How To Make Money At Home

Feb 5, 2008
When you start looking for opportunities to make money at home, be aware that scams are out there. Some are simple to see, others not so easy. Be sure there is a tangible product associated with the opportunity. Some programs I have seen claim the opportunity itself is the product. This is a sure sign of a scam. Run away fast!

Online opportunities have simplified the opportunity to make money at home. A couple basic components and you are on your way! You need a product or service to sell, people who need that product/service, a way to sell the product/service and a way to deliver it painlessly and fast.

An original product of your own design and making is the best option. A direct sale of an original product/service brings ALL the cash received to you directly.

If you sell a product developed by someone else, a commission will be your reward. Commissions can be as much as 75%. This is what is known as affiliate marketing and is one of the quickest ways to make money at home.

Whether you go with direct sales or affiliate marketing, you need to find people who want what you have to offer. This is called your "market" and can be identified with a little research. Finding people who want your product is called building a list. A list that is well researched can be extremely profitable.

Good customer rapport (or getting to know your customers) is also essential. This is known as preselling. This helps you gain credibility with your customers. Once they have successfully purchased from you, they will probably come back over and over again because they know you can be trusted.

Now that customers are coming to you, you need a simple way for them to purchase your product. A web site, a great sales letter, and an email auto responder are needed. The sales letter will convince your visitors that they need your product. This is where interest, buzz and momentum are created. The result should be the customer hitting the "BUY" button. An auto responder is required to manage the email you will receive. There will be a lot of them, rest assured. Staying in contact with present customers is very important. An auto responder will help with this as well as nurture new prospects.

A global presence and a delivery medium are provided by having a web site. Electronic products can be downloaded instantly or shipping info is gathered for sending out physical products like CD's or paper documents. The web site also makes you simple to find again.

It is easy to make money at home with these basics. Follow them and your life can change with the click of a mouse.
