“Only For Serious Entrepreneurs”
The Best Online Business Ideas For 2020
If you’re serious about making money online. And you want to leave the tired old system of working a “job”. Then read on…
The enticement of “easy money” online is a fallacy created by slick, get rich quick gurus. It’s easy to fall for these types of scams – I mean, who doesn’t want to get rich in the fastest time possible, huh?
But the reality has never been any different. If you’ve got the money to buy an existing successful business, that’s the fastest route to getting rich quick, (but you’d already been rich enough to buy into it).
So, what if you’re not that fortunate “yet”, and you’re looking to build a proper business from the ground up. Well here are several of the best online ventures you can start in the year ahead.
Note: Over time, your skills will compound, giving you more profits in the future. (focused time is never wasted)
Affiliate marketing is the best “starter” business because your start-up capital is negligible. In other words, you don’t need a lot of cash. Just plenty of “time”. And there are thousands of products or services you could promote as an affiliate. Click Here to learn what affiliate marketing all about.
Just make sure you’ve built a website first, and have attracted plenty of traffic. (lingo for customers).
Starting your website nowadays is a cinch. You don’t have to learn code or any technical stuff – (if I can do it : ).
WordPress is the number one solution for business builders online. And there are thousands of themes you can choose to build from, (A theme is the layout of the site, usually formatted by a technician).
I use “generate press” for streamofmoney.com. Go “Here“, and I’ll show you how to build a website for FREE.
Like I said at the start though – there are “No” shortcuts. You have to want to do this. And is one of the reasons you’ll pick a niche you’re passionate about. (Because over time (if you don’t), you’ll lose interest and want to start something else).
Have in your mind, a yearly plan, three years, five years and ten years. You’ll want to develop this venture into a long term exercise. And if you do, you’ll never become overwhelmed or stressed. And if you’ve already acquired the habit of stress “go here” for some relief.
Note: The other business ideas will later be incorporated into your business as it develops.
You’ll want to learn how to become a pro’ at copywriting, and write how you “speak” (not the way you were taught at school).
Selling Information Products
There are millions of dollars to be made selling info’ products. Especially “How To … ” ebooks. The internet is where most people go to learn “how to”.
If you’ve just purchased a new set of fancy outdoor lights for your garden. And they aren’t working as you expect!. Google will have the answer for you. When you’re pondering over a right or wrong debate with a friend, “Google will sort it out for you”. (I think you get the gist)
People are always searching on the internet for instant answers to their “problems”. And as it happens, you’re just the person to answer their queries, (depending on your niche of course).
Tip: When you write a “how-to” product. Make sure you show the customer precisely, (step by step), how it’s done. Being specific is key.
It’s a lot of work to write up your products, but when you’re done, the rewards will send your business into the stratosphere.
There are plenty of sites similar to “ebookjunkie.com”, where you can find ready-made books with resell rights. But make sure you read through the licence agreement first, before you sell them. (As with any business venture, “due diligence” is a must).
Selling Digital Marketing Services
This is where you can use your skills to help promote businesses online. You might be a dab hand at graphic design, if so, and you haven’t got your foot in the door yet. Send some free examples of your work. Or help a friend promote their business for free, and use this as your first testimonial. It’s always a good idea to get your name out there before you start demanding fees.
Having set up an affiliate business, you’ll have learnt all about SEO and content management, (I told you all the other businesses would eventually work together). And there are thousands of owners baying for talented writers. You might just be that person?
When you’ve built your first website for your affiliate business, you can charge companies to make theirs for them. (And the money keeps pouring in : ).
Note: It’ll take some time to build traction with your business. But when it does, you’ll be ecstatic. There are so many ways you can leverage your “new” skill-set. But you have to start taking action, NOW. Keep in mind how much traction your business has gained in the past three years?
And will you be able to answer that question in three years with a big smile on your face?
Digital Marketing Arbitrage
This is quite a good business for you if you’re savvy about most of the digital marketing world. All you have to do is find companies that need social media help, graphic design, blogs etc. And then sell them a contract of said work, then outsource the work to freelancers. It’s no suitable for beginners in the industry. Although in a few years when your skills have developed, this is another “notch” to your belt.
As you can see, there’s a multitude of problems you can solve for clients, once you built up your skill-set. Start small, and then expand your horizons. One of the mistakes a lot of newbies make is trying to run before they walk. (I’m going to be looking for someone to do my social media soon). And I’m one of the thousands out there, searching for help in certain areas. The opportunity for you is massive, and it’s likely to get even more significant at time goes by. So make a start now, plant your seeds and nurture them carefully, ready for the big harvest.
If you’ve been taking notice, the other opportunity for you is to freelance the skills you have now to business owners, while you’re building “your” business. (Win-win).
Do what you love. Because it’s a recipe for success and as stated in a previous post, (you’ll never work another day in your life).
Start off building your website, and over the months and years ahead. You’ll be surprised how much knowledge you’ll pick up, which will catapult your success, surpassing all the dreamers out there. If you do nothing, “No Thing” will change. So, baby steps, every day and your future is “guaranteed”.
Your future is “NOW”, don’t wait until tomorrow.
Make sure you dive in and leave me a comment below, to help others find their way. (Not everyone is as confident as you ; ).
PS: The businesses I’ve shown you above will be part of your ongoing knowledge. But only if you make it happen! Keep reading the articles here at streamofmoney.com. Because they build on one another. The code is scattered in amongst the words you’ll read : )
