Online Ebiz: No such thing as a Free Lunch but you can get to go to the Feast!

What’s the best way for YOU to make money online?

What’s the best kind of business for you to start? Will you write an e-book and sell it? Join an affiliate program and promote it? You could create an Ebook and put your affiliate links inside, making a commission everytime someone clicks through and buys your affiliate product? Maybe you’ll get a great website up and running with lots of Pay-Per-Click advertising paying you day and night? You could sell a physical product, directly, through eBay, or via a drop shipper (someone who creates/stores the product, then packs and ships it as directed by you) or you could sell via affiliate sites like Amazon.com or commission Junction?

Did you know you can now set up your own affiliate store on eBay. It’s an automatic store that updates it’s content on a regular basis and takes care of all the credit-card processing too. All you have to do is get traffic to visit the site and collect your percentage of the sales made.

All very well, But…

The problem is not finding good business opportunities on the Internet. The problem is that selling business opportunities is one of the biggest business opportunities on the Internet! Tantalising offers are everywhere and slick Internet marketeers are ready to take your credit card details and exploit that human belief that continues to think it is possible to get something for nothing. Beware! Behind every innocent-seeming business opportunity there may be a nasty scam just waiting to exploit your trust.

Even the genuine opportunities are presented in special marketing copy, language that cleverly hits your psychological buy buttons without fully explaining that even the most straightforward workable plan for business online still requires effort, time and investment to make it work. It’s easy to forget that the people who make business ideas work are the people who work at them.
