Work At Home Money

Many of us start home businesses for many reasons. Some of us are sick of working for bosses that donít give a darn about you and there are some of us that work at home to spend more time with family. Yet others are just starting home businesses to make some extra cash.

If you want to seriously start a home business you need to have reasons why you want to do it in the first place. I have had many email over the past few months from people saying that they want to work at home to make lots of money. Thatís fine, but what will you do with the money?

Having a plan for the money you make will keep you motivated. Perhaps you want to buy a new house. Or maybe youíd like to pay your kids way to college or university. Whatever it is you are working at home for make sure you have a plan for the money you are going to be making!

7 Secrets Of A Successful Home Business
Written by Kim Beardsmore

Work from home. These days it seems as though everyone is talking about these three words. If you don't understand the critical factors that make a home business successful - you will fail to find a business that has the potential of delivering you amazing results. So, when you are looking for a home based business that is truly going to deliver you additional income, or better still, replace your job income, read on to find out exactly what you should be looking for.

Success Factor 1 - Is the market expanding?

Whatever business you choose, you must tap into a huge, expanding market. Do you want to put all your energies into a market that is shrinking?

The business will need to be one that can serve the needs and wants of potentially millions of people from a wide variety of demographics but most importantly the baby boomers. - those people born between the 1945 and the early 1960s. Baby boomers are the largest consumer demographic with the highest disposable income base.

Success Factor 2 - Is there a market trend in your direction?

Not only should the market be huge and expanding, you should also look at just how far that market has to grow. This is where market trends are important because you will want to identify huge shifts in consumer spending. Not only is the market growing, but better still, people are diverting spending away from other products and services in preference to yours!

Market trends occur when massive volumes of people's spending habits are all moving in a similar direction. This may seem like something the average person cannot readily see for themselves, but fortunately, you don't have to have a degree in economics to get a good idea of spotting a potential a market trend.

Here's a hint to where baby boomers are shifting their spending:

  • To have more money and financial security
  • To have better health
  • To assure a good retirement
  • Home business opportunities - corporate burnout
  • To look and feel younger
  • To have more time freedom or time flexibility
To find a home based business that satisfies an emerging need or want of the Baby Boomers is to find a business that has an increasing likelihood of being in an industry that has some significant future.

Success Factor 3 - Is the product one that people will use often?

You will also need to look for a consumable product or service that is replaced regularly. Preferably, it should be one that people can't get anywhere else. This will be the type of product that will generate repeat business and create a steady flow of income. People fall in love with products and services that save them time, or deliver a solution to a recurring problem. The product should also represent value for money to the consumer.

Success Factor 4 - How is the Product/Service Delivered to the Customer?

Whatever product or service your home based business provides, if you personally have to physically deliver those products/services to your customers, you are choosing to significantly limit your income potential out of that business. This way you are not limited by your own resources and can operate in a global market through the internet.

The best solution is to find a business where the products/services can be delivered electronically over the Internet via automation, or are delivered directly to the consumers by the parent company - without you having to be involved, other than placing the order.

Success Factor 5 - Is there a successful business system you can plug into to leverage your time?

Let's face it, you want to get up and running and be making money as soon as possible.

A business with a higher potential of success is going to be one that allows you to maximize your personal effort. This means there must be well designed and integrated marketing tools, and efficient automated processes that don't require a financial degree to understand.

In order to get operational you don't want to have to spend your precious time figuring out how to do the business. You need to find something that provides you with a clear business plan and an automated business process for you to follow.

Success Factor 6 - Is there a support structure you can plug into while you learn your business?

Once you get started, are you going to be left alone or will there be someone there to guide you? Choose a home based business that also offers a strong support structure - without additional setup expenses! Make sure someone will be there to mentor and guide you - especially in the early stages.

Success Factor 7 - Is the organization credible, stable and have a track record of delivering on their promises?

There is an old saying - "a fish rots from the head". Meaning that if you want to assess the quality of an organization, a good place to start is with those who are running the organization.

Have a good look at the people who are in charge and ask yourself the following questions.

How long has this organization been in business? Who is at helm? Does this individual have a good business record? Are they well respected in their industry? Is the company well respected? Does the company make unsubstantiated claims? Have they been able to establish a loyal customer base so far? Do they meet all government standards and qualifications in the countries they operate? Is there a refund policy? Can they deliver on their remuneration promises?

You should take the time to get to know the company behind the product and the service you will be relying on to make your decisions about your business. Don't just be dazzled by the so- called income testimonies!

There are a number of home business opportunities out there all vying for your attention. Remember, the home based business industry is one of the emerging mega trends, so the range available is going to be expanding. Armed with these seven success factors you are well equipped to sort out those business opportunities that have a greater potential of providing you with financial freedom.

Run A Contest

A well known secret of being a successful home business is to not only advertise offline, but build a web site online and advertise your business over the internet! Why? Well, your reach over the internet will far surpass the number of people you can reach offline.

I am a big advocate of building your own web site, or securing your own piece of "virtual real estate". It makes you professional and separates you from the chaff so to speak.

Building a web site isnít enough though. You need to get people to come and visit and return over and over again. How can you get people to come back to your web site for more?

Letís say you sell private tutor lessons for your home business. A great way to get people to come back to your site is by running a contest! Just set up a form on your web site where they can fill in their name and email address and voila, theyíre entered!

You could run a contest each month and randomly select one winning person. This person could be given perhaps 2 free hours of tutoring, or some free gift or product.

Running a contest each month is a great way to get people to return to your site because people love to receive something of value for free! And, the more return visitors you have, the more likely you are to make a sale.

Pop-Up Stopper

If you do a lot of business online or surf the internet a lot youíll be quite familiar with pop-up advertising. After years of abuse from this form of advertising, many of us have gotten absolutely sick of seeing new screens pop up that we didnít want to see in the first place!

Google has created a toolbar that keeps pop-ups from activating, or kills the process. Trust me, if you are on the internet a lot and have to deal with dozens of pop-ups every day, youíll love this toolbar of Googleís!

I refuse to implement pop-ups on my site because I feel it is unprofessional and not called for. Iím sure you feel the same way. To download this free pop-up blocker, just click here: Google Toolbar
