    Are You In The Right Online Business?
    Copyright 2003, F. Terrence (Terry) Markle

    Did you select the right online business to pursue?  People that 
    are struggling find it difficult to admit they are possibly in 
    the wrong business.  Fortunately for everyone, many bad 
    decisions can be corrected if recognized early enough.  This 
    article is intended to help you understand the available 
    opportunities and hopefully improve your chances for future 
    Supply And Demand!
    Everyone knows that the Internet is huge.  Commerce (“buying 
    and selling”) on the Internet is growing by leaps and bounds.  
    It is controlled by the actions of the buyers and sellers.  
    There is no traffic cop that makes decisions for each buyer 
    and seller.  The buyers and sellers are fr*ee to make their 
    own decisions and pursue their own self-interests.  
    The Internet market is held in check by the economic principle 
    of “supply and demand.”  Buyers behave (demand) in a way to 
    make buying decisions that will maximize their satisfaction.  
    Sellers behave (supply) in a way that will maximize their 
    profits.  In a completely fr*ee market economy, buyers and 
    sellers interact to determine the price of the product being 
    Why Do People Buy On The Internet?
    In order to understand the actions of buyers and sellers on the 
    Internet, the following question needs to be answered: “Why do 
    people buy on the Internet?”  Simply stated, People buy on the 
    Internet because of the ease, efficiency, availability, price 
    and fun of purchasing the product or service online.   
    What Internet Opportunities Exist?
    There are many types of profitable business opportunities to 
    consider on the Internet.  The major opportunities considered 
    in this article are:
     * Join and promote an affiliate program.
     * Write and sell your own electronic book (“ebook”).
     * Start an electronic newsletter (“ezine”).
     * Open an online store.
    What Is Included In Each Internet Opportunity?
    The following is a summary level review of each opportunity:   
    1.  Join and Promote an Affiliate Program:
    In this business, you establish a relationship with the owner 
    of an existing online product or service for sale.  You become 
    an affiliate of the owner.  As the affiliate, you are allowed 
    to promote and sell the product or service for a commission on 
    the sale.  This can be an easy business to start.  It is a good
    choice if you do not have your own product to sell.  The owner 
    is happy to pay the commission because your sale is revenue 
    they probably would not receive without your help.  
    2.  Write and Sell Your Own eBook:
    In this business, you sell the ebook that you wrote.  Most 
    people believe they do not have the ability to develop a topic 
    and write an ebook.  This is an incorrect belief.  You have 
    the ability if you can think, speak and read.  The basic 
    requirements to write a successful ebook are: 
     * Need an objective.
     * Need to identify a niche market.
     * Need a killer topic.
     * Need the desire to write your thoughts.
    If you do not have the appropriate knowledge, you can develop 
    an ebook by using the help of an “expert.”  The “expert” 
    provides you with content for the ebook and you write the 
    3.  Start an Electronic Newsletter:
    In this business, you become the publisher and editor of an 
    electronic newsletter (“ezine”).  The newsletter can be 
    published as often as you like whether it’s daily, weekly or 
    monthly.  The frequency depends on how often you can deliver 
    content of value to your subscribers.  Distribution of the 
    newsletter through email is generally based on an “opt-in” 
    list of subscribers.  The typical newsletter will contain: 
    editorial by the publisher, tips and recommendations, featured 
    article, advertisements, and links to specific affiliations.
    4.  Open an Online Store:
    In this business, you either setup your own website store or 
    rent a storefront site in an established Internet mall.  The 
    Internet store requires a website, products to sell, a shopping 
    cart and the ability to accept customer payments.  It is 
    possible to have built-in traffic if you are part of an 
    Internet mall.  
    Each business has a definite set of activities to be performed 
    in order to be successful.  
    Your success in a specific business is dependent on how well 
    you perform these activities.  
    You should select an online business to pursue based on your:
     * Interests 
     * Motivation
     * Time
     * Energy
     * Commitment
    Make a complete evaluation of the opportunities available before 
    you make a decision.  
    Do not expect great results if you do not get excited about your 
    business and put the necessary time and energy into your online 
    Low interest, low motivation or low commitment will lead to bad 
    or less than acceptable results!
    Examine closely what you want to achieve out of your online 
    Take the extra time now and it may make a big difference in your 
    future success.  
    Make the right decision and you have a very good chance to 
    Make the wrong decision and you probably will fail like so many
