Business Ideas - How to make money Online and Offline - 7

Updated on May 5, 2011

Information Website – Do you like doing research and getting to the bottom of the matter. Do you like the thought of scanning online and offline sources to gather as much information about a topic as you can. If so, you can setup a website providing original informational content.

The website could be about any topic of your choice but if you want to monetize on it you will need to create a site that attracts sufficient traffic. A high traffic site can be monetized through having banners and advertisements placed on it. If there are products related to your website’s topic you could look to sell the affiliate products to earn an extra source of revenue.

Most experts would agree that the best way to create a good income through content websites is to cater to a niche and become a trusted expert on the subject. It’s also best to make sure that there are enough advertisers for the topic (a quick check through Google adsense can clarify this) and not too much competition for the topic (a quick look through the Google keyword tool.)

While optimising the website for search engine traffic make sure you add links to the site on articles on free article database sites like Ezine or Goarticles. Also make sure you promote the link by adding the link in your email signature and on social networking sites like facebook. And all this promotion will cost you nothing but a little time.

Teaching (on any subject) – Are you good at painting or other crafts? Are you an accounting pro? Are you good at calligraphy or dancing or singing?

Almost anything that you are good at, at which you can become an expert, you can teach. You could start off by taking classes of small batches in the evening after work. After some time once you become well known amongst the student fraternity and you start being approached by more applicants, you can look to quitting your job and entering the training profession full time.

Although in the beginning you may have to handle the entire show, the object must be to develop a model where you only need to supervise. Gradually you need to train other passionate trainers to take up the training work while you begin to move into more strategic roles for expansion.

Let’s not forget the power of the internet here. Although many subjects cannot be learnt without personal face to face training, some subjects can be learnt through online instruction. You could start an interactive online training programme or better yet a software that can take students through a structured training course that allows them to adjust the speed and intensity of trainings to suit their needs. Of course all types of online training would also need to provide dependable online support.

The beauty of such automated packages is that they can be used again and again after the initial training package is put together. But let’s be very clear about one thing here. Just putting together a bunch of theories in a disk will not create a world class training experience. You really need to put your heart into considering all the difficulties and doubts of your future students while preparing the package. It’s no easy task but can definitely pay if done correctly.
