What are the advantages of working from home?

Going to work in an office can be stressful and costly for both employee and employer.  Thanks to technology many people have the option of working from home (or off-site at that warm beach somewhere!).  For consultants and freelancers there are obvious reasons why you should work from home (you might not have another choice anyway!) but for full-time employees there are financial and personal advantages to working at least a couple days per week from home.  Not every profession allows for this flexibility but if yours is one of the many that do, here are some benefits to look into for both employer and employee.

  • Increased productivity

When employees have more time to be with their families or to do things for themselves, they’re happier people.  Happier people are less stressed out and are less likely to make mistakes.  Happier people are more productive, which leads to more work done and more money saved.  This I learned from Lisa Irby, my online mentor (great lady, by the way!), but in reading an article at money articles some supervisors see the productivity value in flexibility as well.  One supervisor mentions that employees are more committed to a company that allows them to have flexible schedules.  Another manager explains that having employees with flexible schedules is an advantage to her because that way her company may expand its working hours to better cater to the 24/7 business cycle in which it works.
If you’ve never thought of working from home but your company offers this option, you might be interested in finding out how such arrangement works out for you.  If your company doesn’t have a work-from-home program, you may be in a position to ask your boss about this arrangement.

  • Spending time with your children Thirty five hours per week at work (40+ for Americans) plus commuting time all adds up to time not spent with your children.  Both you and your children will be happier if you spend more time with them.  But you can always ask your children what they think.In my own experience, I feel very lucky I had my dad around when I was a child.  Due to his working schedule, Dad spent half days at home and it was just awesome to see him around!  He could just be taking care of our dog or taking a nap before his next shift but there was a very warm feeling in knowing that Dad was around to take care of me if I needed him.
  • Reduced health insurance costs:Employees who have more flexibility in their schedules tend to be happier people because they may arrange their schedule to include running errands, taking care of their children and getting enough rest and exercise. It can also be possible for you to meet up with meetings with the Doctor or medical check ups. I believe when we do go the office, working from day to evening almost 8-12hrs. There won't be so much time to book personal meetings with doctors because there's few time and there are also enough things to be done at work the next day. So why not just, put down some time and do some work, yes it might not be easy writing contents on your website. But sacrifice that time and think about the future product. Remember if your website has enough content and traffic, google gives the honor of ranking you on the first page of every search concerned to your website content. After making a search, check below you'll see something like this{ About 148,000,000 results (0.26 seconds 

    After viewing all this kind of result, imagine you on the first page,and i believe you'll earn a living from striving to put your site as NO.1 on google. With this you can sleep for a whole year and still make money meaning you can make money while sleeping. Making money from home is the best thing that has happened to me. Because i remember myself wishing of been my own Boss someday, i guess that someday is nowadays. I making a hell of a living from working online. Though i put so much effort to, i believe that's why i'm now in this condition. Nothing good comes easy, so you have to work for what ever it is that you want. And in this case its money that you want, i also needed money now i have enough money. It's really interesting to sit at home with your family and make money, the family enjoys and life still moves on interesting without any fear of been sacked from work, going early, and all those problems. Starting an online business automatically means you have your own personal company that generates money. Isn't that interesting? One more at home working is not all about rushing.

Mine was to make money, now i have a site guiding people and submitting tips on how to make money, but that isn't all, there are books, e-books, articles, how to videos, tips and hows, there are so many books out there provided for you to learn and act fast.

    How to Make Working at Home Work: A Banker-Turned-Entrepreneur's Story

    "I really didn't want a 'real job.' I wanted to work for myself," Bill Buckley recalls. "And I loved working from home."

    That was 1995, after Buckley had spent 25 years in the banking industry. He did a 180 to become the first U.S. franchisee of Coffee News, working out of two rooms in his home in Bangor, Maine, to produce free weekly newspapers for local restaurants.

    A lot has changed in 16 years. Buckley went from franchisee to U.S. sub-franchisor in 1996, and to owner and CEO of the entire company in 2008. But one thing hasn't changed: He's still working from home.

    "It gives me the flexibility to do all the other things I want to do in my life," Buckley says. "I work whenever I have things to do, and when I don't, it's all free time."

    Being able to skip the commute and make his own schedule means more time playing tennis, golfing and going to car shows with his wife, Coffee News vice president Sue-Ann Buckley.

    But that doesn't mean being a home-based franchisor is all play and no work. "I work just as hard--if not harder and longer--here at home than I would if I were in an office," Buckley says. "We have close to 400 franchisees around the world, so I have 400 bosses. When they call, I sit up at attention. You have to be responsive."

    Buckley makes sure his 400 "bosses" get all the same support a non-home-based franchisor would provide. Every eight weeks he takes over a local hotel to offer new franchisees a three-day training session. After that they're assigned a mentor and given a free website, software package and access to an online chat group so they're never on their own.

    "It's all perception. My office tower today is my web page," Buckley says. "When you call, you don't know whether you're calling an office building in New York City or a farm in the middle of nowhere. That's the new normal."

    Make Money with Google's Affiliate Program-Adsense

    Thank goodness for programs like Google Adsense. This is a slightly different type of affiliate program because you don't have to get your visitors to buy anything.
    You simply help Google advertise by displaying some text ads on your pages and they pay you for every click each ad receives. Thanks to Google's technology the ads that will be displayed match your site's content.
    So if your site is about baby toys, the ads that show up will relate to that topic, thus improving the click-thru percentage. The more pages of content you have, the greater the earning potential for programs like this.
    I use Adsense on three of my websites and I am quite pleased with the results.

    Unfortunately, a lot of people bought into the idea that there was a lot of easy money to be made and they are now finding out they aren't making nearly as much as they thought they would. Additionally, Google has a lot of prohibited practices when it comes to AdSense, and too many Webmasters are finding out they violated Google's policies after the fact - often because they never bothered to read the AdSense policies in the first place.
    Webmasters must not only comply with AdSense policies, but their Websites must also comply with Google's webmaster policies.
    Prerequisites for Making Money with AdSense
    To make money with Google AdSense you need plenty of traffic coming in to your site or there won't be anyone to click the ads. Website promotion techniques, especially search engine optimization and article marketing will bring more traffic to your site. You also need to have content that will attract the ads with the highest Pay Per Click (PPC) rate that are relevant to that content. Then, you need to lay out your web pages so the ads blend in with your site. Studies have revealed that people who visit sites that contain ads that use colors that are not in harmony with the actual Web site tend to develop "ad blindness". Meaning no matter how much traffic comes into your site, chances are no one will click the ads because they'll be ignoring them. If no one clicks, you make nothing.

    Dealing with Competitors' Advertisements
    If you offer products or services on your Website, the first thing you'll notice when you begin hosting PPC ads is that many of the ads are coming from your competitors. Therefore, you'll want to put ads on pages that aren't earning you any money, or do like I did and not put ads on your site until you're so busy anyway you'd rather make a few dollars off of your competitors than to continue turning business away with nothing to show for it.
    Google AdSense allows you to specify up to 200 URLs for sites you want to bar from placing ads on your pages. The problem is that most times you won't know the competitors are out there until their ads appear.
    Google Money Making Ad Options
    Google offers three ways to make money from them:
    Google AdSense for Content - A variety of size and shape ads for placing in your content are available. These can be text or image ads or both - you specify what you'll allow. Ad units are full ads. Link units are simply a strip of text links that your visitors might want to click. Google allows you to put up to 3 Ad Units and 1 Link unit on each page of your Web site, provided you follow its policies - both for AdSense and for Webmasters.
    Google AdSense for Search - This places a search box on your Web site. When a user enters a term and conducts a search, a search results page opens, that hosts more pay-per-click ads. You can customize the color scheme of the search results page to harmonize with your web site.
    Google Referrals - Here you make money by referring visitors to use a Google product, like AdSense, AdWords, the Google Toolbar and other Google software. Just like Google AdSense for Content and AdSense for Search, Google generates the code that you paste into the desired location on your web page. You can choose from a wide variety of buttons and text links of different colors. As an example of how Google Referrals works, if someone goes to your site and clicks the link and signs up for an AdSense account, when that person earns a $100 from Google AdSense and receives a payout from Google, you'll also receive $100 for referring them. This is a great idea to me, because you can be the world's worst Google AdSense advertiser, but if an ad dynamo happens to visit your site and uses your referral link, you
    can make money anyway!

    Google AdSense Payments
    Google will not issue an AdSense payment until your earnings exceed $100. Unfortunately, there are loads of Google AdSense Forum entries about website operators who accumulated $90 or more in click through earnings only to get banned from Google and not get paid anything at all before they ever reached $100. This may be because Google doesn't take a close look to see if you're complying with their guidelines until it comes time to pay you. So yes, there's a lot more to the story than meets the eye.

    Top Tips On Making Money On The Internet

    The first step is to stop Googling things like, "how to make money online." Not because you shouldn't want to make money online, but because the stuff you're going to find by doing that is going to help you lose money online. Sort of like asking a casino owner how to make money in Vegas...
    Lisa Irby Shares Her Success Story 

    Don't pay anyone for simple and proven instructions on how to achieve this goal. In particular, don't pay anyone to teach you how to write or sell manuals or ebooks about how to make money online.
    Get rich slow.
    Focus on the scarce resource online: attention. If you try to invent a way to take cheap attention and turn it into cash, you will fail. The attention you want isn't cheap, it's difficult to get via SEO and it rarely scales. Instead, figure out how to earn expensive attention.
    In addition to attention, focus on trust. Trust is even more scarce than attention.
    Don't worry so much about the 'online' part. Instead, figure out how to create value. The online part will take care of itself.
    Don't quit your day job. Start evenings and weekends and figure it out with small failures.
    Build a public reputation. A good one, and be sure that you deserve it, and that it will hold up to scrutiny.
    Obsessively specialize. No niche is too small if it's yours.
    Connect the disconnected.

    Build an online legacy that increases in value daily.
    Make money offline. If you can figure out how to create value face to face, it's a lot easier to figure out how to do the same digitally. The web isn't magic, it's merely efficient.
    Become the best in the world at something that people value. Easier said than done, worth more than you might think.
    Hang out with people who aren't looking for shortcuts. Learn from them.
    Fail. Fail often and fail cheaply. This is the very best gift the web has given to people who want to bootstrap their way into a new business.
    Make money in the small and then relentlessly scale.
    Don't chase yesterday's online fad.
    Think big, act with intention and don't get bogged down in personalities. If it's not on your agenda, why are you wasting time on it?
    Learn. Ceaselessly. Learn to code, to write persuasively, to understand new technologies, to bring out the best in your team, to find underused resources and to spot patterns.
    This is not a zero sum game. The more you add to your community, the bigger your piece gets. Please comment after reading. Thank You
