The Best Business in 2018 comes down to Two Choices! What will yours be? Do you know if you are making the right choices? Great questions when it comes to any business in 2018 or beyond. Let’s see if we can clarify a few things and get you off to a great start this year.
Have you been thinking about starting your own business this year? You might have asked yourself, where do you start and how what and where do I begin. Hopefully, I can help answer some of your questions.
The Best Business in 2018
I am going to suggest two of the easiest and least expensive ways to begin a business from home without purchasing any products yourself. Will there be costs incurred along the way? Yes, but that should make sense to you. I mean you are looking to start a home business for the same reason as those that are teaching you how or offering you the platforms to make it simpler, correct?
Of course, it is. They have to put food on the table for their family just like you want to do. I know, it is a pet peeve of mine that so many people have been led down the garden path paved in gold! The rainbow is not at the end of that road and the sooner we accept that nothing is ever going to be 100% free and clear in a business then we are off to a good start.
Costs incurred are not always necessary right away. There are ways to try things for free and know before you commit that this is something you can see yourself doing.
Let’s Get Down to Business and the Real Deal
The two choices I am sharing with you are:
#1. Affiliate Marketing
What is Affiliate Marketing? In the simplest definition, it is a way for a company to sell its products by signing up individuals ( YOU ) also known as (“affiliates”) who market the company’s products for a commission. … As the individual, you get paid a commission from the company whose products you are recommending on your blog or website.
Now, that is the simple form. Where do you find these company’s and how do they pay you? Again, let’s go for a simple explanation. There are company’s that act as the go-between of you and the products which is the easiest as there are so many company choices in one place.
You must apply to each company you wish to be affiliated with and they will look at your site and say Yay, or Nay. It is usually a Yay unless it is a very large conglomerate who demands a lot of traffic already established. You are assigned a number also known as your affiliate ID which is used on your site so that if someone visits your page, clicks on the product you are sharing you get paid a commission.
One or two of the more known sites/platforms like this are ShareaSale and Linkshare or Rakuten. There are a lot and easy to find once you have some knowledge under your belt about how this actually works.
Amazon is another that offers an affiliate program and many bloggers and marketers use Amazon. For Digital only they use ClickBank. Each is basically the same as you having an affiliate ID attached to you so you can be paid.
# 2. DropShipping What is drop shipping?.
In simple terms, drop shipping allows you to sell products online, without you actually having to store or ship the inventory yourself. There is no third party commission being paid. You are paid directly by your potential customer. Your ‘job’ is to place their order with your supplier, pay for the product at your costs and the supplier ships direct to your customer.
product cost to consumer= $20.00 Your cost to supplier=$10.00 Your profit $10.00
Are you Interested in learning exactly how dropshipping works? If you are there are again two ways that I will suggest you pay attention too. Yes, one is Shopify. Very well know and trusted by not only the person looking to start their own business but by the consumer. They have excellent marketing and equally excellent training and help available to you.
Oberlo is connected to Shopify and is free to set up. As is Shopify free to try for 14 days. I tested this and yes, you can set up a shop in less than 14 days so you know ahead if this could be for you.
Here is how it looks:
Oberlo-Alliexpress-Shopify ( Alliexpress is where you will find the best certified and trusted suppliers out there. And you need to know you can trust them!! Imperative)
Now the second way to go about this is if you already have a WordPress site or you at least know how to set up a WordPress storefront or blog. Alliexpress is also Alidropship which allows you to purchase ( a one time fee) plugin that will set up the integration of products to your site plus many other added extra features. This is the lowest cost I have seen in all of the drop shipping platforms and the one I trust the most other than Oberlo and Shopify. It all comes down to a matter of costs and your knowledge of WordPress.
They also offer a one time set up where the site (storefront) is all done for you. This is again a one time cost but much higher than the plugin of course. If you do not know what you are doing, this is the route to take and is worth your hard earned dollar going out ONE TIME.
And Yes, they offer all kinds of help, training, and updates you may need. You will never be totally alone figuring things out. That is their promise.
Shall we Do the HOW now?
The what and where is covered pretty much as it is made simple and easy to understand. The How is a little more time consuming and you will need a few things to complete this and be successful if you want the best business in 2018 to be yours.
c. Afford $49.00 a month for 3 to 6 months while learning
