How to Start a Home Delivery Business

With more and more people working from home, it is easier than ever to start a business from the comfort of your own couch. One of the coolest businesses that you could think about taking part in is the home delivery business. Simply put, this means that you can deliver packages to people without having to have a physical location. The hard part with this kind of business however can be knowing how to get started. To make sure that you start a home delivery business with optimum success, this guide has been created. Read on now for absolutely everything that you need to know. 


Identify a Niche 

It's worth finding out something that you can sell that nobody else can as well as having a surefire way to be able to provide that product. For example, perhaps you actually make it yourself, and use a third-party platform such as Etsy for people looking to sell that product, or you have a great relationship with a supplier who you can count on no matter how many people order your product. Either way, it's important to have that niche in order to get ahead of the crowd. 


Choose Whether or Not to Drop Ship

Simply put, drop shipping, which has risen in popularity, refers to the practice of selling goods while not actually having any in stock. With this option, you simply act as a third party between yourself and the manufacturer. When the customer makes a purchase, you can save a lot of money by not actually needing to have any material in stock yourself, resulting in significant savings for yourself. This can be a very profitable option, especially considering that more people are buying items online.


Find the Right Transportation Options

Transportation is crucial when it comes to running a home delivery business, no matter whether you keep the items in stock or you use a drop-shipping process. It is deeply important to be able to save as much money as you can on delivery so that you can later reinvest in different parts of your business.

Create a Website 

There is no point in having a home delivery business if you don't have any way of promoting it. That's why creating a website is a very important idea. There are a bunch of hosts out there who will allow you to create a website for a minimal cost, making investing in a website an absolute no-brainer. 

Make sure to own your own domain name in order to look professional, as well as schooling yourself in how to SEO-optimize your website properly so that it appears within Google's search engine results page. Additionally, it is very important that you make sure you have a strong social media presence. Create accounts on all five major social media accounts — including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Tik Tok — in order to promote what you offer far and wide.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
