“entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so that you can spend the rest of your life living like most people never will.”
So you’ve done the research, set up your online presence and even social media accounts. You’ve gone the extra mile and know exactly what to do to generate traffic. Except for one thing… you realize you don’t know what to sell. You can’t even think of a service you could provide. Things aren’t looking good for your business… but never fear! As with many dilemmas in todays world, other entrepreneurs have recognized this and provided many a solution. Below we will detail just a few ideas which you can use to generate some sort of income from your online presence or fully fledged e-commerce site.
Good old Affiliate marketing
This is not a new solution and has made many an entrepreneur a very good amount of money online. The trick however is to use the traffic one your site or social media page and ultimately supply them with the kinds of products or information that led them to you in the first place. If you have just started and are not receiving enough (or any) traffic, then first it may be in your interest to make use of content marketing and its ability to generate organic traffic to your site. Once you know what kind of people are ending up on your page and why, you can target them with a specific product or offer.

You can later turn this into e-books or courses which are hugely popular! Couple with this affiliate marketing opportunities now a days and you can reach more potential clients than ever before.
Sell the kind of products you want to buy
This one, although seemingly obvious, is often over looked! However, if you are interested in a product, especially of one of worth and that is in demand to many people, the odds are very high that you may know quite a bit about it already or that at the very least there is usually a lot of information and even reviews about the product online.
