Five Reasons to Work From Home

work from home   Working with GDI is a great way to build additional income without having to punch a clock or check into an office. Others around you not convinced of the benefit of this untraditional set up? Read on to discover five reasons to work from home with an organization like GDI.

1. Make Your Own Schedule

Many people who are affiliate marketers have full time jobs, family commitments and many more things taking up their time. Yet they still are able to earn income in affiliate marketing. How? Working from home allows you to make your own schedule and work when you have time. Don’t think that means that you have to put in four hours as an affiliate marketer after your full time job. Making your own schedule often means putting in 20 minutes when you have time or a longer chunk on a rainy Sunday afternoon. As an affiliate marketer you decide when you will work and how much money you want to make.

2. No Time Lost on Commute

A second source of income is great, but it can come with tradeoffs. Say your second job is at a brick and mortar location and you have to drive there after your full eight hour shift. You’re now losing time in your day as you make your way to another place of work. Why not skip the commute all together and still earn income? As an affiliate marketer you can telecommute. All you need is access to a computer and the internet.

3. Work Around the Globe

Working in a brick and mortar location means you are limited to your number of customers. Most will be local and live close to your business. With affiliate marketing you can work with customers around the globe. You have easy access to new prospects with your computer and your unique schedule lets you set up time to connect with people in other time zones.

4. Residual Income

Affiliate marketing gives you a chance to build income even when you’re not working. As you build your downline out, others like you will spread the message of GDI, contributing to your residual income. Build your downline with the right people and you can confidently earn income without logging hours and hours on your computer.

5. Others Like You

Not everyone wants to work from home or work in affiliate marketing, and that’s fine! Working from home allows you to easily connect with and work with others like you. You can build your downline with people just like you who want to earn extra income but on their own terms. Decide what kind of people you want to build your downline and team with and go find them!

Harnessing Trends: Working from Home

downlineA recent study found that more and more Americans are working from home. Currently, around 3 million people in the US alone are working from home, not counting the millions more around the world doing the same. With so many people comfortable working from home, it’s a great time to build and grow your online business. But how exactly do you take advantage of this trend to grow your downline and your business? First you need to identify people within your network who are working from home. This can be easy to do using search features in LinkedIn and Facebook. Next, connect with these people and share the benefits of an online business in addition to working from home. Here’s a few ideas to do this:

  1. No commute time. Working from home means no commute and no waiting in traffic, which can add hours to the day. Those hours one would spend commuting can now be spent building your business. A few hours a day is all it takes to start building Income for Life. Share with prospective downline members that extra time can mean extra income.
  2. A connected lifestyle. When working from home, one is always connected whether it’s through laptop or smart phone. People get used to doing much of their fulltime work, shopping, scheduling and leisure time online. Harness this connectivity. Tell prospects who work online all day to take their lunch break to learn more about GDI. Once they’re interested, that lunch break and a few hours before or after their telecommuting job is all the time they need to start building their own business.
  3. Open to opportunities. Some people work from home in a traditional 9-5 job where they telecommute, while others piece together freelance work, contract work and more. Identify the second group of people within your network. Chances are they could use extra income and are open to new opportunities in their down time. Explain how GDI can create residual income to keep them building their own business even when they’re between projects.
