When times are tough and people try to find new ways to make some extra cash, the Internet seems like a good way to start a business venture. Some online businesses take a full-time effort for them to be successful, while others only take a few hours or less per day to run in order to gain the desired income.
Sell Domain Names
If you have a knack for coming up with good names and titles, selling domain names may be an easy, profitable online business to start. A domain name is what goes between the “www” and the “.com” of a web address. A memorable domain name can make a business soar, and if you have thought of a unique one and are able to register it, you can sell that domain to a business or person seeking online success. To start this business, you will need to register a list of domain names. Create a website and post the domain names you have for sale. If you do not have many people seeking your services, consider finding websites that have less-than-ideal web addresses, and let the owner know you have the perfect domain name for them. When you contact a potential customer in this manner, you will need to explain how your domain name can earn her extra revenue.
If you love to get a great shopping deal, consider starting a site that offers online coupons and promotions. Create a blog or website where you advertise either daily deals or deals by category. However, if you do not have a lot of money to start an Internet business, consider starting a free blog. Then become an affiliate of stores and online services. The affiliates will provide you with coupon codes and graphics you can place on your site free of charge. When someone is on your site and clicks on an advertisement or link and purchases a product, you earn a commission.
If web design is your passion, take advantage of your talent by starting a web design Internet business. Create a dazzling website to show off your talents. Use the space as an online portfolio, a way for new clients to contact you and a way for you to share advice with web design wannabes. Place ads for sites that sell fonts, graphics and webpage templates, so you can also earn extra commission from sales through your site.
