What Is The Best Way To Start An Online Business?

With the economy the way it is many people are looking for alternative ways to make an income. So naturally they look online. I know that there are a lot of scams out there but if you look hard enough there are legit programs out there that will teach you how to make money online.

So what are some of the ways that you can make some money online?

I won't go into great detail but here are some of the ways you can make money online:

Affiliate Marketing, selling other people's products
Selling Your Own Created Products - whether it's an ebook or other craft related products
Selling A Service - if you have skills, this could be a good way to get started.
Selling Other People's Products - creating a theme site with products that are drop shipped directly to the customers so you don't carry inventory.

The 2 best ways, in my opinion, are:
1. Affiliate Marketing - setting up a website where you market other company's products and get paid a commission. The Super Affiliate Marketers Handbook is a good reference for this method
2. Selling a Service - Your skills could demand top prices if you have what it takes.

So where can I get the right training to learn this stuff?

There are many programs out there but the two programs that I know that are legit are the chris Farrell membership and wealthy Affiliate. Just to give you a little backround on both sites:

The Chris Farrell Membership If you are just starting out in trying to make money online or you have tried and failed the Chris Farrell Membership will give you a foundation so you will not be lost. This site is geared towards the beginner Im talking "I only know how to check my e-mail and serf the web. So if you are just starting out with affiliate marketing this is a good place to start. I also want to point out that if you don't like to read text based instructions you don't need to worry because most of his teaching is done through video. There is a lot more I would like to list but if you would like to learn more click here.

Wealthy Affiliate - This site is still geared towards the beginner but it is a lot more in depth. They cover everything from:

•All levels of training
•Video training, Tutorial training, and Courses
•10,000′s of community members
•13+ Full, Interactive Classrooms
•Live & Interactive Help
•2 Free Websites
•State of the Art Hosting
•Access to Industry Experts
•A strict spam free environment.
$0 Membership. Yes, FREE!

The only bad thing I can say about it is that there is too much information. A person who is just starting out might get overwhelmed with the amount of information that's in there.

Here is a video walkthrough of wealthy affiliate
