How To Make Money Working Online?
To start an online business successfully you need to find an idea that matches your skills or education. Or find a new skill you are willing to learn. Only reading online articles to get a business idea is not enough, because most or all blog articles are based on personal opinion, own experience, and/or research.
I am writing this article to give you some ideas, but you must do your own research. Here are the tasks you need to do first:
- Write a list of niches you are interested in.
- Go to Google, Amazon, and YouTube and check if people are searching for those products or services eg: if you want to sell mobile cases, you may find many search values on google for the “iPhone 8 mobile cases” or “buy iphone8 mobile case” and so on. you will also find high video views on YouTube for the product review eg: Laptop reviews. With Amazon, you can see how many are sold.
- As a beginner try to select a product that is evergreen.
- Don’t go for a very cheap product or a very expensive one that will take a long time to be sold.
- After you decide on the niche, you will need to learn how you will market the product or service eg: list it on Amazon or eBay, start your own website, etc.
