There are many types of business models to choose from, which to be honest can be confusing at times. This review is going to unravel, which is the best of home based business. And explain to you the reasons why it is the best and why it would be suited to. Building a online business or a business built from bricks and mortar isn’t the main point. What is important is where we decide to conduct our business and with whom. As Well as taking the costs into consideration.
Creating, building/growing your business will take time, but like anything built from nothing, is very rewarding, mentally and financially. To achieve such a business, you need to surround yourself with the right kind of people. People who have been saturated in the kind of knowledge your business will need to grow! My aim is to introduce you to the best online business minds you’d ever wish to meet. Business minds willing and longing to help you achieve your business goals, online or off! These type of people live for knowledge and constantly are pushing for success!
The best of home based business.
Our home is regarded has our place of safety and when we are there, nothing can harm us. Unfortunately, that’s not quite true. Because no matter what we do there’s always going to be someone trying to sell us something or trying to take away our hard-earned cash! To complete the assault, we’re bombarded with ever rising bills. Yes, our homes will keep us safe from the elements but we’re still open prey to everything else, via our letter boxes or emails.
But there’s a way to add some balance to how we live and that is by taking a look at, the best home of home based business. I believe this to be the world of affiliate marketing, which is of course is my opinion. An opinion that I would love to share with you. My reasons for making such a statement is based on, over 30 years of online business, coupled with 38 years of offline business.
I have found them both very challenging at times, hard work, yet rewarding, why else would I continue building business, after business. Now, enough about me, here’s a list of home based businesses, that you can start from the comfort of your home with next, to no money at all:
- Affiliate marketing.
- Ebay seller.
- Website builder/designer.
- Buy and sell website domains.
- E book writer.
Developing and growing a profitable business online, from home will take some time and work. But the fun and the sense of achievement you’ll experience will be worth the effort.
Every business model I have listed above is a gem in its own right, but if the business model you choose, is chosen and driven by your passion. To me that is a very powerful blend for success. I would like to add, the best of home based business, is going to be the business that suits your needs!
Affiliate marketing – E book writer – Copywriter – Blogging.
Building a business based upon key tapping, can easily be achieved by anyone with a head for writing, research and originality. The business model and chances of success online are high, but it’s not without hard work and perseverance. The content you choose to represent could be for yourself or for a company, the choice is all yours.
Affiliate marketing is all about creating a platform where you can publicize a product or service, for a company or companies, with the intention of making a sale. Your role in this partnership is straight forward, you receive a percentage of the sale or the cost of the service. When a customer uses your link to make a purchase. Affiliate marketing is the first business on my list because the beauty of the business captured my heart.
Whilst surfing online, I came across a company called Wealthy Affiliate and I have never looked back. I, plus 2 million people have found their strategy to learning and online business, the perfect recipe for success. I can’t praise their platform enough, for me they answered and have continued to help and support all of my business endeavours.
E book writer.
To me becoming an E book writer is all about the future. The world is constantly changing, do you remember when we used to use telephone directories to find phone numbers? Let me quickly explain what a directory is, a telephone directory was a large book, that listed the phone number of every person who rented a telephone. These books are no longer needed because of the ability store our favourite numbers in our mobile phones. And we’re able to find whatever we need online, from our mobile devices.
Now, I’m not saying that books will become obsolete but having the ability to access many types of E books from your mobile devices does offer a certain advantage over carrying bags of books. E book writers do have a bright future.
If you’re a skilled writer, why not hire out your skills writing content for companies or affiliate marketers. The services of a talented copy writer is always in demand. The price you charge for your services will depend on:
- Content originality.
- S.E. O/Google friendly content.
Your fee can be anywhere from £15 up to £100’s, which makes being a copywriter one of the best of home based business to get involved in.
Writing a blog is easy to do, what is difficult is to create a blog that people want to read. So, what is a blog? Well, a blog can be a number of things but the most common type of blogs are content reviews. Someone using their skills in a certain field, to comment on a product or service they have used or they like. The likeness to an Affiliate marketer, in my eyes are the same. The only difference is an Affiliate marketer writes his or her content for a purpose, whilst a blogger might write his or her content for informative reasons, without having any type of agenda.
Buying and selling items is one of the oldest business models around. It works online or off and doesn’t require much money, skill or knowledge to start. Although, having some marketing skills would be of great advantage. The best advice I can give you is to always follow the golden rule and that is, “Supply and demand”. There’s no point in buying and trying to sell an item that nobody wants!
This is a recipe for failure!
Now for the good news! Ebay will provide you with almost everything you’ll need or it can be found on their platform. Depending on how you’d like to structure your business. In most cases you’ll probably start by listing one item, then another, until you’ve listed several. Add a carousel to your page and you’re good to go. You’re next step should be to create a website that links to your Ebay account, this will allow you drive traffic from your Ebay page to your website. Use this to market other items and services.
Building a website is easy but maintaining it can be hard work! I have found that even though you can create a website from drag and drop technology, there’s still no drag and drop facility available when things go wrong. I’m not saying this a problem with drag and drop tech, what I’m saying is these type of problems can only be resolved manually and quickly if you have the know how!
I have had issues with my websites that required some tweaking and no matter how many times I Googled the solution, the answer just didn’t seem clear! That’s when you realise you need the human touch, it saves time and avoids mental frustration. If you’re website savvy, you should market yourself as a website builder and problem solver too. Add a maintenance package to your services, but be competitive. A good website designer is always in demand!
Buying and selling domains – website builder or designer.
The online business world is constantly growing and to leverage the full benefits of the internet, your business is going to need a website. Web based businesses are being created at a phenomenal rate and every business is going to need a domain name. This is your big intro, now this sounds easier than it really is. Buying a domain is very easy and often enough very cheap, but purchasing a domain name that’s worth 20 times its value to someone else is the trick!
One thing to bear in mind is all website domains need to be renewed. If a business fails to renew their domain, it can be brought by anyone, most big businesses wouldn’t let this happen but mistakes do happen and to benefit, you need to be in the know! Keep the basic rule in mind and that is supply and demand. If you have what someone wants, they’ll pay to obtain it!
Fancy yourself as a fundraiser?
The main reasons for creating a business is to obtain financial freedom and control over your own destiny. Using the fundraiser business model to achieve this, might seem strange because a fundraiser, usually raises money for charities. Your role wouldn’t be to sell, it would purely be to supply a website where people wanting to support a particular charity event could make a donation.
Here’s the good news, hosting a platform for the purpose of charities, could net you 2.9% of the donations. So, a donation of £5,000.00 would give you approximately £1,724.13 of profit. Not bad hey? The business model is one of the best of home based business and is ideal for a home business, that does not require hours of maintenance.
Creating business wealth from home.
Creating and building a business from home offers a variety of benefits, the first being security and the second, which is being your own boss and finally, no overheads. No business is without its ups and downs, the biggest problem I have found that comes from running a business from home, is learning how to manage your time.
I’m not saying it’s not possible but I found I was so eager to get my business up and running, that I committed most of my waking hours into my business. I would like to let you know that a business isn’t going to be successful overnight, regardless of how many hours you commit to it! Take it steady, allocate a scheduled amount of hours per day and stick to it. Creating a business from home is easy, making it successful is a little harder and takes time!
Finding the best of home based business for you.
So, how do you find a business that’s suited to you? Well, your first hurdle is to recognise your strengths, once you’ve realised this, then you need to find a business model that complements your abilities and your free time. To help you structure your business follow this template:
1. Niche – business model.
2. Business plan.
3. Business platform or website.
4. Training – marketing – S.E.O.
5. Access to finance. (If required)
The steps are easy to follow and makes for the best start for success, to any home based business. Choose a business name that reflects what your business is about. Then move to your business plan, it should contain the foundations your business will be built on. Giving precise guidance to how you will finance, grow, staff and build your business.
Your next step is to decide what/how you plan to conduct your business, this might mean you’ll need a website, which will mean you’ll need a hosting package, my advice here is to pay attention to the details. Your hosting package should offer your business a platform where you can conduct your business. Offer you security, an email facility, great bandwidth and an adequate data package.
This usually means you should be looking for unlimited storage, 1GB memory, SSL certificate and the ability to host a number of websites, without any additional charges. Now, it’s time to grow your business, for this step you’re going to need training in effective marketing and S.E.O (Search engine optimisation) strategies. There’s a number of places you can find this valuable information from, in fact you could search online and utilise the free stuff, before you decide to pay someone!
Building your business dream.
I would like to stick my neck out on this subject by saying, “Who doesn’t dream of having their own business”. Life can can be busy and it’s not without its challenges too. But building additional income streams would make life easier, do you agree? Our world revolves on money, money to live, money to pay bills and money to eat. It’s uses are endless and so should your income streams.
The law of attraction says, things materialize when we dream or focus on positive thoughts. Now, no matter how many positive thoughts you have or how many dreams you engage in, you’ll never build a business without ACTION. To grow a successful business, it’s going to take a lot more work! BELIEVE in yourself and your abilities, but never underestimate the power of networking.
The quickest and most profitable way to build your dream business, is by working/speaking with like-minded entrepreneurs. People who have been exactly where you are ( At the beginning of building a business) and have acquired the knowledge and know how you’ll need to make your first step count. Please keep this saying in mind, “A thought without action, is only but a dream”.
My conclusion for the best of home based business.
I would like you to use this review for guidance, the best business for me might be totally different for you. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not a great business idea. You’ll have to have some idea of what type of business you’re looking for and what’s best suited to your raw abilities and needs.
I would also like to add, when I was looking around for a new business idea, I made my final decision based on a few points. These points for me were based on my financial status and they are:
- Start-up costs.
- My chances of success.
- Estimated time to achieve a residual income.
Unfortunately, many business ideas will offer you a business blueprint for success, once you’ve paid out a small fortune! This isn’t the best way to try to earn a residual income by spending your hard-earned money! The best way forward was to use every perk available to me, which means FREE if possible.
My Final words.
I would like to remind you that we are all unique and whereas, there’re many businesses of the same type. Choosing the best of home based business will be unique to you.
