Create Your Own Shopping Mall and Work from Home

There's no disputing that the Internet has enabled hundreds of thousands of people to launch their own home based business. And, with the economy on the brink of recession, more people than ever before are looking for ways to supplement their existing income, to recover from a job loss, or to hedge against uncertain times. An Internet home based business offers a multitude of benefits. You can make your own hours, so you can work while the kids are in school or after they've gone to bed at night. You can avoid the time wasted by a daily commute and don't have to pour money into your gas tank going to and from work everyday. Best of all, you don't have to answer to a boss, because you are the boss! Because the amount of money consumers spend online is at an all-time high, one of the best businesses you can launch is an online shopping mall. While this seems counterintuitive - after all, where are you going to store all of the inventory? - many people are finding extraordinary success in selling online. What's the secret? It's actually pretty simple. You just need to find a supplier who will give you access to products that you can sell online, and then who will do the shipping for you. In other words, you don't have to stock inventory, you don't have to deal with packaging and shipping; you just need to sell the products. Ideally, the company you partner with should have 200,000 or more products from which you can choose. When you have access to that kind of inventory, you can become an eBay power seller or a star Amazon trader in no time at all. When you're looking for a company with which to partner, find one that has at least three different plans. One might be an auction plan, with a one-time set up charge and no monthly fees. You should have access to low wholesale prices and all of the company's products, with no minimum order. Another option might be a website plan where you get your own website pre-loaded with all of the products, where you can customize your website, and where no merchant account is required. A third option might be a website and auction plan where you can have the best of both worlds, and where you get a free domain and a free email account. Beyond the plan options, you should look for a company with no monthly fees, that offers free order fulfillment, and that will dropship every product you sell directly to your customer. In other words, you should be able to have a turnkey shopping mall that you can administer from home. All you need is a computer. As for the types of products you sell, there are virtually no limits. The best partnering companies offer hundreds of thousands of products in categories like apparel, computers, electronics, health and beauty, home and garden, jewelry, toys and games, and so forth. Typically, an online shopping mall that offers a wide variety of products is more successful than one that offers a small selection. Starting a home based business can be incredibly satisfying, as well as financially rewarding. The secret lies in partnering with the right company.

E-book Home Business

Financial freedom can only be recognized with hard work, innovation, and a popular - but reliable - product or service. But with an Internet business, these three often get clouded with having almost too many opportunities. You can easily get discouraged when researching the overwhelming number of business venues that are available online. But with e-books, many small business owners are discovering financial freedom while offering long-lasting products of value. E-books are electronic books that might contain graphics, photos, sound, and content relating to any subject. They can also contain links to various web pages for promotions or illustrations. It's very inexpensive to create an e-book, but yet people enjoy reading them every day. E-books are popular online because they are usually inexpensive or free and offer advice and tips on a variety of subjects. The subjects can be anything from "how to earn money online" to "how to start a home business." E-books may also cover more specific subjects such as "how to make money with a crafts business" or "cross-stitching tips for the beginner." The possibilities for e-book subjects are unlimited. E-book Home Business Facts Starting an e-book business means you are offering e-books for sale online to a specific target audience. You might sell only one or a few e-books, or you might even sell hundreds of them. The choice is yours, but of course, the more e-books you offer, the more chances you'll have to earn a lucrative income. Here's how it works. You'll promote your e-books using various techniques such as an e-mail newsletter (e-zine), search engine promotions, paid ads, and other methods. Customers will visit your website to read your presentation. When they purchase one of your e-books, they will download it directly from your website or from an e-mail. You can even automate the entire process to make things easier on you and the customer. The reason e-books are so successful for gaining financial freedom is because once they're created, you don't have to do anything except promote them. You can create an automated cash system that works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. E-books can be sold and downloaded by your customers while you sleep! Resell E-books to Earn Money If you don't want to write your own e-books, you can also create a cash system and enjoy financial freedom by reselling e-books that others have written. With this type of home business, you will purchase rights to various e-books, sometimes hundreds of them, and resell them as your own products. Keep in mind that other companies will likely be selling these titles as well. But the Internet is so big, there's plenty of room for everyone! Some companies provide business opportunities in which you'll receive a number of benefits along with hundreds of e-books to resell. These opportunities may cost a little up front, but are definitely worth the investment for starting your own home business. The e-book products alone can generate a very healthy cash system for years to come. As with any home business, selling e-books will take some time to build and promote. But once the ball's rolling, you'll enjoy financial freedom and success like never before!

Getting Your Business Online In An Hour

Are you in a hurry to get your business online? Do you have a limited budget but want professional results right away? In the past, this was an impossible demand but today, with the advent of website builders, it is not only possible but realistic. You can get a website up and running with no knowledge of HTML or any other web technology. If you know how to use a word processor, chances are, you can figure out how to use a website builder. Different website builders come with different capabilities but overall they are easy to use and quick to setup. Most site builders also walk you through the step by step process of getting your website live for the world to see. But can you expect professional results with a site builder? Most of them come with professional grade templates for you to choose from. Some customization can be done to these templates. Things like color scheme, logo graphic and the like are often customizable so that you reduce the chance that someone else using the very same site builder software will have an identical looking website. Using the templates that come with most website builders is actually a good thing. It keeps most people who are new to web design from committing some common web design errors. For most business sites, the bare minimum number of pages you'll want to have live is two. The main home page being your sales page stressing the benefits your prospective customers will get by doing business with you and a contact us page that will let your visitors know how to contact you. You could technically include your contact info on the home page and reduce your overall page count to one but it is seldom necessary to be so concise. Once you are up and running, you can always add more pages. Keeping your website creation project under an hour will require you to get to the point right away. Remember the difference between feature and benefit. Feature being what your product or service will do for the customer and benefit being what they will get from what the product or service does. Make sure to make a list of benefits to doing business with your company as opposed to another one. Make it easy for them to do business with you. With a website builder, getting a website up and running doesn't have to take you much time, money or grief and the results may impress you.

$3 Million in 6 Months With Adsense!

The Power Play Interviews: Markus Frind- $3 Million in 6 Months This is the first in a series of Internet Success Stories that you will begin to see on the Power Play Blog. Hope you enjoy them! Markus Frind, the creator of Plentyoffish.com is a success story worth noting, as he has managed to take a niche formerly ruled by giant corporations and give it his own brand of marketing savvy. A case of David vs. Goliath, where the little guy comes out on top in the end. Markus is the top "individual" adsense publisher in terms of pageviews. Lets find out what some of his secrets are as he shares some advice with our readers. Feel free to comment! Markus, what is your experience in computer programming and how did it prepare you for becoming a webmaster? The average pageviews a day is around 14 million for the last week. I'm getting another 80 million pageviews a day from users polling the site to see if they have new messages. Really intensive bandwidth wise! When I go to your website, I notice that the ads are targeted to my region, yet I have not even registered- can you explain to our readers how you accomplish this feat? I'm just using ip2location.com- Basically i take your IP, look it up in the database and it tells me what your city is. I then bring up a list of users in your city, nothing magical about it at all. Are most of your visitors coming primarily from search engines (SERPS), or are you finding that they come from other avenues? Do you actively advertise in the media? Search engines account for something like 2% of my traffic. The vast majority of my traffic, like any other site with over 5 million pageviews a day comes from word of mouth, and repeat visitors. The services on your site seem to be offered at no cost to the registrants. Is there some advantage you have over your competitors that allows you to do this? I've developed new algorithms that allow me to create a mega site for next to no cost. Several years ago I created algorithm that was thousands of times faster then the algorithm used in the 1990's to find a string of 22 prime numbers. At the time a professor used several super computers and hundreds of regular computers over the course of several years to find a record. I did the same thing on 1 computer in 2 weeks. Fascinating! Are there any other sites you currently maintain, or is plentyoffish.com the only one? Its the only site at the moment. I've got a few other sites I registered for friends so they could learn to do marketing/affiliate stuff. At this point i think 1 site is enough. Any tips for those looking to create a profitable endeavor on the internet? IF someone else thinks what you are doing is a cool idea I'd say it isn't... Find something no one else thinks is important and build up a site with big traffic in that area. Also keep in mind, sites that have low monetization today but have traffic may be the gold mines of tomorrow. In the internet world anything and everything will be monetized at some point and traffic is king. Traffic is King- very wise advice, Markus. One last question- How do you find the time to maintain such a large commodity on the internet? Surely you must have some other interests in life besides programming and website monitoring? It only takes a hour a day on average, but its very tiring work. I spend the other couple of hours reading and seeing what is going on.
