Work at Home: Printing

By: hunter
Work at home job opportunities sound intriguing, but the majority that are offered are riddled with get rich quick schemes and scams that rarely pan out. Jobs that promise thousands of dollars rarely come through and, quite often, discourage many from even considering the opportunities that are simply a click away. Often, people are left wondering what to do with their new computers, aside from answering email and playing games.

Many overlook the benefits of a home-based printing business, perhaps unsure of how to promote themselves or because it seems so easy, that it simply can't be real. With a minimal investment and the help of a reliable pc, the home computer desk can quickly produce professional looking documents and, whether the job consists of merely typing up a high school report, designing a resume` or creating a newsletter, the opportunities are endless. Ideal for the homemaker or retiree, software is available no matter how computer-savvy; all that's needed is an eye for detail and a desire to make a dream come true.

The first step for creating a successful printing business is determining what services you are willing to provide. Do you wish to keep it simple, sticking to typing jobs and resume services? Perhaps you enjoy creating logos or have a flair for graphic design (personalized stationary is always a great seller, especially during holiday seasons). Once you've decided on the services that you wish to offer, and then it's simply a matter of drawing attention.

There is any number of ways to advertise a home printing company, ranging from corkboard fliers to newspaper advertisements. Free advertisement can also be found on the web, where one is able to create websites, post on boards and in various ezines. No matter what your chosen method, make sure your advertisement is simple and easy to read. One of the pet peeves, commonly voiced about such ads, is that they are gaudy and cluttered; potential customers don't want to have to search for your contact info or stand there, taking 10 minutes to read the ad. Only post relevant information; much like when applying makeup, less is more.

When printing from the home, one of the best forms of advertisement is by word of mouth. Maintaining deadlines, keeping rates reasonable and ensuring customer satisfaction is essential. By paying close attention to these, while maintaining a professional quality of work, you encourage repeat business as well as raising the chances that your clients will tell their friends about the work you've done. Don't be afraid to start small and gradually work your way up.

Whether you're a high school student or just looking to make a little extra money on the side, starting a home-based printing business is a wonderful venture, requiring little investment while offering a wealth of opportunities.
