Sell your current product or service online

If you already sell a product or service online, you can take your existing business online by building a website and selling your products online. You will be able to reach out to a larger number of people with less than half the costs you incur on your existing offline business. You can also have your own affiliate program which your visitors and other interested persons may join and sell your products for a commission.


If you do not have your own product to sell, you can always resell from an existing online seller or join affiliate programs. Most online sellers have affiliate programs and you can sell/recommend their products for a commission.

Home Party Plan Businesses

You can join one of the direct sales businesses as a consultant or representative and make money selling their products and recruiting new reps. You can choose from a wide range of such businesses depending upon your choice and interests.

If you do not currently sell a product and would like to sell your own products, you can easily go in for electronic products like ebooks, software etc. You can either choose to write an ebook yourself or get it written professionally.
