How To Make Money With An Online Business Ventures

The advent of today’s economy has caused many people to research the reality of making money at home.  And many of you are ending your search with online jobs that generally pay a relatively low wage or salary in exchange for the benefits you receive by working out of the comfort of your own home. When it comes to considering a better income with an actual home business, it should be a natural defense to be a little timid and cautious about the many opportunities available today.  Always ask yourself, “How much money do I need to invest?” How much technical and/or marketing knowledge do you need? How can you distinguish the scams from the legitimate methods to make money from online business opportunities?

It’s only natural to have these thoughts and reservations and you really need to get the answers.  But the freedom and financial rewards that you can have with an online business, as opposed to working an online job, definitely make it worth your while to at least consider these options.

1. The easiest way to start is by developing a business that features your passions and expertise.  Ask yourself some questions such as:

  • Are you a good writer or designer?
  • Do you have a flair for cooking?
  • Do you love gardening?
  • Do you know a lot about a specific subject?
  • Do your friends and family come to you for advice about certain things?
  • Could you turn your knowledge into a consulting business?

Do some deep thinking about what you are good at and passionate about. Once you’ve figured that out, do some research on who would want and need your product/service. You’ll then want to set up your own website or blog based on what you’re selling and target it towards who you’re selling it to. Don’t be intimidated by this step! Creating your own site is extremely easy these days and it doesn’t have to be expensive. The next step is to get traffic to your site. And this is a topic for a whole other article because there are so many ways to do this, and many of them are free.

2. If you don’t feel comfortable coming up with your own products or services to market, you can make money from online business products or services that belong to other people. One way to do this is through affiliate marketing.

There are many places you can start to look for things to market, but the most popular sites are ClickBank and Commission Junction. Anytime you make a sale on the products you promote, you are paid commissions. Network Marketing is another route to go if you don’t have your own merchandise.

There are hundreds of Network Marketing companies to choose from and they offer all kinds of products and services. With network marketing, you pay a relatively low fee (this varies from company to company) to get started and then you earn commissions on products/services that you sell as well as on the people you recruit into the company as part of your sales team. The right type of “coaching” mentality is required if you do want to get into network marketing since much of your success will depend on how well you can lead your team. One word of caution, beware of Network Marketing businesses…..my experience tells me most are scams, sure people make money but it’s only the people on the top. Study the company you’re interested in, call actual members to ask questions….be blunt, ask if they’re making any money, if they are, ask them how much! If they won’t answer, then move on to the next one.

There really and truly are ways to make money online. Most people working online businesses are good hard working people. As in any profession there are scammers….so follow your gut. If you’re not feeling  right about one method, simply move on to the next. Believe me, there are plenty of business models to follow and try out if you are really interested in makeing money online. Here are some resources that will help you, I use these and recommend them highly:

Can You Really Make Money Doing Nothing With Internet Marketing

The short answer is a resounding “NO”! At least not if you are new to marketing online. Not at first. But most everyone dreams of being able to make money doing nothing. And internet marketing can be used to eventually make passive residual income. Residual income is income that continues to be generated after the initial effort has been expended. So, if you work hard and do things right in the beginning, you will continue to earn off of this effort, even long after you have moved on to other things. One thing you should do is join a membership that teaches internet marketing, one such membership is Earn1KaDay.

Success in internet marketing usually comes very slowly. You could go on for years without seeing any return, but if you are consistent and continue to work at it, you will gradually begin to see the money rolling in. And once this happens, you will see the snowball effect take place and eventually you will be able to make money doing nothing!

So what do you need to work at? You need to bring traffic to whatever it is that you are promoting – to your blog or website or to your affiliate product website. The more people you can get to your website, the more sales you will make.

So what are some of the pros and cons of internet marketing?

First of all, if you prefer to have a regular “guaranteed” paycheck where the amount of time you put in equals the amount of money you receive, internet marketing is probably not for you. If you don’t like to study and learn new things, learning internet marketing is probably not for you. If you need someone else to motivate you or manage your activities, internet marketing is not for you.

One of the most obvious pros of internet marketing is that you don’t have a boss telling you what to do. You work for yourself and make all the decisions. Being able to work whenever and wherever you please is a great goal to shoot for.

Your pay is not an hourly wage or salary so there is no limit to how much money you can make. Let’s say for example that you decide to write your own e-book (it may sound difficult to you now but this is a very attainable goal if you do just a little bit of training). You spend a lot of time on this e-book and then you make money off of the sales for years to come – you just need to make sure that you are driving traffic to the sales page of your e-book.

This is what passive residual income is. . .and it is one of the greatest benefits that internet marketing offers. Putting out or representing a quality product once or twice a year will have a great impact on your income for the months or years, even if you’re not working. Again, that’s how you can make money doing nothing.
