Are you ready to start making some extra money on the side, or even to start earning a nice full-time income all from the comfort of your own home? If you said yes, then you are not alone, as more and more people are turning to their computers to start earning a living from home. Even though it is simple to get started, it is not easy to succeed. There are some very confusing messages out there of what you should actually do in order to achieve success when working from home, and most of it is incorrect. If you want to achieve success in your home-based business, you absolutely have to get advice from someone who has been there and done it already.With that said, let’s take a look at what my top 3 tricks are for achieving success in your own home based business:Trick #1 – Sell electronic productsIt is so easy to sell information products online (ebooks, MP3′s, etc), and if you have anything you can share with others, then you have what it takes to make it in the information product business. Millions of people are searching for solutions to their problems online every single day, so if you were to create some simple products then you can sell them online and keep 100% of the profits. On top of the ease of selling these products, there is no need to store them in your home, and the cost to send them to your customers is free, since they are sent electronically.Trick #2 – Treat your home-based business like a real businessMany people make the mistake of assuming that a home-based business is somehow easier to run and make profitable then a brick-and-mortar business, but if anything it is actually harder. You are essentially creating something out of nothing, so if you want to be successful, you should be prepared to work long hours for quite some time in order to become established, build your reputation, and become profitable. One of the great things about a home-based business in today’s world is that you can become profitable almost immediately since there is very little overhead involved in your start-up.Trick #3 – Don’t be afraid to failOne of the most common causes of failure in starting your own business is the fear of making mistakes and failing. If you want to make it in business, you have to have the guts to go outside of your comfort zone and just go for it. Don’t be afraid to seek the counsel of someone who has successfully started their own home-based business already, as these people can help you to significantly cut the learning curve and therefore become successful much, much faster than if you tried to figure it all out on your own.

Three Reasons Not To Fear Your Home Based Business Competition

As today’s economy is still struggling, many people are finding themselves too fearful to take their first step toward operating a home based business. They are afraid of many things, but one of the things they are most fearful of is their competition. They just do not think they could start up their own company and compete with a company that is already established and may be bigger. If you are too fearful to start your own company in your home, the following are just three reasons why you should not fear any of your competitors:The main reason you should not fear your competition is that they will be providing you with the motivation to do better. When many people start a home based business, they often find they have difficulty staying on task and getting their work done. No one is hovering over them, telling them what to do, and, well, there really isn’t any personal punishment for not getting the work done (beyond the fact that you don’t get paid). However, knowing your competition is taking your customers away from you will give you the motivation you need to do your best.Another reason to not fear any of your competitors is you can use their business to better your own. One of the best things you can do is evaluate your competition and see exactly what they offer and how they are promoting it. You can use your own company to fill in their missing gaps. By offering better quality products and services to your target market, you can be sure your competition is not going to stand a chance against your own business. 
Last, you must not fear your home based business competition as there is always room in today’s world. The key is to not give up. You are going to have to work hard, especially if you are competing with a much larger company. However, if you take advantage of all of the promotional opportunities on the Internet, there is no reason why your own company can not be successful and make your own place in the world.

Home-Based-Business: How to Be First and Get Deals With No Competition At Every Garage Sale!

How can you be the first one to every garage sale, every time? How can you get their first, and still get the absolute best prices? How can you just flat wipe out any competition? How can you make a big business out of buying garage sales? Find out right now!I cleaned out my shop last month – it made me think about garage sales. We (my wife and I) have also been business partners for 30 years. We have always been fascinated by business and business marketing, even on the micro start-up level. As I cleaned out my shop, I had the following thoughts a home-based-business based on garage sales.Thought #1: Make an offer they can’t refuse. If you have just one or two thousand dollars in capital to start your home-based-business, you can go to almost any garage sale, survey everything there and make an offer on all of it.This is true today, but it would have been risky home-based-business not that long ago. Simply scan the stuff for the most valuable items. Write down what they are. Walk town the block and get on the internet and check eBay’s Completed Items category to check the actual value – this will show you what actually sold.Garage Sale Home-Based-Business Thought #2: Make the offer for everything. Make your offer is based on the value of the key items, but take everything. You may not want to take everything, but by offering to take everything, you’ll get all the small stuff for free or nearly free because you are taking the problem away for the seller.In other words, do what others won’t and you’ll win. No other buyer is going to mess with the small stuff, so their offers on the good stuff will not have as much value as your offer.You may be saying to yourself as you read this that you don’t want to deal with the little junk – I understand that. However, if you just set up a simple sorting system and donate what you don’t want to resell, you’ll get great deals from the sellers who REALLY don’t want to deal with the small stuff. Dealing with things fast and right is what being in a real home-based-business all about.Garage Sale Home-Based-Business Thought #3: How can you eliminate the competition?How can you always be first to a garage sale without competition? Run Craig’s List ads that say, “I’LL BUY YOUR ENTIRE GARAGE SALE NOW!” Place it in the “wanted” category. In the body of the ad, tell them you’ll pay a price that will make them happy and you’ll take everything to save them the trouble of having a garage sale – you can even offer to sweep the garage out in the bargain. Why? The more you make it a “service” the more seriously your offer will be considered. In fact, it would be good to use the word “service” in everything you do with your new home-based-business.Why? It’s because we are all human. If someone wants to help you, even if they are buying everything you have at a bargain, you’ll be more inclined to think kindly of them and accept their offer. Contrast with the hard and crusty professional buyers you see at garage sales who are simply trying to make low ball offers on only the items they want. You want to be providing a service – the service eliminating all of the hassle for your customer.What are you risking by softening the blow of your offer by offering to sweep the garage? The vast majority will appreciate the offer but won’t have you sweep. Why? It’s because most of them are neat freaks – that’s why they are selling everything at a bargain! They just want to get to the good part, the part they like, cleaning up.This is important: Please understand this – you are advertising to people who are thinking about having a garage sale. You are offering to save them time because they won’t need to have a garage sale at all, because you’ll take all of it. Can you see how you won’t have any competition? You’ll be the only buyer there because you’re there when they are just in the thinking stage – just thinking about having a garage sale!WARNING:Always think in terms of massive action when it comes to business. Advertise on CL and your local throw-away paper like The Penny Saver. Also, make up a flyer and make 5,000 copies for very little money by finding a printer online. Put out 1,000 at a time and see what you get. Be sure to use the same language – you want to buy their entire garage sale of items.Buying at garage sales and reselling on eBay and CL always sounds like a tiny business. STOP thinking small. You could get rich fast doing this home-based-business.What should you do next?
