Since the earliest days of internet marketing, entrepreneurs have been perpetually on the lookout for as many ways to make money as they could find. After all, it is only just over 20 years since the full possibilities of running an online business became apparent. The result is that there are ever increasing opportunities to generate income from the internet.
Many, many people have, at some stage in their lives, bought or sold some item or items through eBay. For most this is a great way to clear the loft of the accumulation of books, games, videos, jigsaws, old photographic equipment, etc. whilst making a bit of money in the process People also turn to eBay to find items at low prices in rather the same way they may browse the charity shops in their high street. There are, however, ‘professional’ sellers who make a very good living by sourcing items of interest, making a decent profit and a good living from their eBay business.
However, eBay will not create the opportunity to earn really life-changing income which is what many are looking for. People want a means of becoming their own boss, working from home to create a quality lifestyle which the world of employment cannot offer. Here are some of the ways which are proving most successful for those of an entrepreneurial spirit.
Affiliate Marketing is the selling of products which have been created by vendors and who make their products available for others to sell. These products will be promoted through the likes of “Clickbank” or “JVZoo” who not only provide the products but also the full back up of marketing tools, banking facilities, etc. All the affiliate has to do is sign up and promote their chosen products through their preferred method in exchange for very generous commissions, up to 75% of the sale price. These products are usually digital so there is no physical product to pack and ship. The vendor deals with the delivery of the products anyway.
Writing and selling eBooks has always been a popular, easy and cheap way to make money online. Writing an eBook on a favourite topic is something that almost anyone can do. If you can talk with enthusiasm about a subject close to your heart then you can write about it too. Many highly successful eBooks consist of only about 50 or 60 pages, so you are not writing a novel or a massive erudite reference book. All that is required is your knowledge of a certain topic to share with like-minded people. If you really don’t feel that you can put your thoughts down in writing you can outsource the work for the price of an evening out.
Both affiliate marketing and an eBook business have one thing in common; the products you are selling are downloadable so your business can be set up to run on autopilot. The beauty of this is that your business generates Passive Income. To find out more about Passive Income, click HERE.
Selling licensed products is another favourite way to generate income. This particular area of opportunity is different from Affiliate Marketing in that the marketer purchases the retail rights to a product. There are a number of different kinds of Private Label Rights which can be purchased. The Master Resale Rights are far and away the best option as the marketer has permission to rebrand the products, that is edit them in any way they wish to turn them into a totally unique product which is all their own. The cost of buying these resale rights can vary significantly, but the more you pay the greater the profit potential.
One of the newest businesses available, which is a variation on eBook writing, is Kindle Publishing. Originally, existing books were put on to Kindle but that is now changing as more and more authors and publishers are producing books specifically for publication straight on to Kindle.

There are other ways to generate income online too (some of which are variations on the above) but those listed above are probably the most popular and most successful. For a comprehensive view of these and other aspects of running an online business, visit the Internet Marketer’s Manual.
Good luck in your business ventures.
