It takes the right type of person and situation to be able to work from home. Many online sellers spend their evenings and days off on the Internet working hard to promote their products. Some may do it for the fun and the extra income while others are really trying hard to be successful and hoping to be self-employed someday.

I would not encourage anyone to tell his or her employer to stick it and jump right into being self-employed. Making the leap from a reliable and steady paycheck to being self-employed is daunting.

So many factors need to be considered and safety measures in place before you can make the change.

The number one things to consider are your finances. Can you afford to not bring in any money for a few months? An ideal situation would to have your spouse employed and able to support the household. They must also be willing to do so as well. If you have no extra income from other sources you can save up enough in the bank to support yourself for at least 12 months (mortgage/rent, utilities, groceries). This will give you 6 months to give your business ideas a try and then another 6 months to spend finding another job should it be necessary. While 12 months seems like a lot of time and money this venture is not supposed to hurt you and make you homeless.

Along with financial consideration, if you plan on buying a car, house, or leasing an apartment, do all of these things before you quit your job. The lenders will ask for paychecks and you will be much better off providing paychecks from your employer than coming up with some shady figures for your self-employed income.

Your next responsibility is all of the benefits you will be losing once you become self-employed. The big one is medical insurance. Buying private medical insurance is extremely expensive. Determine if you can be added to your spouses plan. Besides medical insurance, many employers provide paid vacation and sick days. If you are sick and self-employed you will not be getting paid unless you do work.

Now that you have safeguards in place for loss of income and benefits that will result in leaving your current employer it is time to ask yourself if you can work from home. Be ready to put in more hours and get paid less per hour than your previous employment. Are you disciplined enough to work an 8+ hour day from your home? You will need to fight the temptations to watch TV, go out in the yard, hangout with friends and anything else that may get in your way of working. Are you mentally ready to handle the stress that will follow with slow sales and mounting bills? The fact is not everyone will succeed and you will need to know when to call it quits if it just is not working out.

With all of the above taking into consideration the best advice is to take small steps. Start off working in your spare time growing your revenue and business assets. Once your spare time is no longer enough to meet your customers demands it will then be time to ask yourself if you are ready to work from home.

The ability to work from home is a dream for some and can be a nightmare for others. Becoming successful working from home does have many perks: you are available for your family, you set your own hours, and the amount of money you want to make is dependent on how hard you work. Weigh the risks and benefits and make a joint decision with those that the choice will affect.

Interestingly there are many people who still doubt the significance of having a business website. “Our customers don’t use the Internet,” they often claim, oblivious to the fact that a website is not just to facilitate online sales. A website performs multifarious operations right from non-stop promotion, advertising, customer relations and public relations, e-commerce, information dissemination and social media awareness. Some of the primary functions of websites are briefly mentioned below.

Customer service

As a business you constantly need to interact and communicate with your customers and clients. Your customers and clients should be easily able to contact you or avail crucial information about your business on time, and you should be able to convey important messages and make announcements in a timely and efficient matter. A website facilitates two-way communication between your business and your customers and clients.

Through contact form or e-mail present on your website your customers and clients can get in touch with you with great speed without having to be put on hold upon making a phone call. Similarly, whenever there are important announcements or product launches you can publish the updates on your business website. Every message that can have an impact on business-customer relationship can be immediately published on your business website. There are no working hours when it comes to your website; your website is accessible to your customers and clients 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

Public relations

This is somewhat similar to the point discussed above. Your customers and clients, and even journalists and analysts, can access your corporate literature at the convenience of a few mouse clicks. In case there is a misunderstanding or miscommunication you can immediately do the damage control through your business website. If some misinformation is being circulated regarding your company you can immediately clarify by publishing your side of the story on your website.

Many companies provide highly useful information on their corporate websites and this really boosts the public relations. For instance during the recent cyclone there were many business websites that actively published important phone numbers and contact information on their websites.

Making money

As mentioned above trillions of dollars are being spent on online transactions. Why not become a part of this massive economy? The greatest advantage of having a business website is that you can sell products and services all over the world from a tiny office in your basement. Doing business from a website is the quickest way of launching a new business and making money. Advanced and innovative websites created by Easy2usesites KZN makes sure that their clients reap great rewards by partnering with such a leading edge company.

Customer-demand

These days every company worth its salt has a website. This means if you don’t have a website then your competitors definitely have one and your customers are aware of that. Your customers demand that you have a website so that they can access it whenever they need to obtain information, contact you or carry out a business transaction. They deem it highly objectionable if you are reachable only during the working hours and after that you are totally gone. Agreed, that you can’t be available all the time and this is a fact that your customers are aware of too but they want your website to be available at every hour. They consider a business extremely archaic and outdated if it does not have a website.

Expand your market

The world is a global village now and everybody can participate. Stop being confined to your local market and reach out to the global market. It is as simple as launching a website. To an online customer it doesn’t matter if you are sitting next door or in another country or on another continent; he or she can simply log onto your website and carry out business with you within a couple of minutes. You don’t even have to open a local office.
