The Customer Advantage is a great new idea/web startup in pre-launch right now. I’ve watched it grow from 4,800 members to almost 25,000 in the last month. I believe it will continue to grow and will grow faster and faster as the word gets out. Why? Because it’s such a tremendous idea!
The new header is the Crazy Horse Memorial being carved in the Black Hills of South Dakota near Mount Rushmore. You can see what it should look like when finished in this picture at wikipedia.
eBay is probably the quickest way to make money from home. If you have stuff to sell that others want to buy, whether new or used, you can usually make sales within a couple of days depending upon how you set up your auction. But, unless you’ve really got a LOT of stuff sitting around that you need to sell and it’s selling well, you probably aren’t going to make a lot of money quickly with eBay.
With that said, there are a lot of people that are making a great living selling on eBay. Many people use eBay as an extension of their brick and mortar or online store. Unless you are selling foods, guns, or something else that eBay forbids, there is really not a good reason to not take advantage of the marketing power of eBay. Of course, some items will sell better than others, but there are really not items to small or too big – from jewelry to cars and from tools to antiques – most all types of items can be sold on eBay.
If you have a lot of knowledge in a particular area, or if you are dedicated to becoming the expert in a particular area, or even if you are good at pulling the right experts together, you can create a membership site. Or better yet, you just have to build a community around members who are interested in talking about the same topic. Once your community gets big enough and has enough valuable information to make it a ‘members only’ community, you can start charging a monthly subscription.
Item Number 4 on my list of 10 Ways to Make Money From Home (or anywhere) With Your Computer is becoming a Virtual Assistant. One of the buzzwords in the business world is ‘outsourcing’. Many business professionals, small businesses, and entrepreneurs are outsourcing all kinds of projects so becoming a Virtual Assistant can be very profitable.
Many small businesses, sole proprietors and entrepreneurs can’t afford to hire employees. They don’t want the overhead of employment taxes, health insurance, benefits, and the other expenses that come along with hiring full-time employees. Not only that, but many don’t need anyone full-time – they only need someone for a few hours a day, week or month.
My favorite way to make money from home is still The Customer Advantage. It has the best affiliate program I’ve seen.
Today’s new header is another from the Badlands of South Dakota during our recent trip across the US. I want to do it again soon.
