Home Based Business-Niche Business

Home Based Businesses may be just the ticket for those that are tired of the daily commute to an office, stay at home parents (notice I didn’t say Mom’s), and retired individuals. Statistics show over the last 10 years more and more people have chosen to start a business from their home.  In 2011, over 19 million Americans worked at home, an increase from 16.5 million in 2008, and over 12% of the households in the country currently operate a home-based business.

There are many types of businesses that can be run right out of the comfort of your home.  You can provide a service such as a plumbing business, sell products online, or do consulting right out of your home. eBay is a great way for someone wishing to work from home to start a home based business. Look around your house and see what you don’t need and sell it on eBay. Once you learn the in’s and out’s expand to locating a profitable product you would like to sell and start selling it.

Another great home business is working as an affiliate marketer for companies. Refer people to another businesses online store, recommend someone else’s product to a friend or family member, or set up a review site for a particular product and steer customers to that product. When the customer purchases the products you referred from your site or by word of mouth you get paid. You don’t work for the company, you are like their personal marketing departing. Check out more on Affiliate Marketing in the “Affiliate Marketing” category on this site.

I know of people that work from home and love it.  No overhead involved with a brick-and-mortar store, no cost for a babysitter, and the convenience of working the hours they need to manage home-life and work life. No worries of lay-offs. It’s a win-win situation for most.

If you have the desire and motivation to start a business where you can work directly out of your home then go for it. I recommend it to anyone wishing to be their own boss, work the hours they desire, make a lucrative income, and have control over how the business is managed.

Make sure you review all information you can find on starting a home based business before you decide to do it.  But DO IT!
