Lots and lots of people now days dream of leaving their old 9 to 5 job. In fact some of you hate them so bad that you would love to be able to just tell your boos exactly what to do with that job. Most of us are stopped short of that by the fear of how we would make ends meet and just live in general. We would really like to be able to own our own online business. of course, the fear of what we would do and how we would pay for a business much less our daily life sends this thought to a screeching halt.

We all know that setting up a business of any kind takes money, especially if you own it alone. You will be happy to hear that if you consider and set up a home based business called Affiliate Marketing it is pretty easy to do and there are several things about it that makes it a good deal.

Since we are considering a home based business, this is the most appealing thing about it as you will work from the comfort of your own home. Some of the other rewards of being at home are, if you have small children then they can stay at home with you and save day care money. You also don't have to commute, you don't have to go out and buy clothing required by a company you would be working for. Another great thing is you can work all your other commitment right in with your every day activities of working at your home.

When you set up or start a regular home based business, you will of course have competition to face and this could make it harder for you to get and keep customers. The main reason for this is that people tend to keep using what has been proven to work for them already. If you find a good business that you know a lot about and that no one else around you is already in, then you would have a decent chance of making a go of it. On the other hand, if you start an Affiliate marketing home based business, you will be selling established products that lots of people already use. To make this even more stress free for you, you can even check to see how well the products actually are selling.

Most of the time when you start a home based business, it can take a long time to get it established. Some reports even say that about 70 percent of small home based businesses fail in the first year or so. So many times it takes so long to realize a profit big enough to live on and all this time you must keep spending money to keep it going in hopes of making it pay you and your family. Now consider the Affiliate Marketing business we already mentioned and look at the good facts about it. It is much easier to manage. You will still have to work hard to let people know who you are etc., but most of the getting started will be done for you. You'll already have something to sell and someone else advertising it for you. The company rep will always be available to answer any questions that you might have.

This home based Affiliate Marketing business can look even better when you consider what a large amount of money is needed just for start up on regular businesses of any kind, much less one you are considering doing alone. Usually you will have to take a loan or loans from the bank or some loan company. This puts everything at even more risk. When you think of the 2 kinds of business there is about 90% less risk with the Affiliate Marketing business.

Now lets take all things into consideration. Running your own home based business can be extremely rewarding. Some of the (lucky) ones working at home and making a go of it are treated to tremendous financial rewards. It is evident that the odds of this happening are small. If your home based business is in Affiliate Marketing, then the risk is much smaller. You still have to work hard, but the rewards are often so much greater than in a regular business.
