Writing about successful web business ideas used to be the main focus of this website but it’s been quite a while since I’ve shared my favorite start up ideas. Over the past 8 years or so I’ve kept in touch with the best ways to go about earning solid incomes online, between 2008 and 2011 earnings from my online business endeavors was my main source of income. Just for a quick background, it took me about 2.5 years to earn over $2,500 per month online consistently. I did that with less than a couple hundred bucks in initial investment and less than $300 per YEAR in overhead and expenses. My best year online was 2011 which brought in around $55,000. In 2009 I began growing an organic food business and spend most of my attention on that today and enjoy it very much. OK, enough of that, now for some advice, business ideas, and my picks for the best business to start in 2013 online using the Internet. The specific web business ideas I’m sharing in this article don’t require overhead or any employees what so ever. They also have next to ZERO start up costs, seriously, I pay less than $120 per YEAR for my best web businesses in Total.
Most Successful Web Business Ideas
Over the course of the past 8 or 9 years I’ve used several business ideas myself and studied hundreds more. About a year and half into this process I started to notice common themes among most of the successful web business ideas. They basically fell into three categories: (Of these 3 I’ll show You how to start 2 below)
- Affiliate Marketing
- Making Money With a Blog
- Online Store/Retail
Personally I didn’t spend much time on the last one because I was looking for more hands free and people free ways to make money. I currently have an online business that is in the retail market and I do use the Internet to market that business and that arm of the company makes good money. Affiliate marketing, simply put, is making money by promoting someone else’s products. Making money with a blog is about readership and advertising dollars. Many web business blogs combine both advertising dollars and affiliate marketing.
NOTE: There is a ton of outright crap online about how to earn money. Earning money with a web business idea is no different that earning money doing anything else, you have to work hard. All the bullshit about joining this business opportunity or that mlm is a dead end path for 95% of the people who try it. The business ideas I’m sharing in this article are not theories, I know eight or ten people personally who make very good incomes doing exactly what I’m sharing with you. The two specific people I’m going to introduce you to below are multi-millionaires. Most of us using the Internet to make money from home are not. The guys I know have been at it for few years and earn 30k and up.
Best Web Business Ideas For Beginners in 2013
Right now in this article I’m going to share with you what I would do if I was looking to start something right now and be earning money within a few weeks or months. The following two pieces of advice (if followed) are THE path for creating certain income that is both recurring and will grow over time. And that is the key, here’s why. When I first started earning online it was cents NOT dollars. Seriously I would make 75 cents one day and 30 cents the next. The thing is though, over the course of the month those “cent” earnings turned into dollars. I remember earing $50 dollars in one month and was all excited. Soon the first one hundred dollar month came. Fast forward two and a half years and I was earning $3,500 to $6,000 per month, that was really cool! Like spending 8 weeks on my sailboat during the summer of 2010 cool. No it wasn’t a yacht and the boat only cost me a few thousand dollars but during that eight weeks I earned about $6000 dollars and it was really really awesome to me. That’s what it’s all about. Figure out what you want to accomplish and do it. My goal was to generate $3,000 per month in passive income using the Internet. I wanted to do it in a way that, should I stop doing the “thing” that was earning money, I would earn for years to come. And I did that. It is still one of the most important and fulfilling goals I have ever reached.
Like I said it took me 2 1/2 years to reach that goal and I was motivated as hell. It would take longer today, the rules are a little bit different and there is way more “noise” that will waste your time. The fastest way to build a solid income using the Internet today is to do exactly what the top earners are doing. Finding a REAL top earner to show you step by step can be difficult, no, it is difficult. So that is what I’m going to do right now. The two Internet entrepreneurs I am going to steer you toward today have different business models but they overlap. It is not necessary (or a good idea) to get coaching from both simultaneously, so pick one. You will end up with the same result, basically, regardless of which one you choose. Jeremy Shoemaker is on of the top Internet marketing entrepreneurs online today, go meet Jeremy and watch his quick video. He has a great staff and his step by step coaching program is phenomenal in every way, trust me, you’ll see.
The second successful entrepreneur I am going to encourage you to check out is John Chow. If you are from the U.S. you probably don’t know him, If you’ve learned how to make a real income using the Internet, you probably do. He has a coaching program that cuts out and throws away all the time wasting tasks and all the noise. He laser focuses on how to set up and make money with a blog. Blogging is an awesome way to make money because of the freedom it offers the blog owner. This is what I was doing when I was on my two month vacation in Lake Michigan on my sailboat.
There is no person on the planet that is more qualified to show a complete beginner how build a successful business blog that is really a business. No overhead, no employees, no headaches and this is from my personal experience. Again, I’m a believer in learning from the best and when it comes to blogging there isn’t much of an argument, meet John Chow and let him show you how earn money with a blog. Watch his quick video here.
Make sure to come back and let us know how you are doing. And remember, it starts small. Most people quit because they don’t see immediate results, that isn’t how success works. Don’t quit your job right away. Just follow instructions. And don’t get side track with get rich quick schemes, and business in a box mlm’s. If you aren’t afraid to work but want a pay off for it learn from one of these guys and get to it. Building a successful web business is a special kind of success and it can really be magical. These to business ideas are two of the best businesses to start in 2013 and actually have something to show for it before Christmas. I wish you all the best in 2013, have a great year!
