- You can become a ‘drop shipper’ and sell other peoples goods around the world. You send customers to another company who fulfills the order.
- You can become an affiliate marketer – sending visitors to other people’s online digital products
- You can build an ebay based business buying and selling on the auction website.
To make the most of your online efforts you need to use the built in automation which is a huge benefit of the internet age. The internet can give you:
- Complete time flexibility allowing you to choose your own hours
- The ability to sell almost anything through a website and earn commissions on sales (even if you don’t own the product or business).
- The ability to reach a global audience
- The ability to specify the audience to which you are targeting your products/services
- The ability to communicate to thousands of people at once with a single email through email marketing
What makes an internet business one of the best expat opportunities is the ability to work remotely from anywhere. All you need is an internet connection and a laptop!
Email marketing is one of the major cornerstones of online marketing. It allows you to build a list of subscribers and communicate your message directly to them without having to continually attract more website visitors. As you build you list you also build your audience.
Do it right and you can sell thousands if not tens of thousands of products with a single email. The sheer scalability of email marketing makes it one of the best ways to build an online business. But let’s have a look at how we can use email marketing to sell online products.
Affiliate marketing lets you promote other people’s goods and services around the internet. You don’t need to personally own anything and you can make up to 50% commission on various digital products. Digital products tend to pay more than physical products do, although you can sell physical products too online.
With the right kind of digital products you can earn commissions on a monthly basis for each sale. Membership commissions can give you an income, rather than a single commission. These are the kinds of products to focus on to make your online business more stable and lucrative.
