Now the first thing todo when thinking about online business ideasis to write down a list of your interests, yourpassions and your skills.

And when I say skills, youdon't have an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> be really extraordinarily talented atsomething to put it on the list.

You just have to have a startingpoint that's a step or two ahead of the person youare looking an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> help.

So you want to include allof your interests or passions in it as well, becauseyou want an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> do something that you're actually interested in.

Now, this list could includesmall business, bookkeeping, website design, videoediting, home health, fashion, fitness, cooking, managing ahousehold, caring for horses, protecting the environment, dance.

Even things like running, basketball, movies, video games, whatever.

This doesn't have an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> be complicated, so just don't overthink it.

Just write down all theideas that come an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> you.

We're just coming up with ideashere so the more the better.

You can always eliminatesome of the ideas later, but what you wanna do now isthink about the type of brand that you wanna create.

What is it that you wannahelp people to accomplish with this business that you're building? What will people want to seek you out for when they need help with something? Now keeping this list in mind,you need some business ideas on how an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> actually monetizesomething from your list.

In other words, what businessmodel will you deliver your product, service,or opportunity through? And this will become more clear as we an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>startan> talking about them.

But as we go through this list, you'll get some ideas onan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>howan> the things on your list, the skills or interests thatyou have, would fit with it.

Number five, resellingthrough drop shipping.

Here you typically have awebsite where you are simply selling other people's products.

If you've ever hunted for avery specific clothing item online, you'll oftenfind that there's a ton of different sites, different businesses that are actually offeringthe exact same products, made by the exact same manufacturers.

This is an example of drop shipping.

If you are passionate,say about the environment, then you could have a sitewhere you offer only products that are made throughenvironmentally responsible means.

Or if you just love your pet bird, you could sell products all about birds.

Now, if you're not familiarwith drop shipping, what it basically meansis that you're simply taking the order and thepayment from the customer, and then forwarding the orderinformation on to a wholesaler who handles all of thewarehousing, san style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>rage, and shipping.

The benefit being that youdon't need an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> buy the inventory, which can be a big upfront cost.

You also don't need tosan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>re that inventory, which saves you space and money, and you don't worry aboutany of the shipping.

But to get an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>startan>ed withsomething like this, you will need to think aboutbuilding an online store, you'll need an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> findcompanies that are willing to ship directly to the customer, and you will also need to set up some of the other logistics, say payment processingand customer service.

Number four, retailingyour own physical products.

Now you can create your own products or work with a manufacturer an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> create your own branded unique products.

It's a great opportunity, butdefinitely a lot is involved, and you want some in-depthtraining or a coach to guide you through that process.

There's a lot of movingparts in this process, and if your manufacturer is overseas, then it creates even morehoops an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> jump through.

And if you're creatingthe product by yourself, whether it's clothing orsoaps or crafts, or whatever, you may eventually run inan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>the issues where the demand is so high that you needto start outsourcing the manufacturing of your product.

Also, much like drop shipping,you need to build a website.

You need to get a paymentprocessor in place and figure out the customerservice aspect, all that stuff.

And on an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>p of that, you'regonna have to deal with the manufacturing, thesan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>rage and the shipping, and delivery, and thenreturns and refunds, and all that cusan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>merservice on an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>p of it.

So that is number four.

Number three, offering personal services, coaching, consultations,professional service, graphic design, video editing, voiceovers, article writing, website design.

If you're a master cook,you can actually offer one-on-one or even groupcooking lessons online through a video conferencing platform.

If you are skilled at bookkeeping, you can simply offer yourservices virtually online.

If you're a fitness buff,you could offer consultations with people to help them on their journey.

You can also create artwork and graphics where people do voiceoverwork for their videos or ads or audiobooks, and you can create, update, fix websites.

You can write articles forpeople to use on the websites.

This is one of the simplerways an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> get an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>startan>ed with an online business.

There are platforms that makeoffering professional services very easy, such as Fiverr.

Com or Upwork, but some of the thingsyou have to keep in mind and that you need to be really clear about your Terms of Serviceand your refund policy.

You also want an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> maybewrite up an agreement with your cusan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>mers, havethem sign with your clients, so that everyone's clear, and they agree on what is being deliveredand for how much money.

You'll also need a way an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> process payment and to send receipts.

Number two, partnering with a company an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> refer people to their products.

This is what we call affiliate marketing.

And as far as logistics go,this is one of the simplest and quickest ways to getstarted with an online business, because nearly all of the logistics are taken care of for you.

Now you're not creating the product, you're not fulfilling the orders, and you don't have an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> dealwith the payment processing or the customer service.

All you have an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> do is find the people who want to buy a product, and then refer them an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> awebsite that sells the product.

Now as far as commission ratesgo in affiliate marketing, it can vary widely.

Some of the companies that you may find, you're only earning one tofive percent of the sales.

Other times you can findaffiliate marketing opportunities where you're actually earning somewhere between 20 to 60% of the sales price, for referring people to aspecific product or service.

Now, what can you doaffiliate marketing for? Really almost every onlinestore has an affiliate program.

Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, Lowe's, Hulu.

Even iTunes has an affiliate program.

But all you're doing is makingreferrals to different stores and then when someone buyssomething from that online store, you get a cut of the profits.

Now if you're new to online business, and you want the simplest, easiest thing to get an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>startan>ed with, thenthis would probably be it.

Now before I go into the numberone online business idea, and possibly the most lucrative, just wanted to give you aheads up about a training that we created an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> dive further inan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> the different online business models, where we really lay outall of the pros and cons of each of the models, andhow to quickly get an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>startan>ed making auan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>mated sales in your business.

Alright, number one, creatingyour own digital products.

And when I say digital products, this could be anything that your cusan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan>mers would consume or receive online.

There's no physical productthat you need to worry about manufacturing or shipping.

Digital products are thingslike online training courses, eBooks, software programs,meal plans, diet plans, fitness programs, membership sites.

There are all sorts ofthings that you can take and put inan style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> a digitalformat and sell online.

We know a guy that sells atraining on how to jump higher.

Another young lady that sells a training on how to dress fashionably.

Now, if you're a music teacher, you can put together acourse on an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>howan> an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> play piano, or you could write yourown eBook about it.

If you write music, youcould sell it online.

There's a guy who has a membership site where teachers actually accessdone-for-you lesson plans that they pay for everymonth to get access to.

Now the awesome thing aboutselling digital products is that it's very scalable, meaning that you create the product once, and then you can keep selling it over and over and over again.

Can be very lucrative.

Now, there's two big thingsyou need an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>toan> do at this point if you are serious about gettingan online business started.

One is to figure out exactlywhat product, service, or opportunity you wanna sell.

And then, two is to decidewhich business model you want to work with.

If you have an interest inpets and you wanna make money fast as possible, you willprobably wanna just an style=”text-decoration: underline;”>startan> affiliate marketing, andfind a few pet stores that you can become an affiliate of.

If you have some skillwith graphic design, you could offer yourservices through a website like Fiverr or Upwork.

If you're a personal fitness trainer, you may want to create anonline training program and sell access to that.
