The internet is the great equalizer. In business specifically, it has leveled the playing field. Anyone castart a money-making online business—anyone with a computer, and Wifi, that's it. But here’s the thing: you don't need any virtual technical experience. Today there are plenty of tools you can use to build an online business that makes the technical work a lot easier than it was in the past.

1. Dropshipping.


Dropshipping is an extremely popular business model for new entrepreneurs, especially gen Zers and millennials, due to internet marketing skills far outweighing financial capacity. Since you don’t need to stock or handle the items you are selling, it’s possible to start a dropshipping business with limited funds.
An eCommerce website that operates a drop shipping model purchases the items it sells from a third-party supplier or manufacturer, who then fulfills the order. This not only cuts operational costs, but it also frees up your time to focus all of your efforts on customer acquisition.

If you are ready to start a business that can compete with retail giants, and do so on a limited budget, then follow the six steps below. While it doesn’t take a lot of startup funds to launch a drop shipping business, it will require an immense amount of hard work.
2. Affiliate Marketing. 
Once you’ve picked your hot market with profit potential, it’s time to figure what to sell them. Fortunately, you don't have to develop, produce, or even source your own products! There's an easy way to leverage existing products with a proven track record for profitability. It's called affiliate marketing.
With affiliate marketing, the products are proven to sell, and you won’t have to worry about delivery, storage, managing orders, customer service, refunds, or any of the other traditional aspects of retailing.
In an affiliate marketing business, you do the marketing and promotion of products through your e-commerce site, but the online retailer (or the company that created the product) handles the rest. And, as an affiliate, you get a commission (from 5% and up, depending on the product) every time somebody buys. This is a great way to get started with your business.
Amazon has a good affiliate program, with a huge variety of products.
Clickbank.com specializes in information products, although they have physical products too. You’ll also find big-name retailers on CJ Affiliate by Conversant (formerly called Commission Junction). But just about every niche and industry has an affiliate program. Do some online digging if these don’t fit your market or business.
3. Blogging.
If you love to write, then you should get into blogging. Blogging is a platform where you can share your thoughts. Since blogging is so flexible that you can choose and write about any kind of niche, whatever your passion is.
There are a lot of people who are doing blogging as there full-time job, and the best part is that they do it like 10-14 hours a week, that's crazy.
You can get monetize by Google Adsense, or you can just sell your own product on your website and you can do affiliate marketing as well.
The key is that you want to post original content that is useful to your target audience and to post on a regular basis. That is the best way to get ranked in the search engines and to also get your audience to take action.
4. Information Products.
When you have an internet business, it doesn’t have to be about selling physical products. In fact, digital information products are one of the easiest and quickest ways to make money.
There's no shortage of ways to create information products, but the most popular formats include:
  • Audio: a recorded teleconference, interview, course, or some other spoken-word product
  • Video: a recorded webinar, a how-to, an interview
  • Text: an ebook, an instruction booklet of some sort, a travel guide
In each of these categories, you can really get creative and make any type and format of content, as long as it’s engaging and useful.
No matter which way you do it, it’s passive income—money you earn while you sleep because you put these products up for sale on your website and a customer can buy and download them any time of day or night, automatically. All you have to do is check the sales periodically to see what topics or types of products are selling best so you can make more of those.
