What is the Best Online Business Model for You?
I am often asked what is the best model to use when starting a business online and the simple answer is the one that works for you. Sounds logical but the best answer requires a bit more explanation along with a few examples of the core types of businesses you should consider.
Here are five core business models for you to explore:
1.) Business Opportunities (Biz Opps)
- Direct Sales including top tier programs
- Network Marketing and Multi-Level Marketing
- Matrix Programs (Not money games, but programs with legitimate products that add value)
- Cash Gifting (I have never been convinced to try this model, but others who have done well here)
2.) Affiliate Marketing (My Personal Favorite)
- Big Ticket Programs
- Program Launches
- Continuity Programs
- Evergreen Products and Services
3.) Information Marketing
- Private Label Rights (PLR) and Master Re-Sell Rights (MRR)
- Create Viral PDF Reports
- Market Across Multiple Niches
- Audio and Video Products
4.) Membership Sites
Service Oriented Sites (Traffic, Advertising, Design, SEO and more)
Continuity Programs (Training and Resources)
5.) Auctions Online Sales
