There are a couple of companies in which you can work from home taking calls for infomercials. Liveops is one of them.

11/17/09 update here is another online about Liveops.

What is nice about Liveops is you pick your schedule 24/7. I do believe this company is restricted to the USA and parts of Canada. From what I have read certain states they can't take operators from as well. If I find more information about that I will post it. If you look to the top of their screen it will speak about 'agents', and that is the work from home position.

This job isn't for everyone, but it will help you with your assertive training! The commits as they call it (or work shifts) are 1/2 hour long and they start at 10 after the hour, and 40 after the hour. You will be an independent contractor which means you are NOT an employee!

There are people at liveops that do this full time, but its also nice when you have this bill coming up and you are not sure how you are going to pay for it! In others words you can work part time as well! As long as your stay active which I believe is 1 commit every 45 days you can work for liveops. Please check the details on that to be sure.

They pay .25 per minute of talk time, and you also have incentives that you are paid for - basically extras that are sold during the call. They have agent facilitators to help you with your job, send out notes regularly about happenings, forum for agents to ask questions or vent. They have a lot of well known companies that they take calls for, and I'm sure you have seen the products on TV, read about them in ads, or heard about them on the radio.

Keep in mind I will moderate all comments to keep the spam to a minimum, but if you have any questions or comments please feel free to do so! I will answer them to the best of my ability.

BrainstormingWhen I with the local Chamber of Commerce we would have a meeting every year after we bring in the new directors and officers. What would do is brainstorm on ideas and avenues we would like to explore for the upcoming year.

The technique can be used when you are brainstorming on HOW to get that business going as well. I realize you don’t have a board of directors and officers handy, but I bet you have FRIENDS no? They can help a lot to get your started! Grab a date, time, and tell them to come over for nachos and margaritas one night to help you. They don’t have to be experts in your field, because we are after some brainstorming ideas! I would pick those friends that get along well together to make things go smooth.

After you get your bulletin board, chalkboard, or something similar pick someone who can WRITE fast! Give others pads of paper in case they think of something, and want to write it down before they forget when someone else is talking.

What you are going to do is write down all ideas your friends may have for your business, or idea FOR a business! The ground rules? All ideas, NO MATTER how crazy and off the wall they are get recorded. The second rule? No criticism about the ideas. The idea is quantity not quality at first!

Brainstorming sessions can be very fast paced, and did I mention I WHOLE lot of fun! Your friends (and you of course) should try to build on each idea, and let the twists and turns happen! You will be surprised at how much FUN and how much you do accomplish by doing this.

How do you get this started? Right down some questions to pose to your group. Let them know what you have been rattling around in your head, and heck if you have some unknown interests and skills make them aware of it. These could come in handy later! Lets say you invented a new widget. How are businesses or families going to use this widget? What is it about the widget that is useful, and could be used to save time or money?

I have a friend of mine that wanted to be a Virtual Assistant, and after she explained what that WAS to her friends (lol) they helped her find her niche market. How? They knew she had worked for realtors for years, and she knew the mortgage industry frontward and backwards! They came up with along good ideas for names for her company, and they fact she would be VERY marketable to real estate and mortgage industries.

Well now that you got that down what is your next step? Now that your creative juices are flowing you need some consultation and direction! That may not be something you can get from your nacho and margarita party, and you need some experienced, educated help.

sell baby products

Your website looks great; your baby products are simply adorable and they're priced right for the value. Yet you could still use a little more business, right? More and more business owners are using articles to market their web sites.

Do you have a newsletter or blog? If not, you should – and then you should use articles to promote your website and your baby products. Articles are a great tool to remind past, present, and future customers about your products or services.

There are a number of ways to let the articles work for you. Share your knowledge as it relates to baby safety and making life simpler for parents. Present yourself as the baby expert and link your website at the end of your articles.

Here are some topics to get your started – car seat safety, SIDS, comparison of baby bottle systems, making your own baby food, selecting a baby crib or a stroller, baby shower gift giving, necessities vs. wants, when Mom and Dad don't agree on child rearing, how to handle a colicky baby, help for the older sibling or what about Fido the dog?

Your articles need to inform; not sell. Of course ultimately you want to increase sales, but if your articles read like an ad, you'll lose credibility immediately. Help the new parents and they will want to do business with you.

Many work-at-home-mom networks and forums have specific days when you can post articles and inspiration. An article informing parents on the importance of checking for recall information on baby products would certainly help promote you and your website.

Promote your articles where your target market hangs out. There is no shortage of SAHM and WAHM sites. Many would love to have your article content on their website. It is truly a win/win relationship.
