For those with more than a passing interest in the Internet, the thought of making money online regularly crosses the mind but the “how” remains a mystery to most. Website investing could be the answer to this problem and I will attempt to explain why, and how.
To start at the beginning (bear with me here) most people who use the Internet have at some stage bought something online – product, service or information. Naturally every such purchase has meant (at least) one person receiving money.
I say at least one person because even if you buy from a big online company like Amazon, chances are you arrived at Amazon via a review or recommendation from a third party. Often that third party is registered with Amazon and gets a commission based on your purchase. This is one of the most common sales models on the Internet and is known as affiliate marketing.
My mention of affiliate marketing is to let you know there are many ways to make money from owning a website. However the knowledge and time involved to get a website to the stage of earning income is beyond most people, and even when would-be online business people have a go at it, they fail. In fact, it is estimated around 98% of online businesses fail – much more than the conventional bricks and mortar variety.
So, if it is almost prohibitively difficult to get a website up, running and making money, is there an alternative?
Well yes there is – website investing.
Website investing is now a mature strategy for building a full or part-time passive income via the acquisition of an existing online business.
A website purchase can range in value from hundreds to literally billions of dollars, and to be successful at any level you need to understand how best to identify, value and then actually buy the web business.
Beyond that, your level of involvement in the business can vary depending on the state of the website you have purchased, your personal situation and online knowledge, but the opportunities are boundless.
It goes without saying (almost) that to go through the process of acquiring a website requires getting the right information and advice to help avoid the pitfalls and ensure a wise decision is made up front.
