If you were looking and I asked you what you were looking for, could you tell me?
would you be looking to work at home on-line part-time?
would you want your home business to be simple to set-up?
Would you like it to be low-cost?
Do you have a laptop you can use, and an internet connection?
Would you like the flexibility to expand it at a later date?
Would you like to work flexible hours to fit into your life-style?
If you’d answered yes to the above questions I would suggest affiliate marketing, as this is simple to start and run, it is low-cost, and can be flexible, but you would need to commit to spending some-time daily on learning techniques and growing your hobby business. Being involved every-day is much better than fits and starts!
It is best to start whilst you have an income from your current work as it doesn’t happen immediately you have to give it time and effort to grow and learn your new skills. A mentor to guide you initially will save you time, and trial and error as you will follow a proven path. Don’t reinvent the wheel.
Affiliate marketing is a system for sending customers to other people’s products, and getting paid, with no face to face selling. You don’t have to build a website unless you want to or deal with payments delivery or customer service. It is all taken care of for you. It is the simplest system I know for starting online.
Is this the kind of business you would be looking for? You can choose any niche or hobby that appeals to you; in fact it is better if it is a topic you are passionate about as you will enjoy working on it! Especially if later you intend to produce your own products.
There is a great deal of information available on the web, and YouTube and on Facebook groups, recommendation is always good.
