When it comes to starting an Internet business, everyone looks for the best business ideas on the Internet. I want to describe some business models that you can use to get started, since they are some of the best business ideas on the Internet.
Internet Business Ideas That You Can Start Today. But before continuing, you should be aware that following these ideas is not without passion for them.
When you’re not passionate, don’t start an internet business based on one of these ideas! It is passion, which will keep your business running and it is passion, which will lead you to success!
Right now, more and more writers are following this business idea on the Internet. They earn money online through different platforms (see the list on the right).
What makes this idea so profitable is the pure mass of employers and projects. If you are a good writer, you can earn money online very easily.
Possible projects would be writing of advertising texts for bloggers and entrepreneurs, writing of catalog texts, advertising campaigns, specialized sites (see below) or content exchange platforms with Google Adsense or affiliate programs.
I will use this concept to earn money on specialized sites and with affiliate marketing.
On the right side, I have listed some platforms, where you can find projects or publish your content.
Creating a niche site is a famous way to earn money online. It is a successful Internet business idea and there are many tutorials and procedures.
The basic idea is to find a keyword with little competition, create a site, rank it on Google and monetize it through affiliate sales, Adsense or your own products. I am starting to build a niche site right now. If you log in to my newsletter, you will get all the steps I take. I will post my keyword, domain, etc. Only to subscribers during the process. In the blog I will show them when my site is live.
To create a niche site, you can follow the process I described on the left. There are three main tools, I recommend you use when creating a niche site. The first is the Google keyword tool, which is free to use. I am using Long Tail Pro and Market Samurai. Those are affiliate links, so I will get a small benefit when I decide to use them. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Sell your skills directly
One of the easiest and fastest ways to earn money online is to sell your services directly to customers. There are many platforms and networks where you can get involved in larger projects or do small jobs. Both forms will allow you to earn income online and it is not difficult to start with both. The sites where you can offer your skills are social markets and somewhat common work platforms. The best thing about social markets is that you can offer your less common skills. The more special a skill, the less competitors you have. You can be very creative with your services, such as acting as an amateur photo model in funny photos, painting funny logos, being a coach and any other type of service. Just think of anything you love doing.
Starting a membership website
Starting a website with a membership means that you generate monthly income. Your subscriber for being a member and, therefore, receive monthly payments regularly.
But before you begin, you must create valuable content that you can sell through your membership site and that people are willing to pay. Examine the market, define needs and pains in people’s daily lives.
If you can position yourself as an expert for your problems and solve them, you will be happy to pay for your membership website.
It is important that you deliver new and valuable content regularly. Why should people remain a member and not quit after the problem is resolved?
Ask yourself what you can offer people, create a closed community for its members and let them collaborate.
You will be surprised how effective this collaboration can be, if you can involve your members to help each other.
- You generate monthly income
- You benefit directly from your knowledge
- You build a great relationship with your members
- You enridge members everyday lifes
- You bring people together
- You’ll have to regurlaly update your content
- Membership functionality is not standard in WordPress
- You have to be known as an expert (though you need to consider yourself as an expert)
Write an ebook
Writing an e-book is a great business idea on the Internet to generate totally passive income online.
In my real eBook challenge, I will prove that writing an eBook is not as difficult as it seems. You just need to know how to write an ebook and then follow the process.
Define your audience, create a summary of the topics you want to cover and focus on the problem, your eBook will solve it for your audience. This is key, because every successful ebook provides enormous value to its readers. That’s all you need to get started, everything else will fall in part as you write.
Remember, you are doing the main job only once. When you finish your ebook, you can offer it on your website and sell it to your visitors. Isn’t it a big business on the Internet?
Nobody needs big publishers these days. Simply export it to pdf, kindle or .epub format and you will be ready to start.
There are many sites where you can get all the necessary information. The most important thing is: start.
- You generate 100% passive income
- You have lots of free resources available in the web
- You can sell it on your own website
- You can orient your topics on existings books and add the missing content
- Writing takes some time and can be frustrating
- If you miss your audience, you won’t make a single dollar
Affiliate marketing is an easy way to earn money online quickly.
Promote products, which are produced by others and earn a commission for each sale. The key is to choose the best products for your audience and promote them in the right way for your audience. On my Recommendations page you can see some of my affiliated products.
The best thing about affiliate marketing is that you don’t need your own website to get started. The table on the left shows some content networks, where you can publish articles and earn money with affiliate sales.
In an earlier post I explained how to start with affiliate marketing, so read this and you should be ready to start.

- You can choose from thousands of great products
- Many vendors provide ready-to-use content
- You may get contacted in regards to product support
- Some vendors have restrictions to their payments
- You fully depend on your vendors and have no control over the affiliate conditions
Software development is a great business idea on the Internet, because it is not necessary to be a programmer or have a lot of money. You don’t even need to know what your software will do!
This seems to be strange, so let me explain this to you.
At first, you choose your target market. Each software must fulfill a specific purpose, therefore, ask your target market, what function they need for their daily work.
You can do it as a survey by phone, because you will want to contact them personally and not by mail.
Be sure to understand the problem in your market and present software that does not even exist at this time.
You can offer some customers a premium cancellation with a single rate instead of a monthly payment. With these payments you can hire programmers, who develop the software that your customers need.
If you are not convinced, listen to this great interview by Dan Maxwell, who uses this model for his business.
- You don’t need to worry about clients
- Your clients pay upfront for a non-existing product
- You don’t need any programming skills
- You can outsource nearly everything and just be a manager
- You can build a system for automated customer support
- You will deal with some special customer support request
- Your clients will put pressure on you
- It will be challenging to manage the development

The Internet business is an excellent way to earn money online, but it will become a nuisance when you don’t have fun with your business.
