Finding ways to make money online usually leads to a lot of junk, such as: B. for reading e-mails or completing surveys. or pay money to buy useless e-books and courses on this magic formula. You should ignore all of this “easy way to make money online” nonsense. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.
How do you build a business and make money? There are basically three options: affiliate marketing, selling your own product or offering a service. I’ll go over these options with you so you can choose the one that’s right for you.
If you don’t have an affiliate marketing product for sale or a service to offer, this is a good place to start. The general idea behind affiliate marketing is that you are promoting someone else’s product and that person (the seller) pays you a commission. The provider provides you with a website that you can promote and that is commonly referred to as the “gateway” page. In this way, the provider knows which partner has received the sale, as he can track the “gateway” through which the order was received. The provider takes care of all order fulfillment and delivery, while you focus only on promoting your gateway page.
Search Google for “Affiliate Companies” and search for “Top Paying Affiliate Programs” or something similar. Look for products that you think you might have on your website or blog. Some companies offer banners of various sizes that you can place on your website. This can result in a sale when one of your visitors clicks on the banner and makes a purchase. Take a look at what the product is and they will offer a lot of commission.
Note: Some companies offer a “Network Marketing Option” often referred to as a Pyramid Scheme. I am not suggesting avoiding these companies, but I would suggest that you be very careful, especially if they charge a membership fee. You are not sure about a company. I recommend you type in a search term like “(company name scam)” and see what the public is saying. There are many people who use the line “Is (company name) a scam” as part of their review. Make sure you read as much from other people as you can.
SELL YOUR OWN PRODUCT
Your own product can be something you create yourself, such as: B. a book or software. You can make a good income if you can write or program. Information marketing is very popular as people often look for ways to do something. Maybe you can make fancy jewelry and want to teach others how to do it. If you have a good knowledge or skill, you can share them with the world through an e-book. With Amazon, you can submit your book to them and list it for sale on their websites.
Basically anything you can make yourself can be sold online either through yourself or through a retailer who is ready to stock the product for you. I remember that I sold games that I programmed on the Atari ST through PD Libraries as licenseware, where they paid me a commission. Of course, the product doesn’t have to be something you made. You can buy and sell items on eBay and Amazon. There are wholesalers who offer products in bulk that you can sell in the market or at a car boot sale. You can also pick up things cheaply from car boot sales and make a profit with it.
Everyone likes to eat. So if you can cook or bake, then you can sell groceries. Of course, you need to make sure you have the necessary health and hygiene certificates before you start. Just the other day I was looking for halal cakes and the two places I found were wholesalers asking me to buy pallets of cakes. Now that I don’t have a large freezer or refrigerator, that’s not good for me. So an idea could be to buy them directly from the supplier and sell them in the market, or in smaller qualities to the local population 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 liked to eat ready meals. However, since there were no Halal versions, she started a business selling Halal ready-made meals. Since Islam is officially the fastest growing religion in the world, there could be a good market for halal food there. After all, there are many people who limit themselves to their local take-away food and may want to eat other meat products than kebabs or curries. Another popular trend right now is retro gaming. The younger generation is interested in older computer games.
A SERVICE OFFERED
Do you have a skill that you can offer to people? Maybe you can fix computers or cars. Maybe you can work well in the garden. Maybe you can offer bespoke furniture? If you can dab or paint and decorate well with a range of tools, you can turn it into a profitable business. Create your own website, have some cards printed, and spread the word in your community. List your services in your advertising and make sure your prices are competitive in your area. Think about your talents and how you can make money from them.
