Internet Entrepreneurship

Mohamed Hesham

Internet entrepreneurship or making online business is so common nowadays. Some people depend on it as a main source of income, not only a side job. Others could make thousands or millions of $ out of it. There are many ways to make money online:

  1. Offer a service or a product on a third party website.
  2. Make your own website.
  3. Small tasks paying website

In this topic we will cover those methods, how to implement each one of them, and what can help you succeed online.

Offer a service or product in a third party website

If you have experience in a specific thing like translating, writing, web developing, customer service, or any skill, literally any skill, you can offer this service on freelancing websites such as upwork.com, freelancer.com, or many other websites. However, before you do so, you should ensure you have enough experience about the service you will work at, and write a good resume highlighting all your gained experience about that topic. 

The other way is to sell a product of your own in websites like amazon, eBay, Alibaba, Etsy, Rakuten, or many others. Products can be anything such as electronic devices, mobile phone covers, electronic books, hard copy books, 3D designs, high quality photos, simply anything. To do this you must ensure having a high quality product, because you will be in a global market with thousands or millions of competitors, so you have to take a step beyond them.  

 

Make your own website

This is one of the best ways to make money on the internet. When having your website, you will have your own portal to the world, so you can do a lot of things, and you can earn money by many ways. After creating your website and getting traffic on it by writing useful content, you can offer your own product or service through it, or you can earn money through advertisements, or through affiliate marketing (marketing others products and earning a commission), or by many other ways.

The best platform that can help you construct your own website is Wealthy Affiliate; it is a comprehensive learning program which teaches from scratch how to build your own business online, how to make a website without the need for coding (using their Site Rubix tool), how to write a good content in your website, and how to get it ranked in search engines using their Keyword Tool. After making your website and getting traffic on it using Wealthy Affiliate, you can choose the way you like to earn money through. However, the program will concentrate on affiliate marketing, which is a very powerful way of making business on the internet.

It is worth mentioning that I speak with this confidence about Wealthy Affiliate because I have already tried it by my own; this website and all the content and work written on it is, actually, done through Wealthy Affiliate.

Small tasks paying websites

On those websites, you can earn a few amounts of money doing small tasks, watching ads, participating on some surveys, playing games…etc. Yes, those sites are really available. However, you can not earn significant revenue out of them, unless you use their referring programs, in which you have to refer people to those websites to get commission.

If you depend only on the tasks and surveys, this will not be rewarding. Also, you have to be careful, because there are many scam sites on the internet; they pretend to give large payments for very small tasks, but in reality, they are just fake. An example of a trustworthy website from this kind is clixsense.com.

Conclusion

To sum up this post, there are many ways to make money online. You can use your skills to offer a service like translating, web design, programming, mobile apps developing, or even capturing photos, on freelancing websites; sell your own digital or physical products like books or mobile phone covers on websites like amazon or eBay; work on the small tasks paying websites.

Anyway, the best option, in my opinion, is to make your own website, which will be your portal to people everywhere in the world, unlike traditional business, in which you can open a shop or an office in a specific place in a city or town. Once you have your own website with significant traffic, you can start generating revenue.

If you have any feedback or want to add some information, you are more than welcome to leave a comment below. As I say at the end of any topic, we all have one goal: to help each other to become better.

    Hiya, you are right when you say there are so many ways to make money online! I have done many of the things that you talk about on this page, including online surveys, cashback websites, mystery shopping, online buying and selling but I think you are correct when you say that becoming the CEO of your own website is the best one, and probably the most enjoyable – because you can put everything into something you enjoy and it makes it so much easier to spend time doing it! It’s not easy but it is definitely worthwhile if you have the time and energy to put into it!

    • Mohamed Mohamed

      Yes, exactly, when you have your own business, you will give all the effort you can because you know that the output will return totally to you. Looking you have awesome experience in online business, keep it up 🙂

    I’ve seen the “small tasks” websites. I always question the worthiness. Does the time and effort you put into the surveys and other tasks give a reasonable ROI? I get the impression it doesn’t, since you mentioned the low earnings (other than affiliates).

    One other type of internet entrepreneurship I’d like to mention is starting an online business. This can be offered through your own website, rather than a 3rd party website. In fact, it can be a supplement to any 3rd party business you might receive.

    Thanks for sharing options with us.

    • Mohamed Mohamed

      I think it is not worth, unless you use the referral programs. Definitely, having your own website is the best options, and you can then use it in many ways.

    I also fall victim to paralysis analysis syndrome. While I was working for my university exam I realized that I I analyze more than I should and instead of analyzing I should have worked. I have actually another exam in 3 months and I will definitely follow a different path this time.

    • Mohamed Mohamed

      We all make mistakes, but we have to work for not repeating them again. Best of luck with your exam. It will go well this time, do not worry 🙂

  6. Mohamed, congratulations on your success! Your website is so inspiring, it makes me want to go into engineering. Thank you for the wealth of information and insight that you have furnished. Best of luck in the future!
