Online businesses which can effectively fetch in money include businesses such as taking surveys online for money, getting paid to promote websites, blogging, freelance writing, selling products and services online amongst others. This takes us to e-commerce businesses.
Electronic commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services over an electronic network which in most cases would be the internet. E-commerce can be a business to business (B2B), business to consumer (B2C) or a consumer to consumer (C2C) transaction.
There are quite a number of e-commerce companies which have made striking impact around the world: Amazon, eBay, Jumia Market, Etsy, OLX, Konga, Jiji, and many more. These days a lot of people have moved to selling goods and services online on these already established e-commerce platforms.
Apart from saving you the stress of overhead costs and logistics involved in setting up a physical store whilst eliminating likely financial risks, setting up a virtual store in an already available e-commerce site can be a great business to venture in and in the long run, a great way to make money online. Harnessing e-commerce sites enables a potential seller reach a much wider coverage of sellers and with the growing popularity of the internet, it is possible to grow this business much faster than ever before. Moreover, taking advantage of these social online marketplaces would mean that technical aspects such as search engine optimization, marketing, customer service, operations, delivery, sponsorship advertising and many more would be handled by professionals whom you wouldn’t need to worry about and at the same time, you can easily focus more on other parts of your business such as growing your brand and business.
To sell on any site of your choice, the homepage of the given site usually would have a ‘how to sell’ link on the footer. This link has all the information needed as selling modes differ from one e-commerce company to another. Most times, you would have to register and set up a shop on the platform. Commissions which you would have to pay differ from company to company and they usually depend on the type of item you wish to sell.
Another way to make money online is to subscribe to affiliate programs. Affiliate marketing is strategy adopted by e-commerce companies in which they sell their products by signing up individuals or companies who market their products. These individuals and companies are called affiliates and for every product they market successfully using their unique affiliate code, they get a commission. Therefore, all you have to do to make money here is: get a buyer for the products on the e-commerce site and take a commission on the sale which has been referred by you. Just like selling on an established e-commerce platform, becoming an affiliate marketer comes packed with a lot of goodies. Some of these goodies are you don’t have to worry about shipping, cost of logistics, income on the side and the ability to work from home.
In conclusion, making money online can be worthwhile and it can give you your needed financial freedom. Moreover, you enjoy being your own boss and you can enjoy plenty of free time to pursue your other passions.
