Online Business Idea # 1 to Create a Small Business Online: Start a YouTube Channel!

Although this channel (currently) has less than 100,000 subscribers, it still earns tens of thousands of dollars a month.

The key is not to monetize with Adsense. Here at Wholesale Ted, we have adsense off. Why? Because you earn very little money: Earn only $ 1-2 per 1,000 visits for most channels. We also do not monetize with sponsorships as this is worth a lot of money, and we like to have control over the products we recommend / promote.

Instead, we recommend that you earn your money by promoting products / services you use / believe to have an affiliate program, or sell your own products / services through your channel.

And be sure to focus on creating great videos and content. If you give the viewer tons of value and treat the money as a secondary concern, you will earn a lot more money that way!

Online Business Idea # 2 to Create a Small Business Online: Become an Affiliate Marketer

An affiliate marketer is someone who promotes people's products. When someone buys a product because of you, you will get a commission cut on the sale. This can be as high as 50-75%. Our special guest Mark Ling makes tens of thousands of dollars every week just with this unique method.

As an affiliate, your sales are tracked through a unique URL. When someone clicks on that URL, they are "cookied". That cookie tracks them and means that the merchant can tell if someone bought the product after clicking on their link.

YouTube is a method you can use to generate traffic, but there are also several others, such as Facebook, Google Adwords, Google search free traffic, Pinterest and Instagram.

You can link directly to the product with your affiliate link, or you can direct people to download a gift as an ebook in the exchange to give you their email address. You can then email them for affiliate offers. We generally recommend this method.

Online Business Idea # 3 to Create a Small Business Online: Reselling and Retailing Arbitrage

This method involves finding offline items and reselling them for higher prices on sites like eBay or Amazon. There are two main ways to do this:

1) Find items in thrift stores / garage sales / Craiglist / buy and sell Facebook groups and resell them on eBay or Amazon.

2) Find the lowest priced brand new items in retail stores than at Amazon.com. Buy the stock and send it to an Amazon FBA store. This method is called Retail Arbitrage.

As Sarah said in this video, she does not do this anymore because she does not scale as well as some other methods, but she can still be a 6-figure business and she's a friendly newbie.

Online Business Idea # 4 To Create A Small Online Business: Sell Your Own Digital Products With Affiliates

What is even better than being an affiliate? Have affiliates sell for you! Here's how this business idea works:

1) Create your own product (for example, our special guest Mark Ling has an online course called Miracle Manifestation that makes tens of thousands of dollars each month).

2) Put it on a site like ClickBank, which has a huge affiliate pool looking for products to promote.

3) Affiliates drive traffic and sales to your product for you!

With the email list you build through your customers, you can use it to promote other affiliate offers as well. It means that you get to be a merchant AND an affiliate!

Online Business Idea # 5 To Create A Small Online Business: Dropshipping!

With this method, you can sell items without having to buy them in advance. Manufacturers that dropship will allow you to purchase items individually after a customer has ordered it, and will ship it directly to the customer. It becomes a great e-commerce method for people with little start up money.

Online Business Idea # 6 to Create a Small Online Business: Sell Products from China

With this method, you import goods from China. There are several ways to sell them:

1) Private labeling and sale in Amazon's FBA program.
2) Selling on your own websites (for even higher profit margins).
3) Combine with a digital product like upsell (and use affiliates to drive this traffic).

    1. Try this proved method that makes money online system,100% newbie friendly system, no need previous experience Just search Google, suludollarhome. com

    2. Thank You so much , i was feeling deepressed about getting some ideas then your video showed up:! You are so positive thanks

    3. did he say you can promote clickbank on Facebook?
      Im pretty sure facebook do not allow this.

    4. You're accent isn't funny, its really attractive.  Though, I must admit, I thought it was South African.  Always hard to distinguish between Australian/New Zealand/South African.

    5. Sara, tell me the truth—is it still viable right now to start an online Amazon business and make good money? Some people have been saying lately it's "too late" and Amazon, FB and Shopify are completely saturated. I am very interested in starting but really don't want to head down this road if it's far more difficult now or low viability. Thanks so much and appreciate your videos.

    6. Kia Ora Sarah. Ive signed up with Salehoo, Pro Merchant and FBA Tool kit. As I have filtered through my catalogues and compare the prices on Amazon, I do notice that some of the products already exist (Obviously). But there are no ratings which means the Amazon seller is new (like myself) or no one has purchased these items. In your opinion what would you suggest? Thank you!

    7. Hi Sara. I just subscribed to your channel. I have been watching your tutorials, I appreciate your genuine help, I like how you're not trying to sell anything like some others YouTubers. I need to start selling on Amazon. how can I have your help in the basics steps? thank you so much.

    8. Hey ted,love ur videos,they are very informative and educational,can you make a video on how to make ur own affiliate website and to promote it?

    9. Hey Sarah, do you still do dropshipping? Given that you are not a newbie in ecommerce business anymore? And thanks for the video!

    10. wow started drop shipping thanks to Sara for the push. Apart from Facebook marketing how can you get traffic to buy on your Shopify store? I can't stand the cost for now as my aim/goal was to start from $0 to $10,000. now my free period time will soon be up on Shopify with no sales yet.

    11. Thanks for making the video Sara. Love the professionalism and candid advice you are providing. Definitely help those interested to know where to start.

    12. Hi Sara, it's Maribel here in Canada. You are cute, sincere and love your accent. What is the website of Mark?

    13. I have a couple of questions like is it best to start a themed( harry potter) store or a niche( phone accessories) and how to test products?

    14. Hi Sarah, you look more beautiful today! Thanks for this video. Love your accent too.

    15. Hey Sarah! You said you did a course where you learned about esales and afiliate marketing. Can you link me to this course. Ofc I am willing to pay for it.

    16. How can you ask manufacturers, of particular products, whether they would drop-ship individual purchases for you? (If the owner of an on-line store can skip the charges of Amazon, then there is one less middle-man in the process.) What would be the percentage of commission in such a case?

    17. Kia ora Sara. I'm using your mystile woocommerce tutorial and I would like to Add Digital products to it but you didn't show how to Add them, can you tell or show how to do this?

    18. Sarah – you need to get the boss to spring for another dress 🙂 New Zealand my favorite country btw.
