How to Start A Web Business

Updated on August 24, 2009

Starting a company is an endeavor that is the dream of many people. However, few people have the persistence and the drive that takes to build a new company.

However, these days it is not necessary to spend so much time and money in order to create a company that is really profitable. You can start a new business from your own home and make millions of dollars, while having fun in the process.

How To Start a Company From Home

If you want to start a company and don't have the required capital, you can start simply with a company that sells ideas, instead of products. The advantage of this is that you can just use a computer and your ability to write about some specific area as the the source of income.

Many people have started business with this plan. The resulting companies vary depend on how you approach the task of writing and helping other people solving problems. Some examples are:

Blogs: a blog is just a web site specialized in a specific topic. To make money with a blog you have to find a niche a write about that topic as much as you can. You can use a blog to improve your position on the market, of just to make money.

A blog can result in a lot of money if done well. Some people are reporting 6 or even 7 figure incomes from the results of advertisement in a particular blog. You can start with such a business in a few days.

Writing books and articles: if you want to go a little less public, you can start a business as a writer. To make money with this, you need to specialize in some area that is practical (no, writing fiction doesn't make money -- at least at the beginning). If you are passionate about an area, and you have time in your hands, you can just start writing articles, and eventually a complete book on the subject. You can be paid by assignment, and as time progresses you can get royalties for your work.

Writing software: these days, writing software doesn't require a high degree. You can go web sites like rent a coder and contract software developers. You can also get work on such web sites. If you are able to learn how to create basic software, you can make a small fortune in web sites like this.
