Seeking an idea for a Home-Based Family Business?
One of my dreams was to have a home business that all the family could get involved in, but was it an unrealistic idea?
When I first started out with the idea of a family home based business I was kind of thinking along the lines of an Ebay shop where we could sell things like Lego minifigures.
I toyed with this idea for a while and decided it wasn’t really practical as a business, maybe OK as a hobby but that wasn’t what we wanted. Neither was a website to sell home-made jams locally!
What am I looking for in a home-based business?
I had to decide on some criteria. I wanted to work from home more, I wanted to put my computer skills to better use, and I wanted to do something that all of us as a family could get involved with in some way or other.
I didn’t mind some investment but at the same time I didn’t want to take a chance spending lots of money to get started on something new.
And of course I wanted it to make money. And there comes the problem trying to research online businesses, you tend to find all the crazy get-rich-quick schemes out there at the top of the Google search list.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
I had heard of Affiliate Marketing, a friend of ours had set up her own site with recipes and home ideas, and was making a little money each week by linking her site into Amazon. If a visitor clicked a link and bought something from Amazon she would get a percentage of the sale.
It was only after I signed up to Wealthy Affiliate that I realized the scope of this kind of business. There are hundreds of millions of people shopping online.
Did you know that in the run up to Christmas 2013, Amazon were selling 426 items per second! That’s hundreds of millions of dollars a day. And with the Amazon Affiliate program you can get a piece of the profits, and that’s just one of thousands of affiliate programs out there.
