You are Here: Free Internet Marketing Newsletter > Back Issues > Quick start to earning from home - November 16, 2006

Hi,

Moms constantly ask me how they can start earning a steady income from home relatively quickly. The inevitable answer is try providing a service that is in demand.

Recently, one of our Mom Masterminds members told us she has been working her candle business for over a year with little return and 2 days after starting her V.A. (virtual assistant) business, she was profitable.

Not surprising at all. She had some connections and was able to find business owners that needed her help. She fulfilled a need and was paid for her time.

If you are still struggling with the online business thing and need to put food on the table or have extra funds to invest in your business, you can offer a service too. Or if you know another mom in this situation, that's what you can suggest she do to.

Internet Based Moms has plenty of service business ideas that we've posted at:
http://www.internetbasedmoms.com/services.html

There are nearly 100 ideas there. You can click on several of them for more information as well.

Some of the more popular, and in demand ideas, are:

-> Virtual Assistant
-> Medical Transcriptionist
-> Web Design

...and a hot one for the upcoming holidays

-> Personalized Santa Letters (but remember, it's seasonal)

If you are going to start a service-based business and want to get it going right away, I'd recommend the following:

1. Choose something where you likely have access to a client base.

For example, if you want to be a VA and already have a bunch of Internet business owners, you might have a pool of interested people. That doesn't mean you can't start from scratch in something that interests you, but realize it might take longer to get it up and running.

2. Set up a website right away.

Even if it is a basic website that tells people why they need your service and a way to contact you, get that up right away. As a home business owner, you need to have an office where people can visit you. Your website is your office. You can tweak and improve it later.

3. Ask people for referrals.

If you know somebody might be in touch with your ideal client base, ask for referrals. Also, ask the clients you acquire for referrals. Satisfied clients are an amazing source of new clientele.

4. Do a great job, but don't overload yourself.

Remember, you are getting paid for the time you work with your clients, but a business has other obligations as well. You need to schedule time (or hire someone) for administrative tasks, marketing, etc.

Those are just a few things to get you started. Remember, if you need a hand or have questions, you can always drop by the forum at http://www.InternetBasedMoms.com/bb.

The only thing to consider now is that if you start a service-based business, you've set yourself up with a JOB that you do from home. You don't want to have a job forever, so next week I'll be back with tips to turn your home job into a full-fledged business.


All the best,
