How To Convince & Train Your Family About Your Home Based Work

To my blog readers from the west, for your information it’s a common thing here in Asia to live with your parents. If you are living all by yourself then you can pursue a career but here in India or Bangladesh, you have to go by with your family.

So if you are in Asia living with your parents and want to take a profession where you have to work from home, then you must convince them first.

Even if you are not living with your parents, still if you have a family like your spouse or kids then it’s a great idea to train them about your stay at home business.

Having your loved ones by your side can do wonders for your work.

Do you know the reason how I was able to build a successful online career? It is because of my family. My family gave me full support for my online based work.

In this blog post I am going to give you some advice which I found useful by convincing and training my own family. [Continue reading…]

4 Ways I’m Making Money Online Other Than Freelancing

I have to be brutally honest with you guys. Money making was the sole reason I started my blogging career. I got into the blogging scene to be able to make money and support myself, and I was successful.

I made money from my blog within the first 6 months of starting my first blog. I took that money and invested in domain, hosting and my computer to work better.

Soon I discovered freelancing and I switched my career from a blogger to a freelance web designer. Now freelancing is my bread and butter.

These days freelancing is the talk of the nation in Bangladesh.

Online career means freelancing (people also call it outsourcing.) A large portion of digital workers in Bangladesh including me are freelancers.

Since I am blogging from Bangladesh, a lot of you guys are into freelancing. Here in this article I am going to share some of the ways I am actively making money online other than freelancing. [Continue reading…]

The Best Content You Will Ever Find About Online Business

side-image-best-contentOkay you must be thinking why am I here? “I must have been tricked to click on this link.” You were promised the BEST CONTENT but here you are staring at some list written by a random dude you don’t even know.

What Was it Like To Speak in Front of a Hundred People on Stage?

I just had my first public speaking opportunity here in Habiganj, Sylhet. In the past I spoke in front of a large audience for up to 10 minutes. This was the first time in my life I took the stage and had to talk for over an hour.

8 Tips to Maximize the Attendance of Your Webinars

You have the guests. You have the technology. You even have a hashtag all set. Yet, for some reason, you still have not been able to increase the attendance rate of your past and future webinars, otherwise known as webcasts.

The paucity of attendees to your webinars, whether they’re live or pre-recorded, is something that troubles a lot of brands that utilize online seminars. When you have just a couple of people watching your webinar, you feel disheartened and discouraged. You ultimately believe it was a wasted investment and a waste of time because not too many people were a part of your webinar.

It really is compelling to look at the numbers and see just how consistent webinar attendance rates are across various industries. The average webinar attendance rate is between 40 and 50 percent of registrants – that number shoots up to 60 percent depending on the source.

Webinars are superb business development strategies to employ. A webinar platform can help you conduct a killer webinar that will develop your brand, you become an authority on the topic and you garner the trust of your customers and prospects. Moreover, webinars become an easier way to get in front of a large audience (there are nearly three billion people using the Internet today!).

But what good does it do to host a webinar if no one is actually watching it? [Continue reading…]
