Golden Rules For Moms Working Online

Whether you have given up your corporate job to spend more time with the kids or want to augment the household income, work-from-home online jobs can be one of your best options to bring in steady profit. Setting up a home office sends the idea that you are committed to the family and your career. But as good as it is to make you both professionally and domestically functional, working online—and at home—can present some problems. What are you supposed to choose between a wailing kid and a project nearing deadline? How are the kids expected to behave when mommy’s working? And who’s going to wash the dishes? Moms working online are sometimes torn between work and household duties. So, how do you draw the line?

Families are as diverse as the individuals that make them; therefore, parenting and running the household greatly vary in style. But though that’s the case, online working moms should follow specific rules to allow productivity. Here are some of them:

1. Discuss the setup with the family. It should be agreed upon by the husband and, in case they are all grown up, the kids. If the kids are still toddlers or need close attention, decide if you are going to hire a caregiver, and if you are, identify if it’s going to be a fulltime or a part-time caregiver. In most cases, part-time sitters are more practical since mommies won’t work the entire day anyway.

2. Define your work schedule. It, of course, depends on your preference, family, and other duties. But whatever your schedule is, make sure everyone knows it to lessen distractions and interruptions. Setting definite working hours also gives your kids the impression that they have a space in your schedule and that they can wait for their time rather than barge in your home office any time they want. Stick to your schedule at all times, unless of course urgent events merit your attention.

3. Decide whether you will have a closed door or open door policy. A closed door policy works better if you have a hired sitter. This allows you to work with little or no distractions and your sitter to comfortably assume responsibility without your constant inquiry and checking. The open door, on the hand, is advised if you don’t have a hired caregiver. With this policy, you can instantly check how the things are going with your kids and the house. But since this can invite noise and distraction, you can close the door whenever you need extra concentration and are talking over the phone.

4. Orient yourself, the kids, and the caregiver about the possible interruptions that you can and cannot respond. Be as specific as possible and show sturdiness. Don’t go out of your home office at the sound of a whimper; instead let your caregiver do her job. If the kids are grown up, tell them the kind of environment you need and how they can help you achieve it. Children just need to be talked to and constantly reminded.

5. Lay out your expectations—how the kids are supposed to behave, the amount of household chores you can assume, the level of noise you can tolerate, among other things. Then, set out a plan. If, for instance, your kids are older, you can ask them to tidy their rooms on their own. Or you can work far from the living or TV room. Moms working online and their families, at the start, need to make certain adjustments.

How to Avoid Job Scams

"If it seems too good to be true, it probably is."

If nothing else, this age-old adage might be the most important piece of advice to remember in your job search, especially in today's market.

Though job scams are prevalent at any time, today's tough economic times have increased the amount of scammers looking to take advantage of people desperate to make money and find a job.

"With the economy sliding, people who might otherwise be skeptical want to find a silver lining and too often mistake the glitz-and-glamour promises of a scammer's ad for their path to financial security," says Christine Durst, co-founder and CEO of Staffcentrix, a training and development company that focuses on home-based work.

Durst says Staffcentrix researchers screen about 5,000 home job leads every week, and there is a "56-1 scam ratio" among work-at-home job ads. Any opportunity where you can "make money fast," "no experience is necessary," or "work in your pajamas" is appealing to people, so they get thrown into the scam mix.

Mindy A. Bockstein, chairwoman and executive director of the New York State Consumer Protection Board, agrees that people are trying to capitalize on the strong desire for work and income in different populations and communities.

"Don't fall for get-rich-quick schemes, work-at-home scams, pyramid schemes and numerous other approaches promising employment and wealth but being used to separate job seekers from their money," she says.

Who's the target of job scams?

Anyone seeking a better job opportunity or looking to earn some money -- even smart people -- can get sucked into scams, says Robin Giroir, regional vice president of Spherion Staffing Services. With the wide scope of the Internet, every bogus "job" can reach hundreds of thousands of people, she says.

Durst says victims of work-at-home scams are typically -- and unfortunately -- those who can least afford to part with their money. One particular scam reviewed by Staffcentrix targeted women who were between the ages of 18-49, had children, were less affluent and did not have a college education.

"We are also seeing a rise in the number of seniors and retirees falling prey to these cons, as many of them are now looking for ways to supplement their income due to the declining stock market," Durst says.

Spotting a scam
While identifying a scam seems like as if would be easy, you must remember that the people who create them are practiced con artists. Many scams are linked to what seem like legitimate Web sites that have professional photos, testimonials, audio and video -- all the things that can convince someone that it must be real, Durst says.

Here are some things to keep in mind when spotting a job scam:

1. Hold tight to your cash
"No legitimate employer asks you for money. This is a foolproof tip off that something's not right," Giroir says. "There are a number of scams that work this way. You deposit your money in an offshore account and wait for your investment to make you wealthy, or you purchase a list of high-paying jobs you can do from home. Whatever the scam is, don't fall for it."

2. Make money while you sleep
"Beware of ads that make outrageous claims, don't specify job duties and don't require that you send a résumé. Legitimate employers are seeking candidates with specific skills, knowledge and education. Watch for ads, even for entry-level jobs, that use the phrase 'no experience necessary,' especially when there is a promise of big money," Giroir says.

3. 'Work at home' appears in the header
"'Work from home' is not a job title," Durst warns. "If it appears in the ad header, there's a good chance it's a come-on. Scammers can rarely resist including it in the header -- it's the bait of their 'hook' as they fish for desperate people to reel in."

4. Miracles arrive in your inbox
"How could this man from Romania have known you were looking for home-based work? Miracles do happen, but not via spam," Durst says. "Move [the e-mail] to your trash file without using the 'remove me from this list' link you're likely to find at the bottom of the page. These links are often used to confirm that your e-mail address is active, and using them can result in even more spam."

5. Palm trees, mansions, beaches and bikinis
"Successful scammers often bag their prey by dangling enticing things in front of them -- much like kidnappers do," Durst says. "'If you get into my car I'll give you this candy bar...'"

6. Put on your detective hat
There are essentially two ways to get listed with the Better Business Bureau: Buy a membership or get reported for bad business practices, Durst says. "While the absence of a company's name in their listings is not unusual -- not every business is a paying member of the BBB -- a C, D or F rating and multiple complaints are a flashing warning signal."

Durst adds that you must be careful about ads that look legitimate and that contain the name and Web site of well-known companies but carry a "free" e-mail address for a reply.

"Reputable companies have been victimized by scammers using their company names and reputations to scam unwitting job seekers. Always take the time to stop by the company Web site before responding to a job ad," she suggests. "You may find a notice warning you of the scam. What you won't find, is a job listing for someone to accept checks and wire funds to someone."

Too little, too late
Unfortunately, many job seekers still fall victim to job scams. So what happens when you realize that you're involved in something you probably shouldn't be?

Consequences include identity theft, loss of savings, unauthorized charges to your credit card and, at worst, a run-in with the law. At minimum, you lose some money and a little pride, but consider it a lesson learned, Durst says.

10 Ways to Score That Job Offer

You don't want just a nibble or an interview -- you want an actual job offer! Get your foot in the door and kick it wide open with these expert tips:

1. Be a great match on paper

"Getting the job offer is often a function of the quality of match between you and the job requirements. That's why your résumé needs to have key words and achievements that are relevant to the specific job," says Catherine Jewell, author of "New Résumé New Career: Get the Job You Want with the Skills and Experience You Already Have."

Scrutinize the job ad for tips on what might be most important to the employer. Ditch the generic résumé in favor of a document tailored to the position at hand, and consider cutting out details that don't contribute to your suitability.

2. Keep your references up to speed

Send a quick e-mail alerting references to the position for which you are applying. "Let them know the specific skills sought after for this job and the strengths you are stressing in your own positioning for this opening so they can support you," says Harvey Mackay, author of "Use Your Head to Get Your Foot in the Door: Job Search Secrets No One Else Will Tell You."

3. Do your homework

Candidates who are unable to hold a basic conversation about the company they would like to join appear unprepared and disinterested.

"Do your research on the employer," stresses Julie Rulis, a senior recruiter for Western Union's talent acquisition team. "This goes beyond just looking at the company's website. Review the company's financial statements. Google the company and look for recent news -- and bring it up during your interview. Use social networking to your advantage. Lots of companies these days have Facebook pages or a following on Twitter."

4. Be consistent in multiple interviews

"A foremost reason why companies conduct multiple interviews is to make sure that candidates present a credible and consistent picture of themselves to various members of the team," Mackay says. While the interviewers' questions may or may not differ greatly, be sure that you are accurate in presenting your history (which should match your résumé) and that you continue to play up your relevant strengths throughout the whole hiring process.

5. Ask positive, intelligent questions in the interview

"Candidates appropriately spend the bulk of their time preparing to answer questions they anticipate being asked," Mackay says. "Always be ready to ask two or three questions yourself that show you have studied the company and that you are thinking about the top-of-mind issues that the company is considering."

6. Translate your past into future success

Show your capabilities. Weave real examples from your past into your interview, and quantify production whenever possible ("Sales went up 10 percent after my team implemented ...").

"We find that those professionals who successfully secure employment fully understand the value of their previous contributions and can communicate this from the employer's perspective. They are also able to anticipate and communicate how their proven history of achievement can positively impact a prospective employer," says Jennifer Dunleavy, president of The Accuro Group, a professional services organization based in Cary, N.C.

7. Be specific about the contribution you can make now

You may be dying to know the salary scale or how fast new hires move up. Remember, though, that you need to prove your worth before worrying about these issues. Focus on the position at hand and why you are the candidate best-suited to fill it.

"Companies want a short-term boost from almost everyone they hire. Research and probe in your interview conversations for things the company needs now to ratchet up its performance. Show how you are part of the solution," Mackay says.

8. Be likable

Get the interview off to a good start by being on time. Smile at people you pass. "When it's all said and done, people hire people they like," Jewell says. "Try to relax in the interview and show that you are a likable, fun person. Don't be afraid to laugh."

9. Ask for the job

Leave no doubt in the interviewer's mind about your enthusiasm. Jewell recommends ending the meeting by saying, "I would really like to contribute to this company. I am hoping you select me."

10. Follow up

Finally, don't sit around thinking an employer will call if interested. Keep your name in the forefront by taking a few minutes to convey gratitude for the opportunity and excitement for the company.

"Don't underestimate the power of a thank-you note," Rulis says. "It can really set you apart from the competition."

What Happens After the Facebook Like? 20 Tips To Engage Your Audience After the Like

So, you click the “like” button. Now what? What does it really mean to “like” a Facebook page? Does it mean you really like the page? The brand? The product? Or are you just curious? Or might you even be guilty of lurking?

What did or would you have liked to see after you click like? Are you wanting to be inspired? What will inspire you to read a post? Click a link or a tab? Will you ever engage with the brand, or owner of the page you “like”? Do you remember the name of the product, service or brand?

The biggest question of all is, will you ever come back? Yes or No?

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a big button that asked “will you be back, yes or now”? My guess is a high percentage of the people who click “yes, I’ll be back” in reality won’t.

There is so much focus on Facebook “likes.” Be our fan, like our page and the list goes on. Many business leaders think they are making progress in social media if they add a Facebook logo to a print ad with the words “fan us”. However, you visit their page and they have the courtesy 150 “likers” and little to no engagement. How is that helping your bottom line revenue? How is it delivering an ROI?

A Facebook “like” is the beginning, not the end of a relationship.

Inspiring your audience is not an option, but a requirement. Inspiring your audience to action, post “like” is the only way you will see a positive return on your investment.

A “Like” is not the end, it’s not a check mark on your list of social media accomplishments. A like is the beginning. It is the first step the visitor has made in engaging with your brand. It’s up to you what happens next.

Will you pass the “after like” test? Will they ever come back? Who cares if you have 3,000 likes if they only visit your page one time? I’d rather have 200 that are engaged, commenting and telling their friends and family how great my products are than 3,000 deadbeats who never came back for a visit after the first “like”.

20 Tips For Post-Like Success

1. Accept a “like” is just the beginning. Don’t see this as negative. It’s positive. A Facebook like is the start of a new relationship. Treat it as such.

2. Develop a plan. Just like with any other business, marketing or social media activity, develop a plan. Social media is not a band-aid for a broken business, nor is Facebook. Despite what the new intern you hired may have told you, Facebook will not magically help you become popular overnight. The best way to produce a positive return on your investment is to set realistic goals and objectives with a plan to get there! As Granny says, “plan yer work and work yer plan!” Avoid random acts of marketing (RAMs) and social media at all costs!

3. Develop an editorial calendar. This may sound difficult, but it’s not. No need to over complicate it. If you’re a beginner to social media, keep it short and simple. What are you going to talk about and to who? Avoid random acts of Facebook if possible. At minimum create a calendar each week with key topic ideas. This will help you stay organized. Leverage a variety of different types of content to engage your audience. The editorial calendar and content should obviously support your plan inclusive of goals and objectives.

4. Know your audience. This is pretty straight forward and in reality common sense, marketing 101! Know who you are targeting and why. The more you know and understand your community the better. Leverage Google analytics if you already have a blog to see what content is most popular. Check out the Facebook Insights on your Facebook page weekly at minimum. Don’t just read the reports. Understand the data and how you can use it to better connect and engage your audience.

5. Focus on value. What can you offer your community that is unique, relevant and will help them professionally or personally. Focus on being different but in a good way. What can you offer them that nobody else can offer them? How can you connect with them personally and professionally?

6. Respect your “likers”. Just because someone clicks the like button, it doesn’t give you authority to spam them. It doesn’t mean they are in love with your brand or anything you have to say for that matter. The biggest turn off for me when I click like a new Facebook page is if the page is filled with self gloating and spam. If this is what I see on first visit, I usually immediately “unlike” and never return.

7. You have one chance to make a first impression. Do not launch your Facebook page and announce to large numbers of people until it’s ready. It’s best to wait until you have at least a plan and a foundation for which to build a community. If you invite everyone you know and you have no plan ready to execute for engagement and community building then it’s a wasted opportunity.

8. Engage early and often. You need to engage your audience right away! Have readily available educational content, email opt-ins, videos, links to relevant content and sites etc. Don’t be shy in asking for engagement via appropriate invitations via polls, contests, video, graphics, RSS feeds etc. Respond to people who comment daily if possible.

9. Brand yourself and your page. Would you create a website that looked and smelled like all of your competitors? I hope not! Your Facebook page should not be any different! It should do more than speak the same boring language and host the same boring standard graphics as every other Facebook page out there. Be bold. Be different. Integrate your brand into the badge photo on the left hand side, into the tabs and anywhere you can. If you don’t have graphic and design skills in-house then hire an agency to create a custom Facebook page for you. They are not expensive and you will see positive return in short order if executed by a team with experience.

10. Create a custom Facebook welcome tab. With Facebook official pages you can select a tab as a default landing tab for people who have never been to your page and clicked “like” before. Maximize this tab. Include a video, information on who you are and what you can do for your audience. Include an email opt-in.

11. Create an experience. You want the visitor to think “wow, this page is really cool, I should bookmark this and make sure I come back”!

12. One size does not fit all. A “like” is going to mean different things to different folks. You probably have some “likers” who truly like or love you. You’ll have some who are on the border line of decision and some who aren’t quite sure yet. They will be visiting at all different times of day, in different moods and seeking different content and connection. Include a variety of different content and information. Do more than post links. Some people may need inspired with a quote. Others may be attracted to video, contests or polls. Most all visitors will want to be educated so don’t forget to include real business nuggets that educate and help people grow professionally and personally. By varying the types of content you post, you will increase your chances of engagement and action by your audience.

13. Make it fun! Bottom line, people want to be inspired. They want to be entertained. They want to be educated. Give them something they will remember. Don’t consistently post boring business links with no commentary or boring business speak commentary. Throw a dash of personality in and content that is out of the box.

14. Be professional. Remember, although you may be tightly connected with a good majority of your audience don’t forget you are still conducting business. I have seen some Facebook pages lately filled with immature content. In extreme cases I’ve seen some posts I wouldn’t want my mama’ to see. Use the mama’ test. If you wouldn’t want your mama’ to see a video or other content, then by all means do not post it on your Facebook business page wall!

15. Do not put the page on auto pilot. The worst thing you could do is put the page on auto pilot filled with nothing more than RSS feeds, auto Twitter tweets and Networked blog posts. Keep a close eye on the tools you integrate and setup for auto posting to your page. It’s easy to get ahead of yourself and wind up with a page filled with nothing but auto posts that often times begin to look like spam to a user who doesn’t know you.

16. Don’t be shy about inviting them into your community. Invite them to subscribe to the RSS feed for your blog. Do not hesitate to make it easy for them to join you on Twitter, LinkedIn and any other social network where you actively engage for business. Give them a reason to join you on another platform. For example start a discussion on Facebook, continue it on LinkedIn question and answer section. I have met some amazing people doing such.

17. Facebook is not the only social network. Do not put all of your eggs in one basket. Do your research and determine what other social networks will best provide a positive return on your investment. Focus on one or two others such as Twitter and LinkedIn. Leverage the relationships you build on Facebook to grow them further or connect in different ways on other platforms. Every social network offers a different tone, and different ways that people engage. Some people are more comfortable commenting on a post on your blog or LinkedIn. While others may prefer to Tweet with you and communicate via Facebook.

18. If at first you don’t succeed, try again, then get help! If the goin’ gets tough in the beginning, don’t give up! Many people struggle with gaining momentum with a new Facebook page. Communicate with your audience. Ask them what they want and need. Try new and different content, strategies and tactics to obtain their interest and engagement. If you are consistent, you’ll eventually figure it out. If you see early on, it’s simply not working then don’t hesitate to hire an outside social media marketing agency or consultant. When doing such, make sure you look past the pretty pictures and are hiring someone that can help you drive engagement and real action aligned with your business goals. At minimum they should already have conquered and fled past the 150 courtesy likes on their own Facebook page. If they can’t get their own audience to engage how are they going to help you?

19. Set your page up according to Facebook Terms and Conditions. I am in shock how many social media consultants are still suggesting their clients setup two personal profiles and run one as a business profile. This is in direct conflict with Facebook Terms and Conditions. Facebook has the right and has been known to delete accounts setup in such a way. The easiest way to tell if a business is breaking the terms is if they ask you to be a “friend”. Businesses should only be able to have “likers”, not “friends”. This is important and presents privacy risks if not managed correctly. Remember this also when you accept friend requests from a business breaking such rules. Do you really know who is behind the Facebook wheel of a local business? It could be a neighbor, intern or son or daughter. Use common sense. When you accept a friend request from a business who is not adhering to Facebook Terms, you are opening up your personal data to the new friended business based upon the your Facebook privacy settings.

20. Be real! There is only one you. Be that person. Don’t pretend to be something that you aren’t.

Your Turn

What type of results are you seeing with your Facebook page? Have you been able to get past the 100-150 courtesy likes from your warm market of family and friends? Is your audience engaging? Or are you stuck? Do you have tips for success you can share and help others?

Learn Where to Find a Good Job?

Where to find a good job? The job search may take a while, but with the simple steps you will find that job that suits you.

Getting a job is one of the most stressful situations a man or a woman can go through. The main thing to remember about finding a job is to not let it stress you out.

When looking for a job, make sure that you are confident. If you show that you can do the job, you most likely will. Do not limit yourself to only one field of jobs, but try out for many jobs, and fill out as many applications as you can. Again, do not limit yourself.

Finding the job is the most important part, and we will all come to face this fact eventually. A few things to help you find a job is this: Go through the local newspapers, go through all of the adds, circle the ones that interest

you and then fax in your resume, or give them a call as soon as possible. Do not delay this, for if you do, you may miss out on the chance of a lifetime. A few places to find a job are on the Internet, also known as the world wide web. WWW. Go on the world wide web and type in jobs in any major search engine, or the specific job that you are looking for, and you will come up with many results.

Some jobs are also not right in front of your face either. You will have to do some searching. Also, keep in mind that if you know of a friend who works in a field that you are interested in, talk to them. They can usually help you out in your search, and possibly get you a job, or a career that you will love and enjoy.

Remember to try and choose a job that you will enjoy. If you enjoy the area of work that you work in, you will actually never work a day in your life.

Check out mystery shopping, or other fields like that if you are having trouble finding work, seek unemployment for the times that you can. Check out the money online

programs.

If you are going to college, many campuses have a work on site job that you can work while going to the college or campus. Also check out Grants and Student Aid for while

you are attending school.

When you are applying for a job in the paper, or the sign in the window, there are a few simple guidelines to remember.

Keep your resume short and neat, a one page resume is more than enough. If they look too long and gaudy looking, the employers will not give it their full attention. Again, be confident, be confident that you can and will do the job. List as many references that you have, attach them as well to your resume.

Dress for Success. Yes, I know you have heard that before, but it is the truth. Dress nicely and appropriatly for the job. Always smile. At the end of an interview, shake hands firmly.

When seeking for a job remember to follow your interests and do not limit yourself. The job search may take a while, sometimes a few months, if not more, but never stop until

you find that career that suits you. Always be in control of your life.
