The Benefits Of Owning A Home Based Business

Benefits of owning a home-based business

This is the age of high tech. Most persons are using technology in their daily lives.

People are doing more business on the internet than ever before. And because of this brick and mortar business seems to be on the decline and     Home-based businesses are quickly becoming the fastest growing form of business.

This trend can be seen especially in the closing of malls, and business is having their work carried out remotely by using the internet.

This trend saves the company from renting or buying office and warehouse space.

The good thing about this trend is anyone can have a home base business, Although working at home requires self-discipline, the benefits can be substantial.

Benefits of owning a home base business

  • You will spend more time accomplishing your tasks, than always get stuck in traffic on the drive to work. The wasted time spent on commuting to work will be better used in meeting your goals.
  • You will be compensated for the time you actually work. You will make more money the harder you work.you will also save on gas and food.
  • Anyone can start and own a successful online home base business, as long as you have that desire and determination and a strong passion to succeed. Of course, you will need to be disciplined and have good time management.

The flexibility of Working Hours

  • Being able to set your working hours is a plus, some of us work better at nights when the family is asleep. Some works very early in the morning before the business of the day begins. You can work in the allotted time, you can set whether is 3 hours twice a day or whatever suits you.

Overhead cost

  • There is almost no overhead cost when working from a home-based business as you are not renting office space or phones or paying for office utilities.
  • There are also savings from not commuting to work The zero commute also saves money on gas and wear and tear on your car.

How to start your home-based business

  • Come up with a business idea, to do this focus on identifying those skills that are good at. Your previous professional experiences should give you an idea. Think of instances or trends where you were able to provide value.

Test your idea


  • It would be a good idea before you go full in your business to give it a test first, to see if it has the potential to work.
  •  It may seem good on paper on in your mind but you need to know for sure e that you have something that works.
  • Another thing  I would suggest is to not give up your job right away, keep working even if it’s part-time, any business takes time to build and grow and until it starts making money, you are going to need some cash to meet your daily expense.

Decide On your niche

  • Once you have decided what your business will be, the next step is to identify your target market.
  • Identifying a particular group or segment of the population that is most likely to buy your product or service will be your target market. It would be good to identify this group early in setting up your business as you will have an idea if it would be feasible to do so that if there will be a demand for your product or service.

Know your competitors

  •  Most business has a direct competitor. As an entrepreneur, you need to know the companies operating in the same market so you can differentiate your business from theirs.
  • Maybe you can offer additional discounts, giveaways, or special offers in order to make your product or service stand out.

Set up your budget

  • It is good to have a budget so you know where every cent is going, you will need to budget for things like advertising, giveaways, whether it is e-books, discounted items or gifts,

Chose your office space

  • Depending on your business you may need specialize equipment if you are going into the area of podcast, webinars, training or things of that nature.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make money online. 

 According to webopedia

Internet marketing, or online marketing, refers to the use of the web and email  to advertise and market and to drive direct sales via electronic commerce,

In addition to sales leads from websites or emails. Internet marketing and online advertising efforts are typically used in conjunction with traditional types of advertising such as radio, television, newspapers, and magazines

You may be thinking you have no skills or technical knowledge or no special knowledge about anything. I must admit that was my concern too.

As a retired boomer with very little knowledge or skills in dealing with computers, I was very skeptical that I could ever accomplish the task of online marketing.

Is your retired income inadequate?

The retirement income for most of us reveals that many people are living on relatively little — and due to the high cost of living their incomes are shrinking over time, too. Fortunately, there is an action that can be taken to elevate this situation. You can start your own business.

Living beyond your income cannot continue for very long without getting into trouble, you will end up borrowing or using credit cards with very high-interest rates.

I know from experience having to cut back drastically on your spending, having to do without things that you have become accustomed to having is hard.

How To Overcome Financial Stress (Prepare For Retirement)

How to overcome financial stress.

Retirement should be an exciting time in your life, but the fact is it can also be a financially draining time in our lives, especially when it comes to the cost of healthcare.

It is a known fact the older we get the greater the possibility that we will become sick with some health issues that can be horrific both in health and cost

It would be a good idea, therefore, to start saving towards these unknown expenses earlier on in life, but unfortunately this is not done for different reasons, either we are living from paycheck to paycheck and cannot afford to save anything or there are other things going on in the family that takes first priority and so saving never gets done.

Retirement Crisis

Are you in retirement crisis? Are you ready to retire but find yourself woefully short in savings and income to live a comfortable lifestyle for the rest of your life?

Not only do boomers in today’s world  have to think about their own retirement plans,

But in most cases, they also have to care for their elderly parents which can have added emotional cost and financial cost adding to their crisis situation.

This is why  boomers not only  need to make plans for their parents, but  they

will also need to figure out who will be taking care of them as they get older.

This might involve figuring out plans with their children, or saving enough money for medical bills or even a nurse or having a plan B.

Older boomers are now in their early 70s today, and for a lot, current health issues are a big problem, dealing with them and the medical expenses are also adding to their problems.

Some older boomers are staying in the workforce as long as possible working around the problem of not having enough savings by staying employed into their mid to late 70s at least in part-time positions.

But working longer is not a realistic option for everyone especially if it is a physically demanding job, and learning a new skill could be a difficult challenge.

For those who find themselves in this situation and those who are looking for a plan B, I would like it to introduce to you a work from home solution. Affiliate Marketing.

I am one of those older boomers, in my early 70s I was forced to retire 4 years ago due to injury.

I looked for a way to increase my income, was scammed more times than I care to mention

then I finally found affiliate marketing through the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

What Is Affiliate Marketing 

Affiliate Marketing is the process of receiving a commission by promoting merchants like Amazon Walmart etc. products.

I have found that this is one of the best ways to earn money online. This marketing is based on your performance, which means you only get paid when your promotional efforts actually result in a sale.

Affiliate marketing gives the opportunity to effectively sell stock without having any cost or responsibility of manufacturing, buying or storing or handling returns. This is no HASSLE business.

This is perfect for anyone, who may be new to online marketing, or  have a small budget, or those people who don’t have their own products

People like retirees, stay at home parent, or anyone who needs to earn extra cash to supplement their income.

However, affiliate marketing is not only the way to earn money online but it is one of the best ways. By having a good affiliate program, you will be able to make a livable income which can become a passive income as some of your commission will be residual.

Wealthy Affiliate 

I am recommending Wealthy Affiliate to you this platform is the best for starting your online business and you can become a member for free.

I was a bit clueless when it came to not only online marketing but to all the technical functions that are needed to build and maintain a website.

But with the easy to understand instructions videos and the community of eager to help members I have 2 websites up and running.

Wealthy Affiliate is designed for every level of online marketers whether you are new and have no former knowledge, or have a little knowledge of online marketing or you are a super affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate has been around for 14 years with a membership of over 1,400,000 from 193 countries,

At Wealthy Affiliate everything that is needed for you to be successful is available to you there is no need to purchase anything outside the platform.

You will be able to build a beautiful revenue ready WordPress website in 30 seconds complete with   State of the art, ultra powerful and secure hosting will allow you to grow your business.

To be a successful online marketer you will need to have an audience to visit your website where you will have links to your merchant website which will enable members of your audience to make purchases

At Wealthy Affiliate, you will learn all about the most current traffic techniques and how you can get the relevant customers to your website.

As I stated before you can become a free member and a free membership never expires, with a free membership you will be the basic information.can you build a successful business with a free membership? I think you could if you have experience

But for someone who is completely new to online marketing, I would suggest you upgrade to a premium membership.

I became a free member and after a couple of months I upgraded to premium, you could become a free member build your website, write and publish your first post, see if you like it and if it not what you want you can quit and you would have lost nothing.

By the way, your free membership would be still there so if you have a change of heart you can take up where you left off.

several billing plans


In Conclusion

It doesn’t matter who you are It would be wise to take action now to supplement your income now and not wait until a crisis develops, I am so sorry I did not find Wealthy Affiliate until 2018.

I am not telling you that affiliate marketing is a walk over it is not It takes a lot of time and effort as someone said Success is no accident, it is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all a love for what you are doing.

You need to prepare yourself that you are working towards a long term goal and not just for quick, easy money.

The time aspect is the most difficult as an affiliate. Many people expect too much too fast and get disappointed.

Remember you can join for free there are other companies charging you to join and you would still have to go elsewhere to purchase web hosting.
