Start a Work From Home Business

Work-From-Home

I have always wanted the women in the house to be working after marriage. It doesn’t really matter if you start some work from home or pick up a corporate job. But the female in the house must have an independent career.

Dreams don’t work – unless you do.

John C Maxwell

In Oct 2014, when I moved to Pune, Sonia had to leave her job in Gurgaon. A new place and new people, we took some time to settle down. After we were settled in Pune and life became, as usual, I started pushing Sonia to start some work from home.

Work from Home for Women

I understand the challenges a woman has to face to stay working after marriage. And it gets difficult when she has kids to manage. I am not really against working in offices if that’s the choice. But a work from home situation is always more desirable.

I ran numerous ideas with her but nothing excited her. But I could see her developing her interest in Baking. Her reading and watching were getting centered towards baking and she gradually became a part of a few FB Groups and started learning. Her interest started to become her passion and she started devoting a lot of time in learning the basics of baking.

Blogging as Work from Home Career 

I was happy that she started to find her way, but did not have a clue of how baking is going to make her create a work from home career. Somewhere in June 2016, I thought of giving a little structured shape to her passion and started a blog for her called Sonlicious which was later rebranded as AnyBodyCanBake. I had no clue that one fine day I will be taking blogging as a career for myself.

After I created a blog on WordPress, I encouraged her to start writing her recipes and put them in her blog. Neither of us had knowledge of blogging, but we started to take tiny steps into it. In the first six months, she only had some 15 recipes on her blog. I was busy with my job and only a little could support her in the blogging effort.

Demerits of Work from Home

Working from home has its own demerits, and I am not going to touch on those here. But just to run a few the demerits included time mismanagement, missed deadlines, priorities clashes and most importantly, family members do not really understand that work from home is actually a work that needs to be focused like any other work. And I truly understand how difficult it was for Sonia to handle all of that.

Initially, I did not think of any earnings from the blog. I was only focused on a medium that can present her experimental recipes to the world. Slowly and gradually, I could see that people started liking her recipes.

Work from home as a Full-Time Career

She started to receive a lot of appreciation for her work. We both saw a lot of potential in this work from home venture. I then finally took a serious decision of making her blog a little larger than what it was and decided to quit my job pick blogging as a career. The appreciation she was getting for her work was a big motivation for me to put myself in this work from home business and grow it further.

I finally quit my job on 30th Jan 2017 and took blogging as a full-time career. We did not have much content in the blog but had a lot of confidence in her experiments and passion.

It is really important to realize the core skill a person has and then convert the passion into a business. I devoted the entire February in reading and learning about blogging, WordPress, SEO and the relationships between all these three together.

I started meeting a few bloggers to learn from them. This was the month when I was spending about 17-18 hours in reading and learning without thinking of weekends. I had to ensure that my time is getting used wisely and I had to be fast. Sometimes it felt that work from home was more taxing than a regular job.

Growing Work from Home Business

By the end of Feb, I was a more confident person to take up the task of blogging. We decided to start a YouTube channel along with the blog and published our first video recipe on 9 March 2017. This was a recipe for homemade white sandwich bread, and to my surprise, within no time I had around 3K visitors on this post with a good number of views on the video recipe as well.

This success was a trivial success but it was enough to encourage me and my better half to continue with our efforts in our home-based business.

I realized that it is important to create a niche in the blogging world. It would not make sense to have scattered pieces of many things but to have a niche and build strongly on that. We decided to focus on healthy homemade baking recipes and create a niche in the baking world. Sonia focused on creating better healthy baking recipes and I started building more intelligence on blogging by reading and learning from people.

I learned, implemented, made mistakes, did a lot of revisions and improvised. Feb, March and April month was completely filled with an abundance of learning, plenty of mistakes, a lot of rework. My focus was to learn how to build an audience.

I knew for the fact that it will be the content that will bring the audience to the blog. From March till April mid, the blog had about 40 posts, 20 videos, and about 10K visitors per month. However, I was still struggling to see organic visitors to my blog. My audience was primarily from Social Media.

Food Blogging Challenges

The food blogging world turned out to be a real competitive market. For a simple search of “Chocolate Semolina Cake”, there are about 36,70,000 results on Google. In short for you to have your recipes coming in the first few pages of Google, you had to compete with 36,70,000 other webpages.

It was not an easy task, but we knew that hard work will bring results. Keyword search, selecting appropriate keywords, selecting appropriate images writing the article and few more ingredients to the recipe, when carefully added, made a perfect recipe.

Today we only rank on the first page for this recipe, we are the first link on the first page and we capture two snippets out of the possible three on the first page.

Chocolate-Semolina-Cake-Serp-Result

Just like the above examples, most of our recipes rank in first of the second page of Google, which then started bringing organic visitors to our blog.

The organic sessions brought a smile on my face and added a lot of confidence to the approach of my blogging effort. I still had to find more creative ways to increase organic visitors. I knew I had to go a long way from there, but the path was clearly defined. Our work from home venture was growing and had started making more than what I was making from my job.

Conclusion 

There are many between us, who wants to start a side business but are not sure where to start from. I am absolutely open to sharing all that I have learned, so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel and not necessarily make those mistakes that I have made in my learning process.

Let me remind you, if you think that you will do it from tomorrow, it will never happen. There is only one way to make things happen and that is to “Do it NOW“!

Building an Email List

If I had to start my marketing career once again, I would like to collect and start building an email list from day one. Not doing so is my biggest marketing mistake.

What’s popping in your mind now, like many other business owners, is doubt on email marketing. You probably think that emails are old age methods and now taken over by Social Media Marketing and Facebook Ads. You might be thinking do you even need email marketing?

Most of the businesses, just like I did, do not understand the importance of collecting emails and working on email marketing. Digital marketing has taken the world into a storm, but email marketing has stood the test of time.

In this article we will go through with the top reasons why building an email list is still important and how can you build your email list and start email marketing.

In this guide we shall look at the following:

  1. What is an email list?
  2. What is email marketing?
  3. Top 10 benefits of email marketing.
  4. How to create an email list?
  5. Constraints of free email marketing tools
  6. Benefits of paid email marketing tool

And as you keep reading this article all your questions related to building an email list and email marketing will get answered one by one.

But before we begin, I would like to talk a little bit more about the concept of email list and email marketing. If I have to assume, email marketing would be one of the oldest marketing strategies used in the online world. Through email marketing, you exchange emails with your potential customers and make more business.

Email-List

What is an Email List?

Think of an excel spreadsheet with names in one column and email address in the other column. That is your email list. It’s that simple.

However, in the digital world, you need to have the permission of the person to send them emails. Once you the permission, you can send them promotional emails to your subscribers about your business.

Email Marketing

What is Email Marketing?

When you use your email list and correspond to your subscribers over emails and try to sell your products, it’s known as email marketing.

Email marketing has its own protocol to follow to ensure that you are able to take full benefits of your email subscribers. You really do not want to offend them with your email, rather you want them to love your emails. You want them to read every email that you send and take your desired actions.

Email marketing software is the best-suited option to start focusing on email marketing and we will be talking about them later in this guide, keep reading.

Must Read: Some facts around email marketing

Importance of Building an Email List

Direct Marketing Association mentions an average of 4300% return on investment on email marketing. Whereas ExactTarget study shows $44.25 of returns on every $1 spent on email marketing.

The above stats are evidence that you should start focusing on building your email list now. It’s no brainer.

I know most of you would be thinking “these are great stats but will email marketing work for my business”. Yes, it does. Email marketing has shown results in every business and if done correctly, it will generate revenue for your business too.

Top 10 reasons why email marketing is important

#1. Personalization

When a subscriber gives you their email, they give you access to their personal space, their inbox. Now it’s up to you to strike a personal online conversation.

With email marketing, you can customize a single message to reach out to a wide audience appearing it to be specially crafted for them. Each email can be personalized using the subscriber name with any special effort.

#2. Grow Relationships

Email newsletters that talk about your business current and ongoing activities, events, upcoming plans keep your audience hooked to your business and they feel related because you are keeping them involved in your business.

#3. Emails vs. other communication methods

When you are talking to friends and family, more often you would use an informal messaging system like WhatsApp, Snapchat, etc. But emails are still the preferred choice of communication when the user is dealing with a business. So if you mean business, your email list will be your best friend.

#4. Email is purposeful

Why would somebody make an effort to leave their email address with your business? Most likely, because they are interested in knowing more about your business. And because they have taken the effort to leave their email address with your business, they are more likely going to read what you send them over email.

#5. Email is Targeted

If you follow the best practices of email marketing, slowly you will be able to learn what your audience likes and then segment them out in different categories.

For example, a few people in your email list might just like savory bakes while another set of folks may be interested in puff pastries. Once you learn their likes and dislikes, you can put them in a different list and send related emails of what they most likely going to happily read and take actions.

In email marketing, this is known as segmentation. Most of the email marketing software gives you the ability to segment our audience by tagging them to various categories.

#6. Data ownership

I had about 7K friends and followers in Orkut. It was one of the most popular social media before the Facebook storm took over and Orkut was closed down. I just could not do anything and I had to lose all my connections.

Now I wonder what if Facebook shuts down. I have around 10K connections on LinkedIn, but I still do not own the data, I can just use it till the time LinkedIn allows me to do so.

And in case there is a competitor and I like to move my friends to their competitor, there is no way I can do it. I will have to start over again.

But that is not the case with your email list. Every email that you collect is your asset. If you ever decide to change your email marketing service providers, export your email list from the current and import it into the system of a new service provider.

Your email list provides you the guarantee of reaching out to the inbox of your audience until they unsubscribe to your emails or they stop using their email id.

#7. One-on-One Relationship

Email is absolutely personal in nature. Unlike social media, where messages are posted in public and anything that you write is also visible to the whole world, emails are read in private.

The reader feels confident about reading the email and then asking questions directly to you, a one-on-one relationship. This builds trust.

#8. Emails are there to stay forever

Do you remember the following social media?

  • hi5
  • Orkut
  • MySpace
  • Google Buzz
  • Friendster
  • Google Plus
  • Vine

Probably not. Social media perishes. Blog perishes. Marketing strategies perishes, but email marketing has been rock solid since the very beginning.

#9. Emails vs. Social Media Users

I know what’s moving in your head. Number, isn’t it. How many people use email these days? You would have seen numbers like 1.9 Billion users on Facebook, 800 Million active users on TikTok and much more.

But what nobody told you yet is that every internet user has bare minimum one email id. A research done by Radicati found that there are more than 3.8 Billion active email accounts and that’s about 50% of the earth’s population.

#10. Email marketing converts better

Remember the TV commercial from Vijay Sales, if not watch it here

This advertisement is a true example of why personalization matter and how it converts more.

Mailchimp, an email marketing software provider, tracked thousands of campaigns with more than 1000 subscribers catering to various industries. The following is their report

Industry wide open rate vs conversion rate

The better you write emails, the more you connect with your subscribers, and the better you segment them out, your open rate and conversation rate is going to be better.

At anybodycanbake.com email open rate is 51.9% with a conversion rate of 13.1% and that is amazing.

I hope you know understand why every smart business owner focuses heavily on building an email list.

But you are head is still spinning and you are thinking about some guru who told you that email marketing is dead, then think about the following. What is the most important thing you need to open up your account with Facebook or Twitter?

Yes, you are correct. It’s an email id. The biggest social network giant knows that email is the direct way to connect with their customer. In fact, when Facebook has to send you some information, where do they send you the information? Just think about it.

That leads us to the question ….

How to create an Email List?

So now that you know how important it is to build an email list and that it perhaps is your biggest mistake to not start doing so, it’s time to take action.

Get a website

Your website or blog is your best place to start collecting emails. You can potentially convert every website visitor into your email subscriber.

If you are a beginner then I recommend using WordPress and start blogging. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make a website.

Beyond just building the email list, you will be able to monetize your blog in many other ways.

Get a lead magnet

Besides a website, you would also need an email marketing tool and opt-in forms to start collecting emails.

Creating a website, setting up email marketing tool and creating opt-in forms are fairly easy task and needs no technical or design skills.

You create beautiful opt-in forms, place them at the appropriate place on your blog and encourage the visitor to leave their email id for you. Most often, you offer the visitor something valuable, called lead magnets, in exchange for their email.

Offering a free ebook is an example of a lead magnet that you offer to your visitors for free in exchange for their email id. My first lead magnet was an ebook of my handpicked recipe cookbook for beginners.

The next step…

Get an email marketing tool

There are plenty, free and paid both. When people are starting up, for obvious reasons, they try to use the free version. For years I have also used the free version of MailChimp.

But when I really got serious about building my email list, I found that none of the free version gave me the real capability of automating my emails. In fact, all I was able to achieve with MailChimp free version was to send out an email update to all my subscribers about the new blog post.

email marketing tool free vs paid

Constraints of free email marketing tools

  • I could not use my branding in the emails
  • I was not able to tag my subscribers based on their demographics, interest, and behavior.
  • There was hardly any reports to find out who is taking action and who is not.
  • I was not able to move a subscriber from one category to another based on the actions they take on my emails
  • I was not able to send them a series of email via automation

And today I advise everybody to invest in a paid service right from the beginning. It’s worth making that investment and email marketing will pay its own bill. After trying a few services I have finally zeroed down myself to ConvertKit.

It is one of the most rewarding email services I have used that is truly focused on what I expect from my email marketing tool.

There are multiple benefits that I get from using Convertkit in lieu of the money I spend on them.

Benefits of paid email marketing tool – Convertkit

  • Send private mass emails (broadcasts)
  • Create a sequence of emails an automate the process of user engagement
  • Segment users based on their interests, actions, buying patterns, etc.
  • Run A/B split tests to test your email subject line, content, offers, etc. and find what works and what does not.
  • A deeper level of analytics and reports.

I hope by now you understand the importance of building an email list and the importance of email marketing. Now get started with it. Write impactful emails that increase the open and conversion rates.

Marriage Counsellor

  1. Marriage Counsellor

Back in 2006 when I got married, I had never heard of a Marriage Counsellor. If things went south, it was our parents and friends who could bring peace and harmony. I never thought that such a career would even exist.

But as the marriages started falling apart, depression started victimizing the generation, marriage counselor became a full-time profession.

We used to go out and play games on the ground. Teamwork was one of the core skill that we inculcated with every game we played. Today the generation is into video games. The moment you lose the game, you terminate and start playing a new game. This is exactly what we are now doing with marriages.

Some injuries like a sports injury, back pain, stiff neck, frozen shoulder, cervical, etc. are a few common problems that Physiotherapists are widely popular for.

This lifestyle change has bought a lot of pain and stress for mankind. Physiotherapists treat such injuries and disorders using physical methods like exercises, massages, and hot fermentation.

Recruiter

  1. Recruiter

Recruitment is going to be one of the top careers of all times. A career in recruiting is rewarding as well as satisfying. Read what Santosh Alex, senior engineering recruiter at Twitter has to say about Recruiting Career.

Government works hard to create jobs, but somebody needs to work in finding the right talent to fill those jobs. And that’s where recruiter plays a vital role in the success of an organization.

Finding the right talent, keeping the potential candidates interested in your organization and negotiating the salaries with the potential hires are few of the major tasks a recruiter does on a regular basis.

Unlike olden days where a recruiter was considered to be a liability to the organization, they are now considered to be the revenue generating unit. The faster and better resource they are able to hire, means additional revenue earning capabilities of an organization. Recruiter becomes a critical role when it is about startup hiring because of the challenges in startup hiring.

The recruiter needs to keep themselves updated with the latest in trend and should be prepared with a strategy of the recruitment process they will follow. Reading helps. Recruiters must spend some time in reading the top recruiting books to better themselves.

Robotic Engineer

  1. Robotic Engineers

Based on research done by Gartner, more than 30% of the human jobs will be replaced by robots by 2025. Interestingly Ray Kurzweil, director of engineering at Google believes human thinking to become hybrid (biological and artificial) by 2030.

India might be a little slow, for now, factoring in the cost factor but lately, there are some start-ups who are working towards developing smart robots. Robotics will be one of the top future jobs in India. The adoption of Gridbots robots in Bhabha Atomic Research Centre is one such step towards progress. Machines have started replacing humans in hazardous jobs like defense, space, nuclear plants, etc. And the industrial robotics market is believed to grow to $46 billion by 2020. A career in robotics is a career of future and is a high paying career to adapt for.
