Making a Good Income From Home – Is It Possible?

Is it possible to make a good income from home? Is it even possible to make a better income from home than you would in a high profile corporate job?

Let’s explore the possibilities:

Tutoring online

If you have a teaching background, you can always tutor online. Mathematics and English are two subjects that are in high demand. You can create your own tutoring website, or you can join one of the many tutoring websites that are available online. These exist to help put you and students seeking tutors together.

Selling stuff

You can find a good dropship wholesale website. This means that a company offers you products at wholesale prices which you can then sell at retail. When you make a sale charging retail prices, the company then ships the product for you without showing the price they paid. They just include a packing slip and you invoice the customer yourself.

Being an affiliate for another business is also possible. You find a big online business like Amazon or Clickbank, build a website featuring their products or reviews of their products, and when you make a sale, you get paid a commission. This may be a good way of selling as you don’t have the hassle of invoicing and shipping as you never sell the product direct. You just lead the customer to the website.

Customer Service

Many people are looking for someone who can do their customer service for them. You will have an 0800 (or 1800) number directed to your phone, and you handle all the enquiries that come in for the business that hire you. This service is getting more and more popular as many small businesses outsource this.

Virtual Assistant

Many small business owners need their admin tasks taken off their hands in order to free them up for doing what they’re good at. Here you will be doing admin related tasks like answering the phone, typing, filing, sorting and book-keeping. Some Virtual Assistants can even create websites using the Microsoft Office Suite. This service is also getting more and more popular as it is a cost-effective way to have someone work for you, without any employment related hassles.

Network Marketing Home Business

Network Marketing or Multilevel Marketing (MLM) is another possible way to work from home. In fact, this is the only business where you don’t have to trade time for money. However, most people are wary of this as there are many scams around. However, there are many good companies out there that offer a legitimate way to build your own business.

My advice would be to find a company that you can join for free. These companies are the most successful as they don’t need your money. If you want to pay a joining fee and pay for a kit, you need to do your research to find a company with a product that you believe in and feel passionate about. You have the internet, and can do the research. Check the company’s reputation while you’re at it. It is best not to go for a new company as they have no track record yet.

It is entirely possible to replace your day job with a profitable home business. It is even possible to earn the same amount as a corporate level job would pay. You only need to do your due diligence in order to not get scammed.
