Scott Said:I am currently studying for cemap at home. How can I get into financial services sooner?
We Answered:The financial world is no joke, its better accomplished with a trunk full of skills, then a hedge of short cuts. You will appreciate the level of skill enduring the time, because your rewards are much greater not speaking of confidence
Jenny Said:Im looking to start a business out of the home. Need ideas on a service I can offer over the Internet?
We Answered:Ive been answering that question for as long as Internet has been Internet.
If someone tells you an idea and you build around it, it will fail. And most suggested sites are only good if you get into their program early otherwise you joining is only giving the person who recommends you some money cause its too late for you to do what they did.
You are going at this in reverse. What you will want to do is make a website that draws people on a certain subject. Build it, host it online, get it mentioned in forums and blogs, get it listed in search engines. To make money you can use commission and affiliate programs to link to books, videos, equipment, funny tshirts, bumperstickers, mugs on the subject. You can try those and write reviews rating them. You can start a discussion forum on the subject. Link to news articles. All of this can be done by paying for someone to do it, or do it yourself for free.
But the FIRST thing you need to do is pick the subject, then build a buisness around it. Not the other way around. It doesnt matter if its growing tomatoes or building a backyard catapult or training cats to use the toilet. It doesnt matter if its something you know alot about or something you wish you knew alot about. What is it that makes your friends groan whenever the subject comes up because you tend to get carried away talking about it?
Write down 10 things you know or want to know about.
Do some searches on the net. If you dont find one of them then you found a niche. JUMP ON IT. If you do find it then check out who comes out on top. Is it sites that offer commissions for sending people to them such as CafePress or Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Do you get the impression that you could sales-pitch the subject better than they can? Well they think that also. They know that a golf site will pitch golf books better than them so they offer commissions on links.
Pick a subject. ANY off the wall subject that you think NO ONE else has any interest in. This is Internet. Everything has more followers than you think. If you cant think of a way to build a site around it then come back and ask again with that subject.
