Too many moms want to stay at home, but can’t, and feel overwhelmed and intimidated by all the “work from home” and home-based business ads that constantly flood their mailboxes. Are they legit? Are they scams? Are moms actually targeted to get all this spam? What’s going on?Right up front, I’ll be honest. I sell a few things on the internet. And I DO also occasionally target stay-at-home-moms for home-based-business opportunities. And here’s why. There are two very good reasons for it.1. I’ve always had a very soft spot in my heart for single moms in particular, have dated several of them, and eventually married one with 7 kids (4 of her own and 3 adopted). Added to my one child from a previous marriage, we have 8 kids between us and are considering adopting more, kids at risk in particular. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I understand the struggles of a stay-at-home-mom, and in particular, a single mom. And I have always wanted to have a way that I enable them to stay home and pay their bills by working online. So over the last 6 months, I have been and still am developing ways to do that, allow single moms to work from home and still survive.2. Stay at home moms can be flexible with their time. If these same moms have any internet savvy, then I do have the ability to help them while they are helping me. I have products that they can sell and receive large commissions on, informational products that are designed to get people to buy higher priced items from me later on. My commission to the salesperson is simply my “advertising” cost. These are legit products, and I am NOT trying to rip off women. I am trying to enable them to survive at home, single moms in particular, working for me as my defacto “sales force”. And I’m not the only marketer who knows this and tries to advertise this way.For example. Like many internet marketers that have targeted women for ads, I have a number of products. For a $0 buy-in and 100% commission (referral fee) of $7 straight into an affiliate’s or referrer’s (salesperson’s or salesmom’s) Paypal account, I sell several ebooks. In fact, there are entire websites dedicated to selling $7 ebooks like this that also pay up to 100% commission. For the woman willing to learn how to market these ebooks online (yes, training is available, some of it free, lots of it not), she can indeed make a pretty good paycheck working from home, just earning high commissions off products like these.And for the woman willing to take the next step up and make an investment into a more stable and potentially MUCH higher income that comes in month after month, I also represent a business site that requires a higher initial investment or up-front buy-in. This weeds out the people that might sign up but not do anything about it. It also weeds out the negative whiners who aren’t going to work hard anyway. If a person has invested in something, they will probably work at it to get their money back out. I simply want to know that if I am going to invest my time training or helping someone, they are going to be serious about making it work.And yes, I agree; there are LOTS of scams out there too, and they give the legit businesses a very bad name, and it makes me pretty unhappy. The buy-in business I represent has the ability to take someone to 6 figures with enough time invested into it. But the upfront membership buy-in scares off all but the most serious and able marketers (but that’s OK – we only want the serious ones for that job/site anyway).So check each offer out. Check out their reputation, any reviews about them, their customer integrity, business model, things like that. I bought into the business above because I personally know and respect the owner, and his opportunity is one of the best I’ve ever seen for online businesses (and I’ve checked out several). It was enough to convince me.And speaking as a marketer, I WANT people to be successful selling my products, because if they aren’t successful, I’m not successful. It’s in my best interest to help them out. This is what makes for a successful marketing campaign – everybody wins.In summary, there ARE legit opportunities for stay-at-home-moms, in part because they can be the ideal internet marketing sales-force. More power to them! But do be careful too, because there are too many scams also targeted at them. I wish this wasn’t the case.

In 1992 Michael Richards found a method of creating wax from soybeans. Ever since his discovery, soy wax has been used as a natural and safe alternative by many candle making companies. The soy candle has become much more popular to use than beeswax or paraffin wax options. While beeswax is natural and has a wonderful scent, it is quite a bit more expensive than a soy candle without offering an increase in quality. In paraffin wax you may be subjected to unnatural resins and possibly toxic impurities.Going Green With A Soy CandleMany consumers are choosing soy candles because they burn considerably longer and do not produce the messy residue that you get with paraffin candles. Another green benefit of a soy candle is that they do not create poisonous fumes. These are just a couple of the reasons that that soy is a great alternative, not only for our families, but for the environment as well.Soy Wax Is Easy To CleanIf you have spent much time burning candles, you know how messy candle wax can be and how difficult it can be to cleanup. If you get beeswax or paraffin wax drippings on a fabric or surface you may be spending a lot of time and energy getting it out. Soy wax, on the other hand, comes out pretty easily with only soap and water. I do not know about you, but this reason alone would make soy candles the only choice for our home.The Candle BusinessThere are a lot of people searching for a simple, affordable home business these days and the soy candle business is giving thousands of these people the opportunity they are searching for. One of the exciting things about the soy candle business is that there are multiple ways for you to make money, and that is what it is really all about isn’t it. Whether you are searching for a means to supplement your current income or make this a full time business, the gourmet soy candle business may be what you are looking for. If you love scented candles, this really is a scented candle lover’s dream business.
Nowadays making money online is easy although making big cash is hard but it can be achieve with dedication and hard work. Making money online is far better than casual job where there is always threat of boss and a set of works to complete in schedule, pressure from all side all the time. Whereas in online money making scheme you have your own set of free time to work, most of the time at home with families.First of all what is passive income? Passive income are those income which you get monthly without much hard work from your estate. Here your estate will be your blog. So through your blog, you can generate a monthly income.Blogging is like a maintaining a dairy where you write daily work. Through blogging you can write your favorite topics or the topics which is very popular or hot at the time of writing. You don’t have to be a great writer. Just write enough for the information which every people is searching for. So when people search for the information, they will come to your blog to read the information. They are known as potential visitors. But how would we make passive income from these visitors.The main game here is to put some CPC advertisement ads like AdSense or Bidvertiser. These ads are so similar to the contents of your blog that the visitors hardly recognize it. They think that it is a part of the blog information. So think if these visitors while reading your blog clicks the ad then you would make money per click. 1 click will fetch you around $0.1 – $5. So think that you get 200 visitors daily and 20 people click 1 ad each. So you get total 20 clicks and suppose single ad clicked gives you $0.2. Then you make 20 x $0.2 = $4 per day. So $120 per month from a single blog.Now consider increasing your number of blogs like say you have 10 blogs. From each blog you earn $120 per month that is $120 x 10 = $1200 per month from 10 blogs. Now did you see the huge amount of dollars you are getting? This is just the beginning of the game. Try increasing the number of visitors through marketing and number of blogs also. Your revenue per month will increase a lot.At the starting, for few months say 5 – 6 months. You’ll have to work hard as nothing comes for free but after this hard work you’ll have to spend only few hours daily to maintain all the blogs and the money will still flow in your doorstep while you’re away in vacation on the cool beach thus making passive income for you.
Many of you are failing in the freelancing business not because of inadequate skills, but because of a bad image. In order to be successful, you should present yourself as a leading expert in your field. For example, if you are a programmer and you want to work on programming projects as a freelancer, you have to demonstrate your skills so they can attract potential buyers.When I started, I didn’t have a portfolio. I relied only on words and that’s the main reason for my first failures. It was a real pain for me to know that I am not selected to take any projects, having in mind that I have placed over 20 bids on 20 different projects. I was disappointed and disgusted, but I decided to experiment and I took a different approach. I canceled the remaining bids, opened my favorite text editor and started to write my portfolio. It contained all of my recent works as well as an extensive list of all technologies, languages and programs which I am using on a daily basis. Then, I saved the file and uploaded it on my personal blog. Then I went to the freelancing site and placed a few more bids with the link to my portfolio inside.Amazingly, after a few hours I won my first project. After a day, I have already completed the work and requested my money from the site and after a week, I was having my first $30USD into my PayPal account. So my advice is to write a compelling and eye-catching portfolio and I guarantee you will receive many more projects by doing so. Not only you’ll look more professional and trustworthy, but the buyers will no what exactly you can do for them and what you have done before, so they will have a realistic expectations when they choose you to work for them. Yes, many times you will not be selected because, for example, a provider with better feedback has placed his / her bid on the same project or because the buyer wish to work with a provider from a chosen country or territory, but your chance of success is doubled if you have a good and professional portfolio at your disposal.
For the seekers of get rich quick schemes, the first question that comes to mind is – can it make me millions? The truth is that yes it is possible; however, there is a lot to look at. It is possible it may thunder, but it likely won’t. So, how do you create those flash floods that make millions?If you want millions, you don’t want it to rain, you want it to pour. You also will need the right tools. You see, most people who jump into a home based business opportunity, and do so because of the get rich quick aspect.We have all seen it. The large figures nicely presented. And now a slogan that says that today is the luckiest day of your life – because in 6 months, you will have a bank account that will beat the treasury, and will own your own private island with you lying in a hammock!The truth is that this is unlikely the case. Even though the millionaire aspect happens, and it happens everyday, it usually happens to a different type of people. You see, making a million dollars in a home based business, is fully possible.We need to look at these people who do make the big money. You see, we all have the potential, but the only difference is priorities. For example, the people who want the money will make money the priority, while the people making the money will actually have a different priority.And these different priorities become important, especially if you do want to achieve those millions in a home based business. You see those who make money, usually have a different purpose. They may want to help people, and serve them better.These people may also want to leave a positive impact on the world. These are bigger motivators than money. Money doesn’t provide long term motivation, and here is where many people will fail in a home based business, and how you can use this information to create massive success for you and your loved ones.Think about your priorities, what are they? Are you trying to benefit your own pocket or create a benefit that benefits everyone? Are you interested in getting the money or having a client, prospect or customer get the best deal?It may seem like small advice, and a lot of customer service, however, this is the only way people have made big money in a home business or any other kind of business and venture. You see, when you can provide service, and value, you will ultimately be in a position to earn money.
In “Make money in a home business, what to consider before you invest” which was my last article, I went through many aspects to consider before you make your final decision to buy into a home business opportunity. Now, you have made the decision and found the program for you and you want to know where to start. The best advice I can give you is to just get started. Start today with income producing activities. Don’t put it off until tomorrow, or until you know more about your business, or until your sponsor helps, or until, or until, or until. Because there can always be another until, so let’s just get started.Something you’ll want to consider before you begin your marketing campaign is this: Who are you gong after? I’ve known many marketers who just start marketing without any concern about who they are marketing to, who they are actually looking for. If you feel that your offer or opportunity is really tremendous for stay at home moms, you probably don’t want to market in sports related magazines. Who is your target market?One key to being successful is to understand all of the many ways you have to market your opportunity. One of the first questions to ask yourself is: which do you have more of, time or money? If you have a lot of time and very little money for your marketing efforts then you want to evaluate the no cost or low cost alternatives and work with those. If you have some money to allocate to marketing and perhaps you’re already working full time so you have very little time, then you’ll want to find some cost effective methods of marketing which will not take much time to implement.Personal Contact Marketing is one of the lowest cost methods available. You simply listen to what the people around you are saying. When you hear people saying they are upset about their commute, time away from family, being unappreciated or anything job related, simply hand them a business card, tell them you think you can help them out, and ask them to give you a call or direct them to your website. Walk away, and wait for a response. Don’t chase them, see what they do. The next time you run into them remind them that you have not heard from them and find out if they still have your card. If they do, wait to hear from them, they may have been unusually busy and not had time to contact you. If they don’t have your card, ask them if they are seriously considering doing something or just being polite. This gives them an out if they want it.Free internet advertising is also very effective. There are two dozen or more free classified sites on the web, simply Google it and you’ll find most of them. Be certain to follow the site’s guidelines, if you choose to abuse any of the sites you run the risk of being bounced from the site forever, no need to do that.Writing and submitting articles to sites such as EzineArticles.com is another free way to market your opportunity. It will give you good exposure and people will recognize you from your articles. Its an income producing activity that will take time to pay dividends however eventually it will pay.Flyers, which are actually business cards, are another means of marketing. You’ll want to have some simple eye catching phrase on the card as well as contact information: an example might read; This card could be worth $100,000 in the next 12 months, for more information call 1 800 123 4567. You’ll want to find a busy parking lot like a mall or a large office complex where you can put out 500 to 1,000 cards at a time. Stick the cards on the driver side door between the window and rubber just above the door handle where it will be seen as the driver gets in the car. You’ll want to have an 800 service with a recorded message to capture contact information, and so that the card can’t be traced directly back to you. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for security, some guards take canvassing very seriously. You’ll get a 1 to 2% response, so put out plenty of cards. The best times to consider putting out flyers is around busy holidays at the malls and on Friday afternoons or on the Tuesday following a Monday holiday at the office complexes.Next are what are referred to as “Bandit” signs. These are the plastic corrugated signs on metal H stands, you may have seen a “For Rent” or “Open House” sign like these. These can be a lot of fun to place and you can very easily get a huge response. The thing to remember is that you’ll want to find a thoroughfare which is very busy and an intersection which has a lengthy backup. This gives people more of an opportunity to see the sign and write down the website or phone number listed. You can find these for less than $2.00 each and in the right spot can give you a tremendous response.Newspapers is a great way to reach a lot of people with a little money. You don’t need to go to a huge market to get a reasonable result, you’ll want to stick with the papers which have a lower circulation and find an area where you feel comfortable marketing. Remember what I said earlier, who are your prospects? Go after those people, don’t just randomly select a newspaper based on low cost advertising. Better to spend no money and wait than to keep spending little bits and pieces of money in the wrong places.Magazines are even more effective than newspapers, although there is a longer lag time. If you call a newspaper to place a classified ad, chances are you can get one in within three days. If you call a magazine its generally 30 to 45 days, big difference if you are in a hurry to get started. At the other en of the spectrum is the fact that magazines have a much longer “shelf life” than newspapers. Its not unheard of for someone to pick up a magazine in a doctor’s or dentist’s office that is six months old and call you up about your opportunity.It does not matter which home business opportunity you are marketing, eventually you will want to have a website. You can design your own site through GoDaddy or other similar sites or you can have it designed by a professional. Again if you have time you might want to design your own site, the folks at GoDaddy are very helpful and its easier than you might think. If you don’t believe your up for the challenge or you think you want a more professional looking site then find a professional who is familiar with your opportunity.You might want to start a Pay Per Click marketing campaign on the internet. You’ll want to do your research before you begin. I’ve heard of people investing as little as $20.00 per day and only running their campaign for six or eight hours on specific days and I’ve also heard of people who have put $500.00 into a campaign only to see it gone in less than three days with little or no results. Do your homework before you start this one.Before you start any of these marketing campaigns consider your budget and your time. Also, think about how to approach your marketing as a “campaign”. You’ll want to have two or three different activities going all of the time. Don’t put all of your marketing time or dollars into one basket.Thanks Much, and until next time, MAKE EVERY DAY A PROSPEROUS DAY!
There are opportunities to suit everyone when it comes to creating home income streams. The very fact that you wish to create an income from home for yourself suggests that you already have a broad vision of how you would like to earn money. Your biggest challenge now is to find something that suits you down to the ground… and of course avoid the masses of information regarding earning from home.Here are some simple criteria put in places to analyze a potential home income stream:1) The income stream should be easy to understand and should be available to set-up from home. Once set-up, there should be relatively little maintenance required- the money should start coming in almost on auto pilot. With some (still promising) home income streams this is not always possible but it’s a real plus when you set something up then sit back and watch it earn cash for you day in, day out.2) There should be a very good future for the potential home income stream – is it in a thriving industry? Is it an in demand niche? You do not want to pour your efforts into something that ultimately, will not sell or create an income for you. Research is very important here and must be done before you get your feet wet.3) Preferably, the home income opportunity should be something that is not so over-Exposed that everyone has heard of it (and is trying). The lesser known opportunities Are often goldmines of income, but that’s not to say the more popular and known Methods cannot be used as well.4) The start-up and maintenance costs should be as close to zero as possible. It should not cost you a fortune to start up and operate the home business. Pick up a business opportunity paper such as “Daltons” and you will discover no end of franchise and business opportunities – I’m sure a lot of them are genuine but many cost several thousand dollars and more just to start up. The beauty of the internet is that you can set-up and operate a business from home at a tiny fraction of that.5) The opportunity must be fully operable from home. No need to get hold of special grounds, an office e.t.c.6) The income opportunity must be GLOBAL – you should be able to operate the business no matter where in the world you are.However, when you find a genuine home income opportunity that satisfies these criteria you may want to jump on it faster than a flea on a wet dog.
Home assembly jobs have practically all kinds of home accessory products that you can think of. Thus, a worker, once he has gotten himself working on a particular product, can always decide on another one if he desires to do so, so long as he first finishes his or her assignment with another company. But it is always recommended that before you go into a certain company with its own kind of product, always think about what you would prefer to work on. This will preclude you from having to change from one company to another just because the kinds of product you are working on do not suit your taste.You see, it is never good to hop from one company to another for the simple reason that you do not like working on a particular product and you will try another one because it might be the kind of work suited to your taste. Home assembly jobs companies do not look kindly to individuals who hop from one company to another. Before you select what kind of home assembly jobs you will work on, you have to think first if you will be interested and happy in the kind of work that you will select.Your interest in the kind of work you do is important because it will make you more focused in your work and because you are happy doing such kind of works, naturally, it will show on the quality of your assembled product. A worker who is interested in his chosen home assembly jobs will surely produce a better kind of work compared to a person without any interest in his work. You yourself will of course know what interest you most.Here is a tip in how to find out if what will interest you most before you choose the home assembly jobs that you will work on. Let us say electronics, jewelry and wood craft are the three items that seemed to interest you, but you are not still sure if what among these three products you would like to work on. To determine what would interest you most, log on or surf the internet sites of the three companies and browse the products that they are offering for work at home people.Here, you will be able to take a good look at what you will be doing in case you decide on a company or a product. Home assembly jobs that these companies will be offering are posted prominently on their sites some even with a slide show of the home assembly jobs that recruits will be assigned to work on.An electronic company site can have a presentation about their Printed Circuit Board assembly, where you can see an actual demo on how easy it is to assemble resistors, transistors and capacitors to the board. There is also a short demo on how to use the electronic soldering gun and how to solder. You can also visit the site of a jewelry company and view their home assembly jobs section where you can see how easy it is for home workers in stringing together jewelry stones and beads. The same is true for wood craft company sites where you may also be able see sample videos of their home assembly jobs. You can now decide on what product you will choose to assemble. Will it be electronics, jewelry or wood craft? Of course, the choice is yours!
Generally, the term Infopreneur can refer to any entrepreneur who earns money by selling information. And now it usually refers to someone who sells that information via the internet.Infopreneuring did not start with the internet boom, as early Infopreneurs were able to sell information via such “old school” methods as audio tapes or CDs, video tapes (yes I know, how quaint), printed booklets and manuals and in-person live events.Today, this field has never had more potential, because you can inexpensively reach a nationwide, and in many cases, worldwide audience with your information. Plus, the ways that you can distribute information are usually very innovative and inexpensive, since you can take advantage of all the delivery mechanisms the internet has to offer information electronically and virtually, in addition to “classic” offline delivery methods.Many people mistakenly think that being an infopreneur means you just sell e-books. Many people start this way, and it was how I started, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. You can take advantage of all the delivery mechanisms the internet has to offer information electronically and virtually, in addition to “classic” offline delivery mechanisms.For example, an Info Product can be a special report e-book, transcript, audio or video podcast, a teleseminar or webinar, or a subscription service. And that’s just to name a few. Information Services or “Info Services” as I like to call them, are a VERY lucrative aspect of Infopreneuring. They can be coaching, consulting, training, or literally doing what you know for others, based on your areas of expertise.If your information is perceived as having value by consumers and businesses, the ways that it can be delivered online and offline are pretty much limited only by your imagination.So why do I believe infopreneuring is the ultimate home based business? Easy! It allows me to make money:
From what I know
From my home office or wherever I want to be
While I am doing whatever I want to do
In a way that no one can ever take away from me–no layoffs, reductions in force, furloughs or downsizing–EVER!
