Options for the Online Entrepreneur

It is a fairly easy decision to become an Internet Enterpreneur. Just name yourself one and start working right? No. It is not easy as that. It involves lots of work, risks, and losses in times where you miscalculate demand or the quality of your product. Having said that, it has a lot of positives such as being free to do what you want, having power over your workers, being able to get very good money for the products  that you sell and lots of other benefits i won’t mention.

But this articles topic, won’t be “Should i be an enterpreneur” (We wrote an article about that earlier ), but about what to do as an entrepreneur to put the foundating stone of your businness/es.

There are many online niches to start in from exciting to downright boring, and i will state a few of them today.

So here they go:

1 – Article Writing

Article Writing is one of the most popular niches on the Internet. Lots of websites need original content for their website in order to gain a good page rank and a good count of visitors. Businesses are desperate looking for content writers that have SEO knowledge. You can either write free flow or content based on keywords. Another thing is that you can take big article writing projects and have some other freelancer do them for cheaper, gaining you a profit from it.

This is called middle management around the internet, and i have a Romanian friend called Ilie who makes money from the age of 13. Very great mind indeed, and he doesn’t need money from his parents by that age thanks to online article writing. It is very easy to get in because there is lots of demand for cheap work by new freelancer ( with only requirement for them to be original).

2 – Data Entry

Data entry is the job of taking data from one place and entering another. There are millions of freelancing data entry specialists from under-developed or developing countries working for the developed countries, and for new online entrepreneurs like you.

You can hire lots of freelancers from countries like India, Kenya, Bengali, Philippines, and the like, and have your big team of workers at your command, and sail in the ship of projects to get your money. I have seen teams of 200 freelancers working on a single database (each of them in their number of items to work on). Simply amazing.

3 – Web Development

This is a little bit harder but manageable as you have to learn some of the web languages, plus some marketing to go with it, but if you read up enough to get an idea of what should be done, it’s all good. You can manage teams of 5-10 programmers ( my project manager Dane, does this pretty well ). The projects are very well paying but it requires good programmers and good management skills on your part.

A project goes from 300$ to 5000$ and beyond. You need to have some good reviews to get the bigger fish though. It is a very nice business to start in periods where there is demand for it.
