Home Working Home Working - probably the largest choice of Home Working in the UK!
Home working has many advantages; low overheads, no morning and evening traffic jams to sit in, an ability to choose your own working hours, etc; but there are downsides too. It can take a great deal of self control and determination to work unsupervised for long periods on jobs which can be sometimes boring and repetitive. Working from home may be an excellent way of getting the budget to balance but sometimes it can be a lonely life, with none of the social interaction that can be a vital part of work in an office or factory, and earnings can sometimes be uncertain or sporadic. Despite these drawbacks many people find that they can earn very satisfactory incomes indeed, whilst enjoying a much greater level of freedom than their computing counterparts. Indeed, thanks to the Internet and powerful home computers, it is becoming increasingly common for people whose jobs would normally require them to work in an office to be able to function just as efficiently from home, particularly amongst people in the recognised professions.
Just what sort of work is available for the budding home worker? We have already mentioned the Internet and apart from those who undertake their normal professional work from home rather than from a centralised office there are millions of people worldwide who earn incomes ranging from tiny to astronomical sums selling goods or services online. These could be goods either produced by the homeworker personally, or which have been purchased with the intention of selling them on at a profit. Variations of this include affiliate marketing, in which the seller sets up websites and places advertisements on these websites for goods and services which are provided by other companies, who usually provide marketing support and regular payments of sales commissions; products like Google Adwords, where you get paid a certain sum for everyone who clicks upon an ad on your website, or a process called dropshipping in which you take orders and payment for products which are then delivered direct to the purchaser by a manufacturer or main supplier (the benefit of dropshipping is that a substantial income can be earned without the necessity of buying, storing and delivering stock yourself). if you decide to go down this route it will be necessary to attract surfers to your website and in order to do this you will have two either learn the essentials of search engine optimisation or buy visitors from the main search engines which are Google, Yahoo and MSN. There are many online tutorials which can give you advice on how to do either of these.
If your ambitions are a little lower down the scale than this, you can even make money online by something as simple as filling in survey forms online; surprisingly good money can be made at this and quite a lot of people do it as a full time occupation.
It is possible to do simple product assembly, or stuff envelopes at home, against the promise of reasonable earnings but beware! There are many con merchants about who are more than willing to defraud those who can least afford to lose money, and if any company which offers home working asks for payment from you for stock or 'management fees' you would be well advised to walk away in most cases, and if an offer sounds too good to be true then it probably is!
Generally speaking, doing fairly simple work from home for an employer can be worthwhile provided that you recognize the fact that you have to find the right employer! If you decide to run a business from home then you have the possibility of making substantial earnings but the normal rules of business apply; make sure that the products or services that you promote are in sectors that you understand thoroughly, be clear in your own mind just how you are going to market these, and ensure that you have sufficient capital available to cover your expenses until such a time as you begin to show an adequate profit. If you intend to sell products over the Internet you are far better picking a niche market in which the smaller number of potential customers will be outweighed by the lack of large numbers of competitors, rather than tackle products like insurance, finance, gambling etc which are grossly overcrowded markets.
