Due to these profiles, you already have a base of friends, family and others who are connected to you and are interested in what you have to say. So why not use these connections to start up your business?
The easiest way to start up your residual business is to get paid to help company's advertise. There are sites that you can sign-up with that will pay you to post their ads on your profile.
This is fairly simple work, but not typically well paid, as you get paid for making the post, not necessarily based on how many people click. The company is taking a chance, as they could pay you and no one might click on the link. Depending on your profiles and how many sites you are on, you could put up quite a few ads a day and make a nice amount of money each day.
While doing this, you may find that you learn some things about marketing as well as different tips or tricks that will beneficial for you to build a different type of business. You may choose to build up your own business as the same time that you are doing these ads, as a method to help pay for your business or just as practice for advertising when you are ready to start your own campaign.
A great way to help you get your business started and to have those that follow you feel they are invested in it, is ask for opinions as to what type of business they think you would be good at. These people already know you, and know what your strengths and maybe weaknesses are, so they are qualified to assist you with this. It may also help you to get off the ground, as you can tell them when you open and ask them to help you get started.
If you don't want to poll your contacts, you can use the social sites to help you do some research on something that you may be interested in. You can put a post out to the world in a variety of ways and ask for opinions from those that are reading. This way you can get opinions from those that are not vested or have some experience and expertise in whatever area of business you are looking at. You may even find someone who is willing to help you by mentoring you when you are getting started.
Many people have a dream of creating a business online, and if it is one that they do not have to do a lot of work with, even better. This can be done but it does require some time and effort to get it up and running, but once your residual business is established, if you do this right, you'll be able to sit back and relax while you make money.
So what's keeping you from starting your business? How willing are you to put in the initial hard work?
