3 Ideas for Becoming an Online Entrepreneur

online entrepreneurSince the birth of the internet becoming an entrepreneur has become a whole lot easier.

Instead of setting up a brick and mortar store, ordering inventory, and managing a handful of employees you can move your business online and run much of it remotely.

Plus the barrier to entry is low. You can get an online business up and running for less than $100!

Sound good?

If so, here are three ideas for becoming an online entrepreneur.

Commissioned Based Sales

When you hear commission based sales you’re probably thinking of independent sales companies like Avon, Scentsy, or Pampered Chef. While those companies can make you money that’s now what we’re talking about.

There are so many avenues for you to sell products online – and more importantly sell used items that your friends and family no longer want or need.

Since most people hate dealing with the hassle of listing their own products, communicating with potential buyers, and delivering the sale you can do this for them!

If you have a knack for selling items online charge your friends and family a fee for your service.

Simply gather their unwanted items, sell it online here, and then receive a small commission for your work!

If you book enough clients you could stand to make a lot of money!

Virtual Assistant

Do you love technology? What about social media?

If you like both you might be well suited to become a virtual assistant.

Virtual assistants simply help online businesses run more smoothly. Some of the tasks virtual assistants perform are checking and responding to email, scheduling social media postings, interacting with customers, and scheduling blog posts.

Since so many businesses are now online, virtual assistants are in high demand.

A Freelance Writer

The way we receive our news and communicate with the world has dramatically changed over the past ten years.

Instead of picking up a newspaper or turning on the TV we now turn to the internet to get our information.

Take this into account plus that fact that so many businesses are now online and the opportunities for freelance writers are plenty.

The pay for freelance writers varies greatly. You can receive anywhere from $10-$1,000 for one article!


There are endless opportunities out there for those who want to become online entrepreneurs.

If you feel like this is the path you want to go down, start taking action.

The sooner you begin your new journey the sooner you’ll be able to see profit and turn your online business into your full time business!
