What Is A Home Business?
by Craig Ritsema
First, let me clarify what kind of Home Business Iím discussing.
There are many different kinds including just about anything that
you could do from your home. Iím specifically talking about the
kind of home business you do from your computer on the internet.
It could be either a part time or full time opportunity.
Most online home businesses are involved with promoting another
companies goods and services. The kind of goods and services
varies greatly. This is the simplest and least costly way to
start a home business as most people do not have products of
their own to sell.
So why should I sell another companies products? The simple
reason is because they pay you a commission on what you sell.
Here again, how this is done varies considerably from one company
to the next. Generally they have created what is called an
affiliate program which you can join -- either for free or for
a fee. You then become an affiliate of that company, kind of like
a salesperson, but you are not an employee of the company.
Now this is starting to sound like a REAL business! That is
exactly my point and that is what you should expect if you are
interested in starting your own. Just because it is done on the
internet with visibility to the world, donít expect it to happen
overnight -- even though that is what most of us would like.
A home business can be a success if our expectations are right
and we pursue it like any other legitimate business opportunity!
Several things to consider if you are considering your own
1. DECIDE WHETHER TO JOIN A COMPANYíS AFFILIATE PROGRAM OR PURSUE
OTHER OPPORTUNITIES. There are many different ways to start a
home business. My suggestion would be to start with only one
opportunity and learn it so that you are not overwhelmed with
information and training. If you are just starting out, there is
a lot to learn -- but it is not difficult -- just takes a little
time. Support from an affiliate program can assist you with the
2. DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND RESEARCH BEFORE YOU SELECT A COMPANY FOR
WHOM YOU WILL WORK WITH. No one wants to spend time, effort and
money building a business only to end up with promoting a
business product which is no longer available, or is not
available globally. How and when they pay their commissions
should also be considered. Is the company a member of the Better
Business Bureau? Are the products something you would buy? Do
they have products? How long have they been in business?
3. FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH MONEY YOU CAN SPEND EACH MONTH ON YOUR
BUSINESS. With an online business, it does not take much but you
need some method to promote with. Setting up your own website is
probably the most common way and can be done with a minimal
investment. If lack of money is an issue, there are free ways to
promote but more time involvement is required.
4. MAKE SURE THE COMPANY YOU WORK WITH PROVIDES TRAINING AND
SUPPORT. This can be a huge benefit if you are just starting out.
Once you learn, you can find your own niche or specialty and
perhaps become the next home business guru.
Starting your own home business can be very exciting and
rewarding! It can also be a solid source of income for years to
come. Donít expect it to just happen, but it will with
perseverance and determination. There are not very many other
business opportunities like this which you can start so easily
from your home. Take advantage of it!
