Making Sense of Money Making Opportunities
By Awad Sayeed
With all the opportunities available to the start up netrepreneur it's no wonder so many people are confused about where they should start. The first step is determining your goals. Do you want a good side income to supplement your already existing one? Or do you want a full time income complete with the longer hours involved? Each one has its own benefits and negatives. After determining this, we can see your options.
The basic methods of online income building include: affiliate marketing, selling on eBay, opening an online store, advertising, or some form of online work for companies. There are varying degrees of success associated with each.
Affiliate marketing is highly lucrative and at the same time contains a high failure rate. Your ability in selling a product to a consumer determines just how much you succeed. You are in fact acting as a salesman online, and face the same realities that salesmen face day to day. That includes getting paid only when a sale is made. If you can deal with this, then affiliate marketing is a great way to make money.
Everyone has considered selling one thing or another on eBay. And why not? It is the world's largest marketplace. There is nothing else that can get you the exposure to the broad range of customers that eBay can. Of course, being able to secure merchandise can be hassle. If you are confident in your product sourcing and pricing, or have access to goods that other people do not, then eBay might be the way to go.
Opening an online store is a highly risky venture that can generate mixed returns. On the one hand are the stories of successes like Amazon.com. On the other hand (and the much larger pile) are all the failed startups online. If this interests you, then an online store can be not only a great way to make money, but a great way to hone your skills in many fields. Pricing, advertising, customer relations are all aspects of e-tailing that are part of the experience.
Maybe you already own a website that is visited by a steady amount of people. Maybe you want to start one up. If so, monetizing the website (in a non-obtrusive manner) can generate positive yields. This includes blogs, which have been gaining popularity at an exponential rate. Advertising, as mentioned earlier should be non-obtrusive and well integrated into the site. If it is just thrown around sloppily, it can in fact be detrimental to your traffic.
Data and survey work online are perhaps the safest methods of making money. They are assignments given to you (or chosen by you at your discretion) that offer fixed returns. This can be great for someone looking to make a great side income or a full time yet secure income.
