So before I
go ahead in the explanation of these two businesses I want you to have these in
mind. And that is, the offline business depends on the course studied by
individual and sometimes the amount of money at hand while the online business
part depends on only the individual’s course of study.
You might want
to ask why it is so. Okay I can understand how inquisitive you are now……..so
lets’ continue to the explanation of these two businesses as I help you
understand why it is like so.

in the internet without getting to know owner or even the customer.
Advantages of online business
advantage of this category of business is that you will spend little to nothing
much trying to start one….. In order words it is known to be cost effective.
great advantage of this business is that it can be started by anybody anywhere
and at anytime, that is. It is not meant only for the students; any other
person can join the business.

every successful business.
thing about been an affiliate marketer is that it does not require any technicalities

And also it
can be done by the use of smart phone, tablet or even laptop.
AFFILIATE PROGRAMMES YOU CAN JOIN AS BEGINNER

many affiliate programmes you can join as a beginner, but in here am just going
to mention a few which will also be more profitable to you.

also be yours too only if you believe and determine because money does not come
as quick as you think………it takes time but it must surely come.
SELLING OF DIGITAL PRODUCT
remains another awesome way of making money in the internet.
The is the
act of compiling and selling of helpful information online such as courses and
books in order to make money from it.
these is just like the one my first book friend who is a writer did.
What he did
is that he wrote a book he titled the attractive man….attractive man was book
that teaches men about how to be the kind of man any woman will want to be
with, the book only has two hundred
On the very
first day Gerald published that book online he made thousands of naira just
only that day without any form of paid advert….. Its’ amazing right? Yes I know
But can you
guess why Gerald made that kind of money on that very first day? I know you
can’t even if I leave you to think about
it from now till next year you can’t come up with any reasonable answer…….but
anyways I will tell you the reason why.
One of the reasons
Gerald made such a huge amount of money on that very first is the approach he
What was the
approach he took?
Gerald as a
reasonable entrepreneur firstly understood what his facebook friends which is
also his clients truly needs.
Gerald used an outstanding persuasive write up which I call ad copy to make
sure that ignite the fire that made them to wait tirelessly until the book is
Then lastly Gerald is a good writer. Hope you grab the real gist now
probably know you can do better than Gerald dike in these. Only all you need to
do is find a topic that people wants to talk about and are really interested in
and compile a book or course about it. It might be a story or any other
information related thing that people are so furious to lay their hand and eyes
Selling of physical product
usually considered as a combo of both online and offline business. It is a
process of marketing your goods in the internet and gets it shipped to the
consumer as soon as it bought.
But in this
case of physical product you don’t just sell anything because it is
consumable….you only sells niche specific highly needed products.
So how will
you know a highly needed product?
You can know
those products that are highly demanded by doing what is called product
so there are
many product research tools which can help you do this research….in other words
you don’t need to stress yourself much all you need to do is search for the
keyword product research
tool on Google and you will see a lot of tools you can use for your
research then you can pick one of them and begin from there.
advert and selling
place to sell your product without having to spend nothing much is through
social media groups and forums like nairaland, facebook and other related social

beginner in the blogging world must take when their blog has reached the
eligibility state of monetization.

people advertise their product or services direct in your blog in exchange to
get paid by them.

So therefore blogging is the most outstanding way of making
money online only if you can be patient to build it .

daily for those videos whenever you enter and click to watch any of the YouTube
