Setting Up Your Home Office

Setting up your home office when you work from home is very important. It will help you stay organized, keep you on track, and generally make you more productive. When I first started working from home, I kept everything in a collection of notebooks, and worked in my easy chair. While it's comfortable to be able to do so, it's advisable to have either an area of a room or an entirely separate room that is designated as your work space.

So what do you need in your work area? Obviously, this will depend on the type of work that you do. Some work at home moms may have need of special office equipment, while others will be able to make due with just a phone and computer. Generally speaking, though, there are a number of items that every home office should have.

First of all, you'll need a desk of some kind. If you don't have an actual computer desk, just use a table or some available counter space. This should be where you actually sit while you're working. Be sure you have room for you to write, store your records, and that you have a healthy supply of paper and pens or pencils.

Secondly, make sure you have a calendar handy. This can be a wall calendar, a desk version, or a handy datebook. I actually use both a wall calendar and a datebook, so I can keep track of all my appointments even if I'm not at my desk. Of course, you also have to make sure you're actually using your calendar...there have been a number of times that I have forgotten to write down a due date or appointment, and that can cause a lot of problems!

The third thing your home office should have is a telephone with an answering machine. If you're going to be talking to clients or customers on a regular basis, this is an absolute must. It's a good idea to get a second line if you plan to be doing a lot of business calls. That way you won't miss a call, either on your personal home line or your business line. Be sure you have a professional greeting recorded on your answering machine.

You should also have room for a task list in your home office area. I know this may sound like a no-brainer, but seriously...each morning before you begin work, create your task list for the day. You'll be surprised at how much this will help your productivity! I started doing this, and was able to get much more done in less time!

A fax machine is a definite must. This is useful for faxing contracts, tax forms, and other types of communications that require signatures or timely information. It's a great time saver if you ever find yourself needing to fax a document; you won't need to interrupt your work day to run to Office Max!

I know what you're thinking...this all sounds like common sense, right? In a traditional office, you would find all of this stuff and more. But, many people (myself included) think of working at home, and instantly think that it's much more relaxed, and you can even work in your pajamas. Well, yes and no. You can work in your pajamas, for sure, (although I have found that my productivity level is best when I get dressed & ready for the day prior to beginning work) but you still have to maintain a certain level of professionalism. Without that professionalism, you will never succeed at working at home.

How To Rank #1 in Google

I found this super cute (and pretty accurate too!) poem on how to rank #1 in Google. Here are the first few lines, but be sure to read the entire ranking poem!!

How many links to get to #1 Google?
Do I blast out an xrumer OR try and be frugal?
I’ve heard that backlinks are king, is it true?
And can I do it on my website that’s brand new?
Tell me do I use the exact anchor phrase?
Or when it comes to linking are there better ways?

Work at Home as a Game Tester

A popular new work at home job is game testing. A game tester gets copies of new and upcoming games, plays them, and lets the developers know of any problems or quirks within the game. Sound like fun? Here are some ideas for finding game testing opportunities.

Go to a job conference. Game developers have job conferences throughout the United States that will offer a variety of available positions, including game testing opportunities. By attending these conferences, you can make valuable contacts that will give you an “in” to the game testing arena. These contacts can let you know of new testing opportunities as well as offer advice on resume structuring.

Search the Internet. Keep in mind that there are a lot of scams out there (as with anything else). Check out the big name game developers; by going directly to the developer, you can rest assured that any game tester opportunities are legitimate.

Subscribe to a variety of gaming magazines. You’ll usually find a lot of listings for game testers. It will also help keep you up to date on new gaming developments and news, increasing your knowledge of the gaming field while allowing you to talk to the developers intelligently. This is a great way to find game testing work.

According to the International Game Developers lists, the average salary for a game tester is $37,210 a year! Not bad for playing video games, huh? This salary is the average for inexperienced game testers; the more experience you have, the more you make! A common starting rate for game testers is $15 an hour.

What’s even better is that the company provides everything you need; there isn’t any need to go spend tons of money on equipment or supplies to be a game tester. The reason they provide everything is to provide a consistency to the results. They want everyone who’s testing the games to have the same conditions, so the platforms and equipment used aren’t factors to any issues that may exist within the game.

Do you think a position as a game tester may be for you? Check it out, and see what work at home positions you can find!

Make Money Online Free!

If you're frantically searching for a way to make money online, chances are you don't have a lot, if any, money to invest. Most home business opportunities have an up-front investment, and many online money making schemes are scams.

Luckily, there are legitimate FREE ways for you to make money online. One way is to become an affiliate and set up a blog promoting a product or service.

A Free Blog

Let's start off with the blog side of things. There are a few different sites that offer free blogs: WordPress and Blogger are just 2 of them. Personally, I recommend Blogger, only because it offers more features for you to make money.

Choosing a Niche for Your Blog

Is there a topic you are exceptionally passionate about? Remember, making money online is possible, but you have to work at it. In this case, one of the things you're going to have to do on a regular basis is write blog entries. This will be a lot easier to do if you are interested in the topic.

So what are your hobbies? What do you like to do? Are you an avid reader? Create a blog about your favorite books. If you like making things, start a craft blog. If you're a gardener, start a gardening blog. The trick is to find a topic that you truly enjoy.

Another option is to pick one product or service that you are particularly impressed with. Then you can see if they have an affiliate program, and start a blog around that product or service. Remember, however, that it's your reputation on the line, so make sure you don't blindly recommend products or services; do so only if you have personal experience with it.

Choosing a Name for Your Blog

Once you've chosen a blog platform and a topic, you will need a descriptive name for your blog. Try to choose something that has to do with what you're blogging about. Don't just name it "Susan's blog". If you're doing a gardening blog, you could name it "Susan's Gardening Tips" or something like that.

Most blogging platforms give you a subdomain, so it will look like this: "". If you're offering garden tips, name it something like "". Your Blog name & domain name should be the same. In other words, if the Title at the top of your blog is going to be "Susan's Gardening Tips" use that as the subdomain as well.

Finding an Affiliate Program

So far, you have chosen your blog platform, your niche, and your blog's name. And, you haven't spent a single dime! :-)

Now it's time to find an affiliate product or service to promote. There are many places to find affiliate programs: Amazon, Commission Junction, Google Affiliates, Clickbank, etc. Research to see what programs they have available in your niche. You can search by topic, keywords, product name or company name.

Alternatively, if you have a favorite product, company or service, you can contact them to see if they offer an affiliate program. Express to them how much you love their product, and often you can work something out.

The Hard Work Begins

Once you've got this far, it's time to choose a design and write some content. That's the easy part. After your blog is created and you have some content, it's time to work on SEO. You need to get your site out there so you get visitors; and that means you need links. Let me know if you have any questions; I'll be glad to help!

The Geostring Scam

Recently I came across a site called "Geostring". It says that if you register for a FREE account, you will get paid $10! Then, you can earn even more money by signing up more people underneath you (yeah, the traditional pyramid set-up).

Sound too good to be true? Yeah, that's what I thought too...but, I was going to sign up and test it out, so I could tell you if it was good or not.
Notice I said I WAS going to test it out...until I read their privacy policy. You want to know why this money-making scheme is free? Because they're collecting all of your information, and that of the people you sucker into this, and SELLING IT.
I couldn't understand why they wanted my mailing address, phone number and email address...seemed like a lot, considering all they were going to do was EMAIL me a newsletter once a week with some sponsor ads. I decided to read their Privacy Policy to see what they were doing with this information.
Here is the text from Geostring's Privacy Policy, telling you how they use your personal information:

Unfortunately, too many people don't read the Privacy Policies on programs such as these, so they get taken in. Personally, I don't appreciate getting tons and tons of junk mail, and the thought that someone is selling my information really makes me mad!

If you don't want your full name, mailing address, phone number and email address sold, DO NOT sign up for the Geostring scam.

Don't Believe Everything You Read

Perhaps one of the biggest reasons so many people are unsuccessful at getting their websites ranking well is that they believe everything they read on the Internet. Think about that logically for a minute: if SEO information was readily available to everyone on the Internet, then everyone would be in competition with everyone, and there wouldn't be a need for SEO experts.

This is why it really bothers me when someone asks for my help then doesn't want me to do my job because they "read online that it doesn't work". Well, guess what? I know what I'm doing! That's why you hired me!

So how do you learn what SEO tactics work, and what ones don't? It's easy...the most effective way is to join an exclusive SEO community such as SEO Book. Aaron Wall has incredibly valuable information, and offers many tools to help you with your SEO quest.

Web Marketing Now and SEO Revolution are 2 more great resources for useful and effective SEO tactic information.

Trial and error are options; in fact, that's how a lot of us find out what works and what doesn't.

If you don't want to take the time for the learning curve, hire someone who knows what they're doing to do it for you. This is great for those who want quick results to improve their business.

Just remember that about 99% of information freely available on the Internet about SEO is bogus.

Tips for Blog Commenting

Wow! It has been a while since I've posted anything on here. Sorry, faithful readers! I will try to be more diligent from now on. :-)

I wanted to comment today about blog have no idea how many *spam* comments I read on a daily blog commenting can really help you build your site up, both with links and with getting visitors to your site. BUT site owners aren't going to approve you if your comment doesn't lend any value to the post.

The purpose of blog commenting is to engage the audience, and encourage discussion on the topic at hand. Leaving generic comments such as "Great post" or spamming with a generic

Hey I just bought a spiderman costume for my kid and he loved it!

well...let's face it; this comment lends absolutely NOTHING to a discussion about the price of tea in China. And, it's not going to inspire people to visit your site either...but if you leave a comment on a post about dobermans, and you mention something specific from the blogger's entry and say something related to what the post is, you should be able to get your comment approved.

The On Demand Global Workforce - oDesk

Sometimes you can even get away with using a keyword instead of your name; this will only work IF and ONLY IF your comment offers value to the discussion at hand.

Personally, I delete any and all comments left on my blogs that have nothing to do with my post. If there are links in the comment, I delete the entire comment. If the comment doesn't specifically mention something I said in my post, I will delete the comment.

So yes, blog commenting can help you build links and get visitors to your site, but be smart about it. Before you begin typing, think about what type of comment YOU would want on your site.

Make Money Fast Online!

If you want to make a lot of money, and make it fast, play the lottery and hope for the best...if you want to build up some residual income, there are many ways to do so. It all depends on WHAT you want to do.

Fast Online Money Making

A fast way for you to make money online is to sell things...are you a crafter? If you enjoy making crafts, you can make money fast online by selling them. You can open your own online crafts store or sell at many of the craft shows. Check out the following link for more information on where to sell your crafts.

You can also open an affiliate store, such as an amazon store. Once you get it set up, all you have to do is drive traffic to it! Again, you won't make fast online money with this method either. But, it does have its benefits, and can really provide you with some good online income later.

Another option is to find some dropshipping products...then put them in a store on your own website or sell them on Ebay. Unfortunately, while this, too, could be a good source of online income, it won't make you fast money online.

Make Fast Money Online Writing

If you have any skills at writing, you can write articles to make some fast money online. Sites like Helium, Constant Content, or Associated Content all offer pay for articles.

Check out this post for earning fast money by writing for Helium.

You won't make a LOT of money with these sites, but you could make enough to give your monthly budget a little boost.

How NOT To Make Fast Money Online

There are many sites out there (and opportunities offline as well) that claim you can make thousands of dollars your first day...all you have to do is pay them $40, or $99, or even $300! Guess what? These are SCAMS! Really, anything you do to make money online will take some time to build up.

Do not do "paid surveys" or any get paid to read email, or get paid to take offers type of "work". Even if you do get paid, you aren't going to make fast money will take a few months to get to the minimum payout, which is usually around $25 or $35.

In short, if you find anything online that promises you can make fast money online, be sure to do a Google search on the company, and ensure that it's not a scam. Check sites like the Better Business Bureau or Snopes as well; searching any offer you find that claims to make you fast money online will save you a lot of money in the long run!

Looking to Make Money from Home???

If you really want to make money from home, you really need to visit oDesk!! I have been SO busy with my jobs I have gotten through oDesk that I haven't had enough time to write on my blogs.

Make Money From Home

ODesk is the best opportunity for making money from home that I have found, and I've been looking for years. The best part is that oDesk doesn't charge you, the provider, for searching for work! All fees are charged to the buyer, which in my opinion, is how it should be. Let's face it, if we are looking for work, we may not have the money to pay exorbitant fees!!

Make Money From Home with ODesk

As with any freelance website, with oDesk, making money from home carries a lot of competition. But with a little perseverance, you can be making money from home like you've always dreamed!

Unless you have a nice, fat portfolio available to list on oDesk (which I did NOT have) you will be competing against thousands of other freelancers with experience to back their claims up. How do you make money from home with these odds?

There are a couple of ways to ensure you make money from home working with oDesk. First, you have to realize that in order to prove yourself without an extensive portfolio, you will have to start out small. My first few jobs at oDesk, I only made $1.00 an hour. Yeah, that's not a typo, that's really all I charged!

Why did I charge so little (especially since I obviously wanted to make money from home, not lose it!)? I didn't have a portfolio, I didn't have references. So I had to start at the bottom, and on oDesk, you are competing with freelancers from all over the world, all trying to make money from home. So, I started my hourly rate at $1/hour. I also applied for any job I could find that I was qualified for. After 2 months, I had my rate up to $8 an hour, and buyers were inviting ME to apply for their jobs.

Currently, I am up to $10/hour, and I have been favorited by many providers. I have a high feedback score, which is why I can be more selective about the jobs I accept. So, my advice to you is to start off cheap...and don't be too selective about the jobs you take.

Once you have some successful jobs completed, with some excellent feedback, you will be able to raise your prices, and therefore make more money from home!

What Do You Want to Do to Make Money From Home?

Maybe I'm putting this out of order...LOL But, you have to figure out what kind of job you want to do to make money from home! There are many different categories of jobs available on oDesk:

  • Web Development
  • Software Development
  • Networking and Information Systems
