The best online business sells information products.
And here are the main reasons why,
- Information products have huge margins – Information products have high margins simply due to the low-cost to produce and other factors below. Please but be sure to sell/promote something you stand behind and not just push out junk as Wal-Mart already has a corner on that market.
- Information products solve a certain problem – People often go online to find products that can solve a certain problem or scratch a particular itch they have. If you can deliver a solution that they can’t find anywhere else, you have an excellent chance of earning the business. Let me say that again, if you can offer a solution that they can’t FIND anywhere else you’re golden. They need to find you and low competition is always better. An example of this would be Clickbank one of the largest information marketplaces. Wikipedia states:” In June 2011 the company claimed to have paid affiliates and vendors over $1.8 billion, processed 35,000 transactions per day, and generated over $350M in annual revenue.”
- Low overhead and little to no costs to ship – Shipping can cost a lot today. Here is where information products shine. In many cases you can offer a free download of the content immediately. Therefore, you should pick a product that is light, non-fragile, and easy to ship like CDs or DVDs if you are going to ship a physical product. I even recommend USB flash drives since they can hold large amounts of data and weight next to nothing. Best case scenario is online digital content that can be delivered instantly.
- Have some connection with the product – If the products are related to your hobby or your passion, it makes it easier for you to sell. I will say however you can always sell other people’s information products.
- A work at home business opportunity – You have the ability to work from just about anywhere if you own an online business. Your small business online allows your the flexibility to work from the beach or at the office. Heck you can even work like me in my slippers in my pajamas.
