This post goes through four of the best Internet home business options based around sales and services. The market is awash with different types of opportunities but they can be broadly categorized into selling products for a living or offering services that can be easily transferred online.
One of the growing sales channels to consider is affiliate marketing. This entails setting up your own website and promoting other people’s products. Monies made through commissions on each sale that is made via your website. Many legitimate affiliate programs from the likes of Amazon and Click Bank provide simple interfaces to linking to their checkout process. The major profits can really be made if you are proficient in using web marketing tools and writing good content for your own websites.
The older more traditional approach to sales online is to set up an e-commerce website. Initial research should always be done on eBay to gauge what prices and market trends might exist before committing to purchasing your own domain. Creating your own e-commerce website is relatively cheap to do and you could even start leveraging online retailers to resell your products.
By contrast, offering online services is probably where most of the potential Internet home business opportunities lie. In particular freelance work is widely available for writers, recruiting agents, virtual assistants, consultants and other trades. You only have to look at the want ads in Craigslist to see what some of the monitor is for specific skills as well as the going rates. Other websites related to specific areas (e.g. Technorati for technical skills) can provide even greater potential.
Finally, one Internet home business which is easy to setup and operate is blogging for a living. The downside is however that the success rates are not high. The problem is that many niches are now too full with existing blogging communities for individuals entering the market to make a success of themselves. The key really is to pick a niche market quite carefully with relatively few competitors and write passionately about the subject.
