More and more churches are discovering that it’s easy to leverage the internet to raise money without compromising their values or vision.
There are so many benefits to starting an online business! Here are our top 10 reasons you should consider it.
Niche marketing is the opposite of mass marketing. It means to focus on a very narrow and specific topic or theme. For example, the general subject ‘Dog Grooming’ has a large, general focus. ‘Poodle Grooming’ narrows it down but ‘Toy Poodle Grooming Tips’ is a niche market.
Blogging is a great opportunity to express yourself and share it with the world. The majority of blogs are non-commercial and more or less serve as a personal online journal or diary. Only a very small percentage of people who commercialize their blog are financially successful, but it IS possible to make money by blogging.
Before you create your own information products, it is imperative that you understand the marketplace; the types of products do well, how they are pitched, landing page options, price points, formatting & delivery options, etc. Don’t underestimate the power of doing your homework.

Whichever one you are most comfortable with offers you the same opportunity to make money.
If you’ve never done this before, expect a learning curve. While it is a fairly simple process, don’t assume you’ll hit the ground running right away. But don’t assume you need web experience to do this either – because you don’t. You may need some help but the good news is that it already exists in many forms.
You can connect with people anywhere in the world. Your area of expertise may only interest a small market, but it’s a BIG world! Even a tiny piece of such a large pie can be extremely profitable. Never has there been more opportunity for entrepreneurs to build a profitable and legitimate internet business on their own terms.
