Top 10 Work From Home Job Opportunities

If you’re looking to start working from home, there are a myriad of home business opportunities available, and it can be difficult to choose the best one for you. In order to get you started, here is a list of our suggested Top 10 Work From Home Job Opportunities.

* Affiliate Marketing – One of the easiest ways to make money from home is through affiliate marketing. Basically, this involves marketing other companies products, usually on the internet, in return for a share of the sale. This can be particularly lucrative as commissions are sometimes as high as 75%, and as an affiliate you have no responsibility for shipping and customer support. Affiliate programmes are sometimes run by the vendor themselves, or often through a affiliate broker such as ClickBank or Commission Junction. These will provide you with a personal link to the products you want to promote, and you can then promote that link in whatever way you choose. There’s a myriad of training materials for affiliate marketing available, so it’s easy to get started.

* Multi-Level Marketing – Multi-level marketing programmes are businesses that recruit affiliates for two purposes – to sell their product and also to recruit more affiliates. Typically, the affiliates then earn commission on any products they sell and on any products the affiliates they recruited sell, and also from any affiliates those affiliates recruited down to a level set by the company (5 levels is common). These programs can have a huge earning potential as you’re earning money for work done by your affiliates. However, whilst there are a lot of good programmes there are also a few dodgy ones. A MLM program should focus both on selling products and recruiting affiliates – if it focuses on just recruitment, alarm bells should ring!

* eBay Business – eBay is a global marketplace and there are huge opportunities for entrepreneurs to use eBay to run businesses from home. You can find products to sell using wholesalers, or even easier drop-ship suppliers who will handle shipping for you, and then sell them through eBay. Your reduced running costs should enable you to compete effectively with larger suppliers and eBay will help you reach a massive marketplace easily.

* Consultancy – If you’ve got some skills from a previous job, you may find that you can sell them to make money from home on a freelance basis. Often, your old employer (or their competitors!) could be a good client to start with. The internet is coming to the aid of freelance consultants as there are many directories putting consultants in touch with potential employers worldwide – these are particularly good for IT and marketing work, but other directories are developing that could help you to find work.

* Blogging – If you have a passion then why not start a blog and encourage other people with the same interests to follow your blog? You can make money from it in a number of ways such as adding advertising, which is easy with programs such as Google AdSense, or including affiliate links to products that your readers may be interested in.

* Freelance Writing – If you can write well, then you can find people to pay you to do it! For example, many internet marketers are on the lookout for people to write articles to help them promote their products. Use the many online freelancer sites to find work as a writer. Guides are also available on approaching publishers if you want to write for print media.

* Survey taking – It’s unlikely to make you rich, but a decent amount of extra income can be made taking surveys on the internet. Many guides are available online to help you find the surveys that are paying money.

* Home call centre – The improvements in internet telephony has lead to a new phenomenon where call centre companies can redirect calls to operators working from their own home. Shift hours can often be very flexible and fit in around your own schedule so this can be perfect for someone looking to earn some money from home, but they’re very popular so you may have to work hard to get accepted!

* Home Staging – If you’re creative, why not start a business offering home staging services? Real estate companies want to make sales quickly and at the best price and so they’ll be happy to employ you to make their houses look the best they can in order to improve their chances of a sale.

* Party Selling – Once the preserve of plastic storage box sellers, party selling is becoming trendy again with products offered from food and drink to sex toys and lingerie! If you fancy the idea of hosting parties in your home and making some money out of it, this could be a good way to go.
