The creation of the internet and the mass production

of computers in the late 80's changed everyone's

lives forever.  Now, everyone has the potential to

be their own boss whether you are a stay home mom

or a manual laborer.

opportunities and it will bring up more than you

could ever imagine.  Even though you may think it's

easy to make a living on the internet, it actually

requires a firm business plan and a lot of hard


You can run an online business with your current

job, and your potential market is a lot bigger than

the average stores.  

The first thing you'll need to decide is the type 

of business that's right for you, then research

the market.  The possible business choices open to

you are:

1.  Affiliate programs

2.  Adsense programs

3.  Selling products

Affiliate programs will pay you a commission for 

selling company products.  You'll have no contact

with the customer, as all you do is provide sales

leads to the company of whom you have to be an

affiliate for.  

Adsense programs are where you take an existing

website you own of a particular subject then add

contexual adverts from Google's adsense program.

When someone clicks on an advert you'll receive a

few cents.  

The final method is selling products.  You'll build

a website with a shopping cart then give as many 

details as possible about the products.  When

customers buy products, you'll receive pay based

on what you sell and how many.

When it all comes down to it, you'll need to set

up a business and web site to get the most from

E-Commerce or affiliate marketing.  It'll take a

lot of hard work and dedication - although it'll

prove to be well worth it.
