1. Low risk with excellent income potential
Making money online with information has a very low risk factor and high profit potential. With the proper approach, information products can generate revenue from around the world. Usually what people have most at stake is their reputation as a provider of high quality information.
2. Minimal start-up costs
If you already have a computer then your biggest investment will be your time, not your money. If you don’t have a computer or internet connection at home, chances are you can access one fairly easily on a weekly basis at either a library, community center, or a friend’s house.
3. Achievable for most people
People of all ages and backgrounds are learning how to start an online business. With help that is readily available, you have the potential to create a healthy income, even with limited understanding of computers or the internet.
4. Ability to generate passive income
Do the work once, do it well, and get paid for life. Passive income, also known as residual income, is money that is generated from the same source over and over again, with little effort to maintain it. Rental property income and royalties from hit songs or best selling books are common examples. Now it is possible for the average person to generate passive income doing what they love.
5. Helping others & making a difference
If you can legitimately help others with your knowledge, it creates a win-win situation. One thing is certain: you won’t succeed if the quality of your work or product is not perceived as helpful and valuable. Someone once said that life is a puzzle and that we each have a piece to contribute to help create a greater whole. Now’s your chance.
6. Own your own business
Many people gain financial control of their lives by developing a successful business of their own. While some are happy earning a few hundred dollars extra a month, other people set the goal of replacing their current employment income.
Note: Because this type of business can be grown flexibly in your spare time, it’s recommended that you keep your current job until your revenue reaches a sustainable level.
7. Access to a worldwide market
Theoretically you can connect with every single person in the world who uses the internet – approximately 1.6 billion people as of 2008. And you don’t even have to leave the house!
8. Work from home
You have the luxury of being able to work from home – or anywhere else in the world with an internet connection (including that beach you’ve always dreamed of…)
9. Earn money 24 hours a day by automating the order process
Most of the administrative work relating to ordering & delivery can now be automated. As a result, it’s possible to receive and process product orders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without being anywhere near your computer.
10. It’s FUN!
Sure, it takes a lot of work to get it off the ground but you get to spend your time thinking, writing, and learning about something you’re passionate about! It’s the passion that will carry you on when the workload becomes mundane… As someone once said, “Successful people do the things unsuccessful people don’t.”
