Best Internet business models
There has (arguably) never been a better time in history to start an online business. Nowadays, there are tools available for building websites without the need for any technical knowledge. There are also cost effective methods of advertising that can give you a great return on investment without a huge upfront cost.
Best of all, even if you don’t have your own product, you can still build an online business that frees you from your job. In this article, I’ll explain 5 of the top online business models for 2014 that anyone can start, and profit from quite quickly with some effort.
Starting a blog is now easier than ever. By leveraging the power of free blogging platforms like WordPress and Blogger.com you can begin publishing posts on a topic that you enjoy and gather an audience relatively quickly. The key to successful blogging consists of two things: quality content and consistency.
Before you start a blog, you should pick a topic that you actually enjoy writing about – if not, you will quickly tire of producing regular content.
Once your blog has a decent amount of content, you can think about how to monetize it. Once you blog becomes well known, you’ll probably find that advertisers come to you, but in the meantime you can place Google Ads (or similar) or ads for suitable affiliate companies. Even better, think of products and services you can sell directly – perhaps consultancy services related to your niche, or specialist eBooks.
2. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing involves promoting products from other companies on the Web for a fixed percentage of the sale price. For example, popular products like diet pills often turn to affiliate marketers to get their product promoted. They pay affiliates around $25-$35 per sale. They can afford to do this because they make the money back by continuously selling more products to the customer.
