Home Business Ideas | 3 Top Online Home Business Ideas

by Alex

Home business ideas abound when you first start thinking about it. You could baby-sit for the neighborhood, maybe bake some cakes, offer your services to be a dog walker, set up a neighborhood car washing service … the ideas are endless.

But here’s the number one problem with all of these ideas. You don’t get to leverage your time. In effect you’re trading time for money and there are only so many hours in the day you can work.

If you’re OK trading your time for money in the short term, then definitely do what needs to be done … but if you have the option to LEVERAGE your time I would recommend that you start looking at online home business ideas.

Just over two years ago we were faced with the cold hard facts that our commission only jobs that had paid us very well for many years were never going to pay us well again.

We started looking at home business ideas and nothing really appealed … until we found the online world. That’s when we had our light bulb moment. If we could just work out how to make money online by implementing the laws of leverage, we knew that we would be able to not only replace our commission only income … but quadruple it if we could plug into the right system.

So, in our search for online home business ideas we came up with our top 3.

1. Online Trading with eBay and Amazon

home business ideasOnline trading with eBay has seen a lot of budding internet marketing entrepreneurs go from earning a few dollars on the side selling a few household items, knick knacks, children’s clothes and toys to making hundreds of thousands of dollars when they learn how to market on the internet to create massive leverage. If this excites you then definitely check out “How To Make Money on eBay” by Rob Palmer.


home business ideasOnline trading with Amazon is another path you can travel. Once again, many top internet marketing entrepreneurs I know have started their online careers going to Amazon, finding hot ticket items that are trending and jumping on that trend. As with anything there is a learning curve involved with both which is why I recommend you starting with these reference books so that you can a feel for the lay of the land.


2. Become a Virtual Assistant

If you have great office skills, social media skills, blog writing skills you can offer your services on sites like oDesk, Freelancer and Elance to name a few. You’d be amazed at job opportunities open to you there. Simply get registered, create a resume of your skills, decide your hourly rate and away you go.

3. Become an Affiliate Marketer

This is where the big money is online. Affiliate Marketing literally means you take someone else’s product and get paid a commission for selling it online.

Probably the most well-known place to get started in Affiliate Marketing is with Clickbank. Simply sign up for an account, choose a category you like, select products that appeal to you and then go out online, create traffic to your offer and bingo! You’re an affiliate marketer.

This is without a doubt the best way to LEVERAGE your time.

The best way to market your affiliate offers is of course to have your own site.

The quickest way to get online is to build a blog. You can get a free blog from WordPress, Blogger.com  or Weebly or you can get a blog from Empower Network with viral features built into it. Your options are endless.

Don’t know how to blog? That’s fine … we’ll teach you how here.

When it comes to Affiliate Marketing, make sure that you are being paid at least 30% – 50% commissions. Anything less is not worth your time.

One word of warning … 

The saddest thing I see in this industry over and over again is good, honest people looking for home business ideas and a legitimate way to earn some extra money and then simply give up because they either didn’t find the right system or they find a system and decide that it’s just too hard.

We spent over two years trying to find an Affiliate Product and System that would allow us to massively leverage our time.

Whichever of these home business ideas you choose to adopt just remember that with any home business it takes time to build. Rome was not built in a day and neither will your home based business be. Think long term, treat it as a business and not a hobby and I guarantee you that you WILL succeed. There is no failure in this industry … only quitting leads to failure.

Good luck and if you have any questions please do fill out the Contact Us form on the right hand side of this post.
