    There are lots of business models that work on the internet. If you're just getting started, you should listen to a podcast called Internet Business Mastery. They talk about how to start from ground zero and build a membership site on a niche topic that you choose, usually something you are passionate about.

    Or you should investigate affiliate marketing. You'll find lots of information on how to drive traffic to sell other people's products and make money.

    You may try to be,
    - A writer for articles and earn decent amount.
    - Work for earning commission through web hosting, products and many more.
    - Post to host, earn money and free money.

    You cannot have strong cash-earning in the beginning. It will take you time to understand how the site earns and gives back in return to your work.

    Thanks for asking your business questions Entré. I would suggest that you should start off by thinking about what interests you and what you believe you could be very good at doing.

    Think about things you have done in the past that you really enjoyed or where success came to you naturally, without appearing to require a great effort on your behalf. Ask yourself what would you spend your time doing, if you were absolutely guaranteed that you would be successful at it and have an abundance of money. What would you do if you won a huge lotto? When you are a bit clearer on what you would like to spend your time doing then start looking for ways to make money from it.

    You will have a much greater chance of success and feel more inspired and motivated, if your business is focused on doing something you really enjoy and in an area where you have natural talents.

    You might find some of these Featured Threads helpful as a source of ideas on how to make money online and there are some great links in our Useful Business Resources / Links thread.

    Good luck with everything and please keep us updated on your thoughts and progress.

    Hi

    Here are a collection of 8 Internet business ideas to get you thinking on how you might make money at home with an Internet business.

    Unfortunately, too many people think they can just buy into someone else's system and make money on the Internet. If you do your planning and you can be patient, you can be successful with any of these 8 Internet home business ideas.

    Building websites is an exploding industry with abundant opportunities for the technically driven and curious. And, you can market and handle all of your projects through the Internet. Just remember that the competition is very strong.

    A resume writing service can make a great Internet home business, especially when many people are looking for work during economic hard times, but also in the good times when those already employed are looking for advancement.

    Thanks
    Have a nice time ahead.

    Making your own website or blog is a profitable internet business now a days and require little money. If you have a website or blog you can provide your services on it and you can also do marketing of other people products on your website to get commission.

    And there are several ways from which you can make money with your website. But keep one thing in mind that after you have finished making your website you are not all done, the main thing is to get visitor so you have to do lot of marketing to get visitors.

    anissa34, over the last ten years I've made a very successful living doing just that.

    With a slight difference.

    The reason why many budding entrepreneurs trip up here is because they are looking to build a successful business from scratch based on somebody else's ideas, designs and strengths. However good the intentions of the teacher, you are more likely to be successful when you're building your business based on what you know about and what you like working on. Too often these gurus research keywords to find popular ones, build a turnkey site based on that keyword and sell it as a package with an ebook or two on making money from websites. I believe that 99% of those ventures will fail.

    In my case, I realised early on that a substitute to the long hard slog of building a profitable web business ... involved capital. If you're got a bit to invest there are plenty of successful businesses/websites that others have built up. Buying them and maintaining/improving the earnings is a darn sight easier than being the hero and doing it from scratch. Some of them sell for as litle as a few hundred dollars.

    Affiliate business is, in our opinion, a nice way to make money on the Internet.
    But in order to establish it, one requires time to learn skill.
