Finding ways to make money online usually results in a load of junk, such as receiving payments to read emails or full surveys; or pay money to buy unnecessary e-books and courses for that magic formula. You should ignore all that “easy way to make money online” nonsense. Remember that if it looks too good to be true, then it probably is.
So how do you build a business and make money online ? Basically there are three ways that are: affiliate marketing, selling your product or offering a service. I will go through these options with you so you can choose the one that is right for you.
If you do not have a product to sell or a service to offer affiliate marketing is a good place to start. The general idea behind affiliate marketing is that you promote the product of another person and that (the provider) you pay a commission. The provider will provide a Web page that you can promote, which is commonly known as “Gateway “. This way the seller knows which affiliate got the sale because they can track which “Gateway ” The order came through. The seller deals with all processing and deliveries of the order, focusing on the promotion of the Gateway page.
Search for affiliated companies using Google and scan the listings of everything it says “Top paid affiliate programs” or something like that. Look for the products you think you can offer on your website or blog. Some companies offer different sizes of banners that you could put on your website that could result in a sale if one of your visitors clicks on the banner and makes a purchase. Look at what the product is and offers a lot of commissions.
Note: Some companies offer a “Network marketing ” option that is often called a pyramidal scheme. I am not suggesting that these companies should be avoided, but I would suggest that you be very careful, especially if you are asking for a membership fee. If you are unsure of a company I recommend you enter a search term like “(scam company name) ” and see what the public says. There are many people who use the line “is (company name) a scam ” as part of their corporate review in order to promote it. Be sure to read as much as possible from other people.
Sell your Product
Your own product could be something you create, like a book or a piece of software. You can earn a good income if you can write or program. Information Marketing is very popular as people often try how to do something. Maybe you can make luxury jewelry and want to teach others how to do it. If you have a good knowledge of something or an ability, then you can share it with the world through an ebook. Amazon allows you to send your book to them and will offer it for sale on their websites.
Basically everything you can create can be sold online either through you or through a retailer that is willing to stock the product for you. I remember selling the games I programmed at the Atari ST through the PD libraries as Licenceware where I was paid a commission. Of course, the product doesn’t have to be something you did. You can buy and sell items via EBay and Amazon. There are wholesalers who offer bulk products that can be sold on the market or in a car startup sale. You can also take the cheap stuff from the auto-start sales and get a profit on them.
Everyone likes to eat so if you can cook or bake you can sell food. Of course, you need to make sure you have the health and hygiene certificates you need before you start. Only the other day I was looking for Halal cakes and the two places I found were wholesalers who require me to buy pie palette. Well, since I don’t have a big freezer or a fridge, that’s not good for me. So an idea would be to buy directly from the vendor and sell them on the market, or in small quality for the locals if you have a car or a van.
The general idea is to offer products that people want. There was a story about a Muslim woman who loved to eat prepared dishes. However, there are no halal versions, so started online business of selling halal prepared meals. With Islam officially religion in the growing world fasted could have a good market there for Halal foods. After all there are many people who are limited to their local food and may want to eat other meat products other than kebab or curry. Another popular trend at the moment is retro-gaming. The younger generation is interested in the old computer games.
