        Hello again and a warm welcome to all new subscribers!

        This week sees the introduction of a brand new feature at A
        Home-Based Business Online.  Many of you have expressed an
        interest in working from home but are not yet sure about making

        help those of you in this position, both this newsletter and the
        website will contain a current listing of telecommuting positions.
        Sample listings will be included every week right here, but for
        a more extensive source, you can always visit the website's new
        Telecommuting Corner at .
        Telecommuting Corner will be up and running towards the middle
        of next week so be sure to visit soon!

        week is a new Free Reports page.  This page contains many free

        page - it's at - because

        stories to: Contact By Email


        2. Home Business Idea of the Week - Referral Service

        There are many different referral services you can run, either
        as a stand-alone service or together with other types.

        Here are some businesses you could specialize in: plumbers, hair
        salons, auto maintenance, child care, real estate agents, travel
        agents, lawyers, dentists, musicians and DJ's, printers,
        restaurants, even house sitters.  Basically, any high-
        competition business will appreciate a referral service.

        How can you make money?  If you provide the service free to
        consumers, you can either charge a monthly or annual fee to
        businesses listed with your service, or you can collect a
        commission on each successful referral.  Or, depending on the
        type of service you run, you can charge the consumer.  For
        instance, if you are running a roommate referral service, both
        parties (the searcher and the potential roommate) can be charged
        a fee.

        This business will be a lot easier to run if you have a
        computer, but it's not totally necessary.  If you do have a
        computer, you can use a database program to store information on
        the businesses or people you have listed.  If you aren't using a
        computer, you can keep the information in a 3 x 5 card file.
        Otherwise, all you'll need to start are business cards,
        stationery, and a business phone.

        Identify the types of businesses you'll keep information on,
        then develop a survey geared toward the type of business they're
        in.  Ask what types of work they specialize in, what their
        average charge is, how long they've been in business, if they
        have customers who can give a testimonial for them (call these
        people and get their permission before you use their testimonial
        - also, try to make sure they're not just the businessperson's
        brother-in-law, that they're actual customers who can give a
        real opinion), and other pertinent information.  Get these surveys
        out to each of the businesses in the categories you've selected,
        and keep their responses in your file.

        Put together a flyer advertising your referral services.  Then,
        distribute the flyers by contacting your local "welcome wagon"
        service, offering them flyers to insert into their packages;
        posting them on grocery store and church bulletin boards;
        leaving them on car windshields in mall parking lots; posting
        them in laundry rooms at apartment buildings;  and leaving them
        anywhere large groups of people will see them.

        When a customer calls for a referral, give them the information
        you've collected from the businesses.  They will appreciate not
        having to make three dozen calls in order to make an informed
        decision.  The customer testimonials will help people make a
        good decision.

        Keep in touch with the people you've given referrals to, so you
        can get their opinion on how the business did.  If you get
        complaints from customers, drop the business from your files.
        If you get good recommendations, move them to the front of the

        You will be offering a much-needed public service with this
        business.  Stress to potential businesses that you can refer new
        customers to them, and they should be willing to pay commissions,
        or a subscription fee.

        Give it a try, and you can make a decent amount of money in the
        referral business!


        There are many more home-based business ideas like this at
        with more being added all
        the time.

        3. Online Business Idea of the Week - Dating and Escort Service

        Starting and operating a successful Dating Service can bring in
        $60,000 or more per year for the sharp, aggressive, imaginative
        business person.  The secret to success with a business of this
        kind is marketing that presents your services with flair while
        still maintaining good taste.

        Most successful escort services are natural expansions of
        businesses begun originally as Introduction and Dating Services.

        This is a business idea that's perfectly suited to the online
        medium.  Your website should be tasteful and welcoming and
        should include, among other things, an online registration/
        application form and searchable database.

        Your registration/application form should include (in addition
        to the usual questions such as name, address, telephone number,
        marital status, place of employment, hobbies, likes and dislikes):

        -> a short personality test which can be obtained with a bit of
        research on the internet or at your public library.  For ideas,
        samples, and even tests you can use intact, be sure to check some
        of the modern women's magazines.  And don't discount the idea of
        registering at an already established business of this type; or
        possibly you can see their application form without actually
        involving yourself any further.  Or inquire among friends and
        acquaintances who have registered with a dating or escort service.
        Be careful not to infringe someone else's copyright though;

        -> near the end of the application, you should include a short
        paragraph pointing up the fact that your organization, in
        addition to bringing people together as a dating service, also
        provides an escort service for out-of-town visitors and local
        non-members.  You then pose the question:  "Would you be
        interested in these kinds of dates, which would include all
        expenses, and a minimum fee of $25 for what usually amounts to a
        very delightful time with an interesting person.  Your only
        obligation ever is to be your usual charming self, and enjoy."

        -> a legal disclaimer to negate any responsibilities or promises
        implied and/or not specifically stated within the application.

        When it comes to your website, try to make it upbeat, upmarket,
        attractive and welcoming.  It should appeal to the more
        conservative or mature as well as younger clientele.

        Include a "scrapbook" page on your website with portrait or
        candid shots of your members and clients.  These pictures can
        pose a problem for you while you are in the beginning stages of
        your business - so don't hesitate to gather pictures of various
        relatives, friends who are not necessarily located in your area
        - or even visit a nearby campus and ask if you can take pictures
        of some of their best looking men and women.  You will need to
        get a release signed by each one, and you simply explain that
        you are putting together a picture display book of terrific
        looking people for the promotion of your business, and their
        names and any other information will not be publicized or

        Publish a weekly or monthly newsletter or ezine and include
        updates about your site, "success stories" about relationships
        formed as a result of your introduction etc.  Actively seek
        subscribers to your newsletter.  A proportion of those who
        subscribe will decide to become members once you earn their

        You may also want to organize get-togethers for members in
        various geographic areas.  One particularly good idea would be
        to host or arrange dinners on a regular basis where members can
        simply book to attend, paying you an administration fee for your
        services, and meet other members on a group basis.

        This is a business that will provide pleasure and profit to a
        person who is out-going, fun-loving, gregarious, but who is
        sensitive to the needs of others, and enjoys seeing people "get
        a new start," or seeing more reserved ones "come out of their
        shells."  It takes more to get started in this business than it
        does for some other endeavors, but this is one that can start
        small and grow, improve, and even spread to franchising size.

        Finally, please check your local municipality's laws and
        regulations.  Some areas require operators of dating/escort
        businesses to be licensed.

        If this business idea interests you but you don't want to start
        your own business from scratch, look into Single Search National
        (a computerized matchmaking service).  They can be contacted on
        (800) 779 8362 or at 13176 N Dale Mabry #202, Tampa, Florida

        There are many more online business ideas like this at
        with more being added all
        the time.

        5. Continuing Tutorial Series - How to Become an Information
           Broker - Part 3 "Your Information Product"


        The biggest, and by far the hardest decision when starting a
        mail-order type business has always been WHAT TO SELL! Once you
        finally made that decision, you were faced with the dilemma of
        acquiring your product! That's what makes this opportunity so
        unique. These two giant hurdles have already been bypassed. You
        are reading your first product right now!

        As I've already explained, the best product in the world is
        without a doubt... INFORMATION. Not just any information, mind
        you, the information must be specialized and marketable. It must
        be specialized so that it can be marketed to a target audience
        and it must be marketable in today's world to sell. That's where
        this manual comes in.  The information contained in this manual
        is on the top of the list of most sought after information in
        the world right now! When you purchased it, you also purchased
        the right to copy, print, resell, and sell the rights to resell
        this valuable information!!

        Now that you have you first specialized information product, it
        is time to learn a sound marketing strategy. A finished product
        is not of much value to you unless you know how to successfully
        market and sell it.

        The rest of this manual will teach you everything you need to
        know about the "meat" of your business plan. Keep in mind that
        you can't help but learn more and more about this incredible
        venture as you go along! Therefore, you will most likely adjust
        your business plan to suit your needs as you go. Anyway, here
        are the five basic steps you will be taking. After the brief
        outline, I will explain each step in detail.

        1. Write a few good classified ads that are designed to get
        interested people to contact you.

        2. Prepare a short yet powerful sales letter that you will
        e-mail to business opportunity seekers.

        3. Utilize online marketing strategies. (Classified advertising,
        e-mailing lists and online newsletters.)

        4. Send your sales literature to your "prospects" via e-mail.

        5. Fill orders you receive by mailing and or e-mailing your
        information product to your customer.

        6. Guest Article - Common Sense by Bob Osgoodby

        No this is not an article written by Thomas Paine - His pamphlet,
        Common Sense (January, 1776), was one of the memorable writings
        of the day, and helped the cause of American Independence.  We
        are talking about using common sense when surfing the net.

        People in cyberspace may not always be what they seem.  Someone
        who is sharing a "friendly" tip about a money-making scheme
        [ed: or home-based business opportunity] or great bargain in a
        chat room or on a bulletin board, may have an ulterior motive.
        Sometimes those friendly people turn out to be crooks!

        Don't judge reliability by how nice or flashy a website may
        seem. Anyone can create and promote a website. One can be
        created with relatively little effort and expense in just a day
        or so.  Once they have exhausted their particular scam, they can
        disappear just as quickly.

        Many times, when visiting a web site, you will be given the
        option of downloading a program to see pictures, hear music or
        get other features from their website.  You should never
        download programs like this from websites you're not familiar
        with. You could unwittingly download a virus that wipes out your
        computer files or even hijacks your Internet service,
        reconnecting you to the Net through an international phone
        number, resulting in enormous phone charges.

        Unsolicited e-mail not only violates computer etiquette, it is
        often used by con artists.. Reporting "spamming," as unsolicited
        e-mail is called, to their online or Internet service provider
        was once a viable defense, however today it is less effective.
        Many con artists use fraudulent E-mail addresses and attempt to
        get you to respond via "snail mail" or to call their toll free
        number.  If you are tempted by their offer, reply to their
        E-mail and if it is returned as undeliverable, walk away.

        Don't provide your bank account numbers, credit card numbers,
        social security number or other personal information unless you
        know the company is legitimate and the information is necessary
        for the transaction. Even with partial information, con artists
        can make unauthorized charges, deduct money from your account,
        and impersonate you to get credit in your name.

        Do business with companies you know and trust.  Be sure you know
        who the company is and where it is physically located.  If they
        will not provide this information, you should be leery.

        Above all, use common sense.  Perform "Due Diligence" with those
        offers that just seem "to good to be true" as they most likely
