What is the best business to start? That’s a open question that has a lot of answers. Obviously, one thing that you should look for in a new business start-up is how much money is it going to make? How much money is it going to require to get started? A profitable business is desired by most people looking to get started with a new gig. If you have to spend a lot of money to go into business, make sure it makes sense. You may have heard of Return on Investment or ROI. I am sure you have heard this statement made many times… “It takes money to make money”
Someone has to sell something
In every business that I am aware of… something has to be sold for the business to make money. There may be some things out there that I am unaware of, but I am pretty sure you can take everything back to sales. Good salespeople make the most money. Most of the truly successful people I know earned their money by selling something.
If you are working for a paycheck, you are selling your time. This is great for a lot of the population. Businesses need workers willing to sell their time so that they can deliver a product or service to the consumer. Everyone can not be in business for themselves.. Can they? When you sell your time, you are essentially a small business of one performing a service to another company.
If you are on this page, then you are probably interested in new ideas or new ways to make money on the side or maybe as a career. You probably do not have a lot of money to invest in a new business. Here are a few ideas that you may want to pursue.
Small Business Ideas
Sell things that you can deliver personally.
- Have you got old toy collections gathering dust?
- Do you have any antiques that may be worth some money to others?
- Can you make anything that people want to buy?
- Can you do anything that people would rather pay for than do themselves?
- Can you offer a service that others are unable to do themselves?
Sell things that other people or businesses can deliver.
- Have you ever bought anything that you know you could sell to others?
- Do you know anyone that needs help building their business?
- Do you know anyone that needs more customers?
- Have you heard of affiliate marketing?
Internet Marketing and Websites
While it is possible in this age of computers and the Internet to start something and be successful without a website, I don’t know any business that would be hurt by having a web presence. Some businesses only exist for web sales or website marketing. I know people that make all of their income selling things that other people or businesses deliver. This is Affiliate Marketing. It is probably one of the easiest ways to get started with a new business.
Are you ready to get started with Affiliate Marketing?
It takes an idea, a little effort and a website. Eventually you will need to buy a domain and probably invest in website hosting…but you don’t have to do that now to get started making money in Affiliate Marketing. You can create your first site for free and see if you like it. Once you get your website started, I will give you access to free training to build your site and marketing business. Tools that I use every day in my business. Good Luck and let me know if you have any questions.
Yep right on man. Affiliate Marketing is the place to get started with business and those free Siterubix sites are easily the best available.
Thanks for the comment. I know you have had success with the siterubix sites. Have you seen how easy it is now to convert one of those sites to a new domain?
The best part of affiliate marketing is the low startup costs. Folks complain about $10 here or there, and whatever the cost of education is, but really, most businesses take hundreds of thousands (yes, even small businesses) to start up. With affiliate marketing, I spend $400 in the first YEAR. I spend more than that on coffee! (True, think, $1 per day is $365, right?) No other business allows you to do that.
That’s true Nathaniell! Spend a little bit and start-up a nice business. Its not get rich overnight, but how long would you have to work at a new McDonald’s before you can show a profit?
If you were looking to start-up a Mcdonald’s, you would need $1 to 2 million ready to invest in franchise fees and other expenses.
