An Online Media Service -- Founded March 14, 2015
About Home Biz is a resource - referral - and reference guide for individuals who are seeking information on how to build, develop, and market a home based business.
Please Note: As a home based affiliate business marketing site the following disclosure is being made in order to keep in compliance with the Federal Trades Commission regarding affiliate referrals and recommendations where the possibility of commissions are paid back to About Home Biz.
Hello, I am Ken Bradley, publisher of this About Home Biz site.
When you purchase an item as a result of going to resources from some of the links ( I ) will get paid a commission.
Some of the recommendations and referral affiliate links help this website produce income in order to stay in business, like any other media. The resources made available you, in this publisher's evaluation, are reputable consumer conscious businesses.
Consumer conscious - meaning business model companies that will stand behind their products or services. Consumer conscious, to also mean that the business opportunities presented are not get rich quick schemes. But instead are laid out business plans that have a history of success for income opportunity.
You are never under any obligation to buy anything. Those links, referrals and recommendations given are for items that can be beneficial to you.
With that being said, this online media business exists like any other media. I publish valuable content, sell merchandise, provide links to supportive affiliate businesses and offer advertisement space to my audience and others in order to operate profitably.
Many companies today, large and small sign up individuals and other companies to sell their products and services through home based affiliate business owners. The individuals and/or companies then market and sell the items for a commission.
Take a look at some of the links provided in this section to get some idea of the various large national stores that you can affiliate with.
If you currently have a business and would like to grow, you can even offer others an opportunity to earn income by becoming an independent home based affiliate business with you. Those who choose to affiliate with me would work strictly on commission and bonus points, ( I'll explain that later ).
This idea is nothing new. Prior to the internet and online businesses small home based entrepreneurs have always sold other companies products by working out of catalogs and flyers.
Direct door to door, one on one sales, party plans. Companies like Amway, Avon, Shaklee, Watkins, and many others started out that way and prospered by having independent salesmen and women market and sell their products. Some still do that today as a matter of choice.
Because of the internet and the ease of developing one's own website today, companies are taking advantage of cutting some of their overhead cost and increasing their sales by having home based affiliate business owners market and sell their products and services.

It is a win win situation for all parties involved. Just about every major national chain store has an affiliate program available for the home based affiliate business owner.
Go to the header page of just about any major department store or business and in the bottom footer section you will see the words affiliate or affiliate programs.

Before the internet you had mail order houses. Today you have online shopping. Different time, different name, different trend but still the same thing.
As a home based affiliate business owner this field of entrepreneurship can be very exciting and profitable provided you are set up properly and have chosen the right field as to what type of products and services you want to market.
Starting a business venture is like starting a new job. If you were looking for employment and the pay was sufficient what field or niche would you like to work in.
Like any business, the home based affiliate business takes time to start, grow, market and prosper. Unless you are already in an existing relationship with another company or have a business of your own it is best you keep your day or night job and enter this field on a part time basis.
By all means pick a field or niche that you would really enjoy working in. If you are afraid of selling don't worry about that because home based affiliate business owners don't meet their clients in person.
You Have To Have An Online Presence
As mentioned earlier you have to have an online presence or website to get into the business field of affiliate marketing.
A lot of companies you sign up with as a representative or distributor will give you a website with your membership fee. The problem is they do not inform you as to how to market that website.
Another major factor is that some companies you affiliate market for require quotas and dollar amounts.
If no one knows your web site address then that means that your online store is loss among millions of others.
Advertising can be done through social media marketing or paying for classified, display, visual, or audio ads. Paying for classified advertisement can be quite rewarding.
For me I just happened to be involved with the Amway Product company before the web sites and web stores were even in existence.
There were no quotas then and there are no quotas now. And all you had to do was buy and use the products yourself, in order for you know and experience the true value of the product.
The products were sold out of catalogs and through party plan type gatherings. This type of selling is still valid today with catalog or laptop showings.
Initially Amway products are sold when either you or your customer is about to run out of the current brand they are using. That's the easiest way to replace another brand that's been in a household for years.
As far as dealing with the companies that want you to affiliate market for them - Amway takes care of all of that. with their Partner Stores.
The Amway distributor membership comes with over 450 home care, health and nutrition care, beauty cosmetics, and a large variety sport drink products.
In addition the distributor membership, which costs $62.00 annually, comes with over 50 national name brand department stores that you can shop from and affiliate market sell for.
These stores carry their own discounts, bargains, and bonus payout schedules, and are automatically made available to you through your membership
As with the products you can earn bonus from these stores also, many of which you probably already shop from.
All I do ( and You do ) is market the store, buy products and use for self, and sell products to the wholesell and retail population through the online Amway Product store.
And then get paid.
Today you can market your products and store through social media.
Because I wanted to get into the website building area, the link below is the course I took and is what I used to first build the About Home Biz web site. And after building the site I was then able to imbed my Amway product store B/Crescent Services inside of it and started marketing two businesses at the same time..
This entire site was built using this system.
How To Build A Website Course
NOTE: If you just happen to be providing a personal service from a business you are currently involved with, you could have someone else do your marketing and sales by setting up your own home based affiliate business program where you pay them commission on the business they send you.
However, if you are selling your own products or the products or services for someone else your contact with your cliet is usually made through that customer going through your own website where you refer the customer to your affiliates website.
To keep track of your referrals and/or sales the company you are selling for will give you an individual coded link that your customer will use when they purchase an item or items from that company you are affiliated with.
Take a look at the example links below:
Still don't know what type of products or niche you'll like to be a home based affiliate business owner in. We all have a hobby or something that gets us excited and motivated when we think about it. It only takes one idea to create a very successful business online.
Don't have any ideas? The About Home Biz website is loaded with business ideas and success stories.
There are numerous ways of getting into the affiliate marketing business. To begin with a lot of the Multi Level Sales companies have links attached to them along with professionally designed websites.
These companies as stated earlier are usually Consumer Conscious - meaning business model companies that will stand behind their products or services.
Consumer Conscious, to also mean that the business opportunities presented are not get rich quick schemes. But instead are laid out business plans that have a history of success for income opportunity.
The Amway Corporation, which is an affiliate business of About Home Biz, located in Ada, Michigan since 1959 has an excellent home based affiliate business program.
In addition to the over 450 Amway brand products, you are given a web store that comes with over 50 National Brand affiliate Partner Stores that you can also market and sell merchandise from.

Other ways of getting into the home based affiliate business would be through social media.
Do you have an existing blog dealing with specific subject matter? Are you a member of a local club or organization that has a niche or topic that you are passionate about.
If you have a blog, create more content and focus on more blogging. It will let visitors know you're an expert in that particular field.
Then it's just a matter of finding a home based affiliate business program that you can promote and sell products for.
Several companies that specialize in that field are Amazon, Commission Junction (CJ Affiliate) and Clickbank. There are many others but these are more popular.
Commission rates will vary from company to company and from product to product.
Amazon, as you might expect has many books on the subject of home based affiliate business and well as on home based business in general.
