With so many online business opportunities on the web, how do you choose the best one for you? The best place to start is to evaluate the various types that are available. In this article we will look at two:
#1: Digital Information Product Reseller
With this type of online business opportunity you are given the right to resell one or more digital information products such as ebooks or downloadable software. The seller will typically provide you with a professionally designed sales page and graphics. Setting the website up will require some - you do not need to handle sales or returns
time, money, and effort on your part.
For example, you will usually need to register a domain name and sign up for hosting so you can upload your sales page on the web. You will also need to set up a merchant account to accept online payments. Next, you will need to set up a "thank you" page where your buyers will be re-directed to download the info-product they purchase from you. In addition, you may also want to purchase some security software to protect your download link.
Once your website is set up you will want to put together a marketing plan to drive traffic to it. As part of the marketing plan you will want to have an ezine newsletter customers can subscribe to. The easiest way to do this to get an autoresponder service which automatically enrolls customers who want to subscribe, and unenrolls those who wish to unsubscribe.
If customers have problems downloading their information product, or want a refund you will also need to take care of these items. So you will want to check your email periodically.
The advantage of this type of online business opportunity is that you usually get to keep 100% of the profits from any sales. In addition, you begin to build a list of customers (that subscriber to your ezine) that you can sell to in the future. So while this online business opportunity takes some time, money, and effort to set up and maintain it can be rewarding.
