Starting an Online Business

I remember when I was first interested in starting an online business I did not know where to start.  I needed to learn how to make money from home and the internet seemed the most logical format.  I knew I needed to find a product and put up a website but I didn’t know the first thing about how to create a website much less what kind of product I was going to sell.

I racked my brain for information that I could write about, something that would be interesting and valuable to someone else.  Strangely enough, I could not think of anything that I thought someone would pay for.  Pretty sad, huh?  I thought transcribeme? See this review  perhaps I could pay someone to write for me but that seemed like a huge expense at the time and I just never pursued it.

I kept looking for an “in” into how to start an online business and I finally found it.  My whole business took off when I found that I could use products that other people have written and actually get them at an affordable price.  Private Label Rights products are just that.  Someone has taken the time to research for popular niches, study a subject, write an eBook report and then create a web mini site with a sales page and order links.

The producers of the Private Label Rights (PLR) products make money by selling the products to a limited number of wholesalers and then those wholesalers sell them to their customers who want to make money on the internet.  Now you might think that this would flood the market with those particular products, however, with millions of potential customers it would be very difficult to “flood” the internet with any one product.

Reselling a PLR product allows you to modify the product or the mini-site in any way you would like.  Obviously you will want to put your name on it but if you want to add to it or break it into several smaller products that is your right as well.

I have since created a few of my own products because I saw a need in the marketplace.  However, it takes at least a month to get the product ready, then there is the writing or purchasing of the sales letter and then another month or more to finish the website.

With the PLR product already written and the mini-site already created you can spend a few hours modifying them to your criteria and then get to work on generating traffic.

You save countless hours capitalizing on the use of other people’s time and efforts.
