Work At Home – Free Programs

Millions of people are looking for ways to create additional income to help pay the bills. Others want to get rid of their day job and work from the comfort of home. There are hundreds of work at home programs to choose from. Some are free to join and others charge a minimal fee. If you do your research before jumping in it should be relatively easy to find a program that can work for you.

The major difference between paid work from home programs and free programs is the organized information you receive. If you are very familiar with the Internet and have a lot of time to spend researching programs and reading forums, then it is a bit more likely you can start you work at home endeavor for free.

If you are short on time more than money, it may be worth it to invest a few dollars in yourself to find out what you need to know. For example, minimal charge (normally less than $50.00) is well worth the money charged. Time is money. Here are a few things you get with the paid programs:

* Research programs
* Step-by-step guidance on how to perform the tasks required
* Advice on how to avoid the normal pitfalls of the market place
* Organized, understandable approach to working from home
* Customer support: that will respond timely when you ask questions or when you need help

The time you save will more than pay for the minimal expense of these programs by far. Having said that, here are a few of the reasons people wanted to start for free:

* No money to spend. Unable to pay their bills currently
* Have been scammed before
* New to work at home and would like to try something before spending any money
* Not sure if they had the necessary skill to do what was required

If you will do your research you will find many programs that are free to join. You can be successful going this route, but it will take more time. Many people have time, but no money so this could be a perfect fit for you. What do you have to lose? There are many programs on the Internet that offer some guidance, which is a big help when starting out. An organized approach will give you a much better chance for success. What you don’t want to do is to spend a lot of time and get nothing in return.

It is very important to find companies that match your income goals, skill sets and comfort level, because your chances of success increase when doing so. Many people will join 3 – 5 free programs then keep working the ones they like best. Others will work 2 – 3 on a continuing basis so that they can create multiple income streams.

One thing is for sure you can’t make any additional money working from home if you don’t try. Give yourself a chance.


The Proof of the Pudding is in the e-Mail

E-mails can be very intriguing. The first e-mail can make you extremely curious to know more, especially if it says briefly and succinctly something really tantalizing yet mysterious, such as an offer to ‘make you several thousand dollars in only two months’.

No doubt you will receive quite a few of these communications each and every week and you will either pursue this by responding to ask for more information directly or clicking a link to get more details – or you will say ‘no thanks, this isn’t something I would be interested in’.

On the one hand people may like emails that are long and give as many details (and selling points) as possible, but then on the other hand, when it is short and sweet it may prompt a reply just out of curiosity if nothing else. The next message you receive may invite you to a webinar or phone call, etc. that will explain more and further entice you.

One good question you should ask the sender in your initial reply, is ‘Have you made this money yourself?’ Which brings us onto the point of ‘where is the proof’? Although there are some amazing ideas, it is important to find out if it is just a theory or ‘pipe dream’ or if it is actually a reality. It really should be a rule that you make ideas work for you and then if they do work, you can then recommend them to others.

However, by extension if you are an affiliate and can’t honestly say you have already seen this idea in action/received the money, then you can still propose the idea to others if you are quoting and using documentation of the program’s owner’s proof of success. You should make the distinction clear if asked and if you are inexperienced or do not have a reputation yet, always use the documentation that is usually provided to you by the program.

Proof is an incredibly powerful marketing tool that simply must be included in order to succeed. Proof can be provided for example, by an honest testimonial or review. In the same sense presenting a problem and then offering a solution along with proof it works, is an excellent way to structure your e-mail marketing and advertising.

In that same vein, showing statistics from any studies or surveys that have been done and of course saying who/what/where it was done, is another powerful way to create trust in what you are claiming.

Yet another example would be to pose a series of questions and answers. Maybe you have made notes on the various reasons people believe they can’t do something – lack of experience, lack of time, money, etc. In this method you again show a solution or negate their concerns where people have fears that are preventing them from moving forward.


Starting A Home Based Business – When The Going Gets Tough!

Starting any business is rich with excitement and anxiety. This is especially true when stepping into a home based business. All the questions about doing everything right and if I’ll be successful are in every business owners mind when first starting up. The big difference between a home based business startup and a regular or more “formal” business startup is the comfort level in your own home can work against you actually getting anything done.

Going into a store or an office focuses attention on the things that need to be done that day. Many typically have those “to-do” lists that outline the goals and objectives of the day. In a home based business however, it’s easy to fall into the trap of not separating the business or work part of your life and the home and family part. The sofa or chair where you watch television is right in the other room, almost calling for you to take yet another break. Then there’s the refrigerator and snack cabinet.

Running a home based business, especially a startup, demands a certain discipline that works best if you compartmentalize your day. Work during times when you’ve decided to work and be “home” when you’ve decided to be home. If you set up a schedule that has you working in your home office from 8 am to noon, be at your desk working during those hours.

Don’t fall into the temptation to visit with the family or walk the dog during business or work time. Stay focused. One of the biggest problems with any home based business or working from home is having the flexibility to make changes in your work schedule. When first starting out in your own home business, stay as formal as possible. Keep business hours, or at least stay as close to the schedule you’ve set as possible. The reason for this is to set patterns in your own personal behavior that allow for the maximum potential for the business success.

Later, you can relax a bit and add a little flexibility to the schedule. The key to a successful business no matter if it’s a retail store, a technology related business, home based, office or is retail based, is always the same. WORK! Home based businesses don’t mean that there’s less work. It means the business can be operated out of your home. The WORK part still is critical to your success. We’re almost all seen how the corporate world wastes time in endless meetings. In a small business, we too can fall into patterns that keep us from doing the most important thing to assure success, and that’s work. In any home based business, stay focused, develop a schedule, and stay on track to a bright future in your own business!
