We all have had the tough economy affect our lives in one way or another. Maybe you should consider a new career in Internet Marketing. You can work from home. Did you ever think about how working from home can SAVE you MONEY?! Think about a few things….
1. Save money on the ever increasing price of gas. Commuting back and forth costs money. I just filled up my tank..$70…ouch!.
2. Save money on eating out. If you eat out at lunch, that gets expensive. Not to mention trips for coffee, snacks, etc. You can eat at home and you will probably eat healthier too!
3. Save money on clothes. From home, you can work in your pajamas! No need to run out and buy “office attire”.
4. Save money on child care. The current cost of keeping a child in day care is crazy! Work from home and you can eliminate that cost entirely. And you will have more one on one time with your children. You can even eat lunch together!

It is not everyday that I like to stay in pajamas all day but isn’t it nice to have the oppurtunity to do so? Especially on cloudy, rainy days that you just don’t want to even look outside. Or on days that 1 of the kids are sick and you must find a sitter, take them to work, or miss a day of work and the money. I’d rather stay at home in my pajamas and take care of the little one while working and making money still.
With the knowledge that you would get from the Internet Marketing Training Center, YOU could be the one working in pajamas. It won’t matter those days your child is sick and you have to stay home. I didn’t enjoy bringing my kids to work either, especially when they were sick. NOT FUN!
I bring out the pillows and blankets, tuck my little girl in, give her a drink in a sippy cup, and then sit next to her with my computer out, pajamas on, blanket over me, and leaning on a pillow. That is the life when you can make a fortune sitting on your couch with your children.
The Internet Marketing Training Center will teach you how to have your own successful website and be able to market it properly that brings in more traffic and increases your revenue. If you don’t want to do your own website, NO BIG DEAL! Other businesses can hire you as a “contractor” and you can work on their websites from home as well. Isn’t technology great if you know how to use it? With that being said, you only need BASIC computer skills to be a student at the Internet Marketing Training Center (in which you can do the online classes for your convenience).
Stop wasting time and start classes today at the IMTC!
One of the great advantages of being an Internet marketer is that you can work from virtually any location around the world. You may work for an employer in a towering office building or for yourself in the comfort of your own home. I came across a thought-provoking article about the reasons people give for wanting to work from home and decided to share it with our readers. If you are thinking about asking your employer to let you work remotely from home, this article by Sylvie Fortin offers insight into how to present your case.
Great versus Lousy Reasons to Work from Home
By: Sylvie Fortin
Did you know that many people have lousy reasons for wanting to work from home? Believe it or not, these same people are often the ones who fail as telecommuters. If you want to work from home, have you assessed whether your reasons are lousy or great? If not, take a few moments to see some of the most typical Lousy versus Great Reasons for Working from Home and then decide if you’re on the right track or not.
Lousy Reason #1: I want to stay home with my children.
Great Reason #1: I want to be able to be more reliable and work harder for my employer. I have children, so I am realistic enough to realize that working from home late at night, on weekends, and during holidays will make me a more efficient worker than if I had to miss work because of my children. By staying at home to work, I can make up for lost productivity by working off-shifts.
Lousy Reason #2: I don’t like to commute.
Great Reason #2: I would rather spend an extra 1-2 hours a day working, rather than waste time in traffic. During a typical commute to work, a lot of quality work time gets wasted sitting in traffic, when my time would be better spent doing extra work and meeting tight deadlines.
Lousy Reason #3: I want to make my own hours and work when I feel like it.
Great Reason #3: Standard office hours tend to restrict me. My skills are best utilized outside of the ordinary workday and I am most efficient and focused when I have the freedom to work longer hours than the standard office setting allows.
Lousy Reason #4: I hate working with other people.
Great Reason #4: My personal preference when working is to focus on the task at hand. I find the office setting to be too inefficient for me to truly work to my employer’s advantage.
When co-workers spend time chatting and socializing, it interferes with my ability to concentrate and work to my best ability. Although I enjoy socializing, I would prefer to choose my own social situations and leave my friendships outside of the work environment. This, to me, is the best situation for the employers whom I work with, as I am only billing for time spent physically working on tasks, rather than being paid for time spent around the office.
Lousy Reason #5: I want to make a lot of money.
Great Reason #5: I prefer to be compensated for the value of the work I do, rather than restricted to working an 8-hour day. In order for me to truly explore all my talents and expand my financial status, I recognize that I will need to work on many different projects and work with many different clients. This is my best possible opportunity to expand my skills and explore all the different career paths I would like to pursue.
Lousy Reason #6: I don’t want to work for a dumb boss.
Great Reason #6: In today’s tough economy, working for a single employer is not as secure as it once was believed. Providing my specialized skills to a number of clients at a time allows me to enjoy greater financial stability, because I am less concerned about losing any one particular job.
I do recognize, however, that each of my clients are my bosses. I simply choose to work for many bosses, rather than just one.
Although I have my own business and can choose my clients, I recognize the importance of treating each of my clients with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. This is critical to my success as an independent contractor. Once you have taken a look at your reasons for becoming a telecommuter, you can better determine whether you’re in it for the right reasons. Some people just aren’t made for working from home. There’s no shame in that reality, but it’s best to find that out before you cause yourself all kinds of anguish and heartache. Good luck in whatever you choose to do from wherever you choose to do it!

No more excuses for why you can’t get on the computer because of the following:
Headaches during or after working on the computer, Burning Eyes, Distance Vision is blurry when looking up from the computer, Dry, Tired, or Sore Eyes, Squinting helps when looking at the computer, Neck, Shoulder, or Back Pain, Double Vision, Letters on the screen run together, Driving/night vision is worse after computer use, “Halos” appear around objects on the screen, Need to interrupt work frequently to rest eyes.
I have researched some great tips that you can use to reduce or get rid of any of these symptoms. Really awesome advice that I have started using daily. At first, I thought my headaches were from my kids (LOL, they can do that too) but then I realized the headaches were starting shortly after turning on the computer EVERYDAY. When I started my research I then realized other symptoms I had that are related to CVS (Computer Vision Syndrome).
Here are the suggestions and advice I have found:
Suggestions That Can Help Reduce Some of the Effects of CVSS
Glare screen filters may be helpful for some people, but they will not solve your computer vision problems because they only affect glare from the computer screen, not the problems caused by the constant refocusing the eyes must do when working on a computer. An anti-reflective coating (AR Coat) on the lenses of glasses will reduce the glare coming at you and from behind you that causes eyestrain.
Proper lighting can reduce eyestrain and glare. Glare is created by glare on walls and other surfaces, reflections from the computer screen, bright light coming in from outside, and bright light inside. To decrease light and reflections from external light, close drapes or blinds. When using computers, lighting should be about half of that used in most offices. Using fewer light bulbs or florescent bulbs or use lower intensity bulbs can reduce glare caused by overhead lighting.
Take a 10-15 minute break every hour to reduce eyestrain. Look away from the computer screen every 10-15 minutes and focus for 5-10 seconds on a distant object outside or down the hallway or get up and take a short walk. Everyone tends to stare at the computer and blink less, about 5 times less than normal, according to studies. Staring and decreased blinking dry the eyes out. Taking frequent breaks allows normal blinking and better wetting of the eyes. Office buildings tend to be dry environments that also reduce tearing. If you are experiencing significant dryness, ask your eye doctor about artificial tears or eye drops that you can use during the day. By modifying your work area, you can reduce eyestrain and other effects of CVS. If you need to look back and forth between the printed or written page and the computer, eyestrain can occur. Place written pages on a copy stand next to the monitor. Properly light the copy stand. Adjust your workstation and chair to the correct height. Purchase ergonomic furniture to assure proper screen locations and posture. Poor ergonomic setup is a cause of head, neck, shoulder, and back pain.
Place your monitor directly in front of you, not off to one side. It should be about 20 to 26 inches away from you. Make sure your monitor is just right for you, not too high and not too low. You may need to raise or lower your chair. If you reposition your chair, keep in mind that your arms should be parallel to the floor when you type, and your feet should be flat on the floor or on a footstool. Finally, maintain good posture at your desk: keep your back straight and your shoulders back. Adjust the contrast between the background and the characters on the screen by adjusting the brightness on your computer screen.
Please note that I am not a Doctor and I am only giving you researched information based on symptoms I experience working on the computer for hours daily.
One of the advantages of Internet marketing is that you can select a topic that interests you and target a niche market that shares your passion. After you choose your subject and narrow your audience, you can decide which approach to take to reach your market.
How will you reach your customer?
- One-to-one approach
This approach relies on search engine keywords to draw users to your website as they browse the Internet. Once they have found you and given you permission to use their email to contact them, you may reach out to your customers through email promotions. In addition, you can nurture a client relationship by routinely posting blogs and inviting visitors to your site to interact directly with you.
- Appeal to specific interests and locations
With this method, you can define your market according to age group, gender, geographical location and special interests and then post ads based on the keywords your target enters when browsing. For example, a tire company can post advertisements on racing and trucking websites with the assurance that the audience has a similar interest.
What do you need to start targeting your market?
For starters, you will need a website, an email program and a blog. You will also need to know how to use keywords, shopping carts, merchant accounts, autoresponders, search engines and social networking programs In addition, you will need to develop and package products such as e-books, MP3 files, and e-courses.
