10 Great E-Commerce Businesses You Can Start Now

If you've been thinking of starting a business on the web but you're not sure what type of business to start then this article is for you. You could be wasting valuable time trying to make your first move. There are thousands of opportunities on the web and this article is meant to show you just a few great ideas that could help you get up and running with your very own e-commerce business.

The act of running a business over the Internet offers many rewards. For one, it dramatically reduces your startup and overhead costs while simultaneously expanding your target base. You literally have a global store when you operate an e-business.

Starting a business over the web isn't free. However, the costs involved with starting these businesses don't have to deter you. You could start an e-commerce business with as little as $500, possibly even less. Putting away a few dollars each week could get you at the $500 mark in no time. So let's work from there. You can start any of the businesses I've mentioned below or you may even have some ideas of your own.

  • Clothing retailer of all types
  • Educational courses
  • Diet and fitness information and products
  • Web design templates
  • DVDs and videos of all sorts
  • Credit repair advisors
  • Data entry services
  • Web designers
  • Telephone answering service
  • Photography services, stock images
  • To reduce your start up costs with any of these businesses is really quite simple. It's important to set up a strict budget and stick to it. That part may sound easy but many people make the mistake of spending money without accounting for it or continuously buying advertising without a set strategy.

    If you don't already have a computer, use a friend's or visit your local library or Internet cafe. You can also buy used computers for less than $200. They will be outdated but you'll still be able to log on to the Internet and create documents.

    Some other suggestions on how to save money include using a web template until your business becomes more established. And remember, for your web development needs there are tons of free applications available. Check out http://sourceforge.net to get started adding more functionality to your site.

    The above list is a great place to start if you're thinking of starting a business over the web. They also are affordable and relatively simple to start. If you need additional information on any of these businesses a quick search on your favorite search engine will provide you with more information than you thought possible. Good luck!
