11. Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is one of the most popular and most profitable computer-based businesses to start. It works well as a side business or as a main source of online earnings though it may take a while and some mastery in the art of online selling to succeed at it. What makes affiliate marketing a good ‘starter’ business, of sorts, is the fact that you don’t need to develop your own brand, goods, or services to earn. You simply earn from referrals and commissions for connecting a seller to a potential buyer, kind of like an in-between sales guy. If you have little money to start your own business and you have a knack for selling things, then this is one of your most profitable business options.
