The internet has been up and running for a few decades now, and more than a few people have taken advantage of it to earn a living online.
The landscape is constantly changing, evolving and growing, which brings up the question.
Is it still possible to start an online business and make money online in 2017?
It’s getting more competitive
As time goes on and the internet grows more information is being added to it, and more online businesses are being created each and everyday.
So does that mean that it is too competitive to even create a successful online business.
It is absolutely not too competitive and here’s why!
There are over 7 billion people on this planet, and an estimated 3.2 billion of them have access to the internet.
That number only continues to grow day after day, year after year.
It is never too late to start your online business and reap the incredible benefits of working online.
Anything Can Become A Business
I want you to take a second to think of that one weird thing that you are interested in.
That thing that you’ve just assumed nobody else really cared about.
Well I promise you that there are thousands or even millions of people that are interested in the same thing as you and you can take advantage of that.
Let’s say for example you have an obsession with picture frames.
Yes picture frames.
You love finding crazy, cool and interesting picture frames to hang your family photos in.
Well why don’t you turn that hobby into a business?
That is absolutely possible to do!
How Can That Be A Business?
Affiliate Marketing is basically just selling other people’s items online in return for a commission.
Think about it.
If you were to create a website where you found and picked out the coolest, best looking, and most unique picture frames and recommended them to people.
You could earn a commission for every person that went on to purchase them.
And it doesn’t stop there.
You could recommend whole picture frame setups.
Picture frames, shelves for them to go on, curtains and lamps that match them, the possibilities are endless.
You could even earn commissions from those online places that print off and ship out family photos.
You may even be able to land a sponsorship from them.
That’s literally just off the top of my head, I’m sure with research you could come up with plenty of other ideas.
Now I’m not saying that you should go into the picture frame business, but I just wanted to show you that anything can be turned into an online business if you know how to do it!
The best way to make money in 2017
What I just explained above is the best way for you to make money online in 2017.
Affiliate Marketing is an incredible online money making opportunity that you should absolutely take advantage of just like I have.
There is quite a bit that goes into it, but I promise that anyone can do it.
I started my online business when I was working a full time job and going to school part time.
I was able to build that business out enough to quit my job and focus on it as my full time job.
It wasn’t easy, it took quite a bit of work, but thanks to the training at Wealthy Affiliate I was able to become my own boss.
How to Succeed In 2017
It is certainly possible to succeed with an online business in 2017, and these are my biggest 4 tips for doing so.
This is my #1 tip for succeeding online and I’ll explain why. I tried for months and months with no success without training.
After attempting to make money online for nearly a year with no success, I gave up.
I was scammed several times, lost more money than I made, and wasted too many hours to count.
I didn’t find success online until I joined Wealthy Affiliate and put all of my effort into the easy website they walked me through creating.
Choose something you love:
This is something else that is incredibly important when doing affiliate marketing.
You will be spending a lot of time working in the niche that you choose and I promise it will be much easier and faster if you choose something you love to do.
Even if it is finding weird picture frames!
Treat it like a business:
When you create a website, you are creating a business so treat it like one.
Don’t treat it like a hobby that constantly gets put on the back burner.
Treat it like it’s the business that is going to change your life, and I promise you that it will.
Set specific times that you will work on it. For me it was every night when I got off work.
Set goals, plans, and schedules and I promise you will thrive.
Don’t Give up:
Honestly none of the other tips count if you don’t follow this one.
I gave up at one point, but luckily I didn’t completely give in.
The people who succeed online are the ones who persevere and never let the bumps in the road stop them from reaching their goals.
The one thing that every single person who has succeeded online has in common is the fact that they never gave up!
It is absolutely 100% possible to make money online in 2017!
You can help them with whatever they might need help with, and earn a profit while doing it.
Take the tips that I have given you and go out there and become your own boss in 2017!
