Top 7 Online Business Ideas In 2020

by James F. Executive at Go Custom Boxes


Before you start browsing through various online business ideas, you must first be well aware of the basic start-up rules. To start with, you should never lookout for a get-rich-quick scheme because there are none. There are plenty of programs and ‘systems’ that guarantee that they can help you make a millionaire overnight.

I may sound harsh, but all such programs are indeed scams. No matter which type of business you start over the Internet, it takes time to build up. It requires a lot of hard work with consistency. But yes, once you reach a stage, many businesses may start generating a massive passive income, but it takes a lot of time, patience and hard work to reach that stage; nothing happens overnight. Next, it is also important for you to keep in mind that every niche is different and so must be treated differently.

Just because a few techniques have worked for you in a particular niche, it does not mean that it will work for all niches. It means you will have to choose and use your techniques very carefully. Most importantly, you must also have good knowledge in Internet marketing, pname com facebook orcasocial media marketingsearch engine optimization and the basics of HTML. Likewise, keeping yourself up-to-date with the latest developments in the online world (such as the change in page-ranking strategies of search engines) is also very important.

Last, but not least, you must also have the skills to identify your target audience and you must work wholeheartedly to establish yourself as an expert in a tight niche. Now that you are aware of the rules, here’s the list of top 7 internet business ideas that you can run right from the comfort and convenience of your home.

Freelance Services

One of the best and most popular online business ideas is to start offering professional services on a freelance basis. Depending upon the kind of educational qualifications and skills you have, you can offer your services in an array of fields, such as writing and editing, translation, website designing and development, SEO (search engine optimization) consulting, graphic designing, and even telemarketing and plenty of other such things.

Lance and other such freelance networks can be a great place to start with. There are plenty of websites like Lance that provide a wonderful platform for both service providers as well as clients to come together. Clients submit their projects, and you can place a bid on them. In the beginning, when you are a new face in the industry, you may find difficulty in winning bids, but if you are consistent in your efforts, you will not only win bids but will also establish yourself as a subject matter specialist.

It is just a matter of time. It won’t happen in a day. As said at the very beginning of this article, it takes time and a lot of hard work to build any business even if it is internet-based. Your online presence also matters a lot; so, make sure you have a website that explains your qualifications and skills and the kind of services you provide. Do not forget to include clients’ testimonials as and when you get them; it will increase your credibility.

Google Ad sense

Many top online business ideas are based on Google Ad senseYou can run websites, blogs, forums, article directories, and even a social networking site and make money from Google Ad sense. As per this program, you can create Google ads and put them on your website; when visitors click on those ads, your Ad Sense account is credited with a few bucks, which can range from just 2 cents to 20 dollars (even more in some cases). The amount of money you earn per click depends on an array of factors, such as the niche you have chosen, the placement of ads and other such things.

But, you must still follow the basics, which is – offering quality content to your visitors. The higher the volume of traffic on your website, the higher your Adsense revenue will be. Remember, there are certain guidelines that Google requires you to follow. If you violate the ‘Ad sense rules’, Google may ban your site. 

Affiliate Marketing

The list of top online business ideas cannot be complete if we do not talk about affiliate marketing. Unlike Google Ad sense, where you make money every time a user on your website clicks on the ads, affiliate marketing generates revenue for you when the users perform a specific action, such as filling a form or making a purchase. The good thing is that the payment here is much higher than what you earn in an Ad sense program. If you perform one sale, you can get up to 70% commission, which can range from $5 to $500 (in some cases, even more). Affiliate marketing programs allow you to sell products of other merchants. You can join those merchants as an affiliate either directly through their website or an affiliate network, such as Click bank. In-depth knowledge in advertising and sales is crucial to ensure success in this field.

E Bay And Auction Selling

If you are looking for the best online business ideas, you can also consider selling or reselling products through several auction selling websites, such as Amazon Auctions and eBay. An online marketplace like this allows you to use a drop-shipping service, buy goods at wholesale prices, and to sell used goods. The ‘eBay Learning Center’ is probably the best learning resource if you want to learn how to run an eBay business successfully. To ensure success in this field, you must be highly skilled in customer service, sales copy writing and merchandising.

E commerce

If you have a product of your own, you can also consider starting an eCommerce website, which allows you to sell your products through your website. This option is also viable for those who can offer a technology-based service. However, before you start exploring the online business ideas in the field of eCommerce, you need to understand that running an e-business is very much like running any brick-and-mortar business. You must have entrepreneurship skills. You must know how to deal with your customers, how to ship products, how to retain customers and how to maintain the quality of your products.

However, you can also make things very easy for yourself by choosing to sign up for a drop shipping service; this way you will not need to manufacture your products or handle the hassles of packing and shipping. You can simply sign up with a wholesaler, and every time you get an order from a customer, you can pass the order details to them and they will pack and ship the products to your customer. You charge your customers at a retail rate and pay the wholesaler the wholesale price of the product; the margin between the two is your profit. So, drop shipping is very much like running an online retail store without worrying about the hassles of maintaining inventory or handling packing and shipping of products.

Start An E-Coaching Program

In the last few years, running an online coaching program has also emerged as one of the most popular online business ideas. But this option is viable for those who are experts in their chosen field. There is a very large volume of Internet users who surf the net to look out for solutions to their specific problems that they are facing in their profession, business or even in their personal life. If you have relevant professional skills, you can start selling the solutions to them. Some very popular niches in this field include health care and weight loss, business consultation, online businesses, self-improvement, leadership skills, making money online, internet marketing and an array of other such fields. Your success will depend on whether your target audience trusts you as an established subject matter specialist in your chosen niche.

So, you will have to work hard in building that trust. A few basic steps involved to start an e-coaching business include running a blog (with high quality, professionally written content), building your portfolio, designing and developing your products in a professional way, building a mailing list, and promoting your career to potential clients.

Curriculum Development, Instructional Design, JCPenney credit card login, Tutoring and Educational Consulting

With the advent of e-learning, the Internet is now also being used as a global classroom for educational purposes. If you are a professional in the field of education, you can turn your skills into money by offering your valuable services online. There is an endless array of opportunities available out there in this field. For example, you can start working as an educational consultant. You can become an online tutor or an instructional designer. T options are unlimited.

There are plenty of other online business ideas as well that you can try, but the ideas mentioned above are the top ones in the present scenario. But, there is one thing that you must always keep in mind – it is not easy to make money online. It is just like running any other business. Your success will depend on how hardworking and skilled you are.
