Introverts like peace and quiet so I guess the perfect business for introverts would let them work in their own environment and in their own way. I’ve had many jobs and a couple of careers but didn’t really consider myself an introvert until more recently. I just knew I wanted to be my own boss, choose my own hours and not have to answer to anyone! That was my idea of heaven!

For me, the perfect business let me do all that:

  • Choose my own hours
  • No commute
  • No alarm clock
  • No boss

What Is The Perfect Business For Introverts?

I don’t think there is a definitive answer to this question. Everyone is different and ideally needs purpose and satisfaction from their career for it to be fulfilling. For introverts, working with others can be stressful too. But for me it’s a fine balance of working alone and having some interaction too!

I found an online business which, for me, is the perfect business for introverts. I can work in my own time and be my own boss. Whether it will work for you is debatable.

What Can An Online Business Do For You?

What kind of online business would you like? An online business can offer a great career and opportunity to work for yourself from anywhere in the world. But it requires hard work and patience. Luckily, patience is usually something introverted people are good with!

There’s many online business models and the one which has worked for me is affiliate marketing. I tried all sorts of online business strategies with varying levels of success and failure. Affiliate marketing has allowed me to work for myself and generate commissions for the sale of other people’s products and services.

So, affiliate marketing is a referral marketing business model which rewards affiliates for sending customers to various products and services around the internet. Affiliates work in a variety of different ways:

  • Bloggers – for me, blogging is something I enjoy and it can help me find potential customers for the products and services I recommend. I get to write about the things I’m interested in while helping people learn about something useful.
  • V’loggers – Video marketing is called v’logging. V’logging is a online marketing strategy which is used to generate traffic by creating videos and uploading them to YouTube. Successful v’loggers build a following and help them with their products and services.
  • List building – Many affiliates concentrate on building a lost of subscribers and marketing products to them with interesting and informative email follow ups. Join my list here.
  • Paid marketing – some affiliate marketers use paid marketing to get people on to their list to promote products. Paid marketing is one of the fastest methods of building an online business.

How Difficult Is Building An Online Business?

Building an online business isn’t easy. See How Difficult Is It To Make Money With Affiliate Marketing. It takes time and effort to get to the stage where you are actually making money from affiliate marketing. You have to overcome a lot in order to learn the strategies which work. Once you do though, you can benefit from the ability to scale up your efforts.

Joining an online community is an important step in the right direction if you want to take your online business seriously. So many people try to go it alone and end up making many mistakes which they could have avoided, if they just got the right information and reached out to ask for help. See Affiliate Mistakes Newbies Should Avoid.

I personally spent several years online making one mistake after another before actually getting the right help and advice and taking the best route for my own personal circumstances.
