You can live anywhere you want, set your own schedule, and work as little or as much as you want. You can start your own online business, and manage it, from the comfort of your home. Depending on how fast or big you want to scale your business to grow.
No business or marketing experience is needed either. It is comforting to know that it is possible to become an entrepreneur, and anyone can do it.
Just take a look at my short blogs at WA from my start, and how quick a
person can learn without any internet experience what-so-ever!
Equalizing The Playing Field
The internet is the great equalizer, in the business world and making money specifically. It has leveled the playing field. Anyone can start a money making online business, anyone with a computer, that is. But here is the best thing of all, no technical experience is needed.
You don’t have to know how to build websites. No programming knowledge is required at all. Today there are plenty of tools that you can use to build an online business that makes the technical work a lot easier than it was in the past.
I actually received one of them get-rich-quick emails about this very subject and that is how I became introduced. I started researching a little and found just how much opportunity the internet possessed these days and decided that I did not want to miss out.
My Quick Success And Your Opportunity
I personally joined the Free Starter Membership at WealthyAffiliate, and within 5 weeks time I had a website indexed in google, which you can see here at:
and started building my 2nd website. Not to mention the relationships that I have acquired as well.
All with in 5 weeks! It takes a good work ethic and enthusiasm, but if you have that then that could be you too!
Best of all, you do not need a lot of start-up capital. In fact, you can get many internet businesses up and running with no money at all, because many free services facilitate the possibility.
For example, you can set up a website or blog for free using my #1 platform, Wealthy Affiliate. You can leverage a third-party site like Amazon or eBay to sell goods with no inventory costs.
You use their selling platform in exchange for giving them a cut of your sales.
And this is just the start of the many available no-money, e-commerce, startup solutions.
Let’s consider five of the top ways to start an online business and make money with little or no cost at all.
Basically, you pick a profitable niche for your online business, and then you find an affiliate partner who has products available in that niche.
CJ Affiliate –(formerly Commission Junction)
Between them, they offer just about any digital product (like e-books, audio files, video files) or physical product you can think of.
With affiliate marketing, you offer the products for sale on your blog or website.
Each product has a unique link that tracks back to your account, with your affiliate partner. A person who clicks on the link is taken to your partners shopping cart for checkout.
Once they buy, that purchase is recorded and you receive a commission.
It varies depending on the affiliate partner, but is generally 5% to 25% for physical products like Amazon and eBay, and 50% to 80% with digital information products, like Clickbank.
As you can see, there is little risk on your part, and no investment needed either. Just like with drop shipping, your only costs will be marketing and advertising, to drive traffic and generate the sale.
There is also free ways to generate traffic with search engine optimization, also known as SEO, just for example.
The key difference between this and drop shipping is that the business model is even more hands off. All you have to do is provide a link for the customer to click, and the merchant handle’s everything.
Billing, order fulfillment, customer service, etc.
All you have to do is handle the marketing, to get your visitors to buy the product.
The great thing, and the way to approach this is, that you are wanting to help people.
That is, and should always be, your drive. The sales and commission you will be making is an added bonus.
Of course, we want to make money, but you want to focus in a aspect of helping people and gaining trust.
Once you have the trust of your visitors, they will be more likely to buy from you. You can do this all through your website, social media, email marketing, blogging, or whatever method you choose.
Take yourself for example, don’t you want to purchase from a person that you feel you can trust, other than someone you know nothing about.
That is why I always mention and try to throw my personal experience in, to gain your trust, and to prove that I am not someone just trying to make a quick buck on you, talking about something that I have no clue about.
See where I am heading with this. As I need to get back on topic here, I will be creating a post covering all of this for you too.
After they click the affiliate link, it is out of your hands. You don’t have to ship products. And you certainly don’t have to maintain an inventory.
All you have to do is focus on free ways to market your online business.
Affiliate marketing really is one of the most “hands-off” types of online businesses you can start.
Blogging From The Bedroom
You have expertise, a passion, or interest for something, you are ready to start making money with a blog and/or your own website.
With a service like Wealthy Affiliate and Blogger.
you can start up your blog totally free. You can also create your own website and secure your own hosting.
Which is generally the route I recommend, as many free blogging sites have restrictions on what you can do, including making money or advertising.
You may think blogging is all about writing. And it can be if that is what you want to do, written blog posts are just the start.
You can post photos, videos, and links to other sites, re post news and other articles… anything is game, really, as long as it relates to your niche.
They key is that you want to post original content that is useful to your target audience, and to post on a regular basis.
That is the best way to get ranked in the search engines, and to also get your audience to take action.
Remember that you are helping by giving factual information, and that ultimately leads to trust with your audience.
I Am Afraid Of What To Market
Well Don’t be, because there is literally an affiliate market in anything that you can think of. So make sure that it is something that you are really passionate about, want to learn about, or something that you really enjoy!
You know my Dad always told me that if you do something that you like for a living, you will never work a day in your life. Now think about that?
I am going to leave you with one more thing here. The only person that you are destined to be, is the person that you decide to become!
