What is Home Based Business

If you work from or in your home, you have a home-based business. Sometimes folks manufacturer products in their home (including the garage and that old shed out back) and sell them at flea markets, by direct mail or mail order, or on the Internet. What is Home Based Business? It is how you are making money from your own home.

If you are an artist or photographer, you probably work from home. Artist frequently paint from photographs they have taken and they can not only sell the photographs, but their paintings or other art work. I see lots of photographers and artist selling their wares at flea markets and you, of course, can do the same thing. So that is a home-based business. Photographers also make good money taking pics of babies or weddings, etc. And you can work out of your home.

So what is home based business? It is using your talents and skills to produce income at home. If your skill is punching the keys on your computer keyboard, then you can start a business based on your computer. I do this. I sell one of two types of products which I will categorize here:

Your Own Products

My neighbor here in Buhl, Idaho sells lavender products. She grow the stuff in her fields, one of which was damaged by fire the other day, and she boils it down and puts the essence in lotions and such. She sells these from local stores but also from her Lavender Farms site on the Internet. Two years ago she lost her husband.

Thank goodness she had her own business to support her to provide the income she needs each day. She is making a very good living. She told me how much a few years ago but I won't squeal on her.

Have you got a plot of ground where you could grow some magical herbs or such that you could sell locally or on the Internet.

My daughter-in-law sells jewelry that she makes on her kitchen table when her triplets and the other two children are at school or playing in the back yard. The possibilities here are endless.

Other People's Products

Avon Calling! Well, that is one way to get started.

I've sold everything from Bibles to encyclopedias door to door. There are so many opportunities here that I could hardly list them all. Yes, I sold shoes. Anything to get through college. I use to bird dog for a construction company. I knocked on doors asking if the patron wanted us to build a new basement bedroom or a new porch. For that I got a commission.

You can see that home based businesses in this category are all commission based. However, if you are a dealer selling other people's products, as I do, you can call that your markup from the wholesale price to the retail price.

The products that I sell in this category are all drop shipped by the manufacturer so I'm basically an order taker. Folks go to my sites and order. I fax the order to the supplier. That's it! What is a home based business? That's one way to go.

Many on the Internet are what are called affiliate marketers. They obtain the right (which cost nothing) to sell a product for a commission. It may be a real product or a written or media product. At any rate, they gather up the orders and collect the commissions. You can learn to do this.
