You are Here: Free Internet Marketing Newsletter > Back Issues > The answer is a definite yes! - February 19, 2007

Hi there,

We hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed your Valentine ’s Day last week.

Before we get into this weeks topic, we’ve just added a new eBook to Moms Talk Biz – How to Start a Virtual Assistant business from home. Virtual assistants are very in demand and this step by step guide gives you all the information you need to start making money as a virtual assistant. You can learn more at:

Now as promised last week, lets dive into our new segments “Can you really make money working from home?”

The answer is a definite yes. One thing we’ve noticed is a lot of people get started online and right away expect to start earning a large amount of money. Many of these people want to make passive income in a fairly short amount of time. The truth is no income is really passive. Sure you can set up your business and put steps into place where you can work very few hours for a good return, but the initial phase of setting up that business is still going to take a lot of time and effort.

The good news is there are a lot of ways to make money from home, even if it’s not completely passive income. A good way to get started is by offering a service. We both have offered services in our business strategy and can tell you it’s a good way to accomplish your goal of working from home. That doesn’t mean you can’t build up a little passive income as your long-term business goal or as a side strategy (it’s never a great idea to put all your eggs in one basket), but what it does mean is with very little startup costs you can use your skills to start bringing in money and have the option to stay home.

In some cases you may enjoy offering a service and can concentrate your efforts on building that service and hiring people to work for you and you take on a management role. In any case, offering a service is a great way to get started.

Here are some services you can consider depending on your skills:

Transcription - There’s a growing demand for transcriptionists online especially since the explosion of audio and video

Virtual Assistant – As more and more people work from home the demand for virtual staff continues to grow

Website design – Many small business owners want to get online but don’t know where to start

Writing services – The importance of quality content online continues to grow, ghost writing services are very in demand

SEO services – Many online business owners need more traffic to their websites and don’t know where to start

Those are just a few of the services you can offer right now to fill a large need. If you’re unsure of what services you can offer look at your skills… do you enjoy writing? Are you very organized and detailed? Are you a good typist? Do a little brain storming to decide what skills you can offer.

During the coming weeks, we’ll go into detail about the different services you can offer and provide you with resources to help you get started. In the meantime if you have any questions, please feel free to visit the forum and ask; we’re always happy to help.

You can also take a look at the growing collection of business idea guides over at Moms Talk Biz:

We’ll be back next week with information on how to start your own transcription service from home. If you’re already an established transcriptionist, we’ll give you a few insider tips on getting more clients.

Enjoy your week!
Alice Seba & Mila Sidman

Week in Review

If you never got invited to the Gmail party but wanted in, I have good news.... the party is now an open house. Google's email service, which used to restrict new users to those who were "invited" by an existing user, is now available to everyone.
