One of the best home-based business opportunities has always been that of a consultant. Consultants have been around much longer than the internet. Examples of classic consulting home businesses are Accounting & Tax Preparation, Bookkeeping, and Financial Advising.
In addition, the internet era ushered in whole new spectrum of consulting opportunities that can be run as home-based businesses. Examples would be Search Engine Optimization, Web design, Internet marketing, business consulting, and so on.
Perhaps you specialize in something and want to be a consultant? There is really no better way to start than with a blog. A blog is a low cost way to get not only your name out there, but your expertise as well. You don’t have to give away all your secrets. You can write your own spin about industry stories or other blogs of interest.
A few posts per week will soon help you establish yourself as a specialist in your field. Your blog can be like an online resume for future clients to review and help them get to know and trust you before doing business with you.
