Other Than Network Marketing What Businesses Can You Work From Home?
Working from home is an excellent idea not only for moms who want stay at home jobs but also for executives who want more control and options for their lives. Here are 3 solid entrepreneur ideas that serve to provide business ideas for beginners.
Since we are talking about beginners I assume no entrepreneurial experience of the past. Therefore, the first prerequisite, even before we begin discussing work from home ideas, is that you must develop a basic discipline to be an entrepreneur.
Developing this discipline is as tricky as going to the gym. Every January if 100 people start out on fitness trips, by February on 35 remain and by March the numbers whittle down to 12. A typical 6-month fitness program sees just about 3% people making it through strongly till the end. Like wise entrepreneurship.
This article is not about how you must develop the discipline. It is about work from home ideas you can use. So with that prelude, let me delve right into the meat and potatoes.
The first powerful idea that is redefining the way the world lives is network marketing. What makes this so revolutionary is that it truly gives control and choices to the people who make the effort to understand the industry and follow its processes for a short 5-year span. Five is not an absolute number by it takes about that much time to retire with a hundred thousand dollar annual income that arises from a few hours work every week. The work by itself is that of guiding people and leading teams. The process to develop networks orients and trains members into entrepreneurial and leadership skills, so success is inevitable for good students determined to stick it out.
One minus point about network marketing in the overall context of work from home ideas is that it requires interacting with people and that is not exactly something you do from your home alone. It involves visits to other's homes to form the networks and counsel personally. However a lot of networks are being built purely online nowadays.
Coming to things purely online, blogging is the next work from home idea. If you have - or are inclined to develop - a skill for writing, the blogging world is your oyster. Why? Because people love to read other people's experiences on various purchases as the veracity of the vendors of the products and services is waning. If you look at the online store Amazon, buying decisions are made based on customer reviews more than anything else. So, as a blogger, you can be creating money sources from commissions on the products you write about and review. If successful, your blog could also attract advertisements!
Which brings me to the third work from home idea, which is niche marketing. I have a lot of articles on niche marketing that you can search on EzineArticles but it will suffice to say that with a little training you can develop websites in sharply focused niches that people search for. You become an expert in the niche and charge in various ways for the authority you carry.
