Residual Income Home Business

A lot of people are looking to start home businesses these days. What seems to be the most popular business type are the ones that pay a residual income. These types of businesses are gaining momentum because it allows business owners to make one sale but get paid over and over again.

Finding a business that pays on this type of commission structure can be a struggle at first because it may take a while to find affiliate programs that pay a residual income. Doing a search online can help narrow the search but it is still wise to really investigate any program before you sign up and especially before you start promoting it.

The reason residual income businesses are so great to promote is because they let you essentially do the job once but still see money from that sale for long after that. It has been called that best business model because you are able to put down a solid financial foundation on which your lifetime wealth can be built.

Picture for a minute that starting and promoting a residual income business is like erecting a house. Within business models that don’t pay a residual income when you make a sale then you only make one check. Do you think this one check will help hold up the foundation of your new wealth house? The answer is no, but in a residual income pay structure you’ll be able to create multiple streams of income and lay a very strong foundation for your new house of wealth.

Running a business that pays on a residual basis allows you to enjoy more freedom too. You could be on vacation for days, months, and even years and still enjoy the benefits of residual income because you would have made those sales some time ago, and you’d still be getting paid.

When friends and family express interest in starting their own home business I always tell them that residual income businesses have the best business models.

Home Business ideas

If you’ve spent any time researching on the internet, you’ll have found hundreds of ideas for businesses to start from home. How do you find out which ones are scams and which ones are genuine ways to make money? Keep reading and researching.

Anyone who promises that you can earn quick money in just a few weeks, but requires you to pay them large sums of money first, is probably best avoided.

Any genuine home business opportunity will take time and effort to build up, but we’ve all heard stories of people who are now earning a good income, and some who have given up work completely, by starting home businesses.

One of the easiest and cheapest, even free, ways to start a home business is by using the opportunities afforded by the internet. This can be a low cost option, as there are minimal overheads, your main requirement being a computer and an internet connection.

Ebay reselling – either buying low and selling high – clearing out items from your loft or garage, or using the dropshipping directories now available to buy direct and sell on via Ebay.

Google Adsense – setting up content websites with Google AdSense code and getting paid for every visitor that clicks on one of your ads. There are people making money with this, the outlay is minimal and the potential is huge.

Google Adwords – this is a real art, but there are some people making good money. If you are good with words, then this could be for you. By setting up a Google AdWords campaign and directing traffic to an Affiliate site, such as an Ebook, it is possible to make money. By the way, it’s also possible to spend a lot of money without making even one sale. If you’re considering this option, I’d recommend buying one of the very good ebooks available on the subject, and learn from the experts.

Affiliate Sales – if you are a good sales person and feel that you could write good copy online, this could be your opportunity to make money. Not for the faint hearted, the highest paid “super affiliates” are making hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Consider that 20% of the people are making 80% of the money and you’ll know that you’ll need to do some good research before you get started. The only option for this is Rosalind Gardners, “Super Affiliate Handbook”, which is a comprehensive manual to everything you need to know on the subject of affiliate marketing.

Write your own Ebook – at one time or another, most of us have thought of this, but have we taken it any further? If you are an expert in an area, or are a good writer, then this could be an option for you. I know of one person who is making a good living from selling a scrapbooking ebook, so this could be a way to make money from your hobby!

Home surveys – find out about genuine surveys that you can carry out for national companies. This can often be a simple survey that you carry out by visiting a shop, restaurant, or similar venue and must be completed online.

Writing articles & webcontent – if you are one of those people that finds writing easy, be thankful. There are many people out there with the skills to set up a successful website, but who haven’t a clue when it comes to writing the content on their web pages. Often times, this is contracted out via companies like and you can bid for the opportunity to write for them.

Expect to Succeed With Your Home Business

What do you expect out of yourself? Do you expect to succeed with your home business and financial goals, or do you have the feeling that you will most likely fail?

Expectation rules our lives. We inevitably get what we expect whether it be the best or the worst. It seems an all to common problem that people, when starting home business, actually expect to fail. Expecting to fail leads to failure, there is no way around this fact. The good news is, however, that if you can muster up the confidence and expect success…it will only be a matter of time until you do.

First let’s figure out why expectation is so critical. It’s ultimately a matter of attention. Where we place our attention greatly determines where we end up. If you expect to fail at starting a home business, even though you truly desire all the benefits, where is your attention going? It’s going to the obstacles, the barriers, the often tedious duties of working online, and to the disappointment when results take longer than expected.

What happens to your motivation when you are focusing all your attention on these negative experiences? Well it invariably plummets. How could it not? If all you think about are the downsides, the trials, the seemed failures….what’s going to keep you going long enough to succeed. Building any business, whether it be an online home business or a “brick and mortar” offline business, takes time. There is a certain gestation period, a period of growth that is inescapable.

Depending on the nature of the business and the competition of your market, it could take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years before you begin turning any substantial profits. Sticking it out is something that the majority DOES NOT DO. People are way to easy to through in the towel; quitting always seems to be the popular choice.

Quitting is the only way to fail…. If you never quit, and continue to pursue your goals with enthusiasm, dedication, and positive expectation, you will become UNSTOPPABLE. So what then separates the quitters with the people who become unstoppable?

Well here we come back to the topic of discussion…..EXPECTATION. The unstoppable ones, the brave individuals that continue on no matter what hurdles stand before them, have had a positive expectation to succeed. From the very start of their home business building journey, they knew that they were going to succeed, they expected the best.

The attention of these people isn’t on the obstacles, the work, or the delays. Nope, their attention is on the goal, the finish line, the rewards and benefits of sticking it out till the end. They meet obstacles with a positive attitude. They find ways over, around, or through them. They have to…they expect to succeed.

It’s obvious then why any pursuit must be began with the expectation of success. If you think your going to fail, you will look for reasons to make failure your reality. When you decide that you will succeed no matter what, you will look for opportunities to excel. We create for ourselves a self-fulfilled prophecy. Begin any journey with confidence, a lot of motivation, and a firm expectation to succeed. This is a great recipe for success.

We can see one of the ingredients to this recipe is motivation. What motivates you? An easy way to stay motivated is to constantly think of the rewards of success rather than the penalties of failure. Use your imagination, daydream, get excited, and feel the feelings of success. If you can feel the emotions of reaching your goals, you will carry with you a constant supply of motivation that will allow you to take one more step, try one more solution, and persist for one more day.

In the end you will have taken your home business farther than 99% of people, because you will not have given up when success may have been just around the next bend. We never know the exact timing of the completion of our goals…and there is only one way to find out. You must persist long enough to find out for yourself. Expect the best, expect success, expect to enjoy the blessings of a thriving home based business, and you will find it all. We always find what we are looking for, and we are inevitably looking for that which we expect. What are you looking for?
