Late in 1997, I noticed a feature of Microsoft Publisher was the ability to make a website. So, on a whim, I created a website, figured out how to buy a domain and hosting, and in January of 1998, Work-At-Home Success was born.
Twenty years later, the site is bigger and better than ever (okay…so I’m a little biased). What’s amazing to me is how much that has changed since then….
- In January 1998, neither Google nor PayPal existed, and people were still wondering how Amazon was ever going to make money.
- Ecommerce was available only to those that had the money and tech know-how to build shopping carts and integrate them with a merchant account.
- Although Constant Contact was around, newsletter/email marketing was yet to become a business standard (Aweber and Get Response were started in 1998 and 1999 respectively).
- Six Degrees, usernets, and message boards were the only form of social networking.
- While eBay and Amazon’s Associates program were running by 1998, home based and online income were still fairly limited.
- Work-at-home jobs were scarce and mostly in tech or writing fields.
Fortunately, today, home career options abound, including work-at-home job opportunities.
