Ecommerce Opportunities For Mothers And Others

by Jack Brooks

Financial consultant and former analyst Jan MacGregor says, “There are people out there who are expecting to meet their bills better (after they re-enter the workforce) and never realize they are working either for a loss or for something like $4,000 a year (after expenses).” 

If you think about the many “unseen” expenses of a two-income family, MacGregor’s analysis, though it seems hard to believe, is frequently the case.  With the freedom and deductions available with having your own business, many mothers and other folks wanting to work at home are starting their own home-based businesses.

Web Design

There are thousands of home-based businesses to select from when you make your mind up to start your own. Options include web design – while user-friendly programs like FrontPage allow most people to design their own website and free templates are widely available, a lot of business and institutional owners understand that for their website to look first rate and to be really effective in drawing in business, the know-how of a skilled website designer is often necessary.

Affiliate Marketing 

Becoming an affiliate marketer is another great home-based business option. Here are the reasons why:

  1. Low-cost setup – all you need to start your business is an Internet-connected computer and word processing software; most affiliate programs are free to join and you can simply buy web site traffic using a pay-per-click online ad service, such as Google Adwords.

  2.  

  3. High-income potential – there’s no corporate salary structure or capricious boss, with your own affiliate business your income level is limited only by your own desire and effort
  4. .
     

  5. Low operating costs – your affiliate business keeps running and generating profits for you 24/7.
