Finding business ideas:
1. Spend all day browsing Site For Sale forums (like the list we have here) for the myriad ways people earn money online. People looking to sell their sites actually tell you how they make money! Pick one that suits you. Research it a bit and away and start your own business. Or use a search engine to find ways to make money online. It seems to be so easy that it’s almost impossible to find someone who doesn’t know how to do it. (But why stop at one search engine (SE)? Most people get to less than 1% of the top qualify info they’re seeking because they use just one SE like Google, don’t have the vaguest of ideas of the advanced search features available and don’t know the benefits to be had using specialised SEs, local SEs etc. )
2. Bundle the two above to tell other people how to make money online. They always want to know. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know yourself, you can still charge them for it. I obviously don’t have a clue as I’m giving it all away. You can now ignore everything else I say. But don’t go spending money on internet cons promising to make you a millionaire and here’s how to spot them.
3. Be more inventive with your search. Look for small business franchise newsletters. Or for home jobs in your particular niche or hobby. (And check point #2 above for those specialised SEs). You can also go through the appropriate DMOZ categories (examples: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12)
But using “search” is just the start of the game. There are simply so, so many ways. We hope you hang around to find out.
4. Like the guy you can pay to stick a message in a bottle for you and throw it into the sea. He’s made tens of thousands of dollars already. And there are several others like him in all parts of the world. Do you live near a sea or river? Or join the cleanup of those bottles and get your council to contribute.
