Why Work From Home?

Why work from home? Simple. You become your own boss when you work from home!

In other words, you are in total control of your time, your working schedule and your business. Therefore, you take no orders from no one and are not responsible or answerable to anyone but yourself.

But, that is not the only reason why you should begin a home based business. There are stronger more compelling reasons. As a matter of fact, I will give you 10 strong and compelling reasons in this article.

Believe me, by the time you finish reading this article, you will be highly motivated to start your own home based business without further delay.

The 10 stronger more compelling reasons why you should work from home are as follows:

1. Build a Solid Multiple Income Streams

The first reason why you should really consider working from home is that a home based business allows you to engage in multiple line of home based business opportunities at the same time,

Consequently, you can generate multiple streams of income from different line of home business opportunities with ease.

For instance, you can place Google adverts (referred to as AdSense) on your website.

At the same time, you can write e-books, create informational videos, sell physical goods, and even offer your professional consulting services on your home based business.

And it keeps getting better. Even if you do not have any products to sell and do not intend to create any, you can still make money online by tapping into the efforts of other people and big organisations.

All you do is simply register with them, complete the registration formalities, offer their products and services on your online business and you immediately begin earning money online as an affiliate marketer.

2. Access to Larger Potential Customers

A second reason why you should really consider working from home is that you have unlimited access to a larger potential customers than it is ever possible with an offline business.

This reason is perhaps the most compelling of all the reasons you should have a home based business. This is so because your online business opens you and your company to the world. In other words, your online business allows you showcase your business to a global market of about 6 billion persons.

With this wonderful advantage over offline business, this opens up more opportunities for making money online than if you have a small business that is located in a small corner, on a small street - no matter how busy the street may be - in a small town of a developing country in Africa.

3. Allows You to Prepare for Early Retirement

Working from home is a great way to prepare and plan for early retirement. This is because a home based business does not interfere in any way with your regular office job.

Moreover, with the poor pension scheme and recurring delay in payment of gratuities and other retirement benefits in Nigeria, Nigerian workers, especially civil servants, cannot hope to have anything to fall back on as pension and gratuity when the inevitable day of retirement eventually comes calling.

It is a course of wisdom, therefore, for all Nigerian workers to have a home based business as a means of preparing for retirement.

4. Reduced Overhead Operational Cost

Another significant reason why you should work from home is that there is reduced operational cost for home based businesses.

In the first place, you do not need a huge capital outlay to start a business from home.

With less than $30 (US dollars) or N5,000 (NGN), you can actually get the domain name for your home business registered and hosted on the worldwide web with a reputable web host and your business will be online in less than 6 hours.

Additionally, since no physical products are stocked and sold, no warehouse space is needed and, as such, no further cost is expended on rent or lease of warehouse space.

Similarly, since no additional employees are required to carry out the day-to-day operations of the business, no expenses are incurred on workers' salaries, rent of office premises or on the purchasing of office equipment and machinery for the business.

In the same vein, you do not have to spend large amounts to manufacture and store inventory or need to take and process a single order, or worry about getting paid. You do not have to handle or ship a product -- your merchants do that for you.

You do not even need a merchant account. You simply judge and pick from the best and excellent products available, from the best available merchants. Thereafter, you simply send people to your affiliated merchants, then get paid when they buy.

Working from home also means that you will never have to answer customer e-mail (inquiries and support are 24/7 issues that can easily eat up 50% of your day).

From the foregoing, it is obvious that the cost of building and launching a business from home is quite affordable by almost everyone.

5. Best for Rapid Business Expansion

A fifth significant reason why you should work from home is that it is the most suitable strategy for rapid business expansion in the 21st century. This makes it the best form of information dissemination apparatus that you can make use of for taking your offline business to greater heights.

Additionally, you can also take advantage of advanced technology to reduce the cost of web publishing by using PDF e-book publishing, as well as online marketing through the integration of shopping cart and an online payment acceptance system.

Additionally, a home based business is by far cheaper to use for advertisement purposes than all other mass media put together. Once an a home business has been set up, it usually does not require any other funds to keep it operational.

Also, the fact that a home based business is always accessible and available worldwide all the time makes it the best possible form of information dissemination that anyone can use to promote his or her offline business. But, compare that to the cost of advertising in a national newspaper or on national TV or Radio. Which do you think is cheaper?

Furthermore, unlike other forms of information dissemination, a home based business is easily updated and diversified. The expensive production costs of video, and the editing time needed for a good advertisement, makes home based businesses even more attractive. Plus, video can be provided and printed materials can be made available for instant download on a home business site.

Equally important, printed materials on a home business site save you the cost of printing and mailing them to your website visitors. Also, your website can have even more impact if graphical illustrations such as movements and animation are used to illustrate various aspects of the site.

6. Get Paid in Foreign Currency

A sixth strong reason why you should work from home is that your home based business opens up an opportunity for getting paid in superior foreign currency. How so?

As a result of having access to a global market, you have the opportunity of doing business with companies and organisations of other more advanced countries.

Consequently, you are better opportune to receive superior wages for your products and / or services because of your home based business.

To illustrate, assuming that two men wish to pay you some amount of money for a business transaction that was conducted between those men and yourself. One wish to pay you N5,000, while the other one desire to pay you $250 (US dollars).

With an exchange rate of about N170 to one dollar, that automatically translates to N42,500. So, which of them would you value more and be more inclined to do business with now and in the future? Is it not the one that is willing to pay you in American dollars? Yes, of course!

7. It is Always Open for Business

Another strong reason why you should work from home is that your home based business is always open for business.

Every single second, every single minute, every single hour, every single day of every single year, your home based business is always open for business and automatically attending to the needs and demands of your site's visitors without fail.

In other words, your home based business is always open for business and always accessible to everyone anywhere across the globe at any time of the day all through the year.

That is to say that your home based business never goes on break irrespective of the time of the day or the day of the year - even at night or during weekends and holiday periods.

8. It is Multitasking

The greatest advantage which a home based business (with an online presence) have over an offline business is that it is multitasking in nature.

What I mean by this is that your home based business can do many of the activities relating to the business, such as registering e-mail subscribers in a mailing list, sending autoresponders mails, taking orders, accepting payments and taking deliveries of products to clients of the company all by itself.

What this invariably means is that having a home based business cuts the physical work attached to your business by over 50% - thereby freeing up more time for you to engage in leisure or any other activities.

As a result of this characteristic of a home based business, many persons find it enjoyable to work at home without employing additional hands to take care of their business for them. This sort of business model is known as a Work-At-Home-Model (WAHM).

Indeed, the multitasking nature and 24/7 availability on the internet is the most interesting thing about having a home based business.

9. Place Your Business On Autopilot

One of the most beneficial reasons why you should have an online business is that you can place your home based business on complete autopilot.

Do you not find it amazing that as you read this line I may be sleeping, eating, bathing, playing, attending to the needs of my family at home or performing some other activity not related to my home based business? Indeed, you should!

Can I perform all those activities mentioned above simultaneously while attending to my business if it were offline in nature? Can I divide myself into several persons and perform those activities at the same time as I am conducting my business, if it were offline in nature? Of course not.

Now compare that with an offline business - a business which has a physical location at a particular street in a small corner of the globe.

Is it not true that in order to do all the activities relating to my offline business and still have time to attend to my personal concerns I would have to employ additional hands to take care of certain aspects of my offline business? Yes, of course!

10. Your Online Business As Your Front Office

The final strong reason why you should have a home based business is that your online business serve as the front office of your offline business. Consequently, you can showcase the various products and services of your company on your online business.

As a result of this, your potential clients can carry out product and services sampling, otherwise known as window shopping in office parlance and compare your services and products with those of your competitors before they eventually decide to make a purchase. They can conveniently do so anonymously at the comfort of their homes.

Additionally, you can establish a strong brand of your business as an authority with your online business visitors. They can thus judge your brand objectively and assess it in comparison with the brands of other online businesses.

Consequently, your potential clients will take you seriously because you have an online presence for your offline business and will quickly develop a high level of trust and confidence in you and your business. Once this is achieved, your visitors become more inclined to patronise you.
