How to run a successful business from home


Working from home is no walk in the park so let’s have a look at how to work from home on the internet and in your PJ’s.

A few short years back my office lease changed so I took an offer on new premises. A week before moving the landlord involved had a mind change around having to give a 5+5 lease decided he wanted to demolish in that time so withdrew the offer.

I was out in the cold.

I was lucky that we were mostly a sales and marketing operation so had no big infrastructure to move.

Bear in mind this was a few years ago when the cloud environment was just starting to change so it required a lot of planning. Accounting, meetings, documents for sharing phones, faxes the list was indeed long.

You are so lucky now that everything is easily and cheaply available when you know where to go.

Working solo at home

If you are a solo operator working as an extension of a business life is pretty easy.

Phone systems can be in the cloud so your home desk phone is just an extension of the office. No difference to being at the next desk to being in the next suburb.

Document and diary sharing is the next issue and there are lots of opportunities. An example is coschedule or backpackit which we use.

These provide the ability to work on projects together, see where everyone is and draw from company documents when necessary.

Accounting is easy by using MYOB, Xerox or say QuickBooks online accounting. Everyone can get in And play if you have a password.

Fax to email is a product so no fax machines are required; back up is in the cloud and banking a breeze.

So that is all the easy bits. There are enough available tools to suit anyone.

Tools are just a part of working from home.

You need to be more structured and to work successfully

That means no PJ’s and a fixed time schedule to work to, although. you can vary hours.

As an early riser I do my emails and daily office functions early in the morning so I am ready to really get going when it suits me.

I save about 30 minutes travel to an office and another half hour of water cooler chatter giving me an extra hour in the morning.

In the evening I gain another half hour and often keep going into the late evening to complete tasks that are important.
My point is that my 7.5 hours workday can be spread over a 12 hour period. A gym break, coffee or other meetings do not rob me of my activity time.

Others working from home

My Administrator is also an early riser and will often complete a day’s work before lunch, Starts at about 5 am and works through the task.

The sales people can work in country time zones that vary over the year. In summer there is a three hour difference across the country in 5 time zones so pick your times of work to suit your customers.

I have a lock away time from the partner and Kids who often consider you available because you are at home. I am at home but this is my work period when I focus on a task and set a time to do it without interruptions.

Working contacts

How to Work from Home on Internet

Probably the hardest issue to overcome is working contact. This was particularly hard to adjust to and remains to this day a bit of an issue.
I am talking mostly about brainstorming or discussing ideas or asking simple questions and or in a group focus.

We use email a lot and have a weekly coffee meeting where we discuss problems, issues or even just things that need airing. I miss just yelling across the office what do you think of such and such or getting instant collaboration on a problem.

I always dress for workdays, I mean in clothes that I could walk out the door and go to a meeting if need be. Many of us home workers find that it puts you in a better work based frame of mind.

You need to remember you are not on holidays, you are working an getting paid by the hour

So you have the tools and some rules now you just need to apply them.

So you want to get rich online with little money.

How to start an online business free is really easy and Here Peter Hanley adds some great ideas.

Is this just a pipe dream or can it really be achieved by the average Joe?

The internet is full off get rich schemes and generally, there is only one person that gets rich.

You got it, it’s the get rich promoter who takes your money and delivers your dreams.

But, my friend dreams don’t achieve anything, the action gets results.

Follow me as I take you on this little journey and provide a few healthy tips to save you time and money.

First up is the fact that you must contribute some time to work at this. Although saying that I should backpedal a bit and say you need to go back to school for awhile.

You must learn some basics about the internet and what it has to offer, about web pages, blogs, Social media, SEO and who sells what.

Can you learn all this for free? The answer is yes you can at somewhere like Wealthy Affiliate that takes you from day one right through to making money and without spending a dime.

Or, you can find any amount of courses that can hit you for fees up to about $20 grand if you want to spend money.

 Beware the bad

Only recently one of these was closed down. It was called MOBE and had an entry fee of just $49 with a great promise. What it achieved was to extract more money from you as you followed the dream to empty bank accounts and no results. They were very successful and amassed a huge amount of money that was taken back by the US Feds, Countless people lost so much never to get a return.

This author invested the $49 to have a look but backed out following pressure tactics to go to another level. I saved my money.

I cite this as a warning, a very necessary one because this is just one of many out there looking for you.

Online businesses take many forms although the biggest is undoubtedly Amazon. They are also quite safe to deal with. They do have a University course that is probably a good investment but the initial training can be very useful at Amazon

Be the Master

Now the next opportunities are really exciting because you are the master.

The focus is important because the opportunities on the Net are so varied that you can’t do them all.

With Social media for example businesses should include at least one of these mainstream products like Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Linked in or any others in current demand.

Learn one of these intimately and then contact local businesses to manage the product.

This should only take a few weeks and start to fund your expansion.

Having seen this firsthand  I know it works. A close friend just pulled a $25k contract doing Facebook marketing, all from Home.
She concentrated on Facebook took a few courses and learnt her way to manage a project that runs over several months.
The important message is she did the work first, spent days and nights getting an education that would pay off.
You could go to College for a year and learn less than is available on the Web at your own time and for free.

Local directories

Local directories search is another area that you can specialize in that can deliver instant results for the business.

There are local directories in every area. They don’t usually generate a lot of calls but they do help with Search Engine performance. Once you have collected all the necessary contacts and a bit of an idea of how to market then you will have several thousand customers near you willing to employ your services.
I can list about 15 local and trade directories available in my area. Yo just need to search under any term and they will appear.

Read that as you collecting a database of customers. You can then move on to a social media engineering role.

You won’t find this one simple idea in many places because it is a hidden agenda that not many realize exists. You could do it for free to gather customers to move into a real earning platform in Social media.

How do you get customers?

Well, there is the good old fashion phone for a starter, ring and ask.

You can, with a bit of learning find them with Facebook marketing.

Or if all else fails you can do a bit of door knocking.

You just need to pose the question, are you aware of the many local directories available and their impact on your business. Then it is simply I can do this for you for x $ to save you the time.

Customer gained and income earned how good is that?

Businesses have a need. Facebook posting is useless unless it is consistent and persistent.

Instagram is the same and business owners simply do not have time. You can program posts to go out over a period of time so it really becomes an easy task, a task at which you are the master.

There are many ways to make an income without investing money but you must trade dollars for time.
