Work At Home Party

You probably are wondering just what kind of party is a work at home party?  Well, my idea of it is that it becomes a party when all visitors get together with their thoughts and ideas and share them with one another through comments in the comments section.

introductionTo Get It Started…

I have been trying to do a home business for about a year now and it really gives me something to keep my brain juices flowing. Some people like to read books but I like trying to find ways to generate extra income.

Speaking of reading, it is a lot of that involved when you are researching products or types of businesses.  So if you do read a lot it probably won’t be hard for you to take something you are interested in and put it to work for you.

I see a lot of people trying to promote what the best products to sell are or the best business to do at home is. In reality, I feel that if it is a need for something, that pretty much qualifies it as a good thing to get into as a business.

about-affiliate-marketingWhat About Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing will sort of put both the products and the type of business in your lap at the same time. You just have to make sure you like doing the business side and then the products will be unlimited pertaining to the business.

Let me make an example. I started a lawn service earlier this year. If you read any of my writing you have heard me mention this in another post.

old-school-lawn-service-logoThe business side was lawn maintenance and guess what the product side was? Anything that pertained to lawn care, lawn furniture, lawn equipment and any product that is related to the lawn niche.

You can see my point about the products just fall in there with the business idea.

I am pretty sure if you are reading this post you have a desire to try to work from home right? What are your ideas? Are you wanting to just do a particular service type business or are you wanting to also work it from home with affiliate marketing?

home-officeWhat Do You Need For Affiliate Marketing?

Well, I am going to say you yourself with something you like doing and a website. That is really not it.   I’m just playing.

But for real yall,  you don’t really have to pay anybody to build a website and maintain it unless that is what you want to do. I am going to introduce you to a way to do it yourself even if you have never done it before.

All TheTraining And Startup Website You Need

I know you probably heard of all these different places offering you a free website and you can get on your way. What they don’t tell you is that there are things you have to know to get your site up and running properly.

This means making sure you can be found by the search engines and using different plugins to ensure the proper functions on your website.wa-logo

Also, things like having a secure URL (website address) in which people want to see if they are going to do any money transactions on your site.

Stuck At Home Income

There are different situations that cause someone to spend the mother-at-homemajority of their time at home. Sometimes one may not be able to go out and work a full-time job to earn revenue.  But if you can find a way to make money while you are homebound for any reason you could say you do make a stuck at home income.

Should being at home prevent you from making an income?

Not in this day and age it shouldn’t. There are many things that are available to help you make money at home. There are many companies out there that will pay you to do small assignments for them.

This is what you would call a virtual assistant.  These jobs vary from setting appointments to technical support and many other things that you are capable of doing that someone would pay you for.

So as long as you know within your heart that you are capable of being productive with any experience you may have gained over the years then know you can make an income if you apply yourself.

This usually would break the best of us. Have you ever heard of affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing gives you the products you need to sell without having to fork out money to have an inventory.

You simply take products of already established entities and market them for a commission.  You just found something to sell with no out of pocket expense of having an inventory.

Now, How Am I Suppose To Sell To People?

This is where you have to spend a little money. Think about it. There are billions of people on the internet right? And when you go on line to look for stuff you go to a website right? Well, there you go.  You need your own website.how-can-i

If you are thinking that you don’t know how to make a website, don’t let that be the thing that halts you from trying. Most people would. But I am here to tell you that anyone can build and promote with a website with just a little guidance.

This is where I would like to extend my hand out to guide you to an opportunity to build your own website or sites and I promise you it will seem so easy to you once you start.

Reservation Scams Revealed

travel-planningMaking reservations for hotels is a must for us when we are making plans to go on vacation, family reunions or business trips. Because of the degree that a scam artist will go, we would stand a better chance of avoiding being scammed if potential scams are exposed.

Sometimes not receiving what you expect will come from companies you may have heard of which brings me to my topic of reservation scams revealed.

What Is Being Done With Hotel Reservations

Although some will have a good experience with booking hotels through a booking service, there are those who will have a nightmare experience.reservation-desk

While looking into some of the different experiences I found some of them probably could have been avoided.

Some people have complained about being put on the wrong days and some about the pricing, such as the lowest price guarantees that often are not the lowest price available.

Customer service does mean a lot when you are having a problem and need to get it resolved. This brings another complaint in which most of them are said to be unprofessional and give you a major run around instead of fixing a problem you may have.

Because a third party reservation company is being used, a lot of reservations get lost and some people get caught in the middle of a trip and have to try to straighten out where they are going to be lodging at the last minute.

These are just a few things that people have complained about. Below are some personal complaints that I ran into about Hotel.com, a known source while looking into this that does happen.

hotel-reservation-complaint-1

hotel-reservation-complaint-2

hotel-reservation-complaint-3

hotel-reservation-complaint-4

How To Avoid Reservation Scams

The only true way to ensure that you will most likely receive what you requested is to knock out the middle man and go directly to the source.making-reservations

Now I am sure that there is some success in using a hotel booking agent but why take the chance if you don’t have to? I’m not saying that they all are out to scam you but if two sources touch things it tends to cause confusion at times.

You are dealing with a business that has a lot of competition trying to win clients using all tactics to win when the only one that should matter in your mind is the hotel itself.

If you get caught between the two of them with a conflict, chances are the blame will go back and forth leading to not being resolved.

Although some companies are very well known and can get the job done, you never can tell what will happen between the time you set everything up until the time you arrive.trivago-logo

This could happen with the best such as Trivago, Kayak, or Hotwire and that isn’t mentioning the many rogue booking sites available out there.

So you see, I suggest using the information from these hotel reservation sources and then contacting the hotel on your own and then at least you will be dealing with the only one that matters.

If there is any wrong information in what you found out you will certainly find it right then and right now.

Conclusion

Convenience is good but sometimes it can be zealous which causes you to make a decision you wish you hadn’t. So if you are going to use an outside source for hotel reservations be aware of some of the potential consequences.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to share any experiences you may have had or ask any questions or give any comment in the comments section below.

 

Take Notice Of Scammers

It is a shame that with the positive things technology can bring it gets tarnished by the bad element which is the scammers. This is why we must take notice of scammers.internet-scams

The internet supplies many ways to start your own business and even an easier way to find employment. But because anyone can use this platform to attract people to what they are offering or seeking, we must really make sure we are not being taken advantage of.

How often do you search out things via the internet?

Me myself, I am always looking for product information and sometimes ways to earn revenue online. There is a lot of good information you can find.

But at the same time, you have to be cautious because there is always the bad apples who are there just to take advantage of people for their own self-gain.

Types of schemes such as…types-of-scams

get rich quick schemes, health product schemes, lottery schemes, investment schemes and even work from home schemes.

Many of these schemes are hard to pick up on until you are already taken by surprise. So always remember that what sounds too good to be true probably isn’t.

It doesn’t hurt to pry into what you may be considering before you go all in especially if you can check into it without spending your hard earned cash.

Does this mean don’t try things?  contemplating

No, it really doesn’t. What it means is to think before you leap. I always say if someone gives me an opportunity at no cost to try something, I most likely will.

Reason being I already know to look for certain things like upsells which sometimes tell me that it is all about getting as much money out of you as possible before you figure it out.

Not all offers with upsells are bad as long as you are actually getting something positive out of it rather than just empty promises. But if you are being cautious you will catch any thing fishy before you get taken.

But at least if you were trying it out free you did get a good way to inspect, try and decide if the offer was something that would work for you.

Would you like to witness a great offer you can try yourself first before going all in?

I found a good program in which after trying I am 11 months into it. At first, I was skeptical because it sounded good for not having to pay anything.

I tried it because I had all these ideas and no way to use them. The program introduced me to affiliate marketing which went hand in hand with every idea I had.

While looking into it I found no schemes, no lies, and plenty of sense in what I was being introduced to.wa-review

I am talking about Wealthy Affiliate. Right at the beginning, you will start learning how to become your own boss doing affiliate marketing. And it is very exciting as well.

So go ahead and Click Here to have your own look into affiliate marketing at your own pace and discretion. I guarantee you won’t feel like you walked into a scam.

You may even say it isn’t for you but I will say you will have looked into something that will give you a legitimate way to start taking your ideas and potentially generating some income with them.

I hope you will give it a try and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

Offline Vs. Online Businesses

There are many ways to become successful at having your own business. Many have considered starting a business but never took the first step.

Maybe it was because of the uncertainty of what to do. This brings me to which is the best in this competition of offline vs. online businesses.

What I discovereddicovered

Recently I have run into an article that listed 50 offline businesses ideas. They were all very good ways to start out.

They were ideas like child care, coffee cart, food truck, lawn service, handyman, vendor, and dog walker just to name a few. Click here to view more options.

Offline businesses usually focus on one service or job that you perform starting out. There can be unlimited potential in whatever you are good at.

It may be an auto mechanic or even a pet groomer. You just have to love what you are doing and want to do it well.

Let’s compare this to an online business… online-vs-offline

An online business takes the same passion an offline business would take. You must want to do it well and make it successful.

In short, there is not much difference between the two as far as taking an idea and putting it into motion.

The advantage to an online business is that it can have a lower start up cost than an offline business which may call for equipment, a place of business and other physical needs like transportation vehicles.

My personal recommendation   

First of all, I would like to recommend not shying away from learning how to do an online business starting out. It will get the juices flowing for you and become useful in the long run. WA-logo

I started my learning process with Wealthy Affiliate which is an excellent platform to train you in affiliate marketing. I chose this route because affiliate marketing gives you more ways to make revenue over performing one job or service.

Plus it was something new to me which made it exciting in which I knew would keep me interested.

Once I started learning how to use websites to generate income, another idea hit me. I can do an offline business and then combine it with my affiliate marketing to maximize my potential.

What did I do?

I started a Lawn Service and built my own website and added affiliate marketing with it.old-school-lawn-service-logo

So far the website has helped me obtain 10 customers since March of this year. My good work brought me some decent reviews.  Click Here to see.

My babies are Old School Lawn Service which led me to spin off www.oldschoollawnservice.com. Within the website is Old School Lawn Supplies that is my affiliate marketing program.

Conclusion

There is really no winner here because they both take determination, a desire to do it and a mindset to learn and improve along the way.

They both have great potentials and some cost to start up. But whichever you choose you can be successful if you take the first step and put your all into it. Click Here to get started the way I did.

My Wealthy Affiliate Progress Report

I am proud to announce that my journey here at Wealthy Affiliate has been one of an awakening, learning, joyous, surprising and a sense of accomplishment. Many times I tried to find a way to have my own business and was just a victim to pass money to the next person with nothing in return.

elatedI am so elated about what I have accomplished in the last 11 months since I started taking my passions and putting them into action with my training in affiliate marketing, that I must share my Wealthy Affiliate progress report to all that need to know the best way to control your own destiny.

The Beginning

Back in July 2016, I was looking for a way to try to generate revenue in my spare time without trying to work two jobs which would have physically beat me down.

I was looking all over the internet trying to find out where to start. I ran into a program that offered me a free membership and I said to myself, what do I have to lose and joined Wealthy Affiliate.

Once I did, I thought I had jumped into something I have no idea how to do which is building websites. But the platform here was so relaxing to a newcomer that it just fired me up to jump in and go for it.

Where Is The Catch?

That was going through my mind around the 3-week mark. I was waiting for the upsells and they never came.  There was an offer to go premium which did cost but after feeling the power of the program the fear of being scammed was long gone.i-cant-believe

There wasn’t an outrageous unattainable amount that was required which I know anybody would appreciate. I felt like $47.00 a month was not a lot to invest in myself.

But the monthly option saved me because I did not have the $359 yearly cost. I would have loved to go yearly but I simply did not have it.

But deep down inside because the way Wealthy Affiliate is set up, it is there to help you succeed instead of bleed you for your money.

My First Step

cycling-for-fun-logoMy very first site that made me my first revenue was www.cyclingforfunwithron.com. This was my baby because I was riding my bike about 7 to 10 miles a day to and from work.

I took what Wealthy Affiliate introduced me to and the tools they provided me with and built a beautiful affiliate site surrounding my bike riding.

The Adrenaline Is Flowing Now

About 4 months into it I realized that I could introduce people to the program and I could do it feeling good that I was not misleading people. So I built www.dontbescammedsaysron.com.dont-be-scammed-logo

This site came purely from my heart to show people you can actually start a home business without paying outrageous sign ups or upsells and get nothing in return.

This is one of the ways that Wealthy Affiliate trains you on getting traffic to your site and gaining another form of revenue in the form of referral fees. And believe me, it is one of the highest commission percentages available.

Ideas From Nowhere   

Because of this new found love of mine, my mind really went into overdrive and because I like maintaining my lawn so much I started a lawn service and built my own site saving me an expense doing it the DIY way.

The site I came up with is www.oldschoollawnservice.com.  Thisold-school-lawn-service-logo idea came around the 6-month mark. I’m telling you this Wealthy Affiliate thing has taken me to another level. Within the first month, I had gained 4 customers and I sit on 9 customers now.

Not bad for just starting up 4 months prior. I even incorporated some affiliate marketing on this site as well to generate income with products.

The Sky Is The Limiteverything-is-possible

When I say the sky is the limit, I mean that you can take anything and combine it with what Wealthy Affiliate teaches you and the potential will be there.

My last creation was done barely a month ago and I really am proud of this one. My latest baby is www.lithiummowers.com.  I am lithium-mowers-home-page following the eco-friendly ideas and they just seemed to be a good thing to focus on.

So we will see how things turn out by next year. I still have a long way to go as far as learning how to gain plenty of traffic but I am with one of the best programs there is and that is Wealthy Affiliate.

If my progress report showed you that a person with no experience and the help of Wealthy Affiliate can show you a way to tap into your creativeness, then you need to click below and try it for yourself.

Well, that sums up what I have done in the last 11 months. I’m not telling you that I have gotten rich but I am telling you that I am seeing income off of my websites.

This is not a get rich quick set up. This is a get rich in your ideas and dreams which will cultivate into some residual income that I know you could appreciate.

Thank you for visiting and I am truly glad to share my progress with Wealthy Affiliate. Feel free to leave questions and comments below.

Work From Home Warning

Today, many types of work from home opportunities are available and they are peaking the interest of many people.show-you-the-way

While there are some opportunities that will provide a legitimate way to earn some income, there are some that are there only to take advantage of an innocent prospect.

This post will uncover a scam and give everyone a work from home warning. I previously did a post on virtual assistant jobs and this is why I am inspired to share this post.

Beware of Fraud

When we think that a business may sound and looks legitimate, we tend to let our guard down a little bit. The average scammer knows this as well as he or she knows there are some who are not going to fall for it.

So he or she simply plays off the numbers and takes advantage of those that do.scan-danger

The work at home demographic is more likely to be targeted for a scam for a lot of factors. A lot of people who are seeking to work from home have different reasons for choosing this type of work.

That person may be homebound and have no choice. Some may have backgrounds that won’t allow them to compete outside of the home and some might want to do it by choice.

This opens the door for scammers to prey off of a person’s deep desire and will provide offers that sound good but are simply there to take advantage of someone.

BBB Gives Warningcaution

The BBB (Better Business Bureau) have received many inquires about different companies being legitimate or not.

Reason being, many scammers use claiming to be an established business to gain an edge on gaining an edge to get someone’s trust in order to deceive them.

To further strengthen their scam they will advertise these jobs on legitimate job sites like the Indeed Job Site which is very popular.

This can easily catch someone off guard because it appears to be two legitimate sources which can take your focus off of it being a scam.

Check Your Sources 

If you are going to respond to a work from home job offer, do yourself a favor and check them out really well before going all in.

You can start by checking the companies website and look at their job postings. The BBB suggest this as well as doing an online search for that job, and if it pops up in many other states with the same offer, put up the red flag before pursuing it.

Check out the video below to hear exactly what Emily Valla with the BBB has to say.

I would like to end this post on a positive note for those who desire to work from home. I believe in controlling your own destiny.

So I am going to ask you to click on this link for a free membership with Wealthy Affiliate.

They will offer you an opportunity to work from home doing what you desire without the worry of being scammed. This is done by you building your own affiliate marketing business at your leisure.

To find out more about Wealthy Affiliate’s program refer to the home page on this site. I am sure you will find it quite interesting and worth trying.

I hope this post has opened some eyes to make them aware of the possibilities that are out there that try to scam you or a loved one. Please leave any questions or comments in the comments section below.

Home Security Awareness

Home security is a great way to put at peace of mind while we sleep or are away from home. There are many companies that have been around for years that are good at protecting our homes.protected-home

This post is to expose how the market has become a battleground for companies competing for customers and I hope it will provide some good home security awareness on the subject.

Getting Home Security

When we try to obtain home security there are a few things that you must be prepared for. There are credit checks, contracts to sign and in some cases outrageous monitoring fees.personal-home-security

But a security system is a good thing to have and companies know this and are pretty sure getting customers is not that hard. The problem is what length will some companies go to get customers.

I ran across an outfit here in Oklahoma named Alder Security out of Orem, Utah that was canvassing my neighborhood. I’m not sure what other States they cover.

I am not saying that the company does not supply a good service, but their way of obtaining customers is pretty much over the top.

So I wanted to put their tactics out in the open because it is one thing to pick a company by choice than to be misled into choosing a company.

Below is a video from Inside Edition that will give you a great breakdown on how this company uses misleading tactics tp obtain new customers that put a damper on their creditability.

Me myself, am an affiliate marketer with an outstanding program & community that believes in doing business with integrity drilled into us from the beginning of our training to our success. That program is Wealthy Affiliate.

So when I experienced this company Alder Security in action, it made me appreciate the way I was trained to operate my business and that is to legitimately help someone with ethics before a sell.

Amazon Fire Stick Will Save You Money

While Amazon Firestick can save you money, it is a great addition to your household’s entertainment. The new Amazon Firestick also comes with a convenience feature which is the Alexa voice command.

Because of the high cost of cable these days, the Amazon Firestick cable-companieswill save you money by allowing you to have access to 140 channels & apps including Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Video with some or no subscription cost. If you are a Prime Member more benefits are involved.

By being Prime Member there are added benefits that come with being an Amazon Firestick owner.  Click The Banner Below to find out more and to try one month free of Amazon Prime.

Extra Features With Amazon Firestick

Some time back I posted about adding the Kodi App to an Amazon Firestick to watch movies that were recently released. This feature allows you to watch movies very shortly after they are released to the theaters.  About the same if not before Red Box Advertises them.

The post I am speaking about is Amazon Firestick Can Save You Money.  The post explained how to jailbreak the firestick to download the Kodi app.  Because of upgrades, the procedure in this post isn’t needed anymore to get Kodi.

But later in this post, we will put Kodi onto the Firestick with the new upgrades involved.

This would allow you to stream movies and download other apps movie-streamingthat are available like games, movies & other tv sources like Hulu & Netflix.

But I am going to concentrate on the Kodi app because it will save you money in a couple of ways.

First of all, I like to mention that since the last post on downloading Kodi, Amazon has made some upgrades that make it way easier and takes less time to download.

It is a newer version of Kodi also, that actually removed a lot of the glitches that people were facing. It also installs faster with the new upgrade.

How Does It Save Me Money? 

I love watching movies but going to the theaters is very expensive these days. With the help of the Kodi app, I am able to see these movies pretty quickly after their release by streaming them.saving-money

Now I am saving money on theater tickets and the high cost of theater concessions as well.

Another thing I am saving on is renting movies from Red Box. Which use to be the quickest way to see the newly released movies that are available.

Now I am seeing the same movies as Red Box offer through my Amazon Firestick without having to worry about the late return charges that I always got stuck with.

Those are the two ways that I have been saving money since I have been using the Kodi app.

How To Download The Kodi Appdownload-app

The first thing is you are going to need is an Amazon Firestick. They are a newer version than what I have because now they have the voice command Alexa that they come with as an upgrade.

But if you have an older one like I have, it still will work as if you had the newer one without the voice command. This is because the operation system has been upgraded automatically in them.

This made downloading Kodi much easier so you can start enjoying the savings as you gain more features you can enjoy at home.

Below are two videos which show you how to easily download Kodi onto your Amazon Firestick. There is a video for the older one and the newer one.

So if you do not have an Amazon Firestick I encourage you to Click Here to get one and once you get it follow the instructions in the video below.

Downloading Kodi On the Older Version Of Amazon Firestick

Downloading Kodi On The Newer Version With Alexa

Thank you for visiting and I hope I have provided someone with a way to add some pleasure in their household and save some money at the same time.
