It's true that when you think of working from home, you might think of people who do a lot of selling. Maybe your next-door neighbor sells Avon or Mary Kay, or another type of product. Whatever it is, though, it involves having to sell something, and maybe that's something you don't want to do. How do you work at home, then, without having to sell anything?

Well, if you work at home, you are going to have to "sell" something, but it's not necessarily that you have to sell products. Instead, you can sell your skills, your services, or yourself. So yes, that requires "selling," but not in such a blatant fashion.

What are some of the jobs you might be able to do it at home that don't focus entirely on selling?

Designing websites

If you have some skill at website design, you might be surprised to know that this is a skill that's greatly in demand. Yes, you can work at home and design other people's websites. If you have even a little bit of skill at this, or if it's something you know you have a talent for that you want to develop, you can create very nice websites for clients that'll make you a decent living, too.

Writing

If you have a passion for the written word, this can be a work at home job that can make you a very good living indeed. You can write articles and market them to potential customers or clients, or you can write specifically for clients who contract you to write for them. You can write e-books to sell, you can write for sites that do revenue sharing, or any number of opportunities out there on the Internet.

Doing daycare from home

If you're a mom, you can open a daycare center in your home so that you can take care of your children yet still provide a nice income for your family. And it has the added benefit of providing playmates for your children and giving you a nice paycheck besides.

Inbound calling services

If you work from home, you can do something called "inbound calling." With this, you take orders from those who have purchased things from businesses, online shopping networks, infomercials, and so on. Sometimes this type of job also includes some basic customer service.

Bookkeeping services

If you've worked as a bookkeeper before, this is a skill you can definitely use when you work at home. Many local businesses or even online businesses need bookkeepers to help them keep track of their finances because they don't have the time or talent to do it themselves. This is ideal if you are good with numbers and are a stay-at-home mom but want to make a nice income nonetheless.

Tutoring

If you've ever been a teacher, you might just be surprised to know that an online tutor is one way you can use your previous skills. With this type of work, you tutor students who are having problems with a subject area that you are an expert in. You may be able to do this exclusively online, or you might see students in your home or travel to their homes.

Is this really "selling"?

Yes, it is, in the sense that it requires a certain level of "selling" yourself and your skills. You have to make yourself known to clients and you have to make your services desirable to them. If you're so uncomfortable with the concept of selling anything (even yourself or your services) that you think you simply can't, then work at home positions might not work out for you unless you are a work at home employee for a specific employer in a telecommuting type of situation.

If you want to work at home and have your own business, though, you're going to have to learn to "sell" yourself. This is an integral part of a having any type of work at home business. You have to make yourself known to clients and you have to make your skills appealing to them. That is simply part of what you have to do.

With that said, though, it's still not the same thing to market yourself and your services as it is to sell something like skincare products, make up, and so on. In other words, there are many options to the "direct selling" that these types of businesses require you to do; there are many other things that you can do at home that simply require the "sale" of yourself and the services you provide.
