When thinking of working from home you need to watch out for the scams out there. People want you to fill in surveys each day, or put things in envelopes, or even more mundane than that (there are worse things to be doing at home. . . . )
But you're worth more than that aren't you ?
So what can do undertake at home ? Well as you are reading this, then you are already online and if you are reading then you know a bit about article sites perhaps ?
Can you type? Can you write, well write about things you are passionate about ?
I say this because many online ventures start off with articles. This means people writing about subjects like I am here to draw the reader in, provide some excellent information and then send them onto somewhere else.
Does that sound like something you can do ? Well if you can write about a subject you like and can write a 500 word article maybe once per week then you can start to be an internet marketer ! How about that. You don't even need your own product. You can start promoting other peoples products. How do you start ? Well search online for “internet business plan" and search through the results. You'll find some plans that are excellent and will show you how to start.
So an internet career is certainly one you can undertake. It's actually best if you are a one person outfit because you can concentrate on the task at hand. Additionally there are loads of support forums with people like you who are starting off in their internet career.
It's best to start with article marketing because a) you don't need a product, b) you don't really need to spend much money on advertising such as google adwords and c) it will give you an excellent grounding in how to promote products and then maybe in the future you can start to develop your own ecommerce business or selling ebooks perhaps ?
So where do you start? Well, if you found the internet business plan I was discussing a good way to begin is to go to a site called clickbank - This is an affiliate site where thousands of people sell and promote products. Have a look through. The most popular products are being promoted by a lot of people so you will find it hard to compete - so have a look through some of the other products and see if there is something that you know something about so you can write about.
Remember that the best ways of promotion is if you compete in a niche - but not a big niche, a niche within something you have found. Don't start on internet marketing products either. Most people who have no experience try and sell other internet marketers other IM products. It's not going to wash well. So if you have a passion for animals, then promote animal related items. If you have a passion for health , then promote heath products. . . well you get the picture.
