound and tested?


Advantages to running your own home-based business

  • Freedom to set your own hours and location.
  • Most businesses you can run from home. In this way, you have low overheads and relatively no stock.
  • Most marketing tools have been tested to work and they are all supplied.

Home based or online businesses require desire and self-motivation. Don’t kid yourself – they can be hard to get going, but if you follow the system that has been laid out for you, you will find success. Choose the style of business carefully. If meeting and recruiting isn’t your style look to other online opportunities. Do your due diligence and make sure your new home-based marketing business works for you. With good systems and effort, your new business can fulfill your goals.
