The Internet has been a great economic equalizer, offering many entrepreneurs the opportunity to create niche businesses and to pursue their own fortunes with little risk. There is potential to earn income online that ranges from a few dollars a month to millions over a lifetime.
Your parents and high school teachers have convinced you to get your college degree. It will make you more marketable to employers once you graduate, or so they said. You’ve heard it one too many times, “No one can survive or compete in this economy without a bachelor’s degree.” Well, what about those long 4 years of being completely broke? Did your mentors mention how terrible that would be? Does it seem like the only employment options you have during your college career are waitressing/bartending at a restaurant? Or maybe working at the nearest fast food hub?
Compromising your weekends and dealing with tons of drunken college students at 3 am may not sound like your cup of tea. There are other options you can pursue to increase your cash flow as a student. These options will likely be more enjoyable, and all idealistic notions aside, will probably make you more marketable to employers in the future!

Once they know about your products, you have to make sure they understand why they need them, so you have a lot of work to do. To help you out, here are 9 tips for selling new products online that will help you with your next product initiative.

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, or at least very primitively for the last couple of years, I’m pretty sure you know what an online store is. If you’ve shopped online for any item, whether it be a physical item or an intangible(or one you can download that you cannot touch physically) one, then chances are, you were shopping at someone’s online store. While they look and act like a basic ‘web site’ there is one distinct difference between the two: ‘an online store has one main job. . .to sell products’. But, a web site is one in which there is many different forms of content, and can also include items that are being sold by the site owner.

I know its a freaky reality check in that video from me but you need to watch it today. Even better, watch it RIGHT NOW. See, success can sometimes cost PLENTY more than just hard work. When you’re getting the attention of MASSIVE amounts of prospects, you’re also getting the attention of CROOKS. Not to mention freaks and weirdos, but let’s just START with the crooks. There are crooks that will see you as the COMPETITION – and try to take what’s yours by throwing legal trouble your way. Even INNOCENT businesses can crumple under a costly legal battle. There are some crooks who will ENVY your success – They think the best way to get a taste is to just STEAL YOUR STUFF and use it for their own profit. AKA “scumbags” – I HATE ’em!
