5 Authentic Ways to Make Money With Your Blog

One reason that so many people want to work from their homes is that there is no need for a large financial investment to begin an online business.

One doesn’t need to invest heavily in product development. Those who have expertise in almost anything can begin by simply writing an e-book and promoting it or obtaining a website and promoting products that are produced by others.

5 authentic ways to make money with your blog

Think of the people who promote products that are produced by others as the “modern version of the old door-to-door salesman” except instead of knocking on one door at a time they knock on the doors of millions of people at the same time by way of the Internet.

The Internet isn’t called “The Information Super Highway” for nothing. A person can make a very good living selling nothing but information on it.

The populations of every industrialized nation in the world have learned that if you want to know anything about anything, you get on a computer and ask the question. They have also learned that you must pay for special information and they are more than willing to do just that.

A person who has special knowledge of a subject and could be considered a ‘guru’ has a market for selling that information on the Internet. All that needs to be done is to set up a website, publish the information, advertise and sell the information.

Where to Look for the Right Product Online?

When you are just starting your online business finding the right products to sell online is the number one problem. Knowing where to look can help.

  1. Drop Shipper Directories: Drop shippers are wholesalers that will ship direct to your customers so that you don’t have to invest in or store inventory. Directories of drop shippers are for sale online, but make sure you’re buying a reputable one.
  2. Local Businesses: You may find businesses in your backyard that offer just the right products, but are not yet into e-commerce. Offer to sell their product online in exchange for a percentage of any profits you make.
  3. Crafters: Local crafters are a good source of unique products, and may be willing to reduce their prices for you if you purchase in quantity. Either buy the item outright, or set up a consignment arrangement with them.
  4. Garage sales and flea markets: G garage sales are a good place to look for items to sell online. Do some research into categories that interest you, and then start scouring sales for good prices.
  5. eBay: eBay itself can be a source for products. Look for wholesale lots that can be broken down for individual sale.
  6. Wholesaler Directories: Your local library will probably have directories of manufacturers, wholesalers, and/or distributors. Most directories are organized by SIC code so that you can zero in on the product categories that interested you.
  7. Trade Shows: Trade shows are a great way to source products. Lots of merchants gather in one place to look for resellers. To find trade shows in a particular industry, contact trade associations and industry publications.
  8. Importers/Exporters: You might want to consider contacting companies that import goods from overseas. It’s possible to source directly from overseas. This requires a lot of expertise, but many companies do it successfully.
