I had been trying to do some small business since I was in university time. However after I graduated and start my full-time career, I found it difficult to start a business as most traditional business:
1. Need a lot of time to run
2. Need some big amount of start up capital
So instead of starting my own business, I try to go into investment. I have try to invest in stock markets and properties. But both are just a starting point. As I continue in investing, I need more fund for my investment capital. Although my current job salary is ok, but I wanted to get some other streams of income so that I wont be solely depends on my main income.
After long long time of searching, I discovered internet-base business. The good things of internet-base business is that it can be start on part-time basis and there is no need big amount of startup capital to start with. Futher more internet-base business has a lot of revenue potential with passive income. However there are so many ways to make money online, just far too many expert claim that they can tell you how to make money online. The more I read, the more I become confuse. I know that I will need to pick only 1 and 2 to focus on it. So I figure out a few that are suitable for my situation:
1. Affiliate Marketing
2. Create and sell e-book
The strategy are the same, I need to find a niche market with something that I expert with and write about it. If people find my knowledge useful to them, then they will come.
For affiliate marketing mainly the strategy is to provide good content to pre-sell my affiliate product. There are so many affiliate programmes out there like amazon.com, richdad.com, ebook products, health products and many other products. So I need to find a niche market and create a good content site to presell those affiliate product. However a good content site needs a lot of writing and good knowledge on the niche market. Consideration like what domain name to choose, what keyword that people are searching are also important. One of the hosting that specialize in creating content site that I know of is site build it:
Below are some of the good content sites created on site build it:
Another focus is to create and sell an e-book using a killer sales letter. For this one I really need to be real expert in the subject that I write. Below are some of the killer sales letter that sells e-book:
Currently these are the directions that I will focus on. Since I am a beginner in this I will keep on experimenting until I find a way that works for me.
