Some of the best home business ideas on the planet have been launched over the past decade and with the power of the Internet and the world wide web, it’s now easier then ever to research and gather information about companies.
There are many home business models today. Just to name a few we have:
MLM – (MLM) is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of others they recruit, creating a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple levels of compensation.
Affiliate Marketing – Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts. Examples include rewards sites, where users are rewarded with cash or gifts, for the completion of an offer, and the referral of others to the site.
Internet Marketing – also known as digital marketing, web marketing, online marketing, search marketing or e-marketing, is referred to as the marketing (generally promotion) of products or services over the Internet. Internet marketing also refers to the placement of media along many different stages of the customer engagement cycle through search engine marketing (SEM), search engine optimization (SEO), banner ads on specific websites, email marketing, mobile advertising, and Web 2.0 strategies.
Those are just three home business idea models, however there are many more.
The idea of working from home is appealing to many people as today. People are just not working for company’s for 30 years anymore, in fact the average length of employment in today’s job market is only 3-5 years. Companies are doing away with company matched 401k’s and have slimmed down benefits to almost nothing.
Home based businesses are a great alternative to working for someone else and in my personal experience, the Internet Marketing model mixed with a top tier direct sales product line is by FAR the most lucrative of all the models.
I am not ripping on MLM, but I have to say that the majority of people in that type of business model, make no money at all. In fact they spend more money then they make. The best home business ideas for 2011 and 2012 in my humble yet accurate opinion is to get with a company that has a proven track record of churning out leaders and who have the best interest of the members in mind, not their own bottom line.
There are all kinds of crazy businesses out there. Don’t fall for the headlines and ads that just talk about how you can make $30K in 30 days. Sure it’s possible, but not until your a seasoned veteran. You’ll never hear that in a marketing message.
Like anything else home based businesses take a lot of work to get off the ground. You have to be able to put yourself in a position to win by working your butt off for a period of time to gain the momentum your going to need to build a sustainable home business. Then, you will want to develop some leaders. I am talking about stand alone leaders on your team that can develop other leaders. That is where your freedom will come from.
