Big Savings On Daycare Costs According to the Children's Defense Fund and Runzheimer International parents are paying an average of $250 to $1,250 monthly for daycare. A mother who is making about $20,000 a year will probably find that she is really only bringing home only $5000 a year once all the additional costs of her working are figured in. Some moms are actually loosing money each month by working outside the home. 2. No More Bosses Giving You the Stink Eye For Not Working Due To Kid IssuesTheres nothing worse when your daycare provider tells you that your kid is sick and they cant watch them because of it. So there you go, having to take time off work as your boss and coworkers resent you and your chances of promotion becomes slimmer and slimmer because you cant be counted on all the time. 3. No CommutingNo more commuting when you work from home. No long drives, bad traffic, added expenses for car upkeep (car upkeep costs about $250 a month on average). You can simply wake up in the morning and walk a few feet to your home office. 4. Savings on Lunches Out and Work ClothesBetween eating out and buying uniforms or clothes for work (even if you dont have to wear a uniform) you are looking at paying about $145 a month. Nice thing about working at home and being your own boss is you can decide what you want to wear to work. 5. More FlexibilityThere are field trips to go on, sport programs to get the kids to, exercise classes, family that needs extra care at times that goes on in a moms life. Working at home offers the flexibility that is needed to do all these small things that add up and make a huge difference in everyones life including your own. 6. The Ability To Start A Business Doing Something You LoveThe ability to be a work-at-home mom is the best gift you could ever give yourself, for so many reasons. The big one though is being able to create a home business around something you really like and enjoy doing. You shouldnt have to hate your job or the way you make money. This is the perfect opportunity to finally put your interests and talents to good use, and make money from them. 7. Make As Much or As Little Money as You WantBeing the owner of your own business you can decide if you can work full or part time. This can depend a lot on the age of your children and how much you can dedicate to your business. 8. To Be Able To Say I Own My Own BusinessWhen you can say, I own my own business this is very empowering. As something Emeril might say, It definitely kicks the self-confidence level up a notch or two.9. Kids Can Learn How a Business WorksYour kids can learn first hand how a business runs. There will have no problem answering any questions like, So what does your mommy do. Kids become very proud of their work-at-home moms. They love the fact their moms are there for them, and that it makes mom happy to make money doing something she loves. 10. To Be In Control Of Your Own DestinyWork at something you love to do, have the flexibility to work around your families schedule, wear what you want to work and becoming the person you are supposed to be. These are all ways that you can have control of your own destiny.
A few years ago, pop-up windows were all the rage in Internet marketing. What is a pop-up window? It's a window that suddenly pops up when the visitor clicks on a hot linked graphic or hyper linked text. Pop up windows are often smaller than the existing browser window and display on top of the existing page the visitor is viewing.It seemed that every time one opened a web page they would be bombarded with offers for this or that. It had gotten to the point where surfing the Internet was almost like playing a video game; when the ads would pop-up one would try and close them out before another one came. This is precisely why we have seen the decline in the use of pop-up windows on the Internet today; Internet surfers simply do not even look at the pop-ups anymore. They close the windows out before even reading the ad. Very often, a surfer will even leave your site if there are too many pop-up ads. They do not want the hassle of closing those windows while trying to obtain the information that your site has to offer. This information, while valuable, is not as valuable as the surfers' time. However studies have shown that even with these set backs, pop-up windows are still an effective method of Internet marketing.Is there some way that pop-up windows can be less irritating and still be effective? Yes!!! What if the pop ad were seen upon exiting your site instead of entering? This would allow the surfer to obtain the information that they need from your site, feeling that they were able to come and go quickly without being hassled by other ads and offers all the while making the surfer happy. You have left the surfer with a positive attitude and therefore are more likely to respond to the pop advertisement. This is being accomplished more and more by using what is being called pop-under windows. When the surfer comes to your site, the ad is opened discretely behind the your web page. Then, upon leaving your site, after obtaining all the information that they need, will see the ad and therefore be more likely to respond. Since the surfer has the information, he has achieved his objective and is now open to do other things; ideally respond to the pop under advertisement.Not all pop-windows are created equally. There are some things that you can do to make your pop-windows, whether pop-up or pop-under more effective. The pop-window should be easy to escape from. If the surfer does not want to see the ad, but has a hard time closing it out, they will likely become frustrated and could leave your site all together. You can either use a button to that will allow the surfer to close the window or be sure that the x is easily visible. Another good idea is to use a script that utilizes cookies. Cookies will prevent pop-windows from overloading the surfer since you can decide the frequency of the pop-windows, rather than each time a page is opened. Also be sure that there is no more than one pop-window per page.When creating a pop-window, you will be asked to fill out a short information form, select the length of cookies, and choose the layout of the pop-window. When choosing the design of the pop-window, you can increase the effectiveness by creating a large headline that includes benefits that will be most appealing to the customer. You should also consider using incentives and lastly do not ask the customer to read a long and drawn out advertisement. Keep the message simple yet powerful and your pop-ads will be sure to generate profits for your site.
Are you still looking for that great home business opportunity? You probably are since you are reading this article. I have to warn you years may pass and you'll still be looking. The internet is moving with the speed of light. Blogs are now the main attraction. So is niche marketing. In a couple of months you'll be looking at a new idea which will be copied and slightly modified from all the big names in the internet marketing.What do to? Which one to choose? Is that a scam? How can you know?All those long sales letters promising you automatic money sooner or later. You buy an ebook and read it; think about it for 30 minutes and there is another email saying something about an even better opportunity. And the circle continuesSo there you are, after a long day staring into your monitor for hours, reading and thinking what to do next "Maybe this will be my chance! Hmm, and how about this! Check this out all this for only $47! Wow." Or maybe notWhen you finally shut down your computer and go to bed you realize that 6 hours have passed and nothing has changed. You still don't have a website, you still don't know who to trust and even this last ebook didn't give you the clearest directions. "Those were good ideas, yeah, but man, I don't really know how to do all that."What you are reading is my story. I'm not a guru, I don't sell 20 ebooks and 6 DVD's and I am not making $3000 a month on automatic.But what I do know is that I found a company and a system where I feel at peace. I know exactly how to begin my journey on the internet and I'm a happy owner of my first ebook. I have sold 11 copies of it. I also earn some money with Google Adsense.It's a good start and I am very optimistic. I'm learning and I will not quit. But what I needed from all that mega information on the internet while I was overwhelmed was a beacon. I needed a guide to show me the way.To explain to me where to start, what this SEO is all about, how to organize my website in a logical structure, what is Pagerank and how it will help me, how to promote my site and build traffic without 10 DVD's that cost $997.I now feel extremely calm, focused on my goal and my passion and I am not lost anymore in this huge World Wide Web which bombards us with zillion money opportunities.I am not searching anymore. I am now working with joy and passion. I know where I am going and that's a very fun place, trust me. You can start your journey too. Here's what you need to decide right now: are you still going to search every day for hours and nothing will change except your mood, or are you going to take action and start moving decisively in the direction of your success.
