Once upon a time in a world far far away there existed a planet that had no internet. Oh wait, that was our planet 20 to 25 years ago. Back then there was no eBay to sell all our crap that has piled up in our garages and attics. No my friend it was a different world back then. back then there was not so many options for creating wealth from home as there is today.
For one thing, many people now a days earn a very comfortable living selling stuff on eBay that they have acquired. Believe it or not stuff in peoples attics and garages and from the deepest bowels of ones closets are probably going to sell on the internet. Some people have a knack for finding these kinds of items in a steady flow and selling them for a profit.
Yes technology has came a long way. People from home can do also sorts of stuff they probably could not have done easily if at all back pre-internet days. For example, trading the forex or stocks and options can easily be done today from the comfort of ones home on the computer. Average people can set up websites that have merchant accounts and accept credit card payments for just about anything and everything they want to sell.
If you are just new to the idea of creating wealth from home with an online business run strictly from your home, you need to realize going in though there are rules to online business. One particular rule that you need to know all about going in has to do with advertising. You may have thought by the assorted variety of biz opp emails you receive everyday that email advertising must be a booming business. It is, but do it wrong and you can suffer severely. Some people have even gone to jail for sending un-solicited email. Now unless you just got shipped in from the outback and have verily learned english, then you are familiar with the term “spam”. The internet meaning of the word spam is sending un-solicited emails.
At least that is what spam originally was. Well actually no, the original spam was and is a luncheon meat that has all sorts of goodies in it for flavorful consumption. But computer spam has taken on many meanings when it comes to advertising. For example, if you are on Facebook and you contact a bunch of people to be your friend and they agree and then every 10 minutes you post something on your “wall” that is of a selling nature. That advertisement is going to end up on their wall as well. That is of a spammy nature.
Some more quick examples; being spammy could be writing articles and stuffing your keyword that you are trying to get indexed for in about every paragraph. Being spammy could be making a website from a software that cranks out tons of pages based on a thousand keywords related to the niches you are involved in. That use to work 10 years ago. Not any more, Google will not index those types of sites any longer.
Other rules you need to be aware of are paying your taxes. Yes you still need to do a good job in the accounting department and take care of your taxes. There can be many tax benefits from creating wealth from home and you should know that going in. You can deduct all sorts of expenses related to your business. I heartily suggest you study the tax topic pretty thoroughly.
You also have to have a legal business in every sense of the word so if you are in doubt about any aspect of your business it is advised you get some expert advise. There are many sources you can go to regarding home based businesses. You can check with an attorney. You can check with your local city hall about any ordinances or licenses you may need to acquire. You also want to consider your good name. Many people out there are down right dishonest or very shady to say the least and the word gets out about them one way or another.
Speaking of scams, you may be considering in your desire of creating wealth from home of joining an opportunity you learned about from some online avenue. A good way to determine if it is a legitimate business with honesty and integrity is to Google search the name of the business or principles of the business followed by the word scam or review. This will most likely bring up some search results that tell about the company or individual. One thing I have found is that if the opportunity has screwed some body over, you are going to find it on the first page of Google this way. How do I know that? There are a couple of good sites out there that a lot of people know about and people list their complaints on these sites.
